This apartment offers a haven of tranquility in the centre of a major beach resort which offers activities to suit all tastes, keeping everyone happy through day and night. It is a perfect option for couples who seek a peaceful and relaxing holiday, or those who want somewhere quiet to withdraw to when beach life finishes for the day and the cooling evening breeze blows gently from the sea, as you sit on your balcony overlooking the pool. The building contains only about 20 apartments, all privately owned and used by a few permanent residents and second home owners. There is no reception, as there would be with a tour operator complex, but the owner's representative is available 24 hours a day in an emergency.

The apartment stands out because of its stunning views of the beach, sea and dunes. It is situated directly on the quiet section of the beach promenade which stretches from the centre of the resort to the Riu Palace. The building has direct access from the pool and sunbathing area to the beach promenade. This makes it perfect for a lazy evening stroll and perfect for access to the main beach. There are steps along the promenade at various points, some gently sloping. The steps immediately outside the complex gate, lead down to the Custom supermarket and the beach bars and cafes on the beach. So within minutes of leaving your apartment, you can be on the beach or having a meal on the beach or sipping a cool beer at a bar on the beach. After a hot day on the beach, take a dip in the pool beneath your balcony, which is heated by solar panels to ensure a comfortable temperature all year round.

The stunning views mark this lovely apartment out from the rest. Dont expect the photo to do justice to the views. It strikes you from the moment you open the front door. People have commented that it is like having a beautiful picture at the end of the living room, one which constantly changes, as the sky changes colour, casting shadows on the spectacular dunes, some of which reach 30m in height. Watch from the breakfast bar in the kitchen or sitting in the living room, or dining out on your balcony, and towards the end of the day look out for the parachutists landing on the beach in front of the apartment.

The private ownership of the complex means that the large groups of holidaymakers that can ruin your sleep in any of the offerings from the tour operator holiday brochures are not found here. To maintain this atmosphere, and to respect the others who have made this beautiful place their home for that reason, we only look for bookings from guests that will respect the need for quiet after 11pm.

Playa del Ingles
The stretch of this expansive resort bordering the beach promenade has a quiet charm and incredible beauty, which is quite remote from the bustling commercial centres. They provide fun and entertainment for all, but away from that, in this part of the resort, the evenings are peaceful. Without doubt, the apartment is situated in the most picturesque area, in the first line to the beach promenade, allowing the many visitors to wonder at the beauty of the Sahara-like dunes, for which the area is justifiably famous.

The beautiful beach of fine, golden sand has all the facilities you would expect from one of the largest resorts in Europe. (Geographically, Gran Canaria is located off the coast of West Africa, but it is part of Spain.) You can walk for miles and miles along the beach, as some do, from Playa del Ingles to the Lighthouse of Maspalomas, passing the oasis, a special reserve noted for its wildlife. Buses ferry everyone between Maspalomas lighthouse and Playa del Ingles (and other parts of the island) and the service is frequent and reliable.

Gran Canaria
The island will surprise you, if you want it to...

If you want to do nothing more than rest and relax in the pool and on the beach, enjoy a good meal and a drink with entertainment in the evening, then the apartment will be perfect. The main entertainment centres of the Cita and the Yumbo Centres are less than 10 minutes by foot. The Kasbah, Metro and Plaza centres are 10 minutes away. The smaller La Sandia centre is 5 minutes walk, and then there is the long stretch of restaurants, bars (some with live music) and cafes situated on the beach itself, below the beach promenade, so just minutes from the apartment.

But take a bus to Las Palmas, the large capital and cultural centre of the island and you will experience a completely different aspect of the island. Or take a trip into the islands centre. Hire a car, or book a trip on a guided jeep tour with an experienced driver, who will take you up the winding roads to the top of the mountains, experiencing spectacular views. Drive to the west of the island, the rugged and wild side. Or take a boat trip to the south west, to Mogan. Relatively few venture beyond the sun and sand of the resort. And who can blame them - with the incredible microclimate enjoyed by the south-east of the island throughout the year. But those that do venture beyond will find plenty of rewarding sights and experiences.

On payment of the final balance, you will be given the contact details for the local representative and she may recommend an airport transfer service. Alternatively,the airport bus stops near La Sandia. Details for hire of equipment, such as cots, will also be provided after this point upon request. Airport transfers and equipment hire do not form part of the contract with the apartment owner of course and you must pay her or the provider directly. Detailed arrival instructions are sent to you on payment of the final balance. Note that car hire is really not necessary for this apartment, although there is street parking. It is perfectly located to walk to all amenities. Also, taxis are extremely cheap and readily available in the streets, and the public bus network transports everyone efficiently between the main destinations of the island.

The cost of cleaning and laundry is included in the price you pay. So the price includes the cost of cleaning the apartment in preparation for your arrival and laundry (bed linen, bath and hand towels are provided for your use on arrival). If you wish to have maid service, you are able to book as many extra cleans and changes of laundry with the local representative as you wish, subject to availability. We understand that our guests appreciate the flexibility to have more or less of a maid service during their stay. If you wish to take advantage of additional cleaning and laundry services during your stay, you can pay for this locally by contacting the local representative directly in advance of your stay (a special rate of 15 Euros for laundry and 20 Euros for cleaning). A washing machine is also provided in the apartment for your use.

Bookings of 14 nights or more include one free linen and towel change (but not cleaning) in the middle of your stay.

Your local rep will also be available to deal with your queries and to arrange extra cleaning, island tours, etc, during your holiday. Her mobile number is provided after payment for this purpose, but of course please respect her wish that from 8pm to 9am calls should be of an emergency nature only. Our local rep has provided a great service for our clients for many years.

Bookings can now be made for a minimum of 6 nights. Discounts are available for bookings of 14 days or more: where available these discounts are shown separately when you enter the dates selected and produce a quote through the website.

LATE AVAILABILITY DEALS - discounts are available at many times of the year. These are applied automatically when you enter dates and request a quote through the booking system. But don't expect to find many last minute deals as The Beachfront Apartment is a top seller

People are obviously very anxious to know who they are booking with. Why book with a private owner directly? You deal with the owner as a private individual, not a company. We own four properties for my own use and to rent to guests when we are not using them. You can speak to us by telephone or ask questions by e-mail (we much prefer e-mail, but we always try to make time to speak to guests who want to speak to us in person). Messages sent through the website are sent to the phone and we try to respond as quickly as possible. Once in Gran Canaria, we have an excellent local rep to look after you and the apartment, who is always on hand to help with any questions and is keen to tell you all about the island.

You can also trust the reviews of those who have stayed at the apartment before you (84 of them as at 2021). Please consider taking the time to send a review after your return. The apartment was recently refurbished. The changes include:-

  • redecoration throughout
  • a new double bed (to replace the twin beds) with a medium - firm orthopaedic latex mattress (many of you requested a firm mattress in your comments to us)
  • a new curved screen Samsung Smart TV with Netflix, Prime, Youtube, Rakuten, Disney apps etc), as well as satellite channels on a box (including Sky News, German and French channels) and a collection of DVDs for your quiet nights in
  • a more comfortable L shaped sofa bed (medium-soft)
  • a new bathroom

The apartment is in a fantastic location with beach resort to the front, and yumbo centre etc to the back, both only a short walk away. No night time noise due to this location. Supermarkets also close by. Pictures of view don’t do it justice! Flat very clean and tidy, and had everything we needed including a good shower which apartments sometimes...

I have owned and rented two properties through this website for many years and the properties have proved very popular. The properties are second homes and are treated and furnished as such, but with an eye to being practical for our guests, so that they can enjoy their holiday with some home comforts, like DVDs and CDs. Central to the provision of a great holiday is a great local representative and we are fortunate to have two excellent local property managers. You always have access to the owner by email in any event. All emails are notified to me by text message through the system and I try to respond as soon as I reasonably can. This means a more prompt reply is usually provided than it would be if you were booking with a large company. We are not renting the properties to build a big business, but to cover expenses, which is more difficult to achieve than most people imagine. I am a lawyer and work rather long hours, but I am usually able to respond to emails quickly, albeit often late in the day. I have done my best to provide all the information you need on the website, so do try to look for an answer there before asking a question. Don't forget that people make bookings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so if in doubt reserve the dates you want (without obligation), and ask a question when making your booking reservation. This gives you a day or so to sort out flights and get answers to any questions you could not find answers to on the website.
