A house that "flies" over the sea. Salinetas beach, Gran Canaria.
Architecture and nature come together in this amazing house literally hanging over the sea, in a privileged location on the east coast of Gran Canaria.
The building "flies" over the rocks visually plunging into the sea and giving you the feeling of sailing on a boat on the clear waters of the Atlantic.
Sleeping rocked by the sound of the waves, or watch, without leaving the bed, the sun reflected in the sea at dawn; dine on the terrace by moonlight feeling the caress of the breeze ... are unforgettable experiences that this house guarantees.
The house is very bright and faces the sea. The terrace of the living room has a dining table with room for six people, and the master bedroom terrace has a hammock for sunbathing, relax and enjoy the view or just reading a good book.
And how far is the beach? Well, just beside the house! Just open the door and you can go down to the beach or to the rocky surfaces located under the house, with magnificent natural platforms for sunbathing and spectacular “charcones” studded with small marine life.
Salinetas is a quiet beach where you can relax, rest, practice water sports, cycling, hiking, all in a very unique and familiar.
To the north, a pedestrian maritime promenade connects with the beaches of Melenara , Taliarte , “Playa del Hombre” and “La Garita”. The Promenade features restaurants and terraces where you can taste the cuisine of the area, including the highly recommended "gofio escaldado" or the "papas con mojo”. “Playa del Hombre” is one of the most suitable beaches on the island for surfing.
To the south you'll find small coves like “Silva” or “Aguadulce”, or the incredible fishing village of “Tufia”, with its cave houses and its archaeological site, remains of pre-hispanic inhabitants of the island.
A little further south, the seaside village of “Ojos de Garza”, the vast bay of “Gando”, and the beaches of “El Cabrón” and “Arinaga”, whose seabed is considered the best in Spain for diving.
"Las Clavellinas", the town where the house is integrated has little shops and supermarkets. By car or taking the bus, at a short distance from the house, you can be reached within 5 minutes to the largest shopping and leisure areas of the island, the golf course of “El Cortijo” and the airport itself.
The access time to Telde´s historic core is about 10 minutes, 15 to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, capital of the island, and about 30 to Maspalomas.

Lo mejor que puedo decir de Salinetas es que amo profundamente esta playa.En ella pasé los mejores días de una infancia intensa y feliz, descubriendo en compañía de mis amigos los secretos y maravillas que se esconden en cada cueva, en cada charco, en cada piedra. Pescando, remando, buceando, practicando todo tipo de deportes en el mar, en contacto con la naturaleza.
Fue en esta playa donde conocí y me enamoré de mi mujer. No puedo evitar sonreír al recordar aquellas románticas noches en que tocábamos la guitarra sentados en la arena, al calor de una hoguera, o cuando paseábamos cogidos de la mano por la orilla del mar, contorneando al caminar la silueta de las olas sobre la arena mojada.
Y fue en esta playa, y en esta casa, donde crecieron también mis hijos, redescubriendo con el mismo placer e intensidad con que yo lo hice antaño, las incontables maravillas que atesora.
Actualmente, gran parte del año la pasamos en otra casa en el campo, en el interior de la isla, aunque cada poco regresamos a pasar unos días junto al mar, pues por lejos que uno se vaya, cuando has vivido en Salinetas, aunque sólo sea por unos días, la llevarás para siempre grabada en el corazón.
A mi familia y a mí nos gustaría que más personas pudiesen disfrutar de la experiencia de vivir en esta casa cuando nosotros no estamos y por eso nos hemos decidido a ofrecérosla.
Anímate y conoce Gran Canaria, su costa, sus costumbres y su gente desde una perspectiva completamente nueva y diferente!!
I am 54 years old and I am architect by profession.
The best thing I can say of Salinetas is that I love this beach. I spent the best days of an intense and happy childhood discovering with my friends the secrets and wonders that lurk in every cave, every puddle and every stone. Fishing, rowing, diving, playing all kind of sports in the sea, in touch with nature.
It was on this beach where I met and fell in love with my wife. I cannot help but smile when remember those romantic nights playing the guitar sitting on the sand, in the heat of a bonfire, or when we walked hand in hand along the shore, outlining the shape of the waves on the wet sand.
It was at this beach, and in this house, where my kids grew also, rediscovering with the same pleasure and intensity with which I did once, the countless wonders that treasures.
Currently, we spend much of the year in another house in the country side, in the interior of the island, but every little bit we come back to spend a few days by the sea, as by far you go, when you've lived in Salinetas, even just for a few days, you will take this place forever etched in your heart.
My family and I wish more people could enjoy the experience of living in this house when we're not and that's why we decided to offer it to you. Come and discover Gran Canaria, its coastline, its customs and its people from a completely new and different perspective!
