Providing Linens for a rustic rental

AirBnB emailed me the other day that as of July they will be requiring all rentals to provide linens. I contacted my independent cleaner, and he's willing to do the extra work, but we need a good system. I have 4 rentals from 1BR to 4BR on a lake in a very rural area.

* no washer/dryer on site
* limited indoor storage space
* 15m to a sketchy looking laudromat
* 30m to a decent looking laudromat

Has anyone designed a good system for similar conditions?

TIA,
-JJ

Re: Providing Linens for a rustic rental

Not sure if this would even be an option for you but ...... When I had a private lady clean my condo in Myrtle Beach, I purchased 3 entire sets of linens for all the beds / baths / kitchen. She kept set one locked in the owners closet for emergency use, set 2 was in use by the "current" guests and set three was taken home by her and washed / folded at her leisure.

She would just exchange sets 2 and 3 every turn over which in my case is every Saturday.

We used Amazon to deliver replacements to her home when needed.

We are in TN smoky mountains and everyone here provides lines, towels , and starter supply of detergent, TP and paper towels. In some cases owners buy their own linens. I do not - I have them provided by housekeeper's company. Housekeepers are laundering linens offsite and it is included in costs of cleaning. If you buy your own linens, you need to have several sets so that housekeepers can change them and take soiled ones offsite to launder at their convenience.

Yes, thanks!

We don't have dedicated owner's closets in every unit, so I think I'm going to end up buying a shed, 3 sets of sheets for every bed, and some mouse-proof boxes to store the extras in. I think my cleaner will be good with this plan.

thanks,
