About Jorge Real
Hello. My name is Jorge I am 53 years old and married with three children. I was born in Tenerife and this house 'Casita del Viejo' was built for my family. We have had many happy times during the last few years and now that my children are older and studying in the University in La Laguna I thought that other people could enjoy a vacation here in 'Casita del Viejo'. If you decide to come to Tenerife you will also have a friend here to help you and your family enjoy everything that Tenerife and particularly this area has to offer..and olso would go with my in my little ship, to the atlantic ocean
Jorge Real purchased this Villa in 1995
Why Jorge Real chose Guía de Isora
We buy the land ; becouse we liked have ours trees and biological production. we have oranges and avogados and limons and vegetables productions near every year and we have security that no have phitosanitaries products inside its..also could be possible bo to the sea in my little ship, to the atlantic ocean, to fish or to see the cost.
What makes this Villa unique
If you enjoy peace and tranquility and an opportunity to experience and possibly participate in the operation of a typical canarian finca (farm) then "Casita del Viejo" provides the ideal setting for you and your family. The finca produces lots of fruit and vegetables including bananas oranges grapes lemons potatoes peppers etc. For a small supplement the owners can help if required to cook typical canarian food from the land and also provide wine from their own vineyard. Jorge has also worked for Tiede National Parks and knows the area particularly well and can if requested help prepare some routes if you are interested in walking. The house is a typical rustic canarian villa but with modern facilities for your comfort and enjoyment. If you prefer to just chill out its your choice.

Good sized and well located house with friendly owner
The house is in a secluded location - where we found the use of google maps helpful! - but with good access to the main highway connecting you to the rest of the island making this a good base for exploring Tenerife including the Teide national park.
There were just the 2 of us but the house is plenty big enough for a bigger party arranged over 2 levels. Jorge the owner was friendly and, living in nearby Los Gigantes, was available if needed. He also shared some of his catch of fish with us one day!
Magical Location and Awesome Owners
My husband and I spent 9 days at this home and it was incredible! The views were breathtaking and home extremely comfortable. We ventured to the close resort towns for beach encounters, shopping and some dining, when not cooking at home. Jorge’ and his wife, Lutzma were WONDERFUL! They both were very attentive to our comfort and needs. Jorge’ even took us out on his boat and showed us the cliffs and beautiful black sand beach where he indicated he takes his own family. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be making return trips to Tenerife! A warm, heartfelt thank you to Jorge’ and his wife for all they did for us while on this beautiful island.
Tammy and Frank, are the perfect tenants, Pennsylvania Americans closer than really friends, are kind and respectful attentive people .. Frank helped me to take my boat to the port and it was a pleasure to take him with Tammy, his beautiful wife, to bathe at the beach of Masca, where we anchored and swam to the beach, later we ate the fish that I caught that morning, and together with Luzma we had an unforgettable day; They will always be welcome to my house or the beach apartment.
An affectionate hug:
Jorge y Luzma
Everything looks just like it does in the pictures.
We arrived late at night and quite tired. It was good to see how spacious and lovely the Villa was, sometimes pictures can be deceptive but In this case it was all we hoped for.
We could have spent the entire holiday exploring the surrounding area in the mountains but there was so much else we wanted to do.
The pool was cleaned every day and it's really .not far from the house at all.
There are fruit trees and good amenities like a barbeque.
We really couldn't have asked for more.
Jorge was very helpful with directions to places and advice. Altogether a wonderful holiday.
Peaceful holidays in a very pleasant house
Jorge and his wife are a very nice and careful couple, always available in case of need, yet very discreet. We were warmly welcomed and were very lucky of enjoying the fruits of their abundant natural orchard. The house is very spacious, clean and comfortable with everything you need inside. There is a beautiful panorama over the ocean and La Gomera. The place is really quiet, which has been truly appreciable. The property has a big terrain, with a lot of flowers, plants and trees where it is agreeable to have a walk, eat, relax or take the sun. As a Swiss couple, we have some expectations which have been fully met with this booking. We can only recommend the house to any future guests. Thank you so much Jorge and wife for such an unforgettable stay !
Alexandra and Philippe, are those few "Perfect" tenants, respectful, nice and polite, orderly, it's nice to spend their vacations at home; that's why we can only invite them to come whenever they want and receive them with their spleens open.
thanks Alexandra and Philippe you know where you have your home in Tenerife
Comfortable house with lots of character
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable for our large group and we were welcomed with fresh avocados and lemons from the orchard. Loved the animals living in the garden.
Really happy recive nice people in my house...Thank You.
Very different from our 'norm'
We were 2 couples aged 74-82. The property was as described by the web-site and the photos accurately cover the whole site. I FULLY endorse the wonderful reviews written by previous customers. Jorge and Louisma looked after us very well.
Previous reviews pointed out all of the good things but, probably because of our ages, and because we did not study the photographs carefully enough, we had some surprises and concerns when we arrived. They were NOT Jorges fault.
Firstly, when you meet Jorge at the pharmacy and follow him to the house, when you cross over the blue motorway bridge watch not only Jorge but the landmarks where you turn off on to the little track leading to the house. We did not, and although it is simple, we could not find the house when we returned from our shopping trip later in the day. Jorge very kindly came up from his home in Gigantes to rescue us. We took my SatNav but; although fed with the correct address, it took you to the road higher up in Chio. However, the SatNav was very useful for finding restaurants and other places looked up on the internet, for showing you the myriad of blind hairpin bends etc and for bringing you back to Chio.
We had not registered that the pool and alfresco dining area were about 50 metres from the house, up a steep little slope and across the secure games area; we had stupidly expected it to be attached to the house
The bar-B-Q area (with children's swings) is currently not fit for purpose; it is over-grown with grass and weeds, and is full of discarded wood. I am sure that Jorge will tidy it up when he reads this.
The house was very well equipped but we had 3 areas of minor concern:
The stairs to the lower level were steep, had deep steps and no hand rail.
The bath was very large and deep; one of our group had great difficulty in getting in and out.
Water! The cold was superb to drink, but the pressure of both hot and cold was low so when taking a shower , if a tap was turned on elsewhere or a toilet flushed the shower would turn to cold(very) or hot. Good group discipline overcomes this, but we, with our 'senior moments' made a few mistakes.
Overall it was WONDERFUL, but a little too isolated for us. It was a long, narrow, and very hair-raising road to the bottom coast road (frightening for our, back seat lady pensioners.) but there was safer, though longer, route by going up to Chio first.
Please do not be put off by our honest comments, but do be aware of them.
The swiminpool is 25 m exactli to the door really very near, i have takes size this morning, The land is 5.500 m 2 and in finally of hight season , is impossible take of every green becouse house always ocupated. The road in Tenerife i can not change. but i am always improving every things...
