Triple sheeting beds for your vacation rental is definitely easier to manage at turnover. However, there are a few important things we discovered while testing this method at our own property. Things to consider:
- Type of guest
- Whether you offer daily maid service
- The length of stay.
Although simpler, it is an odd way to make up a bed for most travelers. The average person is not familiar with the method and frankly may find it messy and strange after a few nights sleeping in the bed.
So… if you have adults visiting on short stays or you make up beds daily for your guests then by all means this is the way to go in your vacation rental.
On the other hand, if you accommodate families for more than 3 nights and you don’t make up rooms during their stay, then I urge you. DO NOT consider triple sheeting!
Our experience has shown that with longer stays and without the help of cleaning staff, your guests will become frustrated and your duvets will inevitably become soiled.
If you decide to opt for the triple sheeting method, here are a few ideas or modifications to explore to help keep your guests happy and comfortable.
Consider still using a fitted sheet as your base layer.
Try defining top layer by using a striped sheet. See Striped Sheet As Cover
Only triple sheet for short stays or if you offer daily maid service.
Only triple sheet for adult guests.
Don’t triple sheet unless it’s easy to TUCK all of those sheets in (no flimsy bed skirts)
