Situated on an extremely quiet part of Las Galletas, this property has a large heated pool and paddle court in the middle of a old banana plantation that has been there for more than 100 years. The star of the property is the 'really heated' swimming pool which is ideal for swimming, as its size is 13 m x 5 m. There is also a jacuzzi and a little space for fitness activities. Wi-fi. Near the pool area there is a large reading room with comfortable sofas. There is also a paddle court and barbeque area. Each house has a solárium on the roof, with sunbeds, also a private front terrace with outdoor furniture and a back terrace with views to the banana plantations. The finca offers 6 one bedroom houses + 6 two bedroom houses + 1 three bedroom house. It is located within walking distance to some local restaurants, supermarket, bakery and Taxi-bus stop.

About Ana B. Reid
My name is Ana B. Reid, although my second surname is English, I am totally Spanish!. I am a Tenerife resident and I studied Business Administration at ULL University. Apart from that, I have the following TOURIST LICENSE NUMBER: I-0002152.1 All my clients receive complete tourist information, a bit different of the typical one, about hidden beaches, local markets, recommended restaurants, events, ect.
Ana B. Reid purchased this House in 1999
Why Ana B. Reid chose Arona
I recommend this finca as it is a totally different accommodation concept on the Canary Islands. Being in the middle of the banana plantation offers a quiet atmosphere with all the local taste. The pool is absolutely wonderful and there is such an amount of vegetation around the terraces that there is enough privacy on each house. The situation is also an advantage: away from the massive tourist zones but close enough to enjoy the coastal temperatures and excellent communications everywhere.
What makes this House unique
Having a Real Heated pool is an advantage on Winter, as you might have 21ºC but it is great to enjoy the large pool to swim. The finca is enormous and gives you the advantage of follow the route inside to see how a banana plantation works. Obviously, being only 3 km of the coast gives you the chance to visit the beach on any moment and specially its sea avenues with its fresh fish restaurants where the locals go, away from the crowded tourist places. We can provide all the information you require about this.

Wonderful peace and tranquility close to many attractions and busier towns
We stayed here in the 2 bed apartment for a week in June with our 4 year and loved it. It's only a 10 minute drive from the airport (there isn't any noise from the aircraft though) and because it's in an enclosed gated area embedded within a banana plantation you feel secure and like you're far away from the huge hotels and overcrowded towns. The apartments are spacious and offer plenty of necessities. The outdoor area in front of the apartments are lovely eating outside and the sun terrace on the top is a sun trap with it's loungers. There isn't any air con but to be honest we didn't need it. The ceiling fans in the rooms were quiet enough to be left on overnight (if needed) and provided a sufficient cooling effect that we were very comfortable. The showers were very powerful (no baths) but our daughter loves showers so this worked perfectly for us. The pool is lovely. It can be a bit chilly if it's windy and overcast but no more so than any of the other pools/the sea. We hired a car which made getting around easy. Aqualand/Siam Park & Mall/Los Cristianos and many others were all within 10-15 minutes in the car so very close and easy to get to. The supermarket was great and is also approx 5 to 10 minutes in the car so also close. We arrived on Sunday and the supermarket was closed so it's worth checking if they're going to be open when you arrive otherwise there are small coroner shops that are very close (3 minute walk) which sell the bare essentials until you can get to the supermarkets. We tended to eat during our days trips so I can't vouch for any of the local restaurants but we did thoroughly enjoy our stay. We didn't notice much or any noise from neighbours although I think it was a bit quieter when we were there and not all apartments were in use. Overall a great time and would happily recommend it.
Thank you so much for your 5* Review!. I am very grateful for your nice comments. I think all your comments about the houses are very useful for future guests, so I will recommend them to read it. It is our responsability that our guests have a peaceful stay, so thank you very much!
Relaxing, quiet location with good facilities
The accommodation sits in the middle of a banana plantation so it's very quiet. The pool area is well kept, although doesn't get a huge amount if sun. However the rooftop sun terrace offers plenty of sun as well as shelter from the wind if its blowy. The villa us well equipped and had all we need. The site also has a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer which is very useful.
Some good local restaurants- we ate at the Mexican down the road twice and if you want good sea food then Los abrigos is just down the road.
All in all a very relaxing break.
Thank you for your nice review! I am glad you found the houses well equipped and comfortable, and you enjoyed the restaurants at the área. In January you can get sunshine only on the middle hours of the day, but of course it is the very Winter here (even if you can sunbabath and swim, it gets dark at 18:00 hrs). Yes, that mexican close to the finca you visited twice is quite famous....
An oasis of peace and calm.
This little group of villas is set in aworking banana plantation in a local village,so no sophisticated bars or restaurants. I suppose you really need a car,but we managed very well using the buses.You can download an ap which tells you when the next bus is due! Another plus are the free bananas.
Lovely relaxing spot
Spacious houses in beautifully maintained surroundings. Good facilities and a great alternative to a busy resort. The pool area was lovely with one downside. I chose this complex for our winter break due to the 'really heated pool' so I was disappointed that it was cooler than I expected.
Thank you very much! I am happy to know that you had a nice time, yes the property is very well maintained. Well, hotels here have pools heated up to 24ºC (that is what the autorities suggest due to to sanitary conditions) but being a small resort, here we have 27ºC which is a high temperature for Winter time. Outdoor pools never get the temperatures of the indoor pools, but you are right, we should specificy 27ºC on the property description. Anyway I am glad that you enjoyed the pool area! All the best
Paradise in the sun
Beautiful surroundings , helpful staff, a car a must have . Peaceful and relaxing with the scenery to match would stay here again . Hyper Dino up the road cheaper than local supermarkets easy to get to main resorts just a ten minute ride. To los christianos .
Thank you very much for your review! Lovely to know that you would like to stay here again. All the best from Tenerife!
Lovely, clean and well maintained place
Nubi was very kind and helpful. The pool was great and our little girl loved it. The Rancho de Nino and El Cordero restaurants are close by and good places to eat. We had a car so we had no problems getting around, we found a good Hyperdino supermarket about a 7 min drive away and that was where we shopped. We would have no reservations about coming here again in the future.
Quiet village with some bars, restaurants, supermarket surrounded by quiet banana plantations, but with excellent comunications to everywhere (the beach in Las Galletas, Los Cristianos village and the way to Santa Cruz)
