“A taste of Tenerife”
Reviewed 28 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Michael, the owner of "Casa "Mar", was the epitome of the perfect landlord. Living nearby he was always able to resolve any problems, or answer any queries that might arise. Set on the outskirts of a smart suburb of Orotava, the apartment is the lower third of a bungalow type building. It is accessed from the on-street parking by way of a corridor that ends in 14 steps. Facing North-East, the view from the patio looks out over mostly undeveloped ground, to the Atlantic.
Inside, the rooms are adequately furnished in an 'Ikea' style manner, and the galley type kitchen contains all that is necessary for a self-catering holiday. The two bathrooms are spacious, and bottled gas efficiently takes care of the hot water system. The patio ( half boarded, half tiled), has a 3 by 2 metre plunge pool; and the B.B.Q. area has a built in oven next to a table and chairs. The direct sun was lost round about 4pm, as it set behind the upper storey roof.
A brisk 20 minute walk will take you to quite a reasonably sized "Spar" super-market, but be warned, going back is uphill!. We found a hire car a necessity in this respect, especially as a huge shopping complex was only a 5 minute drive in the direction of Puerto de la Cruz.
When travelling around we were enchanted with Loro Parque. Sensitively placed in a tropical setting, the beautiful gardens housed and displayed to full advantage many species of parrot, numerous animals, and the best Sea World arena yet. The meticulous planning, investment and care of those animals has to be seen to be believed. Even down to the Hospital/Laboratory, with vets on 24 hour call. The 10 minute drive to Puerto de la Cruz, and a 1000 car free parking along the Esplanade, allows you then to browse the town. The Martianez Swimming pool complex, offers a complete day out, with its different sized pools, loungers and little restaurants. Further afield is Candelaria having large statues of the Guanche warriors on the sea front. There is also Bajamar with the natural pools fronting the Atlantic; and on the other side of the Island , North of Santa Cruz, are the golden sands of San Andres.
Yes, we would thoroughly recommend this holiday rental as a comfortable base from which to enjoy all that the Island has to offer.

“Great Casa - well equipped and well managed”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Great place to stay with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, good kitchen large lounge and nice outside space. The only downside was that it was located in the suburbs of La Oratava, the historic centre being about a 20 minute walk away.

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Lovely place to stay, Michael was a very good host, well equipped villa with plenty of hot water. Recomend transport if staying here although you can walk into town in about 10-15 minutes. Good location for shops again by car. On suite bathroom has excellent shower. Michael also supplied bar-b-que coals and lighters. Highly recommended. Thanks Michael.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Communication with the owner Michael was very easy. He sent us guide with pictures and place was easy to find. House was clean, plenty of room for 4 of us, it will be great also for party of 6. Pleasant surprise was fruit basket and drink as welcome gift from Michael. The owner helped us a lot - he was so kind for bringing us tickets to Loro park, lovely jazz concert and advised where to spend Halloween night - Blanco bar was so great. He even printed out our boarding passes.
House is in quiet neighborhood, it is so good that there are no heavy traffic, it is easy to sleep til noon. View from terrass was also really great! Wifi worked well, TV had german channels but we watched our news via wifi so it was not a problem that we did not speak german :).
I would definitely stay there again - there are lot more to do or see in Tenerife. This place is perfect starting point and much closer to great places than south part noisy resorts.

“Great location and very well equipped”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

We've stayed in lots of rental apartments and villas across Spain, Italy and France and this one rates very highly. Highlights are that it was exceptionally clean, well equipped with lots of kitchen-ware (including blender & juicer), excellent showers and constant hot water. La Oratava is a good location if you want to see traditional Tenerife and it is very accessible to the motorway for getting around. We took our bikes and a word of warning if you're doing the same - La Oratava (and Tenerife in general) is very hilly so you need to be very fit! Michael the owner is very helpful and on hand if you have any questions. In the area, I recommend making time to go to the fish restaurant he recommends at the harbour in Puerto Cruz, swimming in the pools at Bajamar and Punta del Hilago and getting out to the Monte de Mercedes - really stunningly beautiful.
