About James & Veronica Phibbs

We are a married couple in our early 50's from Dublin Ireland, with 2 children, age 28, and 25. We fell in love with Fuerteventura in 2006 after a brief family holiday on our return to Ireland we decided to purchase our own piece of paradise. With the good weather almost all year round it makes it easy to enjoy and relax. The first thing we did was to totally renovate and modernise the property for our comfort. Our main bed room has a comfortable double bed with access doors from the bedroom to the Large patio area.

James & Veronica Phibbs purchased this bungalow in 2007

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Well the photos need updating.

No privacy due to lack of curtains or blinds.

WORST OF ALL NEXT DOOR

BAR workers long time renters keeping hours that are not in keeping with a relaxed holiday (chill my eye) . Bedding clean but mattress filthy.

Booked for 7week stay got a flight home after 3 weeks.

Owner's Response: First off let me say we are really sorry you had a bad experience as we rent in good faith and up until now , we have had only good reviews, but I thank you for your feedback and I will endeavor to look into your points. I except we need to update the photographs of our improvments as we have just spent Eu5500 on a new conservatory and the photographs are out of date with this improvement. Our last five guest were very satisfied with this work and their reviews on this web site reflect this, but I will update the photographs soon thank you. As for no privacy our bed room has full length black curtain’s and doors with blacked out glass that makes it impossible to see from outside and then the conservatory has full length glass that is blacked out from the outside also. Our back garden is fronted by a 2.5 meter wall and this makes viewing from outside difficult to impossible. As for people that may or not being staying next door, I will review this with the management team and Management Company if they upset your comfort, may I make an apology. Thank you for pointing out the bedding was clean as our Management Team make a great effort to keep our place in good condition for our guest, if as pointed out the mattress is worse for wear, we will immediately have it replaced. As for booking 7 weeks and staying only 3 weeks this is your personal choice, but my previous guest will testify to my ability to communicate and at no point until now have I received a written formal bad review. I am always as are my agents available by phone or email to discuss any issues you might be experiencing.  Thank again you for taken the time to review our bungalow and we will look into any open points from this review.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to quickly express the ease that i booked this Bungalow, The owners were very helpful at every stage of the booking and even allowed me to enter a little early due to flights.

Firstly the property boasts every thing you could need to enjoy your stay indoor or out. It really is home from home and when you think that you have left something at home i strongly suggest you have a look around because there will probably be one ( hence and old charger for my ipod:) . The property was well maintained and very clean with a great shower, always a bonus. The gardens were a lovely surprise due to the planting and the condition they were maintained.

The location is a little up the hill with a short walk to Caleta, personally i would say only 15mins maximum. On your way down to Caleta there are supermarkets and plenty of eateries and of course a few watering holes to break the walk if needed.

I will certainly be booking this place due to the above and probably more so the fact that i felt that i was respected as a guest and not a number.

Thanks again and hopefully see you again this year.

Peacefull location, excellent value apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great relaxing week at Casa Tir Na Nog in November. Weather was not the best for a couple of days but that did not detract from this excellent apartment which has all the facilities you could need.

It also benefits from a quiet location albeit up a fairly long and steep hill although taxis are readily available and very reasonably priced if you find the walk just too much to face. The walk down to the centre of Caleta De Fuste takes about 20 minutes or so and is great for honing your appetite in anticipation of enjoying a good meal and a drink in one of the many excellent restaurants.

Jimmy’s directions to the apartment were absolutely spot on and it was always easy to find a parking space close by. The apartment was very well prepared for our arrival and the recently added conservatory really came into its own on the one day when it rained quite a bit. It was great for just relaxing with a good book (and a glass of something refreshing!) whilst being warm and comfortable but out of the rain. The entire complex was obviously well maintained and offered an excellent pool area which was almost deserted most of the day.

Jimmy was extremely helpful in helping to resolve a problem which arose after we had left the island only to find when we arrived back in Scotland that I had lost my house keys. The keys were eventually traced and Jimmy immediately arranged for them to be returned to me – many thanks for that Jimmy!!

Will most certainly return to Fuerteventura in the future and would certainly consider staying again at this apartment and will also recommend it to anyone I know who is considering traveling to the island for a well-earned break.

Gorgeous Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Dubious about booking on the site at first but the owners were amazing with their communication from start to end. The apartment was absolutely wonderful and the weather was great too. The apartment had everything you needed with the added bonus of a double bed. The other thing that I loved was having your own comfortable sun lounger on your own patio. We went to the private pool a couple of times and no one was there apart from my husband and me. I have written to the owners again to book for next year already. Totally recommended *****.

Great property, relaxing location, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in many properties dotted around Caleta, this rental was by far our favourite and offered great value for money. The apartment is located halfway up Chipmunk Mountain, so there is a lovely sea view as you relax on the patio. Its a small complex which is home to other renters and some Spanish residents. The pool is 2 minutes walk away and we had the whole pool to ourselves on many occasions, although we did stay after the school holidays had finished.

The main town is a pleasant 20 minute walk down the hill, which allows you to top up your tan and passes right by the Tuesday and Saturday market. We enjoy walking so a car wasn't essential during our stay, but a taxi back is less than 4 euros if you are laden with shopping bags.

We found the apartment to be very clean and comfortable, with all the amenities that you need, including washing machine, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, good collection of DVD's and even a pair of binoculars to look over the golf course. A conservatory was just installed before we arrived and this has really made the apartment feel spacious.

All in all we had a great stay and really felt like we were at home. Jimmy (the owner) provides great communication and his property manager Paul lives on the complex if you need any assistance.

We definitely recommend this apartment and will be looking to stay again in the future.

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Never used privately owned rentals before, but Jimmy made the process simple and straightforward!

Lovely apartment, clean and cosy, very peaceful location, quiet pool area. All the facilities you would have at home, with added bonus of wonderful weather.

Approx 20 minutes walk to centre of Caleta Dr Fuste, great restaurants and bars; particularly Kobe Steakhouse and Chinese restaurant in town opposite Caleta Gardens.

Will definitely be booking again, and highly recommend!!

Perfect for a relaxing couples break

Many thanks Jimmy and Veronica
