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

Great place to holiday, private and spacious as described

  • 5 of 5

Planned as a surprise for my wife's birthday with a gathering of friends from different parts of Europe, it did not disappoint.

A well equipped villa in a wonderfully quiet and private location . Comfortably furnished and well decorated. Spacious gardens and barbecue area with a large clean pool .

The terrace is a great place to gather for afternoon drinks, lunch and evening meals.

Shopping not an issue with well stocked supermarkets nearby.

Mike is a great guy to deal with and is always helpful.

Will definitely come back again sometime in the future.

This is a gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. This is a lovely Villa in a very private location, you really do feel that you’re ‘away from it all’ despite being only a short drive from either Puerto Pollensa or Pollensa village. It’s very spacious with high quality furnishings both inside and outside and has a beautiful, well kept garden. The pool is also a cracker.

With x4 kids, lack of wi-fi was a thought, but you can get reasonable phone reception although the quality of data signal isn’t quite good enough enough for reliable streaming - but the accessing the basics is fine.

Although we had unexpected issue during our stay with a temporary loss in water supply to the villa, this was dealt with and fixed as promptly as it possibly could be by Mike’s support team in Mallorca who were absolutely first class - as was Mike himself.

Divine

We stayed for a week with our family and the only thing we can say is it was divine. Great location, great pool, house as described and wonderfully quiet and secluded.

Perfect villa for a large group. Fab pool. Great loggia for dining. Convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a large family group of eight aged between 24 and 60. Can Gato suited us perfectly. The three double bedrooms are all lovely and spacious with huge en suite shower rooms. The smaller twin bedded room is adequate and has own bathroom. Best were the gorgeous covered terrace for dining, the massive BBQ and fabulous pool. The supermarkets in Pollenca sell wonderful fresh fish and we bbq'd every night, played silly games, cards, Articulate, no internet was a bonus. There is mobile phone signal and 3G. Lots of good food beer, gin, laughter and family bonding. I can thoroughly recommend Can Gato and would return if we can only persuade our grown up children and partners to come on another family holiday one day. The port of Pollenca offers a wonderful beach and old Pollenca is my favourite Mallorca town. Both a short drive away. A car is essential ( we had two!) great comms with the owners too and key, directions etc all worked perfectly.

Great time had by all

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from staying here over the Easter break. The house is lovely, just as described. Its quiet and peaceful and very private and there is plenty of room - there were 8 in our party (4 adults and 4 children).

The gardens and pool areas are fabulous.....the pool is stunning, large crystal clear water and very safe for the kids. Very private and no noise...apart from the odd lemon dropping off the trees

I see most people have mentioned Mike and Bev, the owners. They were great and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time.

We've been to this part of mallorca before and will definitely come back and we'd love to stay here again. It's the best house we've stayed in.

Fantastic - private, quiet, very spacious

  • 5 of 5

We were two families who spent 10 days here over the October half term holiday.

The house was exactly as described. Very clean, spacious and comfortable and it accommodated all 8 of us without us ever feeling like we were on top of each other. The grounds, terraces and garden are very private and very large! More than enough space to let the children wear themselves out!

Apart from the odd trip out to Pollenca or the port we spent most of the days by the pool - and what a pool. Large enough to swim in, pristine clear water and roman steps to the shallow end. It was hard to get the children out of it.

Eating in was a pleasure. The BBQ is large enough to cook for 8 on and the kitchen is well equipped. Eating outdoors every night under the terrace covered by Wisteria (I think) was a real treat.

Bev and Mike, the owners, were really helpful and even organised for their to be a few provisions at the house as we arrived on a late flight.

We'd love to come back sometime soon. Thanks again.
