About the property

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 are flatscreen TVs in both the main living room and the games room. The living room has full UK TV whilst the games room is purely set up to play video and DVDs which are plentifully provided for our guests. There are hundreds to choose from.

For the energetic, or competitive, there are magnetic darts (sorry but Elf & Safety says 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. Loads of board games and books too. The upstairs teddy bear room is also a haven of toys, teddy bears 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.

Car hire is essential and if booked through our chosen car hire company Keels and Wheels you are met in airport arrivals and helped with your luggage to the house with a villa escort service which Keels and Wheels provide for our guests free of charge.

We also kit start your first day with a shopping service to provide you with either lunch or dinner groceries in the kitchen for your arrival at the house. The house is hugely stocked with everything you need in terms of teas, coffees, soaps, washing up liquids and powders. You just need to buy your food and drinks. Towels are also provided for pool and beach use but these need to be returned to the house on your last day.

So come and enjoy a truly wonderful holiday at the lovely villa Binisafua - you won't be disappointed only delighted!

About Hugh and Sarah

awaiting owner profile.

Hugh and Sarah purchased this villa in 1997

Why Hugh and Sarah chose Sant Lluís

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Best stocked villa we've ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish of booking and going on holiday, the owner Sarah could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and she has put in place lots of little extras to help make your holiday go without a hitch, from arranging an escort service from the airport to an arrival shopping list service. The villa itself is beautifully quiet and has lots of different areas, each with its own charm. The swimming pool is lovely with wide tiled steps into the shallow end and a metal rung ladder at the other end. A short walk takes you to a delightful little beach which is perfect for children. Ideal for those wanting a peaceful holiday, but only a short distance from Mahon for sightseeing and shopping.

Fantastically equipped and superb outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 1 week in August and found the property to be equipped to the last detail and an excellent outdoor space for barbecues, sunbathing, relaxation and generally entertaining. The location is superb with beautiful local beaches and restaurants. I would not think twice about going back there again and would highly recommend.

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fortnights holiday in Menorca. We stayed at this villa and we had an amazing time. The villa was splotlessly clean on arrival, really well equipped, all the kitchen utensils you could ever need, ironong board, iron, hairdyrers etc, and Sarah, Hugh and their wonderful team will literally bend over backwards to ensure your family has a wonderful stay. There is a mid stay clean, the pool is regularly attended and is a massive source of enjoymemt for the children. The upstairs playroom was a huge hit with our 5 year old daughter and baby boy too. We hired a car from the wonderful Keels and Wheels at Sarah's recommendation (couldn't have been more helfpful) and were able to find plenty of restraunts, shops and scenic drives fairly easily. Thanks to Sarah, Hugh and their wonderful team we had an

amazing holiday providing both the children and ourselves with many many wonderful memories.

Amazingly well-stocked villa in superb location!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. We've stayed in numerous house rentals in the US, UK and in the Med and this one takes the cake! It is the most well-stocked villa we have ever stayed in. You will want for nothing; it has everything you need to make your self-catering holiday simply carefree. Truly a home away from home.

Here's what we loved most:

1. The villa is well cared for and it was spotless upon arrival

2. Plenty of bath towels and pool/beach towels

3. Pool was cleaned 3 times during our week-long stay

4. Loads of cleaning products and tools when needed, including dishwasher tablets, laundry soap, rubbish liners, and nappy sacks

5. Air conditioning

6. Insane amount of kitchen gear

7. Fun loft playroom for the kiddos with lots of toys and books

8. Loads of books and videos

9. Excellent, uncomplicated TVs and WiFi connection

10. Loads of pool floats, beach balls, and sand castle pails and spades

11. Access to superb, caring, simply lovely babysitters (owners will facilitate)

12. Only 15 minutes' drive from the airport

13. Only 5 minutes' walk to two great restaurants

14. Only 10 minutes' walk to Playa de Binisafua

15. Only 8-10 minutes' drive to Playa de Binibeca Nou - one of the prettiest beaches I've ever seen with clean toilet facilities and a cool, understated beach bar for delicious mojitos and ice cream

We would easily rent this villa again. The owners and their staff were such a pleasure to work with and meet. Such lovely people. And Menorca is magical. Go go go!

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.

Car: necessary


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.


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.


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.
