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 2006
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. And our unique concierge service
My wife and I usually stay off the beaten path when we travel. So when I came across this property at Alberto Dorner, the pics and reviews made it a clear front runner in our choices. Although we weren't able to secure the pool property, the basic two bedroom we had was perfect! There's so much to experience all over Tenerife! The time we did spend in the room was beyond pleasant and comfortable. The views of Teide and the western coast towards Masca, the modernization of the property, the bed was Uber comfortable... Plenty of space, complementary wine and spirits, we're all welcomed benefits. We cooked also. The WiFi works well, although at times we had to reset the modem a couple times. Which just required a push of the button on top twice. Carlos was excellent in getting us settled in. He was always available when we needed him via WhatsApp. You will not disappointed staying here.
Overall a nice experience....brilliant place to visit....worth a stay
Last minute break but discovered lovely, clean apartment with beautiful views on the coast and volcano. The local town of Garachico is lovely and provides an insight into local life on the island. Great location, close to the most amazing mountain walks and scenery, far from the busy beach resorts of Tenerife.
A fantastic, well laid out apartment with everything you need for a relaxed and stress free holiday in the sun.
Spotlessly clean & nice to find a welcome basket of essentials after what felt like a long day travelling.
Carlos was very friendly and accommodating - delayed flight meant we arrived later than initially advised but no problem.
We'd recommend anyone to book this apartment, whether you just like to sit on a beach in the sun (San Marcos beach 5min drive) or a great base for exploring the island like we did, you won't be disappointed.
Super choice of restaurants close by, El Mortero in Icod was fab but our favourite meal on our last night was at Garachico, a 10min drive along the coast - Canada de Garachico Espacio Gastronomico - if we had found it earlier in the week we'd have re-visited to sample other dishes from the menu!
2 points to note that will hopefully be helpful -
~ make sure you unwind the sun canopy over the balcony in the morning!
~ we found hot water took a fair while to arrive in the shower & didn't last long enough for 2 people to shower consecutively.
We found Tenerife's road signage not to be the best - on the main arterial roads (e.g TF5) the signs are literally metres from exit slip road so don't give you time to get into the inside lane - we sailed straight past a few during our week out & about exploring.
Location très bien située pour visiter toute l'île. C'est comme sur les photos, et même mieux!
Villa on a hillside at Playa San Marcos in Icod de los vinos (Tenerife). Spacious terrace with breathtaking views overlooking the whole lush north coast of the island. AD - San Marcos is located in a quiet residential area with only 6 villas. The beach is just 5 minutes down the road, where you find Tapas, local food and drinks at beach restaurants.
Icod de los vinos is well known for its vines, its historical, colonial town center and for its amazing surroundings.
The Teide national park is just 20 min away from Villa Costa Azul and is perfect for all levels of hiking with its unique flora and topography. Other day-excursions for hiking are the humid and lush laurisilva forest in Anaga or the dry, coastal Teno park. Further excursions on the island include the capital Santa Cruz (shopping), La Laguna (Unesco world heritage center) or the nearby historic town of La Orotava.
