Instigation for the trip was in recognition of my wife's special birthday which she wanted to celebrate with the whole family. Unfortunately, with 3 grandchildren still at school, this meant putting it off to the hottest, most expensive time of the year but it all turned out to be a tremendous success. The villa and its beautiful gardens are on multiple levels which makes it really spectacular, if something of a challenge, but all of the facilities - air-conditioning, outdoor eating, relaxation, barbecues, loungers and a large swimming pool with adjacent showers, toilets and well-stocked fridge - provide for all capabilities. During the booking process, Lenka was very responsive and Juan provided support throughout, especially with advice at the end of our stay for visiting Palma. The memories will linger long!
Went with 10 other family members. Beautiful villa but needed a little updating. However the agent took on board the problems we found and dealt with them.
What one can't see from the photos is the steepness of the site. I counted 51 steps in the villa alone and there were probably double that from top to bottom.in the lovely garden. So if like me you have a problem with steps it could be difficult.
We didn't park our cars in the garage as the approach was too steep. Fortunately there is adequate parking outside.
The basement bedrooms don't have any hanging or little drawer space . However there is a space under the stairs that could be used if the owners did something with it. All the bedrooms now have air conditioning as the last ones were fitted with it in our first week much to our grandchildren's relief.
Whatever the problems we did enjoy staying there and they could be easily resolved.
This is a large detached electric gated holiday villa positioned in a quiet cul-de-sac.
A short walk to a couple of restaurants, sea, child park & small shop, Our party of 11 enjoyed the spacious accommodation and pool area which is located up a few steps from the garden which we found safe for young children, We were glad we hired a car to visit the lovely beach & bars of Alcudia Port but only a short taxi ride 6-7 eur.The bedroom layout suited the demographics of our party-teenagers in 2 x twin rooms on lower floor, young children near their parents on middle floor a double on the ground floor & a double on the top floor. We found the villa very clean & communication between the agent & owner excellent when we had a query re the utilities. The large BBQ-outside dinning was used extensively.Part of the group travelled from the airport to Alcudia Port by A32 bus,only 4 stops which took about 1 hour, Would definitely return for a family holiday,
We were 3 families with 1year old baby and 4year old each. The house was lovely and very well set up. Pretty much just made use of the outdoor eating and the bbq every day. The pool wasnt heated but didnt matter. The kids were in there for hours each day. It is a deep pool but with arm bands, inflatable rings lilos the kids were all very happy.
There is a small but perfectly formed beach just down the road (5-10min walk). Its nice sand, no loungers, calm sea and can snorkel and see fish easily. There is a beach cafe there too which again was very nice. I was very pleased there were things that we could walk to without getting everyone into the cars.
Big supermarket was a short drive and the big beaches in Alcudia and Port de Pollenca were short drives.
Really loved it.
There are lots of steps in the house as it is on so many levels so just to be aware of. We had 3 babies all crawling or coasting so just had to be very careful making sure they didnt make a break for the nearest step.
The basement rooms are a bit less pretty but it was fine-only used for sleeping so made no difference.
The agent was also very nice and helpful.

We arrived and met curro he showed us around . Lovely clean and big enough for us all to have a bit of space . We travelled with 2 other families . We all ended up with our own bathroom and a spare one and a bonus shower and toilet under the pool !
Basement bedrooms were in need of wardrobes , and was damp , had a humidifier on constantly..recommended by curro . Emptied it 2 /3 times a day
Pool was lovely ..could of done with a spash of paint around but again nice and clean .
Cleaners came on the sat of our two week stay and changed beds towels and bathrooms . Lovely job . Pool was cleaned twice whilst we were there and gardeners cut the lawn . .
Little shop close by , prices not too bad .
Bar by the sea was great .
Small beach but lovely .
Kids loved the pontoon !
The hotel president is just by the beach and ideal as most of your trips you book pick up from here . (No frills trips...we left a leaflet in the pack )
Bus stop ...not great times . Best to use taxis ..€6-7 into port alcudia and about €8-10 alcudia
Supermarket €7-9 ..mercadona
Alcudia old town €6
Not too bad . They add a extra euro for picking up from a address and if you put anything in the boot .
Air conditioning in bedrooms was a blessing .
Barbque was great . Used that a few times . Outside dinning was lovely .
Plenty of sun beds available but a few were broke .
Overall a lovely area ..quiet and felt like upmarket area .
We all had a wonderful time would recommend for a large group that didn't mind being slightly out of town .
A hire car may be a option
