Holiday property owners are in for a happy Christmas with bookings at near capacity across Caloundra for the festive season.
It’s not the beautiful beaches and relaxed lifestyle alone that keeps visitors returning to the region in their thousands each year, although that’s a huge factor. Henzells Agency does an enormous amount of work behind the scenes to ensure holiday rental properties perform at their best and achieve the highest occupancy levels for owners.
For example, the agency invests significantly in digital and SEO technology so that Henzells properties are front and centre when people are researching their next holiday on the internet.
We also partner with leading online holiday booking companies such as Airbnb, Stayz, Homeway and TripAdvisor, in addition to our own Accom Caloundra, to ensure the properties we manage reach the widest possible audience.
These initiatives come at no extra cost for property owners, falling under the existing management agreements. Coupled with positive action from owners themselves such as equipping their properties with unlimited Wi-Fi (our most common tenant request!) and even allowing pets where possible, occupancy rates are at all-time high.
This year we have noticed an upswing in international visitors particularly from New Zealand, the UK and the USA and an increase in length of stay – with six-week visits not uncommon.
With 140-plus rental properties to choose from, Henzells offers the full spectrum of holiday experiences in great locations from Currimundi to Golden Beach, with the prime beach areas of Kings, Moffat and Shelly always in hot demand.
The peak holiday and event periods often sell out well in advance. Each year holidaymakers are getting in earlier, picking their favourite locations well beforehand to avoid disappointment.
This Christmas period is no different with Caloundra essentially “sold out” from next Saturday until the end of January.
