A Fabulous comfortable apartment with a lovely spacious garden overlooking breathless views of the Guimar valley, for both its mountains and coast, are simply awe inspiring.
Its location is perfect, for exploring Tenerife North the South,and particularly the Anaga mountain region.Not forgeting Teide national park.
Its also close to Santa Cruz,the capital, with an unbelievable choice of shops ,markets ,auditorium, parks,beaches and also the old capital La Laguna, and towns of Candelaria and La Esperanza.
I Stayed for 4 months,through winter and never wanted my time there to end, It was made particularly memorable because of the wonderful welcome we received from the owners, and their family, and always on hand to help.
I had my own car there,with parking on site which i would recommend but if not there is a bus stop just outside the house entrance near to a small bar and very handy shop.
For what i wanted for my stay in Tenerife this place was simply PERFECT
An idyllic and calm place to stay, this house is nicely furnished and well kept. It has a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, hot showers, and a great view (and sound) of the sea.
The hamlet is nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the southern part of the island, but at only five minutes from the main TF1 motorway, there is no problem getting around. Some of the other properties we researched are an hour of winding roads to reach them, so this really is so excellent for many reasons.
It is also just five minutes car journey from a supermarket, so when we arrived late on Saturday we could still fill the cupboards on the Sunday morning.
It is worth mentioning that there is no vehicle access to this property - there are some 55 steps to descend to get there - so would not be suitable for everyone. We were not disappointed by this, and it added to the character of both the property and the hamlet - but if you struggle with steps (carrying suitcases, shopping, a baby perhaps) then please ask the friendly owner for more details.
The advert also makes no mention of the incredibly fast Internet connection! There is a 50meg cable wifi router all included, great for researching the island, but for those needing to keep in touch with family or work whilst away this is also ideal... Nicolas, you need to add that to your advert!!
The host reacted immediately when we had a leak with the water tank, and the problem was fixed fast.
Our only recommendation for the host is that the lovely soft blankets are great as covers for the beds, but are not ideal for sleeping with. Perfectly warm enough, but we have to wonder how easy they are to wash between guests. They are also very slippy - so we were constantly waking to fight to get the blankets back in the right place. (and the pillows are at the end of their life - had to buy them some more!!)
We were very pleased to find that towels were supplied as well, could have saved a few kilos in our bags if we had known beforehand!! There were many other nice little touches too - a cool box with a freezer full of ice blocks, beach toys for the kids, outdoor furniture for the roof terrace, drying rack for washing, and pleasant friendly neighbours.
We are not in the habit of returning to the same holiday destination, but if we ever come back to Tenerife, we will come back to this house for so many reasons.
Trust me, stop searching and book here!
