    We left booking a summer holiday rather late, so most costal properties were booked up.

    Is this the real reason for the premium price?
    Few properties remain so the ones that are available ramp the price.  In the same way that hotels and airlines work?

    No it was the usual summer holiday price. Quite a few airbnb places had discounts to fill their summer holiday vacancies. We chose this one as it was walking distance (ish) to the beach.

    No, I am not perfect, but yes I do judge people on their use of basic English language. If you didn't know the above, then learn it! (If English is your second language, then you are forgiven!)

    Apparently the very high demand for holiday rentals seen over the last couple of years, has subsided somewhat this Summer/Autumn. So probably most are glad just to get booked up at normal prices.
