About the Owner

I'm from the midlands and I work at Birmingham Airport.

I bought the apartment in 2013 and have been investing in it by upgrading the interior over the last few years. I like to treat it as a home from home and hope that my guests appreciate it.

Perfect holiday retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described and very well equipped. The standard of fixtures and fittings is good and the layout is really well designed. The apartment is small but is plenty big enough for 2 people. There is a really helpful welcome pack which includes details of the apartment and resort such as restaurant recommendations etc. Highly recommended.

We visited for the first two weeks of September when the complex was fairly quiet. There are plenty of sunbeds around the pool area which is well maintained. The pool is shaded and has 3 distinct areas so suitable for all ages.

Super apartment !

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in san Jean Irene. We had a lovely time. The apartment is fantastic. It is beautifully decorated and literally has everything you could possibly need. The bed is one of the comfiest we have ever slept on while on holiday. It is close to all the restaurants and bars. We enjoyed a few nights out eating and nights eating on the large patio. There are 2 supermarkets across the road. Both have everything you need. We hired a car visited Mahon, ciutadella and several little towns/villages further south of the island. The car also came in handy driving to the beautiful beach! If we were to visit Cala en porter again we would not hesitate to hire Keith's very homely apartment.

Lovely Aparrtment in a Good Location

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Siesta Mar 2 and had a great time. The apartment is in a very good location, only a couple of minutes walk to restaurants, bars, supermarkets etc. We were very impressed with the decoration of the apartment, it had a really homely feel and Keith has done an excellent job of making the most of the space, and it is nice that he has not scrimped on the amenities,- we found the Bose speakers to be very nice for listening to music out on the terrace in the evening, and when we had bad weather one day the apple TV was good for watching films. The apartment was lovely and clean when we arrived, and Keith was very prompt in answering our various queries and gave very good customer service throughout. The only flaw to our holiday was some badly behaved children round the pool area, but obviously that is not the apartments fault at all, just a thought to bear in mind if you are looking for a peaceful break I would consider avoiding during school holidays as there are lots of kids around the pool area! If we were to come back to Cala en Porter we would consider staying in this apartment again and would not hesitate in recommending it to friends and family.

2 weeks of bliss

  • 5 of 5

We are delighted to say that we have just spent 2 weeks at this truly fabulous apartment, enjoying many fine aspects of a well executed project. The apartment offers comfort and a fresh feel - of course, the star of the show is the sun terrace. The seating area has fold back doors on to this terrace where you can enjoy breakfast and a view to the blue blue sea, over a lovely swimming pool area and gardens filled with flowers and palm trees. Fresh bread from the bakery across the road too! The shower room has a double shower with the addition of a rain forest shower head and an opening window, always a bonus in a warm climate. The bed is super comfy with lovely linen and quality mattress and pillows....everything white and super clean! The kitchen will meet all of your needs - spacious, well designed, quality utensils and crockery plus a full size fridge! The apartment offers privacy in a peaceful setting and we will definitely return. We preferred local cheaper eats which were very busy but that's a good sign and wouldn't recommend an over rated brasserie nearby. Keith provided excellent customer service and never let us down.The town of Cala en Porter is very clean and it's only E1.70 for a 25 minute trip to fabulous Mahon! The beach is well worth a visit and a safe , gentle and warm sea for a daily swim.....burn off more calories with the 190 step climb back up or take a slower meander back up the road. But hey.....go see for yourselves; you won't be disappointed choosing San Jean Irene!

From the Owner

I love Menorca and in particular all of the south coast resorts. It is very uncommercialised, the locals are very friendly and I like the laid back atmosphere wherever you go. Cala en Porter is a lovely little resort, with everything you need close to hand, a great place to chill out and get away from it all. The apartment is named after my Mom, Jean Irene. She loved Menorca and we spent many a happy holiday there and have stayed all over the island. Everyone I know who visits the island seems to instantly take a liking to it, as although it is Spanish, it still has an English feel to it, maybe due to the fact that it was ruled by the English several times in it's long history. Proof of which you will see in the architecture of both Mahon and the old capital Ciudadella.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Menorca (Mahon) at 6 Miles Nearest Barpub : Siesta Mar at 10 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Siesta Mar at 10 Metres Nearest Beach : Cala en Porter at 0.5 Miles Car: recommended

A beautiful bay awaits you, with fine golden sand, a crystal blue sea and beach bars and restaurants.

Cala en Porter beach is extremely safe and has a red cross station throughout the summer months.

Further Details:

The small, exciting resort of Cala en Porter lies on the south coast of Menorca, attracting visitors from all over the world to laze on the fine white sands which cover the small beach in front of the resort. It is the largest resort in the Alaior district of Menorca, offering some lively nightlife for Menorcan standards, although it is not a rowdy destination by any means.

Protected by steep cliffs on either side, the Cala en Porter Beach slopes gently into the warm waters of the Mediterranean, creating the perfect, sheltered beach for both sunbathing and swimming. There are a number of small refreshment stalls on the beach, including a couple of bars, and there is a small train which can take you back up the steep hill towards the villas and rental apartments in Cala en Porter itself.

The Caves of Cala en Porter and the Calas Caves are wonderful places to explore. Children and parents alike can be seen excitedly investigating the highly arched and hugely atmospheric caves, which also offer some of the nicest sea views along the south coast

Walkers will be delighted by taking a rental apartment in Cala en Porter. The highest peak in Menorca, Mount Toro and the sanctuary of Mare de Deu del Toro are great places to walk and relax. Bird lovers flock to the area, as the sanctuary is a favoured breeding ground for many of Menorca’s wetland birds. The local riding stables do a roaring trade, especially during the summer with trails towards Mount Toro, and if you would like to go riding whilst in Cala en Porter, early booking is essential.

You will find a large selection of bars and restaurants all within a 5 minute walk of the apartment.

Other things to do whilst your in Menorca:

A visit to Mahon and a glass bottom boat trip around the harbour.

A visit to the following popular resorts - Binibequer, Punta Prima, Son Bou, Santa Tomas, Cala Galdana, Arenal d'en castle, Cala en Bosch.
