Holiday Rentals on the Costa del Sol Spain

Happy Holidays!

On behalf of all of our team, we wish you a very Happy Holidays, and health and happiness in 2018! We hope you have a wonderful time, wherever you are spending the holidays, and that you can be with friends, family and loved ones.

At this special time of year we always like to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves, so we’re helping the homeless on the Costa del Sol. We collaborate with a local homeless charity and contribute savoury and sweet pies to their Christmas meal and presents so that everyone can get a little something this year. All our generous staff are making donations to this cause, and the company is doubling what they raise so we can help as many people as possible.

At the office, we are collecting warm coats, blankets, scarves and rucksacks, to give to the homeless. So if you have anything in the house which you don’t use anymore, please drop them in to the office and we’ll make sure they get to people in need. Where to find us

Christmas Opening Times

It has been a very busy year for our property management and property rentals team and we continue our hard work throughout the festive season. We will be closed on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th of December and the 1st of January, but open as normal throughout the rest of the holidays.

Please let us know if we can help you with property management or renting out your property in 2018, or browse our great holiday rental properties and start planning your next holiday. We look forward to hearing from you!

Happy Holidays!

From all the team at HomeCareontheWeb, HolidayRentalontheWeb and HomeRentalontheWeb, we would like to wish you a very Happy Holidays and a wonderful 2017.

As this is the time for giving, we’re delighted to be supporting a local homeless project by buying socks and boxer shorts to give them and baking some delicious treats for their Christmas lunch. We are also helping the A.C.E Animal charity, buying food for the animals to make sure they have a very Merry Christmas too.

This has been a great year for our company and we hope we can help you next year if you want to rent out your property and have it managed, or find a brilliant holiday home or long term rental on the Costa del Sol.

We will be open throughout the festive period Monday to Friday except the Bank Holidays on the 26th of December, and the 2nd and the 6th of January.

¡Felices Fiestas – Happy Holidays!

Concerns over safety of online holiday rental bookings

A while ago, we were really sad to read reports of payments being made to Owners Direct for accommodation that didn’t exist or wasn’t available, but pleased to see a lawyer offering sensible advice for protecting yourself. It’s important to know that these scams are in the minority, but by following some sensible advice you can limit your risk.

BL Claims Solicitors, commented that holidaymakers were often unaware that they have very little legal protection if a listing on a holiday home website turns out to be inaccurate or fraudulent. “It’s a case of buyer beware,” they said. “Legitimate holiday rental websites are not generally liable for any financial losses incurred by people who fall victim to a scam – even if a criminal has used the site fraudulently – and they are under no obligation to carry out checks to verify whether what is being offered is available. Some sites have reacted by offering insurance against bogus advertisers and this is well worth considering.

Be very suspicious if you are asked for the price of the rental upfront and are asked to send it to a foreign bank account or through a method such as Western Union or a telegraph transfer, as these payment methods are notorious for being used by criminal gangs. Listen to common sense – generally speaking, if something seems too good to be true then it probably is.”

We at HolidayRentalOnTheWeb and our sister company HomeCareontheWeb are proud to offer hundreds of holiday rental properties on the Costa del Sol from small budget apartments to grand villas with private pools. Unlike these large holiday rental sites that advertise thousands of properties, we know each property well as we manage and maintain them.
