Apartment in El Medano, Tenerife, Canary Islands. Quiet Location. New Luxury Apartment on the Beach. Ideal for Couples, Families and Friends.
Ocean View is our luxurious beach apartment in the lovely town of El Medano (Spanish for ‘The Sand Dune’), a town on the southern part of the island of Tenerife, Canary Islands. The town boasts the largest natural beaches of Tenerife, the Playa Grande and the Playa Tejita. Between the beaches is ‘La Montana Roja’ (The Red Mountain), a volcanic cone. It’s a great place to relax and wind down. There is a large town square in front of the main beach, which holds many local fiestas and spectacular public firework displays across the bay. Around this square are many bars and restaurants where you can take a coffee or eat Spanish tapas or seafood. El Medano is about 10 minutes from Tenerife South Airport and a 50 minute journey from the capital city, Santa Cruz, on the north of the island. And, if you fancy popping along to the white beaches of Los Cristianos or Las Americas, they are only half an hour away.

About the Owner
I have lived in El Medano for over 30 years now. I live just 5 minutes from the apartment. So, both my husband and I are always on call should you need anything at all. We purchased the apartment over 10 years ago – when we fell in love with the location. At the time, we had only seen the blueprints!
Guestbook comments from the owner
"We had a great stay. We really liked El Medano. The apartment was modern, bright and well kept. Nice furniture and lighting. We loved seeing the sunrise in the morning from the terrace. We were grateful for the complimentary basket... Lovely satsumas!" Brenda, Manchester, UK
“We had a very welcome, relaxing, and sunny January break at the Ocean View Apartment. Victoria, the owner, was extremely helpful meeting us and showing us around – even though it was the middle of the night! The views from the large and well equipped veranda are stunning – very picture postcard. Ocean View is a good name as it certainly is – with the beach and sea on your doorstep. The apartment is well placed and very good value for money. We enjoyed ourselves so much we hope to return.” Sylvie, Norwich, UK

Wonderful apartment - lovely holiday
Wonderful apartment, with everything you could need for a lovely holiday, including a welcome bottle of wine & fruit/chocolates. The sunny terrace is great for eating breakfast and sunbathing in privacy. We booked our transfers from the airport online before we left UK and all went smoothly. Veronica met us at the apartment and saw us off and she is so friendly and helpful - a truly lovely person. We wanted a relaxing week's holiday in a less touristy location and that's what we got! Great restaurants within walking distance - we ate out every night and had fantastic food in friendly, local places and we really enjoyed watching all the windsurfers and kitesurfers flying on the beach. Trish answered all our email queries very promptly before our trip. We highly recommend this apartment and area. Yes, we would definitely go there again in the future.
Victoria met us at the apartment who is lovely and showed us round the apartment and what we needed to do.
The apartment must have been the best that we have stayed in.
Seaview and as the other reviewers have said you can hear the waves when you are going to sleep. Its hot but breezy which I found to be brilliant because it was a lot easier to sleep at night (my husband had to close the shutters the first night because he was freezing).
The apartment is well equipped with everything you will need. Even a shopping trolley for food etc. There are tea towels, liquid for washing up, more than one toilet roll, a mat for when you get out of the shower, bin liners.
Victoria left a welcome pack of fruit, chocolates and wine which was appreciated.
The walk in shower is excellent. Sometimes when the showers are over the bath it can be quite scary if you are use to using showers at home and this one is brilliant. Lovely fluffy towels as well.
There was no sign of any insects, ants etc. It was spotlessly clean. The cleaner came at the exact time we had asked and was lovely.
When you come out of the apartment on the front you can go left to a supermarket by Arenas Del Mar which has the basics of what you will need. When we went there we called in at the beach bar for a couple of beers.
Turn right and walk up about five to ten minutes away is the town. There are plenty of supermarkets, lovely bars and the beach is so relaxing even when there are plenty of people on the beach.
It is not a touristy area with lucky lucky men every five minutes and it was completely relaxing and calming. I have a stressful job and my husband looks after the grandchildren so this was a needed break and we couldnt have asked for me.
Thank you Victoria. The apartment is a credit to you.
I hope a lot more families will have the benefit of this apartment. You will not be sorry.
Myself and husband have recently returned from a weeks holiday in this lovely beach front apartment. All ameneties you could ask for just like a home from home Great location and wonderful sea views. Unfortunately I had an ankle injury and was unable to explore as much as I would have liked so will definitely be returning.
well appointed flat in El Medano
I can thoroughly recommend this quiet, clean and spacious flat which looks out onto the sea and I was able to lie in bed and listen to the waves which was a delight. Although El Medano is noted for its wind, the large walled balcony protected us and we were able to enjoy the sun for most of the day.
The flat was cleaned every week by a friendly lady and we were able to contact the owner if we had any questions.
It's about an easy ten minute walk into town where there are plenty of shops restaurants and a language school.
Fantastic apartment in lovely resort
Modern apartment with everything you could need. Massive balcony with table, chairs, parasol and sun loungers, and amazing sea view and sound. Short 5-10 mins walk to the main El Medano beach and shops, but with plenty to see along the way. El Medano is a great place, busy enough but not as touristy as other resorts, -a wonderful escape! Would definitely stay again! Thanks Trish and Victoria x
From the Owner
“Ocean View Apartment is close to bars and restaurants (2 min walk) but not in the main square (10 min walk) – like most apartments – which can be very noisy at times. It is pretty much on the beach too – and a very quiet one, not overcrowded unlike the main beach. I furnished the place to the highest of standards. The kitchen is also fully kitted and has every electrical appliance you could wish for. If you stay for more than a week, we offer cleaning and laundry service free of charge. A free indoor secured parking space and free unlimited broadband connection (via WiFi) are also free of charge – with the rental of the apartment. Also, and perhaps more importantly, we will take care of you at all times – commencing with our free welcome tray!”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
El Medano has been the site for various windsurfing competitions and championships. Today it is still one of the world’s best windsurfing/kite surfing locations, with three different windsurfing spots, the Bay (flat/swell), the Harbour Wall (wave spot side shore) and Cabezo Beach (wave spot onshore). Our apartment is situated on Cabezo Beach.
The building is practically on the beach itself!
El Medano is about 10 minutes (4.7 miles) from the ‘Aeropuerto Reina Sofia’ (Tenerife South Airport).
El Medano is a 50 minute journey (34 miles) from the capital city, Santa Cruz, on the north of the island. And, if you fancy popping along to the white beaches of Los Cristianos or Las Americas, they are only half an hour away (14 miles).
You simply cannot visit Tenerife and not take a trip up to El Teide National Park (just 23 miles 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 breath-taking views of the island of Tenerife and the other surrounding Canary Islands.
