Exactly as described... beautiful

5 of 5
August 17. We had the most amazing time in this beautiful house. Anabel met us and showed us where everything was and the best places to shop. Carrefour is quick and easy to get too. We spent most of our time on the beach at Playa la Nea which was a 10 min walk. Small and quiet with a beach bar..excellent. We hired a car to see as much of island as possible. La Laguna especially worth a visit as were the beaches north on the other side of the island.. Playa de Benijo was fabulous and worth the mountain drive! Closest restaurant was in Raduzal but we didn't bother as the view from our balcony as we ate each night was better than paying for any meal out! Waking to watch the sun rise from the bedroom windows and drinking wine under the stars to the sound of the waves... what's not to like? Thank you Anabel for the most relaxing holiday.

Great holiday in a little town and in a comfortable apartment

5 of 5
The apartment is spacious, comfortable and located only 5 min on foot from Las Teresitas Beach. There is everything what you need for holidays. The apartment is very clean and well equipped. You can feel there like at your home. There was no problem with Wi-Fi. ... and what is the most important: the owners of the apartment are very good hosts! San Andres is a tiny town and everything you need to enjoy the holiday you have at sight from the window: bakery, a small supermarket, fish restaurant with delicious fresh sea-food, local bars, italian restaurant etc. I recommend this place for those, who like the local tastes and relax away from the big tourists' resorts. Around the town San Andres you can climb the beautiful Anaga Mountains. When you miss the city, in ten minutes by car or bus you can be in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and enjoy the life of capital city.
