Fantastic place, ideal for 2 couples! Great value! Mallorca is heaven.
We stayed at Casa Marti for 2 weeks in early October, and loved it. It was easy to find, close to Pollenca and Port de Pollensa, on a quiet country lane (a cami).
The house was clean and well equipped, with a great kitchen, a small dining area for 4 in the kitchen, a den with comfy couches, and a huge sheltered area across the yard beside the pool. The pool was terrific and we used it every day. There was a terrace off the second floor bedroom where we could sit at night and watch the stars (it was amazingly dark). There were two bathrooms, with terrific hot water pressure.
The hosts were very pleasant and had a long list of helpful suggestions about shopping and dining in the region. They responded immediately when we had a power outage one afternoon.
Shopping in the markets in Pollenca, and Port de Pollensa was terrific, and there were well supplied supermarkets (Eroski and Lidl) close by. Mallorcan wine is readily available at both supermarkets and is inexpensive and very good.
The beaches at Port de Pollensa are very close - a modest walk or a very short cycle away. Access to the whole island is rapid by car.
The cycling in the area is beyond amazing. There are mountains for the nutters, hills, and endless winding flat lanes. Roads are almost all in perfect condition and many have wide shoulders, with a lot of designated cycle lanes. Bikes (road, hybrid, mountain, cruiser) are easy to rent from any of many, many agencies ( we recommend Bike Island Mallorca in Port de Pollensa). The roads are narrow, but the drivers are attentive and patient. Speed limits for cars are very reasonable, and we never felt unsafe, even on bigger roads, or when toiling up a climb.
Downsides?.... the TV reception is poor, but we almost never turned it on. The net reception dies outside unless you are by the den window, but is fine inside.
We VERY highly recommend this rental!!!
We will be back.
Absolutely lovely and only a few mins from Puerto Pollensa
A superb villa with lovely pool, plenty of toys for in and out of pool.
Lovely, quiet location with gardens and all facilities wanted in a villa were provided. Kitchen well equipped and bathrooms very good. Needed air conditioning as provided, which was a god send.
Beautiful area of Mallorca well worth the stay
Hi Brian, Thanks for taking the time out to write the review. It's great to know you had such a good stay at the villa. Hopefully we hear from you again. All the best, Craig
beautiful small villa
Beautiful little villa in lovely area just outside Puerto Pollensa. We were unlucky to have very wet, stormy weather which caused dampness in our downstairs bedroom. All forgotten when the hot sun came out. Otherwise I would have given this house 5 stars. The owners were very helpful and restaurant suggestions were brilliant.
Thank you for taking the time out to write the review. I'm relieved that you managed to get at least a bit of sun during what was without doubt the week of the worst rains I have experienced in Pollensa in the ten years I've been here. For anyone reading this - September is regarded as the best month of the year - with the blistering heat of August having faded but still plenty warmth, both out and in the sea, and less crowds. Sadly this particular week was not that at all. In case of an misinterpretation, it's worth mentioning that the dampness issue mentioned, as a result of the storms, effected many houses in the same way. Almost everyone I know in Pollensa suffered leaks or dampness issues of some form. Nevertheless, we did get the builder to come to the villa and check whether there was any fault at the house, and it was confirmed that there wasn't. For extra peace of mind though we did add a product on the stonework to help repel excess moisture. It really was a week of freak storms. We are keeping an eye on this and can report that despite the equally torrential rains of early October, the house has managed to remain damp free. Thanks again for coming Kathryn, I hope the weather didn't put you off a return to the island, and that you make it back another time. Glad to hear you liked our restaurant suggestions. All the best, Craig, Agustina and Marti.

Perfect house for our familiy. Nice, charming and well equipped, with fantastic pool. Kids loved it.
We stayed in Casa Marti last two weeks. House has very good location between Pollenca and Port de Pollenca so it gives plenty of opportunities. We are very happy that we spent some time in this place - it was just great and Agustina and Craig are very heplful. We plan to come back to this place in the future!!
Thank you for taking the time to write the review. It's great to read you had such a good stay. I hope you can make it back another time. All the best, Craig and Agustina.
Great place to stay
Just arrived back from a week at the villa. Such a quiet place to stay and perfect for our family to get away from it all but still have the delights of Pollença next door. The villa is really well laid out and works really well. The pool is fantastic. Spotlessly clean and great for the children to learn to swim in and cool off in.
We had never been to Mallorca before but thought Pollença was fantastic and great just sitting in the square watching the world go by.
Thank you for a lovely week away.
Hi Rupert, That's great to read you had such a nice holiday. Thanks for taking the time out to write the review. It's really appreciated. All the best, we hope to hear from you again sometime, Craig, Agustina and Marti.
