Gardens and patios can become over run with weeds etc. Use The House Maids management company all of these problems and many more can be prevented. When you or your guests arrive you can then relax in your clean and well maintained property.
How do you keep you management prices so low?
Unlike many property management companies who rely solely on holiday rental properties, we also manage properties for clients who are residents in Spain all year round and also maintain offices, shops and communities. We also carry out a lot of home help work this allows us to keep prices competitive but not affect the high standard of management.
Why should I use your key holding service?
Some people give their keys to a neighbor and have them keep an eye on their property for a few Euros, this is common practice on the Costa's in Spain but this is highly illegal and your insurance company will void your insurance should you have a burglary. Anybody who is taking payment for cleaning or key holding must be registered and liable for taxes if not they are breaking the law. The authorities are clamping down heavily on this practice. The House Maids are fully legal and registered with the Spanish authorities.
