When to snap up your dream Ibiza villa

Book ahead to get your perfect Ibiza villa

If you haven't started booking your dream Ibiza villa for 2017, now is the time of year when you should begin looking. Use the not too distant memory of this summer's holiday to motivate you because now until December is when the most popular villas will sell. As well as securing your ideal holiday home, the run up to Christmas is also the time when villa owners offer discounted rates and special offers, so you could even save a good wad of cash too.

Any villa that offers good value for money, is equipped with essentials like air-conditioning, comfortable seating outside and in and that is nicely decorated with an overall good look will sell well. Location is everything of course and that will depend on you, though consider that if a villa is close to a popular resort like Ibiza Town or Playa d'en Bossa, demand will be higher.

Whilst we recommend booking now, you can even start booking as early as July - those that act fast will usually get what they want. Many people who come to Ibiza year on year should think about booking for the next year whilst they are there as often a better rate can be had.

You can get started by taking a look at our villa pages where you will find a wide range of licenced properties from luxury to mid-range to budget and all points in between. We vet each villa on our pages individually to give you the assurance that what you see is what you get. Next, get yourself organised.

Action stations

If you follow these essential steps when choosing your perfect pad on Ibiza and you are much more likely to end up with a villa that meets your own specific needs:

  • Choose a trusted agency: You should look for a licensed villa rental agency to give you peace of mind that the villa you choose will be completely above board and legally registered. You should also ask your agency if they offer the possibility of making safe and secure payments.

  • Decide what you want. First, start looking now whilst you still have fond memories of the summer just gone to give you motivation Then ask yourself some questions: where do you want to be on the island, south or north? How many people are in your group and are you coming as a family or with friends? How much do you want to pay per person, per day? Ask yourself if you want to splash out on top end luxury or give yourself a limit if you are saving your pennies. Essentially, decide what it is you want from your holiday villa - plus remember to book off the time from work too.

  • Create a shortlist: By now you should have a list of villas that meet your requirements. Gather together all the quotes for each villa and ask any questions you need to ask so that you are fully informed on each property. From this you can make your final choice, with all your questions answered.

  • Get booking: We've said it before and we'll say it again, booking ahead is always best. Doing it in the right timeframe means you have more available dates, a wider selection of villas to choose from and you can take advantage of those special deals. If you get your holiday group involved early on, you'll have a much easier time in finalising your booking.

When it comes to booking villas on Ibiza, it's always best to plan in advance and the ideal time is right now. Remember also that there are many more villas on our pages, plus you can check our villas' Facebook page for updates about new villas and special offers.
