Fabulous place. NO privacy
Every thing you could need was supplied in the casita but constant walkers and hikers in front by the sea and on the walkway above the cabin led to no privacy at all. 15 min walk from parked car to cabin with 47 steps!
A charming and peaceful oceanfront retreat in Tenerife
This was a wonderful oceanfront house rental that was perfectly situated away from the touristy areas of Tenerife. We stayed here for a week and was able to drive to the house from the south airport quite easily from the motorway. The emailed directions to the house from the parking area were easy to understand and the walk to the house is very safe. Igueste de San Andres was a wonderful location to stay in for our first trip to Tenerife and we didn't have any trouble driving to our day trips to Los Cristianos, Mt. Teide, Santa Cruz, Las Teresitas beach, and the botanical garden in Puerto de la Cruz. I definitely would recommend renting a car to reach this location and explore the island. We also spent a day driving through Taganana and other mountain villages to observe breathtaking views from the Anaga Mountains. The kitchen is fully functional and we also used the washing machine twice. Our welcome basket upon arriving after midnight was a wonderful surprise, as well! We will definitely miss having our morning coffees overlooking the ocean and trying our luck fishing outside our front door. We hope to return soon!
A wonderfu,l off the beaten path beach house
This place is clean and lovely. There is a large patio with a table and chairs, lounge chairs outdoor shower and shade. There is a small garden area behind the patio with herbs, papaya tree and other plantings. The house sits about 30 feet back from the ocean. The managers Ana and Doris are very responsive to questions and were super helpful with all inquiries. They recommended restaurants and were a great help when I left a credit card behind on accident. I recommend their rental to everyone able to walk the distance from the end of the road to the house, which is approximately 0.25 miles. It is definitely worth the walk.
This is the most magical place we have ever stayed. We are coming back next year because we fell in love with it. We went to sleep each night to the sound of waves on the beach in front of us; woke to views of Teide from our terrace; and savoured the tranquillity. The cottage is very well-appointed and comfortable, and so romantic. We had everything we needed or could have hoped for - thank you, Doris!
Drive east from Santa Cruz until you pass the last town and a glorious white beach, take a narrow road clinging to the cliff edge
with a castellated parapet looking like the great wall of China disappearing into the distance. Arrive at a small hamlet at the end
of the road, park and take a winding path next to the Church which leads you through the last of the houses to the bank of a storm
river and finally to the sea and a Tapas bar, and when the path runs out cross a short stretch of black sand to La Casita de la Playa.
The house is ideal accommodation for two, with a great view of the storms over Gran Canaria. The friendly family who run the
Tapas bar provide good company, beer and top quality meals which they deliver to La Casita, and the delightful owner, speaks
English and drives like a well known Spanish racing driver when delivering your forgotten passports to the airport.
Altogether a smashing experience, my only regret is that in writing this other people may book and deny us a second opportunity
to experience the calm on the other side of the back of beyond.
Beautiful, Friendly, quiet and Comfortable
This magic little cottage is situated with the sea right outside the front door and a spectacular mountain behind. We were there in January, perfect weather, not too hot and lots of sunshine, in fact a whole week of it. Once your there, you need not leave (if you dont want to) there is a little shop in the village, a local bar (Oscar's) with awesome mojito's and Mama Esta who provided the dinner each night (this was optional but we would definately recommend it) There is also a restaurant in the village but we never tried it. If you tire of the volcanic beach which is within walking distance the town it is only a 20 minute drive away, and there is a friendly bus service. The road between town and the village is quite visually spectacular, lots of ups and downs and tight bends but newly laid and along the cliff edge. Worth a drive out even if you are not going into town. I have only good things to say about our weeks visit, we loved it and will be returning. If you can speak Spanish it would help but we know very little Spanish and managed to get along just fine.
The small picturesque village is located on the coast of the Nature Reserve Anaga and at the end of a road that leads from the beautiful beach of Tenerife, Playa de las Teresitas. Within the town you are moving only on footpaths. Divided by an evergreen Barranco with predominantly mango and banana crops, the village extends to the pebbly beach. Here you have the feeling that time has stopped. Protected by the Anaga Mountains and the south-east orientation, it has a mild microclimate that corresponds more to the south of the island. Hiking can be directly from here in a northerly direction into the Anaga mountains or in an easterly direction to Playa de Antequera. Basically, the Anaga Mountains applies with countless tours as Highligt for hikers on the island. Due to the different flows and located about a 10 minutes walk from the house you will find a lonely beach with fine sand and protected by a bay. Just 3 km away is the nudist beach 'Las Gaviotas' and 6 km away is the fishing village of San Andrés with the famous Coast palm beach 'Las Teresitas'. The contrast is the nearby capital of Santa Cruz with a diverse cultural offerings and the many shopping opportunities.
