Cala’n Porter has nabbed itself a top location on Menorca’s south coast. It’s perched on cliffs overlooking a horseshoe-shaped bay in a protected nature area. It’s an easy-to-get-round kind of place with the lion’s share of shops, bars and restaurants in the centre. And handily, the capital, Mahon, is just 20 minutes away.
Property as pictured, nice and clean. No TV so if you have kids may need some other form of entertainment for them at night. It does have good WiFi though. Kitchen has all you need to cook. Problem for us was the stairs, lots of them and having lots of luggage and 2 kids it was very difficult. The front bedroom was noisy at night as there is a bar downstairs and hard to sleep, back bedroom is fine. There is plenty of shops around to eat & shop and the train station is at the end of the street. Owner arranged a taxi to collect us at the airport, and take us back to airport which was very convenient.
Did not meet the owner, only a man who met us and explained everything to us. He did stay a while at the apartment explaining it all (we just wanted to change and rest up). Overall apartment was clean, just hard to go up & down stairs all the time. Location was great, close to everything you need.
The strongest point about this property is the location. Using the subway, in less than 10 minutes you can be at the city centre. It is also important to mention how clean it was and how friendly Jordi (the person who welcomed us to the property) was. You get exactly what you paid for. As there is always room for improvement, it is important to get a bigger shower curtain. Will stay there again
Toni and David greeted us at the airport and were extremely patient with us whilst we took our time to decide whether to rent a car or bikes. Toni even called the rent a bike shop and made all the arrangements. When we arrived at the house he showed us around and also advised us on places to visit in Menorca.
The house is lovely. A peaceful quiet place in the middle of the countryside. The owner and all the family, who live in a separate part of the house, are extremely kind and respected our privacy whilst always being available to help and always ready for a chat. The 12-year-old sweet Carlotta also speaks English! We used the brand new swimming pool and BBQ. We also had fresh eggs from the chickens! Thank you for a lovely stay.
Location was great - nearby we could find good restaurants and bars. Shops and markets were also close. Rambla was about 15 minutes walk and we would recommend visiting the Font Màgica de Montjuïc which is close. The show at the fountain was amazing.
With the help and advice of Jordi we could find and know all that´s necessary in Barcelona. Thank you!
Flat was big enough for 4 adults. Rooms were tidy and clean. Only thing missing was air conditioner - that would be our improvement suggestion to the owner. Prepare to walk some stairs before reaching the flat - no elevator in the building.
All in all - we had a great vacation in Barcelona :)
It is conveniently located: 3 min walking to the Metro, about 20 min to the Old Town.
It was clean, with fresh bed sheets and bath towels.
Jordi, who showed us the apartment, was helpful enough.
The garage is on the opposite side of the street and there was no lift in the building: we had to drag our luggage across the street, then up the very narrow stairs to the third floor - almost impossible task if you have large suitcases.
There are two TINY rooms, one with a twin bed and a chair, the other with twin bunk beds and a chair. Once you put your luggage there you barely have room to turn around. The mattresses were old, crumpled and uncomfortable.
The third "bedroom" was actually a sofa bed or a futon tucked in one nook of the very small and crammed living room. No privacy whatsoever! No place to sit down either because the small sofa was the only place to put your suitcases.
The apartment is sorely and inexcusably lacking closet space. The only closet was next to the kitchen and was 50 cm wide: enough for about four jackets. There are no even hooks for clothes anywhere.
The dining table was jammed behind the entrance door, scarcely enough for four people, two of them squeezed in the back.
In the bathroom there was something wrong with the boiler: taking showers came down to choosing alternating bursts of scalding or, most of the time, icy cold water. Also the sink's drain was clogged. There was no hand soap or a soap bar. There were only two hand/face towels in the bathroom (one per family). The space is so small that when using the toilet, your face is directly over the bidet.
In the kitchen there was room for one person only and even she had to move sideways. There were no instructions how to use the appliances. Many small necessities like bottle openers or clothes pins were missing. The knives were very dull. Because there were not enough power outlets, or at least a multi plug power strip, the washer and the microwave could not be used simultaneously.
This tight apartment would be probably OK for a couple or a young family with 1-2 small children, but is absolutely unacceptable for four adults, as it was advertised.
1 star for apartment position and for Jordi.
It was a perfect Weekend in Barcelona. Thank you for the stay in your nicely furnished apartment, Jaime. I have nothing to criticize at all :).
Great apartment in a great location! It had everything that we needed. In walking distance to a lot of sights. Great value and definitely would stay there again!
We loved this apartment. The location is just perfect – really in the middle of old Barcelona. 10 mins to walk to Place Calatlunya, 5 mins to Barcelona Cathedral and 5 mins to Arc de Triumphe, you can really reach everything in the center by walking. Even to the beach it is ok to walk. We rented bikes (bike rental 1 min away) for 2 days to be even more agile.
The apartment itself is in good shape, clean and very well equipped. Plenty of kitchen utensils so you could even cook if you want. WiFi is great – speed is enough to use it for Video Streaming.
Jaime was a good host. Key transfer was easy – we send a sms when we arrived at the airport and somebody was there to transfer the keys and explain the apartment. The only issue we had was a damaged hairdryer which was replaced right away.
Perfect for 2 persons who want to explore Barcelona City at ease. Would come back any time.
My family and I really enjoyed the stay at this spacious apartment.
1) Very friendly host - replied every query almost instantly.
2) Quiet, nice and clean.
3) Easy access to Halal food - a muslim restaurant just opposite the apartment.
4) Very near to metro station n bus station.
5) I recommend to others as I would surely come again...
It was our first time to book a wimdu apartment. Jaime and Eric answered to our questions friendly and quickly. The apartment was perfect for us, it is very clean. We can sleep well at night because at night it was quiet. We also appreciate the tips from Eric where are the good restaurantes with typical food and we loved the bakery in the neighbour house. Thank you Jaime and Eric!
