About The Owner

We love Mallorca very much and spend as much time as possible gardening, working on and maintaining our special home in the sun (broken up with lots of good local wine, dips in the pool and swims in the sea of course!

Why The Owner chose Migjorn Region

It has such character and life, the old stone is beautiful and the gardens and wonderful views out towards the coast just made us fall in love with it from the first moment.

What makes this apartment unique

The style of the apartment is pretty unique, there's some interesting artwork from local artists, original antique marble top side tables and an antique carved double bed which make the inside so comfy but unusual. The little terrace overlooks the fish pond and although there is garden lighting, we also have lanterns and candles to add to the special feeling and wonderful atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely lovely apartment and such a beautiful area. We really loved Porto Colom and the promenade with all the little bars looking across to the boats. We have some wonderful memories. Thankyou for a lovely stay. Jean and Edward (April 2012)



Beautiful - and the best sleep and great shower! We'll be back. David and Maeve (May 2012)



The photos do not do justice to the lovely pool and apartment - wonderful hosts, lovely holiday and hope to be back next year. Paul and Carol (Sept 2013)

Notes:
The apartment is situated in the beautiful almond fields just above Porto Colom, with all facilities within easy reach. There is a covered balcony immediately outside the apartment, with table and chairs surrounded by bougainvilla and looking out across the gardens and fish pond and pool area. The pool and gardens have pretty lighting for evening dining. The gardens have many mature shrubs, fruit trees and plants, various patios & terraces, a new gazebo platform, a large sunny pool with power jets, good sunbeds, umbrellas, hammock, dining tables and chairs. There is a separate BBQ area with traditional Mallorcan pizza oven (antique) and a marble table around a central shady tree, next to an interesting and well stocked pond, nicely lit and tiled. The house has been fully restored with soft water systems and a beautiful garden. It has a traditional tower main entrance as well as a separate guest casita, chickens and a daft friendly small dog. The route to the beaches is scenic & pleasant for walkers and bikers (there is a particularly pleasant country lane direct to Porto Colom – or a main road if preferred). Both rural and rustic routes abound and are well marked. Cyclists particularly enjoy the area in early and late season, with the flowers in full bloom. Driving is simple and well signposted. Aircon is available at a daily rate, please enquire. A washing machine, iron and ironing board are situated in a separate utility area. Good quality linen and towels are included and a midstay change is offered for stays of more than 14 days

The perfect place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth consecutive stay at the Finca and we love it here. The apartment has everything you need for two people including a lovely veranda overlooking the pool. James & Yvonne are always welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The location is quiet and peaceful especially at night and the perfect place to unwind. The property is always spotless and well maintained and we would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Property did not meet the standards as described in the publicity

  • 1 of 5

We had no regular supply of hot water for 10 days, and for several days we had water on demand, in other words, we had to advise the owner when we wanted a shower. When the supply was partially fixed we had low water pressure and an intermittent supply of very salty cold water. The access to the shower is very difficult to negotiate. The light in the kitchen was broken and we needed to use a table lamp for 4 days in an already cramped space. The owner seemed very reluctant to engage professional help to sort things out. This apartment is not luxurious; the kitchen is cell like with minute breakfast bar; eating outside was difficult because of mosquitoes. The bedroom/lounge is small. Incessant howling and barking from neighbouring dogs makes sleep difficult, in addition to a menagerie of wild poultry throughout the garden. The suggestion that the nearest beach is 0.2 kilometres away is deceptive as the property is at least 1.5 kilometres from the outskirts of Portocolom, which makes it a taxi ride rather than a walk if taking beach gear. TV reception continually fragmented. The refrigerator and wifi functioned properly.

Owner's Response: Oh dear what a shame you said nothing whilst here :( as you know the prior guest reported a bad leak the day before you arrived so, with only a weekend in between? ?the plumber & electrician came at 8am Monday and restored non stop plentiful hot water & replaced the light cable, affected by the leak, straight away? We went out of our way to help with extra lights, offering use of another shower, taking you shopping, driving you to town, even doing your washing! and generally offering you any assistance we could think of through your entire stay. We are, as advertised just outside of town, in beautiful countryside, a pleasant walk in cool times or v v short drive but we do recommend a car.. In fact we strongly encouraged you before booking to hire one, but you opted not to do so. You complain the kitchen is small, but it is fully equipped .. With plenty of room, including a breakfast bar, coffee, tea, coffee maker, fridge/freezer etc etc :( all immaculately clean. Our many returning guests love the finca, the fish, turtles and the fresh eggs from our chickens. Space, comfort or quality has never been an issue. Indeed all is kept up to date, constantly renewed and always cared for. The Tv has also never been an issue, with excellent reception, but we are sorry if a distant neighbour had a dog that barked intermittently :( In any event, despite trying our very best and not hearing a single complaint from you on the numerous occasions we spoke, laughed and joked together... we are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. However, we must say that we are disappointed and sincerely upset that you communicated your disaffection only now and in such an unrepresentative, inaccurate and unfair manner :(

Very pleasant - matches the description well

  • 5 of 5

Owners very helpful without being fussy or "in your face". Property is fairly compact but easily big enough for the 2 of us. Comfortable bed. All quiet - apart from a few barks and cock a doodle's. Pool very clean and inviting.

Porto Colom is about a mile away - we walked in a few times, but hard work in the heat!

We had no problems at all. Deposit returned quickly. Very happy to recommend the property.

A wonderful place to unwind. Great advice offered from the owners on where to visit. A highly recommended holiday for anyone looking to completely relax and get away from it all.

A fantastic stay in this wonderful Oasis in Majorca, Porto Collom

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful relaxing break in the apartment in the Finca in Porto Collom. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean and had all the utensils we could possibly need for our 8 night stay. The owners, Yvonne and Jamie, were very helpful and offered great advice on the local area and eateries and places to go, particularly lovely bays. We had the use of the pool, to ourselves, throughout our break. We enjoyed BBQ's in the garden area and made great friends with the Chickens, Richard the Tortoise and the huge terrapins in the garden pond. We enjoyed peace and quiet as the Finca is set back in country roads, but only a short walking distance from the nearest restaurant. It was possibly the best relaxing break we have enjoyed in a long time and for sure, we will revisit. We would strongly recommend this to others as a good break away from it all and the option to explore is you so wished. The town and port have interesting restaurants to suit all tastes. A wonderful holiday. Thanks to Jamie and Yvonne, who were always happy to be called on for any advice or guidance.

Porto Colom & Cala Marcal
Car: recommended

Just 5 minutes from the beautiful traditional old town of Porto Colom and its quiet blue sheltered bays, its wonderful fishing llauts (small boats) and many quality restaurants and bars. The nearby blue flag Cala Marcal beach is a large horseshoe bay of golden sand and a real suntrap! whilst the pretty beaches of Colom bay are all ideal for snorkelling, kayaks, swimming and sunbathing, with clean, clear blue waters & pine trees providing shade and unique picnic areas. The private beach at Cala Sanau and the 2 miles of protected sands and dunes of Mondrago (voted one of The Times Worlds Best Beaches) are also easily reached from the finca whilst 15mins away is the 'noisier' tourist resort of Cala d'Or, which has seven small beaches and all the accompanying resort activities such as banana boats and paragliding etc.

40 minutes drive from the airport and Palma (we can offer discounted door to door transfers if required). Also within easy distance are many scenic inland villages and traditional markets, numerous beautiful calas and bays. The area is very popular with walkers, riders and cyclists with some pretty lanes and pathways, well signposted and easy to use. A car is useful in the hot months for those special beach picnics, endless shopping opportunities and to explore the beautiful private calas and inland villages of the area. Porto Colom centre has all the supermarkets, shops, bars, banks and restaurants expected of a medium sized traditional village and has several well known restaurants on the bay, including HPC, Colon and SaLlotja which draw visitors from all over the island.

Further Details:

Porto Colom is completely self-contained for all day to day needs. It allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of a main tourist centre, whilst being nearby to all those attractions should they be wanted. The local bars, cafés, restaurants, spa shops, banks, bakers, butchers and market provide everything needed for a wonderful stay. There is also a small jewellers, beautiful craft shops, antique shops and decorative and dress shops. The local church is open for visitors and the pretty harbour has a play area for children and is often host to local fiestas, plays and open air dinners. A lovely local market is held weekly. Diving, cycling, ballooning, horse riding, sailing, quad tours, spa facilities, motorbikes etc are all available close by.

The apartment is available for long or short term rental definited by the Tenancy laws of Spain and subject to the relevant Tenancy Acts :)
