      looking for some advice and wondered if anyone would care to offer any.

      I am helping a friend who has a property in the marbella/puerrto banus area, the property has previously been rented on a long term basis and the tenant has just left.

      Wondering about long term rentals -v- short term rentals, we have left the previous agent and are wondering about the best path to go from here.

      How easy is it to manage this yourself, is an agent the best option? as we dont live in spain so i have concerns about how we could manage the transfer of keys etc for new guests if short term rentals as i could come over every week or 2 to do this.

      another option i wondered about was mid term lets ie 2-3 months at a time is there much call for this?

      are there any best sites to advertise through if we set up our own website and system to do this?

      any help would be greatly appreciated, either by posting on here, private message or by email at

      i have listed some info below about the townhouse which may be helpful or not!

      Town house is about 5 minutes drive away from Puerto Banus,
      It has double garages and a big basement,
      then there is kitchen and toilet and storage, dining room and living room on this level, front terrace and back terrace. Swimming pool is at the back garden.
      Then up stairs there 3 good size bedrooms, master ensuite, family bathroom.
      There is good size of roof terrace, enjoying the uninterrupted views over golf course and sea.
      Living space is about 160 square metres.
      Previous tenants paid from 1,100 – 1,500 Euros per month

      thanks angela

      thanks for your guidance

      i did read through all of these posts but i was just looking for a discussion from people who are obviously successfully managing to rent their property’s who may have been kind enough to point out the ups and downs as there seems to be so many agents company’s doing this and clearly all profess that they are the best!
