Luxury Apartment with Wonderful Views



Updated: 29-Sep-2016
Apartment in Costa Calma, Fuerteventura - In A Unique Setting, Situated Above The Beautiful Sotavento Beach.

The apartment is finished to a high standard and has a balcony which overlooks the beach just 10 minutes walk away. A roof terrace and a swimming pool with adjacent showers and toilets are also available for guests' use. The complex is situated on a hill in a Natural Park near the town of Costa Calma which is only 15 minutes walk away and where a wide selection of restaurants and shops can be found. However a car is essential to access the full range of facilities nearby. Jandia Playa and Morro Jable, 15 minutes drive south, offer a wide variety of eating places and retail outlets whilst the Oasis Park, one of the island's major tourist attractions, is only 15 minutes drive north at La Lajita. The apartment complex is ideally placed for a get-away from it all holiday or if you prefer an active holiday then wind surfing, kite surfing and beach sailing take place on the Sotovento beach at the Rene Egli Centre below the complex where equipment can be rented and lessons arranged.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had 3 fabulous weeks in your fantastic apartment. The views are amazing. . . . We have been to this Island over a 22 year period and will keep returning definitely to your apartment as it has everything you need. Many thanks. (Trish & Andrew Fealey, S Wales)

'Sejour de 3 semained formidables. Une destination de reve pour se reposer at pratiquer le kite et le windsurf. Une vue sur la mer extraordinaire dans une residence calme et pratique. L'appartement est bien equipe et tres fonctionnel. L'organisation de l'accueil et de l'acces a l'appartement par Jean et Sophie est simple et efficace. Merci pour ces excellents vacances. (Renaud et Katelle et leur garcons, France)

We had a magnificent time! This part of the island turned out to be windier than we initially thought but it was nice anyway. The apartment was great, had everything we needed! Had a fun time surfing in La Pared! Thanks for everything! (Agi, Andor, Aga & Raphael, Romania)

Great accommodation with views to match

  • 4 of 5

We had two weeks at the apartment .Which is fitted out really well home from home in fact. The views are great with sunshine pouring in the apartment all morning.

Only down side is the unmade access road .That aside I would recommend this apartment

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments but because the road crosses a natural park the local government will not allow it to be tarmaced although they grade it regularly. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely and well equipped apartment. The block is set on the hillside with fabulous views. It is outside of Costa Calma and you definitely need a car if you stay here. The owners responded quickly to our email enquiries and in a helpful, friendly manner. The pool area here is clean and well looked after, in face the whole complex is clean and tidy. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment for your holiday. Only downside I think is the poor WiFi. We had to sit by the pool to access it and it was very slow. Not really a problem for us but if you are taking kids who are glued to phones etc, then it could be a problem.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very positive comments about our apartment which are much appreciated. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the WiFi connection within the complex as the signal seems to be temperamental. At the moment we are investigating the cost of installing a phone line so watch this space!

5 Billion Star Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 11 nights for a romantic getaway with my partner. The apartment is superbly equipped, comfortable, clean and of a high standard. The location is quite simply breathtaking. We spent every night on the balcony looking up at a nightsky full of stars, warm sea breeze and every morning breakfast with sights of the most azure blue sea. We spent most days in Costa Calma or Morro Jable and late afternoons by the pool - it was paradise!. Jean and Dave, thank you for the great facilities, we are sure to return!

sunshine and beaches

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well appointed and very comfortable.The views from the balcony of the beaches are superb.The beaches are as good as anywhere and it is a windsurfers paradise.If you tire of the beach,then pool is an excellent alternative.A car is necessary to enjoy other resorts on the island which are all easily accessible from the apartment.Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in lots of apartments in Tenerife and Fuerteventura but this has to be one of the best. This was our second visit to the Playa Paraiso complex but our first to this super apartment. It is equipped to the highest standards and very well maintained. Mosquitos can be a nuisance in the evenings and at night here but the screens fitted to the windows and balcony mean they are not a problem at this apartment. The location is second to none and the view is great, if you do stay here sleep with the curtains open to be woken by the sun rising over the distant mountains flooding the bedroom with that warm morning sunlight! On arrival we we were treated by a welcome bottle of wine and the luxury towels folded into swans on the bed, a lovely touch. Booking was straightforward and Jean answred our questions very quickly. You won't regret booking this apartment.

From the Owner

We lived in Australia many years ago and when we first saw the Sotavento Beach it reminded us of the beaches near Sydney where we lived. The apartment complex was just being built overlooking the beach and we decided to buy one of the apartments to be reminded of years gone by.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Puerto del Rosario at 60 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Costa Calma at 2 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Morro Jable at 12 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Jandia Playa at 10 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : FV2 at 500 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Costa Calma at 2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Sotavento at 500 Metres Car: necessary


The 10km long golden sandy beach of Sotavento starts at Costa Calma and ends at Morro Jable and is ideal for beach walking. There's access from the complex to the beach which is just 10 mins walk down the hill where beach facilities are available. Wind/kite surfing/beach sailing equipment can be hired or lessons arranged at the Rene Egli Centre. There is a board surfing beach at La Pared on the west coast where the waves are bigger. There are steps down to this beach but it's worth the effort.


The airport at Puerto del Rosario is 1 hour's drive away from the apartment and so car hire is necessary, although transfers can be arranged if required.


Costa Calma is the nearest town at approx 2km away whilst Jandia Playa and Morro Jable are further south but are still only 15 mins drive away. They all have a wide variety of restaurants, pubs, weekly markets and shops. Caleta de Fuste is 45 minutes drive north from the apartment where you will find a shallow protected bay, a busy little port, the Atlantico Center (a shopping complex with a multi-screen cinema and bowling alley) and golf.

Further Details:

In July each year, World Cup windsurfing and kite surfing events are held over a 2 week period on the Sotavento Beach. These take place at the Rene Egli Pro Center below the apartment.

The Oasis Park at La Lajita is less than 15 mins drive away and is the island's biggest tourist attraction. There is a zoo, a large botanical garden and cactus park, camel rides and numerous animal shows. The park also has two restaurants.

If you fancy a change from sun bathing, other activities are available in the area. These include snorkelling, deep sea fishing, horse riding and go-karting to name but a few. Details about these pursuits can be found in the apartment's information booklet.

Driving around the island, there are several places of interest for the visitor. Pajara, inland from Gran Tarajal, is the administrative centre for the region, and has a church dating back to 1687 with an Aztec-influenced door. Driving northwest from here is Ajuy which has a coastal walk along the rocks leading to spectacular caves. From Ajuy you can drive to Betancuria, once the island's capital, where the Church of St Mary dates back to 1410. If you continue driving north to the top of the island you will reach Corralejo where you can take a ferry across to Lanzarote for the day.

Information on other places to visit is available in the apartment.

The view from the apartment is amazing and one which we never tire of. To wake up in the morning looking out at the ocean is a special treat.
