Creating a Home-From-Home

How to make your self-catering apartment feel more like home

Renting self-catering holiday apartments has never been such a popular option. We are all catching onto the joys of being able to cook for ourselves, have complete privacy, have more space and – let’s face it – pay a lot less than hotel rates. But how do you make your holiday apartment feel just like home? Here’s a few tips.

Make it smell like home

This may seem like a strange recommendation, but your own home has a distinctive smell. It’s usually your washing powder and your cleaning products, so it’s actually really easy to recreate that scent when on holiday.

Our serviced apartments in Windsor are equipped with incredibly useful home comforts like washer/dryers and ironing boards. When you book a holiday in one of our apartments, you can pack light and just wash clothes when they are needed again. And this has the added bonus of making your apartment smell just like home!


As well as washing, bringing a familiar air freshener or scented candle can help to create a home-from-home. Also, sticking to your regular shampoos and body washes can contribute to that familiar feeling of home.


Cook for yourself

Surely this is one of the great advantages of booking into one of our self-catering apartments in Windsor. Our kitchens are fully equipped with everything you’ll need to cook up a storm and recreate some of your star dishes while on holiday. There’s no need to spend a fortune on eating out each night and if you have small children, or are staying for a longer period of time, self catering facilities are an absolute essential!

Even though our apartments come fully stocked with pots, pans and cutlery, if there’s a particularly favourite kitchen tool you just can’t live without (your mother’s old potato peeler? Your indispensable cheese grater?), consider packing it (probably in your hold luggage!) to help you feel truly at home when catering for yourself.
