About Matthew Kearney

I live in Ireland with my wife,we have been married since 1981 and have 1 son and 1 beautiful grandson.

We have been to Gran Canaria many times over the years since our honeymoon, we just fell in love with the island and the people are so friendly.

Reason for buying in Playa Del Cura: The view is breathtaking.We went in search to buy an apartment in 2005 but just couldn't find anything suitable, and then one day a friend told us of the Monsenor apartments and that was it,from the apartment you could see for miles with nothing blocking your view, just to sit on the balcony and watch the boats go by is a real pleasure.

There's also a nice golf course nearby and a driving range.

Matthew Kearney purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Matthew Kearney chose Gran Canaria

The main reason for buying the apartment in Playa del Cura was the amazing view & fresh air, no matter where we looked at other apartments something was always blocking the view of the sea. It's just a lovely area.

What makes this apartment unique

It has a large balcony where you can sit out and enjoy the views.

Just Booked our 5th stay!

  • 5 of 5

As this was our 4th stay we know the apartment well. Its very clean and well equipped - a real home from home. We never fail to love the views from the terrace and love watching the sun come up over the mountains in the morning.Pam is on hand if we have any problems and the bottle of wine and water is very much appreciated. We have just booked for 2018-that must say it all!

Amazing view

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for two weeks and couldn't fault the complex except on occasion the smell from the Spanish sewage system was evident. Overall a great stay, away from the main busy centre of Puerto rico which suited us just fine as we didn't want the noise of discos etc. at night, but either a short taxi or bus ride away for entertainment. A fabulous restaurant a short distance away with food to die for the guatanamo, although the complex restaurant was very reasonable and very tasty if you wanted to eat in and the bar at the top was cosy. The apartment had one of the most comfortable double beds I have ever slept in and equipped with everything you could need. Swimming pools were clean and non crowded. Would I stay here again-yes.
