Lovely relaxed holiday

  • 4 of 5

Great location, but nicely sheltered from the business of being in the centre. Very clean apartment, perfectly as described. It's only a five minute walk to the beach. Only 2 minutes from a fantastic restaurant Fado Rock , it's a must, in our case on several occasions! This is an ideal property for a couple, you can sit on the patio and get the sun right up until about 4pm.

We did have a slight issue, as there was a car wash underneath that on occasions thought they were a disco. This has been passed to Cathie and will be sorted I have no doubt at all; I do not believe she was aware that they could be quite so loud.

Supermarket is literally two minutes walk away, or if you don't mind walk a huge one "Atlantica" fantastic prices. The main beach is five minutes walk. However if you walk a further 10 minutes there are several beautiful beaches, again near the Supermarket. Also try the pier there, brilliant food and has great cocktails and a really relaxed feel to it. Would certainly not have an issue returning.

Cosy flat in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Clean and comfortable property to stay for 2-4 people. Maching bedding and towels, comfortable beds. All kitchen tools and dishes as well.

However the property is not exactly where the map shows, but a couple of streets further looking from the beach. Wi-fi in the property costs £25 for a week(also you can connect with cafes and restaurants wi-fi for free) and it was noisy in the mornings during our stay because there is a rental cars garage under the property and the workers have been hoowering and cleaning cars from 7 am in the morning during our stay what used to wake me up.

Owner's Response: Hi Ramune Thank you for your comments, Sorry about the car place but we are constant intouch with the car company to keep the noise down, and they should not be starting at 7am. I will get back on to them to complain again and will also get Shelagh to keep at them. Did you say to Shelagh about this when you were staying , the more we complain at the time the better. Thank's cathie

Excellent Apartment home from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just spent eight fantastic weeks in this apartment. It was home from home with everything you could possibly need, a well equipped kitchen with a large fridge and freezer, toaster,. George Forrman grill perfect for a self catering holiday. There is also a washing machine,iron and ironing board. We had breakfast each morning on the upstairs veranda which is a sun trap and perfect for sunbathing. The apartment is situated right in the centre and is handy for the beach just a few minuites walk away. The manager Mick and the owner Cathie were most helpful and nothing was to much trouble any thing you wanted to know you just had to ask. I would definitely stay in this apartment again thank you Cathie and Mick for all your help Pauline and Bill

Best Apartment We've Stayed In Fuerteventura

  • 4 of 5

We've just returned after a lovely stay here. The apartment has everything you could need and is very well kept. Mick and Dee who manage it are very nice too. Mick can collect and return you to the airport if you require transfers. The apartment is very close to shops and restaurants and about 5 minutes from the beach. Cathie the owner is very helpful too, so when we return to Fuerte we will definitely stay here if it's available.

Brilliant Holiday at Casa Catarina

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fantastic 11 nights at Casa Catarina. The house was spotless and is ideally positioned being close to all the action, bars restaurants etc. but in a good quiet location where you can relax in peace and quiet. Everything was exactly as described on this website and booking was easy, so thanks to Cathie & Paul for allowing us to stay in your little piece of paradise. Also thanks to Shelagh for the background info and tour of the resort on arrival, she was only a phone call away when needed (even though she was unwell at the time) this helped us to hit the ground running on our 1st visit to Fuerteventura. Hope you’re feeling better soon Shelagh.

The guest book in the house also contained loads of good info and advice about the resort.

Booked a car for a couple of days through Ecocar (2 doors down the road on the next corner) good service and reasonably priced.

Local bus service is also very good – only €1.35 to Puerto del Rosario.

We only took 1 excursion – Quads & Buggies through volcanoes, lava fields, sand dunes etc and would definitely recommend this one (booked through Lastminute Excursions in the pedestrian precinct) – slap on the sunscreen though because we both got burned without realising it at the time!

Eating out – we went to Fado Rock as recommended by previous guests – excellent for “melt in the mouth” steaks.

Goose & Firkin in the precinct was excellent for cooked breakfasts and inexpensive evening meals. Italian restaurant across the road was OK.

By far the best in our experience was El Faro (The Lighthouse) down at the marina. Booked a table upstairs on the balcony for the best view in Caleta and an unforgettable last night. Classy but not too expensive.

Brilliant accommodation at Casa Catarina

Fantastic location + apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful 12 days in this apartment. Everything exactly as Cathie describes ( in fact better than descripition ) Very clean and comfortable apartment and what a gem Shelagh is, so helpful and knows the island well so was able to give us some great tips. Resort is also great everything you need right on the doorstep, beach only a few minutes walk away.

Booking this from Cathie was so easy, she was always on hand to answer any questions we had before we travelled, even on New Years day. Thanks Cathie will definately book again

Location

Nearest Airport
10 Kilometres
Puerto Del Rosario
Nearest Beach
300 Metres
Car: not necessary

The apartment is about a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport , car hire is not nessesary as the apartment is in the heart of the resort with shops , bars , restaurants and supermarkets all at hand. The beach is about a 5 min walk from the apartment where you will find lots of watersport activitys , round by the harbour you will be able to book any boat trips that may take your fancy.

The Atlantico shopping centre is about a 15 minute walk away with some nice shops , spar supermarket , cinema , bowling alley, amusements for the kids , also restaurants and bars.

Take a trip to the Las Rotondas shopping centre in Puerto Del Rosario which has 3 floors of shops a must for that designer bargain . Would recomend a trip to the oasis park zoo great day out for all ages , water park in Corralejo.

We are fortunate to have a really excellent golf course in Caleta De Fuste which hosted the spanish open in 2004 , which is only a 5 min car ride away .

Great base to stay to explore the island .
