Charming and very comfortable holiday apartment right opposite the beach. Enjoy beautiful views over the ocean and stunning sunrises. On a clear day you can see the neighbouring island of Gran Canaria.
The owner of the flat is a hiking guide and can provide you with information about the best places to go to, depending on your interests, to make your stay truly memorable. Please get in touch should you require a pick-up from the airport.
The ground floor of the flat consists of a bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom with a shower and a big, open living room with a kitchen and dining area, as well as a balcony with ocean views. The sofa in the living room can convert into another double bed. A flight of stairs leads up to a smaller room on the second floor with a futon bed and access to a terrace that overlooks the Atlantic ocean.
The apartment is fully equipped, as the owner lives there during some parts of the year. A washing machine, oven, microwave, TV, etc are provided. The apartment is situated in a quiet, private residential complex which has a shared swimming pool. You can also use the nearby basketball court.
Puertito de Güimar is a small, typically Canarian town and far away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded tourist destinations but with quick access to the motorway. It´s perfectly located halfway between the south and the north, making it the ideal base for discovering the rest of the island. In the local restaurants you can try traditional Canarian dishes, as well as locally caught fish and squid.
The more than 1 kilometer long, volcanic black beach invites you to bathe in the sun and the inner harbour with its wooden boardwalk and crystal clear water is perfect for swimming and snorkelling, as it´s not being used by boats.
Directly outside of Puertito de Güimar you can explore the spectacular landscape of the nature reserve “Malpais de Güimar” with its unique vegetation and its own little volcano, the “Volcan de Socorro”.
Easy to find. Puertito de Güimar is perfectly situated about 20 minutes away from the capital (Santa Cruz) and only about 25 minutes away from both the southern and northern airport. It´s a quiet town, almost untouched by tourism and mainly visited by canarians. Only 8 minutes away you can find the town of Candelaria , famous for its Basilica, in which you can find the “Virgen Negra” (black virgin), the patron saint of Tenerife.
