My friend and I decided to take our kids, 4 in total, on a one week getaway to Mallorca this October. We found the various houses offered by Cala4you rentals via internet and decided that house 1 was just what we were looking for. All correspondence prior to our arrival was very friendly and efficient.
Upon arrival we found our contact person at the house as awaited and received a short tour of the house and were left to enjoy our stay, knowing that if needed, we could call and ask our contact at any time. Unfortunately the pool was not usable due to it being totally green, but luckily the weather was so fantastic that we were at the beach every day! The house and its surroundings are very pleasant, nicely tucked into the green residential area. The kitchen is spacious and has everything one needs.....even though a few new pots and pans and the odd utensil wouldn't hurt. The rooms for the children are small but comfortable enough. The master bedroom is of a good size and has an on suite bathroom and balcony. There are more than enough bathrooms for the size of the house (2 with bath and one with shower) The property is very nicely situated and great for relaxed and uncomplicated family holidays. Cleanliness is fair, but the drains in the baths were rather clogged with hair and a little more attention could be paid to the kitchen. As often in Spain, the electrical workings of the house are "moody". We had to visit the breaker switches several times. (keep the flashlight found in the kitchen next to your bed ;) )
Cala Sant Vicenc is a quiet little place, without the typical tourist bustle. There are a few restaurants in the area and the two beaches are very nice. Everything is reachable by foot within 5 to 10 minutes. If you have a rental car (a must in my opinion), then you can easily reach many very worthwhile destinations in the area. As far as restaurants are concerned, Its starting to become increasingly difficult not to eat well in Mallorca.....which is a big plus for us.
If your not looking for luxury and you don't mind certain imperfections but you want to enjoy the beauty of Mallorca with your kids, then this is definitely a good choice. The people were very nice, the house is nicely situated and has everything one needs.
We will definitely keep this place in mind for our future visits to the island! Thank you and take care. Lea Schneider
