Everything we were looking for

  • 5 of 5
Sunset Retreat was perfect for what my wife and I wanted--a quiet place, relatively private (only 2-14 hikers going by a day), a complete kitchen and a view of the ocean. Sunset Retreat had all these--and more including beautiful art on the walls, very clean when we arrived, and well maintained. It also had replacement light bulbs, toilet tissue, etc. Barbara answered all our questions quickly and gave us recommendations for restaurants in the area. It turned out we didn't go out for meals much, preferring to stay home, cook for ourselves and watch the sunsets. Be aware it is a long drive from the harbor--1.5 hours minimum and an hour from Valle Gran Rey--a great place to shop, visit and eat. Because of the narrow roads we wanted to be back to the Retreat before sunset. It is also a bit of a hike from the parking place to the house--something the owners let us know--so you will get your exercise! If you want to get away from "it all"--including not having internet service--I fully recommend Sunset Retreat. We have already booked two weeks for next year! There is lots of hiking available all over the island. The area around Sunset Retreat is particularly rough, but not far away in the park there are much easier trails. By the way, we fully enjoyed the sunsets--each day was different. We even had the pleasure of the full moon. Weather was cool in the mornings and lovely in the afternoons--plan to dress in layers during the "winter". The view of the ocean at the end of the path was magnificent. On the last day we had the pleasure of a big storm--heavy winds and rain. The house stood solid and safe. We used the patio a lot. It had an open area for sunning ourselves and a covered area for reading and staying cool. (Sorry for the late review!)

perfect place to calm down

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 10 wundervolle Tage im Haus "Sunset Retreat" in Taguluche, einem verschwiegenen ursprünglichen kleinen Ort, abseits aller Touristenrouten á la valle gran rey. Das Haus ist sehr schön abseits gelegen, eingerahmt von Palmen, mit einem wunderschönen Garten mit Mango- Zitronen-, Orangen-, Manngo- und Feigenbäumen, einer Bananenstaude u.a., der Knaller ist die tolle Aussicht: einerseits auf´s Meer und eben auch auf die Namen-gebenden Sonnenuntergänge. Wir haben uns aber auch häufig genug den Blick auf die Palmen und Berglandschaft hinter uns gegönnt: das Haus ist total bequem, es hat alles, was man+frau so braucht, darüber hinaus mit netten Details: wir haben uns sofort wohlgefühlt. Wie schon andere Deutsche schrieben: "Ganz egal wieviel Streß und Hektik man mitbringt - die Stille und der Frieden des Ortes werden damit fertig. Die Natur dort ist so eindrucksvoll und überwältigend, dass man es erst nach ein paar Tagen wirklich erfassen kann. Sogar der Wind hat seinen eigenen Ton und erinnert daran, dass wir nur kleine und verletzliche Menschen sind". Genau! - Dann war Barbara wirklich supernett: empfing uns schon am Flughafen auf Teneriffa und machte uns mit den Einzelheiten vertraut. Sie hatte aber fast 1,5 Std. auf uns warten müssen: Negativ bei uns war nämlich der Anfang der Reise auf Teneriffa: wir hatten ein Auto gemietet: leider bei "Goldcar": von denen nun ist absolut abzuraten: unfreundlich, inkompetent, lange Warterei, Abzocke, Zusatzkosten: nehmt unbedingt "cicar", ok.? - aber diese schlechte Emotion war sofort wie weggeblasen, als wir in das Haus kamen... Auch wir werden wieder kommen, sobald das mal wieder möglich ist! - short in english: We have spent 10 wonderful days at Sunset Retreat in Taguluche: 5 stars at all! - could have been hardly better at all !! - important: don´t choose "GOLDCAR" if you´re going to rent a car: take "CICAR", ok? - but this negative emotion was soon blown away because of this house, this location, with this nice girl Barbara: thank you once again!-hope we come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review.
Yes. Anyone travelling to La Gomera from Tenerife should be careful when renting a car. Goldcar will give you a very good quote on internet, but when you arrive at the airport or the ferry terminal to collect your car , they will almost DOUBLE the quote if you say you are travelling to La Gomera. They say that the insurance is not covered. So use CICAR. Their prices are good and you are covered.

Like a little Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Sunset Retreat is one of the best holiday houses we ever had. Quiet, optimal privacy, and a magnificent view on the sea. Sunset retreat is true every evening. You can sit and look for hours, and with a sharp eye, someday you see fountains caused by whale's . The surrounding is overwhelming rough.
The house and terrace is very well equipped, clean, comfortable and tidy and Barbara is a good hostess. The garden with fruit trees (mango, banana's, avocado, and orange) and nice roses and herbs makes this place extra attractive
We agree with the favorable reviews of other guests.

peace and silence

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 2 Wochen im Haus "Sunset Retreat" in Taguluche. Das Haus ist sehr bequem und es gibt dort alles was man braucht. Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist wirklich unglaublich und immer neu, egal ob es Abend oder Morgen, Tag oder Nacht ist. Ganz egal wieviel Streß und Hektik man mitbringt - die Stille und der Frieden des Ortes werden damit fertig. Die Natur dort ist so eindrucksvoll und überwältigend, dass man es erst nach ein paar Tagen wirklich erfassen kann. Sogar der Wind hat seinen eigenen Ton und erinnert daran, dass wir nur kleine und verletzliche Menschen sind. Wir werden wieder kommen! We have spent 2 weeks at Sunset Retreat in Taguluche. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The view from the patio is really amazing, no matter if it is morning or evening, day or night. The peace and the silence there brought us down from every kind of stress we came with. The nature is so impressive and overwhelming that we needed a few days to get along with it.
Even the wind has its own sound and reminds you, that you are a small and vulnerable human being. We will come back!

Sunset retreat April

  • 5 of 5
We had a glorious time at sunset retreat: walking, lolling about in the sun, painting, swimming at the beach, being driven to the beginning of truly magical walks by Tito, the wonderful local taxi driver, and picked up, sore legged but proud at the end of them. Tagaluche is such a pretty village, from which a couple of great walks start, and la Gomera is just stunning. We'd all happily return. Thank you Jose and Barbara.

Total peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
Great place to really get away from it all. Comfortable and peaceful but always something interesting to look at. Friendly village but very quiet and a long walk up from the house. We went to La Gomera for the walking, which was sometimes rough and difficult. I would call it challenging but you don't have to walk. We also spent days lazing on the terrace,reading, which was wonderful.
Visited the bigger resorts on the island, which are not very big, and in January not very busy, but found some really good, and inexpensive, restaurants
It is very rare to find a holiday home that is really a retreat but this was it and the sunsets were spectacular.

Completely unwind in the special atmosphere of Sunset Retreat. No cars or traffic, not even pavements or street lights, within 200m of this rural house. Once you arrive it doesn't take long to get into 'Taguluche Time'.

The days can be spent reading on the sunbeds in the completely private terrace, with outdoor shower to cool you down, or a short walk down to the sea for a swim. The food shop is in the next village, so go prepared with plenty of food to last a few days.(spices, salt and pepper,oil, filtered water ,tea, coffee and toilet paper provided ) The sunset and following night skies have to be seen to be believed. If you feel like exploring there are plenty of walks, of various levels of difficulty, but all have great views of the sea, volcanic barrancos and vegetation. There are 2 small beaches, one of rocks and the other of black sand. Take your snorkle or go fishing.

Any time of year is perfectly warm in the Canary Islands.

Sunset Retreat is waiting for you!!!!!

Other Activities: bring your walking boots and enjoy the hiking

Notes:
A large house, well lit with super views, surrounded by fruit trees, and palm trees. Amazing sea and mountain views, this house is comfortable and intimate, away from any urban noise. Nobody over looking the terrace, and no neighbours for 200m. In ten minutes you can walk down to the sea. The area is volcanic and the foot path down to the house is not a man made path, but a natural footpath with rocky steps ,earth and grass to walk along. The walk is about 300m and uneven under foot. You should wear good trainers or walking shoes,and go carefully if you are not used to walking. There is no wifi service in the house, but if you go to the Bar/Restaurant in the village there is wifi connection. You have to ask for the code at the bar.
