On the grounds there is a beautiful cactus garden, two outdoor eating areas, BBQ, and a large sun terrace.

About pauline martinez trickey
My name is Pauline Martinez Trickey, born in Somerset, England, brought up in Scotland (where my family still live). After having spent 17 years in Geneva I moved to El Medano in 1998, a dream I'd had for about 15 years. 19 years on, here I am, extremely content on my island in the sun, in El Medano, receiving people from all over the world to our village, and very happy to do so.
pauline martinez trickey purchased this Villa in 1990
Why pauline martinez trickey chose Granadilla
With my mum, while walking one night in 1989, we fell upon a few houses scattered around near the beach at Pelada. One looked empty, so, being nosey by nature (it's a female thing), we looked through the windows when someone came up behind us asking if we were interested in buying. When we were allowed into the property both my mum and I fell instantly in love with it. In 2005 I added a top floor and swimming pool;
What makes this Villa unique
Absolute peace is what I like best about living in Las Rosas. The fact that there is a very private heated pool with jacuzzi, 40m2 sun terrace facing the ocean and with a lovely sandy beach just 3 minutes away helps too!

The villa is fantastic. Felt at home immediately. The villa has everything you need with plenty of
The balcony is a fantastic sun trap. Its the first time we have had a heated pool which was great for an early morning swim. The local supermarket at the Arenas hotel had most essentials and the hipo dino supermarket in el medano stocked everything else you might need. The walk into el medano was a definite 20-25 min walk, but as we enjoy walking this was no problem. Pauline was a great host and willing to help with anything. Thanks to Andreas for helping 2 tecnophobes with the Wi-Fi. Will certainly be coming back in 2019.
We were met by Pauline, who was fantastic, she showed us around and answered any questions we had.
The villa is situated in a quiet cul de sac with plenty of parking. You can see the sea from the upstairs bedroom balcony in all directions.
We immediately noticed that the villa is well laid out and clean.
There are two downstairs bedrooms and a large upstairs ensuite room with large balcony (inc. a safe for valuables).
There are 6 sunbeds and some chairs outside along with two parasols.
The heated pool is great for an early morning dip. The Jacuzzi jets were a big hit.
We loved the fact that the pool overflows – it certainly does keep pool clean.
Pool area is very private and pool is in full sun until about 4pm – but there are terraced area’s with sun until about 7pm.
El Medano is a lovely resort but quite breezy (hence great for windsurfers) and with some lovely beaches.
The huge advantage of this constant breeze is that it keeps you cool during the day and also keeps villa cool - the nights were comfortable for sleeping.
There is a small supermarket about 10 mins walk down the road – El Medano centre is about 20-30 mins walk.
We had a lovely holiday and really enjoyed our stay here.
Thanks Pauline for a great stay in a lovely villa (and thanks for the beers).
Good afternoon Mike and family
I´m so happy you enjoyed your stay in our "Chocolate box" and look forward to your next visit.
Have a wonderful weekend
Nice compact villa, spotlessly clean & welcoming. Met by Pauline who could not have been more helpful. Walked into town every day, ( blown in sometimes!) found some lovely tapas & seafood restaurants. We did not hire a car, got a taxi from airport, walked everywhere & used the supermarket by the hotel Arenas which was very well stocked.
We both had a brilliant time staying at Pauline's Chocolate Box Villa. Pauline was extremely welcoming and helpful. The villa had everything you could possibly need for a totally relaxing holiday. Clean and comfortable. The master bedroom is fantastic with the beautiful terrace looking out to sea. Sun all day and a beautiful breeze. Would highly recommend this villa. Many thanks Pauline.
Many thanks to you Jacqueline for such a wonderful review :))))))
Lovely property, extremely well presented and maintained situated in a quiet residential area.
Our host Pauline has maintained the property at a very high level. We wanted for nothing. Between the pool, the front yard and the roof top terrace we had so many options. Pauline was extremely helpful and friendly while totally professional.
I am humbled by your kind words Gerard, thank you
Have a safe journey home
What a fabulous place the "Chocolate Box" villa is
Wow what a treat..we were met at the villa by Pauline who could not have been more charming, warm and welcoming. The villa is just perfect and has all we required. Clean comfortable, well equipped and well situated. The pool was great and the Jacuzzi bit an added bonus.Everything to make a holiday good was provided ie..substantial amount of towels, water , tea, coffee, and loo rolls ready to get us started. The area is just charming with great restaurants, shopping, beaches all nearby. Our only negative was extreme winds for a few days which stopped us from getting on the beach...however this was not in anyone's control..but I do think if Pauline could have sorted it she would have! We would thoroughly recommend this charming property. El Medano is a great place...please don't go there we want to keep it all to ourselves!!!! It is a great Tenerifian/Spanish area with a friendly and inviting atmosphere.Great restaurants and so convenient for supermarkets, access to the motorway and Airport..Just Fabulous. Thank you Pauline.
Your review makes for happy reading, thank you.
Only 3 minutes walk from Las Rosas we have the beach at the foot of Montaña Pelada. Little known to tourists this beach is used mainly by locals.
The southern airport, Reina Sofia, is situated 4.5km from El Medano. If you would like to visit the island a car is recommended.
In the village of El Medano there is the longest natural sandy beach of the island with Tejita beach just behind Montana Roja, a landmark protected by Unesco.
