Owner's Response: It has always been our aim to provide our guests with clean, comfortable accommodation. Too make them feel welcome from the moment they arrive. Even down to having something to eat and drink, in case they are hungry after there long journey. I must say I was very upset to receive this 2 star review but every body is an individual and this sort of rural retreat does not always suit everybody, With the 51 reviews on Trip Advisor and our second trip advisor 5 star award of excellence 2017 for this year. I never had a complaint that it was dark or cramped so I am addressing these comments and seeing what I can do to improve things. It was also October with the darker nights drawing in. So very different from the summer months, even though we were blessed with exceptional weather for this time of year. Regarding our unfinished building, it was unfortunate that due to illness it could not be completed before the 2017 season began. We have had a very busy season with many guests coming to stay and no one mentioned this. La Casita Bonita is surrounded by beautiful scenery and mountains, with various areas where you can relax. I think from what guests said this was there main focus and how peaceful it was. Rest assured the building is now finished:) We cant wait to welcome new guests next year and show off all our improvements. Thank you for your review I will certainly be looking into the comments that have been made.

Great little oasis

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casita Bonita. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is even outdoor barbecue. Many places to sit and enjoy the wonderful views of the mountain and countryside. Pool is very refreshing. The hosts were very attentive and helpful. We enjoyed a three course dinner in prepared by Heli. Paella was superb. Hope we can return in the future.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you arrive at this amazing place you can feel your shoulders relaxing and your breathing deepening. The scenery from the Casita is absolutely stunning and you can spend all your time here just sitting round the pool and taking it all in. I also loved sitting out at night, just reading a book. Garry and Heli are amazing hosts - there if you need them but giving you plenty of space. Heli is also a wonderful massuese - you must book in with her for at least one massage!! And how perfect, having a massage in these surroundings then wandering lazily back the few steps to your lovely holiday home. Should you want a bit more action the bars, restaurants and beaches of Marbella are only a 20 minute drive away. I didn't bother - just allowed myself to completely unwind and recharged my batteries. I would recommend this to anybody and I will definitely be back

A beautiful location. The Casita was as advertised. Clean with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience we had staying in this property was one of calm and relaxation.

Everything was perfect.

The Casita was comfortable and has everything we needed.

The out door space was amazing, there were several to choose from.

What I liked was thought had been given to putting cushions & covers on chairs & lounger.

I especially liked the day bed in the private garden:)

Séjour typique

  • 4 of 5

Pour ceux qui aiment le dépaysement total, la vie dans un cadre naturel et un peu rustique, endroit agréable pour se détendre sans avoir besoin d'un super grand confort, besoin d'un moyen de locomotion et d'une mobilité sans problème. Les hôtes sont super accueillants, se plient en quatre pour vous satisfaire, ne parlent qu'espagnol et anglais.

Gezellige, goed ingerichte cottage met mooie tuin, prachtig uitzicht en zeer gastvrije eigenaren

  • 5 of 5

We werden s'avonds om 23.30 uur (3 uur vertraging) zeer gastvrij ontvangen door Heli (eigenaresse). De cottage was lekker warm, de tafel sfeervol gedekt en na een gekoeld drankje werd het vooraf bestelde eten op een gezellige manier opgediend. Een warme ontvangst. Dat was wat we nodig hadden na een vervelende vlucht en autorit in het donker en regen, terwijl we de weg niet konden vinden. Heli haalde ons in Monda op en loodste ons naar de cottage.

We hebben 14 dagen enorm genoten van de gastvrijheid, prachtig bloeiende tuin, mooi uitzicht op dal en bergen en schitterende omgeving. Veel adviezen van de eigenaresse opgevolgd. Mooie, gezellige dorpen/steden bezocht en genoten van prachtige natuur.

Je privacy was goed gewaarborgd. Contact met eigenaresse verliep via app. en dat verliep perfect.

Het is zeer de moeite waard om ontbijt en/of diner te bestellen. Wij hebben smaakvol genoten van de 3 maaltijden en 1 ontbijt wat Heli verzorgde. Aanraders zijn zeker lasagna, paella en lam uit de oven. Overigens is een diner in het kasteel in Monda aan te bevelen (Nederlandse eigenaren).

Bij het uitzoeken van activiteiten kun je altijd terugvallen op de eigenaren die kundig advies uitbrengen.

Dit adres is een aanrader voor mensen die van rust houden, van hun privacy genieten en natuur en cultuur. Wij hadden het geluk om te kunnen genieten van de Semanta Santa week (van palm zondag t/m pasen). Mooie optocht op goede vrijdag in Monda.

Heli en Garry bedankt.

Vriendelijke groet,

Took en Sjef
