Joaquin et sa femme Dobrina sont très accueillants, chaleureux et disponibles. Leur maison est fort charmante, caractérisée par son esthétisme prononcé. Le jardin extérieur vous imprègne directement de l'atmosphère du nord de l'ile.Une très bonne adresse!
Gracias por tu comentario!
Estamos encantados de haberles conocido y será un placer enorme encontrarnos nuevamente en cualquier lugar en el que nuestros caminos se encuentren!
The house of Joaquin and Dobrina is a warm place with a beautiful location. The garden and her chicken were a beautiful place to be every morning and evening. I loved the warm vibe of the house and, especially, her hosts.
The room was nice and well equipped!
I want to thank this beautiful canarian/andalusian/roman couple for all their good care, warm vibes and wisdom.
Thank you very much Jonas, we are really happy to be in airbnb because it give us the opportunity to meet brilliant people like you.
You are always welcome home!
We were made to feel very welcome and quite at home by Joaquin and Dobrina. The house is a wonderful old building with a beautiful garden as described and the location is great with good access to bus, sea, hills, ravines and so much more. The funny dogs and adorable cats add charm to your stay. You will love the bedroom with terrace, the cooing of doves and the croaking of frogs. Our hosts were helpful in every way and will remain friends as we would be very happy to return before too long. Highly recommend Villa Lilla and the Grand Canaria for a perfectly splendid holiday.
Dears Ben and Claire, we miss you as soon as you leave. I'm sure that we'll meet again, as you said, before too long! Más pronto que tarde, as we say... :)
Joaquin and Dobrina are lovely, friendly people and great hosts. Thanks to you both for a great few days.
The house is a beautiful old villa with a nice big garden, set in the hills of northern Gran Canaria. It's a perfect base for exploring the greener northern part of the island or the spectacular mountainous interior.
I'd recommend staying at Villa Lilla to anyone visiting Gran Canaria, and would definitely stay with Joaquin and Dobrina again if / when I return to GC.
Hi Brig! Thanks for you very nice words, It has been a pleasure meeting you. Hope to see you soon!!
Villa Lilla has been our hide-out in the Northern hills while we were exploring Gran Canaria for a week. The place is off the tourist sites, and gives quite an original impression of real Gran Canaria. It's a great hub to explore the island form here and something we looked forward to every night when returning from our day trips. The room is very large and clean and the bed was huge, with a huge blanket for two. It also has an outside terrace.
Joaquín made us feel comfortable with making his home ours, providing some insider tips for the island and also preparing a great breakfast and letting us use the kitchen. Dobrina has a great sense of humor and a warm and loving aura that also made us feel very welcome.
Thanks for your nice words Henning. I'm looking for the batteries ;)
Een prachtige villa, warm ontvangst en aardige hosts. De locatie is een tikkeltje afgelegen, hoog in de bergen op ongeveer 20 minuten afstand van Las Palmas. Als je op zoek bent naar rust en bereid bent kilometers af te leggen dan is deze plek zeer aan te raden.
Thnak you very much for your words, Puck! I agree with your recommendation, will write it sure!
Fantastic place in Gran Canaria if you run away from the tourists of Las Palomas and the big hotels. Like home... Nice, big room with a great terras (if the sun shines...). Super garden with 64 trees with exotic fruits (mmm...mmmisperos). In the morning breakfast with toast and banana (sorry, plantados) jam, the typical 'goffio' and lots of coffee. If you like to cook you can even use the kitchen of Joaquin and Dobrina. (and you can ask them to eat together. Cosy!) Don't forget to ask for the special Canarian massage of Joaquin! And don't wait to ask till the last day!
Hey Liesbet! Thank you very much for the nice words and recommendations ;)
Lot of hugs and kisses for you two... Hope to see you soon!
I had a lovely say at Villa Lilla, the room was spacious, artistically decorated and I had access to an outside space to relax and view the scenery. The hosts were really welcoming and helpful, explaining how to reach their property, best local tourist attractions and the way of life on the island. It was just what I needed to relax and enjoy the wonders of northern Gran Canaria which are often overlooked by those who just stay in the south. The Villa is well located to drive up into the hills to walk for a day or head down to the coast to enjoy some of stunning coastal scenery.
Hi Adrian, thank you very much for such nice words. We really enjoy your stay here and you will be always very welcome.
Hope to see you soon. A hug there!
I had a great stay at Villa Lilla. Joaquín and his wife are very open and likeable hosts who make their home yours. The beautiful old house is situated very quiet offside (6km) the village of Firgas. A good place for hiker. There is a bus station down the road, too, but for more spontaneous trips you will need a car.
Besides you and the hosts there live some (watch)dogs, cats and frogs. If you don't want them in your room, better keep your door shut ;-)
The room was very big (high ceiling) and clean, the matress was very comfortable and there was any problem with warm water in the bathroom. You can use the cool shared kitchen.
The garden is quite wild-romantic and has nice retreats. At the neighbour's plot there are two open cisterns (mosquitoes during the summer?).
The sun terace next to the sleeping room invites to sunbaths.
Thank you very much for your lovely words. I hope that your comment can easily help others to come home.
In summer there are a few mosquitoes, right, but we have some arms to fight them :)
Wonderful room in a beautiful country house, tastefully decorated up to the smallest details. Water, Coffee and Tea in the room and the free breakfast are a very nice plus. Dobrina and Joaquin are very warm and welcoming hosts, always up for a talk and you'll always be welcomed by the cats and dogs after you return from a day's trip. Even though the house is in a rural location, you're very quickly in Firgas by car, and via the new road to Arucas you'll be in the Guanarteme Area of Las Palmas in 25 Minutes. Highly recommended and judging by the reviews here and on the guest book in the house, I am not the only one who thinks so ;)
Hi Daniel, thank you very much for your really nice words, they make us think that we are on the right way to make new friends.
You will be always welcome!!
Dobrina + Joaquín
La visita de Joaquín ha sido muy agradable. Es un hombre tranquilo he independiente. Es amable, simpático y educado. Un buen tio y un buen huésped y estoy segura que como anfitrión será también excelente. Recomendable 100 por 100
Muchas gracias Auxi, ha sido un placer alojarme en tu casa. Seguro que te irá bien con los nuevos proyectos.
Joaquin is a reliable and friendly guy. It's a pleasure to stay in his home and i can wholeheartedly recommend him to any host!
