Everything you need is within walking distance. Grocery stores, restaurants, beach are just steps away. Los Balandros is on a quiet street. The apartment is well set up & comfortable. I found the couch way to low for my comfort level & a foot stool or automan would be nice. The kitchen & bathroom are nice & newly re-done.
We enjoyed a month here.
Gorgeous villa, garden & pool. We stayed for a week at the end of March. The weather was hot and sunny. The garden was full of orange blossom, flowers, butterflies, growing fruits, and birds. It felt very tropical with the palm trees and the odd cute friendly lizard sunbathing.
The house is beautiful inside, really clean and the rooms are good.
The main road to get to the villa is a dramatic mountain road that winds its way around the steep mountain side with breathtaking views. Having a hire car is essential. Parking for the villa is on the quiet lane that leads down to the villa. The pool is kept really clean but it isn’t heated so even when the sun is out a dip in the pool is pretty cold, I like a refreshingly cold dip but others may not.
There is a lovely restaurant in Santa Lucia called Casa Antonio which is worth going to. Don’t bother with the restaurant called Mirador.
Really loved this rural piece of heaven and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing time in a beautifully maintained traditional Gran Canarian villa.
