Here are some frequently asked questions and answers. Please do contact us for any question you might have. We are more than happy to answer your queries.
While cleanliness has always been a top priority, both for hosts and guests, right now it is an especially critical, urgent and important issue due to the risk of spreading infection. Based on CDC recommendations, an extensive cleaning followed by disinfection of all elements and surfaces is necessary between reservations, due to which gaps between stays (check-ins and check outs) will be increased, as per requirements.
As a social distancing measure, we are happy to offer a system for self check-in and check out.
In order to help guests maintain a higher standard of cleanliness and hygiene, the apartment will be well-stocked with all the essential amenities, as well as cleaning appliances and products, plus some thoughtful extras like hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, wipes, extra towels and sheets..
Please do not hesitate to ask us about our enhanced cleaning routine, we understand and share your concern.

Why choose a legally registered holiday apartment?
Shorehouse is a legally registered tourist holiday apartment in compliance with Decree 75/2005, the Murcia Tourism Board and the Tax Department.
In Murcia, holiday houses are regulated by a Decree dated 2005 (D 75/2005 de 24 de Junio) and Shorehouse is legally registered as meeting the requirements of this decree for tourist use.
Tax authorities and the Murcia government are increasingly clamping down on undeclared (and therefore illegal) holiday rentals with heavy fines. The government aims to encourage the fully legal rental of holiday properties in a campaign against black money by imposing heavy fines on illegal lets, while at the same time guaranteeing quality accommodation for visitors, with regular inspections for maintaining these standards. In this way, the government has set standards for regulating the industry and to ensure that renters are protected when they do choose a private holiday rental and to also ensure that homeowners earning money through holiday rentals are declaring their income.
