Villa Consuela on the Beach Private Pool, Sauna and Sea Views

Overview

Property

Villa at Galera Beach, Corralejo, Fuerteventura - In the Heart of Corralejo, Lovely Stroll to Sand Dunes

This Lovely villa is on the seafront with spectacular ocean views of the islands of Lanzarote and Los Lobos. Two steps down from the pool area and you are on Galera beach, walk to the right along a lovely coastal walk to the famous dunes. The villa itself is on two levels and is fully Equiped.

Fantastic location, villa with a few issues

  • 3 of 5

Location is five star. Or six star. Outstanding. Great view, easy access to everything (try Waikiki Beach bar, the food is amazingly good). Communication with owner good, manager very helpful, instructions on how to get there from airport spot on.

The villa is the last house in a row, which makes it more spacious outside. Pool (we had it heated) is great, no problems whatsoever with chemicals and both myself and my 80-year old mother have very sensitive skin. Showering before and after going into pool as instructed solves the issue.

There was milk and tea and wine (thank you!) upon arrival, which is a nice touch.

We chose the house because of the location (GREAT), big beds (not obvious in Spain) and Internet-access which worked fine. Another main reason for choosing this villa was the Sauna. And this is where the problems started. Sauna has not been working for half a year. The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, which is fine, but the kitchen and living room area are tiny and there are only seating facilities for six.

In summer maybe not so much of a problem, in winter spring definitely not so good.

Cleanliness is an issue. The sunbed covers are filthy. The blankets covering the sofas are ragged and soiled. Chairs and table have seen better days, to the point that one chair collapsed under my husband. now, that could have been due to somebody else having a problem and not mentioning it. Still...

The hob was crusted with dirt, I had to clean it before using it for the first time.

There is cleaning after one week, which is good but unfortunatley they replaced reasonably decent kitchen towels with a fitlthy rag I would not use to clean my shoes.

The headerboards behind the beds are not properly fastened, so when a pillow gets pushed against them the bang loudly. We solved that by shoving a towel between headerboard and wall.

One of the lamps over the oven had been taken out, two outside lamps also were broken.

Basically, what this house needs is a thorough make-over. It won't cost a fortune. We were debating whether to give four or three stars but the owner definitely responded to the issues raised in the previous review and we are confident that this review will also result in improvments. In any case - when passers-by asked us for a a contact address as they wanted to book, we gladly provided that :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, as always the reviews are important to us. All the issues raised have been passed onto the property manager and will be rectified immediately i do not know why the sofa covers and the tea towels are not up to standard, this will not be repeated. i can only assume it was an over site of the manager. yours Raymond

Nice enough villa but a few issues.

  • 3 of 5

The villa itself is in an excellent location and a good size. On arrival I found the villa to be clean and a good layout. The downside to our arrival was that there was no welcome pack which we have always had in any other villa. By this I mean some water, bread, milk in the fridge, some cleaning products but not to even have any toilet roll in the toilet was very disappointing. We had very tired hungry children so we needed to immediately leave the villa to go and food and supplies!

The manager meets you at the villa to show you around the villa and gives you the keys etc. He mentioned that previous occupants had had issues with the pool water and make sure that you shower before and after using it, which I think is standard practice anyway. We did this but unfortunately my children and a couple of the adults got itchy skin from the water. We thought this might be a result of the pool just being recently cleaned and chemicals put it so we gave it a day and tried again. But the same thing happened so we called the manager who came to check the chemical levels in the pool, he put some neutraliser in which helped. The adults were then fine but unfortunately the children still had problems and stopped using the pool. This was so disappointing for them and also we paid an extra 50 euro for the pool to be heated for them. Note there is also a 20 euro charge for wifi for the week. Neither of these costs were mentioned when paying the deposit, in previous villas these costs are included in the overall cost and I have had never dealt in a cash payment before either.

A couple other issues were a mouldy coffee machine and a the step down to pool broke but these issues were quickly resolved by the manager.

I would not return to this villa we have stayed in better equipped ones on the island and perhaps a salt water pool is easier on young skin.

I would recommend before booking any villa ensure you know what is included in the price, how payment is to be made and what supplies will be available in the villa on your arrival especially if you are arriving with young children or later at night.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this villa which has been updated since our first visit. The location cannot be beaten - right on the beach and with the benefit of its' own pool. Our party consisted of myself and my husband, our daughter and son-in-law and our six year old grandchild and the villa was perfect for adults and children alike.

Dealing with the owner was easy - prompt responses to any queries - and on arrival in Corralejo the manager was very helpful.

There are bars and restaurants within easy walking distance of the villa and a short walk along the beach to many more.

Would definitely recommend the villa and look forward to visiting again soon.

Just spent 2 fantastic weeks at Villa Consuela, which is in the perfect location in Corralejo - it has the rare benefit of being right on the beachfront while having its own good sized pool (not a plunge pool like some others we saw).

The villa is on a small gated residential complex, so it is nice and quiet but within easy walking distance to the numerous shops, bars and restaurants on the main road towards the harbour. Alternatively you can walk along the beach to the harbour and it's lovely restaurants which is a leisurely 15 - 20 minute stroll (little longer if you stop off in a bar to watch the windsurfers!)

It’s a good size, well equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. There are 4 good-sized bedrooms, 3 large bathrooms and the kids had great fun playing table tennis, which kept them quiet when they weren't in the pool or watching a movie.

There is an express supermarket at the end of the road that the villa's complex is situated on, and a larger Spar about 10 minutes walk away which is well stocked with everything you could need for a barbecue on the patio.

The owner and manager were great, helpful, and dealt with all queries quickly.

All in all, this villa is in the best location in Corralejo and I would definitely recommend.

Villa Consuela on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Went with my son his partner and two grandchildren, Although it was the first time in Fuerta Ventura for myself and my husband we were very impressed. The Villa was lovely and clean and very well maintained. My granddaughter loved the pool which was heated [aged 8] and my grandson [aged 6 ] loved the beach so we had the best of everything. There were plenty of restaurants and attractions close by. The manager and his family were lovely and provided excellent customer service. I would certainly recommend this Villa to friends and family and would love to stay there again.

Dream Villa

  • 5 of 5

Returned from spending 17 nights in this magnificent villa! Absolutely superb location with stunning views over to Lobas and Lanzarote. Ideal location to watch surfers and go swimming in the sea. The location is approx 10 minute walk to local supermarket and approx 15 minute walk along beach to restaurants and bars, nearest bar is only 5 minute walk away. There were 7 of us and villa had wi fi and full sky sports package which was perfect for the football lovers! This villa has to be seen to be beloved, it's situated in a location that you dream about buying when you win the lotto! The owner Raymond was superbly easy to deal with and always responded to emails promptly! I would not hesitate in recommending this villa, superb location on a superb island!
