VRS142 – Building a Vacation Home on the Experience of 5 Years Vacation Rental Living with Lynne Martin

When I last interviewed Lynne Martin, she had just published her book, Home Sweet Anywhere, was excited about having an article featured in the Wall Street Journal, and had stayed in half a dozen vacation rental homes on their worldwide adventure.

Just over 2 years on, I wanted to catch up with Lynne and find out what’s been happening in the nomadic life she and her husband Tim have been leading.

And I found that not only has her best-selling book been published in 8 languages and now available on Audible, Lynne is now a bona fide journalist with a press pass, she is a regular contributor to Huffington Post and Travel Advisor to Travel Smith and will shortly be seen on a TV ad with a major brand.

And that’s not all. She and Tim have just welcomed their first guests to their custom built vacation home in California – a property created to their criteria, developed from five years of living in vacation rentals.

In this interview Lynne shares:

  • The most memorable experiences of a five-year trek around the world
  • Why a simple couch made such an impact
  • The practical tips she is now applying to her own vacation rental
  • 10 simple learning points brought back from a sea of experiences
  • The benefits of using staging and photography professionals
  • How she plans to manage the property when they get back on their travels
  • What’s next on the Martin's adventure list
