About Jayne

I was born in York, but have lived in Menorca full time for the past 25 years. My husband is Menorquin and we have a 9 year old son. We have run a succesful estate agency buisness since 1998 and have many years experience letting holiday homes.

Why Jayne chose Minorca (Menorca)

The location is amazing with probably one of the best views in Calan Porter. The sun is on the terrace from lunchtime until the evening. There is a sunblind which is great for having dinner on the terrace or can be rolled back for those wanting to just sit back and soak up the sun. The sunset going over the mountain is spectacular from the terrace with a gin and tonic or 2 ......

Our first visit to Menorca

  • 3 of 5

This was our first visit to Menorca and it didn't disappoint! We are both in our late 50's and were looking for a quiet relaxing break and found that at Jaynes apartment.The description of the apartment is spot on and the view from the balcony is wonderful. As we went in mid

May the season isn't at full swing which suited us perfectly however there is no shortage of eateries bars supermarkets etc. We hired a car for the week and found it very easy to drive around the well maintained roads of the island.The beach is clean and great if you're bringing children as the sea is shallow for quite a distance .There are a lot of steps down to the beach which could be challenging for some people but there's amp!e parking by the beach if you're driving also a couple of restaurant/bar shop and toilets.The weather was beautiful every day and we found the people everywhere to be very welcoming.English widely spoken.Would we visit again? Most definitely YES !

Excellent apartment - Perfect for 2 !

  • 5 of 5

My family have been coming to the island for 25+ years now. This holiday was a week's 'battery recharge' for my husband & I so we picked this apartment for its location & wonderful view with the idea that if the weather wasn't all that good we would still be able to relax and being pre- season also self cater easily if restaurants etc weren't open. The apartment was really lovely, nice & clean, exactly as described equipment wise and in a wonderful spot to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the stunning view over the beach and resort. For self catering it was perfect for just the 2 of us. Though it was only April we were very lucky and had glorious weather almost every day so made the most of it on the beaches, Cala en Porter being only 10 mins away on foot (if you take the heart healthy route up & down the steps !!) Jayne was easy to communicate with, really helpful whenever needed and we have absolutely no reservation recommending. If you've never been to Menorca Cala en Porter is one of the closest beach resorts to get to from the airport (only 10 mins away in the car) yet is quiet and has a lovely beach. There are some nice restaurants, supermarkets, bars etc and for exploring further afield it's a perfect location for getting onto the main road to other resorts on the south & east side of the island, to Mahon or going across to Fornells or Arenal.

I'm sure when it's just us 2 again we will be back !

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review, I am sure that the information will be very helpful to future clients. We will be installing a sunblind on the terrace next week which will be great for dining on the terrace in the hotter months or easily left closed for just sitting back and soaking up the sun. We look forward to you hopefully staying with us again in the near future. Best regards Jayne

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on Menorca. We are 50 & 52 and found it ideal for us. We hired a car at the airport and as I had brought my sat nav with me we were at the apartment in 15 minutes.

When you open the patio doors the view will take your breath away - beautiful is an understatement.

The apartment is nicely decorated & furnished with all you will need whilst on holiday. Me, being a bit thick, had a problem getting the TV system to work, I telephoned Antonio and he was round in 10 minutes to show me how to work it - cheers as I was after watching the football.

The description was bob on and was nice & clean. We met some lovely people whilst there and thanks to the car we got around the island.

Jayne & Antonio's apartment is an ideal base for your holiday, when you come back from the beach and sit on the patio with a cold beer you will see why....

Peace, calm, beauty.

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I (50yrs) recently returned to the UK having spent the last week in June at the apartment. We had not been to Menorca previously and found this a perfect time to visit. The weather was lovely and warm without being too hot (sea warm) and the resort had a quite, pleasant atmosphere. The apartment occupies an elevated position overlooking the bay which affords fabulous views over the crystal clear water (and beach) to the hills beyond - just as it is in the photographs. It was great to breakfast on the balcony in the morning shade and catch the sun in the afternoon / evening. Inside, the property was well laid out with a good sized double bedroom, refurbished bathroom and well equipped kitchen and living area. Benefits included, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge / freezer, air conditioning, bedroom ceiling fan, safe, Wi-Fi, parasol etc. The property is situated a short distance, five minute walk, from the resort which offers varied shops restaurants and bars. On this note, as the property benefits from an elevated position, the walk from the resort, particularly the beach, is quiet steep and maybe an issue for some people. In summary, I would definitely visit again and would highly recommend this property and resort.
