Spanish Property Rentals

If you do not intend to stay in your Spanish property long term, an excellent way to cover the annual costs associated with ownership is to consider property rentals for either long term, or shorter holiday periods. You can make a substantial income from Spanish property rentals on your investment, but should, however, be aware that there also an amount of hard work involved!

On first entering into the Spanish property rentals business, you are obviously going to worry about getting a good return on your investment, and a bit anxious at the prospect of having strangers in your home and making use of your possessions. It can therefore be tempting to furnish and equip your property 'on the cheap' in the hopes of avoiding costly repairs and replacements.

However, based on experience, this is not a good idea. People generally expect their holiday home to be comfortable and well equipped, a 'home from home', and are more likely to look after your property if they feel you have gone out of your way to make them feel welcome. It is often the simple things, like flowers on a table, that can achieve this.

Good quality furniture that can be easily cleaned, or washable covers will help protect your suite from suntan oil, or food and drink stains. 'Personal touch' items such as vases, pictures, books, and ornaments, should be on shelving set high enough to avoid accidents and small children. Some items, such as videos, microwaves, and satellite TV are regarded as essential, so this should be bourn in mind when furnishing the property. The rates you charge for your Spanish property rental should echo the standard of your furnishings and equipment.

Kitchens should always be fully equipped, with ample cutlery, glass, china and cooking utensils. Coffee pots, tea pots, juicer, microwave, iron & board, and a washing machine should also be provided. A tumble dryer and dishwasher may also be deemed as essential by some.

A poor quality mattress is enough to ruin anyone's holiday! It is essential that both beds and sofabeds be of good quality and comfortable. Bedrooms should have sufficient storage space, both drawers and wardrobes, with hangers provided.

There should be no shortage of bed linen and towels - preferably 3 sets - so there is always a set for emergencies and changeovers. Spare tea towels and tablecloths should also be provided.

A complete inventory should be made of everything left in the rental property. This inventory should be checked at the end of each rental and if necessary any deductions for items missing or broken can be made from the damage deposit. You can even take photographs so in the event of a problem you have an unquestionable record of how your property looked beforehand.

House rules should be typed out and left in a prominent spot in the property such as on a hallway table, a kitchen worktop, or even pinned up on the wall. It is also a good idea to leave a 'Guest Manual'. where visitors can leave their comments or complaints. It can be useful in helping you to know their suggestions for improvements.

Local information, maps, places of interest,restaurants and a local contact information should either be sent to the guest beforehand, or left in the property as well as emergency contact numbers for doctors, dentists, hospitals and police. Practical information on how everything works in the property, rubbish disposal, gas bottles etc. should also be provided for your visitors.

Providing a "welcome pack" of groceries can be much appreciated by visitors, particularly those arriving late at night.
