Adapting a much loved Salcombe home into an income-producing holiday let

One of Refurb's specialities is adapting properties into income-producing holiday homes. Blue Haze was a much-loved family home in Salcombe that needed to start producing an income from holiday letting.

Not only did Blue Haze need to start producing an income, but it also needed a makeover to refresh it and prepare for the letting market.

Our brief was to transform Blue Haze into a holiday home that could sleep ten.

We managed the refurb right down to the inventory, details like ensuring there were enough teaspoons for ten people! It was a fantastic project that the whole team worked on at some point.

Zoning the space was vital in creating space to ensure enough living space, and the team came up with some clever and innovative ways to create dining space and seating space for ten. We also created a relaxed, snug area used as a kids den and TV room.

We started work at the start of lockdown three and finished in May 2021, ready for the booming summer letting season of 2021. Our clients were thrilled with the result.

The final part of the project was painting Blue Haze's exterior with a paint colour that bought Blue Haze in line with its name; if you knew the property before, it used to be yellow!

Blue Haze is a five-minute walk into the town centre in Salcombe and is available to let through holiday host. Here's the link to see more
