Our place is the best place you can stay in Fuerteventura, just above the best beach on the whole island with breath-taking views. It's literally a 10-minute-walk away from the Rene Egli Windsurfing and Kiteboarding Centre! Very close to restaurants and amenities in Costa Calma, Jandia and Morro Jable. Our flat is new, nice and cosy. All newly refurbished and kept it simple and tidy. It is ideal for couples, groups of friends and who wants to experience the island at 100%!
Location and simplicity are everything for us. Costa Calma is a relatively small centre between the two majors towns of Fuerteventura, which are Corralejo (North) and Morro Jable (South). We personally find that these two towns can be quite crowded with tourists at times. When we go on holiday, the most important thing for us is to find somewhere nice and cosy where we can take time for ourselves away from the rush and the noise of any touristic spot. We found all of this in the Residence Playa Paraiso, uniquely located on the top a small hill facing the Atlantic Ocean. Whenever we go there, we know we will be in a quiet and relaxing place where we can free ourselves from worrying thoughts and busy routines. This is how and why we fell in love with our flat and its unique location.
The flat has been created and decorated on purpose following the line of simplicity. It has all the essentials needed but it's not over furnished. It looks comfortable and welcoming. The idea is to welcome our guests in ‘their space‘, to make them feel good in a decluttered space. How many times we live in houses too full of useless things that we keep because we do not dare throwing it away?! Well, for my husband and I, simplifying our life style was one of the steps we made towards happiness. Less junk and material things, more space and time for yourself, your feelings, your mind. That's why you won’t find a TV: we find it useless, especially on holiday! Books are much better because they will make you reflect instead of feeding you with (bad) news. We want to invite our guests to look outside the window, to explore the beaches and the sea, to be themselves and live their holiday the best way possible.
Last but not least, let’s talk about sleeping! In the main bedroom our guests will find a king’s size bed with a memory foam mattress. Why? Because the important thing is not how many hours you sleep but the quality of your sleep! We want our guests to declutter from the busy working lives they have and to sleep in the best way possible. Sleeping well makes everyone feel more relaxed but also more full of energies.
Finally, we would like to share with our guests the motto of our life: CARPE DIEM! What we value most in our lives is time: take time for yourself and live your life at 100%. You will have no regrets, believe us! And why not starting changing your habits and your life with an amazing holiday at our place?!

We strongly recommend our guests to hire a car and drive around the island in order to make the most of their holidays! If you need any advice, we can help you with this too! Fuerteventura is the oldest Canary Island and the windiest. A near constant breeze is welcome fuel for the windsurfers and kite boarders and is also very appreciated by the sunbathers, especially in the hottest months of the year. Over the centuries, wind has moulded the hills into softer, more appealingly curvaceous shapes. There is also a stronger sense of feeling closer to Africa, the landscape often having a North African flavour, helped by thousands of goats who wander freely across the burnt orange hills. Fuerteventura is the beach paradise of the Canary Islands, with golden sand beaches and turquoise seas. There are also a few pretty historic villages. We fell in love with this island because there are only two seasons: spring and summer, all year round! This is not true for all the rest of the islands in the Canary Islands. So…come and enjoy this paradise!
