Very nice apartment with great facilities. David was very helpful on our arrival. Car hire is required for touring the island. Easy access by train into Palma, 15 minutes journey time. Shopping centre nearby for evening meals etc and ALDI supermarket for stocking up the fridge. Overall our teenage kids really enjoyed the pools and sunbathing on roof terrace. Very happy and would return again.
We perhaps should've checked out how far out the property is and arranged car hire prior to our stay. With two young kids with us and fabulous roasting weather we had to hire a car while there to help us get around. Train station is about a 15 minute walk away & festival park is also about 15 minute walk. The apartment is beautiful and has so much potential. However the cleanliness was not maintained to the standard it should've been. Particularly the kitchen & bathrooms were dirty. We did appreciate that we were given early access to the property at 1pm instead of 3 due to our early flight time however the previous holidaymakers checked out at 10am and 3 hours is sufficient time to at least make sure the essential areas like bathrooms and kitchens are suitably cleaned. We would've tried to discuss this with Dave but we'd tried numerous times to contact him about continual problems with the hot water and couldn't get hold of him. Dave called us about a week in to the holiday and when I explained about the hot water he assured me should be working fine even though the problems with it continued throughout the whole 10 day holiday. At this point it was too late to discuss the cleanliness given we only had 3 days left of our holiday.
The swimming pool, balcony and roof terrace are amazing, we really enjoyed our time there.
Although this apartment was a bit far out for us we did have a lovely holiday and explored the island once we had a car which was fabulous. Can't fault Dave on how friendly and helpful he was prior to the holiday and on arrival/departure just very disappointing about the cleanliness and hot water.
It´s exciting to try out new areas and this was perfect for us. A quiet neighborhood away from the tourist areas but with only a 10 min drive into the center of Palma and with shopping centers nearby. The apartment was beautiful, clean and comfortable with a afternoon shade balcony and a beautiful roof terrace with sunbeds and bbq. The beds were comfortable(important) and we felt at home with the nice furniture(mostly IKEA).
We really enjoyed the pool area that also was very nice and clean.
Thanks to the owners for their effort to make us feel welcome and we will return if possible.

Wonderful, quiet apartment with amazing views of pool from balcony and mountains from rooftop
We were at the duplex with 2 adults, 2 children in February. We had a wonderful time even though the weather was rather windy and sometimes cool. Its location was great, 5-10 minutes walk through a little forest path to the grocery store and Festival Park mall, and in a very quiet area where locals live. Dave was there to meet us in the morning, as our flight arrived early in the day. His directions were superb so we didn't need the navigation device. He was friendly, uncomplicated and punctual both on arrival and departure. We were there for tennis and Dave even looked up where the tennis academy was and gave us directions to get there. Lovely decor and colour combinations in the apartment. It had a warm feeling, just like home! The kitchen was well equiped, even with an electric citrus presser for the fresh Mallorcan oranges we got from the market. The bedrooms had lots of pillows, blankets and closet space with tons of hangers. There was a washing machine, essential when traveling with young children. Bathrooms were clean and well equiped with towels, toilet paper and toileteries for the 10 days we were there. Heaters worked well for the evenings when temperatures dropped. It was a pity that we could not spend more time on the balcony and the roof due to the wind, or use the amazing-looking pool. We look forward to coming back in the future. Thanks Liz and Dave for such a nice experience in Mallorca!
Splendid and peaceful. Highly recommended
Thanks David and Elizabeth. This is the second time we visit David 's house and still being wonderful. The house is fully equiped and the swimminpol is amazing. We have a child of 3 years all and she loved it. The property is really closed to Palma, about 10 min. by car. It's really well comunicated to supermarket and also for planning the day for enjoying at the beach. Also, the Festival park shopping center is really close and has cinemas and amenities for children and restaurants.
The house has comfortable beds and clean towels. David is the perfect host, he provided us all the attention and always with a smile, really appreciated. We felt at home. The house also has umbrellas for the beach and chairs so it is not necessary to bring/buy yours. We will come back for sure. Thank you for sharing your house with us.
muchas gracias David and Elizabeth. Es la segunda vez que visitamos su casa y nos encanta. Está muy bien comunicasda, a unos 10 min de Palma en coche y muy céntrica para ir a cualquier playa. Muy cerca está el Festival park, donde se puede disfrutar de compras, cines, restaurantes y atracciones para niños.
Respecto a la casa, las camas son confortables y está totalmente equipada. La piscina es una delicia y nuestra hija de 3 años disfrutó enormemente en ella. David es un anfitrión estupendo, muy amable y preocupado porque nos sintiéramos como en casa. Volveremos seguro. Muchas gracias por hacer que nuestras vacaciones hayan sido de nuevo fantásticas. Un fuerte abrazo. Cristian, maribel y Victoria
