“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is one of the best self-catering places we've stayed in and we soon felt totally relaxed. It is very spacious, well equipped, comfortable and full of character. We loved being in La Calera and enjoyed the walk down to the different areas and beaches. There is an excellent choice of restaurants in Valle Gran Rey. Although you don't need a car to enjoy the area we hired one for a couple of days to explore the rest of the beautiful island. Viv the owner was very helpful and responded quickly to any email queries I sent. We hope to be back!

Reviewed 31 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Arrived in the dark following a very wet drive over, but excellent instructions in how to find it meant no problems. Popped to restaurant across the way for great meal before falling into the lovely huge bed for a great nights sleep. Weather then was fabulous for the rest of the week to enjoy the lovely terrace, especially for a late breakfasts. Beautiful spacious apartment with space for relaxing inside and out and well equipped. There were lots of restaurants to visit, two right along from the apartment and others a short walk down the stairs to the bay. Viv left us lovely bits and there was a great local store next door but one to pick up necessities. We hired bikes and climbed out of the valley a couple of times but quite a climb! Great visit will have to come for longer next time.

“Spacious Apartment in peaceful La Calera”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

A thoroughly enjoyable, first visit to La Gomera and a weeks stay at Casa Bibi in the La Calera area of Valle Gran Rey.

Booking the accommodation by email with the owner, via the Holiday Lettings secure payment system, was trouble free and our £100 damages deposit was quickly returned at the end of our holiday. The owner responded promptly to our initial enquiry and all future correspondence.

Casa Bibi is an exceptionally spacious, one bedroom apartment with a small en suite bathroom. It has some interesting original features and has been tastefully furnished. Spotlessly clean for our arrival and the welcome pack is a nice touch. Excellent wifi connection.

La Calera is a very quiet area with lots of steps and quirky alleyways. There is a small shop and three restaurants near by. The 142 (approx) steps up to the apartment gate/key safe may be off putting for some people – certainly great exercise and makes you remember everything when going out!

It is an ideal base from which to explore, by car and foot, this small, green island littered with palm trees. There are spectacular views from Miradors (viewpoints) and many, well signposted, walks. We managed to see so much and the quiet roads, along with some of the inclines/declines were a pleasure to drive on.

Having self catered for many years, as we like the freedom it offers, and also having owned (and rented out) an apartment in the Canaries, we fully appreciate the ongoing hard work involved, for the owners, in maintaining a holiday property for guests.

We booked Casa Bibi for a special birthday and spent some time looking, before making a decision about where to stay. It was made based on photos, having a few ‘extras’ and reviews from other guests.

A few points re the apartment, most of which we have mentioned to the owner since our stay, and have received a reply:

1. It would have been nice to have been informed, in advance, that:

• the dishwasher wasn’t working (irrelevant of whether or not we would have used it), instead of being met with a laminated sign on it saying “sorry out of order”.
The owner has since informed us “the pump gave up just before we were leaving
for the UK and we could not track down a replacement in time”.

• a building is being built adjacent to the roof terrace. Admittedly, no work took place during our stay but it was still something of an unprepared for eyesore at the top of the steps to the roof terrace. The views to the sea and mountain are fortunately not affected by this.
The owner has since informed us “the building work was supposed to be finished
last year but everything moves very slowly in La Gomera. However I knew it
would not be resumed until after the season and it does not obscure the views
of the ocean and mountain. However I do understand your concern”.

2. We couldn’t understand why the large fridge freezer was in the bedroom (noisy during the night, if switched on) when there is more than enough room in the spacious kitchen area and it would have complemented the attractive, modern units. It was unnecessary to have a small, token fridge in the kitchen area as well! If that had been the only fridge we wouldn’t have booked the apartment.
The owner has since informed us “the fridge freezer in the bedroom should have been switched off, sorry that it caused you problems with noise at night. The large fridge freezer is an extra facility for guests who stay for longer periods of time (1 or 2 months). It was originally in the kitchen but was moved so that more seating in the kitchen dining area could be provided”.

3. We feel some of the photos and information on the website need updating as there have been a few changes in the layout of furniture inside and the roof terrace is different. For example it clearly states “a fully equipped kitchen (toaster, food processor, American fridge freezer and dishwasher)”. No mention of the fridge/freezer being in the bedroom and only for the use of long term guests, or of a small fridge being in the kitchen area. No reference to the bathroom being en suite plus we didn’t find a bbq on the terrace.

La Gomera is definitely an Island we will return to.

Lovely property. Clean and tidy and very spacious. Massive comfy bed and lovely shower. Close enough to beach and restaurants. You need to be fit to climb the steps to the property though as there are lots of them. All in all I would recommend this property to stay in.
