About Anna Gresty

This apartment is owned by my mother-in-law who spends a lot of her time in Tenerife with her husband. As she is out of the UK for a lot of the time I manage the bookings for her. We rent 2 apartments (C2221 and C2218). We are lucky enough to have a friend who looks after the apartments for us and he will welcome you on your arrival. We have a large number of regular visitors, some dating back for the previous owners, who my mother-in-law now sees more as friends than customers. We hope that all our guests are as happy and comfortable in the apartment as possible and welcome any feedback.

Anna Gresty purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Anna Gresty chose South Tenerife

My mother-in-law bought this apartment as a second home for herself but having remarried she now rents this out and stays in another apartment in Los Gigantes.

Nice well kept apartment

  • 3 of 5

When I looked at the apt description, it stated that it had a sea view, and there was also a photo of a sea view. From the balcony there was only a view of the giant rocks, which are fantastic, and a view of the court yard and the apts across, no sea view. So slightly disappointed with that. The apt was nice and clean, and decorated to a nice standard. What we found was most disappointing was there was no sun on the balcony. That is the main reason why we have winter holidays, to benefit from the sunshine and warmth that we don't get back in the UK. Gale met us on arrival at the end of the building, she was very pleasant and informative. When she was leaving, she said if there was anything else we wanted to know or any problems to get in touch, via her mobile phone. After unpacking and settling in, and reading the info and client reviews I text Gale to ask her how to use the safe. No reply. A couple of days into our stay, we had a problem with the toilet, it was constantly running. I phoned Gale, again, no reply. I phoned sometime later, no reply. Over the next few days I tried numerous times to contact her, without success. We started asking other residants and even at the Hotel if any one had seen her. No joy. about the 5 day, her Husband came knocking on the door (also very pleasant man), he fixed the toilet, he also helped us to use the safe. We then asked about parking if we hired a car. He replied that all the underground parking was taken, that it would have been a good idea to pre book a place. On our visit to the car park, there were barely any cars/vehicles in there, so was puzzled by his comment. The enterance and bedroom faced the back of the apt block, and faced another large rock with buildings above that. We managed to get about an hour of sunshine around 10am before the sun disappeared behind the buildings. On the ground level, is where the dustbins are kept, which they empty every night around 11 - 11.30pm. This used to disturb our sleep, as it is very noisy when refuse cleaners do their job. Los Gigantes is a really nice quiet place, but be warned, it is all uphill wherever you go. There is very little to do there, except use the bars and resturantes. We used to Hotel across the road to sunbathe one day and got stung 5 Euro each for the privilege. We decided to leave the apt 2 days early, as it hadn't been our best holiday. The apt was nice, but no sun. Gigantes, lovely little place, but very quiet and no flat walking ground.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad Gail and Steve were pleasant and the apartment was clean and to the standard you expect. I am unsure as to if you mixed up the adverts on owners direct but this apartment does not have a sea view and is not advertised as having a sea view. The balcony is overlooking the communal area and I am always clear that the balcony doesn't get much sun due to its location. The car park spaces are all privately owned so we can sometimes organise a parking space if pre-booked but can not take responsibility for people owning spaces and not using them as that is their right, sorry. If asked about parking in advance I will always try my best to rent a parking space for you. A lot of people like Los Gigantes as it is quiet and there is not much of a night life, if you want more by way of bars and restaurants then you need to go to a larger, busier resort. As Los Gigantes is on the side of the volcano it is very difficult to find flat walking and the hills can be hard work in the heat! I am sorry you did not enjoy your holiday as much as other guests.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely, well cared for apartment. Very clean and comfortable, well laid out and equipped. Kitchen facility very good and nice quiet location near to all local amenities and away from roads and noise. Would recommend to couples and small families alike. No complaints and we will be returning as it suited our needs perfectly.

We found the apartment very comfortable and spacious. We appreciated the fact that we were away from a noisy road, so there was a lovely, peaceful feel the the apartment. Gail and her husband were friendly and helpful. Thank you very much.

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Anna for making the booking process so easy. The apartment was well situated in the Marina complex and once in Los Gigantes was easily located. On arrival(which was late) we were delighted to find tea coffee milk etc and a well equipped kitchen.

The apartment was clean and well furnished and the visitors folder was full of useful information. There was everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday.
