About the Owner

My name is Sandra. I am an artist and mother of two lovely girls. My husband is Thai masseur and lover of nature.

Some years ago my husband and me moved from Barcelona to inland Southern Spain to live in a natural environment. We have happily settled into the Southern and relaxed way of life.

We bought the land and built the house ourselves. We wanted to build a new house, vibrant and full of good energy. We wanted to create a home for our daughters, safe and fun. With swings for babies, children and adults. Structures to hanging and a large sandbox where kids have contact with the outdoor elements.

A shaded area with hammocks to relax and enjoy quiet talks.

Weekends we like to go for a walk together. Also go to the beach or the river, where I like to paint and girls play.

Everything we could have asked for

  • 5 of 5

Sandra & Juan have created a wonderful family home at Casa Mandala, furnished to a high standard and perfectly clean. Sandra even went to the trouble of leaving us a little welcome pack, and drove me around so I could get my bearings. Although they are next door if you should need them, you wouldn't realise. This place is perfectly secluded and private.

Our three children (3,6,11 yrs) never had a dull moment during our week here whether we spent the day lounging at the pool side or exploring Coin centre and the neighbouring towns. Dolphin and whale watching in Terifa is a 2 hr drive away (well worth it) and the beaches of Marbella are close enough to visit every day if you wanted! Thank you for an incredible stay - we'll tell all of our friends at home about beautiful Casa Mandala. The Davis Family.

Lovely villa and location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a six week stay at Casa Mandala and what a lovely time we had the villa was lovely and garden with pool was great😀

Sandra was amazing so helpful and friendly even got my Antihistamine Tablets from the Pharmacy! Gave us lots of ideas for where to go and instructions to get there.

The villa is located in a central position for beaches and resorts and Coin town only seven minutes away with lots of bars and restaurants.

Overall this was a great retreat and relaxing holiday with family and friends and would like to say highly recommended.

Thank you Sandra 😀😀

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and peaceful villa. We had a lovely time relaxing in the garden and taking dips in the pool. The owners were very helpful and nothing was to much to ask.

Inside the villa is very clean and spacious with everything you could need. I would definitely recommend a stay.

Fantastic villa, lovely owners, perfect family break.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a fantastic stay in this wonderful villa. Our party of 6 (including our 18 month old son) all had the best holiday, in a beautiful, peaceful environment but will all the amenities required.

We hired a car which i would advise as Marbella, Fuengirola and Torremolinos are all within a 20 minute drive. The local town of coin was a 5 minute drive away and featured many fantastic bars and restaurants as well as many super markets. There is a local shop and tapas bar only 5 minutes walk away from the villa. We visited the zoo in Fuengirola which was fantastic value for money and enjoyed by all.

Juan and Sandra were on hand at all times if we had any questions however they offer you complete privacy which is a perfect combination.

The villa was modern, clean and very comfortable and i miss reading in the hammocks dearly :( The outside garden was a sun trap and we spent many hours a day sunbathing, playing in the pool and letting our little boy play on the swings and sandpit.

We wouldn't fail to recommend here to anyone.

Fantastic week in a very child friendly villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time while staying at Casa Mandala. The villa was beautifully clean and tidy when we arrived, and equipped with all we could need- and more- during the week. It was very child friendly inside and out, and our 3 year old loved having lots of space to run around in the lovely gated garden. Swings with different sized seats for babies, children and adults were also a great touch, as were the toys provided for the house and garden.

There was plenty of space in the house and bedrooms for 4 adults, 1 child and a baby and lots of seating outside on the covered terrace too. When sitting outside, the garden has lovely views of the countryside and the mountains in the distance.

The owners, Sandra and Juan, were very helpful and made us feel so welcome. They went beyond our expectations and we felt very lucky to be guests in their property with the excellent service they provided.

We had a brilliant time and I would definitely consider returning to the villa if visiting this beautiful part of Spain again.

From the Owner

Malaga has the best weather in Europe. We moved from Barcelona looking for sun almost every day of the year. We moved form one big city to the countryside looking for more quality of life. Coin is close to beach, but with the benefits of the country: fantastic walking, beautiful rivers, natural environment, close to Natural Parks… It is a relaxed and quiet place but with everything you need nowadays to live comfortably and close to many amenities. Beach, Marbella and Malaga city is really close. Also airport is half hour from home. The property offers the perfect base for day trips to the Costa del Sol: Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella, Puerto Banus Also offers easy and fast routes to Ronda, Gibraltar, Sevilla, Granada, Córdoba and Cadiz.

From the Owner

For us it was important to respect ecological construction criteria and obtain a bioclimatic house: cold in summer and warm in winter. The wooden ceiling insulation carries a natural cork and self-ventilating roof tiles, which provide a temperature difference of 15 ° C with respect to the outside of the house. The walls are built with clay bricks 30 cm wide, which provides a powerful insulation. It is build for adults and children: many play areas, sandbox, relax areas, terraces, private pool… My husband also offers professional Thai massage and reflexology. I offer workshops with different technique: ceramics, glass jewellery, painting for children and adults. check availability
