About Dr Iain Cameron

Hi. My name is Iain Cameron. I love Fuerteventura and Golf. My golf handicap is 6 and whenever I can I like to chill in Fuerteventura doing not much off anything.

I have been renting property on the island for 14 years and pride myself on providing a factual, prompt, reliable rental business and believe that my properties pound-for-pound are the best value for money properties on the owners direct site. Iain Cameron.

Dr Iain Cameron purchased this villa in 2004

Why Dr Iain Cameron chose Antigua

Location. Location. Location and Value for Money.

This property is in a great location close to everything you need. Car hire is not essential. That is, we are not stuck way out of town pretending to be in the town.

The property is fantastic value for money having a great USP of amazing views and lots of inside and outside space. This is coupled with great Wifi and real proper British TV (BBC, ITV etc). This coupled with modern furnishings, make this a great holiday choice. The many reviews prove this to be the case going back over a long number of years.

There is no better value. You will find cheaper villas for sure. But they will disappoint for sure. This Villa is never disappointing. It blows away Golf course villas for sure.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for use of your villa. Far bigger than the pictures seem to show. We loved the four terraces and the sea views. We have a four and two year old boy and girl and they were able to run around freely and safely in the completely secure and private terraces. My 4-year old just loves your pool slide. He nearly wore it out. It is wonderful feature. Can I also just congratulate you on the pool water quality. It was crystal clear. (I understand from Diego that this because you have a high teach purification system that does not use chlorine making it skin & hair friendly). The pool safety fence is great for adult's peace of mind. Really enjoyed it. Nice big Kitchen made a real difference. It's a joy to have a kitchen that you can actually eat it. We loved the outdoor lounge pergola areas. Sitting there at night watching the pool lights was just fabulous. Thanks, Liz and Cliff Shearer, May 2012.

Amazing Villa - totally delivers - top place.

  • 5 of 5

This is the best villa we have booked. it exceeded our imagination. it totally delivers. it has got space, peace, great location, v.private with an amazing big suerr clean pool with flume which we all loved. the playground for the children is excellant and the pro table football and dart board where great for dad. a lot of villas dont work for all family members but i have to say this one works across all generations. it is much bigger than comes across in the photos and i think this is probably one of the plus points as family members get a chance to breath so to speak. i must thank ian cameron who is the most polite and understanding owner we have dealt with and thanks to sue who dealt with us on island as she was a big help to. would luv to come back xxxx.

Great villa and location, nice family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Villa Fin. We came with four adults a 3yr old and baby. Great place for family and well located. The temporary gate around the pool was great for peace of mind and all the toys kept our son entertained. Any small issues that came up were quickly resolved by the property manager. Would recommend for a relaxing holiday.

Best Villa by far

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is better than we expected, when we arrive at the Villa The lovely woman Sue shows us the Villa. She tells you everything about the Villa and about the location, where the shops are everything. She is so kind. The nearest supermarket is about 7 min walk easy to do. The Villa is VERY VERY Child friendly, there is a fence by the pool. There is a lovely play ground for the kids, everything is child friendly. We have 2 children one is 3 years old one is 1 year old, they had the best vacation ever. A lot off place where you can relax, or eat. The bedrooms are great, there is a lot of space. The bathrooms are also very big and nice and clean, thy have a hairdryer. It is really a great beautiful Villa, The Owner Lian and Sue will help you to have to best vacation ever really believe me. We would love to come back. Great Villa. Book it. You will love it.

Very good and recommended

  • 5 of 5

We loved this VILLA FIN. We were met on arrival by Sue who gave us a really helpful induction. The location is great and well placed for shops and walking easily to everything you need. The main feature of this villa is its outdoor spaces which our kids just loved and they played all day and all night. The pool is great and the slide worse them out. The playground was well used also and my son and husband played the table football all of the time and my daughter was just at a nursery really with all of the toys and wend house ! We found to very private and had everything. Lots of space and really private. We would love to come back. Great Villa. Book it. You will love it.

Xmas/New Year Stay

  • 5 of 5

First Xmas and New Year abroad and can't recommend this villa enough, a real home from home. Private, relaxing and a lovely walk to the main town. Lovely views and a real sense of comfort. Whatever the time of year I would definitely stay here and just sit, relax and soak up the sun ☀️ No car hire necessary and close to shops, restaurants etc. Stayed with husband and 2 teenage children. Perfect, 10/10 *****

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Fuerteventura at 3 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 200 Metres Nearest Restaurant : at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Calete beach at 1 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Location, Space, Security, Privacy:

The location of this house is one of its Unique Selling Points. This is a rare villa property location. It is not on the golf course. It is one of only a handful of villa with private pool properties available that are in Calete Town. This means that car hire is not necessary.

This can save you several hundred euros. It is only a four minute walk to get your morning paper & rolls from Hippo Dino Supermarket. The house is only 12 euros in a taxi from the airport (10 min drive). There is great Pizza Parlour and Tapas Bar / Cafe just 200 meters away from the house. This in my view is the best located Villa in Calete available for rent. It is also one of the most private you will ever find.

It is also one of the largest in terms of both plot size, pool size, and floor area. It is 30% larger across all dimensions than most competing villas. It is impossible for outsiders to see in. It is also totally secure for children with high walls and secure gates.

Distances:

The house is adjacent to the Castillo beach club. The house is a 5 minute walk from the Montecastillo centre (where you will find restaurants and bars), and then only a further 10 minute walk to the heart of town. A good location in Calete de Fust Town.

Swimming Pool.

This is a large 10 x 4 metre pool with a kid safe shallow end and pool lighting for nights. It has a fantastic water slide for hours of fun. There is a removable child safety fence to give you peace of mind for young children that cannot swim.

There is pool heating in winter (local charge applies) which will maintain the water at 27 degrees, some 7 degrees above ambient air temperature. There is a solar blanket for use all year round to maintain pool temperature when not is use. There is a black solar pool side shower to give luke warm water to avoid those nasty freezing shower surprises.

The pool water quality is maintained by a high tech water treatment facility that does not use chemicals (no chlorine tablets). As a chemical free pool, the water is crystal clear – never cloudy. Also, this system is skin and hair friendly for children – so no more red skin, sore eyes, or green hair! If you have children that will spend lots of time in the pool, you need to avoid over chlorinated pools, a very common problem in private rental pools, so this is the pool of choice for you.

Kids Games and play area.

Your kids will love this area. And, if they are happy, you will get peace, and will also be happy. This is the most kid friendly Villa in Town. There is a large kid’s play area that is sheltered from the sun. It has a ‘grass’ (soft) base. You will find a range of things here – football table, basket ball hoop, golf putting, some toys, Play Hut (Wendy House), Sand Pit. It is completely safe, shaded, and secure with high walls and a locked gate.

Air conditioning !!!

This is not necessary. Fuerteventura is not Turkey or Cyprus. There are two fans if you need these. Also, the master bed, bed 3, all have shutters that allow air to pass through the room. This means that you can open the normal patio doors completely, lock the shutter doors, but open the slats on the shutters, and you will get a cool stream of air flowing through the room.

Alfresco Eating and Outside seating.

There is a dinning table with seating for 6 & a kitchen table with seating for 4. There is an outside table with seating for 6. There is a large feature BBQ. There are tow outside lounges with comfortable lounge furniture. These are high ambiance spots and you will spend a lot of time in these lounges. One such lounge naturally overlooks the pool / pool lights. There are 25 perimeter mood lights around the pool area which creates a lovely evening soft mood.

Coast / Beach:

The golden sandy beach is located within walking distance, or by the kids 'noddy' train, and it is very safe for swimming making it ideal for all the family.
