My wife and I are considering buying a holiday home but have been also talking about potentially looking for something that would let well on Airbnb.
I was just wondering if any of you have done similar and if you have any tips for finding the right property.

We are going to book our holidays through Airbnb this year to see what others do, but will be buying new furniture, etc if it's something we go ahead with.
Thanks for commenting. That's handy to know.
We had always talked about buying a caravan and having it sited so we can go on holiday pretty much whenever we want but now we're going to have sale proceeds from a house, it makes more sense to buy a house that will at least retain some value, than a caravan that will be worthless in a few years time, so the thinking was that if we can make a bit of money as well when it's empty, it's win win.
Still very much in the 'thinking about it' stage at the moment though.
