August 2019

Property is in an excellent location with plenty of flexibility for sunbathing (roof terrace, garden, terrace with awning, communal pool), easy access to facilities at San Blas (restaurants, bars, gift shops, supermarket etc). With exception of the second bedroom the property is spacious with good facilities and generally well maintained. Only minor faults we found were; Cleanliness not quite up to standard, we found ourselves washing all the cutlery, plates etc before using which was particularly disappointing as we had been charged an additional £60 cleaning fee for changing the booking from 2 to 4 people with those kind of cleaning charges property should have been immaculate. Poor Wifi during our stay, however we were advised of fault before arrival so should not effect future guests.

From start to finish a very good experience. If anything the details did not do this property justice. The location was ideal, minutes walk from the beaches, bars and restaurants etc. The facilities at the villa were second to none altogether a wonderful week. Thank you.

We really like this complex and the bungalows. They have plenty of space and privacy and are away from the noise and bustle of the main part of the resort. This bungalow was nicely presented, in good order with everything we needed for a peaceful break. The owner gave detailed directions and was flexible with our departure time as no guests had booked to stay following us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back.

Enjoyed our stay in the villa which was very well situated for San Blas shops and restaurants. TV tends to be at the mercy of the internet which had a habit of disconnecting at a crucial moment. Limited hanging wardrobe space but fine for 2 of us, a family might struggle. Shower was good but lacked sophistication, had to be "turned" on or off and hence cold water at the end of a shower, it became a case of hiding behind the shower curtain. Overall we would stay again and as such recommend.

A beginner's guide to renting a villa in the Canaries

Diverse and colourful, The Canary archipelago offers so much more than world-class beaches and year-round sunshine. Even though an occasional snowfall on the highest peaks is possible, ski resorts may be the only thing missing to complete that full all-round experience. Discover the four main islands:

Lanzarote is the most northern island in the archipelago. With yearly sunshine and a gorgeous coastline, explore its lively beach resorts like Playa Blanca and Puerto Del Carmen boasting Blue Flags and crystal-clear azure waters. Discover the lunar landscape in Timanfaya National Park while riding camels, or race your family down the water slides in Costa Teguise aqua park. Couples will find resorts like Charco del Palo and Los Charcones with its tranquil pools are the perfect spots for unwinding.

Fuerteventura is approx. 12km south of the Lanzarote. Sportier types can test their courage here at the annual open water swim Travesiá la Bocaina, from Lanzarote to Fuerteventura. Explore the sand dunes of Fuerteventura, where the turquoise sea kisses the fine desert sands. Visit the historic sites and museums and embrace the islands' local culture and history. Take a family trip to one of the many Blue Flag beaches such as Puerto Lajas, and witness the immaculate natural beauty of the volcanic sands stretching under the sparkling Atlantic.

Gran Canaria is approx. 50km west from Fuerteventura and a popular resort with golfers who make the most of the Canaries' pleasant and stable climate. Discover the lush greenery in Doramas Park and the fine desert sands of Maspalomas. Nestled between these two regions is the scenic Pico de las Nieves, the third highest peak in the Canaries, reaching 1,949m in height. Nature lovers, hikers and cyclists will feel right at home here. Families are spoiled for choice with the numerous water parks and zoos Gran Canaria has to offer.

Tenerife is the largest of the Canaries, situated between La Gomera and Gran Canaria. Apart from basking in the sun with sand between your toes and a cocktail in your hand, there are numerous things to do and see here. The highest peak in Spain, Pico del Teide reaches 3,718m, boasting beautiful views of the palm-lined landscape. For more active holidaymakers and nature lovers the hiking trails, botanical parks and jungle park are a must-see. Out of all the Canary islands, Tenerife offers perhaps the most diverse experience. Visit the colourful markets in Los Cristianos, Torviscas and Santa Cruz for the unique handcrafted gifts and local delicacies. Water parks and zoos like Costa Adeje to the south and Loro Park to the north should keep the kids entertained for hours. Feel the island's energy through its beach bars, live music venues and night clubs where the party only really starts after midnight.
