About Casacosta TenerifeAn ARCHITECT AND A COLLECTOR discovered their future HOLIDAY HOME while on vacation.
They gave it a facelift, stocked it with personal mementos and now a piece of this PARADISE is yours to hire.
Sitting calmly and elegantly next to the sea, Susan Theunissen and Leo Coolen’s updated ‘70s modernist villa was re-designed to be faithful to the true spirit of modernism – and of contemporary interior design.
Filled with antiques, as well as designer furnishings and accessories, it harnesses nature, geometry and the poetics of light and space – as well as the serenity and power of the sea.
(There is also the poriswaterfront, nextdoor, a 3 bedroom house (125m²), smaller but simular atmosphere, with stunning oceanview/ see booking inquiry)
Located in El Poris, 30 minutes from Santa Cruz,the capital of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, the holiday home cast an unexpected spell on Theunissen, her husband and three children. “We weren’t looking to own any property abroad and our image of Tenerife was even slightly negative. But then we came here to visit with friends and explored the island with them.
The late 1970s villa was a diamond in the rough. The eclectic modernist building nestling on the rocky coast appealed to their aesthetic and the location was ideal. But despite its magical charm and Theunissen’s training as an architect, creating their holiday escape would mean embarking on the journey of an extensive remodelling.
Tourist InformationTHE VILLAGE EL PORIS
If you walk to the left and follow the sea at the corner, you walk into the older part of Poris. There is a very nice small bar , cafe del mar for drinks and tapas. (cafe el mar) There are some restaurants (not the best), a second small supermarket, a bank and a pharmacy (all behind the small beach on the left).
Recently there also opened a small place where you can buy and book surf lessons (behind cafe del mar)
It is worth a ride towards the light house and the ruins behind it.
The supermarkets in the village can provide everything you need, but if you want to go to a bigger one, go to El Mercadona on the side of the highway in San Isidro (about 10 minits), they have a good fresh fish department. Or go to the daily market (El Señor de Africa, nice !) in Santa Cruz of the supermarket under El Corte Ingles (the best, but expensive) in Santa Cruz
