Villa in the heart of Maspalomas, - self contained, Secluded, Quiet, Private,
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.
Colin purchased this Villa in 2007

Excellent two week break at Paraiso Golf
Excellent communication from Colin during the booking experience and from Bev during our stay.
Overall the villa was great. Pool although a little small is warm and the jacuzzi feature is fab. And is complemented by the communal pool which is rarely used by others!
Great modern kitchen with all appliances and crockery that you will need. We had some lovely lunches and meals out on the veranda in the sunshine surrounded by a lush garden. We even picked some limes from the tree for our evening gin! And were given some mango from the neighbour.
The only negatives were that there was no WiFi available until day 8 of our 14 day holiday - fine for the adults but not so for our 11 year old. It would have been good to have been told in advance of this since we understood that it’s been an issue for months. However when it was fitted it was super fast and great. The other negative and not a fault was the lack of BBQ due to the wild fires. This is something we of course love on holiday and missed it - again it would have been nice to be told before we arrived but understand (even though the neighbours next door had regular bbq’s!).
All in all a wonderful stay in a very well located villa. Thanks Colin and Bev. Hopefully see you again.
Thanks for your comments and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. With regard to the WiFi - the system was unavailable during your stay as new high frequency cables were laid by Movistar/Telefonica to upgrade the entire area and as such was outside our control and also running behind schedule. The WiFi should have been operational on July 19 and we literally did not know from day to day when it would finally be up and running - happily we now have a new and much improved 21st century connection ! I am afraid we no longer offer a barbecue for guests - we have however no objection to guests bringing in and using temporary portable barbecues,
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paraiso Golf, lovely villa inside and out
A very relaxing, peaceful week spent at Paraiso Golf. Beverley was extremely helpful throughout the whole process of booking, transfers and the one minor issue with the oven, which was remedied on the day of the issue. The villa itself was perfect for our group of six. The only minor disappointment was the lack of the internet throughout our stay, but would definitely recommend to family and friends.
Having a golf course on the door step was a perfect addition to our stay for an avid golfer!!
Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately your stay coincided with the period when Movistar/Telefonica were upgrading the internet high fibre cabling in the Maspalomas area. This project has now been completed and the internet service is now up and running as of 28 August 2019 and the service is much improved. We apologise for not providing an internet service during your stay, but the internet is now once again fully functional, and better than before.
We had a restful time . The outside shaded area by the pool was lovely. Particularly enjoyed Melonares. Taxis cheap and plentiful.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the villa. You are welcome anytime.
We cannot thank Colin enough for his understanding over my husband illness during the time of proposed stay.
Excellent communications at all times
Great Location with all the amenities.
My family of 5 enjoyed our stay, the villa had everything we needed and was ideally located near restaurants, shops and the beach. The only reason not a 5 star is the pool never got above 65 degrees so we did not use it. The pool is solar powered and we had great weather so was expecting it to be warmer. Beverly was very friendly and knowledgeable and even adjusted her schedule to greet us, after I got myself lost locating the villa ( directions provided were spot on) my poor sense of direction caused the delay:) .
Beautiful, clean and fully equipped
Loved our stay here. The villa has everything you could possibly need. The location is good and only a few minutes drive from the beach of nightlife. Ideal for couples or families the pool is the cherry on the top.
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.
