Services Needed-Transport Luggage from Airport to Competa

Friends are travelling to Competa but the 6 of them will fill the car, so they have no space left  for their luggage. Are there people around who can bring their luggage to Competa (Campo – +/- km 6 on Competa-Torrox road) and later on back to Malaga airport? Price? I cannot decide for them but I can give them an advice.

Recommendation Needed-Air Conditioning

We are considering putting air conditioning in 2 small bedrooms which are only used every August when our family come. These two bedrooms share a small balcony at the back of the house and we wonder whether it would be better to have two units inside sharing one unit outside on the balcony.  This is slightly more expensive than to have two units outside but does anyone know if this is a better option?

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
