A beautiful house in the hills overlooking Puerto de cruz

  • 3 of 5

When we first arrived at night it was cloudy and cold. The inside temperature of the house was 18 degrees. Once we worked out how to turn on the heating this helped! The temperature and weather improved over the week and this was when staying in the casa became much more enjoyable. The house itself is lovely with great views and all possible mod cons you can think of. We never met Lesley but she was contactable when needed. I would recommend this house especially to hikers/ people who want to be away from it all as it is quite far away from Puerto de la cruz and bars/restaurants. Although this is a nice house I wouldn't go back at this time of year purely because it's quite a bit colder than i expected - about 4 degrees colder than the coast. Everything else was good.

Quiet & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was as good as we had hoped, spacious, well furnished and well maintained, we had no issues while we were there, but have no doubt that they would of been dealt with immediately, if we had.

If you are looking for a quiet base, away from the towns, I would not hesitate to recommend it.

A few points worth noting, temp is 4-5c lower than in the town below, so, if cloudy, can be quite cool to sit outside. Only English language channels are CNN, Fox News and BBC world news.

Thank you Lesley, for a wonderful stay.

Lovely little hideaway with everything we needed to have a relaxed holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Property was ideal for us, comfortable and well appointed with everything we could have needed. Well situated for exploring north Tenerife, although some of the steep roads a bit scary. Top tip s to get a proper road map and not rely on GPS or google maps as they will take you the steepest hills. Driving generally fine though.

House itself is in a wee compound so felt very peaceful, lovely views over Puerto while sitting in back garden. Avocado trees and grape vines all around.

Previously the owner had stayed in house adjoining but this was now rented out. Lesley did come to see us and gave us excellent tips and helpful info and the small issues we encountered while there were immediately dealt with when we contacted her. She was very helpful in emails before hand as well.

We never made it up Mt Teide due to ice and snow ( we were enjoying 20-25 degrees over Xmas) and also didn't have time to do some other things we had planned so we definitely want to return toN Tenerife. We visited a resort ( Los Gigantes) for a day and it was fine but not for us, so much more to he island than what the resorts offer. We would definitely stay in the Puerto area again.

A beautifully equipped cottage with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

I had a peaceful and quiet holiday which was just what I wanted. The cottage is set in beautiful surroundings with wonderful views. It is vital to have

a car to access the island.

The cottage had everything you need and was very comfortable.

Rural quality

  • 5 of 5

An excellent holiday cottage next to the owners property . Secure , good facilities and excellent views . Lesley was a superb hostess .She was very helpful but only when asked .

The directions were good and the area interesting .

We ate in and ate out to a high standard

The only improvement I would suggest is a large double bed rather than two singles .

Nevertheless , I have already recommended the property to relatives and friends .
