Originally from the UK, Kent area, I have lived in Menorca for 35 years, running a harbour side restaurant with my husband and raising my family, who have now all grown and flown the nest. I now dedicate myself to improving my property in Binibeca in the winters and visiting my family during the summer whilst my house is enjoyed by others.
Helen purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Helen chose Binibequer Vell
The mature gardens and split levels of this property provide several different areas to relax, dine, sunbathe or simply while away the time with a book in the hammock under the trees listening to the birds.
What makes this Villa unique
The unique benefits of this property are definately found in its location. It is so close to the beach you can hear the waves on a breezy day. This proximity to both beach and all amenities make car rental a personal choice and not a necessity, yet it is quiet and secluded surrounded by pines and wild olive trees. There are both sunny and shaded areas within the garden making it ideal for all preferences and age groups.

Luxurious ,peaceful haven
This was our second stay at this villa. We rebooked following a wonderful week last summer and were not disappointed!
Helen's villa is stylish and internally immaculately presented. It is set in beautiful and mature private gardens. The out door living area overlooking the large pool is a particularly comfortable 'room ' in which to enjoy an alfresco breakfast and/or lunch or simply enjoy a good book!
The villa's location is excellent quiet but within easy walking distance of a range of excellent restaurants.
I cannot recommend the villa more highly other than to say we are retuning for a third stay next year !!!!
Thank you for such a lovely review Sue and family.
I was very happy to welcome you back again and am delighted you enjoyed your holiday as much as last year.
We enjoyed joining you for a sundowner on the terrace and getting to know you better.
I am looking forward to you returning with extended family next year.
Thank you for taking such good care of my home. X
Beautiful house in a convenient location
We had such a wonderful week staying at Helen's house. Firstly the house is clean and feels like a home from home, we were six adults, 2 children and a baby and the space suited us perfectly. The gardens and pool were such a lovely quiet place to relax with many shady spots to hide from the heat if you need to and we enjoyed many a nap in the hammock.
The children loved feeding the tortoises and there was a park pretty much at the bottom of the garden which was handy. The beach really is only a 5 minute walk away down a track out the back of the house and it is a beautiful beach, it has a bar, lounger hire and pedalo hire. Shops and restaurants are also an easy walk away. There are two small grocery shops in walking distance but we found it cheaper to drive to the bigger super market (10/15 mins) to get groceries.
The house comes well equipped with bath towels and pool towels and Helen even provided us with a cot and high chair. The outside terrace and sofa area was a great space for eating and having a nice glass of wine in the evening after the children had gone to bed. The house and terrace can be gated off from the pool if you want which was great for us.
The communication with Helen was great, her partner Ian welcomed us and showed us all we needed to know about the house and Helen popped by a couple days later to check all was okay. Oh and she left us a little arrival hamper of nibbles and drink and tea bags which was much appreciated.
My family and I all really loved the house and can't wait to come back to Menorca again, we would definitely stay at Helen's house again. Highly recommended, thank you for letting us stay!
Thank you very much for the nice review. It was lovely to meet you and your family, I'd like to thank you for looking after everything so well and I'd love to welcome you back another time in the future.
I'm very pleased you enjoyed your holiday.X
Beautiful villa in lovely gardens
We recently spent a wonderfully relaxing week in Helen's beautiful villa. The villa itself is even more appealing than the website suggests - all rooms are tastefully decorated with all the facilities you could need. The mature gardens are the perfect place to relax - many an hour was spent reading in the hammocks under the shade. Our three children loved the big swimming pool and there are plenty of places to eat outside. We loved the resident tortoises and enjoyed searching the garden for them! The location is perfect - just a short stroll to the white sandy beach and a few minutes from small shops and restaurants. A peaceful and private villa that we hope to return to one day. Thank you Helen for a fabulous place to stay.
Thank you for this great review Catherine. I'm very happy you enjoyed your holiday in my home and I would love to welcome you and your family back another year.
A Wonderful Paradise
My family and I have enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Helens beautiful spacious villa. We felt like we were staying in paradise. In our opinion it was even nicer than we expected from the pictures. Our group comprised of my husband and I, my son and girlfriend who are in their twenties , and my youngest son who is 16 years old. Helen allowed us too leave our bags at the property as we arrived on an early flight, while the preparation was completed. She then showed us around and gave some suggestions for places to eat and visit etc. There are lots of books to read so no real need to bring your own .
We found the villa to be spacious and spotlessly clean. We stayed for two weeks and really appreciated the mid stay clean , and linen change which was thoroughly completed.
We spent lots of time lazing by the pool and appreciated the fact that there were more than enough sun beds for us all. Lots of sun or shade depending on what you want.
We were only minutes from the beach yet the villa felt peaceful and private. the beach was lovely and we enjoyed the beach bar. There were many places nearby to eat. We often went to a small bakery in Cala Torret for breakfast as its tables were outdoor and offered healthy options and even sold spelt bread, and unusual options along with the usual baguettes etc. There were may restaurants some with better food than others, but all were friendly. We particularly liked the ones at CallaTorret, and one called Pedros in particular. Half way towards Binibeca Val in the other direction was the Bini Inn which had pleasant food but was also amazing for watching the sunset.
The tortoises in the garden were a delight and we loved hand feeding them lettuce. We didn't handle them but two seemed eager to come to us.There were three around when we stayed though one was much shyer than the others. Sometimes you would look for them and there would be no sign of them at all and then an hour later they would be back.
We hired a car through a company called Amber cars, and were met at the airport by a representative of the company. She could not have been more helpful. We hired a smallish car and were going to do two journeys to the villa but the lovely young lady from the car company helped us secure a couple of cases to the roof bars.
We visited Mahon, St Louis, Es Castell harbour in the evening which is beautifully lit up and Ciutadella, and enjoyed shopping there.
A fabulous stay and memorable holiday. Thank you Helen!!
Thank you very much for a wonderful and very complete review.
You have made many helpful suggestions for other visitors.
I am very pleased you seem to have encouraged a third tortoise into the garden, I have only ever see two and I am of course delighted that you enjoyed your holiday. It was lovely to meet you and your family and I hope to welcome you back on another occasion.
Wonderful villa, could not have asked for more, beautiful pool. and great that it was only a few mins walk to a gorgeous beach.
Would certainly be back another year
Thank you, very pleased you enjoyed your holiday and would be more than happy to welcome you back another year.
Binibeca is certainly a gorgeous beach and the beach bar is THE place to watch the sun go down, chilled drink in hand!
Idyllic villa and location
On arrival as we walked down the steps to the villa, our breath was taken away by the sight of the glistening blue pool, beautiful greenery and the terrace surrounding the villa - it was even more beautiful then the website photos.
Helen was there to greet us and show us around, it was lovely to meet her after the numerous emails answering lots of my random questions !!
We were a family of 5 that included my 10 month granddaughter. The villa was spotless ( a credit to Helen and her cleaning team ) very spacious with a beautiful well equipped kitchen that was a pleasure to cook in whilst on holiday.
There are so many lovely areas around the villa but my favourite was the upper terrace and having the safety gate made this a lovely area for my granddaughter to whizz around in her hired baby walker.
Binibeca is a beautiful small resort and the closeness of this villa to the beautiful beach makes this the perfect rental. Thank you once again Helen for allowing us to rent your wonderful home.
