“perfect peaceful holiday”
Reviewed October 3, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Beautiful villa, great comunication with John, couldn't be more helpful and his brother pedro, lovely man. The villa is perfect for a peaceful holiday with your own space and pool, comfortable sunbeds too. The area is quiet, but 10 mins away there's a shopping centre with supermarket, restaurants and bars, beech about a half hour walk where's there's plenty of restaurants and bars, playa de ingles is a short 4 euro taxi ride away. Maspalomas is a lovely clean place, will definitely be back. Loved it. Thanks john and pedro, we all had a great time.

“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Myself, my partner and our 5 children have just returned home after a fantastic stay at the villa for 10 nights. The villa has everything you could possibly need, a real home from home.
I would recommend a car as the weather was very hot in August and the air conditioning of the hire car was a relief!
The kids spent many hours in the plunge pool which was a lot larger than we originally thought. There is a good equal amount of sun and shade in the garden and lots of sun loungers to choose from.
The villa itself is really lovely and spaced out well. The air conditioning was very welcome throughout the villa.
The owner was lovely and gave us a great tour around the villa and pointed us in the right direction of any amenities we needed.
All in all a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend!
Thank you x

“Villa Calypso”
Reviewed June 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Excellent, quiet villa, beautiful garden, helpful owners/caretakers.
A Spacious and clean villa.
Would be helpful if you have a car as it's a 15 -25 minute walk to most places but we weren't effected the days we didn't have a car.
Not a single complaint!

“Well situated villa with comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed February 12, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have just returned from an extremely enjoyable week at La Villa Calypso. The accommodation is spacious, clean and comfortable and the lovely garden, with a small, well-cared for swimming pool, is an attractive feature of the property.

On our arrival and during our stay the owner, Pedro, was very helpful whenever we needed information about eating out and shopping etc.

The glorious weather meant we didn't spend much time in the games room, but certainly it would be an added bonus in less clement weather, especially for older children.

All in all we spent a fabulous week enjoying walks to the beach, sand dunes and local restaurants, but chiefly relaxing in the garden. We look forward to a return visit!

We would like to thank you very much for such an eloquent comment! For us, it was great and a pleasure to welcome friendly and pleasant persons like you. For sure, we would be very happy of a return visit!!!

But the most important for us, was that you enjoyed your holiday and spent valuable time recharging your batteries in a friendly and relaxing environment.

“Lovely villa”

Very spacious 3 double bed and 3 bathroom villa with a heated outdoor swimming pool. It looks quite small from outside but extends a lot in the basement - 2 bedrooms, bathrooms and large sitting area. Levels of noise were very important for us holidaying with toddler and this hasn't failed. The owner lives nearby and he was really friendly.
We had a great time!

“Excellent value & perfect for our needs!”

people found this review helpful

Villa Calypso is a deceptively spacious and secluded villa ideal for anyone looking for three separate bed and bathrooms. The owners live next door and we found them charming and responsive to our needs yet in no way obtrusive.
There is a great sunny garden with plunge pool and a real bonus for us was to meet the owners beautiful dogs as we were missing our own.
We understand there are further plans for this villa which will no doubt add to it's charm and we look forward to a return next year.
Thank you John for a lovely restful stay and the lovely gifts of fruit & wine, keep up the good work.

“Beautiful Villa with all you could need”

person found this review helpful

Just arrived home after a week long stay in this fantastic villa, everything you could possibly need has been thought of to enhance your stay. The pool is fantastic for those long hot days, we were even in there at night (warm pool) . Air con is fully functional and makes being inside so comfortable, the games room downstairs will keep everyone occupied along with satellite TV should you need it, all the beds are great and the whole villa is clean. The owners John and his Brother Pedro are so helpful...you only have to ask and they are happy to help, they provide a information booklet to make settling in an easy process, we went with our teenage kids so the WI FI was amazing... along with a great outside table tennis table to keep us all occupied. Shop is 10 minute walk away , great long walks if you want them but if not use the taxis as they are so cheap, clean and reliable. Great villa... as I said to Pedro before we left we will be coming back. Well done !
