Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Pine Walk - Footprints Villa

Set in a very quiet & private location, with own HEATED pool. Sleeps 8.

Footprints Villa, with over 50 reviews on this site, makes it the most top marked client-reviewed villas of its size on the whole island of Mallorca, on this site - Homeaway.

Footprints Villa is a stylish, contemporary, modern home, detached & totally private, with its own private heated pool & mountain views, just a few seconds walk to the beaches & Pine Walk, Puerto Pollenca. Sleeps 8 (4 bedrooms). Perfect for families.

Newly built just a few years ago, its location is ideal for all to wander safely to the beaches and into town (especially teenagers!) along the pedestrianised sea front Pine Walk.

It's rare to find a newly built, stylish, designer villa with private pool & grounds (not overlooked), within walking distance (approx100m) to the sea front. Created with modern contemporary design to provide privacy & ease of living, the villa incorporates south facing pool decks, large roof terrace - both with lots of space for sun lovers, outside dining & fully air conditioned/ heated interiors.

Inside, the large 40 foot open living space has a striking granite & chrome new kitchen, leading to the lounging area - with flat screen TV, (UK satellite, DVD) & plentiful plush seating, all leading to the pool, patios & BBQ.

With 45+ 5 star rated reviews and counting on this site, this villa is now the most top-marked reviewed home on this site, excluding flats and apartments from the 10,000 properties listed on Mallorca.

Bars and restaurants all within walking distance.

Free wireless, bath robes, toiletries.

Beach/pool towels now provided.

Footprints toiletries now supplied by The White Company, London, England.

Welcome pack provided.

Flight info - the best flight for low cost flights is www.skyscanner.net. It searches all low cost carries are also mixes and matches - travel out with one airline, and return with another, creating the lowers price on line!

Things to do (other than relax by the sea or pool).....

Golf Clubs closest to Footprints villa: Why not enjoy some wonderful local golf during your stay.

The closest 18 hole course is Pollenca Golf, located around 15 minutes drive from the villa. A fine test of golf can be found at the sea-edge course of Alcudia, around 25 minutes drive.

Cycling: The island of Mallorca is a world renowned training location for all levels of cycling fans, especially out of the high summer season. Why not enjoy the villa as a base for your cycling holiday. It's located east of the testing Formentor run, and west of the mountains that rise up near Pollenca old town and range for many miles over to the west coast of the island.

Local places to see, visit and enjoy: This Footprints villa, like all our locations, carries a in-villa log, where we, and past guests have written of their adventures! Good (and bad) bars, restaurants etc are detailed, so you will always find the perfect place to experience.

About Richard Affleck, owner

Hi! I'm Richard, the owner of Footprints Villa. I live in Bowness in the Lake District, with my partner and children of assorted ages!

Thank you for taking the time to check out my Puerto Pollensa home and if you wish to come and stay, please just complete the enquiry form and I'll get back to you immediately. I directly manage all my clients' enquiries (no call centre agents for me!) and endeavour to provide a tip top service, from first enquiry, through pre-arrival planning and information and am always available during your stay, as is my manager in resort who lives close by for all your needs.

I bought this house a few years ago, but as it was built in the 60's in a rather basic fashion, down it came and with the help of a brilliant and sought after Palma architect and an excellent local firm, we created Footprints, using modern techniques, lovely local materials (all the exceptional joinery, doors, windows etc where made in Pollenca!) and simple thought of how one would wish to live with family and friends in the sun...for those precious week(s) of holiday time.

Richard Affleck, owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why Richard Affleck, owner chose Pine Walk

Why this property?....easy. Location is a given....so close to the sea you can smell it and walk to it in minutes, as well as great places to eat and drink along the famous sea-edge Pine Walk.

The villa is at the western end, so rarely busy as perfectly distanced from the town but within easy reach on foot.

Set amounts a small gathering of other private homes it's aspect was also vital in picking the location. It's quiet, safe and homely.

And it's south facing, so sunny all day (although well shaded decks if it gets too hot!). The private pool help there of course, not to mention a quick dip in the sea followed by cocktails at the Illa D'or beach bar of course!

What makes this villa unique

It's unique benefits, save the location are, I feel, a great use of space in the design....large open plan living space, leading out, via 3 huge glass sliding doors onto the pool deck. Four bedrooms, 2 at each end of the villa are uniquely furnished, with great beds and high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and duvets.

As the villa is all on one level, its ideal too for those members of your group who may be less able to get around independently. My step sister has been wheelchair bound with MS (sadly only in her 40's) so design ideas like a sliding pocket door to one wet room, low lip main access doors (we even have a ramp if needed) grab rails in one bathroom....all add up to easing independence for those who want it and deserve it as they wish.

To add security, the entire villa is fenced with just one access gate, so keeping wandering little guests within the perimeter is assured!

There is an expansive roof terrace too, with new canopy 'sail' shade if needed and for 2014, I'm adding more 'chill out' furniture....it's always proved popular for adults and especially teenagers to use it as 'their space', so I'm enhancing this mountain view space.

Beyond furniture, English TV, wireless, pool towels, bathrobes etc etc all of which guests rightly expect, I feel the most important 'unique benefit' of any holiday home is how it works for the families and friends who stay there and thus my focus, from design, through construction and to being in operation, is to apply every small details I know I would want, and working year on year to pick up on suggestions from past and returning clients to ever evolve Footprints into a memorable, relaxing and happy home for all, young and old. Holidays must be the best bits of our lives & times together, and thus I hope Footprints delivers for those who choose to stay.

Five Star Villa

  • 5 out of 5
I am a little reluctant to write a wonderful review for this villa, as I would like to keep it a secret! Footprints is a great villa for a family holiday - it is spacious, tasteful and well equipped. Although we enjoyed eating out (and there are many good restaurants) we equally enjoyed staying in and having family meals. It is well positioned for the beach and walking into town, we hired bikes for the week which meant we could cycle to the larger (and cheaper) supermarkets. In addition to the great villa we were lucky enough to have good weather which was an added bonus. The owner is very efficient and could not have been more helpful in respect to our booking. We love Puerto Pollensa and certainly hope to return to Footprints with all the family again.

Wonderful Family Holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful family holiday at Footprints Villa! Perfectly located 2 minutes walk to the sea and really well appointed. Lots of space to enjoy the lovely October sunshine around the pool (the kids loved the roof terrace away from the adults!). Ideal location to be able to walk to bars, well stocked supermarket and places to eat along The Pine Walk and a little further into town, but nicely away from the crowds. The villa is on one level, with 2 bedrooms each at both ends of the house with their own bathrooms, so a good feeling of space. High standard of furnishings and little touches of quality throughout. An ideal home from which to explore the area, or just relax in. Well recommended. Excellent service from booking to arrival/through out stay. We're coming back!

Owner's Response: Dear Sandra
I am thrilled you all had a wonderful time at my villa home. Sounds like the sun continued to shine for your October holiday! It was a pleasure to be of service and greatly appreciate your kind comments about the villa, it's layout (especially the roof terrace for the kids!) and its location within walking distance to all the local facilities.
I hope the transfers from the airport were timely and efficient. Not needing to hire cars is such a benefit when this close to the sea, restaurants etc along the Pine Walk.
I do look forward to welcoming you back to Footprints Villa.
My kind regards.

Fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5
Have just arrived home after an amazing holiday at Footprints Villa. The villa is well appointed, clean and tidy. The living space large enough to accommodate 8 people. The beds extreamly comfortable (wanted to bring it home), and the outside space is just about perfect, plenty of sun beds, plenty of shade and sun for everyone. What more could one want?! The villa is located in a residential area within easy walking distance to the nearest beach, although those traveling with the elderly or infirm may want to consider hiring a car as the center of the resort is quite a walk. Restaurants are varied and plentiful so everyone's taste should be catered for, recommended are El Casinet which is located at the far end of Pine Walk and The Trio which is next to the Flora appartments, both offer a great "menu del dia" . The nearest supermarket is about a 5 minutes walk and the fresh bread and pastries are perfect for breakfast. All in all a great holiday which we hope can be repeated for years to come. X

Owner's Response: Dear Emma and family.

Thank you for taking the time to report on your holiday at Footprints!
It sounds like you all had a great time together at the villa and out & about in the town.
Your restaurant suggestions sound great. We too enjoy El Casinet but not discovered The Trio, so will put in on the list!
I'm pleased you enjoyed the beds (brand new mattresses were purchased the week before your stay!!) and the villa was ideal for your family.
Finally, thank you for planning the next trip! You'll be most welcome.
Kind regards.

Stylish, modern villa in lovely Puerto Pollenca

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Footprints with one of our adult daughters and three of her friends. A great feature was that two of the bedrooms are at one end of the villa and the other two at the opposite end, so we were able to keep ourselves apart from the younger ones who wanted to stay out later. The roof terrace too meant that we could have our own private sunbathing space while the others lounged by the pool.
Footprints is a lovely stylish villa just a short walk from the seafront Pine Walk. It is a great place to be - close enough but not too close to the centre of things.

Car: not necessary

You can not get any closer to all the facilities a family requires from a holiday in Puerto Pollenca. No car required, as beach (150 metres) shops (250 metres), restaurants and bars (100 metres and beyond) and the main town are ALL within walking distance.

I can recommend an excellent airport transfers company (from cars to 8 seater mini-buses).

Most villas in the area are set in the outer areas of the town, requiring a car for visiting the beach, bars and even just to grab a pint of milk! Otherwise, its an apartment with a busy shared pool.

Footprints villa enjoys a fantastic location to enable you to arrive, park the car, and leave it if you wish!

100 metres from the sea, set in a delightfully quiet tree-lined cul-de-sac of exclusive residential homes.

It is moments to places to eat, drink and shop, especially those located along the quiet, upmarket western section of the Pine Walk.

The villa is a haven. Relax by the pool, on the decks, or even on the large roof deck with great mountain views, or inside in the trendy lounge, or at the bar at the slick kitchen made by hand in the Old town of Pollensa with white granite tops, with Bosch equipment, coffee machine, dishwasher etc....or your designer bedroom, all equipped with thick, fluffy towels and bath robes, The White Company toiletries. I provide a complimentary welcome pack on arrive.

The villa is fully wireless for internet.
