Casa Bencomo fuses contemporary architecture, designer furniture, and luxury interior design inspired by the modernist masters of the 20th century.
Situated in Santa Cruz de Tenerife’s bourgeois neighbourhood El Barrio de los Hoteles-Pino de Oro, known for its eclectic 19th and 20th-century architecture and renowned urban park Parque Garcia Sanabria.
Built in 1930 and fully restored in 2018, this three-story luxury home rental townhouse blends indoor and outdoor living spaces and transmits a feeling of serenity with high-end design in harmony with the home’s original modernist architecture.
The elegance of the Casa Bencomo is defined by its balance of clean lines, natural light that pours through and the high-quality natural materials use to create its timeless beauty.
Each element of this luxury home rental has been designed with simplicity and ergonomic principles in mind.
Ground floor - entrance
Step into Casa Bencomo and the first thing you will notice is the original modernist staircase that curves up all three stories of the home. The asymmetric teak wood curved banister reenforces the elegant aesthetic of this 20th century modernist luxury home rental. Sunlight floods the entrance from the solarium on the roof terrace.
Concrete flooring runs through the ground floor of the home contrasting with the stark white walls and high ceilings and original Terrazzo stone staircase.

Living and dining room
Through the glass panel French doors into the light-filled living and dining room with a low modular sofa by Spanish luxury furniture designer Sancal and a curation of 60s and 70s vintage and modern designer furniture.
The large oval dining table, a patent furniture design by Olga Perez, is longing to be used by a small group of friends or family to enjoy the intimate setting for dinner and drinks, well into the evening.
Swing open the patio doors and let the cool breeze from the garden flow into the house.
SMEG oven, premium induction hob set into a marble worktop, fridge, KRUPS coffee machine, Miele dishwasher, and an eclectic collection of artisan and designer kitchenware from around the world make cooking in the kitchen a pleasure.
Bi-folding glass panel doors take you from the kitchen to the large patio and tropical garden, where you can dine alfresco with the sound of the wind rustling in the giant banana leaves.
Relax with an aperitif in the AA butterfly chairs by Airborne, soaking up the warm sun, and then cool your skin under an outdoor shower fountain.

The local area - Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Casa Bencomo is situated in one of the most privileged areas of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, El Barrio de los Hoteles-Pino de Oro.
Adored for its historical architecture, you can trace the work of architects such as Mariano Estanga, Manuel de Cámara, Antonio Pintor Ocete, Domingo Pisaca, José Blasco, José Enrique Marrero Regalado and Miguel Martín-Fernández de la Torre.
Walk 50 meters down the road and you will arrive at the impressive Parque García Sanabria, the largest urban park in the Canary Islands. The park staged the International Exhibition of Street Sculpture in 1973 and thirteen of the sculptures still adorn the park. Parque García Sanabria was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in the Canary Islands in 2016. Enjoy a glass of Tenerife wine in Strasse Park bar and terrace, which is located in the middle of the park.
Casa Bencomo is in walking distance many of Santa Cruz de Tenerife’s finest restaurants, including Restaurante Aborigen Cocina de Archipiélago, Noi , Etéreo by Pedro Nel, Kazan (Michelin 2020), Nielsen, Sagrario, Solana (Michelin 2020), Jaxana and El Aguarde Restaurante.
There is a lot to explore in Santa Cruz de Tenerife for history and art lovers.
TEA Tenerife Espacio de las Artes is worth a visit to admire the building itself. The design, by Swiss architects Herzog and Meuron along with Virgilio Gutiérrez from the Canary Islands, focuses on a series of diagonal elements so that the public space penetrates the building and converges in the courtyard. TEA Tenerife Espacio de las Artes displays exhibitions by local and international artists, there is an independent cinema that shows films on the weekend and a public library with free WiFi and a study area.
We also recommend a visit to MUNA Museo de Naturaleza y Arqueología, where you can learn about the history of Tenerife and its aboriginal Guanche people. We recommend lunch in the restaurant Mues.ca, el Gastro del MUNA.

Casa Bencomo is a jewel, a modernist house from the 1930s renovated and furnished true to its original spirit with a lot of taste and effort. The house is spacious and even has a proper office that allowed us to work comfortably when we had to. We loved the patio, the solarium with a cactus garden, as well as the overall location next to a big green park.
