—Vida y tiempo—
When I started Residencias Los Jardines, I started writing a weekly news letter -determined to tell all the good, bad, and the ugly. I knew some readers would be interested in the construction process. I expected others might be interested in the lifestyle of two people who had decided to live outside the box. For others, the adventures of Lita, the parrot and the cat took on an entertainment saga all its own.
Residencias Los Jardines is finished. We periodically have resales and rental availability. Some readers may be interested in this information.
Featured house this week
Paradisus Condos / Rohrmoser
Each of the units consists of two bedrooms / two bathrooms, and a large living/dining/kitchen area. The floor plan of each of these units has eliminated the optional "den / office" divider. The result is a larger area offering more flexible furniture arrangements while still maintaining the option of including an office area. At 105m2 plus two parking spots each and storage locker, they offer a great opportunity for someone seeking views, security, central location, and first class, all round living...

This 1,716 sf. (plus parking for one car) two story, detached house, with three terraces, two bedrooms (one on each floor) and upstairs master suite is a beautiful home. This home consists of two VERY large bedrooms (one on each floor) with en-suite bathrooms and a powder room, each with large closets with extensive built-ins for personal organization. The vaulted living room and ground floor bedroom ceilings as well as the master bedroom on the 2nd floor, provide a feeling of grandeur while allowing the warmer air to rise and exit through the ceiling ventilating system.

This two story, detached 1,423 sf home + parking for one car has two bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms and a 2nd floor covered terrace.
The open railed wrought iron cement stair case leads to the 2nd level where the master bedroom with en-suite master bathroom as well as 2nd bedroom and en-suite bathroom are located. Also accessed from the 2nd floor hallway is the covered terrace.
This is a very nicely furnished home with a good floor plan for those wanting two floors.
WEATHER: Hot, dry and wind has died down in March... beautiful...
Health: I have still be plagued by this allergic rash... a new series of visit to docs and the current thinking is that the allergy is weakening and will die away... I hope so... this has not been a lot of fun!
Aftermath of break-in: it appears the association will be enhancing the perimeter security.
Car: now I have to wait for the plates to be uploaded into a data base so I can buy the operating license for the balance of the year. Since next week is Semana Santa and virtually everything is closed down, the wait is likely to be longer than otherwise.
Foreclosure: my friend waits for the "offer" to be finalized and the deal to close -probably another two months.
Condo property taxes: as suspected, we were not the only ones affected by some incompetent programmer. There seem to be lots of cases which need to be adjudicated... getting anything done the first time is difficult in this country, fixing even the simplest things is really, really difficult. I can see this going on for a long time... like the car...
