The Space

My apartment is perfectly situated to enjoy your stay in Palma.
I have a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom spacious apartment I would like you to enjoy here in the Centre.
The apartment is situated on the Paseo Mallorca just around the corner from the famous Jaime 3rd Street where you will find designer shops like Cartier and Loewe, and of course El Corte Ingles. Other supermarkets and delis serving organic fruits and meats are just around the corner too.
It is ideally situated for the old town and its quirky streets and shops and also Santa Catalina an area of Palma with lots of bars and cafes and restaurants. In our Street alone you will find typical Mallorquin restaurants and offer reasonably priced menus of the day.
Alternatively we are also less than 5 minutes walk away from the Principle Theatre, many museums, and the Auditorium of Palma on the Paseo is a 5 minute cab ride away too with great shows.
It is ten minutes walk away from the Paseo Maritimo, one of the richest marinas in the whole of Europe there you can walk for miles and admire the yachts or take a sun downer cocktail in one of the many bars or restaurants. Palma is open until around 6am for the disco goers and these can also be found on the Paseo Maritimo.
All in all, as the title suggests we are perfectly situated in Palma, the bus from the airport stops literally 20 metres away from the apartment, also from here you can take transport to many beaches like Cala Major and Illetas, or from the Cathedral you can even go as far as Andratx.
The apartment has fantastic views of the old town and famous Cathedral to the rear, and the lovely Paseo Mallorca to the front and you can even see the Castle of Belver and the start of the mountain range that runs through the middle of of the Island.
The building itself has just 14 large apartments, 2 per floor and 2 lifts available.
The room available is a comfortable, sunny double room with double bed and two double fitted wardrobes and draw space, it has great views as mentioned and also a bathroom for your personal use. Towels and bathrobes are provided.
We are now able to offer a second bedroom with ensuite facilities as from November 2013. (look out for ideally situated in Palma) and we can accomodate up to 4 adults in the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on offer.
There is a large kitchen with all the modern utilities and you are free to use these if you wish.
As from November 2013 we are offering a second room, also a double with ensuite facilities.
A light breakfast is provided of teas, coffee, juice, toast and jams, and cereals can be taken whenever you wish, we invite you to help yourself and can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar or dining table or on the balcony.
I will provide you with beach towels and a traditional Mallorquin beach bag for your stay, if you wish to use our cool box for the beach please just ask.
I love Palma and Mallorca, and im sure you will too, please ask as many questions you have at any time and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Best Wishes and kind regards, Ian x

  • Everything went quite well. The flat is very central, close to the restaurant street and the Passeig Maritimo. The apartment is very spacy, though you won't spend as much time there since it is very hawt. And Ian will provide you with everything you need, had very enjoyable breakfasts at the balcony, always a plus.

  • Spent 4 days and 3 nights in Palma. Location is indeed great unless you want to party every night in balenareo 6 ;) In the center city, direct bus connection to airport and the most beatifull beaches in Cala Major and Illeates. The appartment is nice, balcony with great view on palm, allthought loud from traffic. Nice kitchen with everything you need. But the best of all is the host himself. Ian is an open minden, friendly and very helpfull host. I fealt very comfortable, thanks Ian :)

  • We have only good to say about Ian and his place. It has a good location and is easy to find both by car and bus. It takes just a minute by foot and you will be right on the shopping street.
    If we will return to Palma we shall try to get this apartment again.

  • I found Ian to be very welcoming, friendly and so easy to be with. His appartment is really very well appointed, comfortable and relaxing. He gives freely of his local knowledge regarding cafes, restaurants, places of interest and how to get around the city. I covered all my interests simply by walking as the appartment really is 'perfectly situated in central Palma'. On the two occassions I went outwith the city, the 'travel hub' of Placa d'Espagna is an easy 15 minuted stroll away. An overall thouroughly (?spilling) enjoyable week. Thanks Ian.

  • Ich kann einen Aufenthalt bei Ian wärmstens empfehlen!
    Ian ist ein aufmerksamer und charmanter Gastgeber. Das schön eingerichtete Appartement ist ideal gelegen: Sehenswürdigkeiten & Geschäfte/viele Restaurants können bequem zu Fuss erreicht werden. Mein Zimmer bot einen umwerfenden Blick auf die Kathedrale, die Altstadt und das Meer. Zudem habe ich die Ruhe und die gute Matratze sehr genossen.
    Merci Ian!

    Ps: Raucher dürfen übrigens auf der Terrasse ihrem Laster frönen …
