Ensuite, garden & pool in Sóller, I

House - Private room · Carrer de Canals, Sóller, Balearic Islands 07100, Spain

One of two available rooms.Ensuite double in annexe of 16th-century palacio in centre of Soller, with garden and pool. 1-min walk to main plaza. 30 mins walk to the beach at Port Sóller, or 15 minutes by the historic tram. 3-night minimum stay in summer.

The Space

Beautiful, newly restored double room on first floor in the annexe to our main house, a palacio with a lush garden and pool in the centre of Sóller. The ensuite upstairs is also available should there be four of you. If you just book the one room, you might bump into delightful fellow airbnbers from time to time in the garden who are also staying.

Guest Access

Use of our garden and pool. There's wifi, though bear in mind the old walls are thick and you might have to wander about a bit to pick up signal. If you're staying for a week, you can use our washer and dryer and we can register you as a temporary Soller resident, giving you discount on tram and train (1 euro instead of 5). Also, despite the "bnb" we don't provide breakfast - but there are plenty of places on the nearby square.

Interaction with Guests

We're here in our own house, nextdoor if you require anything and we're happy to give you a crash course in what to do and where to go. Access to the room is through the vast entrance hall in the main house and then through garden.

The Neighborhood

The house is less than a minute walking to the buzzing main square, packed with bars and restaurants, and 30 seconds to the tram stop and train station. You can walk to the beach in about 40 minutes or take the tram. There are beautiful walks on the edge of town and to the surrounding villages (Deia and Fornalutx). All the shops and the supermarket within walking distance.

Getting around

Stunning train to Palma (1 hour) or bus (30 mins). If you're arriving at Palma airport after 6.30pm, though, you'll miss the last bus/train. To port by tram in 15 mins. Bus to Deia 15 mins. You can happily stay here without the need to rent a car, though you might consider this option if you want to discover more of the island. Parking is free on the main road (ten-mins walk)

Other Things to Note

We have three endearing cats who often sun themselves in the garden, so if you don't like animals or are allergic, steer clear. We're a gay couple, so likewise, homophobes should look elsewhere. We're Barry and Pablo (see profile) and are lively, engaging hosts with a wealth of knowledge and books to share with you if you like.

  • Pablo and Barry, we love you! Our stay at your beautiful house was truly wonderful, dare I say "perfect"?
    The bathroom was even more beautiful than in the photographs and a hot shower like rainwater was the perfect start to every day.
    Since we were able to use the kitchen, we had breakfast in that most luscious garden nearly every day. Unfortunately is was to cold to hop into the pool, but next time...
    Yes, the Palacio isbeautiful, but what really makes this such a special place to stay are the two hosts.From the instant we entered the hallway we were made so very welcome that my daughter and I felt at home the whole time. Apart from being very knowledgeable and informative about Mallorca, both of them are interesting, clever, witty, with lots to tell about history and literature, but above all they are so very warm and interested in others.
    I am aware this sounds more like a love letter than a rational evaluation, but just you go there and I am sure you`ll fall in love with the place and the two guys, too!
    PS. and its really very central and a good starting point for all sorts of wallks

  • Staying with Barry and Pabli was definitely a highlight of our vacation on Mallorca. They have a great house in Sóller, both in size and look. It's located very centrally, and a great starting point for exploring Sóller and the surroundings.
    Even better than the house is the hospitality Barry and Pablo show - very relaxed, open, and welcoming. They make you feel at home from the minute you enter the house.
    I can only recommend staying at their place.

  • Barry and Pablo were fantastic hosts with a marvelous old Villa in the heart of Soller. They offered great suggestions and local knowledge as well (email hidden)ly cast of characters and conversation in the main house if you choose to join in. If its peace and tranquility you are looking for this place is also for you. The guest house in everything you can ask for, from old spanish tiled floors to an all marble bath larger than my London bedroom. Coffee by the pool each morning with the cats was such a peaceful way to start the day. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks again Barry and Pablo!

  • Our stay in Barry's and Pablo's house was great. The house is decorated with an excellent taste and makes a big difference with other properties in the area. The house is very next to the center of town with charming terraces where sit at night and spend a wonderful evening. We highly recommend to stay with Bary and Pablo.
    Thanks for your hospitality.

  • We had a brilliant time with Pablo & Barry. They made us feel super welcome from the start. Barry came with us to show us where to park our hire car which was a great help. We were shown where was good to eat in town and they invited us to have a drink with them on our first night. When we were running low on suncream and mosquito repellent they gave us some to save us having to buy it from the pharmacy. The house is beautiful and the garden has been beautifully designed by Pablo. Our room was nicer than any we would have had in a hotel and had the biggest shower i've ever seen. We loved the trip and it was really down to Barry & Pablo's kindness and advice on good places to go. We especially enjoyed the secluded cove they recommended for swimming :-)

    Thanks again boys, hope we might see you again in a few years! xxx

  • We had the most wonderful stay in Soller. The house of Barry and Pablo is located in the center of Soller. It is a perfect location if you like hiking and exploring the beautiful mountains and seasides. Barry and Pablo are fantastic hosts. They are open, warm and helpfull. We had a lot of pleasant talks and felt really welcome in their home. The house is very comfortable, artistic and beautiful decorated and made us enjoing our trip even more. We are not going to reveal the secrets, you have to see it with your own eyes. We would definitely go back when we have the opportunity. Thanks Barry and Pablo for a fantastic time!

  • We were very fortunate to be Barry's and Pablo's first AirBnB guests. The house and garden are way above expectations, and they were excellent hosts. Funny, flexible, helpful, proactive in communication, and above all they know a lot about the island and places to go to. Highly recommended!
    We would definitely book this place again on a next visit to Mallorca.
    Thanks a ton, Dirk and Hilde
