Bedrooms 3
Space 95 m²

Finca Monica 3

This finca - due to it´s spaciousness (nearly 100 square meters) and the individual allocation especially invites families to stay. Five People can live comfortably over there without any problems If the youngest child can still sleep in a cot, also four children with both parents can spend a relaxing holiday here. And because of various possibilities at our barranco (that means 'Rocky Valley' ) such as bow constructing and traditional bow-shooting as well as language courses ... - also small creative groups maybe feel animated to leave here hanging out at my barranco paradise.

About the property

Finca Monica

My “Finca Monica” seems to be located all alone in the mountains but it´s only a 5 min. drive to the nearest small shopping center at Playa del Cura and the beach. The nearby little town Puerto Rico offers more shops, restaurants of all kinds, pubs and discos and a lot of different  leisure activities such a tennis, squash,  large trampolines, gym and golf (nearby). If you are ready to go a little bit further still (ca. 20 km) you can share the nightlife of Playa del Inglés – that is the absolute contrast to Barranco del Cura – you´ll see... Therefore, it is recommendable but not urgently necessary to hire a car   – when contacting a “Rent a car” I´m very happy to help you if you like.

How to go to Finca Monica and adress: From the airport take the motorway South, past Playa del Inglés, further on to Arguineguin and finally to Puerto Rico leaving there the motorway. – At the roundabout go to the right towards Mogán. – Following the street about 800 meters, you will arrive at another roundabout with a sign post leading you to the right at “Barranco del Cura”. – You´ll have to go straight on at the lightly ascending way that after about 500 m will turn into a somewhat bumpy lane. Carry on straight, on reaching a big iron gate I will meet you and guide you on your last meters to your vacation home. Now you are only 8 min away from Puerto Rico, at your destination – Finca Monica in the midst of charming mountains, so quiet that during the night you can hear crickets chirp – something for individualists.

Adress : Mona Janke - Barranco del Cura - C/Pardela, n. 28 - 35138 Mogán, Gran Canaria, Spain - Tel.: +34 928 153059 - mobile +34 619 710027

Transfer and sightseeing / excursions: If you need a transfer from or to the airport please inform me. For a small fee I`ll be very happy to arrange it for you.

Maybe you are interested in tours or excursions to the surrounding areas, or all over the island? I can help you find the best with my island experience, of almost 20 years! Maybe an interesting example is a folklore event that takes place at every Sunday in Las Palmas in the North of the island. There is also an open tourist bus to see the sights of the city. Inland, you may visit caves where people still live almost under conditions of ancient times – only the antenna outside testifies to modern inventions such as television.

Spanish lessons and hiking: Finally something totally different: If you like you can have a bit of education and additional knowledge. Although I´m not an examined teacher I have intense and long experience with tutoring and beginner lessons in English and Spanish. Perhaps you´ll discover an hitherto hidden talent of foreign languages then – please tell me if you´re interested in this…

If you feel like exploring the area on foot all over in the barranco (engl.: rocky valley) you can discover something new. Also dogs (by appointment please) can sport about nearly everywhere. This idyllic part at the southwest of Gran Canaria is situated quite near to the main tourist centers but right here you´ll find only hikers, some animals and those few residents of this Barranco, all of us nice people of all ages.

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung in ruhiger Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Die Finca Monica 3 ist eine sehr schöne und gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung. Wir haben im Mai 2015 eine erholsame Woche bei exzellentem Wetter in der Finca verbracht und können die Wohnung unbedingt weiterempfehlen.

Die Ferienwohnung liegt sehr ruhig und malerisch in einem Canyon ca. 5 Minuten Fahrt vom ruhigen Strandort Playa del Cura (30-40 Minuten vom Flughafen entfernt - ein Mietwagen ist unbedingt erforderlich). Die Umgebung rund um die Finca hat uns an die Canyons in Arizona und Utah erinnert und bietet dadurch einen tollen Kontrast zu den Hotels direkt am Strand.

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet (Toaster, Kaffeemaschine, Ceranfeld-Herd, großer Kühlschrank, reichlich Besteck und Geschirr). Besonders gut gefallen hat uns der gedeckte Grillplatz hinter dem Haus - mittags ein angenehm kühler Platz zum Ausruhen. Den Grill haben wir fast jeden Abend genutzt.

Zum Einkaufen bietet sich der Spar in Playa del Cura an, der sowieso auf dem Weg liegt, wenn man von der Finca wegfährt. Ein toller Strand (Amadores) ist nur 10 Minuten mit dem Auto weg.

Danke Mona für den tollen und erholsamen Urlaub bei Dir! Viele Grüße aus der Schweiz von Marion und Björn

Perfect Baranca Holiday

  • 5 of 5

If you like peace and quiet, a beautiful countryside right outside your doorstep, and your own baranca with easy access to walks and climbs - this is the place for you.

Furthermore you have Playa Cura and its shopping centre and restaurants only a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk away from the house.

The house has everything you need for a perfect holiday, Lots of places to sit and relax, a terrace for any occasion and time of the day. 2 good bedrooms with 3 beds in all, and 2 extra beds on a balcony above the sitting room - only accessible after a bit of a climb and a crawl. But children will love it!

The house has a real homely atmosphere. Everything is in perfect order, most of the things are brand new.

Mona, the owner of the house, is very friendly and helpful. Her English is very good and she knows the area really well.

The road to the house is a bit difficult to find the first time, along a bumpy dirt road. This cannot be right, you think, behind a locked gate. But Mona will be there and guide you - at any time of the day, or in our case night.

Thank you, Mona.

eine super finca!

  • 5 of 5

Monas Fincas sind still etwas abgelegen in einem von zerklüfteten Felsformationen gelegenen Tal. Die Finca 3 in der wir als fünfköpfige Familie wohnten war ideal für uns. Großzügig geschnitten mit herrlicher Veranda und Grillplatz. Die Ausstattung ließ nichts zu wünschen übrig. Besonders empfehelneswert als Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungen der Sügküste. Der Nachbar bildet im Bogenschießen aus, was unseren Kindern ein besonderes Erlebnis war.

Spacious homestay

  • 5 of 5

Everything is fine in Monica 3. The house is complete with comfortable furniture inside and outside. It is very clean, spacious livingroom, kitchen and bathroom. Great terrace and outside seats. Wifi is fast and the satelite tv is good and big. The quiteness is all the more valuable especially if you realize your are on busy and crowdy Gran Canaria. All that makes the Monica's a great and special places to stay. You need a car and for driving in and out and for Monica 3 you need a bit of practice on steep roads. But that's fun too.

Ruhe und Entspannung im Süden Gran Canarias

  • 5 of 5

Etwas abgelegen in einer kleinen Schlucht gelegen liegt die Finca Monika 3, die man nach einer kurzen Anfahrt über eine nicht durchgehend geteerte Straße im Barranco del Cura findet.

Wer einen ruhigen Ort für seine Ferien sucht, der ist hier genau richtig: Himmlische Ruhe umgibt die Finca, fern von Verkehr oder dem Trubel überfüllter Touristenzentren. Genießen lässt sich diese auf der Sonnenterrasse oder im hinteren Bereich der Finca, wo meist Schatten herrscht. Wer mehr Action braucht, ist per Mietwagen schnell an allen nötigen Hotspots fürs Whalewatching, zum Tauchen oder für andere sportliche Aktivitäten. Platz war für uns vier Personen in der Finca ausreichend vorhanden. Dabei ist die Finca ist hübsch gestaltet und mit allem Nötigen versehen. Die sanitären Anlagen funktionieren einwandfrei und sind gut gepflegt. Es lohnt sich kaum, eigene Bücher mitzunehmen, da zumindest die deutschsprachige Bibliothek gut gefüllt ist mit Literatur für jedermann Geschmack (auch für jüngere Kinder), und auch einige Gesellschaftsspiele stehen bereit. Das Gelände um die Finca herum ist sehr steil und bietet sich für Wanderungen an.

Im nahegelegenen Ort selbst findet sich, im Gegensatz zu den Nachbarorten, ein nicht überfüllter Strand ohne fliegende Verkäufer. Der tägliche Bedarf lässt sich schnell über den lokalen Sparmarkt decken.

Der Kontakt mit Besitzerin Monika war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert.

Super schönes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt, wir haben die schöne Terasse täglich genutzt. Auch den kleinen Platz hinter dem Haus genossen wir abends zum grillen. Die Schlafzimmer sind auch ausreichend groß, das kleinere mit dem Durchgang zur hinteren Terasse hat uns auch gereicht.

Der obere Raum mit zwei Betten hat leider keine Stehhöhe und da es keine Fenster oben gibt ist es auch sehr warm zum schlafen. Das ist aber auch das einzige was mir an Kritik einfällt.

Mona ist jedenfalls supernett und kümmert sich um alles wenn man hilfe braucht und lässt einen sonst in Ruhe. Danke für die schöne Woche. Margit und Joe

Owner's Response: Liebe Margit und Joe, freut mich, daß es Euch wieder gefallen hat - jetzt kennt Ihr ja schon zwei der vier Finca Monicas ... Und Ihr habt Recht : oben ist es sicher etwas warm zum Schlafen, und deshalb werde ich auch sobald wie möglich dort ein Fenster einbauen lassen, um diesem Mangel Abhilfe zu schaffen . Alles Liebe Mona

The Barranco del Cura (Barranco means 'rocky valley') where the 'Finca Monica' is situated offers total relax and silence with fantastic formation of the mountains, hiker paths and interesting views all over there. This site invites you to stroll along and hike within the mountains bow Shooting is available- more informations you´ll get elsewhere.

Other Activities: Deep sea fishing, beach volley, large trampoline, Squash, Gym

Golf: In the surrounding area and all over the island you´ll find some nice golf sites with 9 and 18 holes that can be used by passionate golfers all year round.

By the way: One says Gran Canary´s climate is one of the best in the world - especially for those people who have problems with rheumatism and asthma.
