Beds very comfortable and kitchen equipment was really good. The outside garden area is exceptional. Very large and beautifully kept. The privacy was second to none and we enjoyed watching the kestrel and other birds of prey around the mountains at the rear of the property. Also enjoyed the bird life, lizards and butterflies in the garden. We did enjoy exploring the area but found the road up to the mountain tops a bit hair raising. We also found the TV a bit hard to get to grips with but weren't too bothered about it and could have phoned the owner to help us if we were bothered. There is a dog kennel or home next door and we did occasionally have quite a dog howling contest going on but we are dog lovers anyway and found them quite entertaining rather than a nuisance. They only kick off a few times a day anyway. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone. Thoroughtly enjoyed it all.

The location within a working banana and fruit plantation added to the 'getting away from it all' feeling, which for us is an essential part of any holiday. Puerto de La Cruz is within easy reach as are many other wonderful locations - La Laguna, Orotava, Garachico and Santa Cruz. Our experience of the Villa matched the website description exactly. The only difference was reality was even better! On a practical level everything worked like clockwork. Contact with the agent and owners was stress-free in the run-up to our stay and equally so during and afterwards: for all the right reasons, we didn't have to make contact until we handed the keys back. We would certainly rent Villa "Atlantico Views" again and have bookmarked Owners Direct for our next trip abroad!
