Autumn and winter short term rentals
With the autumn and winter months swiftly approaching, Marbella appeals to a different type of rental client. The summer months are ideal for family vacations, enjoying outdoor dining late into the hot nights and plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy during the days, but as the seasons change so do the types of clients that visit Marbella. As a cosmopolitan city attracting clients worldwide, Malaga airport also offers great deals during the off season, cheaper direct flights reaching the Costa del Sol within a couple of hours, an ideal mini-vacation before the run up to Christmas at home.
September is an ideal month to visit Marbella, when the golfing season is at its best, with over 50 golf courses to choose from along the coast, the wonderful climate allows for early starts and pleasant temperatures, reaching into the low 30ºs at midday, making for enjoyable golfing days out on a regular basis. Many golf courses host tournaments from September through to December.
From September to Christmas, Marbella and the Malaga region offer many events as well as Spanish Bank Holidays including a Piano Festival, the San Pedro de Alcántara Feria, 4 days hiking in the surrounding Marbella areas, Halloween, Cirque du Soleil in Malaga and the run up to Christmas with artisan markets, many traditional Spanish events and bank holidays in the month of December. Renting a property in the area is a great way to take advantage of the events and enjoy Marbella off season.
There is a wide variety of properties available during this period as many clients tend to book the same property year after year in the high season, the winter months offer a larger selection to choose from; from Marina apartments based in the heart of Puerto Banus with all amenities and facilities within walking distance and no need for a car, to luxury mansions set further afield offering total privacy and magnificent costal views within a secure community.

As an owner, this is a great time to take advantage of either staying in the property yourself or renting out on a midterm basis, as many clients from Northern Europe prefer the milder Marbella climate through these months, enabling an additional income on the property when otherwise unoccupied. Some owners also use this period to upgrade and modify the property itself preparing it for the next high season.
