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.

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to update the photographs of our improvments as we have just spent Eu5500 on a new conservatory and the photographs are out of date with this improvement.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.

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.
