|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
Apartment type "Superior" are two aprox. 85m2, modern apartments with private pool and stunning views. Each apt. includes two bedrooms with ensuite bathroom each. Each apartment has very large outdoor spaces to sit at the pool, have breakfast or lounge on the terrace. When you go up the stairs to your villa-apartment you immediately start to feel the island: its light, the ocean breeze, the view, the volcano, the quietness.
This apartment type was just finished in January 2015 and since it is our most demanded apartment type. Some of our guests spend their vacation relaxing at the private swimming pool, only leaving the Villas San Marcos if strictly necessary. Others take a swim in the morning, explore the island during the day and come back in the afternoon for a well deserved rest at the pool. Which type of traveler are you?
Elegant, luxurious apartments with stunning views of Tenerife's coast and volcano in exclusive, upscale villas. Away from touristic areas, located in a quiet, residential neighborhood with just a few villas. Yet, close to the beach (5 minutes drive) and to the colonial center of the beautiful town Icod de los vinos.

Born in Germany, raised in Canary Islands, went to college in Barcelona, Cologne and Bonn, lived the last 10 years in Chicago. Now, I'm back to Canary Islands, to the breeze at the beach, hiking the mountains, boating to hidden beaches.
I enjoy meeting new people, showing my friends and guests the island, taking them to places they would never find by themselves. My goal is to have the most beautiful apartments on the island; my philosophy is that our guests are travelers, not tourists; my motto is *authentic, individual, exclusive*
Kay Gonzalez purchased this apartment in 2010
Our goal at Alberto Dorner properties is to help our guests experience the local cultures, lifestyles and environments: climb the volcano, hike the hidden path, taste the secret wines in small wineries, have authentic island meals in that back patio in the mountains that only locals know about, chat with islanders and find out about their lives. We want our guests to discover Tenerife in a relaxed, safe, adventurous atmosphere.
community: We are part of the local community and want to give back. We hire local staff, work with local contractors and businesses and shop locally. We want to preserve the community and help improve people’s lives. We promote sustainable tourism, with fewer guests but more involved, interested in land and people, respectful with local traditions and culture.
environment: Our properties are located on the north side of the island, an area with amazing nature, ranging from rainforests in the Anaga mountains to the desert in the Teno nature preserve, from the lava fields on the Teide crater to the volcanic beaches and basalt cliffs on the ocean. We are committed to preserve our environment for future generations, using environment friendly cleaning products and amenities and trying to have a low impact.
guest: Why we started the Alberto Dorner adventure in the first place. We truly enjoy sharing our love for the island and its people with our guests. We work hard to make our guest’s stay a memorable, authentic experience. We always strive for the highest quality in everything we do, to be friendly, available, helpful and genuinely interested in the guests and their well-being.
The stunning views, the quietness, the elegant, bright, crisp apartments. Our concierge service.
The manager greeted us and was delightful during our whole stay. He helped us with our bags and was always available for anything we needed. There was a nice welcome pack, with wine and breakfast fares. The Nespresso machine was a nice surprise. We received suggestions for restaurants and excursions. We felt pampered.
There are a couple flights of stairs up to the place, so you are above the neighboring houses. The layout of the apartment is great. The living room is large and comfortable, with windows on two sides looking out over the countryside and ocean. There are a covered terrace, a surprisingly large and beautiful garden and a private swimming pool. Being high up, it is all quite private, even being close to the other apartments. Thought went into the details. For example, instead of leaving a blank wall behind the house, it is lined with flower beds, which was quite nice. The kitchen is well equipped and all the basics are there (salt, pepper, paper towels, trash bags, ...).
Two bedrooms and two baths make it perfect for a family or two couples. The beds and linen are not quite up to the standard of the rest of the place but are OK.
The apartment is on the north coast, close to charming towns and incredible sights, away from the touristy beaches of the south.
Wir hatten App. G gemietet. Eine super ausgestattete, sehr luxuriöse Ferienwohnung in einer modernen und schönen Anlage. Der eigene Pool und die verschiedenen Terrassen und Sitzgelegenheiten waren unser persönliches Highlight. Frühstück und Abendessen mit Blick bis an die Nordspitze und aufs Wasser - einfach unbeschreiblich. In der Wohnung war alles vorhanden, was man benötigt. Der Service vorab und auch durch Carlos vor Ort war 1A. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Wir waren bereits zum 3. mal in dieser modernen, mit allen erdenklichen Annehmlichkeiten ausgestatteten Ferienwohnung. Immer wieder absolut überwältigend ist der fantastische Ausblick. Man findet alles so vor, wie es beschrieben ist. Wir können die Wohnung nur weiterempfehlen, und werden bestimmt noch einmal wiederkommen.
