Why Casas de Casero chose La Oliva

The main reason we chose to buy our villa was the location.

The views are great - waking up in the morning is a pleasure; the peace and quiet means that you can't help but relax; the climate is fantastic - even on hot days there is a lovely cooling breeze; during the winter season, the sun still (normally) shines - where else but the Canaries can you enjoy a winter sun holiday just over 4 hours from the UK?

We love the fact that the villa is away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, but still close enough to reach the bars, restaurants and beaches within 5 minutes. The local supermarket is well stocked and prices are good.

What makes this villa unique

We have tried to ensure that our villa has everything you could need and have added some extras for both adults and children.

We have provided separate areas to relax, both in and out of the sun. There is a covered gazebo with a seating area & coffee table - a great place for an afternoon cocktail! There's a table tennis table, a basketball ring & even a golf putting hole.

For families with young children, we provide baby & toddler equipment free of charge, but most importantly, we provide some peace of mind for parents with the child safety fence around the pool. It was very important for us to make children as safe as we could and to hopefully allow parents a more relaxing holiday.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Clare S. - February 2013

Brilliantly set up for families - safe swimming pool, lots of facilities, peace of mind. We have visited this property twice and will be sure to come again. A fantastic base of very high quality (comfy beds, plenty of light and space) to explore the island and a wonderful place to relax. Very convenient for Corralejo harbour, sailing over to Lobos and lots of open sandy beaches!



Erica L. - Oct 2012

We spent 11 wonderful days here in October. The villa is well appointed with a gorgeous pool and everything you need to really feel at home. Our sons ranging from 5 mnths - 7 years were all well catered for with toys and games, and of course the pool. The kitchen had the extra bits you don't often find in a holiday rent, but really makes a difference when travelling with young children; The owners went the extra mile, providing us with push chair, high chair and even two travel cots. It truly has everything you want, and I haven't stopped recommending it!

Wonderful relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely villa for a week with the family and we had a wonderful week of chilling out on the sun. The villa has everything you could want and is a real home from home. Seriously, we could not believe how well equipped it was. The pool was the warmest outdoor pool we had ever been in and was as like being in a bath!

Before arriving Lorraine made sure all arrangements were made and sent us an excellent information pack. While there Paul who manages the villa popped round and checked we were ok with everything. Perfect :-)

The villa itself is situated about 5 minutes walk from a large Mercadona supermarket which was great as we stocked up. There isn;t much around the villa itself in terms of bars or shops as you are a short drive from town. We didb't hire a car as we did a private transfer from the airport (5 people) with Shuttle Direct for around 115 euros return. Which meant we had to use taxis in and out of town. Taxis though are cheap and only 5 euros. So either do that or rent a car.

All in all a great holiday which all the family enjoyed. Thank you to Lorraine for everything and to Paul for looking after us.

Best Holiday by far!!! Will be coming back soon

  • 5 of 5

We booked this Villa for April 2015 and all throughout the booking process Lorraine was always on hand to answer any queries quickly which made the difference. When we arrived we where blown away by the villa. It really is 'casa de casero' - home from home!

Me, my wife and our 2 chilldren (10 months and 4) had the best holiday ever. The villa really does cater for families, from the putting green, childrens toys, games, and the most important thing for us safety. All stairs had safety gates and the pool safety fence was the best thing ever, we could relax knowing that the children were safe.

Although we had some amazing weather the pool just didn't get warm enough for the kids early enough, a quick message to Lorraine and Gordan and we had heating. No request was too big or small, and what an amazing friendly couple they are.

If you have kids (or not), and want an amazing relaxing place to stay on your holiday consider these guys! I have already recommended this place to lots of my friends.

Thank you

The Gartons

Putting the ace in Ace 'Ventura

  • 4 of 5

Five of us (two couples + 20 month-old) stayed at CDC for a week in Dec 2014.

We pre-booked a large vehicle through Cicar, and given the size of the Hertz queue at the airport it was a great decision. The drive from villa to airport took 45 mins and was easily negotiated thanks to owner Lorraine’s extensive directions.

Every member of the party was delighted with our home for the week. On night one, I and the other gentleman in the group popped to the local Mercadona and were able to amass three days’ worth of food and drink for under £40. And there was plenty of space to stash it all: large fridge and freezer, ample cupboard room, and a long rectangular breakfast bar for cereals and other nibbles.



Man-and-pregnant-lady took the en suite room, while man-and-lady-and-toddler opted for the four-poster bed with small balcony area overlooking the garden. In both cases all were very pleased. A third bedroom came in handy for little one to dash around in. The bathroom is well placed between the three rooms. We struggled to fill a bath before the water went cold, but all were able to shower with no problems.

Little lady was in her element downstairs. The selection of books and toys is outstanding: our daughter is infatuated with Thomas The Tank Engine and revelled in Thomas Duplo, Take ’N Play toys, puzzles, storybooks and so on all week long. It’s a similar story with DVDs and CDs, with a sizeable catalogue encompassing all tastes. (I shall now soundtracking all future holidays with Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours.)

We weren’t able to use the outside space as much as planned because of bad luck with the weather. Even so, when patches of sun did break through little lady very much enjoyed haring about on the synthetic grass and making use of the slide and playhouse. Her biggest disappointment was going the entire week without using the pool, as it was too cold – not something the owners can control, but Lorraine explained that she is looking to counteract this issue with the installation of a new heating system.

Away from the villa we had a lovely day sampling Oasis Park zoo; found Las Rotondas shopping centre good for parking, browsing and grinning through sumptuous cake and coffee; were left underwhelmed by a visit to Los Lobos island, though enjoyed the boat trip there and back; and (the men, at least) had a cracking night watching Premier League football (every single game shown on a different screen!) at the Brit-run Corner House. All in all, recommended.

Fabulous child friendly villa

  • 4 of 5

We recently visited Casa De Casero as 2 families with 4 children all 3 and under between us. We were apprehensive about whether with our brood we as adults would have any time to relax but thanks to the wonderfully thought out additions to the villa relaxation was actually possible! From the gated pool to the abundance of indoor & outdoor toys, this villa is an absolute godsend for any parent. It's fun & safe environment has everything you need for young children plus Lorraine the owner went our her way to provide extra bits to cater for the 2 youngest guests both aged 1. Extra highchairs, travel cots and bibs etc for feeding times. The Stair Gates throughout meant the children were safe, the only room they could enter was the kitchen so perhaps a higher door handle would help here.

The local town was nice, lots of good resturants reasonably priced and eating in was very very cheap. We ate very well with the help of the large stone bbq at the villa.

The beach in between the Rio hotels was lovely. Shallow clear waters and stretches of clean white sand. Gorgeous.

Regretfully we had a problem with the pool half way through the holiday but this was unavoidable and we were not put off as would definitely visit again.

Thanks for a great holiday.

Family Home from Home

  • 4 of 5

Our second visit to the villa, the facilities are excellent especially if you are travelling with young children. Gordon and Lorraine are very helpful and provide excellent clear instructions to get from the airport. The villa has everything you could need from toys to even a potty! Lovely quiet, safe location but within easy reach if the town and supermarkets. One of the main attractions of the villa was the play area and safety fence around the pool, which meant we could totally relax. Will definitely return.

We love the fact that the villa is away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, but still close enough to reach the bars, restaurants and beaches within 5 minutes.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : FUE (Puerto del Rosario) at 35 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Precio Justo at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Corralejo at 3 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Mirador de Lobos Golf at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Bahia Azul at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Corralejo & el Cotillo at 3 Kilometres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The breathtakingly beautiful beaches and sand dunes are only a 5 minute drive away. They stretch for miles along the east coast and are a haven not only for all water sport enthusiasts, but also for those who prefer to relax in the sunshine with the cooling sea breeze!

There are some great smaller beaches which are good for children in the resort of Corralejo itself and if you drive for around 15 minutes towards the west coast you find the lovely lagoon beaches of El Cotillo.

Travel:

Direct flights are available to Puerto del Rosario (FUE) from most UK airports. Good prices booking online with Ryanair, Thomas Cook, Easyjet, Monarch, Thomson. The property is approximately 35 mins drive from the airport and a taxi costs around 45€. Not essential, but we do recommend that you hire a car (particularly if you have young children) - it means that you can explore our beautiful island and costs not much more per week than a return taxi transfer from the airport.

Distances:

The nearest large supermarket and restaurant are approx 5 mins walk away, with more bars and restaurants and a taxi rank around 15 mins walk. It is a 5 minute drive/25 minute walk to the Baku Water Park and a 5 minute drive or 35 min walk to the centre of town. A taxi costs around 5€. The roads are extremely good and never crowded - driving around the island is a pretty relaxing experience and well worth the effort!

Further Details:

Casa de Casero is located in a residential complex in the Parque Natural area of the popular town of Corralejo, with its stunning beaches, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, abundant shops and restaurants and great water park. The complex is in a front-line position to the beautiful, protected sand dunes of Corralejo, with unimpeded views of the sea and the islands of Lobos and Lanzarote. It is bordered by protected parkland and also has panoramic mountain views.

There is a large communal pool area with a lagoon style swimming pool and a smaller shallow pool for children. As the complex is residential, it is usually quiet and tranquil - a great place to 'get away from it all', but with the benefit of the lively bars and restaurants of the main resort only a few minutes away.

The famous sand dune beaches are approx 5 mins drive away (5€ in a taxi), the nearest supermarket and restaurant are 5 - 7 mins walk, with more shops & bars and a taxi rank approx. 15 mins walk away.

The information folder in the villa contains useful telephone numbers, including medical & taxis, along with recommendations and directions to supermarkets, places to eat, places to visit, etc.

Corralejo has much to offer in terms of Spanish charm and authenticity. There are plenty of restaurants to try out, including traditional Canarian food, Italian, Chinese, Mexican and English. The harbour area is full of great restaurants, bars, and cafes, from which you can sit and watch the world go by.

The Baku water park is nearby, again only 5 minutes drive away (25 mins walk), along with other attractions in the same vicinity, such as the new las Palmeras shopping centre, twice weekly market and 10 pin bowling alley.

The Campanario commercial centre has local markets, some wonderful restaurants and great live entertainment.
