The location of the property is indeed beautiful however the house was in need of maintenance and the owner did nothing to rectify problems and instead argued with us. The problems encountered were:
The main bedroom roof was leaking badly and directly onto a light fitting below. By the heavy staining on the ceiling and the lampshade it had obviously been doing this sometime. When we took this up with the owner she said she would get the local caretaker to look into this. He never showed up.
Bathroom towel rail hanging off wall and the loo seat was broken.
Curtain poles in bedroom and one in the living room were hanging from the wall.
The burglar alarm only worked occasionally. Even the lady who let us into the house had problems working this.
Finally the memory foam mattress in the main bedroom was worn out and very uncomfortable. We took this up with the owner whose response was no one had complained about it before so there couldn't be a problem. She said her caretaker would come and take a look. He didn't show up again! In fact he didn't even show up when we were due to vacate the property, despite having contacting him.
In short the property badly needs some attention and the mattresses in both the main bedroom and the double bedroom downstairs need to be replaced. It is not acceptable to provide grotty mattresses in a holiday rental at this price. The owner also needs to listen to her guests and not argue with them!
We have been lucky enough to stay at this property a few times over the last 5 years. We love the area for walking and exploring this quieter piece of Mallorca. The views are amazing. The 30 minutes walk down the valley through ancient olive groves and orange and lemon plantations is fabulous to arrive in the port or the village. We like also to take a sailing trip to Foradada for an amazing paella lunch at this secluded cliff restaurant. The casa is beautiful and it's lovely to stay in a solar powered house feeling we are doing our bit for the planet. The house has everything you will need, including a grand piano!! The pool is also a welcome place to cool down in the afternoon heat.
All in all our favourite place to stay in the area, we have already booked again to stay later in the year. Well done Claire and Ian...Don't change a thing!!!
This gorgeous cottage nestled in the most picturesque valley between the mountains and the sea is the perfect escape into peace and quiet and tranquility. I stayed here with my family for a week in March (the weather was hot!) and we had everything we needed and more. The house is cosy while the views from the living room and master bedroom are magnificent. We were well taken care of and even given a welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, wine, jam, etc. The pictures don´t do this house justice! We could relax and read to our hearts content, with nature all around us. And we went on many excursions to the surrounding towns and villages, as well as walks into the mountains and valley. This house is perfectly situated so that while close to everything, we still felt a world away. Our children loved exploring the olive terraces belonging to the house, while we enjoyed soaking up the sun on the terrace. We hope to return again next year!
We stayed at this peaceful cottage near Sóller and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were a group of 6 -- 4 adults and two children. The view of the mountains was spectacular and the terraces were great. We ate many meals al fresco and also enjoyed using the grill. The kids really enjoyed the splash pool. The house is a short drive from Sóller, the port, the beach, and Deia. We also enjoyed using the trail near the house and walked into town a few times. The kitchen has almost everything you need, especially for a rental home. The living room, bedrooms and bathrooms were good-sized and had everything you'd need in each room. There is wifi here, which was very handy. The solar power and generator worked very well. I like the eco-friendliness of the house. Claire and her local contact were both gracious and helpful. I highly recommend this house. It was the perfect get away for my family and my friend's family.
We spent two weeks in May/June 2012 there with our children (6/8). This unique house became our home direct we open the door! The interior ist more than beautiful and all was well tended. The different views from the 3 teraces are impressively. The house is located very silent however ideal for trips to Soller, Port de Soller or Deia. Our conclusion: the most beautiful house which we ever joined with the most beautiful an kindly landlady. Thank you very much, Claire!
We had a wonderful fortnight here. It is the most beautiful house, and really feels like your home the moment you step into it, and in one sense the house and grounds are so wonderful you barely have to leave. The scenery behind the house is simply stunning. It is also really well positioned, with enough excellent walks and short drives to fill a fortnight's break and more. We loved the house so much we found ourselves eating in quite a lot, but there are many fantastic places to eat within easy distance. It really is the perfect base for either an escape or a wonderful family holiday - can't recommend it high enough.
