ScoobyZ, can I suggest you just drop in to Sunray's office and have a chat with them.
Most people who rent their villas out use multiple sites on the internet as well as local agents. Let's face it as long as the commission plus costs leave you with a gain why not seek to defray some of your costs. I actually prefer to have my villa occupied.

It's not that easy to pop in at the moment as I'm in Portsmouth England. I will pop in when I go to pick the keys up when I'm over there next.

Hi ScoobyZ.Live quite close to you (Stubbington) Wife a Pompey girl.Although I am not up to date with all the new rules and regulations,we sold our place a few years ago after 10 happy years of holidaying in Turkey.We bought at and sold at prices we were happy with,however it seemed at the time renting was a minefield in those days UNLESS you were very aware and on the case.We used it as our second home decorating as such and so we didnt want anybody spoiling it.
we heard of stories of people allowing emlaks/agents have the keys to rent out,Unfortunately agents did not always report to owners property had been rented out to Turkish friend relatives etc or rented and kept monies saying they were unable to get lets,I know of somebody that bought two apts in same block one for himself and one to rent to "pay" for his investment,After year one he was trying to sell the rental as damage and costs were so great that he was loosing money,
So if you rent are you just going to have the basics so you will not stand to lose much in terms of fixtures and fittings (basic furniture) and then when you go to have YOUR holiday will you be happy holidaying in YOUR property with just that basic stuff.
That is why we choose not to rent when we spent our time away we wanted to holiday in a little comfort.
We also found owning our own we had to take time out to maintain property God knows how much time and effort we would have had to put in correcting others damage.
As I said I didnt rent out others more experienced in renting will give you better advice rather than my hearsay and doom mongering so good luck with what ever you decide

Cheers Trevoro. Some good advice. I think with all the fees I will keep it as a holiday home and not rent. I’m hoping to holiday for 5 years then spend longer out there if I can save enough for an early retirement. Would be a shame to have memories of poor tenants. I have a U.K. property I rent and have seen how people trash places.
