Rentals- Opinion

I think I speak on behalf of many property owners on the Costa del Sol.

For many years I have rented my apartment to cover the overheads and running costs. I have not been in the business of making a profit.

My actions have bought many visitors to the Costa who have supported the local ecomomy by spending in the shops, restaurants, bars, transport etc.

For my own use and for rental clients, I have scrupulously provided a well maintained and clean property which has also provided employment for local builders, renovators, cleaners, and maintainance services.

Initially the development of the property bought in resources to Spain and helped to build the infrastructure now available to the local residents.

The new rental laws are so demanding that many ordinary people will no longer offer their premises for rental.

A great loss to the Costa economy and my many Spanish friends who own businesses and who have benefitted from the influx of rental clients and my own regular visits.




Recommendation – Calcium Stain Treatment

Cal build up can be easily removed with agua fuerte unless you have a septic tank

Available at most supermarkets and Chinese bazaar stores.

Alternatively slowly pour a full can of coca cola into the bowl and leave overnight. When you see the result you will think twice about drinking the stuff     Lol!





Recommendation- Photographer

Found on Digamextra  (where else) photographer Robert Bell whose photographs have saved us from penury.

The bookings on our apartments in Nerja were doing very badly this

year until we downloaded Rob’s photos.

And now we are receiving almost continuous enquiries.

Can’t praise him or Digamextra enough.

I’m looking for a broken smartphone. I’ll only use it as a server for my security-cameras.

It has to be in working order (only a broken screen and may be damaged on the outside).

TC-ME smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

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. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
