4 bedroom villa with private pool in San Miguel de Abona, Tenerife
February 2020

This is a fantastic villa. It has four comfortable bedrooms, four bathrooms a well equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher. It also boasts a large comfortable living room/dining area with TV (all UK channels inc. SKY Sports). The villa has a lovely private pool area with plenty of sunbeds and seating. It is situated in a quiet residential area but is only a ten minute walk to a good choice of bars and restaurants and a well stocked supermarket. It is also a short walk to the golf Course. This was our fifth year in the villa and we appreciated the improvements made since our last visit. The new mattresses and washing machine were a bonus. All being well we will be back in 2021 for year six. Many thanks.

5 bedroom Arona villa to rent
February 2020

We had a great time at the villa all 8 of us . The pool was far bigger than it even looks on the photo and all rooms were clean spacious. The BBQ was very handy and we had 2 BBQ nights . The supermarket isn't that far away although the hill is steep. Ray is always on call to help if you need him although we only rang him to recommend a taxi. He was there on time both times to check in and out. Would stay here again

4 bedroom villa with private pool in San Miguel de Abona, Tenerife
February 2020

Our family of 6 adults and 2 grand children aged 8yrs and 6 yrs had a wonderful stay in Casa Carmela. The villa was spotlessly clean, very large and well equipped, the heated swimming pool was fantastic. There was a lovely garden and several dining areas around the grounds, very handy when it is windy. We appreciated the supply of towels for the pool and beach. It was around 10 minutes walk downhill to the shops but we arranged a shop and drop from San Blas supermarket to be delivered just after our arrival. Good places to eat locally, the View Restaurant was excellent with musical entertainment late evening. There appeared to be regular bus services around the resort, although we did not use them, maybe next time! We would highly recommend Casa Carmela , Larry was most helpful prior to our arrival answering any queries we had. We are seriously considering a return in Feb 2021.

4 bedroom villa with private pool in San Miguel de Abona, Tenerife
January 2020

Excellent property, quite area and well located for local activities. The property is spacious, well layed out and did not disappoint, plenty of places to relax, in or out of the sun. The swimming pool is a perfect temperature, even during our winter stay, cleaned and maintained regularly during the week. Thanks for a great holiday, definitely be returning in the future.

3 bedroom villa to rent in San Miguel de Abona, Tenerife
January 2020

Lovely villa with super layout and excellent facilities. The pictures tell the story. Decor wise the villa is a little dated but spotlessly clean, the open plan layout is great and each of the bedrooms have aircon. The ensuite bedroom is generously proportioned and the other 2 adequate with each having lots of storage. Both bathrooms are lovely. The sitting area is lovely and the kitchen/dining area also great. The wifi is excellent, fast with all areas in and out covered. The TV has all main UK channels (not European), the TV set has lots of HDMI slots so if you bring a streaming device you can get whatever you want. Externally the villa backs onto a golf course and is slightly vulnerable to offline shots but in 4 weeks we only had 3 balls in the pool. The 2 covered sitting areas are great with a constant pleasant breeze during our stay. The dining table picks up a fair bit of sun but can always be positioned with part shade. Only 2 slight issues to be aware of. Firstly, the villa rear faces ( I think) north-east and the sunbeds as positioned never face the sun, so these have to be repositioned in slightly odd places to get direct sun. Secondly, the pool is unheated and was too cold to use regularly during our stay in January. I would expect both of these would be much less of an issue later in the year when the sun is higher and the water warmer. The pool itself is great with a fairly constant depth of about chest height for an adult. It would have been good not to have to bring beach towels given many people using budget airlines want to travel light. A car is pretty essential, there are a few places within a short walk but the location is a little remote. The walk along the seafront to the marina area is comfortable and maybe 15 minutes, lots of facilities there. We had one member of our party in a wheelchair and it wasn't ideal for that, but never claimed to be. It would be fine for anyone with a limited ability to walk.

Travel guide

A quick overview of Tenerife

Tenerife boasts some of the most beautiful beaches and unique volcanic landscapes in the Canary Islands. As the largest of the Canaries, it offers everything you'd expect from a holiday, and even more, all year round. There are plenty of bars and restaurants for every taste and pocket; riveting zoos and thrilling water parks all over the island. In the summer months of July and August highs are typically just under 30 degrees Celsius. Even in winter you’re unlikely to get much more than 5 or 6 rainy days a month and temperatures rarely drop below 20 degrees Celsius.

How to get to Tenerife

The most popular resorts in Tenerife are in the southern part of the island which is served by Tenerife South airport. Flights from the UK to South Tenerife usually take between 4 and 5 hours. Tenerife North is also an international airport and flights from this airport connect the island to some Spanish cities and the rest of the Canary Islands, but most international flights go from and to the south airport. There is also a ferry line between Santa Cruz and Huelva.

Where to stay in Tenerife

Tenerife's western and eastern coasts are quiet and traditional. Peaceful towns and villages are fringed with dark sand and pebbly beaches. On the other hand, southern parts and the island's capital, Santa Cruz in the north east, are a bit livelier. The two main holiday resorts are in Tenerife South – lined along the Costa Adeje: Playa de las Americas is a lively tourist hot spot with plenty of bars and restaurants that stay open till the small hours while Los Cristianos is a little laid back, suitable for families and children. Puerto de la Cruz, on Tenerife’s northern coast, is also quiet and famous for its wide beaches. It is a proper working town and, unlike some of the island's purpose built resorts, has a more authentic feel. The Costa del Silencio separates the adjacent Golf del Sur resort from the vibrant resorts in the south. Well-kept golf courses, pebbly beaches and fine restaurants put this resort on the map.

Beaches in Tenerife

Beaches Fanabe, El Duque and La Tejita in Tenerife South are favourites with tourists, and rightly so given their size, amenities and accessibility. However, there are a few more on the island that are a bit out-of-the-way, but still gems. Playa de Martianez is a well-known beach, almost in the centre of Puerto de la Cruz. But just a short walk east is one of the most beautiful dark sand beaches in the world – El Bollullo. There is a 550 metres long walk – mostly steps – to reach its sands from the car park, but it's certainly worth it. You've probably heard of Playa de Las Teresitas and its wide stretch of sand in North Tenerife. But further to the north, another wonderful beach lies – Las Gaviotas beach. It's fourteen kilometres from Santa Cruz and walking there is not an option for most tourists, so it's often overlooked. What makes up for it is that dogs are allowed, the great beach bar with delicious Canarian snack foods, and the variety of water sports available.

Golf courses in Tenerife

Due to its pleasant average temperatures and varied landscapes, Tenerife is a superb destination for golf holidays. With Abama Golf, Golf Costa Adeje and Amarilla Golf, there is no doubt the south holds some excellent golf courses. However, the north does too. Buenavista Golf is an 18 hole course. It lies on the northwestern coast between the Atlantic and Teno mountains, bringing about spectacular views. Another top-notch golf course in Tenerife with great views is Real Club, in the northern part next to the airport. It is gradually elevated to 300m and it's the oldest golf course on the island.

Things to do in Tenerife

Apart from beaches, water parks, zoos and a variety of amenities available, Tenerife also takes great pride in its historical and natural heritage. Teide National Park is a World Heritage Site around Mount Teide - the highest peak in Spain and one of the highest volcanoes in Europe - definitely worth seeing. Covering around 2,000 km2 the island is relatively small, but due to its environmental conditions it is home to a great biological diversity. Hundreds of species of plants and animals live on the island, from Malpais de Rasca nature reserve in the south to Anaga Rural Park in the north. It's a true dreamland for hikers, climbers and mountain bikers. There is a blend of modern and historic architecture on the island – something for culture vultures to admire. The Auditorio de Tenerife in Santa Cruz is a feat of contemporary architecture, whilst the Church of the Conception of La Laguna in San Cristobal is a historic treasure.

Kids activities in Tenerife

Kids adore the beach, and with the choice of water sports in Tenerife, little scamps should be bubbling with happiness. If they grow tired of the beach, it's a good thing the island offers an abundance of activities. The water park Siam Park in Costa Adeje seems to be irresistible to children and, occasionally, to grown-ups as well. It's full of fun attractions, from relaxing rides down the Mai Thai River to adrenaline boosting water slides. Parque Maritimo in Santa Cruz has three salt water pools with gentle slopes making it perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. The animal adventure park Loro Park in Puerto de la Cruz offers excellent animal diversity and an encounter zone, and there are lots of places to eat and drink.

Getting around Tenerife

Tenerife public transport is reliable and inexpensive. On top of that, purchasing a prepaid BONO bus card can save you up to 50% compared to regular ticket prices and the card can be shared between people. Taxis are also reliable, and they're on every corner. Approximately, transfers from Tenerife South airport to Playa de las Americas or Los Cristianos resorts cost between 25 and 30 Euros. Night fares, which are between 22:00 and 06:00, are a bit pricier. Also, Tenerife motorway TF-5 encircles almost the entire island and car hire is always an option. But most resorts in Tenerife have amenities nearby, so unless you're planning day trips, there is really no need. Some of our owners and agents organise transport from the airport to the property and vice versa. It might be worth inquiring about transfer fares with your owner or agent at Clickstay.

Where to eat in Tenerife

The choice of restaurants on the island is broad, offering all kinds of dishes that suit every pocket, from posh restaurants to mall fast food spots. On one hand, kids love fast food and you can never go wrong with McDonald’s. There are also plenty of traditional Canarian fast food joints in every resort for a cheap and cheerful meal. They’re fresh, simple and delicious. On the other hand, there are also many upscale restaurants in Tenerife including Michelin-starred ones: glossy interiors, divine food and stiff-backed waiters gliding through the dining halls. However when it comes to tasty and traditional food, La Ola restaurant, way up north, takes the cake. Portions are plentiful, food amazing and prices affordable.

Nightlife in Tenerife

In a race to see which resort has the best nightlife, Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas win by a nose. They’re closely followed by Santa Cruz, and behind - breathless - in the distance, Puerto de la Cruz follows. Dance the night away to music by household names of the international electronic dance scene in clubs like Papagayo and Magic Lounge Club in Playa de las Americas. Sip a mojito in Los Cristiano’s Casablanca. Then again, if you’d rather chill out, try Paseo 24 Lonunge Cafe in El Medano. There are also a lot of clubs and bars with live acts on stage, cabarets, and even karaoke. So if you believe you’re a keen singer and don’t mind showing it, head to Route 66 bar in Puerto de Santiago and grab the mic.

Shopping in Tenerife

Tenerife is great for shopping. And whether you’re looking for fresh fruits and vegetables or expensive watches and mobile phones, Tenerife’s got you covered. Try Adeje or Arona markets for fresh produce. Fresh produce is also available in the Market of Our Lady of Africa in Santa Cruz. If you want to do some clothes shopping, try Centro Comercial Meridiano, also in Santa Cruz. It is home to the only Primark on the island. There are numerous malls in Tenerife, but since Siam mall opened, the rest has been somewhat cast aside. All the big brands are in the mall, and there are several decent places to eat here as well with great food, service and prices.
