About the Owner
About Chiara Santevecchi
We are a young couple who fell in love with the island of Fuerteventura. You are welcome to come and spend time in our holiday home, but please treat it as you would with your own home. We live in the UK but like travelling whenever possible.
Chiara Santevecchi purchased this apartment in 2014
Why Chiara Santevecchi chose Fuerteventura
We bought the property in Autumn 2014 and renovated completely with new decoration and furniture. We chose Costa De Antigua because it is so near to the airport that it takes very little to get to. The place is relaxing, with all the necessary amenities and far away from the too tourist area in Corralejo where there is movida and foreign crowds. You can enjoy a relaxing holiday, experience the real life of the island but with a sense of feeling at home because several British citizens live in the area. Costa de Antigua is in the middle of the island, meaning that you can escape for daily trip without having to drive extended hours.
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment is in a nice complex with security gates and CCTV cameras. It offers 2 nice swimming pools and all neighbours are very friendly and available for a chat.

#10 Caleta Paraiso Costa Antigua
Did what it says on the tin.A 1 bedroom apartment that was clean and easy to keep clean.A couple of minutes walk to two bus stops,1 a free one to Atlantic shopping centre and the other which takes you to Puerto del Rosario or Caleta in the other direction. Only one minor hitch and Chiara sorted tthat within a couple of hours .Apartment can look a litter cluttered but with so many appliances that's hardly surprising.There's an iron and board, television,WiFi router ( very strong signal) microwave,fridge washing machine,toaster and a kettle.There are extensive coastal walks but taxis are very cheap if f you prefer..There are plenty of bars and restaurants.We can recommend the Caracoletes beach front restaurant at Las Salinas . Exceptional value can be had at the cafe in Spar supermarket at Atlanticio centre.at lunchtime.to make for a more enjoyable stay maybe a small air con unit and a small portable table ( fold-up) to use n the terrace. All in all a great value for money apartment in a good location
everything we needed
This apartment is situated away from Caleta de Fuste which was what we wanted, we enjoyed the walk in for lunch every day and of an evening ate in the local restaurants which were only a five minute walk away. Although it says it sleeps 4 people I would say children would be ok on the pull out sofa but not adults. We only used the apartment to sleep in and it was fine, there is a toaster and facilities for self catering but its cheap to eat out so we didn't bother. It was nice to have the use of the washing machine so we didn't bring lots of dirty clothes home! A tip if your'e getting a taxi from the airport, its only 10 minutes but our driver hadn't heard of it and was getting a bit irate, if you tell them it's opposite Stoners bar that may help. The staff in Benny's bar were lovely and helped us find the place. As a lot of ex pats live on the complex its a nice little community and there are two pools which we practically had to ourselves. All in all if you want a bit of winter sun in a quiet (ish) place it does the job. If you go into Caleta de Fuste we ate in Pieros music cafe at lunchtime, its where the shopping centre is, very nice food and friendly staff. Locally we ate in the two restaurants by Benny's bar one is Chinese and the other is called nouveau kwizeen (I know its spelt weird) we had our evening meals in both and couldn't fault them. Chiara the property owner was really good at answering any queries and answered my emails promptly. If we were to visit Fuerteventura again I would use these apartments again. Ooh and one last point, if you walk along the seafront to Caleta there are little chipmunks living in the rocks if you sit on one of the stone benches they will come out to be fed and they love almonds!! Very cute.
A friend who stayed in this apartment recommended us to go and visit. We found such a nice atmosphere, we like the complex, people are friendly and we felt safe, the apartment is small and equipped with all you need, including a washing machine.
As for the location, we were not sure if Costa de Antigua was right for us, but the apartment was at a good price and we wanted to try. We must admit that it was much better than being in the crowds of Caleta. Costa de Antigua has all the basic amenities that you need and a stroll along the coast (magnifique by the way) takes you to Caleta in less than half an hour. As a couple in our late 50s that's all we needed. The owners were nice and available for everything, they even sent us a guide to Fuerteventura. We are looking forward to go back!
Not so cheap or cheerful
We arrived at about 11.15am, which the owner said would be OK as it was vacated the day before. The apartment seemed quite smelly but It hadn't been cleaned, so we dumped our bags and went away for a while.
When we returned it still smelled mustydamp, despite an air freshener. I had changed and put my trousers in the wardrobe, they were quickly removed when we got back due to the musty smell there. For the remainder of the holiday we kept our clothes on top of the sideboard in the bedroom.
There was also an awful smell under the sink, where the dinner plates were kept.
We had a problem with the toilet seat, but fair play, this was soon sorted.
The sofabed was not comfortable to sit on for any length of time. Despite another reviewers comment, I found the bed to be very uncomfortable.
The apartment is on the ground floor located about 20 yards from the security gate that everyone uses, so most residents walk by – there is no privacy. Even when we were sitting inside with the patio doors open, people would often say hello when passing.
It could be quite noisy at night as some of the residents didn't seem to realise that their talking, when passing, was quite loud.
Due to the location of the apartment, the patio area gets no sun and the prevailing wind comes straight across it as there is nothing to stop it.
Previous reviews have said “well maintained apartment”, “very quiet on a night time”, “Comfortable apartment”, “Nicely decorated, well-kept and everything is impeccable”, and the description says renovated in November 2014.
All I can say is that it has deteriorated a lot in 20 months, and it is lot more cluttered than the photos suggest -and darker. Inside was clean but patio and chairs had not been cleaned, and dinner table dirty.
The price does not include the final clean nor sheets and towels, which I feel is misleading (who takes sheets and towels on holiday when luggage is so expensive?). Yes, it is on the details if you search, but it should be included, and in fact made the cost of this apartment dearer than others we were looking at.
We only chose this apartment as the Costa Tropical round the corner, where we usually stay, was fully booked. We actually went to the hotel the day we arrived to see if they had any rooms (sadly they hadn't) - I would gladly have lost the money on the apartment to have moved.
It depends what you like but this apartment was not suitable for us, I couldn't recommend it and wouldn't ever go back.
Back to fuetaventura
Ideal one bedroomed clean and well maintained apartment, situated just right for what we like, a quiet area with a pleasant walk down to the beach. It has a lovely pool area with card access key access to the complex, very quiet on a night time, enough bars and eateries without walking too far. Have been to this area many times, will go back to this again.
A great little place for a few days recharge of the batteries - I really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to be just a little bit off the beaten track. Comfortable apartment in a relatively quiet area and great for walking - I walked into Caleta de Fuste and indeed past there and further down the coast every day.
