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 undiscovered with hardly any tourists. I have seen it grow and witnessed all the changes. I have now lived permanently on the island for 30 years. I am on hand to help with any additional information required during your stay. I look forward to welcoming you. Caroline (Carry)

Owner purchased this house in 1986

Guestbook comments from the owner

My brother and I have had a most amazing time at Casa D'or in Calan Porter. The house is wonderful, very spacious, it is situated in a wonderful part of town and overlooks the beach and sea.

The house itself has everything one could wish for, it is spotlessly clean and is beautifully furnished.

The owner Caroline cannot do enough for you to see that you have every comfort and that you are not without anything.

The beautiful pool and it's surrounding garden is lovely and everything is so well kept that you will leave saying that this was possibly the best Summer Holiday that one could ever have had.

Great villa, great place

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, well placed villa - well worth the short walk up the hill from the bay. It has stunning views to the sea or down to the bay and the village from it's various terraces - the top terrace was a great place to watch the sunset. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped with plenty of spaces where we could all get together, and others for a bit of peace. Caroline was very welcoming and helpful. The villa and Calan Porter had everything we were hoping for. Thank you Caroline. We might not make it back next year, but when we do we would be delighted to be able to stay here again.

Casa D'or review

  • 5 of 5

We thought Casa D'Or was a beautiful villa. Extremely clean and well equipped - everything was provided that you could need on a holiday. The 3 downstairs bedrooms were fantastic and the first floor bedroom with its own bathroom was perfect for the grandparents. Caroline was a great host and we would love to come again.

Lovely house with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious house with awesome views across the sea, bay and town. Three terraces to choose from and a great pool area. Description is spot on, but maybe a little understated. Feels more like being in a home rather than a soulless villa - it has lots of charm. Property is very clean and well maintained. Caroline the owner provides excellent customer service, both before and during stay. Information pack is very useful and comprehensive. It a short walk (10-15mins) from the resort centre but is hilly (so be prepared). The supermarkets do delivery, which we found to be very handy! No aircon (and says so in description) but fans in all rooms. Can be a bit uncomfortable when very hot, but ok once used to. In the town we frequented the Somoa restaurant - great food, value and service. Definitely recommend the resort and house, which would hire again. Great week. Love it!

Perfect for all three generations!

  • 5 of 5

We took our 2 small children to Menorca back in 2015, and though we had a lovely break, our villa hadn't been up to much - wasn't anything like the pictures!! As we loved the island (and the 2 hour flight time!) we returned this year with grandparents in tow. So we sought something a bit more special and Casa D'Or certainly did not disappoint. You could tell it was someone's home when you walked in, it smelt really fresh and was beautifully furnished. We instantly felt at home. Town was a comfortable 10 minute stroll away via some stunning views. Normally we would eat out more than in, but the kitchen was so well-equipped that we ate out by the pool almost every night. The bedrooms were very comfortable with more then ample clothes-hanging space and the master suite was beautiful - massive bed! Unfortunately our kids were so excited by the prospect of the pool every morning that they didn't afford any of us much lie-in time. Though breakfast out by the pool every day is a pre-requisite to being on holiday, and it was bliss. Caroline came to check all was ok and she was as lovely as the other reviewers had said. She had made sure we had potties, child toilet seats, and kids tables and chairs for eating in the garden which really helped, plus some inflatables whihc the kids loved. Can't understand why she doesn't live in the this villa full time though! Her loss was our gain. Oh and the views from the house! They were truly spectacular. The grand-parents thoroughly enjoyed their peaceful times sat on the roof or terrace drinking wine and watching the sunset while we put our little ones to bed. Was very relaxing and just what the doctor (literally) ordered after a tough period for the family. We will be back if they'll have us.
