Fabulous Spring Sunshine break!
Had an amazing time at Villa Afrika from 31 March to 7 April. Perfect location and close to everything you need. We walked to the dunes (4 hrs round the coast with nice drink breaks) and shared a taxi back with another family. Frank was very helpful with all pre information and Alwin (our transfer driver) told us of a few local places to visit (sunset bar etc) Shame the pool is not heated as it was too cold for us to use but the hot tub was a welcome addition. A guest book or information folder, for passing on tips and places to visit, would also be a good addition as we had to work out where the rubbish went (just down the street) and how to use TV, hot tub etc. All in all a lovely base for a beautiful town and we will definitely be back again! Thanks Frank and Ellen
Frank was on hand with a friendly meet and greet, quick to respond to emails and phone throughout our stay and very helpful.
The villa is in a residential area within easy walking of shops, supermarket, bars and buses. It is fairly well equipped although the kitchen is very small. There are several outside sitting areas, all of which are overlooked in some way or another so if you're looking for complete privacy this might not suit. It is also opposite a busy skateboard park which is great if you have kids but not if you are seeking peace and quiet in the evenings. There were also workmen working on a neighbouring property when we were there, creating some noise, which is often a risk in a built up area.
Its name, Villa Afrika, gives away the theme of the decor which can be slightly oppressive unless you're into that type of thing. The bed was comfortable but everything, including the bed linen, could really do with an update. There were good quality new towels. The outdoor furniture is obviously affected by the sand in the air and would benefit from a deep clean, decoration and new covers. The pool is smallish but well maintained and enough for a cooling dip. Correlejo is a fairly relaxed and friendly area and the villa is an easy flat walk to the beach and within walking distance of the more built up areas with a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants if sought.
Not what we was expecting
there was things listed that was not there DVD PLAYER VIDEO GAMES
And there was a broken window it would not close a broken patio door and a loose banister on the stairs.
and we still have not received our deposit back for no damage / breakages
We, two couples, stayed for a week at Villa Afrika in April. The Villa was like a Tardis and there was plenty of room for us not to be under each others feet. Apart from the pool area there were a further three terraces to enjoy so we were never short of somewhere to relax! From our first enquiry, until we left, Frank and Ellen, the owners, were very friendly, and helpful, promptly responding to our e-mails and questions. Frank was at the Villa to give us a tour and further information on Corralejo when we arrived, which was much appreciated. The Villa is a five minute walk from the Campanario Centre where there was a large Dino Supermarket and plenty of bars and restaurants so you don't have to go far in order to shop, eat and drink! There is also a market held in the centre two, or three, times a week and there were some lovely artisan wares to be found. The walk into Corralejo itself took around ten minutes where you could find everything you could want! Galera Beach for Paella Marisco on Sunday lunch-time is a must, especially with a jug, or two, of Sangria, along with a DJ playing chill-out music! We would definitely recommend Villa Afrika and hope to return in the future.
Lovely base for a family break
Lovely spacious 2 bed villa, nicely furnished with various furnished terraces to eat and sunbathe around the building and a nice swimming pool down a few steps, the fact that it was slightly lower than the terraces meant that it was very private, although in January, it was a little too cool to swim for us unfortunately.
it felt like a safe area, with easy parking and is very close to the Campanario Centre, so 10-15 mins leisurely walk from the nearest beach (near Galera beach hotel) and about another 5 minutes to get to the start of the old town from there. The newer area with a large selection of bars, cafes and restaurants is even closer but there is a good Hiperdino Supermarket, selling most of the things you would need if you didnt want to eat out every day, and various cafes and restaurants inside the Campanario if you dont want to go too far.
Frank was excellent, communicating everything accurately through the booking process and explaining things if we queried. We texted on leaving the airport (we'd hired a car, but he does offer a pick up service at additional cost if required) and he met us at the property to give us a tour and some advice on the local area. He was available if we needed him and arrived promptly at the time we had agreed to leave, to collect the keys.
Overall, an excellent stay, the weather was lovely as well, although you needed a jacket in the evening. We hope to visit again soon. Thanks again.
Thank you for your comment, and we're happy to hear that you had such a nice time in the villa and Corralejo. Of course we hope to see you back soon, greetings Frank
Gorgeous Villa near everything.
The villa is gorgeous. We had privacy and great views. It had everything we needed and walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go.
Frank & Ellen were wonderful. It was our honeymoon and they pulled out all the stops for us and made us feel very welcome and special. Massive Thank You to both of you Tuxedo was AMAZING!
We really enjoyed our stay at the villa and we would recommend to anyone. Frank is only ever a phone call away and nothing is too much trouble for him.
Gorgeous villa, lovely owners.
