Which Option Should I choose?

We would only consider the Airbnb Made Simple option for Summer Only or if the property is unlikely to be available for the full 12 months. 

How does this play out in practice?

Our aim is to be 100% transparent and competitive when it comes to our prices. Please see examples below.

Example 1 – a 3 night stay at £125 per night with the normal occupancy level (no sofa beds, no pets, no cots or high chairs etc.).

Your property receives a booking through Airbnb or Booking.com.

The guest will pay £425 (£375 sub-total + £50 cleaning fee). There are no extra supplements.

The OTA will take their commission (generally between 3-15%). In this example, I will use 10% of the sub-total, £37.50. This fee is retained by the OTA, and the balance transferred to the host.

Short Stay St Andrews as the host will receive £337.50 + £50 = £387.50

The commissionable amount is £337.50. Short Stay St Andrews retains the £50 cleaning fee. There are no extra fees for dogs etc..

The commission of 15% is £50.62. You will be transferred £286.88.

Payment will be transferred to your account usually within 14 days of the end of the previous month.

Example 2 – a 5 night stay at £100 per night with 6 guests and a dog (2 guests use sofa bed at £15 ppn and £20 extra cleaning fee for the dog).

The guest will pay £722 (£500 sub-total, £150 extra guest fees, £20 dog supplement + £50 cleaning fee).

The OTA will take their commission (generally between 3-15%). In this example, I will use 15% of the sub-total, £75. This fee is retained by the OTA, and the balance transferred to the host.

Short Stay St Andrews as the host will receive £652 + £70 = £722

The commissionable amount is £652. Short Stay St Andrews retains the £50 cleaning fee and the £20 dog cleaning supplement.

What our clients say

Jordan has created a very valuable investment for me. He sourced me a quality property in the centre of Edinburgh using his vast experience in the holiday let sector would be a "winner". He controlled the process from viewing, purchase, refurbishment to the final set up for holiday let occupation. I would recommend Jordan for his eye for location, interior design and what will make an investment work. I was happy to take a "hands-off" approach throughout.

James

Investor Owner

Jordan's business has ensured my property is making a steady income through the year with a no-hassle approach to managing my flat as a holiday let. I had serious issues with a non-paying long-term tenant whom refused to pay the rent and/or leave. After a lengthy process, I approached Jordan and his team to make my flat work for me again. It was ready for Airbnb in 2 weeks after redecoration! I finally received income for the property after 6 months of nothing.

Ken

Owner

We moved to Aberdeen and had our flat advertised on the rental market for a few months without success. We approached Jordan with a view to doing a commission-only deal to manage the flat on a holiday let basis. His initiative and advice has allowed us to turn a potentially loss-making investment into a super success, totally hassle free. Being a furnished holiday let, we are able to avoid the new BTL mortgage rules coming into play and protect our investment.
