Its relatively pointless looking online for places over here, the best
thing to do is come and get in contact with some agencies and check
the local papers. I'm living in Spain myself and the rent is typically
around 600-700 euro a month for a 3 bedroom apartment. I had the help
of a spanish speaking resident for that, making arrangements with the
spanish agency, which is usually necessary over there. If you're lucky
and a company brings you over here they can make it very easy, ie.
giving you time in a hotel to find your feet on them and/or loans
to get started.

I'm about a 15 minute walk from the border, Gib and the Spanish town
La Linea are the same metropolitan area, seperated by the border.
Theres no hassle on the border really, its very rare that I even have
to open my passport when going through.

Not a lot of employers over here is the only thing, as far as I know
the place im working for is hiring more than anyone else. There are a
lot of e-gaming companies here though so you never know. Only one that
comes to mind is cassava.net, but I know there are more.
Only URLs I can give offhand are:
http://www.brayproperties.com - they dont seem to mention doing rentals
but a colleague got a place to rent through them here in Gib.
These sites may be out of date though so you may want to call them.
