Quote of the week – 46 Casa Mimosa

And then suddenly it was there… the house. Maybe not as we had imagined it to us, but even better. And when we saw it we knew it both right. And then it can go fast.


Last Saturday a sms, an agent that we approached earlier with the newspaper. Twice before we had the house she showed just not what we were looking for us. Again we explained to her what we were looking. A house in the campo (inland) with a garden / land and a minimum of two bedrooms. Often we were told that was what everyone was looking for… But it would still come. With patience.

That same Monday we could house, not in the campo but all was right in the reasonable sized town of Jesus, see. Right behind the main street, between what senior apartment complexes there was a small, typische Spaanse estate, with the beautiful name Home (or Cana in Catalan) Mimosa, named after a beautiful yellow flower. Google once again. Completely repainted, with around a huge garden. Bigger than we could ever wish for in Netherlands. A large porch with round arches, barn which can be transformed as a studio, a staircase to the roof with the surface of the house. Inside a spacious living room with fireplace, two bedrooms, a dining room that can be converted into a third bedroom sporadically and a simple but large kitchen with huge storage cupboards. In Short; everything and more than we were looking for. Because also within walking distance of a good breakfast in the morning, several restaurants for lunch and dinner, a butcher, barber, bank, interior design shop, post office…closer to the beach than we could have imagined. Who knows the island also knows that Jesus, is only a hefty walk from the magical Dalt Villa in Ibiza Town. We can say: we are happy! Very happy.

For now a picture of the front. Later more photos, because the whole palace has yet to be fully furnished. A job to my heart.


Love from Ibiza!

Hotspot – Can Guimo Ibiza


Looking for good, honest and healthy eating in Ibiza? Then you have come to the right place Can Guimo. A (h)fair hotspot with fresh products, original cuisine and healthy juices.

You could almost miss it, because hotspot Can Guimo sits on the busy road between Eivissa (the capital of Ibiza) San Juan. For San Lorenzo find on the right side next to the small restaurant with local tobacco shop that also serves as a post office(tje). Take a seat at one of the small tables outside, the town on side or inside if you want to have less burden of traffic.

The menu offers everything and anything. Just what is available and within the season. Great sandwiches (Toast's) with salmon and mozzarella, changing quiches, salads with quinoa, chicken or pumpkin, big bocadillo's (sandwiches) and of course fresh homemade cakes. To be able to finger-licking. Nice about this thing the lovely people, fine simple design and the fact that there are all kinds of nationalities. Without fuss. In… it's quite affordable. So go!

Address: San Juan road km14, Ibiza, Balearic Islands, Spain +34 971 32 51 16
