Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mike, I am writing to return the keys to 'Finca Can Gato' and to say what a great holiday myself and my family had there last week. We thought the villa was the best we have stayed in in Pollenca and the annex was perfect for Chris and I to slightly distance ourselves from the young grand children, as much as we love them of course' Mr & Mrs C, Cheshire

'Dear Mike, We had a wonderful holiday at your villa - I don't think we have ever been so comfortable on holiday before. Swimming in the pool in the evening with the lights on was like swimming in silk - it felt so decadent. Many, many thanks' Mrs S, Hertfordhsire

'Dear Mike, We had an absolutely fabulous time on holiday. The finca is a little bit of paradise on earth! We found it to be extremely comfortable and really enjoyed the pool. We so loved being at the finca that we had most of our meals there and loved eating under the vines' Mrs K, USA

A really great holiday - thanks

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this house. It is absolutely as described, if not better.

Its private, peaceful, spacious and clean with plenty of room inside and out (there were 7 in our party). The owners are really friendly and we got the impression they really cared about us having a good time - so thanks Mike and Bev.

We've been going to Pollenca for 15 years and have stayed in quite a few villas, but this for us is the best we've stayed in.

Fab holiday.......private, spacious as described

  • 5 of 5

I've never left a review before for anything but when Mike (the owner asked me too) we had been that pleased with the holiday and the villa that I thought I should.

We went with my parents - so four adults and two children.

The location of the house is stunning - private, very quiet with views of the mountains.

The pool is something else - clean, clear water and enormous with roman steps at the shallow end which my elderly parents really appreciated. It was hard to stay out of and both children and adults loved it or just lying on the loungers on the patio next to the pool.

The annex was great for my parents and gave them there own space and a great view over the gardens and pool.

Eating outdoors in the evening was fabulous and the large bbq made cooking for 7 real easy...so easy that we spent most meal times at the house with the occasional night out in the old town of Pollenca or the port.

The house itself was as described - more than enough space for us, comfortable and very clean.

The owners, Mike and Bev, were really helpful - a big thankyou from the Banks's for a wonderful holiday

Once again a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here several times over the past few years, partly because the owners are so helpful but mainly because of the spaciousness of the house and grounds, the privacy and the peace and quiet.

This year we went with extended family and the house was more than big enough to accommodate all 8 of us. Eating outside every night was great and the kids had a fab time in the very large and pristine pool - as did the adults.

When we stay here we get our teenagers back for two weeks - no wifi....fantastic! Thanks Bev and Mike.

Great holiday - thanks

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Mike and Bev for a great holiday. We had a great time, the children loved the super large pool (as did all of us) and the extra privacy of the annex meant that the two families could holiday together without getting on top of each other.

The house was as described - spacious, private and very quiet and the grounds were superb with plenty of space for the children to exhaust themselves. We'll definately be back

Very private. Very spacious. Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday. The house was as described and the owner, Mike and his wife, were really helpful. The children loved the large pool - as did we. Inside the house was very spacious, though most of our time including meal times were spent outside in the lovely grounds.

When we wanted a break from the pool the beach at Puerto Pollenca was a 10 min drive away ans was the old roman town of Pollenca. Both had plenty of restaurants and places to stop for a coffee.

We'll definitely come again.

A great place for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

A good location and a wonderful place to relax, with very helpful owners. Would definitely recommend this property, particularly for the beautiful pool. The pool is in superb condition, with perfectly clean water, and a number of surrounding sunbeds for relaxing on.The property itself was very clean on our arrival and the bedrooms and lounge were spacious. A lovely outside eating area, where we ate most meals. A great place for a family holiday.
