Had a great time in a lovely location. Thank you.
As good now as 19 years ago
We arrived and the welcome pack was exceptional, and that set the tone for the rest of our stay in this lovely villa with a rustic setting. It was thoroughly enjoyable, this is our second stay at this villa. Our first stay was 19 years ago when we came as a family of 4 with two young children to celebrate our honeymoon, and it was just as delightful this time around. The facilities were clean and we had everything we needed. The owners Maria and Juan were very friendly and sorted out the broken washing machine quickly, causing us minimal disruption during our stay. We have no complaints. Our only advice to other holiday makers would be take insect repellent.
Peace and quiet
We have stayed here twice now. We choose it primarily for exceptional privacy, peace and quiet. And the garden and outside area are simply lovely. Juan and Maria are lovely hosts.
I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay in our villa. Many thanks for your comments, you will always be welcomed,
Best wishes, Juan and Maria.
Peaceful villa that is 15 minutes from lovely beach
Great location, very good outside area with a pool and lounge and the views are great. As expected with rural surrounding lots of insect. Inside the villa needs TLC.
Lovely, relaxing and private
The property is great and is just as described and shown on the website. The sheep and lambs in the field next door were really good fun and our boys enjoyed making friends with them. Ripe figs straight from the tree was a real treat. The property was easy to find with the directions and easy reach by car for both Alcúdia and Pollensa. The road running past the property between the 2 towns is narrow though with no pavement or even a ditch in paces to jum into to avoid cars so we didn’t think it sensible to walk in (it was too hot anyway!) We enjoyed our stay and especially liked the feeling of privacy, despite the property being semi detached. The dining area outside and the seating areas were shaded which was welcome and meant we spent almost the whole time outside. The cooking facilities looked basic at first but actually everything essential was there (with maybe the exceptions n of an oven glove?) We managed home cooked meals to mix and match with the good restaurants in Pollensa. We’d recommend this property and would visit again. Juan and Maria were friendly and helpful - thank you to you both!
"very glad you have enjoyed your stay in the villa, many thanks for taking such a good care of the house and you would be allways welcome, best wishes for you both, Juan & Maria"
Beautiful typical Mallorcan residence in a peaceful area surrounded by outstanding views.
Our family of 4 loved Casa Martin, we enjoyed the seclusion of the countryside villa but yet it was easy to reach both Alcudia & Puerto Pollensa within 10 mins by car. It is to be noted that it is not detached but backs onto another residence so you can hear the neighbours but was not a problem for us.
The interior is typical Mallorcan - it was simple & clean. We had a problem with the drains but Juan & Maria were straight round & sorted it. We recommend that both bathrooms are constantly used so that water traps do not evaporate ensuring it smells ok throughout your stay! Our daughters aged 13 & 9 loved the villa & it's fantastic pool. The garden is surrounded by open countryside & the sheep added to the personality of the property & kept us all entertained. My husband is not one for sunbathing so the shaded seated area was fantastic for chilling out and reading. The sun terrace at the side of the pool was great & had sun all day long. Beach towels are provided which is great if travelling like we did with minimum baggage allowance. There is also a washing machine but did not use it as didnt wear that many clothes - we lived in our bikinis & shorts! Make sure you take mosquito repellent - I forgot & regretted it when we got badly bitten on the first night! The beds & pillows are really comfy & air conditioning in both bedrooms means a good night sleep can be had! Overall we had a fantastic stay & would definitely return. Thanks Juan & Maria!
very glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Martin,
look forward to see you back in the future,
