We have run this as a successful 5 star short vacation term rental for 4 yrs, and, we are just ready to have more time to relax and ‘play’. Future bookings and any associated deposits will convey if the buyer continues to operate it as this business and the guests approve of the changes. We see good potential for increased bookings and revenue by increasing its availability (we blocked nights when we traveled or for personal use) and by marketing. There is potential for purchasing a 2/2 and a 1/1 on the same street, owner financing also available, for additional short term rentals or owners' residence if desired. We look forward to showing our property to serious buyers.
