Our stay in villa 'Galleria Jardin' was brilliant. The accommodation is very clean, well equipped and in a great location.Although the pool is supposed to be a communal pool it was more like our own private pool as it is so close to the villa and gardens.
We used the villa as a base to explore the island on most days, and the days we didn't we chilled on the sun loungers on the private patio area.
Anne and Ted are very friendly and helpful. They were great in giving us advice on the best things to see and which routes to use too. They even let us leave our cases in there own home so we didn't have to worry about leaving them in our car on our departure day.
We will definitely be going back.
Agree with previous reviews completely. This is a gem of a property, situated in a lovely, quiet residential complex. The owners, Anne and Ted, were very helpful, but not at all intrusive. Ted was there to meet us at the airport (20 Euros) as we decided not to bother with a car. He also took us for no extra cost into Playa Blanca town, where we stayed for our second week. If you just want to relax without touring the Island, you definitely won't need a car, as everything is within a 5 minute walk of the house - restaurants, bars, shops. There's no beach at Faro Park though, but the ones in Playa Blanca are easily accessible by public transport or alternatively, a long walk around the beautiful coastal path. This location is perfect for a couple who want to get away from it all, and you can be as lazy or as active as you wish. The private patio is a real sun trap too, facing south and getting the sun all day, if you like the laziness option. This was our favourite way to pass the time. Next visit though, will probably hire cycles, as it'd be a great way to get around the area. We will definitely return!
This is a great one bedroom mezzanine villa.
On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Anne and Ted, followed by a mini tour of villa and amenities within it.
A fully equipped kitchen with many extras.
Bathroom has many towels and and a fabulous pile of beach towels under sink in a basket to use at your leisure. The bathroom had masses of sun lotions, after suns, shower cremes, shampoos that we could use should we wish to or if we ran out.
The living area is comfortable with fabulous Internet TV and very good broadband. Although I personally couldn't use it outside of villa in the garden or upstairs. But that was my problem.
The bedroom was much bigger than expected with good wardrobe space, bedside units and very comfortable beds. With the added bonus of having permanent fly screens you could have the windows open all night for air. Even mats at side of bed were comforting instead of straight from bed to cold tiled floor :)
Overall the villa and owners were most welcoming and with the use of the communal pool it was a very lovely stay.
Thank you Anne and Ted for a great stay.
Beautiful little house with the best equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a holiday let. And such comfortable beds. Ann and Ted could not have been more helpful and friendly without being intrusive, even when I ran over some of their plants - not used to manual gears! Garden is very beautiful.. It was windy when we were there but the terrace is very private and is a sheltered sun trap. The shops and restaurants of Calle Irlanda are close by as is the bus stop - 5-10 minute stroll. The number 30 bus runs twice an hour like clockwork and is very cheap. We had a car but you could manage perfectly well without one. Faro Park is one of the best laid out estates I have seen in the Canaries. It has been there maybe 10(?) years and the gardens are maturing. This is a great spot to relax
We are reluctant to say too many good things about this cottage as it will be booked up when we want to come back.
We have spent 3 weeks here and we echo the previous reviews
The only slight warning we would make is to say that as the bathroom is on the ground floor and the bedroom is upstairs, this property may not suit those who have difficulty negotiating stairs , (especially the middle of the night).
We have enjoyed our stay, we hope to return next year and have no hesitation in recommending this property
