So amazing ..

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous location , property is more than adequate for or needs , positioned on the harbour with the waves providing constant viewing .. Who needs a TV .

We cooked most nights as local markets are great .. Great to give to the farmers and to enjoy fresh produce .

Beate is a great lady and very helpful .. Zoe her dog was very friendly

The beach is great and do hire a SUP board .. It's fun

We visited teide in our hire car .. Don't be put off going up on a cloudy day above those clouds the sky is blue also we visited garachico great natural pools and sweet village have lunch and some yummy ice cream

We have visited Tenerife many times and always done different things .. Dolphin and whales great but do the catamaran it's much more Duran Duran video RIO !!

I can go on and on but ultimately this review is about the house ... GO STAY but don't book it when we want Togo . Xx

Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

I can’t really add more than what has already been written in previous glowing reviews.

But I would like to mention the lovely Beate who looks after the house, she gave us a lovely welcome and was very helpful during our stay when we had a couple of problems (not with the house I must add)

I would definitely recommend this house and would love to go back in the future.

Lympstone, Devon

Ideal central location

  • 5 of 5

Stunning location with the sea outside the main living room and master bedroom. Quirky features throughout like the staircases and ladders to your own private mini beach (when the tide is out). Beautifully equipped with TV, DVD and Wifi, hairdryers and a fully equipped kitchen. Roof terrace, with exceptional views across to Montana Rojo and back across El Medano town, is equipped with comfy chairs and patio table.

The only drawback that I found was the second bedroom, which overlooks the main pedestrian thoroughfare, has a large streetlight immediately outside the window and this illuminates the room all night. The nice white curtains did nothing to block this out. Easily remedied by the fitting of a black out blind (please).

Great location for the town, water sports, markets and walking.

If you had a hire car, parking easily may be a bit of an issue as the casita is in a pedestrian street and no car parks nearby, so on street is the only possibility.

Not suitable for people with mobility issues, but ideal for the active types.

The apartment is situated at the centre of the cove. One of the best views, watching the kite, wind and paddle surfing on the right side of the very big balcony, and listening to the shrieks of delight from bathers as they jumped through the waves on the left. 5 minutes from the town square which is perfect for lazy lunches and afternoon coffee or drinks. The portion sizes and the food are perfect. Restaurant Familiar, (through either two of the lanes leading away from the main square), cannot be faulted, exceptional service, amazing food, great overall ambience. Make a reservation to guarantee a sitting.

We found the whole town of El Medano welcoming, friendly and so relaxing. During our stay March/April the temperature was at 29° most days however there is a wind which does make it seem cooler. We were 30 seconds from the beach which is ideal to go for a walk from end to end of the cove (the more motivated jogged) each day with a nature reserve near mount Roja. There is a food market on the Tuesday and a everything else market on Saturday held in the square. You are always two steps from the beach or cafes and restaurants with prices much the same as in England. We loved our stay, being able to relax and take our time in everything we did, was a delight. Great for families, for watersport fanatics, for couples, singles and groups of friends. We look forward to returning very soon.

Lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the beginning of December and it was perfect. Overlooking the sea with a fantastic balcony and roof terrace, ideal for soaking up the sun. The house has everything you would need for a holiday and was very clean and nicely laid out. The full length windows in the lounge and main bedroom give breathtaking views across the bay. The roof terrace is fully equipped with comfortable seating for those lazy evenings, and offers an ideal place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. The house gives easy access to the various bars and restaurants in El Medano and even though you are fairly close to the main square the noise level is very low, unless of course you count the noise of the tide coming in an out every day, which can be quite energetic sometimes! We will certainly be looking to stay here again soon.

Great place with an astonishing view

  • 5 of 5

As described in the brochure this unique house is worth spending your holiday in. Very recently it has been renovated with a new kitchen, new bathroom and complete new (modern) windows and doors overlooking the ocean. Very comfortable and in the middle of the center. Just close the door and enjoy the freedom, especially for me on the roof top. Step out of the door and you're in the middle of El Medano and in just one minute walk you're at the beach and on one of the best windsurf/kitesurf locations in the world. Most definitely a place I recommend!
