Overview

Caleta de Fuste (El Castillo) Villa Rental Photos and Description

Heated Private Pool, 3 Bedrooms,2 twins 1 double bedroom, 2 showers, sleeps 6.

Three bedroom private house with private heated pool, rooftop sun terrace, secure front and back garden areas.Located only 1 minute walk from the restaurants/bars/mini golf of Montecastillo, and only 10 minutes path walk to the child friendly sandy beach of Caleta De Fuste. 10 mins walk to the new Atlantico Centre which houses many shops, restaurants, multiplex cinema, bowling alley, arcade and large EuroSpar. You can see the golf course and the sea from the roof terrace. The property comprises a large front terrace with a covered patio area, an open plan living area with 2 sofas, TV and DVD player, 1 master bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms, two looking onto the pool. Private heated pool with surrounding sunbathing area and large rooftop sun terrace. The kitchen diner is fully fitted with fridge/freezer, ceramic hob, dishwasher, oven and has a dining table. The patio has a table with 6 chairs. There is a also a small laundry room with a new washing machine.

Child friendly: The house is set up for a a family of up to 6. The front patio provides a secure play area for the children. There is plenty of space around the pool for the kids to play but obviously they will need monitoring in and around the pool. High chairs, cots and buggies can be hired but will cost extra. Airport meet and greet can also be arranged. There is a 24 hr emergency number and a wall safe. Smoking is allowed but not inside the house. Entry is by a keybox or you can be met for €10

Heated Pool: The pool heating was added in Nov 11 and can bring the pool temperature up to a constant 28 degrees. The cost for this is currently £50 per week and is optional. I would highly recommend this for most of the year but it is not essential, especially in August.

Location/Tourist Attraction: The house is an easy walk to all the amenities and beach and is also in a good position to explore the island either by car or bus. A hire car is not essential. The most popular attractions are the Zoo, Water Park and glass bottomed boat.

About Steve Claringbould

Steve, father of 3 boys, married 15 years. Spent 20 years in the Royal Air Force instructing pilots and flying the C-130. Currently working for a large airline on the Airbus Fleet. Visit the villa twice a year if I can. Live in Oxfordshire.

Steve Claringbould purchased this villa in 2003

Why Steve Claringbould chose Caleta de Fuste (El Castillo)

We bought the villa what seems an age ago. Really liked the island and thought Caleta an excellent place for young families to holiday (our youngest was 6 months at the time). Great location within walking distance of everything you need for a family holiday.

What makes this villa unique

Private heated pool. You can escape the kids up on the sun terrace and you have the shaded front patio for al fresco dining. On a quiet street away from noise but the supermarket is just around the corner.

Everything we hoped it would be.

Great villa.
Steve was very helpful prior to the holiday with booking and last minute questions etc. We chose to have transport to and from the airport (25€ a bargain). The directions to meet our lift were very clear and "spot on". Jeff was waiting for us on our arrival and he left us in no doubt that he would be there to take us back to the airport at the requested time. On arrival at the villa our first impression was how spotlessly clean it was and were delighted to find a large bottle of water waiting for us in the fridge, thanks Sue. Sue popped in a couple of hours after our arrival to make sure everything was ok and to reassure us that if we had any problems she was on hand. The pool was lovely, my wife was most impressed with the attention to detail : ie, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, travel plug adapters etc.
Many thanks Steve we will definitely be returning.
Russ & Christine.

Pefect for our large family (2 aduls,4 kids)

  • 5 of 5
Our family consisted of 2 adults and kids of 14 ,9,6 and 2.
We have stayed in the area near by in two all inclusive hotels (Dorada and Bronncemar) but due to lage group we felt a villa would best suit our needs but found it quite daunting booking online but so glad we did.
The photos are much how you find the villa and is clean and well maintained, Steve always answered any questions I had and promptly too and Sue who manages the villa dealt with any queries/minor issues superbly.
The villa is perfectly situated , which is why we wanted it along with the fact it was a bargin, the montecastillo centre is at the end of the street which has mini supermarket (Hiperdino) attached and a brit store accross the road . Also in the centre are pubs The Bell and Red Lion and many other bar/restaurants great for me to watch football 2.5 euros for pint of san miguel and fine for snacks mainly as we tended to go into town for meals.
The villa was well equiped plenty of plastic beakers and plates for kids ( even took kids beakers with us) and standard size mugs as nothing worse than tiny coffee cup. The oven works well as does toaster and kettle hifi and decent size tv for some downtime or watching a dvd . There is quite alot of storage available , more than is shown in photos.
The pool is great, it looks quite small on photos but was adequate for our needs , the layout was perfect for us as there is the front area which because it can be and was locked we never needed to worry about the youngest child getting out also your not constantly watching or searching for kids in masses of other children makes it so much more relaxing for mum and dad which was a first for us.
We hired cycles for a day which was great and would recommend the zoo which has free bus from the shopping centre next door you can't miss them covered in animals, long day as leave about 8.50 and buses do not leave until 6pm also you could book in advance online as it is cheaper. Most of the time we just chilled around the pool or went to the beaches nearest of which is 10 mins the one we prefered was a further 5-10 mins along the beach as less stoney in water next to the Atlantico shopping centre where large eurospar is for shopping only 3.5 euros back minibus taxi.So many restaurants to choose from Fado Rock always fantastic, Lins cafe and Wild west all in town and Nestors a little higher up road by villa.
Have enquired about returning and am happy to answer any questions anybody may have.

Great villa in a great location

  • 4 of 5
We loved our stay in this villa (my husband, myself & our 2 children aged 5 & 1). It was clean & spacious. Well equipped with everything you may need. In a great location approx 10 mins from the centre of Caleta de Fuste & the beach. The private pool was fantastic. We paid to have the pool heated for a few days as it was too cold for our 12 month old but probably wouldn't have otherwise. You are approx 10 mins away from the airport by taxi which cost us approx €15. Sue the manager was very helpful & flexible with our departure time. Steve the owner was easily reachable via phone or e mail & was prompt to respond to any enquiries we made. We would definitely go back, we had a fantastic week. Can highly recommend. Thanks Steve & Sue!

Owner's Response: Emma,
Thank you for your kind review and please come back soon. I recommend pool heating, especially if they are young kids) as it ensures that the kids will go in and stay in the pool. The pool heating is not needed all year around so I can allow guests to decide if they would like heating when they arrive.

We had a lovely stay in this Villa, which is really well equipped, we took lots of inflatables etc for the pool, but there is absolutely everything you could need! Fab location, near the heart of it all without being in the thick of the noise!! Would highly recommend eating at 'La Bodeguita' an Italian restaurant/pizzeria, food was amazing. We hired a car whilst we were there (cheaper than pre-arranging from airport) and drove to Costa Calma, which was absolutely stunning - if you want to see the other side of the island it's so worthwhile. The customer service i wouldn't fault either and would recommend this villa and also stay here again myself.

Caleta de Fuste is a new and developing family resort with lots of amenities and a great climate all year round. Just around the corner are the restaurants/bars/minigolf of Montecastillo and the beach is only a five minute walkaway. The man made child friendly beach has golden sand and is pretty well sheltered from the wind and has plenty of sunbeds. The Caleta marina has a number of restaurants and you can enjoy a variety of boat trips including a glass bottomed boat tour of the bay, whale watching from a Catamaran and deep-sea fishing. The boat trips also includes a look around the aquarium and a Sea Lion show which the kids will love! Caleta is only 10km from the airport and has excellent road links to help you explore the island. There is an 18 hole PGA golf course within walking distance which has hosted the Spanish Open. About 10 mins walk away is the new Atlantico Center which has a variety of shops and restaurants and a multiplex cinema, large arcade and bowling alley.
