About The Owner

We live in Oxford, England with our two teenage sons. We moved back here after living for 5 years in Tenerife, where we renovated our property. We were only planning to go for 2 years!, but we loved the island so much, the fantastic climate, outdoor lifestyle, Spanish way of life and it was great for the kids who can now sail and surf.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Arona

We were looking for an exciting project to renovate and this ticked all the boxes. Even though it needed work it had the most amazing dramatic views all along the Southern coastline. It is over 200 years old , built from volcanic rock and was originally a chapel. The location was important for us too, we wanted to be in the countryside but close enough to the beaches and restaurants and the beautiful village of Arona is close by.

What makes this house unique

We love the peace, quiet and privacy that the villa offers us away from the tourist areas.

Lovely villa in a great location with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication in the lead up to our stay. We met the local housekeeper who we then followed up to the house, so that was very easy. Great to have someone show us where everything was, give us some recommendations etc And the welcome pack of food was a pleasant surprise.

Julie also provided useful info beforehand. So car hire was through Autoreisen which was cheaper than normal and easy to use. She also recommended Andy Tomkins who leads guided walks all over Tenerife and who we used twice (Masca Gorge, Anaga area) . Worth looking at his website.

The house was well equipped and to a high standard. The outside space was ideal with the different areas providing shade and seating. And good views too.

A useful location as quick to drive down to the coast ( Siam Park, beaches) but also easy to get up to Teide which should be a must for anyone!

You can buy your food supplies in Arona but we also enjoyed eating out; worth mentioning the Aroma Pastel cafe in Arona and the spit roast restaurant in San Lorenzo.

So overall, I'd definitely recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy Tenerife but who also wants a little peace and downtime away from the busy coastal resorts. You get the best of both worlds here!

Stunning property with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families staying in the property and it was not only very spacious for us but every room in the house was stylish with beautiful and interesting pieces of art around. Everywhere was immaculately clean. The garden too was equally interesting and the pool an added bonus. The 180 degree views were incredible and took in the towns below too. You ideally need a car if you stay at the property, although we did walk to Arona most mornings for a few provisions. Los Christianos and La Capella are not far to drive . The temperature is a few degrees less than down in the towns which can be very welcome on your return. The house too is cool and airy. I would recommend getting about the island in your car as very interesting. Mount Teide a must and Santa Cruz a great place to visit and shop.

Everything you need in a peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We wanted peace and quiet, and that's what we got! Very relaxing. The Finca is well equipped and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. Unfortunately, due to the cloud cover and the wind, it wasn't as hot and sunny as we had hoped so we didn't use the pool or sit outside much when we were there. We spent a lot of time exploring the island though, so were able to catch the sun in other places!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

I have to say the photos of this wonderful villa do not do it justice, it's lovely. We had a fantastic holiday and particularly enjoyed the pool. The drive to the villa is a little bit of a challenge but easy once you know where you are going. I can't recommend enough, hope to see you again soon.

Phenomenal Finca

  • 5 of 5

Six friends and I stayed at the Finca for 5 nights and loved every moment and feature. The views? Incredible. The finishing, fixtures and fittings are to a high standard. The overall experience from the owner Julie's recommendations, her friend Pauline who will meet you near the Finca in a easy to navigate to location and takes you the rest of the way and is always on hand to help, as is her husband with anything that may crop up. The area is beautiful, close enough to go to the main tourist areas like los cristianos and playa das americas for example but far enough away to get a rural authentic feel too. The pool is very handy on the hot days and the firepit is extremely good for a social! Loved every minute! James, London.

Wunderschönes Haus in Traumhafter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 4 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern 2 Wochen in diesem tollen Ferienhaus und waren absolut begeistert.

Die Beschreibung stimmt hundertprozentig! Die Lage ist traumhaft, oberhalb des Trubels der Ferienorte , absolut ruhig und doch nicht weit entfernt von Stränden und Attraktionen. Wir saßen oft nur einfach da und haben die Umgebung beobachtet. Der Pool ist gepflegt und lädt zum Toben ein. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Einziges Manko - wir haben es nicht geschafft, deutschsprachiges Fernsehprogramm zu empfangen 🤔dafür laden die großen Sofas zum Relaxen ein.

Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war sehr unkompliziert und angenehm. Auch der Tipps mit der Autovermietung war klasse. Danke auch hierfür.

Ein großes Danke schön an Pauline vor Ort. Trotz massiver unplanmäßiger Verspätung unsererseits hat sie auf uns gewartet und war sehr freundlich.

Alles in allem würden wir gerne irgendwann wiederkommen.

Car: necessary


It is a 15 minute drive to the nearest beaches in Los Christianos, Playa de las Americas, Playa Del Duque and pretty La Caleta fishing village and the Spanish village Las Galletas. Within 30 minutes you can reach El Medano, the kite surfing centre of the south.


Reina Sofia Sur Airport is 25 minutes drive.

Car hire is essential.


The peaceful village of Arona is close by. While a spectacular 15 minute drive takes you to the village of Vilaflor and the beginning of Teide National Park with its cable car up the volcano and many walks. There are also famous local walks directly from the property including Roque Del Conde, the highest mountain in the South. Local excellent restaurants are just a short drive away. Watersports and theme parks are also just a short drive away.
