About the Owner

Hi. My name is Iain Cameron. 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 14 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for use of your house. I called it a flat in my e mails but it is a huge house. Far bigger than the pictures seem to show. We loved the three terraces and the sea views. We have a four and two year old boy and girl and they were able to run around freely and safely in the completely secure and private terraces. We even pulled down the sun canopy to protect them while we lay in the sun. Really enjoyed it. Nice big Kitchen made a real difference. Cheers, Fin and Joy, Sept 20012.



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. Maureen and Harry Hamill, August 2011.

Amazing value sun drenched villa in top location!

  • 5 of 5

We had booked with Dr Cameron before at his Corralejo property so trusting him, we thought we would try his Calete house. It was amazing. A great townhouse with everything you could need. We loved the location close to bars and shops and found the house to be really large and well laid out. We have been disappointed in the past with many Calete villas being much too far up the chipmunk hill but not this one, an ideal location close to shop and a entertainment centre which made choices at night very simple.

The jacuzzi hot tub was great at night and very private. The main front terrace was lovely. There is a gorgeous outside lounge with comfortable furniture which is just lovely for sipping bubbly at night and eating from the BBQ. I think though the large upstairs solarium off the master bedroom is the house best feature. It has bountiful ocean views and waking up to this every morning is just so relaxing. We will come back here and I have to say this house is one of the most private and sun drenched we have booked. It is great value.

Lovely property but not as expected

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from 6 nights in this house, when booking Iain was extremely helpful giving us more than enough information, accommodating to our dates, and making us feel very welcome so thanks!!

Overall the house is very homely and would suit a large group or family perfectly, however, we had a few issues such as the water being cut off for a couple of hours each morning due to building work which had apparently had been going on for some time, which made getting organised to go out a problem. It wouldn't of been an issue if we had been made aware of it and could plan our time out around it. Also, the safe was not working - we did contact Sue about this who tried to fix it but couldn't get a locksmith until after we had left. There was no XBOX just a Playstation but we were disappointed by this as it is in the title of the house advertisement. The TV in the second bedroom started smoking whilst in use one night, after this we noticed there is a fitting for a smoke alarm at the top of the stairs but there is no smoke alarm in it! Luckily nothing major happened but this could have been a lot worse if there was children!

Working in the hospitality industry for a holiday company ourselves, we understand the pressures of cleaning accommodation for customers. We felt like the kitchen could have done with a wipe over again, lots of stuff in the cupboards which look like haven't been cleaned in quite a while, quite a lot of clutter which didn't seem necessary. We did appreciate the bits of food and condiments that Sue left for us from the previous guests. We were provided with 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel each.

Hot tub was a lovely addition which we used most nights however during the day it has no sun as it is in the front garden which didn't realise when booking.

Sue tried to sort out a few problems/questions but we feel like she didn't fully know herself the information we needed (e.g. where the pools were that we were allowed to use/how to work the hot tub/safe).

Don't get me wrong it is a lovely house and the price we payed was good value for money but we feel like the description of the house needs to be more accurate (no xbox/sun very limited/given the wrong wifi code/wifi not great/house location up the hill - not ideal for people that can't walk very far) and a declutter/deep clean in the kitchen!

It is 3euro for a taxi to the town, definitely recommend this for going back!

With some love & TLC this home could be perfect!

Owner's Response: Thanks. Glad you found house good value. The second TV broke and is being replaced. There is an XBOX but had been taken by my house round the corner and ought to have been put back and is now. The file sent is clear on pools - Bahia Sol and Castile Mar. The house gets sun all day. Morning to mid afternoon in front terrace and rear afternoon to night fall at back. I guess weather was dull on your week. The hot tub is uder a canopy as per pictures as it is not normal to put it in a sunny spot. Aplogies for the emergency repair to a leaking water pipe but this was not known to me. Lastly, thanks for enjoying one of the best value and best equipped houses in Calete. Iain

Wonderful relaxing stay at Iain's property in Sept

  • 4 of 5

Very good location, admittedly away from the centre of Caleta, but with bars and shops within walking distance. And what a view from the upper terrace. Neat little secure courtyard to enter through, with the bonus of a hot-tub, which was great for me after a run - I had the pool guy turn down the heat - and a fantastic sunny terrace, very private and a real sun trap. Loved the rear extension off the kitchen area which was great to sit in at night, but also the sliding doors opening up the living area completely. Kitchen fitted with everything you could need. Would I stay here again? Absolutely.

Plus Iain made the booking process easy without any snags or complications, and Sue booked an airport transfer at great value.

Wonderfully spacious villa within easy reach of numerous restaurants & bars located in a quiet residential area.

Highly recommend this villa & this owner. Thank you.

Lovely house fo a relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, we really enjoyed it, it had everything we could have possibly wanted and in a quiet location, perfect for relaxing! The views from upstairs were amazing and the kids loved the hot tub and my husband the BBQ! British TV and reliable wi-fi. We had use of 2 pools, which were around a 10/15min walk away, near to a lovely bakery that had delicious bread and cakes.

Location

From the Owner

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 have been. 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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Fuerteventura at 3 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 300 Metres Nearest Restaurant : at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Calete at 1 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach. Zoo & Waterpark. Golf

The golden sandy beach is located within walking distance, or by the kids 'noddy' train, and it is very safe for swimming making it ideal for all the family. In Calete you will find two good par 70 golf courses with very good twilight rates for occasional holiday golf. There is a set of clubs in the house for your use included in rate. The famous endless beaches of Sotavento and Jandia are 40 mins drive away but well worth a visit. Here you will also find Oasis Park - Zoo, Aquarium, Botanical gardens. To the north, 40 mins will bring you to the white sand dunes and beaches near Corralejo. Here you will find the Baku waterpark.

Travel:

The house is only 10 euros in a taxi from the airport (10 min drive).

Distances:

The house is adjacent to the Castillo beach club. There is a short walk - say 10 to 15 mins - to the Bahia Sol complex pool, which you have a key for. There is a short walk to the Castillo Ma pool complex, where you also have a key. There is a great Pizza parlour with local spanish style wine bar only about 300 metres away - literally at the end of the road - it has great ocean views and is warm and friendly. The house is a further 5 minute walk to the Montecastillo centre (where you will find restaurants and bars), and then only a further 5 minute approximate walk to the heart of town and the main street. This house is NOT at the peak of Chipmunk Hill. A good location in Calete de Fust Town.

Further Details:

The house is within easy reach distance of the beach and the bars and shops. It is only a three euros taxi ride to the Atlantico Centre where you will find a large cheap supermarket (Spar) and a range of great shops, 10-pin bowling, and a multi screen English Cinema. The large out of town value supermarket of Mercadona is also within low-cost reach by taxi.

Further, Calete de Fuste is in the centre of the island and is perfectly located for exploring the rest of the island. For example, you can reach the Baku water park in the north at Corralejo in about 35 minutes. For example, you can reach the La Lajita Zoo in the south of the island at Cost Calm in about 35 minutes.

Facilities

From the Owner

Location. Location. Location and Value for Money. This property is in a great location close to everything you need. Car hire is not essential. That is, we are not stuck way out of town pretending to be in the town. The property is fantastic value for money having a great USP of amazing views and lots of inside and outside space. This is coupled with great Wifi and real proper British TV (BBC, ITV etc). This coupled with modern furnishings, make this a great holiday choice. The many reviews prove this to be the case going back over a long number of years. In truth, pound for pound for pound, there is no better value. It blows away most properties. It's downside is that there is not a communal pool on site - sorry. Although, I have negotiated access to two complexes in town. In truth, this is largely irrelevant in winter anyways as communal pools are too cold to go in to (anywhere) and is easily overcome in summer, as described. You are better choosing the hot tub option for that wee bit of luxury. The wifi is fast and strong and will be ideal if you need to catch up on work or stream video. The real BBC / ITV etc TV helps parents - it is genuine - watch out for the trick of properties quoting English TV only for you to find out that is English but is actually no English channels that you have ever heard of. I have loads of reviews and a 14 year track record, as evidenced by c520 - one of the original Owners Direct numbers.
