I am an astronomer from England who has been living in Tenerife for over 30 years. My wife is from the village of Güimar. She was born in this cottage which belonged to her family, and where her grandparents lived. Her grandfather left her the cottage in his will. After inheriting the house she has modernized it and it is ready for letting.
Why Owner chose Güímar
We have been living in Güimar for over 18 years, where we have brought up our son. We have very warm relations with the district of La Hoya and the kind local people who have known my wife since she was a little girl. The area is spectacular, as Güimar is near the foot of the highest mountain in Spain, Mount Teide, but with great views of the sea and the surrounding country. The local wines, especially the white wine, are a great speciality to be sampled in the numerous local bars and restaurants. The house is quite small, highly suitable for a couple, or a couple with a child, and sleeps up to 4 people.

Clean, well equipped traditional style house, quiet area, great value
Our house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with a nice terrace/balcony on which we could have our breakfast. There were useful supplies in the kitchen such as tea, coffee, sugar, honey and John, our owner had left a welcome bottle of local wine. John also gave clear directions and was very prompt to answer any queries. It was on the edge of the town of Guimar looking out to some farmland and was very quiet. The beds were comfortable. It felt like a proper home rather than generic accommodation and we enjoyed our stay there. Thank you to our host.
You were the kind of friendly responsible holidaymakers who are especially welcome in our cottage. It is easy to be a good host to you, and we would be very happy to welcome you again if you choose to revisit. If you think of any suggestions for improvements we would of course be very pleased to receive them.
Thanks for you kind report.
Sunny Guimar, great property, impeccable host.
We really enjoyed our stay in Guimar. The house was comfortable and very well equipped and excellently situated for exploring the island. We appreciated the supplies that were in the kitchen, including a bottle of local wine and also John, our host's, tour of the town. He returned on the Sunday to show us the local Farmer's market and we had an interesting time chatting over a cup of coffee. We highly recommend this property.
Thanks very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us, and my wife was very happy indeed with the way you left the house so neat and clean. I enjoyed your company, and of course hope to see you again. All the best, John (and Leo)
The stay in this house was very pleasant.
The house is very conveniently located and you can explore the island from there.
It is very well equipped.
The care and support by John and Leo are something special.
We are glad to have met both and look forward to meeting again.
Thank you very much for this review. We did our best to satisfy all your needs, and your report is particularly kind as this was not always possible. We very much enjoyed your company, and would be very pleased indeed to see you again. All the best for 2018. Leo and John
Unique and lovely place to experience a bit of Tenerife life
This traditional village home has been lovingly restored with modern comfort and convenience at it's heart. Everything is meticulously provided for living there fully. There are wonderful spaces both indoors and outdoors with a roof deck, a terrace overlooking the valley all the way to the sea--at the bedroom level, and a small open courtyard on the main level. John is an exceptional host, from the first booking enquiry, he took great care of details, making sure we had good directions and a guide to welcome us to the house. The rest of Tenerife is easy to reach from Guimar. We found we really enjoyed staying close and exploring this friendly village and surroundings. Staying here was an exceptional experience in every way and we hope to return for a longer visit.
It is easy to be a good host to guests who are so friendly and communicative. It was a pleasure having you stay, and we sincerely hope that you find another opportunity to visit us and enrich your experience of the variety that Tenerife has to offer.
Charming village house
The house is in a quiet position with attractive views all around. It is well equipped and furnished and only a short drive from the centre of Guimar where there are plenty of shops and restaurants.
Thanks for this kind summary. We aim to keep improving the cottage as we have been doing gradually since we renovated it. We welcome guests who appreciate the tranquility of the countryside but where they can easily get down to the sea when they wish
Great house, great location. Host out of this world.
Spacious, clean, has everything we need and more. Near to the city if you want that, but quiet and country-like when you get home. Groceries nearby and a wonderful Sunday farmers market.
Thanks very much for your review. One of the pleasures of running the cottage is that one meets a variety of very interesting people who enrich ones life. This has certainly been true of Ray and Kerry Duperron, whose world travel experience gave very agreeable conversation. It was great to have you visit.
