Suzanne purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Suzanne chose Arona
Casa Maravilla is located in Chayofa, Tenerife's green oasis. You live here in a wonderful calm surrounding. Here you find tranquility with a lovely view of mountains and Atlantic, yet you are only a few minutes by car from the most beautiful beaches and the well-known attractions of the island. Siam-Park, Europe's biggest water park, the Jungle Park, Finca del Arte and it's splendid programme of culture, 6 golf courses, all nearby.
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Maravilla is a great spot for getting to know the island and for every kind of sport, including golf, mountain biking, riding, tennis, go-kart track, diving, wind surfing, kite surfing, sailing, angling, deep sea fishing, swimming, walking, climbing etc. The villa is very spacious. The furniture is new, modern and comfortable. In the tropical garden you have a hot tub, heated to 36 degrees. There is also a private, heated swimming-pool just for the owners of Chayofa Baja. It is 18 x 6m large and in an extra plot located, 50m from Casa Maravilla away. You get your private key to enter the pool-area.

Lovely Villa & Great Owner
The villa was so spacious & very clean we were so pleased with it , ideal for large families too. On arrival we were met by Susanne who is a lovely lady very welcoming, she gave us some cava, chocolates & water the day we arrived which I thought was a lovely touch you don’t get many owners that do that for you. Susanne even came to say goodbye to us when we were leaving. The village of Chayofa has a few good eateries one being a British run pub but if you want more touristy areas you would need a taxi or hire car. Would definitely recommend staying at this villa & will return at some point.
Fantastic villa, fabulous owners
The villa is very spacious, very clean and well maintained. It is at least as lovely as it looks in the pictures, probably more-so in fact. It is in the centre of a lovely hillside village. We tried two of the restaurants in the village and both were very good indeed - local food, nicely prepared and at sensible prices. The little supermarket in the village is a 5 min walk away and it stocks all basic things, open from 0900 - we also went to the much bigger hipomarket at Siam Mall, which is a 10 min drive away..... but beware rush hour in the evening when the traffic down there gets very congested! The garden has large plants and there is plenty of shade as an option to Sun when sitting outside. The villa has a car parking space for one small car - the street is quite narrow and car manouvering needs care. Suzanne is an exceptional host, incredibly helpful. We can not recommend this villa highly enough to anyone who wants a quiet vacation, close to Los Christianos while not in the town itself, in a spacious and nicely presented villa, dealing with the nicest villa owners we’ve ever met.
Great place to stay - quiet and still close to everything
We stayed here with our 2 year old daughter and had a great time. Very spacious and well-equipped house in a small village with a couple great restaurants within walking distance. Relaxing jacuzzi in the garden and access to a heated pool a couple of minutes walk away.
Chayofa is a lovely community and Suzanne's villa is the jewel in the Crown.
The villa itself is fantastic but what really made our stay exceptional was Suzanne for whom nothing was too much trouble.
Chayofa has a few bars and restaurants with La Finca our favorite for dining and Treehouses for drinks with very witty and friendly staff and customers. We chose not to hire a car as we could not agree on a designated driver but this did not stop us from exploring as the bus stop is only a short stroll away and by downloading the Titsa bus app you can track your bus real-time so no long waits for the bus . Alternatively a taxi to Los Cristianos was only €8. When booking our next trip to Tenerife we will certainly check the availability of the villa and book the flights accordingly. Once again a very large thank you to Suzanne and her daughter for being just brilliant.
When we arrived in Tenerife we were greeted by Suzanne (the owner) who from the minute we booked our holiday and right up until we left Tenerife was incredibly helpful, accommodating and just simply a genuinely lovely person. Nothing is too much trouble, she strives on ensuring your holiday is perfect and might I say, perfect it was!!
The villa is everything and more we imagined it to be! Extremely clean, comfy beds, nice showers and equipped with everything you could possibly need to use throughout your stay. The garden is beautiful, a lovely place to relax after a busy day!
We spent a lot of time at the communal pool, (don’t let the word communal put you off) it is only a very short walk from the villa & is extremely peaceful. However we liked it when it was a little bit busier, it was a lovely opportunity to chat to the locals & our daughter to make friends to play with.
The villa is what we would consider to be the perfect location. It is situated in a beautiful little village with a couple of eating places & a small supermarket, yet only a short taxi drive (costing roughly €7) to the town, beach and entertainment!
We will definitely be returning! 5* villa, 5*host! You will not be disappointed!
Lovely property unfortunately we had some problems
The house is absolutely beautiful, well equipped, well located for the communal pool, bars & restaurants. Only short drive to beaches and supermarkets, unfortunately on the day we arrived there were serious problems with the electrics which meant we couldn’t use air conditioning, kettle, hot tub, oven etc It was resolved late on the second night and had a partial refund but did spoil the start of the holiday, especially as the owners husband was very rude to us when he visited late at night on the day we arrived. The hot tub does not use chlorine so on the morning of the third day it was green and unusable, they did send a workman to change just half the water. We found some chlorine and used it ourselves to keep it clean! Suzanne is a lovely kind owner who was incredibly helpful before and during our stay, lovely cake & bottle of cava was lovely to arrive to 😊
Unfortunately we had an electical problem on the day of your arrival. We asked you kindly not to use all electrical appliances at the same time to avoid overcharging. You called us this evening four times ( last after 11 pm ) because the electricity was gone,again. Every time we came to the house all the airconditioning was used with open doors and windows, the hot tub was put on permanent duty with 40 degrees of water temperature and all the lights in the house were turned on. You told us that you have paid for this, and therefore you have the right to use all the electrical items at the same time. Otherwise we have to offer you a refund.
Thomas was not rude, he just offered you a complete refund if you would like to leave our house and stay at another holiday home.
Next day the electrical problem was solved by an electician and I paid you refund of 50 Euro for the reason that you could not use the aircondition and the bubbles of the hot tub at the same time, for one day.
Next day you called us and said that the water of the hot tub is dirty. Our business since many years in Tenerife is the sale and maintanance of hot tubs, so we know what we do. The hot tub is always filled with fresh water when guests arrive for hygienic reasons. The hot tub has a self cleaning system which uses oxygen. There is no chlorine used for healthy reasons. When the mechanic came to check the hot tub, he found food like chips and cookies swimming in the water. You cannot expect clean water in the hot tub if the children are eating inside the hot tub while using it. The mechanic did his job competently and professionally and of course I refused to pay another refund which you asked for because of the dirty water,
There is no chlorine used in our hot tubs and it would be very dangerous and unhealthy to use it without expertise.
Thomas and I are doing our best that our guests have a wonderful stay .
