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.

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.

                                                                  5 of 5
                                                                  We were greeted and settled by the property owner's mother, and settled right in. I was even given a lift to a local shop to buy basics before going on a proper trip the next day. The villa itself is very comfortable, easily accommodating 6 with enough space to allow everybody to do their own things. The television was left with clear instructions for use, though there is so much to do and see within a 20 minute walk that we didn't spend much time sat around inside! Though we had cloudy weather, it was still hot, making the pool a welcome luxury. With enough sunbeds for everybody, the patio was where we spent the majority of our time when at the villa, even when eating together. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and spacious enough to be shared by adults with large bags. The en-suites are also great, and kept clean. The showers take a little while to warm up, but honestly that wasn't a problem in the Spanish heat! With so much to explore on the north of the island (Loro Parque, and several black sand beaches to name a couple), and plenty of different places to eat various cuisines (thai, pizzerias, paella, sandwich cafés, and an incredible steakhouse), you'd really be missing out if you didn't stay here; the villa is perfect, with great views and good access to all your wants and needs (we didn't rent a car and managed to fill our days with activities no further than 30 minutes walk away).

This lovely house and gardens surpassed all previous locations and rentals by a long way !!! As soon as you drive through the front gate you are met by a wonderful array of trees and flowers which puts you into relaxed holiday mode immediately . The gardens are wonderful for the kids to run around and swim in the big climate controlled swimming pool whilst you cook up a storm in fully equipped outside BBQ area that comes with a fridge to keep all your drinks ice cold . The house is spacious and well equipped with plenty of bathrooms and comfy beds overlooking lovely green trees and fruit trees making for a fantastic nights sleep every night . The Kitchen was large and fully equipped although we did a great deal of cooking outside as the weather was sunny and pool difficult to get out of . If you feel like relaxing indoors the lounge dining area is large and comfy . All in all the house and our fantastic host Desmond made for a memorable stay indeed and will be back next year . Thanks
