Vintage apartment in the north of Tenerife with sea views

There was an idea to celebrate the New Year in the Canary Islands.Islands (Tenerife) is not quite in the usual housing. And considering that only a week remained before the holiday, the choice was already small in principle - it was necessary to book for several months at least, or even six months. And then I came across this apartment with an unusual interior. Plus a quiet and god-forgotten place, a view of the sea from a height. Immediately booked.

Price and reservation

The cost of 50 euros per day with all fees. This is quite a bit for Tenerife in the New Year. The price tag for other apartments started from 100-200 euros. So, in any case, a good price was. Here is a direct link to your reservation

Interior

The interior, frankly, an amateur. Someone will go, someone definitely not. If you like only renovation, glass and metal, then you can not here categorically. If you want something vintage (I just do not know what word to pick up, authentic?), Then you can really like it. All reviews about the apartments are enthusiastically positive.

Honestly, I myself am rather a lover of European-quality repairs, especially for long stays, but for a short time as exotic, quite.

First of all, the apartments have a lot of details. With a rich imagination, you can make a million photos for Instagram. Here you, and a collection of shells in jars, and a statuette of Buddha, and a rake hanger, and a selection of National Geographic magazine for several years, and a rocking chair ... and ... a century-old telephone! Apparently the owner of the apartment is an amateur of various souvenirs and old things, and collects them for many years.

What is here from amenities. A shower with hot water (it was not possible to get it in the faucet in the kitchen), induction cooker, microwave, capsule coffee maker, TV with sufficient diagonal and WIFI router, washing machine. Air conditioning, heating, kettle no. But the kettle is not a problem, water can be boiled on the stove in a saucepan.

Spices, salt, butter, sugar, tea, coffee - all inavailability in the kitchen. You can cook something and drink tea. Even a couple of bottles of wine, champagne and tequila are on the shelf for those who will rent an apartment. Nicely! Another hostess (or previous guests) left a bag of milk, cutting sausage and cupcake. Everything is sealed.

I will continue the advantages. On the veranda there is a table with chairs where you can drink a cup of coffee or a glass of the same wine overlooking the ocean. Yes, the geometry of the space is such that the sea is not visible from the window, but it is worth going out the door and there, almost 180 degrees, there is a view of the blue surface.

Now the cons. They too are.

  • Dubak! In my opinion, the apartment is not very suitable for a stop in the winter. Speech about people accustomed to central heating. The apartment does not have, no air conditioning with heating mode, or any other heater. At night in December, the temperature fell on the street to 13 degrees. In the apartment I don’t know how much it would be if I hadn’t bought a heater (the details).
  • Wet Since the house is not just on a rock, but inside it, it's like in a cave. However, if everything is well warmed, it would become drier.
  • The mattress is too soft, you fall into itcentimeters by 10. Not used to it. And also a mattress pad in the form of an oilcloth (you know, one from Ikea), from which you sweat at night. Brrr ... Although in other apartments on exactly the same mattress covers there was no such problem. Maybe again because of the humidity.

It seems to me that in summer, when it is hot outside, this apartment should be very good and cool. In winter, it is chilly, considering that not a single ray of the sun gets into the apartment, and the floor is tiled.

Below at the foot of the rock is a naturalswimming pool where you can swim. There is a large parking lot near it, but during the whole time I was in the apartment I did not see a crowd in the pool. Maybe because it is winter, and maybe because the north of the island and there are fewer people here.

Near the house there is a private parking and forapartments have their own place. Parking is at a lower level (remember, a house on a cliff), but there is not far to go. Although, when you first arrive with suitcases, it is better to stand at the gate, pull everything out of the trunk and then put the car in the parking lot.

About 10 minutes by car to the city of Tacoronte and there are 3 normal supermarkets in it at once: Lidl, HipperDino and Mercadona.

If you drive further north, you will get to Anaga National Park. I highly recommend: mountains, forests, trekking trails, viewing platforms. Very beautiful. To Teide, too, the trail starts not far away.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
