Despite our taxi driver ignoring directions as he knew best and then gettting lost !
Villa Zen is located in a rather out of the way location in Adeje Town. That is meant as a compliment as Adeje has more character than the more touristy areas. A 4km walk downhill to lovely La Caleta or use the Titsa local bus service even if the timetable is not entirely accurate !
The Villa itself is of a reasonable standard over 4 floors and represented good value for money. Nice touch to have Netflix as there were a couple of cloudy days. Only criticism would be the games room. Not a reason I would have booked the Villa but nothing was working as far as I could tell. No ball for the fusbal table. The pool table sloped so all the balls ran down to end of the table rendering a game meaningless. Just as well as my wife would probably have beaten me in any case.
I am reluctant to review this wonderful property as I dont want everybody rushing to stay!! Its an absolute gem and a credit to Jenny the owner. Sometimes when you book online you don't believe that the accommodation will be as it appears but this property is even better than the pictures. Inside and outside did not disappoint, it is very well equipped inside but what makes this villa so lovely to stay at are the different outside spaces and of course the heated pool.
The location is ideal, its in a quiet residential area of Adeje only 100yds to a small cluster of bars and cafes, less than 10 minutes walk to Mercadona and Tu Trebol supermarkets and about 15 minutes walk to the centre of the old town. For those looking for more action its only 10 minutes by taxi (8 euros) to Costa Adeje. The bus stop is at the top of the street but as there were five of us it was better value to use taxis. We ate all our meals out which I will review separately although if you self catered the villa was fully equipped and also has a barbeque.
We ate in immediate vacinity at Selfie Pizza very good and they do takeaway, lunch almost every day at Bar Tabaiba which had amazing toasties and sandwiches and was so cheap, sandwiches and drinks for 5 people 20 euros!!! In Adeje old town we ate at Oasis and Damary. In Caleta at El Caldero and Costa Adeje Sebastian, Limoncello, Secrets Tapas also two afternoons on the beach at Coqueleche for lunch and the live music.
Just back from a week at villa Zen with my family _ garden area beautiful with lots of separate seating/sunlounging areas _ inside extremely spacious and tastefully furnished _ would highly recommend .
We would highly recommend Villa Zen. Everything was as described. The house is spacious, spotlessly clean and fully equipped. We arrived in the evening and the garden area is impressive, full of plants, lights and the huge pool. The area surrounding the villa is very quiet and there are some local restaurants and shops within walking distance. The game room and the children playground were very appreciated by us, (we have 3 kids of 12,10 and 6) Thank you Hugo and family for a fantastic time in Tenerife !!
We had a fantastic week at Villa Zen - the outside space and pool area is so beautiful and the villa is spacious and well equipped. The pool was cleaned 3 times a week and was very well maintained. We loved the games rooms in the basement and the outside eating area. We had a hire car which I think is useful here as you are not in a main resort but the local buses seemed clean and regular. There is a large free public car park opposite the villa. Jenny and Hugo provided us with loads of information on the best areas to eat and visit. Overall we were very impressed and would have no hesitation in booking a return visit.
We had a really great time at Villa Zen. It's a beautiful villa with fantastic views. Jenny was also very helpful and gave us tips on restaurants etc.
However, the pool was extremely cold when we arrived (far too cold to swim in -despite paying it to be heated). We had to wait 2 days for it to be warm enough to swim in it. I'm not sure if they would agree to begin heating the pool the day before, but if not I suggest paying an additional day for this to be done before arriving.
Apart from that, we had a great time and I highly recommend Villa Zen!
