About Us

The idea for Vida Villas came about after my family and I had been renting and staying in private holiday villas and apartments for many years. Like many of our guests who now come to stay in the properties we have listed on our site, we were lucky enough to go on holiday several times a year and quite often chose to stay in private villas or apartments. We travelled to many destinations in Europe at the time because we had small children, we tried France, Italy, Greece, the Spanish mainland then Ibiza and Menorca amongst other destinations, eventually when our children were starting school we found our favourite spot that was Pollença nestled in the North East corner of Mallorca in the Balearic Islands.

We continued to take holidays in private rental villas in Pollença until one day in 2006 we decided to take the plunge and buy our first property on Mallorca for a holiday home. We were feeling brave so we decided to buy a run down town house in the historic quarter of Pollensa. Six months after the purchase we decided to sell our UK businesses and home and moved full time to Pollença, Mallorca to start a new life. We never managed to take a holiday in our new holiday home but many other lucky people did and thoroughly enjoyed it, the property is still available to rent now and continues to be a favourite with our clients. We purchased, refurbished and rented several other properties of our own which together with our experience renting properties for holidays gave us a further understanding of exactly what people wanted when they rented a private villa.

We enjoyed good success in renting our properties   and after speaking with friends and acquaintances who owned properties locally, we found many were looking for someone reliable to manage the rentals for them. In 2012 we decided to set up Vida Villas and rent Mallorca Villas and we now manage a selection of properties that we have direct relationships with the owners. Many are private holiday homes for the owners and as such have been very lovingly restored and decorated tastefully, furthermore they have been fitted out to ensure a comfortable and relaxing environment for a well earned break.

We are continuing to expand our programme and we are adding new villas and destinations each season. We have employed people with similar experience of villas and the destinations that we offer. We are planning to offer new destinations each season and are constantly reviewing options and properties that will fit in with the profile of accommodation that we offer.

We think it can make a world of difference to stay in holiday accommodation that is also someone´s home, it creates a more intimate and essentially more homely experience. Please browse through our selection of properties and drop us a line through one of the contact boxes should you want further information about our villas. Our reservations staff have visited many of the properties on offer and if they do not know it personally then we have someone in resort that will know it and be able to answer your questions. I personally have visited a large number of properties that we offer and I am always available to offer any further insights into helping our guests (or potential guests) make an informed choice.
