"Lovely place to stay for a relaxing holiday"
We stayed here for 15 nights over new year into Jan. John and Dee picked us up from airport and made us feel really welcome. Dee showed us round bungalow. It has a compact kitchen with breakfast bar and a living area then a dining area with a huge window that over looks the back of the bungalow and surrounding area. One bedroom with twin beds and lots of storage space and a bathroom with a bath and shower, wc. Everything was very clean and tidy. We didn't eat much in bungalow. We ate out every night. La Finca is a fab restaurant opposite treehouse pub which you can see from the window in living room. We also ate and had a few drinks in the village above called La Camella. We got the bus most of the time. We bought a bono card which saved us money on the fares. There is a bus timetable and plenty of other useful info in bungalow. Dee and John were ideal hosts. We loved every minute if our holiday, and can't wait to return.

"An excellent holiday in every aspect."
My wife and I were met at the airport by John and Dee and driven to our bungalow in Chayofa, a journey of 15/20 minutes. The bungalow was spotlessly clean throughout and there was a welcome pack consisting of bottled water, tea and coffee etc.
John and Dee live opposite the bungalow and there for any advice or questions we had about the area, but never intrusive. Chayofa fulfilled our expectations and we had a great holiday. The private pool within the small 'complex' is exceptional. Always quiet, plenty of sunbeds at no cost and could not be faulted.
There are 3 restaurants/bars available in Chayofa all of which are inexpensive, friendly and presented to a high standard. We used the very reliable bus service, always on time, into Los Cristianos many times with the bus stop a couple of minutes from the bungalow.
The only downside we found was the lack of a shop in Chayofa. Unfortunately it closed its doors only a couple of weeks before our arrival; however, there is every likelihood that another shop is to be opened very soon. Regrettably, until then everything has to be obtained by travelling outside the village.

"Fantastic Low Cost Holiday"
We were met at the airport by John & Dee and we were made really welcome. Having booked the accommodation only 3 weeks prior to flying out, we were very surprised how lucky we were to get accommodation of the standard that greeted us on our arrival. Everywhere was very clean and tidy and the bedding and towels were changed after our first week. We used the fantastic bus service, with a bus stop a couple of minutes walk away and the regularity and punctuality of the service we could not fault it. We would recommend buying a Bono Card for the buses as you save quite a bit on the regular bus fare. The taxis are also very reliable and always spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed our 2 weeks in the bungalow and are already looking at booking it for 2014.

"Excellent week away"
Myself and my partner enjoyed a great week at this bungalow in Chayofa. When we arrived John and Dee had provided bottled water, milk, coffee and tea bags so we were able to relax straight away. The property is very clean and was well equipped. We were able to make breakfast each morning (a fully cooked breakfast is available at the country club which is 2 mins away for 5 euros) and sometimes made our own lunch too. There is a nearby shop for essentials. The apartment is in a quiet area which means u can enjoy lots of relaxation. However, you are still very close to Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas. The bus service is reliable and very cheap but you can also make use of the well run taxi service. The Tree House pub/restaurant is directly opposite the apartment. It is very welcoming (the staff are really friendly) and serves great food at lunch and in the evening. All sports events are shown here too. The swimming pool at the apartment was always really quiet. We had a great week at this apartment and are hoping to return later in the year.

We have recently returned from 10 days at this accomodation and having been to 2 different properties in Chayofa can say this is the best one we have been to. The welcome from Dee was warm and very informative. The accomodation was spotlessly clean on arrival - it was like home from home plus the weather was good, there was everything you could wish for. We liked the quiet location but near enough to other amenities if you wanted them. We hired a car but apparently some people use the local bus service.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this for a quiet relaxing holiday and will certainly be returning next year.

"Excellent holiday accomodation"
We staed at the bungalow Jan 05/29
One of the best holidays we have had in Tenerife. Lovely quite area were bungalow is.
Garden gets the sun most of the day, we could sit out and have a lovely read in the garden. And when we wanted to go out bus service was very good indeed, just a 5 min ride to the lovely resort of los cristianos. if you wanted to go further afield you only had to wait at the bus station for a few minuites (bono card recomended for bus traveling.
John & Dee were very accomodating if you wanted anything they were nearly always on hand for you. The both of us would certaily recomend the bungalow if you were staying in Chayofa. There is a supermarket just up the road, and a tennis club for the energetic
which we were not.there are also 3 very nice places to eat witin 2 mins of walking.
All in all we had a great holiday, thanks John & Dee.

I have been using this accommodation with my family for some 7 years now and have no hesitation in recommending it as an ideal location for a quiet, relaxing, “away from it all” type of holiday.
The bungalow is sited within a very attractive and peaceful residential area, with pleasant local restaurants and bars close at hand for those who do not wish to stray too far from base. However, access is easily available to the resorts of Los Cristianos and Las Americas via local buses, taxis, or car, for a wider choice of shops and nightlife – which is what we tend to do as a rule i.e. lounging around the pool during the daytime, taking a bus into town at night, with a return bus or taxi journey. As a religiously dedicated sunbather of almost professional standard (I kid you not!), one particularly gratifying aspect is the constant availability of sunbeds around the pool – and believe me, this is an absolutely critical requirement in my case! Its residential situation renders the need for the “dawn raid” requirement of the traditional package holiday to reserve your chosen hotspot completely redundant, and I can testify that not once in the last 7 years have we been unable to get sunbeds no matter what time of day we chose to make an appearance. Even at weekends, when you would expect the pool area to be busier with some of the residents off work, it has never once been a problem.
The bungalow is always spotlessly clean and tidy on arrival, equipped with all you could ever need in terms of household appliances and equipment: fridge, cooker, microwave, toaster, washing machine, tv, dvd player, and wi-fi access etc, and the Glovers are always pleasant, friendly, and helpful hosts. The fact that we have repeatedly returned year upon year says it all really – I feel spoilt to some degree and would not wish to return to the package holiday format at any time soon having had a taste of this
