About the property

3 bedroomed villa, private pool, 10 minutes to sandy beach at Los Cristianos

Detached villa in South Tenerife with large private swimming pool (10.2 x 4.5 metres). This holiday villa is larger than the average holiday self-catering villa and is a home from home with views from the terrace of the sea.

The main terrace and pool are south facing so gets the sun all day.

There are 3 large bedrooms. The master suite has a huge queen sized bed and a walk in wardrobe plus a large ensuite bathroom with a large corner jacuzzi bath, toilet, bidet and vanity unit.

The second bedroom has a double bed and 2 double built in wardrobes, dressing table etc.

The third bedroom has two single beds and again 2 double built in wardrobes and a large safe.

In between these two bedrooms is a bathroom with corner shower, toilet and vanity unit.

Three spacious bedrooms and the master bedroom boasts a Super King size bed. A walk in wardrobe, luxurious fully tiled, en suite bathroom complete with vanity basin and corner bath.

The villa has two further bedrooms - one with a double bed and built in wardrobes and the other bedroom has twin beds and built in wardrobes. In between these two spacious bedrooms there is a modern shower room with corner shower, toilet and basin with vanity unit.

The spacious lounge has a dining table which pulls out to seat 6 people with ease. The large flat screen television receives Satellite TV which receives 200 British Channels including BBC, ITV etc plus Sky Channels including Movies and Sky Sports.

Plus there is a DVD player and books to read.

Free WifI in the villa so you can keep in touch with home or surf the internet.

For all your self-catering needs there is a separate fully fitted kitchen kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge/freezer, kettle and toaster.

For those warmer days there is a tower fan plus fans for each bedroom.

The holiday villa is situated in a lovely green oasis in a quiet location but within a 10 minute drive of the beaches and resorts of Los Cristianos or Playa las Americas, Tenerife. Guests book again and again.

Tenerife Villa, private pool, sea views: The villa is for the more discerning guests who wish to get away from the tourist area but still be in close proximity of all facilities. La Florida (so named for the lush palm trees) is an oasis situated between the Tenerife villages of La Camella and Valle San Lorenzo but still only a 10 minute drive to the sandy beaches of Los Cristianos or Playa las Americas. With lush gardens and a good sized (larger than usual)10.2 x 4.5 metre private swimming pool (solar cover to heat water in winter months) and patio area with sun beds and patio furniture.

The garden boasts some fruit trees and there are usually lemons on the tree most of the year. There is also a small herb garden for those who wish to cook. There is a book shelf full of books for you to read. I just ask if you need to take one home you replace with another. The dining table extends to sit 6 with ease. The property is much larger than the usual little boxes 'holiday let' villas in Tenerife - it is a home from home.

Your own home from home: This villa was our home so is larger than the usual holiday villa in Tenerife. The spacious lounge/dining room has a flat screen television with satellite channels, which include a range of British programmes. There is also a DVD player. The large patio doors open straight onto the patio so you have views of your private pool and the sea. The dining table extends to seat six.

There is a portable Industrial Fan for use around the villa for those warmer days. The property is surrounded by high Spanish walls making your stay secluded. This is my own villa and is only available to couples and families. The view from the patio area is of the sea and the mountains. A car is recommended - there is a hourly bus service from the end of the road to Los Cristianos.

I can hold the villa for a few days for guests to source flights and then I ask for a 10% non returnable deposit and the balance 8 weeks before the holiday.

There is a local person who looks ater the property for me and any problems must be reported during your stay.

Nearby attractions: The La Florida Tennis and Country Club is just a 2 minute walk. You only pay if you wish to use a tennis court. The villages of La Camella and Valle San Lorenzo are close by and offers a choice of local bars, shops, supermarkets, banks, internet cafes and several renowned restaurants offering a variety of food for all tastes. A folder in the villa gives suggestions.

The village of Valle San Lorenzo is an easy half mile walk and has bakeries offering fresh bread daily as well as everything else you could need. The Ecological Park is just a short drive away. A choice of sandy beaches within about a 10 minute drive. Impressive Mount Teide - spend the day and drive down to the other side of the island for completely different scenery. Ecological Park just 5 minutes away. The fantastic new Siam Park is just 10 minutes drive away.

Deanna purchased this villa in 1997

Why Deanna chose Arona

We purchased this property as it was away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts and the problems which can occur in resorts.

The location was ideal as it was only a 10 minute drive into Los Cristianos so we were close enough when we wanted a swim in the sea.

There is a small garden - so many villas in Tenerife just have a patio area but we wanted a villa with a garden with trees, plants and shrubs. The lemon tree has lemons for most of the year.

There are bars, restaurants, shops and banks with ATM's at Nearby Valle San Lorenzo which is only a half mile away.

What makes this villa unique

A lovely position in a quiet cul-de-sac and away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts - but close to everything you could need.

The swimming pool is much larger than usual holiday villas which are only usually a splash pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay at this wonderful villa which was beond our expectations for the price. The property is far enough away from the main resorts to be peaceful - but close enough for a visit. There were plnty of shops etc at nearby Valle San Lorenzo which was an easy walk (great bakers with fresh bread daily) We did go to the beach on a couple of days but it was lovely to relax by our own private pool which we swam in everyday. The villa is very spacious as are the gardens - a great place to relax and unwind. We will certainly be back.

Lovely villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a great holiday. The villa had everything we could wish for and was much larger than I thought. The separate kitchen was a benefit and although small (like most Spanish kitchens) it had plenty of work top and was well equipped with everything we could want including a kettle and coffee maker. There was a full oven and microwave and fridge freezer etc but we ate out most of the time as there were splendid restaurants (reasonable prices) within an easy walk.

The swimming pool was lovely and large enough for a proper swim and the sunbeds meant we spent a lot of time around by the pool.

I would recommend a car as the main resorts and beaches were a 10 minute drive away - but there were plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, banks and a large supermarket within a short walk. We were so happy in the villa and surrounding area that we only ventured down to the resort twice during a 2 week stay as we wanted peace and quiet.

We booked a car in advance at the airport and the owner provided us with clear directions. The villa was easy to find and just a 20 minute drive from the airport. Also on about 10 minutes from a golf course.

The nearby tennis/country club was great for a drink and a snack.

The villa was clean and well maintained and a joy to stay in and we would recommended it to family and friends and we have already booked for next year.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the review. The villa is in a quiet position yet within an easy walk to shops, bars and restuarant. The renowed Parasio restaurant at Valle San Lorezo is well used by locals and residents of the nearby resorts as it has gained a good reputation for good and reasonaly priced food. The tennis club is only at the end of the road and offers food and drinks during the day - you can even use their pool if you want a change from your own lovely private pool at the villa. If you feel energetic you can hire a tennis court. The Spanish lady who cleans the villa for me has been looking after the property since before we owned it and is reliable. Janet and her husband do any maintaince work are British and are only a phone call away in case of any problems while guests are on holiday. They make sure the villa is kept up to standard - although we do visit the villa ourselves on a regular basis. The pool is serviced my Bob, another Brit and everyone makes sure the place is maintained properly. The new Siam Park is well worth a visit for those who like the water and is only a 10 minute drive away. The Ecological Park is just over a 5 minute drive away and also well worth a visit. For golfers there are six courses and all within a 20 minute drive. The villa is for guests looking for a quiet holiday away from the main resorts but close enough for visits.

Lovely property with great views over the mountains down to the sea.

  • 3 of 5

Property in lovely avenue about one mile from the nearest shop facilities. The villa is very pleasant although the downside was that some electrical sockets were unsafe and require replacing. The beds in the third room were decidedly uncomfortable and the second bedroom only okay. However the villa had all all utensils expected although the English channels on T.V were not terrestrial channels although as we didn’t require the t.v this wasn’t a problem. Execellent space around the patio, living room area and the en suite bedroom and bathroom.

One needs a car to get around although the bus stop into Los Cristianos is just around the corner and apparently run hourly. We taxied a couple of times which cost around 15 Euros each way.

Given the location it would have been nice had there been the customary welcome pack when we arrived rather than having to go looking for shops open late in the day.

Lovely location and easy to relax.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We actually arrived in the villa ourselves for a few days. Your are the first guests to say you found some of the beds uncomfy. They are all good quality mattresses and no one has ever mentioned this before. Personally I find the beds very comfy. I think it is probably a case of the beds not being the same as the ones you are used to in your own house back home. There are all the terrestrial TV Channels available on the television - plus the Sky channels plus some USA channels and films etc so I can only assume you did not follow the TV instructions properly. We have been watching the TV since we arrived and all is fine. The villa was completely rewired about 2 years ago with new sockets throughout. My husband has checked all the sockets and they are all okay. I think you are probably referring to the clip on the socket surrounds. Unlike the sockets in the UK where the socket and the socket plate are all one unit - here the socket is separate from the surround.. So if someone is not careful unplugging an appliance (especially with a UK adapter) the surround can spring off. This is easily clipped back on. The actual electric socket is in not way affected and still perfectly safe. If you had thought there was a problem you only had to phone the number I give and any problems could have been resolved. I have checked the sockets myself and clipped the offending socket back on - now all in order. There is usually tea and coffee etc in the cupboard. I am please you still had a good holiday.

Fantastic villa in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was absolutely amaizing!! The description is as accurate as you can get. It was a fantastic location for us. Very quiet and pacefull. Most people suggested you need a car, we managed fine without. We got the bus in to Crustianos most days. 20 mins and only 1.50euro one way. We walked up to San lorenzo a few times to. Everyone was very friendly and always willing to help.

Been to Tenerife many time and always stayed in the middle of las America's or cristianos so this was a different experience and most definetley one of our best holidays.

The Villa had everything we needed. Very spaciouse clean and well maintained. The swimming pool was just fantastic!!! Big but not deep. Was great as I could walk around in it watching my 4 year old son and carrying his 7 month old brother who both loved it!

The tv has every channel you can think of. We didn't watch much but was handy to put a cartoon on for my son.

We all loved the villa and said we would most definetley return and highly recommend.

Thankyou very much Deanna you're home is wonderful

Helen and family x

Total tranquility in Tenerife!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this villa is simply spectacular! Near enough to the resorts (should you wish to be harassed by the 'lucky men' with their Roy Bones sunglasses) but far enough away for breath-taking views and complete quiet!

I would highly recommend a car to enable you to explore this staggering island but the buses were VERY easy as the villa is 2 mins from the nearest bus stop. That said, leaving the villa and this incredible pool behind proved far too much of a wrench for us so we didn't venture far! The area in which this villa is located is directly between two traditional villages which really give you a taste of the island that the big resorts don't!

I would definitely return and would without a doubt recommend this villa to others. Hassle free booking and great communication with owners - can't fault it!

Beautiful villa in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

The villa was well appointed and equipped. It is situated in a quiet residential area in the hills behind Los Cristianos - would definitely recommend hiring a car - there are food shops within walking distance but there is a very good and reasonably priced supermarket in Cabo Blanco a short drive away.

The garden and swimming pool are delightful- the pool is a good size for swimming- would have been in more but the weather took a cool turn while we were there - due to the height of the villa above sea level the temperatures were roughly 4degrees cooler than down at the coast.

We had a small problem with one of the toilets during our stay which was dealt with within 3 hours of reporting it- very efficient.

All in all the villa is great and we would not hesitate in recommending it and would certainly hope to visit again in the future

Owner's Response: Pleased to hear you had a good holiday. Yes I understand there were a few cool days while you were there - it was the same on the coast. Very unusual for April. At the moment it is warmer at the villa than on the coast - but you can never tell.

Villa was lovely, as advertised in quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well equipped and clean. The outside area is great to chill out. Enjoy a barbeque and the views down to Los Cristianos. We were lucky to take full advantage of the pool during our stay and there is plenty of seating to enjoy the sun or shade. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a chill out holiday away from the crowds but still with easy access using hire car.

The villa is situated at La Florida between the two Tenerife villages of La Camella and Valle San Lorezo. Los Cristanos is the nearest resort and is about a 10 minute drive away and Playa las Americas approximately 12 minutes away.

You are away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts while being close enough to enjoy all the facilities. Valle San Lorenzo is only a half a mile, easy walk away, and boasts a variety of shops, restaurants and bars and includes bakeries which bake fresh bread daily.

A car is recommended but there is an hourly bus service to Los Cristianos from the end of the road. If you get fed up with your own good sized private pool at the villa The La Florida tennis club is only a 2 minute walk away where you can enjoy a drink or a snack or even a game of tennis. The villa was our home for 8 years is much larger than the usual 'holiday let' villas around.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite) this spacious villa sleeps 6.

Other Activities: Tennis club within walking distance. Choice of 6 golf courses within a 20 minute drive

Golf: Within 20 minute drive of 6 excellent golf courses including,

Golf del Sur - 18 hole - championship course

Amarillo Golf - 18 hole - a demanding course

Los Palos - a 9 hole friendly course

Playa las Americas Golf - a farily new 18 hole course in the main resort

Adeje Golf Course - a 18 hole course just outside Playa Fanabe

Abamo Golf - 18 hole course at the five star hotel

There are courses for all capabilities. Please ask if more details on golf is required as my husband has played all the courses. Rounds can be booked in advance.
