We had a wonderful, relaxing stay in this lovely cottage. It was very clean, well-equipped and private, despite being attached to the owner's house. Ideally located on the north of Tenerife, great for walking above Aguamansa and Teide National Park. We didn't eat out as the local fruit and veg (including fresh avocados, fruit and eggs from the owner's garden) tasted delicious when eating out on the terrace in the evening, enjoying the view.
The owner was so hospitable and welcoming (and generous with her produce).
Only thing that would have made it even better was if the beds weren't so soft but that is down to personal taste.
Would definitely recommend and intend to make a return visit.
My wife and I spent a month in November 2013 staying in this charming property. We had a fantastic time in this comfortable and easily maintained cottage.
The property is situated in a rural village above Los Realejos. The cottage is located away from a country road – there is no traffic noise at all. Although it is next door to the owners’ property, we enjoyed our privacy and independence. The owners were friendly and provided help with any practical matters when needed. There is ample information about places to visit which proved very useful. The cottage is accurately described and it met our needs perfectly. The living room is very comfortably furnished. Satellite TV ensured being able to watch Premiership football! The kitchen provides every facility needed for a self-catering holiday, with full sized hob and oven, as well as a fridge large enough so that we did not need to shop every day. There is a separate dining area with a full sized table and chairs. The owners had provided adequate cutlery, crockery and glasses. There were plenty of pans for cooking. The bathroom is large and beautifully tiled. There are two bedrooms – a full sized double with a small single bedroom adjoining. The wi-fi worked well which meant we could keep up with family back in the UK. The attractive garden and terraces give every opportunity to enjoy al fresco living when weather permitted.
Our preferred holiday making involves plenty of sightseeing, walking and dining. We would recommend visiting La Orotava, Garachico and Icod de los vinos as the most interesting towns. The best beaches we found were Playa Socorro, Playa Jardin and Charco Viento. All are within easy reach of the cottage. We also liked the yellow sand beach at Playa de las Teresitas, some 45 minutes to the east. A visit to Teide is a must, as are the drives to Masca and Taganana, two very remote villages. Although it was sometimes cool and overcast at the cottage (in November), it was normally possible to find good weather elsewhere on the island.
I would like to thank the owners for helping to make our holiday such a memorable one. I always had prompt replies to my emails in the lead up to our holiday. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to future holiday makers. You will be assured of a carefree holiday in Palo Blanco.
We stayed in this cottage for 10 days and absolutely loved it! The photos demonstrate what everything looks like in reality. This Canarian style cottage has its personality which I liked a lot. The house is full of different little details which make it special and you actually take the place as your “home” rather than a “hotel”. It was very great to have a nice breakfast with a cup of coffee sitting in the terrace and enjoying the sunrise. Lesley has always been very friendly, kind and helpful to us. The house is situated close to all kinds of adventures but of course without a car it would be quite difficult to travel around. There was one thing I was a bit disappointed about – I’m talking about twin beds as I expected a double one, it was the only uncomfortable thing about this cottage but it hasn’t spoiled my total impression and I would definitely recommend it!
We choose this cottage for its quiet rural location and we were not disappointed. The cottage is very spacious and comfortable and quiet... we overslept every day! the garden is lovely with beautiful views. All exactly as described. It is ideally placed for exploring the north of the island.
Thank you Lesley for the warm welcome and your help with recommending restaurants which we really enjoyed!
If you are looking for a peaceful holiday away from it all this is the place.
It has been a great location to start all kind of activities on the island and to come back in the evening after a day full of impressions and adventures, to calm down and to close the day with a glass of your choice outside in the garden, admiring the sunset at the western limits of the Orotava valley. If you choose the north side of the island, the green side, the "right side" of Teneriffa, you know that you cannot spend all day in the sun. But you can be sure that you will have the opportunity to drink the morning coffee and the evening beer outside on the terrace. Great place, well equipped house, quiet surroundings, lovely and helpfull hosts! Thanks Lesley!
We had a very relaxing week here, made to feel at home by Lesley who,from the moment she met us gave us lots of helpful advice and could not have been more hospitable, being available whenever advice was needed. Do try the small local restaurants for the experience and price. I had not been to Tenerife before and am so glad that we came to the North first; much quieter and great for walking and relaxing. The bungalow has all you need and is private despite being close to the owner's house.
