Long-Term Rental

Renting out your annexe as a long-term rental is a popular choice for homeowners looking for a stable and consistent income stream.

By investing in an annexe that has a fully functional living space, complete with a kitchen, bathroom, and separate entrance, you can attract tenants who are searching for a comfortable and private living arrangement.

One of the key benefits of long-term rentals is the potential for ongoing rental income. By securing reliable tenants and establishing a rental agreement, you can enjoy regular rental payments that contribute to your financial goals.

The demand for rental properties is ever-present, ensuring that your annexe will remain a valuable asset.

In addition to the financial benefits, there are other advantages to renting out your annexe long-term. The presence of tenants can offer an added layer of security for your property and could also create a sense of companionship especially for people whose children may have flown the nest or for more elderly homeowners.

Short-Term Holiday Let

Another exciting option for renting out your annexe is as a short-term holiday let. With the rise of platforms like Airbnb, homeowners can capitalise on the tourism industry and cater to travellers looking for unique and comfortable accommodation options.

One notable example is a one-bed annexe in Wimbledon that we recently constructed. The owners of this annexe purpose built their annexe to be a charming and stylish retreat, tailored to the needs of holidaymakers looking specifically for an Airbnb. Situated in the heart of Wimbledon, this annexe offers a convenient location and easy access to popular tourist attractions in London.

This bespoke Hawksbeck annexe showcases the incredible potential of short-term holiday lets. By furnishing the space with amenities and creating a cosy atmosphere, homeowners can attract visitors from all around the world.

The flexible nature of short-term rentals allows homeowners to block out dates when they want to use the annexe themselves, offering balance between personal enjoyment and financial gain.

Not only can short-term holiday lets provide significant income, but they also offer an opportunity for homeowners to meet people from different backgrounds and share their local knowledge.

It can be a rewarding experience to host travellers and provide them with a unique and memorable stay.
