About Jim and Ruth Van Ham

Ruth and I are both now retired having finished work at 54 and 51 respectively. We have 4 grand children that keep us busy when in the UK but we do travel quite a lot. It is a big world and we want to see as much of it as we can.

Jim and Ruth Van Ham purchased this villa in 2008

Why Jim and Ruth Van Ham chose Playa de Cura

We saw the view and fell in love with it. six years on and we still haven't tired of it.

What makes this villa unique

It is great for couples to relax and families to enjoy. It seems to suit all different types of guests. I guess the views must mesmerise every one as much as it does for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed for 1 week at the beginning of February and had a truly wonderful and relaxing time. My husband and I had the downstairs room which we shared with our baby girl (luckily the bed was huge and big enough for all 3 of us). My mum and dad had the room upstairs which had it's own bathroom, which was great as we weren't on top of each other.



The villa has a stunning view - it really is as good as the photos (better actually). You feel like you're on the deck of a ship looking out to sea! It was pure heaven having coffee and croissants (from the bakery downstairs) on our terrace admiring the view.



Pool was lovely and the weather was hot enough on a couple of days for a swim. Pretty good for February!



The villa is very well equipped and SO clean. Probably the cleanest villa I've ever stayed in! The kitchen has everything so ideal if you fancy cooking. The owners were so kind before our stay and ensured there would be a cot and high chair for our baby girl. They also emailed us with many tips for our stay. Great service!

The view is amazing

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5. Children age 15, 13 and 10.

Lovely villa. Good for families or if you like a nice and quiet place. Clean and wellmaintained. Ruth and Jim are so helpfull with tips and Jeff who maintains the villa, met us when we arrived and helped us get settled in.

Fantastic view over the ocean from several rooms. The terrace is big. We spend a lot of time there. Watched the sunset, had breakfast and lunch and looked at stars at night.

In mid february the sun is on the terrace from sunset till about 4/5 pm. You´ll need warm clothes after sunset

Nice little beach with fine dark sand. There is a Spar supermarked with most grocery needed or you can go to a big Carrefour 30 minuttes from Playa del Cura.

There are a few nice restaurants to choose from. We recommend Guantanamo, a little up priced, but great food. Remember to book ahead.

The pizzas from Monsenor restaurant were really good and delivered to the house. We also did a lot of cooking on our own.

We went on day trips by car to Soria and Guyadeque. Very scenic and greener than the coast. There is a small museum in Guyadeque with interresting information about the original inhabitants of Gran Canaria.

Please note there is some walking to do op the hill from the beach and the supermarket. Can be an issue if you are there with small children or have difficulty walking.

Super topklasse med fantastisk udsigt

  • 5 of 5

Et hyggeligt hus med en fantastisk beliggenhed udsigt til både bjergene og havet. Tæt på indkøbsmuligheder og spisesteder.

Et roligt område tæt på både Puerto Rico og Mogan.

Et sted vi med sikkerhed vil besøge igen. Kan varmt anbefales.

October holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have always booked our holiday by travel agent so was a little nervous but Jim and Ruth really were very informative and helpful about different topics of the holiday from flights to things to do when you've arrived in Gran Caneria

The villa is beautiful, clean, well equipped, the Terrence in lovely with a pool which is perfect for cooling off as October was 30 ➕ very hot and the views are simply stunning.

we hired a car which we booked on-line before we went on holiday it all went very smooth as we picked it up from the airport.

if your looking for pure relaxation this place is perfect so much so where going back next year, The cleaners were very helpful and welcoming

well thanks Jim and Ruth and really looking forward to our next holiday.

Perfect Winter escape (Or any time!)

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this property. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and shown around the villa by a couple who live on the complex and who were always on hand during our stay. Villa was very well equipped and clean.

THE VIEW IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!! it's just like the pictures and it's very restful on the eye. The pool area is a lovely place to relax and having the pool was great to cool down in. Even in October the weather was 30 degrees +.

Very useful info about what to do and where to go was available in the villa. We referred to this a lot. All of the info provided by the owners was useful and they gave good directions!

The complex was very quiet during our stay and we felt safe and secure. A small selections of good quality bars and restaurants are available a short walk away along with a well equipped Spar. Parking was no problem during our stay. The complex itself has lots of facilities with 2 bars/cafes, shop, bakery, hairdresser and numerous pools and all of the staff and other residents were very friendly to us. There seems to be a lot of residential occupiers and there is a lovely sense of community amongst the residents who seem to be mostly German or Spanish. Water slide was great fun for children and adults!

We would highly recommend for a relaxing break.

A clean villa with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Hello Jim and Ruth,

I apologise for not writing sooner but it has been a full on few days since we returned. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and the experience you provided us with; it is sad to be back to the lower temperatures of Britain. We were a bit dubious of booking a villa originally for we always used to go all inclusive, but your villa exceeded our expectations. We loved being in such a tranquil setting, and yet not being too far from the amenities. We had a very busy week in which we went to Palmitos Park, on the yellow submarine, hired a motor boat and visited Loro Parque in Tenerife to name a few! After such a busy day we always knew we could return to comfort of the villa which made it feel like home. All of the small things, such as the smell of the clean, fresh linen, were everything we needed. We appreciate the thought of all of these minor details and the fantastic facilities that were available to us. Pam and Jeff were an asset to you; not only was the villa spotless, if we needed to know any information or recommendations, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Thank you for all your help with the flights and all of the information you gave to us to provide us with such an enjoyable holiday. We are already looking for flights for next August, but unfortunately they are currently only booking flights up until June. We would highly recommend your villa (provided they don't take any weeks we want!) We were wondering if you have any other villas, as we found your customer care and service far superior to any travel agent I have ever dealt with. As for all inclusive versus villa, we are now converted! Hopefully we will be in touch soon, and once again thank you for everything. I personally found that this was the best holiday I have ever had.

Kind regards,

Dave, Melissa, Olivia, Jessica and Ross

Notes:
If you are a golfing fanatic you will love this villa situation. There are 5 (yes five) 18 hole golf courses within 20 km of the villa. The nearest is only 3 km from the villa. You can see it from the terrace. it has a championship 18 hole course and a 9 hole par 3 course. Then 10 km away at Salobre Golf there are two different 18 hole courses (North and South). 15 km from the villa is Melonaras with yet another 18 hole par 72 course, and finally 20 km away is Maspalomas with another 18 hole course. Where else could you get five 18 hole courses so close to your doorstep?
