Charming fisherman´s house with sea view and at walking distance from beaches. Come to Porto Colom for an authentic and relaxing break and experience the real Mallorca, away from tourist crowds.

The Space

Imagine…

Wake up every day with a sea view. Swim in a protected beach, live the Spanish way in the heart of a typical fisherman village…. Being the retreat of the Majorcans, Porto Colom is one of the only villages of Mallorca not overcrowded with tourists and which preserved its charm. Majorcans families have been living in this village for several generations and Porto Colom, which is still almost privately owned, has maintained its original flair.

We are offering to rent our family house in the heart of the fisherman village of Porto Colom. What makes our house unique is an incredible view of the sea, every morning when you wake up, its unbeatable location next to a natural park (S'Algar) and at walkable distance of 3 protected beaches (all three at less than 10 minutes walk from the house) and 7 beaches within 15 minutes drive along the east coast of Mallorca.

The house is located in a very quiet street, with sea view of the largest natural harbor of Mallorca, in the historical district of Porto Colom called «Es Riueto».
The house is fully equipped and can sleep up to 4 people.
It is the garden level (no stairs) of a very typical fisherman's house with a lot of character. You enter the house into a very cosy living room with sea view, a fireplace, two comfortable sofas, a flat screen TV and a music player (Ipod dock, CD and radio) to relax and enjoy the view. We also have satelitte TV with over 400 international channels and free high speed wifi available for our guests.
The house has two bedrooms with two double beds (queen beds) that can sleep 4 people. Two bathrooms are available, one with a bath and the other with a shower and two toilets. The kitchen is fully equipped with brand new appliances: vitro-ceramic, oven, refrigerator, microwave, kettle, coffee maker but also full crockery and cutlery, table cloth and napkins. At the extremity of the house you'll find a patio where you can relax and enjoy Mediterranean plants such as aloe vera. A brand new washing machine is at your disposal. Parking is available for free in the street Carme and in the adjacent streets.

The house is of Majorcan construction and has a very ingenious system of ventilation through the patio and the front door. Therefore, you won't feel the heat and you can always enjoy a nice brise. Please note that there are no windows in the bedrooms.

In the street of the house (Carme street) and in the historical area of « Es Riueto », you'll find all kind of shops: bakery, small supermarket at 300 meters, coffee shops and bars at 500 meters, a lot of restaurants serving typical tapas up to fine dining.

Once a small fisherman's village, the city of Porto Colom is organized around the natural harbor (the biggest of the island) and its sandy beaches with crystal clear water. About 100 meters to the house, you will be able to walk into a natural park and swim in the secret beach of Cala s'Algar. Two other sandy beaches (S'arenal and Es babo) are located at a walkable distance (500 and 800 meters from the house). Finally, you will find a very easy access to the big beach of Cala Marsal, located at 1.5 km of the house, where you'll find all the amenities (restaurants, deck chairs, bars).

Porto colom offers a lot of activities: boat rentals (from Zodiac to yaucht), windsurfing, scuba diving, kayak rental, bike rental, yoga, horse riding, golf course less than 3 km (Vall D'Or)...
You also have a bus going to Palma/Felanitx every 1.5 hour (50 minutes trip) and two other bus lines and the bus stop is only 500 meters from the house!

Stay at our family house and enjoy an affordable and authentic Mallorcanese experience. Just ask us and we will be happy to give you tips about the beautiful Porto Colom area !
Also, we greatly appreciate a preliminary message before booking, explaining the purpose of your stay, who you are, etc. and a detailed profile. Once booked, we will send you the best route to reach the house by car or the bus routes.
Before your arrival, please make sure you let us know:
- when you are expecting to arrive and when you want to check-out,
- if you have a mobile phone so you can text us when you are nearby, lost or delayed

We are looking forward to hosting you :)
See you soon,

Claire & Peter

  • Typisch spanische Unterkunft ;-) Reinkommen und im Wohnzimmer stehen, sehr schön. Einfach, aber sehr praktisch eingerichtet, es fehlt nichts, es ist alles vorhanden was benötigt wird und dazu noch viel mehr...Sekt im Kühlschrank, Kaffee, Salz, Öl, Spülmittel, Handtücher, eben all die Dinge, die man sonst zunächst organisieren muss. Mercedes hat uns in Porto Colom in Empfang genommen und uns alles erklärt, dazu noch einige Tipps zum Essen gehen, Strände, Bäcker, Aktivitäten, etc. gegeben. Sehr unkomplizierte Übergabe und ein herzliches Willkommen. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Sehr empfehlenswert das Frühstück oder den Sundowner einfach vor dem Haus an der Hafenmauer, die Bucht 500m vom Haus am frühen Morgen und einfach ein Boot mieten (geht auch ohne Führerschein) und dann die nahegelegen Buchten selbst anfahren.
    Alles in allem, sehr sehr schöne fünf Tage.

  • Claire and Pere Joan's delightful apartment was our home away from home for 2 months, and we definitely felt at home! As hosts they were absolutely wonderful to deal with before and during our stay. We were warmly welcomed by the very friendly Mercedes who we enjoyed our contact with.

    The apartment itself was just as we expected, although we couldn't have imagined how much we would enjoy it. It's a wonderful space which was perfect for myself, my husband and our 9 month old daughter. Claire and Pere Joan had taken the trouble to provide a cot and high chair for our daughter, for which we were so grateful!

    The location is just stunning - we loved waking up to the beautiful view and sitting outside in the evenings watching the sky turn dusky pink and the swallows fly overhead. It's a picturesque and quiet area where the neighbours and the passers-by are all very friendly - we left having made many friends. We frequented the local cafe, bar and supermarket in Es Riueto often, and enjoyed the short walk to town where other services were available. Portocolom is a gorgeous, authentic and friendly town - we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend 2 months.

    S'Algar beach is simply breath taking and we swam there every day, often twice! The other nearby beaches are also lovely, and we enjoyed going there for lunch and a drink with a beautiful view.

    We simply had an amazing experience and we hope we can come back to stay again soon. Thank you Claire and Pere Joan!!

  • Nous avons passé un fabuleux séjour à Portocolom ! La maison est vraiment très agréable et spacieuse. Le quartier est calme, parfait pour des vacances en famille, en amoureux ou entre amis ! Il n'y a pas de touristes, seulement des locaux! Que demander de plus ?! Je recommande vivement cet endroit !!

  • We had an absolute fantastic time at this house. The village of Porto Colom is absolutely magic. It is an authentic (only locals, no tourists) and peaceful little fishermen town, conveniently located (direct bus to Palma and East Coast and all commodities within walking distance).
    We spent a week in this paradise during the last week of October: we were able to swim alone in the beautiful natural park and beach of S'Algar, which is just 5 minutes walk from the house.
    The house itself is very well equipped and is identical to the pictures on Airbnb (the view is even better). All the appliances are new, and you have a lot of nice things including Ipod speakers, free wifi, washing machine, free tea and coffee and a very nice chimney. We felt really well in this paradise, and we really liked the location: right in front of the sea with boats in front of the door!! The hosts are really kind and gave us a lot of useful information. Overall, an excellent experience and a really good value for money!

  • We truly enjoyed our stay in Claire & Peter's house in Porto Colom for a perfectly relaxing holiday in Mallorca.

    The house is just wonderful, and so is the location. We could swim, fish, bike and also visit beautiful places nearby.

    We treasure the idea of coming back here again!

  • Eine tolle Ferienwohnung!! Sehr gemütlich eingerichtet, alles Nötige vorhanden...mehr als das, es war sehr liebevoll vorbereitet - von Präsenten im Kühlschrank bis hin zu sorgfältig erkundeten Sightseeingtipps war alles vorhanden. Waschpulver und Spülmittel haben wir ganz umsonst mitgebracht. :-)
    Außerdem wurden wir wärmstens empfangen, am Bus abgeholt und in alles eingewiesen. Die Kommunikation war unkompliziert und prompt.
    Alles in allem eine sehr empfehlenswerte Ferienwohnung, die wir gerne wieder besuchen werden!
    Vielen lieben Dank für eure Gastfreundschaft!!

  • A wonderful place to relax and enjoy Mallorca. The view from the house is lovely, so much so that we ate there almost every night!

    The house had everything you need for a really comfortable stay, even a set of iPod speakers (I missed this in the description). Claire and Peter also left all sorts of advice and brochures of things to do - many of which we followed (website hidden) Llotja is indeed one of the best restaurants we've been to, and the beach at S'Arenal is simply wonderful.

  • We hired a car and drove to Porto Colom late at night. We were a bit delayed by Gold Car but nevertheless, we kept Peter and Claire informed. When we arrive just after midnight we received a very warm welcome by Peters Mum, Mercedes. She made us feel at home instantly, showing us their lovely home, letting us know her personal recommendations of places to go and beaches to visit. We were very pleased with the welcome and the little touches of wine in the fridge, and breakfast for us. Their home is close to some amazing beaches, amazing restaurants nearby - we loved the pizzeria, and the setting overlooking the small fishing port is wonderful. A particular lovely touch was when Mercedes recommended to put the table and chairs out the front for lunch. We did this every day, it was such nice weather and such an amazing view to have lunch on the fishing port. A very wonderful stay and I highly recommend anyone to book straight away for a relaxing weekend in Porto Colom!

  • Alex and Claire were so great hosts. THIS IS WHAT YOU DEFINITELY NEED when looking for a "relaxing disconnect". Great place, pleasant atmosphere and a wonderful "customer care" - better than in any hotel!

    Well done!

    We are sure we will for sure come back.
