Make a holiday apartment in Santa Cruz your home away from home

Set in Tenerife’s capital, holiday homes in Santa Cruz are ideal for people who want to combine the culture and sightseeing of a city getaway with the relaxation of a beach holiday. The natural scenery all around Tenerife is breathtaking, and in this corner of the island guests can make for the Aranaga Mountain range for walking trips or head to the north coast to visit wild Atlantic beaches.

As befits urban accommodation holiday apartments in Santa Cruz are appointed with the appliances and connectivity to make a self-catering holiday as convenient as possible. These spacious and modern rentals will suit families and are located close to the sea. Guests can share holiday snaps via wi-fi access, or, when it’s time to take it easy, take advantage of the home entertainment provided.

Things to do

-Beaches: Santa Cruz is next to one of the best beaches on the entire island. Palm-lined Playa de las Teresitas is a golden sandy bay next to the rugged hills of the Anaga Range. The ocean here is calm and almost perfectly clear, which makes it the perfect spot for a family beach trip. The facilities are great too, and there’s always something going on, be it volleyball matches or yoga classes.

-Sightseeing: A few minutes inland from Santa Cruz is the beautiful renaissance city of San Cristóbal de la Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with lots of neatly preserved buildings from the 16th century, and a city layout that would be replicated at countless colonial settlements in the Americas. HomeAway has a selection of holiday rentals in this city. Santa Cruz also has a number of modern landmarks, like the spectacular opera house, the Torres de Santa Cruz skyscrapers and the bustling Plaza de España.

-Nature: Tenerife is famed for its volcanic landscapes, and nowhere are they more dramatic than in the El Teide National Park, home to the eponymous stratovolcano, which at 3,718 metres is the tallest peak in all of Spain. Closer to Santa Cruz is the Aranaga Range, which takes up all of the northeast coast. Here there are mountains 1,000 metres in height and precipitous ravines to explore.

-Days out: With a car no part of Tenerife’s coastline is off limits. Guests could make their way down to the east coast to visit the modern beach resorts at Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas. For a totally different experience, visit the north, which is loved for its picturesque old towns like Garachico and La Olavata, as well as the rural character of its landscapes that are home to vineyards, and banana and avocado plantations.

-Carnival: Tenerife’s carnival is held here in February every year. It’s one of the world’s largest street parties and only behind Rio de Janeiro’s carnival in terms of size and renown. It’s a glitzy, week-long flurry of parades, traditional music performances, historic cultural rituals like the Burial of the Sardine and contests to pick the best performers.

Weather in Santa Cruz

Set on the eastern side of northern Tenerife, Santa Cruz benefits from the subtropical-semi-arid climate shared by the southern portions of the island. Whenever guests arrive at a Santa Cruz apartment there should be springlike conditions outside. Temperatures peak in the low or mid-20s throughout the year, with only a small difference between summer and winter weather. From November to March the weather is a little cooler and a little damper, with highs of 21?C. Summers get maximum temperatures of 27?C here.

Travel to Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is served by Tenerife North Airport (TFN). This is the main way onto the island for guests arriving from mainland Spain or France. Holidaymakers coming to a Santa Cruz apartment from the UK will use Tenerife South (TFS), which has a wealth of connections to cities across the country via charter and low-cost carriers. It’s an advantage to have use of a car here, as the airport is about 40 minutes by road from Santa Cruz. The drive is an easy one though, following the TF-1 for the entirety.

The area was very peaceful and the garden and pool were lovely to wake up to every day, with the view of Teide from our bedroom. The owner visited each day to switch on the jacuzzi in the afternoon, so it was easy to speak to her about anything we might need to know (she only had a little English and I only have a little Spanish, but we managed!) The house has two bedrooms, a small but very clean and nicely decorated bathroom and a large living room. The kitchen had everything we needed. The entire place was spotlessly clean and there was a TV, books and magazines, though we spent most of our time outside! The pool is unheated, but that doesn't matter in Tenerife, it's so hot you'll need to cool off! There wasn't a BBQ with our apartment, but the other apartment did have one. We didn't mind too much. There was a fantastic jacuzzi which we really enjoyed, and a sauna which we couldn't quite get hot enough, but again, this is Tenerife, you'll be plenty hot enough outside anyway. There are sunloungers provided and a litt e screened off area with patio table and chairs, where we had lunch every day and the inquisitive little lizards liked to watch us in case we dropped any scraps (tip: they really like ham!) You will need a car in the North of the island, but that's the price you pay for being in such a nice peaceful area. there is a Lidl about 10 minutes drive away where we did all our shopping. We'd definitely return here, it's a lovely place.

It is situated on lovely grounds with a distant sea view, surrounded by avocado trees and many other types of flowers and shrubs which attract many birds with the most gorgeous song, especially in the mornings. The tranquility was delightful and we were fortunate to have lovely weather during our stay. Susana is a most sincere and relaxed owner, who has thought of everything in the property to make your stay comfortable. The property was immaculately clean and well equipped, the bedding very comfortable, and the WiFi was fast and efficient, which was a real bonus. Would highly recommend staying here.
