“Beautiful terrace with unbelievable view”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We (3 people, 22-23 years old) stayed 5 nights at Casa Carmela and we really enjoyed it. As we didn't want to explore the south of Tenerife but really liked the beautiful north of the island, La Guancha was the perfect place to stay.
Even though we arrived very late, Jorge and Lala were there to welcome us very warmly and they were extremely nice and very helpful.
In the kitchen there was everything we needed to cook and the two bathrooms were clean.
The terrace was perfect to enjoy the view, to bask in the sun and to have breakfast or dinner.
We were really happy and would highly recommend the house. If we come back to Tenerife one day, we will definitely stay at Casa Carmela again!

“Beautifully located but very rustic and lacks cleanliness”
Reviewed 17 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Casa Carmela is located in a quiet village on a hill and has a beautiful view to the sea. It has two balconies. The owners are very friendly. The kitchen is very well equipped. There are maps and guide books and other helpful material. The apartment is very rustic with pottery, pictures and many decorative items.
There are individual steps in the rooms and on one of the balconies. This was not ideal for us, as we travelled with small children. We didn`t use the warderobes, as they were moldy. Some of the furniture is a bit rickety and we do not recommend using the cot. Some of the electrical devices are old and unreliable. The apartment lacks cleanliness.

Hi Sybylle
I'm sorry you feel that the house wasn't to your standard! There were contact numbers available for you to ask for anything that was necessary and to ask for a new cot. We have regular cleaners and will pass your message on to improve things. The house is old and can be damp sometimes.

“Good base for exploring Tenerife”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed at Casa Carmela for over a week. La Guancha was a good base for exploring Tenerife by car. It is conveniently located for visiting hiking paths at Teide, the Teno mountains, as well as Anaga mountains. La Guancha itself wasn't too special. There were only a few sights to see. Attractive restaurants we didn’t find within walking distance, although we didn’t try very hard as the hills were quite steep to walk, especially when also pushing a pram. For hill running workouts it was good though :D

The house was, like others have commented, a typical Canary Island house. If you’re looking for the most modern lodging, this is not it. But if you’re looking for something charming, then Casa Carmela should be on your list! The two floors inside were not very spacious, but good enough for 3 adults and a baby. We really enjoyed breakfasts - and the view - on the roof terrace (we were also lucky with the weather that time of year). There was always parking space on the street.

Communication with owner was effortless and she was helpful with our requests. When we arrived we were greeted by her relatives. Although we didn’t speak the same language, things worked out fine nevertheless. All in all we enjoyed our stay!

“Great week in La guancha”
Reviewed 14 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We spent 1 week in Casa Carmela. We had a fantastic time. The villa is very nice and very well situated. The view from the terrace is amazing and we enjoyed having breakfast there in the morning and BBQ in the evening. The place is quiet and perfect to have relaxing holidays. Booking with Karen was very easy and she nicely provided all the details we needed. In la Guancha, we were warmly welcomed by Lala and Jorge. They were very nice and helpful. It is a shame we don't speak Spanish. We definitively recommend this place and we will stay again in Casa Carmela if we go back to Tenerife one day.

“Beautiful traditional house in a stunning, quiet and authentic location with lots to do and see within easy reach.”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Casa Carmela for 9 nights, we had a wonderful time. Booking was easy, Karen was very helpful and her directions made finding the house very easy. We had a wonderful welcome from Lala and Jose who met us at the property on the night we arrived. The house was lovely, the terraces great and view excellent, the location was very peaceful we hired a car but also used the local bus service which ran a good service and was value for money. There is lots to do and I would recommend visiting Icod and Garachico as well as the sea pools on the coast. We are looking forward to returning and would recommend this place, I don't think you will be disappointed and it really is a hidden gem. Many thanks for a wonderful and memorable holiday.
