Just wanted to ask if anybody here leases out a holiday house and what their experiences were. I realize its not the greatest strategy and many advise against it but under particular circumstances I imagine it could work quite well. We plan to one day own a hobby farm within 2 hours of Sydney, circa 1.5m, which my partner will manage as a holiday/health retreat, with a small premises on the farm which we live. I am planning on buying it in the next 5 years and considering holiday leasing it to begin with and slowly building it up to a functioning business over time prior to moving there. Would be great to hear of anybody elses experiences in doing something like this or any advice/reading material, I am acquiring a few medium term capital growth investment properties in the mean time which I hope to one day use as leverage to purchase it, but the long term planning is definitely still in the beginning stages.
