About the property

Renovated classic town house in Playa Santiago – the perfect setting for you

This special house of 130 m2 + 120 m2 rooftop - is situated in the middle of Playa Santiago, only 250 meters from the beach. From the rooftop you overlook the sea, the village, the harbor, and the mountains.

The house is situated on Calle La Banda, with a pedestrian street in front and La Banda behind. You can enter the house from both the pedestrian street as well as from the street.

The entrance door from the pedestrian street leads into a patio, here is an avocado tree – sometimes good avocados around Christmas.

From the patio you can go up to the rooftop - or enjoy the house below.

On the ground floor you find a bathroom with double shower, from the patio you can also enter the open hallway leading to all the rooms below. It is rather special with an open hallway, and it gives the house a lot of air and a nice, open feeling. An open hallway is possible, as we on average have less than 3 rainy days a year, and open hallways or courtyards are typical Canary style to create a bit of breeze in the houses. The hallway leads directly to kitchen, living room and 3 bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a double queen size bed and a ceiling fan. Furthermore the house has one more double bedroom with a double queen size bed, a twin bedded room - and a room with a single bed.

A big living room with leather sofas as well as a dining area. Here you find television, dvd, stereo and lots of books. The television is cable connected to the telephone company for cable television as well as internet connected, so feel free to search.

The ground floor also has a complete kitchen with granite tabletop, electric stove with oven, combined fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric kettle, blender, food processor etc.

The rooftop is split in two: the semi covered patio containing a living area - and the sun terrace.

The “patio” is closed towards Calle La Banda and in both ends. In one end we have the staircase towards Calle La Banda and a bathroom with double shower, in the other end a complete kitchen. This area is open towards the sun terrace to give you a complete feeling of open air living and giving you the views.

The kitchen here is also a complete kitchen with granite table tops, and a built-inn gas cooker and fridge. The kitchen has all amenities apart from dishwashing machine and oven, which you find in the kitchen below.

The patio area also have a king size bed, and a dining table that holds 8 persons, when extended.

The other half of the rooftop is open with plants and stunning views. Her you find a dining table, as well as sun chairs.

The rooftop also has a gas barbeque.

When we stay in the house we sleep and live on the rooftop, only using the downstairs when accessing the washing machine. It is a different feeling sleeping on the rooftop – a different sense of freedom.

When you arrive the house will be ready for you, with beds made according to your wish. The house comes with all linen etc, so you just bring your personal necessities. If you need cleaning of the house during your stay, please let us know.

Why The Owner chose La Gomera

Spoil yourself in every way, by living in this truly different and outstanding house. This house is in the old town of Playa Santiago - meaning walking distance to everything, the beach (250 meters), the french bakery, the supermarkets, the harbor, the restaurants, the German dentist....

What makes this house unique

You can live 100% on the roof top - meaning you live under a semi cover, where you have kitchen, bathroom, king size bed, as well as "living room" with table etc - and of course this is directly connected with the sun terrace. Here the tough decisions are: Shall we eat in the shade - or in the sun?

The house comes with 2 mountain bikes.

Very comfortable Spanish house with sea views

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have had several long stays at the house. It's a hop, skip and a jump from the port and convenient to everything in Santiago - the beach, shops, restaurants, bars, La Tecina hotel etc. It makes no pretence to be flashy which is what is so nice about it ....but it has absolutely everything you need - comfortable bedrooms, two excellently provided kitchens, two bathrooms, a fantastic inside and outside roof terrace for lounging, cooking and eating, even sleeping under the stars! It's very well maintained and clean. The owners have always been extremely kind and helpful. It's a highly recommendable property in La Gomera. In our view, Santiago is the nicest spot on the island, with by far the most reliable and consistent weather. You can walk, cycle and swim to your heart's content!

Our house is situated in the middle of the little fisherman's village, Playa Santiago on the south, sunny side of La Gomera - La Gomera being one of the real pearls of the Canary Islands.

La Gomera is the second smallest of the Canary Islands. Although being small the island is extremely diverse, having a dry south side, where the sun always shines, and a north side where it's lush and green - and rainy. On the top of the island we have a National Park - where the only rain forest in Europe is located. The park and forest is a Unesco reserve. Up here it's always rather cold - so do bring a sweater when going. In the park you have the highest point of the island. From the top you can see La Palma, El Hierro, Tenerife, and sometimes even Gran Canaria on a clear day. La Gomera is a perfect place for hiking. 'Little Nepal' hikers call La Gomera. Many of the hikes follow the ancient guanche paths, which the original population of the islands used as their 'highways' when walking from one place to the other.

Other activities: La Gomera is famous for it's wonderful hikes!

Golf: We have a fine golf course approx 1.5 km from our house - with a great wiev to Tenerife and Teide - and the sea.

Diving: You can participate in diving and cayaking arranged by Hotel Tecina.
