Our reputation is building and our guest book is testament to what to expect when you stay with us.

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.

Prices start from €330 per ROOM per week for a single person, in a single bed including a light breakfast. (A single person wanting a double bed/room will be charged €350)

For two people sharing a twin or double room the price is €380 per ROOM per week including a light breakfast.

*For Christmas and New Year only €500 per week for a single person. (A single person wanting a double bed/room will be charged €550 per week)

*For Christmas and New Year €600 per week for two people sharing a twin or double room.

Special rates for group bookings and stays over 2 weeks.

We will hold your dates for 48hrs while you book your flights

Included in the price;

* A light, continental breakfast
* Free Wifi around the house
* Free water, tea and coffee around the house
* Large lounge with TV, DVD and comfortable sofas
* Smoking allowed only on the terrace

Only a short taxi ride to the Yumbo but very walkable. Local bars, cafes with gorgeous patisseries and restaurants are just a step away.

If you've always wanted to visit Gran Canaria, and a single traveler but felt a little intimidated, let us guide you through all the island has to offer.
You are assured of our personal attention, we are here to help.



We look forward to hearing from and hopefully seeing you

We can offer many specialist breaks including, guided walks, fishing, horse riding, Spanish lessons, daily yacht cruises.
