Fantastic location, great space

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect holiday. Great weather, balcony to view the beach, waves crashing at night, and literal steps from laying out on the sand. The apartment is beautiful and has everything you need. It's within walking distance of markets and buses. Tons to see around the area and a bus or long walk along the coast to the old town. Relaxing and comfortable, I couldn't ask for a better escape.

Marta is amazing. She is a great host, met me at midnight when my flight arrived. Provided restaurant recommendations, provided directions to cash exchange and markets, notes sights and provided a map, and let me store luggage on check out day. She's the best and so kind. One of the best hosts I've experienced thus far. When I come back, I'll definitely want to stay again!

The apartment is in a great area. Everything you need is in walking distance and the view from the balcony is amazing. The apartment is very well equipped and very clean. Marta was so nice and so helpful, will definitely be back.

Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely apartment. Very spacious with a great view looking over the beach out to sea. Marta was there to welcome us and left us some goodies on arrival which was very nice.Our only criticism was that unfortunately the first 3 days were wet and cold and so was the apartment. No heating or air conditioning and the balcony did not receive the sun even when it was hot. I realise that most of the year this would not be a problem but we were unlucky with the weather.

Perfect Location. Lovely Host. Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Farfalla far exceeded our expectations. Marta was the perfect host - she was very helpful with suggestions and tips on exploring our neighbourhood, and the whole island, including great restaurants and places to see. She was very kind and responsive. (we miss her already!)

The apartment is situated right in the heart of the boardwalk, steps from the beach, with a great view from the balcony of the sea. We walked the beach and/or the boardwalk daily. My husband swam the length of the bay almost every day at low tide and we both enjoyed snorkeling - like swimming in a fish tank, so clear and beautiful! The internet is great, the bed was comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed, although we spent most evenings enjoying the many restaurants in the area.

This is the perfect spot to stay to enjoy Las Palmas and a great home base for exploring the whole island. You can rent a car across the street, as needed. We took several day trips and saw much of the island.

Marta made our stay in Gran Canaria very memorable. We hope to return soon!

Excellent location, all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Marta made sure our stay was a great experience by being available to give entertainment and restaurant recommendations to making sure the apartment was well stocked with everything we could need including her mothers home made muffins. The pictures on VRBO for the apartment didn't do the place justice as we were pleasantly surprised with the balcony and view. We were in the centre of the boardwalk and the Italian Restaurant across the lane was very good. Thank you for your hospitality Marta.

Mitten im Geschehen, alles in Fußreichweite, von Autovermietung, Bars, Busstation, Supermärkte, Strand, Surfschulen.... Dazu mit Marta eine großartige Gastgeberin, die falls nötig jederzeit verfügbar ist.
