the headline: a great villa, if you want to stay in this area, highly recommended.
It's located in quiet backstreet at the southern end of the main built up part of Playa De Muro, in a small gated plot shared with 3 other houses (though the pool does seem to be only shared with one other villa). Although it's a 'back road', it's only a 5 minute walk to a couple of small but reasonable supermarkets (both open to the evening on Sundays), and only a minute or two further to the beach. If you are interested in the nature reserve you are literally 300m of walking from the entrance though the visitor centre is a further kilometer inside the reserve.
Playa de Muro itself is a fairly unexciting resort, although the beach is really quite nice and there's a selection of restaurants along the main road some of which looked reasonable; we did like Smith's Bar which was about a mile away so walking distance.
For visiting further afield, Polencia was around 30 minutes drive and worth an afternoon visit; even Playa Formentor was about 45 minutes (depending on traffic through Alcudia) and from there it's possible to get a bus to the Cap for just a couple of euros each way (driving yourself seems to be forbidden between 10am and 7pm in the summer - to be honest there's very few places to stop on the route, you'll see more from the bus). Even Cuevas Del Drach at Porto Cristo were only an hour away.
As for the villa itself, when we arrived at 4.30 we found Sandra and her assistant still beavering away cleaning the outside area. It seemed the previous occupants had left it somewhat untidy, but we could see no sign of this at all - everything was very clean. It's not a huge villa, but the living area was large enough for the four of us, with plenty of room at the dining table. The outside area comfortably seats 6 for dining and lounging. The compact kitchen is well equipped with a decent dishwasher and washing machine and there's an airer for hanging the laundry. The bedrooms are a good size with storage. And, very useful in the summer months, all the air conditioning units (each bedroom, & living area) worked very well. Sandra is a gracious host who is obviously very proud of her villa, and the wine and fruit welcome gift was gratefully received. Thank you Sandra for a great week!
We are a family of 6 adults and stayed for a week in September. The villa is very well appointed and in a good location. 5 minutes to the beach and nearest supermarkets. There are a few restaurants within 5 minutes but keep walking towards Alcudia and within 15 minutes there are loads. Pool is quite small and shared but there was no-one else there when we were staying. Sandra is very helpful and will answer any queries you have.
Just returned ( yesterday ) from a fabulous 2 weeks , The villa was absolutely stunning and Sandra was the perfect host. The welcome pack from Sandra was much appreciated and the villa was spotlessly clean. Very close to the beach and local amenities and Sandra gave us a taxi number who was very reliable. Located close to the villa was quite a few bus stops and it didn’t take us long to find the bus that takes you into Alcudia. We have 2 girls aged 12 and 7 and these really enjoyed the pool that the villa had to offer , although it’s a shared pool the villa next door was empty for the first 12 days and when a family eventually arrived the pool was big enough for everyone. A fantastic holiday was had by all and would definitely consider going back again!!
Me and my family went for a week holiday in this villa, our group was made up of 2 adults and 4 children ranging from 5 -16. My son has autism and it’s always scary booking holidays that will meet his needs but this villa was amazing. Pool was perfect, everything was clean and indoor/outdoor areas were comfortable and accommodating. Sandra the owner of the villa was superb, very approachable and visited the villa to check we were ok. The villa was immaculate, very clean and very spacious for the 6 of us. Really close to local supermarkets and restaurants and hotels. We went to the iberostar on the Main Street for entertainment for a few nights which was fantastic and all the family enjoyed. Highly recommend this villa.. hope to return soon.
This is one of the best places to rent at one of the most wonderful locations in Mallorca.
Spotlessly clean. Fantastic owner helpful and friendly.Comfortable beds.Beautiful terrace.A relaxing and cosy home from home and although there is a pool you are five minutes from the best beach,shops and amenities.
I would recommend this house all year round. Just beautiful and I have taken away the best memories from my two visits. Sandra thank you for everything!
