“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Tucked away at the end of a narrow road and hidden from all the brash development nearby, you arrive in an unspoilt, white fishing village tumbling down the hillside into the sea. A rare find indeed.
Robinson House is, as advertised, basic and no-frills but none of this matters when you can see and hear the ocean through the open windows or from the panoramic roof terrace with its 360 degree views. The house has everything you need on holiday (we loved the quirky shower) and unless you cannot survive without 21st century technology 24/7 it is the perfect place to chill out and unwind. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the roof late into the night, sharing a bottle of wine as we watched the sun set and the stars appear.
We had a fantastic week and felt we had been transported back to the days of back-packing in Greece in the 1980's. Thank you Julien for letting us experience your wonderful retreat.

“Amazing stay at Robinson House”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

My daughter and I have just returned from an amazing stay at Robinson House. It is located in a small village 1 minutes walk from the ocean where you can fish, swim or snorkel (for mask, snorkel and fins there is a Decathlon sports store near Santa Cruz which is only 15 mins drive away). You may even see some dolphins (we were fortunate).

The accommodation is simple but has all the basic amenities (no tv thank goodness) & the terrace is wonderful for just sitting and looking out onto the ocean (time can disappear very quickly). Looks exactly as per the photos.

There is a small supermarket in Tabaiba or a much larger department store (with food hall) in Santa Cruz (10 minutes drive away) called El Corte Ingles.

Tips - nearest town of Tabaiba is only a few minutes drive away and has a natural sea pool (free to use) and the bay is great for diving or snorkelling. Manolo restaurant by the pool serves great seafood and local dishes. Also Buddha Cafe (western food) open from 6pm is a nice little chill out bar.

Further afield you have Teide national park with stunning volcanic scenery (+ cable car or hike to summit) and Los Gigantes in the Southwest which runs whale and dolphin watching trips aswell as diving with turtles. These are just a few of the options available in Tenerife.

So if you want a haven away from the resorts to enjoy the natural elements and completely relax then look no further than Robinson House.

“Delightfully different”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This simple accommodation was situated in a traditional fishing village, far and removed from the high rise that makes up much of the rest of the island. Quaint, romantic and perched literally a stone's throw away from the sea the accommodation had pretty much everything we needed. It was very basic and quite remote so it might not be to everyone's taste., but, with a car, the capital and the rest of the east coast was easily accessible.
