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.

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!

Fabulous!!!!

  • 5 of 5

A party of four friends, we stayed here for a week at the end if March and really cannot fault it. The villa is beautiful and extremely well appointed. It was very spacious and really nicely decorated to be honest it was probably too big for the four of us and would comfortably fit larger family groups. You have absolutely everything you need for a fantastic holiday. Highly recommended and we will probably be looking to book again next year. Thanks to Madeline, the owner, who provided us with all the information we needed before our trip. Fabulous holiday!

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was luxurious, the photos are so true. We spent a week here. All 4 bedroom have a wonderful ensuite shower room. The lounge and kitchen were spacious with lovely furnishings. The icing on the cake was the fabulous heated pool with surrounding patio area. The patio area had far reaching views of the sea and mount tied. This was a very relaxing week thank you Madeleine for letting us stay, we will be back.
