We have a hot tub at home and always look for a villa with one. Los Jazmines has one that's designed for three but could take four at a pinch. But it wasn't just that, the villa has everything you could want in terms of furniture and fittings - and more. Lovely courtyard with beautiful plants and flowers, even it's own pomegranate tree ('granada' in Spanish) that you can pick the fruit from. On top of that, a wonderful, comfortable and spacious veranda, plus three terraces all with stunning views over the mountain-ringed, semi-tropical valley with the sea beyond. In a quiet, very private location with a great restaurant - Casa Lolo - on the doorstep, you could be forgiven for spending your entire holiday there and not sight seeing. So why not five stars? Because it doesn't have private car parking and, as it's on a tight bend that's part of a one-way road within the urbanisation, you need to park about 100m away. The road too is pretty rough and breaking up in parts, but while we were there the residents met and owner Orietta tells us the general feeling is to spend the money to resurface the roads throughout the urbanisation.
Have stayed at Los Jazmines with as a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids, 5 and 7 years old) over Easter 2017. This house has everything you can think of to spend a perfect holiday far away from mass tourism in the south. It's located in a small urbanization near Agaete in the northern part of Gran Canaria. There are two restaurants in walking distance and lots of great places to explore nearby. In particular staying in the small village of Agaete on a Sunday afternoon or later in the evening is a wonderful experience as people are so friendly and make you feel like being part of their community instead of being a tourist. Nice little beaches not far away by car either so the kids were very happy as well. The house itself has everything you need and caters for everything. This is due to the owner, Orietta being really interested in making it a perfect holiday for you. We've used the hot tub on a daily basis and the hammock was the perfect to just unwind and relax. The kids loved it as much as we did. One point to note in addition is the cleanliness of the house. Everything was in perfect condition and having stayed in various other apartments/houses at other places it's difficult to beat this. Orietta has set the bar high for us to find something similar somewhere else. Thanks for this Orietta :-)
It was the second time for us to stay in one of her properties (Los Veroles is equally very highly recommended) and will definitely aim to come back soon.
We had a very relaxing time here. We have a 2.5year old and the outside area was really great to spend time there. We had mostly good weather. There was a storm our first day so we were happy we packed a raincoat but after that the rest of the time was warm...even 26 one day. We love to swim in the sea, we found the local beach not that appealing but were very happy to find that the big beach in Las Palmas city was clean and a great swimming place. Behind the beach are alot of resturants so its pretty easy to spend all day there. It is a bit touristy mind you! In contrast we drove in the mountains and that was really beautiful. Would recommend that but plan it well as the roads are very slow and it took hours. The local town Agaete is really old and charming and there is hikng trails close to the house. We did not do them but many people were. If you like peace and quiet with a great mountain view this is your place!
I just got back from a wonderful 9 day break at this house. It was everything I hoped it wold be. Very clean, spacious, well decorated, peacefuL and relaxing. The directions from the airport were very good and I found the house easily. The owner explained everything I needed to know about the house and area, including hiking paths close by, of which there were many. The weather was great and the jacuzzi and large terrace were the perfect place to relax in after a long walk.
Would definitely go back.
We booked a week at Los Jasmines in November with our 9 month old daughter. The house was well equipped with everything we could need, even bathrobes for use after the hot tub! Nic touch! The views from the terrace were spectacular and the outside area very spacious - perfect for a little one learning to walk! The booking process was easy and Orietta provided all the information we needed to find the house. We had a great week and would definitely recommend this house. We would definitely book this place again if coming back to the area! (Nothing to do with the house but be careful where you park - stay away from the yellow curbs even if other cars are parked there!)
