New to renting a holiday property? Use our Connect Rentals guidelines and useful tips to help you book the perfect holiday.

What are the benefits of booking a rental property? Your perfect holiday is only a click away!

Being in control:

Control to not only choose your location but the actual property you will be staying at. Each property advertised provides a detailed description of all its amenities and up to 12 photos of the property. With such a wide range of properties available, you set your own wish list. Whether you want your own private pool or to enjoy a family evening around the BBQ – the choice is yours. From luxuries such as a private pool to everyday comforts such as satellite TV or internet access – we'll have the perfect property to match your needs. Tailor your itinerary to suit you and your family or friends. We are  more than happy to take mid week arrivals so you can make use of cheaper flights if you are venturing abroad.

Good value for money:

Booking a holiday villa direct or serviced apartment can offer an effective solution for your holiday and you can save up to 50% in comparison to staying at a hotel. The rates are priced per week, so the price per person is often very low in comparison to a package holiday.  

Home from Home:

Remember you are staying in a family home with all the mod cons. Choose a property to suite your requirements yet within your budget - no more sharing with the children! What's more relaxing than getting up in the morning to the sun shining, dressing gown on with breakfast on your terrace or balcony!  Eat what you like when you like! Many of our properties provide entertainment for adults and children including games, books, DVDs, PC, Wii, PS2, Xbox, etc

Great for large parties / weddings:

Looking for a family reunion or two families holidaying together? Renting a couple of holiday homes can offer plenty of space and privacy for the whole party to get together whatever the occasion. The larger the party, often the lower the cost per head – so providing more value for money.
