About the property

Studio Apartment in Los Cristianos, Tenerife, Canary Islands - Central Location, Level Access, No Car Required

This peaceful rooftop studio (5th floor with a lift) is perfectly placed for those wanting to enjoy the best that the pretty fishing town of Los Cristianos has to offer without the hassle of renting a car or having to walk far. You can see the main beach of Los Cristianos from the doorway. It is a blue flag beach. The port, with all its water sport facilities, fresh fish stands, weekly local produce markets, cultural events, boat trips and ferries to neighbouring islands, is just around the corner. And the town's other beach, Playa las Vistas, is just two blocks away. It is also a Blue Flag beach. Some of the best bars, restaurants and shops are on the very doorstep, but no loud, late nightlife. It is a surprisingly quiet little oasis in the centre of town.

What makes this apartment unique

This lovely, air conditioned penthouse studio is right by the beach and all the best restaurants and amenities in Los Cristianos. We walk everywhere. Level access, pedestrianised. No walking up the hill in Los Cristianos to get back to your flat for lunch or supper! It's so convenient, we often nip down for a quick swim before breakfast or at dusk. Our lovely housekeeper keeps it immaculate, and our handyman regularly paints and refurbishes it, to ensure it's just right for your holiday. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

"Just a quick email to say thanks for letting us stay at your appartment! Great location - who needs a balcony when you have the whole beach?! Thanks!" Julie Redmond

"The apartment was perfect! Just what we needed and a great location too. Thank you so much Sharon!" Charlie and Olivia Hodges

"It's been an absolutely amazing holiday. The accommodation is brilliant and it has all the amenities you could want in a holiday home. The location is superb - right in the centre of everything, and so very close to the beach. We can't praise Sharon's holiday home enough and we will definitely be returning!"

Brilliant little penthouse

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Perfect walking distance to the beach and is supplied with everything you'll need for your holiday! Sharon including the essentials for when you arrive added that extra personal touch and we really appreciated her going the extra mile to do this as we haven't visited Los Cristianos prior to our visit therefore we did not know where supermarkets etc were..so thank you Sharon!

The maintance staff were also superb when our washing got stuck in the washing machine..they even washed our clothes for us while we was out after they fixed the washing machine which was a real help!

Could not fault the appartment and it added that little bit extra to mine and my partners first holiday abroad together!

Will definitely be visiting again this year :)

2017 Holiday

  • 4 of 5

A great location about 20 yards from the beach, and the apartment was clean and well maintained. Remote control batteries and a dodgy kitchen chair were replaced immediately by the excellent maintenance team.

Fantastic choice of restaurants within easy and flat walking distance. The Cottage was our favourite but lots of choice.

We did miss having a balcony but mostly compensated by the close proximity of the beach.

All in all a really good experience.

Well equipped apt.

  • 3 of 5

Good location and the apt was well equipped.On the down side we didn't get much sleep mainly due to the dustbins being emptied about 3a.m.and the awful hooting of pidgeons.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Great little apartment for couples or a small family. Ideal location, everything within walking distance. We made full use of the apartment including the funky washing machine (which was ideal, no dirty laundry hanging about). The welcome pack was VERY welcome. The air con was a god send as it is a warm apartment so it was very much needed. The towels and bedding were changed weekly by a lovely couple who also cleaned the apartment once a week.It is a residential area but there is limited noise, and most of the bars shut at around 11pm. We particularly enjoyed having a chilled nightcap in the beach bar which is 100 metres away from the apartment. We also found a lovely little taverner called The Hideaway Pub which were very cheap and the Tapas was delicious. The beaches are lovely and the beds are cheap. We will most definitely stay here again. Thank you Sharon. We had a fabulous 2 weeks 😊򒠽򒨊

Property is near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was ok, the location is close to the Los Cristianos beach and only 5 min from Playa de Las Vistas!

Juan, the man who waited for us at the airport is very kind and funny. He preffered to take us with his personal car instead of letting us to take the bus with no money and we really appreciated this.

We didn't encountered any issues during our stay in Tenerife. You can find many restaurants near this location with cheap and good food (dinner with 6-10 eur/pers).

Our recommendations for next guests are:

- Don't miss a trip in La Gomera island;

- Best Breakfast in Los Cristianos - Players Lounge, located on the Playa de Las Vistas;

- Best Gin (G Vine Gin Floraison with 1734 water tonic) and Mojito (with mango) - Papagayo Club, located on the Playa de Las Americas;

- Play Mini Golf in Los Cristianos;

- Visit Loro Parque and Siam Park.

Also I would like to add that the property has air conditioner.

Thanks Sarah for everything and we will for sure come back here!!!

The famous Las Vistas beach is just up the road (50 metres from flat) and a sandy beach is at the Port (20 metres). Both are have a Blue Flag. No stairs or hills - level access. Sandy beaches snake along the coastline from Las Vistas, easily accessible by walking along the beautiful purpose-built beachfront walkway that links Los Cristianos to Playa de las Americas. Walking along here as the sun hits the ocean is a delight and there are plenty of oceanfront bars and restaurants along the way.


The flat is a 15-minute taxi ride or drive from the Tenerife South Airport. Taxi will cost around 22 euros. Or you can take the bus, which takes 20 minutes and costs around 2 euros. Car hire is not necessary as you can walk everywhere here. There is a taxi rank on the corner if required. Most big attractions organise a free bus service which departs near the flat too.


Europe's largest water park, Siam Park, is a ten minute taxi ride away, or there is a free bus service a 5 minute walk from the flat. Jungle Park, with its impressive setting and bird of prey show, is 15 minutes away by taxi, or there is a free bus service for that too. There is also a free bus service to Tenerife Pearl, a large pearl jewellery outlet, perfect for present shopping.

Further Details:

The flat has a range of some of the best bars and restaurants on the doorstep, from local delicacies to international cuisine. The best gift shop in town, Cosas, is perfect for eclectic, quality gifts and there are top sports shops and fashion boutiques to hand. All key services, like banks, cashpoints, chemists and supermarkets are also closeby. My favourite though, is the town's best French patisserie, round the corner - the best almond croissants you'll find this side of Paris!
