About Ana B. Reid

My name is Ana B. Reid, although my second surname is English, I am totally Spanish!. I am a Tenerife resident and I studied Business Administration at ULL University. Apart from that, I have the following TOURIST LICENSE NUMBER: I-0002152.1

All my clients receive complete tourist information, a bit different of the typical one, about hidden beaches, local markets, recommended restaurants, events, ect.

Ana B. Reid purchased this house in 1999

Why Ana B. Reid chose Arona

I recommend this finca as it is a totally different accommodation concept on the Canary Islands. Being in the middle of the banana plantation offers a quiet atmosphere with all the local taste. The pool is absolutely wonderful and there is such an amount of vegetation around the terraces that there is enough privacy on each house. The situation is also an advantage: away from the massive tourist zones but close enough to enjoy the coastal temperatures and excellent communications everywhere.

What makes this house unique

Having a Real Heated pool is an advantage on Winter, as you might have 21ºC but it is great to enjoy the large pool to swim. The finca is enormous and gives you the advantage of follow the route inside to see how a banana plantation works. Obviously, being only 3 km of the coast gives you the chance to visit the beach on any moment and specially its sea avenues with its fresh fish restaurants where the locals go, away from the crowded tourist places. We can provide all the information you require about this.

Lovely relaxing spot

  • 4 of 5

Spacious houses in beautifully maintained surroundings. Good facilities and a great alternative to a busy resort. The pool area was lovely with one downside. I chose this complex for our winter break due to the 'really heated pool' so I was disappointed that it was cooler than I expected.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much! I am happy to know that you had a nice time, yes the property is very well maintained. Well, hotels here have pools heated up to 24ºC (that is what the autorities suggest due to to sanitary conditions) but being a small resort, here we have 27ºC which is a high temperature for Winter time. Outdoor pools never get the temperatures of the indoor pools, but you are right, we should specificy 27ºC on the property description. Anyway I am glad that you enjoyed the pool area! All the best

Lovely, clean and well maintained place

  • 5 of 5

Nubi was very kind and helpful. The pool was great and our little girl loved it. The Rancho de Nino and El Cordero restaurants are close by and good places to eat. We had a car so we had no problems getting around, we found a good Hyperdino supermarket about a 7 min drive away and that was where we shopped. We would have no reservations about coming here again in the future.

Absolutely loved our two week stay! Lovely two bedroom finca which was very clean and had a brilliant terrace which we spent a lot of time sitting on with our children. We even bought a little BBQ to use on the terrace. The pool are was beautiful and so clean. Our children (10 and 8) absolutely loved the pool and the little room next to the pool area. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time. The depth of the pool was perfect for us as well as the children. We also hired a car which you do need there. Nubi who looks after the fincas was so lovely and helpful. The only negative was that our bedroom (situated at the back) was really hot even with the fan going all day and night. The kids' room was perfect.

The Mexican Restaurant in Guargacho is excellent for couples and families. Las Galletas is a short car journey/taxi ride and has lovely fish restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! Yes, I agree the pool is the best of this banana plantation, and the kind of guest we have (interested mostly on sighseeing) make that the pool is quiet. Yes, the double bedroom is very demanded in Winter because it gets sun but on these unusual hot weeks we had maybe is not the best option! Nubi is fantastic, she send regards! thank you again

Owner's Response: Thank you very much! I am happy to know that you enjoyed so much the house and specially the pool. Yes, there are only 3 restaurants, a supermarket and a bakery at walking distance, that is why we recomend to book a car or take the bus/taxi (just in front of the entrance of the property) to get to the nearest village and beach, 2,8 km away). The banana plantation is ideal to have a real rest away from the busy tourist áreas. You were a very good client so you would be very welcome on the future. Best wishes!

We loved our stay here! The house was clean & spacious, with plenty of living space, including a very large roof terrace for serious sunbathers! Very private seating area in front of the house, which we used a lot. Everywhere is so well cared for. We never once saw a leaf on the pool! The gardens are fantastic, so lush and tropical! We also enjoyed walking through the plantation, so quiet and peaceful. We did hire a car and saw quite a bit of the island in our short stay. Las Galletas, just 3km away has a beautiful harbour, lovely restaurants & a real Spanish feel. We would highly recommend visiting La Laguna. It is beautiful & just around 1 hour away. Locally we ate at El Cordeira...amazing for meat, however 1 ribeye steak EASILY feeds two! Just a few minutes walk away ( turn left at the church) is Restaurant La Badana is fantastic. Great food , well priced & full of locals. ( only open Thurs-Sun lunch). We would HIGHLY recommend staying at the finca & are certain we will return! Thanks to Nubi who looks after the place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! Yes, the property is really well maintained and of course having that really Heated pool and the huge amount of vegetation makes the place really attractive! Thank you for all your recommendations about local restaurants, our future guests will follow them! This corner of the south of the island is one of the few with the "real Spanish" local atmosphere, comparing with the rest of the south side which is very touristic. La Laguna shows how the island was before the tourist and prosperity arrived!
