About this listing
Enjoy the best of the island in our cosy newly renovated apartment surrounded by a beautiful garden with a great pool to relax and refresh yourself.
Enjoy the best of the island in "MAHALO", our 60 sqm fully self-contained newly renovated apartment on the lower part of our house surrounded by a beautiful garden with a great pool to relax and refresh yourself.
Genova, a small Spanish village, known for its great variety of charming restaurants. It is ideally located, just 10 minutes from Palma, 20 min. from the airport with beautiful beaches and hikes nearby.
The apartment is fully renovated combining the traditional beauty with natural material and quality equipment..
It has 5 rooms: the living area with sofa bed to sleep and chill, a dining room with fireplace (for the cooler season) for romantic evenings, a kitchen with an eating bar, a cosy bedroom with a double bed, and a bathroom with shower (and heating).
Ipod music dock and Wireless DSL available.
Doors and windows open to the garden with sitting areas in sun or shade.
The kitchen is fully equipped including oven, stove, dishwasher, but Genova also features a great bakery with fresh fruit and vegetables as well as authentic local restaurants, all within walking distance. Parking available directly next to the house.
Ideal for one couple, or a family with 1-2 children. There is a range of beaches within a 5-15 minute drive, including Paguera which is great for kids and surfing, C'an Pastilla which gets good winds for kitesurfing, Playa Comtessa for calm swimming in turqouise waters, ...
Palma offers cultural highlights and the feel of a real Spanish city with narrow streets filled with shops and cafes, museums, a big cathedral and a maritime board walk next to one of the largest marinas in Europe.
The boardwalk along the Palma harbour is fantastic for cycling / rollerblading as it extends 15 km to the East. There is plenty of exciting stuff to do here. If you want to play in the water, we have minimalibu and foam surfboards and boogie boards for you free of charge. Go up to one of the mountain villages and enjoy some great hiking or climbing in the mountains. Rent a bike to explore the island. Visit some of the quaint villages with authentic restaurants to tantalize your taste buds. After sunset your soul will come to rest with a glass of local red under our lemon tree or on the roof terrace, which offers an ocean view.
enjoy our island... we want to make your stay a pleasant and memorable one :)
Wir fühlten uns gemeinsam mit unseren Kindern wohl bei Gesine & Gerry. Der Pool und die Lounge sind genial und auch die Nähe zu Palma und zu den Stränden ist perfekt. Gesine hat extra für uns noch ein Babystuhl besorgt. Vielen Dank auch für alle Tipps.
A jewel of a place for decompressing and relaxing on the island of Mallorca!
Gesine, Gerry and their family were a delight to meet. They were most helpful with insights about Island life, places to go, sights and eats.
Gerry & Gesine couldn't have been more warm, friendlier, and accommodating during the course of our 3 night stay. My husband and I spent a long weekend in Genova celebrating our wedding anniversary and upon arrival Gesine greeted us with a big smile and a lovely bottle of spanish rose that we all enjoyed in the lush garden surrounded by lemon & almond trees that we enjoyed picking from in the mornings to come. They provided us with several recommendations of their favourite things to do and places to see on the island and we took advantage of their local knowledge and was not dissapointed! Their bungalow offered a relaxing reprieve from the hustle & bustle of city living, with an amazing restaurant just at the end of the road, but also the convenience of being in Palma and the beach harbor within a ten minute car ride. Hoping to make this trip an annual tradition as we fell in love with the island and we will surely be staying again at Gerry & Gesine's hidden paradise house.
Ganz ehrlich: Mehr braucht kein Mensch !
Und dazu noch das ganz Besondere: Die Haag´s.
Liebe Sienna, liebe Gesine, lieber Robinson und lieber Gerry - schön, dass es Euch gibt und schön, dass es Euch so gibt, wie Ihr seid.
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit. Danke !

We are couple just married. Had a part of our honeymoon.
1. Awesome family — Gesine & Gerry were so friendly and so cheerful. They live in this house with their two kids. All they always have fun.
2. Awesome pool area and garden.
3. Technical equipment of our part of house (we had almost everything that possible).
4. It's a "soul" place, we liked it too much.
5. Beautiful handcrafted furniture.
1. We supposed that it will be calm and lonely part of our honeymoon. But it isn't quite house. As we said there live Gesine, Gerry with two kids and they love to have fun. As we needed to separate parts of house and swimming pool area it couldn't be calm and lonely staying there.
2. We didn't like Saint Augustin area (it is nearest beach area) and nearest beach. It isn't best on Mallorca island.
3. We didn't like Genova area, because it isn't so beautiful as another parts of island.
4. Swimming pool area wasn't clean (leaves from trees & kid's toys).
5. There were cockroaches in house.
Summary we liked our staying in this place and don't regret about choosing this place. But probably in our next honeymoon we would choose another place.
We spent 10 nights at Gesine and Gerry's, and it was certainly relaxing! There were just two of us, so the space within the apartment and in the garden was perfect. Although Gesine and Gerry were away during our stay, we had some very useful books and guides, as well as their own notes to give us the low-down of the local and surrounding areas e.g. restaurants, beaches, useful phone numbers etc, so that was very useful. Plus Gesine let me know in advanced that, if we did have any problems, we could contact her sister, who was nearby, which was reassuring.
We didn't have a car, but luckily there is a bus stop just down the road which takes you straight into Palma.
Gerry arrived back with the kids on our penultimate day there, and we were invited up for a few drinks on our last night, which was sweet - so thank you for that!
Overall, we had a wonderful stay in the beautifully renovated apartment and enjoyed a bit of peace and quiet away from the rat race - so many thanks again Gesine and Gerry :)
