Overview

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 1 Studio, Sleeps 3, 1 Bathroom

The studio size with about 50 square meters is ideal for 2-3 people. The kitchen is well equipped with a 4-plate ceramic hob, oven, toaster, coffee maker and a washing machine. It is optically separated from the living/sleeping area by a narrow wooden room divider. In the living area you can use a 2 seat sofa and a wicker chair if you like to stay inside the studio. On the opposite side there is a double bed and there is a lot of space in wardrobes and shelves. But the weather will most certainly lure you outside where you are awaited by a large 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... Looking down from your terrace you’ll see two horses, black and white. Do you want to learn horse riding? There I can help you, please contact me. Also there are two cats, a large very loving black dog, and of course a nice neighbour – me! – I can supply you with all kind of tips and information.

About your host Mona Janke

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

Why your host Mona Janke chose Playa de Cura

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.

What makes this house unique

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

Superurlaub im Barranco del Cura

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Februar 2 sehr erholsame Wochen erlebt in der Finca Monica 3. Von Anfang an haben wir uns zu Hause gefuehlt. Der “unkomplizierte” Empfang von Mona hat sicherlich dazu beigetragen. Die Wohnung war gross, sauber und und sehr komplett ausgestattet. Terrassen ringsum, so dass man nach Wunsch zu jedem Zeitpunkt Sonne bzw. Schatten suchen kann (die Sonne zeigt sich im Februar von 8.30 bis etwa 17.00 Uhr). Bei der absoluten Ruhe und der wunderschoenen Aussicht auf den Bergen laesst man allen Stress vom Alltag hinter sich. Man wohnt ziemlich abgeschieden aber innerhalb von 15 Minuten spaziert man nach Playa del Cura mit Restaurants und einem gut sortierten Spar-Supermarkt.

Mona, herzlichen Dank fuer deine Gastfreundschaft. Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen.

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Nachdem wir uns gegen einen vom Reisebüro empfohlenen Hotelurlaub entschieden haben, stießen wir über Fewo-direkt auf diese wunderbare Finca.

Nach kurzem Telefonat und e-Mail Kontakt haben wir diese Finca gebucht. Ihre Lage auf der Insel Gran Canaria ist außergewöhnlich günstig: wenig Wind, viele Sonnenstunden und trotz Strandnähe (mit 2 kleinen Kindern optimal) ist es sehr ruhig und man wohnt abseits vom Touristenrummel. Die Finca ist sehr sauber und einladend eingerichtet. Eine schöne Terrasse mit Liegen und Grill haben uns nichts vermissen lassen. Das Tal ist intelligent bepflanzt und läd zu einem Spaziergang ein. Insgesamt war die Betreuung durch Mona und ihre Freunde gut und wir haben uns jederzeit sehr willkommen gefühlt. Die Finca ist auf jeden Fall eine gute Empfehlung für Alle die einen entspannten und individuellen Urlaub verbringen möchten. Ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Tagesausflüge in die Berge und mit Nähe zur Autobahn ist auch der Norden der Insel schnell erreicht. (Die Serpentinenstrassen in den Bergen sind zeitlich nicht zu unterschätzen).

Gerne kommen wir wieder.......

Vielen dank für den schönen Urlaub.

Urlaub in "wild-romantischer" Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 14 wundervolle und erholsame Tage in der Finca 3 verbringen können und es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Danke Mona! Ab vom Tourismus und doch zentral (ca. 5 Minuten zum Einkaufen) war es für uns nicht schwer den Alltag hinter uns zu lassen. Die meiste Zeit haben wir auf der großen Terrasse vor dem Haus verbracht aber auch die Grillecke genutzt (Schattenplatz). Beim Bogenschießen mit Walter wurden Kindheitserinnerungen wach. Danke Walter für deine Geduld!

Fazit: Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder! Danke!

Eine wunderschöne Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten das Glück das wir unseren Urlaub bei Mona verleben durften.Wir bewohnten die Finca Monica 1.Wir hatten über 2 Wochen traumhaftes Wetter und haben viele Wanderungen unternommen und sind oft im Meer baden gewesen.Dafür bietet sich der Standort der Finca hervorragend an.Die Ausstattung der Finca ist perfekt.Es hat an nichts gefehlt.Wir hatten schon oft Ferienwohnungen da fehlte mal der Toaster oder die Kaffeemaschine usw.

Hier war alles perfekt. Deshalb würden wir auch Langzeiturlaubern die Finca Monica empfehlen. Bis zu 3 Personen ideal. Die Finca ist sehr sauber und gemütlich. Auch die Betten sind breit genug.

Ein Auto wäre schon ratsam, obwohl man zu Fuss in 20 Minuten am Sparmarkt und bei den Restaurants ist. Abends nach dem Essen mit der Taschenlampe wieder zurück zur Finca ist auch ein Erlebnis.

Wunderbar war es auch abends in der absoluten Stille den Sternenhimmel zu geniessen.Wir würden sagen dies ist ein Geheimtip für jeden der die Ruhe liebt.

Auch Mona ist eine sehr nette sympatische Frau,die immer weiter hilft und einem mit Rat und Tat zur Seite steht.Wir würden gerne wiederkommen.Danke Mona.

Car: recommended

The Barranco del Cura (Barranco means 'rocky valley') where the 'Finca Monica' is situated offers total relax and silence with fantastic formation of the mountains, hiker paths and interesting views all over there. This site invites you to stroll along and hike within the mountains bow Shooting is available- more informations you´ll get elsewhere.

Other Activities: Deep sea fishing, beach volley, large trampoline, Squash, Gym

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.

By the way: One says Gran Canary´s climate is one of the best in the world - especially for those people who have problems with rheumatism and asthma.
