Lovely atmospheric old house

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean, well equipped and quirkily decorated old house in the little village of Igueste de San Andres. High ceilings keep the rooms cool, and the shady terrace is great for al fresco eating. Pretty garden with a couple of large mango trees.

Our little boy was very impressed with the large selection of toys, and the speedy wifi was an unexpected bonus in such a seemingly remote spot.

We spent most of our time at the lovely beach of Playa de las Teresitas which is just down the mountain from Igueste, nice seafood available at the little beach shacks. San Andres itself is a pleasant town and worth a visit. Although there is a little shop in the village, there is a decent supermarket in San Andres, near the pharmacy .

All in all a lovely stay in a great house in a fab location. Thanks Puri & Jose !

Authentic house with beautiful tranquil garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed some 5 days in the house and enjoyed it very much. The old house has a very spacious living room with matching furniture, old books etc. making it a pleasant and atmospheric place to stay during the day and evening. The main bedroom is equally large and has nice views towards the village and the ocean. Kitchen and bathroom are basic but everything, including the WiFi network, is clean and working well.

The old garden is a delight. Although it is in the middle of Igueste de San Andres it is situated very tranquilly and it is well sheltered. You can sit in the shade or in the sun as you desire and the garden has its own mango trees that are frequently visited by birds and an escaped green-red coloured parrot. It is a lovely place to have a relaxed breakfast early in the morning or enjoy a book in the afternoon after a long walk in the mountains.

The owner is a very friendly lady. Although we do not speak proper Spanish communication with her via e-mail and Whatsapp was pretty easy (with some help from Google Translate). Whereas the description on HomeAway (a translation into Dutch) is a bit confusing, the pictures on the website are representative and basically tell you what you will get.

Within a 100m from the house, there is a small Mercado that sells some bread, cheese, fruit, beer and other essentials. There are only 2 places where you can eat in the evening of which one is the living room of an old lady close to the beach who serves typical Tenerife dishes (no menu card, only the dish of the day). In nearby San Andres there is a very good and pleasant restaurant called La Posada del Pez and also Santa Cruz is reachable within some 15 minutes driving.

For us it was our second stay in Igueste de San Andres. We returned there because it is a great place to stay when you like hiking in the mountains. There are several lovely walks starting in Igueste that bring you up into the beautiful mountains towards deserted old villages (Lomo de Las Casillas) or via a steep cliff passage (not to difficult when dry) towards your own private totally deserted beach. On the way back via a remote and lonely valley you may run into a flock of goats.

Igueste is a good place to stay if you want to make hikes in the remote Eastern part of the Anaga mountains as you can easily drive all the way up via San Andres (TF-12) bringing you towards Chamorga within an hour. In this area there are several well-marked walks into this beautiful part of Tenerife.

Una casa con encanto en un sitio tranquilo, ideal para senderismo. Schönes Haus im Kolonialstil.

  • 5 of 5

Es una casa muy comoda para cuatro personas. Tiene techo alto y puertas, ventanas y muebles en estilo colonial. Es una maravilla desayunar en la terraza al sol y disfrutar de las plantas, flores y arboles. Lo unico que faltaba era bastante vajilla y cubertería adecuado y de buen gusto. Los muebles en la cocina necesitan atención ;). Muy buen sitio. Puri y José, los duenos, eran muy amable.

Das Ferienhaus liegt in einem kleinen Dorf und ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für herrliche Wanderungen. Das Haus ist im Kolonialstil gehalten und hat sehr schöne Zimmer mit hohen Decken und hohen Fenstern, was sehr ansprechend wirkt. Die Terrasse ist ein wunderschöner Ort, um in der Sonne zu frühstücken und die vielen Pflanzen und Bäume zu genießen. Das einzige, was fehlte, war ausreichend funktionsfähiges, geschmackvolles Geschirr und auch Besteck und die Küchenmöbel bräuchten etwas Aufmerksamkeit. Puri und José waren nette und höfliche Gastgeber. Wir können das Haus empfehlen!

En absoluto cumplió nuestras expectativas

  • 1 of 5

El primer problema es que el coche hay que dejarlo a más de 200 metros de distancia, con lo cual, hay que acarrear con todo. Además, a veces nos costaba encontrar aparcamiento cerca de la calle de acceso a la casa. En segundo lugar, la casa está en una especie de urbanización bastante destartalada llena de casas con perros que ladraban a todas horas. O sea que paz y descanso no tuvimos mucha, la verdad. Adicionalmente, había muchos gallos que desde las 5.30 de la mañana empezaban a molestar. Además, se escuchaba a los distintos vecinos. En la casa, el equipamiento deja bastante que desear. El menaje escaso y cada cosa diferente. La cocina no está bien equipada. El baño es pequeño e incómodo, no dispone de bidet y hay agua caliente sólo para una ducha. Y escasa. Luego hay que esperar hasta que el termo vuelve a calentar el agua. La limpieza también dejaba que desear. Tuvimos que mover un sillón y hubiéramos preferido no verlo. No funcionaba la smart TV. Sólo la normal, con lo cual, no teníamos acceso a a las plataformas. Jose nos dijo que sería una avería del proveedor. Eso sí, fué muy amable porque no había el carbón prometido para la barbacoa y se acercó a un súper a por ello. Puri también muy amable, la verdad. Pero lamentablemente, no estuvimos en absoluto a gusto. Eso sí, lo mejor, la ropa de cama. Muy agradable. El cuarto inmenso con muchas posibilidades. Con cuatro mejoras quedaría ideal. Y las vistas desde el piso superior, estupendas. Sobre todo cuando los perros dejaban de ladrar. Aunque en medio de la bahía hay una estructura horrenda que parece una plataforma petrolífera pero nos contaron que es como un astillero donde se reparan barcos. Adicionalmente, hay un escalón para acceder a la casa, que es un peligro. Yo me caí el primer día y casi me rompo las rodillas. En fin, no volveremos. Lo siento Puri, pero como viajera, entiendo que tengo la obligación de contar estas cosas.

Owner's Response: Buenas tardes Belén, Las fotos, descripción y ubicación en el mapa reflejan que se trata de una casa en entorno natural, no accesible para silla de ruedas y sin acceso directo desde la carretera. Entiendo que no tuvieron tiempo de fijarse en esos detalles antes de hacer la reserva. No anunciamos smartTV; la casa sólo dispone de TV por satélite y televisión terrestre. Si encontraron canales extra ha sido por una promoción al cambiar de proveedor, está fuera de lugar que nos llamen la atención públicamente por algo que no ofrecemos. Me gustaría que echase un vistazo a los comentarios de los anteriores inquilinos. Supongo que los standards extranjeros son distintos. Hay quien aprecia o acepta el campo. No pueden pretender que las gallinas dejen de cantar ni que los barcos no atraquen. Son eventos ajenos a nosotros. Está claro que no se siente cómoda y hubiese estado mejor en un hotel urbano. La limpieza corre a cargo de una señora del pueblo. Esta ha sido la única parte relevante de su comentario, haremos todo lo posible en mejorar. Un cordial saludo, Puri y Jose

Eine tolle Atmosphäre

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung hat eine tolle Atmosphäre: Hohe Räume, alte Bäume, Ruhe... ein idealer Ort zum Entspannen abseits des Touristentrubels.

Wir waren mit unseren beiden Kindern dort. Für den Dreijährigen war der etwas tiefer gelegene Garten ein tolles Abenteuer und wir hatten viel Spaß mit den Bodyboard am nahegelegenen Strand Las Teresitas. Der Kleine allerdings, der erst 1.5 Jahre alt war, konnte nicht so gut im Garten spielen, denn die Treppe, die dorthin führt ist an vielen Stellen sehr offen und der hintere Teil des Gartens, der am Hang gelegen ist, endet oberhalb einer ca. 2 m hohen Mauer, die ebenfalls nicht gesichert ist. Da konnten wir den Kleinen jedenfalls nicht allein spielen lassen. Ansonsten ist die Ferienwohnung perfekt für Kinder ausgestattet.

Die Vermietung lief unkompliziert und sehr freundlich.

Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit dort und würden jederzeit wieder dorthin fahren. Puri, vielen Dank für alles.
