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.

The space

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.

Gesine and Gerry are amazing hosts! They were absolutely fantastic (and fun!) They had wonderful insights to the island, and it was nice to have hosts with similar water-inclined interests. The place was an amazing retreat, and it was tempting to stay there all day...well, we did as least one of our days there. It was the perfect place to land our first week in Mallorca. We'd recommend highly to any traveler...who wants a hybrid resort-home and new friends on the island. - Andy & Jasmine

We really enjoyed this wonderful place, very peaceful (unless my kids were in the pool!). The property was well maintained and very tastefully decorated. Lots of lovely restaurants within walking distance and Palma/beaches all only 5 minutes drive away. The hosts were away but their friends looked after us very well & couldn't be more helpful. Amenities were great, our only issue was there was no washing washing machine which can be tricky with kids, but the hosts kindly let us use theirs. Also at night when the weather was very hot there was no way to cool down as there were no fans. Most nights it was OK, but some nights were a little hard to sleep. However even with these minor issues I would absolutely recommend the property & would most certainly go back.

We stayed 3 persons for some days in August in this totally fantastic peaceful place! Gesine and Gerry has a lovely house, so nicely decorated and with the garden an pool you just fall in love with! It is calm away from all traffic. You preferably need a car, but distance to Palma and beaches are still not far at all. Recommend a visit at restaurant Sa Ximbomba in Genova

Our hosts were out of town, but they had set up two friends as local contacts that welcomed us. Since this is ground floor unit (and they live upstairs) the privacy of them being gone and having the outdoor space to ourselves was great for our family (2 adults and 2 kids). The outdoor space is the gem of this rental- the pool, the lounging area, ping pong table and picnic area are what make this place worth renting. Because it's a ground floor (and it's Spain and there is no air conditioning), the breeze isn't quite as cooling as it would be if it was a higher unit, so keep that in mind if traveling in warm summer weather as we did in June. Because it's the ground floor, when you leave the shutters open for breeze, the bugs also crawl right in, so a bit more feeling like you're camping than we would have liked. The basement unit does not have it's own laundry machine as noted, but does have a dishwasher and espresso that are not noted in the listing. Parking is easy. Bakery and restaurants in walking distance are adorable. Wifi only works from the kitchen, so it is not strong enough to work while on vacation, but fine for occasional checking.

This is the perfect place to stay when visiting Majorca. The accommodation is gorgeous and is well equipped. I loved the pool and the pool area. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful.
