“excellent property for a large group of noisy, middle aged friends”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a surprise the property is. Its hidden up a winding mountain road, but the directions from the owner Mark were very good (about half an hour from airport). Mark had done some shopping for us as we had a late flight, he met us at the villa and showed us round and gave us some friendly tips.
The size of the property is breathtaking as are the views all around. Dont be miss led, it does have minor faults and some things do need updating eg dishwasher, sofas in lounge and garden furniture, but in the main it is excellent value for money.
The villa is very isolated and you will need your own transport. We ate in the hotel in the nearest village a few times, the food is very good and staff very attentive.
Most evenings we travelled to El Modina, lovely town, not too touristy, friendly people and a FANTASTIC FIESTA whilst we were there. Twelve euros for return minibus back to villa at night, great value.
Fantastic pets whilst we were there, lizards, the villa has lots of them, Eddie Lizzard lived in the back bedrooms and a couple in the lounge( they run off when they see you).
Pool area very nice but it is quite a few degrees cooler up the mountain and prone to cloud. At night a fleece is advisable if sat outside.
Lots of dog barking in the distance but that is the only noise you hear(apart from locals shooting on sat and sunday).
Managed to visit all the usual tourist areas whilst there, mount Tigue(cable car shut due to high winds) amazing vistas. Los Gigantes worth the visit but avoid Los Christianos and Las Americas (unless you like English/Irish bars ad infinitum).

“Amazing huge house, made our holiday!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Firstly great communication with Mark the owner from the day of booking, we emailed a few times with questions and we had a reply everytime. We were given great directions to find the Villa, on arrival, we were gobsmacked at the space! The photos don't quite show the amount of space, indoor and out!
The two younger kids couldn't wait to get in the clean warm pool, the older kids couldn't wait to get in the games room and play pool!
Plenty of cutlery, crockery (a few more glasses wouldn't go a miss, didn't help that we broke 3 during our stay, which Mark was very understanding about, sorry Mark!) plenty of spare blankets (not that we needed any during our stay) and lots of towels.

Couldn't of asked for a bigger, homely place to stay, beds were comfy and the house was so cool. There is no air con but it wasn't needed at all, temps were up to around 35 degrees and the house didn't get hot at all (lots of fans provided if needed but we didn't need these either)

If I had to pick at anything, it would be, dishwasher really does need updating, it works and cleans but is very old and a new airer and/or a proper washing line is desperately needed!

WiFI was amazing, most of the time we had 4 phones and two tablets connected and it was quicker than my wifi at home!

Mark is a really nice genuine guy and we would definitely use this villa again, thank you Mark :)

“'WOW' what a place to stay”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

'WOW' what a place to stay in, myself and my family stayed at the manor house for 2 weeks in june/july.
When we first arrived Mark the owner was there to meet us and could not be any more accommodating and very welcoming and as a added bonus even got the basic essentials for us in as we were not arriving until late evening.
The house itself was in very good condition, very spacious and ideal for all of our families needs.
The house itself in my opinion caters for everyone whether it be a group of friends or large family's.
My 3 year grandson loved the size of garden and pool which he spent most of his time in.
The area that the house is in, is very peaceful and picturesque, the views around the property are stunning and its only a very short drive to san isidro where the nearest main shops are.
We all would recommend this property to anyone and we all hope to go back and stay there again next year.

“Perfect for our needs”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The Mannor house was exactly what are group of 7 needed for a fantastic holiday. There space in abundance so for a group, half of which didn't know each other there was plenty of areas where they could find peace and quiet and the main communal area was plenty big enough for everyone to come and cook and hang out together.

The swimming pool and games room where a great addition and provided hours of entertainment. Climbing was the main purpose of our trip and the house is ideally located less than 40 minutes drive from Arico gorge and El Rio, but still within a very easy drive of big supermarkets.

The only small criticism is that I am not convinced about the build quality, the fire place is falling appart and the patio doors do not seem that secure (however there is a safe provided) there is also plenty of the owners belongings still in the property which is slightly strange.

The master sweet is something to behold and is bigger than my entire house. With a Jacuzzi in the bedroom and two seperate showers and sinks in the on suite whoever gets the master bedroom will be the envy of all the other guests.

Would stay there again for sure.

“A Great Property for an Extended Family”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Manor House. The villa is out in the countryside but not isolated (only 8-10mins from large supermarkets). We enjoyed the lovely views, clear air and quiet. It can be a few degrees colder up in El Salto, where the villa is located, than it is on the coast. It is about 10-15 mins drive from Medano and 20-25 mins drive from Los Christianos and Playa de Las Americas, we did not find this any problem.
The grounds around the villa are very large, well kept and completely walled in. The heated pool was warm enough for us to swim and even the baby enjoyed short dips. There is plenty of room for sunbathing and as the wind on the island tends to change direction throughout the day there is always somewhere to sit in the sun shaded from the breeze. Anyone holidaying in Tenerife during winter needs to pack some warm clothes for the odd grey day or chilly evening.
The villa has been lived in and therefore the furniture and fittings are not brand new but everything worked well including the washing machine and dishwasher. The microwave did have a mind of its own but we managed to cope with it. There was plenty of crockery, pots and pans which were all quite new. There were 7 of us and a baby and we found the villa to be spacious with a very big kitchen living room that was ideal for a family holiday where we could all be together. The bedrooms were large and 4 out of 5 were en-suite the beds were all comfortable and the bed linen and towels (including beach) were all clean. There was always plenty of hot water. The weather was average for the time of year and we did use the oil filled radiators for a few hours on occasions but we had no problems heating the property. Lots of baby equipment including cot, highchair and playpen.
The internet works efficiently and the television is run through the internet with a huge range of channels available. This did not degrade the signal and on occasions there were a few people on the internet at the same time as the television was on. We had no problem with the lighting in the property and only one downstairs connecting bedroom does not have a window.
While the property is not 5 star in terms of having brand new facilities we felt it was excellent value for money considering the size and location. We found Mark the owner very approachable keeping in touch with us throughout our stay and sorting out promptly any issues we did have.
