Guest accommodationsHoliday gatherings are best when you’re with all the ones you love, so ensure that your second home has comfortable and well-appointed guest accommodations. You’ll find spacious guest rooms and bunk beds at every Pacaso home — all equipped with quality mattresses, cozy bedding, extra pillows and more.

Festive decorationsTransform your second home into a holiday wonderland by decorating it with festive décor. This includes holiday-themed decorations like wreaths, ornaments, garlands, candles and twinkling lights. Having a Christmas tree, tablescape or other holiday focal points can create a warm and inviting atmosphere. While Pacaso does not provide holiday decorations, your home is professionally designed with furnishings and decor that can pair with your holiday decorations. Plus, every home includes a private storage locker for you to store decorations handy.

Well-equipped kitchenA fully stocked and well-equipped kitchen is a holiday host's best friend. Make sure your second home's kitchen is ready to handle holiday cooking and baking with a range of cookware, bakeware, utensils, and appliances. Be sure to have enough dinnerware, glassware and silverware to serve meals to your guests. As a Pacaso owner, you can expect a beautifully designed kitchen stocked with high-quality pots and pans, premium cutlery, bakeware, premium countertop appliances and everything you need to make some of your warmest memories.

Entertainment optionsTo keep your guests entertained, you’ll want to provide a variety of options. Board games, card games and a curated collection of holiday movies can keep everyone engaged. If your second home is in a location with winter outdoor activities, consider providing equipment for sledding, skiing, or hiking to make the most of the season. When you own a Pacaso, entertaining the family is a piece of cake. Every home contains classic games like Jenga, backgammon and playing cards, and select properties even have a theater room, pool table, ping pong table or foosball table. Some of our ski homes also include storage space for ski equipment.

Extra seating and dining spaceHaving enough seating and dining space for your guests is a must. Consider investing in folding chairs, cushions and additional dining tables. A well-prepared dining area makes your holiday feast the centerpiece of the celebration. You’ll find vast dining tables, spacious islands and large decks in every Pacaso home.

Fireplaces and fire pitsIf your second home has a fireplace or fire pits, make sure everything is in good working order and stocked with firewood. Fireplaces create a cozy ambiance and serve as a gathering point for your guests. Create inviting nooks and seating areas near the fireplace to encourage relaxation and conversation — like this inviting fireplace and seating area at West Shore.
