About Blair

Originally I hail from Sydney but after 19 years in London I am now living on another beautiful island (Mallorca of course) in the South West corner and have done so since 2010.

I use the apartment myself when needing a spot of culture "in the city" and I love every visit. Palma is the perfect city to explore on foot and I never tire of it.

The apartment was fully refurbished in 2013 with no expense spared.

I had sent over 10 Bohemia crystal chandeliers which must be seen for that extra "wow" factor.

Having worked in Interior design for a number of years I have designed the apartment with the same high standard of fittings that I would want to enjoy myself. I hope you like them also.

Blair purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Blair chose Foners

I love this location. It is right in the City centre yet a short walk (10 mins) to Playa de Palma beach or a fantastic stroll or even perhaps a very easy cycle ride to Portixol with all it's cafes and restaurants to discover.

Located in a quiet residential street yet with every convenience you could wish for on your doorstep: Bakery, Butcher, Delicatessen selling great hot chicken amongst other delicacies, a Supermarket and even a Beer Garden directly on the corner. All this and still on the doorstep of the historic Old Centre of Palma.

I love it.

What makes this apartment unique

10 minute walk to the beach.

10 minute walk to Palma Cathedral.

10 minute walk to The Borne - one of "the" shopping streets of Palma.

10 minutes from the cultural and shopping centre of Palma!!!!!

10 minute walk to Plaza Espana / Railway Station to Soller and other parts of the island.

5 minute walk to El Corte Ingles Department Store.

Eroski supermarket diagonally opposite.

Deli opposite which does fantastic cooked meals for next to nothing.

Butcher's opposite.

Bakery around the corner.

Beer garden right on the corner with cheap beer.

Cheapest coffee in Palma on opposite corner (€1.00 and great coffee).

The Airport bus stops at the top of the street which is a two minute walk to the apartment.

I don't know what else to say ;-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Blair was the perfect host; he met us at the Apt and showed us around, afterwards we all popped a couple of doors down to the lovely beer garden, which soon became our second home, especially after a day on the beach, or for cheap post dinner drinks.

I must admit, prior to booking I was slightly concerned about the apt being in a residential area but my reservations soon vanished after a couple of minutes. Although it’s just outside what I call “the city walls”, it is only 10 mins walk to the beach and the same to Plaza Cort and Plaza Espana, two of our favourite squares. The Avenidos’ were literally 100m from the apartment and directly opposite a well-stocked supermarket.

The two double bed apt is on the 3rd floor so not ideal for anyone with accessibility issues. It has been completely renovated with the gorgeous bathroom and kitchen taking equal number one spot! The kitchen was so well equipped; we didn’t even get time to use all the gadgets.

The lounge is fully air conditioned, playing host to a massive TV with Sky, wifi, Bose docking station, easy chairs, sofa and table.

Blair kindly invited us to join him for lunch in Soller, where he was meeting friends, which was a lovely touch and the food was 5 star too!

On the final day Blair met us and even drove us to the Airport.

I love Palma and this quirky apt added its own distinctive dimension to the beautiful city.

Calm and central flat, very clean and organized

  • 4 of 5

Were happy to stay in this appartement, it was a very nice city trip. The flat is cozy and clean and despite its central location, it is rather calm. The Owner was always kind and helped us out with many tips for near restaurants and trips. Recommended for short stays as well as for a longer holiday!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Yes considering the apartment's central location it is in a calm residential street yet a short walk from all the action Palma has to offer. Looking forward to welcoming your group back again. B

When got the key from the owner, he also provided us with good tips for out stay, trips and restaurants.

We enjoyed the appartment that was close to Palma centre, it gave us opportunity to walk all around the city and enjoy the city.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ian. It was a pleasure to meet you and Mary. Next time you will have to stay longer as I don't think you can see everything Palma has to offer in four days. B

A stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5

Blair was amazing. So helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The flat was verging on the palatial; beautifully decorated with stunning chandeliers in almost every room. The kitchen was great with its matching ovens, big hob and and the really modern fan (I wish I had that at home). Every day for the whole week I found something in the flat I hadn't noticed before. The street is ordinary, unlike the flat, but it was quite convenient to everything. We walked everywhere either to the beach or into the town. It was all quite easy.

Great place, great landlord!

  • 5 of 5

Nice and cosy appartment, with a very well equipped kitchen and air conditioned living and master bedroom, at walking distance from both plaza major and the first beaches. Blair gave us tons of practical tips and made us feel very welcome! Great base for exploring both Palma as well as the Island of Mallorca.

There can't be many as good as this!

  • 5 of 5

100% from start to finish. Beautiful apartment finished to an extremely high standard. Superbly appointed kitchen with all mod-cons. Luxury bathroom straight out of 'Homes and Gardens' magazine. Perfect location. Lots of shops and restaurants virtually on the doorstep. Just a short walk to the really nice beach and an equally short walk to the very attractive town centre . Absolutely spotless apartment. The owner was very helpful and being Australian speaks perfect English. Only one downside. It's on the third floor with no lift and so would not suit anyone with a walking or breathing problem, but if you are able bodied it's well worth walking up three floors for. By the end of the week we were easily going up the stairs. Would we go there again? Definitely!!

Owner's Response: It was great to meet Mike, Tamara & Juliana and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You forgot to mention that there is a Supermarket diagonally opposite the apartment so you effectively have everything you need for a great holiday right on your door step.

Location

Nearest Airport

Palma de Mallorca
Nearest Ferry
2 Kilometres
Port of Palma
Nearest Beach
50 Metres
Palma main beach
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Playa de Palma beach is a 10 minute stroll down the road. A very easy walk.

Portixol is a 20 minute walk away and well worth a visit with all it's bars and restaurants.

The good climate allows you to practice sailing, fishing, walking, bicycle, tennis, marathons, water-parks, nature beaches along with a huge diversity of landscapes.

Travel:

How to get there: It is only 9km to the airport and 2km to the port. There is ample public parking directly in front of the apartment and in an underground one nearby but a car is not needed. The bus from the airport stops at the top of the street and then it is a two minute walk to the apartment. You are also a 10 minute walk to the main bus and train station meaning you can get to anywhere on the island with ease.

Distances:

The beach, the Cathedral, the galleries, tapas bars, and cafes are all on your doorstep.
