About the property

Villa in Cala'n Porter, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Easy To Find

Casa Vista is easy to find. Surrounded by white walls and greenery for privacy. Air-conditioned villa with a light bright feel and high standards are maintained throughout. Perfect to get away and explore this beautiful island. The village of Calan Porter is long and narrow but you could quite easily walk from one end to another in 30 mins, so the village centre is a 10 to 15 min walk. The villa itself has 3 double bedrooms all en suite. There is an open plan lounge kitchen with sat. TV receiving English channels and the villa is fully equipped with everything you need for that perfect break. Car hire is recommended but not essential for the fit and active.

About Ron Barnes

Way back in the 1980s we first visited the island, staying with friends in their villa here in Calan Porter. It was then that we like so many others fell in love with this beautiful island. After a few more visits and a couple of years had passed we decided to buy a plot of land and build our first villa. The villa Casa Vista was completed in the early 1990s and used by family and friends for some great summer holidays. In the mid 1990s our circumstances changed in the UK so we decided to sell up and move to Menorca buying another villa and swimming pool cleaning business, it is since then we have let Casa Vista with Owners Direct website and added others to our portfolio.

Ron Barnes purchased this villa in 1993

Thanks Lesley and Ron for a fantastic holiday. The villa was easy to find from the instructions provided. The walk into the centre took us just 10 minutes which we enjoyed. We arrived at the villa at about 9pm and was thrilled with the welcome pack provided for us. It included all essentials and even a bottle of wine (thoroughly enjoyed)

There are several supermarkets in the resort centre that offer free delivery . We made use of this service and had all our groceries delivered direct to the villa.

There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in the resort. We tried somewhere different every night and enjoyed all of them .q

The villa is very spacious and well maintained through out. The villa was as described and very clean and tidy. The pool is excellent and is large enough to do some decent swimming in . We used the pool every day. We were visited by the owners twice during our visit and we had their contact details in case we needed to contact them in between.

The air conditioning was a god send keeping our bedroom lovely and cool as the weather was hot during our stay

Thanks again Lesley for allowing us to remain at the villa until we departed for the airport on our last day. This was a real bonus.

We will definitely return to this villa again, hopefully in the not so distant future

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic stay at Casa Vista. The villa is clean and equipped with everything you need. The pool was great -the kids were in it as often as possible! Inside, it was plenty spacious for 5 with good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. The lounge and kitchen were fine for our requirements. Outside, the BBQ area was good and used to cook some good burgers purchased from the local SPAR (also recommended).

The only reason I wouldn't give 5 stars was the location-not because it was too far to walk into town as we enjoyed the evening stroll for our meals (although I would recommend a car for food shopping and going to the beach)- it was because the villa is on one of the few roads in the town where traffic flows both ways. Don't get me wrong, it's not the M6 outside, it's a quiet town and I wouldn't have said the noise was intrusive, but I would have liked it quieter at times.

P.S. Lovely welcome pack in the fridge and personal visit from Lesley, the owner, was a nice touch.

Owner's Response: Glad you all had a fantastic stay at Casa Vista and the villa met your requirements. We always welcome constructive guests comments, it helps us maintain our high levels of service and standards, so you may be interested to know that since your stay in May the villa has been fitted with new double glazed windows and patio doors removing any slight outside noise. Hope you will return to this or one of our other properties one day.

Fantastic Time

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Lesley we had a fantastic time, the villa was all that we hoped for, really clean and tidy and the welcome pack a bonus as we arrived late in the day. The kids spent all day and every day in the pool. Hope to see you again in the autumn.

Not a Recommended

  • 2 of 5

Was interested to see that you are now able to write reviews on this website, have long thought it was a much needed feature.

Personally would not recommend this villa. It's simply depressing. It needs some love and attention. Found it dirty and grubby. Large spiderwebs which had obviously been there a LONG time. A basket of fake flowers on the table may have looked clean and nice 25years ago but certainly not now! The bedding and towels nearly made me sick everytime they were required as it was obvious they were dried in direct contact with a very heavy smoker and just stank, not suitable for use with my four and five year old! Found owners, not interested in concerns and on one occasion the man even rude. I could go on and on but I am sure you get the message, dirty, smelly and run down! Will not be going back to this villa or recommending it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Disappointed to read your review of our property, especially after several e mails prior to booking when amongst the questions we clearly made you aware of our contact details. The cleaning of the villa and including the laundry is done by myself and neither Ron or myself smoke so there is no way that it could have smelt of tobacco. I would have visited you shortly after your arrival to check that all is well and you stayed at the villa for 2 weeks therefore there would have been a change of linen midway so you would have had plenty of opportunity to make me aware of any problems had you had done so they would have been put right at the time. I have no notes of any such problems being discussed. I disagree with you about the villa being depressing as it is bright and airy with white walls and high ceilings, and as for not being cared for I can promise you we do care and are never rude to guests.

Casa Vista - Menorca

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family stayed at Casa Vista at the end of September 2013. The villa itself is comfortable, cosy and spacious. There were 6 of us ranging from ages 16 to 70 and it was my in laws first trip abroad and the villa contributed to a wonderful holiday experience, so thank you Ron and Lesley.

Casa Vista review

  • 4 of 5

Great villa - exactly as described on the website and just what we were looking for. Very clean and well maintained.

The fridge was stocked with some essentials on arrival which was a really nice touch.

About a 10 - 15 min walk into Calen Porter with a great range of restaurants and the lovely chid friendly beach.

We would definitely return to this villa.
