“Peaceful, great views, everything we needed was on hand.”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

We were lucky enough to be the very first guests, and everything was brand new, and absolutely spotless, inside and out. We booked last minute, but everything went smoothly, the owner responded to emails very quickly and we were met by an English speaking friend of the owner who lives nearby and is on hand to help with problems.

A must is a decent car - either a diesel or a 4x4, preferably small so it is easy to manoeuvre into the drive from the lane. The finca is located on a narrow steep road, and the car we were given by the hire company was a large petrol 1.2 litre that struggled to cope. Approach going uphill, and reverse into the drive if you end up with a car that struggles with the hill, and then you can exit forwards going straight up the lane. Easy to cope with if you just put some thought into it. You'll soon get used to how to find the place. But! Don't be lazy and assume it will be easy to find on your first day, if you've never been there, if you don't put some effort in before you leave. It is actually VERY VERY easy to find, and is two minutes off the main road - look on google earth and you can spot the pool after a little bit of looking. The owner helped me with this. You can use google earth to help you look at the turnings you need to take off the main route. We found it first time, no stress, no mistakes. But you can always phone the person who will be there to meet you - he's so keen to make you at home, and can drive up to the main road and you can follow him to it. It's not rocket science. The tucked away location is part of the charm, and indeed gives you those fantastic sea views. If you don't want a quiet spot away from it all, then this place isn't for you.

This was our first visit to Tenerife, and we wanted to avoid the resorts to the south, and this fitted the bill perfectly. The Finca is secure, with tall and solid electric gates and decent parking. It overlooks some allotments, so you can while away a few hours watching people tend their crops.

We didn't visit the beaches so can't comment on them, but there are plenty of decent supermarkets with great fish caught that morning - and as tourists we were in the minority among the locals - great! We spent many days walking up in the national park, which was a bit of a trek (just under an hour) but so worth it.

I would thoroughly recommend this Finca to everyone, couples, families and groups. Just watch small children next to the pool as the low wall has a long drop on the other side.

Thanks for a fantastic holiday, if we return to Tenerife we will stay here again.

“Will not come again”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The communication with the owner was perfect. Hand over of keys very good. Finca is difficult to find, you need to enter exact gps position (hours minutes seconds) to find it - garmin gps did not have the address. You need to be good driver - the road is very steep 14 % climb and only gear 1 works.
We came in December and it is probably main reason for poor rating. The house was not in use for at least 2 months. Rooms were not clean, a lot of humidity in the rooms which resulted in mold everywhere - bads, furniture, walls, cookwere
Nights were cold and lining was only for hot months so we needed to buy our own quilts. Gas Heating was provided on request but it did not work properly
I think finca can be ok if you come in summer and when it was in use. The owner should have someone who will make the house ready for guests. I am sure they tried their best but, they do not live in Tenerife and do not have any way to make arrangements when it was needed.
We managed to stay there one week ( because nothing else was available during Christmas). We moved than to another place which is fantastic and started real holiday now. Week before was a little bit survival course.

Management Response

Thanks for the feedback but we can't agree:

1.We provided exact coordinates to our property and we also send a map and asked to print it before you get on the plane
2. We are not responsible for the weather. If you stay in December temperature will be about 10 -15° so it might be helpful to bring appropriate clothing with you. Also we provided an extra heating (which is working!) and the guest consumed 2 bottles of gas (in 1 week…)
3.The rooms where clean our local management cleaned it before they arrived. We can assure that there is no mold in any room, the apartments are newly build last year so how should there be mold?!
4.Guests called our local management in the nights because their rental car broke down, we managed to organize a new one (FOR FREE). We are wondering why this was not mentioned in your review?
5.Left behind a lot of rubbish and our property management had to clean double the hours then it does normally
6.We help where we can even when it’s Christmas we phoned with the guests on Tenerife to help

We appreciate any feedback to improve our service but what is not fair is to lie because you expected something else.

“Best choice for a relaxed and private holiday”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

We had a really beautiful holiday on the finca. The pictures provided by the owner show exactly how it looks like on the finca. It's location is perfect if you want to have a gorgeous view on the Teide, the Atlanic a private pool beside of the hustle and bustle of the south. As the other reviewers described there is a local who is fluent in english who handed over the keys and gave us some instructions but also some directions for shopping and the beach. The inventory was newly and as the owner told us before we were one of the first guests in the house. A washing machine was available but we didn't use it. We had the tower apartment which has a roof terrace. The pool was clean and as the rest of the finca in perfect condition. From the pool you have also a great view and sun all day long. As the owner wrote a car is essential, but everything from Loro Parque, Siam Park, shopping centers and various beaches are minutes away. Before our departure we handed over the keys and got our security deposit back, so we don't have to wait for it.

The service and communication previous to our stay was really good, we had a lot of questions and the owners were really helpful and replied immediately to our questions. At our arrival the handover of the keys happened without any problems, it was also very good that a local English speaking contact was available all the time. The finca has as described an gorgeous view on the ocean and the location is really quiet. The house as itself looks completely new and as really beautiful. The apartments and its equipment are brand new, everything was working perfectly. We used the washing machine twice also an iron and ironing board was available. The kitchen has an induction cooker. Everything necessary accessories such as towels and sponges for the kitchen but also some sugar, oil and basics were already there so that we only had to buy our groceries. Wifi was also available in most parts of the property, which was really useful. The facilities such as the pool and the garden were in perfect condition. The next beach is only a 5 minutes drive by car away and is really clean but not crowded as in the south of tenerife. It was not the first time we spend a holiday on tenerife but this was the best location we have ever been to!
