Can I rent yurts, tents, tipis, caravans or Arab tents as holiday rentals in Spain?
I have a lovely garden with two Yurts, fully equipped with all you need to have a wonderful holiday time in Spain, a nice pool, luxury amenities, air condition, heater, a full bathroom with walking shower, everything you wonder to have an amazing time in Spain. Can I rent those two Yurts as a Holiday Rental property in Spain? Could I get the code from the Government and rent in sites like Airbnb, HomeAway, booking.com or Tripadvisor?
Definitively not, it sounds odd but the law is clear and conscious, you only can rent as a Holiday Rental Property a HOUSE, VILLA, or APARTMENT.
You need to know the decrees are done by the different Regional Tourism Boards. What does means? It means, Spain first Industry is TOURISM, and the government treat it to make an excellency service as much as possible, so all the types of tourism business as hotels, apart-hotels, campings, and Tourism apartments has to pass a severe test every year. This test controls from every Regional Government gives to every different business a ratio on standard services, and check if everything is ok to make the holidaymakers get the best impression of nice holiday time in Spain.
That’s why we need to understand first that, and then we will realize other ways of houses (many times better than an average apartment) as tipis, tents, or caravans, couldn’t be treated as houses, and the government doesn’t accept it as a house or home.
We know the actual government has on the table a new decree that will fix the problems of thousands of owners are having to get, for example, the first occupation license, they are talking about to change this compulsory document at the moment into a more flexible document that the town halls will give to the owners, so this will sort the situation of the owners of apartments or houses built before 1983, when first occupation licenses doesn’t exists.
