Hi just to say a big Thank you to all the people who advertise their property on here as I got 100% response rate..thank you. Other websites you either dont a repsonse or get one some 3 weeks after you sent a request..dont get it perhaps my 11 night booking wasnt enough. Anyway all fixed up for next summer after a break of visiting PP of 4 yrs or so.

Yes it is true but the rest of the website including the forum will not be affected.

Couldn't agree more! We've had 6 holidays in PP from 4 advertisers on this website (went to a couple of apartments twice). It was a joy to deal direct with friendly owners who were prompt, efficient and helpful - and clear and honest about what was being offered.

I wholly agree with what's been said in the above posts. The pp.com private rentals section is excellent and it will be a significant loss when it closes on 01 Oct. I have trusted those adverts and the pp.com process for many years.

So -

Please can someone give advice as to which websites are good to use and are trusted (as has been the case with pp.com) for private rentals in our favourite resort. Thanks.

I realise that many of you will be disappointed but we will no longer be taking advertising for Private Rentals on PuertoPollensa.com from Oct 1st.

There have been many advances in technology, in particular on mobile platforms, provision of facilities such as online booking and payment as well as changes in EU legislation and changes to EU VAT which our technical platform cannot support. Unfortunately as a very small company (mainly me!) we do not have the resources to meet these demands so with considerable sadness we have felt obliged to make these changes to our website.

Instead we will be promoting Private Rentals from other rental websites who do offer more advanced facilities.

The website puertopollensa.com will continue to operate as before, focussing on the destination Puerto Pollensa and offering advertising in various areas and none of these changes affect the forum.

If you are interested in any of the properties currently advertised on puertopollensa.com/rentals do make your enquiries before the end of the month.

Default A BIG Thank You

Just wanted to say I will miss the rental adverts on this website. Everytime I have contacted one you always get a response, the adverts were always easy to look at and the calenders for that matter. Thank you to the property owners for an excellent service plus a thanks to the website for having these adverts.

Most adverts include a phone number - it may be worth taking s note of any numbers for properties that interest you so that you have them for future years.

I am really sorry this feature is going. I have found some great properties for us and others over the years. Yesterday I went through most of the properties and saved the pages as Pdf files of those with phone numbers which may be of interest in the future. I have always felt very confident booking these properties.

Will all the previous posts about accommodation remain on the forum or will they have to be removed because as Marilyn and its CD suggest, it would be good to have these for reference
