What is Serviced Accommodation? 

It is one of the most popular property strategies everyone’s talking about nowadays. But what exactly is it and how does it work? Simply put, serviced accommodation is a property that offers hotel-like facilities on a short-term basis. You also probably heard it as short-term rental, holiday lets, and commonly advertised on Airbnb,, VRBO and Coolstays. 

In line with the services and amenities are fully equipped homes from your kitchen, living spaces, bedrooms, and dining and some have outdoor space. Guests are also expecting bathroom essentials just like a hotel with fresh towels, complimentary shampoo, soap, body wash and conditioner. To create the overall ‘home away from home experience.

Investors typically let serviced accommodation to tourists or working professionals looking for short stays on a night-by-night basis. Since it’s ideal for those who are planning a temporary stay in an area, or those who want to move around but still have the option to stay at their own place some could be contractors who work away Monday-Friday and need somewhere to stay during this period.
