About Ian and Elle Blackwood

We now live nearby our villa and property manage the villa ourselves. This means we are at hand should you require assistance with anything at all!

Ian and Elle Blackwood purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ian and Elle Blackwood chose La Oliva

We bought this property because it offered a quality build and great spacious accommodation in a nice community. The villa has had some major improvements, with a new en-suite and conservatory added, giving even more space for the comfort of the holiday maker.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is close to a couple of restaurants and British style bar, with a good supermarket all within a short walk from the villa

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Whoa!what a beautiful villa" When we booked the villa, we were a scared the villa would not live up to the photographs that were sent to us prior to our holiday. What a relief! the villa was even better than we thought, clean, fresh, with terrific quality furniture and utensils. This villa has everything you could want from holiday accommodation and more. We did not want to leave it! We will definitely be back. we had a wonderful time! Thanks for everything.

Prima huis met alles wat je nodig hebt!

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben het erg naar onze zin gehad in dit huis in fuerteventura. Het voelde echt als een thuis. Wij waren op vakantie met onze drie kinderen van 13, 9 en 8 jaar. Alles was keurig verzorgd en goed schoon. Het zwembad was voor de kinderen geweldig. Twee keer in de week kwam er een zwembadman, dus ook dat was goed geregeld. Het contact met de eigenaars verliep ook prima, je kan altijd bellen of mailen en krijgt dan ook snel antwoord. Wij hebben het hele eiland bekeken en moeten zeggen dat we op het beste stuk van het eiland zaten. Mooie omgeving bij de grote zandvlakte en het strand bij Corralejo is supermooi en helemaal niet druk.

Je moet wel even een auto huren, want het huis ligt in een urbanisatie net buiten Corralejo.

Kortom, zeker aan te bevelen!

all bottle but no shampoo!

  • 3 of 5

We arrived late only to find people already checked in to our villa that day . it was 9pm and we had a car full of tired children . After 45 min parked on the side of the road we got in contact with Ian and it turned out he had given us the wrong info pack and we where staying in a different apartment. not the best start to our holiday but i thought ,fair enough people make mistakes. to be fair it is a nice apartment and ian did try but the review on website leads you to believe that your booking a ''5* villa with heated pool'' with 5 bycicles on site. no where does it state additional charge for heated pool. we have 3 kids and they could not enjoy the pool for longer than 10 mins without shaking back into the house. the main reasons we booked the villa over others was for a heated pool, 5 bikes and wifi.

-5 bikes are advertised but none in villa

-pool is not heated unless requested for an additional cahrge of £40 (takes 3 days to heat so by the time we realised it was too late)

-wifi struggled to work at the best of times and only allows 1 device to connect.

also back door would not lock properly so didn't feel safe leaving valuables in villa.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 10 fabulous days in this little bit of heaven! The villa has everything you could wish for, a real home from home! It is decorated to a very high standard. It also has very good quality fittings right down to the towels! A bonus when you don't have to take lots of towels in your cases!

Thank you so much Ian and Elle for letting stay at your villa! Hope you'll have us back! Oh and can you thank Piers for everything too! :)

The Dougans!

Owner's Response: Hi guys! Many thanks for taking the time to write a reveiw. Elle & I are delighted you had such a good time and loved the villa. We work very hard to have the villa in good condition and are constantly upgrading and renewing things to make our holiday home a real home from home. Having the beach towels at the villa means there is no need for our guests to pack their own. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. Regards Elle & Ian.

Great get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Ian and Elle's home from from home. We were in need of a rest and that's what we got. We actually spent the majority of the time at the villa and it had everything we needed, including towels. This meant more room in our suitcases. There were a couple of small problems but these were sorted out quickly by Ian. We would recommend having a car as it is more than walking distance to Corralejo and the Dunes.

We have stayed in several villas or apartments over the years and have nearly always found that the kitchen was poorly equipped, but at Casa Paraiso we had everything we could ever need. The villa was spotless and English TV meant that we could keep track of the news and favourite programmes too. We particularly liked the sunbeds; very good design.

We had a lovely trip on Ian's catamaran as well.

All in all a great holiday.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Villa surpassed our expectations. It was even better than the pictures. We had an amazing week in Fuerteventura with this villa playing a huge part in that. The villa was spotless and there was nothing lacking (tons of towels,stocked kitchen items, movies and XBOX games for the kids, the list goes on). Great location, close to tons of beaches and the tourist strip. We had a rental car which made visiting places easy. There is a local bus that runs hourly as well.

Ian and Ellie were gracious hosts, providing tons of suggestions and guidance.

It was like a home away from home that we did not want to leave!

Car: recommended

The villa is situated in Tamaragua, a short drive from the bustle of Corralejo. Which offers great night life, shops, bars entertainment, Aqua park, new Theme park and not least of all, Fuerteventura has beautiful 'Carribean style' Beaches, bathed with warm aqua coloured waters. Fuerteventura is, in my opinion, the most beautiful of the Canary Islands. Offering unspoilt beaches, windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving to name a few of the things to do on Holiday. If relaxing by the private heated pool is more your thing, then Casa Paraiso 1 and 2 are just perfect. 360 Link below.
