Make a holiday rental apartment or luxury villa in North Tenerife, Canary Islands your home away from home

Tenerife holidays in North Tenerife is a haven of peace and beauty, far from the usual tourist haunts that captivate the majority of tourists to Tenerife. Traditional lifestyles and agriculture are still very important in the North, and it is here that you will find the most secluded, peaceful and picturesque parts of the island.

Things to do in North Tenerife

The national parks of North Tenerife are a real marvel. Filled with exotic flora and fauna, parks including the National Park of Las Canadas, Icod de los Vinos and the Masca National Park, are well worth exploring, and there are plenty of marked walking trails leading you to the finest spots in the area.

The Tenerife Carnival is held in Santa Cruz, and is often cited as being the second largest street carnival after the famous Rio Carnival. The Carnival is an amazing sight, filled with colour and noise. Graceful dancers, costumed revellers and amazed spectators fill the streets, and the festivals peak, which arrives on the Friday night, is a spectacle in itself, when almost anything goes! Tickets for the coronation of the Carnival Queen go on sale a week before the event.

North Tenerife is certainly not short on beaches either. The coast is lines with beaches, ranging from golden sands to the famous black volcanic sands that Tenerife's beaches are famous for. Water sports are less readily available than they are in South Tenerife, but there are still plenty of opportunities to go scuba diving, deep sea fishign and windsurfing from a self catering North Tenerife villa or apartment.

It is in an avocado plantation which we loved but the downside was that we had little direct sunshine on our patio. It didn't stop us having meals out there as it was usually the perfect temperature. Bernard was very helpful without being obtrusive. This was our second visit to Tenerife and our first to the north of the island. We found the cottage the perfect location for exploring the north and for visiting El Teide again. There was more cloud in the north as we had been warned but we didn't have rain and the area is so green. The restaurant San Diego which overlooks the sea,was lovely and within an easy walk so we used it several times both for meals and drinks. The town of La Oratava is very close and well worth a visit. We have no hesitation in recommending this property.

The garden & pool are spectacular and extremely well maintained and the villa itself is more like borrowing a beautiful home for the week rather than a rental. Desmond was a welcoming host and lives nearby should you need anything. Will be recommending to family & friends.

                                                                                5 of 5
                                                                                Stayed here at start of July for 2 weeks as a couple We have never booked a villa before and were bit unsure what it would be like. The pictures don’t do it justice. Like most of the reviews the villa could do with some updating but it doesn’t take anything away from the stay. The house is perfect for shops and food. There is a small plaza across the main road that has some lovely restaurants. There is a small path at the end of the road that takes you onto the main street. There is a supermarket just at the main crossroads (It’s actually under the main building) and unless you know it’s there you would miss it. We had a problem with the fridge, It needed a recharge with gas as it was not very cold, That was done very quick and we had a working fridge again in no time, Nothing was too much trouble for Karla or the owner. The only downside we found which is no fault of the owners is that all the houses around the villa have dogs. In the middle of the night if one starts barking then it’s like a dog chorus. We had to shut all the windows which is a shame but that cuts out 80% of the noise. Just be aware (We are both dog owners ourselves so realise that these things happen) but if you had children it might keep them awake. We have never stayed in a villa before and now we can’t go back to anything else. It’s a fantastic house, Quiet central location, Pool is lovely, House is very cool temperature wise. An amazing holiday. And thank you Karla for looking after us and greeting us. Highly recommended
