Holiday home in Gran Canaria, Islas Canarias, Spain

Hi everyone!
Only five steps and you are in our holiday house. It is a bright, clean and recently renovated apartment. It has one bedroom with two beds (90cm each one that you can put together if you like), a well eqipped kitchen and a living with two beds and sofas (beds: 135 cm and 80 cm). Folding Cot on request. It is a 45m2 apartment, perfect for two people, but it has all you need for four people because we go some weekends and sometime in summer. It is well connected and close to some of the best beaches in Canary Islands.
We use to eat in the balcony, in the shade of the awning. We see the palm trees, Maspalomas Dunes, the ocean... (but, please, don´t think we live in paradise! we also see a hotel and a road). If you don´t like to eat outside, table and chairs can be put inside. The apartments have a swimming-pool and gardens.
The temperature in the Canary Islands use to be nice the whole year but somedays in summer may be hot, so we have installed air conditioning.
On walk you can buy, enjoy yourselves, eat in restaurants, go for a nice walk and of course go to the beach the whole year. We are only 50 m from a minimarket and there is a shopping center near the house (200m) with supermarkets, restaurants, rent a car offices, internet, pharmacy, gym...

Gran Canaria airport code is LPA. The house is near the airport (15 minutes, about 35€ by taxi). There are good buses and taxis to reach the house from the airport and we can order a taxi for you. The bus stop is near the house (200 m). The public transport is really good in all the island. If we make simultaneous exchange we could exchange cars. If we make non simultaneous exchange we try to meet you at the airport and during a weekend we could show you some places if you have no car and you want to explore the island.
Gran Canaria island is 40 km long but it has different types of landscapes (it is called miniature continent) and many activities to have fun (skydive, sight-seeing flights, buggies tours, golf, trekking, camels tours, water parks, surf, windsurf, boat cruises, palmitos park zoo, spas...)  We have information of all these activities in our information pack. You can visit any place in a one day trip.
The capital city of the island is called Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It  is in the north. It is a cosmopolitan city surrounded by beaches. The old town has a colonial and modernist architecture and some interesting museums because a primitive civilization lived in the island until 1478 and Cristopher Columbus stopped here in his journeys.
If you want to travel to other island some of them can be visited in one day.
 Best regards
José Carlos, Lidia, Sergio & Paula
