How To Set Up A Holiday Let

How often have you wondered how you might go about setting up a holiday rental? Some people seem to be making all this money from their holiday rentals?... Not sure? Here are a couple of tips on how to go about setting up your own holiday let.

What are the basics in setting up a holiday let?

First of all you will need a property. Whether it be a 1 room studio or a 20 bedroom mansion and whether you own it, your cousin owns it or you have the choice to lease it.

Since we are dealing in the holiday and tourism markets, where the property is located is a major consideration. For instance I doubt someone will fly in from London to go and spend their holidays at Cabramatta?

Whether it is a beach house or a mountain home both have equal appeal. Obviously the beach house in Bondi Beach or any other waterfront or beach location for the summer and the mountain home in the Blue Mountains or any other mountaintop for the winter.

How to furnish a holiday let?

A holiday rental is to be furnished exactly as you would want it ready to live in. The attraction of self-contained holiday accommodation must have he appeal of a 'home away from home'.

The furniture, whether it is expensive Georgian antiques or just basic Ikea furniture, it really is not that important. What is important is that the furniture is clean and functional.

All kitchen utensils, pots, pans and all cutlery are fully provided. As many of the guests arrive from interstate or overseas all linen, including blankets, sheets, pillow slips, towels and face washers should be made available.

If not wanting to bother with the linen, many agents can offer linen hire. To be able to give the choice of linen is attractive for some of the more local guests who wish to save on the rate by bringing their own linen.

What about council regulations and permission from government authorities?

Depending on the location, a newly established holiday let may need a Development Application submitted to council.

However, the many thousands of holiday lets available in Australia, Bali and other parts of the world are operating without permission (and in many cases permission is not required).

How to go about marketing the new holiday rental?

Many real estate agents will usually have a Property Management Division which will handle holiday rentals. However with a little bit of research a property owner may be quite happy to manage their own holiday let.
