How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Long Term Rental: 6-7 Month Rental in La Herradura
Do you know anyone who is interested in finding a very special sublet from March-September? Perhaps you’ve heard good things about La Herradura and would like to experience it first-hand before pursuing a longer term rental or purchase? My villa offers exceptional, unobstructed views to the sea, as well as a very quiet location on the Punta de la Mona. The villa is equipped with everything one would want for a unique experience in comfort and peace as you watch the birds flying over head, and listen to the sea from the terraces and inside the home. We have a Berkey water filtration system so no need to be carting large plastic bottles of water. We also have a clothes dryer and high end appliances, in addition to quality utensils, cookware and tableware. We’ve tried to think of every convenience that would make for a very special experience. This 2 bedroom and 2.5 baths home is exceptionally well equipped with 2 hair dryers, spices in the cabinet, paper products, laundry detergent etc. The master bath is exceptionally well designed with a wonderful large soaking tub and separate, large modern shower. Both baths are ensuite with the half bath upstairs by the open concept kitchen livingroom/dining area. Staying here will feel like you’re moving into a good friend’s or family member’s home. There are 2 terraces with plantings so if one loves to garden, you’d be put at the top of the list although having a green thumb is not a requirement as the watering is on an automatic sprinkler system. The rent is 2000€ per month.
Serious inquiries only please. I would be happy to send along photos and there would be an opportunty to view the villa. Please don’t hesitate asking any questions. I can be reached at

Recommendation for Scott Wilson from SPW: We bought our dream house in Spain five years ago, thinking that we’d spend our well-earned retirement in perfect tranquility. After all, this is the sixth home we’ve owned in four countries and on three different continents, with never any major problems other than normal maintenance.
At the very outset, we were faced with rising damp that of course had been masked over for the sale. There was also a lovely swimming pool that had serious structural problems that had been covered up as well. The first major rain uncovered a leaky roof, and at the back of the house, there was flooding.
For the first four years, we had no less than five different so-called builders (Spanish and English), tackling the problems. Despite all the “work” done, not to mention the money spent, things just got worse; to the point where we had black mold on the living room wall and part of the ceiling, facing the pool side.
We nearly worked with yet another person, but one the solutions he proposed was so preposterous, that we let him go.
Luckily, we came across a Digamextra ad for SPW, Scott Wilson.
To make a long story short, Scott and his team got busy in June of 2019, locating the different sources of leakage. The first was the swimming pool, the second was a leaking underground gully, between the pool and the house that nobody had ever discovered. They both contributed to water seeping under the front side of the house and up the walls. SPW took it in two stages, first the gully and then the pool, which included landscaping and tiling of the pool terrace, and complete treatment of the walls and ceilings inside the house. Scott took photographs of all the pictures we had on the walls, treated the areas, painted them and put all the pictures back in their correct position. Wow, never saw that before!
The third phase has just been completed. That was a major project in the back of the house, which, again, had been treated several times with no results. We regularly experienced severe flooding in this area, especially with intense rain, such as we’ve had of late.
We think that he’s now brought our home up to the standard we expected when we purchased it. Please contact us if you would like further explanation as to why we are so pleased with Scott and his guys.
Oh, BTW, the roof doesn’t leak any more either.
Muchas gracias, Scott, Danny, Jose and the others.
