Roderick’s Tip

Decorating and Preparing a Short Stay or Holiday Let Property

I love these properties and are always a joy to work on, as there is a real chance to stamp some personality and draw inspiration from not only where the property is located, but from all the corners of the globe. 


Whether your inspiration is; The Hamptons, Bali or Thailand, Parisian Chateau, slick inner-city warehouse or New York style studio, Boho, Soho, Navaho, or a farmhouse in the land of the gentry. This is an opportunity to have your own unique holiday retreat that you can share with eager online accommodation shoppers, adding a valuable source of income.


Apart from the potential fun and creative aspect of these projects, I strongly recommend keeping in mind that although the majority of guests will respect your space, they will never treat it as well as you do. Therefore, I recommend furnishings and decorator pieces that are sturdy, durable and quality; but not at a price point that replacement is a fiscal concern or a heartbreak to lose. 


Don’t forget, you can always have a lockable cupboard or storage area to secure your personal treasures, collectables and holiday mementoes; bringing them out when you are staying at your special home away from home and locking them away when you leave until your next stay.


Is it a holiday home, an investment or business……..when executed correctly, shouldn’t it be all of them?

I think so
