We loved that we were in the old town and so were able to get a proper feel for the town as a place where people live and work (couldn't bear to go to a destination where all you have is the resort, with no other purpose for the place existing) and I particularly enjoyed tramping about in all the alleys and flights of steps among the dwellings. The town itself was a cheerful mix of out-and-out tourism (beachside etc) and 'foreign' (which is why one goes abroad, after all). Just loved the Italian restaurant on the doorstep - they were delightful. Our visit coinciding with the Fiesta del Carmen was huge fun too - my Goodness, they know how to enjoy themselves!

Puerto de Mogan in the south of Gran Canaria is away from the main tourist areas. It is an ideal all year round holiday destination with good weather. Average temperatures range from 18-21 degrees in winter to 26 - 30 degrees in summer with a cooling Atlantic breeze. It has a different drier and warmer climate from the north of Gran Canaria (where the weather reports come from) due to the mountain range in the centre of the island. (See map).
The Venetian style port, marina, restaurants and shops are all a few minutes' walk from the Captains House and Apartment, and offer a wide range of eating and shopping. There are also great excursions from Puerto de Mogan into the countryside, which has wonderful scenery.
The old village is a charming jumble of small passages and old houses going up the hillside. Situated at the bottom of the village, The Captain's House is a traditionally painted and restored village house with a roof terrace. The Captains Apartment & Studio, which is completely separate, is under the Captains House. Both of them are well-equipped and comfortable places to stay.
The property is in the old fishing village, reached by a passage (there are no cars in the old village) about 80 metres from the village square and 150 metres from marina and port restaurants. It is tucked away so it is private and quiet yet only a couple of minutes from the safe sandy beach with calm clear water, which is ideal for children and great for swimming. The beach has fresh water showers with sun-beds and umbrellas.
The house and the apartment (with or without the studio) can be rented together or separately. The house roof terrace has panoramic views of the coast, the port, and the beach. The apartment and studio share a patio shaded by a tree and have their own street entrance from the house, which is ideal for families sharing and older children.
Puerto de Mogan itself is beautiful. The beach is lovely & the sea is nice and warm for swimming. We found the restaurants to be of a very high standard with very good value for money. There are some nice bars for an after dinner drink and the atmosphere is so relaxed. It's a million miles from the resorts down the coast. JV Sept 2011

We really enjoyed our holiday in Puerto de Mogan, the apartment was perfect as it was far enough away from the bars so that it was quiet but close enough to walk to everywhere. We will definitely consider staying there again. KB Oct 2012
We had a ball in Magic Mogan. The Captains house was a perfect location to stroll around the resort....and the roof terrace....well what can one say, the view is etched in our memory, all our conscious time in the house was spent up there. DF May 2012
