About Sheila Cox

British owners, my husband and I first came to the island in 1999, the people are so friendly and the beach in Cala en Porter is wonderful for familes of all ages.

We have had the villa since it was newly built in 2001/2 and like to keep in updated, but still in the traditional style of the Menorcan villa's, with the high wood beamed ceilings.

We have been living in Menorca since 2006. I am very involved with the local community and my husband works full time but we both look after the needs of our guests that stay in the villa as we only live just a couple of minutes away.

Sheila Cox purchased this villa in 2001

Great Family Property

  • 5 of 5

We have fond memories of Villa Shilo. We have spent the last few summers there as a family, it has been home from home in the sun. The kids had a fabulous time learning to swim in the pool and playing on the grass which is an added bonus. Cala en Porter is also a great small town with some lovely restaurants – a great location for a family. In fact we love it so much we are back again this year, just at a slightly larger villa as we have increased in numbers.

Steve and Sheila are great hosts, never under your feet – but around if you need them.

Ultimate relaxation

  • 4 of 5

We have been back to Villa Shilo sometimes twice a year for the last seven years. When we arrive we feel as if we have come home! The villa is well equipped so that you have the choice of eating in if you want and it is always spotlessly clean (thanks to Sheila) when we arrive. The garden is spacious and the pool always lovely and clean( thanks to Steve).Ideally placed for the village and the beach. The owners are close at hand and will always help out with any information or assistance. Ideal for a family or smaller party. We hope that we will be returning to Villa Shilo for many years to come.
