Affordable Apartments In Spain

By: Johnathan Bakers

Many of the over 200,000 apartment in Benidorm are made available each year as vacation rentals. They are in great demand during the summer months, so if you plan on visiting Spain during this period, make sure you book your apartment early. Six months advance reservation is probably the minimum; if you want find a perfect fit for you and your family, you may have to start even earlier. You can shop on the Internet for an apartment, or you can consult with a travel agent.

Many families who vacation in the Alicante region prefer an apartment to a hotel. With young children, it is much easier. There is no need to go out for every meal and children usually prefer cereal anyway, so why go to a restaurant? Have a quick bite at your apartment and you can start your day early. The same thing happens at the end of the day. A light supper for the children after a busy day at the beach or sightseeing is ideal.

The space an apartment affords is an advantage. You don't have to all plop on the bed to watch T.V. There is a real sofa and real chairs to sit on. And renting an apartment can usually be less expensive than the constrained space of a hotel room. When you are spending a long vacation, there is no comparison; it is almost mandatory to have an apartment rather than a hotel room. Just compare prices and find out.
To find an apartment, the first thing to do is contact a travel agent. They will usually have information on rentals in the area, or they will have contacts in the real estate industry to whom they can refer you.
If you are good at researching on the Internet, this is an excellent way to find your vacation apartment. One of the benefits of an Internet search is that you can see pictures of the apartment on the site you view. You can look for these apartments on real estate sites, travel sites, or the owners' individual sites. Since the owners are avoiding the cost of an agent, you can usually get good bargains this way.
When you are considering which apartment to rent, it is important to think about your individual needs. If you want to swim first thing in the morning, you will want a pool. If you like to cook gourmet meals, you will need a substantial kitchen, but if you only plan on breakfast and snacks, a counter with a fridge, burner and microwave will do. You have to make sure there is room for everyone in your party, not only to sleep in, but to have some "personal space". A separate bedroom is nice instead of crowding the children in your bedroom.

If you plan on spending most of your time at the beach, why waste time traveling there? Get an apartment close to the beach and then you can easily do any of the water sports you may be interested in such as snorkeling, sailing, fishing or kayaking. If you don't do any of these things, but are interested in learning, you can hire and instructor at most of the beach resorts.
