“Superb city house with local flavour”

This was our first stay in Santa Cruz and we selected the house, Lujosa casa from the stunning photographs on their web site and from a virtual tour of the area using Google and we were not disappointed.
First the house, just look at the photographs it is beautiful well laid out and tastefully decorated with some exquisite and expensive furnishings. The roof terrace area is extensive and well equipped, a beautiful place sit and chill with a glass of wine after wandering around the lovely city. Or you could sit in the lounge area with the balcony doors open and listen to the chatter of children or people walking by below in the narrow street all in Spanish adding to the perfect charm of being on holiday in a location which many tourists have yet to find. The open plan kitchen with an extensive array of equipment sits beside the lounge with one flight of stairs leading up to the master bed room with en suite and a few separate stairs leading down to the second bed room, dressing room and second bathroom. Both rooms are spacious with beds that were a delight to sleep in and just wait till you try the shower in the en suite which has a range of features only seen in a Five star plus hotel. In a way that statement sums up the accommodation - truly Five Star Plus.
Down the stairs to the main entrance and within a few paces you can find a fantastic selection of bars, cafes and restaurants, try the Calle Antonio Dominguez Alfonso to the right for a pleasant selection or if you wish to cook in try the nearby market which has a wide range of produce and is an extremely pleasant way to shop. There are some beautiful buildings to see and a wide range of museums to visit it really is a lovely city with very friendly locals. Try the tram ride to La Laguna, the old capital both for a change of scenery and an enjoyable journey with different views to look at.
Inesa and Mario, excellent hosts , met us when we arrived and showed us around the house, car park and surrounding area. All communication was spot on.
One day we would hope to come back for another visit to Santa Cruz and there is only one place in which we will be staying.

“Very, very impressive”
Reviewed February 15, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We are a couple with an apartment in the south of Tenerife. My brother and his wife were visiting from Emgland as they do every year. This time they wanted to see Santa Cruz so we booked this apartment for three days. It was perfect! Two bedrooms and two bathrooms on different floors meant each couple had privacy. Although we gave them the bigger bedroom and bathroom ours was fine too.
We have never before stayed in a holiday home that was more luxurious than our own! In this one everything was of the best quality - from the kitchen appliances to the bedlinen. It was just superb. It was every bit as good as the photo.
Inesa was brilliant too. She replied to all our emails promptly and helped when we had difficulty processing our payment. She was super flexible over arrival and departure times.
She spend a good 20 minutes talking us through the workings of everything in the house,
Just hope we can return next year.
We have been told by Trip Advisor that our deposit has been repaid by the owner (exactly the day it was promised). However we have been told to expect a 7-10 day delay before it reaches our bank account. This seems a rather long wait for Trip Advisor to release it.

Liked best: The roof terrace was the icing on the cake.
Liked least: An ice-cube tray would have been useful. Husband wanted a sun lounger but then he would have just fallen asleep all afternoon!

We are pleased to know that you have enjoyed your stay in our house during these 3 days. It is true that by the rules of Tripadvisor website, the security deposit of all guests, takes about 7-8 days to be returned back to them.

“A perfect apartment in the centre of old town Santa Cruz”
Reviewed November 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures, it has top rate appliances and fittings and is immaculate in every way. Mario and Imelda take fabulous care of every detail and from first booking, to the end of our stay were easy to contact and very helpful.
The local area is fabulous, you are right in the heart of the old town, and there are plenty of bars and restaurants just a short stroll away. Transport on buses and the tram is cheap, clean and frequent services, so a car is not essential, you can easily catch a bus from Santa Cruz airport (south) to the apartment.
We also really enjoyed living 'like a local' and shopping for wonderful fresh fruit and veg, meat and fish at the local market a 5 minutes stroll away, and enjoying a coffee on our way back to the apartment.

“beautiful apartment, great roof terrace”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We loved this apartment, particularly the huge sunny roof terrace. The location is also perfect, right next to a buzzy road of restaurants but tucked away around a corner so it's quiet.

The owner was lovely and friendly and went out of her way to make everything comfortable for us. Would highly recommend.

“Beautiful house in a perfect location”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This house exceeded all our expectations in every respect and the pictures do not do it justice. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spacious. The roof terrace is fantastic - large with plenty of comfortable furniture.
The city is on the doorstep and everything is within walking distance, but if you want to explore further afield, the bus and tram system is close by.
Mario is a good host and very helpful.
It is probably the best holiday rental we have stayed in and when we re-visit Santa Cruz, we will have no hesitation in returning to Inesa and Marios house.
