Recommendation: Very disappointed, that Michela who has done my nails to perfection for many years, was not working at Sole Salon Nerja anymore, just to find out that this smart, sweet young woman has opened her own Studio Jeyyy! She located at “Calle Antonio Ferrandis 33, Nerja”, mobile phone 642 354 056 (by appointment). The Studio is just down from the Super Sole supermarket with plenty of parking in the area.
I’m so happy I did not lose her and thinking there are probably many others like me wondering where to find her. So hurry on over, all you pretty girls and ladies that need beautiful nails. Patricia, Torre del Mar; deassola AT gmail DOT com
Thank you Naythan + Ironing Recommendation: A special thank you to you Naythan for your help with my request for a person to do our ironing. Also your information regarding WhatsApp. You are providing an excellent service, and a lifeline for people like me with mobility problems who are practically housebound.
A lovely lady applied for ironing work and started within 24 hours. If anyone else is interested I wish to recommend her, I have her permission. Her name is Maria O. Tel.(0034)626683359. I can personally recommend her ironing. She informed me her approximate charges before she came, and was very reasonable and I have no hesitation in recommending her to others. She also offers other services, in the sewing line. Regards Judith/Competa
