About the Owner

I have lived on the island since 2008. I arrived for a holiday and never left. Cliche I know but true. The north of Mallorca is stunning and the landscape is so varied. Beautiful Mountains and delightful little azure bays. Love it!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This booking was easy to arrange using Owners Direct with deposit on booking and a gentle prompt to complete the payment close to holiday time. Very easy to find in rental car from airport using driving instructions. A great welcome from Kim who makes sure everything is good, and a wine/beer/food welcome pack too - very welcome. Supermarkets handy too. Villa in very good order, spacious and comfortable, with nice things like handwash at every sink, loo rolls, cling film, ice, washing powder, dishwasher tablets etc provided. A nice travel cot and high chair were provided for the baby. Terrace beautiful with very comfortable seating, BBQ good, pool clean and lovely. Large garden, grass and trees, well maintained. Table Tennis table great fun, etc. Lounge very comfortable but didn't use it much, the weather was so lovely. The owner Angus was very keen by email to find out if he could improve things for future clients, which is why it is so good, so clean and so well provided. Beach is an easy 10-15 mins drive, easy parking there, beach properly sandy, Mediterranean lovely and promenade very nice. Good security at villa. We stayed one week, having come to Mallorca for a family wedding at nearby Son Brull. Great fun!

A beautiful and peaceful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 (3 youngish children) and always book villa holidays. This is the best villa we have ever stayed in. The rooms were spacious and airy (in particular the bedrooms were all a great size) and there were enough living areas for a great deal of privacy in the house (we had grandparents staying with us the first week). Everything worked fine, from the wifi (very important!) to the well-equipped kitchen to the showers. The outside areas are however what really put this villa in a class of its own. The pool area is fantastic with a nice big pool and plenty of shaded seating and loungers - it being screened from the house works really well. The garden is lovely and the outside terrace a great place to eat or just lounge around. The location is superb. Previously we had stayed within walking distance of Pollenca so were slightly nervous of having to drive everywhere. But the drives are incredibly easy - just a very few minutes easy drive from Pollenca, Puerto Pollenca, and the supermarkets - all with easy parking. So a trip to the beach took just 5 minutes (Puerto Pollenca or Cala San Vincenze), and same in the evenings to either Puerto Pollenca or Pollenca for dinner. The owner Angus was very helpful before we arrived, and happy to answer all queries, and his manager Kim was also great once we were there (not that we had any problems, but she popped in anyway just to check). All in all a completely positive experience - we will definitely be back.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous family holiday at the Font Xiquita. Our group was made up of adults and teenage children. The house is very clean, comfortable, spacious and has a very spanish feel about it. The kitchen is well equipped and there is an excellent built-in BBQ outside. There are lots of different places to sit both inside and outside the house. The best thing about the property is the beautiful garden. The pool was a good size, with lots of inflatables and we ended the week with an exciting crocodile race, which had everyone in hysterics. We played table tennis tournaments during the day and spent the evenings playing card games on the terrace. On a few days we used the Villa's bikes to cycle into Pollensa for morning coffee. There was plenty of activities to keep our teenagers off their phones for at least some of the time.

Angus, the owner, was really helpful ahead of our arrival and Kim looked after us while we were there. We would strongly recommend this Villa and would love to return sometime.

A special family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family have just returned from 2 weeks at Font Xiquita, this included our two small children (1yr old + 3yr old) and grandparents.

The house is just beautiful, inside and out, full of character and excellently secluded in its own grounds. It is both cosy and deceptively spacious, all rooms feel large and have high ceilings, they certainly coped well accommodating the seven of us. Most of our days were spent enjoying the stunning pool and mature gardens. These areas elevate the property above most of the competition and provided a fantastic backdrop to the holiday, we have some great photographs of the kids playing in the pool with the vast array of inflatables provided and laughing hysterically as they swayed in the hammock.

The location of the property suited us perfectly, a short 5 minute drive in one direction to the delightful Pollenca and a 10 minute drive in the other direction to the nearest beach and Port area. On the evenings where we chose not to make use of the BBQ, we thoroughly enjoyed venturing out to try the local restaurant recommendations provided by Kim and Angus, both of whom were on hand to help as required during our stay.

All in all, a simply amazing holiday. We would happily return again.

Lovely country house in Mallorca

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in a beautiful country house just outside the town of Pollenca.

The house is in a very good location, around the prettiest part of Mallorca. The grounds are simply stunning and the property is well taking care of. The house is beautifly decorated with a very spanish feel. It is a very quite and peaceful place, you can really enjoy the nature.

Overall the place is wonderful, but there are a couple things that we can point out:

- there are no blankets or duvets on the bed, only sheets to cover yourself at night. Some of us were cold.

- no paper towel, no toilet paper - this is basics. The villa does not come cheap, so I guess the basics should be covered.

- the kitchen pantry containing all the dishes we ate from contained a moldy odor, this should be dealt with. It was not pleasant having to constantly revist this smell.

- The bathtubs have seen some use with plenty of wear and tear. Recommened that they are replaced.

Despite the few negatives the postive aspects of the Villa greatly outweigh the negative. If some of the concerns are dealt with we would happily return as the Villa and surrounding area are gorgoeus.

Owner's Response: Dear Christina, Many thanks for submitting a review and i'm delighted that overall you had a lovely holiday. I'm so happy you loved the house and garden. I'm sorry that there were a few things that you found unsatisfactory and i'll address them immediately: - In terms of blankets, we have never issued them over the summer months (June, July, August and September) as when my family lived there we never needed them in these months, and we have never been asked for them to be supplied since. That said I will now ensure that blankets are available all year round. I'm sorry that you didn't inform myself or Kim immediately as we could have rectified the situation immediately. - We always supply every bathroom/WC with toilet paper and a hand towel on arrival. Following that we expect guests to purchase any extra that they may need. I believe this is a standard for the majority of rental properties. - We will of course address the smell in the crockery cupboard, and i apologise for any dissatisfaction caused. - We will certainly consider replacing the baths at the end of the season. Many thanks again and I certainly hope that we'll see you again in the near future! All the best and kind regards, Angus.

Great villa for a family holiday. Wonderful pool area and gardens.

  • 4 of 5

Spacious, well equipped villa, with four comfortable bedrooms and wonderful outside eating area, gardens and pool. Very conveniently located for both Pollensa and the beach. Ideal for a family holiday.

Great spacious villa and garden full of character

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Xiquita with 3 generations under one roof last Easter.

Since it is a less predictable season I was concerned renting a too small house. Fortunately this property provided not only bedrooms in different parts of the house (ground floor and first floor) there is generous living space, dining area and kitchen to accommodate for all of us. However we were quite lucky and spent many days at the fantastic pool area.

The house is full of character and feels like a real home. The garden compared to some new houses in this area felt so much more lush and mature and also very well maintained. The property has a lot to offer: the outstanding pool area, a huge garden, table tennis, bikes, kids enjoyed the swing, outdoor BBQ, sauna, lots of games, DVD's and WII, a fireplace for some colder evenings. We often went for walks through the quiet surrounding streets, visiting the lambs and horses... There was just so much to do.

We ventured out regularly but our favourite moments were simply going to the town of Pollensa (easy to get to with the bikes provided or a short drive with the car) or simply relaxing at this really lovely property.

We had some specific circumstances and the owner was very helpful and accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. On site a couple was taking care of our immediate needs and was always around to help with the washing machine, etc.

I hope we will stay at Casa Xiquita soon again.

Location

From the Owner

There are hundreds of rental villas in the north of Mallorca and my parents looked at many to buy before they found and fell in love with Font Xiquita. The house and gardens are magical. So close to Pollenca and Puerto Pollenca but when you're in the house or by the pool you feel a million miles from anywhere. Truly possibly the loveliest garden and pool area on the rental market in the north of Mallorca. Our guests tell me the same and keep coming back!
