“Lovely Canarian style house”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 for a stay in December 2013
1
person found this review helpful

This house is lovely in the traditional local style, with great terraces (amazing views of El Teide and the ocean) and very well equipped compared to most rental properties we've stayed in, good shower pressure and plenty of hot water. The owners were there to meet us on Xmas Eve and had put up Christmas decorations and a welcome box of essential items that was really appreciated. The decor is completed by Jorge's lovely paintings of the island. Also there are heaters to keep it nice and cozy during the chilly winter evenings. Only downside of visiting at this time of year is that it isn't warm enough to make as much use of the terraces as we would have liked.

This is really well located for hiking up around Teide & the Orotava valley, the weather on this side of the island is less predictable than the south, but it is much more beautiful and lush. Only things to note are that other than the bathrooms there are no internal walls, which was fine for us as a couple but might be lacking in privacy if there are more of you. Also do make sure to get good directions from Karen as the house can be a bit difficult to find, we had some miscommunication and a satnav failure which meant some problems in getting there. But overall I would highly recommend this and hope to come back at some point.

“Superb views from rooftop terrace”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The cottage was excellent value for money; had lots of character and superb views from the rooftop terraces. Friendly reception on arrival. Would stay there again. If you want peace and quiet away from busy resorts this is just the place.

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Superb little villa”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The villa is basically two big rooms. The Kitchen/Diner/lounge has two sofa beds. There is a toilet/shower and a curtain to pull across the sleeping area. Go upstairs (no doors) big double bed wth small 'put me up' and en-suite. There is a lovely terrace with great views accessible from the upstairs bedroom with a further terrace above. So lots of outdoor living. In all honesty as long as you are happy with the open plan layout then look no further. The owners are really friendly and helpful, well equipped kitchen, big bar-b-q on terrace, even soap provided. Had a great week, stayed with a friend and we are keen walkers so a great base for the north walking routes and Mt Teide. Highly recommended.

“What a lovely Ruby Wedding present ...”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Our four children presented us with a folder at Christmas with a photo on the front from our wedding day. Inside were details of Casa Carmela, which they had booked for us for the week including our 40th wedding anniversary. They had also booked flights and a car.
The directions received from Karen on how to reach the Casa Carmela were spot on, as, also, were her directions to the Alcampo hypermarket between Puerto de la Cruz and La Oratavo, where we stopped en route to stock up on food.
The welcome from Jorge and Lala was lovely.
The views from the terraces are fantastic, both down to the north coast of Tenerife and up the hill to Mount Teide.
We enjoyed our stay at Casa Carmela and also walking round Garachico and parts of Puerto de la Cruz, including the Botanic Gardens.

“Amazing house, amazing owners, amazing views!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Both Jorge and Karen made us feel really welcome as soon as we arrived at their house! House is a traditionnal Canario house with a lot of caracter and lovely paintings from Jorge who is a very good painter! So much attention was put and we had free wine, plenty of Christmas sweets to enjoy and the whole house was decorated with a christmas theme :) The 3 terraces are probably the jewel of the house especially the top one, there you can relax and enjoy the sun and look at both Mount Teide and the sea!! So lovely, you can be sure I'll be back!! Thanks so much once again, one of best stay ever :)
