    "What you see is what you get" is the expression you mostly can't use when you compare the pictures of a holiday house with the reality when you arrive on the spot. In the case of the casita 'Estrella del Norte' this expression is true 100% and more! Without any doubt it is the 'porche' (= veranda) where you will spend your (rare) cloudy or windy moments with the comforting feeling that you are outside-inside. The porch has been built all along the front side and byside of the whole building, we are talking about 25 metres long and 3 metres wide of bright (sun)light for your reading and writing and meals and gym... The house from the early 1900's has been carefully and beautifully restored with great attention to the authenticity of a typical Canarian house, that comforting harmony of wood and volcanic stone and white plaster. The owner Beatriz was very helpful in the unfortunate case of a few drops in the veranda: the workmen who built the porch last summer arrived the other day and fixed the discomfort in the blink of an eye. This veranda is almost unique in the whole of La Palma and it will upgrade your stay, particularly in winter, with a full 5 points out of 10: it brings the sea and the mountains onto your doorstep. Inside, the house offers everything you need in the kitchen to cook even the most complicated and elaborated meals and desserts. There's a good TV-set in the living room - where you can connect your own dvd-player to watch your favourite series every night, as you can't always be attracted to the Spanish news around 7 pm: you are on a distant island far from Spain and its chaotic politics... From your doorstep you start your endless walks over all the signposted paths through the breathtaking landscape (in two meanings puf puf). You can also walk the Calle Viña Grande up to the main road LP-1 in 8 min to take a bus every hour in whatever direction you want to organise your hiking trips. We lived in January in a house on La Palma in 2016, El Hierro 17, La Gomera 18 and rest assured: Estrelle del Norte in 19 was the top of these four! Don't hesitate - just do it!
