About Amanda Hickey

My name is Amanda and I live in Harrow with my partner Gavin. I gave up the rat race and now look after pets for people going on holiday or away for the weekend. As a true animal lover it is a joy rather than a job. On my first trip to Menorca in 1982 it was love at first sight and my family has now owned a property on the island since I was 15. We have now had our apartment for the last ten years and were amazed by the views instantly. I have a real passion for the island and have enjoyed growing up there making many friends both Spanish and English some of whom I have known since I was a child. Our apartment was a pleasure to renovate and has a feeling of home from home which is exactly what Menorca has become for me over the many years I have enjoyed. I want others to love it too.

Amanda Hickey purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Amanda Hickey chose Alaior

Our reasons for buying this apartment where varied, one being previously owning a villa with large grounds and a garden which needed maintenance. The villa did not have the view that the apartment offers and having stayed in a friends apartment in the same block it occurred to me that this was a better option, No gardening and a great view! The location has everything you need so was ideal. Calan Porter caters for children and adults as well as teenagers.

It is with-in easy access of the airport, the beach and not too far from the main capital.

What makes this apartment unique

You will have the benefit of a spacious private double story accommodation with beautiful views where you can get away from it all. Falling asleep in a comfortable bed to the sound of the sea waves can be the most relaxing way to unwind.

Many rental properties do not offer the use of a washing machine but when you are away for some weeks it can be very useful if you want to keep the packing to a minimum. It is a real home from home as my previous guests have stated in their reviews. Save money by not having to rent beach sunbeds or buy beach umbrellas as they are supplied at my house, 3 beach beds and plenty of beach toys in the trunk, snorkeling masks, an inflatable boat, flippers, games etc all supplied. If you are rained in there are plenty of books, games and Sky TV as well as DVDs to keep you occupied. It also has the best view from the upstairs sun lounge to watch the electric storms which are pretty spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the manager

July-Aug 2011/12

It was at very short notice we booked this apartment and were in no way disappointed. The payment and keys were sorted very smoothly. This

apartment was very spacious and comfortable it was spotlessly clean and very well equiped with nothing lacking and as reassurance we were given the number of someone we could contact at any time. Our family enjoyed two weeks here and we can honestly say in all our years of travelling abroad none of us wanted to come home. Asking our teenage children the highlight of their stay, it was that they felt totally safe where the apartment was situated and that they thoroughly enjoyed the large open air balcony with fabulous views where we spent many evenings just relaxing. The beautiful beach, shops, many eating places and free access to local pools are a only a 5 minute walk away, everyone was happy! Many thanks! We will definately be coming back.

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Genuinely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Acantilado was just the best place we have ever stayed in and we have holidayed a lot. It was beautifully furnished and every detail had been thought about. I could not recommend it highly enough. All of the beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen was fitted out so well we could have entertained for 20!! The views from the two balconies were stunning. In the end we only ate out twice as we felt the views from our balcony were second to none! We only went out to enjoy the town when the light had faded. So I would sum it up:

STUNNING ...... BEAUTIFUL........PEACEFUL............ just PERFECT!!

Having stayed in Cala N Porter before we knew what to expect,however, we were taken aback by the high standard of the apartment.Being on two levels took a bit of getting used to, this was a bonus because most apartments we have been to before are only on one level.

It was equipped with everything you would need on a holiday and we didnt want for anything, comfy beds,flat screen T.V. Wi-Fi, Washing Machine and loads of kitchen gadgets etc.

The location is why we chose Amandas apartment with the sun appearing nearly all day over the spacious balcony.We live by the sea in Kent England,but still loved to look at the peaceful cove beneath us with the sound of the waves and the fabulous panoramic view.

We chose October as we wanted peace and quiet and still catch the sun and it ticked all the boxes for us.We got to know Amanda and found her very helpful and quick to reply to any questions we had,which werent many!!

I hope this short summary helps anybody not sure whether to book or not,we know we will be going back.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this beautiful villa apartment in September needing to get away and enjoy some sun and peace, what I found was the most beautiful apartment I ever stayed in. The view from the balcony was breathtaking and the apartment itself was beautifully furnished with everything anyone could want. A short walk to the shops and great restaurants and bars and then the small beach was just perfect. Very friendly people and sunshine guaranteed. Best holiday I have had in years! definitely going back this year.

A week of bliss

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful place in such a stunning location. First family holiday in years and this apartment felt like home straight away. It was spacious so we did not feel on top of each other and everything we needed was there (internet included.) Very clean, very comfortable and the photos just don't do it justice. Everything you need is in walking distance; restaurants, bars, supermarket, shops and a short walk down the cliff steps to the beach to keep you fit, alternatively there are some local swimming pools for those who prefer. There's a great bus service into the city centre of Mahon and safe local taxis too. The panoramic view is breath taking and there's nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the waves. Star gazing on the spacious balcony became a nightly event, its the easiest place to relax and unwind and switch off from the real world for the duration of your holiday and we can't wait to go back. When dealing with Amanda she was helpful and informative and we feel like we've known her for years and wouldn't hesitate in recommending her apartment to anyone interested in staying.

Menorcan Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is an apartment that we have now stayed in for 2 years on the trot and we have been extremely happy with it. Amanda is always adding new things such as new furniture to improve the comfort of her guests and keeps the property very well maintained, The view is difficult to tear yourself away from and it has all the mod cons you could want. She has made it a real home from home and you also feel very secure as their is a safe for your valuables and the security doors are a great idea. You can close yourself in at night without shutting out fresh air, so it has been very well thought out. Amanda always makes you feel welcome and is on the other end of the phone should you need assistance and the villa manager Karen is also there if you require help in any way. We will be continuing our holidays for 2015 at Amanda's and probably for the foreseeable future. Regards Steve

Our Stay in Menorca

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Menorca this year. From our first contact with Amanda she was nothing but helpful, informative and accommodating to our needs. This was our first time holidaying through renting an apartment so we didn't know what to expect but Amanda's apartment surpassed our expectations. Amanda described it with fondness but it was even better than her description and the photos. We were very comfortable. It had everything we needed and much more....home away from home. The view of Cala 'n Porter from the apartment is spectacular and Cala 'n Porter is of our favorite beaches on the island. Amanda provided us with a comprehensive list of details about the apartment, places to go, contacts if any problems etc which was great. She really cared about us enjoying our stay and we really did. Would definatley contact Amanda again in the future to repeat our experience. Highly recommended

Would be happy to provide any further information or answer any questions by phone if needed. Let me know...

Best wishes,
