about el medano: El Medano is known as the wind surfing and kite surfing capital of Tenerife and it holds the world championship wind surfing tournaments.
El Medano is an ideal place for sun worshippers as it is the home to the largest natural beaches in Tenerife. It has a 2 km of soft , dimpled sand that coasts up to Montana Roja. There are natural reserves- Montana Roja and Montana Pelada within striking distances. These volcanoes make for a dramatic backdrop of El Medano.
There are many paths nearby used for leisurely walks and biking.
Taxi to the villa.: Taxi to the villa from the airport should cost you no more than 15 euros.
There is a small supermarket in the nearby Arenas Del Mar hotel which is about 800 metres away from the villa and lots of big supermarkets and restaurants in the centre of El Medano.
If you are planning to take surfing equipments then we can give you permission to store them in the garage provided you will let us know in advance.
The host lives next to the property and he knows the island very well. He can help plan your holiday and rent a car if you wish
Nigel purchased this villa in 2005
This villa is perfect for your holiday
'Fantastic holiday, loved every minute, friendly people, nice surroundings, lovely peaceful location, great views'. The Villa was even better than i expected...i have already booked again for next year. Highly recommended'! - Mr John Banks (Visited: Jan 22nd - Feb 8 2004).
My husband,daugher and i stayed one week in this lovely Villa what is located about 10 minutes walking from the center of El Medano.From the moment we arrived we realised that we are going to be in a very special and relaxing experience.The proprietors Nigel and his girlfriend live in the appartment next to the villa and they were always pleased to help and answered all our guestions including advices about exursions,beaches,sports and restaurants.Villa was clean and had everything we could imagine including all kitchen appliances and a wonderfull wine and bisquits when we arrived.Villa was full of sun and light and had a great outlook on the Athlantic ocean.Pool was clean and there were always free sun loungers.You can spend your whole day there and not get bored.We will be very happy to repeat our vacations there.
We arrived at the villa quite late in the evening due to a delayed flight. Nigel was there to meet us and made us immediately feel welcome. He carried our luggage to the upstairs bedrooms. During our stay nothing was too much trouble, he gave us plenty of advice of who to see and where to go in the area and tips on restaurants. On leaving he helped us again with our luggage and saw us off in the taxi. All in all he made our stay in Tenerife most enjoyable.
Now we would like to make a few recommendations regarding the villa.
1. The twin bedroom - mattresses are pretty well worn and both need mattress protectors for the sake of hygiene.
2. The linen and pillows in both bedrooms, were to say the least, something in all our 27 years of going on holiday, never experienced before. It all needs replacing.
3. Towels - again we have never experienced towels like the ones we were given in the villa (white fluffy towels are usually the norm).
4. The bed cover on the double bed also needed laundering as it was badly stained.
Whilst none of the above spoilt our stay in Tenerife the price we paid for the, (as advertised beautiful villa), did not compare to any of the previous villas we have booked with Owners Direct.
Having made the above comments, this could be a beautiful villa, it's in a peaceful location, has sea views and is fairly near to restaurants and local buses. We loved Tenerife and as we have already said, Nigel could not have been a better host. The owner needs to invest to bring it up to a good standard.
Hemos pasado dos días en la villa y no repetiremos, Nigel el dueño ha sido muy amable y atento pero a pesar de que la casa tiene muchas posibilidades tiene mil deficiencias, la casa esta descuidada y con falta de limpieza, puertas y ventanas viejas y oxidadas, ,colchones incómodos, cortinas arrastrando por el suelo sucias, sitios en donde no hay ni cortinas, al lado del salón hay como una terraza que sería preciosa de estar arreglada y esta auténticamente en estado de abandono donde una tumbona que hay solo sirve para cama de 3 gatos que venían a dormir cada noche, las bañeras de los baños pequeñas y sucias, el sitio es apartado de cualquier zona recreativa o súper mercado por lo que necesitarás coche, la piscina en 3 días no vi a nadie, no se si era por la cantidad de suciedad, cacas de gato, bolsas, papeles etc o porque el agua estaba a la temperatura de un fiordo noruego,eso por no nombrar que cada 5 minutos está pasando un avión a ras de suelo y parece que lo tienes dentro de la casa debido a la mala insonorización y al llegar no se nos dijo que hubiera wifi, cuando al parecer hay, inaceptable que no hay wifi e inaceptable que habiendo no se informe y proporcione la clave y más al precio que pide por la estancia, la televisión pequeña y estropeada se ve con mucho color o de repente en blanco y negro, y el mando de la tele tuvimos que limpiarlo porque se quedaba pegado en la mano.
En resumen una casa con mil posibilidades y un dueño encantador y atento, pero vieja, sucia, descuidada, ruidosa a la que yo hasta que no hubiera reformas no volvería y aún así lo pensaría.
Nigel is een goede gastheer en we voelden ons welkom. Huis was prima, ruimte genoeg, 2 slaapkamers met eigen badkamer en mooi balkon aan zeezijde. Sommige dingen mochten wat onderhoud krijgen maar was niet echt storend. Er was ook wifi hoewel dit niet vermeld stond. Ook lekker een zwembad om af te koelen en te zonnen. Er stond alleen veel wind op het terras en geen windscherm. Dus moesten we eerder naar binnen dan we gewild hadden.
El Medano is a coastal resort in the sunny South of Tenerife. It has large flat white sandy beaches on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and is famous for wind-surfing. The town is a relaxed, multicultural town with bars, restaurants and shops. The local people are very friendly and helpful. El Medano is not exploited (no hooligans or street touts pestering all the time) as the bigger resorts (Las Americas or Los Cristianos). El Medano is located about 10 mins drive from the airport, and 20 mins from the busy resorts of Playa De Las Americas and Los Cristianos with easy access to all major roads, motorways and links to local attractions and beauty spots. Villa 6, Las Dunas is found on the main coast road, just passed the Hotel Arena del Mar. A few minutes walk from the villa is a small cove with its own sheltered beach. The surrounding area is mainly villas and in general a very peaceful place, yet only 5 mins drive from the main roads. It is highly recommended that you hire a car.
