Cute 2 double bedroom cottage on one of the nicest Fincas in Ibiza's north, in the middle of nature! Sea view without light pollution, totally quiet but walking distance from Sant Joan de Labritja. Heating, high speed Internet, TV, DVD. kitchenette.
Welcome to a different Ibiza…
...and to Ca'n Devi near Sant Joan de (website hidden)'n Devi is a lovely independent 1, 5 bedroom/kitchenette/bathroom/terraces - cottage for 2 to 3 people on a sea view "barefoot-luxury" Finca with mature gardens and a Bali-Chillout at the pool. We have a non-smoking policy for inside the house but there are plenty of ashtrays outside.
The two owners - us - live in the main house, and once in a while other guests of our bigger cottage Ca'n Babulito (3-4 people) appear in the gardens or gather around the (website hidden)'n Devi is totally independent, is a heated/AC'd cottage with 1 living/bedroom (1 double bed), a second 1 person bedroom (or for 2 lovebirds or the child) ) shower-bath, kitchenette, Sat-TV/DVD, wireless internet, A/C, 2 lovely covered terraces, one with sea view, and of course use of the pool that is shared with the owners and the tenants of our second cottage Ca'n Babulito.
Here you can really let your hair down and soak up the atmosphere of an Ibiza of times lost. Here you can escape the hustle and bustle of the outside world and reconnect with your innermost.The famed hippie beaches are only a stone’s throw away and the bright red sun extinguishes itself by gently dipping into the sea on the horizon’s edge. Spend unforgettable days in paradise, with exceptional views to the sea and with front row seats to its phenomenal sunset spectacle. (Phew, sounds utterly romantic!)
Enjoy relaxing by the (salt water) pool, lovely walks along astounding natural scenery, horseback riding, Yoga, massages... see below. Meditative times of introspection or creative productivity: everything is possible.
Thanks to modern amenities, including central heating throughout, all creature comforts are catered for and you can discover a different Ibiza at any time of year.
Only 1,2 km walking distance from the cool vibrant village of Sant Joan de Labritja - hideaway of loads of celebs (there's even a picture of Sir Mick and a village dweller in our local supermarket). If you don't like to see Kate Moss or Jade Jagger, just look away. There are also other "big shots" you can simply ignore.
From the village buses can take you into Ibiza town but only twice a day. It's advisable to hire a car, we can help with that. Shopping fancy clothes in the old town of Ibiza - what a treat!
A 20 minute drive so Santa Eulalia and you find several good restaurants t (25 min to Ibiza town, even more great digs), but we prefer our local "Paloma", an Italian-Israeli wonderful orange grove restaurant/café, lively, vibrant, and sooo yummy! - Every Saturday Sant Joan hosts a market with live music, you can buy organic food, tidbits, cappuccinos, local produce and garage sale stuff... Great fun!
You'll have a quiet time on the Finca. It's sometimes so quiet that you can hear the grass grow... and the moon rise... Our neighbours are not to be heard and also not to be seen, unless we invite them or they invite us (a lovely gay couple from London).
Paul, the owner, loves to have a glass of wine or two with our guests (well,his wife Elfie-Anasha too!) Everybody feels really home here - that's why we after three years being "open to the public" - we have regular guests who became friends. Most of our guests come from the UK, the Netherlands and Berlin (which we do not really consider Germany). Not so many via airbnb - but as we are air bnb'er ourselves we hope to welcome more friends from this platform!
Kids are welcome too, although Ca'n Devi can be tricky for a small child and for the elderly as the bathroom is down a spirale staircase. Toddlers have to be watched also on the grounds because of pool, fishpond and many natural terraces.
We have a caretaker - Nico - living on the grounds, good for security, although it's really safe in our area. There are also two very mellow dogs - Babu and Devi who run around, lick and waggle but if our guests don't like the dogs we can keep them in a fenced off area anytime, they don't (website hidden)'n Devi and Ca'n Babulito are available all year round except July/August/til mid September.
Airbnb want's us to explain what makes our place unique: well, e v e r y t h i n g !!!! Did we forget to mention Paul is a massage therapist and if you prefer a female touch there are three more skilled bodyworks in the vicinity. Aquabalancing, craniosacral, Rebalancing, deep tissue massage - we can organize all of that for you! And horseback riding? Around the corner! Walks with guides or without? No problem! Women's full moon gatherings, Yoga... sooo much you could do but don't have to! We love to see you! Just relax!!!!!
Pool, gardens, laundry house, chill out, plenty of nature... High speed Internet, DVD player, TV... terraces.
Interaction with Guests
For sure we have a nice tea time together and sometimes, if all of us are up to, we meet for a dinner and a movie...
It's totally quiet and lovely, you can see the sea from almost everywhere, no light pollution, no noise pollution, it's walking distance to our cute village Sant Joan de Labritja, fun Sunday flea market, bank, post office, shops...
No - you definitely need to hire a car or a motorbike! We can suggest something for you!
Other Things to Note
We - a forever-young couple, writers, live on the ground... we have two dogs, Babu and Devi, 7 years old, absolutely peace loving dogs, hardly ever bark and are very very sweet. Pointer-Labrador mixes.
We prefer mellow people who love country life and are not soo much into parties, drugs and alcohol! Meditators and Yoga people very welcome. We have some great Yoga teachers around as well as massage therapist.
No pets, no smoking inside the buildings.
Wir hatten fünf wunderbare Tage im Cottage! Wären gern länger geblieben.
Nette und unkomplizierte Gastgeber, tolle Lage in den Hügeln hinter Sant Joan (an der alten Landstraße nach Portinatx). Sehr ruhig.
Liebevoll eingerichtetes, sauberes Häuschen und ein schöner Pool mit zahlreichen Sitz-/Liegemöglichkeiten.
Können wir sehr empfehlen und werden wahrscheinlich wieder hinfahren.
Am Ende des Dorfes St.Joan de Labritja geht eine Straße nach links,auf der hangelt man sich ein wenig entlang, bis man irgendwann nach schräg rechts in einen von Zypressen umsäumten Weg einbiegt. Nachdem man das Tor zu Elfies und Pauls Grundstück auf dem steinigen Weg hinter sich gelassen hat, eröffnet sich der Blick ins Tal, von wo aus man das Meer sehen kann. Von hier aus ist auch schon das Haus zu erkennen, voller Freude fährt man weiter, bis plötzlich, "Huch", man vor einem Schild stehen bleibt, auf dem eine auf dem Besen fliegende Hexe abgebildet ist, es ist ein Vorfahrtsschild. Wir müssen lachen und fahren weiter. Kurz danach geht es links hinein. Von den netten Gastgebern begrüßt, geht es auch schon zur Unterkunft, ein separates Häuschen, was früher wohl als Stall dieser Finka und dieses Anwesens diente, ausgebaut zu einem hübschen Domizil für Urlauber, mit zauberhafter Einrichtung. Angekommen. Schön.
We spent a great time in Elfie and Pablo's house.
Everything was wonderful and it is such a relaxing location.
Elfie and Pablo are kind, welcoming and discreet hosts.
They even invited us to the birthday party of Pablo and we really appreciated it. The Thai food and the Spanish wine were delicious. The company was interesting and fascinating.
We highly recommend their house to other guest.
We really look forward to visiting them again soon with our friends.
Can Devi is as good as it looks. A cozy little house that will make you feel far away from the daily buzz; but only less than half an hour away from busy and colourfull Ibiza fuss (if you really get the courage to leave the place at all ;O)
Surrounded by outstanding nature and overlooking the Med. A place to rest, meditate, sunbath or read that book you've been meaning to read for so long ...
On top, Elffie and Paul are excellent hosts, interesting people with good conversation that made their best to help us have the best stay possible.
Your best bet in the Isla Bonita if you want to break through with the islands topics and go back in time.
