About Marie McDonald

My name is Marie. I live in Ireland but I spend a lot of time in Fuerteventura..an island I fell in love with the first time I came here on holiday in the 1990's. I am an artist and the spectacular scenery & colours of Fuerteventura really inspire me every time I come here!

Marie McDonald purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Marie McDonald chose La Oliva

We bought our Bungalow in Corralejo in 2006. It was just perfect! The large swimming pool was the main attraction. We share this with 15 other Bungalows but it is never crowded! The location is very peaceful and only 3 minutes walk to some wonderful sandy beaches. A few minutes more will bring you to the wonderful Corralejo Dunes Parque Nacional with its long stretch of amazing beaches and beautiful sand dunes (which are forever changing shape when it is windy)

What makes this bungalow unique

Our Bungalow is just approximately 10 minutes walk into the town of Corralejo (either walk along the coastal beaches or through the pretty Spanish streets) We are also situated on the main local Bus route which passes our door every half hour to & from the Capital Town of Puerto Rosario and also stops at the Dunes beaches)

We have a large, lively Shopping Centre (El Campanario) about 3 minutes walk away..shops, restaurants, boutiques, hairdressers etc. all open until 10pm. Lots of good music here at weekends and a local craft/food market every Sunday morning. Everything you could want for your holiday!

Travel:

Fuerteventura airport is approx 30 minutes drive from our Bungalow. (I can arrange private airport transfers if needed) Corralejo has a Port with sailings to Lanzarote every hour (15 mins crossing) Other Canary Islands are accessed from the Capital Puerto Rosario's Port.

Car hire is not essential as everything is within easy reach. However I would recommend hiring a car if you wish to explore this beautiful island. Local buses are excellent and highly recommended.

Distances:

The town of Corralejo is a lovely 10 minute walk along the coast or through the pretty side streets where you will find numerous restaurants of every International cuisine...It is well worth visiting the old harbour area with all its wonderful restaurants of every description with amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. El Cotillo is wonderful for a day out..visit the old Lighthouse with the Maritime museum, swim in the clear turquoise water and eat in the amazing local restaurants.

Lovely open area around a fountain to while away the hours with restaurants & shops all around you. Every Sunday morning there is a local crafts/produce market here..well worth a visit. One of our favourite restaurants is in this Centre..Boardriders..wonderful fresh food cooked to your liking..their Sangria is the best! Great music at weekends. Corralejo has some wonderful restaurants both on the Main Street and all around the wonderful promenade & harbour.

In the Harbour you can hire boats or go on trips around the Islands, go fishing, snorkeling, Surfing (plenty of Surf schools locally) Quad bikes / Cycles for hire.

Lovely bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a great holiday in Marie's lovely bungalow. It had everything you needed for a self catering holiday. An added bonus was the sunbeds directly outside the terrace which got the sun all day. Marie organised our transfers for us with Lisa who gave us lots of information about the resort and places around about the bungalow. The Campanario Centre is about a 5 minute walk away, and at the weekend there is a fantastic craft market and a band playing Spanish music which makes a great atmosphere. My friend and I use Owners Direct for our holidays as we like to have our own bedroom, and booking a holiday this way is much cheaper than a hotel. Marie was such a pleasure to deal with which made booking the holiday such a simple and easy process and we would highly recommend this lovely bungalow to anyone looking for a relaxing stay not too far away from the centre of Corralejo, in spotless accommodation with everything supplied for a self catering holiday.

Lovely bungalow. Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holiday in this bungalow. It was an amazingly quiet and relaxing place to stay. The supermarket just up the road had pretty much everything we needed and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance as well. It was really nice to meet the owner Marie who happened to be staying in the bungalow next door and she was really helpful with advice about local places to go etc. There is no real need to hire a car as taxis and buses are pretty cheap, but we found that the cost of a hire car from the airport didn't work out to be much more than the cost of transfers and it gave us the freedom to drive around some of the island as well. Corralejo is a place we would love to visit again and I would definitely choose to stay in the same place if it was available.

Great location, excellent house

  • 5 of 5

We were here for 2 weeks in August 2016. The most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The pool is perfect, not too busy. Our two boys 13 & 10 loved it. Having your own sunbeds makes sunbathing a joy and not a hassle. A nice walk into town with loads of restaurants to choose from. Big, well stocked supermarket is 5 mins walk and Flag Beach is also within walking distance. Cycle lanes all the way into town as well. Casa Maria has everything you need to enjoy you holiday. It's clean and well maintained. Kelly, the housekeeper, was really helpful, friendly and quick to respond to our requests. We are definitely booking again for next year.

A fantastic property at a fantastic price.

  • 5 of 5

I was very worried about the booking as I have never done this before, but Marie (the owner) was fantastic and put my mind at ease. She arranged pick ups for us and gave us loads of details about the island for when we arrived. She was really amazing and nothing was to much trouble if we needed anything (which we didn't as everything was there) The property was fantastic, it has everything you could possibly want. The pool was amazing and so quiet yet the restaurants and beach's are all in walking distance. We found a little gem in this property and will definitely try and book again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am delighted you & the family enjoyed your stay with us in Casa Maria. It is great to get positive feedback like yours, because I know you were a bit nervous booking independently! Hopefully we will see you all again soon! Thank you...Marie

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday. Loads to do and see. Bungalow has everything you need and is just far enough away from town. The pool was lovely and it's a very friendly place to stay. Cycling around town and to the lovely sandy beach and sand dunes was excellent. We all really enjoyed the trip on the catamaran which included a snorkel, paddle board and generally swim with the fishes. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Marie.
