A retractable clothes line is fitted to the terrace. There is a locked utility room with clothes airer, ladder and stacked washing machine and air dryer.
The apartment complex is laid out in a very interesting way with walkways through well developed gardens with many flowers and palm trees.
It is regretted that the Community Pool is presently closed as it did not meet recent European safety requirements. There is presently no date for completion as the work is yet to start.
This townhouse / apartment is situated in an attractively laid out and secure gated community in "San Rafael" pretty close to pretty well all amenities and sports. The apartment Complex is monitored by private security personnel and entry is permitted if one has a high security resident's key.The apartment is fitted out to a very high standard with excellent decor including original oil paintings and watercolours and has excellent functionality. The location of San Rafael is one of the most popular "night time" locations in Playa las Americas, Tenerife and is extremely busy and very multicultural. There are beautiful views from the large roof-top terrace facing due West towards the setting sun with direct sunshine from midday to sunset. Spectacular sunsets and occasional firework displays.
Excellent indoor facilities. Proximity to shops, pubs, restaurants and the Troya beach a five minute walk away, and the famous "Geranium Walk" to Puerto Colon in one direction and Los Cristianos in the other direction.
This townhouse complex is close to the beach and the action in Playa de las Americas, and the unit itself is clean, comfortable and in generally good repair.
There are a few problems, however. The first is security. Apparently, for security reasons, the complex gives out very few keys. This means that most of the people who live in the complex don't have keys, so people gather on the street around the outer gate and when someone opens the gate they all go in. Do all these people live in the complex? Who knows? Sometimes there is a security guard at the gate, sometimes not. I certainly didn't want to have a confrontation with any of these people, so I, too, let them in.
The second problem is the complex itself. It's really run down. There are units with broken windows, and the grounds are not clean. I saw piles of discarded items outside one of the units, and trash strewn on the walkway, including a dirty diaper.
The third problem is parking. The owner said there is ample street parking, but on three occasions I drove around for over an hour trying to find a place to park. I ended up parking in a very rutted empty field about 500 meters away. Annoying.
The fourth problem is the nightclub next door that blares music until 4 a.m. Even with earplugs and my head sandwiched between pillows, I couldn't sleep at all.
The fourth problem is the owner's local agent. He didn't answer phone calls or texts. He is very difficult to reach and you need to reach him to receive and return the keys.
The television did not work, there was no bedding on the third bed and no spare bedding at all.
I would not recommend this rental.
Ho trovato l'appartamento bello e pulito, la spiaggia vicina ed una bella vista mare dalla terrazza. "Vicini di casa" un po' strani, bisogna adattarsi ma non abbiamo avuto alcun problema. Nel complesso io ci tornerei
The complex is awful. Groups of youths on every corner, within the gated compound. We did not feel safe. We were the only holiday makers within the complex. The other residents were of unsavoury and unusual appearance. I did not feel we could safely open the curtains at any time of day or night. We did not feel safe entering or leaving our apartment at any time. Pool is closed, we would not have felt safe sunbathing by the pool if it had been open. Key security for main gate is a joke as the " security" guards allowed every one through once the gate was opened by a delegated key holder ( ourselves, and we never saw any one else with a key). Large amount of unsavoury people entering and leaving complex at all times of day and night. Spoke to owner who did not seem to be aware of the situation, we asked for refund and were offered % 50 which we accepted and found alternative accommodation as quickly as we could. We wish to stress that these comments relate to the complex itself, and not the surrounding area of The Veronicas.
The house itself is nice and as described, but we could never recommend for any one to stay here.
We zijn 2 weken in dit huis geweest. Wat in de omschrijving van de advertentie staat klopte geheel met de woning, alleen in het contract wat we toegezonden kregen nadat we de woning hadden uitgekozen stonden allerlei zaken die niet in de woning aanwezig waren o.a. wifi. Dit vonden wij wel een beetje vreemd.
Het huis was volgens ons lange tijd niet bewoond geweest, behalve dan door vele kakkerlakken en ander ongedierte wat ons in grote getale verwelkomden toen wij binnenkwamen. Hier waren wij ook niet heel erg blij mee... Wij hebben veel geld betaald om het huis schoon te maken, dus verwachtten wij ook in een schoon huis te komen. De deuren van de badkamers zaten vol bruingele vlekken, te smerig om over na te denken!
Het dakterras was geweldig, dat maakte veel goed. Helaas was het geluid 's nachts dat van de vele discotheken uit de omgeving kwam, verschrikkelijk. Het was onmogelijk om de ramen open te zetten, wat heel jammer was gezien het feit dat het ook 's nachts heel warm bleef. Uit nood deden wij de fan aan die bij ons bed stond, die maakte een ruisend geluid wat enigszins het lawaai van buiten overstemde en waarop wij ook in slaap konden vallen. Pas na 5 uur in de ochtend werd het buiten stil en konden wij de ramen open zetten.
De zee was heerlijk, het uitzicht vanaf het dakterras was ook mooi. Wij zouden dit huis niet aan anderen adviseren.
de 3 sterren die wij geven zijn dan ook alleen omdat het strand dichtbij was en de zee heerlijk was om in te zwemmen. Tenerife is een aanrader, dit huis niet.
My wife, I and two teenage children stayed at this house in August for our annual summer holidays. It was a most pleasant experience there and it did not disappoint. The house was very big for a holiday rental but nevertheless it was extremely comfortable.
This property is superbly equipped, furnished and tastefully decorated and so central ! It's furnishing and décor are quite remarkable for a rental property and not what we have usually experienced . We didn't think that we could afford a property such as this but we found the price very reasonable for the facilities and quality offered.
The house is quite near the Troya beach and the centre of night-life of Playa de las Americas. Everything was within a short walk and no need for cars or taxis save for the occasional longer trips. Taxis were in abundance. We enjoyed a very active and enjoyable holiday without travelling too much. Everything we wanted to do was close by and just a few steps away. We really liked the walk along the sea front and beach each morning. Many inexpensive restaurants and bars are within a three minute walk. There are many live music bars and nightclubs and surprisingly many cater for families such as ours.
It is a large property and is very impressive in size, décor and the bedroom accommodation was very good with en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen and sitting room beyond our expectations. The architecture of the rooms are a feature in themselves in that they are not just boxes of differing sizes.
We think that the top floor terrace is a fantastic feature and is also very private. The views of the sea are to die for. It did get very hot and we found the terrace shower a real bonus as we cooled down very quickly.
Our holiday was made more enjoyable by staying at this property and we will definitely be back subject to budget. We found a real gem of a place that situated us very well.
I, my wife, brother and two teenage children stayed at this house in July 2015 for three very enjoyable weeks. On arrival it was clear that this property is right in the centre of things in Playa de las Americas near the Troya beach and a short walk away from the main nightlife centre in Tenerife. We were “blown away” with the quality of this house and its central location. Its furnishings and equipment were way above the average rental. Although not a problem for us we noted that the complex was not very suitable for disabled visitors.
The complex was very secure as one needed a key to get in or out of the complex. Although it was quite near a very active night-time venue it was not noisy. The grounds of the complex are very pleasant. The swimming pool was unfortunately closed when we were there. At first we thought that this would be a problem but as the Troya beach is only a few steps away it turned out better for us than the poolside.
It was a great base for an enjoyable and active holiday. Everything we wanted to do is in walking distance – sports, beaches, pubs, restaurants and night-clubs and we found that our hired car was rarely used except when we made occasional day trips to the volcano or Los Gigantes. There was no parking available for us within the complex but there was a plentiful supply of parking spaces on the road outside the complex.
The house is laid out over three floors and is truly very impressive in size, décor and furnishings. Moulded plaster ceilings and chandeliers – we never expected that. We were impressed with the separate kitchen with black granite worktop, large dining room and sitting areas on the ground floor. The black leather settees were very comfortable and the quality much better than we expected. It became clear to us that this property was furnished for the owners use and not as a typical rental property. Several original oil paintings and drawings are hanging in the rooms.
The kitchen was fully equipped and had more appliances than we expected. We didn’t use the kitchen facilities much as we dined out locally virtually all of the time.
The sitting room is truly impressive. Granite topped fireplace with over-mantle mirror with bright curtains, central chandelier. The dining room had a large table and comfortable chairs. There is a Flat Panel TV with a DVD player and a music centre with CD / radio. The TV had a piped signal and one could watch English channels and keep up with the news.
This townhouse is situated in a location with many bars and clubs within a few minutes walk of the best "night life" in Los Cristianos and Playa las Americas. A couple of minutes walk to the beach, bars restaurants and sports and water based activity. The Casino is also within a few minutes walk. The apartment is located close to the "Geranium" walk which is popular for evening strolls etc.
