|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
This apartment is located in the beautiful fishing village in Port de Sóller with views over the whole harbour. Restaurants and shopping facilities are within walking distance. The property is located on the second floor and offers a double bedroom and a small room with bunk beds - ideal for kids. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a washing machine in the bathroom with shower. The living room has also TV, DVD and Stereo with CD player.
Smoking policy: Please restrict smoking to the balcony.
Car park: Parking is possible in the area. Access to the fishing village quarter restricted to neighbours so parking most of the times is available. If not down on the front it is also a large parking area for free.
Absolutely fantastic view which is fascinating and full of interest- the sea is nearer than it looks in the photo so within very easy walking distance are restaurants, shops, plus the activity of the port. It is nonetheless quiet. It is in the former fishermen's area which has been beautifully restored. The flat faces South East so has morning sun but you lose it sometime in the afternoon. Access is up a LOT of steps- both street and in the apartment block, which looks awful ( 70's built) from the outside and is not in character with the rest of the area. Once you're inside it's fine. Parking anywhere near the flat is absolutely awful- narrow, up slopes and very limited. Loads of reversing and trying again to fit into tiny spaces.
The flat was extremely clean and the kitchen well equipped. Bathroom towels were thin and did not match the standard of the rest of the flat. Only one mirror in the whole flat, so that needs sorting out. The bed was new - as was everything else- (all from Ikea, so basic but fine) and very comfortable. There is a TV but only Spanish programmes and a very small CD player. Some DVDs would have been a nice addition.
Location is ideal for exploring the North coast, with good connections to Palma too, though it's 4.45 Euros each way through the tunnel. That could make you feel a bit cut off. Soller itself is a delight -great Saturday market- and excellent locally made ice cream. The whole North west coast is stunning.
This is not a beachy area nor is there a pool anywhere near, so it's not for sun, sea and sand seekers though there is a beach around 10-15 mins walk away at the far side of the bay, but you'd be better renting there if you want a beach. Not a particularly good area for children and totally unsuitable for people with disabilities or the elderly. Great for sightseers and those looking for a fairly central but quiet break.
The company which administers the flat were very helpful and drove us to the flat- otherwise we'd probably never have found it! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again.
everything was fantastic.
The appartment, the view ,the weather...
we will come back!!!
This apartment has an absolutely fantastic view, is in a great location and was spotlessly clean, however there were several flaws that mean that we wouldn't rent the apartment again.
* the second bedroom is a tiny dark cell of a room made very inflexible by huge bunkbeds. We couldn't fit the travel cot in here - a more flexible solution would be a fold down bed and/or sofa bed
* the bathroom had no where to hang anything ( towels or toiletries) which was very annoying. In addition the shower screen is too short to contain the water so you end up with a very wet floor after every shower.
* there was no kettle
* there were no english language TV channels
* the only place to hand washing was on a dryer outside the back bedroom - this area gets very little sun or breeze so washing didn't dry - a floor standing dryer would have been better
A modern, well kept and clean apartment located on the third floor. There is plenty of storage space, the living room is very spacious and the bathroom is quite small but functional. The kitchen has the usual cooking facilities oven/grill, microwave, toaster and fridge and plenty of utensils. There are also portable radiators for anyone not going in peak season. There is a CD and DVD player so you can take your own CDs and DVDs if you wish.
The balcony gets the sun in the morning and the views are fantastic.
The apartment is located in the old fishermen’s area and is the second building down from the Museo de la Mar and as mentioned in the previous review there are quite a few steps to access the apartment. Ideally situated for anyone who is looking for a quieter location away from the main tourist beach and area. There are still plenty of restaurants/shops nearby and a beach within easy walking distance (5-10 mins).
The Agents for the property are Mallorcan Dreams who were very helpful and met us at the apartment to give us the keys. We paid the deposit by Paypal, although you could have paid by credit/debit card or IBAN. (there is a charge for Paypal and credit cards). The balance was paid in cash on arrival but I understand that you can also arrange to pay by credit card.
Wir (2 Kölnerinnen um die 50) haben uns 10 Tage super wohlgefühlt in dieser Wohnung. Die Aussicht ist einfach spitze. A l l e s ist fußmäßig sehr gut erreichbar. Wunderschöne Wanderwege rund um Port de Soller. Sehr gute und hübsche Restaurants sind reichlich vorhanden. Wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder nach Port de Soller und in diese Wohnung !
Traumhaft gelegene Ferienwohnung mit einem super Blick auf den Hafen und die ganze Bucht mit ihren Bergen. Wir haben unsere Abendessen auf dem Balkon sehr genossen, auch die Morgensonne zum Frühstück. Trotz Wind und abends noch frischen Temperaturen war es möglich auf dem geschützten Balkon angenehm zu sitzen. Die Ferienwohnung ist für 2 Personen perfekt, das kleine Kinderzimmer mit nur einem Fenster in einen Lichtschacht haben wir nicht genutzt. Das Fernsehen bietet nur spanische Sender, was für uns aber nicht tragisch war, da wir ja zum Urlaubmachen gekommen sind und nicht zum Fernsehen. Wie schon von anderen beschrieben, ist nach dem Duschen eine Pfütze im Bad, aber auch das lässt sich beheben. Sehr beeindruckend war ein stürmischer Tag, da dann die Meeresgischt über die Felswand an der Rückseite des Hauses kommt und hektoliterweise am Schlafzimmerfenster runter läuft, das Ganze begleitet von einer entsprechenden Geräuschkulisse. Dies tat aber weder dem Urlaubsdomizil noch dem Urlaub einen Abbruch, es war einfach ein ungewöhnliches Schauspiel, zumal das Wasser dann über das Haus ging und die Fußgänger auf der Straße davor überraschte.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist toll, man ist sofort unten am Hafen und in der Stadt, auch die Bushaltestelle ist gut zu Fuß zu erreichen (keine 10 min.). Allerdings sollte man aufgrund der Hanglage und der Treppen auch gut laufen können.
Die betreuende Agentur war freundlich und engagiert. Wir waren sicherlich nicht das letzte Mal da.
