Long story short: the house is absolutely amazing, great architecture design with stunning ocean view. Jorge is a very attentive and hospitable host. And the location is perfect for exploring the island, but you do need a car.
However, this story deserves more details. So please take your time and read on. As already written the house is very beautiful, on one hand unique, yet fitting in perfectly. It has been beautifully renovated with great use of natural light, it’s nicely decorated, minimalistic with lovely attention to details. I love the architecture and interior design of the house so much, I'm seriously considering to hire Jorge to plan my own house. It looks even nicer than in the pictures. The highlight of the house are the two terraces on the top, one facing east side and has fully open view of the ocean and the other one in the opposite direction, so you can enjoy the sun in the afternoon as well. Rooms are very spacious. The house comes with almost everything one needs in a home away from home: fully equipped kitchen, heaters; hairdryers, WiFi; a flatscreen with Netflix (although we only managed to watch one film in 10 days I was there - too many beautiful places to visit on the island) etc.
San Juan de la Rambla is a lovely little gem (don’t miss out on visiting Charco de la Laja, natural pools on the other side of the village, 20min walk). Very relaxing environment completely different from the busier areas of the island. One the one hand it is a great place to relax, while on the other it is a great base to explore the island, with the nearest lively city Puerto de la Cruz (park Loro, nice beach and overall great atmosphere) only 10 km away. It's also conveniently close to Anaga Park–Mercedes Forest (50km); Teide (50km), Masca (35km), Buenavista del Norte & Punta de Teno (25km), Garachico (15km)… Needless to say that we loved exploring the island very much and after long days of wondering around it was always nice to come back to our lovely temporary home in Las Aguas.
Jorge proved to be a great host. He welcomed my friends at the beginning and kindly offered to do groceries for us. He also provided us with invaluable local knowledge and tips and kept us informed on local customs and events while we were there. Since we were the first guests to stay at the house, there were a few hiccups with water and electricity, but Jorge was very agile and responsive and together we managed to sort everything very quickly.
