28. Semi-retirement? Yes please!

Lock down has made an impact on all of our lives and that continues throughout 2020.  Personally we have had time to re-evaluate our own lives, our workload and what we truly want for our future.

Our house2

I can honestly say that I have really enjoyed being at home, building benches, tables and pottering about trying to make our waste bank into something that resembles a rockery.  I have loved it.  We do have a rather large cave and lots of area around us so there is always something to be done.  My ‘to do’ list never gets any smaller.  As soon as one job gets crossed off another two get added.

I would never have dreamt that I would have said that at the start of this year.  We were working hard to build the rental business up at Cuevas de la Paz (CDLP) which were doing so well.  Rentals were coming in and I was kept very busy – all was looking great for 2020.  Then Covid-19 hit giving me time to sit and think.

It has made us realise what is important, what we need to live a comfortable life and what makes us happy.  We have everything we can possible want right on our doorstep.  We have a lovely home that has been reformed and designed to our liking, we have a second cave next door, (Cuevas Limón), that has been reformed and designed with the view of renting out for holiday lets and we have our wonderful life in cave land.  CDLP was certainly an extra bonus but its success has been our/its downfall.  This sounds a little odd but that is what has happened.

Cuevas Limón (our cave next door) has been fully licensed for a while now but because we have three rescue dogs that share the outdoor space we were in two minds of what to do.  We have now decided to begin advertising the rental from January 2021 but… only to dog lovers.  I am still working on the website so it’s work in progress but take a look and see what we have to offer http://www.caveholidaysspain.com

imagesWe are both of a certain age and want to look forward to a slower pace of life, as we had in lockdown.  So the decision was made 24 hours ago to advertise the sale of CDLP.

WOW.  we did not expect such a response so quickly.  We have had so many people wanting further information we were rather taken aback.   One couple came to look within a couple of hours of me advertising on FB.  We did really like them and talks continue.  Other messages have been discounted as we have decided against the ‘Rent to Buy’ option.  We have been warned by a few people not to go down this path as it can be very troublesome for both parties and that is what we are trying to get away from.   There have been other cash buyers wanting to continue with information which is great.  So…..watch this space… it’s all looking promising.

Would you say I was daft if I said that I wanted the CDLP to be bought by people that shared the same dreams  and passion as we had – well yes we are daft and a little mad but at our age we are allowed.

Stay safe, stay happy.
