Holiday Rental Properties in Marbella Score Higher Than Hotels
New figures released by Exceltur have shown that holiday rentals in Spain, and specially in Marbella, have taken over hotels for the first time ever. The research shows that last year there were more beds available in ‘tourist apartments’, such as in Airbnb accommodation, than in Spanish hotels. The number of bed space available through short-term home rentals nearly doubled from 2015, reaching 362,493 beds in Spain’s 22 biggest cities, 9.76% higher than what was available in hotels.
José Luis Zoreda, executive vice-president of Exceltur said:
“In just four years, vacation rental accommodation has exceeded the number of hotel beds created during entire decades of tourism-industry development.”
Rental Property Portals
Airbnb has been growing at a pace of nearly 100% in recent years, and now represents 54.2% of all available vacation rentals in Spain. Clearly, with so many holiday makers opting for the more flexible, cost effective and autonomous getaways a rental property can offer, there has never been a better time to invest in Marbella real estate.
