|Further details indoors|
Unlike a lot of apartments, not only does this one have lots of space to store away any items that you have travelled with, but also, it is has lots of room to move around in !
With whitewashed walls and tiled floors throughout, comfortable seating inside, and lots of sitting/lounging space outside, the apartment is such a nice place for a family holiday, meeting up with friends, a midweek break or a romantic getaway ! Either way, you will not be disappointed with your surroundings
After a long day of hot sunbathing or island sightseeing, there is nothing better than to sit on the west facing balcony, sipping on a glass of chilled white wine, watching the boats coming and going from the marina, listening to the ocean waves below, and seeing the sun set on the horizon alongside La Gomera, Tenerifes nearest island neighbour
|Further details outdoors|
There is a small communal pool at the property, which includes a shaded area for getting out of the sun, sunbeds for lying in the sun, an outside shower for cooling off, and the pool itself, which although unheated, is refreshingly cool.
With only 15 apartments in the community, even at the height of any season, you are more than likely to have the whole pool area to yourself, to take in the pool, the sun, and yes the spectacular views !
The road where the apartment is located has pine trees to either side, and is level for some time before going up in two gradients before arriving at the apartment; Easy to walk downhill, and a little more effort to walk back up, but then if you are feeling tired after a hot day on the beach, then a Taxi will charge approx 2 Euros to come from the Marina up to the apartment.
The Canary Islands region
Tenerife is the largest (2034sq km) and highest (3718m) of the Canary Islands, with Mount Teide being Spain’s highest mountain.
The weather in Tenerife is usually hot and sunny, ideal for those lazy days on the beach, relaxing and taking occasional cooling dips in the sea.
The Island has a great variety of micro-climates in a very small geographic area and provides great holidays for many different types of tourist, not just those looking for beaches but also others that enjoy hiking, walking, climbing, paragliding, cycling, photography or any other outdoor pursuit that benefits from the wonderful climate and landscape available across the Island.
- Los Gigantes is a quiet marina location on the South (Hot) Side of the Island
- The town has a small/clean beach which is quite safe to swim from; there is also a saltwater lido with a restaurant and 2 pools, where you can sunbathe/eat/drink etc.; this costs about 3-4 Euros a day
- From the marina you can catch a boat out to see the dolphins (which are there all year round); we can recommend a smaller boat which is much better than the larger cruises that also head out from Los Gigantes.
- You can also catch a boat which takes you out to a remote beach past the cliffs, and then returns later in the day to pick you up.
- In addition there is also a dive centre if you want to go/learn scuba diving.
- Fishing is also available from the marina wall if you fancy it - decent fishing rods cost about 10-15 Euro from the market
- If hill walking is your thing (or just taking in the sights of nature), there are lots of walks in the immediate area around Los Gigantes, so you can take either a guided tour, or just do your own thing
- There are tennis courts in the town which are open to the Public
- It goes without saying that there are quite a few restaurants available, with the majority being really good quality, and one particular one that we go to which is more for adults (as they believe in taking your time when eating).
- Los Gigantes is the ideal base, because its calm and relaxed, always good/hot weather (at least every time we have been there), and is great to go out on day trips from
- Outside of Los Gigantes, there’s Mount Teide the volcano, which you can go up to the top of in a cable car, plus there are loads of water parks, shopping centres, cart racing, scary mountain roads ect.
- Please Note - Los Gigantes is not a 'Party' place, so if you are looking for a lot of nightlife, then best to stay in Los Christianos or Las Americanos where you will better suited, otherwise Los Gigantes is the place for you !
- Wireless Internet Access is available in Los Gigantes itself, either by purchasing a dongle at the Vodaphone shop nearby, or by purchasing account access through Canaries Wireless - www.canarieswireless.com/en

We have been visiting this apartment over the last three years and every year it just seems to get better! Big spacious apartment with two big balconies overlooking Los Gigantes cliffs and harbour. Lift up to the third floor. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, huge lounge with wall to wall windows. Amazing!

"Spacious and well equipped"
We stayed here for three weeks in December. My sister stayed with us one week, and brother in law and wife another week.I chose this apartment because it looked like it had lots of space in the livin… More
Thanks for the Review; Yes at this time of year (December), the sun does hit the balconies later on in the day, as the apartment is west facing (out to sea), and the sun has to come up from behind it; if the weather is a bit dull anyway, this can delay its arrival :-)
Hopefully the spacious apartment and spectacular views more than compensated, and in any event guests can always walk down to the pool area, which gets the sun a lot earlier at this particular time of year.

"A wonderful experience"
We have recently returned from a trip to Vista Los Gigantes. Firstly I would like to say that the pictures of the apartment in no way do justice to the amount of space both indoors and outdoors or to the wonderful views. The apartment itself is vast with a beautiful well appointed living space, large bedrooms with comfortable beds, great bathrooms and an impeccable kitchen which contained every conceivable type of utensil to satisfy the most discerning cook. The terraces are incredible as are the views. From the outset the rental of the apartment went extremely smoothly and sincere thanks to Mark for his attention to detail including instructions on getting to the apartment from the airport and tips regarding the local shops, restaurants and local amenities. This was greatly appreciated. For those considering hiring a car we used Autoreisen (on Mark's recommendation) and we were very happy with the whole transaction. The cars are reasonably priced and the autoreisen staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending them. We had a wonderfully relaxed week at Vista Los Gigantes and would recommend a holiday there unreservedly. Thank you Mark and Carol.

"Fantastic apartment with stunning views"
Easy to book with plenty of information and advice before we travelled.
We travelled with our 2 kids, 9 and 14, and they both loved staying here.
The apartment was really spacious and was fully equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some!
We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the boats going in and out of the harbour, the perfect spot for all meals and relaxing in the evening.
It's a bit of a trek up the hill, but found a dip in the pool afterwards always helped to cool us off.
We had a hire car as it worked out not much more than paying for transfers for us all and we used it to visit the Loro Park and Siam water park and also to go up the volcano, all of which are highly recommended. For those wanting to climb to the top, remember that you need to have applied in advance for a permit for the final climb!
We used the supermarket in Playa Arena as recommended and were pleasantly surprised by the choice and quality of food and also how cheap it was.
We had a fantastic holiday and this was e perfect place to stay.
Thank you Mark and Carol.

Fabulous apartment with an amazing view from the balcony, we were lucky enough to see the whales basking in the bay. Roomy 3 bed apartment with all the home comforts, a well fitted kitchen with every utensil you need and very comfortable beds.
Yes the hill can be a bit of a trek but always got a taxi if we wanted one( 3 euros)
Los Gigantes has everything you want for a week away great bars and restaurants, a lido and a large selection of water activities in the harbour. Cheap regular bus travel to Las Americas approx 1 hour.
A great holiday.
Thanks Mark for making it so easy.
