Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful stay at this villa in October 2017 with my very large family (16 in total). The Vila has everything you could want including indoor dining area ideal for the younger children, a large outdoor dining area for the adults with outdoor lighting. the swimming pool was heated and was well used by the whole family who had great fun. The villa is situated a 15 min drive from both west and east cost beaches although the east coast beach was by far the better one for families. The great waterpark is also only 15 minute drive although the zoo is just over the hour but well worth a visit. Not a lot to do in the local village of Lajares but plenty of options. Fantastic memorable holiday. Patricia

Not what we expected!

  • 3 of 5

We booked this villa for a large family group to celebrate a milestone birthday. The house is very large and in a very beautiful location, no nearby streetlights which made star gazing wonderful. It is a pleasant 10 minute walk into the village of Lajares where there are a handful of restaurants and bars.

The inside of the villa is quite basic - beds are simply mattresses on wooden platforms on the floor and the showers in most rooms aren't in separate cubicles, they are situated just off to the side of the bedrooms. The outside garden is very large but most of it is unusable due to the plants growing everywhere. When we arrived the garden was in a bad shape - apparently there had been bad weather before we arrived although the villas around us didn't seem to have suffered in the same way. The pool was large and heated but there were several loose tiles along the edge - luckily we didn't have any young children in our party otherwise there could have been an accident. There is a small terrace outside the living room but although the villa is set up for 18 guests there was only 6 sun-loungers and outside seating for 5 people - not sure where the other guests are supposed to sit if is fully occupied. Luckily we have stayed in Lajares several times so took ourselves off to the Ferreteria in town and got some plastic garden chairs so our elder guests had somewhere to sit. Carlos did provide us with a new BBQ which is a good size and we used it several times. Some of the low-level plugs were simply taped over, again if there were small children this could be a hazard and some of the light fittings were just bare wires dangling down. The sofa's in the living room are just blocks of concrete with cushions on them, very practical but they would benefit from some thicker cushions. All in all we were quite disappointed in the villa considering the price we paid - we have stayed in Lajares several times over the past 5 years and although the villa's have been smaller they were better furnished and equipped and a lot cheaper. Some simple changes could make this a truly wonderful place.

Owner's Response: I am not going to spend too much time answering this review. Just to say I have 90% of occupation ,95% of satisfaction and 5% of complain, about the swimming pool i already explained you i wanted to change it by wood deck but the wood didn´t arrive in time. About the plugs taped ,a guest with small children taped it and i thought it was a good idea so I just left it like that. About the light fittings I really don't have any idea what are you talking about. About the garden, i never said i have an english garden. About the rest , before complain read the description of what you have in the house, check the pictures and you will see you have more furniture in the house than in the description. About the price , please, find another 400 square m house with 4500 square m land with a big heated swimming pool at that price and let me know, but i am very sure it will be twice the price of mine. The house has 13 years old , that is the reason of the low price, in September / October I will do renovations on the house and the price will be higher then. And please don t call me again for renting the house, I don´t need guest like you Carlos

Quiet holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

We found Carlos to be most helpful. We found the village very nice and had everything we needed, pharmacy, supermarket selling fresh veg, fish and meat, some bars and pizzeria's, even an english owned restuarant El Canelo I think! the french bakery sells delicious breads etc. The house was huge, kitchen was very well stocked, the pool was clean and cleaned 2 times in our weeks holiday, the house was spotless. A few flaws, but we will return as we found after many years of holidaying in fuerteventura this was one of the best we have stayed in. Also the house is in a very quiet spot, in this house and the garden it is so quiet and yet only a ten minute walk to the village (the walk also passes some beutiful houses). four adults and my 3 year old boy stayed here, it is all one level, no steps i seem to remember. Carlos, thanks for a most enjoyable holiday, Richard

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Carlos for an absolutely fabulous holiday. The villa was fantastic exactly what we were looking for. Very spacious, big swimming pool and lots of garden area. We felt very relaxed and at home. We were a party of 11 people ranging from 6 to 60 years and everyone loved it. Lajares is a wonderful village, central to everything you would want and need. I would recommend hiring a car though if you want to see some of the fantastic sights around the area. We loved every minute of our holiday and I would highly recommend both villa and area, it was one of the best holidays we have had, in fact we enjoyed it so much we purchased our own villa in Lajares whilst on holiday!

Traumhaftes Haus, gute Lage zum erkunden der Insel

  • 5 of 5

Ein riesiges, architektonisch atemberaubendes Haus das keine Wünsche offen lässt. In Wirklichkeit ist es noch schöner als auf den Bildern. Küche ist gut ausgestattet, lediglich die Messer müssten mal wieder geschärft werden. Ansonsten alles Tip Top!

Wir kommen definitiv wieder

Ein wundervolles Haus mit ganz viel Atmosphäre

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles war für uns perfekt: Zimmer, Einrichtung, Außenbereich, Pool...sogar das Wetter hat mitgespielt - wir kommen garantiert wieder! Großer Dank an Carlos und Erika.

Lajares is a non tourist village just 15 minutes by car from the tourist town of Corralejo on the north coast of Fuerteventura. Lajares is a quiet place situated just 10 minutes away from the beautiful non crowded beaches of the north and west shore of Fuerteventura. Lajares is situated in a rural environment surrounded by some of the most beautiful volcanoes and breathtaking views. Great for hiking and biking, Lajares has a supermarket, great restaurants, bakery, pharmacy, and for night life there are 2 pubs with live music. If you want to live among the locals this is the place to stay

Other Activities: kite surfing
