Thanks for facilitating our stay in this beautiful house
We were very lucky to be the first people to rent this beautiful, old Mallorcan style house through Airbnb. Our hostess, Lourdes, was there to welcome us and show us around the property, and she had thought of everything, including games and inflatables for the pool, a welcome basket of food and drink (as well as cold drinks and fresh fruit in the fridge). The house itself is stunning, lots of lovely period details and little personal touches that the photos just do not show, but in no way make you feel like you’re invading someone’s home. Everywhere was spotlessly clean; there were soft, fluffy towels provided (for the pool as well as the bathrooms), as well as some toiletries, tissues, etc. The kitchen has everything you need for self-catering—including that holiday kitchen essential: a dishwasher. The grounds of the house are huge and totally surround the property, giving you total privacy. There are plenty of shady places to sit or lounge about and a few different seating areas, including one next to the barbecue and a dining table just outside the front door. The pool is not huge, but big enough for a little exercise and a vital cool-down (while never being too cold!) Location-wise the house is not far from Palma, and the small town nearby, Santa María del Camí, has a little supermarket and lots of places to eat and drink if you fancy a night off cooking. However, we decided to make use of the barbecue most nights so can’t really recommend any (there is a list of places to try in the house though). There’s also a lovely vineyard down the road (Mallorca’s third biggest, I think), where you can sample some of their wines as well as taking a tour. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here. There is a small amount of traffic noise from the main road to the front of the property, but really not enough to disturb the general peace and tranquillity. You’ll need a car for getting about, but you’ll probably be content with spending a few days just relaxing around the house and garden.
