About Colin

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thanks for the great time we all had at your villa in Gran Canaria. I give a rating of 10/10. We will definitely be booking again." Stephen Moss Aug 2010.

"A fantastic villa, we had a fantastic time, the location was perfect." Tonia Newson Aug 2010.

"Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your villa... the only problem was ... we didn't want to leave. Your villa is absolutely beautiful, we have stayed in villa's on a few occasions now, and this is by far our favorite one.My daughter, who is nearly three years called it the pretty house and on numerous occasions said that she wanted to stay there forever...

The layout of the villa and the facilities such as the privacy of the pool, barbecue, library, sat TV etc made it so easy for us not to even leave the villa..... however the location of the villa was also ideal when we did manage to tear ourselves away from the pool and venture a bit further as all the amenities were within walking distance." Chris Moncrieff April 2012.

very clean well maintained home away from home villa

  • 5 of 5

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.

The villa was very nicely presented, in a quiet location, but near all the usual amenities

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lost count now on number of visits to the island but every time we stay at the villa the holiday is very special. Comfortable, quiet and spacious for all our friends and guests.

The private pool and garden is a great place to unwind and the terrace is great for entertaining.

The management team make renting this home from home so easy.

Beautiful Hacienda style villa

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Hacienda style villa is set in a quiet location, benefitting from a lovely private garden and pool.

The villa has everything you need for a comfortable stay and really feels like home.

The beach is 15-20 min walk away and has gorgeous beach side restaurants, bars and shops. There are also some more lovely restaurants and bars just 5 minutes away with a well stocked supermarket.

This is our 2nd visit to the villa and we will definitely be returning. We cannot fault it at all ❤️

Did the job for October sun

  • 3 of 5

The villa is in the middle of a strange place and walk five minutes up the road to the local supermarket and you will see the infrastructure is beginning to crumble. The mini supermarket opposite stocks a small range of things but don't go in there with kids as the adult section has a full range! I had forgotten about the 400 euros needed to be provided to the lady who looks after the villa upon arrival as this was not mentioned again after I had booked over six months before. This didn't start the holiday well. Maspolomas seafront has some nice restaurants which is about 20mins on foot and the tapas place through the alley opposite the villa was also good. The villa could have been a little cleaner and charging for the use or not of the air conditioning seems ridiculous and most of the charges should just be added to the hire costs when first booking. I can only speculate why this is not done! The water park was great and I would recommend this for families

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Andrew. I was sorry to see some of your reactions.You say the villa is in a 'strange area' - it is in fact situated on a quiet palm tree lined avenue (in Campo International) in the very centre and heart of Maspalomas with all major holiday amenities situated very close by and roughly equidistant. This affords a little peace and isolation from the noisier commercialized parts of the different holiday zones, especially late at night, and yet they too remain easily accessible if required.. I am also sorry that you had forgotten the full details of our deposit rebate arrangements which you had signed off on, and which were highlighted when you booked the villa. We do try our absolute best in all our advance correspondence, advertising and literature to ensure all our guests are fully aware of everything in advance.

Nearest Airport
20 Kilometres
Las Palmas Gran Canaria

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.

Further Details:

Several restaurants, supermarket, shops, bank, car and bike rental outlets within a 5 minute walk.

Additional pricing information

Final Clean & Laundry £150


The inclusive rental price comprises two elements – the Basic Rental Price and a one off fee for the Final Clean and Laundry at the end of your stay (£150). All other services are included in the weekly rental price; Water and Electricity (£64 pw), Community Charges, Rates and Insurance (£32 pw), Security System and WiFi (£31 pw) , Garden and Pool Maintenance and cleaning (£73 pw).

There are no other mandatory fees although air conditioning is an optional extra available for €50 per week or €80 per fortnight.


Saturday - generally - prices quoted cover up to 6 people commencing on Saturday. Bookings run for 7 or 14 days or longer (negotiable). We can occasionally offer alternative changeover days.


We do however also ask for a damage deposit of €150 payable in cash on arrival. This deposit is returned to you in full immediately after your stay and in any case no later than 2 weeks after you have vacated the villa - providing no serious damage has occurred to the villa or its fixtures and fittings.


For all bookings made prior to June 11th 2018 the charges for the Final Clean and utilities will still be charged separately and deducted from your deposit of €400 payable in cash on arrival. Your original offer will have quoted a slightly lower basic rental charge to compensate for this. For the avoidance of any doubt the original offer letter which you received when booking remains completely valid stating the actual price and terms of your rental. Overall, the prices are the same as those quoted in our new system .
