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, as it sleeps a maximum of 10 adults and a baby in a cot. 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 5 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! To discuss more about my villa and arrange a booking to avoid the fee you can call me but I have to put my number into sentences... first is 0, second is 7 then its 836, then you have to do 6 and then 0 and then another 0 and then its 28 and then a 9.

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.

Jewel in the crown

  • 5 of 5

World class...... all we had hoped for and more. From first booking our holiday, Mrs Rose was second to none, with information to any of our queries.On arrival it was a WOW factor immediately, very clean and spacious. We arrived late evening, and it was so welcoming even with provisions in the cupboards to make a cuppa or stronger. There is everything you could need, En suite rooms perfect as there were 8 of us in our party.The views are spectacular, and the heated pool with coloured flashing lights create a lovely ambience in the evening.We walked into town most mornings, getting a taxi back as it is on a slight hill, however taxi cost was only 4 euros even for 8 passengers! I would highly recommend this villa to everyone, no one would be disappointed. It truly is a jewel in a crown, wish we didn't have to leave. Will definitely be back in the future :) Thank you x

Fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week as an extended family of 8. First impressions of the villa were superb! A spacious, light and airy villa with excellent facilities. All rooms are tastefully decorated and air conditioning in bedrooms and sitting room (if you choose to purchase it) works very well. The kitchen was well stocked with every utensil imaginable as well as basic food stock...condiments etc. We also greatly appreciated having bread, milk, fruit and a few other items left for us as we didn't arrive till late.

The kids particularly loved the swimming pool, table tennis and pool table and the small utility cupboard was a treasure trove of kids toys, inflatables, hats etc.

The area itself is quite hilly but we still enjoyed strolling round the area. Lots of bars, restaurants and shops close by and even more further round the coast in puerto di Santiago and Los gigantes. We enjoyed the lovely walk round the coast but again hilly at times, Taxis however are easy enough to find and cheap. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Madelines gorgeous villa. Fantastic holiday!

Lovely Villa, Lovely Pool and Pleasant Location

  • 5 of 5

Upon touch down we were struck by what a pretty Island Tenerife is.

The villa was even more impressive than the photos, the layout is very comfortable with everything you could need. My son thought he had died and gone to heaven occupying the downstairs bedroom, which is very large and private. The pool was the perfect temperature and the awnings provided just the right amount of shade when the sun got too hot, also made it possible to dine alfresco.

A hilly walk to and from the beach and we tried some of the local restaurants along the beach and in the hills, reasonably priced and enjoyable, the Sangria was particularly nice.

We did the usual tourist destinations, Siam and Loro Parque, both excellent, El Teide (the volcano) worth a visit, the cable car was an experience. Also drove down to San Juan, a small fishing village (20 mins) to the Wednesday market and had a beer in a cafe on the front, very pleasant. Playa de las Americas was fun, lots of restaurants along the strip, very lively and the 20 somethings in the family especially enjoyed it. The younger members also did quad biking and snorkelling.

I would say even though Playa de las Arena is quite a quiet coastal village, there is something for everyone that's not too far away.

We definitely hope to return in the not too distant future.

A beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful spacious villa with everything you could ever hope for. Very well positioned with only a five minute walk to the sea front bars and restaurants. We would never hesitate to stay there again. A truly wonderful week for us and our grandchildren.

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

We have had an awesome holiday; we stayed with seven (parents and five children from 9 to 16) at the end of April. The house is really spacious and luxurious. Because of the great weather we have used the swimming pool a lot, and the temperature of the water was perfect. We had great contact with the owner, Madeline; she answered all our e-mails very quickly. We didn’t have any problems with the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, and we had all kind of comforts like Wi-Fi and a machine with ice cubes in it. The villa has a convenient location; it’s just a small walk to get to the beach and souvenir shops. The pool table and the swimming pool gave a lot of fun. The view is great from of the terrace. We went on beautiful trips to Masca and El Teide. All in all, we were really satisfied and had a wonderful week.

Wonderful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 2 small children and a baby) spent a fabulous week here at the end of March. Despite booking at very late notice (the day before travelling), Madeleine was exceptionally accommodating. She provided lots of useful information ahead of our stay and was very responsive to my emails. The villa was lovely, very clean and beautifully appointed with a light and spacious feel to it with all of the comforts necessary to ensure a home from home experience – WIFI, English Sky TV, plenty of soft fluffy towels, a fully stocked kitchen with every utensil and piece of crockery you could possibly require, a beautiful (large) baby cot, lots of pool toys, to name but a few. All four of the bedrooms are large, each with an en suite, twin beds and nice fresh décor. The heated pool was wonderful and sufficient to keep our children amused from breakfast until sundown! The photos of the terrace and villa barely do it justice. We also found the villa manager, Babs, to be really helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and when we had a question about the pool, she popped over within half an hour. The location of the villa is excellent. We have previously enjoyed holidays in Costa Adeje, but found the coastline to be much more rugged and mountain backdrop more attractive and interesting around this part of the island. Playa de la Arena is a nice little town, the beach is lovely but the sea was too rough for swimming on the day we visited. Los Gigantes and Puerto de Santiago are very close and great places for dinner. On Madeleine’s recommendation, we ate at La Pergola which we would highly recommend. The food, service and sunset views were all second to none. The villa is also close to Mount Teide which is a great day out. Thank you Madeleine, for letting us stay in your lovely home, we look forward to a return visit next year!

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 40 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.
