I want to say never, but It is rare that I have been on holiday and found my hotel, apartment, house or whatever to genuinely exceed all my expectations ... until now! This place it better than the pictures, better than the descriptions and the hospitality, communication and friendly way the owners look after you is incredible!
Just 10 mins drive from the airport you find yourself in a quiet residential street where this perfect holiday home is situated. 5 mins and you can walk to a great surfing beach. 12 mins walk in another direction and there is a great beach for laying out and a beautiful warm sea to play in. There are plenty of restaurants here too. A massive supermarket is 10 mins away with local ones open all the time just 5 mins drive. Las palmas is 35 mins drive north and Maspalomas 40 mins drive south. If you want to see the whole island then drive to the centre of the island, to the very top, and enjoy the views. Its not far but takes an hour in the car as the roads are small and lots of bends but still great fun.
If you are going to Gran Canaria I can't imagine why you would stay anywhere else!
The house is perfect, with every modern facility you can imagine. David's parents, met us on arrival and along with a few groceries, we had requested, provided a welcoming meal of tortilla with bruschettas, and a bottle of white wine.
The house is a short drive from the airport, with supermarkets and a pharmacy close by.
Like previous guests we gravitated to the cabin. We took all our meals there and enjoyed the superb views, both day and night, particularly at dawn as the sun rose over the horizon.
Nearby, the cafes and restaurants at Melenara are well worth a visit. Las Palmas, 20 minutes and Maspalomas, 30 minutes are easily reached via the motorway. We thoroughly enjoyed a visit to the botanical gardens of the Jardin Canario.
A marvellous house, looking forward to returning!
The house is exceptionally well presented with everything to make for a relaxing holiday The small beach is within walking distance with a larger beach with cafes and restaurants a short drive away The cabin is a real bonus We had breakfast there each morning It was rather windy during our stay so we did not make use of the pool
The welcome we received from David' s parents was warm and friendly The food and wine on arrival was a nice touch As we live in a bungalow we did find the stairs a bit of a challenge but these are fine as long as you do not have poor mobility It is useful to have car but taxis are a good reasonably priced alternative
Big, clean villa with huge terrace, cozy cabin, nice pool, view to the ocean. Three beaches very close to the house, supermarket on walking distance, good location. Very hospitable hosts.
Thank you David!
Perfect, quiet location. Very friendly owners. Lovely beach-7 min walking distance.
