Make a holiday apartment in Puerto de la Cruz your home away from home

Holiday homes in Puerto de la Cruz are primed for family getaways. The location is superb, next to one of Tenerife’s top resorts. Here there are magical beaches, exciting family attractions and golf courses to enjoy. The nature here is glorious too—there are volcanic landforms, sweeping valleys dotted with banana plantations, as well as the awe-inspiring peak of El Teide in the distance.

Almost all holiday apartments in Puerto de la Cruz offer access to a pool but are also within a few minutes of the ocean and several beaches, which gives guests plenty of flexibility when relaxation is the order of the day. Interiors are neatly appointed, with smart appliances like wi-fi and satellite TV provided. Most rentals have two bedrooms, which are ideal for new families. To broaden the search, the nearby resort of La Orotava also has plenty of holiday rentals.

Things to do

-Beaches: There are six beaches at Puerto de la Cruz, ranging in character and appearance. There’s a small one at the harbour in the heart of the town, and here the waters are remarkably calm. Martíanez is a gorgeous volcanic bay, with lively waters favoured by surfers. Playa Jardín is perhaps the most picturesque beach—it is lined with palm trees and has a large curve of dark sand where there are all the services and facilities required for a perfect day at the beach.

-Natural sights: Puerto de la Cruz is within the Orotava Valley, which is a stunning natural park full of ravines, cliffs, gullies and vibrant greenery. El Teide is almost always visible in the distance. This 3,718-metre-high volcano is the tallest landform in the whole of Spain. Visitors can take a cable car up most of the way to the top, and from there either scale the peak or take in the views from scenic lookouts.

-Golf: There are three courses on the northern side of Tenerife. The nearest is La Rosaleda, which is a nine-hole par 27 with gorgeous views of El Teide and the Orotava Valley. It’s ideal for newcomers or experienced players who want to work on their short game. Just over half an hour to the west of Puerto de la Cruz is Buenavista Golf, designed by Seve Ballesteros, while northeast is the prestigious Real Club de Golf de Tenerife.

-Cuisine: For those interested in sampling Tenerife’s cuisine, guachinches are the restaurants to visit, serving indigenous fare. Among the many dishes to try are fish casseroles and vegetable soups and stews. Salmorejo meanwhile is rabbit marinated in paprika, garlic and chilli, and then grilled. Another way to get to know Tenerife’s culture is to arrive in time for the Carnival in February, and stay at a holiday rental in Santa Cruz, the island’s capital.

-Family attractions: One of Tenerife’s most popular days out can be found in Puerto de la Cruz. Loro Parque is a zoo, originally oriented towards parrots and birdlife, but now containing a host of other animal species including gorillas, jaguars, giant tortoises, otters and alligators, while there are also demonstrations involving seals, dolphins and orcas.

Weather in Puerto de la Cruz

Weather conditions on Tenerife are springlike throughout the year. This is due to the island’s position, not far north of the Tropic of Cancer, and in line with winds that blow from North Africa and across the Atlantic from the Caribbean. Puerto de la Cruz holiday apartments are on Tenerife’s northern coast, which is known for being lusher than other parts of the island due to increased rainfall. Almost all of this rain occurs in the winter, between November and March. Daily temperatures at this time of year peak at 18?C, while the rest of the year gets consistent highs that hover around 23?C.

Travel to Puerto de la Cruz

The closest airport to Puerto de la Cruz holiday homes is Tenerife North (TFN), which is 20 minutes away and has links to mainland Spain and other European destinations. Holidaymakers from the UK will need to use Tenerife South (TFS), which is about 90 kilometres away on the south side of the island. This airport has a host of flight connections to the UK, generally with low-cost airlines. Use of a car is recommended—the drive to Puerto de la Cruz from Tenerife South will take around an hour on the TF-1 and TF-5 roads.

It doesn't detract from the property which is perfectly suited to walking into town (about 25 mins nice and slow - all downhill) (30 mins back uphill, but by then a glass or two of wine helps) The pool man came twice during our week there which gives confidence in the cleanliness of the pool (Freeeezing!!) The two sun-loungers were well used by us. The garden catches the sun perfectly. Karla welcomed us there and showed us around. There are plentiful clean towels but we would recommend taking basic supplies to the house as there are none on arrival. (Karla - the music centre was not working and this would make a nice addition to the facilities on offer.)

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We booked this finca after having been let down by another location booked on booking.com in the south of Tenerife (El Medano). Boy are glad the other guy double booked. This is set in the most gorgeous grounds which have been beautifully tended with a view of El Teide (on a clear day), the foothills, a nd rolling farmland down to the coast at Puerto Cruz. It has a (slightly) heated pool in a lovely sunny lawn, a tennis court, a gazebo overlooking the sea view for sundowners, laundry room, citrus trees, parrot in a cage, lots of cats (they don't bother you) and even a private chapel on the grounds. There seem to be about five units ranging from one to four bed. We stayed in the three bed one which had a lovely secluded terrace, three spacious rooms, two bathrooms, one between two of the bedrooms with a door off each and the other ensuite to the third room. The dining/sitting room was spacious but a bit dark - we didn't use it at all preferring to eat on the terrace or in the kitchen but for a larger group and/or in really hot weather it would be handy. The staff are lovely with cleaning six days a week. We had a car but didn't use it in the evening. There are a number of restaurants a short walk away and if you are fit a 15minute uphill walk takes you to the heart of La Orotava (but beware on a Sunday night there are almost no restaurants open there). Other night we caught the 350 bus to Puerto Cruz takes about 20mins - operating every 30 minutes till well after midnight - €1.45 each and either the bus home or a taxi for €10. Very close to the motorway but we couldn't hear any traffic although an American couple staying in another unit did mention hearing some. The grounds are full of little nooks and crannies to read quietly or just enjoy the sun or watch the goat herds. Oh yes and there's a sauna which we only discovered late in our stay. I think we may be back here.

It has fine views over the town and Mt Teide. It was spotless and well equipped. The kitchen in particular had absolutely everything you need to self-cater. The living room was comfortable and has a modern HD TV and DVD player. The two of us were very happy there. There is only one small dining table which is only suitable for 2/3 people. There is no Wi-Fi which for me that was bliss! I would recommend it for a couple or small family who want to chill out.
