Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Betancuria, Canary Islands your home away from home

Fantastic apartment

5 of 5
This is a great apartment with everything you need to make it a home from home. The private terrace is a real sun trap. Very nice and quiet complex. Very central location. We would love to visit again. The owners and their managers are very helpful. I can not recommend this place highly enough.

Home from home holiday!

5 of 5
Absolutely beautiful villa which we stayed in for a week. We were so comfortable here that we only had 2 nights out in the 7. The property has been created as a home and not a rental property, the little touches such as candles and fairy lights, cushions and throws in the lounge, charger station for every type of phone/tablet etc, hairdryer and straighteners, everything really has been thought of. The location was perfect for us with regards to relaxing, it was so peaceful day or night. The golf course was great to watch in the day with golfers wandering along or the herd of goats munching on the green :) The Atlantico centre is walking distance but we used this only for takeaway food, the restaurants weren't really our choice of dining out venues and there were no bars to sit and watch the world go past in. You can walk to the harbour area which was lovely and has many more options if you want to eat out, it was a lengthy walk but goes right along the beach, we did it in the evening when it was much cooler. There is plenty of room in the villa for a large group or a family, there were 3 of us and it felt spacious without feeling like we were rattling around, the pool area has tons of space too for eating, chilling with a book or sunbathing. I can't think of a negative for this villa, Nicola has been a star all through the booking process and also since we have returned, 10 out of 10 for customer service! Steve and Anna, the property team in the resort were on hand for anything we needed and were so friendly and accommodating. If Heineken did holiday villa's..... :)
