About This Listing
A cozy, spacious, loft style apartment in the center center of Palma. Part of a contemporary reformed townhouse with it's own front door. We welcome you personally and fill you in on all you want to know. King-size bed, WIFI, just great!!
This apartment is part of our town house but it is fully independent with it's own front door. One big space of 35 meters on the ground floor with a Kingsize bed, a kitchenette (refrigerator , microwave, Nespresso, tea kettle) a table for eating and as well two comfortable chairs. Upstairs is the shower and toilet and space for extra beds. There is a HIFI set, a small library with tourist guide books and reading books and of course WIFI.
The location is in the center of the old city in a great restaurant area called La Lonja. The port, main shopping avenues and cathedral are all a five minute walk. Because of the centric location, parking a rental car has some tricks. Although much better than other European cities, one has to reserve a budget of 10-15€ a day or be willing to walk 15 minutes for free parking.
We live (family with two young children) in the same building, from the first floor up. We are very easygoing and hospitality is in our nature. You might run into us on your way in or out. We are delighted to tell you all the ins and outs of the city, or excursions that you really can't miss. We keep discovering new things, Mallorca keeps amazing, and we love to share it with you.
Please take the trouble of having a profile with a picture and a few personal lines so we get an idea who you are when you inquire.
The apartment has it's own facilities. You come in through a big entrance where you can leave you rented bicycles or scooter.
Interaction with Guests
We live above the apartment, but in general you won't notice much of us. We always welcome you personally, show you how everything works and give you tips of where to go, how to get around etc.. For any question you have during your stay, if you need to borrow something, print your boarding pass, call a taxi etc... you just walk up the stairs and knock on our door.
everything thing is wlaking distance away. Shopping, restaurants and bars, the cathedral, the beach. The street has a lot of character and the whole atmosphere is very friendly.
Being right in the middle of town, most things can be done on foot, Plaza mayor, cathedral, good shopping etc.. Local buses work well , but with more than one person it's almost always worth taking a taxi. a taxi within the city is between 5 and 10 euros.
Nearby parking is metered. 1.80euros an hour from 9:00 to 14:30 and from 16:30 to 20:00. Maximum time is two hours. On Saturdays only until 14:30. Sunday and holiday it's free. Free parking is a 10-15 minute walk a way. On request you can borrow a kick scooter which reduces the time to 5-8 minutes.
From the airport a taxi is 18euros. It takes about ten minutes. There is also a bus that goes to the city that works well. Number 1, you get off on the second stop on the Passeig Mallorca and walk for 5 more minutes. The bus ride takes about 25 minutes. With heavy luggage, better to take a cab.
Car rental is often much cheaper at the airport, especially off-season. Nearby car rental charge 40-50€ per day.
Other Things to Note
About the booking process. The calendar is kept really up-to-date so when the dates are available, that will be the case. Send me a message and I will try to respond as quick as possible to your message.
Please take the trouble of having a profile with a picture and a few personal lines. The only reason otherwise not to accept your reservation, (if you seem nice and normal) would be if you try to reserve a 3 night stay in the middle of an open week in high season.
Check in (phone number hidden).
Check out 11:00
An early check-in or late check-out request will always be honored if it doesn't interfere with other guests arriving or leaving on the same day. So just ask. In any case you will be able to drop off bags early or pick them up later if early check/ late check-out is not possible.
I have tried to put in tons of information into the listing so please check if you find the answer to your questions in the information. If you still have a question please feel free to send me a short message.
In principle: check in after 1400. Check out 11:00; but in most cases very flexible, it just depends on the people leaving or arriving before or after you. There´s no real kitchen but breakfast and simple meals are easily prepared.
There ´s a cleaning fee that is really being used to clean the apartment thoroughly after each guest. We just ask you to wash your own dishes, if you use the kitchen for cooking. Please leave the apartment in a fairly neat way. You can leave the bed linnen on the bed and leave the garbage in the bins.
We stayed in Roelands duplex for three nights, it was clean,comfortable and in a great location. We were provided with all the information and tips that we needed. It was particularly useful to be able to leave our bags there after checkout as we has a late flight. Roeland also assisted by organising a cab for our trip to the airport. I would be very happy to stay there again given the opportunity.
Made very welcome by Roeland. Advice and ideas given for places of interest nearby. Apartment is very spacious and in an excellent location, very central, but still quiet at night. Lots and lots of lovely cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance. No need for a car. Loved Palma and plan to return later in year.
Roeland was very helpful and flexible during our stay, they apartment is lovely and clean but a little humid - probably because we visited early April. The beds are comfortable and the apartment has everything you need. The Location is fantastic, in the middle of the centre and close to the harbour. I would absolutely recommend staying here during summer!
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mallorca, at Roeland's place. The apartment was nestled in a quiet neighbourhood with interesting boutique/artsy shops in the vicinity. There was a traditional Spanish restaurant (C'an Toni) just down the road, where we had a scrumptious dinner! A pleasant stay overall!
Appartement très bien situé proche des principaux lieux d'intérêt (restaurants, bars, commerces, plage, cathédrale). Intérieur très spacieux et bien décoré. Roeland a été très disponible tout le long du séjour.
Roeland was generous and flexible with us. We didn't see him much, but he was always very helpful and friendly.
This is a great place in a very central location. The apartment is clean and well-furnished. The bed is vast and very comfortable, being nicely on the hard side.
We really enjoyed this space. The whole building is wonderful. The entrance is from a cobbled road with restricted motor access (so it's quiet) into an internal courtyard. Look up and you see the sky framed by a very modern and sympathetic redesign of the house. Going down some steps leads you to the apartment. So the apartment is within the same building as the family home, but has it's own door. We did notice that the abundance of modern, hard surfaces meant that the (mostly joyful!) noise of Roeland's two young children travelled very easily. The fact that you're sharing a family home with children is made clear in the listing on this site. It didn't spoil our stay, and after 9pm it was very tranquil.
Being a basement-type location, the temperature was nicely constant for November, but we also had a heater to give a quick last when needed.
We had a great time there, and would definitely recommend Roeland's apartment.
