We had a fantastic holiday in this lovely house, near Bunyola. The house is very spacious, beautifully furnished and maintained and very clean. The booking agency was efficient with payments and information, and we had a lovely welcome from the owners - they came regularly to clean the pool and feed the donkeys, and were very accommodating with both our arrival and departure times.
The house is probably the best equipped we have ever stayed in - there was a very good selection of cookware and plenty of crockery, glasses, cutlery etc., so we were able to enjoy lots of lovely family meals in the shady, outdoor eating area. There's a little supermarket in Bunyola itself, as well as a few bakeries for those indulgent breakfast pastries, and cafes for coffees, lunches etc. There's also a number of nearby larger supermarkets for major food and drink buying.
It was very difficult to drag ourselves away from the house but we managed a few trips to Palma, Valldemossa and a lovely trip from Port d'Andratx up to Port de Soller along the coast road - a little bit windy but stunning views. A couple of our party did go on the train to Palma and there were bus stops near the house, but we found it more convenient to use our hire car. My husband would recommend the cycle shop in Port de Soller for bike hire - it's fantastic cycling country, and we also managed a few runs round the quiet back roads (quiet traffic-wise, but a number of noisy and fierce looking dogs who obviously didn't like the look of us!).
It was very hot, but there is plenty of choice between sun and shade in the garden and of course the pool to cool off in. We did struggle to sleep at night though and there did seem a few pesky mosquitoes around then. That's the only reason I haven't given five stars - although I know there's costs with air conditioning (both environmentally and financially), it would make a difference. Mind you, it would make it even more difficult to leave this lovely house to go home ....
We have very happy memories of our holiday in El Parrot!
