Our stay in Candelaria (Las Caletillas) was absolutely incredible! Without a doubt, we were thoroughly impressed with the apartment and the surrounding areas. The apartment was clean, new and very comfortable for our family. It was my wife, son (4 1/2), my mother-in-law and me staying in the flat. It had everything you could desire, from complete kitchen, towels, plenty of space for clothing, etc. Our stay was 6 weeks and it really felt like our own home. José Luís, the owner of the flat is extremely professional, courteous and accommodating. We were writing from the USA and his response time was incredible! A true pro! My communication with him was in Spanish. To my knowledge, he does have a decent grasp of English. Again, he went above and beyond what I expected. I even locked my keys in the flat when we took a trip to Puerto de la Cruz. I wrote him in the morning and by the time we got back, I was able to get into the flat again! Amazing!
It was close to the beach, has a great pool and in extremely quiet at night time. We could sleep with all of the windows open and there was no noise at all. This way the cool night breeze could come through (we stayed in July and half of August).
The flat comes with a garage parking space too which was very nice. Caletillas is quite happening on the weekends so it was nice not to have to fight for a parking spot. It is also an extremely safe area. There is very little foreign tourism (the tourism they have is mostly Spanish and people from Santa Cruz) so if you're looking to blend with the locals, this is the place! There are great restaurants, supermarkets and a small mall within walking distance. There were also plenty of parks so that our son could play. He had a blast! In the mornings, I would go for a run and there was a small exercise course at the end of the boardwalk to do basic exercises. On Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, there is a small volunteer group that does Yoga on the beach at 8pm for FREE! My wife joined in a few times and it was great! Very nice people an super friendly.
I go to Tenerife for business and family vacations and you can guarantee that I will be staying at this flat again!! By the way, he also has a 1 bedroom flat for rent in the same complex if your looking for something smaller.
All in all, José Luís really make our vacation one to remember! I highly recommend this flat and the area! It's awesome!!!!
