“Amazing, beautiful property with the most incredible views”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

Our family of four plus 2 members of our extended family stayed for a week in August 2016. We had the most wonderful holiday staying at this property. The pool was the biggest private pool we've ever had on holiday and it was only steps to what seemed like our own private cove in the Mediterranean (bring some snorkels/fins for swimming and sturdy shoes for walking on the rocks). The home is spacious and light and exactly as described. Big fluffy beach towels were provided as we requested and the fridge was stocked with a few complimentary items to get us started for the week. There was a brick oven in the wall by the pool where we did some great barbecuing. The rooftop porch was great for watching sunsets and sunrises. Within a short walk from the house was a supermarket, a little souvenir shop, and a small eatery. Just beyond was a sandy beach and several restaurants. The location was perfect-- we enjoyed peace and privacy but everything we needed was actually very close. The owners live next door and were very cordial. They kindly brought us a melon from their garden. Our only irritation during the week were the tiny, harmless ants. We swept often as advised but they were constantly a nuisance, crawling all over everything. That being said, you have to keep in mind that Menorca is very environmentally conscious so maybe there is nothing that can be done. On the whole, Menorca is an incredible, upscale island-- clean, well taken care of, luxurious but it has a laid-back, relaxed feel at the same time. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend the property to anyone!

“Beautiful property in a fantastic location.”

This is a perfectly-situated villa. Well enough off the beaten track to allow it some privacy yet amenities are within walking distance.
We'd received advice to go to the supermarket near the airport to stock up before arriving but, to be honest, we ate out enough and the local supermarket (Spar) was well-equipped and reasonably priced enough, not to have bothered.
We did have a small problem with ants in the main bathroom but some bug spray took care of that.
Had it been available for the two weeks we need next year, we would have booked the same villa.

“Amazing villa by the sea - spectacular views”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I had an amazing week holiday away in June 2015 with my other half & 6 friends to celebrate my 40th birthday. We hardly left the villa as we had everything we needed, food & drink (big supermarket about 15 mins drive not far from airport - it's a 20 mins drive from airport to villa btw), music (we brought a small wifi speaker & connected our iPhones/iPads & had great party & chill out music inside & outside the villa for our fabulous parties). Wifi is available (white label by wifi in the newer kitchen has log on details).

I would thoroughly recommend this villa as it was perfect for me & my friends (8 of us). The weather was great some spent most of our time outside by the pool looking out at the amazing sea view. Here's a local beach nearby too but we preferred our privacy so didn't spend any time on the beach. Nice local bars, 2 small supermarkets, shops, fag shop (fag shop not open at lunchtimes as they like their siestas) at Arenel d'en Castell. We ate out once at a lovely local restaurant with beautiful views over the beach- sunsets amazing.

Mahon is only 15 mins drive away & there are plenty of bars but as we bought loads of booze (Lovely Cava £1.50 a bottle & beer ridiculously cheap too) & food (food so cheap too) in the big supermarket (Mercodona: http://www.mymenorca.info/menorca-supermarkets/) we ate in the villa loads & made fabulous salad, meat dishes & sat down at the big kitchen table every day to eat in the the newer villa as it has aircon & I really appreciated it as I'm not so good with the heat. Older villa no air con so check with your guests first who needs the aircon at night as it was a life saver for me. There's a nice cool breeze by the villa as its right by the sea which is nice so people who like are not good with heat will still get a nice breeze when needed.

Lots of divers walk by as there a very popular diving spot just past the villa. It's very sharp & rocky so bring trainers if you want to walk down to the sea by the villa (takes 5 mins). Absolutely stunning views. We spent days just chilling by pool, watching the waves & saying hi to the divers walking past. It's very private & tranquil though & we only had one set of neighbours so we partied at one end of the pool in the evening so as it to annoy the neighbours with our music.

The owner is really helpful too as I had a lot of questions for him beforehand & he emailed me back quickly with good information.

Recommend you hire beach towels from the house manager (bookable through the owner) as we found these invaluable as we were swimming every day in the very clean saltwater pool (no chlorine so great for people who have asthma like me - no wheezing!) - 8 euros per towel.

Only thing I'd say is there are no towel hooks in any day of the bathrooms or hooks on bedroom doors so wet towels were a pain as we had to keep leaving them outside to dry. Small thing but would be helpful if landlord rectified this. The bedrooms were nice & clean as were the living & kitchen areas.

Recommend you hire a car so you can get out & about easily & drive around the islands as such pretty views. Plus, upon arrival. go straight to supermarket near airport to stock up on food & drink.

I thoroughly recommend you hire out this villa - you won't be disappointed. But don't book out in mid June next year or the year after as i'll be booking it out!
