1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Being able to walk to a great family beach (Arrieta) with spanish vacationmakers mainly. Our teenagers felt free to go swimming, body boarding & surfing. After a day of swimming or discovering the island it felt good to come back to the Eco Cabin with its pergola and small garden with fruit trees (fig, orange, mango, apple).

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Walk around the volcanoes in a small group with an accredited guide early on during your vacation. This will change your outlook on this amazing island and its inhabitants.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local guides and other employees who work for government facilities were on strike during our stay. One of their complaints being that tour operators are placing increasing pressure on price reductions to keep on attracting package vacation makers. This seems to result in cleaning staff having to clean more rooms for the same salary whilst living costs go up ... Should we give bigger tips to ensure local people get some of the revenue? It is undeniable that local people work hard at ensuring that we have a good time. Otherwise, the island felt very unspoilt. The ethos at our place certainly supported the environment and even went further by discreetly suggesting to its residents to take part by recycling water, using hybrid cars etc

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

This was our best family vacation. The unusual beauty of the island, the influence of Cesar Manrique, the sea and the weather had such an impact on us that we would love to go back. Also, having no Internet in the Eco Cabin meant that the whole family read, relaxed, cooked together. We felt very privileged for having such a lovely stay.

Thank you so much Sophie for your lovely review. We are glad you had a wonderful stay and that you enjoyed the surrounding areas and the beach. We would love to welcoming you back again soon!

So many things; Watching the sun rise every morning, star gazing at night, our toddler feeding the chickens our daily food scraps.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Certainly. The farm is off the grid, water is recycled. Alot of the food waste is given to the livestock. We shopped and ate locally. A hybrid car was provided for our stay.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It is a wonderful place for a family vacation with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Staying in a yurt on a site with over 100 chickens, various cats, rabbits and even a donkey roaming around. Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Really relaxed atmosphere in this family-run eco business, far away from the crowds of package tourists. Definitely get the organic food box, it had the most delicious produce.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Definitely. The site employed local people. It was 100% self-sustaining, with solar power, its own well and its own sewage system. We even had little solar powered lamps for our yurts at nights!

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience

review 26 Oct 2010

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

The right vacation for our family at this time.

review 11 Dec 2009

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Beautiful accommodation and right next to a lovely beach with great and unpretentious Spanish restaurants.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The immediate surroundings of the finca are a little bleak and unpromising but once you are inside their gates it's lovely. In time that will change as planting etc matures I expect

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Definitely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent. As good as we had hoped and will go back with our children next year who will also love it!
