“An Oasis of Calm”
Reviewed 24 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We stayed here for 10 weeks. Magical, relaxed, an oasis of peace and calm. Views and walks out of this world. Great accommodation and good access to Malaga, MarBella and beyond. Hosts Heli and Gary are great. So helpful. Always on hand but never intrusive. Fully recommend. Sue and Rob Wakefield

“An oasis of tranquility without isolation - perfect for recharging the batteries!”
Reviewed 6 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is my second stay at Monda Mountain Retreats and when I'm halfway there I can feel my shoulders relaxing and my breathing becoming deeper. The scenery is breath taking and Heli & Garry have provided the perfect accommodation. The Casita provides peace and tranquillity without feeling isolated and Heli has provided everything you could need during your stay - you really only need take yourself and your clothes!!
Heli is an amazing holistic beauty therapist - you must try at least one treatment during your stay.
I highly recommend this accommodation!!!!

“Beautiful, relaxing holiday ”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just got back from a 6 day holiday staying at the Cosita Bonita (beautiful log cabbin), and can honestly say it has been the most relaxing, lovely holiday we have had. The cabbin is beautiful and well equipped, views are absolutely spectacular, and the total peace and quiet is completely relaxing. I think, however, what makes this holiday so wonderful is Garry and Heli, their hospitality was more than we ever could have imagined, are so friendly and really will go out of their way to help in any way they can. I can definitely recommend having a spa treatment with Heli!! Playing with Busca and Lisa the dogs and Bella the cat also made a lovely addition to the holiday. A hire car is definetely recommended, the nearest beach is a 15/20 min drive and there are lots of bars/resteraunts locally (in Monda and Coin, 5min drive). A wonderful, relaxing time away.

“It was everything we wished for”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our third tstay here was not a disappointment. The weather was super and we made good use of the pool. Heli's spa treatments were brilliant, as always, and she gave us a paella cooking master class as we love the stuff so much! Heli and Garry are great hosts, keen to make your stay as pleasant as possible, and we returned to see them as much as to enjoy the surroundings! Would highly recommend.

“The most beautiful, romantic and relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

This is by far the most beautiful and relaxing holiday we have been on. We stayed for 8 nights and were greeted with a bottle of bubbly as well as a selection of meats and cheese. Heli and Garry were so welcoming, we ended up getting lost on our route up to the cabin as it was pitch black and we took a wrong turn, we rang Heli and she came out in her car to find us and guide us to where we were staying which was so lovely of her as it was late! Busca the dog and Bella the cat are incredibly cute and friendly and make you feel like part of the family. I can't praise them both enough, they are the perfect hosts; there if and when you need them, but will also not intrude in your personal time and space. If you need ANYTHING they will really do everything they can to provide it for you.

As for the log cabin, it is so beautiful, it really takes you out of reality and into a perfect little world of your own, the view from the bedroom window is incredible; we loved waking up and opening the window to look out onto beautiful scenery. There are tables to have breakfast outside - which we did everyday it was so lovely to be outside :) We loved sitting on the comfy seats at night, having a drink and enjoying the peace and quiet. The pool is also such a great touch to the place as it is needed when the sun gets a bit too much and you want to cool down.

We would recommend having a hire car and going out to the different towns and having an explore! Our favourite place to visit was Mijas, there are donkey rides, horse and carts, little shops, restaurants and a lot of different views to look at. We also went on a horse trek at the Andalucían Horse Riding Adventure for an hour which was amazing, the views and experience were just incredible - its definitely a must if you love horses or if you fancy a new adventure!

This is such an incredible place to stay - you'd be crazy not to stay here. Honestly when I read the reviews before coming here I thought to myself 'how is anywhere that good? Surely there must be something not quite right?' But it is as wonderful as everyone says it is!

Thank you so much Garry and Heli for having us to stay, we will definitely be back (I don't know how anywhere else is going to live up to this holiday)!
