About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Yes thank you it was fantastic. I have been meaning to send you an email to thank you but I just haven't stopped since returning home, I wish I was back at the villa.... maybe next year...Thanks again Guy, it was more than we expected with the kid's commenting it was the best holiday they have had... for 4 teenage kid's to say that means it must have been good. They loved the pool and also the BBQ , very relaxing having a swim while the barbecue was cooking. The villa was fantastic, if you wanted peace and quiet you could go and find it with all the room we had there, loved the layout, very comfortable. Lots of water sports during the week with the beach only about a fifteen to twenty minute walk away and the restaurants you recommended were very good and the owner's lovely and friendly. We actually arrived very late on the Friday night and all the restaurants were closing, while we were looking around the little Chinese restaurant ( forgot the name) next to the Hawaiian bar looked like it might have been open, when I walked over to the family ( owners) sitting down I realised they were eating, I apologised but they would not have any of it stopping there meal to get up and cook 6 meals for us to take home, very nice people indeed.some of the cala's we visited were amazing, Macarella, Binidali and Turqueta stand out and are some of the best on the Island I have been told, I only wish we could have been there longer. We will definitely be returning in the future at sometime next year,
Once again thanks for a fantastic holiday

very nice property with a lovely view over son bou beach
Villa was very nice and fine with children when in property. The stairs can be a problem if you have buggies. We had a 8 month baby and 4 year old which when walking down to main bars and shops do struggle a bit with the walk as its very steep when walking back up. Its all things we overcame and wasn't a massive problem and had a lovely time at villa.
Lovely villa and pool with superb sea views
We have just returned from another lovely holiday in Menorca, this time spending 3 weeks in this villa. We have been coming to Menorca for many years (over 30 for one of us!) and have always stayed in Son Bou, so we know the area well and it always makes for a good holiday. We have always felt that Son Bou is a safe and friendly resort for family holidays.
Family and friends have properties in Son Bou but a large group were out at the same time so we decided to book extra accommodation. It's the first time we've used Owners Direct and we found the process very straightforward, plus the owners were very helpful answering our questions.
The villa has a lovely spot on the hillside overlooking Son Bou, with superb sea views. It is set on a relatively quiet, non through road, and you are able to park near the steps that lead up to the villa.
The villa itself has a good layout and there was plenty of space for all of us (3 adults and 2 young boys). It was clean and comfortable, with basic fittings and furnishings having a slightly older feel. Whilst everything in the kitchen was in working order, we would say the fridge and washing machine are reaching the end of their days.
The swimming pool is a really good size, taking up the majority of space to the side of the villa. The pool area and front terrace enjoy plenty of sunshine - in the high season, a refreshing dip in the pool is essential!
Temperatures were in the 30's for most of our stay. Inside, the villa stayed fairly cool when there was a breeze but the fans provided were essential at times. Air Con would be a welcome addition.
Being on the hillside, there is no getting away from the number of steps that lead down to the bars and restaurants (and beach) - we've got used to them over the years but there are a lot and it can be a struggle in the heat, especially for the young or elderly. Car hire is not essential but it does take the pressure off now and again, particularly if you're stocking up at the shop.
Another thing we have got used to over the years is the local ants - they can sniff out the slightest of sticky patches from a mile off! We're in the habit of wiping/sweeping up as we go, but given the opportunity, they will catch you out!
There is a good selection of restaurants in Son Bou and, if you've hired a car, there are plenty more within easy reach.
In summary, we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay.
This was our 2nd stay at the villa. It is very clean and well laid out and in a quite position, but just a short walk away from the centre of Son Bou. There are lovely sea views from the terrace and the pool is actually bigger than it looks in the pictures. It does lack air conditioning which would have been nice as it does get very hot and humid in the main summer months, however that wouldn't deter us from returning.
