The Space

Beautiful apartment for two people, can sleep four, very close from the center of Palma.
Situated next to the Bellver Castle it is a very quiet place with sea and forest views.

The apartment is the top floor of a very old Mallorquin house, approximately 100 years old. It has been reformed during the years but it still has that special charm.
The whole house has three apartments, each one individual from the other and I live in the middle one.
There is a private parking space across the road.

There are fantastic views to the sea, you can even sea the Island of Cabrera far away some clear days!
It is directly situated at the end of the woods were you can have endless walks who guide you to the Bellver Castle were you have views of the whole bay of Palma and children´s playground
So when lying in the bed, you have no roads, no noise, only the trees and its birds.
In the terrace you can sunbathe and have beautiful dinners at night. (two sunbathing chairs are provided)

There is a Bus stop just 2 minutes away and 15 minutes walk to Porto Pi shopping Center were you can find restaurants, all sorts of shops, casino and supermarket.
You are only 15 minutes away from Palma center and Cathedral from the bus stop and 15 min to the nearest beach
.
The apartment is equipped with everything, it has no microwave and no satellite T.V. There is a DVD player with different films for adults and children. air conditioning and heating, a fire place too.
Please note this is a one bedroom apartment, there is a double bed in the bedroom and two single beds in the living room which look like sofas, this is were the other two people can sleep.
I have baby beds and baby chairs.

I will help you in anything you need making your stay as comfortable as I can, any extras you need just ask me, I can provide you with yoga classes, massages, acupuncture
treatments, everything at home!!!

It is a lovely apartment, just the perfect size. For those who love a quiet place with charm.

  • APARTMENT
    The apartment was quite lovely and just as anticipated from the photos, but the overall experience was a bit disappointing. The reviews all tout the great experience that the guests had with Fiona as a host and unfortunately, she was out of town during our visit. However, the apartment has great charm and the terrace and views were lovely. Location was fine, 20 minute walk to the old historic town, but close to some restaurants/bars and waterfront.

    EXPERIENCE
    In regards to the overall experience, just have to share what we went through as it was unlike anything I have encountered. At the last minute, a friend who happened to be in town joined us for the evening upon arrival (without any luggage). Because I hadn't anticipated this, i didn't even look up the policy on this because I knew the apartment slept 4 people in case our friend decided to stay. Fiona's friend brought up some extra sheets, but did not say anything or inquire about the extra guest. I later received a text that we needed to discuss the third person, in the morning I received another text that she would be at the apartment at 5:00 and would like to discuss. I informed her that we did not know our schedule and that there was no need to discuss, it was okay by me to change the reservation to 3 people. The day goes by and we returned to the apartment at 9pm and found that we were locked out. I was not checking texts because of my plan, but I looked and found a text from Fiona's friend that stated she was at the apartment at 5pm waiting for us. I don't understand why exactly she came or why she felt compelled to lock us out as if we were common criminals who had not just paid $600 for a long weekend. She was apparently waiting in the car when we arrived and came in with a man who was acting like a bodyguard (for two 120lb girls). She was horribly rude, unlocked the door, then told us that she would be back on our departure day at noon and that we better be gone. Also, she informed us that we better not play any music or have any parties because there were other guests (who were younger than us actually and very nice). She also left some hand soap, which i had requested, and said 1 euro! I was in total shock and questioned this and then she said, "never mind, consider it my gift to you" and stormed out. I had the most uncomfortable feeling from the experience and could not believe we had been treated in such a manner! Also, there was no instruction regarding departure, etc. My advice, just check that Fiona will be in town when you are traveling.

  • Es war ein sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt. Fiona war sehr, sehr nett. Die Lage der Wohnung war gut. Von der Terrasse schaut man auf das Meer in Richtung Hafen und hinter dem Haus lag der Park der Castell de Bellver. In etwa 25 Minuten waren wir zu Fuß an der Kathedrale.
    Die Wohnung ist nett eingerichtet und Frühstücken auf der Terrasse mit Blick zum Meer war ein Genuss. Bei einem weiteren Aufenthalt in Palma, würden wir das gleiche Appartement wählen.

  • We had a really nice time at Fionas beautiful apartment. It was very clean, lovely decorated and the balcony was absolutely stunning. Also it is a very quiet place. We booked a car right from the airport for the whole stay in Palma and just drove around Mallorca. It has such beautiful places and beaches.
    Fiona was very kind, helpful and gave us a list with her favorite places to visit.
    Thank you Fiona :) so nice meeting you!

    It was great!

  • Fiona's place was wonderful: cozy, quiet, clean and beautiful! We travelled with a baby, and she had everything we needed. And the view from the terrace is amazing! If we go back, we will stay here again.

  • Fiona was very kind and helpful, we felt absolutely welcome! It's a beautiful apartment - we highly recommend it! Palma is within walking-distance, you have a wonderful view from the balcony, and the park next to the apartment is worth visiting. You will enjoy your stay! Thank you very much, Fiona!

  • Fiona is a lovely person and so is the apartment with this amazing romantic terrace! Just like in the pictures. Everything is very clean and she is very helpful with anything you need and need to know.
    the view from the sleeping room is straight to trees and to the wood...very nice location for palma.
    There are two lovely cats, which we cuddled all the time. You can also leave them outside the apartment, that´s not a problem.
    Thanks so much for the short stay!

  • Fiona's apartment is fantastic. We stayed over a long weekend and had an amazing holiday. The apartment is just as described, and the views are just as good as they look in the pictures. Fiona is a great host and gave us all the info we needed to make the most of our stay. I would highly recommend Fiona as a host for anyone thinking of a trip to Palma in the near future!
