About Sharon Clare Pacitti
Hello Guests, I had lived in Fuerteventura 13 years working , due to the recession have now returned to the U.K I had lived in my nice little house for seven years. I came to Fuerteventura on holiday many years ago and fell in love with Island. Thirteen years on the Island and feel it's time for new horizons. What a lovely idea to be able to share my house with others. Please respect my home as you would your own and have a lovely time. Sharon
Sharon Clare Pacitti purchased this House in 2006
Why Sharon Clare Pacitti chose La Oliva
I chose this little house as I fell straight in love with it. It's a most unusual older style quaint little property. It is centrally located. Walking distance to the beach , shops and some lovely restaurants. If you fancy a drink I can recommend Chablis just round the corner Yet you would never think so as it is tucked away in a quiet little spot.
What makes this House unique
After being on the beach it is a great feeling coming back to this house. Such a short stroll. Or you could just sunbathe on the roof with a cocktail . There is also a washing machine and line available on the sun roof for longer staying guests. I have had a beautiful fully fitted kitchen installed recently. It has a separate dining room too. Oh and lovely unusual fire place. Being on ground level would also be suitable for people with disability problems. It's a perfect holiday home. Enjoy

Quaint little house was a Very big disappointment ,in need of a lot of repairs and refurbishment
We feel bitterly disappointed with the villa,failed expectations ,misleading photographs and comments. On arrival our first impressions was how drab it
was,looking closer the sofas had towels on the arms covering the worn arms.
Lights in lounge not working. Dining room table was an old white plastic
patio table ,curtain pole was held up with string , mould round the window frame and Was dimly lit.
Kitchen. Microwave /dishwasher out of order,temporarily microwave was
dirty and rusty inside,as was the oven. Mis mash of glasses,crockery, pans and cutlery.
Ceiling light held five bulbs but only had two bulbs in because we were told if
there were more , the electric would flicker,same as bedroom and bathroom.
Water pressure in hot tap almost non existentant (neighbours either side
Didn’t have a problem with their water pressure !!). It was quicker to boil
a kettle to have a wash.Showers where a challenge. Although we expected the island to be Warm in the day, we knew it would probably be cool at night and morning. We were told that there was no heater available.
We felt the whole place was damp,had mould round the windows and blistering plaster in places on the walls.
We feel the whole place needs, decorating, re.wiring, re.plumbing and
It was so depressing staying in the villa which unfortunately we booked for
a month, so we ate out a lot which we hadn’t budgeted for.
Only given the one star !!! for the location which was good .
I am so sorry you seem to find everything so displeasing it must make life very difficult for you.
Although guests enjoyment is always our priority, I believe some truth in the saying you will never please everyone!
I'm also sorry you find it hard to accept that the majority of guests love my little house as do I.
Just to point out we have a 60% return guest rate who love the house and they always remark on the updating and work that has been done. So must be doing something right!
Just a few things are new windows, front and back door.
Interior and exterior painting regularly.
New door handles, new television stand.
The curtain pole is held with cord not string and goes with the rustic caricature of the room.
The covers on the sofas are for protection not to hide anything.
Yes the chandelier holds many bulbs and there were spares in the house I believe the house manager helped you resolve this. Everything was and is working, You were also assisted with this. Previously guests had said it was too bright which is why we don't fill them all. The house has to be checked regularly ban electrician for Health and Safety and certainly doesn't need re-wiring.
There is a solid wooden table outside, previous guests changed these round and this has been left as most guests prefer it and like to eat outside but like to have the lighter plastic one so they may take it out if they wish.
There is absolutely NO MOLD , As the house benefits from location right near the sea, the sea air does cause a little dampness and peeling paint which is constantly redone.
The reasonable price doesn't include extra heating. This has never been requested before its always so warm. Im quite sure you would not have waited to pay for it.
You do have justification on one thing which is the water pressure. It is no secret we have had problems with the pressure on the hot tap of the bathroom sink.
We are trying to resolve this and finally on plumber number 8 we believe he has found the cause and is going to replace the pipes in the front wall which are furred up. As you are aware Clare (housekeeper) had a plumber round during your stay.
He is carrying out the work next week. I write this for the benefit of future guests as you will not be welcome back nor do I feel you would want to return.
Lastly to mention the damage and breakage of one of the wardrobe which my house manager reported you refused responsibility or payment for.
Fortunately the majority of our guests are appreciative.
Great location & lots of indoor & outdoor space
Such a great location - within walking distance of everything but also nice and peaceful. The space indoors was great and the kitchen genuinely had as much equipment as we have at home so we were able to cook meals when we wanted (& even squeeze fresh oranges!). It was great to have the basics like salt & pepper and oil, which are often missing from self catering properties. The outdoor space was generous too (although it would have been nice if we could have moved the table into the sunshine as the sun moved round but the pretty garden meant that wasn't possible. It's probably different later in the year when the sun is higher though). The roof terrace was great - in the sunshine until around 4pm in January and a real suntrap as you're sheltered from the wind. Having access to a washing machine was amazing and means you don't have to bring so many clothes and can easily wash swimming costumes & towels after being on the beach. Then only downside was the shower - the pressure was so low that sometimes we struggled, especially with longer hair. It absolutely wouldn't stop us recommending Casa Julia as a place to stay though and we'd definitely come back (& probably will!).
The property had everything we needed and was in a central location. Would definitely use again.
Two minutes walk to the closest beach and a 30 minute walk to the sand dunes. Shops ,bars and restuarents at the end of the road. Short stroll to the harbour .
The airport is half an hour away.
Very close to the center of Corralejo and only a couple of minutes walk to all the shops, bars, restaurants and supermarkets. You do not need a hire car or taxis.
Prices are based on two people sharing. There is an additional charge of five pounds per night per person
