About the property

3 double and 2 twin bedrooms all with fans. 4 shower/bathrooms (3 en-suite).

This beautiful, recently refurbished (completed February 2016), individual five bedroomed villa with heated swimming pool and hot tub is in a quiet part of Lajares. Whilst private it is not isolated, nor on an estate, nor overlooked — perfect for the quiet life or for those who prefer not to wear clothes! It has its own parking within the grounds (close to the front door, flood lit at night), all surrounded by small mature pine trees.

Situated just a few minutes’ drive from superb beaches and the resort of Corralejo. This villa is for multi-generation families or up to five couples looking for very high standard accommodation in a quiet location, but walking distance from the restaurants and bars.

The price quoted includes a weekly clean; the pool heated to 27.5c; the hot tub heated to 37c; pool towels and 3Mbps (both ways) internet connection (although this cannot be guaranteed).

We do NOT charge extra for school holidays, the rate remains the same all year around as we believe this to be fairer to all. The rate shown is for up to six people. However, occasionally we do offer a special couples only rate; discounts for returning guests; and bookings of over three weeks. Please contact us directly.


All the bedrooms have been refurbished and decorated in February 2016 — including new high quality beds, bedding and bedside lights. The bathrooms have all been completely refurbished with new tiles, furniture, mirrors and lighting; the windows are fitted with fly screens..

The main house has a twin and double bedroom on the ground floor with a shared bathroom and over-bath shower. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with en suite, walk-in shower and wonderful views.

The two separate pool bedrooms on the ground floor (a double and a twin) are both ensuite with walk-in showers — both have double doors (with fly screens) overlooking the pool. PLEASE NOTE: These two bedrooms are not part of the main house, and accessed directly from the pool deck, so may not be suitable for children on their own.

All double beds are European King-sized (160cms x 200cms). The single beds are 90cms x 200cms). All beds have high quality mattresses. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and opening windows with fly screens.

We have one good quality camping cot (supplied with mattress and bottom sheet only) available upon request..


The kitchen and utility room are both brand new at February 2016 — and well-equipped with plenty of new crockery, cutlery and glasses. Includes everything you should need including the (twin) kitchen sink — there is an electric induction hob (with extractor fan), fan oven with grill, microwave, fridge-freezer, toaster, coffee machine, electric kettle, juicer, blender and two (yes two!) full size dishwashers. We have provided plenty of utensils and pans so you can cook for ten people. Off the kitchen is a small utility room with 8Kgs washing machine and a wine / drinks refrigerator.


The central open plan communal area has a dining table for up to 10 people — with views through bi-fold doors over the pool deck and surrounding hills. We have one high chair available upon request.

The separate lounge has four leather sofas, a wood burner (which you won’t need very often), ceiling fan, a large flat screen television (with the main English channels some in HD), DVD/BluRay player (and selection of DVDs) and IPTV (channels subject to variable internet connection).


The heated pool (27.5C) is 8m x 4m with built in steps and handrail. Depth varies from 0.8m to 1.6m. The pool heater has just been upgraded. The pool uses the new salt-type cleansing system, this is not chlorine-free, but the reduction of irritating chloramines versus traditional chlorinating methods and the 'softening' effect of electrolysis reducing dissolved alkali minerals in the water are perceived as major benefits. For some people that have sensitivities to chlorine, these systems certainly can reduce eye stinging and other unwanted effects.

The separate hot tub is kept at about 37C, perfect for relaxing after a hard days relaxing. It seats five people, or six if you really know each other!

There are eight sunbeds, two outside tables and ten chairs. The main table easily seats eight and ten at a push for al fresco dining.

There is a full size charcoal barbecue with all the tools (but please supply your own charcoal. PLEASE NOTE: Cleaning the barbecue and disposing of ash is your responsibility).

Garden lighting creates a wonderful effect at night time. There are two levels of outside lighting depending upon what you want to do. The outside lights are additionally controlled by remote key fobs — which means if you return after dark you can switch on the lights.

All lights are LED, saving energy. Roof mounted solar panels heat the hot water — with electrical back-up for when not up to temperature.

About Richard Cobourne

We fell in love with Lajares several years ago. Both of us have travelled the world but keep returning to Fuerteventura.

One day this will be our home, but until then we are offering this delightful house for rental.

Richard Cobourne purchased this villa in 2105

Why Richard Cobourne chose Lajares

You will not be culturally challenged on the island, but if you want all-year round sun and warmth this is probably the place to come.

Its private, without being isolated, comfortable home-from-home.

What makes this villa unique

The island is a destination for sun, beach and water sports enthusiasts. It lies on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico and temperatures here rarely fall below 18 °C (64 °F) or rise above 32 °C (90 °F). There are no fewer than 152 beaches along its coastline.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks to celebrate my 60th Birthday, it easily accommodated 8 people. (We had 4 couples, so each had their own bathroom). Very warm pool and wonderful hot tub. Very good external lighting. Bedrooms had very comfortable beds and bathrooms were modern and clean. Lounge, dining room, and kitchen were of excellent size and in open plan layout which worked well for the large group. Bi-folding doors out to terrace area are a great feature. Kitchen had everything that you would need. Very fast and helpful email communication from Richard and Sue at all times We all had a wonderful time here and did not want to leave.

Excellent experience.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful week in the villa together with friends. The owners are very generous with the amenities and equipment provided, especially the 2 dishwashers. They have thought of everything you could possibly want on holiday. The villa’s pool is easy to use for all ages during the day and in the evening the whole area is beautifully lit. The outdoor hot tub is an inspired touch and very welcoming, particularly if there is a chill in the air.

The villa is situated in a peaceful area with easy walks nearby and a very good bakery within walking distance to the nearest village. The notice board in the villa has useful recommendations for restaurants, local attractions, shops etc.

We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Three Generation Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Arrival was uncomplicated with everything ready for us. The villa was as expected, having stayed there before but on that occasion it was only adults. This time it was grandparents, parents and 4 yr old and 2 yr old grandchildren. The facilities proved more than adequate to cater for the needs of the three age groups and the pool and hot tub worked overtime. The open nature of the villa meant that care had to be exercised in the pool area, in respect of the two small children but that same open nature made it easy to keep tabs on them.

The accommodation is exactly as described so no further detail is needed.

The location of the property means that the local restaurants, coffee shops and hostelries in the village of Lajares are within easy walking distance, as are the local bakeries. The supermarket (medium size but adequate for all everyday purposes) is also within walking distance but a vehicle would be needed to carry back anything more than a two-carrier bag shop.

Similarly, a hire car would give easy access to Corralejo and El Cotillo, the nearest 'soft' beaches about 10 minutes drive west or east. The local bus service also covers these destinations. The island cycle path can also be accessed only a short distance from the villa.

Dining was a mix of local restaurants, occasional meals in and BBQ's. Kitchen facilities were comprehensive, as was the entertainment system/TV.

Bottom line...... would we stay there again?

Yes, please.

Wonderful week in the sun.

  • 5 of 5

Having been to a number of properties in Fuerteventura, over the past few years, this has been the best so far. The house is so perfectly set up, with everything our family group, ranging from 7 to 63 years of age would desire, from the USB points all over for all our devices,well appointed and tastefully decorated rooms and the excellent pool, which was cleaned by Paul every couple of days. Car hire is definately recommended, but restaurants cafe's, bars and shops are within easy walking distance. Well done Richard and Sue.

Wonderful villa and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in February at the villa. 2 families and 3 children. The pool was a lovely warm temperature so the kids could play in there all day without getting cold. The pool and patio area was sheltered so the infamous winds were not an issue so this is really a super villa for all seasons. The hot tub was a lovely touch and also well used.

We are all foodies and enjoy cooking and this villa had all the amenities to enable us to BBQ or use the kitchen for all our meals. A second dishwasher meant that we were able to load up both after an evening meal without having to wait. If I'm being super picky another frying pan and a paella pan would have been nice but we managed!

Plenty of sunbeds, towels and pool toys so that kept the kids entertained.

Location is perfect for peace and quiet and is only a ten minute walk to town for bread or the restaurants.

So nice in fact we have come home and immediately requested the villa for the same time next year!

A lovely family villa in a peaceful location. Our children loved the pool and hot tub! Well equipped kitchen for eating in, BBQ was great and local restaurants were also lovely. (722 was a 2 minute walk away!). Richard was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. Would love to return!

Lajares is a delightful village in the north of Fuerteventura, some say possibly the nicest in the north of the island. Situated between Corralejo town and the fishing village of El Cotillo, Lajares is home to a mixed culture of local islanders and many other people from all over the world.

The island is a destination for sun, beach and water sports enthusiasts. It lies on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico and temperatures here rarely fall below 18 °C (64 °F) or rise above 32 °C (90 °F). There are no fewer than 152 beaches along its coastline — 50 km (31 mi) of fine, white sand and 25 km (16 mi) of black volcanic shingle.

Within 2kms of the house is everything most people need in one place; a choice of great restaurants, cafes and bars; a decent sized, well-stocked supermarket; an awesome bakery; bank; pharmacy; craft shops; Saturday market; surf and bike hire; bus services to most parts of the island.

The village is tranquil with a real sense of community, yet well-placed for exploring.
