Wonderful Villa, so many plus points.

  • 5 of 5

We were expecting a lovely villa from viewing the photographs, however, Villa Elena is even better than the photos. So spacious inside and particularly outside. This is a garden to love. All the amenities we needed. We loved that La Culatta is 300 metres from the villa. The food is good at this restaurant, and the welcome is terrific. We ate there our first and last night, enjoying the Canaries wine too. Milla, the villa owner, is lovely and so helpful. Her English is no better than my Spanish, so if you have questions it is a good idea to write before departing to give her time to translate and reply. There are oranges and lemons in the garden, we used the electric juicer and had fabulous sweet O.J. every day. The villa was spotlessly clean and very homely. There is a Spar in Valsequilla, a mile away which provides everything required. The Hypermarkets are found from the main road between the Airport and Telde. We picked up some milk and bottled water from a filling station after leaving the airport. It was a joy to have no mosquitos, even the flies are small and not very numerous. Our best days out were the Botanical gardens near Zafira, 45 minutes drive via the mountain route, through San Mateo. The views are dramatic. We also liked Arguinegan from where the water taxi departs for Anfi, Puerto Rico and Mogan. There is a Fisherman's Co-Operative restaurant in the port, near where the Water Taxi leaves. The birthday meal we had there was absolutely first class. We had a local fish called Chicharo which was even better than Sole. Super friendly staff too. The front door lock took us a little while to work out. The key needs to be the right way up and pushed in prior to rotating it CLOCKWISE. The door automatically locks when you close it so beware. We like to go to new destinations, but would definitely return to Villa Elena.

LoveLy villa but ...

  • 3 of 5

Villa Ellena is lovely - great house, quiet and spacious. However, the house needs some care and attention to detail, none of which would cost a lot. We left a note for the owner with suggestions. There were no instructions or information about emergency services or how to leave the house at the end of the stay so we hope we left it as expected. We managed to find the village rubbish bins. Three of the main issues in the house are repairing the shower in the family bathroom, sorting out the fridge door shelf so that bottles can be stored and sorting out the front door lock. It was so tough the first day back we thought we were locked out. We were also surprised to find how far up the mountain the villa is. We followed instructions fine but at no time were we told the name of the village. We found it out the first day when we went exploring - Las Vegas. Some people might be daunted by the long drive round the narrow mountain roads. We enjoyed being away from the tourist spots but a bit too far. So mixed feelings.

Owner's Response: Dear Barbara, I thank you for your kind words and your suggestions. We have fixed the flaws that you tell us. The Villa is quiet because it is located in the mountains. On a small island like Gran Canaria, but that receives more than four million visitors a year, if you want to rest I recommend the mountains. You can enjoy the good weather of the Canary Islands and at the same time have a quiet and relaxed holiday.

Pretty house in the mountains

  • 3 of 5

The house and garden was very spacious and the owner was very welcoming, although does not speak any English.

The house was clean and comfortable. However for people who wish to self cater the kitchen was lacking in equipment. Not really enough plates, glasses, dishes etc.

The highlight of our stay is the very friendly and welcoming La Culata restaurant within 2 mins of the house, which served excellent food.

Would recommend this property if you want to stay in the pretty north of Gran Canaria.

Perfect for families with children

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the house. It is absolutely perfect for families with children! Ours are 1,5 and 4 years old and had a wonderful time. Outside area was absolutely child safe and -friendly; with fence around the pool and fence toward street.

Fresh Oranges and Lemons directly from the tree; the juice was wonderful! Plus; the children had a lot of fun picking the fruits (we are from a big city; they only know Oranges from the store ;-)).

Highly recommended if you want a nice stay off the beaten track!

Just as a remark: Pool was too cold to use in February; but we didn't need a pool anyway with the little children.

Nettes Haus sehr schön gelegen

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns 4 Erwachsene 2 Kinder sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist alles da was man braucht. Nur ein paar flache Teller sollten vorhanden sein.

Der Blick auf die Berge ist fantastisch und der Garten mit Orangen Zitronen und

Trauben hat unser Frühstück aufgewertet .
