We are a family of 5, an older couple and three grown up daughters looking for a rental property in Tossa de Mar 5th - 13th August with a pool, have tried Owners Direct, HomeandAway, Homelidays, and Holidaylettings but despite enquiring with every property within our budget we are getting nowhere fast, have also tried properties in various other resorts on the Costa Brava, not the larger more commercial resorts admittedly because we don't like the bigger resorts, but again we are getting nowhere, either renters only book saturday to saturday, are fully booked despite still showing availability on their calendars, or don't bother replying.
Am now considering booking into a hotel self-catering - I have to do this because one of my daughters has coeliac disease and so can't eat hotel food - but would much prefer to rent a property.
What am I doing wrong this time, have done this for years in other parts of the world and found a rental property peak season without this much trouble??
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks.Edited: 4:31 pm, April 12, 2013
