About the property

Cottage in Granadilla de Abona, Tenerife, Canary Islands - Quiet and Picturesque Location. Ideal for Couples, Families, and Friends. Short Drive to Beaches.

'Orange Tree Cottage' (Casa Patio Naranjo) is a charming cottage available for holiday rentals. Built in the early 19th Century, this traditional Canarian cottage is located in the historic centre of Granadilla de Abona, a small village in the southern part of the island of Tenerife – just a few miles from the main tourist areas and only 7.1 miles from Tenerife South Airport (Aeropuerto Reina Sofia). Our location makes it perfect for you to enjoy both the buzz in the natural beaches of the southern part of the island (i.e. El Medano) and the solitude of El Teide National Park. Our cottage is very spacious and has been furnished to reflect traditional Canarian interiors.

About Orange Tree Cottage

I have lived in Granadilla for over 50 years. I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have. I am also a great source of local knowledge. Phone/message me for more details on the property or with requests.

Orange Tree Cottage purchased this cottage in 50

Why Orange Tree Cottage chose Santa Cruz

For an authentic Canarian experience away from the overcrowded and tacky tourist areas.

What makes this cottage unique

Original architectural integrity Lush gardens. A lifetime of dedication to the property my husband and I inherited over 50 years ago. And if, after reading my property profile you are still unconvinced, go with Orange Tree Cottage because knowledge is priceless: I have invaluable local knowledge. Also, for unmatched hospitality.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We really loved everything about the cottage.... Location, decor, cleanliness, ambience... We couldn't have chosen a better place for our holiday. We go to Tenerife every year and this has been the best. Mrs Garcia was an excellent host and made us feel like family rather than visitors. Orange Tree Cottage is truly a little piece of Paradise!!!" Patricia, Inverness, Scotland

“Thank you for providing a home from home for our first visit to Tenerife. You have made us feel very welcome. A comfortable, idyllic base for our holiday. Thank you so much!” Peter and Louise, UK

“Thank you Mrs Garcia for your warm welcome and help during our stay. We loved the cottage; it’s really comfortable and the garden is beautiful!” Jane and Terry, UK

“Thank you for your generous hospitality and fantastic and comfortable house to stay in. The garden is so pretty and well-loved too!” Ben and Val, Bristol, UK

Tenerife South Airport ('Aeropuerto Reina Sofia') is only 7.1 miles from our cottage. This international airport offers a variety of car hire services – please contact us for our personal favourites!


We strongly recommend you visit the seaside town of El Medano (7.1 miles), which boasts of having the largest natural beaches of Tenerife. If you would rather have quiet beaches mostly popular with the locals and the opportunity to practice your favourite water sport then El Medano is the place for you.


You simply cannot visit Tenerife and not take a trip up to El Teide National Park (23 miles). Named World Heritage Site in 2007, the National Park is the most famous landmark in the Canary Islands and there you can find El Teide, an active volcano (the highest mountain in Spain). Take a cable car to the top and enjoy the truly breath-taking views of the island of Tenerife and the other surrounding Canary Islands.

Further Details:

After booking with us, we will send you our Welcome Pack which contains information on places of interest in the island of Tenerife.

Additionally, if you are interested in biking, climbing, trekking, windsurfing, etc. we can put you in touch with local outdoor activities companies which can arrange these for you!

Any other queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are here to help answer any of your questions.

There is a second cottage the other side of the garden. We save this second cottage mostly for family visitors. It is unlikely, but there is a chance that you might have to share some of the outdoors with others. To be honest, the there is a lot of outdoor space. So, we very much doubt you would even see other guests around. But, we thought it best to mention just in case… Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towel and linen are included and are changed once a week. Additionally, the cottage is cleaned once a week. All free of charge Other: There are also various other facilities: we have a cot for the little ones, internet access (free WiFi), a BBQ, and garden furniture (tables and chairs, sun loungers, etc.).

delightful and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Located high up in the old town on a quiet street, entry into the property is via a delightful courtyard with dozens of plants meticulously tended by Mrs Garcia, who lives on-site. Rooms are spacious and comprehensively and thoughtfully equipped; the wifi works well, bed is large and comfortable. Guests also have access to the whole roof space which also includes a barbecue, sun room and large terrace with views to the ocean. Round the corner is the local gofio mill, and in town - 10 mins walk - is a very good Mercadona supermarket, which even has a fresh fish counter. Driving to and parking at the property seems daunting at first - narrow and steep streets with labyrinthine one way system, but it was fine and we always managed to park just round the corner. Ideally located to explore the whole island. If you are thinking trying the climb to the top of Mt Teide you must book ahead a Permit from the National Park website (it's free but they strictly limit the numbers), and it's also well worth booking your cable car ticket on-line too.

We had a lovely time at Orange Cottage 2. Mrs Garcia is the perfect host. She is absolutely lovely, so friendly, helpful and caring. The cottage is very comfortable with everything you are likely to need. Mrs Garcia has thought of everything. The gardens are a delight and we spent many happy hours relaxing, eating and drinking in the lovely sunshine with all the beautiful coloured flowers. Heaven...will most definitely go again if only to see Mrs Garcia 💗 Highly recommended.

Great place with right mindset

  • 4 of 5

Stating the obvious - this is not a beach holiday location! Neither is is way out in the country. It is in a courtyard of a townhouse in Granadilla De Abona. As such you will be initially aware of the occasional passing car and you will hear the bells of the church strike every quarter from 8am to 12 midnight. But these sounds soon fade into the background as you relax. This is not a location suitable for those with mobility challenges. But for those who want to walk and explore the hills, back-roads and surrounding villages it is a fantastic location. The beach by the way is a ten minute walk to the bus station and less than 20 min journey away.

The accommodation is everything as described by others. Traditional style with a welcoming host.

We did not hire a car during our holiday!!! No grief or stress or searching for parking spaces. ;-)) The local transport system is amazingly inexpensive, always on time and you can get connections for anyway you would wish to go. The drivers are invariably friendly and helpful. Bus 111 from outside the airport front door takes you one stop to San Isidro. From there walk across the bridge to the high street and get bus 408 to Granadilla station. Walk up the town to Iglesia (Church) de San Antonio de Padua and meet your hostess. Your all settled withing 40 mins of arriving! Others are still queuing for their car! For those wanting to go to the beach El Modano is within easy reach again on bus 408 from the bus station. Bus travel all over and you can find easy apps on line to plane routes and check timetables.

The local Mercado sells all the fresh food you could wish for and does a great line in breads and cakes.

An evening walk up the local hills in the evening gets you fit and rewards you with some great views.

The bed is so comfortable! Then again all the fresh air helps too! The garden smells of fresh flowers and herbs and is a great place to sit out with food and a bottle of wine.

Would we go back? ..... yes we will!

Truly spectacular home, host and experience!

  • 5 of 5

There are some places you go and are very nice. And there are other places that are so special you will remember forever. Las casas naranjas is for sure one we will never forget.

Everything was exactly as shown. The home was sparkling clean, the beds comfortable, the gardens charming, the view spectacular, and Tita, the host warm, welcoming and full of love and light. We miss her so much!

Recommended: Driving over to the beautiful village Masca and relaxing at Playa de la Tejita (next to Medano) in one of the semi circular stone structures (and climbing Montana Roja at sunset and watching the sun set behind the ocean!)

Although we stayed for 9 days and often did not go anywhere because it was so peaceful and serene at the cottage!

Side note: This building is over 150 years old and was an old bodega where wine was made and stored.


Hay algunas lugares que estan buenos. Y hay otros que estan inolvidables. Las casas naranjas es uno que no va a olividar.

Todo es exactamento como esta en los fotos. Limpo casa, camas comodoas, jardines hermosas, vista espectacular, y Tita, la dueno incredible carinosa y lleno de amor y luz.

Recomendamos una visita al puebla Masca y la Playa de la Tejita (a lado de Medano) y subir La Montana Roja cuando sale el sol.

Quedamos por 9 dias pero frecuentamente quedamos en la casa por la pura tranquilidad.

Nota especial: La casa era una bodega que tiene mas que 150 anos.
