The first point you will need to consider is where you want to spend your vacation in Spain? Are you someone who prefers to be in the heart of things, say living in a town, or are you someone who would prefer privacy and tranquility, therefore you may decide to rent a vacation home in the country you may even wish to rent a holiday house in the mountains, or villa by the lakes or on the Coast.
You next step should be what sort of property you would like to rent for your vacation? Do you want to rent an apartment, townhouse, villa or finca (country house with land). However, what you must remember is your budget (how much you are willing to spend on your dream vacation in Spain).
As third step, I would suggest that you go on to the internet and see what the various vacation rentals web sites and holiday home directories have to offer. There are so many interesting places in Spain where you can go. Chose some vacation properties and contact the owners of them. Ask for more pictures and information of the vacation home and maybe for some pictures and information about the district. Chose one of them and book it online. The most vacation rental owners accept credit card payments.
