Over years we’ve rented many, many holiday villas and this is up there with the best. It scores high marks in every area: Kitchen – fully stocked & spacious. Aircon - in all bedrooms (and very effective). Pool – very large (clean on arrival and cleaned twice more within our 10 day stay). Garden – fantastic area, enclosed with multiple seating areas (plenty sun loungers and seats) in sun & shade – and a large BBQ.
Location – quiet neighbourhood but right in the village, two supermarkets are a 2 minute drive, nearest restaurants 3min walk – wider selection 15min walk. The village has 3 sections: old part which is quaint and quiet, the middle section (where the villa is) is also pretty undeveloped & quiet but has a very decent selection of restaurants on the sea front. Then, further along on the right, there is newer touristy section – which also has a lovely large, clean beach (10-15min walk from villa). Overall, the village is nice – not a lot of shops and definitely not a nightclub sort of place – but plenty eating out options. It was out first time there and we would certainly go back.
Any downsides? Really struggling to identify any but perhaps a free-standing fan in the kitchen would be nice in the summer months. It’s also a bit of a shame the master bedroom doesn’t have a proper double bed – it’s two singles pushed together. And, if you’d young children you would have to be very careful with the inside spiral staircase. But, other than that, this is a 9.8/10 villa.
Overall, this is a fantastic option for a large family or group; we were 6 adults and it was perfect for us. The drive from Palma airport if approx. 45min – 60min depending on time of day
Tony replied promptly to all queries and provided an airport taxi service for some of our group (for a fee); he also showed us round on arrival and was very friendly & helpful.
In summary: a great villa, great location – a great option.
The property was ideal for our party of 11, which consisted of 2 senior citizens, 4 adults and 5 young people aged from 11 to 17. The pool was large and clean, though obviously cold in February, but 8 of the party tried it out! It was warm enough to sit on the sun loungers for a while.
The property was very clean throughout, spacious and comfortable. It was up a short track from the main road, so was quiet, but was convenient for easy travel by car.
Toni was an excellent host. He was very approachable and helpful and replied quickly to any queries. When the water pressure dropped, he contacted plumbers immediately who came out within the hour to rectify the problem. He was also very helpful to us in solving a problem we had with our return boarding cards.
We would be very happy to return to this property. We had a great family holiday going to beautiful beaches, climbing mountains and doing other walking, including part of the Torrent de Pareis.
The only criticism I would make is that whilst there are plenty of enormous wine glasses and other glasses, there were only very small cups and 3 mugs if you wanted a decent-sized cup of tea!! We went to the Hiper shop in Santanyi and bought some cheap mugs, which we have brought home as souvenirs.
