Why Heli chose Monda

Well! we have just been awarded the 2014 award for excellence. When you book I can give you the details. I am blown away by this,so we must be doing something right!

What makes this villa unique

We live on site so we are here to cater for our guest and also having trained as a massage & beauty therapist guest can be pampered to there hearts desires or left alone in complete 'Rural Retreat' privacy.

Peace & relaxation or if you would like to go to the beach for the day or sightseeing nothing is to far away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in July 2014 A truly beautiful holiday filled with amazing memories of stunning surroundings. Enhanced by the nature of the hosts, Garry and Helin. We stayed here for a month and became totally mesmorised by the moutainous beauty that surrounded us. The cabin we stayed in was extremely comfortable and offered us many home comforts. This place was completely adverse to our life in London. Peace and tranquility were so easy to come by and at the same time we still managed to get out and about and see lots of very traditional Spanish towns/restaurants/pubs etc. The cabin itself is set in the mountains and the closest town is Monda (2km away). A quaint little whitewashed town that offers you a very traditional Spanish way of life. I loved it. A final word on the host, Garry and Heli. They made our stay so lovely. They looked after us and made sure we felt happy in the little cabin

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband had booked this cabin for our honeymoon. The details of the cabin, and the facilities were exact. Before we arrived, we had plans to do as many, adrenaline seeking, activities as we possibly could, horse riding, quad biking, snorkelling. With in an hour of being around Heli and Garry, they unintentionally, made me realise I wanted this time, here, to let go! This place is the place to visit to re wind. You have the peace and tranquillity of nature’s beauty, in every direction you look. The natural winding, curves and inclines, of the roads climbing into the mountains. The freedom of the olive trees. The silence. Other than nature. The silence was such a beautiful sound. We did not hire a car. Heli kindly offered to chauffeur us to and from the airport, and add in a supermarket trip. For a fixed price. Which was a very reasonable price, I must add. On arrival, Heli had prepared some light snack, on a platter. We did not arrive until very late. However, because of this, Heli had already taken the time to collect a few essential groceries for us. To get us through until we could be chauffeured to a supermarket. The cabin has everything you need and because of Heli's kind nature, if you need anything, that they haven't got, she will do her best to try and locate it for you, or at least give you directions to find it. The area outside is perfect for relaxing. An outside bed to have a siesta on. Sun loungers to catch the sun, the Jacuzzi to rewind, a BBQ to cook your evening tea and a little bench swing, to sit on and watch the mountains of Monda. Heli also offers spa treatments, at a great price.....I asked Heli to give me an Indian Head Massage. On the far wall in the spa, centre breast, is a Huge, hand painted, mountain scene with a lake. The detail is phenomenal. It is that good; you almost want to touch the grass on the hills. Heli worked my head. Although I cannot say exactly what she was doing, but within minutes, she had put me into a trance. I could smell freshness. I could hear the trees gently swaying. I could hear the steady calm breath of Heli, behind me, pushing her calming and loving energy into my head, through her fingers. My body was weak, but I was strong. My mind was closed, but I was grounded. A retreat is what these amazing people offer. A retreat is what you will get. Our Honeymoon will always be close to our hearts. Thank you Heli & Garry. For the time we shared.

Hola de nuevo, Helli, Garry

Estuvimos realmente encantados de ser vuestros huéspedes por 17 días, a pesar del bochorno pasado los primeros días por una ola de calor inusual aunque las noches siempre fueron frescas (dormíamos tapados con mantas) que te permetían descansar, y vuestros esfuerzos por mejorar la estancia (compraron un ventilador de forma inmediata a parte del refrigerador que había).

Los niños estuvieron tan relajados que no echaron en falta "la maldita televisión", optaron por otras actividades como pintar piedras, paseos, jugar al dominó...

La cabaña y sus rincones eran fantásticos siempre que no busques el lujo, cabaña de madera donde no faltaba detalle, cocina suficiente y bien equipada, barbacoa en el exterior donde preparábamos cenas de carne o pescado en familia y a la luz de la luna ...

La ubicación muy cómoda para visitar los lugares recomendados, Marbella, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Gibraltar, Málaga....para después retirarte del ajetreo de las zonas turísticas.

Cuidaron de nuestra mascota como la suya propia (recuerdos de Rowley).

No tenemos ninguna queja , al contrario, sólo palabras amables para gente amable como vosotros.

Esperamos que seáis siempre felices como nosotros lo fuimos allí este verano.

Besos de todos para los dos.

Ahhh, y Helli hace unos masajes realmente increíbles.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to host this wonderful family. To see them all enjoying La Cabana and the outside space was wonderful. Although the children had wifi every time I saw them they were outside in the pool or being artistic painting stones. Maria, I am so pleased you liked your massage, I also think the Jacuzzi helped relax your muscles. Yes! we even offered dog sitting on this occasion because the beaches on the Costas only allow dogs certain times of the year. Rowley certainly did become one of the family. Thank you for your review and please come back and see us soon:)
