Beautiful house in large garden with pool in the East of Mallorca, situated only 5 minutes from the beach and 2 golf clubs. It has 2 twin-rooms and 2 double sofa-beds.
Villa Minyo is a lovely little villa situated in the beautiful Mallorcan countryside on the east coast of the island.
You can reach several beaches in five minutes, and there are 2 golf courses only 1.5 km away. The views are beautiful and you can see the Costa dels Pins, Cala Millor and Cala Bona coast.
There are fruit trees and a little truck garden. You can also enjoy a big garden with a 10 m x 4 m swimming pool.
Nearest golf courses:
Son Servera Golf
On the ground floor the villa has a kitchen and dining area with a seperate lounge, both leading out to covered terraces wih access to the pool. The kitchen is fitted with 4 ring electric hob, oven, toaster, kettle and microwave. A washing machine is housed in a small utility area and there is also a shower room with WC.
Upstairs, which is accessed by an outside staircase, there are 2 small twin bedrooms, one of which also has a small fitted wardrobe, plus a lounge area with television, fridge and tea making facilities. The lounge leads out onto a covered balcony overlooking the pool and excellent views of the area. There is also a shower room and WC and a seperate walk-in wardrobe area.
The property is in a good location and the pool is very clean and well maintained...but...in the kitchen the fridge freezer was noticeably rusting and the cutlery (yep, knives,forks and spoons) were showing signs of rust - a few quid on cheap stainless steel replacements is badly needed.  The cleaning was below what you would expect, the kids clothes had to go in the wash after being in contact with the floor under the beds - just a sea of dust and debris. Oh and to get anything clean in the washing machine requires generally two washes. The satellite TV at first showed signs of hope for the kids until we saw that there was no lead going into the back of the receiver and a rusty shell of a dish on the roof. All in all you can get away with it if just using it as a base to explore the island but they desperately need to spend some money on it. Wont be back again.
Whilst this is advertised as a beautiful house, a better description would be rustic. The outside space and pool are absolutely lovely, but there are some shortcomings in the house. The bedrooms are tiny with little or no storage, the bathrooms are severely lacking in storage space and finishes such as tiling. The outside steps to the upstairs area would be an issue in wet weather and the covered areas are not water proof. Having said that, we had a lovely relaxing time at the villa, with fabulous views and amazing peace and quiet.
July 2010: Villa Minyo is a nice, basic house, with a large garden and swimming-pool in the country-side. Very private, hard to find with the received directions (tip: At Son Servera follow direction Cala Millor At the roundabout just ouside the town, follow direction Port Verd (Carretera de Comellar Fondo). After about 1,5 km you pass a up-going round on the left-hand-side. Its the next driveway on your right (cant see the house from the road).
Vieuws are great. Location is near enough to town and supermarkets. Car is useful, also because of distance from Palma Airport. We might come back here. Hope the poollights are working next time...
Charming little villa,plenty of space for a family of four,good sized pool which had plenty of use by the kids,well equiped kitchen,great location cala bona only 20 minute walk away although i would recommend a hire car,ample garden for a game of football,overall we all enjoyed our stay at the minyo
Basic no frills property which would benefit from a bit of TLC. Pool was very good size. Mariona the owner was very attentive and responded very quickly when we needed anything. WOULD BENEFIT HUGELY FROM PARTIAL AIR CON INSTALLATION EVEN IF ONLY on THE UPPER FLOOR. Also a sign to identify the property more easily on arrival would be good. Location very good with easy access up and down the coast.
