Garachico is a picturesque village situated to the north of Playa de la Arena, approximately 40 minutes drive away. The village was the victim of a violent lava flow from the volcanoes on the island in 1706. This created lava rock pools which are one of the main attractions of the village. Garachico is also home to the Church of Santa Ana and the former Convent of San Francisco. The church had to be rebuilt after the damage caused during the volcanic eruption. The convent is a beautiful example of Canarian architecture with stunning wooden balconies. The convent also houses a small museum. Visitors can also visit the Museo Capinteria Antiga, a little artisan museum situated at the seafront of the village.

Probably the main reason that visitors flock to Garachico is to see the Castillo de San Miguel. This 16th century structure was built to guard against invading pirates and now houses a fabulous rock and fossil collection.

There was very little wanting for this apartment, peaceful, clean, plenty of towels, storage, great views from the veranda beside the pool, which itself was just outside the apartment. It was situated on the first floor and a 5 minute walk into Los Gigantes, parking straightforward. 3 of the days were very windy and the apartment was protected from the worst of the weather. Hard to fault anything, apart from the pool cleaner who seemed to spend much of his time on his phone until well after opening time, and on 2 days the pool was closed for half the day as he disappeared in middle of cleaning it.

It was handy to have the use of beach towels while we were there and not have to pack our own. Nice pool and good to have sunloungers to use. We were made most welcome! Enjoyed Rincon de Antonio restaurant by the marina and the local beach was good for body-boarding in the mornings. Good food at the Fisherman's Inn in the next village, with interesting little fishing museum on the walk over there. Very handy to have Hiperdino supermarket a few minutes walk away too.

                                                                                                      I know it's sometimes a cliche but Nahid & Ross's apartment was faultless in every way. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenage kids) and it really did tick every box we wanted from the location to the facilities and beyond. Similar families - if you're looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable apartment with a lovely clean pool to rent in an easy to find, convenient location then this is the place for you! Walking distance from both Los Gigantes and Puerto de Santiago with their varied restaurants, supermarkets and shops and within 30 mins from Playa de las Americas means there's no shortage of things to do and see. If you hire a car the rest of the island is your oyster and is well worth venturing out to see, the volcanic landscape is stunning! For real Canarian fish restaurants head towards Garachio or Puerto de la Cruz on the north coast (via Masca on the TF346 - but watch where you're going!!), and if wildlife is your thing take a boat trip out of Los Gigantes harbour to see the Dolphins and Pilot Whales - stunning. If however you are after the noisy nightlife/ party atmosphere then you'd be better to look further south in one of the resorts as these would cater better for that sort of visitor. Nahid and Ross were prompt and very polite in correspondence with us before and after our stay, booking was easy and fuss-free, and Jane met us on arrival and showed us round as promised. Overall and in every way we rate this property as 5 star and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family, and would very happily go back again. Thank you Nahid, Ross and Jane!
