Overview

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 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.

About Owner

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.

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 out of 5
We have seen the first picture of the Casita Tranquilidad and decided we need to go there and first contact to the owner was so nice that we were 100% that it was the best decision. The view is sooooo beautiful. We knew Soller from a former trip, but to sit next to the lovely pool at daytime or enjoy a sundowner made us so happy. The Casita is well equipped like in the description and you get every help you need from the owner beginning with a welcome drink, fruits and and and....
Just one thing you need to keep in mind. If you rent a car take the smallest class. Driving up the first time you will be happy for this decision.
You will love it. It is a got place to start your hiking tours.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 out of 5
We had never booked a villa online before and were a little bit wary of the process but from our first contact with Olwen, things couldn’t have been any simpler or smoother. The communication was exceptional and we were sent lots of information on the local area and directions and instructions for getting there.
Once we had arrived and negotiated out way up the lane by car we were met by Jude who was also very helpful and cheery, he provided us with a constant supply of freshly picked oranges which we squeezed and drank every day.
The cassita is perfect and had views to die for, the Palma to Soller train has a viewing stop just up the hill where the passengers get a brief opportunity to take in the view which we had for 2 weeks. Everything you could want is provided in the casita, cooking indoors or outdoors on the gas barbeque. We spent many days just chilling out by the pool and relaxing indeed we often couldn’t be bothered to head out at night but just cooked for ourselves and sat on the terrace with a glass of wine watching the sun set behind the mountains.
It is just a short walk into the centre of Soller where there is plenty of places to have a meal and spend the evening people watching. Soller is an excellent base if you want to explore the Tramuntana mountains and its wonderful towns and villages. The walk to Biniaraix is an easy stroll with fantastic views.
To sum up Casita Tranquilidad it offers excellent facilities in an exeptionaly beautiful setting with spectacular views of Soller, the communication and service was also first class. The perfect place for a relaxing break.
PS The casita has an excellent broadband Wi-Fi connection for those of us who like to make our friends very jealous by posting pictures of Casita Tranquilidad online 

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 :-)

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
