About Mark Stone or Leigh Stone

The Stonehouse can now boast 5 years of fully booked calenders with over 65 exceptionally satisfied customers, most of which have left great testimonials for your reference.

We also have obtained some repeat holiday makers. (This speaks for itself).......

From the moment you get of the plane you notice how clean and well kept the island is. My wife and myself are well travelled people and have many places to compare the island with!

We found it ticks all the boxes. Also we pride our self with being house proud, i think this will show in our villa. We hope that you love the villa and the island of Menorca as much as us.

Have a great time!

Mark Stone or Leigh Stone purchased this villa in 2010

Why Mark Stone or Leigh Stone chose Alaior

We actually bought the villa because of its superb location and its homely feel. It is so close to the beautiful cala en porter beach and the delightful town where there is great restaurants and superb bars. It has all this but remains very quiet at night so you can be assured of a restful holiday.

Since having our baby daughter Madeleine we now live here permanently, we love everything about the island, its superb for families young and old, you come as guests but leave as friends.

look forward to sharing this beautiful place with you.

Kind Regards

Leigh Mark and Maddie

What makes this villa unique

We have done a lot of research on Menorca before we purchased our villa and we where extremely lucky to find The Stone House. It is in the perfect location. We do not need to keep explaining how close it is to everything you will ever need on your holidays, book with us and you want to go back! promise!

We also have to mention that approximately half a mile away at the cliffs edge lies one of the best discos in the world. It caters for young and old.

The Xoria la coves club lies in the side of the cliffs that are has natural caves illuminated by led lights and the stars.

The sunsets in the adjacent rear of Majorcan mountains and the calm sea.

I really cannot big it up enough. It really is a must!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Enquiry for Owners Direct property ref B5096

Dear Leigh/Mark,

Please feel to use the following as a guest testimonial on the web site:

I just wanted to drop you a quick note, following our 2 week stay at the Stonehouse, to let you know what a great time we had.

The villa was almost perfect for us and despite having to accommodate the very differing needs of our party of 6 (2 adults, 2 'big' children and 2 'little' children), it delivered in virtually every respect. The outside area is faultless: from the pool to the BBQ and the sun loungers to the dining area (not forgetting the very useful clothes lines !); whilst the TV set-up with the freeview and extensive film library, ensured that the 4 young ones were kept entertained, whenever it was too hot to go outside (or into the early hours, in the case of the elder 2 !).

The villa is also ideally positioned for access to both the beach and the bars/restaurants/supermarkets of Cala N'Porter.

Great location for beach and shops, with a lovely pool.

  • 4 of 5

We chose this villa based on previous reviews and it did indeed have a great location for accessing the beach, shops and restaurants. It was also only 20 minutes from the airport.

The pool was lovely and was well maintained during the week.

The one disappointment for us was that the kitchen had been less well maintained and cleaned than the rest of the property, in particular the dishwasher and oven. It would have also been good to have some more child friendly glasses and crockery.

The perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were thoroughly impressed by the location, comfort and facilities that the Stone House offered and our holiday there was unforgettable. As we walked in to the lovely cool villa there were shrieks from all ages as we spotted the beautiful pool in the gardens and it was in constant use for the ten days.

As we have young children, we based ourselves mainly at the villa for meals but this was so relaxing all round. The BBQ was used each night and cards played around the seating area. The claim about the excellent location of the villa is totally accurate. It is a short walk from the superbly stocked supermarkets and bustling restaurants but also provides a completely peaceful secluded atmosphere.

From our perspective, it was invaluable that infant accessories were available for use like a highchair and cot bed but the villa would suit all as it is decorated in a beautiful cross between traditional stone and beams with lovely art work and accessories. We spent the majority of the time outside in the pool or under the veranda in the shade but the comfort of the inside space and air con was much appreciated when getting out of the sun for a while!

Great location, super clean and a proper pool!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't give the pool justice. I'm fact the photos don't give the property justice! It's a fabulous holiday rental.

We came to stay at Mark's place in early August. The weather was perfect, the beach has clean with shallow warm water (the 200 steps to get there is well worth the exercise). The beach has a bar and shop so you can always buy a drink, food/ice cream or stuff for the beach when you get there, so you don't have to carry loads down the steps. Also the fruit man comes to the beach around mid day.

Shops, bars, restaurants and soft play are a minute walk away from the property. A handful of supermarkets are dotted along the streets. Also the night market comes every other night. The bus stops for all locations on the island are a minutes walk and there is a car hire place a few door down.

The transfer from the airport is about 25mins in a taxi, it's a straight road pretty much so if you hire a car it's super easy to get to.

Check the cupboards before heading to the shops as there is is loads of stuff left behind by other people. We replaced what we used. I think that's what makes it a great place to stay as everyone who seems to stay here is respectful and treats it like home, which is why the property is in great shape and Mark clearly looks after it well between rentals.

Mark helped before arrival by replying to all emails and questions. While we were there Mark popped by to clean the pool and is very friendly.

Great villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in various apartments/villas in Cala En Porter this is by far the best one.

The villa was amazing and had everything that we needed. Our little boy was in the pool all day every day and the sun was never of it, great for cooling off in the hot weather.

The villa is situated as close to everything that you need and couldn't be better positioned.

Another great stay in Menorca and would definitely recommend this villa.

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property was roomy, clean and comfortable with a relaxing ambience.

Being a family with an infant we made full use of all the facilities on offer.

We especially enjoyed the pool and also made use of built in barbarcue.

We found the property to be well located for access to all local amenities

with plenty of choice for shops, bars etc.

Although its only 5mins or so to nearest bar we never had any problems

with noise.

The local restaurants offered plenty of choice and all were good value with

most offering fixed price 3 course meals including drink.

We found Mark the owner to be helpful and living locally was available to sort

out any problems (there were none) as well as keep pool clean.

We would have no hesitation in booking this villa again next time we come with the family and would recommend to others.

Special interest holidays:

The villa is within 5 minutes to the beach and all amenities.


The villa is approximately 4 minutes walk to the beach which is one of the best in the Balearic's.


Mahon airport is approximately 10 Kilometers away from the villa. We find that you can get a taxi into Cala en Porter for under 20 euros.

Car hire is quite simply in the town as there are numerous car hire firms in Calan Porter. Alternatively you can hire in the airport or online.


The villa is only 15 minutes 10 kilometers from the airport.

We would encourage anyone to hire a car for a few days just to do a bit site seeing. The Island is so beautiful it really is worth the effort.

Testimonial 5th July 2012 from the Lancastors

Hi Leigh and Mark - just a quick e-mail to say thank you for a fantastic

week at the Stonehouse. If you want to use the below on your website then

please feel free to do so. We all had a great time. Thanks again. Andy

and Bev


Dear Leigh and Mark, just a short e-mail to thank you for a fantastic week

at the Stone House. Me, my wife and 3 children (7,5 and 4) had the most

amazing time. Everything was great (and as described on the website) but

little touches like being able to drop the cases at the villa early made

such a difference on arrival day, also Jan booked our taxi for returning to

the airport for us as well which was very helpful. The villa is a short

walk from the beach and the centre of town which made it easy for evening


The villa was very comfortable with the air con being absolutely invaluable

during the day and at night. The pool kept the kids entertained all

afternoon and the UK TV channels was great for watching cbeebies and the

Olympics when the sun got too hot!

An awesome week - can't rate it highly enough.

Best regards
