Vacation Rental Tune-up. With quarterly or semiannual vacation rental tune-ups, we enhance the job your cleaning service or handypersons are doing by bringing to the table - the creative eye of a home interior redesigner, the skill of a professional organizer, and the precision of a detailed cleaner. Let's face it, quick guest turnarounds mean that items will be damaged or go missing and the little details can be overlooked. Add salt air corrosion and natural wear and tear and it's easy for your rental to need some special attention. Our study of Maui area short term rentals found that even great reviews often included a mention of "dated decor". That's where VRT comes in.
We do the shopping! As avid recyclers, our first choice is to save you money while helping the planet and this island, by introducing discounted and gently used home accents and furnishings, that are sourced, inspected, refurbished, and delivered by VRT. We specialize in turning Lanai's into relaxing outdoor living spaces and full room makeovers!
The smallest updates to your vacation rental can increase your income, boost your bookings and lead to positive reviews! If you've been thinking of enhancing your guest experience, then now is the time!

This client was overwhelmed with decades of her and her family's accumulation. Her front room had become a "catchall" and she needed to purge. We reorganized & decluttered, and then she wanted to bring vibrant color into her home environment, so we went to American Furniture Warehouse and found the teal seating. Sourcing online, I added the gently used seating, storage and pieces needed to finalize her full room redesign. She had the carpets cleaned, and was thrilled with her ARM makeover, which was completed in 3 days and within her limited budget!
(See texted testimony below) She loved it so much, I ended up redesigning
3 additional rooms in her home.

"You don't know what an injection you did for me, because I was going bonkers up in here, with the house how it was looking. I just love it when
I go through the living room and the dining room...it's like a breath of fresh air. Thank you for being an inspiration in my life. "

We do the shopping for you. As avid recyclers, our first choice is to save you money while helping the planet and this island, by introducing discounted and gently used home accents and furnishings, that are sourced, inspected, refurbished, and delivered by VRT. Need lighting or more seating? Do your pots, flatware or linens need replacing? Are your Lanai cushions faded, and your artwork bland? Post assessment, we detail your inventory needs, introduce home decor products, replace bygone decor, and bring in the accessories that makes a space feel homey.
With guests in and out and quick turnarounds, order and functionality can be lost. We declutter, re-display, and make sure your rental is functional and efficient. We respect and want to enhance the work your cleaning service or handypersons are doing, by catching the little things with a detailed follow-up cleaning. We use biodegradable/natural cleaning products whenever possible.
"Renee knocked this out of the box! I had a limited budget and 4 guests due in within 24 hours. We came home from the airport and I couldn't believe how put together my lanai was!
"This is what I saw when I got to my sublet...a lanai that had clearly been walked by and ignored every day, except for storage duty. With some thrifting and using accent pieces they had around the house, I created a whole outdoor room. They now say they look forward to having friends over!
Growing up, at least once a year I'd come home from school and every room in the house would be completely changed around. We didn't have the best, but my mother knew how to make the most of her Herculon couches and mix-match pieces. It always felt magical to have a renewed living space, and it taught me that you can enhance a room just by shifting the layout and accessories. I walked into my first thrift shop at the age of 19, had a eureka experience, and since then thrifting has been my passion and hobby, as well as the way I provided for the needs and comfort of my family. My mission is to enhance your properties living environment, while promoting recycling and helping the planet.
With frugal shopping skills and a great eye for design and decorating, I earned the nick name 'The Bargain Queen'. In 2016, I joined KUHS Denver Radio with my weekly talk radio show "Making a Way with Bargain Queen Sheryl Renee" which streamed internationally, every Wednesday for a year. During the pandemic, I utilized that time and got my certification as a professional organizer. Four decades as a professional entertainer, exposed me too stunning venues, homes, and event decor designers, which further fueled my interest in transforming living spaces, and in late 2019, I launched Affordable Room Makeovers, LLC, which was derailed by the pandemic.
After 24 years of visiting and loving Maui, I am delighted to now be a full-time resident, ready to make a positive impact on this amazing island! I'll be documenting and sharing "Relocating on a budget!"
