Looking for a rest? Do you like watching the sun come up? Would you like to enjoy a romantic evening view of the Atlantic? Do you want to rent a luxurious house for the most desirable weeks of the year and are you looking for a cultured atmosphere?
All this, but still only few minutes
from the nearest restaurants, supermarkets and everything a major town
has to offer?
We have exactly what you’re looking
for: the finca owner's house of the "La Capitana" finca!
The "La Capitana" finca lies in the
south of Tenerife between San Isidro and Granadilla at a height of about
390 metres. With more than 50,000 m2, the property could be called
"gigantic". Guests who love natural surroundings and take pleasure from
holidays in the countryside to escape everyday stress are most welcome
here. The motto here is individual holidays, not mass tourism.
a few hundred metres, very close by, there is a typical Canarian
village with a restaurant and a small supermarket. The surroundings are
given over to vine growing, and cultivation of vegetables and potatoes.
One has the pleasant feeling that time has stopped here, because there
is nothing to be felt of the hectic rush of the city, stress and noise,
and neither hotels nor high-rise apartments. Instead, you have nature,
peace and tranquillity from the first moment on.
space of the house amounts to around 98m2 and is divided into a sitting
room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. In the 200m2 swimming hall there
are the pool, a pool bar, a sauna, shower and WC. Most of the windows of
the swimming hall can be removed or opened. In addition, there are two
terraces of about 60m2 each. One of these terraces runs just about the
whole width of the house and the swimming hall. The other terrace is at
the side of the swimming hall. It is secluded from view and sheltered
from the wind. There is a charcoal grill there too. You can park your
car behind the house in the private parking bay.
In the sitting
room there are a comfortable sofa and other chairs. There is a
television set with satellite connection for the receipt of many
important international channels, and in addition, a stereo with radio
and CD player. Should there be a chillier winter evening, the enclosed
tiled fireplace creates pleasant warmth and provides a romantic mood. In
the computer corner, you can connect your laptop to the Internet via a
broadband LAN or W-LAN connection.
The dining area is just a few steps from the kitchen. There is a round glass dining table with three chairs. The kitchen is open to the sitting room. It is completely equipped: dishwasher, four-ring gas hob, small oven, coffeemaker, toaster, kettle, fridge/freezer, microwave and a lot more. A washing machine and a tumble drier are installed in a separate utility area.
The double bed in the bedroom has two single mattresses of 90 x 200 cm, giving an overall bed size of 180 x 200 cm. The large floor-to-ceiling wardrobe will take care of all of your clothes during a longer stay too. The bathroom is about 3 x 4 m. On the left-hand side there are large storage shelves and a built-in wash basin. More or less in the middle of the room is a big bath with hydro-massage that will provide for great bath-time fun, because there is room for two people... A corner shower, bidet and WC round-off the fittings. An ironing board, iron, bathrobes, and a hairdryer also are provided. Bed linen, towels, bath towels and tea towels are provided in plenty. The house is equipped with its own water purification plant. So you do not need to buy drinking water as is usual in most coastal regions.
The illuminated pool is around 4 x 8 m and about 1.50 m deep and is equipped with a counter-stream function. Solar cells provide warm water, 25 degrees and more. In addition, a jacuzzi and a Finnish sauna with a wood stove are available to guests.
There are riding stables on the other side of this large property, as the owner has an interest in horses. It is not a riding stable in the usual sense, and public riding is not available to everyone. However, if guests are interested in horse-riding, for a low fee, they may do so, or learn to ride under skilled instruction. The owner also offers sailing trips on his own yacht. You can discuss this on site with him.
The "La Capitana" house is a non-smoking property. You may, however, smoke outside the house, on the terraces or the big open area.
You can drive to Tenerife South airport in about 15 minutes. Despite the relative proximity to the airport, there is absolutely no aircraft noise. You’ll need about 15 to 20 minutes to get to the beaches at El Médano. If you want to take a plunge into the bustle of Playa de las Americas, you can be there in about 20 minutes. There are simple typical restaurants and bars as well as smaller supermarkets nearby. Larger supermarkets and many shops of all kinds, bakers, butchers, pharmacies, petrol stations etc. are found in the local town of “San Isidro”, about 6 km away. There are several very good restaurants offering Canarian cuisine, with meat and fish specialities.
