Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This property was a great find. In a really quiet street, but within a few minutes walk of all the shops and restaurants in Pollenca.
The house is very tastefully furnished, of high quality, had every facility that we could need, but still retains its Mallorcan character.
The owner was incredibly helpful throughout in making sure that our stay was as good as it was.
Can’t recommend this property highly enough - it was perfect!!
A Fantastic Family Holiday
A lovely house in a great location. All of the family enjoyed our stay in Sasha’s house in the heart of Pollença.
Gorgeous house, great location
It's difficult to add to the previous reviewers' superlatives; this is probably one of the best houses we have rented in Pollensa, and in the top 3 of rentals anywhere. Apart from the lovely decor and furnishings, everything is provided for a relaxing stay, including a welcome bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival, all cleaning products and white goods, hand soap in the bathrooms, pool towels, corkscrews, knives that were actually sharp, etc. We only left the house to do some shopping on our first day, and late every evening to eat out. The rest of the time we relaxed by/in the plunge pool and on the terraces. The views are great (you can even just glimpse the sea from the upper terrace). It's about a ten minute walk to the bus stop (from/to Palma Intermodal station, with only the last 3 minutes up a steepish hill). The place was very quiet apart from some yappy neighbouring dogs (kept in at night and most of the day). The only things that would give this a 12/10 would be some cushions on the sunloungers and some shade over the outdoor table and chairs - which are in full sun from around 2pm, just when we wanted to have lunch. A small table on the bedroom sofa terrace would have been good, as the footstool tables from the upper terrace weren't really firm enough for cups/glasses. The wifi dropped in and out of connection, but Sasha responded very quickly and helpfully. These are very very minor points though. Communication with Sasha before and during our stay was excellent and we had a fabulous, relaxing timeand would definitely return.
Super Property in a Great Location
Super townhouse, in a quiet street but within a few minutes walk of all the restaurants, bars, cafes and shops you’d want or need for a relaxing holiday.
We had a lovely week in Sashas house - it is beautifully decorated, well equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
There are plenty of different areas in the house to relax and chill - I particularly enjoyed the top terrace in the early morning with a book - and then later in the day with a sundowner! The upper terraces off the main bedroom are much bigger than expected and are beautifully designed offering great views across to the Calvari Steps and beyond.
Sasha provided lots of great information and tips beforehand about Pollensa- which were particularly useful since we were only there for a week and it was our first time in Mallorca. We particularly loved the Panaderia and the fish shop - where we found everyone to be extremely helpful. We hired a car for the week and were lucky to get it parked in the street on our return. The roads are narrow through Pollensa so I would recommend small cars for ease of manoeuvring.
Sasha is the perfect owner who is always available to help with any questions. We arrived earlier to Pollensa than the check in time and Sasha phoned/emailed us to tell us when the house was ready so that we didn’t have to wait around longer than necessary- which after an early flight was much appreciated.
We had a fantastic family week with our daughter and would definitely recommend Sashas house to anyone considering a visit to Pollensa.
Had a great week in Pollenca. The house is on the North Western side of town, about 1/3 of the way up a steep lane running parallel to the Calvari steps. It is a short walk (2 minutes) down to Placa Seglars for cafes, bars and the little supermarket, and another minute to Placa Major for a wider range of eateries and shops. There is a busy market on Sundays.
The house is lovely. Smart white walls, tiled/wooden floors and some lovely furniture. The front door opens onto a large atrium with a dining table for 6 to one side and off which is a small kitchen (hob, oven microwave, toaster & fridge/freezer) and a WC/shower. Further on is a cosy sitting area with arm chair, sofa, TV and hi-fi. Beyond that are stairs to the 2 double bedrooms, stairs to the small twin bedroom, and another sitting area looking out onto the pool, where there are sun loungers and another dining table. The pool is small. Big enough for a cooling dunk but not for a swim.
The upstairs bedrooms are large with lovely four-poster beds. The main bedroom has a door out to the balcony where there are 2 sitting areas.
The whole house is well air-conditioned.
We would recommend a stay here to anyone and would come back ourselves.
One thing to be aware of (if hiring a car or coming by taxi)….is that it is very difficult to get a vehicle to the door. The streets of Pollenca are very narrow in places, narrower still with cars parked on one side. The nearest parking is on Carrer de la Mare Alberta, which is about 700m away up or down quite a steep slope.
The village is lovely though with a very traditional feel and a wonderful relaxed night-life. The walk up Puig de Maria is well worth it, as is the view from the top of the Calvari steps. Enjoy.
Great property in an ideal location
Really lovely property it has everything you need to make you feel at home. Outside pool area is lovely and the terrace leading off the main bedroom is an added bonus and much larger than we expected. Its set in an ideal location within a 5 min walk you are in the heart of Pollensa with all its bars, restaurants and shops. One small minor detail we felt it was missing is an outside BBQ, but it didn't detract from a wonderful holiday. Thank you
The nearest beaches are Puerto Pollensa and Cala St Vincens which are both a ten minute taxi ride/drive away.
45 minute drive / taxi ride from Palma airport.
