Seacrest Kennels Going Strong

We would like to set the record straight.  Contrary to rumours and speculation, Seacrest Kennels in Nerja is STILL in business.

Our family has owned and operated Seacrest for over 15 years and we plan on staying another 15 years or more.

Unfortunately, there is a new boss in town in charge of the motorway access road and he has had the signs of local businesses removed, including ours, presumably for aesthetic reasons which has led some people to jump to the wrong conclusion.

If you would like to contact us or make a booking you may do so through our website at seacrestkennels dot es or call us at 95 252 1426.

We look forward to caring for your pets when you take your next holiday.


Kurt and Laura

What’s On – Visit to the Orchid House, Estepona

The Phoenix Club are off to Estepona on Friday the 21st April to visit The Orchid House situated in the middle of town.

It is the largest Orchid House in all Europe, bigger than the Palacio de Cristal – Crystal Palace – in the Retiro Gardens in Madrid.  Nearly 11,000 square feet in area, the glasshouse has an overall volume of over half a million cubic feet in a modernist design.

It has three glass domes to provide natural light, the largest being 100 feet high and weighing fifty tons. Inside, apart from the thousands of trees and plants, there is a 56 foot high waterfall splashing down into the gardens, and a lake.

The gardeners have created separate areas to represent the natural environments of South America and Asia, with their own native orchids on display. Over 8,000 different species have been cultivated in the Municipal Greenhouses. Care has been taken to select varieties that flower at different periods of the year, so that whenever you come, there will be a stunning display of orchids in flower.

The Orchid House is sitting in a 160,000 square foot right in the heart of a busy town.

Plenty of time to have a wander around Estepona old town, have a bite to eat or just stroll on their fabulous paseo.

The price?  €20pp includes entry of €3 to the Orchid House and driver’s gratuity

We pick up at 08.30 at Algarrobo Lidl and 08.45 at Torre del Mar bus station and returning from Estepona at 17.00

How 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 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos Must Be In  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  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 format…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
