    Why short-term lets?

    There are a number of 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’ve listed a few of these below.

    House
    House for sale?

    Is your property currently on the market for sale and sat empty? No one wants to be paying a mortgage on an unoccupied property so why not let us bridge the gap by renting out the property before it sells.

    Large House
    Buy to let landlord?

    Buy to let landlords on average take home 20% more than they would on a long term rental. This is a very attractive option that has become increasingly popular over recent years.

    Aeroplane
    Off on holiday?

    Why not let guests enjoy your place and contribute towards your trip? We'll make sure your place is spotless when you return. What’s more, you get the peace of mind knowing your property is occupied whilst you’re away.

    Flexible
    Flexibility

    Do you have a place in Bristol but spend a lot of time away? Why not make some money from your empty place whilst you are away. Just let us know your schedule and we can simply mark the property as unavailable when you are back. Many 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.

    Homeowner FAQs

    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.

      An absolute pleasure to deal with this company. Had assistance throughout our whole stay, their team was available to answer all of our questions. The whole stay was seamless and the property was exceptional. Would recommend to anyone looking for both long and short term accommodation. Thanks Hopewell!

      Hopewell have been managing and letting my property for the last 4 years in Bristol. Both myself and my tenants have always been delighted with the responsiveness and service provided by the staff at Hopewell. One of the best in Bristol and highly recommended.

      As tenants we’ve always found Hopewell to be very responsive whenever we have needed their assistance over the past 18
      months. They reply quickly to emails and are helpful and pleasant to interact with. We’ve just moved and wish our new property was also managed by them!

      If you love Rock, need space for a max of two people to stay (you can have a couple of people for a meal too), want to hide away in warmth, great style and comfort....with That View...then this is for you. Spotlessly clean and high quality fittings and equipment. Superb.

      Hopewell is unique among estate agents in offering short term (nightly, serviced apartment style), medium term (month by month) and long term lets. My partner and I needed housing for 3.5 months and the medium term let was perfect for our needs!

      Great service, always prompt and solution finders rather than problem creators. Very easy company to deal with. I’ve a number of properties they manage for us and just let them get on with it. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the service.
