About Mari Carmen
Hello greetings to all, I have 53 years old, born on the island of Gran Canaria, my profession is a dressmaker, among other things, I am outgoing, extremely curious, wanting to learn every day, I like fishing, sea, music I'm stubborn, I screw up often, but mostly I am good people. If you decide to visit the island are welcome, staying 'or' not in my house. My motto in life is: 'Do not do to anyone what you would not want done to yourself'
Mari Carmen purchased this Condo in 1980
Why Mari Carmen chose Melenara
The apartment is comfortable and spacious, suitable for people who do not like to be in tourist areas. Ideal families, workers etc ...

Easy to park. Close to airport and 10 minutes from the capital. Incorporation in 2 minutes to the main motorway GC-1 Las Palmas-South of the Island Proximity to the best shopping centers of the island

Excellent spacious and clean base for exploring
The property was exactly as described. This is a very well maintained, clean and spacious 3 bedroom flat. The owner, Mari, was extremely friendly and was waiting for us on arrival. She speaks no English but has an iPad translation tool to assist. Definitely be more than happy to select this flat again if going to Gran Canaria.
We would say that this is excellent value for money and possibly almost cheaper than necessary for the size and quality.
There is on street parking and we never had any problem finding a free parking space on the same or an adjacent street.
It is only 5 Kms from the Airport, 0.5km from the main GC1 motorway and 10 Kms from Las Palmas. However there was no noise from either motorway or airport and the apartment was in a quiet residential area. This is totally non-tourist area.
There is a wonderful and very cheap bakery just on the next street and the local shops and petrol station 100m away. There is a large supermarket 2Km up the GC1 motorway.
This is an excellent base for exploring the island. There is a small beach at Melonara less than 5 minutes drive away. To get to Maspalomas is 30 minutes drive down the GC1. From here you can get inland and explore very easily thanks for the easy access to the motorway network.
If there were any criticiscm it would be that the Internet is very slow, although this is due to being on 3G which seems to be the same for most of the island.
There was an issue 1st night with the kitchen losing power. On phoning Mari she was around in less than 10 minutes, then had an electrician the same evening and had a plumber the following morning to make the necessary fixes. Could not have been more attentive and helpful.
Great apartment with a wonderful owner/manager.
Our family (2 adults & 4 kids) stayed here for one week. We were greeted by very wonderful people and liked the laid back atmosphere of the neighborhood. We wanted to stay around the locals and purposefully chose this location away from the very touristy areas. It was very clean and provided everything we needed including lots of towels since we went to the beaches quite a bit. I'm not sure about internet service in the apartment because we weren't able to get a connection so we bought a temporary sim card on the economy at one of the cell phone shops (you'll need your passport) for when we did need to connect. But, a lot of restaurants have free WiFi so it wasn't a problem getting online elsewhere when needed. Great little bakery nearby (and other little food shops, gas station, bank/ATMs, etc.). There was also an Alcampo (supermarket, home store, electronics, and more) that had a lot of other shops in the area surrounding it (bowling, restaurants, etc.) that was a very short drive away where we were able to get just about everything we needed for groceries and more. This apartment is also very close to the airport. Trying to find the apartment took a little time at first but once we did, it was fine after that (just be aware of the one way streets). We enjoyed our stay here very much and would definitely stay here again. Our only regret is not staying a little bit longer. :-) Enjoy...
Great sunny holidays
I must say the apartment was well worth its price. Comfortable stay for 6 people, every amenity you could think of. Clean and well equipped it was a real nest you wanted to come back to after a busy day. We had two cars rented and there was always free parking space available close to the apartment.
The owner is a lovely and heart-warming person, trying to accommodate you in every regards. We really wish to come back there again :)
Appartment in Telde, Melenara
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this appartment, and our interactions with the owner were most pleasurable. The rooms are ample, and all the linens, kitchen utensils, etc., were provided. The appartment is extremely clean and well taken care of, as are all its contents. It is very easy to get to various destinations by bus from this area, and markets, pharmacies, bakeries, places to eat, etc., are all close by. This was our first experience abroad with an appartment, and it will definitely not be our last. *****Este apartamento es muy amplio, y se ve que siempre se mantiene muy limpio y muy cuidado. Fue un verdadero placer conocer a la duena, que fue muy amable con nosotros. El lugar es tranquilo, y tiene muy cerca lugares para comer, mercados, farmacias, panaderias, etc. La parada de autobuses tambien esta cerca y es muy facil orientarse para ir a diferentes lugares. Definitivamente recomendamos este apartamento y esperamos poder volver en un futuro.
Mis más sinceras gracias y mi cariño, para las buenas personas que han pasado por mi casa, donde siempre seran bienvenidos de nuevo.
Este trabajo me gusta mucho y lo hago con todo mi amor, siento que voy formando una familia alrededor del mundo, muchos de ellos han vuelto de nuevo y eso es un orgullo para mi.
Saludos y muchas gracias por haber confiado en mí, que la salud y la suerte los acompañen.
My sincere thanks and my love for the good people who have been through my house, where they are always welcome back.
I love this job and do it with all my love, I feel I'm building a family around the world, many have returned again and that's an honor for me.
Greetings and thank you very much for trusting me, health and luck accompany them.
Excellent accomodation in El Calero
We had a very good stay in this very nice appartment in El Calero (Telde). The landowner is very nice, answer any questions very fast and did everything she could to welcome us and make our stay as good and reliable as possible.
The appartment is large, have nice bedrooms for privacy and is equipped well. Big bathroom with enough warm water and a fast WIFI. We stayed for a cycling training camp, and it´s a very good location to start your ride, either you want to go into the mountains or find more flat rides.
The appartment has an excellent garage for bike parking which make things very easy.
You´ll find good grocery stores, bakeries, bars , and cafes in close proximity. It´s even fairly close (a couple of km of walk or run) to very nice beach towns (ie. Melenara) that many tourists don´t realize exist beacause it´s much more usual to go further down south. These beachtown, however, are more pitoresque , with great sand beahes, palmes and cozy cafes.
If you are more into shopping, it´s just a bus stop or two away from large shopping centers.
It´s of course a very dense inhabited place in Gran Canaria and close to the grand highway GC1, so one should be prepared for a bit of traffic noise, even in the night.
In total, a very nice accomodation that I reccomend highly.
Tres bon séjour
Excellent séjour dans l'appartement de Mari Carmen qui est très accueillante. Appartement très propre et bien équipé, au calme dans un quartier facile d'accès, proche de tout pour visiter l'île et avec une jolie plage à moins de cinq minutes en voiture. Pas vraiment de terrasse pour profiter de l'extérieur c'est le seul bémol, (c'est un appartement de ville) mais l'excellent rapport qualité/prix compense largement ce petit manque. Merci encore Mari !
Muchas gracias a Danielle y Joseph por su estancia, son personas amables y cercanas, muy limpios y cuidadosos con la casa.
Personas como ellos hacen muy facil este trabajo, cuando decidan volver estaré encantada de recibirlos nuevamente.
Un abrazo para los dos
