Nature really is all around you at the villa so when you look up the cliff behind the villa you can see lot's of different types of birds nesting and flying past along with rabbits and goats running wild on the cliff edge.

Christmas 2009

  • 5 of 5

Myself, partner Chris and mum stayed at Villa Maximus over Christmas. It was the first time any of us had been away over Christmas, we were made to feel very welcome and at home. We were greeted by the housekeeper Gail who showed us around the villa, she is always on the end of the phone if you need her for anything. There was even a christmas tree up in the lounge.

The villa is set up on a hill on the side of the cliff face, and has amazing views out to sea and across to La Gomera. Los Gigantes village is only 5-10 minutes walk down the hill, and you can always jump in a taxi if you are loaded up with shopping on the way back.

The villa is beautifully decorated with all modern appliances. If you want a relaxing luxury break then Villa Maximus is ideal.

Stunning location but tired property

  • 1 of 5

The initial look of the property was good but within the first few days more and more problems arose eg lack of glass ware, scratched non-stick pans without lids,three toilets not flushing properly, chipped crockery and badly stained mattress and pillows. We made the owners representative aware of the problems and she addressed the matter of the glassware (2 ill-matched wineglasses in a villa accommodating 8 people) and also eventually supplied change of sheets having first said we weren't entitled to any! This is the first time we have stayed anywhere that did not provide a change of bedding over a two week stay. When we returned we e-mailed the owner and pointed out the problems. His response was far from satisfactory,claiming that he did not recognise his "beautiful villa " in our description. We will forward a copy of our e-mail as we think this place is letting Owners Direct down. We would recommend Los Gigantes for a holiday but would definitely not send anyone to Villa Maximus.

Owner's Response: Thank You for your review and we are glad you found the location of my Villa to be in a Stunning position. I am very disappointed that you thought my beautiful villa to be "tired" due to the issues you highlighted which I will attempt to address. 1. LACK OF GLASSWARE. We have a large selection of Glasses within the villa so without a specific note in relation to exactly what glasses you thought we are lacking it's very hard to give a relative answer. You mentioned "two ill matched wine glasses" these where replaced with matching glasses the same day you made your telephone call. 2. SCRATCHED NON STICK PANS WITHOUT LIDS We again have a large selection of Pans which we continually replaced should they get worn to maintain our high standard. We found one Pan that had scratches on its base and all pan lids were indeed in the cupboards. 3. THREE TOILETS NOT FLUSHING We have checked all out toilets and they flush perfectly. 4. CHIPPED CROCKERY We have removed all crockery from within the kitchen cupboards and found one plate to be chipped, which we sincerely apologise for. 5. BADLY STAINED MATTRESS AND PILLOWS We have been unable to find any stains on any mattress and indeed all our mattress have protectors on them that are cleaned after each stay to ensure we do not have any stains present. Again the Pillows we could not find any stains. 6. CHANGE OF BEDDING We can arrange a change of bedding (as we did for you at no extra cost on the day you contacted us) if a Guest requests this. Alternatively we have a wash room with all the necessary white goods to enable our guests to wash whatever they like whilst they are at our villa. We also provide a full selection of bath towels, hand towels and even beach towels. After your stay I did receive an email from you in relation to the issues above and I did say "I did not recognise this to be my "beautiful villa" To finalise my response to your grossly misleading review I cannot understand why you did not bring to our attention when you were in the villa all the 6 issues you had above. Janie my Villa Manager and Juan My maintenance Engineer visit the villa twice a week so any issue could have been discussed with them at any point, you could have emailed them or telephoned them also. You raised 6 points in your review and the outcome was 1 chipped plate and a scratched pan and this lead you to review my villa as a 1 Star property thats tired. It's very strange as I have had 30 plus reviews nearly all 5 Stars.

Very spacious with a superb view over the mountain side!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures doesn't do the villa justice, I think. It came as a surprise to all of us just how spacious the outer deck, pool and common areas really are. Perfect for the eight of us! The place has a modern feel to it and lots of places to hang out.

The view is stunning and the villa has all the amenities one could hope for.

If I nit pick the only thing that could be improved was the wifi, which is quite important these days - it was very slow and sometimes unreliable. But i'm guessing this has more to do with the service provider. Also there could have been some more cutlery and glasses.

But none of these things are enough to not warrant five stars. Thank you for helping us celebrate two birthdays and a new years evening in an awesome way!

Fabulous views, clean,well equipped and comfortable accommodation and heated pool; great villa.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent service from Janie & Gary, the friendly Villa managers, who met us on arrival on a Sunday evening and sorted out minor problems quickly.

The views and well furnished terraces provided the perfect setting for a relaxing break.

Parking outside was often a problem but could always be found about 150 metres further down the steep hill.

Beautiful villa & amazing scenery

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa. Had 15 amazing nights there. The views are to die for and the photo's don't capture how beautiful the scenery is. The villa was lovely, clean & very well maintained with everything you could need. Nick (owner) was great with the numerous emails I sent him! It was the first time we have ever done a private villa so I had lots of questions! We were met by Janie the housekeeper who showed us how everything worked and the best supermarket to shop in..we also had bread,milk,jam,butter on arrival which my son very much appreciated. I had the most relaxing holiday ever. We used the complimentary concierge team who were also fantastic. Nothing was to much trouble. They really do go that extra mile. If you have any doubts don't this villa is amazing. We rented a car which we found invaluable as I'm not much of a walker (4inch heels and hills not a good combo)! However there were plenty of families being super energetic! Loved watching the little ghetto's that came out in the evening when I was sipping my wine on the terrace.

Would I go back..absolutely in a heart beat.

Thank you Nick for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Lovely property in great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the booking was very smooth - from the confirmation to the key handover by Janie - nothing seemed too much trouble to request.

The property itself is very nice and has a great location overlooking the small harbour and sea. A nice pool and lots of areas to sunbathe.

Los Gigantes is also well placed along the coast - we had several day trips, both north and south and the central location worked well for us.

Hope to see you again soon.

This Outstanding 4 Bed Excutive Villa is located in the picturesque fishing village of Los Gigantes and has the benefit of a quiet peaceful position high up next to the Cliffs of Los Gigantes allowing amazing Sea Views towards the islands of La Gomera, La Palma & the sheer Sea Cliff face of Los Gigantes (2nd highest Sea Cliffs in Europe). Los Gigantes Village & it's Sea Cliff's are popular with tourists who come to view the beautiful village and awe inspiring Cliffs. Los Gigantes has its own Marina with restaurants and gift shops, the village it's self has a small square with a beautiful little church at it's centre. The village centre has many great pubs restaurants including 'Rincon de Juan Carlos' renowned to be the best gourmet experience in Tenerife. Los Gigantes is more suited to family's and couples looking for peace and quiet although within a 30 minute drive you can soon get to the busy resorts of Las Americas and Los Cristianos with their Theme parks and all night bars and Disco's

Recommended Places to Visit

The Giants – Cliffs of Los Gigantes:

Plunging an impressive 1600 feet into the Atlantic, this curtain of stone lining the northwest corner of Tenerife are absolutely stunning. The best way to see them is by boat, although they're also mighty damned impressive from one of the quayside bars with glass of frosty beer in hand too.

Teide National Park:

No visit to the island is complete without at least a drive through the pine forests to the bizarre lunar landscape of one of Spain's most popular national parks. And of course, once there, you can't miss the big pointy thing jutting into the sky. That's the volcano. Not just any volcano though, Mount Teide is the world's third largest. Take the cable car to the top for a God-like view of the surrounding islands.


Tenerife's very own Shangri-la. This picturesque village cligns precariously to the side of the mountains in the north-west of Tenerife, hidden from the rest of civilisation and looking very much like it did centuries ago. A switchback road corksrews up and down to the the village from Santiago del Teide, so if you're of a nervous disposition you might want to close your eyes (not if you're the driver obviously). Failing that, book one of our Tenerife island tours and let someone else take the strain.

Siam Park:

Not a natural attraction admittedly, but still one that shouldn't be missed. Named as one of the best 10 water parks in the world, if you like your thrills and spills wet, you have just got to go to this Thai-themed water park with loads of scream-inducing rides and slides, a gigantic wave pool complete with gold sand beach, and a mini-aquatic park just for kids.

Loro Park:

A veritable Noah's Ark of animals, an artificial iceberg complete with snow and penguins and one of the best dolphin shows this side of the Atlantic are to be found amongst the 8,000 palm trees and exotic jungle of Loro Parque in Puerto de la Cruz. That's not to even mention the bicycle riding parrots, the killer whales and the sharks...or the gorillas, the flamingos's no good, you'll just have to go and see for yourself.


Tenerife is golf mad with courses at Abama a unique game of golf awaits you at this exceptional 18-hole course, a genuine work of art created by Dave Thomas. Fabulous views of the sea and the island of La Gomera await you at all of the holes and you can improve your swing on the practice green (3 holes) or just sit and relax at the Club House.

Other Activities:

Self drive Boat Hire, Dolphin and Whale watching Boat Trips, Jet Ski rentals etc.

Car Hire:

Direct from the Airport try

Very competitively Priced and Great Cars and Service. Average Price per week 90 euros.
