Our home was built in 2010 and is a mixture of traditional canary and modern construction. This option for 4 adults would include a bedroom on the first floor and another bedroom on the ground floor, both with ensuite bathrooms.
The house is built around a beautiful stone patio with a garden along one side. There is a large teak table in the patio so you can eat outside all year round.
The kitchen and living room are all on the Ground Floor. The kitchen is large and modern, with an oak table that seats 8 people. The kitchen has an oven, microwave, large fridge and dishwasher. We enjoy cooking, so you should find just about every appliance and cooking utensil you might need.
The living room is in what was the oldest part of the house. It's a traditional canary style construction; the roof is solid wood on the inside and the walls are very thick. There are plenty of books and DVD's as well as traditional games like ludo, draughts and cards. There is a small guest bathroom for visitors adjoining the living room.
Facing onto the patio on the ground floor there is the Guest Bedroom that sleeps 2 people and has a full wall of drawers and wardrobes. There is an ensuite bathroom with a glass panelled shower cabinet, two wash basins, a toilet and a bidet.
On the First Floor is the master bedroom, with one double bed and a wall of wardrobes and drawers. There's a full ensuite bathroom with individual wash basins, toilet, bidet and shower.
If there are four adults in your party then you will be renting the Guest Bedroom and Master Bedroom and will have access to the whole house with full use of the ground floor living room, kitchen and patio. There is a children's bedroom and bathroom on the first floor which does not form part of the rental space.

Другие важные подробности
There is no Wi-Fi connection, so enjoy being "off-grid" for a few days.
There is a good little village shop in the square but if you have a lot to buy, go to the Mercadona supermarket in Icod de los Vinos, which is 10 minutes away by car.
The rubbish is collected early in the morning on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can place the rubbish bag on the pavement outside the front door, the previous night if you want.
The living room has a chimney but for safety reasons we ask guests not to use it. It never gets very cold in Garachico in the winter months.
We do not smoke and we're pleased to be able to offer a no-smoking residence for people visiting Garachico, so please respect the no-smoking rule.
Please treat our home with the care and if you notice anything that's broken or might need to be repaired, please let us know.
If you are cooking, please use the chopping boards when cutting and slicing in order to protect the kitchen work tops from scratches.
Feel free to read the books and view the DVD's that are in the living room but please return them at the end of your visit.
I'm English and have lived in Spain since 1988. My wife's family comes from Garachico and we built our house in this small seaside town in 2010. We are happy to rent our house for short periods to people who are looking for to spend time in this lovely, historic town on the north of the island.
