“A relaxing retreat into a cave”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cave. It gives a cool (literally) alternative to staying in standard hotels or apartments. There's no TV or radio but that just adds to the rustic charm, helping us to focus on more important things like relaxing, cooking and talking to each other! The Wifi works on the terrace if you need it.
The location is perfect. There are nice views of the surrounding hills, it's within 5 mins walk of the town's shops, bars, restaurants and Monachil is a great base for going walking in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Katherine, the owner, speaks perfect English and is friendly, helpful and lives next door if you need anything.

“What a cool place to stay”
Reviewed June 14, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed here for three days in May 2012 & found it to be the "coolest" place we have ever stayed. We travel a couple months every year & have never stayed in a cave till now. The place is located 3 miles from all the sights of Granada in a small village with lots of character & some goods places to eat. "Small town Spain" is a treat everyone should experience & this place fits the bill. Kathy was a great host & proud of the places she rents.
They really are caves, "in the ground", but very roomy with everything a person needs to be comfortable. Kathy is a gem & her english is very good. We really enjoyed our stay & recommend it to all. "Kathy's Caves" were the highlite of our month in Spain!
