Great location, perfect home for beach and pool vacation
The house and the location are great for a beach and pool vacation. The home has everything you need for. Contact was really nice and all questions were quickly answered.
Just arrived home after a six week stay here, refreshed and relaxed. The villa itself is spacious and airy. There were only two of us and we only needed the one bedroom but families of four or six would not feel crowded. The bed in the main bedroom is large and comfortable and when you pull back the curtains in the morning the view out over the bedroom balcony out to the Atlantic Ocean is a great start to the day. We’ve stayed in rentals where a ‘sea view’ means straining the neck and adding a bit imagination, but the owners description here is bang on. On the back bedroom balcony you can see the higher reaches of Teide, Spain’s highest mountain. ,Speaking of owners, Rick is quick to respond to any questions, always friendly and helpful. You are a wee bit away from shops and restaurants and it might be best having a hired car, we always do anyway. If you choose to cook in the kitchen, it is well equipped with main oven, microwave and electric hotplate. Plenty cutlery as well as spatulas etc. Can’t comment on public transport as we never used but did see busses passing on the main road a couple of hundred metres away.
Would we go back? Oh yes, in process of booking at the moment. 😀�
Basic but pleasant
The villa is spacious and has a beautiful view of the sea from the balcony. It's well equipped (no dishwasher or ironing board as stated though) and we pretty much had use of the pool to ourselves whilst we were there.
It could do with a bit if TLC however....some exterior peeling paint, door handles and locks that need some attention, loose handrails and a couple of broken tiles by the pool etc. Although generally clean there were a few issues .... some of the bedding needed a wash (and we were a few pillows short), the cooker hood was greasy and the sofa and dining chairs could do with a clean for example. We were unable to get wi-fi for most of our holiday either.
The area is really quiet (local town is about 20 minutes walk away) but there's a beach 5 minutes walk round the corner (if you don't mind a little bit of scrabbling at the end) and I found some good jogging routes nearby.
Overall we had a relaxing, lovely time and enjoyed our stay.
Very pleased you enjoyed your stay so much.
I was surprised and disappointed you only gave 3 stars as our other reviews have been 5 star.
Unfortunate timing as I went out to the house myself straight after your stay and completed an annual refresh. Exterior is now repainted and al the locks replaced.
There was an iron and clear area for ironing in the utility room.
Your initial booing was for 5 people. The house is not marketed for more than 6. When you asked if it was OK to have 2 more guests taking your total to 7. I agreed plus no extra charge was made. As the extra guests were added last minute there was no opportunity to organise extra bedding. I have now purchased new extra bedding should this scenario arise in the future.
Hope you have the opportunity to visit again.
Heerlijk rustig en mooie plek.
We hebben een top vakantie gehad. Het huis ligt heel mooi direct aan de zee. Voor het strand moet je even een klein stukje lopen, maar dan heb je wel de beschikking tot een van de mooiste en rustigste natuurlijke stranden van Tenerife. Ik zou hier zo weer na toegaan. Wij waren hier in de herfstvakantie. Het weer was heerlijk. We hadden het gezamenlijke zwembad alle dagen helemaal voor ons zelf. Een echte top plek voor rust zoekers en natuur liefhebbers. Naar el Medano loop je in 15 min langs het strand naar toe.
The house is well located to enjoy the fantastic water sports offered in El Medano or to enjoy its very family oriented beach resort with an abundance of fantastic restaurants and cafes. The house is well equipped with 2 lower terraces and 2 balconies. The rear balcony overlooks the sea and has direct access to a great safe pool suitable for all ages.
You'd need a car to get about but definitely worth it.
Ideal location, great family villa
We were impressed with our villa in El Medano. The location was very convenient for us being close to the airport but also a good base for many of the day trips we wanted to drive to (such as waterslide parks, Jungle Park and access to Mt Teide). The apartment was a generous size for our family of 2 adults and 2 young children and was spotlessly clean. All the facilities were fine other than it lacked a TV which might bother some people but we didn't even notice it wasn't there so was no problem for us. The immediate area is also very nice. There is a 5 minute scenic walk north over the lava rock to a quiet little beach and cove which was perfect for us and also good for surfing (there are also some body boards at the villa). In summary, a good location, nice clean and functional apartment which offered great value for money.
