Sleep in a Boat Bed in this Unique Boat House by the Sea



Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Adorable one-bedroom house in front of the sea

A modernised tiny property with thick white-washed walls and rustic features, The Boat House has a ground floor living area that opens to a sunny patio where you can enjoy meals while watching local fishing boats coming and going and, further out to sea, yachts sailing by. The upper floor features a boat-shaped double bed from which you can view the sea, a seating area and a shower room. 50 metres from your front door Biniancolla cove with its charming traditional houses has a restaurant and a small beach – it's the perfect place for swimming and relaxing. It is also not far from two large beaches: lovely Punta Prima, one mile/1.6 kms away by car or scooter (or 20 minutes walk along the scenic coastal path) with its restaurants, supermarkets pharmacy, etc., and beautiful Binibeca beach about the same distance in the other direction.

Perfect Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It is larger on the inside than the photos suggest due to the high ceilings which keep it cool as well. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need and there is outdoor furniture. The very comfortable bed has a direct sea view and the shower is great. Plenty of towels as mentioned make it better for a small suitcase trip.

35 seconds walk to the bay where you can walk in for a swim or even less time if you have rock shoes and fancy jumping off the coast.

Pefect for a quiet break as the house is surrounded by local residents and there is always space to park in front of the boat house. You will need a car!

Lovely little boathouse

  • 5 of 5

Great location between Punta Prima & Binibeca. Italian restaurant more or less next door plus another place to eat 3min walk in opposite direction. Easy 15min walk to shops, bars etc in Punta Prima via road and/or coastal path. Little road train stops right outside the back of house! Accommodation in quiet spot overlooking sea and facilities in house are excellent, very clean and well maintained. Perfect for a couple wanting a romantic get away. Would highly recommend and hope to return.

What a lovely little gem!

  • 5 of 5

The boat house is located in a very quiet road. The neighbours are all locals and extremely friendly. We were made to feel very welcome.

The house itself is small but perfectly proportioned. It has everything you need for that perfect get-away. It’s the most well stocked place I have stayed in; there were more than enough pots, pans, tea towels, rubbish bags, pegs etc! The list is endless. It made a nice change to not have to buy everything from scratch.

The view is absolutely stunning; waking up each morning overlooking the sea watching the sun rise is amazing.

Our local “La Baia” is a fantastic Italian. The owners are very friendly and helpful when we had a problem ordering a taxi. We found it easier to order taxis to pick us up in front of the restaurant which is about a 2 minute walk from the boat house. Once the taxi firm have your number (there is only one phone number for the island) you’ll have no problems.

Punta Prima is about a 15 minute walk. There you can find the beach and numerous restaurants. We like Can Santi, the food is good, reasonably priced but you do get lots of it!

Overall I’d have to say this was our best holiday yet to Menorca. I would definitely stay there again.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Boathouse is a lovely quiet villa in which to stay. Close enough to Punta Prima for its restaurants, shops and beach but far enough away for the peace and quiet.

The villa is beautifully furnished and equipped. I would highly recommend it.

Boathouse - Biniacolla

  • 4 of 5

Have spent a delightful 9 days in Minorca. We stayed at 'The Boathouse' in Biniacolla. The Boathouse is a lovely quaint place to stay, which is well maintained. Would recommend car hire as there are no shops / supermarket closeby.

Plenty of nice restaurants in Cala Torret and Binibeca (5 mins by car).

Look forward to returning soon

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach: The small fishing cove of Biniancolla has its own tiny beach and two other larger beaches are nearby: Punta Prima beach (1 mile/1.6 kms or 10 minutes' walk) in one direction, and Binibeca beach (3 kms or 20 minutes' walk) in the other direction.

Travel: Mahon airport is 25 minutes by car or taxi. Buses run from Punta Prima to St Lluis and Mahon.

Distances: There is a restaurant at Biniancolla cove overlooking the water, and a second one a mere stroll away, but there are no shops or supermarkets in Binancolla so food and other necessities need to be bought at Punta Prima.

Further Details: The reception area of the Hotel Sur Menorca has WiFi and this is just a short stroll from The Boat House. Punta Prima resort has a pharmacy, a 'hole-in-the-wall' for cash, a number of restaurants, two supermarkets, car hire and at least one bar/restaurant that has WiFi.
