Cottage Bougainville

Cottage Bougainville (Photos 7 to 11) is a cozy cottage in an avocado plantation. It has a sunny terrace oriented to the south. It is near 3 of the most beautiful black sand beaches of the Island. In summary; a very peaceful place but well communicated.

Only 8 min drive from La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz and 2 min from TF-5 motorway which connects the North with the rest of the Island.

The property is a wooden cottage installed new in August 2014. All is brand new and it offers the commodities of a high standard modern home without loosing the charm of the wooden construction. Accommodates 2 adults and 1 child or youngster on a folding bed. Babies are welcome at no extra cost.

About the property

Villa Juanita Cottages

Four fully independent cottages located on different plots within an avocado plantation in the protected area of El Rincon. Near Puerto de la Cruz and a short walk to Bollullo beach.

Cottage Juanita (photos 1 to 10) was completely refurbished in November of 2013.

Cottage Bougainville (photos 15 to 21) is a wooden cottage installed new in August 2014.

Cottage Hibiscus (photos 23 to 31) is another wooden cottage installed new in August 2014.

Cottage Strelitzia (photos 34 to 46) is the gem of the plantation designed and installed in December 2016.

Whichever one you choose, you will be able to enjoy a relaxing breakfast in your private terrace in the shade of an avocado tree while you listen to the song of the birds and sometimes the sound of the waves crushing against the shore of the nearby beaches. Of course you can also relax while sipping a glass of wine or reading a book on your private sunny terrace or enjoy some star-gazing on clear nights.

We will have for you as a welcome gift upon arrival a basket of fresh season fruits and bottle of Spanish wine.

Any of the cottages is the perfect place because of its tranquility and central location. Only 2 min from the TF-5, the main highway that connects the North with the rest of the Island. La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz; the most important touristic towns of the north of the Island are only an 8 min drive.

On the other hand, the Plantation is only a 20 min walk from some of the most spectacular black-sand beaches of the North (Bollullo, Los Patos and El Ancon). Playa Bollullo is a short 15 to 20 min walk from the plantation. If you like to walk, it is also a great place from where to plan your hitch hiking routes.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to explore Tenerife while staying at one of the most unique places you can imagine.

NEAR VILLA JUANITA

Restaurants – The closest restaurant is “Restaurante San Diego” Here you can eat well and at a reasonable price. Try the “Pollo a la Brasa” “Grilled Chicken”; they use firewood for the grill and it is very tasty. You can walk from the property as long as you do not mind a steep hill after eating. If you go out to the main road at the Church, you walk down towards the Ocean, at approximately 200 meters you will find the restaurant right at the end of the strait stretch where the main road splits into 2 tracks. One to the left (track to Playa Bollullo) and one to the right (track to Playa el Ancon). I will give you many more restaurants within 5 to 10 min drive with the information I send when you make your booking.

Supermarkets – You have many within 5 to 8 minutes by car. 'Lidl' is right of Exit 35 and 'Al Campo' at the 'Comercial Center La Villa' of Exit 36.

Commercial Centres - “Centro Comercial Al Campo - La Villa” is the closest one (5 minutes by car) and is the largest in the North. It has a huge supermarket, many stores, cinemas, restaurants and bars. Also you can find McDonalds and Burger King. “Centro Comercial Martianez” is much smaller but it is in Puerto de la Cruz and opens Sundays.

Beaches – Close by you have three of the most beautiful black sand beaches of the north of the Island.

“Bollullo” is the closest (15 minutes walking) and has the best access; just follow the road from Restaurante San Diego to the left. Be aware that it is a dangerous beach and I would recommend only bathing in the shore, bathe only where you see locals doing it and be careful. This advice is good for all three beaches.

“Los Patos” is also close and the largest, the access is the trickiest. It is great in the summer and, if the sea is quiet, you may bathe with care in the winter as well. To get instructions on how to get there, please ask me.

“El Ancon” is my favourite Black sand, very few people and crystal clear water. The access is good and has beautiful views of “Playa de Los Patos” and the entire shore line from Puerto de La Cruz to Santa Ursula. However the beach tends to disappear in the winter months. To get there, follow the road from “Restaurante San Diego” to the left and when you get to the end, on the left, there is a narrow trail with farm walls on both sides and at the end starts an open trail on the edge of the cliffs with spectacular views. The trail is not dangerous and following it, takes you to the beach.

In Puerto de la Cruz you have “Playa Jardín” and “Playa Martianez” you can also swim in “San Telmo” or enjoy the natural salt water pools of “Lago Martianez” a beautiful complex designed by the famous canarian architect Cesar Manrique.

Not far past Los Realejos you have “Playa del Socorro”, a beautiful black sand beach with lifeguard on duty that ensures that people swim where it’s safe; away from the natural currents that are so dangerous and common in the northern beaches.

Things to do – Places to Visit

There are lots of activities that you can enjoy and places to visit while staying at Villa Juanita.

I would recommend that you visit La Orotava (Oldest colonial town of the North of the Island dating back to 1496 and only a 5 to 8 minute drive away from the property. Here you can see The “Casa de Los Balcones” an old colonial house with spectacular wooden hand crafted balconies and a beautiful interior patio that present in all colonial houses in the Canary Islands. Here you can find all kinds of typical objects ranging from hand crafted tablecloths, typical costumes, souvenirs, gourmet specialities and local spirits. Also you can visit the 'Victoria Gardens', the Town Hall or the beautiful Church of La Concepcion. There are many small restaurants where you can enjoy the typical Spanish tapas or full meals or enjoy a nice espresso at the Kiosk of Plaza de la Constitucion for 0.80€ (and this is standard price in local bars).

Also within a 5 minute drive you can be in Puerto de la Cruz (main tourist centre of the north). Here you can visit the Botanical Gardens, enjoy a relaxing Spa at the Hotel Playa Canaria, visit the Loro Parque which holds one of the most extensive collections of Parrots of the whole world (also has Killer Whale and Dolphin shows, Kids adventure play area, Shark Tunnel, Aquarium, Piguinarium and much more). Also in Puerto de la Cruz you can enjoy the salt water swimming pool complex of “Lago Martianez” designed by the famous canarian arquitect Cesar Manrrique or enjoy a relaxing walk from San Telmo to Plaza del Charco. There is also a gambling casino, restaurants, bars, a fishing pier, etc. Bathing in the ocean can be done at Playa Jardin, San Telmo or Playa Martianez.

Don’t miss out on visiting the National Park “Las Cañadas del Teide” The road to get there as well as the National Park itself constitute one of the most beautiful volcanic landscapes of the world.

Of course there are many more things you can do while staying at Villa Juanita. Let us know if you have a special interest on a particular activity or place to visit and we will give you all the information we have.

Idyllisches Ferienhaus auf einer Avocadofinca

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr schönes Häuschen in ruhiger Lage abseits vom Trubel inmitten einer Avocado-Finca. In der Nachbarschaft sind keine Hotelburgen, sondern weitere Fincas.

Wir hatten einen sehr schönen aktiven Wander- und Mountainbike-Urlaub und haben uns jeden Tag auf unser Häuschen im Grünen gefreut. Das Häuschen ist modern eingerichtet und entspricht den Bildern. Sogar eine elektrische Saftpresse ist vorhanden. Es gibt kein deutschsprachiges Fernsehen dafür aber ein sehr gutes kostenloses WiFi. Alles ist sehr gepflegt und neuwertig. Ein Parkplatz für den Mietwagen gibt es auch auf dem abgeschlossenen Grundstück.

Bernard ist sehr hilfsbereit und nett. Die vorher zur Verfügung gestellten Informationen waren sehr hilfreich und der Restauranttip "San Diego" goldrichtig für uns. Bis zum Strand sind es zu Fuß 15 min. Nach Puerto de la Cruz zu Fuß etwa 30 min.

Mit dem Mietwagen ist alles in wenigen Minuten erreichbar: Einkaufen, La Orotava, Puerto de la Cruz.....

Wir würden gern wieder kommen.

Es war einfach sehr schön!

  • 5 of 5

Das gemütliche Haus liegt ganz wunderbar ruhig in einer Plantage mit viel Grün rundherum. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, klein aber sehr nett. Ted hat uns herzlich empfangen und wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt. So nahe ein gutes Restaurant zu finden, hat uns gut gefallen. Ebenso der Strand, der fußläufig gut zu schaffen ist - nicht aber in 15 Minuten ;-) Das gut durchdachte kleine Holzhaus, die Umgebung und Ted haben dazu geführt, dass wir eine perfekte Woche hatten. Wir können nur 5 Sterne vergeben. Danke!

Besser als jedes Hotel

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft von Ted war wunderschön, mit viel Liebe eingerichtet, sehr sauber und in einer idyllischen Lage!

Man hatte dort alles was man brauchte und man fühlte sich schnell heimisch.

Wir können die Unterkunft sehr weiter empfehlen und werden auf jeden Fall bei Ted wieder Gäste werden.

Ted selber war ein perfekter Gastgeber mit einem Großen Obstkorb und einer Flasche Wein als Begrüßung. Er war sehr hilfsbereit und gab uns viele Tips die uns super halfen.

Er war sehr offen uns gegenüber und hatte stets ein Lächeln auf den Lippen.

Wir bedanken uns für die schönen Tage und freuen uns auf ein baldiges Wiedersehen.
