Atlantic Oasis: secret corner where trails start
This Oasis is a small house located in a lost hamlet, in the Taganana area. It is a haven of peace, lulled by the murmur of the waves, and only interrupted by the occasional sound of seabirds. It is located a few meters from the sea and at the foot of the Anaga Massif, Natural Park.
The Oasis is calm for all types of guests: for those who love nature, practically from the accommodation, trails start that go into the Anaga Massif, an authentic prehistoric jewel. For lovers of the sea, a few meters away are some small natural pools and the exotic black sand beach of Tachero, which at certain times of the year presents a sand bank that goes up to 100 meters into the sea.
The decoration of the house combines the most Canarian rustic style with some very selected elements of modernity and comfort. It is divided into three usable floors: accessing from the bottom you reach the cozy and bright living room-kitchen with a sofa bed. It's a nice seating area to have a small snack while food is prepared in their rustic-looking (albeit renovated) kitchen. The kitchen, with its handmade wooden cupboard, has a microwave and all the necessary utensils for the stay.
If we take the stairs, we access the second floor, where the bedroom is located, spacious and bright, from which there is access to a small balcony where you can glimpse the immense sea and the mountains. The bed in the bedroom is a double bed, with the possibility of electronically reclining and separating into two single beds, if the guests so wish. Also, the room has a television for those guests who wish to use it. On that same floor, we find the recently renovated bathroom with a shower tray. On the top floor, we find the best part of this Oasis, its center: the terrace-roof partially covered by a porch (during the sunniest hours) and from which you can see the immense Atlantic Ocean and the Anaga mountains. It is an unbeatable place to soak up the first rays of sun with breakfast or spend the late afternoon and early evening with a good bottle of Malvasia wine from the island.
The accommodation is located in the Taganana area but in a remote hamlet, which is even unknown to many locals. It is accessed through a road that goes down the hill of the Macizo de Anaga to the shore of the beach. Several hiking trails start from the farmhouse that get lost in nature along the coast and up the mountains, for those seeking adventure. In addition, in front of the farmhouse there are numerous practically private bathing areas, such as puddles that are created with the tides and a virgin sandy or pebble beach, also depending on the tides and the time of year. The location in this virgin and secluded area is the magic of this Oasis. Very few know it. Using the car you can also reach the best hiking trails on the island that start from other points of the Anaga Massif, one of the last redoubts of Laurissilva in the world. The Laurissilva is a type of exuberant and prehistoric vegetation that is only preserved on some islands of Macaronesia (Canary Islands and Azores). A few kilometers away by car we also find some of the best beaches on the island, those preferred by the locals and with exotic black sand: Roque de las Bodegas, Almáciga and Benijo.
The best way to access the accommodation is by car. Being in a protected area in the middle of nature and in the middle of hiking trails, the farmhouse is accessed through a narrow dirt road that descends to the sea, so it is recommended to arrive at the accommodation while there is still daylight. There are parking areas in the hamlet, although at certain times of the year and at certain hours it may cost a little more because one of the few inhabitants of the hamlet is there at that time.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
