This apartment and host are the best I have experienced after visiting 46 countries. Cleanliness, location, apartment style and amenities are fabulously well thought out. We will be back!
Look no further, you have found the perfect place to stay in Las Palmas. We returned last week from a wonderful 2 week stay at Malfu Home and cannot praise too highly the apartment, its owners and its location.
Immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and equipped to a very high standard, it is in the heart of the historic yet residential Vegueta district and so convenient to explore on foot the many nearby museums, churches and ancient streets full of beautiful architecture. The number of lovely restaurants and tapas bars within walking distance of the apartment is countless, we really were spoilt for choice. The apartment also has a nice roof terrace for those lazy moments.
You are within a short stroll of the Triana shopping area, at the far end of which lies the San Telmo bus station from which to access many other parts of the island via the blue Global buses. The fascinating Vegueta market is close to the apartment as well, and behind the theatre opposite this you will find a station for the yellow city Guaguas buses. A journey costs €1.40 cash, but get a “bono sin contacto” for €1.50 and put at least a minimum 10 journey charge on it for €8.50 – this can be shared as long it is validated on boarding for each traveller. The beautiful Las Canteras beach is soon reached by guagua.
We now come to the very best part of the apartment – the owners, Ana Luisa and Juan, who live very close by. They are such warm-hearted and generous people you somehow just don’t think of them as the proprietors of your holiday letting at all; more as lovely neighbours you’d want as friends.
They ask in advance if you have any special interests so that they can sort out info and suggestions to suit, and will give you as much or as little advice as you want during your stay (it’s invariably good by the way), so genuinely keen are they that you enjoy your holiday. Any problem that arises is quickly sorted, and their kindness is reflected in the amount of basics you’ll find on arrival – I’m sure we’ve all encountered the rentals where you need to get out and buy large quantities of cooking oil, toilet paper, detergents etc. which you then leave behind, certain that the next guests will not get the benefit either. And there’s none of the four cups, plates, glasses, spoons nonsense...
Ana Luisa and Juan also sacrificed much time to help when I fell badly ill on our penultimate day – family could not have done more.
This was our first time on the island, it won’t be our last, and we know where we’ll want to stay.
Ana Luisa is a fabulous host (she's the wife of Juan). She is so helpful and attentive and even arranged for us to have a day tour to the north of the island which was amazing - lovely villages and incredible scenery - not to mention delicious wine at the vineyard.
The apartment is well located in the middle of Vegueta, not far from the cathedral.
The home is spotlessly clean and very well appointed for your every need.
We stayed for a week and had a super time. It was nice to have the opportunity to have a drink or a spot of lunch on the roof terrace too.
I would thoroughly recommend this place - enjoy the hospitality of your wonderful host.
The house of Ana Luisa is located in the heart of Las Palmas: VEGUETA.
this is absolutely the best location in Las Palmas, situated in the casco antiguo, 4 minutes walk from Santa Ana Cathedral, 5 minutes to the Casa di Colon !
You are also very very close to Calle Triana, the most important commercial area of Las Palmas!
the apartment has been completely refurbished, very bright and clean, you find everything you could need
Ana was very kind and helpful, helped me for all my needs, and more
Ana & her husband, the Architect : definitely the best of Las Palmas
I will be back very soon
