Homes on the rocks, Canary Islands

Dwell Magazine
(Photographer, Gunnar Knechtel)
I was struck by the absolute beauty of the above home while reading "Dwell Magazine" today. 
This home is built into volcanic rock in the Canary Islands. 
Here are a few more similar homes that have literally been built into the coastal rock or are volcanic caves made into humble cottages.

This home is near a town of Las Caletillas and built painstakingly by hand by its owners.  Imagine sitting on these rocks to relax and read.  Perfect for a couple but scary for little kids, don't you think?

How about waking up to this view!

Surfboards become benches on this cute little cottage patio. 

The natural shelter afforded by the volcanic cave not only keeps the homeowners cool during the summer, but makes for a striking whitewashed ceiling. 
 Tiny cottage near El Chorrillo.  Definitely cave like.  As long as their were no bats I would be okay living here, especially with such beautiful views of the ocean.

No frills kitchen but a view is what they are in this home for!
Hope you enjoyed a quick tour of unique homes on a Sunday afternoon!
