We stayed in Camilla’s apartment for nine days in August 2013. The apartment is cozy, spacious and gives a feeling of home. We were provided with plenty of towels and linen. The apartment is neat, tidy and clean. It is a huge advantage that we could park behind a closed gate.
However, there were too many things that were out of order or not functioning during our stay. One of the toilets was not possible to flush. Later we realized that it was something the owner was aware of and that it was a common problem in her apartment.
We were not able to close the back door because of a missing handle. For this reason, the air con did not function properly the first days.
We experienced a heavy rain storm which resulted in power loss in the apartment because two of Camilla’s wall sockets outdoors were not properly installed and therefore resulting in power loss when in contact with water. When the electrician arrived, he told us that the installations were very dangerous .
Furthermore, for us, a main reason to choose Camilla’s place was that it was situated in a “quite, semi-rural area”. This description does not fit very well with reality as it was a main road passing just outside the apartment and terrace . Because of a steep hill the buses and vans driving to and from the resorts nearby made quite a heavy noise and a feeling of polluted air from early morning.
Camilla was in France during our entire stay. She had a friend meeting us who didn’t have much time. When Camilla is not present herself, it is necessary to provide guests with information about the apartment and the local area. For instance we didn’t have wifi before we could get hold of Camilla in France as we didn’t know the password. When incidents like lack of power and toilet occur, it is important to have a person to contact immediately. It was not easy to reach Camilla in France, and we spent a lot of money calling from Spain to France with a Norwegian cellphone.
From our point of view, the apartment was quite different from what we expected after we had read the description and reviews on Airbnb website. We found the apartment very expensive in relation to the standard, and our experience staying there.
We stayed 2 weeks in Camila's apartment, the apartment is really well equipped (wifi,bbq...), nice and well designed, the terrace is very pleasant, in short according to our expectations.
We were close of the cala Vinyes which a good thing, you can swim quietly after a long day visiting the island.
The immediate neighbor is nice as well, with several "calas" for the day, just be careful with the cala in Portal Vells which has a nudist area.
Overall our vacation was wonderful and we will likely return here to continue visiting Palma.
Vi tilbragte 12 dage i denne fantastiske lejlighed - vi kan kun være enige med de andre når det kommer til Camillas gæstfrihed.
Vi vil gerne tilføje nogle oplysninger som ikke fremgår af de andre anmeldelser:
Området består af ca. 20 lejligheder - derfor er der altid masser af plads ved poolen - ofte har man den for sig selv. Området er indhegnet med en port således af kun folk med et ærinde har adgang - det føltes virkelig rart. Udover et par små hyggelige strande - den ene i gå afstand, så kommer man hurtigt til fx. Palmanova stranden som varmt kan anbefales. Endvidere bør man aflægge Port Andriano et besøg - 10 min. kørsel fra lejligheden.
Selve lejligheden er fortrinlig med alle de ting man kan ønske sig - WIFI fungerer superhurtigt, glem tørretumbler - tøjet tørres meget hurtigere på tagterrassen osv osv.
Alt i alt et fantastisk ophold - hvis vi skulle vælge at komme tilbage til Mallorca vil vi helt klart vælge Camillas lejlighed.
Tusind tak for denne gang.
Very good apartment! Clean,stylish,even better then on photos. There are 2 swimming pools,the sea is in 2 min from the apartment. The only minus is that it's a bit noisy in mornings,but we get used to it) Camilla is a very attentive host,she recommended us local shops,sights,beaches. Thank her so much! We enjoyed our rest,it was brilliant!
5 STARS *****
Spacious, clear and brightened up, the apartment is still better that on photos.The swimming pool is very big also. It's necessary a few minutes for feet to go to the beach and to the small shops. A very big terrace allows to take advantage of the sun from morning till night.
Camilla and her daughter waited for us to show us places and recommend us visits and beaches.
These holidays were magnificent, brilliant, restful... Unforgettable.
And far too short!!
It is safe, we shall return as soon as possible
