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

The interior, frankly, an amateur. Someone will go, someone definitely not. If you like only renovation, glass and metal, then you can not be here categorically. If you want something vintage (I just do not know what word to pick up, authentic?), you might really like it. All reviews about the apartments are all enthusiastically positive.
Honestly, I myself am rather a lover of European-quality repairs, especially for long stay, but for a short time as an exotic, quite.
First of all, the apartments have many details. Having a rich fantasy can take a million photos for Instagram. Here you and a collection of seashells in jars, and a statuette of Buddha, and a rake hanger, and a selection of National Geographic magazine for a few years, and a rocking chair — and — a hundred-year-old telephone! Apparently the owner of the apartment lover of all sorts of different souvenirs and old things, and collects a lot of them years old.
What is here from amenities. Hot water shower (in the kitchen faucet it could not be obtained), induction cooker, microwave, Capsule coffee maker, TV with sufficient diagonal and WIFI router, Washer. Air conditioning, heating, kettle no. But the kettle no problem, water can be boiled on the stove in a saucepan.
Spices, salt, butter, sugar, tea, coffee – all available 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 shoot an apartment. Nicely! Another hostess (or previous guests) left a bag of milk, a sausage and a cupcake. Everything is sealed.
I will continue the advantages. On the veranda there is a table with chairs where you can have a cup of coffee or a glass of the same wine overlooking the ocean. Yes, space geometry is such that the sea is not visible from the window, but it is worth go out the door and there almost a 180 degree view of the blue smooth 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. AT no apartments, no air conditioning with heating mode, no another heater. At night in December, the temperature fell outside up to 13 degrees. In the apartment I don’t know how much it would be if I don’t bought a heater (details).
- Wet Since the house is not just on a rock, but inside it, there like in a cave. However, if everything is well warmed, it would be drier
- The mattress is too soft, you fall into it by 10 centimeters. Not used to such. And also mattress in the form of oilcloth (you know, such from Ikea), from which you sweat at night. Brrr— Though in others the apartments on exactly the same mattress covers did not have such a problem. Maybe again because of the humidity.
It seems to me that in summer, when it is hot outside, in this apartment must be very good and cool. In winter, chilly, considering that not a single ray of the sun gets into the apartment, and the floor is tiled.
Down at the foot of the cliff there is a natural pool where you can to swim. There is plenty of parking near it, but for the whole stay in the apartment I did not see the crowd in the pool. Maybe because winter, and maybe because the north of the island and there are fewer people.
Near the house there is a private parking and for the apartment there is own place. The parking is a lower level (remember, the house on rock), but there is not far to go. Although, when you first arrive with suitcases, it is better to get up at the gate, pull everything out of the trunk and then already put the car in the parking lot.

Every night the sky was just breaking from the stars.
Long time I have not seen this
Approximately 10 minutes by car to the city of Tacoronte and in it 3 normal supermarkets at once: Lidl, HipperDino and Mercadona.
If you drive further north, you will get to the National Park Anaga I highly recommend: mountains, forests, trekking trails, viewing site Very beautiful. Teide is also close to the highway begins
