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!

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

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).

Great location

  • 4 of 5

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.

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely property, extremely well presented and maintained situated in a quiet residential area.

  • 5 of 5

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.

What a fabulous place the "Chocolate Box" villa is

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Medano many times but this was our first stay at Las Rosas and it was an excellent choice. We stayed for 11 nights in June and had a wonderful time. The villa is spotlessly clean, has comfy beds and is equipped with everything you could ever want. It has a fabulous pool with jacuzzi - perfect for cooling off at the end of the day. There are also three sunny terraces so you get the sun all day long.

The villa is situated in a lovely peaceful area and is an easy walk, about 20 minutes, into Medano where there are a variety of excellent restaurants. Our favourite being La Familiar.

We had friends join us for 7 days and the villa was perfect with plenty room and facilities for all. We had booked a 5 star hotel for the last 3 nights of our holiday but after arriving at Las Rosas we regretted having prepaid our hotel as we would rather have stayed at the villa.

The owner Pauline met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. We will be back!

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.
