60sq.m Roof Solarium, 50sq.m Rear Terrace: BBQ, 3mb WiFi, TV (BBC, ITV, C4)

Overview

Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
Town Bungalow - Lanzarote View, Private Sun Terraces, Swim Pool, Wifi, BBC TV

This property is in a great location for holidays. It is in the upmarket Las Americas complexes. That is, it is in Corralejo Town. It is not way out of town trying to convince you of a town location, as seems to be common these days (for example La Cappellenia and others).

This well located corner plot bungalow can sleep up to six. The bungalow is located in Corralejo Town (near 'Baku' water park). The complex is Las Americas, which is a secure gated community. It is an easy walk to the start of parque Natural beaches and to the town centre bars and shops. The property is on the same row as the swim pool which is close by (most are not), so this is also a plus for the house.

It will easily sleep 6 in the property's two bedrooms (bedroom two can sleep 3) and one of the three seater bed settees in the living room.

There is a spectacular 60sq.m roof solarium with views to Lanzarote and the mountains. There is a secluded 50sq.m tiled rear patio with barbecue (BBQ). The two terraces are very private and secluded from winds. There is private off road parking.

There is a communal pool and infant pool. High speed ADSL 3MB (fast internet) - digital, straight down the phone (10 times faster than most). There are reclining back sun loungers, outside eating table with 6 chairs, parasol.

A short walk from the beaches of the Parque Natural and main shops / bars. A good location in Corralejo. Mercadona Supermarket and Tiffanys cafe bar are close by.

About the Owner

Hi. My name is Iain Cameron. I am 48. 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 8 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

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. Harry and Maureen Hamil, August 2012.

Lovely villa, rooftop sun terrace, peaceful locati

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with wonderful roof top solarium terraces in an ideal peaceful location.

Thanks for a great holiday. My two kids loved the pool area. It was quiet and safe and we found the infant pool useful for the youngest. My eldest daughter found the roof terrace perfect and she claimed this for herself for private sun bathing ! Husband and I took the rear patio and we had plenty room and it was private as well. The wifi was useful to all of us and it was a big bonus being close to a great supermarket and close to the waterpark. I thought the water park was brilliant and would recommend to all. It was also great that we could park outside the front door in our private driveway and it was really good to know that it is a private gated complex that was so peaceful because of this. Great property in a great location with lots of great features. Jayne

Owner's Response: Thanks for trusting me with your holiday Jayne. I am glad you found the house to be fantastic value or money and as advertised. As you say, very secluded with lots of great sun bathing at the house and on the roof terrace. Iain

Nice Weather.

  • 3 of 5

The Villa is in a good location and has everything that you would require. The complex is safe and secure with coded gates to get in and out.The pool is really great and like most we had it to ourselves for most of the time. The walk into town from the Villa is a good 35 minutes!

What we were disappointed with is the cleanliness of the villa on arrival. The bathroom taps and sink still had toothpaste all over it from the previous occupants and the kitchen sink was dirty to say the least!

There was no sun canopy or hammock as pictured, Also no sunbeds at the pool. Although the Villa does have some nice wooden ones, these are not practical to drag through the house and to the pool. Perhaps the owner can purchase some to make life easier? Also no access to the pool at Las Americas 1.

BUT BY FAR THE WORST POINT. If you have young children or just like piece and quiet then BE WARNED. You are on a residential estate and next door but one has 2 dogs that they kept outside day and night and all they did was bark! And i mean bark!!! Kept us all awake at night and impossible to cat nap in the garden as the damn things wouldn't stop. Owner was out most of the day and locked them out.

Owner's Response: Matt. Sorry we were only three star. I will look in to points you made. Noise is news to me and there has not been pool issues before and house is normally spotless. Sorry. It is not my experience thus far but I will investigate. Iain

Everything you need - Excellent place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay for you to explore both Correlajo, the many wonderful sandy beaches and the rest of the Island.

The outside space is wonderful with plenty of space and the BBQ is excellent, we made good use of it during our two week stay. All the usual kitchen equipment is there including a BBQ utensil kit.

The property is in a secured complex behind gates and the shared swimming pool is huge and was nearly empty most times we visited. The pool is only 20metres from the property.

We had a hire car to explore the Island, but walked into Correlajo most evenings which took a leisurely 25-30 minutes to the start of the shops and bars and then another 10 minutes to the harbour area.

Jane the local contact is lovely and the owner supplies a very detailed welcome pack upon booking, with some very useful information and if we visit the Island again we will definitely consider this property.

Thanks

Alex

Lovely bungalow with amazing roof top solarium

  • 5 of 5

2nd time at this rental, wont be the last. Everything we needed and the owner was most helpful last time and this time (great patience for some of our daft questions... ). the private roof is stunning IS totally private and not overlooked,. nice & secure for our grandkids too, who can be handful. didn't need a car due to the ideal location, taxi rank close & fares cheap-only 3 euros to the harbour but mostly we walked (10 mins or so). hard to drag the kids away from the pool they just loved it. the bungalow is great value, we looked at loads but we can honestly say this is the best value one in such a great location. Had everything we needed & more than we expected, spotlessley clean & a credit to the owner (Ian). an excellent rental experience, will book again.

BEST HOLIDAY LOCATION EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting with Iain but 1st time in this property. I have always found Iain to be honest, courteous & extremely helpful. We are a family of 4, 2 adults, a child & a lovely moody teen 😂. We had a FAB holiday here. The house is just beautiful, it has absoloutely everything you need on a holiday and more!! There is a folder with lots of information about the area provided. The house was SPOTLESS clean. The roof top solarium is a sun trap if you like sunbathing ☀️. The back yard is well kept & has the sun for the most of the day, thankfully it shades in parts as the evening goes on (there was a heatwave when we were there😅)We were greeted by Jane who is lovely & a great character. There was milk, tea, coffee & water on arrival, everything you need to get your bearings & shake the flight off you 😉. Jane was great for pointing out the local area spots and some recommendations for food etc. The pool is great & very quiet, it never gets crowded, we had it to,ourselves a few times. The only small thing regarding the pool is the sun loungers, they are now locked & each house has to have their own. Some of the locals took the lounger back from us as it was theirs(or so they said) but this wasn't a problem for us as we don't sunbathe & just used 1 lounger to put our towels etc on. The pool is ridiculously close to the house 😃 just brilliant as our 10 yr old thinks she is a mermaid! So down in mornings for swim, home for lunch & R&R & back down for an evening swim. It is about 15-20mins walk into the strip but it is a lovely walk. There are also taxis just 5-10mins walk away outside Tiffanys & the few local shops there & they are only €4.the big plus for us was the very large supermarket only 10 mins up the hill. This has EVERYTHING you could possibly need & is the biggest & cheapest in the town😃. We would recomend Clarkies Irish Pub just around the corner from the taxi rank. Very big portions for a fraction of the cost that's in the town, they stop serving food at 5pm but do snacks after that time. We really l❤️ved this house & the location. I don't think anyone could find anything negative about this house & location. My husband didn't want to put up such a good review as he said it would push the demand for the house up & probably shoot ourselves in the foot for rebooking 😂!! Definitely going back here next year. We will be in touch Iain with dates. Thanks again for a great holiday 😃☀️

Excellent size,lovely and clean good location

  • 5 of 5

The house was a good size and clean. Everything in the kitchen you might need. We did make good use of the BBC as the weather was scorching all week, also made use of the pool to get cool.

We went to relax and unload some stress from our jobs

And this was perfect. We hired a car, so we went up the mountains and able to go to cottillo which was lovely and able to get in the sea. We would definitely book again as fuerteventura is a favorite for us, we met there ten years ago .

Thanks to Jane as well, very helpful. Regards Val.

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 be. 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 6 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Tiffanys at 500 Metres Nearest Golf : at 1 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Oasis at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Flag at 2 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Coast / Beachs:

The spectacular beaches and sand dunes of the Parque Natural are only 1 to 2km away. These beaches stretch for several kilometers and include Oliva beach, the famous Flag beach and Waikiki beach. The dunes need to be seen. This area of town is basically as close as you are going to get to these stunning beaches.

Supermarket and Breakfast Cafe etc

There is a large Mercadona Supermarket close to the house. You can see the bill-board sign from the roof terrace. In the opposite direction, the landmark Tiffanys breakfast bar is only a few hundred meters away also. There are a range of shops here. You are well located. There is taxi rank and bus stop here also for exploring further.

Travel and Airport Transfers:

The airport at Puerto del Rosario is 30 minutes away by car. I can arrange airport transfers for you at only 80 euros return for 4 people. If there are six people, call me. Car hire is not necessary you are within an walk of all amenities. But, car hire is cheap, and if you do hire a car, and there are so many spectacular places to see that it would be a shame not to, you will find that you are only a short drive from the Chipmunks, the mountains and the harbour, the zoo.

Distances / Location:

It is not necessary to hire a car at this house. The house is actually in the town of Corralejo. It is not 3km outside of town and yet still calls itself Corralejo. You have a short walk to the old town and harbour area and the start of Oliva beach (which streches for miles).

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. The USP of this property is the space and views. In truth, pound for pound for pound, there is no better value. It blows away most properties. 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 13 year track record, as evidenced by c539 - one of the original Owners Direct numbers.
