About Cottage Hibiscus
Thanks for considering Cottage Hibiscus at Villa Juanita for your vacation. We are sure that you will enjoy what we hope will be one of your best vacations in Tenerife. It is very cozy and accommodates 2 comfortably. There is also room for a folding bed or a cod if you travel with a child or a baby.
Here you will be able to enjoy a relaxing breakfast in your private terrace in the shade of an avocado tree while you listen to the song of the birds and sometimes the sound of the waves crushing against the black sand of the nearby beaches. Also you can watch the stars on clear nights, it is a beautiful spectacle.
Enjoy tranquillity but close to everything. Located within a very quiet avocado plantation, the cottage is only 5 min away from La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz; the most important touristic towns of the north of the Island and 2 min from TF-5 the North motorway that connects the north with the rest of the Island.
Criss, my wife and me will try to help you in anything you need. We have put a lot of love and dedication to ensure that you are as comfortable as we would like to be when we go on vacation.
The cottage has been built in July 2014 on a very private lot of the avocado plantation and it offers all the commodities of a modern home without loosing the charm of the wooden construction.

Things to do – Places to Visit
There are lots of activities that you can enjoy and places to visit while staying at Villa Juanita.
I would recommend that you visit La Orotava (Oldest colonial town of the North of the Island dating back to 1496 and only a 5 to 8 minute drive away from the property. Here you can see The “Casa de Los Balcones” an old colonial house with spectacular wooden handcrafted balconies and a beautiful interior patio that present in all colonial houses in the Canary Islands. Also you can visit the 'Victoria Gardens', the Town Hall or the beautiful Church of La Concepcion. There are many small restaurants where you can enjoy the typical Spanish tapas or full meals or enjoy a nice expresso at the Kiosko of Plaza de la Constitucion.
Also within a 5 to 8 minute drive you can be in Puerto de la Cruz (main tourist centre of the north). Here you can enjoy a nice walk from Playa Martianez to Plaza del Charco passing by San Telmo all along the coast line. It is very touristy but very nice. Also you can visit the Botanical Gardens, enjoy a relaxing Spa at the Hotel Playa Canaria, visit the Loro Parque. Also in Puerto de la Cruz you can enjoy the salt water swimming pool complex of “Lago Martianez” designed by the famous canarian arquitect Cesar Manrrique. There is also a gambling casino, restaurants, bars, a fishing pier, etc. Bathing in the ocean can be done at Playa Jardin, San Telmo or Playa Martianez.
