The Captain's house is in a traditionally painted old Canarian village house, which has been re-modelled in a simple and elegant style and set up as a home, not just as a rental property (as all our properties are - please see our website Hamilton Holiday Houses). It makes a well equipped really comfortable home from home and relaxing place to stay. It also has a large roof terrace with a kitchenette, retractable awning, for roof top living, as well as a full kitchen downstairs.

Ideal for two persons seeking that romantic holiday, it can also expand by using the sofa bed, and taking the separate apartment / studio, into a great base for a family holiday. Puerto de Mogan has a safe sandy beach with calm, clear water, fresh water showers, and sun-beds and umbrellas if you want them. Ideal for children and great for swimming, and just a...

Booked the Captain's House for a week in August. Arrived by taxi and found the house in no time. Across the main square and up a little hill stood our home for the first week of our holiday in Gran Canaria. Ground floor consisted of lounge/dining/kitchen open plan & shower/toilet room. Didn't use this part of the house much apart...

How to get there
Airport: Las Palmas: 21.7 mi
Ferry: Las Palmas: 31.1 mi
There are budget and charter flights from London Gatwick and other regional airports in the UK to Las Palmas airport on Gran Canaria several days per week and it is not necessary to stay for whole weeks. Las Palmas is a modern, user-friendly airport. Flight time is about 4.5 hours from London Gatwick.

The Canaries are in the same time zone as UK.

There is a bus service from the airport to Puerto de Mogan but, if you are not hiring a car, we recommend taking a taxi. Taxis from Las Palmas airport cost around 70 euros for 3-4 people and luggage. As the House and Apartment are not accessible by car the taxi will drop you off by the village square, which is about 75 yards away. If you would like to pre-book a taxi from the airport through our local agent the cost is about 60 euros.
