I know the bulk of investors on the forum are hard-nosed business-minded folk who turn their nose up at the idea of holiday rentals as investments (I spent years thinking the same and still tell many people to think twice before doing it) but I wondered how many are out there quietly doing it successfully? I have come across more of the genuine beach home investments in recent years and even seen a few homes pulling close to $100k per annum gross returns. I am bracing for the barrage of "its terrible don't do it" but wondered what people think is needed to actually make short term letting more viable? I recently did a blog post on it after getting a few similar enquiries which is HERE but happy to hold open discussions and see what comes out of it. Note: I am not talking about buying a holiday home, using it during all the peak periods and being surprised that it loses money, I am talking about actually running it like a business.
