Overview

About the property

Casa Roberto is beautifully situated in a pine forest above El Paso

The property is centrally located on the sunny west side of the island with the impressive mountain scenery of Cumbre at the back and a beautiful view of Adrianetal and the sea. In a few minutes you are in the centre of El Paso, a place where traditions are still maintained, people love festivals and the old men relax at the bar. You should drop in there for a coffee or 'copa de vino' and experience the quiet bustle. It also has everything you need, supermarkets, many small shops, a German bakery, organic food stores, magazines and of course even more bars and nice restaurants with a friendly Palmerian atmosphere.

It takes only 30 min to the capital Santa Cruz and to the airport. To Los Llanos, which is the 'secret capital' of the west, it takes 10 min and 20 min to the beaches. The highway, which connects east and west, leads past El Paso, even the romantic Carretera San Nicolas to Tacande starts off here, which leads to the south.

From the front door, one can start hiking directly or biking (e.g. on the Bejenado), it leads past a posted hiking trail or you can simply stroll off, past the lovingly maintained Canarian gardens and houses, you will find meadows with horses and goats, and the wooded slopes of the Cumbre.

La Palma still holds on to its original setting here, away from all the hustle and bustle and it feels a little bit like being in a different world........

A gem for nature lovers and those seeking peace!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS

  • 1 of 5

You have now read all the good reviews but we think it is only fair to hear the other side of the story from a mature couple. In sum, this was by far the worst experience we have ever had renting a temporary residence and we have traveled the world over.

To begin, the access is up a steep, very narrow, zig zag, driveway, in the center of which is a drainage canal and on the sides is dense vegetation. Once “there” you need to navigate a cobble stone path uphill with many steps to reach home away from home. The “villa” is DARK and DEPRESSING, with or without lighting, with outdated and well-worn furnishings, which are most uncomfortable. The outside seating is unsittable as there is a wooden picnic table for eating and another table made from steel with chairs of similar material. In the rear, there are chaises made of plastic but they do not have any cushions.

Beware, that quite close to the “villa” there is an animal pen with lambs, roosters and hens, all of which STINK, which only adds to the dread, not to mention the constant noise.

Maybe, the absolute worst part of this experience WAS that WE WERE INSTRUCTED TO NOT PUT PAPER IN THE TOILET - so you must bag and dispose of your waste – UGH! We GAGGED and it discouraged us from even using the toilet since it was so disgusting. We would have rather camped at a park site where we could have used an outhouse and saved a lot of money.

Since the only screens are in the bedrooms, there is no way to get any fresh air into the Villa except by opening the doors. Simple enough? But, by opening, you invite every flying and walking creature known to man to enter. Alas, you might ask, what about getting a breeze from a fan – NO SUCH LUCK!

Think about bringing groceries up the tortuous path! Since the water is not drinkable, you must bring in lots and lots of water to drink and cook with – think HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY!

The internet was good inside but did not reach outside.

The refrigerator is tiny and is more appropriate for a one night stand, not a 7 night minimum. Ice? Dream on - no G&T here!

Our advice – AVOID at all costs. We wouldn’t return for Free.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your frank feedback. We appreciate every review we get. We have to apologize that we did not meet your expectations and are willing to improve. Our goal is, that our guests always leave our house perfectly satisfied. Thankfully, until now we nearly always got awesome critics or in the “worst case” a positive feedback with minor hints for improvement. If people indicated us such topics during their stay, we always managed to find an immediate solution. In fact, some points you address are part of our concept. We offer two houses in middle of the nature in a way, which reflects this unique environment: high standard, a touch of antique, genuineness and respect for the nature. We are sure, that´s the best way to enjoy a stay in our house. Other things you comment like the quality of drinking water or the toilet paper are not specific for our house. Fair enough, these are common matters of holiday homes at least at La Palma, probably even the whole the Canary Islands.

Exceptional house, stylish but comfortable with everything needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at Casa Roberta. It's a great base to stay for visiting the national park. Extremely relaxing environment and beautiful too. The manager Mike could not have been more wecolming and helpful, we appreciated this very much. We loved the fire for the cooler evenings in the very relaxing lounge. A great atmosphere overall and we would definitely recommend a stay here.

Beautiful secluded house perfect for walking

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house secluded in the pine forest in a perfect location for amazing walks. The house was very clean and well maintained, situated in the pines and with gardens leading to it of orange trees and flowers. It felt homely, and very comfortable, with good central heating, lots of hot water and warm fluffy towels, which was perfect after our long walks all day. The management team are easily available and helpful, but unobtrusive and you can peacefully enjoy your stay knowing there are people available if you need them.

If you want to walk this is the perfect location, stunning views, peaceful and 2 minutes from the visitors centre where they can help you with maps and advice. Although you need a car, we didn't use the car every day as there are walking options straight from the door, up to Pico Bejenado and the Caldera. We also walked some days into El Paso, the nearest town, just to enjoy looking at all the colourful houses and village life on the way, though can drive in 5 minutes. El Paso has a good supermarket with everything we needed for home cooking.

La Palma is a beautiful island with lots to discover and this is a great central location to get to all parts of the island if you want to explore further than the National Park.

Myself and my partner had such a peaceful holiday, perfect for recharging the batteries, and I would highly recommend Casa Roberto, and would love to stay again.

Perfect Place to Escape to

  • 5 of 5

Accurate description of the location and facilities, photos don't do the place justice although they are beautiful!

Very clean, lovely pine smell, secluded.

Great staff available when you need them but not intrusive.

Bring some warm clothes if you are going during the winter as the temperature drops in the evening.

Loved the tennis court and mini farm.

Fireplace is a real highlight.

Good cooking facilities and towels etc are all provided. We used the washing machine and tumble dryer without any problems.

Definitely hire a car as you'll need it to get about! Good central location on the island meaning it is easy to go in any direction.

Very happy with out stay and would highly recommend!

Der perfekte Urlaubsort für gute Erholung

  • 5 of 5

Ein echtes Erlebnis und der 1. Minute an. Das Ferienhaus bestens ausgestattet, die Lage einfach traumhaft. Die auf der Finca vorhandenen Tiere runden das Gefühl eines echten Finca Urlaubs ab. Herr Schwalbe , der gute Geist der Finca, hat uns bestens umsorgt. So fanden wir bei der Anreise einen nach unseren Wünschen bestückten Kühlschrank vor, da der Supermarkt schon geschlossen hatte.

Unser Fazit : der perfekte Urlaubsort für gute Erholung in herrlicher Umgebung

Rustikales Erlebnis in wunderbarer Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt in ausgezeichneter Lage zur Erkundung der gesamten Insel. Das Innere ist geschmackvoll rustikal eingerichtet- alle vorhandenen Geräte und Installationen funktionierten tadellos- wir fühlten uns sofort wohl und wie zu Hause. Das Haus war auch sehr sauber geputzt. Die Umgebung ist ruhig, der Blick in den unverbauten Wald ist sehr erholsam- das Haus liegt in der Nähe des Nationalparkes und des Hauptkraters der Insel, was dortige Wanderungen erleichtert. Wir haben uns im Haus sehr wohl gefühlt und können das Haus jedem empfehlen, der Ruhe und einen zentralen Ausgangspunkt zur Erkundung der Insel sucht. An dieser Stelle sei auch Herrn Mike Schwalbe gedankt, der vor Ort in jeder Hinsicht um das Wohl der Gäste bemüht ist. Wir werden gerne hierher zurückkommen.

Casa Roberto is beautifully situated in a pine forest right next to the National Park Caldera de Taburiente above El Paso. This lavishly built stone house has many Canarian elements, so the Canary canopies, window and door shapes. With great attention to detail all areas of the house have been designed and implemented in traditional craftsmanship. Casa Roberto is together with Villa El Pinar (see HomeAway # 2110150) on a large, landscaped grounds with various gardens and a private tennis court. Around Casa Roberto terraces and seating is applied, so that you can select all day between shady and sunny places, depending on the sun position and personal preference. A great place for nature and tranquility to enjoy. The five acre, complete with a fence covered terrain offers ideal conditions for a holiday with children. For family members who want to go off and on at a distance, is the developed attic with separate outside staircase available.
