Wanted: Rental from start of May for 4 to 6 months. Hey All, I recently posted looking for long term rental but having no luck, it’s a nightmare out there! So trying a different approach. Anyone got or know of a quite one or two bedroom place with a little outside space for 4 to 6 months. I would prefer the campo and within about 20mins drive to Nerja/torrox areas. My budget would be up to €650 per month depending on size and location. I need it from start of May. If it helps I can pay a large lump sum up front. Reference and despot available. I am single woman with two small behaved dogs. I am a writer and will be working from home so quite location is important. I am also open to dog sitting for that period if anyone requires a paying sitter. Open to offers so please contact if have or know anyone who may be interested. Thanks lulu.

Rules & Regulations:

The blog and it’s readership are growing, and I anticipate a big readership jump in the high-season. These updated rules are necessary to keep it manageable. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Send in your text & photos- The address for your submissions is digamextra@protonmail.com The Deadline is 4pm. 1 pic per item or event only. 3 For Sale items per day max. Include all sale items/pics for that day in single email.
Photos- Please name your photo files appropriately before sending them in. It is difficult for me to sort thru a my downloaded daily pic files if they all have names like “image001.jpg”. I won’t reject poorly named pics, but some cooperation here would save me a lot of time. JPEG or JPG format only.
Keep Submissions As Short As Possible- If you have more than a paragraph of text content just submit a short description and a link to a site where interested readers can find it. No reason for me to print what is already available with just 1 click of a link.
Re-Submissions- What’s On events may post once a week, Services Offered once a month. Sale items previously posted must wait 1 month before re-submitting, and the price must have been lowered by at least 20%.
Put your post header in the “about” line of the email- it is difficult to sort emails with 1 word headers.
Capital Letters – Please do not include any words which you have turned into all capital letters.
Bars, Bands, Restaurants Clubs & Charities – Please limit your entries to One per Week! I suggest you list your programme of events & send it Tue/ Wed for inclusion in the Thursday Issue. You will get better results if you give folks 2 or 3 days advance notice of an upcoming event so they can plan in advance.
Identification Information from Everyone – I will not publish your submission unless you have included your name and location. Posts for Services, Sales or Recommendations must also include contact information (phone number &/or email address). WHY? You don’t have to register a verified account here to submit posts, like on Facebook, but the trade-off is you do need to include identification for the protection of the Publisher. That is one of the big differences between social media and blogs. Each has it’s own constantly evolving set of laws and rules to be followed. Some may find it intrusive, but this is progress in the digital age! -Ed.
Health Professionals- I will accept Ads for health professionals, therapies, medical treatments etc., ONLY if the person concerned provides a Licence Number to operate here in Spain, and name the issuing authority, in the text of the ad. You may offer a lecture on healing without credentials, but to offer healing as a service credentials are required. Why? Sorry to say, but there have been several submissions making false credential claims. This way you can verify it for yourself. So this is for the protection of all. -Ed.
Recommendations- I am accepting recommendations again, but only if submitter includes their own name, town and email! Anyone recommending themselves will be temporarily lose submission privileges.

Faulty Submissions: Incomplete submissions will be returned for correction. Resubmit full corrected submissions, returned submissions are deleted immediately from my Inbox.

DigameXtra cannot be responsible for incorrect info in reader posts or event announcements.
Anonymous submissions are unacceptable.

The decision what to post is the Editor’s. The Editor’s Decision is Final!
