Comfortable apartment up to 5 pers., idyllic site for individualists - Finca Monica 1

Bedrooms Studio
Space 50 m²
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights



Finca Monica 1

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 the property

Finca Monica

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.

Why your host Mona Janke chose Gran Canaria

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.

Urlaub pur

  • 5 of 5

Gesucht hatten wir ein ruhiges Domizil. Genau das haben wir gefunden. Die Ausstattung war super und hat unseren Ansprüchen mehr als genügt. Man merkt die deutsche Seite der Vermieterin.

Die Lage ist sehr gut. Auch wenn die Wohnung abgelegen ist, ist man zugleich schnell am Strand oder auf der Autobahn. Der Strand am Ort ist ist angenehm wenig überlaufen, anders als die Stränder von Nachbarorten. Selbst das Einkaufen vor Ort ist möglich.

Die kleine Terrasse war im Urlaub unser zu Hause. Hier haben wir gegessen und die Sonne genossen. Die Nachrichten aus der Heimat kann man per Satellitenfernsehen vom Sofa aus genießen.

Nach nur einer Woche, mehr Zeit war uns nicht vergönnt, war die Erholung deutlich zu spüren. Schuld dafür waren sicherlich auch das sommerliche Wetter, der gute Wein von Lanzarote, der Ziegenkäse, das frische Obst und der frisceh Fisch. Doch waren es auch die Ruhe und die angenehme Atmosphäre der Finca.

Sollten wir wieder Gelegenheit haben, dann kommen wir gerne wieder.

Super Finca/Ferienwohnung sehr gerne wieder !!!

  • 5 of 5

Wenn man den Süden von Gran Canaria erleben möchte, findet man hier eine ganz tolle, ruhige und abgeschiedene Unterkunft in einem Barranco (Schlucht). Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen: In der Sonne relext, Touren mit dem Auto und Wanderungen unternommen und die sehr gut ausgestattete Küche genutzt, um spanisch zu kochen (auch draußen gegrillt), da uns die fussläufig durchaus erreichbaren Restaurants nicht wirklich überzeugt haben.

Lieben Dank an unsere Vermieterin Mona, die uns mit einer Flasche Wein, Bier im Kühlschrank und 5l Wasser vom Start weg gut versorgt hat.

Reisezeit Ende Februar/Anfang März

Grüner Ruhepunkt hinterm Tor zum Barranco del Cura

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu dritt unseren dreiwöchigen Urlaub in der Finca 4 verbracht und uns äußerst wohl gefühlt, Einrichtung ist völlig ausreichend, Küchenutensilien ebenfalls. Zur Finca gehört eine riesige Terrasse! Das zweite Zimmer hat leider nur einen Zugang über diese Terrasse, sollte man wissen. Entgegen einem Vorredner, kann man in unmittelbarer Umgebung auch ohne Massen ganz gemütlich baden, es gibt so gar einen FKK Stand. Mona kümmert sich um alle Belange,

sie ist sehr bemüht, dass es dem Gast wirklich gut geht. Wir kommen bald wieder hier her, vielen Dank. Adios

Idyllischer Feriendomizil

  • 5 of 5

Nach einer etwas abenteuerlichen Anreise im Barranco waren wir sehr positiv überrascht über die schön gelegene Finca.

Wir fühlten uns sehr gut aufgenommen. Die Einrichtung und Sauberkeit ließen keine Wünsche offen.

Vor allem haben wir es sehr genossen das man auf der Terrasse in Ruhe frühstücken und grillen konnte.

Wir können die Finca für alle ruhesuchenden empfehlen.

Wunderbare Barranco Welt

  • 4 of 5

Nur wenige Meter vom Massentourismus entfernt liegt diese idyllische Anlage im Barranco del Cura. Sehr zu empfehlen für Individualreisende, die Ruhe suchen. Die vielfältigen Angebote von der sehr netten und hilfsbereiten Besitzerin, Monika Janke, haben wir nicht genutzt, da wir nur eine Woche im Dez. 2016 im Barranco waren und außerdem sehr viel unterwegs waren. Für einen Badeurlaub ist die Region leider nicht geeignet, da in der unmittelbaren Umgebung nur völlig überlaufende Strände vorzufinden sind. Die Gegend ist eher ein Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in die nahgelegenden Berge. Wir verbrachten unsere Woche im Appartment 1. Ein App. von ausreichender Größe für 2 Personen. Eine traumhaft schöne Terrasse ideal zum Essen oder Lesen oder einfach nur zum Genießen der traumhaften Stille. Die Einrichtung des App. bedarf in Teilen einer Überholung. Couch und Bett sind einigermaßen durchgelegen bzw. gesessen und laden nicht unbedingt zum Verweilen ein.

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.
