VILLA WITH LARGE, YEAR-ROUND HEATED SWIMMING POOL

Icod de los Vinos City Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self catering villa, exclusively for your holiday (2 to 10+ guests)

This private self-catering villa is located on a south-facing cliff and has the best views of Mount Teide and Atlantic Ocean, Lighthouse (N/W corner Tenerife), new harbour / marina in Garachico and its small island.

The property lies 112m above sea level and 3 minutes away from the street near the historical wine city Icod de los Vinos. The holiday home was built in 1980s by an architect and the owners at that time period were concerned in getting the original concept. Ideal for large families, joint families, a perfect basis for Buenavista Golf, or simply explore the romantic Tenerife for a relaxing holiday. In San Marcos beach approximately 1 km away, there are several restaurants and this small sandy bay can be used during anytime of the year

Features: You can discover many places within a small radius, such as: Icod de los Vinos, just about 2 km away, is surrounded by vineyards and banana trees. The biggest attraction is the 1000-year old, mighty dragon tree 'Drago milenario'. It is found in 'Parque del Drago'. Here you can get a very good impression of the Canarian vegetation. The woody mountains on top of Icod laid with hiking trails invite you for hiking tours or even just for a walk. In the small town of Garachico (about 5 km away) you can visit the historical city centre with its beautiful fortress.

Nearby cities: You can experience the vibrant life in the old harbour city Puerto de la Cruz (approx. 20 km away). The old town is pure history, with a lot of shops and restaurants. The famous Orotava valley (that Humbolt has described before) is about 25 km away. In the old town of Orotava you can admire the beautiful, wooden-carved balconies.

Landscapes: Through Orotava valley you can also drive to Teide, the highest mountain in Spain (3718 m). Here on top in 'crater' (about 16 km in diameter, approx 2200 m high) you will be thrilled to see a really fantastic landscape. With the cable car you can 'glide' up to about 3550 m and from here enjoy the fantastic view from atop. After registering you can also climb up the peak. If you are good at walking, you should definitely hike in the Teno 'Masca' gorge (about 30 km away). You can explore a breathtaking landscape in approximately 3 to 4 hours.

Perfect for a family holiday or special celebratio

  • 5 of 5
This property is in a spectacular location, high on a hillside looking down to the sea, and in the other direction to the mountains. It was tastefully furnished, clean, well equipped and maintained to a high standard. Facilities included beautiful heated swimming pool, a games room, barbecue areas, televisions, hi-fi, wi-fi, VCR, DVD, and CD players. It is essential for visitors to have a car on site because the road to local shop and restaurants is very steep. Pleasant beachside restaurants nearby, but smarter restaurants within an easy drive away. The Island's top tourist attractions of Loro Parque and Mount Teide are easily accessible by car.
Three generations of my family had a thoroughly enjoyable family holiday together and I would certainly recommend this villa in the highest terms.

Superb Villa-pool & amenties in a stunning setting

Superb Villa-pool & amenties in a stunning setting
  • 5 of 5
We’ve just reluctantly returned from a most fabulous holiday in this beautiful villa.
Having read this review my husband says it sounds like an estate agents description (!) but agrees that I’ve not exaggerated and the following is just as it was:
A clever architect’s exceptional design maximizes the glorious views all around the villa and the many terraces capture the sun throughout the day, while little gardens also combine both complete privacy and stunning views. The generous sized pool provides a lovely view too and total privacy. Though it was January we swam every day.
The many rooms, which were immaculately clean, were high and big. The kitchen is excellently equipped (as is the widescreen TV and sound system room for those who want that.) If it were to rain a lovely large L shaped terrace (with pool table, bar area and cooking facilities) is windowed in all the way round and also overlooks the pool. There can’t be many villas that can sleep ten people yet easily disperse them during the day in so many recreational areas.
The owner clearly once made the villa his one-time home and was helpful and friendly in all arrangements for our stay there. Johann immediately made us feel welcome and was always on hand to answer any questions or recommend some of the excellent eating places etc, as were some of the owner’s friends down the road.
San Marcos is a working fishing harbour, where you can buy fresh fish daily. It’s away from the main tourist areas and gives a genuine flavour of Spanish life.
Mostly though, although the surrounding area has so much to offer, do and explore, we were happy to enjoy all that this villa offered and would love to escape there again when we can.

Sunny luxurious retreat

  • 5 of 5
I've just returned from a wonderful fortnight in the amazing villa Fortknox Tenerife; relaxed,tanned and toned from hours spent in the lovely pool. Now back in the dull and damp UK it is pleasant to remember the expansive and ever changing views from the villas many balconies and terraces - whether it be the views of the ocean or the sunsets casting wonderful colours across mount Teide -there was always something different to see each day and night.
Hiring a car was useful and allowed us to explore the local area, discovering the pretty coastal village of Garachico with wonderful rock pools to snorkel in and delightful shady town square to enjoy a cold beer or cortado leche y leche or a further 10 minutes drive away the natural beautiful coastline at Buenavista --a must to visit.
The house itself was fabulously clean and well equipped with all home comforts.
We particularly enjoyed the BBQ outdoor areas making the most of the lovely setting for alfresco dining. It was easy to cook in the well equipped kitchen ( making freshly squeezed orange juice was a lovely addition to breakfast ). With San Marcos village only 5 mins drive away we regularly enjoyed its lovely small local beach and the eating in its restaurant. We can recommend the squid with hand cut chips made at the good and reasonably priced restaurant Maritimo "Rafinos", we also would recommend the restaurant Amarca for good reasonably priced ocean front dining.
We were blessed with great weather, in the high 20s and on the only one dull day we used it to enjoy the champagne breakfast at the Monasterio restaurant (El Mirador) in Los Realejos. The holiday seemed over too quickly-so much to see and do .. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Tatsächlich San Marcos Strand viele gute preiswerte Restaurants At San Marcos Strand ca. 1 km hat, gibt es mehrere Restaurants. Dieses kleine Sandbucht ist verwendbar während des ganzen Jahres, und im angrenzenden kleinen alten Fischerhafen, der Barbeque können Sie kaufen jeden Morgen 10.00 lokal frischen Fisch gefangen, oder genießen Sie einfach die Früchte des Meeres in einem Hafen gelegene Restaurant.

Indeed San Marcos beach has many good reasonably priced restaurants At San Marcos beach approx 1 km, there are several restaurants. This small Sandy bay is usable throughout the year, and at the adjacent small old fishing port, for the Barbeque you can buy every morning 10am locally caught fresh Fish, or simply enjoy these fruits of the Sea at a harbour side restaurant.

Ältere Diva

  • 3 of 5
Das Haus wurde ca. Ende der Siebziger gebaut. Es wurde seinerzeit sehr hochwertig gebaut und war in dieser Zeit mit Sicherheit ein Highlight. Trotz allem
und trotz Renovierungen hat es seine beste Zeit hinter sich. Die Küche ist super eingerichtet, wir hatten noch nie eine Ferienhausküche mit so viel Inventar.
Platz ohne Ende und man kann ohne Mühe für 10 Personen darin kochen.
Auch der Pool war sehr schön. Er war beheizt und durch die uneinnehmbare Lage kann man auch ohne Badebekleidung schwimmen gehen.
Der Blick auf den Tiede und das Meer war auch nicht zu verachten.
Im Inneren des Hauses herrscht der Charme der späten 70er bzw. der frühen 80er. Wir empfanden das Innere des Hauses recht dunkel.
Zwei Bäder sind soweit ok, das dritte im Wintergarten lässt zu Wünschen übrig.
Die fünf Schlafzimmer sind zweckmässig, das oberste hat zwar einen schönen Blick aber keinen Schrank.
Wir waren nur zu zweit da.
Mit mehreren Personen hätten wir Probleme mit den Bädern/Toiletten gehabt.
Die Betreuung mit Herrn John war hervorragend. Wir hatten Probleme mit dem Warmwasser, was Herr John sofort geregelt hat.

Traumhafte Lage

  • 4 of 5
Im beheizten Pool schwimmen und auf den schneebedeckten Teide blicken,so war es tatsächlich. Wir hatten trotz unfreundlichen Wetters eine herrliche Zeit. Die Angaben im Inserat treffen voll zu, die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, der Blick von der Terasse zu jeder Tageszeit herrlich. Das Haus ist so weitläufig, Innenräume und Terassen, dass auch bei 8 Personen genügend Platz ist, sich in Ruhe zurückzuziehen. Es ist sehr gepflegt, auch der kleine Garten. Den ruhigen kleinen Sandstrand in der Bucht von San Marcos kann man sogar zu Fuß erreichen, in etwa 30 Minuten. Die Betreuung war freundlich und korrekt. Wir würden wieder in dieses Haus gehen, am liebsten bei wärmerem Wetter.

Wunderschöne Ferienvilla

  • 5 of 5
Die Villa entspricht in allen angaben der Wirklichkeit! Der Pool ist wie in der Beschreibung wirklich beheizt und so auch für das Baden im Februar geeignet.
Von den Terrassen hat man einen fantastischen Blick auf den Teide und auf das Meer
Die Villa ist von einem schönen Garten umgeben, der sich auf zwei ebenen erstreckt.
Der Mailkontakt mit dem Vermieter war sehr nett, auch telefonisch beantwortete er alle Fragen, vor Ort war die Betreuung durch Johann ebenfalls perfekt.

Wir haben unsern nächsten Urlaub im Oktober bereits in dieser Villa gebucht!

The small, romantic beach Playa de San Marcos is less known to tourists, but with the soft, dark sand it is a popular swimming beach for connoisseurs. It is nestled inside one of the bays surrounded by rocks. This place sheltered from wind and waves is very well suited for swimming, even in winter. Parasols and lounge chairs can be rented. After a short walk on the beach, you will reach cafes, restaurants and bars and a pharmacy. A small super market is there approximately half a kilometre away.

Other activities: Golf, forest, sea / ocean, local beach, rock climbing, mountain biking, bicycle, historic places, air sports, recreation and relaxation park.

Golf: Buenavista del Norte. Description: Perhaps the most beautiful golf course of Tenerife Island, in Buenavista del Norte (approx. 10 miles away) located by distinctive rocks and surrounded by the impressive Teno Country Park. Buenavista Golf is situated near the breathtaking coast. You will feel as though you are hitting a ball in to the ocean.
