The host

After a major renovation of an existing boutique apartment block, Armond was seeking a professional short-term rental specialist to captialise on the property's location and booking potential.

With a specific demographic of day trip travellers, MadeComfy's onboarding and pricing team optimised the listing to take advantage of the property's special location near to Katoomba station, as well as it's proximity to walking tracks in the Blue Mountains National Park.

Since listing, the property and other apartments in the same block also managed by MadeComfy have performed strongly, with dynamic pricing balancing varying levels of demand between weekdays, weekends and demand spike periods such as school holidays.

In the three months to the end of August 2020, MadeComfy's short-term rental management service was able to deliver 31% higher net returns compared to market long-term rental rates.

The listing

This spacious and fully equipped 2-bedroom apartment in the heart of Katoomba has been stylishly renovated to a high standard.

The apartment is in easy walking distance to Katoomba station, and the perfect access point to the region's iconic nature walks within the Blue Mountains National Park.
