FINCA MONICA 2

Playa de Cura House Rental Photos and Description

quiet terrace with barbecue amidst plants, few minutes to the beach

My “Finca Monica” seems to be located all alone in the mountains but it´s only a 5 min. drive to the nearest small shopping center at Playa del Cura and the beach. The nearby little town Puerto Rico offers more shops, restaurants of all kinds, pubs and discos and a lot of different  leisure activities such a tennis, squash,  large trampolines, gym and golf (nearby). If you are ready to go a little bit further still (ca. 20 km) you can share the nightlife of Playa del Inglés – that is the absolute contrast to Barranco del Cura – you´ll see... Therefore, it is recommendable but not urgently necessary to hire a car   – when contacting a “Rent a car” I´m very happy to help you if you like.

How to go to Finca Monica and adress: From the airport take the motorway South, past Playa del Inglés, further on to Arguineguin and finally to Puerto Rico leaving there the motorway. – At the roundabout go to the right towards Mogán. – Following the street about 800 meters, you will arrive at another roundabout with a sign post leading you to the right at “Barranco del Cura”. – You´ll have to go straight on at the lightly ascending way that after about 500 m will turn into a somewhat bumpy lane. Carry on straight, on reaching a big iron gate I will meet you and guide you on your last meters to your vacation home. Now you are only 8 min away from Puerto Rico, at your destination – Finca Monica in the midst of charming mountains, so quiet that during the night you can hear crickets chirp – something for individualists.

Adress : Mona Janke - Barranco del Cura - C/Pardela, n. 28 - 35138 Mogán, Gran Canaria, Spain - Tel.: +34 928 153059 - mobile +34 619 710027

Transfer and sightseeing / excursions: If you need a transfer from or to the airport please inform me. For a small fee I`ll be very happy to arrange it for you.

Maybe you are interested in tours or excursions to the surrounding areas, or all over the island? I can help you find the best with my island experience, of almost 20 years! Maybe an interesting example is a folklore event that takes place at every Sunday in Las Palmas in the North of the island. There is also an open tourist bus to see the sights of the city. Inland, you may visit caves where people still live almost under conditions of ancient times – only the antenna outside testifies to modern inventions such as television.

Spanish lessons and hiking: Finally something totally different: If you like you can have a bit of education and additional knowledge. Although I´m not an examined teacher I have intense and long experience with tutoring and beginner lessons in English and Spanish. Perhaps you´ll discover an hitherto hidden talent of foreign languages then – please tell me if you´re interested in this…

If you feel like exploring the area on foot all over in the barranco (engl.: rocky valley) you can discover something new. Also dogs (by appointment please) can sport about nearly everywhere. This idyllic part at the southwest of Gran Canaria is situated quite near to the main tourist centers but right here you´ll find only hikers, some animals and those few residents of this Barranco, all of us nice people of all ages.

More Details

Details for Finca Monica 2 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom

The finca´s size is approximately 65 m² and suitable for 2-3 persons. The kitchen is well equipped with a 4-plate ceramic hob, oven, washing machine, microwave, toaster and a German elektric coffeemaker and is optically separated by the dining table from the living room. The living room is located opposite the sofa seating area, a wardrobe and a sideboard, which provide enough of the TV and all the many little things that you need storage space. The friendly bedroom is decorated in red and black with two single beds, a large chest of drawers and various coat hooks. The weather will most certainly lure you outside, where you are awaited by a large quiet terrace that invites you to have a glass of wine bathed by moonlight, or maybe an afternoon barbecue under the shade of the palm trees. Enjoy the peace and silence - no one will disturb you ... otherwise staying in Barranco only a few dear people, two cats and a nice neighbor – that´s me ! - who will be happy to supply you with all kin

After 35 years in Germany, I was drawn into the sun - now I live here and still feel very comfortable on Gran Canaria.

your host Mona Janke purchased this house in 2002

At my first visit with my parents in the Barranco del Cura I thought: 'Here I´d like to stay forever! Now I live since 1995 in my paradise, gradually I built up the three Finca Monicas, lovingly furnished to make you feel comfortable with me.

The amenities of a functioning infrastructure (close to shops, beach, transport, doctor, etc.) in connection with seclusion, relaxation and tranquility.

Beautiful gem nestled away in the Barranco

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed at Finca Monica 2 for 1 week during January 2013.

The owner Mona arranged to collect us from the airport, she was really nice and welcoming and even let us nip to the Spar before going to the Finca to get breakfast supplies as we had arrived on an evening flight.

The Finca Monica 2 was perfect for my partner and I. We didn't hire a car as we like to keep fit and enjoy walking and running but we have to say, if an older couple or people who struggle with mobility would like to stay here we would recommend you hire a car.

The property is well equipped and in a good location for those looking to escape the crowds. There is a nice dining area inside and also out on the terrace with sunbeds to use. Its very quiet and peaceful and we had a perfect time just relaxing and enjoying our surroundings.

Mona also provided mountain bikes for us to use and they were great for what we needed them for.

We spoke daily to the maintainance man Gino who was really kind and helpful and there is also a beautiful dog, Arka, who may come and see you if your sat outside, but she is very friendly.

Overall we had a great experience at Finca Monica 2, we didnt want to leave and wished we could have stayed for longer than 1 week!

Mona is really efficient in communicating with you both before and during your stay and we would really like to re-visit again in the future. We may visit the Finca further up next time with friends but if we come alone Finca Monica 2 will be just perfect.

An excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very relaxing week in Finca Monika 2, away from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Rico or Playa del Ingles. The Finca has everything you require for a week or two's holiday and everything was as described on the website. Mona was very helpful and made sure that we were comfortable. I would recommend hiring a car as the journey to and from the coast would be a bit tiresome every day without transport, although if you are a fan of walking then you would probably think nothing of it. Definitely a place for people who don't like crowds but love the countryside. Thanks Mona!

Einfach schön !!!

  • 5 of 5
wir ,paar, 40 Jahre, waren zwei wochen im juni 2009 in der finca monica 2. das haus sowie die anreise waren exakt beschrieben und gut zu finden. das haus ist gepflegt, gemütlich und sehr gut ausgestattet. die lage ist einfach traumhaft und sehr ruhig. die vermieterin ist supernett und wir haben uns wie zu hause gefühlt. ein wagen ist unbedingt erforderlich. trotz der unebenen auffahrt zum haus ist ein normaler mietwagen völlig ausreichend. die selbstverpflegung ist über den nahegelegenen sparmarkt, ca. 5 autominuten entfernt, zwar nicht billig aber die preise sind ok und die auswahl gut. weitere supermärkte finden sich in den nahegelegenen orten puerto de mogan und puerto rico.
es war ein wirklich schöner, ruhiger, erholsamer urlaub und wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen.

Tolle Fewo und eine herrliche Lage. Alles war mehr als traumhaft und der Urlaub bleibt unvergessen. Die Lage ist wie gesagt super einsam und daher mehr als Ruhig , was wir Städter ja nicht mehr gewohnt sind. Anbindung ans Leben geht nur mit dem Wagen , daher nichts für pauschal Urlauber.
Kommen gerne wieder .
Waren 2 Wochen da und waren sehr traurig wie wir abreisen musten.

Golf: In the surrounding area and all over the island you´ll find some nice golf sites with 9 and 18 holes that can be used by passionate golfers all year round.
