Happy New Year

It has been a great Christmas and New Year at the Heights, it was just like old times with the pool bar open again and people enjoying not just the weather, which has been beautiful, but meeting up with friends to have a seasonal drink.

The new year has passed with very few incidents however there has been one which I must draw peoples attention too.     There were two ladies in the lift and a man wanted to get in with his dog but the ladies did not want the dog in the lift with them, the man pushed past them into the lift and intimidated them all the way down. This obviously frightened the ladies. There are numerous reasons why people may not want to travel with a dog in the lift for example they may be frightened of dogs or they may be allergic too them so if somebody is waiting before you for the lift or is already in the lift and they make it clear they do not want the dog in there you must respect their wishes and wait for the lift to come back.

Hopefully now the new year is here we will be able to get on with replacing the green fencing up both sides of the complex and around the pool area. Meanwhile José is busy repairing drain covers and walls and repainting.

NOVEMBR 2017

Another year is coming to an end as we still enjoy nice weather, the nights are a little cooler now but we are still hitting 23 to 25 degrees in the day time.

The pool bar is open again and I am hearing very favourable comments from owners that have tried it, It is being run by Mike and Clare who are a British couple who have experience of a bar in mainland Spain  and they are being well accepted by the customers, if you fancy a beer or just a coffee or juice please pop down and support our local bar, they are also serving bar snacks.

The Christmas decorations are now up and switched on and we have planted a number of Poinsetas around the complex to add to the Christmas feel.

I have yet again had complaints about Dogs fouling on the complex and also the disgusting state of some balconies one in particular I have been sent pictures of is B303 the pictures show the balcony in a terrible state with dog excrement all over it, This is not acceptable on any balcony and the owners have been informed that action will be taken unless the situation changes drastically , again I ask if you long let make sure your tenants do not have pets, dogs or cats.

We now have the licence from the aumiento to carry out the works on the fences up both sides of the complex, the fences are being made and will be fitted as soon as they are ready.

I would like to wish all our owners a very happy Christmas, I know that we will see a lot of you over the xmas period but for those of you who are not coming out all the best for the new year .   Paul

 

OCTOBER 2017

October

The weather in October has been very good, but still no rain. Although the island seems to be coping with the water situation  it is still good to be careful with water usage.

The Pool Bar is re-opening on the 17th November under new management. We hope that their experience in the bar trade and their many new ideas will make the pool bar a nice place to go and meet friends and become a hub for the Heights community once again. We wish them well in their new venture. We will have more details and pictures in next months blog.

Although I was away for most of October the main problems on the Heights once again was dogs, barking, urinating on the complex and being off   leads. There was a serious incident on block A, the dog of an owner urinated by an apartment and the owner of that apartment asked the lady to clear up the mess her dog had just left instead of getting on and clearing it up the lady attacked the man verbally and physically, obviously he immediately went to the police and denounced her. The whole situation could have been avoided if she had adhered to the rules of the complex .

We are now preparing for Christmas the poinsettias should arrive soon for planting around the complex, and we will start to put up the Christmas decorations.

On a very sad note we would like to inform anybody who doesn´t already know that Mick who had the pool bar for thirteen years sadly passed away at the weekend, the funeral will be held on Monday  13th November at the church on Los Cristianos Square at  12 o´clock. Our sincere condolences to Pat and her family.

The weather in September carried on similar to august very hot but with many calimas.

We did have a couple of overcast days which were quite welcome at least for those of us that live here.

POOL BAR  we met the new tennant of the pool bar and they seem to have good ideas for it and most importantly they are very experienced in the trade both in the UK and on mainland spain, they tell me that they hope to open as early as the begining of Novembe l feel that we can work with them and hope they make a great success of there new business.they will be renting the area in front of the bar from the community and so now this seems to be sorted we can carry on with replacing the pool fence with glass as agreed at the agm .

Holidays  Jose and Matilda are back from there vacation now and we are back to normal and jose will be concentrating on maintenance around the complex ie socolos and broken tiles, lamps and carry on painting the fire hose cases and pipes.

I hope to see you all in tenerife soon and I hope the recent turmoil in flights ie ryanair and then the colapse of Monarch airlines today, doesnt put you off  coming out for your usual holidays in the sun .

August 2017

Last Updated on Sunday, 17 September 2017 05:04 Written by Paul Tassell Sunday, 17 September 2017 05:04

The weather in August has been fantastic with everyone getting very tanned, there were a few calimas but in the main it was sunny.

On the whole the month passed with only a few problems compared to previous peak times and the many owners and their friends that were here seemed to enjoy it.

There is now some good news on the horizon as regards the pool bar, it has now been let and the new tenant hopes to open at the beginning of November barring any hitches. I will give you more information as I receive it.

We have always had complaints about dogs in lifts as regard to the smell, and dogs urinating in the lifts. In August we had another incident of a dog fouling in the lift.                                                                                                                                                         The decision was taken to put no dogs signs in the lifts, as expected there were two different reactions, the majority were pleased, some were not.                                                                                                                                                                                   There are good dog owners on the complex and most of the problems come from tenants with dogs rather than owners. It is hoped that when future tennants see these signs they will decide not to move to the Heights with their dogs.                                   It is at this point I ask yet again if you rent your apartment long term please have a no pets clause in the contract. The signs were immeadiately covered with alternative signs by some small minded person but we removed them.

We have a few apartments that are growing their own cannabis plants, which has resulted in a lot of complaints. Over the last 3 months we have had a lot of complaints about one apartment in particular on D3 and we have been in touch on numerous occasions with the owner, as they have not responded too us we do not know what, if any action is being taken with the tennant. We have now informed him that we will denounce him and his tennant if action isn´t taken as the smell from the plants is extremely offensive to the surrounding apartments.

In August there was a situation with somebody becoming very aggressive towards our night guard, this has happened before with the same person (who is not an owner) and again I complained to the owner of the apartment he was staying in, and explained again that these type of people are not welcome on our complex.                                                                                             Owners or people acting as  agents for owners are responsible for the behavhiour of people using their apartments, and if somebody has been a problem they should not be able to return to cause more problems in the future.
