What would you suggest about Marbella?

I currently have a 2-bedroom unit for 8/23 (Sunday). BTW, I got that using a 1 bedroom gold BeachPlace Towers. :D Anyway, my daughter-in-law was asked by her employer to attend a conference on Aug. 30 stateside which would mean that my son and his wife would be cutting their trip to Spain by 2 days. I called II who said that all I can do is keep calling to see if a Friday check-in is ever available. What is the probability that a 2-bedroom Marbella in August with a Friday check-in is just sitting around waiting for me?!

I could exchange for an earlier week, too. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks for your help.

It can happen. We often book friday to fri as the flights are cheaper than on Saturdays. If you/they have flexibility on flights they could extend their stay and go to one of the nearby cities for a few days eg Seville/Granada, although it would be hot, they are lovely places to visit and you can get cheap places to stay if you book soon enough.
