The Arrival of the New Digital Nomad Visa: Confirming Marbella as a Luxury Residential Destination

Marbella, located on the beautiful Costa del Sol in Spain, has long been synonymous with luxury and exclusivity. With its stunning beaches, world-class golf courses, vibrant nightlife, and an abundance of upscale amenities, it has attracted the attention of discerning individuals seeking a high-end residential experience. Now, with the introduction of the new digital nomad visa, Marbella is further solidifying its position as a top choice for those seeking an exceptional lifestyle. In this blog post, we will explore how this exciting development is reshaping Marbella’s real estate landscape and highlight how El Rey Villas can assist homeowners in covering maintenance costs through short-term holiday rentals.

Marbella: A Luxury Residential Haven

Marbella’s allure as a luxury residential destination has been undeniable for decades. Its Mediterranean climate, breathtaking landscapes, and sophisticated infrastructure have made it a favorite among the global elite. With the arrival of the new digital nomad visa, Marbella is now attracting a growing community of remote workers and entrepreneurs who seek not only a high quality of life but also a business-friendly environment. The visa allows individuals to live and work in Spain for an extended period, combining work and leisure seamlessly.

The Rise of Digital Nomads

The rise of the digital nomad lifestyle has revolutionized the way people work and live. By leveraging the power of technology, professionals can now work remotely from anywhere in the world. Marbella, with its luxurious amenities, excellent infrastructure, and thriving business community, is perfectly positioned to cater to the needs of this new breed of professionals. The city offers an exceptional quality of life, from high-end restaurants and shopping centers to recreational activities and wellness facilities, ensuring that digital nomads can enjoy a well-rounded lifestyle while pursuing their careers.

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.
