A lovely apartment in a stunning location right on Las Canteras promenade on the beach. View from the flat is superb. Had a great welcome from Fernando’s brother Luis. Much appreciated welcome pack provided after a long journey. Everything required on the door step. Much preferred this area to the usual haunts maspalomas,etc.
Big thank you to Fernando and Luis.
We stayed for 9 nights at the end of January.
First off, Fernando was great at keeping in touch, responding immediately to any emails. When we arrived, we met Luis, his brother, who was really welcoming and friendly.
The apartment is better than the pictures show, light, very clean, and the view of the beach and the sea is breathtaking.
Everything you could need is within walking distance. The bus station to take you all over the island is ten minutes away, there is a decent shop thirty seconds up the road, the promenade and beach are just outside the building and there are numerous great bars and restaurants within a ten minute walk.
The building is quiet, and over nine days we only saw two other people who lived there.
Brilliant hosts and a lovely apartment in a beautiful city. I would recommend anyone going to Las Palmas to book with Luis and Fernando!
Thanks for a fantastic holiday!
We spent a week in this apartment in mid December. It is situated right on the beachfront of Las Canteras. The apartment was spotless and nicely furnished in minimalist style and filled with light, The lounge and bedroom face directly onto the Atlantic and it was fantastic to open the glass doors and hear the sound of the ocean. The open plan kitchen was fully equipped including a washing machine, hob, oven and fridge freezer. The bathroom had a large walk in shower. We were greeted at the apartment by Luis, the brother of the owner, Fernando. Luis owns a restaurant nearby and invited us to pop in if we had any problems. He explained everything about the apartment to us. Fernando also sent us text messages during our visit to make sure everything was all right. We also enjoyed a lovely meal at Luis’s restaurant, 180 Grados, where we enjoyed delicious home cooked fresh food. The apartment was located near a wide range of restaurants both on the beach and in the nearby town. Fernando gave us a number of good recommendations and we were not disappointed with the ones we tried. I would thoroughly recommend this centrally located apartment to those looking for a city break and beach combined holiday.
The apartment is the best I have ever stayed at. The view from the glass fronted terrace through the double patio doors was amazing. Waking up to the sea ever morning was such a delight. The apartment has everything you could want or need for your holiday and Luis and Fernando are there if you have any problems or questions. The bread, ham and wine for our first meal were greatly appreciated. The washing machine was a definite bonus. The Las Canteras is a great place to stay with more bars and restaurants that anyone could visit, it had an fabulous beach and the promenade which is over 3 miles long is great for walking off those inches. The beach to the right and along a bit is nicer than the one directly outside. If you are interested in water sports you need the beaches along and to the left of the apartment. All in all I would recommend this apartment to any couple or family with a small child. Access is great as the lift is just outside the door.
The view is amazing.
The apartment is great , almost surgically clean on arrival, good quality linen & towels, fully equipped kitchen did I mention the view ? Comfortable bed .
Big balcony. Great location.
Fernando & Luis very easy to deal with
Loved having the small second bedroom as a dressing room/ luggage store.
Supermarket next door - Tasca Galileo , first class bar & tapas nearby .
Only minor negative the hand held shower but not a biggie.
Have already recommended to friends .
Feel sure that they will get the same great welcome that we enjoyed .
Many thanks Fernando.
... to opt for if you want it all... style, location, shops and restaurants nearby and mostly the VIEWS.
This was out third trip back to Canteras Beach and we opted for a slightly larger floor area, higher up. The interior design was optimal and imaginative, Fernando and Luis ( the owners ) were always available for help and local advice, they were a mine of information. On our arrival there was a fruit basket and some other local delicacies waiting for us.
Opening the sliding doors between the living area and the terrace creates a great space. I can imagine fewer nicer things on a sunny day, than having a lunch made of bread from the nearby Granier's bakery with Spanish hams and cheeses and salad, followed by fruit and espresso sitting out on the balcony and listen to the waves on the beach. Highly recommended. Also : try 180 Grados restaurant nearby, run by Luis with a great menu and prices.
We are already planning to return next winter, for longer.
The view makes this apartment. The balcony is lovely. The rest of the apartment is comfortable and has everything you need. Fernando and Luis are very helpful.
There is a lovely walk in both diirections but we preferred to walk towards the auditorium as it was quieter. The No. 17 bus from the auditorium runs regularly to Vegueta, which is worth a visit.
The area is very quiet at night. There are plenty of restaurants, but we didn't find one we really liked. May have been unlucky. Go across to Santa Catalina as well. This is a nice area and good for buses, No 12 to Vegueta and if you want to go to the Botanical Gardens, which are worth a visit, get the 301 from here (Blue Global bus). Also you should visit the Science Museum., which is in Santa Catalina. It's great fun.
