“The ideal retreat” Hannah & I stayed at Casa Cantito for 10 days. We wanted a quiet stay away from rowdy party goers after a stressful few months.
It was perfect. The accommodation has a nice sized bedroom with an on suite bathroom which is basic but clean and functional. The living room/kitchen area is equipped with a dining table, chairs, 1 sofa plus 1 sofa bed and kitchen equipment suitable for making basic meals should you choose to stay in. There is a TV with 2 or 3 channels which airs English speaking films in the evening plus BBC World News is available. If you are a Spanish speaker there's over 150 channels to have a go at.
Personally my favourite aspect is the intimate garden which has some comfy chairs to sit out and read, contemplate or have a beer whilst listening to the sea.
I must say Pieter is the perfect host giving you all the privacy you want whilst being available and helpful should you need anything.
Las aguas is a quiet village by the sea front with not many tourists visiting. It is popular with the local community at weekends and some evenings as 1 or 2 market stalls are set up and people enjoy the 2 fish restaurants and another restaurant, 'La Escuela' with a more varied menu including more meat dishes. When Las aguas does gets livlier it certainly isn't a problem and adds to the friendly atmosphere. The pool isn't finished as yet and I think it may take some time. There is a nice pool and plenty of swimming and sunbathing opportunities at Garachico which is only 15 to 20 min's drive along the coast plus San Marcos beach which is only 5 to 10 min's away has a good beach, nice cafe's and great snorkelling. For the more adventurous, Teno is fantastic for snorkelling. Just be aware it's a challenging drive and be careful on the rock's when you get there!
A hire car is a must I feel as there is so much to do and see on the island plus it will be needed for easy grocery shopping and so on.
Thank you Pieter for a lovely stay. James & Hannah
