Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Soller Center - Casita Tranquilidad

1 bedroom, 1 shower room, good sized lounge/kitchen - sleeps 2, lovely pool

This comfortable renovated 1 bedroom casita has everything a couple would need for the perfect getaway. The property enjoys a private swimming pool (open between June to September) on a terrace with spectacular and panoramic views of Soller. The air conditioned bedroom has a very comfortable new King sized bed (160x200) with allergy free bedding. It has picturesque views of the Tramuntana mountains. The kitchen is well equipped & modern (dishwasher, fan oven, microwave, Nespresso maker etc.) making it ideal should you want to eat at home either inside at the dining area, the patio outside the kitchen or al fresco by the pool! A charming stone terrace is located just outside the casita so you can enjoy breakfast in the bright morning sun (sun normally pops up around 9am in summer). There is a bright sitting room with a large & comfortable L shaped sofa & 40 inch LCD TV. It is equipped with a USB port should you want to bring some of your own movies. There is also a DVD player with a selection of DVD's to enjoy. There is hot & cold air conditioning in this open plan room too & a lovely wood burning stove for the cooler months. There is a washing machine room to the side of the house and ample space behind the house to dry clothes. The view from the property is very beautiful. An ideal location for those wanting to get away from it all. Perfect location between September through to Spring for walkers and cyclists. Many walks are even on your doorstep!

Swimming Pool (not shared): on the adjacent terrace to the property. It is located on a gated private terrace set in a beautiful location with stunning views of Soller. There is a lovely palm tree providing some shade to the pool area. The pool is a gradient pool with dimensions of 6 metres long and 3 metres wide with 3 large steps (not a ladder) allowing easy access.

There is a large sunbathing area with cushioned sun loungers to enjoy the views, peace and tranquility.

Pool opens for use June 1st but warm temperature cannot be guaranteed until later in the season. Pool closes mid October.

Please note that there is some building work on a house in the community of houses further up the road from our house. It is close to completion (+/-3 months). We are not aware of any issues or complaints from our guests, but for complete transparency, we would like to advise you as it may have an impact on your holiday. We would like you to be aware of this in advance & for you to make an informed decision as to your personal requirements.

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.

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.

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

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!

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!

PERFECT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Casita Tranquilidad for a week in June and have the most amazing time.
The service from Olwen with faultless right from the start, she was the most attentive and helpful person to deal with - sending us bus directions to the casita, giving us tips on the area, checking we were happy with our stay. Although we did not get to meet her we felt like we knew her! Mark and Jude were also great!
I had spent quite a while researching villas as we wanted somewhere secluded but we didn't want to rent a car so needed to be close to a town. This casita was perfect for that! Luckily Mark picked us up from the bottom of the hill so we didn't have to carry our cases up! But the walk to town was 10minutes max and although the hill is very steep it does not take long to walk up and is a good way to work off all the ice cream!
I could keep writing about how great our stay was forever so I will summarise the best points
- The views!! Absolutely amazing
- The cat - she was so sweet
- The oranges! The casita had a juicer and I definitely got my vitamin C intake for the year.
- Soller - a really lovely town
- The private pool - brilliant to jump into after a walk up the hill!
I highly recommend Casita Tranquilidad, we will definitely be returning.

ABSCHALTEN.

  • 5 out of 5
For the fellow Germans I'll post the review in German for a change.

Das "Casita Tranquilidad" ist ein hübsches Häuschen in oberhalb von Soller mit schönem Blick auf die Stadt, aber was erzähle ich, die Bilder sprechen für sich und es sieht tatsächlich auch genau so aus. Im Haus ist wirklich alles vorhanden was man für einen komfortablen Aufenthalt braucht (sogar eine Nespresso-Maschine und ein riesiger Gasgrill). Genug Privatsphäre hat man, das Anwesen ist von außen nicht wirklich einsehbar. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten erreicht man in 10 Minuten zu Fuß. Olwen, die Besitzerin, kümmert sich von der Buchung bis zum Auszug hervorragend um alle Belange. Wenn wir wieder nach Soller fahren, würden wir jederzeit wieder buchen. Vielen Dank Olwen... und Duffy :-)

CASITA TRANQUILIDAD - A HIDDEN GEM!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderfully relaxing 2 weeks at Casita Tranquilidad. Previous guests have commented on the road up to the casita but we had no problem once we got the hang of it. Olwen, the owner was most attentive in the few days before we went and just after we arrived to make sure all was well. Her instructions were very clear and helpful. However once we were there she realised that we were happy to be left to it and didn't intrude at all. The casita is fully equipped and spotless and the pool is a huge bonus. It is cleaned out once a week by Jude who is an absolute star! Every morning we had our breakfast on the patio by the front door looking at the sun rising over the mountains and at night barbecued by the pool in the moonlight. The views are breathtaking and it was just what we needed to recharge our batteries! You feel as if you are in the countryside but actually you are only a 15 minute stroll down the hill to Soller. The surrounding area has some great places to explore by car. We went to Puerto Pollenca and Alcudia in the north (best on Tuesday market day) and down to Port Andratx. We also got over to the East coast to the caves at Drach. The train from Soller to Palma is great fun - but check the return times as there is a gap from about 3.15 to 7.30. We got the bus back and then used the return portion of our tickets on another day. On our last day when we thought we had seen it all we drove to Sa Calobra which is a really fun drive and then you arrive at a lovely beach and cove and then if you keep walking it opens up into a gorge area which is just spectacular. So there is plenty to do but at the end of each day it was great to have such a lovely place to return to and jump in the pool to cool off. There are 2 or 3 cats who come to visit and we were enthralled by their antics and happy to see them. In summary this is a real home from home, a hidden gem and Olwen goes out of her way to ensure guests are comfortable and happy right from the moment you arrive and take the complementary bottle of Cava out of the ice bucket!

NICE HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Soller. There was loads to do, and the island is really accessible. The casita is in a fantastic location, just 10 minutes' walk from Soller. The driveway is a bit daunting the first time, but we had no problems getting a Seat Ibiza up and down the hill. The views are fantastic and the house is very well stocked with all the utensils you could need. There are some fantastic walks straight from the door, and many more just a short drive or bus ride away. We barely used the car because most of the places we wanted to visit were accessible by bus or were within walking distance. The highlight for us was getting the bus to the Cuber Reservoir (leaving from Soller at 9:10 and costing 2 euros 35 cents) and walking back via the Col De L'Ofre. A strenuous 3 hour walk but on very clear and well marked footpaths. And, thanks to the bus doing much of the climbing for you, you actually walk down further than you walk up.

CASA TRANQULIDAD - PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful casa, with a perfect location for both the view of the town , the mountains and the sunsets!
The accommodation was exactly as described and to be honest the photos do not prepare you for high-quality this house is.
Immacuately clean on our arrival and somehow even the pool managed to stay that way. The pool.... big enough to enjoy but small enough that the water temperature was like a warm bath.
Olwen, the owner, was extremely helpful both throughout the 'is this the right place for us' stage and answered all questions honestly and quickly and arranged an airport pick-up and more.
Neither, Lesley nor I drive, and this casa proved to be perfect. Far enough from the town to be truly tranquil yet close enough to walk, do the shopping, enjoy a menu dias and walk home, slighlty hot, to enjoy the pool.
I would, with the only reservation being that I want to be able to book it again!, wholeheartedly recommend this to friends family and anyone else who'll listen!

A POOL WITH A AMAZING VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
The Casita in Soller was a lovely experience. I can really recommend this spot. The house has everything you need. Nice living room, perfect kitchen, good bed, linnen, perfect bathroom, airconditioning, sofa, dinnertable (inside and outside) and so on....The pool has a great view and even a BBQ! Olwen is a great host and he responded very quick at questions all the time. The hill up to the house is quite steep but if you've done it once it's not that hard, but make sure your car as enough power as Olwen will tell you. We stayed a week and Soller is a perfect start to discover the rest of Mallorca. Last but not least, the two nice cats were very entertaining. Thanks for the nice stay, and we'll certainly return one day!

This beautiful casita is a perfect mix of country and town living. Located on the slopes of Soller valley enjoying panoramic views of the valley and the Tramuntana mountains, yet only 15 minutes walk to Soller town centre. We have a lovely pool on the adjacent recently planted wild orchard terrace making this casita very special. There is a large Gas BBQ there too. The casita is nestled amongst classic Mallorquin dry stoned terraces. A beautiful location.

Transport couldn't be easier - 10 minutes away you will find the historic (1912) Train of Soller bringing you from Palma city to Soller or there is a bus stop 5 minutes walk from the end of the road to Palma. There is also a quaint tram that brings you from Soller town to the Port of Soller for a day out at the beach. Ideal property for walkers too.

Other Activities: Private Swimming Pool

Golf:

There are several golf courses on the island. You'll find the closest to Soller is most likely Son Termens Golf Course. It has 18-holes and is approximately 15-20 minutes drive away.

Horseriding: Available locally

Guided Walks & Tours: Available locally. We can recommend a very good & well priced guide who speaks both English & German.

Rental of bikes and moped/scooters etc. available in Soller town & Port

Notes:
The property is on the side of a mountain (hence the spectacular views) however it may be unsuitable for the elderly/infirm or those with walking difficulties unless you have a car at your disposal. We do not rent to those with children as the terraces are steep. The property and car park area is all on one level apart from 5 steps to the terrace area where the pool is located. For your convenience, we highly recommend hiring a small car as it makes navigating Soller and the surrounding area much easier! The access road is both narrow and steep and requires a confident driver but the view will be worth it! Best to arrive in daylight only. The house is strictly non-smoking but we provide an ashtray for the safe disposal of cigarettes outside the property. For complete transparency,please note that there is some building work on a house in the community of houses further up the road from our house. It is 3 months to completion. We are not aware of any issues or complaints from our guests
