I fully furnish, equip and decorate vacation and executive rentals and I wrote a book about how to do that in 5 days.  Besides improving short term rentals by preparing, consulting (both online and in-person), researching and writing I am a wife, a mother, a friend, an explorer, a risk taker and sometimes a pollyanna (I say "sometimes" because I am unreasonably optimistic only occassionally).

I've got a slew of information to share with you.  FF&E is filled with information on how to: 

  • create a short term rental you can be proud of and that will not only attract and retain guests, but have them coming back as repeat tenants;
  • have greater confidence in your inventory purchasing decisions - knowing what, when and where to purchase;
  • keep on task and stay organized saving invaluable time and a considerable amount of money;
  • increase your chances of success in offering a unique and appreciated guest experience;
  • diminish negative reviews and increase positive accolades, plus so much more.


"Not only does Anita help inspire ideas to set your vacation rental apart from the competition, she also outlines an approach to help owners and operators make it happen. If you’ve tried to decorate an entire home based on what you think the renters will want it can be very overwhelming and costly. FF&E, Furnish and Equip Your Vacation or Executive Property in Five Days is truly a “how to guide” for anyone wanting to improve their competitive edge" - Geronimo Vacation Rentals For Charity.
