|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Amarilla Bay is situated on the coast at the southernmost tip of Tenerife on the outskirts of the peaceful town of Costa Del Silencio.
A beautiful 2-bedroomed apartment is available on the ground floor with incredible sea-views. The apartment is maintained to the highest standard by the owner and is fully-fitted with everything that you might require to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable including quality furnishings, air-conditioning and WiFi.
You can sit on the terrace or in the beautiful lounge and stare for hours at the sea right in front of you...so close that you can actually hear and smell it. The sunrise and sunsets are particularly spell-binding...and if you get up early, you may be lucky enough to see pods of wild dolphins playing in the bay.
The private walkway in front of the apartment is rarely used as there is another path closer to the sea so you are not disturbed as you sit and relax on the terrace.
The american-style kitchen is small, but fully-fitted with a full oven, electric hob, fridge freezer, microwave etc. should you choose to cook during your stay.
The main bedroom has a double bed and fitted wardrobes. The second bedroom has twin beds that can be pulled together if required. Both bedrooms have very comfortable mattresses and ceiling fans.
The Resort itself is very peaceful and has a supermarket, bar, mature gardens and communal swimming pool on-site. It is within easy walking distance of all the local amenities. If you don't wish to drive to explore the island, the local bus service is extremely good, cheap and easy to use. The nearest bus stop is only a 5-minute walk from the apartment.
If you are looking for a more relaxing holiday with fantastic views in a peaceful area of southern Tenerife (away from the 'madding crowd') then Amarilla Bay is the place for you!
I lived and worked in Tenerife for 18-years before moving back to the UK where I currently reside. I visit the Island several times a year to visit my friends and ensure that my apartment is very well-maintained.
I can offer lots of advice on things to see and do whilst you are on holiday and Linda, the lady who looks after my apartment, is only ever a phone-call away should you need anything during your stay. She is very helpful and fluent in both English and Spanish.
Victoria Courtney purchased this apartment in 2006
Every time that I visit, I am reminded of how the peace, tranquility and unimpeded view of the sea can calm your soul.
Although I lived on the Island for many years, I can still just sit for hours gazing out to sea with nothing to disturb me.
If you have a hectic lifestyle or just like to get close to nature, then you will find this is the perfect place to unwind.
Although there are many apartments boasting sea views, there are very few that actually have the sea on their doorstep...so close that you can actually hear the waves lapping against the rocks and taste the salt on your tongue.
the picture from the web-site (looking out over the terrace to the sea) perfectly captures the mood of this apartment; it feels as if it is at the very southern-tip of the island (and possibly is), is not overlooked by any other dwelling, and has limited number of passing walkers (no cars) who are at least 25m away. So if u want peace and quiet, away from the razzmatazz that accompanies the 300+ room hotels, then this is the place - early morning on the terrace with cuppa and book watching the sun rise in front of you was a particular pleasure
The apt itself had all that was promised and all we needed, the décor tasteful, and was clean and well-maintained; though we chose to eat out, the kitchen appeared to have all that was reqd to be self-catering. The small rechargeable router was more than sufficient to be able to graze on emails and internet, don't need more than that on holiday I believe. Our dealings with Victoria (owner) were a pleasure - detailed and prompt responses
This is not a beach-lovers paradise, there is no proper beach tho' a walk of 200 yards leads to a rocky area where one can sunbathe, and with ladders to allow entry to the sea - quite rough (so take care) and certainly bracing. Remember to take snorkel-gear as the presence of divers suggests the underwater world is worth a watch. There is also a communal swimming pool available
Activities - we walked the coastal path to Los Abrigos (5-6miles?), very enjoyable, not too taxing but a rocky path; also used public transport a lot - excellent service and cheap. Day out to Los Gigantes recommended (including a boat trip to see whales and dolphins), and a walk from Costa Adeje to Los Cristianos along the promenade (which confirmed for us the wisdom of our choice of apartment)
In terms of food and drink, there is a small café/bar Flicks less than 100 yds from the apartment - English run and all very friendly, though we only used (regularly) for snacks and drinks; also a small bar with snacks at the beach-area. Other than that it is a 10-15-min minimum stroll to any of the various areas where there are restaurants, with Las Galletas prob 30 mins away - but that suited us, pleasant early evening stroll to dinner (be aware of moderately steep slope from apt to main road) . 2 restaurants we would recommend - Le Grand Bleu (French Fusion) on the promenade in Las Galletas, and La Penca Tinta (real home made Italian cooking) in C.del Silencio
Overall we loved it - perfect
Fantastic location with stunning views of the bay and mountain.Good instructions on how to get there etc.Apartment itself is very comfortable and has some impressive furnishings.It had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.Pool area was quiet most days.We used the chillout bar regularly .Krystyan the new owner is very friendly and the prices are really cheap.We recommend Blueberry kick smoothies whilst looking acroo the bay.The only negative is the resort itself which has not much to offer but fortunately we went to relax and the apartment ensured we did.
I have nothing but good things to say about Victoria's apartment. It was spotless, beautifully decorated, and wonderfully appointed. It is in a quiet, peaceful location a few minutes walk from an incredible 'beach bar' and right beside a friendly, inexpensive little restaurant. No sandy beach but the pool is so clean and uncrowded and quiet you'll totally relax. It has everything you need for a great stay and is by far the nicest holiday apartment I have stayed in.
Just had 13 fabulous nights at this superb apartment. It was exactly as described and we enjoyed the close proximity to a quiet coastline and relatively quiet location. To cap it all, we had 13 fabulous days of hot weather!
If you are looking for the normal hustle and bustle of busier locations then this is not for you but if you want to simply relax away from the maddening crowd, it is ideal.
I for one will have no hesitation in returning to this apartment.
The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos. It's a very quiet location within walking distance of all local facilities. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a really nice apartment in a quiet scenic location. I must admit though that I was disappointed that there was no wifi in the apartment eventhough it was advertised as included. There is an Internet cafe close by but I expected it to be available in the apartment. However I didn't let it spoil my enjoyment of this wonderful apartment.
This apartment is even better than the online description. Wonderful location right next to the sea. Easy access to the pool where there are ample loungers to relax on. Supermarkets, bars and bus stop are within an easy 10-15 walk and Flicks Bar is just 30 metres to the left of the apartment.
Apartment is fitted out to a very high standard (much more than you would normally expect from a holiday home). Only small gripe was that wifi access wasn't actually available in the apartment itself.
Visited in November/December 2015 and will definitely come back again in the near future and have raved about the apartment to family and friends.
Amarilla Bay is situated on the sea-front in the quiet, friendly town of Costa Del Silencio. The area is very popular with the older generation of ex-pats and holiday-makers because it is smaller and more laid-back than the main resorts of Las Americas / Los Cristiano's but still has many small bars, shops supermarkets and restaurants within easy walking distance.
The nearest larger town is Las Galletas, which is a bustling, quaint, Spanish seaside resort. You can stroll there in half an hour, or be there in 5 minutes by car / taxi or bus.
