About the property

One Bedroom Apartment (sleeps two) La Oliva, El Cotillo, Fuerteventura.

Why not book your 2018/19 winter sun soon!!

Wonderfully shaded apartment in the cobbled alleyways of the old harbour.Situated in the centre of the Old Harbour area this twin / double bedded ground floor apartment is a little gem offering the best possible location; 50 metres walk from the bars and restaurants in this harbour area. The fully equipped kitchen means it is also perfect for those planning a self-catering holiday.

There are miles of excellent beaches to the south of this part of Fuerteventura, and even on a busy day they are too big to be overcrowded. These beaches are popular with surfers, windsurfers and kite boarders, and their colourful sails and kites only add to the scenery. The north beach incorporates several lagoons which provide safe bathing. The circular stone windbreaks (corralles) that are a common feature in El Cotillo surround these lagoons. This beach is popular with naturist because of the available shelter and safe bathing.

For sunbathing without sand try out the gigantic shared roof terrace.

The system is run on a WiFi hotspot provider and can at times not work for some hours due to maintenance.

For a relaxing stay in El Cotillo the Haven is perfect. Positioned right in the middle of the harbour village, everything is on your doorstep. Iain and Jacqui made us feel very welcome from the moment we booked to the day we checked out. The apartment has every facility you could need whilst on holiday, cooking, sunbathing, sleeping or watching a dvd, every need is catered for. Lots of nice places to eat nearby, for eating during the day try El Menditero or at night the excellent Tosho. Both are a short stroll away and are excellent. Big thanks to Iain and Jacqui for being perfect hosts, we will definitely return.

Great location and very good property!

  • 5 of 5

The Haven is a very comfortable, well equipped property. It's location is fantastic with access to the old harbour and to three excellent restaurants within a minute's walk (30 seconds really but that sounds too good to be true)! Other restaurants and shops are only a few minutes walk as is access to the beach area.

The apartment itself is clean and we'll equipped, with pretty much everything you might need. We stayed in and cooked a couple of times and the kitchen was easy to use with everything we needed. There was also a selection of beach equipment available as well a good range of books and films.

Jacqui and Iain were excellent hosts for whom nothing seemed too much trouble and El Cotillo was very much our sort of place where we could chill out and relax away from it all. For a quiet holiday away from it all but with local facilities readily available The Haven and El Cotillo really fit the bill!

Well equipped, well placed and well organised

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Haven. Our booking and transfer were well organised. The Haven contains all that we wanted to self cater, even if it took most of our stay to find everything! The apartment is well situated, convenient for restaurants, supermarkets, El Goloso, the ice cream shop, and midway between north and south beaches. There was even convenient storage for my rented bike! Comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and sofas that were comfortable to sit on. With slight rearranging we had ample lighting and space for our traditional holiday pastime of Scrabble.

We liked the alleyway situation, and were amused to notice that passers by all tended to look in when we had the shutters and windows open.

We have three comments.

First, a general one. Is it not possible to provide an English television news channel? This is a common omission in rented Canary accommodation.

We were a little disappointed with the roof terrace. As it is shared with all the other apartments in the block it is rather unloved and not particularly attractive as a place to relax.

Finally, there was rather intrusive talking from the adjacent apartment (Number 2) every night just after we had gone to bed. It sounded like one half of a loud mobile phone conversation in an unknown language. We realise that we could have been unlucky, and that like us they may have been temporary occupants.

We are already planning our visit to El Cotillo next winter. Can we stay again next year please?

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our apartment after your stay in El Cotillo. With regards to the points raised we would like to offer general comments as follows:- 1, We offer free WiFi in the apartment as most visitors bring a tablet or other WiFi enabled devices which give access to UK programmes via WiFi was chosen as it can also be used by guests of all nationalities. 2, We are not sure what we can do about the roof terrace! There will always be a few other sun beds on the terrace (but rarely used) and the water tanks are unfortunately a necessity. It has also recently had a coat of paint. 3, Although there are only a few apartments in the block we don’t know who was in no 2 at the time of your stay. Sorry Our favourite point of your review is that you would like to stay again next year- you are both most welcome! Kind regards Jacqui and Iain

Wonderful place for deep relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very well equipped, it even has a shopping trolley to help transport the heavy bottles of drinking water. The owner provide clean sheets and towels on a regular basis, as well as beach towels and yoga mats. If you want to cook for yourselves the kitchen is very well equipped. Ideal walking in both directions and swimming nearby in the lagoons amongst the fish was a delight. Most get back to El Cotillo as soon as possible.

El Cotillo

The perfect destination for those looking for a quiet peaceful holiday. If tranquillity is your requirement then Cotillo is the place for you. Fuerteventura has an abundance of white sandy beaches and El Cotillo has some of the best.

A short walk to the north of the village lie the famous lagoon beaches, perfect for swimming and very safe. To the south lies the Playa del Castillo, 2 kms long and used mainly for water sports, surfing, kite-surfing, wind-surfing etc. Further to the south lie the beaches of Playa del Ajibe and Playa del Aguila, both wild and remote. This area is truly the surfing and wind-surfing mecca of the island.

El Cotillo is still a working fishing village and the local boats land most of their catch directly to the local restaurants, so you are guaranteed fresh fish!
