About Amanda Hickey
My name is Amanda and I live in Harrow with my partner Gavin. I gave up the rat race and now look after pets for people going on holiday or away for the weekend. As a true animal lover it is a joy rather than a job. On my first trip to Menorca in 1982 it was love at first sight and my family has now owned a property on the island since I was 15. We have now had our apartment for the last ten years and were amazed by the views instantly. I have a real passion for the island and have enjoyed growing up there making many friends both Spanish and English some of whom I have known since I was a child. Our apartment was a pleasure to renovate and has a feeling of home from home which is exactly what Menorca has become for me over the many years I have enjoyed. I want others to love it too.
Amanda Hickey purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Amanda Hickey chose Calan Porter
Our reasons for buying this apartment where varied, one being previously owning a villa with large grounds and a garden which needed maintenance. The villa did not have the view that the apartment offers and having stayed in a friends apartment in the same block it occurred to me that this was a better option, No gardening and a great view! The location has everything you need so was ideal. Calan Porter caters for children and adults as well as teenagers. It is with-in easy access of the airport, the beach and not too far from the main capital.
What makes this Apartment unique
You will have the benefit of a spacious private double story accommodation with beautiful views where you can get away from it all. Falling asleep in a comfortable bed to the sound of the sea waves can be the most relaxing way to unwind. Many rental properties do not offer the use of a washing machine but when you are away for some weeks it can be very useful if you want to keep the packing to a minimum. It is a real home from home as my previous guests have stated in their reviews. Save money by not having to rent beach sunbeds or buy beach umbrellas as they are supplied at my house, 3 beach beds and plenty of beach toys in the trunk, snorkeling masks, an inflatable boat, flippers, games etc all supplied. If you are rained in there are plenty of books, games and Sky TV as well as DVDs to keep you occupied. It also has the best view from the upstairs sun lounge to watch the electric storms which are pretty spectacular.

We loved it!
We were a group of 6 friends and we had a wonderful time at Amanda's! The views are stunning as you can see in the pictures. However we all agreed that the pictures actually don't do it justice: it is much bigger and cosy than what it looks like.
As soon as you step in, you quickly notice this is not just a house: it feels more like a home. It has all the facilities, kitchen utensils and appliances you would have in your house if not more. This was important for us as we cooked quite a lot. The terrace is mesmerising, you really need to make an effort to get out the house and do sightseeing.
Amanda was very helpful and nice. She provided a lot of information about the house and the island (a lot) and responded quickly when we needed. We would definitely choose this place to stay again. Thank you Amanda.

Central position fantastic views, home from home
The property is very comfortable and positioned centrally in Cala 'n Porter, close to shops and beach. The apartment certainly has the wow factor of the beach, bay and magnificent views from either verandah. It truly is a home from home with many added extras for tenants' comfort, including use of a bbq, fully fitted kitchen and wonderful seating areas throughout to soak up the view and watch the world go by. We had an amazing relaxing holiday and felt fitter at the end of our stay after coping with the number of steps to the road and/or to the beach. The owner couldn't have been more helpful with clear, concise instructions when we arrived and before departure. We can highly recommend this property and look forward to our return!
Fabulous Darling !!!!
I was greeted at the airport by the lovely Amanda who whisked me off to what I can only descibke as a beautiful, traditional Spanish home. Amanda showed me to my lovely double en-suite room , which had a real Spanish feeling to it. My room was light, airy and has plenty of storage. My bathroom had a great powerful shower and plenty of hot water. As soon as I had unpacked, I sat and took in the spectacular views from the terrace. Wow I could look at the view and never get bored with it. I soon felt at home, there is everything you could possibly need and more in the apartment. Amanda and I chatted for a while and I could feel myself unwinding and feeling relaxed. The resort itself is fantastic, everybody is so friendly and happy. This was perfect for me as a lone traveler for the first time. The beach which you can see from the. Terrace has a real wow factor, with a couple of places to eat ‘The Rustic’ being my absolute favorite. I would head back to the apartment after the beach, after a hot shower I would sit on the terrace sipping the odd drink. Cooking is not a problem, you’ll find everything you need in the well equipped kitchen. I ate out a couple of nights with my Host Amanda, who has become a true friend I might add. She showed me the best places to eat and drink. The Aloha Cocktail Bar was not only friendly but the cocktails they serve are delicious. If you fancy a night in watching a movie, that’s no problem either. There’s Sky TV and ample dvds to choose from. Everybody made me feel very welcome from start to a very sad end. All that remains to be said is “Adios, until next year” Tracey
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Amanda's apartment... A very clean, spacious, comfortable apartment fully equipped with every thing you would need, a real home from home.
The view from the balcony was absolutely breathtaking.
The location was perfect, just a short walk to the great restaurants, bars, supermarkets and the beautiful sandy beach.
Amanda was really friendly and helpful from the start, nothing was ever too much trouble and always very quick to respond to any questions we had, she also supplied a very useful introduction pack.
We would highly recommend Amanda's apartment and will definitely be back!!!
Thanks so much Bobbie. So glad you enjoyed staying and you are welcome back anytime
We had a fantastic stay here! Home from home! The views are amazing, very clean apartment, plenty of space, everything you needed in the kitchen and more! Beds very comfortable, you just couldn't ask for me! Amanda was brilliant, so friendly and helpful, any questions she gets back to you straight away, highly recommend this apartment, we will be back!
Acantilado was just the best place we have ever stayed in and we have holidayed a lot. It was beautifully furnished and every detail had been thought about. I could not recommend it highly enough. All of the beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen was fitted out so well we could have entertained for 20!! The views from the two balconies were stunning. In the end we only ate out twice as we felt the views from our balcony were second to none! We only went out to enjoy the town when the light had faded. So I would sum it up:
STUNNING ...... BEAUTIFUL........PEACEFUL............ just PERFECT!!
Calan Porter beach can be seen from the balcony and is approx 10 minutes walk from the apartment. There are steps down to the beach or by car 3-4 minutes. The sand is soft and fine and there are sunbeds for hire as well as pedalos for the adventurous. It also has 2 beach bars serving fantastic local Tapas, snacks, drinks and ice creams for the children. A life guard is usually on hand for your added safety.
The airport of Mahon is 15-20 minutes away by car or taxis can be found outside of the airport. Car hire is recommended for ease of travel round the island. If you arrive by ferry into the port Mahon it would take approx 30 minutes by car to the apartment.
Being a small island nowhere is very far, but from the apartment the local village is 5 -10 minute walk. The capital is Mahon with a spectacular port well worth visiting is 30 mins by car/taxi. There are many places of interest on the island but Monte Torro is a must 40 min, fantastic views around the whole island from the summit with a cafe and a beautiful chapel. Cuidadella is the original capital across the other side of the island full of history and lovely shops and cafes approx 45 mins.
Calan Porter has all you would need to have a great holiday with the bars, shops, restaurants and supermarkets. It also has cash points for access to money and a Bureau de Change should you need. It also has what must be one of the most unique and beautiful settings for a night club called the Cova Den Xoroi overlooking the sea with open air dance floors and chill out lounge, a must for all those night owls, but once again due to the location this is not suitable for people with mobility problems. Menorca offers many leisure activities such as golf, water sports, hiking, as well as just relaxing on one of it's many beaches.
