Haven On Earth, a family run business, brings you an extensive choice of villas and apartments for sale and holiday rental in beautiful unspoilt Catalunya in Spain, Mallorca, Ibiza, the idyllic Greek island of Poros in the Saronic gulf, from the Algarve to Lisbon in Portugal and Tuscany in Italy.
The company was set up in 2001 and operated from an office in Hampton until 2010, when the founder, Sheila Yelland, decided to move the office to Walton Road, East Molesey, near Hampton Court. Although primarily an internet-based business, the new offices are attracting much attention in the local area, adding to their presence in the holiday marketplace.
Catalunya - Having discovered this area holidaying with family and friends in 2001, it took no time to realise the charm of the region, the fabulous Catalan cuisine and of course the local wines. We couldn’t wait to return! The absence of high-rise buildings and mass tourism is very evident and with many of the holiday property owners being Barcelonians, a truly Spanish ambience prevails with many Spanish owners, enjoying their holidays here.
On our first trip to Begur we were enchanted with the town, the countryside, the superb local beaches, especially Sa Riera with its excellent fish restaurant .The nearby coastal villages of Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc and Tamariu. Each resort has waterfront restaurants and promenade and individual charm which is hard to beat ; deciding which beach to visit can be difficult with such a wonderful choice. Girona is a beautiful old city divided by the river Onyar, and is just 45 minute's drive from Begur. Often known as ‘mini-Barcelona’ with its Ramblas, you can enjoy the cafes, restaurants and shops without the stress of a large city. However, if like many, you crave big city life, an hour and a half will take you to Barcelona, reportedly currently more popular than Paris! Haven On Earth can book accommodation for you on the famous Ramblas in serviced apartments and if you do not want to drive into Barcelona you can take the train from Flaca (20mins from Begur) into Girona or Barcelona.
This is an area of diversity and each day an adventure of discovery.
As a result of our first holiday in Begur, when we rented a villa, we decided to invest in a holiday home which we rent out through the website. Haven On Earth now owns several properties in Begur and Poros, Greece, which has given us a wealth of experience in many aspects of purchasing, such as buying from a developer off-plan, purchasing a plot of land and directly instructing local builders and investing in established villas. This activity has developed into a business and as a result we are well equipped to offer advice to would-be owners and have already helped many clients and friends to buy here.
Spain - Mallorca
Mallorca is the ideal holiday destination and we specialise in the north of the Island, mainly Pollensa and the surrounding area. We have rental accommodation to suit all holiday needs from idyllic farmhouses to modern luxury villas for rent and seaside apartments.
Villas in Mallorca offer extensive and mature gardens that have been perfectly maintained. Holidays here will delight the whole family; we have a range of child friendly villas with games rooms, private pools and various extras such as cots, highchairs etc. catering for the needs of the whole family.
The traditional rental villas in Pollensa have been sympathetically restored and maintained by the owners, and in many cases have been owned by the same families for generations. Such care adds to the reason why Mallorca villas make such fantastic holiday accommodation for any family. As well as the traditional fincas and farmhouses to rent, there are the more modern luxury villas that have been built around Pollensa. Whatever your taste or budget there is something to suit everyone, including contemporary apartments for rent in Puerto Pollensa just a short stroll from the harbour and beachside restaurants and shops. The fabulous and well-known pine walk in Puerto Pollensa also offers some fabulous beachside apartments and townhouses to rent.
Haven on Earth has personally inspected many of the rental villas in Mallorca and we understand how important your holiday is to you. We have chosen the north of the island surrounding Pollensa as it complements the other regions that we offer on our website, as well as it making the perfect holiday destination for our clients. Our holiday rentals in Mallorca range from high spec villas with private pools to more basic accommodation that focuses on location rather than facilities.
Spain - Ibiza
Ibiza was added to our portfolio of destinations in 2014. This magical island is popular with people looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life and discover something truly special. This diverse island offers everything one could want... from incredible gastronomy and buzzing nightlife to an array of idyllic beaches and stunning countryside. There is little wonder that this island is favoured by the rich and famous, it offers everything that even the most discerning of travel makers could require.
There is far more to Ibiza than the clubbing capital of the world. Forget the Brits abroad version of Ibiza which discourages holidaymakers looking for a relaxing getaway with culture and style. This party scene only applies to a very small part to the west of the island known as San Antonio, leaving Eivissa, the old town on the South-East coast, relatively unspoilt. Discount the San Antonio area and it’s heaving strip and you will discover a hidden Ibiza that really does have it all.
Haven on Earth focus on the unspoilt areas of this beautiful island which retain their Ibizan charm and identity. We have a wide range of villas individually chosen to fit our clients requirements and provide you with the perfect home-from-home in Ibiza. Our villas range across the board from small rustic fincas to large contemporary villas with all the modern conveniences and tailored luxuries that you could ask for.
Portugal - Algarve
Haven On Earth have been renting villas and apartments in the Algarve since 2005 building up an extensive range of villas with private pools in and around the prestigious resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago. This area in the Algarve is so popular with clients returning year after year for the many days of sunshine, superb food, sandy beaches and excellent facilities.
There is a wide range of self-catering accommodation available in Vale do Lobo from small 2-bedroom apartments to 5-bedroom luxury villas with pirvate pools. If you are not sure what accommodation is right for you then send us as email or even better give us a call and we can work together in finding you the right holiday solution for you.
Quinta do Lago is located a few minute's drive south east of Vale do Lobo and home to an equally impressive range of facilties including the exclusive San Lorenzo golf course and sought after Parque Atlantico hosting the most impressive villas in the country. We have villas in Spain, Greece, Portugal and Italy yet none come close to the level of comfort you can buy into within the Parque Atlantico development. If you want a villa holiday in this area and are seeking something a bit special get in touch and we can guide you through the best of our villas.
There are many places to stay offering different levels of luxury in this area so why not send us an email or call us to discuss your holiday requirements and we can find you the best villa for your family or friends.
Haven On Earth`s website attracts more holidaymakers each year who travel from many parts of the world to experience this region and as a result property owners use our website to attract holidaymakers to their villas and apartments. Every year we have an increasing number of returning holidaymakers booking their villa holiday with us.
Should you decide to buy in this region either as a buy-to-let investor or purely for your own enjoyment Haven On Earth can help you.
Prior to your visit we will research properties for sale which fit as closely as possible to your criteria. We can meet you in Spain and arrange accompanied viewings. Should you decide to buy we can guide you through the process and also introduce you to banks offering mortgage facilities.
If you are interested in having an income from your holiday home Haven On Earth can market your villa or apartment on their website and handle all the bookings for you. Having many contacts in the area we can advise on local management including cleaning, laundry, repairs, garden and pool maintenance. Local management of your property is one of the most important aspects of letting to holidaymakers. You will want to know that your guests are enjoying their time staying in your home and that it is being carefully looked after in your absence. There will be many out of season weeks available for you to enjoy your holiday home, knowing that all your expenses are paid from the rental income achieved during 10-20 weeks of the year (if you invest wisely!) Of course if you decide to take your holidays in the peak season you will miss out on the highest rental income, but this is always your choice.
