Rays Place – Tenerife

We decided to include ‘Ray’s Place’ on this page, for those of you who might want to enjoy a retreat for a modest price in sunny Tenerife. Ray has been well known to Reach for over 10 years. He is a kind and sincere man, with tons of integrity, which is why we are happy to say to anyone looking for a break of this kind that we believe you won’t be disappointed. It is our experience that anyone who genuinely takes a journey of personal growth irreversibly changes and becomes the ‘best they can be’. Ray has taken such a journey and he assures us that this is a special place, where one can create special memories and his word is good enough for us! Take a look and see what you think.



Tenerife is renowned for its all-the-year-round sunshine, volcanic beaches, and bustling bars and night life. Most people will have heard of Playa de Las Americas, Los Cristianos and, perhaps Los Gigantes and Santa Cruz.

However, there’s so much more to Tenerife. There’s Mt.Teide, the hidden village of Masca, lots of quiet, unspoilt villages and resorts, and the distinctive off shore islands of La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. Europe’s biggest and most spectacular water-park, Siam, is due to open any time now.

Callao Salvaje is located 10 minutes and a world away from the bustling centre of Las Americas on the road to Los Gigantes. It’s a quiet, unspoilt resort with its own distinctive character. Its name translates to wild pebbles after the beautiful secluded cove at the bottom of the hill.

Within the resort itself are 3-4 large hotel/apartment complexes, a couple of dozen bars and restaurants and a full range of shops, cafes and internet cafes. There are a number of marvellous, authentic Tenerifian/Spanish restaurants.

My apartment is at Un Posto Al Sole, a 5 minute walk from the centre of the resort, on a hillside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Its part of a recently completed complex of 40 – 50 apartments in a number of 2 and 3 storey blocks arranged around a beautifully planted central area containing two heated swimming pools for residents exclusive use. Some of the apartments are occupied by locals, others by people like me who visit regularly and let their apartments out the rest of the time to friends and family.

The apartment has one twin-bedded room and a large sofa bed in the lounge and can therefore comfortably sleep up to 4 people. There’s an American-style kitchen with cooker, hob, fridge and microwave, a DVD player and a beautiful bathroom with walk in shower.

There is a small balcony to the front overlooking the ocean, and a large roof terrace with panoramic views of mountains to the rear and village and ocean to the front. It’s located on the edge of the development and is therefore not overlooked at all.

Buses to Americas and other parts of the island are cheap, regular and fun and Adeje Golf course is only 5 minutes away.

The apartment is available for short or longer term lets at £200 per week (£250 per week during the Christmas period). You should budget about £200 in flights though, if you’re lucky, you may get them for less. Cheap flights.com and Thomas Cook.com are well worth a look. A small car, with air condition and excess waiver can be hired for about £100 per week. Alternatively, I can arrange for you to be picked up and/or taken to the airport or anywhere else you need to go. I have English friends who live in the village and are usually on hand to help if needed.

Callao is a great place if you want peace and quiet and a bit of ‘class’ If you think you’d like to use the apartment please give me a ring (Ray) or email me;
