Airbnb Management in Bali -All You Need To Know
Listing and managing your property have become much easier with the help of Airbnb management in Bali. People tend to list their Bali property on Airbnb to make a good investment for the long term. Hip areas such as Seminyak, Kuta, Oberoi, Canggu, and Legian are home to many Airbnb. If you have a property in Bali and want to rent it as an Airbnb, then you should definitely read this article. Here is a guide to Airbnb management in Bali.
Why start your Airbnb business in Bali?
Bali’s real estate business is one of the most stable businesses around. According to Bank Indonesia (Indonesia’s national bank) property always shows a positive growth between 1-4% between 2014-2019, shown by the property price index of 16 major cities. It has also left the 2008 economic crisis relatively unscathed.
So now, let’s look at what do you need to do or know before starting your airbnb in Bali
What do I need to know before starting my business in Bali?
1. Types of accommodation license
With airbnb being a short term rental, you can have various types of properties being listed. This ranges from 3 star hotels to a simple homestay experience. Keep in mind that these places have different licenses of their own for you to deal with.
- Operational license for small accommodations
This is the license you need to start a homestay or bed and breakfast business.
- Operational license for medium accommodations (Melati)
This is usually for Villas or guest houses with around 3-5 rooms
- Principal license for hotels, ranging from 3 to 5 stars
This is usually for hotels and inns that have more than 5 rooms.
Here is one tip, though. Trying these out by yourself will certainly confuse you. Indonesia is notorious for its complicated bureaucratic procedures when it comes to having properties in their soil. But don’t fret! There are many local trusted firms that can help you manage your airbnb property. More on them below.
2. Knowing local Laws
Bureaucratic and legal hurdles will probably be the biggest barrier when it comes to starting any kind of property business in Bali, including airbnb. Some places such as Canggu look favorably upon long term rentals and so prohibits any kind of short term rental businesses. Other places like Seminyak and Legian are open to the idea of hotels or homestays that give 2-3 nights worth of accommodations. There are also other places in Bali that require you to be present while the business is still up and running.
3. Be careful of ‘agents’
Agents doing underhanded and borderline fraudulent services to make a quick buck do exist in Bali. The problem comes in the form of them simplifying the process that will grant you only temporary licenses. This makes you an easy target by the authorities to crack down on.
