Having visited Tenerife many many times over the last 30 years, this was our first time to stay away from the main tourist areas and the hustle and bustle of the crowds. However, the location, San Miguel, is only a 20 minute drive from the main tourist destinations. We hired a car that enabled us to explore but we were told by our hosts that some previous guests had got around using the local bus service too. (A safe car park is near to the property). We were within easy travelling distance from El Medano, Los Abrigos, Golf de Sur, Los Cristianos Las America’s and Adeje.
San Miguel itself was a lovely small town with all you require for your stay, a butcher, a chemist, veg shop, bakery, supermarket, and cafes and restaurants. We ate in quite a few and the food was lovely and very reasonably priced. Would especially recommend La Bodega restaurant.
Our accommodation was great and had everything we needed for our stay. It was spotlessly clean inside and out. The garden was private and secluded and great for sunbathing, eating out in the sunshine, lovely comfortable garden furniture and the hot tub and jet sprinklers (for cooling down) were an added bonus. The kitchen catered for our needs, with an oven, toaster, microwave, washing machine, Kettle etc and all the things you would have in your home, so we were able to easily eat in or out depending on how we felt.
The living room was comfortable and had a tv with many channels and good internet.
The hosts were great. They met us on arrival as they live in the adjacent property, to talk us through the property details and how things worked. They had also created a really useful reference file with lots of interesting information, tips and recommendations of where to go and eat.
Throughout the holiday they were not intrusive, but touched base with us via What’s app to check we were ok and if they could help in any way. They gave us notice when they were popping around to change the bedding or water plants, and we knew they were there if we needed them for anything.
To sum up, great place to stay, great hosts, great location, lovely place to unwind. We would love to go back.
