My family are planning a family holiday next year in the south of Spain (for convienience, probably somewhere on the Costa del Sol). However, there's a lot of them coming (around 13-14 adults and 7-8 kids), and it appears that the options for places suitable to accomodate everyone are limited (and very expensive).

Can anyone here recommend me any places/companies that they have had good personal experiences with?

You seem surprised that accommodation to fit up to 22 people is "limited". or, indeed, expensive.

However, our neighbour's were in a similar situation a couple of years ago. They had to end up renting several houses in the same area. I think there were about 20 of them and they had 4 houses rented between them. It will also depend on what time of year you are coming. 3 bed houses can go for as little as 350 a month in Winter but 350 a week and more in the Summer.

No, I'm not surprised that there's not a huge amount of places available (although I did expect there to be a few more options available than I've found).

I've found somewhere through ownersdirect which looks like it fits the bill, but I'm a bit concerned about putting down a 50% deposit (close to 3,000 euros) with an estate agency in Spain. I'd much prefer to use a reputable escrow service to act as a middleman for the transaction. Does anyone here know of any companies who offer this service for holiday rentals?

You are better dealing with an owner direct and a 25% deposit down is the norm balance 4 weeks prior to arrival hope you have deep pockets you are going into millionaire country sorry billionaire country.

6000 euros a week it must be a very modest for that sort of money for 20 are you sure thats not per night send me the link i will tell you if its suitable.

Love Hugh
