DELIGHTFUL PROPERTY, QUIET AND SECLUDED, CLOSE TO BEACH.

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Puerto de Alcudia - Casa Helena

3 Double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

A delightful, well cared for home, situated in an attractive & quiet town area ,yet only a 10min walk either to the magnificent long white sandy beach of Alcudia, or to restaurants, bars, and shopping. Casa Helena has a very private 500sq m garden, with a lovely 8x4 swimming pool, 2 outdoor terraces for dining 'al fresco' and lawn areas, bordered with Mediterranean cypress trees, colorful bougainvillea and hibiscus. The house has an open plan living and dining area, a fully appointed, recently renovated kitchen, including dishwasher, gas hob, electric fan oven, microwave and osmosis filtered drinking water (no need to buy bottled water!). The main bedroom is equipped with a queen size double bed and has an ensuite bathroom with a hydromassage bath. The other 2 bedrooms each have 2 single beds, and share the 2nd bathroom. The whole house is tastefully decorated, well appointed and comfortably furnished.

Family fun!: Casa Helena is well situated for easy access to many different venues which provide entertainment for all the family - mums and dads included! Just 5min walk away is the hydropark, with water slides and rides for a great way to spend the day, or afternoon. Also very close, is a track for go-cart enthusiasts. For evening entertainment, the family fun pubs such as Cheers, or Woody Woodpeckers, are also only a 5 min. stroll away. There is a huge variety of restaurants - including Spanish, English, International, Chinese, Indian, Italian and Scandinavian cuisine, within easy walking distance (5 -10 min), so you can enjoy a wine or 3 without having to worry about driving home. The beautiful beach of Alcudia, as mentioned, is only a 10 min. easy stroll, and also includes activities such as paddle boats, banana boat rides, parachuting ( by boat), beach volleyball, windsurf -- or just simply building sandcastles! And to tour the town, a 4 wheel bicycle cart for all to enjoy!

Chill out!: For those looking for a quiet and relaxed holiday, Casa Helena is also very suitable, because although being close to the beach and all amenities, it is in a very quiet and secluded situation. There are no nearby restaurants, bars or hotels, so therefore no unwanted noisy music or people. Dining at home is also an attractive option -- there is a lovely tropical wood dining table on the terrace, with seating for up to 8 people -- and to linger over a meal on a warm Mediterranean night,overlooking the lit up pool, really is the ultimate chill out experience! The main port area of Puerto Alcudia is a pleasant 20min walk from Casa Helena around the back of the beach -( there is also a frequent bus service.) Here you will find the boat marina, and the 'paseo', a large strolling area to enjoy the view of the harbour, or stop for a refreshment or a meal at one of the many outdoor cafes and restaurants. There are also small paved streets, well known for their Spanish 'tapas' bars!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for your kind and appreciative comments about your stay at Casa Helena.

In April, while the weather is warm, it can still be a little cool for swimming (even for tough northern Germans!)Just a few weeks later, in May, the weather is much warmer, and the pool temperature is 25 deg.!

The neighbour's kitten, Fum, is still visiting, and growing fast!

Welcome back - perhaps next time in the summer months, so you can enjoy the house and pool facilities to maximum benefit!

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We just arrived back home after 1 week of holidaying in this beautiful house. It was a perfect vacation and everything was great, every amenity you would need was there and the garden and pool was just amazing. Jaime was so helpfull and it was just the best vacation.

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure, and very satisfying to receive such positive comments from guests, (this is the best advertisement for the property!) - so a big thank you to my reviewers!
I try to provide everything that could be needed to ensure an enjoyable and relaxing holiday for my guests - even down to small practical things such as rolls of cling film and foil for wrapping sandwiches for a beach picnic!
The layout of the house, with flowing living areas onto the terraces, garden and pool area are indeed very suitable for easy summer living on holiday!
My neighbour Jaime, does an excellent job as contact person, and is always on hand to offer any help or advice to guests if needed.
Welcome back to my reviewers, (and first time holiday makers), for more great holidays at Casa Helena!

A lovely villa

  • 4 out of 5
Well equipped, clean and lovely pool area. I would have rated 5 star if the villa had air conditioning. Too hot in July and the fans weren't quite powerful enough.
The hydromassage bath was also not working and neither was the dvd player. Jaime did a great job with the pool and Desna fixed all the issues but unfortunately not until we had left.
Not quite close enough to the beach for our liking but a lovely property and I would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: To be fair, Casa Helena is advertised as having no air conditioning, and being a 10 min walk from the beach. If holidaymakers require a villa with air/con and closer to the beach, then the most logical answer is to book a villa which fits that criteria/description.I would also like to point out that during this family’s stay, there was a heat wave lasting several days, pushing temps up to 40 deg C. Even the most robust of fans would struggle to keep the air cool in these extreme temperatures. Under normal summer temps of 30 – 33 deg. the fans provide adequate cooling.Of the issues mentioned, I appreciated this family informing me, because if guests don’t tell me, I don’t know that things have stopped working. I was assured by them that it was not a problem, they just thought I should know – therefore, to avoid causing any disruption to their holiday, I arranged for the mechanism of the hydromassage bath to be repaired on the Saturday (change over day and this family’s departure day). This was quite a complicated procedure, taking over 3 hours, and would have been a considerable inconvenience to the family concerned. I am happy to report that it is now fully repaired and once again working. The DVD problem has also been resolved – the source of the malfunction being a hitch in the configuration of the AV set up, and cables connected incorrectly.My apologies to my reviewers that these facilities for the house were not working during their stay. Although I check carefully that everything is working at the beginning of the season, it is inevitable that with general wear and tear, or incorrect usage, that something may break down during the months of the summer lets. I pride myself on keeping Casa Helena in tip top condition, so that it remains one of the most popular holiday homes in Puerto Alcudia, and has many returning guests every summer!

Kind regards,
Desna.

Excellent house, perfectly located! Recommended!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great and relaxing two week holiday at this villa. The house is exactly as lovely as the pictures show! It was very clean and tidy and basically everything we needed was provided.

We very much enjoyed spending some time in the sun and then diving into the pool to cool off :). In addition, there are different seating areas when some time in the shade is needed.

We also very much liked the seating area on the terrace where we had breakfast every day. Supermarkets are close by where you could get everything you need.

The house is located in a quiet nabourhood, but also fairly close (10-15 min walk) to Puerto Alcudia where there is everything you need. We rented a car for two weeks to be able to explore a bit more of the island, but it really isn't necessary. We actually spent most of our time at the house!

Thank you Desna and Jaime for being very helpful before and during our visit! We are hoping to go back next year.

Owner's Response: Year after year, Casa Helena continues to be a 'home away from home', and for many returning guests, like slipping into a well loved favourite armchair!
As my reviewers found, it is very easy just to laze away the days by the pool, and that's a real holiday - unwind and chill out! But for those who do like to be a bit more active, Mallorca has many nice places to visit - but you might just need more than one holiday to see it all! As the owner, I can't always be there, but my neighbour Jaime does a great job of meeting my guests and being on hand for any queries that might arise.
Welcome back to my reviewers, and welcome also to all those wishing to stay at this popular holiday home for the first time!

A great holiday home

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great, relaxing holiday in this excellent villa. It is appointed to a very high standard and the private garden and pool are truly first class. We thoroughly enjoyed using the two different seating areas which meant you could always find either a sunny or cooler shady place depending on your preference.

We enjoyed great communication from Desna both before and during our stay and Jaime next door was extremely helpful with local advice etc.

Thank you Desna and Jaime for helping us have a great holiday in your lovely villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you to this reviewer for the high praise for this popular holiday home. It is indeed a pleasure to welcome holiday makers to my home, and know that, time and time again, a lovely relaxing holiday is enjoyed by all.
Jaime, my neighbour, is invaluable in being my 'right hand man' when I am unable to be in Mallorca, and does an excellent job in making my guests feel welcome, helping out with advice on where to go and what to do, and keeping the pool in tip top condition! He is a star, as this family found out!
The garden and pool area are private, and provide both ample sun and plenty of shade - for when a respite is needed from the hot Mediterranean sunshine!
I hope to see my reviewers back another time, and welcome also to all future 'first timers'!

RECOMMENDED

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned from our 2 week holiday at the Casa Helena, having done a variety of Villa holiday's this is one that was one of the most relaxing to date. The accomodation was accurate and the pictures depicted exactly what you get! The property was clean and tidy and there was far more provided by Desna for your convenience than you would normally expect ie., Beach towels, 2 good hairdryers, a good variety of spices, tea bags, cling film, baking foil, toilet rolls, kitchen rolls. napkins and so the list goes on!!!!

Excellent position, quiet but close to the beach and Port within a 10/15 min walk.

Would not hesitate to go back asap.

Owner's Response: Relaxing holidays are what Casa Helena is all about! With an inviting pool at home, and the lovely beach of Puerto Alcudia just a short stroll away - this could be your most difficult holiday decision - pool or beach! But of course, most guests combine the both, and manage to fit in the many other attractions that this great family resort offers! And I am so glad that Casa Helena continues to be a popular base from which to enjoy it all!
The basic provisions in the kitchen, such as foil, cling, spices etc, as this appreciative reviewer has mentioned, are a touch of practicality on my part - they are things we all use a little of, so rather than each family having to purchase these items, I just keep them 'rolling on'!
A hearty welcome back to this reviewer, and a big welcome also to all 'first timers'!

Puerto Alcudia is a very popular summer holiday resort, its main attraction being the 10km long white, sandy beach, with crystal clear water and shallow shoreline, making it very safe for children. It is an ideal destination for families, with a large variety of outdoor activities available. The old town of Alcudia is 2km away- an interesting historic centre, with paved streets enclosed within 800 yr old Roman walls, which look stunning when lit up at night! Market day is held twice a week. A frequent bus service connects to neighboring resort towns, Ca´n Picafort (8km east) and Puerto Pollensa (5km west).On the edge of Puerto Alcudia is the nature reserve, 'Albufera' - home to a variety of wild birdlife. On the peninsula dividing the bays of Alcudia and Pollensa, there are quiet coves and beaches, such as Mal Pas, SÍllot, and Alcanada, and higher up, La Victoria and Sa Talaia, offering breathtaking views over the both bays and the mountains. In general, it is a very beautiful area.

Other Activities: boat excursions, snorkelling, hydropark.
