We, a mature couple from Russia, stayed in this apartment for nearly 2 months, and would be happy to extend our stay if we could, because we were absolutely happy in Sawadi House and felt very sorry to leave. The apartment is better than described - very roomy, spotlessly clean, ingeniously decorated with lots of beautiful Oriental art pieces, plus comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and 2 nice spacious bathrooms. But the real jewel is a charming large terrace overlooking most of Las Palmas as far as the ocean, the port, and even La Isleta. We spent many very pleasant hours on this terrace with some wine and excellent food. We will never forget it, and would love to return one day. The location is quite good, the neighbourhood is calm, nice-looking and absolutely safe. Several cafés, restaurants and commercial centers are at a walking distance, a large supermarket Mercadona is just across the street. The owner Javier is a perfect host, he greeted us with lots of valuable and tasty compliments, and made sure we are absolutely comfortable during our stay. The communication with Javier was seamless both before our arrival and all the way during our stay. Overall, this property is highly recommended both for short and long stays in Gran Canaria.
Javier is a great host who goes above and beyond to make his guests feel welcome. He provided a generous welcome pack which for us included wine, pate, ham and cheese. Everything you would want is in the apartment including those often elusive items like dishwasher tablets, kitchen towel and spare toiler paper. Javier kept in touch during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed. For those without a car, the apartment is a 25 minute bus ride away from town centre / beach. The buses are regular and only cost 1.40 or less with a Bono card. Alternatively taxis cost around 7 euro. There is a supermarket right outside the apartment and two shopping centres within easy walking distance.
Just back from a wonderful 10 day stay at Sawadi House.
The apartment has everything you could need. It's spacious, interestingly decorated, very comfortable and Javier the host does everything possible to help you enjoy your stay, with welcome gifts of wine and food to start you on your holiday.
He is a only text away if needed and even let us know about local festivals and events.
We pretty much lived out on the large balcony which has amazing views over the city and down to the ocean. The apartment is in a quiet residential area and right opposite a good size supermarket - only a 5 minute walk away.
We managed really well without a car, taxis only cost around €6 to get either to the beautiful old town or the golden beach at Las Canteras.
Although Las Palmas is a little cooler than the south coast, the weather was great - it suited us and gave the opportunity to have a both a city and beach break. Plenty to do and see, great restaurants and everyone very friendly and helpful. Definitely hope to get back there and to Javiers apartment soon. Thank you Javier for sharing your home.
