About Colin

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thanks for the great time we all had at your villa in Gran Canaria. I give a rating of 10/10. We will definitely be booking again." Stephen Moss Aug 2010.

"A fantastic villa, we had a fantastic time, the location was perfect." Tonia Newson Aug 2010.

"Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your villa... the only problem was ... we didn't want to leave. Your villa is absolutely beautiful, we have stayed in villa's on a few occasions now, and this is by far our favorite one.My daughter, who is nearly three years called it the pretty house and on numerous occasions said that she wanted to stay there forever...

The layout of the villa and the facilities such as the privacy of the pool, barbecue, library, sat TV etc made it so easy for us not to even leave the villa..... however the location of the villa was also ideal when we did manage to tear ourselves away from the pool and venture a bit further as all the amenities were within walking distance." Chris Moncrieff April 2012.

Rest and relaxation in a perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent just over a week in this delightful villa and were so happy with our stay we're already looking into next year!

Very well maintained and fitted out to a high quality, the villa was beyond our expectations and provided everything we needed and more for our stay.

The garden and pool was ideal for lounging in a peaceful environment and we took all our meals outside on the verranda.

We were a group of 4 adults and a toddler and would wholeheartedly recommend this villa! Looking forward to coming back again!

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

Owner's Response: 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 also note that you had forgotten the full details of the booking you had made six months prior to arriving and that this affected the start of your holiday. In particular you had not remembered the refundable deposit of €400 which is payable on arrival at the villa and which is returned to you after your stay less the cost of locally provided services. We had specifically outlined this in some detail in advance and in writing to you, before and when you booked the villa, as we do with all our guests before any booking is confirmed. All our offers and quotations clearly indicate the fully inclusive cost of renting the villa for the entire period booked. And finally with regard to why we make air conditioning an optional extra........except for a relatively short but intense period in the hot Summer months, AC is often neither necessary or required, but it does need regular maintenance throughout the year and is always available on request. By charging a small fee to those who require it, we are able to keep the basic rent a little lower for everyone and especcially for those who prefer not to use it. 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.

Fabulous villa, great quite location

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing holiday in this villa. The villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Quite location and not far from the dunes of


The villa is well equipped in the kitchen and the library is an amazing space to find a book or DVD if your having a chill night.

If nightlife is more your thing then your very central to either Maspalomas restaurants or of course playa del ingles. We loved our trips into the yumbo centre on nights then being able to sleep it off during the day in the villa 😎

Will definitely be back

An oasis of calm

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous, relaxing week in an amazingly well equipped villa. We (2 adults, 1 teen and 1 eleven year old) all loved the private salt water pool with Jacuzzi facility and also made full use of the larger shared pool which is for use of residents only and was usually empty as most villa's have a private pool. We picked limes from the garden for our drinks and were happy to self cater as the kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need, including dishwasher, microwave and washing machine! Every where was spotlessly clean and fixtures and fittings were high quality. Maspolamas beach is walkable, and we did go once but quite honestly everything we needed was provided at the villa. Playa des Ingles is nearby for nightlife but, again, we didn't feel the need to venture far. Opposite the villa is a very small shop which was overpriced but ok if you are desperate, head to one of the big supermarkets for more reasonable prices..under 5€ in a taxi. Loved evenings dining on the terrace and relaxing in the beautiful garden. Bev, who cares for the villa, was only a text away and replied to us almost instantly, happy to help us and Colin, the villa owner, was as quick to reply to my emails and could not have been kinder or more helpful. I would highly recommend this villa if you want to totally relax and unwind. We would definitely hire it again.

Nearest Airport
20 Kilometres

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.

Further Details:

Several restaurants, supermarket, shops, bank, car and bike rental outlets within a 5 minute walk.


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Fees No additional mandatory fees


Saturday - generally - prices quoted cover up to 6 people commencing on Saturday. Bookings run for 7 or 14 days. We can occasionally offer alternative changeover days.


The price rates above comprise the 'Basic Rental' of the house. A 25% deposit is payable on reservation and secures your chosen dates with the balance then payable 10 weeks prior to commencement. Credit and debit cards accepted via Owners Direct Direct Booking who add a "Service Fee" of between 4% and 8% calculated on a sliding scale and payable with the initial payment .

Despite the statement "No mandatory fees" next to "Fees" (above), there are actually some additional fees payable, but since they vary and are payable in cash for services provided locally at the villa it has been impossible toitemise them accurately under the Fees headline pricing. To make this simple we ask for a Damage/Cleaning/Utility Deposit of €400 (or £360 ) per booking payable in cash on arrival, from which we deduct these fees before refunding the balance within 2 weeks of your stay..

The fees are the cost of the final clean (including laundry) at the end of your stay (set at €150), and also actual utility usage - electricity, water, rates, and rubbish collection - relating to your visit - usually just under €10 per day. We provide a detailed accounting with the refund of your deposit when you return home.

These variable fees effectively increase the Basic Rental charge quoted above, by approximately €220 euros per week (or about £190 ) and by €290 euros (about £250) per fortnight to give the all inclusive rate per visit - this inclusive price is quoted in any offer or quotation we make for the avoidance of any doubt.

Since they are not always required, Air conditioning (€50 pw or €80 per fortnight) and WiFi (€30 pw or €50 per fortnight) are both optional and may be arranged if required on arrival at the villa.
