“a perfect place”

Casa Tranquilidad is a perfect place. When I read the reviews I could not believe that they were true - they are! Luis and Angela are wonderful hosts. The location is superb in a quiet cul de sac of beautiful houses surrounded by the golf course. The main "noise" is wonderful birdsong. The property is beautifully maintained with lovely garden borders.The accommodation is very comfortable with its own entrance, immediate access to the pool and terrace, sitting area, bedroom, bathroom, kettle and microwave/grill, TV and DVD player. The furnishings are of a very good standard and the cleaning, dish washing and linen replacement service is superb. The breakfasts, served on the terrace, are wonderful - fresh orange juice, coffee,fresh fruit with yoghurt, a hot course [ omelette, egg and bacon etc], Angela's superb bread at least a couple of times in the week. The pool is not heated but was very refreshing even in January! It is five minutes by car to the beach and dunes and the facilities in Meloneras and the Yumbo Centre. Luis recommended excellent restaurants. We relaxed completely and were made to feel very welcome. Roko and Poncho, the two dogs, are very well behaved and only come and say hello if they are welcomed! In his poem The Prelude Wordsworth talks about spots of time - the special moments in our lives that refresh and revive us - our week at Casa Tranquilidad was one such spot of time. We will be back!

“Really enjoyable return visit”

We don't often revisit a place but the call of sunshine in October and our memories of how relaxing our last visit was inspired us to visit again. My wife has a hectic job and it was great to get away during half term and experience the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere at Casa Tranquilidad. We loved the delightful lazy breakfasts by the pool then after a slow start, perhaps a swim, before heading off for the day!

“Paradise”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

We booked Casa Tranquilidad after reading previous reviews as it sounded to be exactly what we were looking for.. We were NOT disappointed.
Having holidayed in Gran Canaria for several years with our children, staying in lively resorts, this year, we were looking for somewhere to relax and totally unwind on our own now they have grown up. This is exactly what we experienced.
Luis, Angela, Roco & Poncho were exceptional host, from arrival to departure. They made us feel extremely welcome, looking after us but never intruding.. Even when Poncho popped by for a fuss, he wasn't allowed to pester us (even though he's very cute & no bother)
Our delicious breakfasts, served most days by the pool were wonderful & set us up for a day of sunbathing & swimming, or excursions.
The Accommodation was kept spotless by Angela with clean towels & bedding every couple of day. Luis kept the pool & terrace area extremely clean despite a couple of days of unseasonal weather. They were also always happy to call for taxis when required.

This was a wonderful holiday & we are looking forward to returning as soon as possible.

“Beyond Expectations!”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Myself and my wife were looking for somewhere special to spend a special week away to enjoy our 30th wedding anniversary, we read the reviews for Casa Tranquilidad in Maspalomas and decided to book. We were not disappointed, Casa Tranquilidad is a wonderful, quiet oasis. We were greeted by Luis and the 2 dogs Poncho and Rocco (very well behaved and friendly) and were shown our accommodation, lounge area, bedroom area, shower room - perfect.
The first morning arrived and we walked out onto the patio next to the pool to eat a wonderful breakfast prepared by Angela and served by Luis, this was one of the highlights of our stay, breakfasts were wonderful, home cooked local food in a tranquil surrounding, the perfect way to start your day.
Angela cleaned the rooms daily, Luis swept the patio and cleaned the pool daily too, so that we may enjoy the peace and quiet and relax at the villa if we wanted, which we did on a quite a few occasions :).
We enjoyed many days out in Gran Canaria but to know we were going back to Casa Tranquilidad at the end of the day was a blessing.
Luis and Angela are fantastic hosts and you will not want for anything at this wonderful, peaceful location, check out what 'Casa Tranquilidad' translates to then you will understand what this place is all about :)
We thank you Luis and Angela for your hospitality and look forward to staying again in the future.

“A most relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

I chose this rental based on the reviews and the attractive location, and I am glad to say that I was not mistaken. I came for a relaxing holiday, and in the care of Luis and Angela (not forgetting Poncho and Rocko) that is exactly what we got. Sadly, Luis and Angela had lost one of their much loved dogs just before we came.

The apartment is located in a quiet location near the dunes and the golf course, well away from the many resorts and tourist villas in Maspalomas. Each day, after a day on the coast or inland, we returned to this tranquil oasis to sip a glass of wine or take a dip in the pool which Luis regularly clears of petals from the beautiful bougainvillea in his well-kept garden.

The apartment is small but clean and well furnished. There are facilities to make tea or coffee and a fridge to keep drinks etc. cool. The room is cleaned daily, and towels changed regularly as needed. Breakfast as already noted in many reviews was excellent, and Angela supplemented this with the occasional (very tasty) cakes to take with us on our travels.

This was our first stay in the Canaries, and Luis was a very helpful host, sharing with us his knowledge of the islands and local culture. We hired a car and so were able to experience the stunning inland scenery as well as the many coastal resorts in the area. In spite of the dry climate in the south, the scenery is spectacular and varied - not to be missed.

All in all a great holiday and we would gladly come back.

“Too perfect for words”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Yet again we had a fabulous time with Luis, Angela and the dogs, the weather was perfect, the breakfasts were amazing so much choice and very filling, Angela's home made bread as delicious as ever. Luis and Angela made us feel so welcome they are such a warm loving couple you feel more like family than guestsmaking each day special especially as it was our wedding anniversary whilst we were there it was a perfect way to spend such a special occasion.Even though it was our third time there is always something new and amazing to do,
we recommend a trip to the mountains and a drive through all the little authetntic villages, we recomend Faro Maspalomas with lots to do, but then agiain if its relaxation you want then just lazing by the pool admiring Luis' stunning gardens is recommended.
Thank you Luis and Angela and the 'boys' for such a wounderful holiday, birthday and Anniversary words alone cannot express how amazing you both are.

“Most pleasant and relaxing holiday!”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We visited with Luis and Angela in the beginning of May and enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Casa Tranquilidad! The house itself is very impressive and perfectly maintained! The pictures on the website are a very accurate reflection! Luis and Angela are wonderful and caring hosts and we were extremely well looked after at all times. Luis has a wealth of knowledge about Canaries' history and presence and Angela is an excellent cook. Her home made bread is irresistible and will defeat any dieting commitments! Breakfasts by the pool were a perfect start to our days and on a couple of occasions we also enjoyed Angela's home cooked dinners with a marvellous paella, carrot cake and Russian salad - all very delicious indeed!

The weather during our stay was perfect for both sunbathing and swimming in the pool or dipping in the sea. The sun outside was just strong enough, while the room offered pleasant coolness and a great sleep at night without the need for any air conditioning.

The house is located in a very quiet area next to the golf course. We never had any problems with noise at night and were very nicely woken up by birds song in the mornings. In terms of local entertainment, we liked Meloneras and the Faro Boulevard. Getting there from the house is a pleasant 35-40 min walk and taxi during the day was EUR 5 (including the tip).

We loved our stay at this property and would strongly recommend Casa Tranquilidad and Luis and Angela as hosts!
