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.
My friend and I stayed in the Junior apartment 3-13 march 2017 and it was perfect. The location is breathtaking with Teide on one side and the ocean on the other. In between are banana plantations, flowers and cactuses which all make up quite a scenery. The place was clean, bright and spacious and have everything you need and the some. The host could'nt have been nicer and more helpful.
Renting a car is a good idea, however it is quite possible to get along without one - bus lines are good, taxis cheap and walking is beatiful and good exercise.
I highly recommend it to families, couples and everyone in between :-)
Situation - about 20 mins walk down the road to San Marcos beach which has a couple of nice restaurants, a couple of bars, a pharmacy and a supermarket. Alternatively it is a 3 minute zip down the road in the car. San Marcos is small with black sand beach but is very pleasant and chilled when we were there although it probably gets busier in season and at the weekends when locals will go. The flat is awkward to find first time and the details need improving from the management. I would suggest coming off the T5 for the Playa San Marcos and the the turning is the second right.
Another area of improvement is information available in the flat, there wasn't much. Icod probably has more to offer than we found ( all we did was the area around the Drago Tree) . Garachio is a real gem and well worth a visit or two to stroll around and try out some of the good looking restaurants. Also worth a drive along to Ponto Teno as long as you don't mind the sheer drops. The weather on the Icod side of the island (in March) is cloudier than elsewhere so a trip to Los Gigantes is worth it chase down the sun (1 hour 10 mins with hair pins non-stop). One amazing outing is the Cueva del Viento, the lava tube which needs booking online first to assure a place.
Lovely views from the apartment of both Mount Teide and the sea.
Elena and Carlos do a great job in organising and welcoming. I would definitely go back if the weather can be improved!
Unsere Wohnung (Junior Suite) war sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber, hell und modern gestaltet.
Wir können diesen Vermieter bzw. diese Anlage gerne weiterempfehlen.
Zu, Empfang gab es frisches Obst und sogar eine Flasche Wein.
Im Ort oder auch unten am Strand gibt es sehr gute und günstige Restaurants.
Kleine Wermutstopfen: Enge Garageneinfahrt und Restaurants sind zu Fuß nur auf teilweise unbeleuchteter Strasse zu erreichen.
Die Bilder entsprechen der Realität. Wir fühlten uns sehr wohl. Es fehlte an nichts. Durch die regelmäßige Anwesenheit der Eigentümer oder des "Hausmeisters" bekam der Aufenthalt auch eine persönliche Note. Rundum zufrieden.
Super Lage, sehr saubere Zimmer, schöne Einrichtung. Morgens auf dem Balkon im Sonnenaufgang gefrühstückt und abends die letzten Sonnenstrahlen bei einem Glas Wein und Meerblick ausklingen lassen.
Uns hat es sehr gefallen, sollten wir Teneriffa nochmals besuchen, werden wir mit Sicherheit wieder kommen.
Supertolles, sauberes und gemütliches Apartment! Die Aussicht ist traumhaft schön und die Gegend bzw. Ortschaft ist ruhig und wundervoll. Die Vermieter sind supernett und helfen bei jeder Angelegenheit. Das Apartment ist sehr empfehlenswert!
