The villa was a good size for our family of 5, although there were only 4 dining chairs outside. The sun terrace was a good size and a real sun trap in the morning and lovely in the evening. It was very hot but there are plenty of fans, a large sun awning and an outdoor shower. It did get very hot upstairs as the shutters were not in use and there is no ac.
The villa was only a short walk to Patalavaca beach if you are happy to tackle the 274 steps each way! We didn't mind the walk as there were some terrific views. The local beach was brilliant, not too busy, clean waters and good waves. There are a few nice little restaurants behind the beach.
Unfortunately while we were staying there was a major construction project taking place very close by so it was anything but peaceful during the week days, drilling from 9am until 7pm! We were out quite a lot of the time but not somewhere to go if you want to sit and relax in the sun at your villa until construction is completed. As a result of the construction the whole villa was very dusty and in need of a thorough clean.
A nice villa and location, we would consider returning when the construction is complete. The owner was very quick to reply to queries and was generally very helpful.
This is our second time staying at Casa Zen, we loved it so much we had to return. We did browse other similar holiday homes near by but this was again the best for quality, luxury and value. We will definitely be back again. Highly recommended. Perfection!!
Casa zen was the perfect base for our week on Gran Canaria and Margaret was the perfect host from her first welcome message after booking to a lovely message following check out.
We couldn't have been happier.
Casa Zen is exactly the same as the pictures if not nicer. All the bedrooms are a great size (and then some) and there's plenty of room inside and outside on the terrace. The house had everything we needed for a week - and more!!
From the moment we arrived we didn't want to come home.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat - book it you won't be disappointed.
Thank you Margaret for your amazing hospitality, we really do hope to be back again.
Where do I start... Upon arrival my fiance , 13 month old daughter and I were greeted with the warmest of welcomes. We were given a tour of this gorgeous townhouse by the helpful and extremely friendly owner. There was a welcome pack in the kitchen with all your essentials which was perfect as we arrived quite late. I am a keen cyclist and my fiance an enthusiastic Walker so we were delighted to be a 2 minute walk away from the mountains. Most nights we would put our baby to bed in the cot provided after a lovely barbecue and enjoy a nice glass of wine on the terrace as the sun set. My partner particularly enjoyed the relaxing jacuzzi bath. Some mornings we would dine Al Fresco but we also enjoyed being a short walk away from many authentic canarian restaurants on the beachfront.We didnt want to leave but we have already discussed returning for our Honeymoon.

Great holiday everything you need to feel like you are at home. My partner and I stayed in Casa zen in May, it was so relaxing and homely, exactly what we needed to get a break from our usual busy life's I would really recommend this holiday home, would say it is suitable for everyone. My personal favourite thing about the holiday was a nice bbq on the private terrace followed by a nice soak in the jacuzzi with a glass of bubbly. Very welcoming, warm and friendly. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.
I stayed in Casa Zen for 2 weeks in January with my husband and two teenage kids. The house was perfect for us all and I would definitely recommended it to friend's. Margaret made us all very welcome, there was also a little welcome pack which was a lovely little touch. We will definitely be returning to the Casa Zen in the future.
