Just back from two weeks staying at this great house.
Just back from two weeks staying at this great house. It's pretty much exactly as it looks in the pictures! Lovely garden with fruit you can pick and use if it's in season. The pool was also used pretty much every day. Marga, the owner, is lovely. It really helped though that I've got 'okay' Spanish as otherwise it would have been all sign language. We saw her maybe 4 or 5 times over two weeks. She comes to maintain the pool and give the terrace a quick sweep but we never found it overbearing. She lives a few doors up and she will take care of the rubbish, once you separate it correctly and leave it in the outdoor bins. There are separating instructions provided; I found the collection schedule in the garage if you're interested. Kitchen is really well equipped with both crockery and pots/pans/utensils/gadgets etc. and we cooked regularly. However I would bring a supply of d/w tabs and condiments with you (inc. salt) as you wouldn't get thru whole packs on hols. There were only two negatives and they are completely out of the control of the owner - do not let it put you off this house! Firstly, there's a bit of ambient noise - the road looks like it's the middle of nowhere on the map, but it's quite busy in actuality. This is easily worked around by ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. In addition, and this seems to be fairly widespread across the island at the moment from what we can figure out - the mosquitoes! Basically, pack ear plugs and mosquito repellant/calamine lotion and you'll be fine. (Or we picked up a great trick for about 4 hours relief from the compulsion to scratch. Get a hot (not so hot it burns you obviously) damp flannel, place directly on the bite and leave it for about 15 seconds.) The house is about a 6 or 7 minute drive from Inca which has everything you need, including a train station if you don't want to drive all the way to Palma (€5.90 return) and also a great weekly market which takes over most of the town on Thursdays. We definitely recommend the house!
