Perfect location, very enjoyable
The Villa is tucked away in a nice location with Pollenca, and Alcudia a short drive away. The Villa itself is very nice and the owners very kind and helpful. The only couple of things that I would say could be improved is the shower, as the water comes either cold or boiling hot....it's virtually impossible to get a nice warm temp...didn't bother me too much but kids hated it. Also there is a pair of trees on the right of the pool that block the sun to the pool around 3.30-4pm which is a bit annoying as you want to keep warm jumping in and out of the pool.The pool itself is lovely and the villa has everything you need, nice bbq area, and very peaceful. Very enjoyable holiday.
Peaceful villa with super pool
This is a lovely peaceful villa in a rural area outside Pollença. The house is approached along a long, narrow driveway, and the surrounding roads are very quiet.
There's a well-furnished veranda on two sides of the house, with comfortable sitting and dining areas. We ate all our meals outside; the area has lighting, so it can be enjoyed into the evening. The pool is a good size and very well maintained.
Indoors there is a comfortable sitting/dining room, with modern TV etc, which we didn't use as we were outside. The kitchen is very pleasant, with all necessary equipment. The bedrooms are a good size, with efficient air conditioning; one of the twin rooms has an en-suite shower room.
The location is very convenient, with two supermarkets on the approach to Pollença (Lidl for economy, and Eroski for its superb fish counter). Pollença itself is a lovely old town. We used the free car park on the edge of town by the "cockerel" roundabout, and walked into the centre. We enjoyed the walk up the 365 steps (El Calvari).
There are plenty of lovely places and beaches a short drive away. Cala Vicenç deserves special mention for its turquoise waters and great snorkelling. We also enjoyed the walk to Cala Boquer from Puerto Pollença. The mountain scenery is superb.
We very much enjoyed our stay, and would love to come back some time.
great you have enjoyed your holiday in the villa,
many thanks for your comments and we look forward to see you again some time,
Quiet countryside setting
This is our 3rd visit to Juan’s villa and it is still a delight. The position is ideal for driving to Puerto Pollensa which we did every night and walked along the seafront. There are very good restaurants and bars to be found. The sea is very warm to swim in when you can tear yourself away from the pool which was extremely inviting. It has all the necessary amenities to have a very enjoyable and restful holiday. Juan is a very helpful host but not intrusive and I look forward to returning once again.
Dear Julie and family,
we are very happy you enjoyed your time in the villa once more.
Many thanks, we will love to see you all again.
Nice villa in great location
Our family, including 2 young boys, enjoyed staying here. Nice pool and good garden for the boys to play in.
We loved being a short drive from the beach at Port de Pollensa, whilst also being close to the lovely Pollensa town.
glad you enjoyed your stay,
Perfect Little Hideaway - Highly Recommended
We have returned from an amazing holiday at this villa. We have visited Pollensa many times over the last ten years, but this was by far the best villa we have stayed in, and we are hoping to return next summer.
From the moment we enquired we had great communication with the owner, Juan, our late arrival time was no problem, and the directions to the villa made it easy to find.
Arriving at midnight, it was lovely to get into the villa and find a welcome pack from Juan, which meant we could feed and water the kids and ourselves, and have food for breakfast to start the next day.
The villa has everything you need for the holiday, it's set in traditional Mallorcan style, and is kept clean and organised, with air con in all 3 bedrooms. What makes this villa so special though is the outside layout. A fantastic outdoor space for dining as well as an outdoor lounge area, perfect for relaxing but also a great space for the kids to be outdoors but stay in the shade. The garden is so tidy and pretty and has a lovely swing chair next to the barbeque, which we used a few times to host some of our family staying in a nearby hotel.
The pool is a good size and is partly shaded by the trees which is fabulous on the hotter days. Nice steps at the side meaning it's good for non-swimmers to paddle and for learners to safely get in and out of the water.
The villa itself is perfectly located for Pollensa, Port de Pollensa and Alcudia. If you've never visited Pollensa before, it's a brilliant location to base yourself for getting around this part of the island.
Tips - watch out for the sprinklers - they're on a timing system :) and I think the photos make the villa look smaller than it is, it's a really good size. Five of us stayed comfortably here.
Very glad you have enjoyed your stay in Pollensa and many thanks for your comments about it,
you would be allways wellcome,
best wishes for you all,
Everything we hoped for!
Just back from a fantastic stay at Juan and Maria's place. Communication was easy with good directions sent to us in advance and our planned late arrival no problem. Our flight was further delayed so a quick email sorted out how to let ourselves in in the early hours. Some food supplies were left for us which were much appreciated in the morning.
The villa was everything we hoped for and more. A really practical layout on one floor with two bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, and out the back a washing machine. Wifi worked well though don't expect to stream Netflix. There was also a DVD player, CD player and HD TV (only Spanish channels).
The pool was a highlight, despite it being only April. There are steps down into it, so younger children can paddle under supervision. We had planned in advance and took some cheap shorty wetsuits which were a good move given the water was still rather on the cool side! The large, quiet garden had plenty of space for the kids to run around and was a pleasure to laze about in.
There are two supermarkets, Lidl and Eroski, under 10 minutes drive away. The latter is open roughly 9am-9pm every day including Sundays. There was also a market in Pollensa on the Sunday 'til about 3pm.
The coast is a short drive away and you are well-positioned to visit the mountains too. Visiting the caves at Porto Cristo to the South was perfectly doable too. The roads all seemed well-maintained and easy to drive on, though be prepared for the many cyclists enjoying the island, especially in the mountains. Just take your time and give them plenty of room as you pass. Top tip: you can download the whole of Majorca in Google Maps as an offline area on your phone and use it for navigation when you're there without a data connection. This worked really well.
We really enjoyed our visit. In general we're not usually inclined to go on holiday to the same place more than once, but we are considering returning here just because everything was so easy and handy, leaving more time for enjoying ourselves and relaxing.
Thank you Juan and Maria!
Dear Jez and family,
very glad you have enjoyed your stay in Pollensa, you were a great guest and we would love to se you all again,
many thanks and best wishes,
Juan and Maria
