    This potential holiday home Tenerife is bathed in a lovely, soft light, as sun doesn't enter directly. Two large windows let us see much of a very big balcony outside.

    The holiday home Tenerife penthouse apartment fetched a buying offer of €125000 late in 2009 despite the recession. Those days are gone.

    This price has never been negotiated by its owners the Tenerife holiday home insider. Why?  They don't want to sell.

    Perhaps, you are surprised, why it is not that cheap... Well, nobody disputes the cost of this home, as the apartment is truly unique. The panoramic views from its veranda are breath taking. There, discover Puerto de la Cruz by the coast in the wide La Orotava Bay. Right in front are the rooftops of Toscal Longuera a special picture of which discover together with Realejos photos.

    Never miss La Orotava the old part of which is very elegant and delightful at a distance of only 15 minutes by car from this holiday home Tenerife. It tops Tenerife towns with Spain Christmas traditions as shown here.

    Peace and privacy is guarantied in this part, as well.

    15 minutes to the Mount Teide Cordilera

    You also see Mount Teide from one side of this rooftop apartment balcony.

    Enjoy sun-ups over the La Orotava valley and bay right by the  penthouse entrance. Sometimes, fantastic La Palma sundowns are glimpsed from the same spot.

    You can't help but looking outside over the balcony when you enter the penthouse. The breath magnificent views usually break all ice with new visitors.

    The natural lights and ventilation in this potential holiday home Tenerife are amazing. No claustrophobia there. That's the feeling you want, when inside in your holiday haven on vacation or living in it all the time.

    Built in wardrobes are so practical

    Wardrobe-design of a Tenerife bedroom

    The spacious bedroom is of course a great plus of the property dubbed Holiday home Tenerife. An experienced carpenter had constructed a solid wooden 2,20m wide built-in wardrobe. One by Ikea of three meter length up to the ceiling covers another wall. The practical timber wardrobe was an inspiration for an alternative one at a Longuera apartment in Tenerife with pool of Los Realejos.

    Balcony plant Whitefly control

    Ornamental plants on Tenerife North balconies are often infested with the annoying White Fly pest.  It has been known since the Sixties as Aleuridicus dispersus Russel, contrary to the bug Leacanoideus floccissimus in the South. The holiday home Tenerife wasn't spared either. Why? indigenous plants should have been chosen for its terrace. They are immune to the bugs.
    Whitefly control with organic eradication tests are done by the government ICIA with little success in all plant sectors. Mind many farmers use insecticides, while the latter is not recommended for balconies. Cut back infested plants, change the soil and give them a good showering often. Apply a bio product to fight the pests.

    Three bus lines and motorway TF5 close by

    Also, this holiday home in Tenerife is conveniently close to two direct public bus stops. Many more are at nearby Empalme. The direct ones connect with Puerto Cruz and La Orotava and its mountain villages while the others lead to Santa Cruz, Icod de los Vinos. Buena Vista del Norte and several other places.
