DISCOVER TENERIFE NATURE!! We would like to share our unique place, a cottage integrated in Nature surrounded by a forest in the proximity of El Teide National Park but only 15 minutes away from the beach. You will have access to the whole property included in a 17.000 m2 land. It has it all, tranquility, peace and access to northern Tenerife. Our home is ideal for hiking, birdwatching and stargazing and made for those who love traveling experiencing the real thing but like to stay away from crowded touristic areas. Our place has it all, you can spend the day at the beach and in no time go up to the house to light up a fire in the rustic, cozy kitchen-dinningroom.

We would like to share our unique place, a cottage integrated in Nature surrounded by a forest in the proximity of El Teide National Park but only 15 minutes away from the beach. You will have access to the whole property included in a 17.000 m2 land. It has it all, tranquility, peace and access to northern Tenerife. Our home is ideal for hiking, birdwatching and stargazing and made for those who love traveling experiencing the real thing but like to stay away from crowded touristic areas. Our place has it all, you can spend the day at the beach and in no time go up to the house to light up a fire in the rustic, cozy kitchen-dinningroom. A unique place in Tenerife with the privilege of being so close to nature and El Teide National Park but yet very accesible. There are many trails for hiking around our house that will take you all over the CORONA FORESTAL, from Arenas Negras Recreational Area to Los Realejos. It´s a fantastic opportunity to discover nature, bird watching, hiking, mountain biking and enjoy spectacular views, yet we are only 15 minutes away from the city of Icod. The cottage is a 2 bedroom house with 2 complete bathroom and it can accommodate up to 6 adults. The main bedroom, with a queen bed and a sofa bed and complete bathroom. A second bedroom with 2 single beds and a complete bathroom. This bedroom is actually a separate building 'The Potato room', next the the main house. There is a big kitchen-dinning room (best part of the house :)) with barbecue and a porch with a confortable sofa excellent for reading or just sitting to enjoy the views of our beautiful forest. Our fish tank has many birds species as visitors. Pinion Azul (Fringilla Teydea), Paloma Turque (Columba Bollii), Paloma Rabiche (Columba Junoniae), Buho chico (Asio outs canariensis), Gavilan common (Accipiter nisus) are some examples., Bustard ratonero (Buteo Buteo Aguililla) and many more. We can provide a baby bed if needed. Pets are allowed under certain conditions, please contact us for details. To get to our house you will need to rent a car. Any car can make it there (depending on the load) although we recommend to rent a diesel engine car to drive to our house and around Tenerife. A small car with 4 adults and 4 big suitcases won´t make it up as some turns are a bit steep. Recommended visits: 1. Cueva del Viento. This Long Volcano tube (70km) is near our house and guided tours are provided in various languages. Please for more info check their web site and make sure you make reservations ahead of time. 2. Beach San Marco, only 10 minutes away. 3. Garachico, about 20 minutes away, beautiful old downtown and natural sea pools. Excellent pizza at Bacco restaurant :) 4. Don´t miss visiting Volcano of El Teide and its surrounding, Las Cañadas. There is a cable car that will take you from the base to 3.555 meters. If you feel like climbing the last 200 meters make sure you get a permit at 'reservasparquesnacionales', click on the option language. Again, make sure you plan ahead of time and make reservation through their web page, only very few people are allow to climb up those 200 meters every day, small groups of 8 to 10 people. 5. Loro Parque, dolphins, killer whales, seals shows, alligators, tigers, gorillas and impressive Pinguin and sharks aquarius. It will take a whole day and excellent for kids. 6. Masca. Excellent views and breathtaking road. About 40 minutes from our house. 7. Taganana. Part of Montes de Anaga in the other side of the island, certainly worth the drive. About 50 minutes from our house. 8. La Laguna old downtown, excellent for a walk with the family, La Laguna Cathedral and La Concepción Church, and in between small stores and cafeterías. Excellent for coffee and a snack. Some other information: Mini market, about 2 km away. Supermarket, about 15 minutes away. Closest restaurant, 5 minutes. Downtown, about 15 minutes away. Nearest hospital, about 15 minutes away. Paragliding, 25 minutes away. For those interested on mountain bike rentals, there is a local company that will bring them to the house, you can contact the at their site Kirayabikes.

About the neighbourhood
The town of Icod de los Vinos, meaning ‘the local wine,’ is cut deep into the hills of Mount Teide in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Situated at around 230 metres above sea level, Icod has almost 10km of shoreline running along the northern coast of Tenerife and is surrounded by a lush and fertile valley responsible for producing many of the islands crops. A small yet bustling town, Icod is more a one day stop destination for tourists to explore and enjoy on foot rather than spend a longer period of time at. Idyllic cobble stone streets pave the way for an old town rich in Canarian tradition, offering sweeping views of the impressive Mount Teide and its evergreen canopy that envelopes the top half of Icod.
Getting around
To get to our house you will need to rent a car. Any car can make it there (depending on the load) although we recommend to rent a diesel engine car to drive to our house and around Tenerife. A small car with 4 adults and 4 big suitcases won´t make it up as some turns are a bit steep.
