Quiet, hot, romantic.

5 of 5
Delightfully romantic. A relaxing, quiet spot with a pool and shady spots. Off the beaten track but within access of beaches (if you want) and the night life of Los Christianos. We would certainly return! We stayed 23 June for one week.

Great chalet with most of the luxuries

5 of 5
The host (Elke) was very welcoming. We missed the turn and could not find the place so she came to find us. She was thoughtful about our little one and brought some toys. We loved the house ans the area. We found the swimming pool kids friendly and recommend hiring a car so that you can make a base here but explore what the Tenerife has to offer. A lovely chalet and we are already considering for our second retreat here at Poris De Abona. Danke schoen Elke Du warst ein toller Gastgeber. (Nepalese family)
