About the property

Villa in Playa de la Arena, Tenerife, Canary Islands - 10 Mins Walk to seafront

Our beautifully light and airy villa is fantastic for large families or those travelling with friends. There is FREE WIFI for those that need to keep connected and a pool table located on the terrace, perfect for keeping everyone amused. The accommodation is approx 2300sq. ft and has an open plan living area that has multiple sliding doors that open out onto the south/west facing sunny terrace and heated pool. The contemporary feel is generated by the leather sofas in the sitting room with 42" plasma TV and the superb kitchen with integrated appliances. There are 4 double bedrooms, each with modern luxurious en-suite facilities so that everyone has privacy. There is UK Sky TV, Apple TV box and astra satellite with German/French/Austrian etc channels. Due to the elevated location it is a short downhill walk to the seafront and black sand beach and a slightly longer energetic walk on the way back!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to write and say that we had an excellent time at the villa, which exceeded our expectations of facilities & location and significantly contributed to making our first visit to Tenerife extremely enjoyable and memorable.



The location was spot-on for our party, having 2 pensioners, we found the local town to have just the right mix of local and British flavours in bars & restaurants and not overly swamped with mass tourism.



We would definitely recommend Villa 8 for future visits, especially if you want to experience Tenerife away from the ‘hubbub’ of the Southern resorts.

Sun, sea and sangria!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four weeks at the villa and it wasn't long enough. The property is modern, spacious, and comfortable. The outside area is particularly inviting with a fabulous heated pool and spectacular views of the cliffs at Los Gigantes.

Shops and restaurants are within walking distance, but be prepared for the steep climb back - pack sensible shoes!

Our favourite local restaurants were El Gourmet and Flor Del Drago. We also enjoyed great views and food at La Pergola, and unforgettable fine dining at El Rincon de Juan Carlos in Los Gigantes.

There's plenty to do within an hour's drive including a visit to Loro Parque and an exhilarating drive to Masca. The highlight of the trip for us was a drive through the National Park followed by a ride on the Mount Teide cable car.

Madeleine was helpful, friendly, and quick to respond to all my queries. The booking process could not have been simpler. Highly recommended!

Wow!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This villa definitely has the Wow! factor. The three couples in our party wanted a quiet, relaxing holiday and that is exactly what we had. The villa is spacious, inside and out and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. The rear terrace is huge and that's where the swimming pool, table tennis table, pool table and barbecue are situated. There's enough space that you don't get under each other's feet and can have all the privacy you need. We only ate out twice and because the weather was so glorious we made good use of the barbecue instead. The area is very hilly and the walk back from Playa de la Arena to the villa is steep in places but there is an excellent local taxi service that only cost about €3. Madeleine, the owner was friendly and very helpful in every respect. In fact, we all enjoyed the villa so much we have booked to come back in 2017.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous stay in the villa complete with pool, ping pong, pool table and BBQ - there's no reason to go out! Best villa I’ve ever stayed in - beautiful inside and out with all the mod cons including coffee maker, uk tv, ensuite bathrooms per room, and a dedicated wine/beer fridge. What more could you want? Uber relaxing when you lower the sun blinds for some well earned shade. Madeleine was super friendly and went out of her way to ensure we had all the right information. Our only regret was having to leave! There were items left over from previous tenants like a lilo, condiments and spices, which meant we didn’t have to re-buy everything. Great recycling in action! Playa De La Arena is only a few minutes stroll away and quite vs. Las Americas with local bars and a nice cafe overlooking the black sand and sea. Fun watching the rollers come in, supping a sangria and munching canarian potatoes dipped in mojo sauce. Yum! We hired a cabana in Siam Park for a day (well worth it!), went whale watching for an afternoon in Los Gigantes (excellent), drove to Puerto De La Cruz (tasty BBQ’d prawns from the bar on the harbour!). I went cycling up Teide for a few days and we all enjoyed jumping in the pool every hour on the hour.

I could not recommend this villa and location more.

Thank you Madeleine.

October 2016

  • 5 of 5

The villa was all we had hoped for and the weather was exceptional. The pool was fantastic, nice an warm and a good size. The pool lighting at night gave the outdoors a lovely glow and many a happy hour was spent enjoying a barbi and a drink by all four couples. We would all have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone it's suitable for four couples like us or a large family. Everything for an enjoyable stay has been covered by the owners and Barbara who looks after the villa was most helpful and only a short distance away should you have any problems. We really cannot recommend this villa enough and if like us you didn't want to drive while on holiday the local taxi service was very efficient and no journey too far and a 8 seat taxi was always available. If you are reading this I hope you take the advice and book this exceptional villa it will not disappoint.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is truly stunning, even though there were 7 of us, all adults, we all had our own space. We could not fault anything, the pool was lovely, the table tennis table and pool table were a god send keeping everyone entertained. The views are spectacular and the weather was amazing. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone as it really is something special.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The black sand beach at Playa La Arena is 7-10 minutes walk downhill. It is one of only 16 beaches on the island of Tenerife that has a prestigious 'Blue Flag' awarded for facilities and cleanliness. You will also find a plethora or bars, restaurants, supermarkets and shops. A short 10 minute drive to Los Gigantes with its magnificent cliff dominating the marina. There is a further wealth of bars, restaurants and shops in this well known village as well as another black sand beach tucked away.

The villa is 45 minutes driving distance from the airport at Reina Sofia. Even though local taxis are cheap for day to day use, we recommend that you hire a car at the airport which secures your transport to and from the villa.

Playa de la Arena is within 7-10 minutes walk to seafront or 2 minutes drive. Los Gigantes is approx 3 miles away (€5 taxi).

Further Details:

Mini market - 380 yards. Supermarket - 440 yards. Restaurants - 380 yards. La Arena Beach - 380 yards. Airport - 20 miles.
