Soooooo........ relaxing !
Absolutely loved staying in your villa Gabriel. Fantastic location for walking to Puerto Pollensa and easy access to the buses if you want to visit the characterful market in the old town of Pollensa. Spent most of our time enjoying the fantastic pool area and beautiful gardens, with the odd day out exploring. Thank you for making our stay so welcoming and enjoyable Gabriel. Highly recommended!

Papalaya - Villa Stay
Gabriel was a pleasant host to a lovely villa in large grounds and in a convenient location for both the port and the old town. He allowed is to check in early as the villa had not been in use the previous day. The pool is a better size than most but it wasn't maintained during our week due to the hosts illness. However this wasnt a problem.
With a little tlc this could be a first class villa. Some of the beds need updating and more information about surroundings, cooker operation etc would help but it does represent very reasonable value.
There are 3 Papalaya villas in close proximity. I think the description of location relies too heavily on the 57.4 kms signposting and we initially found the wrong villa
Good experience and pleasant holiday with all the benefits of a good villa
Absolutely loved the stay, beautiful surroundings and scenery and the property was fantastic and ideal for a relaxing holiday. The house is great, well equipped and feels very private, even though there is a road close by. The kitchen has everything, and there is a washer so you can do laundry. The rooms are very nice, loved the spacious living room. A car is necessary. There's parking inside the gate. Even though it was quite cold we used the pool. The water was not warm, but it was sunny enough to warm up on the sun beds. Gabriel was very accommodating! We are looking forward to book with him again this recommendable place.
Quaint villa near amenities
Traditional styled villa but could do with a few additions such as sun parasols, plastic cups ( very nervous taking drinks around the pool) and small pool side tables. Everything else was well catered for. Double bed is a bit tired perhaps needs updating as mattress uncomfortable and bed very noisy when moving. Gabriel was helpful even going up and beyond and coming to find us at 2 am when we couldn't find the villa, which if we are honest directions weren't very comprehensive and we were unfamiliar with the area. The next day he came to villa and gave us many tips on good places to eat and visit. English was very good and although we had small issue with the pool this was quickly sorted.
Needs some major TLC.
The owner met us at the villa and was very welcoming but did not have much information about the property and there was no information pack as usually provided. The villa was clean and tidy but was tired and in need of some updating. The pool lights did not work and there was no regular maintenance. The internet was very slow and unusable at times .The hob had a fault and did not shut off on one ring. The grounds at one time must have been beautiful but suffered from lack of skilled maintenance.The final thing was when a granite strip crashed to the floor in the middle of the night which could have been very serious if had fallen on someone. We feel the villa is in need of professional management to continue as a rental property and not value for money at present. We have used Owners Direct for nearly 30 years and have always had a very good experience but this first holiday with Home and Away has not been one to recommend to our friends and family.
Lovely pool and well maintained traditional villa
A great, well maintained family villa - the outdoor verandah and well-sized pool were perfect for a very relaxed holiday - we lived out there! Very private with no other villas on top of you and keypad entrance to the driveway for security. Internally very good with lots of hot water and new dishwasher/washing machine, air con in the bedrooms was much appreciated. The pool was maintained regularly and kept in great condition - good poolside furniture. Gabriel was able to sort out the small problems we had really quickly and happily.
Only watch out is that although the villa is set back from the main road between Pollenca and Port de Pollenca you do hear the traffic noise and this was the only slight distraction but still a 5-star rating :)
