Luxury Gran Canaria Property Specialist Laura Leyshon
As a RE/MAX Collection agent specialising in luxury property in Gran Canaria, I can help you to buy or sell high-end penthouses, villas and homes anywhere on the island.
I'm Laura Leyshon and I specialise in value-added service.
At the end of 2019, before the world realised how dangerous the Coronavirus was, I wrote a Gran Canaria property guide for 2020. I predicted a slight drop in property prices on the island.
The market showed signs of a slowdown with February sales figures across Spain down 6% year-on-year.
However, all bets and predictions were off once the Coronavirus pandemic took hold. We are now in uncharted territory and won’t know the full effect on Gran Canaria property for some time. [Read more…]
Every year, I write a guide to the current state of the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria property market and give my predictions for the next 12 months. Here’s the Las Palmas property 2020 report.
It’s a tricky job this year because there are so many factors that could affect property prices. Mostly, it has to be said, in a negative way.
On a local scale we have a deflating touristic bubble in Gran Canaria, the collapse of Thomas Cook, a decline in holiday rental investment and a big increase in new-build property. [Read more…]
Beachfront property along Las Canteras beach is in its own price bracket and often hard to value accurately.
This is due to several factors.
- Las Canteras property doesn’t come onto the market that often because beachfront owners tend to hold on to their apartments for a long time.
- Many are owned by non-residents who earn a rental income as well as using them for holidays.
- They have significant intangible valuation factors such as the desirability of the outdoor space.
However, since I’ve had four beachfront apartments for sale this year I have a clear idea of what their market value is in 2019. [Read more…]
I have three Las Canteras beachfront apartments for sale at the moment, each with outdoor space and beautiful views.
The Las Canteras beachfront is one of the most desirable property locations in the Canary Islands and the jewel in the crown of Las Palmas. Property here is always in high demand due to the views and potential for holiday rental.
Have a look at these properties and let me know if one of them is the place you’ve been looking for!
Two-bedroom beachfront apartment with terrace
This 100 square metre apartment has a lovely terrace with plenty of space for a table and chairs and boasts one of the best views of Las Canteras beach that you get.
It’s located just behind the Plaza de Saulo Torón with a direct view of the beach and the annual sand nativity scene.
The bright living room and open-plan kitchen face the terrace and the two bedrooms are cool and quiet.
Excellent home or holiday property with lots of potential as a holiday let.
Two bedroom apartment with balcony looking up Las Canteras beach
Located in a south-facing beachfront building, this 65 square metre, well distributed,two-bedroom apartment is an ideal holiday home or tourist rental.
Both bedrooms and the living room/ open kitchen look out at the view and the balcony runs the length of the apartment.
It’s located at La Puntilla and looks right up the length of Las Canteras beach.
Two bedroom apartment with terrace
This lovely two-bedroom apartment has just been completely refurbished and has a Vivienda Vacacional tourist rental license.
It consists of one large bedroom, a smaller second bedroom, bathroom, separate kitchen, good-sized living room, and a large terrace with direct beach and sea views. It is 57 square metres plus the terrace.
It’s an excellent beachfront investment that would generate revenue straight away and doesn’t need any modernisation.
Located where Olof Palme street meets the beachfront (by the statue of the kneeling fisherman).

This lovely Las Canteras beachfront apartment was reserved within days of going on the market.

Reserved for €320,000.
Now that Gran Canaria property prices have risen for several years, new build property in Las Palmas is becoming far more common.
You can’t walk for five minutes in the Puerto and Guanarteme districts without finding a new building site.
So far, the few new build properties that have hit the market sold fast at a premium to the second-hand property market. However, this could well change as the supply of new property increases. [Read more…]
A million euros is a decent budget for a high-end Gran Canaria property. It puts all but the largest penthouses, beachfront apartments and houses within your range. [Read more…]
