As the owners of our villa, we wish to be fair and honest regarding our short term rentals. As such if you would prefer to book, without paying the 8% Owners Direct booking fee plus the Owners Direct 3% payment processing fee, then our villa is also on the Simply Owners site. They offer you 100% payment protection and you incur no charges.

This is the perfect villa for any discerning family group. But don't just take our word for it please do read our reviews, including those for this year 2017!

We respond to enquiries within 2 hours.

Halcyon is a large, luxury villa, quietly located just outside the pretty village of Sant Josep. Halcyon has been offering superb short term rental accommodation to our guests, their families and friends since 2001. The main feature is, as told by its many guests, that Halcyon does not feel like a rental home; it feels like 'your own' home, but better because the weather is so wonderful!! Our philosophy is to try and ensure that when you rent you should accept nothing less than the comfort and convenience that you have in your own home. For example, a shower that has a strong powerful water supply and kitchen knives and utensils for the most discerning chef. We think you want a bed with a comfortable mattress and 100% cool, cotton sheets. Then there are the little things like lighting with dimmer switches, quality china plates and glasses; soft pillows and a proper hairdryer. If you find anything that you feel we can do better we will do our best to facilitate that. Click on 'more details' in blue type face below.

We also understand the increased need for security when booking on line so please do call us for a friendly chat. You can find out a little more about us, our villa and its surroundings. We want you to feel confident and totally comfortable when you make your reservation, leaving you with complete peace of mind.

As to the villa itself, (please do take a look at some of the previous guests reviews), it has a light, fresh interior reflecting a French Colonial feel with an Ibizan twist. This spacious property is ideal for 2 families or larger family groups; who also require their own space and privacy. It is quietly, yet conveniently, situated within its own grounds, and close to Sant Josep village, which has all main amenities (see below). The villa is designed and furnished with our discerning families & our celebrity guests in mind. Perfectly located for Cala Jondal, Salinas, KM5, and Blue Marlin etc. At night the pool, garden & BBQ lighting allow evening swims & atmospheric dining. Super quiet A/C in all bedrooms. Hairdryers provided. Sound Bar for music to be played via smartphone, MP3 player, tablet or computer.

Bath & Body products in bathrooms. Non salty tap water! Safe, Electric gates, private parking. Beautiful views, especially from the very large master bedroom, to the sea & terraces of beautiful almond trees leading to pine clad hills.

Wonderful house and pool in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The photos are great but don't really do the house justice, it's a fabulous villa with a huge pool that was very welcome in the summer heat. Contact and advice from Mary Ann was also excellent before and after our week at her lovely home from home.

The villa is ideally situated just 15 mins from the airport and close to all the best beaches in the area and to San Antonio for the big supermarkets etc though the Hiper Supermarket just up the road was fine for most of our needs.

The ability to walk to Pizzeria Es Verge just a couple of mins walk to the house was a bonus. The food is great and you can also take Pizza's away. There is also a good local Spanish bar and restaurant even close.

We did little more than short runs to beaches on this visit and I have to say that if you're looking for a comfortable and well equipped house in which to spend a relaxing break you really can't do much better. We didn't want to leave....

Best Summer Family Holidays Ever

  • 5 of 5

We always preferred going to big hotels with top notch kids club attached to it and this was the first time we had ventured into renting a villa all to ourselves for two week with our 6 year old son. I have to say, we had the best summer vacation ever. Not only did we enjoy the two weeks, we also did not want to leave Ibiza anymore. Mary Ann is really the perfect host, she got everything sorted for us and answered many of my requests and questions with warmth. I felt welcomed before we even arrived. Any family looking for a stay in a nice luxury house for two families, this is the villa you want to rent. Mica who helps out with the house was also a tremendous help. Thank you again Mary Ann and Mica for everything. We will return to Ibiza in a not so distant future! All the best.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind and generous comments. We do work hard to try and get things right and when our guests are happy that is the greatest reward we could ask for. Ibiza is a magical place and when you get the bug that's it!! We are so very happy that you enjoyed 'the villa' experience. We would love to welcome you in the future.

Wonderful spacious relaxing Villa

  • 5 of 5

‘Villa Halcyon’ is spacious and was beautifully presented on our arrival. Mica the friendly caretaker greeted us on arrival

and introduced us to the villa and was on hand throughout making our stay very comfortable.

The pool is lovely and deep and a great size for lengths, nice towels, shades and sun beds are provided.

Sant Josep is a short walk away with all the conveniences you need. Great supermarket and pizza restaurants also ATM machine, but a car is needed.

The Villa is well located for Ibiza town and the Beach Restaurants.

We all had a great time and hope to be back again soon.

Our deposit was promptly returned, many thanks Mary Ann 

About MaryAnn and Steven

Hello! My name is MaryAnn. Steve and I bought Halcyon in 2000. We fell in love with Ibiza many years before that and finally decided that we wanted to move from Hove, where we had been living since 1993, and start a new and exciting venture. We looked at many properties on the island and finally found beautiful Halcyon - it was love at first sight! We live in the villa at times, as well as rent it on a short term basis. We believe by living in the villa too it gives the best opportunity to ensure that our rental guests get what they expect during their stay. Do we get it right? Well, not 100% of the time, but its close and we are only human after all (but honest!)!! we take pride in that if something does go wrong we aim to be available to assist and put it right as quickly as possible. We are proud to have offered short term rental at Halcyon successfully for the past 17 years. The most rewarding part has been to see many families and their friends book year after year. We believe that in this ever increasing competitive market place we must endeavour to improve the standard of the villa year on year and certainly our high occupancy levels and guest reviews demonstrate that we have achieved this. We enjoy all that Ibiza has to offer. Steve takes a very keen interest in cooking and in line with that we enjoy growing my own salads and vegetables in the lovely fruit garden at Halcyon. We love the endless choice of some of the best beaches and have a special love for the nearby islands of Es Palmador and Fomentera. We highly recommend you visit them if you can whilst visiting Ibiza. We have always loved travelling in the UK and Europe, preferring the space and flexibility that a villa or cottage can offer over a hotel. We love luxury and comfort but most importantly that it comes with informality and relaxation. That is the real beauty and pleasure discovered when spending time at Halcyon.

MaryAnn and Steven purchased this villa in 2000

Why MaryAnn and Steven chose San José Obrero

It includes a separate gorgeous summer house for 2 with its own private mini pool which is also available for short term rental. Please enquire.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Clare and Louise: Thank you for all of your help we had an absolutely lovely week.

Paul and Nicola: London: The views from both the front and back are spectacular and the house is so well thought out with every modern convenience. The Master Suite is superb and the kitchen provided everything needed. A fabulous villa owned by two really nice people!

Ivica: USA: July 2010. The villa itself is gorgeous and very spacious with an amazing pool and BBQ area. The pool area is well equipped with sun loungers and hammocks to enjoy the Ibiza sun. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for all the best in a villa in Ibiza!

Jo: Netherlands: We stayed at Halcyon for four weeks in September. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. Great location, private & quiet with plenty of beaches within a 10 minute drive. I would definitely recommend this villa to everyone looking for a relaxing stay.
