About the property

Villa in Corralejo, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands - Private Spacious Villa Within Walking Distance Of Europe's Top Surf Beach

A proven favourite amongst our Fuerteventura villas. This is a delightfully furnished Arabesque styled 2 bedroom villa, sleeping 4 people, sited in the traditionally exclusive part of town. It is only a 15 minute stroll from the high street of the main tourist centre of Corralejo, and 5 minutes walk from the internationally famous 7 km stretch of white sand starting with 'Flag Beach' kite surfing/ windsurfing centre of Fuerteventura. This area of town is as close as you are going to get to these stunning beaches.

This villa is within easy walking distance of supermarkets, town bars, restaurants and the resort water park. Casa Luka is a fully equipped detached property, offering you the perfect facilities for a private, self-contained break. It offers a unique 20’ long, 1.3 m deep Roman style heated pool (guaranteed 27 to 29 degrees centigrade) with wide sunken steps to enjoy refreshments, accompanied by a sunbathing area to the front. To the side is a private al fresco dining area and full size masonry barbeque. Additionally, there is a large roof terrace equipped with sunloungers which looks out over the ocean to Lobos Island and neighbouring Lanzarote. The perimeter of the property protects you with walls supported by discreet screening, making the gardens and pool area both child friendly and very private. A dip in the sea is a mere 500m away. Transfer time from Fuerteventura airport is just 35 minutes. A hire car for this villa is not essential, but it is useful should you wish to explore other parts of this fantastic island.

Inside Casa Luka has a spacious living room and dining area combined, leading on to the separate fully fitted kitchen equipped with full oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, a washing machine and dishwasher. The lounge has two large comfortable sofas, fast Wifi is provided free of charge.The villa has two double bedrooms with spacious wardrobes, one with a double size bed and one with twin beds. An infant cot is provided with no extra charge if required. Each bedroom has its own French doors opening out to patio areas within the walled gardens. There are two bathrooms, one with double basins, bath, shower, toilet and bidet. The other has a single basin and toilet. Large ceiling fans are fitted throughout to keep the inside cool and airy.

Fast wifi feeds a large smart tv for on demand channel and radio apps plus a courtesy villa Netflix account.

Additional features of Casa Luka location:

* Corralejo is a busy resort with entertainment bars and restaurants centred in the downtown/ harbour region. Casa Luka is 15 to 20 minutes walk away from that area so it benefits from tranquility when that is needed but also affords easy access to the varied nightlife when that's a priority. It has the best of both worlds.

* The nearest supermarket (Hiperdino) is only an 8 minute stroll from Casa Luka sited in the popular El Campanario Shopping Center and this is important for a self catering holiday. There is nothing that can't be purchased here and usually at significantly lower cost than other parts of Europe.

About Andy Want

In the 20 yrs since purchasing our first overseas rental property we've worked hard to perfect every aspect of the villa rental experience and in 2017 we expanded our range of villas to 1 three bedroom villa, 1 two bedroom villa and 1 one bedroom villa in some of the most desirable locations. At regular intervals we inspect and ensure that standards of maintenance are kept at their very best. In 2012 we further expanded our range of private rental units to include a refurbished Welsh cottage in an area that has the highest concentration of outdoor activities and attractions in the whole of the UK - Snowdonia. Our association with that area spans 20 yrs.

Andy Want purchased this villa in 2002

Why Andy Want chose La Oliva

This is our 2 bedroom villa and it is a proven favourite for a smaller family group or just 1 couple seeking a peaceful get away but within a short walk to the beaches and resort attractions. It's superbly positioned and we've put a lot of thought into the equipment levels and furnishings at this property. The 20 foot long private swimming pool is a delight to use and in 2016 we supplemented a solar pool water heating system with an electric back up to guarantee 26-29 degree water temperatures every week of the year. As with all our properties we constantly monitor the furnishings and equipment and reinvest lots of time and expense in keeping them to a high standard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Just thought I’d let you know what a great time we had at your villa. As soon as we got there it felt homely and relaxing. We’ve never had a villa break before and we found it so much more relaxing. We’d recommend Casa Luka to anybody. It’s in a quiet spot, but easy walking distance to beaches and restaurants”.



"Just wanted to say thank you so much for an amazing holiday, it was just what we needed two weeks of total relaxation! The villa (Casa Luka) was more than sufficient and we couldn’t fault the location. Thanks also for answering my queries very quickly and for being so helpful”

March getaway

  • 3 of 5

We stay in a lot of "Owners Direct" properties both in the UK and abroad as villas in Fuerteventura go,this is a average property in a good location near to bars, supermarkets etc...There are no real views, but we didn't care as it was a chill out week.The pool was lovely and had been recently refurbished, it was March but we still managed to have a swim.Outside space, is plentiful though overlooked by the hotel opposite.to counteract this, move closer to the fence no problem then.The shade is lovely by the doors but in March was a bit of a wind tunnel.

Inside, kitchen was supplied with everything you need,if you cook.Mattresses are foam as I have already commented to Andy not my cup of tea but will probably suit others.

Although there is a covered area, our only recommendation would be a freestanding umbrella that could be moved to give shade if children are in the pool etc...(Hotter months)

As a personal touch Andy turned up on the Sunday during a storm and unplugged the drain covers, then turning up Monday to check everything was ok.

Owner's Response: Pleased you enjoyed your stay. We've provided parasols in the past but they don't last very long as they get damaged whenever there is a brisk breeze. The hotel opposite is at the other side of the street and every hotel room balcony faces away from the villa. We have recently renewed the villa matresses so we will monitor guest feedback carefully on that point and renew them again should this be needed. Your feedback is very much appreciated thank you.

Good week away.

  • 3 of 5

Hi.

When we arrived on the first day we were a little disappointed as the villa was quite tired and dated. In addition to this there were obvious signs that a lot of mould had recently been removed from the walls and ceilings in both bedrooms. Not great as we had our four year old son with us. The owner did contact us about this once we were there, but at that stage there was nothing we could do.

The main bathroom only had a very small cylinder. This proved very tricky when all three of us needed to shower of an evening as we had to wait for the hot water to heat up again.

One other small gripe was the pool. Nothing wrong with the size. Only small, but this is expected with a villa of this size. However, the first day we arrived it was cold. After speaking with the owner we discovered the heating was only on from the morning until the evening. As it was a cooler time of year it seemed to be struggling to maintain temperature. He then agreed to have the heating on twenty four hours a day, but this took a few days to kick in. We later discovered the pool had a leak and seemed to require regular top up's. I assume this also added to the colder temperature of the water.

Aside from these issues Andy was quick to speak to us about any concerns we had. The villa was in a great location and was a good base for walking into town or the local supermarket.

Thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We have owned this villa for 15 years and like most Canarian properties condensation marks occasionally appear on the walls of some rooms. It's been an exceptionally dry winter this year so we also know the condensation is caused by, in the main, wet towels being left indoors followed by all the doors and windows being kept shut. These villas don't have central heating so the moisture from the towels remains stagnant in the rooms. The week after your holiday we completed a 'maintenance week' when the rooms affected were treated and redecorated. They are back to pristine condition now and I'm sorry there wasn't sufficient time to make them that way in between the last guests leaving and your arrival the same day. I am also sorry there was some difficulty regulating the pool water temperature just in the early part of your holiday. You are correct that this was down to water loss. We are now pleased to report that the pool has had a complete refurbishment in the last fortnight. A very competent local fibreglass company has renewed the entire pool at significant expense and we are delighted with the finished project. It's now effectively a brand new pool and is guaranteed for the next 10 years. There are, unusually for this size villa, 2 hot water boilers a 50 litre for the bathroom and a 30 for the kitchen. Normally it's just one. A 50 litre is capable of supplying 4 guests with 4 short showers one after the other but it's not sufficient for a bath filled with hot water and showers at the same time too. We will look into installing a larger capacity boiler if this item causes difficulty on another occasion. Thank you once again for the review.  Best regards, Andy.

Lovely villa in a quiet neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Lovely 3 week holiday over the Christmas period in a lovely villa ideal for 4 people. Really well kitted out and a good team of people looking after the villa. Easy to book and excellent communication and when we had a couple of issues ( which could have happened at anytime ) one phone call to Andy and they were sorted faster than our expectations . Would really recommend this villa for anyone that would like a carefree and relaxing holiday in a lovely quiet neighbourhood. Bonus having Netflixs in the evenings. Many thanks Andy for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Review very much appreciated and I'm obviously delighted you had such a relaxing time. I'm pleased you mentioned the new smart TV we had installed very recently. I had initial reservations that the guest accounts for the TV that I set up may be problematic for guests to use. Your review has entirely dispelled any doubts I had about that. We will now be rolling out this TV set up to our remaining 2 holiday rentals. Thank you again for your feedback. Best regards Andy.

Great location and Pool

  • 5 of 5

Had a great winter break at Villa Luka. Appreciated the welcome pack. Everywhere within walking distance. All you could want or need at villa, including hairdryer, beach towels. Pool lovely and warm. Great instructions and information provided which was a god send when one of us was taken ill. Value for money and quiet sheltered location. Will revisit.

Travel:

Fuerteventura has one international airport which is amongst the nicest airports you could wish to spend time in. There are large aquariums fitted in some of the walls and everything is spotless.

A hire car is not essential but it is a good idea if other parts of this fascinating island are to be explored.
