About Sophia Jensen

We live some of the year in Antigua, West-Indies but love being in Mallorca too. It has become 'home' over the years to our four children and 7 grandchildren.

Sophia Jensen purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sophia Jensen chose Illetes

The apartment is spacious, very well maintained and fitted out; completely done in 2018. It takes up the whole of the top floor of the building; so no 'neighbours' beside or above. Everything is in place for a lovely relaxing holiday for the whole family. We have many people returning year after year; a good sign. Home Away have recently been taken over and have changed their module; in order to maximise their profits, we are now forced to route all the payments through them. They should pass your payment on to us the day you arrive. However, up to now we have not received ANY payment at all from Homeway while the guests transferred the rental some six months previous. This situation is clearly not acceptable for either the guests or ourselves; therefore, if you wish to stay in our place, you need to pay Home Away their commission only and the cost of the rental to us please.

What makes this apartment unique

With a swimming pool in the rear garden, two beaches in front and a large and secure apartment, it is easy to keep the children happy. Food shops very close by (a few minutes), lots of nice restaurants, bus service to Palma every 15 minutes, the location is perfect. yet very quiet and peaceful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just want to give You some feed back after our stay in the apartment in Illetes last week. To summarise; we had a wonderful week and the accommodation and all the helpful information you provided us with was excellent - thank You!

We were also very fortunate with the weather which also added to the positive experience and feels extra good now since the current weather in Sweden is anything but good.

Next time we go to Mallorca we would definitely check if the apartment is available for rent since we had such a great experience.

Wish You all the best!

MJ and family from Sweden.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very restful and relaxing stay. The apartment had everything we could have needed. The property was clean and just as described. The view was magnificent - there is nothing nicer then getting up in the morning and drinking your tea looking out across the sea. The apartment is only a 15 minute drive from Palma and was close to many other bays and beaches. We had two 18 year olds with us who went to both the water park and a concert at Magaluf and were able to get back quickly and cheaply.There were also a number of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Communication with one of the owners, Sophia, was very easy and prompt. Carlos and Remy were very willing to help whenever required even looking after our luggage before we left for the airport.

I would love to go back to the apartment and would not have any hesitation in recommending it.

Fantastic apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 lovely days at this fantastic apartment; 4 adults and 2 kids. Spacious, clean and well equipped - I can not find a single thing to complain about :-) The airconditoned bedrooms are very nice to sleep in when the Mallorcan heat is on in July. Also the communication with Sophia was very good and we would love to go back some other time. We can recommend having dinner at Restaurante Illetas Playa opposit the beach - it was very delicious!

Great apartment and super location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay.

The apartment is so airy, spacious and comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and everything worked. We loved sitting on the balcony watching all the boats in the bay. Everything you need is there and Remy and Carlos are friendly and helpful if there are any problems. This has to be the best apartment I've ever stayed in.

Illetas is nice and quiet but still an attractive place to stay. There are restaurants and bars close by and the bus into Palma stops very close to the front entrance. The beach is just across the road and it also has a great bar and restaurant, super food. The swimming pool is an added bonus.

We had a great time and would love to return one day. Highly recommended.

Delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this apartment several times, it's just delightful over and over again. The rooms in the apartment are all very spacious and comfortable. The two balconies (including sunshades) are perfect to enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner while enjoying beautiful views over the Palma Bay and its skies. Everything you need for a nice holiday (extra beach towels, beach toys, travel guides and maps) is available in the apartment. The pool is really pleasurable and the garden around it, is abundant with flowers and absolutely beautiful.

In the close environment of the apartment we found everything we needed: two small supermarkets, a lovely sheltered beach and several nice restaurants. The Virtual Beach Club and the Balneario Illetas Beach Club which are both very nice, are just across the street.

If you want to go to Palma, the bus stop is 2 minutes away and running frequently. Do you want to explore more of the beautiful island, a car might be convenient: we are always surprised that how busy the coastline might be, drive a little inland and everything is quiet and peaceful.

We really hope we get the opportunity to come back again soon!

We had two families (total of 5 staying) at the flat for 8 days. The location was great since it was just a few minutes walk to the beach, right on the bus line going to Palma and had several good restaurants in the immediate area. Although the water was cold (both beach and pool), there was plenty to do in Palma to keep us busy.

The caretakers, Carlos and Remy saw to our every need and even transported us to the airport at the end of our stay (he's a taxi driver).

The owner, Sophia, sent us very complete instructions and restaurant recommendations which made our stay more enjoyable less stressful.

The flat itself was just as advertised with plenty of room and gorgeous views from every balcony. In short, our stay was perfect!

Perfect For Us

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to great beach, fantastic balcony for dining overlooking the bay. Well equipped with all mod cons. We were a family group - 6 of us including our 2 boys and 2 grandparents and this appartment suited our needs. Very good frequent bus service to Palma also
