  • Home in Sweden again, foggy and dark November, thinking back of a truly fabulous week in this perfect house in Establiments! This was the perfect place for us, a 3-generation family of 11 persons, ages between 70 years and 11 months, to come together to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and autumn school break. Everything was lovely and beyond expectations: beautifully built and furnished house, comfortable beds, spacious rooms and facilities, fantastic view from the porch over the beautiful landscape all the way to Palma and the sea. This is one of the best places in the world and we all wish to come back again. Thank you, Ana!

  • We had the most wonderful stay at Ana's house. The house is spacious, clean and well equipped. Ana is the kindness herself, and had prepared a crib for our baby along with a basket of necessities and a baby rocker. We used it all :)

    The pool and the surroundings are great, and we spent most of our week stay by the pool or in the shadow on the porch. No need to go anywhere!

    We were six grownups and two children (all family), and there was plenty of room for us - both to be together, and to have some privacy.

    I would highly recommend Ana's place, and if I go back to Mallorca, this is where I would stay.

  • I can not recommend Ana's beautiful house highly enough. Conveniently located on the outskirts of Palma, the house and gardens are beautifully designed and lend themselves to a relaxing and peaceful stay. Ana was incredibly accommodating from the outset, responding to our numerous requests (we were traveling with five children in total!) with efficiency and good grace. Ana prepared everything we could need for our children and when she informed us that babies slept well at Can Xiscos, she meant it... Our three month old has never slept so well! A big thank you from us all.

  • Beautiful, beautiful house and area, we had a very lovely prolonged stay.
    We selfishly had the whole place to ourselves (just a couple with a guest the second week) and couldn't be happier with the whole experience - the amazing pool and gardens are just the icing on the cake... Clean, tasteful, well-equipped, very close to Palma for a shopping getaway, and a beautiful drive to Valldemossa and Deia which cannot be missed.
    I really couldn't recommend it more, especially for groups as there are enough different spaces for everyone to have a little corner of their own.
    Thanks to our lovely host Ana who was very helpful and discrete and to Susana the housekeeper who was truly excellent.

  • Thank you so much Ana! Your home was absolutely wonderful in every way and you made us feel so welcome. I may have to hire you for your design skills ;) I am having major withdrawals having just returned to London :( I recommend to anyone looking for some peace and quiet. It's a fantastic location, near to some of the most beautiful spots on the island. I look forward to my next stay!

  • The house is fantastic and views breathtaking. Even nicer than the pictures! We wanted a place with lots of outside areas to spend time in during the day, and Ana's house has more than we could use. It is possible to find shade at all times of the day for relaxing. The house itself is also very comfortable and decorated with love. The pool area is beautiful and very clean and we spent some days just hanging out there. The house is located conveniently only about 10 min outside of Palma and we drove around to several diffirent beaches and places of interest during our stay - always enjoying coming back to the house and the calm and quiet oasis it provided. A beautiful vacation spot.

  • This was our first Mallorca experience, at we have hardly seen anything of the island because Ana's house is so wonderful to stay at!
    Her house, garden, pool and the view is a dream. Ana is a very nice and generous host.
    All lovely seats outside including the lounge beds next to the pool. The house has a great atmosphere. It's also very clean.
    Palma is very close and easy directions. Great big supermarket close by.
    Thank you Ana!
    We definately like to come back. Olaf, Fleur and Wolf

    Fleur, thank you very much for your kind words .... I'm so glad you enjoy your stay in my house, I hope you come back another time to see your beautiful baby Wolf running around the garden and swimming in the pool.
    It was really nice to meet you!
    See you soon

  • ANA, I can't say enough how much we enjoyed your BEAUTIFUL house. The house is EXTREMELY clean, neat, cozy, beautiful, spacious with the best of furniture and equipment to have an enjoyable vacation. Ana is very very friendly, helpful and lovely host. The pool was clean, the pool side furniture are plenty and very comfortable. Back yard is filled with lots of cozy sofas and chairs for any part of the day, whether you are having breakfast on the table next to the kitchen backdoor or relaxing with friends overlooking the pool and the hills. The house has the most comfortable beds, and clean sheets. There is nothing in the house that you ever feel like might not be clean and you need to wash it. It is hard to summarize all the fantastic things about this house, and the wonderful host. The back yard is filled with most breath taking plants and greens which was a great subject if you are a photographer. She welcomed us with a couple bottles of rose wine and some basic kitchen snack and breakfast which was very nice of her. You are only about 15 min drive from city, but the peace and the serenity that you find in this house, cannot be found anywhere else in Mallorca. Ana, it’s been honor and pleasure for letting us into your lovely house. We are very thankful for having you as our host and I recommend Ana’s house to every traveler who is planning to travel to Mallorca .

  • We were a group of two couples, a friend and a 9 month baby and this stunning villa ticked all our boxes.
    The villa it's self is beautifully decorated yet still completely functional and comfortable.
    Our only criticism was there wasn't any air conditioning but there were fans in all the rooms and we had particularly hot weather (perfect every day).
    The pool and surrounding property is also fabulous. The pool is perfect for long days lounging in the sun and there are numerous lovely sunny nooks with tables for dining alfresco.
    Unfortunately we had one unpleasant experience staying at the villa - we were burgled and some of our personal belongings stolen. This isn't a reflection on Ana or the villa, she supplies safe boxes all all rooms which she encouraged us to use. I only mention it so people are more security conscious then us and always lock all windows AND shutters when you go out.
    Despite this we would definitely go back again. The villa is in a great location to explore the magnificent island.
