Garachico is a picturesque village situated to the north of Playa de la Arena, approximately 40 minutes drive away. The village was the victim of a violent lava flow from the volcanoes on the island in 1706. This created lava rock pools which are one of the main attractions of the village. Garachico is also home to the Church of Santa Ana and the former Convent of San Francisco. The church had to be rebuilt after the damage caused during the volcanic eruption. The convent is a beautiful example of Canarian architecture with stunning wooden balconies. The convent also houses a small museum.

Everything was clean and well kept, the location is far enough away from the touristy part of the island so that it remained relatively quiet, and everything was relatively close by. As a general rule, if you are vacationing in Tenerife, I would HIGHLY encourage you to rent a car, as it is the most efficient means of traveling. The supermarket/restaurants/etc were maybe a 4-5 euro taxi ride one way, but a car allows you to explore more (and the apartment had free, accessible parking as well). The apartment is only on the 2nd floor, so the views aren't stunning, but they are quite lovely, especially if you go up the complex to the pool on the 7th floor. I would highly recommend staying at this apartment as it really had everything we needed. Cristina and Marcio were very welcoming and helpful in telling us everything that we needed to know. They even had a book with maps, emergency numbers, and useful information for our stay in Tenerife! 5 stars for this property, and we would definitely come back!!

Cleaner needs a bit of encouragement too, spent a couple of hours cleaning when we arrived. Great complex with good pool area and restaurants near by. 20 min walk to seafront, 30 min walk back as it's up a very steep hill. Not suitable for elderly or inform on foot.
