About Alistair Rothwell

This family owned holiday home over the last year has been expanded to include a fourth bedroom and a private swimming pool. Also the villa has been modernised throughout and 2013 is the launch year of the property to the rental market. The project has been managed by family members, Alistair and Nikie, and they manage the rental side of the property.

Nicki is a designer and therefore has had the major influence on the recent modernisation, where Alistair is an accountant so gets the less fun financial aspects.

The property has been in the family since 1977 as a holiday home. During this time the family has made many local friends.

Alistair Rothwell purchased this villa in 1970

Why Alistair Rothwell chose Es Migjorn Gran

A modern design for the 1970's undertaken by a US designer to provide shape and light into the property with unblocked views of the sea.

Lovely clean seas with a little offshore island for snorkelling and adventuring.

What makes this villa unique

Beachside property with easy access to the quieter beach and popular beachbar.

Easy walking distance to shops.

Safe environment for children.

Activity beach a small distance away.

Nice villa in good location

  • 4 of 5

We chose this house because it was so close to the beach. It isn't directly on the sandy part but it is only a few minutes walk.

The house itself felt a little dated but there was enough room for the 7 of us and it was very clean. The aircon in the bedrooms was very good and they were all nice and cool. However the rest of the house got very hot on the hottest days.

The pool was lovely and a nice temperature with a fabulous outlook. I'm not sure I would be relaxed taking a toddler with the very different up and down levels of the patio. The seating area makes an excellent evening bbq place where we saw some great sunsets.

The hotel next door does get a bit noisy, especially on Saturday evenings and Sundays but the rest of the time it is pretty quiet.

Santo Thomas is very small and there is not a huge choice of restaurants, but we found we didn't have far to drive to find more. The few shops are very touristy but we were not there to shop. Having said that it is very close to the Mascaro shoe outlet factory which is excellent.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your reply, Glad you enjoyed your stay even though the resort was too quiet for you. I wanted to reply to comment that following a large refurbishment exercise in 2012 we have continued to reinvest into the property every year to date. We have looked at cooling the the large lounge space and it is under consideration presently. The complexity is the large space together with outside access and various open corridor walkways, makes air conditioning an unpractical option. Also, the design of the outside area is that the pool and outside table patio are all on one level and optionally fenced to give families the safe area with toddlers. This consideration is not provided by many villas. The other patio area is designed for unsupervised relaxing for 3yrs+

Great villa in wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We were travelling as a four generation family from ages 2-79 and every single one of us were gutted to leave the villa! Hornblower is perfect for families, being right on the beach is great and the pool was warm from the sun and our 5 year old literally played in it all day. Rooms are all large, clean and well equipped. Alastair has thought of everything and Miguel was around most days to check the pool and everything else was fine. Es Pins is by far the best restaurant in our opinion and well worth the 10 min stroll along the beach walk. We all loved Hornblower and hope to be back next year!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Hornblower was all we hoped it to be an more. Travelled with family ages ranging from 22 to 83. The property was extremely well equipped with attention to detail and fabulous views. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival as was the pool. Location brilliant within easy walking distance of a selection of bars and restaurants. The owner was extremely helpful. We hope to visit again - would have loved to have stayed for much longer than a week. We have already recommended Hornblower to our friends.

As my son said"a taste of paradise"

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed in Santo Tomas 34 years ago with two small children.

We came back and stayed in a hotel for an anniversary.

We came back again with family and grandchildren and stayed in two villas ,two years on the run.

Then this year we stayed in Hornblower.

A villa virtually on the beach, a pool warmed by the sun all day, a lovely interior with all you require, shade when needed, restaurants in an easy stroll, paradise indeed.

The owner was easily contactable and answered all questions.

As my grandson said on landing at Gatwick "can we go back tomorrow Grandma".? A sentiment held by us all!

Thanks, Alistair

We stayed at Hornblower House with another family of four this August. The villa was very well equipped with a fabulous Weber barbecue making self-catering a doddle. The villa itself is a great size for two families and well laid out. The pool was a decent size and we were a stone's throw from a clean, sandy beach with warm, crystal clear water - shallow enough for the children to paddle and swim safely. The seafront promenade running from one end of Santo Tomas to the other was a particular delight - especially at night when it was illuminated. Overall, the location was perfect for an easy relaxed holiday with kids.
