Nestled in a quiet residential area in the south of Gran Canaria, just metres from San Agustin beach stands Casa Retamas. Thoroughly modern in design, both inside and out, this charming two-bedroom townhouse features everything you’ll need to enjoy a luxurious and memorable stay in one of the island’s most exclusive and celebrated areas.
The interior is fresh, bright and spacious, featuring an uber-on-trend white and grey decor with touches of chrome and black in the high-end fixtures and fittings. Casa Retamas is ideal for both families or friends holidaying together, featuring two good-sized living rooms and two kitchens. Each living area features a sumptuous grey sofa, offering guests the perfect spot to relax in front of the large flat screen TV, and there is ample dining room at the modern dinner table - perfect for a relaxing breakfast or for enjoying a morning cuppa as you plan your day on the beach! Both kitchens are equally well-equipped with high-quality appliances such as ceramic hob, oven, coffee machine, microwave and fridge-freezer, and offer enough space to prepare hearty meals to enjoy during your stay.
Casa Retamas features two stylish bedrooms decorated to the same high standard as the rest of the interior. One room has a double bed and the other two singles, perfectly suited to a couple with children, and there are also two modern shower rooms for added convenience. Stepping out onto the lawn, you’ll discover a covered dining terrace and barbecue - perfect or alfresco meals, as well as plenty of seating areas in which to lounge and relax. No holiday villa is complete without a private pool, and Casa Retamas features a raised, rectangular pool, easily accessible by ladder, as well as an outdoor shower for freshening up after a leisurely swim.
What you should know…
- Casa Retamas features one double bedroom and a twin room, so perhaps not ideal for two couples who don’t want to argue over who gets the double bed!
- The villa’s single-storey layout makes it an ideal choice for a couple with young children, older guests or those with limited mobility
- The private pool is accessible by a stainless steel ladder rather than Roman steps, which could make it difficult for younger children to enter and exit safely
- Casa Retamas is situated in a residential area, so perhaps it isn’t suited to those who are looking for somewhere more private or remote
Casa Retamas is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom property with private pool and garden in the south of Gran Canaria designed for our most demanding clients. This holiday accommodation offers the possibility to enjoy the pleasure of swimming in the ocean and at the same time the privacy of having your own pool.

Casa Retamas is situated just a short distance from Maspalomas’ San Agustin beach, a stunning stretch of dark, golden sand that is popular with families thanks to its calm waters and gentle currents. Strolling along the coastal walkway, you’ll discover plenty of outdoor cafes, restaurants and bars, and there are sun loungers and parasols available for hires, as well as services such as lifeguards, showers and free parking. From here, there are excellent transport links to Maspalomas, one of south Gran Canaria’s most celebrated and popular tourist destinations, which meets the equally high-end and exclusive town of Meloneras on the seafront. It’s here that you’ll find the region’s famous dunes, a protected site that covers over a thousand acres. Most of the dunes can be explored on foot, allowing you to take in sights such as the beautiful lagoon and lighthouse, but we recommend taking a camel safari for a truly unique and fun way to experience this incredible landscape. The safari lasts for about 40 minutes (definitely long enough to be on the back of a camel!) and affords you some fantastic photo opportunities.
Maspalomas’ Botanic Garden is an often underrated attraction that, despite not featuring heavily in many of the guides, is always a pleasant surprise to visitors and well worth a visit while you’re here. Entrance is free, and the garden offers keen photographers and horticulturists the chance to see and snap cacti and brightly-coloured flowers indigenous to the area all in one place. The botanic garden is situated just five minutes from the lighthouse and is right next to the island’s famous Salobre Golf Course, where you’ll find restaurants, bars and leisure facilities.
Enjoying good food is one of the best parts of any holiday, and visitors to the area will be pleased to know that there is a huge choice of restaurants along the waterfront of both Maspalomas and Meloneras if you fancy venturing further than San Agustin. Las Rias is one of the most popular with tourists and locals alike and can be found right near the lighthouse on the seafront. Specialising in seafood, this family-run establishment serves up a dish of pulpo and prawns with potato foam and grilled calamari that really have to be tasted to be believed! When it comes to seafood, you’re going to be spoilt for choice here, but for those who consider themselves more ‘turf’ than ‘surf’, there are also some great steak restaurants in the area, such as La Churassco, as well as plenty of places offering Italian cuisine, tapas bars, and eateries with great vegetarian and vegan menus.
After enjoying some of the local cuisines, we recommend taking a waterfront stroll - especially around sunset. Boulevard Faro in Meloneras is 2km long and runs along Playa del Ingles beach and past some of the region’s most upmarket restaurants, hotels and shops. Further along, the route becomes quieter, and you’ll discover some of the most idyllic and romantic sea views in all of Gran Canaria.

Please be aware that the location tab shown on the website is not based on the property's exact location; therefore, all location amenities are an approx of facilities, restaurants, and villages/towns you might find around the property. The property's exact location will be provided to you before arrival and might come along with some recommendations about the area and what to visit.
Maspalomas is not just known for its enormous expanse of dunes next to the sea or its great climate. It is also known for its old Lighthouse, which saw the first tourists arrive and witnessed the area turn into a holiday resort.
Just a few metres from the promenade, bathers and walkers dive into the sand, which marks the start of the Maspalomas Natural Dune Reserve, made up of three eco-systems: Palmeral, Charca and Dunas (Palms, Pond and Dunes), which run in parallel a few metres from the sea. The whole area is an enormous, exceptionally valuable natural space.
Casa Retamas’ single-storey layout makes it ideal for those staying with young children, and the addition of a twin room and a highchair and cot available on request means that sleeping and dining arrangements for even the youngest guests will be easy and stress-free. The kids are sure to love the villa’s private pool, as well as being just metres from one of the region’s most family-friendly beaches. A day at San Agustin beach promises a day to remember, with warm golden sands and calm waters, as well as plenty of facilities such as sun loungers and parasols, and lots of nearby cafes, bars and restaurants.
If you’re travelling to this region with the kids, we highly recommend taking advantage of the area’s excellent transport links to the popular and high-end tourist town of Maspalomas, just a short distance away. Here you’ll discover a wide range of family-friendly attractions, including some fantastic beaches and bustling markets, cycling and walking routes, and lots of shopping centres and eateries - so guests of all ages will find plenty to enjoy.
If you’re holidaying in the region with the kids, we recommend enjoying a family day out at Aqualand Maspalomas, a water-based amusement park filled with adrenaline-fuelled waterslides and wave pools. Here you’ll find the opportunity to swim with sea lions, as well as enjoy a serene floating tour of the Pirate River - there really is something for everyone. Oliver recommends booking tickets for the park’s VIP zone, where cushioned sun chairs are serviced by friendly staff and make for a welcome spot for a shady rest.
Maspalomas is also home to the popular tourist attraction Palmitos Park, an interactive zoological and botanical centre that lets guests get up close and personal with exotic birds like parrots, toucans and flamingos. Children of all ages will delight in a walk around the butterfly house before heading to see reptiles such as komodo dragons, caiman and turtles. If cute and furry is more their thing, the park also houses a wide array of cuddly-looking critters, including meerkats, aardvarks and wallabies that the kids will adore! For a truly unique experience, Palmitos Park offers a ‘Dolphin Encounters’ experience where small groups can enjoy half an hour spent with these majestic creatures. Here you’ll learn about their biology and habits in a fun and interactive way and even be able to take some souvenir photographs. The dolphin experience can be booked once you have entered the park rather than in advance, and we recommend reserving your places by 10 am to guarantee you the chance to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Close to beach, shopping, restaurants, connection to roads, waste disposal, parking directly in front of the house and also on your own driveway. All in all a practical house. Plenty of seating around the pool. Enough shade, enough sun...
Good property in a great location
Good property in a great location, less than 5min walk to the beach and good variety of shops. Garden gets sun for vast majority of the day and there is nearly always a spot getting sunlight. Garden is fairly private, quiet and was peaceful. The property is essentially 2 mirror images of a 2 bed unit but you have both to yourself so it becomes a 4 bed. I had a great time.
