Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and her daughter had a wonderful stay at this apartment. It had all the home comforts and wonderful views of the beach and sea. I would like to thank Michaela for her kind assistance in making their stay such a joy.

My Response

We are glad that your family has enoyed the view over the bay of Cala en Porter and the green cliffs that surround the Mediterranean. Sitting on the terrace of Binimarina has something magic and different every day. Thank you for your comment, we like to assist our guests in the best possible way.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My mam and I stayed in this apartment for a week as a treat for my 30th birthday and we were blown away by the stunning views on the balcony. The apartment is in a perfect location less then five mins to the beach and the same Upto the bars and restaurants. My mam and I both loved relaxing on the gorgeous beach which was very quiet and and swimming quite far out in the crystal clear sea. The apartment is very homely and well equipped for people of all ages. We particularly liked the big walk in wardrobe and there was plenty of space for the two of us. We visited the cave bar/ nightclub and have to say was fantastic definitely worth a look, we walked there and you get some great views from the top ideal for a picture moment. I would also recommend the restaurant El Pulpo lush food we ended up going three times! Will definitely be back at some point only negative would be all those steps which can be quite hard in the heat of the day! Worth it for the view though!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the precious tips on Cala en Porter. Steps could be exhausting but as you pointed out the view from the terrace is fantastic. I like particularly the stunning contrast between Mediterranean blue and deep green of the untouched cliff at the right side of Binimarina.

Great place for a couple to spend time together

  • 5 of 5

We have just stayed at Binimarina for the first week of the summer season.

The apartment itself: well-laid out including a spacious walk-in wardrobe, comfortable bed, all utensils anyone would need are in the kitchen, large fridge and freezer, powerful shower - it is an easy place to feel at ease. Top marks go to the south facing balcony with sun from about 9 in the morning until it set at about 8pm, providing a great view of the beach and sea. On the days we stayed local we didn't go anywhere else for lunch - we had exactly what we wanted to eat and drink because we had bought it in a nearby supermarket and took it out of the fridge, and we had a stunning view that was far better than from most bars and restaurants.

The beach: the breeze that sometimes blows down the valley to the beach can whip up the fine sand and we saw clouds of it blowing in the air. The sea was still cold and not many people went in for long, though it will only improve through the summer months. The pedalloes had arrived and sea kayaking trips had started so there were activities available on the sea, not just in it.

The local area: we weren't quite prepared for such a strong UK ex-pat community. There was no shortage of English football and even horse racing on screens in bars, with plenty of fish and chips, chicken and chips, meat pie and chips, and even saw a woman eat spaghetti bolognese and chips! If it's what you fancy then Pito's is good value, with friendly service and a warm atmosphere. Its take-away pizza service is poplar with locals and holidaymakers alike. The restaurant in the castle has chefs from Galicia and provides more authentic Spanish meals. Can't say too much else about the range of bars and restaurants because it was so early in the season that some had not yet opened, and some that had were rather short of customers and the lack of any atmosphere was unappealing.

Further afield, trips to Mahon (take a bus from the top of the steps that go to the beach) and Cuitadella (either a two hour stop on a day trip of the island bookable at the Spar supermarket, or hire a car) gave us much more of a Spanish experience and are worth the effort. The walking trails are well signposted and provide quality time in a natural environment.

Overall, we had a great time. Everything you need is within a few minutes’ walk. Binimarina is a wonderful place for a couple to spend time together with a balcony view that's normally the preserve of luxury hotels.

Casa e vista meravigliose

  • 5 of 5

Siamo appena tornati e abbiamo ancora davanti agli occhi quel meraviglioso panorama dalla terrazza di casa, indimenticabile!

La casa è davvero splendida, spaziosa, pulita e arredata con gusto nei colori blu/bianco/giallo fino ai graziosi decori sulle pareti.

Noi siamo in tre e devo dire che era proprio a nostra misura; la nostra camera matrimoniale spaziosa e con un bel guardaroba, la camera della bambina, un grazioso angolino con i suoi cassetti e antine, il bagno con una grande doccia sempre a temperatura e acqua ottimali, il soggiorno con tv, tavolo e un comodo divano pieno di cuscinoni, la cucina blu con la finestra che sembra un quadro sul mare e cucinare diventa un piacere ed infine la terrazza...! Uno spazio direi vitale della casa, ombrellone moderno e utilissimo, tavolo rotondo e sedie da regista blu e barbecue gigante!

La terrazza regala un panorama che ti stupisce ogni giorno e che cambia luci e colori adogni ora!

Sembra di avete una piscina sotto casa, scendi qualche gradino, fai una bella nuotata, risali per una doccia e per goderti la spiaggia e il mare dall'alto, impagabile!

La casa è circa a metà della scalinata che dal paese porta in spiaggia, quindi direi perfetta per non farsi venire più di tanto fiatone!

Il paese di Cala en Porter è piccolino ma con dei bei ristoranti e locali, il supermercato Spar ha tutto il necessario e a fianco si possono noleggiare macchine ad un buon prezzo. Punto di partenza ideale per gite in fantastiche calette; le nostre preferite Cala Galdana, Mitjana, Turchesa e ovviamente Ciutadella, davvero particolare! La proprietaria è di una gentilezza rara, al nostro arrivo ci ha fatto trovare una bella bottiglia di tinto e alcuni prodotti senza glutine per mia figlia celiaca! Inoltre in casa non manca proprio nulla, oltre a lavatrice e lavastoviglie, in cucina ci sono sale, pepe, olio, aceto, the, caffè, zucchero... In bagno detersivi, sapone carta igienica... Insomma non manca nulla! Preziosi i teli mare e il cambio settimanale di asciugamani e biancheria letto compresi nel prezzo! Il clima è fantastico a Minorca e comunque la casa è sempre fresca anche sotto il sole; dormire con il sottofondo delle onde del mare non ha prezzo...! Assolutamente la consiglierei e ci ritornerei!

Owner's Response: Cari Alessandra, Paolo e Sofia, grazie per aver descritto in dettaglio le caratteristiche di Binimarina. Anche io amo particolarmente la vista mutevole dalla terrazza e dalla finestra della cucina. Il mare e la spiaggia sotto casa sono uno spettacolo nello spettacolo. Ancora su HomeAway non è data la possibilità di lasciare un commento sugli ospiti -così come si fa ad esempio su Air bnb. Se si potesse, certo direi che siete ospiti splendidi e attenti a tutto, gli ospiti ideali. Quando mi avete mandato la foto dei vostri primi giorni di vacanza, mi avete davvero riempito il cuore di allegria!

Great apartment , perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Grazie Michaela! What a wonderful apartment.

The apartment is a good size for 2 people and maybe a 3rd little one.

It was clean and very comfortable.

We were very pleased to see a rental apartment so well equipped, every detail had been thought of, towels, sun unbrellas, cool bag, dishwasher and even a mokka to make fresh coffee!

We were also impressed to see a welcome pack of basic essentials, butter, milk, bread, tea and even a bottle of red. A very nice touch.

There is a library of books to be found in BiniMarina - some great old reads you probably haven't seen for a while, in both English and Italiano.

We spent most of our time on the balcony admiring the stunning views the the apartment had to offer. We also made the most of the bbq on the balcony, coal and briquettes were all provided!

Directions given by the owner were clear and easy to follow.

The location is perfect, fantastic views of the cala en porter beach and a short walk to the bars and restaurants of the small town.

Information left In the apartment by the owner was great, we visited a few of her recommended beaches and restaurants and we're never dissapointed!

I would 100% recommend Binimarina, Michaela really does go the extra mile to ensure you have a perfect stay!

Grazie per un vacanze meravigliosa, ci vediamo l'anno prossimo

Owner's Response: Thank you for having described Binimarina in such an accurate way. It is good to know that you loved my recommended beaches, and also that you enjoyed the Mediterranean view from the terrace. Menorca is a wonderful island, to be discovered day by day.

Nos ha encantado tu casa de Menorca. Hemos estado muy a gusto, todo perfecto (las vistas al mar, la terraza, la barbacoa, la casa...). Muchas gracias por la botella de vino y las cosas que nos dejaste para desayunar (leche, mermelada, mantequilla...). Es un detalle.

Te hemos dejado en tu casa: una sombrilla para el sol, gel de ducha que nos sobró, y una mini botella de Martini (no sabemos si te gustará) para que te prepares un vermut a nuestra salud.

Ningún problema.

Recomendaremos el alquiler de tu casa a todos nuestros amigos/conocidos que viajen allí. Nos hubiera gustado aprovechar la semana entera pero por motivos de trabajo sólo pudimos estar 5 noches, es una lástima :( Seguro que repetiremos en el futuro.

Springtime on the Island

  • 5 of 5

We liked a lot the appartement Binimaria, which is very good equipped, nicely decorated and comfortable! We can highly recommend it!

It was great to discouver the island – we walked a lot of sections of the Cami de Cavalls and visited Cala des Talaier, Cala en Turqueta, Cala Macarella and Macarellata, Es Grau, s’Albufera, Cales Coves, Son Bou, Fornells, Faro Favaritx, Castell de Santa Agueda, Ciutadella, Punta Nani,.... so many different landscapes and places to explore! Especially we enjoyed the pre-season and the empty beaches and the not overcrowded island. Despite the early season the weather was quiet good and sunny, only one day it rained.

Thank you very much for the detailed instructions to reach Binimaria and the tipps for the island!

- Binimaria ist absolut zu empfehlen! Die Lage, Ausstattung und Einrichtung ist super! -

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Lilian. We love to have guests like you that have an exploring attitude. Binimarina's location at Cala'n Porter is very convenient either if you want to discover beautiful Menorca by car or walking the Cami de Cavalls. The beach is also ideal if you want only to rest in the sun.

Car: not necessary

Menorca Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO for almost twenty years, is a wild island and unusual. A short distance from the university town of Alaior, Cala en Porter is enclosed within the ancient cliffs Esclafat and Ponent. The beach is white - a cove shaped conchiglia- deep blue sea.

And all around, lush Mediterranean vegetation, naturally protected from the north wind.

A beautiful bay of calm water, fine sand and bottom sloping offer optimal conditions for swimming. The village is not very big, a 20-minute walk you can cross, but offers a great selection of bars, restaurants and shops. A staircase leads from the top of the village to the beach, which can also be accessed by car.

On the side of Cala en Porter is the evocative Talaia de ses Penyes, built on cliffs that reach up to 68 meters high. Nearby the Cova d'en Xoroi, spectacular local created inside a natural cave overlooking the sea: hosts the most popular disco in Menorca, but also opens the aperitif, in time for a sunset that often allows to see the sea to Mallorca.
