    I’m consistently impressed with/learning about the wide variety of things to do and places to stay in the Canaries. This one — staying in an actual estate — sounds like such a great experience. Thank, Matt.

      Thanks, Jennifer. Yes, there is greater range of accommodation on the island than holiday brochures would suggest.

    I love finding a house to stay in when I visit a place–makes it seem more real to me–thanks for sharing.

      You’re very welcome, Larissa. We were reading in the guestbook about a family who had stayed in one of the houses for three weeks. They’re a great base for activities such as hiking.

      It was, Jessie. Looking forward to going back and trying the other two houses.

    This location is my idea of a nice stay at a location, the pool looks quite inviting also.

      The pool was very inviting. Especially for the boys. Who spent lots of time there.

    Staying on an estate sounds like the way to go, whether you’re a local or an outsider. I love those polka-dot sheets!

      Thanks, Terry. We definitely recommend it. Regarding the sheets, you’ve certainly got an eye for detail.

    I’ve never stayed in a living estate before. If I were there, I’d probably want to stay more than a day or two, to enjoy the place more.

      We could use that pool on a daily basis at the moment. It’s a lovely retreat. One that’s also so convenient.

      Well, Bethaney, the property was reet petite, we suppose. But the estate is more of a sprawler. So there’s plenty to explore.

      The village itself is well worth a visit too, Micki. Plus there are some great hiking trails nearby. So, ideal location, all in all.

    We’re big fans of getting away to remote places- especially if you can do so in only 20 minutes. The estate looks like a great place to take a mini vacation.

      Thanks, Patti. Although he’s growing taller than the day. Which will probably only encourage his photobombing activities.
