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 panel 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.

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.
Wonderful Gran Canaria
Myself and four friends had an enjoyable week staying at the Villa.
The location was good for us as it was a quite area but situated in equal distance from Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas.
We walked if going to the beach (early to beat the heat) and get a cab back, not expensive and never more than 4.5 euro's.
The facilities at the villa were fine for us, we rarely cooked but it was wonderful having breakfast or an evening drink on the veranda. The pool is small but there is a larger shared pool too if needed.
I would stay here again for sure with the right group of people.
Thumbs up from me.
Thanks you Skye. It was a pleasure having you stay at the villa.
very clean well maintained home away from home villa
There's everything you need at the villa in perfect working order. A cooker , Hob, microwave, washing machine, air con, TV, sun beds, swimming pool... plenty of cups, plates bowls, glasses for your needs, with a large fridge freezer, unlike many other villas.
Compared to all the other villas ive stayed in, in Maspalomas this was by far the cleanest and most well presented with all the facilities advertised there and working. It is a very good size for 6 people, and we were more than comfortable there. The pool is lovely, just the right temperature and well maintained by a very thorough pool guy 2 days a week. He takes his time to ensure he's cleaned both the pool and the gardens on every visit and is really polite.
We were given a warm greeting to the villa despite a very late night arrival, and she was available for assistance throughout the duration of our stay.
I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting a 4-6 person villa in central Maspalomas, excellent value for money. Thank you to the host.
Thank you Marcus. It was a pleasure having your group stay at the villa.
Lovely property - great holiday- will definitely be back - exceeded my expectations
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.
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.
