Fantastic apartment with awesome sights of the Western coast of Gran Canaria and the island of Tenerife. Just on the seaside, it's just you and the ocean. Very nice weather during the whole year, and absolute peace, far away from massive touristic developements.

Mountain views and whale watching

  • 3 of 5

The views from the terrace are just fabulous, and it's a big terrace looking down onto the crashing waves, with views of Tenerife on a cloudless day.

Our only concern was the 50 steepish steps down to the apartment. All your food/beer or wine has to be carefully taken down all these steps and any rubbish carried all the way back up. No issues if you're fit & young.

The apartment was spotlessly clean. It's basic but does have a full size oven and four rings, also a big fridge freezer which is a huge help especially if like us you tend to cook your own meals. We were here for four weeks.

The bed is a brick base with a mattress on top, not the comfiest I must admit. There's a washing machine in the shed on the terrace and a big clothes airer to dry clothes on the terrace ( you need to peg them on as it's usually windy)

The tv was a huge disappointment, Sky news and a French news channel were the only ones in English, it's set up for German guests. Wifi is ok.

Shower small but good.

We spent most evenings on the terrace, there's no restaurant or bars to walk too.

The complex seems to be mainly residents, a couple of our neighbours had small dogs that they let bark sometimes, which was just a shame. Plus one of our neighbours constantly whistled to caged song birds which for us was very annoying especially as we stayed for the four weeks.

The swimming pool is a nice size but unheated, so too cold for our stay.

Overall, if the steps don't bother you, I would recommend this apartment. It was a great price with amazing views, plus we regularly saw spouts from whales passing by.

There is a ferry that you can visit Tenerife for the day, which you see from the terrace and is only a 20 minute drive away. You will need a car here.

The owner Jesus was really helpful. He met us on arrival and carried our suitcase down, and he only lives 15 minutes away.

What a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

In short: if you want to be alone with the ocean, yet in a couple of minutes driving from the civilization - this is the place to go.

It's a fantastic combination of the wild nature and comfort. You choose the ratio. Go 10 meters outside and find yourself on the cliff with wild waters beneath, climb down and when the water is low you can bath in fresh natural pools together with colourful fish, stars and urchins. During the high water you can swim in either a "reinforced" natural (100 meters walking) or a completely "artificial" pool (in the same apartment complex). Sardina beach is in 2min by car. Or you can close all doors and windows and enjoy absolute quietness in a very comfortable and spacey apartment.

Practical things. The closest shop ("Spar") is in Sardina (5min by car). In the apartment there's pretty much everything you might need (I wish the Internet provider increased the network speed a bit, though ;) ). The parking is outside of the complex, you can't drive up to the apartment door, so be prepared to carry you luggage ~6 meters downstairs (upstairs if you are going back) and 50 meters "horizontally" ;)

Thanks much to the Angel and Elena! This is the best view out of the window we've ever had!

Quiet, sunny place

  • 4 of 5

We were greeted by Angel, who was a fabulous host even sending us messages to recommend different restaurants and places of interest. The apartment was basic but the stunning views more than made up for this. We had a fantastic week.

Amazing place to stay for a lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the apartment were spot on. We fell asleep listening to the ocean crash against the rocks, it was so great! This is a perfect location if you want to get away from the tourist area, but still a great spot to see the island. Angel was a perfect host and helped with whatever we needed to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Highly recommended.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

At first we enjoyed the most beautiful view from the terrace at every time of day.

The apartment was well furnished and nice for three persons.

We used the swimming pool very often - excellent!

Many thanks to our renter "Angel", he was very friendly and helpful all the time.

It was a brilliant vacation!
