“This apartment is advertised as a luxury 1 bed apartment, however, this is very misleading. There are no luxury items and it is not spacious. There is no dishwasher, no air-conditioning and the ceiling fans are inadequate to keep the place cool. The balcony was very cluttered and neglected and is nothing like the pictures shown. It is at the top of a very steep hill which is not mentioned and there are three lifts to negotiate before you can reach the apartment. It is stated that it is a 10 minute walk to Los Cristianos town when in fact it is more like 25 minutes. As it is a residential complex it lacks a holiday atmosphere and the corridor leading to the apartment is dark and dingy during the day. This was a holiday swap for us and we were not comfortable and felt very let down. ----------------------------- HOST'S RESPONSE ------------------------------------ * A disappointing and unjustified review, the first negative feedback in 18 years. This was a classic swap and communication with Bill was poor from the outset, he didn't want to discuss our apartment therefore he has unrealistic expectations. Very detailed information including location and the lifts was sent when the booking was agreed which just days before departure he advised that he had been too busy to read. * It is described as a residential complex, not a holiday complex and no mention of having a dish washer or aircon, neither are the norm in Tenerife vacation apartments. * The apartment is larger than most one bed apartments in South Tenerife, the balcony being 34 sq mtrs * The seafront promenade can be reached in 10 to 12 minutes, its longer to the town centre. * The balcony is exactly as pictured and not neglected. Following the many calima storms during the summer the sunbeds are marked but not dirty and these are due for replacement as soon as the supply is available.”

Lynne's reviewsAs a host (7)
“We visited Lynne's apartment in 2019 and 2020 even, both period was great. Lynne is a great host, fast responder and very flexible. We are so glad, that we could spend 2 weeks in total in their beautiful flat. The apartment has a great location, view, huge balcony and it is very well equipped, renovated and clean. Home away from home, hopefully we can return next year too. Strongly recommended apartment and host in Tenerife!”
“This very comfortable property is in a lovely quiet location with the most stunning views of both sea and mountain. We had another perfect week with good weather and would reccomend this apartment to anyone looking for a well equipped comfortable home from home .”
“My Wife and I had never been to the Canaries before but wanted some winter sunshine, so settled on Teneriffe and Los Christianos, and importantly to a great first week of December in the well equipped and comfortable apartment overlooking the town, with remarkable views to the next nearest Island some 25 miles away. The weather was superb, and the general hospitality on the Island excellent. We didn't have a bad meal or poor service anywhere; infact we had a few wonderful meals at fantastic venues. The apartment was a perfect base (to even include a TV with English Channels - no getting away from the news!!) and hopefully we will be allowed back on some future occasion? - Russell & Clare”
“Everything was perfect!”
“Perfect place to stay in Tenerife, walking distance from the centre, close to good restaurants and bars. Car needed to explore this beautiful island. We really enjoyed staying there!”
“Excellent place to explore Tenerife. Rental car is necessary to visit other beaches and attractions apart from Los Cristianos. This apartment has got it all: great kitchen with all the appliances you would expect. Nice shower after a day on the beach. Perfect terrace to enjoy the evening in a cool breeze. Quiet bedroom for a good nights sleep. ”

Where is it?
The complex is residential and quiet being on a hill at the back of the resort yet many bars and restaurants nearby. There is a variety of restaurants, bars and supermarkets within a short walking distance. The seafront promenade is around a 10 to 12 minutes walk and in around 15 minutes you can be in the old town.
A short walk takes you to the bus station and there is a taxi rank at the bottom of the road.
