Quotes from Guests: “We had a wonderful time - your house was beautiful as always, and the weather superb.”
“We had a great time in your lovely house in Santanyi. We were pleased we hired a car to get about, though we enjoyed non touristy aspects of your house location. Your property has been restored beautifully and we were impressed by your taste and design within it. We spent days out at Llombards, Cala Santanyi, one day at Cala D'Or, all very pleasant. We enjoyed market on Saturday. We would recommend your house to friends because of its facilities and cleanliness, and easy access to lovely uncrowded beaches.”
“Your house was beautiful - so peaceful and comfortable! We loved Santanyi - it really was a truly Spanish experience. We loved the market and sitting up in the square at night. It is a great base to explore the Island but it was so nice to get back to Santanyi - we hope to go back one day! We enjoyed looking after your house and treating it as our own home (oh how we wished it was!).'

About Jade Neergaard
I have known and loved Mallorca all my adult life, my family spent many unbelievable happy holidays in fantastic circumstances right above the beach at Cala Llombards, my daughters learned to swim there very young and this very beautiful area of Mallorca is comfortingly in our hearts always. It is a privilege to feel we belong.
Jade Neergaard purchased this House in 2003
Why Jade Neergaard chose Santanyí
We knew this was it when the door was opened for us the first time, because it is so charming in its simplicity. Because it is absolutely perfect for our holiday needs, and all grown up we have to admit it was very nice to progress from primitive living above the beach in Cala Llombards to a bathroom. .
What makes this House unique
Just minutes walk from the sometimes bustling Placa Major of Santanyi, it is private and hidden the minute one closes the big door shutters, while the open doors and windows to the courtyard provide a larger living space. In the summer we eat all our meals outside. In the winter when leaving the house one walks onto a street, and not out into a muddy field, and at any time, if one wants company, there are people at the friendly bars and cafes of Placa Major. Although Santanyi strongly retains its Mallorquin origins, the town has become sophisticated and cosmopolitan simutaneously with being very local. It is in a very beautiful rural region , but still only an hour from the heart of Palma. When returning from an expedition to other parts of the island, Palma or the airport, it feels so good to be back.

This townhouse in Santanyi, is very well presented and in a great location. The kitchen is really well equipped, and has everything, if not more, to prepare an evening meal, the location of the house is great for all local amenities and only minutes away from the town centre, the property is on street parking but this did not prove too difficult. The host was really quick to respond with any queries around the booking, and inside the house there was an information pack which was really useful, also the Housekeeper lives on the same street, so it was comforting to know she was there if we ran into any problems. I would stay at this property again.
A perfect house in a stunning area of Mallorca
Coming from Australia, we found Santanyi in Mallorca to be a perfect place to begin a European holiday and relax before further travel. The beautifully restored 100 year old stone house is comfortable, well presented, tastefully furnished and made us feel instantly at home.
On arrival we collected the key from the wonderful Teresa who lives nearby and maintains the property in perfect condition. The kitchen was well stocked with basic ingredients and everything you could possibly need, including a modern dishwasher and washing machine.
The main bedroom was comfortable with plenty of hanging space and we slept well thanks to the quiet location. The bathroom had an excellent supply of hot water and was well fitted, and the second toilet downstairs was a bonus. Free WiFi allowed us to keep in touch with home. A range of TV programs and DVDs are available.
The charming stone courtyard was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a drink after a busy day of sightseeing.
The sunny spring time weather was perfect for visiting the local beaches and fishing villages and being out of the main holiday season meant no crowds. We hired a car at the airport and easily found our way to Santanyi. Parking at the house is easy and is free. Easy day trips are possible from Santanyi to Palma, the east coast villages, the national parks and the beautiful mountain areas to the north west. Santanyi is well served by supermarkets and a bonus is the popular twice a week market with wonderful fresh produce. The town square and surrounding area has many good cafes, bakeries and boutiques. A favorite coffee spot was Goli, just around the corner from the house.
The owner Jade, was very helpful in providing information prior to our arrival. Our week long stay was a highlight of our European holiday and we would certainly recommend the house to others.
Delighful town house in Satanyi
This is a delightful small tow n house within walking distance of all amenties but you need a car to get to the beaches. Very clean and all mod cons. Certainly to be recommended.
Santanyi, a perfectly authentic Mallorca town.
My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at this townhouse for the month of February. The apartment was nicely furnished and fully equipped. Everything was very well maintained too. The description of the townhouse is accurate and the photos really show it all. It's location is right in the center of town so that everything in Santanyi is within walking distance. The place is very clean and has WiFi which was necessary for us during our stay. Jade was very helpful when getting the wireless set up for us before we arrived.
We have never been to Mallorca before and could not believe the diverse landscape and beauty of this island. We explored the entire island and Santanyi is one of our favorite places, it is so authentic and not touristy at all. There was snow on the mountains and the almond trees were in bloom! The best beaches of the entire island are only minutes away by car. Driving around the island is very easy and the roads are well marked. Visiting the mountain villages of Pollenca, Soller and Fornalutx are also a must. February is a quiet time but we enjoyed it tremendously. The outdoor markets in the village square were on Wed. and Sat. even though the weather was chilly. Pablos restaurant was our favorite restaurant and we had dinner there a few times. We definitely plan to come back again soon. Overall, it was such a wonderful experience in a wonderful place.
It is always lovely when guests express exactly what we want them to feel about our house in lovely Santanyi which is a very special town on such a beautiful island. We are so happy that they were able to enjoy find the winter beauty of Mallorca and explore the island. I commend them for being brave and doing something totally different in what "at home" wherever that is in Northern Europe, or in this case, North America can be a very cold and gloomy month.
The house was exactly as described. It was exceptionally clean, private, and very beautiful! The owner provided great customer service and was very prompt in replying to email. The information she has about nearby beaches is priceless. Cala Llombards really is the best!
This is a great little place and it is a two or three minute walk to the plaza. The city of Santanyi is a good size without being overwhelming. The people are welcoming to tourists and this is a great place from which to explore the entire island. Wifi is available in the plaza. I would have been willing to pay more for the house if internet had been available there.
It was like a home away from home. I have been recommending this place to everyone. We will certainly be back!
Morgan from Kentucky, USA
What can I say? Only that this is exactly the sort of reaction we like our guests to have and I am very happy that our guests had such a good time and benefitted from the information I provided. Mallorca is such a beautiful island and we are happy to share it´s secrets with people who are so appreciative.
If you want to spend holidays in Majorca somewhere else than in a big hotel with a high concentration of tourists, don't hesitate: rent this house!
This house is really comfortable and nice. The furniture and the decoration are done with nice style. The village of Santanyi is great and the Cala Lombard beach is really beautiful.
I can deeply recommend this place.
The beautiful small town of Santanyi dates from 1300 and has one of Mallorca's most impressive village squares where an excellent market is held twice weekly year round. The square is dominated by church from same date with most famous organ played during summer. The square is 5 mins walk from the house to have a drink or coffee and enjoy 'watching the people' While retaining its old charm Santanyi has become very sophisticated in recent years and provides bakeries, shops, restaurants and cafes, art galleries, ceramic workshops, antique and craft shops, boutiques and all amenities. The house is within 7 - 10 mins. drive of some of Mallorcas best beaches reached down winding country roads bordered with stone walls. Lovely walks and cycling in the area and many good restaurants in local countryside. 20 mins drive from Es Trenc beach and good golf (Val d'or). Most importantly, while having all amenties, Santanyi is as far removed from typical tourist resorts as one can imagine. Other Activities: Shopping at market twice weekly, beautiful rural walks, sitting at charming cafes in village square and watching the world go by. Golf: Mallorca has excellent golf courses: Val D'or 18 hole course is only 20 mins drive away and Pula only 50 mins. There are closer 9 hole courses at Son Servera and La Rotana.
