It always surprises me the differing attitudes that some owners have when it comes to smaller parties wanting a larger property. I sometimes see annoyance in owners’ comments saying, or implying, these guests are wasting their time, Why? I know from my own experience, before I owned a villa myself, my wife and I used to stay in nothing less than a 4 bedroom property. We like the extra space and there are a lot of other people out there that feel the same and are completely willing to pay the extra cost for the privilege.
My advice to owners of larger properties is to treat the parties of 2, 3 etc just the same as larger groups and quote your rates, you may be surprised at the response.
