About Dave van Bakel

Hi, I'm Dave. I have been living on this magical island for the past 10 years and I still love this place. When I'm not working as a freelance captain I enjoy surfing, windsurfing and fishing. Next to that I really enjoy hearing from my guests what a great time they had in the villa and on the island! Hope to see you someday in this special part of the world..

Dave van Bakel purchased this villa in 2006

Why Dave van Bakel chose La Oliva

I got this property because of the vicinity of all the great beaches. The village of Lajares itself is a small lively place with a couple of excellent coffeebars, shops and restaurants. I also like the lack of artificial lighting and thus the starry nights around here.

What makes this villa unique

Cul de sac, no passing traffic or persons.

Great views

Safe for kids, astroturf around the pool

Casa Tommy Living up to its name

  • 5 of 5

The house “Casa Tommy” is located in a nice peaceful village called Lajares. The village is a pleasant 10 to 15 minute drive from Corralejo on the East coast and the same to El Cotillo. The house is right on the edge of the village with beautiful panoramic views and far enough away from any noise the village could make. There is a bar within a 5 minute walk and the village itself is only a 10 minute walk from the house where you will find a well-stocked Supermarket, many bars and Restaurant’s. The village has a small local Market on a Saturday in the town square and just behind that is a nice little play park for younger children. The house is very well maintained and looked after. The BBQ was very well used as was the pool which was a great size. The house is a 30 to 40 minute drive from the airport and Dave, the owner sent some directions which were perfect. Dave, the owner is a very welcoming and friendly guy who can give you lots of tips on what to do and where to go which was very useful. We spent the vast majority of our holiday at the house as we have a son of 3 and a half years. Dave supplied toys for him to play with and we also had a fantastic collection of DVD’s and books to chill out with in the evening over a nice glass of local wine. We would really recommend this villa and will certainly be returning at some point. Please don’t feel afraid to contact Dave he gave us lots of tips even before arriving and his dog “Tommy” was a favourite with my son. THANKYOU so much for helping us a brilliant holiday.

Great base for exploring north of the island

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious and clean with ample outdoor space in which to relax. Dave the owner provided excellent communication both before and during the holiday and was on hand for any problems. The property is an ideal base for exploring the north of the island. We paid extra to hire the hot tub which is well worth it if you go during the cooler months. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

Chill out Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Tommy last week in August. We were a family of 4, our two boys age 18 and 20 loved the really good WiFi, excellent Television with excellent sound. Believe me they tested it! Even the Blue tooth speaker so that we could have our own music inside and out.

We did rent the whole villa, all three bedrooms have fans - essential! It was nice to have our privacy upstairs while the boys enjoyed their own bathroom and bedroom each.

I should say that our flight was very late and we called the owner -Dave, to explain that we would be late. He was more than happy to wait for us. He even thought of supplying us with wine and beer and snacks as we were too late to buy anything - very welcome!

There are also lots of bars and a water park in Correllejo , the beaches beyond the town are great for wave hopping and watching the kite surfers. Fantastic sand dunes.

Back to the Villa, thank you Dave for your hospitality. We would not have any hesitation in recommending your Villa.

Excellent Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Fuerteventura for over 26 years, but this was the first time that we have stayed in Lajares. We were greeted by Dave's parents when we arrived at Casa Tommy. They were both friendly and very helpful. The villa was wonderful, very spacious and clean. It had everything that we needed including Wi-Fi to the great relief of our two teenage daughters. The heated pool was fantastic and a great size.The privacy of the villa was just what we were looking for. The village has some lovely small shops and places to eat. This was a brilliant holiday and we are looking forward to our next visit. Mark and Lowri

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We've been to the Island a few times and this was our 2nd visit this year, It's the first time we've stayed at Casa Tommy though. The villa is amazing, the outside area is big and clean and our 4 year old boy loved the astro turf area to play on. The pool was warm all day (you need a heated pool with a little one) and 7 of us managed to mess around without bumping in to each other. The BBQ and covered seating area is large and comfortable and the hot tub is a great little extra. Inside the Villa is really clean and the layout is great, my parents had the upstairs room and could escape grandparent duty on the sun terrace and the downstairs rooms are large and well fitted. The kitchen area is a little basic but equipped with everything you need (not that we eat in) and another chair in the living room would have been handy but we brought one in from the outside and this was fine. Bathrooms were great and it really felt like a home from home. We found the location perfect, a walk or 2 min drive into Lajares where there are a few nice (cheap) restaurants and some great little shops and coffee spots alongside the supermarket was really helpful. We drove to Corralejo (15 min) most mornings and evenings where there is everything you could wish for, amazing food (La Casita Asador and La Scarpetta da Mario), shops and more. Go to the square at El Campanario for some great shops and eat at Boardriders for a great meal. Head to the The beach by the Hotel Riu Palace Tres Islas it's only 20 mins drive and great if you don't want to stay by the pool. All in all Casa Tommy is perfect so much so that we cancelled our accommodation in December and have booked to come back again. Dave is a great host and I'm sure you'd love your stay.

Lajares is a lively bohemian type village with several shops, restaurants and bars. People mostly like to hike, bike or surf and i rent out all kinds of sports equipment as well. I do boat trips to Lanzarote and Lobos with my guests myself when I'm on the island so feel free to inquire about that.


The north shore beaches are at 5 miles or a 10 minute drive. Cotillo beach is 15 minutes away as are the Corralejo beaches.


The airport is 40 minutes away.


Corralejo and Cotillo are both about 10 minutes away by car.

Further Details:

The village of Lajares is a lively little place with a number of small restaurants, a great French and English bakery and a good supermarket. There are several bars and surfboard hire is available.
