More activities available on the island: A Thalasso spa is located next to the beach access closest to the apartment, next to the tennis courts.
As well as the activities close to the apartment already mentioned, the following activities are also catered for on the island: deep sea fishing, jeep safari, kite surfing, wind surfing, surfing, horse riding, mountain biking. An annual kite festival draws crowds to Corralejo every November, and the Caleta Festival of Music parties throughout the evenings in October.
Should we hire a car?: The complex has underground parking available should you wish to rent a car in order to explore the rest of the island. Many car hire offices are found locally as well as at the airport, with prices starting at about 22euros per day for a small model. The island has many and varied beaches and places of interest to visit, from the rocky surfers' paradise near Corralejo in the North to the beautiful and expansive dunes of Jandia in the South. The unspoilt former capital Betancuria is a beautiful destination for a quiet romantic day in the cooler climate of the central region. A regular ferry sails from Corralejo to Lanzarote every day.
Late bookings: If you book to stay with us less than one calendar month before travelling, then a discount of 10% of the advertised rate will be applied.
We first went to Caleta on holiday in the mid-90s, and fell in love with it then, in it's vastly undeveloped state. Since then, we have watched in amazement as the region has improved and expanded, and just fell in love with our property as soon as we saw it. We still love staying there ourselves, and really like it when we know it can be a 'home from home' to families and couples alike.
Built in 2007 and receiving holiday guests since 2008, we are building up a steady base of returners. Having a toddler when we bought the property meant that we made sure it was safe, and that there were small but necessary comforts, like a baby bath and travel cot, socket guards and a stairgate.
Ours is the only property on the complex that has a large sunny patio area with a lockable gate, to keep your little ones secure. Although in the centre of Caleta, we are constantly surprised by the quietness of the location at night. It is so near to the local shops, playgrounds, beach and bars that everyone can either be kept busy during the days or chill out around the house, watching a dvd, playing on the playstation, or reading one of the rapidly expanding library of books that other guests have left!
