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 South Tenerife

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.

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!

Wow. Absolutley Stunning Villa.

  • 5 of 5

The best villa we have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many villas over the years. It is set in a rural location which is very tranquil and relaxing and has stunning facilities thoughtfully provided by the owners Sarah-Jane & Bill. The villa was scrupulously clean and the welcome pack on arrival was exceptionally thoughtful and generous. There was a lovely vase of flowers and bowl of fresh fruit which was a lovely touch. The villa is fully loaded with appliances and is suitable for couples or families. The patio is large with BBQ and a large steaming hot tub Jacuzzi. The garden area is a real sun trap where the swimming pool is situated. These are all meticulously cleaned and serviced daily by Bill. These facilities were well used by us after soaking up the February sunshine or upon returning from a trip out exploring the island of Tenerife.

Sarah-Jane & Bill were exceptional hosts as they were genuine lovely people who respected your privacy but very knowledgeable if you need any recommendations of places to visit or restaurants in which to eat out.

We are hoping to make a return booking in the near future for another wonderful holiday at Casa del Lemonero.

Thank you Sarah-Jane & Bill for such generous hospitality and for sharing your beautiful home with us for our 10 day winter break.

We hope to come back to casa del limonero soon!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to rereat mind, body an soul! We never had such a warm and friendly welcome in a holiday-house. Bill and Sara Jane were so nice, humourous and helpful hosts! The villa is extremly well prepared for 6 persons and everything is on a high and clean status. The self-made lemonjam, the wine and sitting in the hot tub under the nightskies, were real highlights of our holiday. Also the nice little smalltalks with Sara Jane and Bill. Because of that we really felt at home and we loved coming back into the quietnes of casa del limonero after our journeys and trips all above the island. Hope it was not our last stay there!

Fantastic Holiday, Villa and Hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

The Chadwick’s 21-30 Nov 2016

Well what can we say… a fantastic holiday.

Villa is very clean and the best stocked villa we have ever stayed in and the best welcome pack we have ever received, and we’ve stay in a lot of Villa’s all over the world. Hot tub and BBQ area was great.

Bill and Sarah Jane like the villa were the best hosts we have had. Nothing is too much trouble we loved the home grown tomatoes and vegetables and not least the homemade lemon marmalade. A big thank you for the wine tour you organised it was the highlight of our stay. Will definitely be back again and would not stay anywhere else!

Second to none.

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!!
