    Location

    About the area

    Coast/Beach
    The spectacular beaches and sand dunes of the Parque Natural are only 1 to 2km away. These beaches stretch for several kilometres and include Oliva beach, the famous Flag beach and Waikiki beach. The dunes need to be seen. This area of town is basically as close as you are going to get to these stunning beaches.

    Golf
    The house is 5 minutes away by car from the Oliva Golf development (under construction and due to open in the summer of 2008). You are a 35 minute drive from the Fuertventura Golf Club at Calete de Fuste (host of the 2004 Spanish Open on the PGA European Tour).

    How to get there
    The airport at Puerto del Rosario is 30 minutes awy by car. I can arrange airport transfers for you at only 50 euros return for 4 people. If there are six people, call me. Car hire is not necessary you are within an easy walk of all amenities. But, car hire is cheap, and if you do hire a car, and there are so many spectacular places to see that it would be a shame not to, you will find that you are only a short drive from the Chipmunks, the mountains and the harbour, the zoo.

    Distances
    It is not necessary to hire a car at this house. The house is actually in the town of Corralejo. It is not 3km outside of town and yet still calls itself Corralejo. You have a short walk to the old town and harbour area and the start of Oliva beach (which streches for miles).

    Further Details
    There is a large local supermarket close by. A bus stop which will take you out and about. You are very close to the Baku water park and market area with ten pin bowling, restuarants etc. There are local bars, bookies etc nearby and the heart of the nightlife is a gentle walk away. A day trip to Lanzarote is near and dead easy.

    "Roof Terrace Heaven"

    We loved this property. I spent a whole week on the rooftop terrace. Beutifully private but with good views above the walls all round 360 degrees. The rear patio was great for the kids. Really safe and secluded. The wifi was fantastic also and the real BBC tv for the world cup football. We found it really handy for the huge Mercadona supermarket and the restuarants. It was great value. Cammy.

    Response to review:
    Thanks for kind words. The roof top solarium is very private and sheltered from wind. There are no neighbours so it is no surprise that you enjoyed. Glad proper TV and wifi made a difference. Kids being safe to play in the secluded and secure rear terrace while adults sun bathe in the roof is indeed a key plus point of the house. See you back again. Iain

    "Nice bungalow"

    A nice small 2-bedroomed bungalow with a lovely high-walled back yard and a high-walled roof terrace on top. The reason I mention the high-walls is that it does a good job of sheltering the wind and also means both areas are safe for small children. We chose not to hire a car, which in retrospect we probably should have done as it's a lot of walking for small children if you want to get anywhere. 5 minute walk up the hill to the big supermarket. 5 minute walk down the hill to the taxi rank (where there are a couple of bars and a cafe). Taxis into the main street/town beach of Corralejo are about 4 euros now. A taxi to the big Flag Beach (much nicer beach than the town beach) is about 5 euros. The bus stop is about 10 minute walk from the bungalow but is 1.40 euro adult fare to the Flag Beach. The cooker broke on our first day but it was replaced by Gary the agent within an hour, so no complaints there. Some of the furnishings in the bungalow are now starting to show their age (wonky kitchen drawers etc) but nothing that would ruin your holiday! Some of the documents that the owner provided are in need of an update (eg taxi prices etc are all out of date, some places mentioned have closed down, and the TV channels available aren't the same as in the document, no sunbeds by the pool etc) The pool was really nice, not heated but warm enough to be a nice cool-off from the hot sun. Most times we had the pool to ourselves, even though it is communally shared by the Las Americas II estate, there was never more than a couple of other people using it. Great price for what you get, and although it's not in central Corralejo, it's still nearer than a lot of the other apartments we looked at that said Corralejo but were actually a few miles away Having a local English couple as the agents was a great source of comfort - they were really helpful

    Response to review:
    Hi Rob. Thanks for your kind words and rating. Corralejo is a funny town. You are right in that the beach in town is not worth going to. You really need to be at Flag beach etc and in this respect being located in Parque Natural (where you were) is actually ideal because you are just a short distance from town cemtre hub and a quality beach. This property (Las Americas) offers space and seclusion. You could rent a small flat with small balcony and be in the centre of town but that puts you even further away from a quality beach. You are also correct in that there are many properties describing themsleves as Corralejo but in fact they are not on the Corralejo map so it is always wise to ask for a landmark, google earth co-ordinate, street name, when making an enquirey to book. I am glad you found the space good and the agents really helpful. I spent last week there and a complete routine maintence visit was carried out ahead of the summer period. All the best, and hope to see you again. Iain

    "A real private sun trap bungalow"

    We were very impressed with this property. Everything was as described and the private patio and sun roof was lovely. My son was revising for upcoming exams so the highspeed internet was invaluable. The apartment was clean, well-equipped and well-maintained. Excellent communication with the owner and the local agents, Christine and Gary. Any queries, I had prior to the holiday were answered within hours. We found plenty of restaurants and bars to keep us busy and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this property and area. The beach and Dunes (literally on the door step) are stunning. We had a great relaxing time there.

    Response to review:
    Jackie. Thanks for your kind words. I am glad the fast wifi helped your son's studying and your business. Fingers crossed on results ! The key thing about the property is the massive private roof terrace (which is also shaded from the wind) and the large private and secure rear patio where kids can play. Why would anyone want to rent a little tiny flat with small balcony in an apartment block above the bars when you can have all of this outside space and peace just a short walk from the town ? Beats me !

    "EXCELLENT CHOICE"

    This property has absolutely everything needed for a self catering holiday,although there were only two of us it is an ideal villa for a family. We particularly enjoyed the privacy of the patio area and sunroof on days when we just wanted to chill out, English TV and WiFi were a welcome bonus. The information Iain provided on every thing was excellent nothing was overlooked right down to a taxi phone number, and the property was immaculate. Great location a 5 minute stroll to a really good supermarket and 10 minutes to Tiffany's Eatery where good portions at reasonable prices are served, just out of the town but not to far. The festival through the town is something not to be missed in March it really is a wonderful atmosphere, walk down the main street with the trucks all decorated and the locals dressed up in the theme for the year, stop at Music Square and enjoy a meal then a taxi back just 3 Euro's. The agents on the island Christine and Gary are only a phone call away and nothing is to much trouble for them. We will never book another package holiday as this was so stress free from the first point of contact to the return airport transfer. We would recommend also return.

    Response to review:
    June. Thanks for your kind words. I am glad you found the location good; close to nice cafe bars and large low cost supermarket (Mercadona) etc. The roof terrace is really private as you state and I am lucky to have Gary and Christine as agents as they help put your mind at rest. I do also think it makes life a lot easier if you have fast WIFI and proper British TV with BBC 1 - 4 and ITV 1 -4 etc show on a modern large flat screen TV. All the best and see you back soon. Iain

    Stayed here for 3 weeks and found this to be a very relaxing holiday.The bungalow is very comfortable and the wifi is very quick and useful to have.The garden and roof terrace enjoy sun all day long.I would recommend this as a great holiday rental.

    James. Thanks for this. I am glad you found the outside areas (roof terrace and rear patio) really spacious and private. Also glad that you found the fast wifi and real 'British' TV (i.e. BBC 1 - 4 and ITV 1 -4 etc) to be of value. Talk soon. Iain

    We will never book a package holiday again. Your villa is a home form home. We particularly loved your fabulous sun terraces and roof solariums - we got direct sunlight from 8.00am through to sun down - very private which was nice. We loved the views and the attention to details gone in to the house. Harry and Maureen Hamil, August 2012.

    About the Owner

    Hi. My name is Iain Cameron. I am 45. I love Fuerteventura and Golf. My golf handicap is 6 and whenever I can I like to chill in Fuerteventura doing not much off anything. I have been renting property on the island for 8 years and pride myself on providing a factual, prompt, reliable rental business and believe that my properties pound-for-pound are the best value for money properties on the owners direct site.
    Iain Cameron.

    Year property purchased: 2003

    Why this location?

    I had travelled a lot in the Canaries. Done many golf holidays in Tenerife and guys holidays in Gran Canaria and family holidays in Lanzarote. I reluctantly booked a package holiday to Fuerteventura one year thinking it this was the poor man's Canary Island. How wrong could I be. It was simply stunning. I had never seem beaches in Europe this good. The low rise building were colourful and looked Andalusian in design (none of that boring white stuff with blue windows or tall tower blocks). The property prices seemed to be about 25% cheaper than the other Canary islands and yet the island was 125% more beautiful. Fuerteventura to me means that once you visit it, you will never go back to Lanzarote or Gran Canaria etc.
