Interaction with Guests
I actually live in Palma, that's why my friend and neighbour Antonio check guests in and out and help with everything during their stay.
He lives in the house next to the apartment and he's available most of the time.
Located in the heart of the village of Soller, in a pedestrian street, visitors must not find difficult to get to the restaurants, bars, main attractions or park their car hire or take the bus.
From Palma Airport take the bus number 1 to Plaza España. At Plaza España you have two choices: the bus 210 that cost nearly 5EUR or the old train to Soller one of its main attractions and start your trip with the right foot.

It was our first time using Airbnb as travelers, and we have had an absolutely perfect, amazing experience in Rafael’s apartment.
Communications with Rafael were quick, clear and easy. The room itself was huge, more like a large hotel suite, very comfortable, very clean, and stylishly decorated.
The house is located just few steps away from the main square of Sóller, which happens to be, in my opinion, one of the most charming towns of Mallorca.
Definitely a 5 stars Airbnb listing. Thank you Rafael!
My boyfriend and I stayed one week in Soller. The photos on airbnb illustrate the apartment as it is. Very clean and modern furnished. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom spacious.
The only point is, that there is not so much light in the living room. There is a large window in the sleeping room. But there was just one more little window on the other side of the appartment next to the door. The corridor - and at once living room - was always quite dark. Just as well as the kitchen. From the dining corner we had a view to a little terrace surrounded by high walls which was attended as a sorage for old furniture and mattress. The washing machine and the dryer were in use all day so the air in the kitchen was not the best. That´s why we did not cook or spend much time there.
Nonetheless booking and hand-over the keys were smoothy. Every questions previous our stay were replied fast and very kind.
We really enjoyed our stay here in Sóller. The apartment was very clean and modern and everyone was very friendly and welcoming. The shared kitchen and dining area was a good size and had enough pots, crockery etc to dine in if you wanted to. This apartment is so close to the plaza that you don't need to cook at all if you like to eat out, it's literally on your doorstep but tucked around a quiet corner so you don't get any noise from the streets. Antonio was at hand if we needed him for anything too. A great find and perfect for our holiday. We will definitely be back.
Rafael was very responsive and welcoming. We were staying in Sollar, about 30 minutes from Palma. Rafael is located in Palma so he arranged for Antonio, his neighbour in Sollar, to meet us and look after everything. Antonio was delightful and very helpful. The space is very contemporary and in perfect condition. It has a private entrance leading to a small sitting room with a sofa that works as a single bed. Further down the hall is a large contemporary bathroom and a good-sized bedroom. The bedroom has a lot of natural light from an inner courtyard. The shared kitchen is downstairs. The house is located right in the centre of Sollar on a beautiful little street. We had a great experience and certainly hope to return. I would highly recommend Rafael's house.
we stayed for 7 nights in rafaels appartment and it was really nice! Just about 3 min. to the old center with nice coffes and bars but quiet for sleeping. Everything was clean and as pictured, with an well equipped kitchen. Rafael himself wasn't there, but availebal every time. His friend chiki, living next house welcomed us friendly and was helpfull at every time.
I would recommend this nice place to everyone....
Das modern eingerichtete und geräumige Apartment lag sehr zentral in einer wunderschönen engen Altstadtstraße. Der Nachbar Chiki war freundlich und hilfsbereit und bei der Schlüsselübergabe behilflich. Es gab eine vollständig eingerichtete und ausgestattete Küche im EG.
The apartment was extremely clean, modern and well equipped. Although very central, it is located on a quiet street. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning made a big difference.
A 5 star apartment in a great location

About the Host, Rafael G.
I am 31 years old and since I have worked for Airbnb my life has changed positively. I love hosting and taking care of the properties I rent out (they're not mine BTW).
I enjoy the simple things in life: I like reading, listening to music, travelling, eating, conversation and nature.
You are welcome to visit any of my places and I will do my utmost to ensure you have a good experience.
Good place to eat paella at lunch. If you like to try majorcan food order a Pa amb Oli with orange juice at breakfast you wont regret.Plaça de sa Constitució Sóller PM 07100

This is a very small village with a breath taking stone beach where you find natural mud to put over your body. From this beach you can go walking through the coast to Deià.Llucalcari PM 07179
Impressive trees and plants collection. Very well kept Botanic Garden on the way to Soller, right before the tunnel. You can spend there a relaxing and interesting morning or evening.PM 07110
Inspiring place. Beautiful when is sunny, cloudy, raining, when the sea is calm or rough. You can visit while driving from Valldemossa to Deia or vs.
In my opinion, the most wonderful village on the island. Some say it is Soller. Its stoned roads and houses with flower pots hanging and the cats taking sunshine are idilic.Valldemossa PM 07170
One of Majorcas most famous post cards. The movie Atlas of the Clouds with Tom Hanks and Halle Berry was shot here. Every summer theres a free classical musical concert: soulful experience!PM
Bunyalbufar is a small village, near 600 people, with an amazing landscape, cosy bars restaurants and a stone beach with 2 small waterfalls and clear water during the morning. Mind the jellyfish!Banyalbufar PM 07191
If you want to do something different with your friends or surprise your partner go to this place and have a cocktail. I wont say anything about in order to dont spoil the surprise.
The Cathedral Of Palma is the highest of the all gothic cathedrals. Its view from the waterfront is my favourite postcard. For fans of Lord of the Rings: its insides look like Morias hall!Plaça de l'Almoina Palma 07001
Planning to go out? The biggest and most famous disco in the island full with fancy people showing off. If youre looking for sexy chicks with tinny skirts and hunks: Titos is your place.Autovía de Poniente Palma 07014
If visiting Palma in the night I think people over 30 will like this place better than Pacha, Titos etc. Garrito is located in Can Barbara a little bay full with bars and small discos and pubs.Palma de Mallorca, Islas Baleares 07015
Some people go walking some on bike or just driving. It is located almost on the top of a mountain where you will find delicious food and stunning views!PM

Six kilometres long and crowned by an ancient watchtower, Sa Dragonera takes its name from its shape, said to resemble a dragon or because of its inhabitants: little lizards.PM
One of the most famous post cards of Majorca. A lighthouse on top of a 384 meters high cliff. Breathtaking views and road :-P
One of Majorca most famous post cards! White sand beach and shallow blue water. Building free place, dunes and vegetation. Packed with people naked or not. Full with boats anchored. Worth to visit.Plaça del Molí de sa Sal Ses Salines PM 07640
If you have never been inside a cave visit this one. Impressive for its formations and lights. A quartet will play classical music and can jump into a little boat on a lake inside the cave!Carretera de los Coves Manacor 07680
