Guestbook comments from the owner

A new experience for us that proved to be a huge success. We loved the cottage, clean and comfortable. Lazy days around the pool and relaxing BBQs, what more could you wish for! Sarah and Nigel, Kent.

We enjoyed our stay, the cottage is very cosy. The colourful, spacious, private garden and pool were much appreciated. We will be back. Dirk and Linda, Belgium.

We came to a lovely 'home from home'. Although your site photos and details are attractive (thats why we choice here) to see it in real life is far better. We have stayed in 5 star hotels that do not come close to Finka 18.

Bob and Chrissie, Guernsey.

Wonderful, secluded villa with great view

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the villa. It's perfectly sized for a couple with a cozy living area/kitchen, large bedroom and bathroom, all with vaulted ceilings. The bedroom has fantastic view over the terrace and pool to the valley below and the sea in the distance. Being woken by the morning sun was a welcome change to the 6am work alarm. French doors lead onto the patio, great for breakfast and BBQs.

The outdoor space is really quite extensive. It's secluded and quiet and the only folk you may see are the very friendly owners who live the other side of the driveway. The owners have a separate entrance to their property and in no way spoil the villas seclusion.

We used the villa as a base to explore the islands beaches, villages and snorkelling sites but it is perfect for those who would want to spend the day by the heated pool. We spent a week over Christmas and the pool was warm enough to enjoy.

Overall I would highly recommend this villa for a quiet, private holiday away from the crazy tourist resorts.

A break above the clouds!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely environment, up a tortuous road, and often above the clouds that roll off the Atlantic. Your hosts will help you out with great information about the area that you ignore to your detriment - (Farmers Market Saturday & Sunday, use it, stock up on fantastic local food for the week) - at the same time they are very discrete and leave you to get on with things! The finka is fantastic and just the right size for two to feel at home without being crowded. We especially enjoyed the pool and sun-bathing area with the many lizards running about. Brilliant!

Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a holiday in this gorgeous villa which "ticked all our boxes" and more. This really was a lucky find and very good value for money. The proprietors were extremely hospitable and ensured we had everything we needed. The situation of the villa was perfect - we prefer staying out of town, and this was very peaceful. The villa had a lovely, warm swimming pool for our exclusive use with plenty of areas to sit and sunbathe or eat. The villa was also spacious and very well-equipped. It will be very difficult to find another holiday property which can compare to the quality we found here for the price. We would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who is looking to rent a 1-bedroomed villa in Tenerife.

Zeer goede prijs-kwaliteitverhouding!

  • 5 of 5


• Verrassend rustig!

• De honden uit de omgeving hoor je buiten wel, maar in het huis niet.

• Ruim huis (ruimer dan het op de foto's lijkt), ruime slaapkamer, ruime badkamer, keuken met eettafeltje, knusse woonkamer met lekkere bank.

• Zwembad is privé en verwarmd! (Rond zwembad, diameter ong. 3,5 meter.)

• Huisje biedt optimale privacy. (De Hatchers (heel aardige mensen) wonen er pal achter, maar ze respecteren je privacy 100%.)

• Beschutte ligging. Weinig last van wind op het terras, ook niet bij het zwembad dankzij het houten schuttinkje.

• Perfecte oriëntatie: hele dag zon, eerst op het iets hoger gelegen terras en daarna in de tuin en bij het zwembad, zelfs bij de lager staande winterzon.

• Goede locatie als je wil wandelen bij de Teide, maar niet al te hoog wil zitten ivm kou. (Vilaflor is een stuk kouder.)

• Engelstalige tv, inclusief filmzenders.

• Zeer goede internetverbinding, die het altijd doet.

• Ligbedjes in de tuin en ligbedjes bij het zwembad, stoeltjes op het terras.

• Heel fijn bed. Lekker lang, goede matras en geen dekens, maar een lekker dekbed.

• Gaskachel geeft heerlijk veel warmte. (Wel een gebruiksaanwijzing, dus bij 1e x even hulp vragen aan Kenneth en Sally.)

• In de keuken zijn allerlei kruiden, olie, keukenrol, vershoudfolie, vuilniszakken ed aanwezig.


Kostte moeite om nadelen te verzinnen. Voor ons was het huisje perfect. Maar vooruit:

• Keuken niet bijzonder;

o 2 pitten (prima voor ons)

o geen vaatwasser (hebben wij niet gemist)

o klein ijskastje (je kunt dus niet voor veel meer dan 2 dagen boodschappen doen)

o klein, traag waterkokertje (= tijdig bedenken dat je koffie wil)

o geen afzuigkap (wel een raampje)

• Boiler geeft overdag voldoende warm water, maar 's avonds niet. Zelfs als je allebei 's avonds heel kort onder de douche staat, is het warme water eigenlijk te snel op. Boiler hangt buiten en warmt daardoor 's avonds langzamer op.

• Geen wasmachine. (Hebben wij niet gemist; we waren er maar een week.)

• Woonkamer beetje donker (maar daar zit je als het goed is nauwelijks).

• Toegangsweggetje beetje krap, maar dat went snel genoeg.

Conclusie: echt een fijn huisje, prijs-kwaliteitverhouding zeer goed. We hebben vaak (veel) meer betaald dan 57,- per nacht voor veel minder fijne casitas op de Canarische eilanden. Kunnen iedereen die graag rustig en privé wil zitten dit huisje van harte aanbevelen. De foto's op homeaway doen het huis en vooral de tuin geen recht. In werkelijkheid is alles groter en mooier
