Why short-term lets?
There are many attractive benefits to renting out your Bristol home on a short-term basis, from earning more money to peace of mind while on holiday. We have listed a few of these below.
House for sale?
Is your property currently on the market for sale and sitting empty? No one wants to be paying a mortgage on unoccupied property, so why not let us bridge the gap by renting out the property before it sells.
Buy to let landlord?
On average, Buy-to-Let landlords take home 20% more than they would on a long-term rental, making this an attractive option that has become increasingly popular over recent years.
Off on holiday?
Why not let guests enjoy your place and contribute to your trip? We will make sure your property is spotless when you return. Even more, you get the peace of mind knowing your property is looked after while you are away.
Do you have a place in Bristol but spend most of your time away? Why not make some money from your empty property? We find a majority of our homeowners work away from Bristol Monday to Friday and love coming home to a clean apartment and a few extra quid to enjoy at the weekend. Just let us know your schedule, and we can mark the accommodation as unavailable when you are home.
What do I need in my property?
Your property will need to be fully furnished and have everything needed for a short term stay, but don't worry, we have a list we can send you.
How involved do I need to be in the whole process?
We look after everything, from setting up your property profile with professional photography right through to ensuring guests enjoy their stay and everything that happens in between. You don’t need to do anything once you hand over the property to us.
I already have an Airbnb profile, can you take that over?
Yes, as long as you are happy with the profile and the reviews we can co-host the listing and manage it that way.
Can I use the property or are there restrictions in place?
We have no restrictions on how much you use the property, all that we ask is that you honour the bookings and let us know if and when you would like to use the property.
What if there are maintenance issues or if work needs doing on my property?
We have a great maintenance team including accredited plumbers and electricians. With your permission, we can organise any work that needs doing and deduct it from your settlement statement.
Do you vet the guests that are staying?
There are a few ways that we can allow guests to book in order to vet them. This is property specific and something that we can discuss with you at the time. Ultimately, yes, we can choose which guests we want to stay and which we don’t, based on your criteria.
