About Marlis Rodio

Marlis Rodio was born at the end of WW2 in Denmark, where she grew up. She moved to Switzerland when she was 20 and she was married and divorced there. Marlis became interested in IT in the late 60's and worked on mainframes since 1968 until 2003. She moved to UK in 1978 and started her own IT support business in 1996. This was expanded in 2004 it to include basic IT traning.

Talk about false economy!

I purchased, one and a half years ago, a second-hand fridge freezer for €100 plus delivery. It died, and my poor lodgers have been without a fridge-freezer in this heat.

I feel for them, especially as they were returning guests. However they were very understanding, and as my caretaker had lost his wife and so of course couldn’t concentrate 100% on them I have offered that they don’t have to pay for the utilities during their stay. I feel that’s the least I can do to show some goodwill. My caretaker has now replaced the fridge-freezer with a brand new one. Many thanks to him.

I have had and still have a great season, thanks to Novasol, my letting agent. It has been the best move I have made toward renting out the flat. This year it has been rented out all of June, July and August bar 1 week. And it’s even occupied for 3 weeks in November. Not at all bad, at least it is now paying for itself.

Bookings update for 2017

I was tidying up my background database in readiness for 2017 and when I looked at the booking from 2016 I was so pleasantly surprised to see that there had been 118 days booked by my letting agent, many, many thanks.

So I entered the calendar for 2017 and moved all the pre-bookings and was even more surprised as there is already 110 days booked (28 of which is from my friend in Sweden).

I have also released 2 new guides, one in English and one in Danish, of how to get to the flat from Alicate and Murcia airport.

Living without a lift

As you my know my flat is on the second floor and the garage is under level. Now this makes 32 steps to where the lift is, then 3 flights of stairs  (consisting of  3, 9, 3 flights plus 10 steps to next flight) and a final 24 steps to the flat. It is therefore not a surprise that I carry a small chair, to rest and catch my breath on each landing.

I will be so fit or so exhausted at the end of my holiday.  I hope the lift is mended soon.
