Overview

About the property

Luxurious beach apartment in El Medano, Tenerife. Quiet location. Breathtaking ocean views. Modern amenities. Ideal for couples and friends.

Ocean View Apartment is our modern oceanfront/beach apartment in the picturesque town of El Medano (Spanish for ‘The Sand Dune’), on the southern part of the island of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands. The town boasts two of the largest natural beaches in Tenerife: the ‘Playa Grande’ and the ‘Playa Tejita’. Separating these beaches is ‘La Montana Roja’ (The Red Mountain), a volcanic cone. It’s a great place to relax and unwind – on the beach with a book, snorkeling in the main bay, having a cocktail al fresco, going for a hike, etc.

There is a large town square in front of the main beach (‘Playa Grande’), which holds many local ‘fiestas’ and spectacular public firework displays – with many pyrotechnics launched from the water of the main bay itself. The town square is dotted with many bars, cafés, and restaurants where you can have a coffee or eat Canarian tapas or seafood – washed down with some local wine or beer!

Our apartment is situated on Cabezo Beach – practically on the beach itself! This means a pleasant 10 minute walk on the seafront will get you to all local amenities but you can also enjoy a good night’s sleep – as you will not be disturbed by local festivals and events, which tend to be held regularly in the town centre during the summer months! Ocean View Apartment is about 10 minutes (8 kilometres) from ‘Aeropuerto Reina Sofia’ (Tenerife South Airport). Taxis and buses service the town from the airport itself. There are regular bus rides connecting the town to all major tourist destinations in the island – e.g. Santa Cruz, Las Americas, Los Cristianos, etc.

Ocean View Apartment is a two-bedroom modern oceanfront penthouse apartment surrounded by natural reserve. It has one double room – with a double bed and sliding doors opening onto our massive balcony/sunbathing terrace – and a twin room – containing two single beds. Both bedrooms are fitted with built-in wardrobes. The bathroom is spacious and features a big walk-in shower with a large shower head – for a relaxing experience after a day in the sun! – and a storing cupboard – for all your beauty products! The living-room area has a dining-room table with four chairs, a very large and comfy corner sofa, a flat-screen HD TV – including all your favourite UK subscription channels – a DVD player, a book-and-DVD library, and a reading corner – with an armchair. Our modern kitchen features a fridge freezer, an oven, a washing machine, a microwave oven, an induction cooktop, a juicer, a coffee maker, a toaster, and all kitchenware and cupboard essentials! Also in the kitchen, there is a closet containing an iron, an ironing board, and cleaning and laundry products. Our front balcony is so massive that we refer to it as our sunbathing terrace. It has outdoor furniture – including a dining table and chairs, sun loungers, and a clothes drying rack – and priceless breathtaking ocean views – from the Red Mountain to Pelada Mountain, the other volcanic cone in El Medano. On a clear day, you can even see Gran Canaria from your bed!

We treat all our guests to a welcome basket containing fruit, chocolates, a bottle of red wine, and other delicious bits.

For guests staying with us for longer than a week we offer cleaning and laundry services free of charge.

If you are renting a car, you can also use our secured indoor car parking space for free! It is in a private drive-in garage with remote controlled doors.

You can stream all your favourite shows using our super fast broadband connection (via Wi-Fi; exclusive to our Ocean View Apartment!)

The apartment is suitable for people with mobility issues as it can be accessed straight from the main gate or the garage via a lift. The building also features ramps.

After booking with us, we provide you with a ‘Welcome Pack’ containing directions, check-in instructions, personal favourites in El Medano, tourist attraction recommendations, etc. But, we are also happy to tailor your experience and make personal suggestions to your tastes and needs. Just ask!

About Victoria

My name is Victoria Pomar. I have lived in El Medano for over 30 years now. I live just 10 minutes from Ocean View Apartment. So, both my husband and I are always on call should you need anything at all. If we are not around, one of our adult children who live nearby can also assist you. I am an English teacher at the local school and cherish the opportunity to practice my English whenever I welcome guests to our apartment. I am always happy to make recommendation for your stay – so do not hesitate to ask! We purchased the apartment over 10 years ago because we had always loved the location, which is surrounded by a natural reserve. At the time, we had only seen the blueprints but we knew just how spectacular the penthouse apartment was going to be… those ocean views!

Victoria purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Victoria chose Granadilla

Ocean View Apartment is close to bars, cafés, and restaurants (2min walk) but not off the main square (10min walk) – like most apartments – which can be very noisy at times. Our apartment is pretty much on the beach too – and a very quiet one, not overcrowded (which the main beach tends to be). We furnished the place to the highest of standards – using modern fittings. The kitchen is also fully kitted and has every electrical appliance you could wish for. If you stay for longer than a week, we offer cleaning and laundry services free of charge. An indoor secured parking space and unlimited broadband connection (via Wi-Fi) are also free of charge. Enjoy the sun rising over the ocean from your bed! If you don’t fancy going to the beach, you can sunbathe from the massive balcony – which is also great to enjoy a meal al fresco!

What makes this apartment unique

The balcony is a suntrap and it is huge – with several sun loungers and uninterrupted panoramic views of the beach and ocean! Free of charge: welcome basket, secured indoor parking space, unlimited fast broadband, satellite TV (featuring all your favourite UK subscription channels), weekly cleaning and laundry service (if staying for more than 7 days). Ocean View Apartment is in a very quiet location!

Wonderful 3rd return visit

  • 5 of 5

Apartment just as wonderful as ever, it’s our 3rd visit which says it all. It has everything we wish for, just a great apartment in a perfect location. The Owner Victoria makes us very welcome and the property could not be any cleaner, many thanks to the cleaner Yaya. We enjoy it that much, we are back again in February for a month, and for a month next November. Thanks again Victoria and Trish.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We (partner and I) had a lovely week in the apartment. It was true to the photos online and spotlessly clean and well-maintained. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed for cooking. We found it very calm and quiet (no noise from neighbours) and perfect for a relaxing holiday. I really loved that we could sleep with the shutters open with the breeze blowing in and the sound of the sea - no mosquitoes!

Finding the apartment from the airport was quite easy. Victoria met us at the apartment. She was very kind and welcoming and made us feel at home.

We had a quiet week. We swam in the sea right opposite the apartment and did lots of sunbathing on the apartment's wonderful large balcony. It's a short walk to shops/town. We cooked a few meals in. Other evenings we walked into town and ate out. The scene in town was nice and chilled.

I would highly recommend it and I hope we will return some time!

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous stay at this apartment which has everything you need. We were met by Victoria shortly after arrival who showed us around and gave us information on local supermarkets. There was a bowl of fruit,chocolate and wine which was a nice touch.

Spent every morning on the balcony enjoying breakfast with a beautiful view. The town of el medano is about a 10 minutes walk away and has lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.

WATER SPORTS: Throughout the years, El Medano has hosted various windsurfing competitions and championships. This small town in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona, on the island of Tenerife is still considered one of the world’s best windsurfing/kitesurfing locations – boasting three different windsurfing spots: the Bay (flat/swell), the Harbour Wall (wavespot sideshore), and Cabezo Beach (wavespot onshore). For less experienced water sport aficionados, paddleboarding in the bay is also very popular these days!

COAST/BEACH: Our apartment is situated on Cabezo Beach – practically on the beach itself!

TRAVEL: El Medano is about 10 minutes (8 kilometres) from ‘Aeropuerto Reina Sofia’ (Tenerife South Airport). Taxis and buses service the town from the airport itself. There are regular bus rides connecting the town to all major tourist destinations in the island – e.g. Santa Cruz, Las Americas, Los Cristianos, etc.

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS: El Medano is a 43-minutes journey (62 kilometres) from the capital city, Santa Cruz, on the northeast side of the island. And, if you fancy popping to the white beaches of Los Cristianos or Las Americas, they are only about 20 minutes away (22 kilometres). Siam Park, the most spectacular water park in Europe can be reached in just 18 minutes via TF-1! You simply cannot visit Tenerife and not take a trip up to El Teide National Park (just 52 kilometres from the apartment). Named World Heritage Site in 2007, the National Park is the most famous landmark in the Canary Islands and there you can find El Teide, an active volcano (the highest mountain in Spain). Take a cable car to the top and enjoy the truly breathtaking views of the island of Tenerife and the other surrounding Canary Islands. We provide our guests with further recommendations after booking with us, as part of our Welcome Pack!
