The Beachscape Difference

Holiday renting is our core business. This is what we do, every day. We do things differently to make your holiday renting experience as easy as possible and profitable as possible for you. We apply a different approach in hosting holiday guests compared to the established real estate agents. We are happy to share the exact differences in a face to face meeting with you.

Is Holiday Renting easy?

To do it right, it takes a lot of work. It is a fast-paced, 24/7 business with high expectations and high stakes. Many property owners underestimate the effort, time and money involved in holiday renting and emotions at stake Also not every property is suitable as holiday rental, some properties will perform better with a traditional lease.

Is every property suitable for holiday renting?

No, not every property is suitable to be a holiday rental. Top performing holiday rentals have the following characteristics in common: ocean views, walk to beach, walk to shops/cafes, stylish, modern, outdoor entertaining area, pet-friendly. Beachscape can advise you what the best strategy for your property is to meet your goals.

Switching Agents?

We guarantee that there will be no switching costs and other hidden charges when you choose Beachscape as your holiday rental property manager going forward. Transparency is key at Beachscape.
The transition for future guests will also be seamless.
Would switching agents make sense?
  • Is your home reaching its full potential?
  • How many secured bookings do you have already for the peak Christmas and summer season?
  • How many positive reviews did you receive since your home was listed for holiday renting?
  • Do you know your guest profiles?
  • Do you know how you compare to other holiday houses?
  • Is your agent an Airbnb Superhost and Premier partner of and Stayz?
  • If you answered maybe, no or don't know to most of these questions, then please do get in touch.

The Tax Man

Holiday rental results are added to your income. All costs and investments associated with holiday renting are tax deductible pro-rata for the number of days your home was available for rent during the year. Costs deductions include management fees, marketing costs, cleaning costs, laundry costs, utility bills, internet bills, council rates, mortgage interest payments, repairs and home improvements. For example if your home was available for rent 200 days, you can deduct 200/365 (55%). Please consult a tax advisor for full details.
