Overview

About the property

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 Dr Iain Cameron

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.

Dr Iain Cameron purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Dr Iain Cameron chose Corralejo

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.

What makes this bungalow unique

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.

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.

Fantastic Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great 12 night stay here in May/June. Property is clean, well kept and stocked with everything you'l need and more.

The rear terrace is a sun trap, well sheltered from the wind, and we sat there until late afternoon before heading up to the roof terrace to catch the last of the days sun. Plenty of seating/loungers on both terraces, and the BBQ on the ground level which we used almost every day. We had the pool to ourselves the majority of the time we used it!

Location is ideal, quiet yet still within walking distance to everything you'll need. Supermarket is a 5-10 minute walk away, with a butcher's for filling the BBQ, some bar's cafe & restaurants likewise, and 15-20 minutes from the main strip.

The TV & wi-fi worked well and never had an issue with. Jane, who looks after the bungalow was lovely and at hand for any issue's or queries. Fresh towel's and bedding changed during stay. Iain the owner was quick to reply to questions and very easy to deal with.

Would advise anyone visiting Corralejo to book a table at "The Ugly Duckling" restaurant. We seen this was no 1 on tripadvisor so booked a table before we travelled. 3 course's for 29 euro's & the food was amazing so we decided to book a second visit before we left. Henrike the owner/front of house will look after you and nothing's a problem. Only a 5 minute walk from Las Americas II complex, on leaving turn right & walk up as far as the roundabout, the restaurant is on the left. Tuxedo's above the shopping centre was also very good.

Highly advise booking the property. We'll definitely be back next time we are visiting Corralejo

Excellent Holiday / Fabulous property !

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the bungalow was fab! The location,the facilities and the bungalow, garden and roof top terrace are all kept in excellent condition. Could not fault any aspect of our stay. The main supermarket is cheap and is only a 10min walk away,opposite the supermarket a lovely bar and pizza restaurant/takeaway. And in the opposite direction its about a 10 min walk to a few local bars, a further 15 min walk takes you into the centre of corralejo with loads of bars, restaurants and lovely beaches. Can't wait to come stay again next year. The owner responds very quickly to emails and the Lovely Jane who looks after the property over there was very helpful and met us on arrival and nothing was too much trouble.

Owner's Response: Debbie. Thanks for trusting me with your holiday and for your kind words. I am glad you found the property to be well located and clean / tidy etc. It is so much better to live in a proper house on holiday rather than a tiny flat. See you next year hopefully. Iain

Ideally located property with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a lovely week here, the bungalow was extremely well presented. Lovely rooftop terrace and garden equipped with everything required for a relaxing holiday. Mercadona was just a short walk up the road which stocked just about everything. The centre of Corralejo is 20 mins walk away or 5 mins by taxi at a cost of €4. Highly recommended.

excellent place for a relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit to Las Americas and as usual the place was very clean and tidy on arrival.The property is very well located for supermarkets Mercadona just 10 mins walk and the Campanario shopping center 20mins. About 30 mins walk to town for the fabulous bars and Restaurants. Nice views from the roof terrace over the Dunes and Lanzarote. Jane who looks after the property is very friendly and helpful she visited us a couple of times. Location generally quiet and peaceful would highly recommend. Many thanks Iain. Rob and Sue

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).
