The space

Beautifully restored traditional Canarian farmhouse with pool, garden, patios, large rooms and beautiful views. Situated in the country but just five minutes from the nearest town and 10 minutes from the beach. Perfect for couples or families with children. It was wifi, digital tv, all the amenities you'd expect plus parking for 2 cars.

1 master bedroom with queen size bed and ensuite bathroom
1 double bedroom with queen size double bed and z bed if needed
1 twin room with bunk beds

1 shared bathroom with bath and shower
1 ensuite bathroom with large shower and corner bath

1 kitchen with breakfast bar and dining area with table for 8
1 large living room with 2 sofas, 1 arm chair, digital TV, piano

1 front patio with large L-shaped wicker sofa, hammock and children's play area, swings and sandpit

1 South facing patio next to the pool with outside dining area for 6, sunloungers, parasol and seating area.

1 pool with security fence and permanent cover. It is solar heated and is consistently over 32ºC in the Summer. In the Winter it gets quite cool though and between November and March is probably too cold to swim in unless there is a heatwave.

1 chillout area with firepit.

1 large garden with lawn, fruit trees, vegetable patch and strawberry patch (feel free to help yourself). We also have 8 chickens that will be fed and cleaned during your stay who lay 5 to 6 eggs a day.

Only 5 minutes from many restaurants, a bakery, fresh fruit shop, supermarket, children's park and only 10 minutes from a number of beaches.

Located in the Barranco de Telde it is in a quiet hamlet of just 10 houses. We enjoy spectacular views, walks which start outside the front door and all year sun.

The house was restored in 2003 to the highest standard whilst respecting the original style. It is a listed building that is over 200 years old. The pool was built in 2011.

Pets are welcome and dog beds can be provided on request as we have both cats and dogs.

We had such a wonderful stay at Richard's place in August 2017. Set in an idyllic spot just outside of Telde with chickens, fresh fruit and veg growing in the garden and all of the comforts of a home, it was the perfect getaway for us and our two young children. It's perfectly placed for exploring - on foot or by car - and we encourage you to do both. We ventured along the paths and trails in the early morning sun and walked into town more than once for lunch. We spent some mornings in San Juan Park, which is well worth a visit whether you fancy a run or want to exhaust the kids. We ate at many of the recommended restaurants suggested by Richard and they didn't fail to live up to expectations. The house is a beautiful home and, as such, was ideal for us - the boys loved playing with the lego and reading the many books. (So did the grown ups!) They also loved the pool which kept us all cool during the heat of the day. The kitchen has everything you'll need and we all enjoyed cooking fresh meals most evenings - often with items grown by Richard and his family. We had eggs most morning thanks to the very friendly chickens! Whether you are looking for a base to explore the island - and you really should because it's beautiful - or for a quiet location to chill in, I can't recommend Richard's place enough. Both he and Ros were the perfect hosts and keen to help us maximise our stay. We did - we had a lovely holiday and thank you all for letting us make your home ours for a brief period!

We had a wonderful stay at 13a. Richard and his family had decorated the house for Christmas so it felt very festive. Having a BBQ on Christmas day was a first but one I'd be very happy to do again! The house is really lovely and the kitchen is great for cooking. The outside space and garden is also really nice just to relax in especially if you are coming from British winter and there were fresh herbs in the garden which made our meals even nicer. This isn't in a holiday resort area but I think that's a positive; half of the fun for us was having a go at Spanish and seeing what local life is like. We actually really enjoyed the local beaches (10 mins drive). Richard was always very responsive to questions and requests and has produced a very useful guide. The animals in the area (dogs and cockerels mainly) were noisy but it didn't bother us; if you are super sensitive to noise at night then might not be for you though. Overall, a brilliant experience and we'd be very happy to come back again (if Richard would have us!).

We had a great time in Gran Canaria. The house was incredibly comfortable and beautifully laid out with plenty of indoor and outdoor space for our family of five. The house itself is in a small commune, though affords plenty of privacy and has views to the distance towards the ocean. There was a plentiful supply of all essentials (including beach towels) and importantly toys! The small pool (heated) kept our three children entertained for many hours. Richard and his family are very hospitable and generous hosts. Many thanks!

The place is great. Kids had a blast feeding the chickens and gathering the eggs. Not only a lot of room for the kids to run, but a lot of toys for them to play with as well. Great location too. Picked a couple of pieces of fruit and even had some vegetables from the garden. Richard also had some nice suggestions which worked out great for us. Thumbs up!!

We had wonderful 18 days in Ros and Richards beautiful home. You can tell that lots of work and love have been put into restoring the house, the garden is amazing! Our kids loved the pool, and so did we on hot days. It was a great place to explore the island from and come back to and relax in the evenings. You will find just about everything you need for cooking etc. Richard was very helpful with the few questions that we had. Highly recommended! When you go be sure to download Richards Walking in Gran Canaria app if you like walking :-) (we did it too late unfortunately).

Thanks Richard. Your house was great for us for our week on Gran Canaria. It is clean, well maintained, a working home with everything a family needs rather than a dedicated rental house. It is a good location from which to explore the island. Having a car is a must. The rooms were all generous and comfortable and you could feel the history in this very well restored farmhouse. The garden was very nice especially being able to pick fresh lemons off the tree outside and the herb garden. BBQ facility also great. This was our first time using airbnb so we were a bit concerned but it all worked out very well. Richard was very attentive to us in advance and on location as needed.

Richard was an exellent host. He answered very quickly by email everytme I contacted him. The house is absolutely fabulous. The kitchen is well equipped and there is room enought to live and enjoy sunshining with pool. Only minor bad thing was the dogs in the neighborhood...but it is not Richard´s fault. We spended a wonderfull 16 days here (second summer in row)...we went in few Fiesta, which were recommended by Richard (Bajada De La Rama, Traida Del Agua and the Fiesta del San Lorenzo). We love Gran Canaria...and especially this house. Thank you Richard!

I build websites and iPhone apps and have lived and worked in Gran Canaria for 11 years with my fantastic wife. We have 2 beautiful young girls. I run and the iPhone app walking in Gran Canaria. My wife and I restored the house in 2004 and have lived in it ever since adding the patios, pool, orchard and garden while we've been here. We both love Gran Canaria and are very keen for any visitors to our house to explore the real Gran Canaria and we will help you find the best restaurants, beaches, bars and walks throughout the island. We are both fluent in English and Spanish and will do all we can to make your stay as memorable as possible. We have rented out our house every Summer since 2005 and pride ourselves on having many repeat visitors.
