Charming,Comfortable, and very well equipped
Our stay in cottage Juanita was comfortable and so well equipped that we had everything at our fingertips, including a washing machine!!!! Ted went out of his way to make our stay stress free and comfortable. Would return many times over...
Total relaxation in this delightful cottage
The cottage was very clean, well maintained and had everything and more, that we expected from a holiday home. It is in a peaceful position surrounded by avocado trees which give welcome shade from the sun when you need it. Ted was very helpful giving us ideas and recommendations on places to visit and eat, while we were there, and before we went. His directions to the cottage were very clear so we had no problems finding our way.
It was with great pleasure and surprise to see Mount Teide's snow covered top from the patio on our first morning and most days after too! We walked into Puerto De La Cruz twice and enjoyed Tapas from two great and reasonably priced restaurants, taxi back, as it was dark, cost about 8 euros.
Wonderful place to be
Wonderful place to be in a very well-maintained and very good equipped cottage. A place that serves very good as a initial-point to explore the whole island. Important to mention: Ted. He gives a very warm welcome, is helpful in any way, we appreciated especially his many very useful hints. Thank you and we'd like to come back....
Großartig! Wirklich zu empfehlen!
Meine Freundin und ich waren im Juli 12 Tage auf Teneriffa und wohnten in dem Cottage Juanita. Uns hat es dort sehr gefallen, wir wären auch noch länger geblieben - aber wie das so ist, Urlaub hat man eben nur eine begrenzte Zeit...
Das Cottage war genauso wie es die Bilder zeigen. Es war sehr schön und hell eingerichtet, alles war sehr sauber!!!
Die Küche wie auch der Rest der Wohnräume sind sehr gut ausgestattet. Es hat WLAN und Satteliten-TV für den Empfang internationaler Sender. Man kann sich problemlos selbst versorgen: kochen, backen, bügeln, Wäsche waschen usw.
Die dazugehörige Terrasse ist auch zu erwähnen, wer es liebt im Grünen zu sein, der wird es lieben!!! Sie ist sehr schön angelegt - von Avocado- und Bananenbäumen umgeben - und die nutzten wir vor oder auch nach unseren Ausflügen täglich zum sonnen, entspannen oder grillen.
Die Umgebung ist recht ruhig, so dass wir bei offenem Fenster sehr gut schlafen konnten. In der Nähe befindet sich ein sehr gutes Restaurant "San Diego" (die Straße runter) und der wunderschöne, nicht zu überlaufene Strand "El Bollullo" ((15 Min. Fußweg oder mit PKW) auf die Farbe der Flaggen achten wegen der Brandungs- und Wellenstärke, auch Wasserschuhe sind empfehlenswert da sich der schwarze Sand sehr aufheizt).
Wir hatten ein Mietauto, somit kann ich über die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel nichts sagen, die wohl durch ihre gute Verbindung und Ticketpreise einen guten Ruf genießen. Die Anbindung zur Autobahn ist sehr gut, einige Kilometer vom Cottage in Richtung Puerto de la Cruz gibt es an der Autobahn Geschäfte jeglicher Art: Essen, Kleidung etc. Ansonsten gibt die Insel einem mehr als genug zu erkunden, eine Aufzählung würde nur dauern und ist zudem sehr geschmacks-/ interessenabhängig. Wir haben auch nicht alles geschafft, was ein Wiederkommen zusichert!!!
Ted haben wir als einen sehr netten und höflichen Gastgeber erlebt. Er hatte uns bereits vor dem Flug einige Informationen über das Cottage, die Insel mit seinen Sehenswürdigkeiten und die eine oder andere Empfehlung zugeschickt. Bei unserer Ankunft hatte Ted uns empfangen, uns alles gezeigt und noch offene Fragen geklärt. Es gab einen Obstkorb und eine Flasche spanischen Wein! Im Gesamten haben wir einen sehr positiven Eindruck, seine Anwesenheit war sehr dezent. Er gab uns einige tolle Empfehlungen für die wir letztendlich, aufgrund der tollen Erlebnisse, dankbar waren!
Aus unserer Sicht und auf Grund der Erfahrungen ist es eine absolute Empfehlung!
Lovely accomodation in a quiet rural setting
Very comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a lovely quiet rural setting on an avocado plantation. Although quiet, it is only a couple of minutes drive to the Autopista for easy and quick access to the rest of the island. Puerto de la Cruz is only 5 minutes drive away, with numerous restaurants, cafes and touristic sights.Ted was welcoming and helpful, without being intrusive. Highly recommended.
Lovely comfortable, well presented cottage.
The cottage has been well planned and thought out, beautifully finished and well equipped and is both comfortable and welcoming with plenty of space.
As Ted was not going to be able to greet us on arrival as he would normally do, he made sure well in advance that we were aware of how to access the property and that we had his contact number.
The outside space is pretty with colourful plants surrounding the terrace giving privacy. The owners are friendly, helpful and available if needed to give any local advice or recommendations.
The San Diego restaurant at the bottom of the hill, 5 minutes walk away, has a great menu and lives up to Ted's excellent recommendation. The volcanic scenery on Mount Teide is unmissable and the north coast is well worth a visit.
All in all, a great space to stay which we would be happy to recommend to friends and family.
Near the Property : 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. Left to Playa Bollullo or Right to Playa El Ancon. Another restaurants nearby that we can recommend are: - El Monasterio. Passing comercial centre Al Campo La Villa towards La Montañeta about 200 m on your right. It is a beautiful setting with various thematic restaurants and coffee shop with pastries as well on weekends the serve brunch. Also there is an outside area with animals for the kids and grownups to visit. - El Calderito in Santa Ursula good food with spectacular views. - La Bodeguita de Enfrente in front of El Calderito, nice tapas. - Casa Egon in La Orotava with a terrace overlooking the Jardines Victoria. - La Solera also in La Orotava is a nice place to have Tapas (Try the Serrano Ham) - Tito’s Bodeguita in San Nicolas near Al Campo La Villa, very nice patio with live music on weekends. - La Compostelana in Plaza del Charco in Puerto de La Cruz. - Cervecería Hannen in Plaza del Charco in Puerto de La Cruz. Nice places for a cocktail (also they have restaurant): - Sunset 290 in Vista Paraiso – Santa Ursula (5 min from home). - Terrazas del Sauzal – El Sauzal (15 min from home). - Abaco Mansión Antigüa in El Durazno.

Supermarkets – You have many within 5 to 10 minutes by car. Mercadona, Hiperdino and Lidl in Santa Ursula are the closest. On Sundays you have to go to Puerto de la Cruz and there you can find “Hipertrebol” in “Centro Comercial La Cupula” or “Supermercado 2000” in La Paz or “Mercadona” in “Commercial Centre Martianez”. Commercial Centres - “Centro Comercial Al Campo - La Villa” is the closest one (5 minutes by car) and is the largest in the North.

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 handcrafted balconies and a beautiful interior patio that present in all colonial houses in the Canary Islands. 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 expresso at the Kiosko of Plaza de la Constitucion. Also within a 5 to 8 minute drive you can be in Puerto de la Cruz (main tourist centre of the north). Here you can enjoy a nice walk from Playa Martianez to Plaza del Charco passing by San Telmo all along the coast line. It is very touristy but very nice. Also you can visit the Botanical Gardens, enjoy a relaxing Spa at the Hotel Playa Canaria, visit the Loro Parque. 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. 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.
