This is my first post so I hope I am not inadvertently breaking any forum rules or etiquette. My wife and I would like to rent a two bedroom house or apartment just outside of Malaga by the water for the winter. Some questions are: 1) Do owners rent by the month or do you have to commit to a certain number of months? 2) Is the first month often considered your deposit? 3) What about extras like Internet, electricity and gas and or electricty, local taxes - are they included and if not what percentage of rent do they usually amount to? 4) Is transportation to Malaga easy and regular from villages like Rincon de la Victoria or Churriana? We both want a safe and secure neighbourhood with Internet access and if possible accessible to Malaga without use of a car?
Thanks all .. please tell me where to redirect these questions if I am in wrong place.
