Absolute Gem of a cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved every corner, every colour, every view and every sound of the ocean from your comfortable and enchanting cottage in Punta Prima.

If you want to relax, unwind and recharge your batteries then this is the cottage to book for a holiday.

In the evenings enjoy a glass of red wine and enjoy the reflections of the setting sun and silvery moon on the water.

In the mornings go for a refreshing swim in the clear blue waters. Most refreshing.

The restaurants nearby can feed you meals of any choice, and as vegans we found every restaurant eager to please us.

What a great holiday, and we will miss Nelson the visiting seagull who joined us for breakfast, lunch and supper.

Beautiful beach cottage with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Our family, (my husband and I and two daughters age 12 & 14) had a wonderful week here. The cottage is a little piece of paradise at the end of Punta Prima beach. The view across the sea to the lighthouse on the Illa de L'Aire is magical. The cottage itself is delightful, immaculate and well thought out. There is enough space inside and then outside (where we spent most of out time) is a large covered terrace at the side and then a sunny terrace at the front looking out to the sea. The advantage of being located in Punta Prima is that you can easily walk to the supermarket, shops, market stalls,restaurants and main beach. Although it is a quiet resort, there were a few low key events in the evenings such as a Spanish horse display, a jazz band and pony rides which we could watch from just outside the cottage. Also the road is a pedestrian area most of the time so it was safe for the kids to go out on their own. The main beach is fine and the sea is good for swimming. There is a smaller, more rockier beach nearer the cottage which is good for snorkelling off. In the other direction from the cottage you can walk the Cami de Cavalls (coast path) or clamber over the rocks and go rock pooling. You can also hire canoes etc and access the sea beside the cottage. The owners, Heike and Samir provided great customer service. Heike managed our booking and was very helpful before the holiday and then during our stay, Samir popped in occasionally to check everything was ok. I would definitely recommend this property and we may be back next year. Some of my family were staying in a nearby hotel and they are going to book the beach cottage next time! Thank you Samir and Heike for a lovely holiday.

Dream Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I’m not really sure where to start with this beautiful property!! My husband and I travelled with my Dad who is a little bit disabled. We’ve stayed several times now and are due to go back in August this year.

Arrival at The Caseta is something pretty special – immediately the sea view and the lighthouse are on your doorstep which is beautiful but once inside the house you will fall in love all over again! The house itself is decorated in an extremely calming and sophisticated style with everything focussed on the sea (which is outside the door!!) and authentic pieces of furniture. It is completely immaculate. Personally, I love to get dressed for the evening in the beautiful, airy double bedroom with lots of wardrobe space, a hairdryer and a lovely bathroom.

Outside, literally on the beach, there are sun loungers, table & chairs, a BBQ (fantastic for lunch time sausages, burgers & salad) and a couple of steps – then you’re on the sand!

My Dad took the twin room and also had his own bathroom which is surprisingly large with shower, WC and sink. It’s important to understand that anyone can be comfortable here – everything is flat with direct access to the beach and jetty so if walking’s a problem then this is a dream.

Everything you could ever need is in the Caseta, from cooker, pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, microwave, washing machine, new fridge / freezer and a lovely coffee machine. The best thing is that the house is very old and original but has been restored to an immaculate standard. It is so clean and comfortable – we wish we could live there!

If you like people watching you will see everything from elderly couples to babies, fast asleep in their prams after an exhausting day on the beautiful white beach and playing in the gorgeous pure turquoise sea.

On arrival from Mahon Airport (which is the easiest airport we’ve ever been to), get to the ‘Anchor’ roundabout, and then you’ll know you’ve definitely arrived in Punta Prima – absolutely stunning!!

We cannot thank Heike & Samir enough for welcoming us in this beautiful place – we are so excited to go back!!

The best beach house in Europe?

  • 5 of 5

I've owned a house in Punta Prima for about fifteen years, so I know the resort well. This year, for reasons I won't bore you with, we decided to rent Samir and Heike's cottage on the beach. We were not disappointed. They've done it beautifully and have thought of everything. What I like about the cottage in particular is that the proportions suit a summer holiday on the beach perfectly. Basically, you only ever go inside to cook or sleep. The rest of the time, you're outside. And that's when the vast terrace comes into its own. That's not to say the house itself is cramped. Far from it. The sitting room is a good size and so are the two bedrooms. For a family of four, there's more than enough room. But the best thing is being right on the beach. I cannot begin to describe how magical it is to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the Med gently lapping on the sandy beach just yards from the house. It is beyond perfect. Thank you Samir and Heike for a holiday that'll live with us for ever.

Fantastic Cottage, Amazing Location!!

  • 5 of 5

If you love beach holidays, you'll love this cottage! The location was absolutely perfect for our family of four, with the beach literally on your back doorstep. The owners Heike and Samir are so friendly, helpful and very accommodating.

The accommodation is very clean, beautifully decorated and has a lovely colour scheme throughout. You have views of the ocean from the lounge, kitchen and main bedroom window. The kitchen is fully equipped, with oven, hob, fridge/freezer, toaster, utensils, pots/pans etc. Lots of storage space in both bedrooms and a large lounge area.

It has a lovely covered dining terrace, with large table and the most amazing views of the ocean. The outer terrace has four sunbeds (added bonus that you don't need to hire them out everyday as you do on the main beach!), table and 4 chairs with parasol, a BBQ and additional seating. The cottage has WiFi and a great music system, perfect to listen to while you're sunbathing on the terrace!

Punta Prima is a very small, quiet resort, with just a few shops and bars but that's just how we like it. The cottage is situated right at the far end of the main promenade, so the supermarkets, shops, restaurants, chemist and hairdresser are literally only a few steps away. After trying a few of the restaurants, we decided that El Faro was the best place to eat. The owner and staff were amazing, so friendly and the food superb, with views overlooking the beach while you ate.

I would highly recommend this property to rent and we will definitely be booking for next year. If you are looking for a chilled out, beach holiday in a quiet resort this place is definitely for you. We were sad to leave, especially the children, we'll miss listening to the ocean waves on a night, getting up first thing in the morning and having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beach. You literally have everything you need on your doorstep and we are so looking forward to visiting again next year.

Thank you Heike & Samir for such a wonderful holiday.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The white, sandy beach of Punta Prima is on your door step and is considered one of the best waters on the island. The turquoise sea is shallow for a long way out so is safe for children and good for snorkelling. During the summer a full time life guard is on constant watch. The promenade is fringed with shops, bars, supermarkets, pharmacy and restaurants. There is an attractive toddler and children's park close to the beach. There is a sport facility with water park, mini golf, tennis and pool.

Travel:

Mahon airport is an easy 15 minutes drive. Mahon and its unique natural harbour with marinas and restaurants, the historic city with fish market can be reached within 20 minutes. There are public buses available. Cars, motorbikes and bicycles can be hired locally. The newly restored 'Cami de Cavals' provides a clearly marked coastal path around the island perfect for walking, horse riding and mountain biking.

Distances:

The island of Menorca is approximately 33 miles x 10 miles so nowhere is very far away. Bus services in the summer months are good, but car hire would greatly enhance accessibility to the dozens of idyllic secret beaches. The small town of Sant Lluis is just 4 km away and provides a wealth of shops and restaurants. The capital city of Menorca, Mahon, is just 7 km away.

Further Details:

Windsurfing, wave surfing, paddle boards and kayaks can be hired next to the house.

Excursions into the countryside as well as remote beaches and bays can be arranged through local guides.
