Having not been on this sort of holiday before we didn't really know what to expect but we were really pleased with what we found. The villa was spacious (loads of storage space), well kept and cool!
As other reviewers have said the neighbours, Paula and John, were very helpful. We arrived much later than we expected thanks to a prolonged wait at the car hire - and they very generously came and rescued us when we couldn't find the villa in the dark! They gave us some great tips for places to go. They were helpful but not at all intrusive.
Lovely pool - bigger than the photos suggest. The poolman came every week to clean. He came early-ish in the morning so as not to infringe on pooltime!
With the exception of one night the the villa was very peaceful and quiet. We didn't need the aircon as we were happy to sleep with open windows. I know other reviewers have mentioned mosquitos so we went armed with bug spray but we didn't have a problem with mosquitos during late July/early August.
The water supply at the villa takes some getting used to. When you turn the tap on you get a good flow of water for a couple of seconds which then stops! Leave the tap on a short while and water flow is then normal. Once you know what's happening it is fine just a little confusing at first.
I would say a car is essential if you stay at this villa. You could manage with taxis but a car gives you more freedom.
In short, a lovely place to stay with helpful owner before arrival and helpful neighbours once there. Enjoy
So not quite as photographed - families with young children beware, the pool has no fence and is open to the patio, not great if you have young children.
This could e a great house but it needs a little love.
It is remote, a car is essential, but the best beaches on the island are only 40 mins away. You get a real sense of the Canaries here, few people speak English, the food is honest & great value, but choose carefully, if it says cheese on the menu, that's what you get, frills no spills!
For us it was great and I would go back without question, but we are seasoned travelers to Fuerteventura and I like to be away from other tourists.
