Fire & Ice: the cost of family holidays

Last weekend, the Lady and I were sitting at home enjoying a quiet Saturday morning after the busy Christmas and New Year holidays.  It’s one of the favourite times for me, when there’s a bit of peace and quiet and no need to rush off somewhere.

We are not taking the piss with our prices and we are listed at around £30 a night at the moment.  I don’t intend to run a hotel, so I think that we can up prices a bit to reduce demand but keep the net profit high.  It seems like easy money. 🙂

It’s a funny feeling to have paying guests.  My wife and I have both hosted/surfed with couchsurfing but this is a different relationship and more of a commercial relationship.

So far so good.
