L'appartement est très propre et bien équipé avec une terrasse agréable (avec en plus un barbecue à disposition).

Logement à recommander pour un séjour de qualité sur l'île de Tenerife :)
Lovely stay in Santa Maria del Mare, spacious apartment, lovely terrace and hot tub, we didn't have a car but didn't need one as the bus service was so good, pick up a Bono bus card and you will save a few quid. Maria was very helpful with any queries, only niggle was that it was fairly cold whilst we were there so a little heater in the cooler months would be helpful. I would recommend this apartment if you want to be away from the tourist scene and in the real Tenerife. I would go back.
Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung, angenehme Lage, kein typisches Touristenviertel(was ich als sehr positiv empfinde) Einkaufsmöglichkeiten keine 5 min zu Fuß entfernt. sehr freundliche Gastgeberin,die einem jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite steht. sehr empfehlenswert!

We kwamen in het huis. Op de deur hing een hart met daarop onze namen en de woorden: Hartelijk welkom in jullie tweede huis.
Op de eettafel stond een mandje met koffie, thee, suiker, enz. Dat geeft een welkom gevoel. De wifi code lag op tafel, op ons bed lag een chocolaatje met de woorden: Sweet Dreams. Je voelt je dan heel erg welkom. Alles was keurig verzorgd. Je begint dan blij aan de vakantie! 's Avonds kwam de gastvrouw. Ze gaf informatie over de omgeving. Ze liet ons de twee terrassen zien waar we gebruik van mochten maken. Een fantastisch dakterras!
Estuvimos tres amigos disfrutando del carnaval de Tenerife en el apartamento de Maria Jose. Una experiencia muy agradable: la casa limpia y con todas las comodidades y la anfitriona muy atenta. ¡Sin duda muy recomendable!

About the Host, Maria Jose
Me encanta viajar, de ahí que mi lema es tratar al huésped cómo me gustaría que me trataran a mí..
Llevo el Turismo en la sangre: por haber nacido y vivido siempre en una isla cuya fuente principal de ingresos es el Turismo, por haber crecido y pasado mi adolescencia siempre rodeada de turistas, al coincidir mi infancia y adolescencia con el boom turístico de la isla. Mis primeras amistades y compañer@s de juegos fueron turistas. De ahí que, pretendo contribuir, en la medida de mis posibilidades, a que el slogan turístico "Tenerife: La isla amable" no sea una mera declaración de intenciones, sino una realidad.
Modestia aparte, conozco prácticamente casi todos, por no decir todos, los atractivos y atracciones turísticas de la Isla, pues siempre me ha gustado hacer turismo en mi propia isla, a diferencia de otros residentes canarios que nunca han visitado ciertos lugares por considerarlos destinados a los turistas. Por poner un ejemplo, llevo visitando el Loro Parque desde que apenas tenía cuatro loros en sus comienzos, en cambio hay personas de mi isla que ni siquiera han ido una vez.
Vivo en una isla volcánica, por tanto rodeada de mar, de ahí que en una de mis propiedades me haya inspirado en el Teide, en nuestro volcán por excelencia, para su decoración (en Santa Cruz de Tenerife) y en la otra propiedad me haya inspirado en el mar, decorándola con motivos marineros, pero sobre todo invitando al huésped a descubrir Tenerife bajo el Mar, facilitándole la práctica, el descubrimiento o iniciación en un apasionante deporte como es el Buceo.
Promocionando la práctica de este deporte, animando a descubrirlo y a que disfruten de la experiencia, por eso colaboro con dos Centros de Buceo, uno en el Sur y otro en el Noroeste, ambos de dilatada experiencia donde podrán realizar Cursos, Bautizos o Paquetes de Inmersiones,
