Holiday homes in Kiama, Gerringong and Gerroa are very popular for weekend breaks or for longer holiday stays. For property owners, holiday home rentals are a great way to turn the cost of owning your holiday home into a long-term profit.
Income generated from renting your home for getaways can help pay mortgage costs, ongoing maintenance costs and upgrades to the interior and exterior of the property, adding real value to your property.
At Coast and Country Holidays, we have been managing holiday homes for more than 30 years, so we can advise you on if your home will be best as a short-stay rental or a long term lease.
Short-stay holiday homes are trendy because websites like Airbnb, HomeAway and Expedia make booking a holiday home as quick and convenient as booking a motel.
The growth is remarkable. Airbnb grew its revenues by 60% in 2018 and according to the Australian those revenues were just under a billion dollars. Airbnb growth over the previous five years was 4000% with 6.6 million visitors using its holiday booking sites.
How is this growth in holiday home accommodation possible? It seems holiday makers enjoy staying in real homes, and they see a massive cost saving compared to staying in expensive hotels – particularly if there are several people travelling.
Coast and Country Holidays is a member of the oldest and most respected real estate group in the area. The award-winning First National Coast and Country have been managing holiday rentals for over thirty years.
Our friendly, expert staff at Coast and Country Holidays will advise on the best way to prepare your home for short-stay guests and then take holiday home bookings for you on our website, or through many of the popular holiday booking sites like Airbnb, Expedia or HomeAway among many others.
