About the property

Deluxe villa for 4-8 persons, heated pool, fully furnished, beach in front

The villa Estrella del Mar, Starfish, recently built is situated at the foot of the mountain la Pelada, just outside the village of El Medano, at a stone's throw from an enclosed, idyllic beach.

The villa is a spacious and luxurious house, situated at its own road. The outside entrance is secured with a gate and passing through the gate you approach the front door via the garden and the terrace. The house boasts three terraces, one directly situated near the entrance and enjoying the morning sun. The terrace is equipped with teak wood tables providing seating facilities for up to 10 people.

At the back of the villa the second terrace running parallel to the house, is entirely enclosed with plenty of sunshine in the afternoon and evening. It provides enough room for sunbathing or dining with 10 to 12 guests. You reach the terraces through the big and luxurious kitchen ( 60 m2!!) and the hallway. With the outside stairs you have direct access to the pool and the garden.

The Island of Tenerife: Tenerife is the fertile jewel of the Canaries, dominated by the imposing volcano, the Pico del Teide, more than 3,700 metres high, which is an important tourist attraction. It is the largest island of the Canaries and offers, next to its famous beaches, remarkable features.

One example is the rugged natural park of las Canadas, an extensive area around the Pico del Teide, bringing to mind a lunar landscape.

The northern part of Tenerife is characterized by fertile, green valleys, like the Orotavo valley with its banana plantations.

The most important beach resort on the north eastern coast, is the main capital of Puerto de la Cruz. Most tourists however, prefer to stay in the south western part of the island, where the villa Estrella del Mar is situated. The south is popular because of the subtropical climate. You can find well-known holiday resorts like Los Cristianos and Playas de las Americas here, busy and touristic. In the south of Tenerife a visit to to the Atlantic garde

The weather: Tenerife has all year round pleasant temperatures with very little rain. The climate is balmy and …. Because of the continuous north eastern passage winds Alisio and the Gulf stream. In the north average rainfall is slightly higher than in the south.

Average temperatures July-Aug-Sept 24°C, water temperature 22°C

Average temperatures Jan-Feb-Mar 19°C, water temperature 19°C

Tenerife is the ideal destination for a break to forget the northern European winter. With an average flight time of approximately 4 hours you find yourself in a pleasant subtropical climate all year round. Tenerife is a versatile holiday destination. If you love sunbathing the southern part of Tenerife, where our house is located, is the best destination. But you can also visit one of the many nature and animal parks, picturesque villages with folklore activities, museums in Santa Cruz of discover other places of interest.

Tenerife offers numerous possibilities for hiking. Not only in the volcanic park of the Teide, but also the beaches and barranco (canyon) offer numerous well documented hiking trails. Vilaflor, at an altitude of 1500 metres, has an abundance of hiking opportunities.

At the culinary level you will appreciate Tenerife. The number of restaurants in the tourist centres is of course overwhelming.

Great Villa with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the Villa. Plenty of room and everything we needed. Everything was well maintained and with the feeling of a home. Unfortunately the weather was not as great as we had hoped as we had steady winds the whole time we stayed. We were therefore not able to use the pool area as much as we would have liked. That however is no fault of the property and we can without a doubt give it our top marks.

Stunning Villa in El Medano

  • 5 of 5

,Stunning villa overlooking the sea, 5 minutes walk to a sandy cove. Huge living space there were 8 adults and 2 children and so much room there could have been more of us. Ultra modern with every facility, lots and lots of crockery, cutlery, knives, forks, glasses etc.Loads of outdoor space with 4 areas to sit, dine or sunbathe. Lovely chunky woooden tables, chairs and sun loungers nice pool.Three areas to dine for 10 people two outside and one inside. If the bedrooms were a bit bigger this could take more people than 8 it truly is huge my family all said they would use it again.

Medano centre is a thirty minute walk along the coast or by road only a few minutes by car. We love Medano (we have been going for 27 years) loads of places to eat nice shops lovely beach not commercial but has a vibrant buzz.

Sehr schönes Ferienhaus!

  • 4 of 5

Man kan viele gute Dinge über dieses grosszügige, modern und geschmackvoll eingerichtete und helle Haus am Stadtrand von El Medano sagen: 5 Fussminuten von einem idyllischen und einsamen Strand, Meeresblick von mehreren Balkonen, Blick auf die Berge von einem Panoramafenster im 1. Stock: einfach klasse. Der Ort El Medano ist ein El Dorado für Surfer, ein sympathischer, von der Grösse nicht erdrückender Ort, eingebettet in eine sehr schöne Hügellandschaft.

Wir würden trotz vieler Vorteile dieses Haus wohl nicht nochmal buchen, da die Lärmbelästigung von dem nahe gelegenen Flughafen und die lärmende Heizung für den für unsere Bedürfnisse (5 Personen)zu kleinen Pool (ca. 15 kvm) ikke unerheblich waren.

Sehr freundlicher und reeller Vermieter, freundliche Betreuung von der Deutschen Anke!

Why only 5? We would give it a 10!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first trip to El Medano which certainly will not be our last. The villa is just fabulous, everything in there makes you feel comfortable and like "at home" (respectively even better ;-)). Also, it is perfect if you travel with kids, ours loved to jump in the pool first thing of the day and to play at the sandy beach, which is pretty and close by the house. Last but not least, a really nearby kitesurfing spot and a relaxed "downtown" of small El Medano make us look forward to the next time.

Car: recommended

El Medano is not the typical tourist trap with neon lights, pubs and fish & chips shops. It's a world famous spot for wind and kite surfers, thanks to the ever blowing wind, great waves and world cup surf contests. Most of the tourists staying in El Medano are English, German and of the sport loving kind.

The village is situated on the south west coast of Tenerife, entirely bordering the sea with a wooden ramp for strolling along the beach front. The beach of El Medano is about 3 kilometres long stretching from the centre to the rusty-red mountain of Montana Roja.

El Medano is primarily a pedestrian village with a large square in the centre where the locals celebrate and organize activities. Many Canarios (inhabitants of the Canary Islands) visit El Medano over the weekends. Around the square some restaurants, a hotel and a children's playground are located. The square ends at the central beach where many of the locals meet. In the morning the elderly villagers come for a swim.

Other Activities: Kitesurfing

Golf: As mentioned before, Tenerife is the place to go for all watersport lovers. But whereas El Medano is the place-to-be for surfing, Golf del Sur is the meeting place for playing golf. Each year both places show up in current sport programmes because of the world cup events. Parasailing and parapente are some of the other branches of sport or leisure activities to be practiced on Tenerife. On the cultural side you can visit concerts and museums.
