Overview

About the property

Traditional Villa in Binisafua, Nr Binibeca - with Private Pool & Sea Views. WiFI avail. Holds Official Menorcan Tourist Authority Licence.

Only 75 metres from the sea, this idyllic villa is in a quiet residential area, without all the usual trappings of a holiday resort. A sandy beach is only a 10min walk away, and a great tapas bar is within a 5min stroll. A 15min coastal walk will bring you to the picturesque village of Binibeca, so this villa enjoys a marvellous location for those wishing to leave the hustle and bustle (and car!) behind. However, a short 5km drive or bus ride will bring you to the capital of Mahon, with it's great nightlife, restaurants and shops.

This secluded villa, with private pool, has a covered gazebo for outdoor dining, as well as shelter from the sun - and the covered porch is ideal for relaxing on balmy evenings and enjoying the sea view. In addition, there is a delightful totally private walled courtyard, ideal for intimate dining, or a quiet breakfast!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just dropping you a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our week at your beautiful villa. We loved every minute of our stay and we are seriously thinking of booking again for next year. I have stayed at many villas and this has to be the best I have stayed at." A.Tharp.

"Thank you very much for allowing us to rent your villa. It is truly wonderful in design, decoration, location... in fact it had everything we needed for a great holiday." B.Pearson

"The villa was fantastic - just what we were looking for - clean, great bathrooms and kitchen - We had such a relaxed holiday - swimming in the pool, wandering down to the sea shore - swimming off the rocks at the end of the road - or diving off the rocks into the bay. All in all excellent!"

Character property in quiet location close to the sea

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with a great pool for swimming. Joyce, the owner couldn't be more helpful with great communication and a great local team to support her. We had a good relaxing time here with some nice local beaches that provided fantastic snorkeling. Good restaurant within a few minutes walk, but need to book at busy times. Look forward to returning.

Lovely villa in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We have visited Menorca many times but this was our first stay in this part of the island. The villa has a great location. Secluded and quiet. A few yards to the seafront with a lovely beach and cove a short walk in one direction and the stunning village of Binnebecca in the other with its restaurants and shops. The gas barbecue was great. We used it on several occasions, very quick to heat up and cook. The villa easily accommodated our extended family and the air conditioning was a real benefit on hot days and nights. The villa is very comfortable and tastefully furnished with a good level of equipment, but it is a little 'tired' in some places. Unfortunately one of the showers was stuck on cold but Jayne was easy to contact and made every effort to sort this out for us as well as recommending some less 'touristy' but great places to eat. All in all, a lovely quiet villa in a beautiful location, we hope to be back again.

Great place for a peaceful relaxed break to recharge the batteries.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to forget everything and shut off. Peaceful and ideal for us to recharge but also great for the kids to swim and snorkel. Everything you need at the Villa if you want to stay away from the main stream and Jayne was great when we arrived and left. I would highly recommend.

Lovely characterful villa, with great outdoor area, established garden, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in the Binibeca area but this time our location was brilliant - 5-10 mins coastal walk in one direction to Binisafuller beach, and the same in the other direction into Binibeca Vell for restaurants and bars.

The pool is perfect - very deep which was our girls loved for practising their diving. Kept beautifully clean by the pool man visiting twice a week.

Gas BBQ is great and so much easier than the traditional type...! Go to Sa Botega S'Uestra for lovely cheeses meats, breads, fruit & veg.

We had lots of fun exploring other local beaches, Cales Coves, Es Castell & Mahon Marina.

Our friends booked through a generic villa company (paying a lot more) and were so jealous when they visited ours!

THANK YOU!

Great villa in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Very good villa, very near to the sea. We walked to a great snorkeling spot in 5min,with a beach 5 min in the other direction. Villa had all amenities, pool was great and the gas barbecue made cooking outside simple. Loved Menorca in general and had a great time in this lovely spot.

Fun holiday at Casa Delfin

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely two weeks in Menorca and found the villa to match the description and pictures as well as previous reviews. The local management team were very friendly and helpful during our stay and the villa was clean upon arrival. There are a few maintenance bits that should be sorted (cabinets in the kitchen and a couple sun beds need fixing and the electrics can be a bit twitchy) - but apart from those we had a very comfortable stay. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was welcome to keep the mosquitos away during the night and we all had comfortable sleeps. The location is perfect for walking to the beach or into the village and we rented a car to get to our other favourite spots. A perfect location for our holiday. The communication with Joyce prior to arrival was helpful and the keys were mailed to us before we left home - which meant we didnt have to wait for anyone when our flight got in very late. Bring mosquito spray - they come out in the evenings! We would definitely think about staying again if we needed a villa this size in the future. Having beach chairs at the villa to use would be a nice added benefit for the owners to consider as many of our favourite beach spots do not have sunbeds to rent. Our daughter loved the pool - it stays quite warm and is very refreshing on a hot day. Having a welcome pack of food essentials was a nice touch and saved us as we arrived late Saturday and most of the shops are closed on the Sunday. We had a great stay, Thank you!

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The sea is only 75m away, and there is some great swimming off the rocks. Snorkelling is a must! The sandy cove of Binisafuller Playa is only 8-10 mins walk along a coastal path, and the larger beach of Binibeca is about 20 mins by foot or 5 mins by car.

Travel:

Mahon Airport - 8km. Mahon town/ferry port - 5km. To fully explore the island of Menorca, which is only 35miles long and 9miles wide, we recommend that you hire a car, although there is a bus service from Binibeca that will take you most of the main towns.

Distances:

Binibeca is only 12-15 mins walk away. Sant Lluis only 3km. Mahon - 5km. Mahon Airport - 8km drive away.

Further Details:

A full 'Welcome Pack', including details of restaurants, places to visit, and practical notes, will be sent in advance of your stay. "Essentials", such as milk, bread, butter, etc, will be provided on arrival.

Other info:

Supermarkets: nearest - Binibeca; best (in our opinion!) - S'Uestra; biggest - Sant Lluis Business Park.

Activities:

The Menorca Cricket Club is approx 4km drive away, and plays most Sundays throughout the summer. Local UK clubs visit regularly, and visitors are always welcome. For more information, visit their website: "www.menorcacricketclub.com".

Fiestas: every weekend in a different town throughout the summer. Ask Tourist Information for details.

Menorca has the highest concentration of archealogical sites in the Mediterranean, with approx 2000 sites in about 702 sq.km. There are also several nature reserves to satisfy ornithologists and hikers alike.
