The usual arrival time is after 4:00 p.m. and departure around 10:00 a.m. Should you need to arrive or depart at other hours, please inform us prior to your arrival and we will do everything possible to accommodate your schedule. We enforce these hours when occupancy rate is high, to allow us sufficient time for a thorough preparation of the property for the next client arriving the same day of your departure.


4.- How do I get to my villa or apartment?

Once your reservation is confirmed, we will send you clear directions to ensure your easy access to the villa/apartment.

We can arrange a chauffeur or taxi to pick you up at the airport. The driver will receive you at the airport arrival area with a sign holding your name. You will be charged directly by theriver. Please bear in mind that drivers charge extra for waiting, should your flight be delayed.

If you rather rent a car, make sure you reserve a car prior to your arrival so that it is ready for you. In high season rental cars may be fully booked.

Prior to your arrival, we will send you a contact telephone number of the agent who will be welcoming you to the villa/apartment. This person will show you the villa/apartment, explain how everything works, give you local information of interest, hand over the keys and collect any remaining payment or security deposit for your stay.

FAQ Marbella rentals6.- Who will assist me in case of breakdown or information during my stay?
Our agents at Lamar Properties will be pleased to give you any local information you may need. Should you need any repairs, please inform us promptly, so that we can take action immediately and solve any problem that may arise.

7.- Which services are included during my stay?
Lamar Properties will prepare your reserved villa/apartment so that you find it in optimum conditions to be occupied by the number of persons specified in the reservation. You will find the property completely clean, with all electronic equipment functioning correctly, the beds made up and a set of bath towels for each person. A change of sheets and towels for each person will be found in the closets.

All villas include gardening and swimming pool maintenance. The personnel in charge of this will follow an established work schedule.

The basic and thorough cleaning of the property upon your departure is included, unless specified otherwise when making the reservation. We request that you kindly leave the property tidy and reasonably clean, kitchen utensils and crockery clean. Should the cleaning require more time than reasonably established, or requires cleaning of curtains, carpets/rugs, tapestry, walls, etc. we would have to deduct this cost from the security deposit.

Should you require further domestic service (maid, cook, babysitter, etc.) during your stay please let us know upon making your reservation, so that we can properly organize this extra service. Some villas include maid service, which is specified on the property profile. We do offer other extra services which you can find under Concierge & VIP services.

8.- How many persons can occupy the property?

The number of persons occupying the property must always be the same as those stated in the reservation, and never over the maximum capacity for each property. We can provide travel cribs for babies/children under 2 years of age.

9.- Are pets allowed?

Most of the properties do not allow pets. Please let us know if you plan to travel with your pet before you make the reservation, so that we check with the owner. A written authorisation will be provided if the owner accepts a pet. Bear in mind that you will be responsible for any damage caused by your pet.

10.- Why is a security deposit required?

A security deposit is required to cover any possible damages/repairs and losses of inventory. This deposit generally will be reimbursed through bank transfer within 7 days of your departure, once we have verified that the property has been returned in the same state as handed on arrival, and the property is tidy and reasonably clean. Should a repair or extra cleaning be necessary you will be informed and we will send you a detailed account of the cost, which will be deducted from the deposit.
