“We loved Pat's house. It's on an amazing location from where you can reach lots of beautiful beaches. Pat is a fantastic host and the house has lots of fabulous spots and amazing interior design style, full furnished. The beds are really comfortable and Menorca is an Island to deeply discover.. highly recommended! Thanks a lot.. Barbara and Leonardo”
“Let me start by saying that I can not say enough about Pat, who has to be the most lovely, engaged, helpful, communicative, funny, and interesting LHS host, period! The condo is beautifully decorated, with a lovely outdoor dining/living terrace, overlooking spectacular Mediterranean views perched high up on the cliffs. We had an amazing time exploring the beautiful island, by car and boat, and would very much recommend this swap. ”
“I've swapped quite a few times. My swap at Pat's gorgeous house on Menorca was an absolute favorite! I went with my two sisters who, new to Love Home Swap and the idea of house-swapping more generally, couldn't believe it was real. The house is stunning, beautifully decorated and situated right on the ocean. Needless to say, the views are breathtaking. Although we had originally planned to mostly eat out at night, we in fact liked the house so much that we opted to mostly stay in for dinner! Note that in October, when we went, Menorca is less touristy. It is a perfect time to visit. We had beaches almost to ourselves and the island was not crowded. We spend our days hiking, horseback riding and touring this little gem in the Mediterranian. Pat & Jean-Pierre were exceptional hosts. We arrived late and Pat's sister was kind enough to have bought us breakfast. I also hosted Pat and Jean-Pierre with friends and lovely teenage children at my house in Sweden and had time to have a drink with them. Really enjoyed their company and it feels like the start of a new friendship! ”
“This was the most incredible trip. The photos simply do not do justice to this paradise on earth. It is like a movie set. Pat and Jean-Pierre are amazing generous people who made our trip one of the best we have experienced anywhere in the world. Their home is stunning but yet comfortable and Pat's eye to detail is second to none. Spending siestas on the bedroom terrace on the oak daybed was the most relaxed I have ever been. I could not recommend this property enough. It is truly amazing. We cannot imagine anywhere we would rather be. Thank you Pat and Jean-Pierre for all your kind and thoughtful efforts to make our trip a memorable one. Stella and Geoff ”
“Right from the very start Pat could not have done anything more to help, nothing was too much trouble. The beautiful house is in an idyllic location with the most wonderful views. The house is so well furnished and very beautifully styled. Everything is clean and fresh it all appears to be brand new! The communal pool is also large and clean and like the whole property extremely well maintained. All the outside living areas - both private and communal are filled with beautiful plants and very well cared for. Pat and Jean-Pierre and Claudia were the perfect hosts and i would recommend this to anybody. We left feeling enthused and rejuvenated and hope to return. The only shame is that 5 is the most stars you can award.”
“Just a lovely lovely stay. Weather was gorgeous, house lovely and breezy. The views from the back of the house are just divine. Pat and her family clearly love this house and there are lots of lovely arty touches. She was also kind enough to leave a few thoughtful touches like a bucket and spade for our daughter too. We had an amazing stay and Menorca is our new favourite place!”
“We had a wonderful stay in Pat's home. It is located in a small beach-house community, on top of a cliff with amazing coastline and sea views. The house is decorated in beach style colours, with an eye for detail. We loved Pat's interior design. Pat's sister greeted us warmly and showed us around upon arrival. Some fresh fruits and other foods made us feel extra welcome. For the hiking lovers, Cami de Cavalls (pathway of the horses) is an ancient country path that winds around the entire coastline of Menorca. We hiked a few separate stages and it was beautiful. Our first swap was a great experience, especially because Pat was an amazing host. She is a wonderful, warm person with a great sense of humor and I consider her now a dear friend. Thanks a lot, I hope our paths may cross in person one day!”
“Minorca is amazing island and we spent terrific holidays there, the main reason was the fantastic Villa that Pat made available for us. Pat is perfect, very helpful and always reachable (very reactive), she is wonderful host that gave us a lot of nice insider tips on where to eat and she recommended unforgettable beaches. She arranged a warm hopitality by her sister with a nice welcome gift. This villa was in a great location, had loads of space inside and outside with stunning view and it was well-furnished with attention to the smallest details. I am real honored to know Pat and she let me feel her as a friend. Thanks Pat we'll meet soon. ”
“I normally don't write and when I do I don't do well so I avoid any writing. But Pat, Jean John Pierre , their daughter, Claudia and their home in Menorca will continue to haunt me forever if i don't write a review after once i met them and stay at their home.And they do haunt me and made me feel guilty almost every night when I go to bed or wake up in the morning. So now I must put an effort in to this writing. I did combined swap ,with their centrally located apartment in Barcelona and the home in Menorca. My girlfriend and I met Pat, Jean Pierre when they came to greet us at the apartment themselves with welcome basket filled with good wine, cheeses and other goodies. They were sincerely so warm, welcoming and helpful couple. While we were in Barcelona they invited us their home for a great dinner and great wine. They were the type of people that made you feel comfortable the minute you meet them. We got a chance to meet Claudia, their beautiful, polite and intelligent daughter as well. After 3 days in Barcelona we headed out to their other home in Menorca. Our flight to Menorca was at 7:30 am., Pat offered us a ride to the airport and came by at 5:30 am. Can you imagine this? She offered a ride to people whom she just met through home swap at this hour. She is certainly a rare find. Before we went to Menorca we didn't know what to expect but when we arrived it was just amazing feeling to be there. Anna, Pat's sister came to greet us with welcome basket filled with delicious items. Ana was such a sweet and helpful host. Thanks Ana. Jean Pierre and Pat's home is so beautifully decorated, it is so spacious, very comfortable and decorated as as you want a beach house to be doctorates; very personal, sunny and stylish. The location on a cliff over looking the sea was spectacular...and all just 15 minute drive from the airport! The outdoor terrace bed on the 1st floor and the board terrace on the ground floor were perfect restful places to enjoy the sun, quite landscape. The garden over looking the sea and the rocky coast; we never get enough of that panorama. Highlights included the sound of the wind in the palm trees, the crash of waves on the rocky shoreline and the Mesolithic remains to be found in front of the house. We also loved the big beautiful swimming pool; the quite beaches and the over all stay easy, not too touristic atmosphere at the island. At the end we hated to leave their home and the Island. It was a amazing experience to stay at their 2 properties and meet all of them. I can't forget to mention this; one of my girlfriends who planed to join me and other girlfriend I traveled with had to delay her trip so she got to Barcelona after we already left for Menorca, instead of my girlfriend spending two nights in a hotel before she could join us, Pat and Jean Pierre welcomed her to their home, picked her up from the airport, showed her around Barcelona and fed her for 2 full days, dropped her off at the airport without meeting her before... And when we returned from Menorca they came to pick us up from the airport again.....this I can never forget. Now you can understand why I said if I don't write this review the guilt will forever follow me. Pat, Jean Pierre, Ana and Claudia, we want to thank you for your warmth, kindness, caring and friendship you gave to us plus your beautiful properties. By the way when I returned to Barcelona very recently they invited me to crash their guest bedroom and took me out to many great meals and met their fun and friendly friends. Thank you Prem Wilson”
“Pat and Jean Pierre's House is a dream: in front of the sea. It is located in a very quiet community of neighbors (in this period we were practically alone) with beautiful gardens and a beautiful swimming pool with open sea views. The house is decorated with great taste, all in white wood with touches of blue, full of details and with beautiful paintings hung on the walls. It was wide and comfortable for the six of us. Ideally situated in a protected area without tourist mass, but only 15 minutes from the airport, near many beautiful beaches, 3 km from the gracious town of san Climent, where you can find everything you need, and 8 kilometres from the beautiful city and port of Mahon. Menorca is a wonderful island, a rare pearl in the Mediterranean and very little known among mass tourism. Pat has filled us with attentions, before, during and after our stay, worrying that everything was to our liking. Now the two families are already friends and we hope to repeat the experience many times more! I strongly advise this house to every lover of tranquility and good taste and this hosts to everybody who is receptive to the sense of friendship!”
“We spent a nice time in Menorca, the house is close to the airport and big city. Pat is a famous organizer with help for trips, and restaurants! The outdoor terrace with the bed after the master bedroom is the best place in the sun. The view to the sea is amazing, a dream. Pat's sister showed us around when we arrived, a good feeling to start your holiday :) ”
“Close your eyes and imagine the sounds of the waves, the gentle caress of the wind and warmth of the sunset over the sea...Well if you do go to Pat's house, you do not need to imagine nor close your eyes! We had the most amazing experience thanks to Pat. She is an amazing communicator and host, and made sure every details were perfect prior, during and after the swap. The house is like a dream and is set in a gorgeous part of the island. Everything is there to cater for your needs, and it is beautifully decorated. The Balinese bed situated on the balcony off the main bedroom is fantastic to lounge on and watch the sunset! The grounds are serene, and very well-kept. There is a pool which is overlooking the sea and have some shallow ends for toddlers. You are a very short drive from Mahon if you would like to go out to restaurants, shopping etc and you have picture perfects coves doted around all the East coast which could beat any Caribbean beaches. There is also some amazing walks on the GR that we thoroughly enjoyed. Menorca is a treasure so is Pat :) Thank you so much for everything and we cannot wait to come back!”
