“Wonderful Villa - perfect location” Having rented villas in previous years for our family of 7 adults & 5 children (ranging in age from 6 to 68) and preferring not to rent cars whilst on holiday, we found that most villas - despite saying car was not essential - were only near a handful of amenities, so wow what a great position this villa is in, a couple of minutes walk from a small supermarket within the exclusive Plaza del Duque shopping centre and only a little further to the beach and loads of restaurants and entertainment. Security wise it is brilliant as there is no access at the front and a private code operated gated road to the only entrance at the back.
As it was peak season & the temperature was in the mid to high 30's we did not stray far from the villa during the day, apart from a few trips to the beach. The pool was great (plenty of toys and inflatables) and sun loungers very comfortable, with 4 parasols and a shade over the outside dining table. Children and adults made much use of the table tennis table both in the heat of the day and evening, likewise our boys used the little football area despite the heat (6 footballs lost in total 4 at the front and 2 at the back) but well worth it for the fun!!
Accommodation wise - we were three families plus grandma & grandad and each family had plenty of space on each of the three floors, with the air con being very efficient (non in the lower floor lounge but not too bad) and it was in the lower floor bedroom.
Bathroom towels were waiting for us and there were a few pool towels but not as many as we thought there would be from previous reviews, so glad we took some of our own.
Kitchen was lovely with quality appliances and large fridge-freezer (small fridge also on bottom floor), so we could keep a supply of cold drinks ready to transfer into the main fridge. Lounge very comfortable and loved how it was straight out to the pool.
We ate out every night and a number of restaurants along Fanabe beach offered 3 course meals for just under 9 euros, and we were surprised by the choice & quality of them, we found Trip Adviser reviews were generally accurate. Being 12 of us we found that whilst the small nearby supermarket was fine for everyday items like bread, milk etc it was quite expensive (as is usual) and did not stock everything we needed. Mercadona supermarket is only about 4 euros in a taxi but we registered online before we went on holiday and put in 3 online orders during our 2 week stay and they will deliver for just over 7 euros, with prices much lower.
Walking from the Villa, within a couple of minutes you can turn right to Playa del Duque beach (small but really nice, though sunbeds expensive) and we were a bit concerned with the rough sea and current which knocked the children over. Go left and down the steps and it is a really pleasant walk with great views round to Fanabe beach. We preferred this as during the day the sea appeared safer and cafes for drinks & snacks were handy and in the evening the entertainment and restaurants were in this area.
After 2 weeks we were not ready to go home but unfortunately we had to. Although we did not see Valery, we did send a few e-mails about minor matters and he dealt with them promptly. He was also very obliging in allowing us a later check out time (use of lounge, kitchen and pool area for an extra couple of hours) as we had a late flight - although bear in mind this will not always be possible if the next people are checking in as soon as they are allowed, as cleaning has to be done. The information we received from him before the holiday regarding all aspects of the villa was clear and detailed and codes, keys etc were exactly as advised.
Thank you Valery for the use of your fantastic villa - we will be back.

Nice beach torviscas study, Costa Adeje
A great place to stay, reasonably priced
The apartment was reasonably priced, easy to find and well laid out.
There are a lot of steps (40) to get to it as it is near the top of the complex so would not be suitable for someone who was disabled.
It is very near the quiet top pool though. It is a quiet apartment.
Jose who owns it was extremely helpful and offered to help us find places etc.
It is close to the main supermarket.
The apartment was clean and had a great shower in the bathroom.
There were all basic needs catered for. It had a toaster kettle and coffee maker as well as a good hob.
It has a microwave and toasted sandwich maker.
We mainly ate out though apart from breakfast.
It is a short walk down the hill to the bars and restaurants and only a little further to the beach.
There were nice blinds to the windows so you were not woken early by the sun if you had a late night.
Great transport links right outside the complex with buses to Los Christianos and Playa des America's one way for 2.90.
The other side for La Caletta and Los Gigantes etc.
Apartment also has TV which gets some English channels including 2 movie channels if you fancy a night in on the sofa.
Nice fridge freezer too.
There is a nice pool bar on the complex with 6 more smaller pools.
We would stay again with no hesitation. …

Excellent apartment in super location
Wonderful apartment in an excellent location, within walking distance of the beach, marina, bars, restaurants, water park and other amenities. We had a wonderful stay in this superb apartment which had everything you could possibly need for your holiday. The apartment complex was great with several pools and sun loungers available to use and even a poolside bar that served cheap and cheerful food. There were numerous restaurants and cafes within walking distance or you could stay in and cook a meal in the superbly kitted out kitchen. There was even a handy washing machine. The double size balcony area with tables and chairs was a bonus. Thank you to the owners for thinking of everything to make your stay that more special. Would definitely recommend. …
Luxury Apartment Costa Adeje
We were very impressed with Annette's very lovely apartment. It is very clean, well equipped and has a great pool which we pretty much had to ourselves all week. With secure parking underneath and the best view of some of the many mountains. She is very helpful and has a visitors book with great tips. We hope to come back. Thank you! Xx …
Beautiful and Luxury El Duque
Just got back from 10 fun filled days in Tenerife with my partner and our two daughters (9&10). The apartment was spotlessly clean and modern, with three small balconies accessed from the front room and both bedrooms. There is also a larger terrace at the foot of the stairway leading to the apartment. The location is peaceful and quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas, in nice upmarket surroundings. Although it is possible to walk to a lot of the main areas, we hired a car so we could see this wonderful little island and were always able to park right outside the apartment. All in all, this property provides fantastic value and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and we would certainly consider staying again. The property management company were friendly and efficient and even allowed us to check out late on the last day (thanks guys). Highly recommended. …
Wonderful villa with excellent views.
Our stay at Villa Romantica was just what we needed, quiet, peaceful and great weather. Along with the spacious room's at the villa, each bedroom had plenty of wardrobe space and hangers which pleased the wife, each room was tastefully decorated and everything worked, the pool was heated but not the Jacuzzi but that was a welcome on some days when it got very hot.
would certainly recommend this villa to anyone else thinking of staying there.
Plenty of restaurants nearby which served a variety of good food and if you like fish there were a selection of restaurants nearby in the small harbour. …
