Fantastic location apartment, with sea views, short walk to the white sand beach of Arenal d´en Castell
The apartment one of first to be build in the area therefore the location was carefully selected for position and views. It is set in a large plot of land; it has a large community swimming pool, and private used of 200sq metres of garden. The kitchen has been refurbish and is open plan in order to make cooking a more sociable chore or pleasure. There two tables one indoors with six chairs and one on the terrace to enjoy the outdoors with a portable bbq. Television Spanish channels but we can provide a DVD player. The two bedrooms are very cool and airy and once again due to the position of the apartment the heat of the summer is more bearable as there is always a nice breeze. We provide sun loungers that can be used either on the private garden space or by the pool area.

About the Owner
Menorca is a very special island. I was born in Menorca and left to live in England for 12 years. When I came back I was able to appreciate more the quite and beauty that the island offers. I have 3 very young children and there is nowhere else that you will find safer and that also can provide all sort of activities and excursions that will keep their little minds busy..

A neat apartment, perfect location...
Me and my girlfriend stayed in this apartment for a week at the end of June/start of July. We took advantage of the 10% discount and got it for a reasonable price. We had not booked any transfers however the apartment was easy to find via taxi (or bus which we used during our stay). The apartment was neat and easily big enough for a family of 4, so a lot of room for us! I wouldn't say 5 as it suggests on the description. Due to what looked like a lack of maintenance in some areas, the front (green) by-folding door hinge broke off. It had rusted away so we didn't open them fully over our stay. The kitchen was clean and kitted out with all utensils needed. Both bedrooms had large amounts of space to store things. Draws and hangers. During our stay, we had an outbreak of ants, even though our apartment was clean. We phoned the number provided and help was around right away. The cleaners eliminated the ants and we never saw them again. One thing we noticed is that the photos displayed on the website were not accurate, needing updating by the looks of things! Overall, a neat well located apartment near all the relevant facilities, restaurants/bars, doctor, pharmacy, shops and taxi/bus stops. Perfect for avoiding the busy hotel atmosphere or larger apartment complexes. I would recommend this apartment to couples and families of 4.
-Stones through from the beautiful beach of Arenal de'n Castell
-Taxi rank and bus stop is round the corner

-ANTS!!!! Be aware, there are a lot of nests around the apartment!
-The infomation supplied to us had a few errors which lead to some complications upon arrival (Apartment numbers)
This has been our third stay in these apartments and each time we have loved it. The apartments are always clean and in our opinion, well-equipped. The kitchen area is ideal in size to cook and serve a meal (as sometimes worktop space has been lacking in other apartments elsewhere in Arenal). The pool is also a good size to swim in. The owner is always friendly and helpful and booking is straightforward. We love this location as it is so peaceful, has fantastic views over the bay and is only a short walk down to the beach and various lovely restaurants. Don't let the many steps to the beach put you off as, if needed, there are slopes and other routes to walk either side of the bay. Thank you Lina for another lovely holiday and we were very grateful for your agreement to our request for a late check out on our last day. We look forward to staying again!
The apartment was clean and tidy, in a perfect location with a superb view, I cannot fault that. The apartment was not very well equipped, especially in the bathroom with not even a toilet roll holder. The sink was very shallow, the shower very big but absolutely nowhere to put anything. No hooks for clothes, towels etc and no shelving or hooks in the shower to put things, I was very disappointed. The kitchen was very basically equipped too with out any cloths, or even a drop of washing up liquid! The oly frying pan was only big enough to cook 1 egg at a time and we had to use an enamel dish to cook bacon. We only managed to eat in one night as it was such a performance trying to cook without the right equipment.
We could not get the tv to work either, although we didn't stay in so it really didn't bother us, but there should have been better instructions.
I have been to Arenal 5 times before as I do love it but I would not go back to this property.
Lovely relaxing holiday
Our first time with Owners Direct and we've been very happy with our choice of apartment. Great central location in Arenal d'en Castell, and perfect for a young family. Apartment was on first floor of a block of four, with sea views from balcony. Good clean, comfortable accommodation. Swimming pool is shared with other apartments (total of 28) but we frequently had the pool all to ourselves, as many of the owners are elderly and don't use the pool much. Local mini supermarket, tourist shops and restaurants less than five minutes walk, also bus stop and land train stops nearby for trips out. Short walk down the steps to the beach.
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
The island is so beautiful and has so much to offer to those that like practising any waters sports like windsurfing, sailing, canoeing. There some fantastic tracks for those that like cycling, horse ridding or just going for walks. It so quiet that if you just want to do nothing and relax the island is just ideal. there is a chill out area on the beach.
The beach is less that 75 metres from the apartment. one of the larges beaches in menorca 650 meters of white sand and blue waters. the shallow water makes it a perfect beach to visit with children as it is very safe. there are also a few beach bars as well as pedalos and entertainment. sun loungers, and parasols can be hire.
The airport is at about 20 minutes drive. the capital of the island mahon is only 18 km away. there are excellent bus connections to any part of the island however I do recommend to hire a car to visit the most special spots of the island.
The island is just about 46km from side to side therefore distances to towns and various resorts are very short. The closes town to the resort is in fact very beautiful hill top town. The most famous town of Fornells is also a very short drive from the apartment, great sea food restaurants and atmosphere.
There is a couple of minutes walk to the beach, bars and restaurants. The apartment is at 18km from Maó and airport; 4km from port, 4km from golf court. 1km from tennis court, 100m from de beach, 50m from doctors, 150m from the supermarket.
