Spacious villa with huge pool by sandy beach,coastal walks & local restaurants.

Overview

Property

Updated: 22-Nov-2016
A great house from which to explore our stunning beach and coastline voted the best in the Balearics by The Sunday Telegraph!

Ours is not a 'book the villa and then sort yourselves out" holiday experience'. We work hard to make your stay a wonderful holiday experience for you all with personalised care and service. In our price we include all the essential basics in the bathrooms and kitchen plus we offer a get you started shopping service so your holiday starts from the word go. The turnaround time is tight, but our team works very hard to have everything ready and waiting for your 1. p.m arrival. We kindly ask our guests to depart for the trip back home by 10.00 a.m.

There is no workable Satellite TV in the area, but in the games room we have a video and DVD library.

For the energetic, or competitive, there are magnetic darts (sorry but Elf & Safety no pointy bits), table tennis and table top football, but most importantly it is somewhere the kids can chill out poolside away from the mid-day sun. The upstairs teddy bear room is also a haven of toys and things to do for little ones when it is too hot outside! The poolside bar and dining areas are perfect for you all to get together al fresco and the roof terrace offers a magnificent platform to relax in comfort "see the sea" or just toast any incoming holiday flights. The hugely stocked kitchen allows handy access to the BBQ and second dining area. All bedrooms are spacious, comfy with crisp cotton sheets and 2 fluffy pillows per person, and colour themed with a loving touch to brighten the holiday. We call this our ship! A stern full of bedrooms and a bow full of space to have fun when back from our sandy beach or diving and swimming off the coastal swimming platform just down from us!

Eddi Fiegel, travel writer for TheSunday Telegraph says of our beach which is one minute walk from our house "If your idea of beach-side heaven is a secluded cove laced with pristine, silky white sand, knotted pines and clear,teal water,look no further than Binisafua".

Bikes can be hired to explore the coastal pathways, or for the more energetic the whole island. Menorca has invested heavily in many cycle paths.

Hi Sarah



I am sorry not to have replied to you earlier. We didn't mind at all meeting you on our last day and in fact it is nice to put a face to a name.



From the moment we arrived when Lu met us at the airport and when we left we felt it was an well run holiday with all worries taken away.



We had a great holiday at your villa. You have thought of everything a holidaymaker needs and more. The older grandchildren loved getting up early and playing in the teddies' room til we emerged but they were a little young for the games room and although we thought to watch films in there we ended up only using the washing machine.

We thought your nearest beach was the best to stroll along to and then stop off for tapas for lunch on the way back to the villa. There are lots of wonderful restaurants within easy driving distance and Peter & I enjoyed discovering what else the Island had to offer when we were on our own. The family only wanted the beach and swimming pool. I managed to buy 5 pairs of shoes!!



We hope you have a good season and we look forward to returning soon.



Best wishes

Great Family Holiday in Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this large, spotlessly clean villa for a week and the owners really do whatever they can to ensure you have a great, stress-free holiday as soon as you make your reservation. We received a really helpful, detailed guide before we left giving recommendations of restaurants, beaches etc, were met and escorted to the villa at the airport by a local hire car company, and we were so grateful that the owners had arranged for shopping to be delivered to the villa for our arrival. We've truly never received such great service on holiday!

There is everything you could possibly need at the villa. Our teenage children particularly enjoyed the games room with the table tennis and football tables. A perfect location with a couple of restaurants within walking distance and it's literally a 5 minute walk to a nearby sandy beach (with another area where you can jump off rocks literally 2 minutes walk away from the villa).

We'd recommend taking a boat trip on the glass bottom yellow catamaran out of Mahon - amazing fish! We also enjoyed strolling round Cala Fonts, Es Castell in the evenings where there is a good choice of restaurants.

Thank you to Hugh & Sarah for ensuring we had such a smashing holiday!

Owner's Response: We try to help with the holiday from the moment our guests have collected their luggage at the airport. Toni and Lu are there in arrivals to help with the luggage and escort our guests to the house with their car and having groceries in the kitchen - those that the guests have chosen themselves - we feel sure is a help when all you want to do is to leap into the pool and relax. All part of the service.

Fabulous family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Has to be the most perfectly situated property on the island. Very close to a wonderful small beach and two great bars/restaurants and a twenty minute walk along a stunning coastline to the small but busier resort of Binibequer Vell. Here there are ample bars and restaurants.

The villa couldn't be better equipped with ample room inside and out with the large pool and bbq areas a real hit with kids and adults alike. Everything kept clean with pool and villa checked regularly.

Two families each with teenage children had a magnificent time wich was made even better with the support system the owners, Sarah and Hugh have put in place. Assisted with everything from the initial booking to the highly detailed "villa book" wich has a mine of information, to recommendations on car hire made for a seem less holiday. Eight very happy people on reflection couldn't find fault with the island and especially the accommodation.

Many many thanks Sarah.

Owner's Response: The two local restaurants are a huge hit with our guests and then the walk around the headland - passing another tapas style restaurant on the way - is truly beautiful particularly when the sun sets towards Majorca which you can see on clear days away on the horizon line. There is a huge sense of space on this side of the island and the house faces south which makes this perfect on sunny days - wall to wall sunshine!

A holiday gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this delightful villa for 2 weeks. We had such a lovely holiday in this beautiful place. We were 2 families with children and had plenty of room for us all. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our holiday including beach umbrellas and a cool box.

Location was perfect with the most beautiful beaches on the doorstep. Restaurants in walking distance and although you could manage without a car we are glad we had one.

The customer service was amazing and having food ready for us on arrival was an added bonus. We would definitely recommend and hopefully return.

Owner's Response: Binisafua is indeed a lovely place to holiday. The main beach a two minute walk from us is very child friendly with a lovely slipway from which to fish and of course - plenty of sand! We have other smaller coves around us which are also great for sunbathing and swimming, and diving decks off the rocks. Two restaurants up for our beach and another two just a ten minute walk away offer a great choice of food and are very good indeed. Yes, we always recommend to our guests that they should hire a car for their holiday and we can do this for you - we have worked with our company now for over ten years and they are very good indeed. They even escort our guests to the house as a complimentary service.

Home from home Villa

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we had contact with Sarah we knew our holiday was going to be as expected. As ex owners in Menorca we were very pleased to stay in a Villa whose owners obviously had the same values as us! Spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped.The Trolley Dolly had done a shop for us which was very welcome as we arrived in the late afternoon.Lovely to have all the basics laid on, including liquid soaps and shower gel.The Villa is airy with a very homely feel.Did'nt miss the television as there is an amazing selection of DVD's to choose from, should you want to go inside.

5 minute walk to lovely shallow sandy cove, which we always have called the green door beach, for obvious reasons! Useful cafe and very nice restaurant just a short stroll away. The week went far too quickly. Thank you very much for an excellent stay.We would be more than happy to highly recommend your Villa to anyone looking for a perfect family holiday.

Extremely well equipped clean and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

There is everything you could possibly want in this beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean Villa - whether kitchen utensils,comfortable garden furniture, inflatables for the pool,books, games & DVDs. A lot of thought and attention to detail has obviously gone into making this as delightful and as comfortable an experience as possible

The immaculate pool is serviced regularly and there is a variety of outdoor seating arrangements to take advantage of sun or shade. A games room and teddy bear/reading room cater for all ages of children (and adults!)

Customer service outstanding, including being met and guided from the airport, welcome shopping done and a very comprehensive written guide to beaches,restaurants etc.

The island itself is very interesting - loads of things to see and do, good beaches and activities,coves to explore, - not to mention some good restaurants and shopping! Can't wait to go back, and would definitely stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive review of villa Binisafua. All we strive for is a perfect holiday for our guests. it is hard, hard work but we love it and are committed to giving our very best service and holiday offering every time. We try and provide everything that you possibly can to make it a great break from the word go. Who wants t go out and buy all the kitchen basics, shower gels, teas and coffees before they've put on suncream and cossies. Not our guests - It's a holiday from the word go for them as we try and provide everything that we can right down down to beach umbrellas and pool inflatables, teddybears and drawing books for toddlers! Our guests work hard year round for that well deserved holiday away from all the the pressures of daily life, so why shouldn't we do our level best to make that holiday the best we possibly can for them?

A great holiday for mixed ages

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lovely holiday. The variety of rooms met our expectations and we were able to occupy teenagers, and 2 children with learning difficulties in a safe environment. Very well equipped and we felt we could call on anyone if we needed anything.

Really good car and welcome pack service.

Excellent communication with the owners prior to the visit. and really unusual to have the villa booklet before you go but lovely touch. Only difficulty we experienced was needing a more detailed map to get us to the smaller beaches but this was not a huge problem at all.

A great villa. Car is essential.

We would use villas direct again if this is the level of holiday we can experience.

Thankyou

Location

From the Owner

Having discovered Menorca some 15 years ago, well someone else discovered it first well before that but you know what we mean, we decided that we needed a base to visit that offered us a standard of accommodation we had found lacking on our first stay. Over the years we have stocked the house to the gunnels with all anyone would need to have a luxury holiday. It seems to be working and our original plan for a base for us has backfired in that we may get a week at the end of September if we are lucky. We also have another house under ref B874.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : at 5 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 100 Metres Nearest Ferry : at 8 Miles Nearest Golf : at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 100 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 500 Metres Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

The island is approximately 32 miles by 12, and offers over 200 hundred beaches so you are never more than a stones throw from water. Our local beach is minutes walk from the front door, Binebeca with its great beach bar is 5/10 minutes by car and all around us are cliff walks and varying rock diving experiences.

Travel:

Car Hire is essential, this we will be happy to arrange via our car hire partners. We do not claim to be the cheapest nor the most expensive, however, you will be met at the airport with your car, not kept hanging around waiting for a full mini-bus to take you off to the industrial estate to pick up your vehicle, we will escort you to the villa, this helps with the baggage, the price is the price with no arrival extras and for a small supplement we can arrange the same service in reverse.

Distances:

We are 5 minutes drive from a great family operated supermarket offering the very best of island and English product,and then sneak into the adjoining cafe bar for a well deserved refresher. 10 minutes away is the delightful town of St Lluis, where you can shop like we used to, individual groceries, meat and veg, the best cafe bar in town is La Ruada. The capital Mahon is about 25 minutes drive, or 15 with local knowledge.

Further Details:

We send all our clients a full and detailed villa book which we hope will cover all your holiday needs.

We have 3 G WiFi access at the house, it is a minimum connection Broadband as such has yet to hit the resort. The service is good for emails etc, but if you have a need of large downloads it may not cope. Sorry kids Facebook will just have to wait a week or two.
