“We stayed at Bernardo and Ana\'s apartment in Las Palmas in June 2017. Their home is spacious and well equipped. The city is stylish and sophisticated. It is a short walk to the Mercado Central where you can get good quality fresh meat, fish and vegetables. The city has a huge selection of cafes, tapas bars and restaurants. Our host kindly left a list of his favourites which was most helpful. There is a good bus service throughout the city and taxis a plentiful and reasonably priced. Beaches are within easy walking distance and are clean, pleasant and most enjoyable. There are interesting places to visit on the island that can be reached by bus from the central station or by car if you want to rent one. We had a lovely holiday and can recommend without reservation.”
Bernardo's reviewsAs a host (5)
“Las Palmas is a cosy island capital with a fantastic beach and promenade just 5-10 minutes walk from the home of Ana and Bernardo. The spacious and modern apartment is an excellent homebase for exploring the the city and the island. We had an amazing vacation not the least due to the friendly and enthusiastic communications with Ana and Bernardo prior to going and during the stay. We wish the next exchangers a fabulous stay! Linus, Kathrine, Jonas.”
“Bernardo has been fantastic throughout the exchange. We maintained communications throughout and our host has always been there eager to help make our stay comfortable and pleasant. The apartment is very well located near everything, the seafront is fantastic for walks, plenty of restaurant choices in the vicinity. We were very happy with the exchange. Thank you to Bernardo and to Carlos, Bernardo's cousin, who greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcome right away. Gracias por todo ! ”
“Bernardo's apartment is spacious and well equipped. Our friend Jooske had a bedroom and bathroom for herself. We had breakfast in a small but very lively bar around the corner and did our daily shopping just around another corner. Las Canteras, the spacious boulevard along the famous sandy beach of Las Palmas, is at 10 minutes walking distance. Buses for exploring the island run from the nearby Santa Catalina busstation. We spent half our time in the city and the other half in the mountains (first half of November). Trails for walking and quiet villages are abundant. Dealing with Bernardo was fast and easy. Try for yourself!”
“I exchanged properties with Bernardo in October November 2016 He has a lovely flat in a nice area of Las Palmas. Its close to the beach and the port and has good dining and shopping close by Its also handy for local buses and for long stay parking Bernardo\'s flat is well appointed an very easy to live in We exchanged various recommendations about what to see and where to eat I can thoroughly recommend this propperty ( and Bernardo!) for an exchange”

El barrio es uno de los 2 principales barrios comerciales y de ocio de la ciudad, rodeado de bares, restaurantes, farmacias, museos, parques, avenidas, tiendas y grandes Centros Comerciales, etc. etc. Todo lo que a una capital se le puede pedir. Está flanqueado por dos playas: La Playa de las Canteras, con su espectacular arrecife natural de piedra; y la Playa de Alcaravaneras, playa portuaria frente al Puerto de La luz y de Las Palmas y con la Marina Deportiva a uno de sus extremos. A escasos 500 m de la casa está el popular Parque de Santa Catalina, con sus terrazas, el Museo de la Ciencia, Centro Comercial El Muelle, con cines, restaurantes y tiendas. La temperatura media de la ciudad es de 23-24 ºC durante todo el año, INCLUSO EN INVIERNO, disfrutando de la playa y del mar DURANTE TODO EL AÑO.
