Sitting by the pool, enjoying the sun and the incredible 5-mile view in both directions, I could not believe it was all real and mine to enjoy. What a glorous place in the sun for a vacation. The house itself is lovely. We enjoyed cooking in the generous and well equipped kitchen and grilling outside. Even though I am a die hard tourist, I found the allure of Nomad's Retreat irresistible and spent much of the week revelling in its unique joys.
Kate and Stephen are generous, caring hosts. They answered our questions and are a joy to have around. We parted as friends and I really hope to spend time with them in the future. Hey Kate, join me in Miami some time at my place at the Shelborne!!
And to top it all off there is the 46' yacht, The Optimist. What a fabulous boat and what a great afternoon we had on it. She was masterfully handled by Stephen, a Captain I would willingly set out to sea with. Kate provided a lovely repast and there were drinks aplenty.
At the week's end I really did not want to leave and return to reality. What a sweet, sweet retreat.
What kind and lovely words all the way from the USA ... we feel very honoured to meet such wonderful people from all parts of the World. It is so important to us here at Nomad's Retreat that our standards are high and our guests can relax and enjoy themselves. When we receive such lovely reviews, we know we have achieved our goal. So thank you Susan and Oliver, Dale and Jerry, Diane & Clem ... we also hope to visit you in Florida soon.
Kate is awesome. She’s such good people. Her house was immaculate and had a great vibe. We had two families with two toddlers and she made sure we had cribs and high chairs.
I’ve used a ton of Homeaway and Airbnb rentals and Kate is the reason why those services exist. What you see in the photos is exactly what you get. She has countless reviews that are all positive.
I highly recommend The Nomad Retreat!
You’re one in a million yourself Scott ! .. thank you so much for your kind words. It’s important to me that my guests feel the tranquility & peace they need to reshresh the soul ❤️
From the moment we arrived, we thought we had died and were in "heaven", the villa Nomads Retreat, the gardens, the fabulous pool was ALL incredible, The villa is much more spacious than the photos show plus the pool too is generous in size. Kate made us feel very special always making sure everything was as good as it could possibly be. She even pulled a few strings as we especially wanted a week that had been booked by another client, due to my 60th birthday and my son's 30th birthday. - absolute STAR of a lady. We had more fun than I ever thought possible. A VERY BIG THANK YOU to Kate for making our dream come true.
Teresa and John

Great villa and great hostess
Arrival date 18/07/2015 2 week stay
We enjoyed everything about the villa and the view from the pool is just stunning. The girls enjoyed their early morning yoga and pilates sessions by the pool.
Kate was the perfect hostess and could not do enough to make our stay perfect, with advise on places to vist, local shops and all the other things only a local would know about.
Highlights of the trip were Granada, local tapas down on the local beach, picking fresh lemons of the trees for a G&T, water fights with the kids around the pool and the local water falls and lagoons, really is a must for the young at heart. Who's brave enough to do the 35 foot jump into the lagoon? And not to forget a BBQ and a few drinks on the veranda over looking pool and the Med.:)
I loved my stay here and Kate, I look forward to another visit some time soon.
all the best
Thank you so much Tony !! Your heart is as big as you are ( & thats big for all of you reading!) Wow !! Did you do that jump at the waterfall ? I have to say .. I am the lucky one here, meeting such a happy fun family... Not forgetting lovely Helen, Claire & Tim. Thanks for coming and enjoying life to the full. For sure we will meet again guys .. how can I ever forget you all.x.
A fabulous week
Just wanted to say a big thank you for last week. Nomad’s is just the perfect place. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and left on Saturday refreshed and invigorated. And are still feeling buzzy despite EasyJet!
You have a wonderful place there, you’ve made it a real home and made us feel really welcome. Thank you. The girls just adored their cave room so thank you for making it special for them. For me I loved the quiet mornings, to make a coffee and chat to Jo on the little veranda outside of the kitchen. We watched the doves doing their mad circling and all landing one by one on the telegraph wires in the next field, wobbling a bit, but not falling off. We also did spy the eagle, but luckily not at the same time as the doves. The gardens and flowers around the villa are just glorious. You’ve put in an enormous amount of work into the place and it is really paying off. But you were right. A week wasn’t sufficiently long enough.
Wish you and your family well Kate. Hope to visit again.
Melanie, Jo & girls,
Thank you for coming to visit nomad ... I will miss my cabbage soup girls!! After that long hike ... I bet the eagle was looking down on you skinny mini´s ... licking his lips!.
