About Bill Bailey

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!

Bill Bailey purchased this villa in 1995

Why Bill Bailey chose Arona

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.

What makes this villa unique

For guests arriving at night we can "meet and greet" at the airport if requested at no extra charge, lead them up to the house and introduce them to the facilities. We can organise walking, golfing, wind / kite surfing, cycling and motor cycling, paragliding, horse riding etc. An advance shopping list emailed to us by our guests will be supplied at cost. By previous arrangement with the owners, an evening meal can be provided for scheduled late flights if required. Cost on request.

The solar heated pool and sun lounging area, including 2 parasols and up to 6 sunbeds are in a secure area with lockable gates at both ends.

Quiet and comfortable finca

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at this charming finca. The approach is very steep, but we soon got used to manoeuvring our car up the hill. It was perfect for our needs. A quiet location away from the tourist hub. The finca is impeccably maintained, extremely well equipped and spotless. The satellite tv was a little inconsistent, but think this is a 'tenerife' problem. There is good wifi. The hot tub was much appreciated and kept at a constant hot temperature. We enjoyed a soak most evenings with a glass of wine! The owner's, Bill and Sarah Jane are very friendly and welcoming. They gave us lots of useful information and tips and sorted out any issues and queries immediately. It is a bonus they live next door and are always to hand if needed. There are good restaurants nearby, plus a few villages with everything one would want. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Tenerife, and found it an extremely interesting and varied island. We definitely could have stayed longer and am sure we will be back, if only for the lemon marmalade!

A lovely peaceful villa but close to everything

  • 5 of 5

A lovely two week family break over Christmas and the New Year. The villa was beautifully clean and well maintained. The welcome pack was generous and delicious. Bill and Sarah-Jane were wondeful hosts and we hope to be back soon. We're already missing the jacuzzi and pool!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing - extremely clean and very well equipped. We loved the pool and jacuzzi and it was great to be away from the crowds but within easy reach of beaches and attractions if we wanted to venture out. Great local restaurants. Sarah-Jane and Bill were extremely helpful and bought a fantastic selection of food for our arrival - we arrived quite late and were able to make a lovely meal with what they had left us. The outside area is wonderful and there are great views. If we go back to Tenerife we would definitely stay here. Thank you.

Amazing place and hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in La Casa Del Limonero with our two girls (8 and 10) for about a week. Even though we told him he didn't have to, Bill met us at the airport in the middle of the night just to make sure we would find the way as smoothly as possible. When we arrived, also Sarah-Jane was there to welcome us even though it was around 00:30 in the night. She told us that she had adjusted her starting pack for norwegians which was superb especially for our girls.

The villa is beautiful, and we used the jacuzzi almost every day. The girls also used the swimmingpool which held around 20 °C. The place is very quiet. Occationally you will hear dogs barking or cocks crowing, but it's never annoying - actually somehow it made us feel we were part of a Cohen brothers movie!

Final tip: Be sure to ask Bill and Sarah-Jane in for a drink and then ask them about their lives! Sit down and enjoy a roller-coaster of a story!
