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.

Relaxing, quiet location with good facilities

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation sits in the middle of a banana plantation so it's very quiet. The pool area is well kept, although doesn't get a huge amount if sun. However the rooftop sun terrace offers plenty of sun as well as shelter from the wind if its blowy. The villa us well equipped and had all we need. The site also has a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer which is very useful.

Some good local restaurants- we ate at the Mexican down the road twice and if you want good sea food then Los abrigos is just down the road.

All in all a very relaxing break.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review! I am glad you found the houses well equipped and comfortable, and you enjoyed the restaurants at the área. In January you can get sunshine only on the middle hours of the day, but of course it is the very Winter here (even if you can sunbabath and swim, it gets dark at 18:00 hrs). Yes, that mexican close to the finca you visited twice is quite famous....

An oasis of peace and calm.

  • 4 of 5

This little group of villas is set in aworking banana plantation in a local village,so no sophisticated bars or restaurants. I suppose you really need a car,but we managed very well using the buses.You can download an ap which tells you when the next bus is due! Another plus are the free bananas.

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
