We had a fantastic stay in this wonderful villa - the pictures on the site do not do this property justice. The villa is in a quiet hillside location set within its own gardens in a gated compound that provided both security and privacy. The villa was not over looked on any side and provided wonderful views of the ocean from the terraces. Perfect for a get away from it all holiday but also ideally located for getting around the island - 10 Mins from Santa Cruz and only 30 mins from Los Christianos and Puerta de la Cruz so you can do all the sights/parks easily. A car is required as there are no bars or restaurants in the immediate vicinity but they can be found five minute drive away. The villa is very spacious and has two terraced areas where you can catch the sun all day. It is also very comfortable and has everything you need and is like a home from home. The washing machine was used daily and the dishwasher was a godsend as 5 people make a lot of washing up! Good internet kept the kids (3 teenagers) quiet and 4 bedrooms so everyone had their own room which was ideal for a party of 5 - the two main bedrooms are very comfortable and I wish I could have brought the mattress back with me. The owner was extremely helpful with arrangements for arrival/departure and there was a bottle of wine and bowl of fruit waiting for us when we arrived which was a nice touch. The only issues we had were the draining from the inside showers was a bit slow so you have to turn them off whilst washing to avoid them overflowing - the outside shower was amazing though and we used that one the most. The aircon was only in the master bedroom and not working, however the ceiling fans kept the villa cool enough so not really an issue. All in all we had a great time at the villa and managed to use it as a base to visit the whole of island although most days I just wanted to stay in the Villa as it was so nice. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone and would definitely stay here again.
This apartment gave us everything we could have asked for. It's in the great location of Punta Brava - about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Puerto de la Cruz. For the physically challenged - the apartment is at the top of a hill where there are beautiful views. A couple of evenings we weren't up to the climb back, after we had been walking all day in the mountains, so we just parked our car at the bottom and drove back after our evening out - it's literally 2-3 minutes drive back up to park in the underground garage that is provided - or you can take a taxi for around 3 - 4 Euros from both Punta Brava and Puerto de la Cruz.
When we first arrived and had a walk around Punta Brava we weren't sure it was the sort of place we would want to eat / drink etc. as it is not a tourist "hot spot", more a lovely local village - but how wrong we were - going to the bars and drinking with the locals was great entertainment - and there are some fantastic restaurants - our favourite was Rincon Del Mar - very quirky decor and the owner couldn't do enough - go for the paella or the house special a sort of fish stew - you won't be disappointed!
The apartment was spotlessly clean and so well equipped - probably one of the best we have ever rented. As well as the kitchen equipment, all the day to day essentials needed for the full 2 week stay, washing up liquid, cleaning products, toilet rolls, etc were provided. Lots of good quality towels for bathroom and pool/beach. Spare bedding etc and on arrival a carton of milk and bottled water so that we could make a cup of tea without having to find the local shops.
The shopping experience is always part of our holiday - buying locally grown and produced goods. The Lidl supermarket is less than 5 minutes by car and can provide just about everything - but don't forget the small local supermarkets that sell freshly made bread etc.
The heated pool is beautiful and also kept spotlessly clean – sunbeds are provided. It was great to relax there after a long day walking and listen to the seals, parrots and occasionally the chimpanzees in Lora Parque which is just down the road.
Highly recommended for a base to explore the beautiful North Tenerife.
