Airbnb Holiday Rentals – The Benefits

Beachscape Holiday Rentals has seen a steady increase in the Airbnb properties in the last 7 years since Beachscape inception. Beachscape Holiday Rentals manage more than 55 holiday homes along the coastline of greater Port Macquarie – from Port Macquarie down to Dunbogan including Lake Cathie, Bonny Hills, North Haven and Laurieton (postcodes 2444, 2445 and 2443).

The benefits of Airbnb short term holiday rentals to the owners of the properties are obvious in regard to rental returns and occupancy levels, and the ability to use the home themselves during the year. Of course having the property looked after by Beachscape is another huge benefit as we are the only agency in the region to achieve an Airbnb Superhost status. *(1)

The Airbnb phenomena *(2) is also a great benefit to the local community. Ask any cafe owner, restaurant, retailer, club and tourist attraction operator and many other businesses (groceries, petrol, hairdressers etc) who are grateful for the increased numbers of tourists and visitors. In Australia alone it is estimated that Airbnb contributed $13.6 billion to Australia’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and supported almost 95,000 Aussie jobs in the 12 months to March 2023 *(3)

Airbnb activity accounted for nearly 8 percent of the Australian tourism industry’s contribution to GDP, up from 5 percent in 2019.

One in every 14 jobs generated by tourism in Australia is associated with Airbnb. The report shows dispersal of tourism away from urban areas:

“Airbnb has been at the heart of some of the trends reshaping the nation’s travel and tourism industry, including the shift in travel away from cities and towards more rural communities…
Domestic travelers have been crucial to the tourism sector’s resilience over the past three years as Aussie guests saw opportunities in domestic travel as a substitute for international holidays, with self-drive and regional trips increasing in popularity which led to a wider dispersion of tourism spend outside the traditional or ‘popular’ destinations in Australia.”
Kristian Kolding, Head of Consulting for Oxford Economics Australia

In NSW alone tourism benefits from over $3.7 billion dollars of revenue. And, as the mid-north coast of NSW is an increasingly favorite destination for short and longer stays, Airbnb properties are benefitting our local economy. Big time. Visitors who stay for more than a day and are here to enjoy themselves and spend their dollars in a region that offers so much.
