Frequently asked questions

Bookings

We designed our cancellation policy so that when your plans change, it’s as fair as possible to you, us and future guests who would like to take your place at Maraya. If you need to cancel your booking we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. Cancellations 15-days prior to check-in are free. Within 15-days the fee is 100% of every night from your check-in date up to 15-days prior. For example, if you inform us 10 days before your check-in date, the cancellation fee is 5 nights, if you tell us on the day you are supposed to check-in, or for no-shows, the fee is 15 nights.

First you make a request using your payment details to secure the booking. Then we’ll double check everything is all okay and confirm your booking.

Check-in is from 3 pm onwards and check-out is at 11 am. We will do our best to accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs when available.

No, our room prices include all fees and Canarian IGIC.

Coliving

Coliving is shared living and working in the same space with like-minded people. At Maraya we see coliving as a creative, natural and healthy way of living and connecting to people, introducing a new way of working within nature and within a community of productive minds.

Of course! We have two fully equipped kitchens available for all guests. You can also use our BBQ and paella pans.

We don’t generally allow pets at Maraya to ensure there’s no issues with our guests or Mayo (our cat) but we’re always open to discuss the possibility, so please get in contact if you would like to bring yours.

Maraya is a work environment and therefore is not ideal for children. If you would like to visit us with children, please contact us so we can discuss the possibilities.

Maraya is first and foremost a coliving / coworking space designed for individuals, couples or small groups. However, if you are a larger group we would be open to discuss your requirements to see if it’s a good fit.

Coworking

We have a 200mb download and 200 mb upload connection, provided to guests as a mesh network via access points located across the property all managed by a dedicated Ubiquity enterprise standard router. If you require more technical information don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.

We understand that this may be a concern, but we believe after a stay at a coliving/coworking space you will actually ask how you stayed so motivated before! First we’ve created environments that are comfortable and enjoyable to work in. Then we established house rules focused on ensuring you can get a great rest and get your work done regardless of the time-zone you’re working in. Finally our guests are people like you, who want to stay focused and work hard so in the evenings and weekends they can enjoy the experiences available at Maraya.

No, our coworking spaces are only available to guests staying at Maraya.

We understand some roles require that extra bit of screen real estate, so we’ve included 3 x 24″ monitors in our office free for anyone to use. If you’d prefer to reserve one for your stay let us know in advance, the charge to reserve a screen is €1 per day.

Community & Activities

We understand the importance of community and good vibrations – after all, this is likely one of the reasons you’ll choose Maraya. Our community aims to make you feel like you’re part of a family. We work together, eat together, yoga together, surf together and go on adventures together. We believe in inclusivity and value different perspectives, cultures and ideas.

Our minimum stay is 3 nights, but most of our guests stay much longer. A typical stay is for 1 or 2 months. We believe this is because our guests are looking to build deeper connections than a typical traveller, be it to our community, our space, their projects or the beautiful island of Tenerife.

Activities are fun, and they help us to get to know each other better and build a better community. Therefore at Maraya we love to organise activities. Many are included in your stay, such as daily yoga, our Sunday BBQ, games & movie nights, hikes or beach visits, but for some there may be additional costs. These are for activities where equipment or a guide is required, such as surfing, rock climbing, Teide stargazing, scuba diving or kayaking. We also invite guests to organise activities and will do our best to facilitate where we can.

Yes, please do! This is the essence of the sharing culture that we’re cultivating at Maraya Coliving. Whether you’re a yoga teacher, meditation guru, developer, photographer, chef, graphic designer, artist, musician, tap-dancer, (this list is endless!), we encourage you to share your skill or hidden talent with our community during your stay on one of our skill sharing nights. This is how we grow and thrive as a community.

Yes, if you’re an active outdoor adventurer then Maraya Coliving is a paradise for you. Hiking, surfing, scuba diving, mountain biking, rock climbing, kayaking, camping, horse riding,…the possibilities are endless and all within a short drive of Maraya. We are more than happy to share our knowledge and tips for what to do in the local area.

We are an international community at Maraya and we normally speak English. However, if you want to learn Spanish, we are happy to organise some lessons for you. Usually we also have some local native Spanish speakers at the house.

Travel

We have full details on how to get to Maraya at our “How to get to us” page.

Maraya is considered to be the south of Tenerife because we enjoy the same climate as the south, where it is almost* always sunny. So when packing you’ll need summer clothes for sure! In winter it’s usually a mild 20 degrees during the day but at night gets a little bit cooler (think long trousers & maybe a jumper). In summer, it’s around 30 degrees during the day and at night you can still certainly be out in just a t-shirt.

At Maraya you don’t need a car, but we recommend one for exploring the island and for sure life on Tenerife is more convenient with a car. From Maraya you can walk to a small minimarket and some local restaurants in about 10 minutes, or to the beaches, restaurants, shops and bars of Candelaria & Punta Larga in about 25 minutes downhill. Coming back up to the house you can either hop on the local bus 127 (it stops 2 minutes walk from the house) or walk back up, although uphill it’s about 30 minutes and is certain to get your heart rate up. We also offer some bicycles for hire to speed up all these times if needed.

Maraya Coliving is based in the middle! From a climate and locals perspective we’re considered the south, but the green of the valleys and the fincas around us feel more like the north. We love it here because we don’t have to choose, we get the sunshine like the south but the local and nature feeling of the north. Also from Maraya almost everything to do on the island is within ~30 minutes, like Anaga rural park, El Teide, lots of surfing spots, kiting in el Medano, La Laguna, and of course much much more!
