|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Undoubtedly one of the nicest homes in Binibeca, Villa Alhubara sits serenely on a hillside. Facing south towards the Mediterranean sea, uninterrupted views stretch over turquoise blue waters.
One of the most outstanding features of this property is the upstairs terrace, offering panoramic views in every direction. The villa's location puts you within easy reach of one of Menorca's best white sand swimming beaches, just over half a kilometre from the home.
This elegant residence has all modern amenities and is appointed with guests' comfort in mind. The outdoor living space is completed by the purpose-built barbecue and the heated swimming pool which is gated and has Roman steps at the shallow end for easy access into the water. Three illuminated outdoor eating areas provide a relaxing place to retire after sunset and fragrant jasmine and trumpet flower scent the night air. The lawned garden is fenced and gated and has ample space to play.
POOL/BEACH TOWELS ARE PROVIDED, SO THERE'S NO NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN!
Due to my father's work, we moved around a lot. I spent most of my childhood in Kenya but have also lived in South Korea, England, Qatar, UAE and Austria. In 1997 I moved to Menorca with my two young sons (now grown up!).
Johanna purchased this villa in 1997
When I bought Villa Alhubara, it was a very basic 3-bedroom bungalow badly in need of renovation and modernisation. Gradually, over the years it has been transformed into the lovely home it is today. What was once an overgrown plot with wild bushes and rocks, is now a well tended lawned garden with shrub and flower borders. In 2001 the upstairs floor was added to the property, not only to provide more space, but also to take maximum advantage of the panoramic sea views. As the villa is our winter home, it is furnished and equipped generously and comfortably. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Panoramic sea views, lawned garden, heated and gated pool with Roman steps.
We have just arrived home after spending a fabulous time at the wonderful spacious villa. The views are truly breath taking and the villa is tastefully appointed and contains everything you would want for a super family holiday. Johanna, the owner is so helpful and pleasant. You do not need a car because you can walk to the shops and restaurants and indeed the lovely beach. I wholeheartedly recommend this villa to anybody seeking a wonderful experience in beautiful Menorca!
We have recently returned from two wonderful weeks staying in this villa. Johanna was so helpful from beginning to end. When we arrived Johanna was there to greet us and show us around. There was a very generous welcome basket full of lots of goodies. We were a party of 7 and the villa was the perfect size for us. It is immaculately clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished and the views from both the downstairs and upstairs terraces are stunning. Having the air conditioning was a great bonus as it was very warm during our visit. We searched every night for the resident tortoises and one evening we found one at the bottom of the garden. He/she seemed very pleased to see us too! We would love to return and stay again in the future. Thank you.....
To start with I would just like to say how easy the booking process was. Johanna was really quick to respond to emails and was always very helpful, she helped us with restaurant suggestions and to organise a home delivery food shop the day of our arrival, which saved us valuable relaxing time! Upon arrival at the villa we found it to be spotlessly clean, and it had everything we needed by way of kitchen utensils and beach towels etc. There was also a very nice welcome basket waiting for us filled with many essential and luxury items. The pool and garden area are particularly nice at this villa, we spent two weeks basically lazing around in the sun, the pool itself is a nice size to swim laps or just float around on an inflatable. The beds in the villa are really comfortable, we used the king sized bed in the room on the first floor, which has stunning views of the ocean to wake up to - having air conditioning and ceiling fans really helped towards a restful sleep at night. We hired a car for the fortnight, but we could easily have got away without the use of a car as there is a small Spa supermarket approximately 7 minutes walk away from the villa, along with numerous lovely bars and restaurants. I'd just like to thank Johanna again for letting us rent her lovely home, we had the most relaxing 2 weeks there and we will definitely be back again in the future, and we would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to our friends and relatives.
We recently enjoyed a week at this wonderful villa. There was a large group of us - 5 adults, a 3 year old and a baby. As accommodation goes, it's quite unusual to find one that sleeps a party of this size comfortably, but this villa worked perfectly for us. The beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of bathrooms which is always a priority with a large group, as well as plenty of spaces for everyone to sit comfortably and have their own space! The whole villa was very well equipped, as you would expect when the owner lives in here for the winter season. The newly heated pool was fantastic. I really didn't think we'd be able to enjoy it during the first week in May but we had glorious weather all week and went in the pool nearly every day. The shallow end and the steps were perfect for the 3 year to play around while the fact that it's also gated made us feel safer with a crawling baby exploring everywhere that he could! I have to mention the views - they're wonderful! The upstairs bedroom has a fantastic view, what a lovely way to wake up each morning! You're really spoilt for choice when it comes to places to sit and eat - I think we lost count of the number of places there were tables and chairs! We loved the downstairs outside table and the one on the balcony upstairs.
Johanna, the owner could not have been more helpful. She arranged to have some extra baby equipment there for our arrival and even managed to source a British style birthday cake for my husband's birthday while we were there. Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty! We had a minor issue related to the new pool heating while we were there, but Johanna came round straight away and did everything she could to minimize the impact on our holiday, which I should say, was barely an issue at all.
Binibeca is a lovely little village. The local shop is well stocked and only a short walk away, while there are a few shops and places to eat less than 10 minutes walk away. The beach was quiet and very pretty, though to be honest, when you're staying at such a nice villa with a heated pool, the beach seemed a bit too much effort!
We had a lovely week and I'd highly recommend it.
Ps Keep an eye out for the tortoises in the garden!
This is a wonderful villa, lots of space, and definetively not just the normal holiday house. The owner has lived in it herself and spent many hours, Euros, and, even more important, heart blood. It shows everywhere, the furniture, the decoration, the carpets, the lay-out, the perfect garden, ... and everything in great shape and sparkling clean.
Add to this the absolutely stunning views, the caring service of the owner, what more could you possibly dream off ?
With air conditioning and central heating the villa is well suited for around the year very comfortable living, and Menorca also has a lot to offer in the much more quiet off season.
Bottom line: we´ve been to many places around the world, but this is certainly one of the best, highly recommend it !!
Mi familia y yo llevamos años veraneando en Menorca y nunca hasta ahora nos habiamos encontrado con una Propietaria tan encantadora y dispuesta a ayudar, Desde el primer momento los contactos por correo electronico fueron muy rápidos y fluidos, nos ayudó a encontrar un vehículo de alquiler cuando no quedaba ni uno disponible en la isla.
La vivienda es una preciosa villa con unas vistas espectaculares del mar, está cuidadosamente decorada y tiene un jardín precioso que hicieron las delicias de la familia así como la piscina que estaba perfectamente cuidada.
Sin duda recomiendo esta villa que mantiene un estandar altísimo de calidad, Hemos pasado unas muy buenas vacaciones allí y esperamos repetir el próximo año.
