Wednesday, 9th December 2020 `Tis the Season…..

 

December brings to an end a very atypical year and the hope of better things in the future. Preparations for a slightly different Christmas and thoughts turning towards 2021.

Many people (me included!) will say that this year has deprived them of that wonderful feeling of anticipation.  They missed counting the weeks and days until a special event. This may have been a family celebration or a much needed holiday in Mallorca.

Having worked in the travel industry for over 30 years I believed that I had `seen it all´.  However 2020 presented an opportunity to survive a global panademic which halted the world of travel in its tracks. I never thought I would see a Mallorca with deserted beaches and closed up hotels and restaurants in July.  Mallorca claimed back its famous title `The Isle of Calm´.  Crystal clear waters, blue skies, silence overhead and plenty of time to explore the hidden corners.  I shared stunning photos on social media which I hope you enjoyed. However  Mallorca missed you, the all important tourist. Those visitors who were able to travel were knocked out by the sheer beauty and relaxation Mallorca offered them. A reminder of travel during the 70´s some said. They were also very complimentary as to how safe they felt here in Mallorca. Enhanced cleanliness and extra safety measures confirmed that they had made the right decision to travel. Many eagerly await a return in 2021.

I am delighted that I dedícated time to improving the content of my website:  www.parasolpropertymallorca.com. I hope you agree that it is easier to navigate and pleasant on the eye.  I shall be unveiling the website in Spanish before the end of the year too. This is in recognition of the increase of visitors from the domestic market.

I also had time to search for some fantastic additions to the holiday rental properties.  A couple of apartments, a few luxury villas and a handful of rustic rural retreats. Most of these are now included on the website under the appropriate location. Naturally all properties have valid tourist licenses and the numbers are clearly displayed on the website as per local regulations. Parasol Property Mallorca is available 24hrs (emergencies) during your stay. We provide free welcome food packs in all our self catering properties.

Naturally on the home page you can add your own filters for locations, types of property and essential requirements. e.g.a private swimming pool.  Remember  I know my properties personally and want you to choose the perfect property for you and your guests.  I have several adjacent properties which are perfect for the extended family or group of friends who want to travel together but retain some privacy.  Properties with gated pools for extra peace of mind.  Properties where a car is not necessary. Ground floor or top floor apartments. Feel free to send me a message. I pride myself on the personal service provided.

Parasol Property Mallorca has continued to work hard throughout the panademic.  Personalised property management brought peace of mind to many owners who have been unable to visit their properties for months on end. Some took the opportunity to make great improvements. Regular meetings with a variety of home improvement professionals has led to various sucessfully completed projects. I should mention that 3 bedroom Villa Casa Alexander has totally reformed 3 bathrooms to a high standard.  Professional photos were taken last week and shall be added to the website very soon. Meanwhile 3 bedroom Apartment Llennaire Beach is currently installing a brand new kitchen with white goods and new patio doors. These improvements are sure to increase demand in these two fabulous holiday rental properties in Puerto Pollensa.

Current Trends

There is a clear change in potential customers search requirements.  Guests are searching for larger properties offering extra space. Self catering is important for families and a preference for rural properties are top of the list.  Naturally flexible booking conditions and enhanced cleaning are essential as we move forward. Parasol Property Mallorca understands the concerns. The majority of our properties will accept late changes to your travel dates, cancellations and we will also allow delayed final payments if there are doubts as to your ability to travel. Some of you carried forward your 2020 holiday to 2021 taking advantage of our flexible conditions and free assistance.

There is considerable interest for accommodation for mid length stays.  I have even added it as a new category on the website. We now understand that if we can work remotely then why not choose where to work from.  The idea of working from Mallorca is no longer a distant dream.  It is becoming a reality for many Europeans.  Parasol Property Mallorca offers several beautiful properties with a variety of budgets for stays of 1 to 6 months.  Take a look at this modern villa, just 35mins from Palma airport.  Just imagine taking a dip in the pool between zoom meetings!

Property sales have fallen in the Balearic Islands over the last 9 months. This is mainly due to travel restrictions. The lower end of the market offers some bargains for cash buyers. However the property market remains bouyant due to the reasons mentioned above. In fact property prices have increased an average 1% during 2020. Mallorca is still paradise in the eyes of the investor!  Parasol Property Mallorca has completed a handful of sales during 2020. I expect to increase this during 2021 due to the honest professional service provided. I provide a discreet property finder service which is popular and saves buyers lots of time and frustration.
