About Colin

The villa is my personal holiday home.

It is available on a tenancy basis for part of the year; and is therefore not simply a holiday rental as such. I am retired from a career in the music business

and have recently completed a postgraduate degree in literature and drama from Kings College, University of London. I have been a regular visitor to Gran Canaria for over 30 years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thanks for the great time we all had at your villa in Gran Canaria. I give a rating of 10/10. We will definitely be booking again." Stephen Moss Aug 2010.

"A fantastic villa, we had a fantastic time, the location was perfect." Tonia Newson Aug 2010.

"Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your villa... the only problem was ... we didn't want to leave. Your villa is absolutely beautiful, we have stayed in villa's on a few occasions now, and this is by far our favorite one.My daughter, who is nearly three years called it the pretty house and on numerous occasions said that she wanted to stay there forever...

The layout of the villa and the facilities such as the privacy of the pool, barbecue, library, sat TV etc made it so easy for us not to even leave the villa..... however the location of the villa was also ideal when we did manage to tear ourselves away from the pool and venture a bit further as all the amenities were within walking distance." Chris Moncrieff April 2012.

Stunning villa with beautiful pool and garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paraiso 12 for the first time this year and were very very impressed.

The villa itself is beautiful and very homely. It is extremely clean, the gardens are also kept very neat and the pool is just perfect for cooling down. Our 5 year old son spent the entire week in there 👍🏻👍🏻

There are a few restaurants and bars just a very short walk from the villa as well as a handy supermarket for all of your essentials and the beach is also 10/15 min walk away making the villa perfectly located.

We will definitely be returning.

What a beautiful find in Gran Canaria. Extremely well appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful sunny week in Gran Canaria in December 2016. Everything from booking villa, transfers from airport organised by Bev was excellent. The villa was a beautiful retreat where it could have been tempting to spend the week without leaving. Kitchen was really well equipped and outside dining area was very well used. The library had an amazing array of books for all tastes. Would definitely love to return again.

Beautiful Villa in a quiet part of Maspalomas - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for a week while attending a family wedding and we cannot fault it at all.

Bev, the local agent, took care of our transfer (which I'd recommend, especially on your way home as we checked out at 11:00 and she was able to hold our luggage until our evening flight!) The villa is very well equipped and had lots of the essential basic stuff (from Tea and Coffee to Sun Screen and After sun to Shower Gels etc) already laid on. The villa itself is in a quiet street but taxis are everywhere and every journey seemed to be no more than €3

Beautiful villa, lovely saltwater pool (which is very refreshing when the temperature starts to climb) and a very homely, personal feel, no more so than the fantastic library with it's Gold Discs and Music Memorabilia.

Would love to go back for 2 weeks next time!

A fantastic spot to relax and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

Loved it! Beautiful garden and private pool. It's not massive but a real tranquil spot for some peace and quiet. The big shared pool is 20 yds away and never used if you want a little more exercise.

Well equipped kitchen and the air con and wifi worked well so worth paying the extra for.

Also a real treat to find a library with so many holiday reads.

Lovely holiday in Maspalomas

  • 4 of 5

The property is lovely with spacious rooms and well equipped kitchen. The seating area outside is perfect for enjoying the sunshine with room for everyone. The close proximity to the beach and restaurants makes it an ideal family villa holiday. We would thoroughly recommend this villa.

Perfect ....

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous villa, and very well equipped for a relaxing holiday in the sun. It is spotless, well maintained, very private and quiet. Bev was fantastic and welcoming! There were 6 of us for a 50th celebration and we found the villa difficult to leave as it was so lovely. the walk to the sea front is about 15 minutes but all flat so accessible to all

It was easy to book, communication with the owner was prompt and clear.

You won't be disappointed!!!

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees


Saturday - occasionally Monday - prices quoted cover up to 6 people commencing on Saturday. Bookings run for 7 or 14 days. We can occasionally offer alternative changeover days.


The price rates above comprise the 'Basic Rental' of the house. A 25% deposit is payable on reservation and secures your chosen dates with the balance then payable 10 weeks prior to commencement. Payments by bank transfer in £ or € are accepted. Credit and debit cards accepted via Owners Direct Direct Booking who add a "Service Fee" of between 4% and 8% calculated on a sliding scale and payable with the initial payment .

Despite the statement "No mandatory fees" next to "Fees" (above), there are actually some additional fees payable, but since they vary for each booking it has been impossible to programme and itemise them accurately under the Fees headline above. To make this simple we ask for a Damage/Cleaning/Utility Deposit of €400 (or £340 ) per booking payable in cash on arrival, from which we deduct these fees before refunding the balance within 2 weeks of your stay. .

They comprise the cost of the final clean (including laundry) at the end of your stay (set at €150), and also actual utility usage - electricity, water, rates, and rubbish collection - relating to your visit - usually just under €10 per day. We provide a detailed accounting with the refund of your deposit when you return home.

These variable fees effectively increase the Basic Rental charge quoted above, by approximately 220 euros pw (or about £185) and by 290 euros (about £245) per fortnight to give the all inclusive rate per visit - this inclusive price is quoted in any offer or quotation we make for the avoidance of any doubt.

Since they are not always required, Air conditioning (€50 pw or €80 per fortnight) and WiFi (€30 pw or €50 per fortnight) are both optional and may be arranged if required on arrival at the villa.
