There are great benefits to doing a housesit. The biggest one is being able to visit a place that one might not visit and not having to pay for a hotel/apartment. The other big benefit as far as the Wagoners are concerned is that we get Pet Time!
Estepona is a little gem on the west end of Costa del Sol, in southern Spain.

With a population of about 67,000, it is full of traditional Spanish flare along with modern conveniences and spectacular beaches. It is an excellent choice for a visit.

After being married 15 years, Alan is a pro at knowing exactly what I like.
Mijas and Marbella Spain (Costa del Sol)

I had read about a little white village named “Mijas” (Mee Haas), so not long after passing Malaga we were there (about 85 minutes).
