About the property

Penthouse Apartment in Corralejo, La Oliva, Fuerteventura - Peaceful Location In Parque Natural, Walking Distance To Acua Water Park

This beautiful penthouse apartment has panoramic views towards Lanzarote, the Isle of Lobos, sand dunes and mountains. The property is located in the peaceful Parque Natural area of Corralejo and is only a 5 minute drive to the centre of town (3/4 euros by taxi), local beaches or the stunning sand dunes and famous Flag Beach. The complex has a large communal swimming pool, childrens pool and play area for younger children. Guests will have exclusive use of a large hot-tub, which now has a brand new cover, on the apartment's large private roof terrace.

Corralejo is a growing resort but still retains its Canarian charm with a network of streets to explore and a beautiful harbour area. Baku Village has a large water park and twice-weekly markets. In the town centre, you will find bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, including Chinese, Italian, Mexican and Steak Houses. If you fancy something closer to home, there is a small bar and Pizza snack bar close to the complex, and a large modern supermarket opposite. There are also a number of shops and bars within a 15-20 minute walk.

Revisit. As good as we remembered

  • 5 of 5

We stopped here again after looking for somewhere that we could just laze about and relax for a week and get away from it all.

The apartment is kitted out very well and having Nickola (owners agent) on hand for any assistance required is great.

Recent addition of wifi is an added bonus.

The location of a couple of bars and restaurants close by along with the large supermarket over the road makes this the ideal spot.

The hot tub on the roof only adds to the attraction of this apartment. Many an hour spent relaxing and star gazing.

We will definitely be looking to book again if our holiday travels bring us back to Corralejo. Cooking is simple with full kitchen and utensils, dishwasher, washing machine, iron, ironing board.

Many thanks Karen and Tony. Hope to do it again sometime.

Great apartmant. Would recommend highly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment over Christmas. We have stayed in Corralejo before so we know the area well.The location is a mile out of town, but that's good, the town is busy, but the apartment is quiet. Its an easy walk downhill into town, and we mostly got a taxi back. The apartment was clean and brilliantly equipped with everything you could possibly need.The views from the top terrace were beautiful and we spent many evening in the hot tub gazing at the stars. I would highly recommend this apartment. We had a great time. A home from home.

Property was lovely, when we eventually found it,

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely, when we eventually found it, there was a mis-communication between owner or owners direct, we didn't get the number of the apartment, so nearly ended up in a hotel. I asked for the address before we set off for the holiday and thought the numbers in the address was the number of the apartment, oh was we wrong, but all in all had a good holiday, would recommend the apartment but with better communication.

Fabulous roof top apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very helpful before our stay answering all our queries promptly and many thanks Karen for ensuring this would be a great holiday in a top class apartment.

We were not disappointed on our arrival and the description and photographs did not do it justice. The apartment was extremely well presented to a very high standard, clean and tidy with everything necessary to enjoy our stay. There were masses of information on where to go, loads of books to read, maps and a well-stocked DVD library.

The property manager Nikki was very helpful on our arrival helping with the bags and providing additional information.

Opposite is a well-stocked (and cheap) supermarket and within easy walking distance are various bars, takeaways and restaurants. More extensive shops etc are within an easy walk and a taxi is cheap if you don’t fancy a walk up the hill!

Despite going in school holidays it was quiet throughout the stay and the pool was never crowded or busy.

The roof top terrace was an ideal sun trap and the lower terrace afforded the shade when necessary.

The hot tub was a real bonus after a long day on the beach or out exploring the local craft markets and sight-seeing.

Overall a great place to relax and chill out - thoroughly recommended.

Nice Apartment in a Residential Area - Car Needed

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was clean and relatively well equipped. There is a large Mercadona opposite which has loads of food and drink for not much money. There is ample parking opposite. The pool is better than in the pictures and doesn't get full so you can always find beds. The roof terrace is private and catches the sun.

On the first evening we went to use the hot tub and got in, only for brown flakes to unsettle around us. The head rest areas were also dirty. We jumped out and I reported this to Nickhola (spelling), the property manager. She said it had been cleaned regularly but came the next day to check and had the hot tub cleaned properly. The next day it was cold and as all the control labels had rubbed off, we couldn't see what to press to warm it up. After 3 days there I got lucky and it warmed up. After that it was spot on. Fourth day in and the water was cut off. Apparently there was a leak and the building management team had cut off the water. It was off for 24 hours and we had to buy in water to drink and shower. Nickhola did everything she could to sort the problem and kept us informed the whole time.

As it's in a residential area expect noise. On a few afternoons a local dog barked non stop for several hours on end and in the evenings we had to shut the windows to block out the kids playing in the area just below the apartment.

A car is necessary as it's a fair walk to restaurants, however it's only 3-4 euros in a taxi.

The only English are Sky News and religious channels.

The shower is a powerful trickle in which you have to stand over the taps to get under the flow.

The problems were not the fault of the owner and I wouldn't have mentioned them, had they been dealt with fairly. Having known about the dirty hot tub and the lack of water for 24 hours, I feel an apology was in order and the offer of some discount. None was forthcoming and I gave a week after I got home for some contact.

Owner's Response: Dear Rachel, Thank you for your review. As you have stated, the issues you have raised were beyond our control, but were dealt with promptly and you were kept fully informed of progress by Nickola and myself. The hot tub is maintained regularly and had recently been refilled, so I expect that the filter may have become blocked by excessive sun cream after this. The hot tub was cleaned and refilled for you, and then switched back on - because of the large quantity of water involved it can take several hours for it to reach the required temperature and you will not have needed to adjust the settings. Water - because of a serious leak, the maintenance company who look after the complex had no alternative but to switch off the water to the apartment. The repair was carried out first thing the following day and the water switched back on. Nickola and I were in regular contact with you throughout and we even offered you the option to find alternative accommodation with a full pro-rata refund of the cost, but you declined. Both Nickola and I apologised for the inconvenience at the time - by way of an apology Nickola agreed to drop off some wine and chocolates for you. If the apartment was really that bad I would have expected you to move out when given the option. TV channels - we do have many more English channels than just sky news and religious channels, including films, music and reality tv etc, as stated in our description. We also have a wide selection of DVD's for use your guests free of charge. The apartment does overlook the children's play park, but this closes at 9.00pm. We are sorry that you feel disappointed as we always aim to give holidaymakers an enjoyable stay in a clean and well cared for apartment at a price cheaper than most basic hotel rooms. I really don't know what more we could have done for you.
