Hi all We have recently purchased a property on the Sunshine Coast that we intend retiring to in the next 5 years. It is upmarket and close to the beach and it was snapped up as a permanent rental for $800 pw. This nets us close to zero holding costs after tax, though we are on P&I so cash flow negative. It is our only IP and we own our PPOR outright so we are comfortable with our financial risk position. We purchased the property because we want to live there - not for capital gains speculation or yield. When the current 1 year lease runs out we are considering putting the property on AirBnb or similar. The area we purchased is popular for holidays / short stays and looking at similar properties we should be able to get around $4.5k / week / peak and about $2.5k/week/offpeak. We, perhaps naive, thought is that if we price it right we could a achieve approx 35% occupancy and get similar returns to permanent rental with the added benefit of having access to the property now for 65% of the time. The property would be available 100% of the time for rental so should remain decuctible so I understand this means our access will be mostly offpeak times and su ject to bookings. Does anyone else have similar experience managing an Airbnb for optimised lifestyle rather than financial optimisation? Any thoughts on pricing, minimum durations to get us to a breakeven position?
