Great location and fantastic roof terrace!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideal for the two of us to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the sun. Two massive plus points are the location of the apartment in the centre of the village within walking distance of all the bars & restaurants on offer, and the superb roof terrace which is ideal for chilling out with a drink and a good book.

We wouldn't hesitate in booking to stay here again in the future as we had a great holiday. Sven's communications and information were excellent and Yvonne was on hand to greet us on our arrival. We had no need to contact Yvonne at all during our stay as we had no problems at all...apart from having to go home after 11 nights.

Highly recommend Vida Loca and El Medano for a brilliant holiday.

Exactly what we were hoping for. Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

The property was equipped with all the necessities one would need. The lady that greeted us on our arrival was very helpful and polite. The property has an outstanding roof terrace, which we spent many hours chilling out, reading and drinking on! The terrace is delightfully adorned with lovely plants and has a view of the sea. Amenities are within a very short distance from the property. The area itself was wonderful. Very relaxing. Wonderful food and we did not manage to eat at all the restaurants available as we were spoiled for choice. My partner and I are already looking in to when we can visit again. We would go tomorrow if we had enough holiday remaining. We would definitely like to stay at this property again. 5 star experience and a big thumbs up from us!

Wonderful apartment with amazing terrace

  • 5 of 5

This compact apartment has everything you need for your stay and is very well laid out to maximize space and comfort. The 2 ring stove top is ideal for cooking should you wish but there is such a great choice of local restaurants in easy walking distance. We were warmly greeted by Yvonne on arrival who made us feel most welcome. The terrace is just fabulous with sun all day long. El Medano is an unspoilt not overly commercialised place in which we enjoyed a wonderfully sunny break visiting the beach, cafes and restaurants. We would highly recommend this apartment for it's terrace and overall proximity to the centre and the seafront. A truly relaxing stay.

A Glorious 10 Days in El Medano

  • 5 of 5

1st time in El Medano, a very relaxed place with some great restaurants and bars where you can chill out and watch every kind of surfer!

The apartment was great and has everything you need with the bonus of a washing machine. The crowning glory is the roof terrace, private, sun all day long, didn't want to leave it. The service was excellent, great directions from Sven, Taxi found it with no problems and Yvonne was waiting to show us around and she is available if you have any issues but we had none at all. The apartment is in a very nice block in a safe neighbourhood with 2 supermarkets within a short walk and the sea front is very close - A fantastic 10 days :- )

Super studio with great roof terrace

  • 5 of 5

Just had a most enjoyable 17 day holiday in the studio "Vida Loca" which is located in a very clean, well maintained residential building. When I arrived on the Saturday evening (following Sven's very precise directions) Yvonne (the local contact) was waiting for me, she showed me all the amenities of the studio including the fabulously large terrace.

Everything in the well equipped studio was very clean with more than enough bed linen and towels for my stay. Wifi worked very efficiently at all times. The kitchenette was small but with everything necessary for simple meal preparation. The studio was spacious even when the sofa bed was pulled out for sleeping and positively huge when it was folded back up.

The jewel in the crown for this property has to be the terrace - even nicer than the photos in the listing. Lovely plants all around the walls, 2 loungers as well as a table and 2 chairs for meals outside (especially nice for breakfast just after the sun had come up.

The studio is on the third floor (efficient lift) but there is then a small flight of narrow stairs up to the actual studio - this could present problems for anyone with mobility issues.

I had a really enjoyable stay in Sven's studio in my favourite place in Tenerife - El Medano is a nice little unspoilt gem of a town with a super beach.

Sven and Yvonne - Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes neues Jahr!

The beach is only 2 minutes away on foot. There are several supermarkets in the vicinity which are open even on Sundays. For surfers of El Medano is a paradise, because there is always blowing a pleasant breeze.

El Medano (the dune), is the synonym for Tenerife's longest beaches and the popular high winds for windsurfers and kiters. This region can be regarded as absolutely safe sun, the sun shines at least 3-5 hours per day. Throughout the year, blowing trade winds, thereby prevails here a dry climate and it rains very rarely. , Also known as El Medano Surf City is the windiest place in Tenerife.

The wind usually blows more than 4 Bft. Strong Wind days usually reach 5-7 BfT and peaks 9-11 Bft. The wind blows here side-shore and the wave reaches 1.50 m to 2.50 m. The spot is ideal for fun-surfing, diving and kite surfing.

El Medano has developed from the former small fishing village to a thriving community. The place is not a tourist stronghold. The holidaymakers still lose themselves among native Tinerfeños.

There are supermarkets, nice cafes, bistros and restaurants. Fish lovers will fully get their costs. At the pier and in the center you can enjoy inexpensive fresh fish and seafood. Directly on the town beach lies the Plaza 'El Medano'. Here in the evening takes place the very life between locals and tourists. The Playa Medano is 2 km long, starts and ends at the Plaza in the south in front of the red mountain, the Montana Roja. Behind, the 3 km long Playa de Tejita is with coarse sand and a nudist beach.

The mere tourist places Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas is carried out via the motorway in about 20 minutes. The Tenerife South Airport (Reina Sofia) is located by El Medano about 7 km away. You can reach the airport in about 10 minutes.

Should the wind blow once not from the right direction, so the bay offers opportunities for diving and snorkeling in the many water underworld. There are also diving and snorkelling courses. Also for bikers there are excellent leisure facilities. Whether or without guidance with an experienced biker guys from the bike shop medanobike.com, are the setting and the wonderful island to explore. The bikes can be parked safely.
