Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, Your Home Away From Home

Maspalomas is arguably the oldest tourist town in Gran Canaria, and is situated on the southern part of the island. With its stunningly beautiful beaches, it is not hard to see why holidays in Maspalomas are becoming increasingly popular. Although there are many hotels here, it is far better to rent a villa a little farther out from the town. Self catering accommodation in Maspalomas is of the highest standard, and acts as a good base to enjoy a wonderful vacation which is centred on beach activities.

Things to Do on Holiday in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

Activities whilst on holidays in Maspalomas are mainly centred on either the beach or the sea. This is hardly surprising, given just how beautiful it is! A full range of water-based leisure activities are available such as water skiing, windsurfing, snorkelling and much more. The impressive sand dunes offer camel rides, which make for a fun few hours, and there is also a golf course as well, with the dunes and ocean providing an incredible backdrop.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

Maspalomas itself has very little culture attached to it. Sure, there are bars, restaurants and taverns, but those seeking a little history will be disappointed. Instead, holidays in Maspalomas are more suited to those who like modern, fun diversions. The biggest water-park on the island is to be found just outside the town, and its many waterslides and features will keep people of all ages entertained. An ornithological park has many species of butterflies and orchids, and quite randomly, there is a wild west theme town called Sioux City.

Weather in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

The excellent weather is one of the main attractions of considering holidays in Maspalomas. As with the rest of the canary Islands, the weather seems to be perfect all of the year round. It very rarely drops below and average of 14 degrees Celsius at night, even during what is laughingly called the winter, and the day time high averages are consistently above twenty degrees. The hottest months of July, August and September see average temperatures of 27 degrees Celsius. There is virtually no rainfall here, and although January is the wettest month, there are barely more than 6 days when it rains, and the average for the month is just 34 mm.

Travel to Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

Most tourists on holidays in Maspalomas will arrive by air, and will land at Gran Canaria Airport (LPA). This airport is the fifth busiest in Spain, which is a testament to just how popular Gran Canaria is. One curious fact, is that the extra-long runways mean that it was an alternative landing place for the Space Shuttle. Assuming you are not arriving by Space Shuttle, however, you will be flying on one of the dozens of airlines that land and take off here every week. These include easyJet, Monarch, Jet2, Thomson Airways and BMI Baby. Fly from UK airports such as East Midlands (EMA), Exeter (EXT), Newcastle(NCL), Birmingham (BHX), Cardiff (CWL) and Glasgow (GLA).

                                                                                                      We were met by Maria's son, David. His English is excellent, he showed us round the complex and house and explained everything for us, wifi, hot water, remember to ask him where to put your rubbish!! The house itself is faultlessly spotless and superbly equipped (so much so, we hope we put everything back where it belongs)! The kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need, there's even a hand blender, great for cocktails! Basics, such as salt, pepper, basic herbs, sugar, etc, are all provided, making cooking in very easy. There is a new supermarket just a five minute walk around the corner, Mercadona. Great fresh butcher, fishmonger, deli counters and everything else you'd need. The rest of the house has everything you could possibly need too. Great space for everyone and the extra bathroom was a huge bonus. It's a good fifteen minute walk to the promenade in Meloneras and a good forty five minute walk up to Playa Del Ingles but both very easy walks if you don't mind walking. However, it's only €5 in a taxi up to Playa if you wanted to have a night up there. It's probably about the same again, a little less from Meloneras back to the house. Although it may seem as the house is out of the way, it's really not, especially if you like a little peace and quiet. The complex itself is great. Unfortunately it wasn't pool weather at Christmas it was very comfortable on the terrace at the back. Again the place is spotless, not a bit of litter lying around, even the road was immaculate. Our only issue was the neighbours, I think also in a holiday rental. They were quiet noisy, especially coming and going, but to be fair, the gate next door could do with being looked at. I would thoroughly recommend the house, its great value. Much more spacious than a tourist complex and in many cases, much, much cleaner. Thanks to Maria for letting us have the house, it may be a while before we're back in GC but I would definitely try to book this again. Try the Indian on the prom, fantastic. Avoid, Cafe Del Mar, trendy bar on prom, very expensive for what you get, don't order Baileys!! You'd be bitterly disappointed.
