—Vida y tiempo—
When I started Residencias Los Jardines, I started writing a weekly newsletter -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 re-sales and rental availability. Some readers may be interested in this information.
rentals & sales
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 2nd story, 1,227 sf (113 m2 + one parking space) )is a georgous home with one of the best views at Los Jardines. The very large front covered terrace faces west and is suitable for entertaining; the off-bedroom covered terrace faces east for sun sets. This very tastefully furnished and fully equipped home offers a lifestyle envied by many. The owner offers financing if desired.
Weather: Mostly partly sunny, normal rainy weather, no wind, temperatures 25C / 78F -beautiful.
MANAGING OURSELVES: we are running neck and neck to the bottom of the barrel with the US political BS. We met, voted, and I can't believe what happened... no, I can believe it... I just don't want to believe it... time to re-think life and the future... commitments, associations, etc... it will be better than I think... perhaps it will be worse than I imagine... time for an exit plan from Los Jardines... second time I have been within a hairs breath of changing the future except one person failed me...
Potential Sale: We have had some interest in purchasing 123. As of this writing, there seems to be agreement but some issues have yet to be confirmed. We'll see.
I have been bedeviled by one house that has more bloody problems than all the others put together. I get one problem solved, two more show up. I am not liking this... neither is the owner, I am sure. The house was built for the owner and has features that the owner wanted. He left and those features remain; some are too delicate for a rental house... or we are just into a situation of everything going wrong at the same time.
News Items of the Week
1. RECOPE -breaking it up... this will be a step in the right direction but I doubt if it will happen -way too many people on the gravy train. It is way too powerful, morally corrupt, and financially out of control. It really adds no value that I can see to anyone other than the employees.
2. Solis says the country is running out of cash. He is responsible for increasing the budget double digits (19% first year) and has passed a law limiting deficits to become effective in 2018 -next administration. The new government won't be bound by this law.
Last week President Solís announced that there are insufficient funds to pay all government obligations. He wasn't talking about the future, he was talking about next week! The "Fiscal" here is so inept and mismanaged that they didn't see the shortfall coming until it was right upon them. Revenue intake must be at historical highs, but the spending increases planned -largely to fund indexed government pensions and the like, seem to have no limit or controls.
