And, really, he isn’t all that far away from the beach, shops and other attractions.
The problem is occupancy. He has some regulars who come every holiday period (and have been doing so for the four years he has owned the property). Overall, occupancy is about 50% year round and he knows from the local tourist office that the other properties average around 68% occupancy year round. New developments could mean trouble. This lack of occupancy can be quite frustrating for Mr. Smith. Cars pull in, drive around the parking areas, then drive away.

He is a member of the local tourist committee, but too busy to go to meetings. However, he does receive the local statistics and knows the average stay in the area is 3.8 nights, and that local families and couples and increasingly overseas visitors are his potential customers.
