About Owner

I first came to Menorca in 1968 as a child. My parents loved it so much that they bought 2 properties in Calan Porter . At that time the island was completely undiscoverd with hardly any tourists. I have seen it grow and witnessed all the changes. I have now lived permanently on the island for more than 25 years. I am on hand to help with any additional information required during your stay.

Why Owner chose Cala en Porter

This property is a great family retreat. Very spacious and suitable for a large family, or 2 groups of 4. Many friends with their children have had wonderful holidays in this house. It continues to surprise everyone who has never stayed before with it´s stunning views and beautifully maintained private pool.

We are told repeatedly that our fotos do not do justice to the real thing!

What makes this house unique

Quiet road, yet near enough to everything required for a wonderful holiday. Very friendly village atmosphere closeby.

Please note : We do not accept more than 8 people to stay in this property.

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5
This House has everything a family or couples could need.It was very clean and well presented with a homely feel to it.We found it an extremely relaxing place to stay.Our party consisted of 3 teenage children 15 to 19 and 2 adults.My husband loved the fact there were so many different areas to sit outside so you can always find shade if you wish.The pool was superb very clean , plenty of patio furniture too.We found it very easy to walk to the many restaurants in Cala'n Porter , Castillo was excellent and there were plenty of restaurants to choose from.The views from Club Menorca were amazing and they had a huge patio area overlooking the sea, this was very close to the Villa too, and a great place for drinks or Tapas.Carry the owner also has a hire car business and we had some great days out renting a car from her to really explore the island.A good tip is to book one to drive back to the airport too as the taxi was expensive and with 5 of us needed 2 taxis to accommodate us all.Nothing was too much trouble and she was very easy to contact should you need anything.
Overall I would highly recommend this Villa as it provides all you could ever need in a lovely quiet location.We walked daily to supermarket and did not need a car every day, making for a very restful stay.If you enjoy cooking you will find plenty of every type of china, pans, and kitchen implements nothing was skimped on as you can sometimes have with a rental property.Beds were comfortable with decent cotton bedding.Overall we could not fault the villa or the owner.

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5
The property had everything you could want. We were two couples so we had plenty of space. The pool and surrounding area is delightful and there are two lovely balconies, one we used for breakfast and the roof for cooling off after dinner, with fabulous views, including wonderful sunsets. The kitchen is small but equipped for everything and the fridge-freezer is big enough for all those drinks and a bit of salad and fresh fruit. We loved the downstairs double which was cool with a lovely big bath and double hand basins. The town and shops are, as promised, about eight minutes walk away but you need to be fairly fit as it's not on the level. The property itself would also not suit those who can't tackle steps with ease. Our conversations via email in advance with the owner were friendly and helpful and, on arrival, we found her just as charming and helpful. We'd wholeheartedly recommend this property.

"Peaceful and relaxing, just what we wanted"

"Peaceful and relaxing, just what we wanted"
  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Casa D or for the last 2 weeks in June, just my husband and myself for the 1st week then joined by our 3 sons and their wives the 2nd week. The villa is clean, large, spacious and comfortable with everything catered for. The pool and is lovely with a large area for sunbeds and a great bbq area. The views from the top terrace of the villa are amazing. Wonderful for watching the sun setting.
Our favourite local restaurant was La Palette. Its just a short walk from the villa. If you love ribsyou have to try them here. Across the way from the La Palette is the caves and bar Cova d en Xoroi, a must visit. We visited many places on the island and we were impressed with the resorts and many restaurants we went to. Our favourite trip was to Mao Harbour and the glass bottom boat trip.
Cala en Porter itself has a lovely sandy, safe beach, ideal for children. The beachside cafes were very good and good value.
We would definately recommend the villa and the resort. Carry the owner was always available to help if need be. This is our 3rd villa rented as a family and we are all in agreement that this was the best.

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned home from Menorca, I feel that I have to write a review on this wonderful house!

We weren't sure what to expect after holidaying in rented properties abroad before but feel that we struck gold with this one.

I can't recommend this house highly enough. It was beautifuly clean with essentials in the fridge when we arrived which was a really nice touch.

There are 4 really good size bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen with absolutely everything you need, a beautiful lounge with lovely furniture and books and sky t.v. The large pool is surrounded by a great terrace with 2 seating areas and built in bbq.
The sun terrace at the very top of the house gives breath taking views of all around and we loved to watch the sun set in the evening.

We really did feel like guests in someones home rather that renting a place to stay. Caroline, the owner answered all our questions before we left and was also available should we have needed her while we were there.
The house is within 10 minutes walk from the town where there are good restaurants and shops. The beautiful beach is about 10 minutes walk too.
There were 2 families of 4, so 8 in total staying at this house and we certainly weren't cramped as it was so spacious.
Please don't have any doubts or worries about booking this house, thanks to Caroline and the beautiful island of Menorca we would certainly go again!

Chicken soup for the soul

  • 5 of 5
My two best friends and I live hundreds of miles apart so it's wall to wall gossiping and chatting when we get together. However, we were all rendered silent last year when our jaws nearly hit the floor at this amazing property. Not only is the property something we would have expected to pay double for, but the furnishings and decor is incredible. None of the tat normally associated with a holiday rental accommodation. The location is incredible, it's as the picture shows, a short walk along that spectacular coast to the town. It's a perfect holiday location, fantastic sandy beach, great bars but not in the least commercialised.

And the owner, Caroline, proved to be worth her weight in gold when I stupidly dropped my wallet containing my passport and all my money on day one. She was there within the hour, driving me to town and translating at the police station. She even refunded part of my deposit to give me spending money and generally was a saint.

It is a a reflection of the property and the owner that losing all my money didn't spoil the holiday one little bit. It is literally the best holiday accommodation my friends and I have ever experienced.

Owner's Response: Angie thank you so much for your kind comments. I was only too pleased to help and as you said at the time...the scene at the Police station was quite comical!!

Do hope to see you back one of these day.

All the best,

Great Relaxing Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We've just come back from a weeks holiday and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The villa was perfect and the pool area excellent. Our two boys (aged 1 and 4) fell in love with the pet tortoises which live in the shrubs by the pool and took great delight in running out every morning to feed them some lettuce leaves!

The villa was equipped with everything you need (and more besides!) and the thing we loved was it felt very much like a home from home. We loved looking at all the books on the bookshelves and it was great that previous holidaymakers had left things for us to use (such as the inflatable rubber rings and boat for the pool and the childrens buckets and spade came in very handy as well!).

The villa is just the right distance away from everything and the views are stunning.

Caroline was very helpful and arranged for the cot and high chair that we needed and we really appreciated the cold beer and wine that was in the fridge on our arrival.

Thank you for a great holiday!!!
