About the Owner

An active retired couple, Bill and Sarah-Jane came to Tenerife initially in 1994 when Bill was flying helicopters in the Canaries until 1999. We bought a ruined finca in 1995 and have spent 17 years renovating and improving it. When Bill retired from flying at the end of summer 2010, we sold our home in Somerset and moved permanently to Tenerife, where we live in our converted barn adjacent to the main house. Don't worry, we're completely separate and share only the parking area on the top terrace!

Another fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer holiday in a row at this wonderful villa and it felt like coming home. You want for nothing on arrival and throughout your stay - the villa is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and simply the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. The location allows you to have a really relaxing and peaceful holiday but when you want a change of pace Los Cristianos, Siam Park and Playa de las Americas are only 20 minutes away. Bill and Sarah-Jane are the perfect hosts and have become firm friends. Although they live next door they allow you complete privacy but are there as and when you need them - it's a perfect balance. We will return as soon as we can and we cannot recommend this Villa enough - it is fabulous so book it!!

We had the most amazing stay at this villa.

Yes, the hill up to it is steep, but we managed no bother (and we were essentially driving a small bus!). Drivers of smaller cars would definitely find this easier. If we were to go back as a 6 again, we would look to hire two smaller cars rather than one big one. But its not that bad, and its worth the climb up the hill for the views from the villa terraces. Beautiful.

The villa itself is stunning. All the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The terrace/jacuzzi and pool area are beautiful and meticulously kept by the owners. All bathrooms, kitchen, etc. were spotlessly clean. Before going, I was a bit concerned that the villa would be too hot at night, as there is no AC. This was never an issue, the air was well circulated with ceiling fans and getting to sleep was never a problem.

Every possible thing that we needed was provided, along with a wonderfully generous welcome pack which included lunch and breakfast items for the first day, beers, wine, water and juice. Bill and Sarah Jane have considered everything when putting together this villa. It was a true home from home (just in a much better location!).

The cats that visit the villa (Bertie and Pickle) were another highlight for us.

Most importantly, the owners Bill and Sarah Jane were just marvellous (along with their son Olly). While we were visiting, Sarah Jane was away, but she was great at keeping in touch and organising the booking. Bill and Olly looked after us while we were there, providing assistance with queries, giving us restaurant recommendations, keeping the outdoor areas perfect, and just generally being excellent hosts.

We will be visiting this villa again, as a group of friends, and in the future with family. We already have been recommending it to our family and friends.

An Amazing Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

A bit of a hair-raising trip up to the villa the first time on the winding roads (but we got used to it very quickly) and once you are there it is a beautiful, meticulously maintained property. Bill and Sara Jane were incredibly thoughtful and helpful. They truly are nice, nice people. We ate lemons from the lemon tree, relaxed in the hot tub, did a lot of ready and just hanging. The villa worked well for us as a base to explore the island. Just a great property run by really great folks. Highly recommend it.

Lovely family retreat

  • 5 of 5

A great return visit to Tenerife! Wonderful villa and location for a family with young children and Sarah-Jane & Bill are great hosts. The weather was warm, the jacuzzi used, the wifi appreciated, the toys played with, the dishwasher well used and the island well explored! Thanks again and hopefully we'll see you again in the near future. Sarah & family

A wonderfully situated and well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in the Canaries on and off for 35 years and this is the best villa ever. It is convenient for the airport, but has the most amazing situation in the hills above (and well away from) the coastal strip of South Tenerife with wonderful views out to sea and over the surrounding rural area.

It is beautifully decorated and maintained, excellently equipped, and well situated for local restaurants and shopping, as well as touring the island. We spent much more time just relaxing on the terrace or by the pool and cooking and eating in than we often do on holiday, just because it was all so pleasant and convenient. Bill and Sarah Jane, who live next door, were the most hospitable and helpful hosts and we really enjoyed the whole experience.

Our daughter and son in law, who joined us with their baby for a week, found that everything you might need for a baby was supplied, and they also enjoyed lazy days by and in the pool. (The older generation found the pool a little bracing, but that has been our experience throughout the Canaries in winter). However the hot tub, meticulously cared for by Bill, more than made up for it.

We may well have found our winter retreat and would certainly plan to return.

From the Owner

We bought the house because, with the prospect of living permanently in the south of the island (Bill was operating from the South Airport), we wanted to be away from the rapidly developing coastal area with its associated noise, bustle and traffic. We were spectacularly fortunate to find this property almost by accident at about 11 o'clock at night! The quiet rural location, the unspoiled views, yet the proximity to both the airport, main tourist areas and local (non tourist prices) shopping, restaurants and bars overcame our trepidation at the work that would be involved in turning it into a comfortable home. It has been well worth the considerable effort.
