“MAGICAL, HISTORICAL & SO INVITING”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS HOUSE!

I grew up in a country surrounded by 100's of years of history, something I love, and whilst where I currently live, there is some history, until last week, I did not know just how much...and literally on my doorstep!

Many years ago, around 1846, (the date can be found in the original bodega!) a great, great grandfather built this house...it was passed on through different generations and was even sold to another family by the wife of one of the descendants! The great grandson of the original owner, was able to buy back the house and upon his demise left it to his grandchildren. One of them, over 15 years alongside her husband, lovingly, restored the property with impeccable taste, turning it into a home once again.

The care & attention to detail is incredible. I stood in the kitchen, marvelling how cleverly some modern appliances had been 'hidden' and was told by the owner, who met me at the door, (there is secure off road parking with an electronic gate) that I was standing in what used to be the camel house!!!

The 3 bedrooms are large and well kitted out, plenty of storage space (one king bed, one double & two twins), especially the upstairs master with an ensuite, where from the traditional Canarian balcony you can watch the sunrise.

Traditional Canarian houses were made, as is this, with large stones to create thick walls and I swear, though this is located by the roadside, I heard no cars. These walls make summers cool and winters warm.

There are two outside areas, both charming and one is ideal for BBQ's (there is a large built in one), sunbathing or just chilling whilst smelling the scent of jasmine from the plants planted in different areas. The upper level, accessed through a side door takes you into a small orchard where I saw my very first mini apple tree laden with fruit, there were also oranges, avocados & papayas!

Although the sea is nearby, a pool or jacuzzi would make this a perfect family holiday oasis which I have been informed will soon to be installed...meaning, I will naturally have to return!

Lastly, this bespoke historical place is a home from home..the owners truly will help you with anything. The welcome pack was generous as was the huge bowl of fruit and even I, a lactose intolerant vegetarian was looked after! Also, literally across the road is the great 'Bodega Guiguan'..so no worries about running out of good wine!

P.S. I have already warned the owners I want this place in 3 years time for a special celebration!!!
