About Susanne Platt
Susanne and Malcolm have lived in Spain for 30 yrs - met over here and been married for 29 yrs. We were both tour guides so know what holiday vacations are all about and do our best to ensure that all our guests have a wonderful time. Sue then worked for a rental property management company then got back into horses and opened an equestrian centre here in Monda.
Susanne Platt purchased this Villa in 1991
Why Susanne Platt chose Monda
We had lived in Marbella for 14 yrs but with all the building there was no longer anywhere to ride our horses. Some friends had bought a house in the village of Monda so we came to have a look and fell in love with this quaint village, the friendly locals and the stunning scenery. So we bought an olive grove and bit by bit built our dream home. Now with the new road from Marbella to Monda its only a 15 minute drive to the coast so we have the best of both worlds.
What makes this Villa unique
If you just want to chill out then this is the perfect place to do it. We have had the odd guest who went to the hipermarket the first day and then never left the pool for the remainder of their stay! But if you are adventurous and like walking, horseriding, sightseeing then you have it all here.

The house is absolutely fantastic.
We absolutely loved our stay. The house is fantastic and the kids loved the pool. Sue and Malcolm are brilliant hosts and made the holiday all the more special. We are already hoping to go back there soon.
Great stay at the Villa with lots of room for us all!
Huge villa that had loads of space. Air conditioning in the bedrooms which meant no problems sleeping at night. Fabulous welcome pack that fed us for days. Pool was fab as were views and Susanne was very welcoming. Villa is a bit off the beaten track so if you are looking to be within walking distance of local amenities then this is not the place for you. Other issue was the hornets round the pool at the entrance, that was a bit off putting - we just avoided that area of the pool. Other than that - clean, large welcoming villa that gave us 2 weeks of lasting memories.
