Centrally located bungalow, ideal for couples or singles, close to bars/restaurants so no need to worry about taxi fares. Ideal for people who like to eat-in as well with good cooking facilities. Not far from bus stops for island excursions, beach within easy walking distance. Spend your holiday relaxing or hire a car & use it as a base to explore the island.
Air-conditioning & washing machine both use coin operated meters, only pay for what you use.
Beverly couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
The accomodation was clean, spacious and well prepared with access to a large pool and a private, secluded area to sun bathe.
It's literally 1 minute walk to the Yumbo, via a short alley coming out just across the road from the mini golf, so couldn't be more convenient for nightlife and restaurants, but with the privacy not available at nearby complexes, which charge considerably more for less.
Ideal for a couple or small group of friends.

It's a homely bungalow in a central location. For such a central location to the Yumbo centre it is remarkably quiet too.
The owners Graham and Rick are lovely and very helpful.
The owners had recently done some renovations including getting a lovely new bed for the master bedroom. The kitchen has everything you will need to self cater for your stay. The kitchen has a tap for filtered cold water. So no need to spend money on bottled water.
There are a few niggles as it is someone's home too. So I hope these suggestions can be helpful:
The bathroom could do with some rubber slip mats.
There is no broadband due to one of the neighbours severing the fibre cable supplying Los Valles. But you can easily sort this by using your own data on your phone or buying a local SIM card that provide up to 20gb of data via your mobile phone.
The best local super market is the Hyper Dino in the Yumbo Centre. For a large shop, it's recommended that you go up to San Fernando to either the Mercado or Lidl. San Fernando is a bit of a walk, about 2 miles. But you can always get a taxi.
We loved our stay and look forward to staying again.

Sorry we have stayed twice in the past 7 years for both pride weeks. Should have written reviews sooner.
Probably the best accomodation in the area
Im disabled so this property ticks all my boxes.
All on one level a couple of steps to the pool which I could step access and exit using a small plastic table safely
Close to the yumbo and secure locked gated development. Well lit at night you feel safe and I know two of the neighbours who live in the development. Will most definately book again in the future.
Our first time was brilliant caretaker picked us up from the airport and back initially worried dealing with a private hire as we have used packaged deals in the past worried because of scammers. You can be assured the guys who hire are trustworthy and helpful. This allowed us to revisit with a party of 3
Washing machine and drier handy
Look forward in booking again

La casa tiene dos dormitorios con camas cortas y mobiliario viejo. La limpieza es bastante escasa. Los muebles del jardín estaban sucios y algunos deteriorados.
El menaje de cocina no es abundante y está anticuado. Hay un único baño con una ducha sin mampara ni cortina por lo que, después de cada ducha,hay que recoger el agua y queda todo el suelo del baño mojado.
La lavadora y el aire acondicionado son de pago, funcionan con monedas. Metimos 3 euros, que es lo que cuesta poner la lavadora en marcha, y no fuimos capaces de ponerla en marcha.
La ubicación es buena pero la casa necesita una buena renovación y limpieza a fondo. No todo es cobrar, también hay que invertir en las casas.

The cost probably seems high becuase it is priced in Sterling for the UK market so can seem expensive in Euros. The only old furniture in the bungalow is the 2 bedside tables, the garden furniture suffered from the wet winter & will mostly be replaced this year. Unfortunately this lady did not like the wetroom style shower room, it is designed this way to enable wheelchair users to easily access the facilities, therefore a squeegee mop is provided to brush the water down the drain. I am sorry if the washing machine didn't work, although the customer did complain because it was on a coin-operated meter, possibly why she complains about the cost. To say that the kitchenware is outdated is rather misleading as most was purchased within the last 3 years, so I am unsure as to which items are being referred to. The property is regularly painted inside & out.

The bungalow was not clean when we arrived. The beds were too short and really bad, when you turned around in the bed you woke up everybody else. You could feel the springs in the matres. There were insects everywhere in the kitchen as well in the bedroom.
The area was good, close to the beach and to shopping.
During some rainy days the water came inside (through the Roof??) we contacted the caretaker, called and texten her, but she never got back to us and we had a swimmingpool inside, slippery and nit what you expect. Unfortunately it is hard to recomend this place.
We were two adults and three kids, stayed 10 days in February 2018.

This customer never complained to me about anything either during their stay or after. The beds are standard 6' beds found in most rental accommodation & the mattresses are less than 2 yrs old, they are firm & have received good comments from other guests in the past. Unfortunately during this period there were several days of torrential rain, causing the roof to leak & driving insects in from the garden. The caretaker disputes the comment that she did not respond to calls & texts. Apparently this customer was annoyed because they had to pay for the washing machine, although this was made clear beforehand, as is the fact that there are only beds for 4 people & the 3rd child was permitted to use a mattress on the floor, in future we will not allow more than 4 people to sleep in the property.

Very quite and friendly, to cold to use the pool but it was well looked after. The bungalow had everything you would need if you wanted to cook all your meals.
Across at the Yumbo every type of restaurant you could want.

After booking this villa only 4 days before we left, Graham was fantastic with correspondence and swift replies to my emails. Once booked we arrived and was met by Bev, fantastic woman that showed us around, was so fab we cancelled our bus transfer and booked her to take us back instead (giving us an an extra 1.5 hrs in bed). The villa itself was fantastic, all mod cons, the sandwich maker was a true gem for lunches on the patio,a fantastic TV with a hard drive full of films( great for siesta time). The villa is on a wonderful complex with mostly residents who are really lovely people and have fantastic tips for places to visit. The location is another plus point and local to everything, the yumbo, beach and bus stops. The air con was very welcomed in August and was very reasonable ( we spent about €15 all week for 2 units on). I cannot rave about this villa enough and cannot wait to return. I have been to this resort for many years and will never stay in a hotel again.

Really all that could be said about this place has been said.
It truly is Home from Home. Clean welcoming all the facilities you need. Quiet although only two minutes from the Yumbo.
Made me want to live there.
We were lucky to meet the owners who are absolutely charming.
We will definitely be staying there again.

Zijn hier ongeveer 25 jaar geleden begonnen met vakantie vieren op Gran Canaria. Toen een tijd ergens anders op het eiland gezeten. Nu weer terug op de oude plek: rustig, gezellig en dicht bij winkels en strand!

Depending on time of year Playa del Ingles can be quiet or very busy, for instance at Carnival time in March or Gay Pride in May. There are also several local market days where you can go & grab yourself a bargain. The nearby bus stop can provide you with a cheap way to explore the island - or you could hire a car to take you to the lovely fishing village of Puerto Mogan or the bustling capital of Las Palmas.
