About MR GEORGE W. GOUGH

I have been paralysed for 26 years after being involved in a road traffic accident. I have a Labrador assistance dog you flies with us on our trips.

MR GEORGE W. GOUGH purchased this apartment in 2010

Why MR GEORGE W. GOUGH chose South Tenerife

bought as a holiday home for family. Tenerife has a very healthy climate and guaranteed warm, sunny weather all year round. I use a powerful electric wheelchair to get around Tenerife. My partner has extremely debilitating arthritis. The Canaries climate does wonders for her health.

What makes this apartment unique

Health, weather, escape from the U.K rat race. Live in a relaxed environment escaping phone calls, junk mail etc.

Los Gigantes is really an ex-pat colony. Everything needed is close at hand.

Great Xmas and New Year Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just perfect for us in every way. True to description. Clean apartment, comfortable bed, all appliances worked although internet very slow. There is a walk upwards to this complex but very worth it for the fantastic view from large balcony ( we are in our mid seventies and found it ok compared to the rest of Los Gigantes) We would certainly book again and recommend it to couples wanting a relaxing holiday. Did not try Gym but the Pool was great. The apartment was situated in a very nice area.

Thank you George for very good service.

Superb views

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was in a ideal location only 5-10 min walk to numerous bars and restaurants. Views from balcony are amazing. Waking up and watching the dolphins. Apartment was well equipped. Only thing I would suggest would be another fan but that is only a personal thing. George the owner was a pleasure to deal with andifferent answered any questions we had. Looking forward to booking again in the future.

A Gem of an apartment with breath-taking views.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described. The complex is in a quiet cul-de-sac not too far up the hill from the village. It is security gated and immaculately maintained with a lift to all floors. The apartment itself was bright, clean and spacious with plenty of storage space and well equipped. There was even a squeegee for the bathroom mirror!

The balcony was lovely, getting the sun from late morning until sunset, and the view was breath-taking. It was perfect for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

George was great to deal with and extremely helpful. We would definitely recommend this property and are hoping to book again in the near future.

Los Gigantes still has a Canarian feel to it and the locals were very friendly and helpful. We loved going down to the Marina to watch the boats and feed the numerous fish. Would recommend The Harbour Club for an evening meal. We had a takeaway meal from Pekin Garden which was very good, delivered free and came with a complimentary bottle of wine. Sangria bar was also a favourite for coffee and a snack.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at this apartment. The apartment is ideally situated - a short walk downhill to shops, bars and restaurants and also to the Marina. We found the apartment to be very clean and well equipped. The terrace is large and the views amazing – great for relaxing during the day and for having an evening meal watching the sun set over La Gomera. Communication with George, the owner, is good. All in all, highly recommended.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the apartment was to our liking!

Location could not be better and the view from the balcony is perfect!

The cleanliness and facilities are spot on.

Everything that is needed is within the apartment from plenty towels to a corkscrew!

The pool is wonderful and was never busy during our stay.

We would not hesitate to use this apartment on a return stay to Los Gigantes as communication with George the owner could not be better.

Fantastic apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is really well positioned and as stated by the owner the views and sunsets are out of this world. The picture of the pool does not due it justice as it was great for the two of us who swim every week. The apartment block is spotless and the staff are friendly (if you ever see them). We went out every night for our evening meal, prices really good. Alan & Cath.
