Quiet and away from it all
The apartment is very nicely modernised and comfortable. Large comfortable bed, good bathroom, kitchen and small but comfortable lounge. The roof space was large and gets sun for most of the day except that when we were there in march, the sun was lost before sunset. There is a not very pleasant 40 minute walk to the nice nearby small resort and it is possible to walk to the rocky coastline through the banana plantation and a very small nearby beach where you may be able to swim with the right footwear. Main criticism was that the internet is very poor as the modem is next door and there were no essentials provided apart from toilet paper and washing up liquid. It is frustrating having to buy salt and cooking oil and there was not even a teabag there to greet us so on arriving we had to go straight out to the shops. This is a nice quiet hang out but take your own entertainment and unless you want a very quiet holiday, a car is essential.
Thanks for your comments Angie, I truly learn from them. I add a few comments because I´d like that guests that come to my house have absolute knowledge of what they will get for the money.
Most say the area is beautiful for walks nearby and it takes only 10 to 15 minutes to walk to the lovely cove where you can swim if the water is calm or just read a book by the sea.
As said on the advertisement the internet wifi is only available in the terrace and it is a telephone line service, the only type offered in this rural protected area. Sorry about that.
None of these is stated on the advertisement but I supply hand soap, dish soap, dish washer pills, toilet paper, candles. Appart from the wine of my own winery (ATLANTE) no food or beverage are provided. Also for stays longer than a week we change towels and bed linen. In my opinion this is more than average in the area but anyway please next time you come to visit us please tell me your "basics" and I will do my best.
Wohnung entspricht den Fotos und der Beschreibung.
Sehr ruhige Lage und tolle Aussicht. Bei Regen erwies sich die Zweiteilung von Schlafzimmer/Bad und Wohnbereich/Küche als nicht so optimal. Man müsste über eine Außentreppe nach oben. Die Sauberkeit in der Küche war o. K.
Der Vermieter war bei Wünschen sehr bemüht und hilfsbereit.
Schöne Aussicht, grosszügige Dachterasse
Wir waren sehr zufrieden. Das einzige, was manchmal störte, war die Bewässerungsanlage der Bananenplantage. Aber alles in allem ein schönes Häuschen und Dolores, die spanische Perle, hat zwischendurch immer noch alles in Ordnung gehalten. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!!!
Wie zu Hause nur wärmer
Sehr schönes ruhig gelegenes Urlaubsdomizil.
Es ist wirklich alles da was man braucht.
Auf der Terrasse mit Blick aufs Meer kann man abends die Sonnenuntergänge genießen.
Wir haben uns wie bei Freunden gefühlt.
Un logement très agréable, bien situé et bien équipé
Le logement est à 5 minutes en voiture de Garachico, petite ville avec beaucoup de charme. La météo ne nous a pas permis de tester la plage, mais on peut rayonner dans toute l'île sur la journée au départ de Garachico.
Le logement est très agréable, notamment la terrasse, bien équipé, la literie est très confortable. Jesus a répondu rapidement à nos questions et s'est adapté à nos horaires. Merci pour cet accueil !
Although the house is in a rural setting surrounded by banana'll just 5 minutes drive nuclei Garachico and Icod.
Garachico with its important history has beautiful streets and squares where magnificent walks and restaurants to enjoy the local cuisine overlooking the sea. In some parts of the island they are emerging young chefs with a great future and Garachico is one of those places.
And the town of Icod de los Vinos, with many shops where you will find everything you need and tourist attractions such as its historic center and the Millenary Drago.

A 10-minute walk from the house is another of the great attractions of the district of El Guincho, besides the landscape, its secluded bay (Playa de Our Lady of Consolation) with a small pebble beach, solarium and a small jetty. In summer it is a luxury to bathe in this corner of the northern coast and enjoy its crystal clear waters, although its access needs a reform.
In Garachico Caletón or small black sand beaches such as San Marcos in Icod, Buenavista, or Punta de Teno.
Also in the various "pools" of the area and in the Charco del Viento in La Guancha, or in the beautiful Charco de la Laja in San Juan de la Rambla.

Garachico. They take place the week prior to August 16, the day when the moment occurs summit of these parties with the processional transfer of the venerated image of San Roque from his hermitage to the parent parish of Santa Ana, which takes place a solemn function religious. After the act, the procession continues to the bay, from where the maritime pilgrimage departs, with the boats of fishermen bedecked, and the pilgrimage with its carts, animals, rondallas, devout pilgrims, and lovers of popular customs, jealous conservatives of this ancient tradition.
Guincho neighborhood. Its main events take place the first weekend of September, the holidays are celebrated Consolation. The virgin is removed from the chapel of Los Ponte and is carried in procession. From the parish the image of San Jerónimo is taken to the hermitage, located in the current Hotel Rural El Patio, in front of our house.
There are two small food stores in the neighborhood.
But the commercial activity in the area focuses mainly on Icod de los Vinos, there you can find everything you need, there are large supermarket chains with an establishment in the area such as Mercadona or Hiperdino, but also small local shops, pharmacy, etc. It remains a quiet village.
