Short Let Holiday Homes

All you need to know about short-term rental properties to transform your Malta holiday

Rather than booking the traditional hotel room for the trip, many now prefer an affordable and far more spacious alternative: renting a short-let property. A holiday rental home is the ideal accommodation for a short stay in Malta for business or leisure, particularly if you are visiting Malta as a family or group.

Plus, renting a short-let property for a holiday can be simple and straightforward with RE/MAX Malta.

With the expert guidance of RE/MAX Malta, here is our guide to short-term holiday rentals on the Maltese islands.

A wide range of properties

RE/MAX Malta has the largest database of properties on the island, with not just homes for purchase but a vast range of places for short or long let.

There are many different property types available, such as comfortable beachfront or city centre apartments, self-catering villas, luxury farmhouses in the countryside or even charming townhouses, with something to suit any taste, budget or holiday wish list.

Properties listed on the RE/MAX database are finished to a high standard and are within easy reach of many nearby amenities and attractions including shopping centres, local landmarks and popular coastal promenades. Some may also have sea views and extras such as a swimming pool. RE/MAX Malta can even accommodate requests for rental homes with entertainment space, housekeeping services, private chefs or spa and health facilities, to create the ultimate holiday getaway.

Serviced apartments are also included on the RE/MAX Malta database. These five-star properties are usually part of a luxury development that offers high-end amenities and facilities such as underground parking, landscaped gardens or access to a communal swimming pool.

Priority property listings

As Malta’s leading real estate agency, RE/MAX Malta often lists properties on an exclusive basis that are not available anywhere else.

Our highly trained and experienced team always hand-picks our listings with careful consideration, to ensure that our customers receive the finest properties – and the best service experience – on the island.

Short rental periods

For most lease properties in Malta or Gozo, the minimum rental period can be as short as one week – ideal for a brief escape to the Mediterranean sunshine.

In fact, only rental periods that extend over a year are locally considered as a long let.

Choices to fit every visit

Since there is such a wide range of short-let properties available across the Maltese islands, there is something to fit every list of holiday requirements.

To narrow down the choice, there are several factors to consider that will help you and your RE/MAX agent select the right rental home for each visit. These considerations might include whether the purpose of your stay is for business or leisure, how many people plan to be staying, or if you require a short-let property while looking for a more permanent place to stay.

You should also consider the best location to stay on the island for the visit, depending on your holiday plans. If your itinerary includes days on the beach, scuba diving and sightseeing, a scenic seafront home might be the ideal choice. However, for business trips, an urban apartment close to Malta’s bustling smart hubs and city centres may be more convenient.

A simple rental process

Guided by RE/MAX Malta, the process of booking short-term rental accommodation in Malta is clear, simple and stress-free. We will guide you through every step, sorting any issues quickly and ensuring that you receive the best property for your budget and needs.

Having established your preferred location and holiday home wish list, simply communicate these to your dedicated RE/MAX agent who will assist you in finding and securing the ideal place to fit your vision. Once you have narrowed your search to a favourite property, we will negotiate a rental price with the landlord on your behalf.

A letting contract outlining the price, as well as any specific terms as agreed, is then drafted and signed by both the tenant and the landlord. For short lets, the standard procedure is to collect a deposit in advance as well as 10 per cent of the whole stay and 18 per cent as the agency fee.
