Olivia RoundAugust 15, 20190 min read

If you’re considering purchasing a rental property, or perhaps you have a spare bedroom or vacation planned and are looking into creative ways to make extra cash – then read on, as we have some great insider information about the world of Airbnb.

Did you know that Airbnb rentals in Brisbane bring in an average daily rate of $150? They also retain a substantial occupancy rate of 67%, meaning a steady flow of bookings year-round. Across Australia, Airbnb is also proving popular among business travellers, with an increase of 59% work travel bookings made by millennials in the past 12 months.

One of the greatest ways to secure regular bookings for your Airbnb is by choosing the right property. Three of the key considerations to take into account during your property search are:

  • Location
  • Amenity
  • Apartment size/configuration

In order to help you choose the best rental property, we reached out to Brisbane Airbnb management company Breezybnb to help us identify our top listings in Queensland, based on their industry knowledge.

Here are Breezybnb’s top 5 apartments for Airbnb in Brisbane.

"For Airbnb guests, the excitement of staying in the tallest building in the city adds an extra level of desirability for apartments in Brisbane Skytower. The higher floors are the obvious picks, and even better if you have a room with a view for Riverfire festival! Breezybnb manages some 2-bedroom apartments in the building with 90% occupancy at $153 a night. The 2-bedrooms are usually more popular as the addition of a sofa bed can fit 6 adults which helps the apartments command a higher nightly rate." – Silver Lim, Breezybnb Brisbane Acquisitions

"The Aston Residences have an individuality which makes them a jewel that is hidden below the South Brisbane skyline. The low rise development is an attractive pick for business travellers who might be on an extended stay and prefer to avoid the sometimes chaotic foyers and carparks of larger developments. Proximity to some stellar restaurants & cafes and resort-style amenities makes this a hot pick for the executive traveller." – Silver Lim, Breezybnb Brisbane Acquisitions

"Located a stone’s throw away from South Brisbane Station, Lucid is sure to be popular with guests looking for convenient accommodation. Brisbane Central is a mere two stops away. A 2-bedroom unit would be in demand by families and groups of friends looking for a medium-sized place to stay. Being in close proximity to the Performing Arts Centre and the Convention Centre means you can increase your nightly rate whenever there are events scheduled. A stunning sky deck on Level 30 with a private dining room, BBQ amenities and an infinity-edge pool allows guests a place to relax and adds the wow factor to your Airbnb photos that everyone is attracted to." – Silver Lim, Breezybnb Brisbane Acquisitions
