About Janet & Michael Crabtree

I live in England with my husband Michael and youngest daughter Olivia We spend all of our holidays in Menorca where we have developed close relations with local ex-patriots and islanders alike. What we most like about the island is the laid back atmosphere and relaxed approach to life there.

Janet & Michael Crabtree purchased this villa in 1991

Why Janet & Michael Crabtree chose Alaior

We have been on holiday to Europe on many occasions always returning to Menorca and eventually purchasing our first "villa" in Cala En Porter. The village is very pleasant, not too noisy and has a good sandy beach. With only just over a 2 hour flight from UK, a good pollution free atmosphere and climate made it our choice for our second home. Five years later we purchased another villa [Casa Marion 10 Calle Tramontana] Just up the road from our first villa. The villa interior is modern and has a roof terrace with sea view. Casa Marion has an ample driveway should you choose to hire a car. Street parking only at the larger villa as the boat occupies the drive.

What makes this villa unique

Whilst our large villa that sleeps 8 is right in the heart of the village, yet it is still quiet, on the road out of the village. The smaller villa Casa Marion that sleeps 6 is on the outskirts of the village but still on the same road as the larger villa and is very quiet. At either villa you can close the gates and enjoy your privacy as they are both detached, walled and without shared facilities.WIFI as from 15/07/2016.

Have just returned from what can only be described as a fantastic family holiday!!!

Mike and Janet the owners have been extremely helpful in any questions we had, the curtain rail broke one evening and they ensured it was fixed by the following day.

The villa is lovely and clean with good facilities and well situated within the town. I would highly recommend this villa to any friends and family in the future.

Thanks both for allowing us to use lovely holiday home.

Owner's Response: Well, Thank you both for a fabulous review, I only found about the curtain rail this morning so can not take any credit for that, my villa management Lesley and Juan are my stars and deserve all the credit, we just sort out the bookings and speak to the guests on this side. Thank you so much for your glowing review. Mike & Janet Crabtree.

Just arrived back from a two week stay at this Beautiful Villa, and would like to thank Michael and Janet for letting us stay, the location is Perfect being only a Two Minute walk from all the Restaurants and supermarkets, the villa its self is Beautiful, clean and very accessible, the pool was stunning great size and very lovely especially in the 30 degree heat, I cannot find a bad word to say about the villa, pool or area, having been to Cala en porter 6 times and to Menorca 8 times I would not want to stay anywhere else but in This Villa, thank you for letting us stay and we can't wait to be back next year! 😃✈️ Also cleaning staff and pool maintenance staff are very polite and kind and made the experience all the nicer, and would recommend the Bar Samoa for food and either the Aloha bar for Karaoke or the Sa piazza for The Temptations Tribute.

We had a wonderful family holiday and everyone loved it! The resort, location and villa were perfect. We spent lots of time at the villa which is spacious, clean and well equipped. It's only a few miutes from the beach, bars and shops so everything is very accessible. Janet and Michael were extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed beforehand. We would highly recommend it.

Amazing holiday!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 2 week stay at Michael & Janet's villa. This is about the 4th time we have stayed here and as on previous occasions, we had a fantastic time. The villa is just about one of the best in Cala en Porter for it's locality. Hop across the crossing for amazing cocktails at Aloha, or nip down a block for proper traditional spanish cuisine at Bar Pons (also the pool here is amazing for a change of scenery one day!). We had staying with us, my grown up son's & daughters with their young children and they all had a ball. Never out of the pool almost every day. Did struggle slightly with the 10 month old as we couldn't let him crawl about the pool, too hard on his knees and mega hot (maybe some fake grass where the aggregate is hahaha!!!) but it didn't spoil our holiday in the slightest. As someone else has previously mentioned, I think Cala en Porter beach is by far the best, but visited Son Bou & Cala Galdana, both excellent beaches. The food cannot be faulted, plenty of variety and you cannot beat Sa Paissa for entertainment!!!! Would highly recommend Brasserie & Bar Dos Pablos, slightly pricier than most, but WELL worth it for a treat one night!!!! This villa is a fab choice for any family holiday, everything you could need, had 2 or 3 great bbq's in the evening around the pool!! Thanks Mike & Janet, we will no doubt be back xx Michelle & Chris Darby

Owner's Response: Michelle, We are so pleased you had another great holiday at our villa, so happy you all enjoyed yourselves. As you know already we like to receive guest reviews as it gives us another dimension and also another families view and take on what they see as sometimes we can be blinkered to what the villa needs. So pleased with the feedback. Regards, Michael & Janet Crabtree

What an absolutely LOVELY week we had! Thank you family Crabtree for letting us experience your home from home.

So accessible yet private. It took 10 or 15 minutes to get by taxi from the airport to the Villa and cost very little; in fact within half an hour of landing we were in the pool! Who could ask for more?

We did! We wanted beautiful beaches and we got them by the score! We trooped around the island hopping to various gorgeous beaches but by far our best and favourite was Cala En Porter. What a peaceful, stylish and picturesque spot. How I wish we were still there snorkelling around the caves now! Safe for kids and elderly as friendly lifeguard always to hand, hired a Pedallo on which we circled the stylish yachts and boats anchored in the bay and slid down the slide like kids!! :)

The Villa pool was a 'wow' especially for the youngest daughter, never bored, she was in it before we went out and on our return, she would have stayed there all day. Also plenty of outside space for badminton fun, my elder daughter was also inspired to do her yoga on the cool verandah each morning!

The spotless villa had everything, little extras left like condiments, suncreams, pool toys, dvds, books etc to make life easier and more homely. Cooking facilities were great with an outside BBQ too, though I must confess we didn't use it as there are so many good restaurants nearby.

Two bathrooms and an outside shower brilliant! Great that the master suite is on the opposite side to the other 3 bedrooms, adds to privacy for all. in fact the layout makes it ideal for mixed families or age groups to share. Feel a bit 'saddo' saying this but I will.... I actually enjoyed doing the washing, as machine located outside and it all dried so quickly. Ha ha!

Don't miss the market in Mahon and a wander down to the harbour, do stop at the patisseries on the way down, delicious and for nothing! Another fun morning was had Go Karting, will have to return to go horse riding.

Overall I would say Menorca and Cala En porter has something for all age groups. We could have managed without a car as public transport is modern and reliable. I could happily go back and not leave the village all week, just pottering to the beach, shops, bars (Aloha Bar watch the power of the cocktails) and restaurants. Everything dubs down around midnight for a peaceful sleep.

Sun up brisk walks and sun down glorious strolls! Ahhhhhhh....

Okay..... me thinks it's time to get planning for next summer... xxxx
