Book a Break in Cave House in Gran Canarias

The Acusa Seca Cave House

INCREDIBLE PLACE!!! Simply breath-taking. A one-of-a-kind retreat that manages to be super functional, clean, yet private and remote with world-class vistas all around you. ✨

Why wouldn’t you want to stay in a cave house? This means of living is the traditional way that residents on the island lived, circa the 6th century. With its roots all the way back in the early days, The Acusa Seca Cave House was excavated from the mountain using traditional burrowing techniques. And now you can stay in it. Do you think they realised when they scooped it out in the 500s that it would still see use 1500 yeas later? That’s a long time to exist.

A Bit About Airbnb

Airbnb are a huge name in multinational travel. They operate all over the world, with their western market particularly strong. Airbnb uses an innovative model that allows you to stay in someone’s house, rather than in a hotel or other accommodations. Sometimes the owner rents out a room and sometimes you have the whole property to yourself. No matter what happens, though, you stay with a local person who has in-depth knowledge of the local area.

Airbnb hosts work hard to earn 5 star reviews. This makes for an excellent experience, most of the time. Traveling with them means your local guide can pass on information to help you make the most of your trip. They can leave you the best takeaway menus from the area, gift you literature on local attractions, and even put together welcome packs for you.

Airbnb began in 2007 when two hosts in San Francisco rented out their properties. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength to become a worldwide guest hosting firm. Users can sign up to rent out space in their own homes or sign up as guests. A review process helps keep everyone aligned.
