"Modern well equiped apartment with fantastic view of the sea from the large balcony"
This apartment is very well equiped with fridge/freezer, large oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, coffee maker, wine cooler, wi-fi and numerous smaller appliances. It is in a residential area which we liked. There are some hotels around but they are well spaced and it does not feel like a tourist resort. There are 3 beaches within 10 minutes walk. We used the 2 nearest the apartment and found them excellent (the water was wonderfully clear and there was a lifeguard on duty at the first beach). We went to Palma twice using the local bus service which cost 1.50euro and left the bus stop (200 yards from the apartment) every 15 minutes. We also took the train trip from Palma to Soller which went through the mountains and out on the north-west side of the island. You can then catch a tram which takes you to the coast (this is a highly recommeded trip). We also went to Marineland which was well worth it just to see the dolphins (this is a 10 minute trip in a local taxi). We also had an evening in Magaluf (just to see why the youngsters all go there) had a lovely meal in a beachside restaurant and an enjoyable evening, although it is quite quiet there in October!
The owner of this property was always at the end of the phone for advice on where to go and how to get there. There is wi-fi in the apartment but we were unable to connect to it so we used a nearby restaurant.
I can thoroughly recommend this apartment.

"A great stay in a great location!"
So we landed at the international airport " Palma de Mallorca " ... a little tired .... there is still a way home in Illietas ... Hurry to get to places ...
Very easy to reach by car from the airport. And no luck - rain ... we went with a young daughter , with heavy suitcases . Hands is not enough.
But the parking machine was next to the entrance of the airport, and we had no
labor found their fiery red "Bug" :) .
We had previously rented on the advice of the owners of our apartment , a car «Record car». Nisanchik New Beetle has contained all of our luggage , stroller and ourselves. We are on the way ...
We met a very welcoming Katie , gave us the keys and told in detail about the apartment - which is where , how the appliances, air conditioning , etc.
Agreed with her about cleaning the apartment at the time of our stay. Very sweet was our hostess .
The first time we rented an apartment for the rest . So all of the hotels more ...
A little scared , a little err - taking with him a few more things than usual , and still a little kid - you know , that does not wash.
After all, my mother , too, need to rest. And what was my surprise when, in addition to a new washing machine was still alone and drying machine ! !
Yes, in addition to washing and tablets ! It was just super!
Great stove that heated up in just a few hundredths of a second, oven, coffee maker, tostnitsa , food processor - I can not even boast that I have it all in the presence of the house. And on the grill can be a legend - a delicious fish and meat cooked on it, we did not try. Fast, useful , and terribly tasty. Cooking was a pleasure - to taste different dishes every housewife , table - beautiful plates , cutlery, glasses for different varieties of wine, salad bowls of different sizes and a lot of - a lot of things . Large roomy refrigerator with a special shelf for refrigerated meat or fish. Why write about the first kitchen and technology .... I'm a mom and a housewife and I have invested in this most important of our family life , even on the holidays. Therefore, in restaurants as a not very desirable ... Our selection of wines and huge .... You come to the beach ... took out a bottle of chilled champagne from a special cabinet for wine with a certain temperature ... slowly ... serviruesh cook dinner table on the terrace with a stunning view of the sea under his surf fried ... nice piece of meat on the grill ... ripe vegetables grilled ...
Beauty ! ... And a worthy conclusion of the evening ... dezhustiv , but in a comfortable armchair and a broad
starry sky with taste and smell of the sea of flowers all on the same terrace ... magical utensils collected and
washed in the dishwasher itself - landed ... but terribly practical and
:) To my delight, conveniently there is no limit ....
The apartments themselves are worthy of a chapter in my writing.
Light a small corridor . Lots of light . All white and blue . A huge TV on the wall in the village of white comfy sofas .
And the window in the wall facing the sea ... It was good to lie here in the afternoon to relax and dream ... looking at the sky - blue expanse of the sea ... the view is simply stunning ...
To the left of the entrance to the hallway bathroom, gleaming tile, with a mirror in the wall , and a plurality of shelves for all sorts of things .
In the corner behind the door - and do not even notice it right away - and a washing
dryer - my main helper :) .
Just beyond the bathroom - kitchen ... But this is not a kitchen in the understanding of the mistress - is the kitchen - dining room - living room all in one.
Work of Art - pure white light with a huge window overlooking the sea - access to the terrace ( it separately )
with a large table and chairs with high backs , soft and comfortable . We have a long lunch - could not finish the way - so it was cozy and pleasant .
So it's - the center of the apartment for us and our friends ... Fragrant scalding coffee, delicious bread and good friends - what more do you need ?
And here is the children's room. Small cozy room with warm yellow walls ,
the floor is very pleasant to the touch - a wooden , and not only in the children - but also in the apartment.
And on the ceiling - electric light - stars shine long merry lights. Spacious wardrobe , a comfortable chair where you can sit to read.
And a large trunk with a huge amount of pure scented bath towels. This is very convenient, especially in the south.
They have to be changed frequently , and wash and dry the problems they were not.
From the dining room entrance to another room - the bedroom. Bedroom - a combination of blue and white . In the corner - a tall mirror . Pictures on the walls .
A large comfortable bed with excellent mattress. A closet .... there you can place the zoo - a huge roomy with lots of drawers,
and probably the most comfortable - in every department of the cabinet could hang things on hangers . Even our little princess dresses neatly amuse one after the other .
For the little daughter was a little comfortable bed that once was appreciated our princess.
Terrace in the evening ... when we were settled , were already twilight ... until we have considered all inside ... came up to the terrace in the least ...
and it was an incredible feeling when we finally got there ... WOW! !
A huge , white , greenery and flowers with a stunning view of the sea, the town and the beach ...
as it is divided into two zones - a chair with chairs for dining and relaxation area - soft white sofa with lots of pillows,
two wicker soft comfortable armchairs, padded sun bed ... and all this with the surf and the sea breeze .... not with what the hotel is not be compared .
And finally , a couple of nice little things . It was very surprising , but all of the accessories for the beach - umbrellas, beach towels,
even mask for snorkeling, not to mention the children's toys - all of it was. And it was really nice.
And what we were listening to Spanish radio in the evenings :)
The apartment exceeded all my expectations ! This apartment is not to come and sleep just a night
as usually happens in hotels - it wants to live , and every time back ...
Thank you very much Masters . They took care of all my heart that we were pleased and rest well .
The apartment can tell a lot about their hosts. If people are kind , open, kind-hearted - and then they have a cozy apartment , bright and sunny .

"Pristine apartment in picturesque location."
From the moment we booked till we arrived home the owners have been so helpful, nothing too much trouble. We spent 10 days in their lovely apartment.
It is as pictured and as described ,perfect ,spotlessly clean.Huge Panasonic TV dvd in lounge.Top notch white goods, crockery ,cutlery, glasses and cooking utensils. Dishwasher and clothes wash and tumble dryer provided .Hairdryer, docking station, free Wi Fi plenty of towels inc tea towels even a shaving mirror! New memory foam bed ,sheets (like thin silk) dried quickly , a television and full length mirror. Wardrobe space huge in both rooms.Walk in shower with overhead and body wash head with the feature of the cliff face exposed,superbly lit and tiled. 2 aircon units in apartment.
Illetes is built on the side of a cliff so you would expect steps and hills in fact. The apartment is accessed by steps (I am old and found them easy enough). The balcony overlooks the beach and your garden with comfortable well chosen furniture, an added plus is the fully adjustable metal retractable sun roof .You have a terrace with a BBQ, table and chairs once again 1st class. The garden is shared but no one else used it while we were there.Its a beautiful area with Hibiscus, Bougainvilleas and flowers, so exotic. You hear the sea, listen to the birds,watch the bats at night and the humming bird moth that collects nectar all day.
The beach is gently shelved and water sparkling clear, take binoculars if you like boats or to people watch! The neighbour next door is friendly .There are no nightclubs or rowdy bars ,neighbours were quiet.
A walk of 3 mins to the beach a little longer back.
If you look on google earth you can only see the stone wall and the shrubs in your garden ,despite it being a ground floor apartment it is elevated well above road level .
Although we didn't use the bus they are frequent. Metered car parking outside and free parking 3/4 mins walk. An Erowski supermarket which has everything and good prices is 5 mins by car.
Whilst we were there we window shopped and came to the conclusion that the location and apartment could not be beaten. We wonder if we should be saying all this as we would like to go again and fear it will be over booked! Jon Kate and Leah

"Feels like home,looks like paradise"
Tne apartment is excellent. Modem decor, kitchen bathroom, is extremely spacious and has a large balcony overlooking the fantastic beach. The owners are extremely helpful, and will answer to your every request. It's location is only a short bus journey from plama, and area is flushed more with locals and not tourists, which is a bonus. Would stay here again 100%.
My only negatives would be the Internet is not great, so a local phone would be handy to be able o call taxis etc....and the main bed could do with a larger bed and a little softer mattress....but these are not deterrents as everything else was fantastic.

"Great apartment with excellent sea view."
Apartment is exactly like on the pictures. Very clean, all facilities are in place and in perfect condition. Big supermarket is 10-15 minutes walk or 3 minutes drive (taxi cost 4 EUR). Access to the beach is not straight down, you have to walk around the buildings, but it takes 4-5 minutes only. The terrace and the view is gorgeous. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed a lot!
