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

Lovely Bungalow and excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property this year and it has everything you could need for two people. It is clean and well maintained and the conservatory is brilliant for sitting in when the weather sometimes drops a bit cooler at night. Jimmy was friendly and professional in all our dealings with him and everything was as described.

The Montecastillo centre is about a 15min stroll away with the main centre and beach a further 10 to 15 mins. Taxi back from main town for only 3 euros.

Would recommend to friends and would / will go back in future.

Relaxing and tranquil property

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in the apartment. Since our last visit there were some changes. These were changes for the better and made the apartment more comfortable. We have already booked a 2 week stay to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in May 2018. The weather for October was amazing it was full sunshine all week. Yhe owners Veronica and Jimmy are great with communication from start to end. The caretaker and his wife are great too and very helpful. Recommeded to everyone 100% chill factor with everthing included that you woild have at home.

Five Star....Modern and homely.......Double bed

  • 5 of 5

The property is great and well worth the weekly rent. It is situated in a lovely quiet spot at the top of the island. Taxi is less than 4 euros from the spar supermarket in the shopping mall near Mcdonalds. It has everything that you would have at home. eg washer, cooking utensils,oven and a conservatory. The owners are wonderful and always keep you informed from start to finish. We have booked again for Oct 17. Weather was amazing for all 7 days. Sharon & Craig

holiday

  • 4 of 5

This is our 4th. Time to stay in this bungalow. Location and the overall tranquillity in this area is exceptional. The new extension that the owners have added makes evening time so relaxing. It's like having all the home comforts while being on holiday. We've already booked our next visit.

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.
