Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have been closed since March 14th & as we live on-site we were able to travel the short 2 mins to Cuevas Helena initially we planned on staying the weekend but we ended up staying for 2 weeks which we have to say we really enjoyed our stay.

We were able to see through our guest’s eyes some things that we needed to improve to give our guests a better experience whilst staying at Cuevas Helena.

We list our Cave House with Host Unusual they saw our Facebook Post & they contacted us to let them know how we enjoyed our stay, which lead them to do an article on several other hospitality owners who list their property with them and were able to experience a stay at their own properties.

The setting
Surrounded by Andalusia’s magnificent rolling hills and mountains, Cuevas Helena is a unique, ancient-yet-modern cave house, with its high-ceilinged rooms beautifully carved into the cave itself.

Featuring a glistening pool and a hot tub, the retreat was featured on the Channel Five show ‘Our Dream Hotel’, on which Shirley and Mark’s Spanish vision was recorded by the renowned hotelier Alex Polizzi herself.

How was the stay?

Reporting that they’d been extremely well looked after (a chilled bottle of Cava was provided for their arrival…what a lovely surprise!), Shirley and Mark also took the opportunity to refresh their beloved cave house for future guests, carefully repainting the furniture, and even washing all the lampshade & tassels.
