FINCA MONICA 3

Playa de Cura Chateau / Country 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.

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 chateau / country 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.

Perfect Baranca Holiday

  • 5 of 5
If you like peace and quiet, a beautiful countryside right outside your doorstep, and your own baranca with easy access to walks and climbs - this is the place for you.
Furthermore you have Playa Cura and its shopping centre and restaurants only a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk away from the house.
The house has everything you need for a perfect holiday, Lots of places to sit and relax, a terrace for any occasion and time of the day. 2 good bedrooms with 3 beds in all, and 2 extra beds on a balcony above the sitting room - only accessible after a bit of a climb and a crawl. But children will love it!
The house has a real homely atmosphere. Everything is in perfect order, most of the things are brand new.
Mona, the owner of the house, is very friendly and helpful. Her English is very good and she knows the area really well.
The road to the house is a bit difficult to find the first time, along a bumpy dirt road. This cannot be right, you think, behind a locked gate. But Mona will be there and guide you - at any time of the day, or in our case night.
Thank you, Mona.

ein toller Barranco del Cura

  • 5 of 5
Im April 2014 haben wir, zwei befreundete Ehepaare, unseren Frühjahrsurlaub in der Finca Monica3 verbracht. Es war wieder ein super Urlaub im Barranco del Cura und wir haben die Idylle und auch sonst alles andere genossen.

Mit unserem Mietwagen haben wir die Insel erobert und sind immer wieder gerne zur Finca zurück und haben dort die Abende verbracht.

Die Finca ist sehr schön und gemütlich eingerichtet und es fehlt an nichts.

Ein kleiner Plausch mit der netten Vermieterin Mona oder ein Gespräch mit Walter waren stets informativ und angenehm.

Einen lieben Dank an Mona, dass sie uns als Gäste an diesem schönen Fleck der Erde teilhaben lässt und einen lieben Dank an Walter, dessen Fußreflexzonenmassage wir immer wieder in toller Erinnerung haben.

Und…Dank für den Tipp „Vistamar“ :-)).

Wir denken oft an euch,
bis bald
Wiebke, Ralf, Werner und Susanne

Einen lieben Gruß aus Kiel.

Ein kleines Paradies inmitten der Berge ;)

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 7 wunderschöne Tage in der Finca Monica 3, ein idealer Ort um dem Alltagsstress zu entfliehen und die traumhafte Ruhe und Natur zu genießen. Die Finca ist stilvoll eingerichtet und verfügt über ausreichend Platz um sich wohl zu fühlen. An Ausstattung fehlt es an nichts. Der Außenbereich bietet 3 super gepflegte Rückzugsmöglickeiten um die Sonne zu genießen oder in geselliger Runde zusammen zu sitzen. Für letzteres haben wir besonders die "Chill-out-Lounge" mit Grillbereich hinter dem Haus genutzt. Langweilig wird es hier definitiv nie, denn die zahlreichen Geckos und Eidechsen sorgen immer für Unterhaltung ;)

Durch die gute Lage der Finca boten sich uns zahlreiche Möglichkeiten, die Insel auf eigene Faust mit dem Mietwagen zu erkunden und in den nahegelegenen Supermärkten oder Restaurants für das leibliche Wohl zu sorgen. Kleiner Tipp: ein geländetauglicher Mietwagen ist von Vorteil ;)

Wir bedanken uns bei unserer Vermieterin Mona für ihre freundliche und hilfsbereite Betreuung während unseres Aufenthaltes.

Wir haben unseren Urlaub hier sehr genossen und werden die Finca auf jeden Fall an Freunde und Bekannte weiter empfehlen.

Alles super: Finca - Vermieterin - Umgebung

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 14 wunderschöne Tage in der Finca Monica 3. Die Finca ist bestens ausgestattet, sehr geräumig, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und verfügt über 2 Terassen vor dem Haus und einem sehr romantischen Grillplatz hinter dem Haus.
Die steinige Umgebung hat einen sehr eigenen Charme, den wir uns erst erschließen mussten, ihn aber dann sehr genossen haben. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants lassen nichts zu wünschen übrig. Die zentrale Lage der Finca lässt schnelle Ausflüge zum Meer zu, aber auch in die beeindruckende Bergwelt, wo täglich neue Entdeckungen zu machen sind.
Unsere sehr sympathische Vermieterin Mona stand uns jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Sie kennt sich auf der Insel bestens aus, gibt interessante Tipps für Ausflüge und springt mit ihren Spanischkenntnissen ein, wo dies notwendig ist.
Ein Highlight des Aufenthalts war ein Kurs im intuitiven Bogenschießen bei Walter, der unterhalb der Finca sein Domizil hat. Seine ruhige und einfühlsame Art hat in uns die Begeisterung für diesen Sport geweckt. Seither sind wir auf der Suche nach jemandem, der wie Walter unterrichtet, aber das dürfte schwer werden, denn die Erwartungen sind natürlich hoch.
Alles in allem: es war ein wunderschöner Urlaub, bei dem es an nichts fehlte.
Nochmals vielen Dank an Mona und Walter!!!

Abseits der Touristenströme

  • 5 of 5
Abseits der Touristenströme haben wir uns im ruhig gelegenen Barranco del Cura superwohl gefühlt. Von hier aus haben wir viele Ausflüge ins Umland und an die tollen Strände Gran Canarias gemacht. Unsere Kinder fanden besonders die am Himmel kreisenden Adler und die am Boden raschelnden Eidechsen super.

Die Finca ist gut ausgestattet, wir haben hier nichts vermisst. Den Fernseher haben wir nicht benötigt, dafür haben wir das W-LAN Netz und das Bücherregal intensiv genutzt.
Die zur Verfügung stehenden Mountainbikes sind in einem prima Zustand. Sie sind aber aufgrund der Rahmengröße nicht für Kinder unter 12 Jahren geeignet.
Unsere Vermieterin Mona ist nett und hilfsbereit gewesen und über den zerbrochenen Teller hat sie nur gelächelt.
Es war also alles genau so, wie man es sich im Urlaub wünscht.

einfach toll

  • 5 of 5
Ich glaube, das waren die schönsten Ferien meines Lebens. Mona, meine freundliche und flexilble Vermieterin, sagte mir, daß diese Finca zum ersten Mal vermietet worden ist und ich muß sagen, wir haben uns alle vier superwohl gefühlt. Die Finca liegt wunderbar ruhig, dabei aber zentral, ist sehr geräumig und mit allem ausgestattet, was man im Urlaub so braucht - und noch ein bißchen mehr, wie zum Beispiel einem Fernglas zum Beobachten der hier fliegenden Adler ! Ich habe meinen Freunden diese Finca vermittelt, weil ich Mona kenne, und auch selber mit ihnen darin gewohnt, obwohl ich nicht weit weg lebe. Aber so habe ich unverhofft meinen Urlaub in einer traumhaften Umgebung mit guten Freunden verbringen können. Wir sagen alle - Danke

If you are interested in a bit fitness: Up there are two little appliances that - because of the heat - you can also provide outside, because at fresh air certainly it makes more fun. In the larger bedroom you will rest under stars - you will be surprised! - And there is a safe for your safety, but do not worry: With burglars we never had any problems so far, which is certainly also related to the large iron gate, where I will meet you to welcome you.

Behind the house - cool in summer, well protected in winter - you can barbecue all year and maybe feel fine with a glass of wine or a cold beer in the shade ... Something completely different: In the living room there is a small telescope for you to oberve wonderful eagles and falcons, they are often to be seen here at the barranco.
