We've just had another wonderful holiday at Casa Helen, and are looking forward to staying again next year!
'Better never stops' with Helen and Toni; the improvements they have made are fantastic!
The new covered area is an excellent space in which to eat, relax and find shade from the sun, or to shelter from the rain.
There is also a new awning which gives an additional shaded area, if needed.
The new sofa in the lounge adds a further level of comfort and relaxation.
We spent a lot of our time relaxing and eating-in at Casa Helen, but there are plenty of cafés and restaurants in El Sauzal. It's a great base from which to explore Tenerife.
It's lovely to end the day, looking at the sunset over the sea, from the balcony. It's a very special place...
Helen and Toni are perfect hosts: absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them! We can truthfully say, staying at Casa Helen is simply the best!
Thank you very much, Helen and Toni for another wonderful stay and more special memories.
We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week hoping for something relaxing to escape from the stresses of day to day life and we were not disappointed. This villa is extremely beautiful and very well situated. The pictures do not do it justice to be honest. I was picking my mouth up off the floor when we first got there.
You have everything you need and more. Beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and all of the utensils you need for cooking etc. There are books and games available to you and television for when you need to escape the heat for a bit. The additional games room was a good treat. WiFi worked perfectly too.
The pool is amazing, I'm 5ft 3 and I can just about keep my head over water standing. It was so nice to cool down after a day of sunbathing. We love having bbq's and loved cooking and eating outdoors.
The host's were fantastic and honestly didn't want for a thing! We received a welcome pack which was well received because we got there quite late and didn't fancy cooking too much so had pizza and champagne from our pack to start us off.
We had a wonderful time and honestly would return to this villa again in a heartbeat.
Thank you so much for having us an making our stay amazing.
After reading all the reviews and looking at the pictures on tripadvisor we booked a week at Casa Helen during February 2017. We were very impressed with the villa and all the reviews are true and in real life the villa is better than the pictures. Helen and Toni are great hosts and their hospitality was superb. They obviously take a great deal of pride in the villa and are constantly updating and improving it. The more than ample outdoor furniture is of excellent quality and the recently added roof over part of the outside area was very useful during our stay as unfortunately it rained but would be welcome in the sunshine for shade. It is the best equipped villa we have ever stayed in, beds were comfy, and everything was in working order and spotlessly clean. The welcome pack was great as was the bottle of bubbly also the cupcakes and wine later in the week. It is in a quieter part of Tenerife but if that's what you want but still be within driving distance of larger towns and beaches then this is definitely the villa for you. We cannot recommend it enough.
Casa Helen is a very comfortable and extremely peaceful property just outside the centre of El Sauzal, a lovely little town along the north-east coast of Tenerife. My friend and I rented this property for 15 days over Christmas and New Year. The property itself is a 'real home', comfortable rather than flashy and equipped with everything that one would want (and more) for every day needs and normal functioning. All English TV channels and wi-fi are also available and well functioning. The outdoor space is large, pleasant, well equipped and private enough. The views from the property and surrounding areas are superb! The centre of El Sauzal is an easy few minutes drive from the property and offers a reasonable number of formal and informal restaurants and bars. Larger towns (like Taraconte), which offer better shopping facilities, are a little further away, but still only within minutes by car. The landscape is very hilly and provides plenty opportunities for walkers to explore the many surrounding areas of natural beauty. The coastline is impressive, powerful and extremely rocky. This makes it difficult to reach by car, although walkers will be very well reward it by it. From what we had read about Tenerife, we expected the north to be significantly colder than the south of the island. However, with the exception of a couple of days, we had splendid and very warm sunshine throughout. For those who prefer a property away from the more touristic areas, this is paradise. However, nothing is too distant from Casa Helen, including the busier south of the island, which can be reached by car within an hour or so. For us, though, the cherry on the cake with this rental were the owners. Unusually, they managed to balance warmth, availability and friendliness with appropriate degrees of professionalism and discretion. From the start, they were exquisite hosts: helpful, courteous and pleasant way beyond all reasonable expectations; so by the time we left we felt a real sense of warmth and gratitute towards them. Thank you both so much, Helen and Toni!
From the start we had a good feeling about our choice because the communication with Helen was really helpful. On arrival we met Toni, Helen's husband who had thoughtfully arranged some pizza in the fridge and a bottle of chilled wine as we didn't arrive until very late on a Sunday night.
Casa Helen really does have everything, very comfortable beds, fully fitted kitchen with every conceivable appliance including a wine fridge, dishwasher, two coffee machines on top of the usual kettle and toaster. It was really lovely to arrive to find tea,coffee, sugar, salt and pepper already for you, the list is endless. There is so much to say about Casa Helen and it's owners I would be here all day. Of all the things I loved about Casa Helen the Pool and view from the patio just tops it all, we came with thoughts of driving around the island everyday but in fact we really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the patio relaxing in the sun. We want to come back next year. If you want anymore information do not hesitate to contact us vie tripadvisor,
