We are both gay English guys, in our 50's, who have retired to Gran Canaria. We are situated in the lovely area of San Fernando, just a walk away from the famous dunes and the Yumbo centre. We offer a service second to none in terms of presentation, hygiene and comfort. Our house has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and now offers NEW en-suite accommodation, new beds and air conditioning*. The enclosed courtyard is perfect for relaxing and alfresco dining. On the spacious roof terrace is a large Jacuzzi for up-to 7 people along with sunbeds, parasols and tables. It's the perfect area to enjoy views of the mountains and the dunes or just relax! The house and sun terrace is private and clothing optional so no tan lines !!
Each room is serviced regularly and towels are provided and changed regularly. Sliding wardrobes with plenty of space for clothes and bags.
