Guestbook comments from the owner

A gem of a holiday home. Spacious, comfortable and with all the facilities we could want. Loved the swimming pool – warm, inviting, just perfect for an end of day swim.

This was our first stay in Lajares and we enjoyed the location – just a few minutes from the Lagoons at El Cotillo but also Corralejo. A short stroll into the village for an evening meal. This holiday home would merit discerning Fuerte lovers.

Had a wonderful holiday, the villa is beautiful. The swimming pool was great, overall a very relaxing holiday, quiet and peaceful will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Many thanks for a warm welcome to such a comfortable and well appointed apartment. The heated pool and the quiet location were the deciding factors in our choice of venue. We now know we made the right decisions and would not hesitate to recommend this to like minded couples.

Had a wonderful holiday. Apartment & pool was lovely and so nice to have it all to ourselves. We will be returning soon.

Easy going lazy holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from 14 nights in this beautiful apt, so called as it is attached to the owners property , but has the feel of staying in your own private villa with wonderful pool and gardens. The owners Martin and Sue are lovely friendly hosts, on hand if needed but always leaving you to your privacy . The apt is beautifully clean with everything you could require. Would definitely recommend

Just What We Were Looking For!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the apartment which was very well equipped with everything we needed for our stay and pool was wonderful and so well maintained - we certainly made use of it daily. We collected pre-booked hire car from airport and explored surrounding region as much as was possible in a week. Loved lagoons at El Cotillo, walked up several volcanoes and the walk along gorgeous valley to the tiny chapel, Vega de Rio Palma was very special. Pizzas at Rojo Tomate in village excellent. Temperature just right for us. A big thank you to Martin and Sue for making us welcome and providing all that was necessary to make the holiday go so smoothly. Shame it was only for a week!

Nice, quiet, very clean and ideal location but a car required.

  • 4 of 5

Whilst the property is advertised as three bedrooms we only had one bedroom made available to us. The property is also attached to the owners house, however they are very respectful and we had the privacy of the pool to ourselves. The view of the small mountains nearby was quite breathtaking sitting on the patio. Overall we would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Sorry, some misunderstanding, the property is only advertised on owners direct as one bedroom. There is only one bedroom. I do not know where the idea of 3 bedrooms came from. Also the property is advertised as an apartment it is therefore by definition attached to some other property be it a house or another apartment.

Clean , comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is conveniently located in Lajares which is halfway between Correjco and El Cotillo. A car is a necessity rather than a luxury as Lajares itself has basic shops and restaurants. If you wish to explore the Island further either to climb vocanos or find some stunning beaches you are perfectly situated here .

The apartment is very clean and has everything you could wish for to make it feel a home from home. The pool is very warm and the hosts Martin and Sue are very helpful and pleasant.

The apartment really is a little gem. We really enjoyed our stay here and would return in a flash.

great little find

  • 5 of 5

A brilliant place to spend a quiet couple of weeks....the owner's were away whilst we were there but made sure we had contact numbers in case of any issues....Only a gentle stroll into the centre of Lajares and a 10-15 minute drive into Correlejo..... The apartment is a good size for two people and had most everything you could require. The tv selection is very limited with regards to british channels, but I had my Kindle so it wasn't a problem. I was in the pool almost every day despite it being January...a little cool to start but fine once in. I can definitely recommend this apartment for anyone not wanting to be on a complex but still relatively close to amenities. We look forward to returning in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were not happy with the available tv channels. There are hundreds of English language channels with a few British channels but no BBC or ITV, although the quality of many channels leave a little to be desired. The Spanish channels transmit most of their films in English. I am sorry we were not there as we could have helped in locating these channels.. For the future wee are looking into getting Internet TV. On another point we are currently waiting delivery of an electric pool heater to supplement the solar heating in the cooler months.

Special interest holidays:

The area is ideally located for many activities i.e surfing, wind/kite surfing, fishing, diving, cycling/mountain biking, walking and running. Horse riding, motor cross and quad tours are also available.


Lajares is a multicultural village set in the north of the island of Fuerteventura, midway between its main tourist resort of Corralejo, the quite Spanish village of Cotillo and the very small village of Majanicho. All three locations have superb golden sandy beaches and are just 10 minutes away (approximately 5 miles). Due to Fuerteventura's closeness to Lanzarote, it is possible to visit the other island by taking a 15 minute ferry ride which runs every hour from Corralejo.


Due to the location of the apartment, a car is highly recommended and can be pre-booked in the UK or we can arrange car hire for you. Cars can be collected at the airport, Corralejo or delivered to the apartment. Car hire rates are from approximately £160/£180 for 2 weeks. There is a regular bus service between Corralejo, the capital Puerto del Rosario and El Cotillo. Taxis are easily available. The airport is approximately 30km away taking around 40 mins.


Within the village the bus stop is 700m away with the supermarket 1100m away, other shops, bars and restaurants are in between these.

Further Details:

The following is a list of facilities in the village which may be of interest - a cash point, 6 bars serving food and drinks, restaurant with a small hotel, supermarket which sells meat and fish, paper shop which sells some English newspapers, chemist who is English speaking, pizzeria, goat's cheese maker, a community centre where village festivities can be watched at certain times of the year and where a small Saturday morning vegetable market is held which sells local produce. A church which sometimes has some colorful processions and outdoor services, 2 furniture and home decoration shops, an estate agent, fitness centre, flood lit football stadium where local games can be watched, visitor/craft centre where you can see lace being made.

3 surf /windsurf shops/hire centres, production windsurf board developer/repairer, surf board manufacturer/repairer who also arrange lessons, sail repairer
