If you have a question about holiday rentals with El Rey Villas, you're in the right place.

We only charge a percentage of your daily booking rate, so you’ll have nothing to pay until we have secured your bookings!
With El Rey Villas, you can:

✔ Tell us the minimum and maximum holiday duration you will accept
✔ Review and approve your personal pricing strategy
✔ Request added extra’s like guest hampers & property management services
✔ And much more!

You will need to apply for a free tourist license to accept short term vacation rentals in Spain, which we can help you obtain. It is also worth mentioning that people renting a property to tourists in Spain should have an energy performance certificate (EPC). It is also the responsibility of the owner of the property to ensure they have the relevant insurance cover.
That depends on you! During your initial free consultation we will ask how much involvement you would like. Some clients like to pre-approve all marketing &/or pricing schedules, others prefer to take a back seat.
That’s a tough one to answer. It depends on a number of things like the size and location of your property, the season and how flexible your booking policy is. Attractive tourist areas in the holiday season can expect high occupancy rates. Taking into account the relatively high rents in typical tourist resorts, the rental income may turn out to be very attractive.

It is recommended that an insurance policy is taken out for peace of mind, although a number of the booking websites we partner with often provide some cover, for example, the Airbnb Host Guarantee provides property damage protection of up to $1,000,000.

For an additional EUR 500 / year you also have the option to require a 10% security deposit for your listing. El Rey Villas will collect damage deposit payments from guests on your behalf, and capture photographs after every changeover, to ensure you have evidence of what condition the property was in when the guest arrived and its condition when they left.

If this is a service you require we would be happy to discuss it further during your initial consultation.

Yes! We have a generous commission based scheme for partners helping us connect with property owners. You can read more about this on www.elreyvillas.com/partners
