Maspalomas, Gran Canaria - Exclusive Area of San Agustin, 10 Min Stroll to Beach and all Amenities
A 3 bed-roomed villa with its own private solar heated pool and fully air-conditioned, situated 15 minutes from the airport in the exclusive area of San Agustin.
The villa is just a short walk from all local facilities, which include three supermarkets, restaurants, car rental, bus stops and taxi services. The small bay of San Agustin provides a safe beach with calm waters and is reached by strolling to the end of the road. San Agustin is mostly residential and is therefore quieter than Playa Del Ingles and Puerto Rico affording you the opportunity of a very relaxing environment in which to spend your holiday.
Should you wish to take advantage of the nightlife at Playa Del Ingles, the Yumbo Centre and Maspalomas they are just a 5 minute taxi ride away.

Very comfortable and beautifully designed and furnished. Lovely quiet location.
Lots of space inside and out. Great films to watch after days out. Love the view. Easy to get to the beach shop and buses.
Thank you for your lovely comments and it is really re-assuring to know we are doing the right thing.
We would really like see you again in the not too distant future.
Secure private villa with everything you could need
I rented this property in April 17 as a quiet retreat for the family (children 7 & 10) and it didn't disappoint. From the smooth transfer arranged by the owner to the return back to the airport at the end of the week, everything was perfect. Bev met us on arrival at the villa to explain everything and she was so lovely and helpful. The pool is cleaned during the week and loads of towels are available for use (both beach and 'nice' ones). We covered the pool every night and this kept the temperature at a nice even 30 degrees 🤗� The sky plus was an added bonus and there are lots of dvds to choose from if you fancied a movie night. Decor-wise, it was like living in one of the ikea showrooms; it made me want to redesign my own home!
We made use of the free bus to visit the crocodile park and had a fantastic time. It left at 10:35 from the shopping centre in San Agustin and retuned to the park at 2pm for the return journey. Price of entry was very reasonable (around 35 euros for a family of four) and food in the restaurant was very good. The only negative was that we wanted to stay longer but couldn't because we had to catch the bus back!
The local shop is a 10 minute walk away and there is even a shopping trolley in the villa so you don't have to carry the heavy water (and wine) back up the hill. The beach is just over the road from the shop but to be honest we didn't bother going as the villa had everything we needed. We took a taxi to nearby Playa del Ingles which was about a 15 minute ride but only cost 6 euros (each way). That has a McDonalds for anyone interested 🍔� (I blame the kids).
I really can't praise the villa enough. If you are looking for a nice quiet location and a place that feels like home from home, then look no further. I discovered that there are not many reviews because the people who go return year after year. Perhaps its like a best kept secret - very wise! I will break the silence and share how wonderful it is. Hopefully there will still be a week free for us to return!
Villa Escondida is one of the best villas we have stayed in, it has everything you may require for an excellent holiday. The villa is very clean and very well appointed. The two main bedrooms are quite spacious and the beds are very comfortable, we enjoyed having our first morning cup of tea sitting on the balcony, looking at the sea! The pool is heated to a lovely temperature and as we were lucky with the weather, we made full use of it, even the beach/pool towels were provided! There are plenty of sunloungers or reclining chairs to sunbathe by the pool or If you want quiet moments there are several areas around the villa where you can relax or read in peace, in the sun or shade.
I would have been nice to have had use of a barbecue and also free WiFi but to be fair we did not miss it that much. We hope to have the opportunity to holiday in this beautiful villa again.
Wow what a lovely review thank you for all your comments as we do try hard to make the villa as comfortable and equipped as possible. We do holiday at villa escondida a lot and generally spend our time there making sure that the standard is maintained and hopefully that we have thought of everything.
We do hope to see you again and I think this review deserves at least a bottle of champagne on your next visit!
Comfortable, Clean and great weather
We had an absolutely wonderful time, which was enhanced by the very comfortable accommodation and great weather. We had friends staying in Las Palmas, and we visited them there, and I must say that all things considered we had a far nicer place than they did. We will definitely be recommending this villa.
Thank you for giving us such a good review and we will wait to hear from you and your friends - if you can talk them into it..... Regards Lea
Villa Escondida is in a perfect location
Villa Escondida was just what we wanted. It is in the perfect location on the edge of everything, but outside the hustle and bustle. You can easily walk anywhere in Maspalomas from the villa. It has true heart and style, plus the terraces and views are outstanding. It is so relaxing that all we wanted to do was sit on the terrace by the pool, chill out, and watch the world go by. Also, I highly recommend the mini supermarket at the end of the road, which has almost everything you need. We had excellent communications throughout and felt that the owners really cared about our needs and our enjoyment. This villa has made it onto my official list of happy places.
Again we have made someone happy! It is also on our list of happy places and I loved the way you put that. Hopefully we will see you again and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Total relaxation in 5 minutes
From the minute we arrived the feeling of relaxation ebbed from the villa. Beverley was there to meet us and she was so helpful throughout our holiday that we wished we could bring her home with us. You have thought of everything to make any quest feel at home with all needs catered to.
We loved the fact that all the attractions were so close but that they were equally distant enough for us to come away from. The pool is really the icing on the cake and we didn't really stray far from the villa as we had everything we needed.
We have already highly recommended your villa to all of our friends and family, thank you.
Wow what a review! I couldn't have put it better myself and thank you very much for taking the time to give us your thoughts
The nearest beach is a 10 minute stroll to the end of the road, where you will find the sheltered bay of San Agustin. There is a beautiful promenade which will take you right to Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, but if you want to stay in the bay there is a wonderful beachside restaurant to cater for all your needs.
Las Palmas airport is 15 minutes by car.
There are many towns a little further on down the coast road and these offer facilities for all tastes. If you are hiring a car there are wonderful villages and mountain ranges to explore, where you will experience the more original parts of Gran Canaria.
The local supermarket is a 5 minute walk away and there are 2/3 local restaurants, a car hire office, (although this is not necessary) a hairdressers and the small hospital that services this part of the island. There are always taxis available outside the hospital and there are main buses on the coastal road to take you in either direction of the island.
