The only thing that I will add is that its sometimes better to be more flexible about the days. If most of your bookings will come from around the Manchester area and you aren't advertising anywhere else then not such a problem. Having looked at the flight schedule into Bourgas this year, there are far fewer flights from the north than previously.
We have clients that are prepared to take people with very little notice because there is no shortage of apartments to rent. They are also prepared to let out for 2 or 3 days at a time if they are not let. This is really useful for people that are looking around the area or like my family, who like to spend a few days in SB.
I agree Starby, you have to be flexible, I am flexible with mine to a certain point on the price, but when people what it for nothing after you offering them a decent deal, you can't give it away. I've had that before myself. I don't mind what day people arrive, as flights from all areas arrive on varied days so best to keep your market open. There is a lot of apartments around so being flexible I think is important. If I had no bookings coming in within a certain time scale, I would have no problem with short stay or weekend stays.
