‘Casa Ginebra’ is a very comfortable two-bedroom, two-bathroom private apartment, situated in a secluded complex with a 26-metre swimming pool and manicured gardens.
It is a 15-minute stroll to the coast at Delta, 20 to Cala Vella, a popular spot for scuba diving, swimming and snorkelling.
Your bedroom is the silver master bedroom suite, the other photos are for information only. You will normally share the apartment with the host only, but your suite is completely private, of course.
The apartment has a south-facing terrace, accessible from the living room. Beds, mattresses, Egyptian cotton bedlinen and towels were all brand new in late 2016.
Your private en-suite boutique-style room includes a dressing room and large bathroom, with powerful shower and bath with jets. The bedroom is dominated by a Superking size bed and has a south-facing 'Juliet balcony'. Shutters can be left open or closed, with black-out lined curtains ensuring plenty of darkness in the morning. There is a tower fan in the room, as well as a fan heater for chillier times of the year. The apartment also has air-conditioning throughout.
Slippers and bathrobes are provided, to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. Hairdryer and essential toiletries are here, but if you have any special advance requests, just ask.
Unlike most private rentals on Mallorca, the apartment is the owners’ main home and is furnished to a high standard. Superfast broadband and Wi-Fi access are included, as is the use of a laptop computer.
There is a working fireplace and there are heaters in each room -- including the bathrooms -- for use during cold spells. You are welcome to use the fully-equipped kitchen and help yourself to condiments, cooking oils and spices, should you want to cook during your stay. There is a washing machine and a tumble dryer, so you are welcome to do some laundry during your stay.
As it is my main home, I will be on hand to welcome you on arrival and help you settle in. With your own keys, you will be free to come and go as you please, of course, though someone is likely to be there throughout your stay.
*** PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for a double room only, not for the entire apartment. Ordinarily you will be sharing the apartment with me, but NEVER with other paying guests. If you are interested in renting the entire apartment, by all means feel free to ask, but clearly this would not be at the same price. Thanks. ***
Families with older children are welcome, though the apartment is unsuitable for under-12s. Please don't ask to bring younger children or babies, as furnishings and decor are mostly new, the terrace balustrade is not child-safe and there are toxic cleaning products in easy reach of toddlers.
Smoking, including vaping/e-cigarettes, is only permitted on the outside terrace.
If you would prefer to have the smaller, twin-bedded room, this should be possible, but *please ask before booking*. The time required to prepare the room for guests is longer than for the main guest room, so I need to ensure that have enough time between visitors. The rate is the same.
- Please do not help yourself to coffee capsules, even if you offer to pay for them. They are a brand not available in Mallorca, so are hard for me to replace. You are welcome to bring your own, of course; the type is 'A Modo Mio', by Lavazza. Cafetieres and bialetti coffee makers are here for you to use.
Please don't drape towels or clothes over the balustrade either in your bedroom or the main terrace, as the community rules forbid it. There is a large clothes drying rack on the terrace for this purpose.
Most house rules are simple common sense to most civilised people, but it seems I should have spelled them out for some recent visitors, so here goes...
- Guests are expected to dress appropriately at all times in shared spaces in the apartment. I want you to feel at home, but I have to feel at home too. Walking and sitting around in underwear (or less) is not acceptable and I won't scare you by doing the same!
- If you intend to bring equipment such as game consoles to be plugged into TVs in the apartment, please don't. If in doubt, please ask in advance.
- By all means bring a bluetooth music speaker, though there is one in the bedroom. There are also two Amazon Echos in the apartment; one in the kitchen and one in the living room, which is connected to the hi-fi. These are to remain where they are and there should be no need to unplug them to be located outside or elsewhere. You are welcome to use your own device to connect to them and play your music, or to use the linked Spotify/Amazon Prime music accounts. Just please be considerate to my neighbours while I'm out; I have to continue to live beside them after you leave :)
