Truly idyllic - quite the best villa we have ever stayed in. The garden & pool are spectacular and extremely well maintained and the villa itself is more like borrowing a beautiful home for the week rather than a rental. Desmond was a welcoming host and lives nearby should you need anything.

Will be recommending to family & friends.

Oasis Of Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

My wife being from Tenerife has afforded me the privilege to travel to the island on many occasions , over the years we have stayed at and Rented accommodation in all areas of Tenerife . This lovely house and gardens surpassed all previous locations and rentals by a long way !!!

As soon as you drive through the front gate you are met by a wonderful array of trees and flowers which puts you into relaxed holiday mode immediately . The gardens are wonderful for the kids to run around and swim in the big climate controlled swimming pool whilst you cook up a storm in fully equipped outside BBQ area that comes with a fridge to keep all your drinks ice cold .

The house is spacious and well equipped with plenty of bathrooms and comfy beds overlooking lovely green trees and fruit trees making for a fantastic nights sleep every night . The Kitchen was large and fully equipped although we did a great deal of cooking outside as the weather was sunny and pool difficult to get out of . If you feel like relaxing indoors the lounge dining area is large and comfy .

All in all the house and our fantastic host Desmond made for a memorable stay indeed and will be back next year . Thanks

Just Lovely

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely and very relaxing,the pool area and BBQ are simply brilliant.Lots of space and so quiet .Very clean and kitchen well stocked with pans ect.

Orotava is a must its one of the nicest towns i have visited. Desmond and Tere are lovely hosts and nothing is too much trouble.I don't go back to the same place on holiday ,but this may be an exception.

A wonderful haven in Tenerife

  • 5 of 5

To echo all the other reviews posted the villa and gardens are simply wonderful. It is a peaceful haven, quite literally off the beaten track. We woke to the sound of the canaries in the aviary which was very special. If you're looking for privacy, space and a beautiful villa inside and out look no further. The villa had everything we needed. We stayed the first week in November, were very lucky with the weather and so made full use of the lovely private pool.

Desmond is a great host and did everything he could before our stay, by helping us with our enquiries. There was also a very helpful brochure that he had put together about the villa, Tenerife, the surrounding area and recommended restaurants etc. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough and hope to return one day.

So good we went there twice (and we'll go again!)

  • 5 of 5

There is really little to add to all the other 5 star reviews. We (two 'mature' couples) stayed at Villa Jardin Botanica in November 2014 - but we had really bad weather so we were not able to make full use of all the excellent facilities. However, we could appreciate how beautiful the villa was - prefect location (at the end of half a kilometre of track!), spacious, well appointed, lovely garden, excellent pool etc etc, so despite the awful weather, we decided to book again in the hope of a better time - so we booked again for April 2015 and were rewarded with pretty well wall to wall sunshine.

A highlight has to be the superb, and heated, swimming pool - we were in almost every day and sometimes twice a day. Particular thanks to Desmond for providing a high and more comfortable easy chair for one of our number who found the rather chic sofas and chairs rather too low!

The garden is a joy, with palms and plants from all over the world, plus a good collection of indiginous flora and a number of productive trees, citrus, avocado, guavas included.

Our small party have travelled on holiday together for 8 or more years and we have never contemplated going back to the same place again - but we've now booked for next year as well. One caveat - I share with the last reviewer the slight concern that the villa will become even more popular and we may have trouble getting a booking!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from staying two weeks at this beautiful villa with my husband and family. Often you read about a place and build a picture in your mind of how its going to be and so often expectations are disappointing, this was the opposite.

Firstly thanks to Desmond and his wife the property owners who took care of our booking and my many questions. They were extremely helpful and kind.

The location of this villa could not be more idyllic nestled in its own exquisite and pristine gardens. The backdrop from the rear of the villa overlooking Mount Teide in the distance was utterly breathtaking.

The villa itself was tastefully decorated and had a real family feel to it. A lot of heart has gone into this property.

The pool was gorgeous and in constant use, large enough for the 6 of us to have plenty of fun! The barbecue area was amazing and perfect for those nights in sat around the veranda or pool.

The property is clean and well maintained all appliances, showers working as they should. With a family of six and two boisterous little children we had acres of space in bedrooms and living areas.

The villa is situated in such a position as to be a great centre to go on so many fantastic trips and to visit tourist attractions without being in a touristy area. A car is definitely needed.

I hesitate to say as I would like to keep this villa a secret to myself, It is utterly charming and in a perfect location.

We never go back to the same place twice but we have already started thinking about returning next year as I cannot recommend this place highly enough. A piece of our hearts remains at this villa....Thank you to Desmond and Sandra for the perfect holiday and for sharing your beautiful home.
