Top 13 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Spain - Updated 2024

airbnb Santa Cruz De Tenerife Spain
| 7 min read

Named by a British newspaper as one of the five best places in the world to live in, the province of Santa Cruz De Tenerife in Spain, is located within the Atlantic Ocean, situated off the north-western coast of Africa. Tenerife is an island full of adventures, with the north brimming with life while in the south, the land is almost as barren as to a desert. Santa Cruz has the best of both worlds as it harbors one of Spain’s busiest ports and serves as a major stopover for cruisers to and from Europe and the Caribbean. There are so many places to visit in Santa Cruz, like the famous Auditorio de Tenerife (Auditorium of Tenerife) and the Santa Cruz Towers (Torres de Santa Cruz). With many attractions to check out in Santa Cruze De Tenerife, it’s hard to know where to start! Well, we all got to start somewhere! With that, we have listed the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 14, 2024.

1. Modern cabin located by the countryside (from USD 161)

Relaxing and being one with nature in an ergonomic home nestled in the countryside and surrounded by acres of land would be absolutely amazing! If you share similar sentiments, then check out this next home on our list. It is a studio-type square hut located in the countryside - perfect for a group or family of four. The host also provides 3 sunbeds and a barbecue grill so visitors may enjoy a meal in the yard. The location may seem isolated, but it’s actually situated just 5 minutes away from the city center of La Laguna, and several restaurants are located mere metres away too!
