Holiday Villa to Rent in Mallorca - Casa La Hiedra
This three-bedroom holiday villa to rent in Mallorca is conveniently located in the countryside, halfway between Pollensa town and its port. Within a few minutes’ drive of Pollensa, Alcudia, and the beach, you’ll love this inviting Mallorca villa. Though conveniently located, you’ll have plenty of privacy, including your own wonderfully secluded pool. Along with the ancient town of Pollensa near this private villa in Mallorca, you’ll also want to take advantage of walks in the hills (take a map!), where you’ll have wonderful views of the bay. Down on the seafront, you can enjoy warm, shallow waters (perfect for families with children) and hotels that still retain an air of the 1920’s, from when tourists first started frequenting the area. If you’re interested in the historical element of the island, there are also several small museums in the area.
This stone-finished country house sports covered porches and columns lusciously overgrown with vines and greenery. You’ll have patio furniture for lounging or dining at both the front and back of the house; at the back, you also have a fixed barbeque and a counter with a sink on the end for outdoor food preparation. The beautiful private swimming pool (8m x 4m, 1.1-2.2m deep) is surrounded by grass and patio, completely bordered by bushes and trees (palm, pine, oak) for maximum privacy. Roman steps descend into clear blue water.
Ground Floor: A covered porch provides the entryway to this house, where inside you’ll find a living/dining room with couch and chairs before an exposed stone wall with fireplace. The dining table seats six. A simple independent kitchen is equipped with the basics: oven, stove, microwave, and refrigerator. There is also a laundry room with a washing machine. The ground floor bedroom has a double bed and an adjacent bathroom with sink, toilet, and tub with handheld shower-head.
First Floor: Up a flight of stairs you’ll find two more bedrooms: one contains two 80 cm twin-beds (these can be joined to form a queen-sized bed upon request), while the other has a double bed. They share a full bathroom with sink, toilet, and tub with handheld shower-head.
Arrive & Relax: Stocked with enough food to get your group through Saturday night and Sunday, this property allows you to show up, drop your bags, and settle in without a hassle. No searching for a grocery store after that long flight, and no worrying about Sunday store closures. You can deal with the details later... after a meal and a good nights' sleep! Arrive & Relax provisions include:
* Water (2 bottles), apple juice, milk, tea, coffee, 1 bottle of red wine (mallorquin), 6 beers or 1 bottle of white wine, coca cola / fanta
* sugar, salt and pepper, olive oil and vinegar
* 1 loaf of sliced bread, margarine, jam
* 8 yogurts (4 natural and 4 fruit flavor), 6 eggs, cornflakes, seasonal fruit

The location of the house was A+. The customer service from Rentvillas and from the local management company was A+ all the way around. I highly recommend a visit to Mallorca to anyone, especially during the tip of the start of the season. The house itself is probably a B, but the local agent and owner seem to be open to suggestions for improvements.
The location! Absolutely beautiful grounds. Wonderful Welcome Basket with food and other items. Loved the bath towels. The local agent - very, very helpful. Great bathroom upstairs. Valuable House Book with all kinds of information. Outside grill - loved it!
The power kept going out, especially during the storm. We weren't prepared to be cold, but we were. Mattresses need to be replaced. Need more lighting. The English channel signal of the Satellite TV seemed to go off by about 500pm.
My favorite things on the island: I loved downtown Pollenca. Small and just right. Sunday market was amazing. Fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, flowers. Absolutely beautiful. We didn't get to see the whole island, but we loved it there. We drove to Fornalutx on my birthday weekend, did a festival in Soller, spent a day in Palma. Went to Port de Pollenca and Alcudia several times. Formentor Beach was amazing and I found my treasured sea glass there. There were bicyclist all over and we were amazed by how they made it up those northern mountains in teams or solo.
