Casa Tranquilidad was absolutely the most fantastic holiday stay we have ever had. The Villa it self was very beautiful and surrounded by a fantastic garden and a nice pool to complete the scene. Bearing in mind that a major part of our family (9 adults and 2 children) stayed there at the same time it allowed for privacy if wanted as the house was big enough.
At arrival we where met by Luis who really took care of us from start to end whenever he was needed - Thank you Luis for your excellent hospitality!
The distance to the beach was a healthy 30 minutes walk - a perfect distance to take care of all good food we had.
As a summary this was a place we definitely we will come back to in the near future.
A beautiful villa, with ample social and relaxing space for a large group. Very child friendly too. Luis was extremely responsive in the lead up to our stay, and very helpful during our stay. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Casa Tranquilidad.
What a fantastic holiday!!
We returned to the UK in December 2016 - completely chilled out after a wonderful stay at peaceful Casa Tranquilidad in beautiful Maspalomas.
Casa Tranquilidad lives up to its name and to everything that our host Luis writes about it. What a peaceful, spacious, well stocked, clean and well kept villa it is!
Upon our arrival, Luis warmly welcomed us and explained all about Casa Tranquilidad and the Maspalomas area. He then presented us with the best Welcome Pack we have ever come across in all of our wide travels! Luis was a lovely host, always contactable by phone and willing to help. He and Grimi visited the villa at prearranged times to quietly clean the pool, pathways and terraces.
What a beautiful place Casa Tranquilidad is - it really is a house of tranquility. Well kept rooms and bathrooms, a separate guest house, a well stocked kitchen. WiFi, a games room and a very inviting private pool. There were just two of us on this visit, but we can see why larger groups of friends and families regularly make bookings. It is ideal for kids and adults alike. We were really delighted with the facilities provided by the villa in relation to the rental cost. Of course, for a larger group of renters, the value is even better!
The villa is situated right in the middle of the Maspalomas golf course, nestled together with a small number of similarly large villas. This quiet location is away from the hustle and bustle of the town and large holiday complexes. It is a pleasant 30 minute walk on the flat to the Maspalomas beach and dunes; and the shops of Meloneras, past the Camel ride centre and “La Charca de Maspalomas” nature reserve. On occasion we took one of the ever plentiful taxis back from the beach at a cost of just €5-6. In the other direction from the villa, also a short walk/taxi ride away is Playa del Ingles with its nightlife, shops and supermarkets. We considered hiring a car for day to day use and exploring the island, but for us walking and the odd taxi was just fine.
We found Casa Tranquilidad’s location, its closeness to the beach and to Playa del Ingles to be absolutely perfect. Tranquility, the beach, shopping and nightlife all within easy reach - a perfect combination!
LUIS - MANY THANKS FOR OUR WONDERFUL STAY - WE WILL RETURN!!
We had an incredible holiday at Casa Tranquilidad. I don't think I can go back to staying in a big impersonal hotel or cramped holiday apartment ever again. It was just so fantastic having this gorgeous house and pool to ourselves. It is immaculately clean, well kept and private. We just felt so relaxed from the moment we arrived.
Luis' home is set off a quiet road in the middle of maspalomas golf course. It is a very large house with six double bedrooms and one single. All are en suite which meant we were all comfortable and had our own space but then could share the really nice, large communal areas. Everything was spotless, fresh and felt very looked after.
The kitchen was clean and well equipped with lots of work space, the huge terrace which leads directly to your own pool, has two perfect dining areas and there are lots of comfy sun beds.
The house is surrounded by a lovely garden which had a path that runs all the way around. It is fenced off and gated so we felt very safe having the kids running around. There is also a games room which we loved with a ping pong table and fusball table.
I think a car is a huge plus for exploring and shopping (less than 10mins drive away) but we would sometimes get a cab to the meloneras and maspalomas beach area which took about 8 minutes to get to as it was so easy.
We can't wait to come back!!!!!!! Thank you so much for everything luis!!!
We staid one week to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. Everybody had a great time, especially the kids.
We were a group of 7 people, 3 couples one with a 9 year old staying for 1 week.
Upon arriving we were greeted by Luis and first impressions were fantastic, a beautiful place, very clean and tidy in a quiet and peaceful location.
The villa is large and all rooms are clean and tidy. Each bedroom is ensuite and although there isn’t air conditioning, the rooms are quite well ventilated and the fan that was available for each room offered relief from the heat at night.
We were left a welcome pack including fruit, bread, milk, water, beer and wine.
The facilities are excellent, free wifi, a laundry room, 2 fridges, a cooker, a microwave and a large larder as well as all plates/cutlery/utensils/pots and pans, pretty much everything you would ever need. There is a portable barbecue but its quite small as the large built in one shown in the photos we were asked not to use as its too difficult to clean.
Outside, the terrace is a really good social area with 2 large dining tables and we spent most of our time either in the fantastic swimming pool, on the sunbeds by the pool or sat in the shade at the tables.
Although the pool is not heated it was the perfect temperature to offer relief from the heat of the day. The pool really was superb, a few steps down into the shallow end then slopes steeply to the deep end which is approximately 2 metres deep.
I would definitely recommend a hire car as the location is away from the main areas, although only a 5 minute drive away was a Spar shop for essential items or a 10 minute drive takes you to Maspalomas sea front. Playa Del Ingles is also around a 10 minute drive in the other direction.
All in all this villa is excellent, a few minor issues with locks on doors which Luis was addressing after our departure.
The only negative is perhaps the cleaning charge of €60 per day which we originally thought was included in the cost of the villa as when booking there was a cleaning charge but the €60 a day is on top of the cost of the villa. We ended up opting for 2 days cleaning.
If we needed anything, Luis was only a text or phone call away and more than happy to help.
We all would love to come back and stay again. Highly recommended if you want a peaceful, relaxing, private location.
