Demand for accommodation offered by the highly fragmented Holiday Houses, Flats and Hostels industry has been mixed over the past five years. The industry consists of three main service segments: backpacker accommodation, bed and breakfast accommodation, and short-term house and apartment rentals. While backpacker and bed and breakfast accommodation have both been affected by weak domestic and international tourism demand, demand for rented houses and apartments has been strong.
Enterprises in this industry operate rented houses and apartments, bed and breakfast accommodation and backpacker hostels and other accommodation for short-term rental. The industry excludes hotels, resorts, serviced apartments, motels, caravan parks and camping grounds.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
