About Sue Whiteley

I live on the beach at Saunton Sands in N. Devon with my husband. My son, a Financial Consultant lives in the same area and daughter, Sarah, a former British Open Surf Champion, runs Walking on Waves, a surf school on Saunton beach.

Oh! yes, and we must not forget to mention Kiri and Millie, our Labradors who are our family members that get most attention.

Sue Whiteley purchased this villa in 2004

Why Sue Whiteley chose La Oliva

As a family we have always loved the Sea and Beachside properties. The Villa is in one of the best locations anywhere, with a climate fit for holidays 12 months of the year and only a 4 hour flight from the UK. Fuerteventura has some of the best beaches in the world and an informal approach to life. A Canary island 'not yet properly discovered' and long may it remain so.

It is our second home which our family use for up to 10 weeks a year and the rest of the time we share with letting guests.

What makes this villa unique

The front garden gate is direct onto the sand and beach and no more than a 5 minute walk to the centre of Corralejo with countless good Restaurants. But, best of all is the location and it is furnished and equipped as a "home" rather than a holiday let

Owner's Response: Thank you Helen for your very kind words. Las Olas is our second home and we spend around 6 weeks a year there. We try to set it up as a "home" and not a routine holiday let. I am so glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope, one day, that you may return. Around 70% of our guests now are returners. Kind regards Sue

Nearest Airport : Puerto del Rosario at 35 kilometres.

Nearest Ferry : Corralejo at 1 kilometre.


The Villa is situated directly on Galera Beach in Corralejo within 10 mins walk of most of Corralejo's abundant bars and restaurants including those in the Old Town.

Further Details:

Wind surfing, swimming, diving, surfing, snorkeling, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, kite boarding and the Dunes Nature Reserve are all very close by. Also a water park for the children (summer only). Slightly further there are many attractions for visitors including a zoo on the south of Fuerteventura and the Timanfaya volcano and lava fields on Lanzarote where you can also visit the outstanding architectural creations of Cesar Manrique. The scenery is spectacular and the beaches best in the Canaries. The world wind surfing championships are held in the south of Fuerteventura in the Autumn. To explore the whole island a hire car is a good idea; you can enjoy the villa without.
