Who is Pool Villas?
Pool Villas is a travel agency with more than 25 years of experience in the rental of villas and appartments. Pool Villas mediates between tenant and landlord. We have an office in the Netherlands and Spain where our team offers personal assistance to our guests in different languages with the aim of creating the perfect holiday for you.
What does Pool Villas offer and where?
Pool Villas rents out luxury appartments, villas and holiday homes with private pool. You can view our complete offer in the menu "Destinations".
How does Pool Villas get its holiday homes?
Some of our holiday villas are self-contained, others we offer in close cooperation with reliable local partners. Pool Villas selects its partners carefully and selects its holiday homes with care.
Why rent a villa or appartment?
A holiday home or villa offers you the possibility to go on holiday with your family, a group of friends, several families or couples together. Of course it is also possible to go on holiday with the family or as a couple.
Your holiday home offers you your own private swimming pool and all facilities. So you can cook or barbecue during your holiday or use the cooking service and many other services and let yourself be pampered.
Freedom and not having to look at the clock is part of your holiday, you don't have fixed times for breakfast or dinner. Renting a holiday home is often cheaper per person per night than staying in a hotel.
How can I make a booking?
A large part of our holiday villas can be booked online 24/7 on our website by clicking on the green "Book now" button at the villa.
If the villa is on request (the calendar will not be shown or is coloured orange) you can request more information by clicking on the "Availability" button.
If you do not wish to book online, you can of course also make a booking by telephone during office hours or contact us via the contact form and we will answer your request as soon as possible.
What is an option?
With an option, the accommodation will be held for you for a few days free of charge and without obligation. You then have plenty of time to consult with family or friends or find suitable flights. Normally you have an option for 2 to 3 days, depending on the destination.
How do I know if the accommodation is available?
Almost every accommodation has its own availability calendar where you can see if the holiday home is available on the dates of your choice. For an explanation of the colours you can consult the colour scheme at the top of the calendar.
If the accommodation does not have an availability calendar, this is most likely at the request of the manager or the owner, or the accommodation may be part of a larger group.
In this case you can check availability by clicking on the 'Availability' button. Of course you can also check availability by contacting us by phone, e-mail or via the contact form.
Why do I see the same accommodation several times in the list for a different number of people?
Some accommodations can be rented at different rates depending on the number of persons.
If you book a larger accommodation for only 4 persons then you book the whole accommodation, it is possible that the unused bedrooms are closed. It is therefore wise to indicate before arrival how many bedrooms you would like to use.
The accommodations have been published several times on the website for a different number of people in order to make them appear in searches from 4 to 6 people. Many owners of large properties accept bookings for fewer people at a reduced rate.
What are the total costs for the accommodation?
If you have searched with arrival and departure dates the rental price will be displayed automatically, this is the rental price together with any mandatory extra costs for the chosen length of stay.
If you wish to calculate the price for a different period, please first go back to the availability calendar to select or enter the desired dates.
All prices including mandatory extra costs, optional extras you can book with the villa and possible discounts can be found under the tab "Prices" in the individual accommodation description.
If no calendar is shown with the accommodation, how do I know the availability or the prices?
In some cases a holiday home may not have a calendar, this is most likely at the request of the manager or the owner, or the home may be part of a larger group. In this case you can check availability by clicking on the 'Availability' button. Of course you can also check availability or prices by telephone, e-mail or via the contact form.
