Nieves is a very friendly host. She did everything to make us feel home. Her appartment was exactly as described and although we arrived 1h late, Nieves took the time to welcome us.
The place is located somewhat outside from La Orotava but is easily accessible from the highway once you know the correct exit (it is 34) and don't get lost in the many one-way-streets...
To put it in a nutshell: we would love to come again!
Le contact avec Nieves a été facile, son accueil très sympathique, et elle parle français.
Nous avons passé 8 jours dans cet appartement agréable et bien situé, dans un quartier calme à proximité du centre ville de La Orotava (5 mn en voiture, 15 à 20 mn à pied).
Disposant d'une voiture, nous avons rayonné sur la côte Nord, les monts Anaga à L'Est, le parc du Teide, et la côte Est (Güimar, Poris de Abona).
Sehr ruhige Lage etwas außerhalb von La Orotava (zu Fuß ca. 20min ins Zentrum). Nieves ist sehr hilfbereit und gibt auch gerne Tipps für den Rest der Insel. Die Wohnung ist gut ausgestattet und geräumiger als es auf den Fotos aussieht.
Nieves was the perfect host.
Polite and flexible with our arrival time; as we decided in the last minute, to squeeze an extra adventure in on the way to her house. She even went out of her way to come home early from a party she was attending, one night, to supply us with an extra heater for the bedroom.
The flat is clean and well equipped with wifi, tv, towels, linen and everything in the kitchen to allow for home cooking.
The location is 3 min drive away from small and cosy cafe's in the local "La Orotava" that holds both nice historic buildings and a local organic, farmers marked on Saturdays. (Walking is a bit hilly but nice and there are benches along the way for a rest and to enjoy the views and gardens)
Another 7 min drive will bring you passed half a dozen supermarkets (Hiperdino & Lidl) and into the buzzing tourist attractive "Puerto de la Cruz" where you will find everything in restaurants, touristic shopping and black lava-sand beaches. You can choose to purchase access to the public pools down town with bars, children's play areas and recliners or as we did; take the car a bit up and down the coast in search of that perfect secluded spot for a snorkeling adventure.
One piece of advice. If you are looking to go for a day trip to Teide, the islands great volcano and the highest mountain in all of Spain - Please dress up warm and start early to avoid congestion to this most visited attraction in the island.
Nieves is very helpful, friendly and kind. She even prepared little welcome gift for us and took us once by her car to Puerto de la Cruz.
The place was nice, perfectly clean and very well equipped.
We have visited La Orotava in November when the weather was around 18 degrees and cloudy most of the time. It was chilly in the house and humid. It was difficult to have the towels dried during the day.
La Orotava is a good starting place. It has several supermarkets, coffee places, shops and museums. We have rented a scooter in Puerto and travelled around the island. The house is in a residential area, 15 minutes walk from the town centre, but very close to the highway.
Nieves' appartment is very well located, in a quiet residential area of La Orotava. It's perfect when you want to visit the island and especially if you are willing to do trek. The place is about 1h30 max from anywhere by car. The place was perfect for resting after a long day of trekking, nice bathroom, fully equiped kitchen and confortable bed. Only inconvenience was that the place was a little bit humid and it was hard to make the clothes dry after we washed them (but it might depend on the season). For a first time on Tenerife, it was the perfect home
We had a really great time at Nieves' place. The apartement is exactly like the photos show, very clean and the kitchen has everything you need. It's located in a quiet area of La Orotava where you have parking places directly in front of the house. The only thing which was a bit uncomfortable was that we only had wireless lan connection in the living room and the garden. And also in these places the connection was not the best, but it was enough to check e-mails or check something up.
Nieves was a really helpful host, when we had questions about Tenerife or the apartement.
So I can really recommend this place, when you have a car (which is recommendable in Tenerife anyway) and want to spend your holiday in quiet place in the north of the island.
Thank you for everything, Nieves.
Nieves was charming, and we were made to feel at home by her, her family and friends.
The appartment was smart and comfortable; the location was ideal for exploring the north of the island and, although it was preferable to have a car, it was only 20min walk to the beatiful old town of La Orotava.
Thoroughy enjoyed our stay
We spent ten lovely days in Nieves appartement in March 2014. Nieves is very friendly and helpful and easy to communicate with. The appartement is as described, it has all you need and was spotlessy clean. It comes with a nice little garden with afternoon sun. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place and the smell of the flowers from all around. The location is good, an optimal base to explore the north of Tenerife or Teide National park. Orotova is a pictures little village, far from mass tourism and little cafés to enjoy your morning cup are in walking distcance from the appartment. Overall, very recommendable.
Nous avons passé 10 jours dans cet appartement confortable dont le descriptif Airbnb est tout à fait fidèle à la réalité. Nous avons profité de la terrasse les journées ensoleillées. La Orotava est une très jolie petite ville. Un véhicule est fortement recommandé car l'accès du centre-ville à l'appartement est possible à pied mais peu agréable.
