Hi, My name is Elaine Watt,

how to holiday let - the holiday let success podcast

I’m your host on The Holiday Let Success Podcast, I’m a mum to four, wife to a lovely husband and I’m addicted to non-fiction. I also live on the edge of The Cotswolds, area of outstanding natural beauty, in the UK.

I grew up with a family that ‘did’ property. I mean we moved house A LOT, not always a long way from home, but sometimes. And every single house started as a house and was nipped and tucked into submission until it’s best bits were found and outed and it became a home. The property development bug is hard to shake off and I’ve done a fair few places of my own. Some bought and sold. Some bought and long term let. And now , my absolute favourite – Holiday Letting.

I’m delving deep into the world of Holiday Lets | Vacation Rentals and sharing the best and worst of my experiences as I created a business that I love, is profitable and produces lots of very happy guests who want to leave great reviews and spread the word or in other words – how to holiday let!

But less about me…..

First, let’s look at why Holiday Let Success is useful for you.

I’m searching out the best in the business; Industry Experts; Successful Holiday Home owners; People who are rocking the AirBnB phenomena, Users of the big sites such as VRBO, HomeAway and more and of course I’ll chat to guests themselves to find out what worked for them……and what didn’t.
