Default Holiday Home in Valencia

Hi Everyone, I'm new to this way of communicating with people so please bear with me!
I am just about to purchase an apartment in Port Saplaya, Nr, Alboroya. This is going to be a holiday home for my family and close friends.
Does anyone know of a reputable management company (speaking english) who could offer a general maintenance, key holding and post visit cleaning service?
Thanks in advance.

Cant help but, if you are planning to rent out you will need a tourist licence (the management company should help with this)
If you are British you will also pay a higher rate of non resident tax to Spain.

If it's just for family and friends, why bother with a management company (someone you don't know)? If it's an apartment you will hardly have any maintenance inside and the rest would be covered through community fees.

Thank you. That is good advice, but I cannot be there to hand over keys so need a local company to be key holders.

You could use a smart door lock system with pin code or phone. Just a thought.

Yep, this. No need for physical keys these days!

My only issue with that is there is a communal door. I'll probably have to ask my new neighbours if I can install one outside the entrance somewhere

Alternatively you could install a key safe+

Yes, that is thing sort of thing that an AirBNB owner would use.

Depending on the number of people who live there etc I wouldn't rely on that- people are not super comfortable with changes to existing things and you would need to have it formally agreed in the annual meeting.

If it's family and close friends what's wrong with giving them the keys in UK?

And about the tourist licence?

Have you checked that subletting is even within community rules?

Money does not have to change hands for it to be deemed a let btw.

Yes technically I believe you need a licence but I don't think your community can prevent you letting. Everyone with second homes in my building has family stay at various times and I'm sure they don't have licences. I think the problem arises if it is a tax check by the hacienda.

The president of the community has a lot of power and can enforce any restriction which has been agreed by the community.

This is why I can't be bothered with apartments or community living. If these apartments are cheap and the budget doesn't allow more, so be it. But with a bigger budget 200k+ you can get a nice smaller villa near the coast without all these restrictions. I see it with friends and when you're unlucky it's just more admin and no longer a holiday. Of course renting is the easiest option.

I would agree, but horses for courses.
I suppose some people prefer to feel part of a community?
I cannot understand the obsession some have for "traditional" Sunday lunch in an English pub.
I would not like to be on a guided bus tour either, Coach Trip - All 4 (channel4.com)
