Mogán 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.

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 chateau / country house in 2002

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.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

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

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung in ruhiger Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Die Finca Monica 3 ist eine sehr schöne und gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung. Wir haben im Mai 2015 eine erholsame Woche bei exzellentem Wetter in der Finca verbracht und können die Wohnung unbedingt weiterempfehlen.

Die Ferienwohnung liegt sehr ruhig und malerisch in einem Canyon ca. 5 Minuten Fahrt vom ruhigen Strandort Playa del Cura (30-40 Minuten vom Flughafen entfernt - ein Mietwagen ist unbedingt erforderlich). Die Umgebung rund um die Finca hat uns an die Canyons in Arizona und Utah erinnert und bietet dadurch einen tollen Kontrast zu den Hotels direkt am Strand.

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet (Toaster, Kaffeemaschine, Ceranfeld-Herd, großer Kühlschrank, reichlich Besteck und Geschirr). Besonders gut gefallen hat uns der gedeckte Grillplatz hinter dem Haus - mittags ein angenehm kühler Platz zum Ausruhen. Den Grill haben wir fast jeden Abend genutzt.

Zum Einkaufen bietet sich der Spar in Playa del Cura an, der sowieso auf dem Weg liegt, wenn man von der Finca wegfährt. Ein toller Strand (Amadores) ist nur 10 Minuten mit dem Auto weg.

Danke Mona für den tollen und erholsamen Urlaub bei Dir! Viele Grüße aus der Schweiz von Marion und Björn

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.

Sehr ruhig, mit viel Liebe eingerichtet

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit 4 Erwachsenen 14 Tage Urlaub auf der Finca Monica 3 gemacht. Die Finca liegt in einem ruhigen Barranco, der nur den Bewohnern zugänglich ist. Die Fahrt bis zum überdachten Parkplatz der Finca ist für ungeübte (nicht schwindelfreie) Fahrer eventuell fordernd, es steht aber ein paar Meter weiter unten ein weiterer Parkplatz zur Verfügung. Die Finca kuschelt sich mutig in den Berghang, ohne beengt zu wirken. Vor dem Haus kann in den Liegen und an dem Tisch gemütlich gesessen werden, hinter dem Haus auf dem Sofa und den Sesseln haben wir immer den Abend ausklingen lassen. Die Grillstelle wurde von uns regelmäßig genutzt - sehr schön!

Die Inneneinrichtung ist mit viel Liebe zusammengestellt: lauschige Fernsehecke (haben wir nicht einmal benutzt) mit Sofa und Sessel, komplett ausgestatte Küche mit sehr großem Kühlschrank, Mikrowelle, Wasserkocher, Kaffeemaschine, selbst die meisten Gewürze, Seife, Kaffee etc werden vorgehalten. An der Theke können 4 Personen bequem frühstücken. Selbst gemalte Bilder, allerlei Schmuckwerk, ein gut sortiertes Bücherregal und das ausreichend große Bad mit Bidet tragen zur Wohlfühlatmosphäre bei.

Das Doppel-Schlafzimmer bietet Zugang zum Balkon (mit kleinem Tisch und Stühlen sowie tollem Ausblick), in dem Schrank lässt sich bequem alles verstauen. Besonders zu erwähnen ist der zur Verfügung stehende Safe!

Das Einzelschlafzimmer ist recht knapp bemessen, aber man möchte ja "nur" dort schlafen. Außerdem ist durch das Zimmer der schnellste Weg zu der Grillstelle hinterm Haus. Die zwei Einzelbetten unterm Dach waren aufgrund der Wärme (August) und einem fehlenden Fenster in Bettnähe etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, weshalb wir 3 Personen als Maximalbelegung im Sommer für angeraten halten.

Positiv zu erwähnen sind auch die Mückengitter vor den meisten Fenstern (wer jagt nachts schon gerne Stechmücken?). Wenn wir einen Minuspunkt angeben müssten, wäre es die fehlende Klimaanlage. Dafür wären zumindest wir bereit gewesen, einen Aufpreis vor Ort zu bezahlen - das würde auch die zwei Betten unter dem Dach ohne Hitzestau nutzbar machen.

Das Gesamtpaket (und auch der Preis) passt, wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und kommen gerne wieder!

Owner's Response: Danke für Eure Bewertung - sehr hilfreich auch für mich, da ich mich nun in meiner Idee bestärkt sehe, oben in der Galerie ein Fenster einzubauen - das verhindert dann den bisherigen Hitzestau im Sommer. Zum nächsten Sommer wird das Problem beseitigt sein. Ich freue mich immer über positive, aber auch über negative Kritik, die mich dazu anregt, Dinge zu verbessern - danke nochmal. Liebe Grüße an Euch alle, ich hoffe, mit dem Heiratsantrag hat alles geklappt ... Mona von Gran Canaria

sehr empfehlenswert

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren in den Osterferien mit unseren Kindern, 7 und 8 Jahre alt, in Mona Jankes "Finca 3". Wir alle haben uns vom ersten Tag an wohl gefühlt. Die Finca (mit den drumherum liegenden Terrassen und Plätzen) ist gemütlich, gut ausgestattet und in zahlreichen Details liebevoll gestaltet. Das Felsental verspricht schöne Ausblicke und Eindrücke, eine unglaubliche Ruhe, gleichzeitig ist es zur Küste ein Katzensprung. Mona, die vor Ort lebt, war immer sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert. Einziges kleines Manko: Die Finca ist hellhörig, was aber für andere Gäste / Paare /Eltern mit größeren Kindern etc. kein Thema sein dürfte. Fazit: sehr zu empfehlen!

Schön und ruhig gelegene Finca

  • 4 of 5

Die Finca Monica ist gut gelegen. Der Weg zum Strand ist ca. 1,5 km. Allerdings ist der Fahrweg in einem nicht allzu gutem Zustand und man benötigt entsprechende Bodenfreiheit.

Wir haben 2 sehr schöne und ruhige Wochen in der Finca Monica 3 verbracht.

Es war alles vorhanden, was benötigt wurde und zudem in gutem Zustand. Auch kostenfreier WLAN Zugang war gewährleistet.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen.

If you´d like to have coffee Spanish style, I can gladly explain the use of 'cafetera' waiting in the cupboard for you - but please with Spanish coffee. 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.
