Ideally situated, the villa is a short walk from the sand dunes, the protected lagoon and the long beautiful Maspalomas beach which stretches along the coast from the nearby Faro lighthouse as well as the cafes and shops of Melonares. It is a stunning private upmarket hacienda style villa with TV/DVD/WiFi/stereo etc, and features an expansive garden (perfect for sunbathing) including its own private solar heated swimming pool with jacuzzi feature, landscapped with bougainvillea, flowers and shrubs. Yet all the modern facilities (restaurants, supermarkets, taxis etc) may be found less than a 5 minute walk. The villa is a 3/4 minute drive from the busy nightlife of the Yumbo, Cita and Kasbah centres in Playa del Ingles as well as close to all the main holiday attractions; Holiday World Fairground, Aqualand, Sioux City, Perla Canaria, Go Karting, Jeep Safaris and Camel tours. The main Maspalomas golf course is a 2 minute stroll from the front door!

The villa is my personal holiday home. It is available on a tenancy basis for part of the year; and is therefore not simply a holiday rental as such. I am retired from a career in the music business and have recently completed a postgraduate degree in literature and drama from Kings College, University of London. I have been a regular visitor to Gran Canaria for over 30 years.

The villa was very nicely presented, in a quiet location, but near all the usual amenities
We stayed at Villa Paraiso for a week and had a very relaxing break. Bev picked us up from the airport and dropped us back at the end of the week, which meant we had no stresses trying to find the place. She also explained the villa procedures to us, which are also all written down clearly in the information pack in the lounge. The pool was great to cool off in, and we all had great fun playing volleyball with the inflatable net and ball - a great idea. It was also nice to have a bigger, communal pool to swim in, which was also very quiet. We also liked the pretty garden and the lemon and orange trees made it feel very exotic to us! We ate out a bit - it's a nice 15 - 20 minute walk to the restaurants by the beach, and we went to the nearby El Nublo restaurant, which was recommended by previous guests. This was well worth it, as the staff were very friendly and attentive and gave us numerous freebies, such as a free jug of sangria!
We had a day trip to the mountains, which was organised by Bev and Santi, our (fortunately!) very experienced driver. This was lovely, as it felt like being shown around by two friends, and we had a lot of fun. Bev even stopped at a shopping centre for us on the way back, so we could pick up some pressies for people back home.
Altogether our stay was very relaxing, the villa was well supplied with kitchen utensils and facilities, and we would easily return again.
Thank you Susan for your kind words. We enjoyed having you stay at the villa and you are welcome anytime.
Lost count now on number of visits to the island but every time we stay at the villa the holiday is very special. Comfortable, quiet and spacious for all our friends and guests.
The private pool and garden is a great place to unwind and the terrace is great for entertaining.
The management team make renting this home from home so easy.
Beautiful Hacienda style villa
This beautiful Hacienda style villa is set in a quiet location, benefitting from a lovely private garden and pool.
The villa has everything you need for a comfortable stay and really feels like home.
The beach is 15-20 min walk away and has gorgeous beach side restaurants, bars and shops. There are also some more lovely restaurants and bars just 5 minutes away with a well stocked supermarket.
This is our 2nd visit to the villa and we will definitely be returning. We cannot fault it at all ❤️
Thank you Natalie. It has been a pleasure hosting you at the villa.
Did the job for October sun
The villa is in the middle of a strange place and walk five minutes up the road to the local supermarket and you will see the infrastructure is beginning to crumble. The mini supermarket opposite stocks a small range of things but don't go in there with kids as the adult section has a full range! I had forgotten about the 400 euros needed to be provided to the lady who looks after the villa upon arrival as this was not mentioned again after I had booked over six months before. This didn't start the holiday well. Maspolomas seafront has some nice restaurants which is about 20mins on foot and the tapas place through the alley opposite the villa was also good. The villa could have been a little cleaner and charging for the use or not of the air conditioning seems ridiculous and most of the charges should just be added to the hire costs when first booking. I can only speculate why this is not done! The water park was great and I would recommend this for families
Thank you for your comments Andrew. I was sorry to see some of your reactions.You say the villa is in a 'strange area' - it is in fact situated on a quiet palm tree lined avenue (in Campo International) in the very centre and heart of Maspalomas with all major holiday amenities situated very close by and roughly equidistant. This affords a little peace and isolation from the noisier commercialized parts of the different holiday zones, especially late at night, and yet they too remain easily accessible if required..
I am also sorry that you had forgotten the full details of our deposit rebate arrangements which you had signed off on, and which were highlighted when you booked the villa. We do try our absolute best in all our advance correspondence, advertising and literature to ensure all our guests are fully aware of everything in advance.
Really lovely villa in quiet area (but not so quiet you cant be out late!) Nice pool and garden is a sun trap which is fab if like me you want to tan! Stocked with all basic things you need. Had a fab time there.
Wonderful stay. Many happy hours around the pool.
Everything we needed was there. Very comfortable indeed. A great property, didn't really need a car. Would love another visit.
Special interest holidays:
Fishing and sailing from the port of Mogan about 20 minutes drive.
Main beaches of Maspalomas and Melonares about 5 - 10 minutes walk.The beach at Maspalomas stretches for about 7 km along the coast, backed up by the largest area of sand-dunes in Europe, skirted by restaurants and small bars along its entire length but retaining its essential natural beauty. The nearby lagoon, like the dunes, is a protected area for wildlife, rare plants and birds, and water teeming with fish. Perfect for long walks along the coastline and spectacular views of the mountains.
Las Palmas airport is 15 to 20 minutes by car or taxi.
The villa is in a quiet and residential area in the centre of the most upmarket part of the holiday resort of Maspalomas. Surrounded by palm lined avenues, the villa is within a few minutes walk or drive of all the attractions Gran Canaria has to offer.
Several restaurants, supermarket, shops, bank, car and bike rental outlets within a 5 minute walk.
