Balcon del Mar
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Bargain at £225 per week for such a quality place. Enjoy your al fresco dining and watch the dolphins swim past from the balcony as you watch the sun rise and shine continuously all day every day. It's a good sunny spot (all year round) on the southern most tip of Tenerife and just a few metres from the coastline. Balcon del Mar has easy access to all amenities, including the local supermarkets, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Take the kids to the world famous water park 'Siam Park' or 'Loro Parque' and have a great day.
The apartment comprises a bedroom with a double bed and ample storage facilities. Further sleeping facilities are provided within the lounge area on the bed settee (maximum persons: 4). Leading from the living room is a spacious balcony with stunning and unbeatable sea views, furnished with a table and chairs to enable you to dine al fresco. The apartment is well kitted out with american style kitchen, fridge, microwave, oven, television, CD player, DVD player and washing machine. There is even a shopping trolley - every need is catered for!
Ideal for couples just wanting to relax or families with small children (in a secure complex with security guards), with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay, why not take a trip up Mount Teide in the cable car and view the fantastic scenery (the highest mountain not just in the Canaries but the whole of Spain) or visit the capital Santa Cruz or the old port 'Puerto de la Cruz' and take the kids to Siam Park and/or Loro Parc? Alternatively relax and read your book, do the crossword or enjoy your favourite soaps on the English TV channels. You can visit the local fishing village of Las Gallettes and watch the beautiful sunset as you drink your glass of wine and enjoy your evening meal.
Beautiful golden sandy beaches, water sports, entertainment and amusement parks are available in the nearby main resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas which can be easily reached by a short cheap bus ride or taxi.
Ideally this will suit couples seeking a relaxing, therapeutic, get away from it all, holiday. In addition to the double bed in the bedroom there is also a double bed settee, maximum occupancy is therefore four people.
Due to the secure complex this is a very safe place to be with small children

The Canary Islands region
Costa del Silencio (literally the 'Coast of Silence') is located on the sunny sout coast of Tenerife, just a 15 minute drive from the Reina Sofia airport. The island offers all year round sunshine with a sub tropical climate with temperatures generally ranging from between 25 - 30 degrees between summer and winter. The resort nestles between the golfing haven of Amarilla Golf and the bustly resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas (about a 15 minute drive away). There is a small fishing village within a 15 minute walk, with a frontline row of bars and restaurants and an early morning fish market (lunch or dinner straight out of the sea!). Diving trips from here! Fantastic sunsets can be seen from here. There is also a small shopping centre with numerous coffee bars, shops and a park. Closer to are a number of restaurants and shops within a 5 to 10 minute walk. Or if you don't fancy that why not pop next door to 'Gavines' for a tasty ghoulash or fish dish?
Tenerife is often described as an Island of contrasts - as the south is hot and sunny and yet the north offers beautiful scenery, villages and places of interest to visit. Meaning the 'Coast of Silence', this quiet resort could be light years from its neighbour Playa de las Americas. Here, most days are spent lazing in the sunshine - ideal for winding down and perfecting your tan.
When you're feeling active, the village is filled with shops and welcoming restaurants serving international cuisine together with numerous music bars offering fun nights out. You'll also find tempting seafront cafes where you can watch the surfers from the rocks and close by, a small stony beach and rocky headlands ideal for sunbathing.
Costa del Silencio is one of the warmest resorts on the island because of its location. It is rain free for the majority of the year with the best weather in August. The temperature rarely falls below 20C in the winter and in the summer it is around 30C. This quiet resort could be light years from its neighbour Playa de las Americas.

Having stayed in the Silencio area on many many occasions over the last 20 or so years, I now know that we have finally found the best apartment!!! The view is absolutely amazing and the apartment is … More
Thank you so much for your positive review and very pleased you are planning on returning. Hopefully during your next stay you will see the dolphins off the balcony which we have seen many times. Although we've not been as lucky as my in-laws who have seen a whale twice! We relax out here several times a year and during these periods generally give the apartment what I consider a 'good old spring clean' which keeps it fresh for our guests, which is in addition to the obvious cleaning rounds following each departure. We also try to keep it looking nice by updating the soft furnishings on a fairly regular basis. Thanks again Denise

Hi Cinzia. Many thanks for the very positive response. So glad you had a lovely relaxing time. As you intimate it is away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts, but enough to do and see for an enjoyable stay with bars and restaurants within walking distance. We agree the views over the Atlantic ocean are amazing and simply in our view unbeatable. Hopefully next time round you will see the dolphins! Thanks again Denise & Steve

Many thanks for your positive review which is very much appreciated. Eating Al Fresco is also a favourite of ours and we often sit out glass of wine in hand, keeping an eye out for dolphins, which we have seen many times. Although the in-laws have the upper hand because they spotted a whale in the bay on one occasion!

"Wonderful spacious apartment with a Fantastic View"
What a brilliant apartment in a nice quiet location, a short drive away from the main tourist areas like Los Christianos and Play de Las Americas.
The views off the balcony are stunning, if you go out in the morning you can watch the sun rise from behind Gran Canaria, and watch small fishing boats go by while you catch the sun as the balcony was in the sun most of the day.
The Apartment its self was very roomy and very well looked after, and with all the appliances and cooking utensils you would need for a holiday, the bed was nice and comfy too.
The complex its self has a really nice pool area in the centre which is 1.45m deep at its deepest point, and includes a shallow pool for young children.
Overall the place is fantastic and just to prove how great it is we have already booked up 2 weeks next year!
Thanks for the review. The peaceful setting is very appealing if you like to relax and chill-out from the routine stresses of normal daily life away from the hustle and bustle of the busy resorts. Regards Denise

"Ideal tranquil setting"
We have had a wonderful stay. Apartment is light, bright and airy with views to die for, in a tranquil setting. Situated in close proximity to local shops, restaurants and bars (It`s worth going to Totem Restaurant for a lovely meal, good prices). Fantastic place if you`re looking for a little escape from hustle and bustle of the city.
Renting a car is a good idea if you want to do some exploring - Loro Park, Los Gigantes, El Teide are a must see!
We'll definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Many thanks for the positive review. We agree it's a lovely apartment with unrivalled views over the Atlantic Ocean. Many guests have also spotted dolphins from the balcony which is a fantastic sight to see. We holiday ourselves here four times a year and the area has had significant re-development in the past couple of years, making it a real pleasure for walking
