About Kath Endersby

The property is jointly owned by friends Kath & Mark, Jo & Will. We all became great friends after spending a month sharing a house in Goa, India in 1996. We have all remained the greatest of friends and shared lots of travels and fun times since. In 2004 we had this mad idea that we’d build a house in Spain.

We ended up buying this beautiful plot of land and then spent a couple of years camping and sleeping in our hammocks on the land whilst we watched our jointly designed house slowly being built and coming to life.

Why Kath Endersby chose Sierra Nevada Area

We ended up buying this beautiful plot of land and building a house! We all spent a couple of years camping and sleeping in our hammocks on the land whilst we watched our jointly designed house slowly being built and coming to life.

What makes this villa unique

We all absolutely love spending time at Casa Mojo and now enjoy lots of family trips sleeping in luxury, enjoying the amazing pool and the tranquility and beauty of the location. We all hope you will enjoy your time at Casa Mojo as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! No complaints! The house was great and everything was setup nicely. The kids loved the pool, we enjoyed the weather and the local establishments. It was very convenient located and the books and brochures in the house were very helpful. 5 stars!! Andrew Casper - June 2012.



Casa Mojo was absolutely lovely, you have a lovely villa in a beautiful place.

We had a fabulous week, I am sure we would love to visit again sometime. Brian McKee - July 2012



The house was idyllic and we had a fabulous time. Julie Holland - July 2012



We had a brilliant time at Casa Mojo. We really enjoyed the walks – GR7 from Pampaneiro to Canar, GR142 Lanjaron to Orgiva and the round town route.

Never had such a well fitted out kitchen area in a rental before – very much appreciated.Having your own almonds and olive oil is very cool!

Have raved about the property to loads of friends – I hope extra business comes your way from that. Alan & Margaret Russell - October 2012

Perfectly Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mojo is situated on property that includes olive, orange, lemon and almond trees. The views of the valley are incredible. The floor plan is very large so we had plenty of room to relax. We enjoyed eating our meals outside and cooked most of the time at home.

Both Lanjoran and Orgiva are fun to stroll around. We did some bicycle riding but the options are somewhat limited and the area is all about hills.

Overall a very nice place to stay and we would recommend it.

House is just like in pictures.Very clean and the surroundings are beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely time at "Casa Mojo" with my husband. House was well equipped and clean. Garden was beautiful and we had quite a few walks there. Spectacular scenery.

It was otherwise very peaceful but the only minus was the neighbourhood dogs that we're barking quite a bit.

The location of the house is just perfect. Orgiva and Lanjaron were both very close. We recommend visiting Lanjaron and there you should

go to the "Balneario de Lanjaron- spa" and the garden "Parque Salao". Lanjaron also has nice restaurants,Orgivas Teteria Baraka has very tasty food too!Also the closest restaurant to the house Venta El Buñuelo has great service and tasty food,and nice views too!

I would recommend this place to everyone. Very good service from the owners and everything went smoothly.

Casa Mojo.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and myself booked Casa Mojo as a base to climb and canyon in Sierra Nevada. I loved the casa that much I booked to return in June, 2017. A lovely welcome pack, food and wine. The cupboards stacked with herbs and spices, great as I love cooking!

The pool was so enticing after a climb on the limestone cliffs. The gardens are a pleasure, fruit and nuts to pick, obviously dependant on the time of year but we landed lucky. Excellent place and the owners are fantastically helpful. Try it!

Idyllic hideaway in the Annapurnas

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday at Casa Mojo in June.

The villa is beautiful, very well equipped & maintained.

We loved exploring the surrounding areas & found some stunning villages with breathtaking views.

Our 6 year old daughter spent many an hour in the lovely pool, we picked lemons from the trees, searched for local wildlife & enjoyed evenings sat chilling on the terrace with a glass or two of rioja.

We had a lovely, relaxing holiday & would definitely go back. Casa Mojo is a hidden gem.

Thank you x

Owner's Response: Hi Lynsey, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I'm so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Casa Mojo and had lots of fun in the pool. I'm happy to hear that you managed to enjoy time relaxing on the terrace with some local wine, found fresh lemons to pick from the trees and enjoyed hunting for wildlife. Did you spot the family of wild boars? Hopefully one day in the future we can welcome you all back. Best wishes Kath, Mark, Jo & Will x

Falling in love for the second time!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay @ Casa Mojo has been such a treat! It has only proven to us that we were so right to fall in love with the area- the mountains, the food, beautiful Lanjaron with its Barrio Hondillo and numerous water fountains, and obviously the house itself. This time around we came at the end of August- best time for picking figs and almonds straight from the trees (fresh figs+smelly cheese=heaven). Air was so full of wonderful, sweet aroma, the weather was fab-the pool provided a very welcome escape from the heat. Customer service that the owners provide is second to none! We loved every minute of our stay (yet again) and we will be back-for sure!

Owner's Response: Many many thanks for your lovely review Edyta. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your second stay at Casa Mojo and once again enjoyed the beauty of Lanjaron and the surrounding area. Late August and early September is also my favourite time to be at Casa Mojo with the abundant figs, almonds, the warm water of the pool and the sweet smells of the Spanish countryside. Thank-you for being such fantastic guests you will be forever welcome! All our best wishes Kath, Mark, Jo & Will x (Thank you for your compliment about our customer service, sorry I haven't responded to your review earlier. I thought I'd submitted it but it had failed to post!)

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mojo was a peaceful retreat for myself, my husband and two teenagers, especially following GCSE exams. The layout of the villa is perfect, and cleverly designed, especially the lounge kitchen/diner which has a view from every aspect. Cash Mojo is modern, clean, and has a great kitchen with every conceivable utensil. We even had fun making cappuccinos with the small milk whisk! Communication with the owners was faultless, fantastic customer service, which was really appreciated. Robin, the gardener, was also a font of knowledge, recommending lots of things to do. The local town of Lanjaron became a real favourite place to spend our evenings, very "Spanish", great places to eat, and the Lanjaron Spring Water tasted great (maybe more so because it was free, and straight from the mountains!). We never tired of the mountain views, conscious that we had to leave it behind eventually! Thank you for a great experience.

Owner's Response: Ruth Thank you so much for such a lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed relaxing after the stress of exams. I'm thrilled you enjoyed the views from all angles in the living area. Our builder thought we were mad wanting so many but we couldn't choose where to put the windows, so we chose to put them everywhere. Thanks for your compliments regarding customer service and the plethora of kitchen utensils! Many thanks for being such wonderful guests. We all hope you come back some time in future. Kindest regards Kath, Mark, Jo & WIll x
