Questions to ask yourself before you rent a backyard for a party
Before you start searching for a backyard venue rental, make sure you’ve answered these important logistical questions for yourself:
What size backyard do you need?
You can find Peerspace listings with a range of capacities, from fewer than a dozen people to hundreds of guests at a time. It’s wise to establish at least a general idea of how many people you plan to invite to your party before you start looking for a venue, because this is crucial information that determines your budget and the size of the backyard you’ll be searching for.
Once you have your party size nailed down, Peerspace allows you to filter your search results by venue capacity (we’ll go into more detail about this and other filters in the last section of this post).
Where and when are you planning to have a party?
Obviously, if you haven’t chosen a venue yet, you won’t know exactly where your party will be located—but you should at least know in what general area you intend to search for venue rentals. Likewise, on what date and at what time do you plan to throw a party? Knowing the date/time allows you to narrow your Peerspace search results down to show only venues available in that time frame.
What amenities and other features are priorities for your party?
On Peerspace, you can filter your search so that you only see spaces that include a variety of amenities, including a deck, fire pit, grill, gazebo, pool, and more. You can also limit your search results to a certain style (such as “bohemian,” “beachy,” “rustic,” etc.) or to venues with different kinds of outdoor spaces, like a lawn, a garden, a patio, a rooftop, and so forth.
Now that you’ve established some basic logistical parameters for your party, you’re ready to start searching for a backyard for your party. Read on for an overview of how to use Peerspace to do that!
How to rent a backyard for a party via Peerspace
Begin your search on the Peerspace homepage, inputting the kind of event/activity you’re planning (in this case, a party) as well as the location where you’d like to search for venues (this area can be as general as an entire country, or as specific as a certain neighborhood in a city). If you’ve also decided on a specific date and time for your party, you can enter both of these in the search bar, too. Once you’ve inputted this initial info, click the “Search” button to see a list of all the Peerspace listings that fit those parameters.
But you’re not done yet! The next step to finding a backyard via Peerspace is actually specifying that that’s what you’re looking for. To do so, click “More filters” at the top of your search results page and check the box next to “Backyard” under “Outdoor Spaces.”
You can also filter your search results based on other features:
- Hourly price
- Number of attendees
- Interior spaces
- Space type
- Whether the host takes enhanced health and safety precautions
- Availability of instant booking
- Keywords included in the description
