Ideal base for a quiet escape.

Apartment - Private room · La Orotava, Canary Islands 38300, Spain

The Space

Come and stay with me at my flat in the beautiful Orotava Valley. Every visitor so far has been a joy and it´s been fun to share stories during their short visits. I´ll be as helpful or detached as you need, and simply want you to enjoy your stay and to feel comfortable and at home. Much better that some cheap hotel, and I´m on hand to collect or deliver you wherever you wish, especially if you miss the last bus home, and it´ll be cheaper than a taxi!

The double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, WC and wash basin. The double bed is a comfortable 200cm (visco-latex), and there are large wardrobes and a big window with a panoramic ocean view.

Fresh towels and beach towels are provided as often as you need. There´s a powerful hair dryer too.

Welcome Pack:
You can purchase a welcome pack with bread, wine, cheese, Iberian ham, olives, fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers, chocolates or any other provisions, refreshments and toiletries, sun cream etc. that you may need. Again, handy for Ryanair travellers and also if you aren´t hiring a car.

Just email your requirements and it´ll be waiting for you on arrival. Price? You decide. Normal supermarket prices.

Guest Access

Kitchen with microwave, cooker, etc. Also washing machine, tumble dryer and iron - although you can just leave me your washing and it´ll be dry and folded for you when you get back.

TV in lounge. Balcony with ocean view.
Free WiFi.

Free car parking.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as you need. I´ll also service your room and bathroom every day if you´re up and out in the morning. Otherwise have a lie in!

The Neighborhood

Historically, the most desirable place to live in Tenerife. Beautiful architecture, churches and museums, as well as stunning scenery.

The flat is close to the centre of La Orotava (0.5km), and the bus station is just a few minutes walk downhill (0.3km), and the motorway is close too (1km).

Puerto de la Cruz, with its many retaurants, shops and bars is about 5km away as are the natural, less touristy, but popular and unspoiled beaches (3km). The popular lido "Lago Martiánez" is about 5km away.

The flat is in a quiet location. Fabulous views from your room over the rooftops, down to the ocean.

The flat is beside the main route up to El Teide and the National Park, as well as hiking trails and mountain horse riding stables. Local gym, spa and swimming pool also available in the town.

Getting around

Bus station walking distance. Taxis inexpensive. Failing that, call me! I´ll come and get you or take you where you need to go.

Airport pick-up available, TFN (25km) or TFS (90km).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My second stay with Thomas.This time with my girlfriend. We are both happy to return. Thomas is a wonderful host.

    April 2014
  • Thomas is a very friendly and open-minded host. He provides you with everything you need for a perfect stay in Tenerife. He's always up for a nice conversation and can give you many insider tips about what to do and where to go on the island. We had a wonderful time in his apartment and enjoyed our daily breakfast on the balcony with an outstanding ocean view. The place is exactly as it's mentioned in the descriptions: spacious, clean and very cosy. You can find all the equipment that you need in order to make yourself at home.
    It was the first time we booked on airbnb and thanks to Thomas, it was definitely the right choice! We hope to get the chance to come back one day :)

  • Thomas is a very good host, friendly, easy-going and trustworthy with a lot of knowledge about the history and the culture of the island.
    The room is comfortable and private (with its own bathroom). The bed is huge :-)
    The location is ideal for travelling around, close to the centre but quiet. Highly recommended!.

  • Thomas is a great host! Always positive and ready to help. He advices us on many things to do around La Orotava. We recommend him warmly to anyone who would like to stay in this town.

  • Thomas was really nice and has good conversation. His apartment was very nice, clean and quiet. It is close to the Orotava Center by car and very well located to go to El Teide.

    Thomas fue muy agradable y tiene buena conversación. Su apartamento era muy agradable, limpio y tranquilo. El apartamento está cerca del centro de la Orotova en coche y está muy bien situado para ir al Teide.

  • Best host in my airbnb-life and very hospitable!
    Great location in La Orotava. Clean and beautiful apartments with balcony.

    January 2014
  • Thomas' place is bright, clean and very comfortable. And quiet. It is also only a short walk to the La Orotava bus station, if you don't mind a short, steep walk. Thomas is an excellent host who genuinely wishes for you to enjoy his adopted home; and is very knowledgeable about Tenerife's history, food, and culture. I would stay with him again.

  • I thoroughly recommend staying at Thomas's apartment as the facilities, location and host are all fantastic. This was my first experience of using Airbnb and I definitely started on a high that will be hard to beat! The apartment is on the edge of the town centre, so it has parking outside and is quiet, whilst being within easy walking distance of both the historical and modern parts of town. The bedroom is a good size, (with views down to the coast) and has its own en-suite bathroom. I also had access at all times to the kitchen and living room, with lots of space available in the fridge. Thomas is a generous and entertaining host. He is very interesting to talk to and willingly gave advice on everything from where to eat, swim and park, to giving more detailed information about other towns on the Island and the local fiestas that were on during my stay. I would definitely stay there again - La Orotava was my favourite town on the Island and a big part of that was being made to feel at home in this excellent accommodation.
