This beautiful apartment is just 15 minutes from the airport, in the quiet and beautiful Costa del Silencio. Here we enjoy more sunny days than anywhere in the island, with a daytime-only slight breeze almost always present, making it less hot during the daytime but wonderfully warm at night. The beautiful complex is ideal for families and those who want a quiet base to explore the island and its many wonders (among them the Unesco Heritage city of La Laguna, the best and most visited zoo in Spain (Loro Parque) or the Biosphere Reserve of El Teide, Spanish highest mountain).
The apartment sleeps up to 6 adults (there is a double bedroom, a twin one and a sofa-bed). Baby cot is available upon request (no extra cost). It has one full bathroom and a toilet (1.5 bathrooms in total). The apartment is bright and spacious, fully equipped and well insulated (not too warm in the summer, not cold in winter since it is never cold in here). It also has a beautiful 215 sq feet terrace facing the south-west, where you can enjoy beautiful sunsets and have sun almost all day long. There are bars, restaurants and shops in the commercial centre at the complex. You will not see or hear it from your apartment though. The complex swimming pool is excellent and has a large solarium area.
You can also use the internet connection in the swimming pool, reception is quite good there also.
There is a TV and we can provide you with a VCR or DVD player if you need one. There is easy off road parking in front of the apartment (parking is not always easy in Tenerife). We have many extras that you might need at no extra cost. Not in vain we have been renting apartments for over 15 years already, so almost anything you might ask we have dealt with before.
If you stay for over a week, we include in the price a weekly cleaning of the apartment and linen+towels change.
If the apartment is not booked, we will let you stay until you need go to the airport. If you have a late flight, we will arrange it for you to leave your luggage. We are Spanish and are flexible enough for anything you might need.
A rock beach and a nude beach are nearby. For sand beaches you need to walk to the close Las Galletas or take the car to Los Cristianos/Las Americas or El Médano (both at about 15 minutes distance). Ask for advice on which are the best beaches on the island. We can also advice you on what to do, see, etc. and where to eat. Restaurants in Tenerife are extremely varied, so it’s easy to end up in bad ones. But also to have amazing meals and dinners if you follow our advices.
Full apartment at your disposal, you will not share it with anyone. Easy, free parking right by the apartment, and free access to the swimming pool of the complex.
Interaction with Guests
We are in the reception office (Mon-Fri, mornings). Anything you might need (extra pillows, info on restaurants, buying tickets...), just let us know!
Quiet area, with a nice mix of local residents and tourists. Away from the hectic and overpopulated areas, but with great access to the airport (just 15 min away) and a perfect spot to visit the island. There are no huge, ugly buildings in the area, rather small, low buildings and plenty of gardens.
Only 15 minutes to the airport, and a bus stop 2 minutes away.
Enjoy your vacation! Anything you need (extra pillows, info on restaurants, buying tickets...), come by the reception office (Mon-Fri, mornings) and let us know. We will be glad to help.
Remember to bring sun screen, even in winter. Sun is strong all year long.
And don't forget your camera! The islands have so many beautiful spots!
You can eat or relax outside all year long, any time! (nights are particularly great!)
I have to say that Antonio was a totally professional host. He always responded immediately to our enquiries before the trip and any questions we had once we were in the apartment. This was such a reassurance. I can't praise him enough.
The apartment itself is a perfect size for a family of four. It's very clean and has everything that you would need. Parking was always available right outside the front door. We had a cleaner visit twice during our stay which was brilliant. Also having a washing machine was amazing. We used it quite a bit and i'm sure has spoilt us for future trips where we won't have one. So thank you so much for having a washing machine in the apartment.
The only negative was that although it says it has air conditioning it only has ceiling fans, so it was very hot when we went in July.
The pool is nice and pretty empty of other people during the day. It was cleaned once during our stay, which was good, as it was starting to get a bit dirty with the odd bit of hair and bugs as well as paint from the side of the pool. My kids did somehow manage to cut their feet on the steps. I'm not sure how, but don't let that put you off using the pool.
I would say that it's a must to hire a car as we weren't that impressed with Costa Del Silencio. It doesn't really have a heart or centre to it and we struggled to find any restaurants that sold Spanish food (apart from Leo's). Most of them sell English and Belgium food.
We ended up going to Las Gallitas a few times which was much better. However we highly recommend going to El Modena which is about 20 mins away by car. It's full of local people and cool windsurfers just having a great time. There was a real atmosphere there, especially at the weekends and we ended up going quite a bit.
We are the kind of people who like to experience a different culture and love Spanish food, so seeing adverts for full English breakfasts and roast dinners really put us off. So if you like that you may love Costa Del Silencio. If not I highly recommend El Modena and also a few trips up to the north.
Oh also a great restaurant which is about a 10 minute drive, before you get on the motorways is El Cordero. It's not too far and we had a great meal and night there too, surrounded by local people and eating local food.
So thanks Antonio for having us stay and we hope anyone else staying has a great time there as well.
Хотела поблагодарить, Антонио, все было волшебно. квартира уютная и соответствовала цене, wifi сделали почти в тот же день. Магазины в пешей доступности, как и кафе. Если нужна свежая рыба, то это нужно ехать в mercadona, отличное кафе канарской кухни Mary и неплохие китайские рестораны недалеко от апартаментов. До пляжа далеко, около 3,5 км, но это отличный фитнесс, место не тусовочное, русских мало и молодых бритишей тоже)что было для нас плюсом.
In one word: excellent! Antonio was really quick to confirm the booking and with useful info and travelling tips on Tenerife. We had a great time exploring the island and had nice relaxing evenings (with our 2,5 year old) in the apartment. For our 2,5y old the bed was nicely made and put up for her to go to bed upon arriving after a 4h flight (and pre and post airport stuff).
The apartment block is quiet and has everything (restaurants, supermarket, swimming pool...) within a 2-5 minute walk if you don't fancy going away far for the day.
In some earlier review it says that WiFi is only available on the terrace and even than but Antonio happened to be there (he lives in Barcelona most of the time) and he installed a router/modem on the third day we were there. Top notch WiFi available from that day on which is a real plus with a toddler who likes youtube childrens channels before going to bed.
We didn't cook much in the apartment because the restaurants in the neighbourhood were pretty inexpensive and good.
The airport (south) and the famous Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas beaches/marine walks are only about 15-20 minutes driving from the apartment so it's a good base to explore the island.
In conclusion: Antonio (and Tenerife) won't let you down!
Bel appartement spacieux et calme. Nous avons bien profité de l'agréa ble terrasse et de la piscine. Facile d'accès, localisation pratique pour visiter l'île.
Olimme viikon verran Costa del Silenciossa huhtikuussa. Paikka on mukavan rauhallinen. Iso, oma parveke on päivällä erittäin hyvä auringonottopaikka. Asunto vastaa hyvin kuvia ja kuvausta. Muutaman metrin päässä asunnosta on useita ruokapaikkoja ja isohko kauppa. Auton sai parkkiin kerrostalon viereen. Saimme Antoniolta tietopaketin saaren nähtävyyksistä ja parhaista ravintoloista. Hän vastasi kysymyksiin nopeasti ja hänen kanssaan oli mukavaa asioida. Suosittelemme!
Everything was as promised. Except wifi...had to go out on the balcony to get reception...Nice an calm apartement building just 15 min to maior attractions and tourist center. Thanks!
We really enjoyed the apartment at Antonio's. The accomodation was spacy, with the lots of room and a nice terrace. Everything was matching the description. The surroundings were calm, which we liked. There is restaurants, bars and supermarket in walking distance.

About the Host, Antonio
A friendly Spaniard who loves meeting foreigners. I speak English, German, Spanish and Catalan, and I am willing to try in other languages... but cannot guarantee the outcome! Work for a family business. Among others, I hold a degree in Tourism, and I will be more than happy to give you advice on what to do, see, drink and eat in Barcelona and surroundings... people seem to like the places I send them to!
As a final note, I am also the proud founder of Ask a Spaniard. Take a look at it!
