Please note that there is building work on a house in the community of houses further up the road from our house. It is close to completion (+/- 3 months, December 2014). For complete transparency, we would like to advise you as it 'may' have an impact on your holiday & our prices are reflected accordingly just in case. We would like you to be aware of this in advance & for you to make an informed decision as to your personal requirements. We cannot tell what may happen next so please be aware of this. We can only be responsible for the house that you rent and not any issues in the neighbourhood.
A cat also likes to visit the property. We call her Duffy! She is not owned by anyone but seems to have become part of the ambiance of our house & we, as do our guests, find her to be very sweet & quite a pleasure to have around the place. She makes it feel quite homely! We ask that she does not come into the house for obvious reasons. Should you dislike cats, maybe this is not the house for you!
Extra Information: Should you require more information please feel free to email and we will endeavour to get back to you as quickly as we can!
We are happy to answer any of your queries.

Couple with a sweet little boy and an equally wonderful cat called Bob - we rescued him one day from the mountain close to the house. We love to travel and discover new things & places. Enjoy nice simple things and a carefree day. Fell in love with Sóller many years ago...
Owner purchased this house in 2005
Why Owner chose Soller Center
We fell in love with this property and the land that surrounds it many years ago during our walks through Sóller and up the mountains. By chance, we met an elderly couple who were moving back home and they shared their love of Sóller and this particular stretch of mountain and we too fell in love with it! There is something very special about the place - for us, we can enjoy the wonder and beauty of the views, scenery and ever changing light (experience for yourself how the vista changes throughout the day) yet be so close to the town and Port. Everything we could want and more. We hope you too one day can share our bliss!
What makes this house unique
Peaceful setting but still in a local Spanish speaking community with normal life going on around you while you can just sit still!
Amazing views of the mountain and Sóller town and the villages in the distance (Fornalutx, Biniaraix etc.)
Your very own private salt water pool. Perfect.... no rush for the perfect poolside spot!
The light that falls on the property and across the mountains that almost wrap themselves around you!
As for the property - not having to compromise on lovely home comforts! Having what you need, when you need it - the casita is so well equipped.
So many places to sit down around the casita to enjoy good food made in a lovely kitchen or at the gas BBQ up on deck.
Not having to miss out on TV in your language in case there's something special on you don't want to miss. Having the OFF button too as there's a great library of books to enjoy.
Showering in lovely mountain water that is replenished every Friday morning.
Not having to worry about where to park the car or finding a space in the car park when they are few & far between or loading money into the meter.
Not having WI-FI (if you really need it, please ask!) so you can just relax & not feel bound to check on that last email!
2 beautiful grey cats, Luna and her shy sister (they are not owned by us) who stop by for a bite to eat when they can persuade you! Love or hate cats, they love our guests & Casita Tranquilidad - cats are very choosy. Duffy the cat is another new addition...
Returning guests receive a 5% discount for their loyalty or for new guests staying on their recommendation - just let us know.
I could go on why this place is simply great - but better still, why don't you discover these things and more for yourself. Casita Tranqulidad is our little gem & our guests best kept secret as they simply don't want to share the news of this particular find & have nowhere to stay year after year!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for all the lovely things you made for us.
Since the first time the gate opened and we saw the casita, we feel at home. It is fantastic here and we love the view.
So we did nearly 100 photographs from Soller and the hills around.
This place was perfect for us to start to explore Mallorca for the first time. We are sure we will come back to Mallorca and hope to stay at your home for a second time.
