“A cottage in the woods.”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Nestled high up the side of a mountain off the beaten track you will find this delightful cottage, it is a wonderful place and was a joy to stay at.

Sergio was a great host and accommodated our awkward arrival time without fuss. Quickly showing us around and giving us information on the area before departing to let us get settled in.

This place is perfect for hikers and those that wish to get away from the usual southern tourist areas of Tenerife. it is ideally situated to visit the lava tubes or the natural salt pools and is only a quick drive away from anything you may need.

The cottage is done to a high standard and is wonderful on an evening lit up. just after 23:00 when the flood lights go out you are given perfect unrestricted views of the stars that allows this place to be good for not only hiking and bid watching, but star gazing too.

“Great place!”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in this wonderful house for 4 days. I did not want to leave it. This is a very quiet and peaceful place. Photos in the description is very beautiful, but in fact the house is even better. If there is cold in the evening, the heating turn on without any problem and the rooms warms up quickly . The road to the supermarkets in Icod takes a little time. Sergio is very friendly and helpful host. We really want to come back here again.

“Recommendation with 5 stars”
Reviewed May 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in Sergio's house for one week with four adults. It is a wonderful and peaceful place to make holidays far away from the touristic places in the south of tenerife. The location of the house is unique amidst in the pine-tree forest in the mountains. The house is very nice, clean, well-maintained without insects and has a indoor barbecue. Before we arrived we were a little bit afraid of the altitude and temperatures but this was causeless. The temperatures were almost the same as on sea level but in case of doubt there is also a functional heating. You can start hiking directly at the house and it is possible to meet no other persons in the forest for a whole day. Nevertheless it takes just 5-10 minutes by car to arrive at Icod de los Vinos where you can find everything you need. Sergio provided us a very good service and was always available via telephone when we need him for any topics. We can recommend this holiday home to everybody who searches for silence and relaxing. We will come back as soon as possible.

Thank you Ranjit, Veronika, Susana and Arne. I agree with you, our house is a great starting point to explore the northern part of Tenerife, direct access to trails to El Teide National Park and to the main road to get to know the rest of the Island. See you on your next visit to our island :)

“lovely well equipped comfortable cottage”
Reviewed March 16, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We have just spent a week in this super cottage near Icod de los Vinos
It was very clean, well decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It was extremely quiet as at the end of a long mountain road with no other properties very close by - the drive up to the property was great fun although generally had to be undertaken in first gear as very steep in places.
Sergio the owner could not have been more helpful and generally gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble - he met us at a local bar and we followed him to the house. he then carefully explained everything and left us with a complementary welcome basket of juice,wine, biscuits and fruit.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in recommending this charming little house to future visitors to Tenerife who are attracted to quiet country properties.
