Modern Hacienda style Villa Private Garden & Solar Heated Private Pool



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
Villa in the heart of Maspalomas, Gran Canaria - Secluded, Quiet, Private, Very Close To Maspalomas Beach & Sand Dunes, Shops, Restaurants And Golf

Ideally situated, the villa is situated a short walk from the sand dunes, the protected lagoon and the long beautiful Maspalomas beach which stretches along the coast from the nearby Faro lighthouse as well as the cafes and shops of Melonares. It is a stunning private upmarket hacienda style villa with TV/DVD/WiFi/stereo etc, and features an expansive garden (perfect for sunbathing) including its own private solar heated swimming pool with jacuzzi feature, landscapped with bougainvillea, flowers and shrubs. Yet all the modern facilities (restaurants, supermarkets, taxis etc) may be found less than a 5 minute walk. The villa is a 3/4 minute drive from the busy nightlife of the Yumbo, Cita and Kasbah centres in Playa del Ingles as well as close to all the main holiday attractions; Holiday World Fairground, Aqualand, Sioux City, Perla Canaria, Go Karting, Jeep Safaris and Camel tours. The main Maspalomas golf course is a 2 minute stroll from the front door!

About the Owner

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.

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!!!

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

This was booked for a small group of friends celebrating a 50th birthday and we were delighted with the villa when we arrived. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped for a week in the sun. The pool was brilliant fun, and cleaned twice whilst we were there. We only left the villa to go for short walks or to get provisions during the day as it was just too fabulous to go anywhere else. It's a good 15 minutes walk to the front of the resort but very flat and accessible for all. I can't wait to go back!!!

Villa in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely Villa for 4 weeks from November into December and didn't want to leave! It's in a great location within walking distance of the beach and the shops & restaurants of Meloneras. Also only a quick taxi ride into Playa del Ingles. The weather was superb and we had breakfast, lunch & dinner outside on the lovely terrace when not eating out.

Beverley was great and I I highly recommend this Villa!

Excellent villa, pools and garden.

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful villa.

We had a superb time, the pools at the accommodation were great. our kids and we really made the most of them - our oldest daughter Isla (4) even learnt to dive for some dive sticks! We will take such great memories from our time there.

The whole place was just as advertised ! You cannot ask for more than that! 😃 what an amazing location you have in between two great vibrant areas - yet the villa itself is still quiet, secure and exclusive.

One evening We went to one of the recommended restaurants 'the las Rias' and had a first class meal. Thanks for the local tips.

I was very impressed by the music history that you generously share in your library.

Beverly and the gardener were both fantastic representatives - please pass on our thanks to them.

We would have no hesitation in recommending villa paraso for any one looking for a place to stay in Gran Canaria.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees
Refundable Damage Deposit £360


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.
