“A beautiful villa, with welcoming owners.”

My parents rented this villa for our family to have a holiday together in October. In total there were seven adults and two children (aged 2 and 5.)

The villa itself is beautiful and clean with plenty of space. Every couple was able to have their own bedroom, and my two kids were able to share a room next door to ours.

The kitchen is huge, with a table and chairs, as well as a television and two sofas. There is a fridge/freezer which has plenty of space. The kitchen also has a dishwasher, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, stove top, and a small oven/grill for cooking pizzas and fish fingers etc. You're not meant to drink the tap water, so we always had large bottles in the kitchen for drinking and for using when brushing our teeth (this might have been excessive but we weren't sure exactly how safe or unsafe the water was.) The owners, Pedro and Elizabeth had provided us with a large jug of water at the start, and a frozen pizza in the freezer in case we hadn't had any food, which we thought was very kind of them. We also found a variety of spices and seasonings, along with salt, pepper and sugar, and tea and coffee.

The main part of the house also has wi-fi.

The swimming pool was large, and clean, although a bit cold for most of us, however the owner has been researching ways to warm it up and is planning on having that sorted out soon. There is an outdoor shower, and a pool room with a sink, toilet and washing machine (no dryer.)

The outdoor BBQ area is lovely, and a great place for large groups to sit in the evening whilst cooking steaks or chicken on the BBQ. The table is enormous and the view of the nearby town of Aguimes is stunning, especially with the church lit up at night (my two year old son loved this.)

There were two bedrooms on the main level as you enter the property, one with en-suite and one without, each had one double bed. There is also a bathroom with shower just off the kitchen which can be used by whoever is in the room without the en-suite. The rest of the bedrooms are up a set of stairs which runs along the outside of the house, leading up to a stunning rooftop courtyard with a lovely little fountain, and lots of mature trees. Up there we had three bedrooms; the purple room, the yellow room, and the green room.

The green room was where we put our two children and barricaded the en-suite door so that the two year old didn't get up to any mischief. There was a double bed and a small single bed in the room.

The yellow room was a bit dark due to there not being many windows - only one small window way up high, but it had two double beds in it, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. The room also had a wardrobe with hangers to put your clothes away.

The purple bedroom was lovely, it had two double beds, each in it's own "separate" room (There was only a door sized gap between the rooms, but no door that you could close to complete the separation - same with the bathroom!) The bathroom was huge and very nice, complete with a bathtub with a shower head, two sinks, a toilet and a bidet.

Also on the upper level there was a very large living room type area, with a very comfortable sofa, a table with a few chairs, a fireplace, and toy play area for kids.

Between the 9 of us, we had two rental cars which we picked up from the airport (only about 10 minutes away from the house) and we found that we had to drive most places because of the heat and the kids, although one day we did hike down the hillside into the valley below the house, and across into the town of Aguimes, which was lovely. For the most part we used the house as a base and traveled to various places on the island.

My only two somewhat negative notes about our stay were that a few of the nights we were woken very early due to dogs in the valley barking quite loudly, although this could not be helped by the owners, so we can't fault them on that, it's just worth noting for future guests who might not be very heavy sleepers - possibly keep some earplugs on hand!

The other thing that I feel I should mention is for those of you who have very young children, the house is right on the edge of a steep valley with some very dangerous drops on the other side of the fence. Most of the fencing is quite sturdy, but there is one area near the fruit trees and BBQ area, that just didn't seem safe enough and I had to keep a very close eye on my two year old son whenever he was wandering around that area.

Overall our experience was fantastic, and if we ever decide to visit Gran Canaria again, we would gladly stay at this villa.
