This is our fourth stay in La Palma and we always stay in old properties so understand that there will be some issues that go with the age of a property. However we had to stuff two ill fitting/warped doors with paper as you could see a lot of day light down the middle and underneath and the draughts were terrible. A strip along as they have done on another door would help. We had rain one night we were there and woke up to soaked clothes as we had left them on the window seat. Every single window and door had puddles underneath (except the bathroom). We were left a tiny amount of washing up liquid, enough for one washing up, and a dirty dish scrubber and brush which would only cost a euro or two to replace for each person. The hob was a nightmare to work and we often ended up with four rings on as difficult to work them independently (not energy efficient) the toaster is old and doesn't have a manual pop up capacity if your toast is done before the automatic pop up so we had to unplug and turn upside down to stop it burning.
The house has character, is spacious and has a great feel and lovely outside area in a lovely area. However, if you want your guests to be comfortable, come again and recommend to others then a little bit of maintenance and updating of equipment wouldn't go amiss. The heating was great but the bills will be higher for the owner due to the ill fitting windows and doors. The drive is very narrow and there is no turning space at the top. The dog in the next property constant.y barks which is annoying when you are in the house or garden (didn't bark at night). We have a dog ourselves so love dogs but.... The wood burner was good and we enjoyed going out looking for wood to burn on it.

Casa rural in local traditions and well restored, close to Caldera de Taburiente National Park. House can take 4 persons in 2 bedrooms, it has large kitchen/dining room with all necessary for cooking. It is surrounded by nice garden with orange trees and has terrace for eating outside.
Bathroom is rather small with shower.
Only problem I had was cold. House is heated by electric heating and it could not heat it enough when outside was below 10C.
