Yet again, on our sixth visit to Villa Esselle, we have had an amazing two weeks break! Great to see and use the new kitchen and as a vertically challenged person I was really happy to find I could reach items in all the cupboards too! Villa was beautifully clean as usual. Ideally situated close (but not too close) to restaurants and bars if you want them and with a bus stop round the corner it is easy to travel about without a car. Many Thanks to David and his team.
Myself and 2 friends have just returned from a 7 night stay. A spacious villa with everything we needed. Walking distance to the supermarket, bars and restaurants. High praise for the service/food at Old Fashioned 1986 restaurant where we went for my birthday meal but you do need to book. The pool was a god send as the heat was 28 and a lovely size, depth, my only caution would be if you have small children as the patio tiles got very hot and the depth of the pool was a level 5ft. The villa is about 10 - 15 mins from the airport so you are on the flight path of large jets. I had an amazing holiday. The only constructive criticism would be to provide some parasols. This is my second rental from David and I will definitely be booking in the future.
From the decor outside and throughout the villa was excellent. It holds everything a family needs to relax even the option to do your laundry. To have your own swimming pool was amazing excellent for keeping an eye on children. My family had a wonderful stress free holiday.
With thanks to David and team (should mention Carianne, who met us at the villa in David's absence) always happy to help, they make it a relaxing stress free holiday in the beautiful Villa Esselle. Our fifth visit to the villa, I don't think it will be our last! Conveniently situated for bars and restaurants and this year we ventured out on the local buses, which are easy to use, so no need for a car if you want to explore the island or visit old haunts as we did. I wish we could have stayed longer. Many thanks again.
We have thoroughly enjoyed another stay at Villa Esselle. The spacious villa in a safe quiet location is ideal. The enclosed courtyard patio around the pool is an excellent suntrap for the whole day. Looking forward to our next visit in 2024.
We really enjoyed our holiday in Villa Esselle. It is a beautiful villa and pool area and great whatever the weather as there are comfortable sun loungers, shade, comfortable furniture inside and just a short walk to a supermarket and some restaurants [10 mins max] We also enjoyed walking along the coastline which could be reached in about 20 mins walk.The area was very quiet with the only noise being airplanes flying overhead. These were not large ones and because it was so quiet in between we were fine with that. The payoff was that the villa is in a quiet area with the very Spanish towns of El Medano and Los Abrigos just a short taxi ride away. There we found lovely local restaurants and a Spanish holiday vibe rather than a British hotel area and this was what we were hoping for. We could not fault the Villa because the outside area was so comfortable and a real sun trap. The sofas inside were particularly comfortable, the beds were fine and although the bathrooms were a bit dated everything worked fine and the villa was beautifully clean. It was very useful having the water filter so we did not have to buy bottled water and also being given the name of a supermarket for an online shopping delivery.
Great holiday. Excellent villa. Professional agents. Would highly recommend Next visit already booked
Had a girls weekend in May,villa was stunning everything you need,girls went home Monday and my friend and me stayed rest off week our hubby's joining us for 5 days,absolutely beautiful place.
This was our second stay with this company but first time in Villa Esselle and we were again over the moon! We stayed at Villa Jacaranda the stay before which is next door but needed a bigger property as came with family. Spent 2 weeks from mid February… the first week there was all 6 of us and the second just me and my husband. The villa is so private and not overlooked with great pool and outdoor entertainment/cooking area. The pool was heated at the time we visited but by evening with the sun shining all day was extra warm to enjoy after walking back from the local San Blas centre so could be used all day/evening. The villa had a lovely layout so even when staying with family you could have privacy with its two bathrooms. My daughter and friend loved the choice of films etc on the tv, some of which were only at the pictures back home. This was great as the adults could sit outside with a drink. The area is great for access to the airport, approx 10 minutes away, close the the shops/beach/supermarket etc just a 10 minute walk. There is good access for buses and one day a week the free bus to Siam Mall. David and his team are outstanding and show such care and attention to detail and customer service. We have stayed since at another of his properties which I will review separately but again is outstanding. Keep up the great work David and thanks so much again - we will be back!! :)
We have just returned from our 4th visit to Villa Esselle and were not disappointed. The villa is well maintained very spacious with a safe enclosed pool area that gets the sunshine all day with covered areas for shade when needed. The villa is well managed by David and his team. Esselle is well situated and is a 15 minute drive to the airport, San blas centre is a 5 minute walk with a good selection of restaurants bars and shops. There is a small supermarket at San blas which is open till 10pm and there are 2 large supermarkets within a 10 minute drive at the main road into Golf Del Sur. We have always hired a car but there is a good bus service to all the popular areas as well as taxis. Tours and trips can be arranged locally if needed. Overall we can strongly recommend the Villa.
Villa Esselle is well appointed with a lovely pool which is totally secluded. Plenty of room for 6 people. It is near the South Airport and the local shops and restaurants are just a short stroll away, which is very convenient and so a car is not essential.
Super villa in a great location. The villa has everything you need with 3 well appointed bedrooms. The outdoor space with the private pool make this villa a must.
We stayed at Vila Esselle for 3 weeks in October 21. The Vila was Immaculate throughout and equipped with everything needed. The area is quiet and just a 5 minute walk to the San Blas square with shops, amazing restraunts and pubs. The pool was a huge attraction with this Vila and it didn't disappoint, having a heated pool made a difference as we have 2 children. No negatives at all with this property. We loved it so much we have booked again for next year. Thank you to David for your help, 5 star service
We enjoyed a lot this villa, it is very big and comfortable, the pool is great! Spacious place, many rooms, large kitchen. there is where to roam. Airplanes rarely fly during the week, you quickly get used to them. It didn't really bother us. Lovely gas grill! The sea is 1 km away on foot, the beaches are rocky, but there is a town nearby where people swim directly from the bay, very convenient. By the way there are many restaurants too. walk about 2 km. We generally liked it very much.
We have just returned from another fab stay at Villa Esselle, we've stayed here many times and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.. The Villa is spotlessly clean and is extremely well equipped with everything that you could possibly need to have a fabulous holiday. The pool is fantastic, it's larger than most and it's actually possible to swim, the outdoor area is also really well maintained. Situated in a quiet residential area, Villa Esselle is completely private and isn't overlooked. The closest town is San Blas which has a selection of restaurants and bars and a supermarket is only a 5 minute walk from the villa. David is always on hand to help should you need assistance, nothing is too much trouble for him. We've booked again for January and can't wait to go back
The Villa was great for our family. Spacious inside, great heated pool, and wonderful outdoor space was perfect for BBQ on the gas grille and entertaining guest. The location has great access to restaurants and the sea (short walk). The golf courses nearby are also nice and good for all levels. I hope to stay again!
This was second stay in Villa Esselle and it just keeps getting better!! We all thought the new window in the kitchen was great. We are a family of six and this clean, well equipped, spacious villa is brilliant for us all. The pool area is great and very private. The booking system was straightforward and all contact with David was positive. We would not hesitate to book again.
We love this villa and have stayed many times for its location, cleanliness and amazing pool. Great views of mount Teidi and the sea from the balconies. Always our first choice.
From check in to check out first class family loved this villa and we will be back
We have been to Tenerife a number of times. The villa is beautifully located close enough to bars, restaurants and shops. The villa is lovely and spacious. Enough space for everyone. The villa is well equip and is a home from home feel. We had a great time and thanks to David and Rosemary who always are so helpful. Would use again.
This was my second stay at this villa. Very well equipped with a great pool. Great place to relax and let the world go by
Been going there for years. Love it . Ticks all the boxes . Gets better every year !
Another lovely stay at villa Esselle. The villa is not overlooked and in a quiet area but close to shops & restaurants of San Blas. Villa has everything you need and David is always on hand if you have any queries.
Vi havde en fantastisk ferie.
Loved this villa, very quiet area but in short walking distance to bars and restaurants. Outside area is fantastic, pool was fab, the TV set up is great particularly if you like sport, all Sky sports and BEIN sports channels were great to have. Villa is very well equipped and is comfortable. Would reccommend Old Fashioned restaurant on the upper square, food was excellent, wll definitely return here again
We've stayed in a number of villas in Tenerife and this one is definitely up there with the best. The Villa is very spacious, well equipped and is spotlessly clean both Inside and out-towels and bedding are changed weekly. The pool is large, well maintained and great for swimming, all of the outside area is totally private and not overlooked. San Blas is the nearest town (about a 5 minute walk) and although it's very small, there is a supermarket and a few good restaurants. Car hire is recommended as the villa is about a 15/20 minute drive from Las America's & Los Cristianos. We had a fabulous holiday at the villa, it is situated in a residential area that very safe and secure which is important to us. The booking process is smooth and David is always on hand should issues occur (we didn't have any). We enjoyed our visit so much that we have rebooked for June- can't wait!
Villa Esselle is a spacious villa which is very clean and well equipped with a great large TV and a brilliant pool!! It is situated in a quiet area but is very near to all facilities. The booking process was easy and all contact with David was positive. A great holiday was had for all in our family group of 6, we loved it and would not hesitate to recommend it and intend to return.
This villa does not dissapoint evrything you could want from a holiday villa just like home from home but with a pool and sunshine , lovely.
The villa is a great base to explore the island. Although only 4 of us there is plenty of space for 6, inside and out. Good size pool. The villa is private and not overlooked, clean, well designed and well equipped with everything you need to self cater, although there is a good selection of excellent restaurants within a 5 - 10 minute walk. David is very helpful and on hand to resolve any problems. Would recommend a car for convenience. We visited Siam Park, Loro Park, Mount Teide by cable car, Santa Cruz, Playa de Las Americas. The villa is quite close to the flight path into the airport so you may want to consider this if you think aircraft noise would be an issue. We were out much of the time so not a problem for us. We loved our stay here and would book again if we return to Tenerife.
As always, perfection, great communication great villa nothing was too much for David and team highly recommend so much so booked again .
We stayed for a week 5th June ,the villa was large ,clean with a nice secluded pool area.lots of tv channels,good internet and 5min walk to restaurants and supermarket.the pool was warm enough for swimming and the place was very secure.it was a bit noisy with the planes going over but we knew that before we booked as we were out a lot it did not effect us.David who looks after the place was very helpful and let us have a late check out . 10 minutes from airport and easy parking outside villa. We will be returning
The whole family enjoyed our stay at this villa , we would love to return one day
We really enjoyed our holiday in Villa Esselle. The property feels very private and spacious. We especially liked the large kitchen and the pool area. The property is close to the main supermarkets Mercadona and Lidl, as well the ocean.
We had a great time in this villa. It is well equipped and provided everything we needed for our holiday. The outside area especially was appreciated by all of us. The pool was immaculately clean and the surrounding pool area was very spacious and well kept. The sun loungers were very comfortable and the barbecue was great to cook on. We have been to this area many times and the villa was a good location to walk to our favourite restaurants and bars. We hope to come back soon.
Stayed for our second time in the first two weeks of September and had a lovely time. The villa has everything you could want with the only downsides being the lack of air conditioning and the rock hard mattresses on the single beds. To be honest we never needed air con but it could be uncomfortable if you had hot nights and for two adults with kids the beds probably wouldn't be an issue but 4-6 adults and there will be problems. You may have seen other reviews moaning about the planes going overhead but it never bothered us and we like the position of the villa. Hopefully going back next year !
What a fantastic villa - everything was supplied and all the equipment was clean and ready for use. Nothing was too much trouble for David and he was very helpful. The pool was clean and well maintained - pool man & gardener came every week. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends & family - would love to go again next year. Perhaps air conditioning could be installed in the bedrooms as it was really hot when we were there but ample fans were supplied. Thanks again for a lovely holdiay
On arrival the villa was clean and tidy and smelt lovely. Everything was ready for us to start our holiday. There was a helpful booklet all about the villa and the surrounding areas. The pool was spotless and a lovely temperature and our boys loved having it outside their room every morning. Whilst sitting around the pool it was always very peaceful, apart from the odd aeroplane flying over which didn't bother us one bit. The villa is within five minute walk from San Blas. David was always at the end of the phone if we had any questions and was always very helpful. We would highly recommend this villa and hope to go back some time soon.
The villa had everything we required for our holiday, well maintained and nice and close to the town of San Blas which had a supermarket and bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. All my family thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, with the youngest being 5 and the oldest being 78. We even made a game of the planes going over the villa. Would highly recommend this property and Andy was extremely helpful.
Superb location,short walk from shops/restaurants/ bars, a lovely homely villa ,totally private and secure offering complete relaxation,....who could ask for more. Loved it and will be returning A big thank you to David for effortless booking procedure ,and any help should it be required.
What a lovely Villa Esselle is. It is extremely well equipped and best of all spotlessly clean. We only used the oven once but again it was spotless. Lots of different eating area's and lovely sunbeds. Beds and bedding were good quality, they even had mattress protectors. Lovely pool and very secure garden. Supermarket and shops within walking distance but for nicer restaurants head into Los Abrigos or El Medano. All in all a fabulous holiday. Many thanks.
Our stay at villa Esselle was excellent. We were a family of 6 and felt at home during our time there. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a safe, quiet, and spacious place to stay. The heated pool was the excellent. We will be looking to book again next year.
We stayed at villa Esselle 11th till 18th july 2016 and it was fantastic it was very well equipped and tidy . Golf del sur is a lovely place to stay and very quiet so it was good for us just to chill out and relax . We had a few meals out in the resort and it was top nosh David and his team keep a lovely place and the villa is very private no prying eyes we will definitely be back next holiday it the villa is available its only 11 minutes from the airport so from coming off the plane to being in the lovely pool is less than 1 hour hope you have as much fun as we did.
The villa was all that was described-very quiet & relaxing-you don't notice the planes after a while & they didn't disturb us at night. Apart from that we found the villa & surroundings perfect for our family holiday & would definitely consider coming back again especially our 4 yr old grandson who learnt to swim. David & Rosemary were also extremely kind & helpful. Supermarkets & other shops/restaurants were within a short walk. If you are buying drink the little shops have a better selection & cheaper prices than the s'mkt. Island Car hire(5 mins walk from the villa) were excellent. You can either pick the car up down near the supermarket or by arrangement they will have a car for you on arrival at the airport.
Lovely big villa, a large well laid out kitchen, had everything we needed and very clean pots and pans. So many times I've had to 'brillo' saucepans before I could use them. The whole villa was spotless and well cared for. The BBQ was also nice and clean ready to use. Bathrooms nice and modern, all in all a very nice villa with a fab pool, it was heated which was a great bonus as we were there in April. The pool and patio area is totally enclosed and private, with loads of space for the sun beds. The pool was a credit to the pool man who kept it clean and sparkling. We've been to many Spanish villas and the pool hasn't been looked after, which has lead to days of not being able to use it. The large pergola was a great asset and was lovely to sit under while eating out as we did most days. The villa has everything you would desire for a wonderful holiday. We felt very secure there, the pool was fab, the villa was fab, and it was close to the local shops with some really nice eating places. Very nice management company and cleaning lady who came to change our towels and sheets mid way through the holiday.
Beautiful villa with everything you need. Even had a botle of bubbly chilling in the fridge! Secluded and totally private with a good sized pool. Would make great honeymoon venue as not overlooked. easy walk to bars and restaurants. High wall mean it is sheltered on windy days. Lovely rooms in traditional styles. Fabulous holiday and definately going back.
We have stayed at this villa before so knew what to expect. Location is excellent with bars and eating places just a short stroll away. It's nice how the french doors open out onto the pool area from main bedroom and living from. Good family accommodation, spacious and well equipped. The only downside was that it was so hot and getting a good night's rest was hard. Air conditioning in the bedrooms would be a real plus. Nice friendly greeting by David who was quick to respond to our request for an outdoor drying rack.
We had a wonderful time at the Villa. Everything needed was provided. The outside space with the pool was amazing. The owners (Lynne and Stuart) are lovely people, whom we have rented from before- Villa Jacaranda next door. The manager David was extremely friendly and helpful and came to the villa to help us operate the TV as we are confirmed techno-phobics! All in all a perfect holiday, many thanks. Dianne and David
Hi David Just a quick e-mail to thankyou for everything leading up to and during our stay at Villa Esselle. Its such a shame to be home!! We honestly cannot say enough about the whole experience - the Villa was absolutely perfect and had all the necessary ingredients for a terrific holiday and we were given the space and privacy to just get on with enjoying ourselves while everything around the holiday just went smoothly. We think we left the Villa in a habitable state - we left some blow up pool stuff just in case you keep it for the next guests but if not figured you could just dump them. My parents were also blown away by it during their weeks stay. Your instructions up to Mount Teide were followed to the letter too and gave us some terrific views so thanks also for that. I hope we have reason to be in contact again about another trip to Tenerife as if Villa Esselle is an example of what can be expected it will certainly be on the top of our list. Best Regards and Thank you again for everything that you did for us. Peter & Alice Murphy Dublin
We have just returned from Villa Esselle at Golf Del Sur. This villa is fab and really big, the photos we had seen before our stay does not do this villa justice as it is much larger. It is spotlessly clean with plenty of crockery and cooking untensils for 8 people. The pool area is simply divine. On our arrival we chose to have the Z bed for the youngest member of our party but a couple of the slats were broken so we called David to ask him if we could have some Double size bedding so we could use the sofa bed instead, he arrived later that day with extra bedding even though it was a sunday and the cleaning company they use were closed, so we thank him very much for his quick response. Bars, restaurants and shops are all close by all offering really good food.Our booking for this villa was simple with great communication with David and Rosemary.We have had a wonderful stay at Villa Esselle and would like to thank everyone involved with the running of it, we give it 10/10 and 5 stars .

"Trip Advisor Review" The villa was very clean and is reasonably well equipped. Could do with some extra blankets in the winter time as it got very cool some nights. Plenty of space for everyone. It is very private and feels very secure. The welcome pack was for us a little too much booze and not enough basic's but luckily the local supermarket is only a ten minute walk away. If a little on the expensive side. The villa offered everything we needed for our holiday, the planes going overhead are a nuisance but you get used to them. It is very well located with São Blas providing everything you need only ten minutes away. Would recommend visiting the nearby Mercadona supermarket for a large shop only 7 euros each way, by taxi. Could do with a bit more information about the buses in the pack, as we has chosen not to have a car. The villa is ideally located for some very good coast walks . The pool is a great size and although taking the cover on and off was a faff it was no great hardship. The sun beds could probably do with re stringing or replacing or just to have had a pad on would have made them more comfortable. We had a lovely time and commended and thank David on the service he provided, nothing was too much trouble, a complete gentleman who waited with us until our errant transfer taxi turned up. I would heartily recommend this villa. 4 of 5 stars Ease of booking 4 of 5 stars Directions to the property 5 of 5 stars Key pickup/access to the property 5 of 5 stars Overall condition 4 of 5 stars Quality of bedding/mattresses 3 of 5 stars Kitchen/utensils quality 4 of 5 stars Cleanliness of bathroom 4 of 5 stars Quality of facilities/amenities 5 of 5 stars Service
"We stayed here for our honeymoon and had a wonderful time It's a beautiful villa set in a really quiet residential area, we loved the courtyard with the private pool and were sad to leave at the end of the week."
"We have just returned from an 11 day family holiday at Villa Esselle and all agreed it was superb in every way. The villa is extremely spacious and well laid out and the pool and patio area is just perfect. The residential area in which it sits is so quiet and peaceful and yet just a 5 minute stroll from the bars and restaurants in the main squares of Golf Del Sur. As other reviewers have mentioned, you soon get used to the planes flying overhead and they didn't bother us at all. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle of the main resorts of Tenerife then we would recommend Golf Del Sur, and Villa Esselle is the perfect place to stay. We certainly hope to back soon..."
"We returned this week from a very pleasant four week stay at the villa. We wanted to try holidaying over the worst of the British winter, in warmer climes and looked for somewhere where we felt comfortable and had some space and privacy. Villa Esselle gave us all of that. The villa is set in a residential area and so we had the seclusion and peace and quiet we were looking for. (As others have said, you soon become immune to the planes overhead). It is very spacious, especially for two people!, the sofas were comfortable and it was great on the more chilly evenings to be able to curl up on the sofa and read or catch up on the news on the British TV channels. The kitchen is very large and had everything we needed. Our favourite part of the villa was undoubtedly the pool and patio area which is totally enclosed and private, with loads of space for the sun beds and a lovely pool which was always at a very comfortable temperature, so even on the cooler days we had it was still a pleasure to get in the water. It was also very pleasant to be able to have lunch on the patio under the shade of the pergola. Superb. The villa is set in a very convenient location, a few minutes walk from the local supermarket, shops, bars and restaurants at Sans Blas, and not much further to the quaint harbour at Los Abrigos where we enjoyed some super fish meals at the harbour restaurants. We found the walk in the opposite direction to Los Abrigos to be our favourite and you can walk along the coast/cliff edge for miles. We would walk for about one and half hours before turning back. Planned to make it to Costa Silencio but never quite made it. Think it was the promise of the wonderful pancakes at the creperie near the harbour that drew us back too soon! We had a wonderful four weeks and so send our thanks for enabling us to explore this region by staying at your holiday home.
