Christmas 2009

  • 5 of 5

Myself, partner Chris and mum stayed at Villa Maximus over Christmas. It was the first time any of us had been away over Christmas, we were made to feel very welcome and at home. We were greeted by the housekeeper Gail who showed us around the villa, she is always on the end of the phone if you need her for anything. There was even a christmas tree up in the lounge.

The villa is set up on a hill on the side of the cliff face, and has amazing views out to sea and across to La Gomera. Los Gigantes village is only 5-10 minutes walk down the hill, and you can always jump in a taxi if you are loaded up with shopping on the way back.

The villa is beautifully decorated with all modern appliances. If you want a relaxing luxury break then Villa Maximus is ideal.

Fabulous !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing villa and location! Most beautiful surroundings - a part of Tenerife you couldn’t anticipate or dream of ... Los Gigantes unpretentious and very natural ... at the villa with spectacular views we felt we were on the Cornish or North Antrim coast plus the tropical climate and sounds to go along with it.

Villa really well appointed - very spacious and clean. Everything you need plus more and all maintained well. Booking process with Nick (owner) very efficient and responsive. Meet and greet with Jennie ....very helpful and no hiccups. Felt at ease to contact if any queries. Kids loved the pool (very clean) and we felt so lucky to be here and blown away every morning to wake up in such amazing surroundings.

Special mention to Eileen Oliver from Concierge Tenerife ... she went out of her way to stay in touch and give really good recommendations ... I’d definitely check in with her if staying in the villa - what a lovely lady and most helpful ! Really enjoyed our day out with Tenerife Sailing Charters (thank you Paul and Natalia who were fantastic hosts and very reliable) ....

Overall experience I’d rate 10/10!

Amazing location with fantastic views, really quiet spot with a short walk to shops, we all loved it

  • 5 of 5

It really is a stunning location with an amazing view, it’s also in such a quiet spot you really can relax, the kids loved the pool and we could all walk to shops and restaurants if we wanted to, a taxi when called always arrived in two minutes, lunch at Tippsy Terrace was great because the kids could play mini golf or tennis, darts or pool, definitely going back again, we loved it.

Lovely quiet location with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

The communication from booking through to arrival and the duration of the stay was excellent. We were warmly welcomed by Janie and shown through the villa, which was spacious both inside and out for the three generations of our family and well equipped. The view from the villa is undoubtedly the biggest draw and we appreciated the quietness of the location. We managed the walk up from the town and from the nearby Lidl supermarket no problem and appreciated the exercise, though the last section is very steep. The swimming pool afforded the opportunity to cool off and the outdoor area provided ample choice between sun and shade. We have had a lovely break away and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this comfortable and attractive villa.

Amazing Views, Great Outside Space

  • 5 of 5

Just returned after a week in this gorgeous villa (late January 2018). WOW, amazing place.

The initial wow factor of the pool/garden and outside eating area as you open the gate just gets better as you see the views of the rocks, the sea and the marina from either the sunny patio that is huge and on 2 levels or from the lounge area windows. There is plenty of seating both inside and out, including bedrooms and bathrooms. A spacious kitchen with everything you could need whilst on holiday.

Communication from the villa owner was very good and the villa manager who met us at the villa was friendly and explained everything about the villa clearly and we felt like they cared we had a good holiday.

The only struggle we had was parking - although there is a space outside there was rarely a time we were able to use it as it was full and it could be quite a way down the hill before we could park our vehicle which meant a trek for the driver (luckily not me)!

And now the negative.......leaving that beautiful view!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and appreciating all the hard work and effort myself and my team put into ensuring all our guests have an amazing holiday at the villa. My 1st impressions 10 years ago when I first walked through the gate to buy the villa was the same, The Pool and Garden Area and then being drawn to the Terrace to see the wonderful view it's truly remarkable and you can stand or sit their for hours just watching the activity in the Marina and the boats out to sea, there really is no other villa like it in the area. Hope to see you again soon.

This Outstanding 4 Bed Excutive Villa is located in the picturesque fishing village of Los Gigantes and has the benefit of a quiet peaceful position high up next to the Cliffs of Los Gigantes allowing amazing Sea Views towards the islands of La Gomera, La Palma & the sheer Sea Cliff face of Los Gigantes (2nd highest Sea Cliffs in Europe). Los Gigantes Village & it's Sea Cliff's are popular with tourists who come to view the beautiful village and awe inspiring Cliffs. Los Gigantes has its own Marina with restaurants and gift shops, the village it's self has a small square with a beautiful little church at it's centre. The village centre has many great pubs restaurants including 'Rincon de Juan Carlos' renowned to be the best gourmet experience in Tenerife. Los Gigantes is more suited to family's and couples looking for peace and quiet although within a 30 minute drive you can soon get to the busy resorts of Las Americas and Los Cristianos with their Theme parks and all night bars and Disco's

Recommended Places to Visit

The Giants – Cliffs of Los Gigantes:

Plunging an impressive 1600 feet into the Atlantic, this curtain of stone lining the northwest corner of Tenerife are absolutely stunning. The best way to see them is by boat, although they're also mighty damned impressive from one of the quayside bars with glass of frosty beer in hand too.

Teide National Park:

No visit to the island is complete without at least a drive through the pine forests to the bizarre lunar landscape of one of Spain's most popular national parks. And of course, once there, you can't miss the big pointy thing jutting into the sky. That's the volcano. Not just any volcano though, Mount Teide is the world's third largest. Take the cable car to the top for a God-like view of the surrounding islands.


Tenerife's very own Shangri-la. This picturesque village cligns precariously to the side of the mountains in the north-west of Tenerife, hidden from the rest of civilisation and looking very much like it did centuries ago. A switchback road corksrews up and down to the the village from Santiago del Teide, so if you're of a nervous disposition you might want to close your eyes (not if you're the driver obviously). Failing that, book one of our Tenerife island tours and let someone else take the strain.

Siam Park:

Not a natural attraction admittedly, but still one that shouldn't be missed. Named as one of the best 10 water parks in the world, if you like your thrills and spills wet, you have just got to go to this Thai-themed water park with loads of scream-inducing rides and slides, a gigantic wave pool complete with gold sand beach, and a mini-aquatic park just for kids.

Loro Park:

A veritable Noah's Ark of animals, an artificial iceberg complete with snow and penguins and one of the best dolphin shows this side of the Atlantic are to be found amongst the 8,000 palm trees and exotic jungle of Loro Parque in Puerto de la Cruz. That's not to even mention the bicycle riding parrots, the killer whales and the sharks...or the gorillas, the flamingos's no good, you'll just have to go and see for yourself.


Tenerife is golf mad with courses at Abama a unique game of golf awaits you at this exceptional 18-hole course, a genuine work of art created by Dave Thomas. Fabulous views of the sea and the island of La Gomera await you at all of the holes and you can improve your swing on the practice green (3 holes) or just sit and relax at the Club House.

Other Activities:

Self drive Boat Hire, Dolphin and Whale watching Boat Trips, Jet Ski rentals etc.

Car Hire:

Direct from the Airport try

Very competitively Priced and Great Cars and Service. Average Price per week 90 euros.
