Overview

La Oliva Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4, 2 bed & sofa bed, modern rustic, beautiful palm trees & cactus garden

Casa Velero is a beautiful semi-detached, modern, rustic Villa built with the best materials: stone, terracotta floors and tiles, etc. Only 100m away from the water edge and in the best area of town, quiet but within five minutes of all the central amenities. Please note that due to the nature of the garden ''spikes in captus and palms'' and to the very quiet nature of this area children are not allowed in the property (all visitors must be over 18 years of age).The spacious and bright open plan kitchen-dinning-living area is superbly equipped to the standard of a modern home. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The first floor master bedroom has two terraces facing the north-east sunrise, the sea, Lobos Island and the beautiful cactus garden and large pool and barbecue and a south-west secluded terrace for private sun tanning. The U shape design of the mini complex of six houses makes the beautiful palm and captus garden, a heaven for relaxation and sun tanning. Its large (9 m by 4 m) pool and solarium with lounges and chairs , will make difficult the decision of walking to the famous Corralejo Sand dunes or the nearby shops, market and water Park.

Food, shopping, travel, night life, banks: Corralejo offers a great variety of good restaurants to appreciate local and international cuisine, many of them along a promenade overlooking the sea,There is a wide choice of nice shops and Supermarkets. A bus service operates throughout the Island, and a boat leaves hourly sailing to Lanzarote (18 min journey). The harbour offers all sort of entertainment from Catamaran sailing to fishing or day trips to Lobos Island. The night life is great ,with a variety of bars offering life music, or a quiet drink depending on mood. There are international banks too.

Kite surfing, wind-surfing, sailing, scuba diving: Fuerteventura is well known for the spectacular beaches and sun dunes of the Parque Natural, which is approx. 500 m away from Casa Velero, stretching for 14 km. the Rocky Point (one of the best surfing spots in Canaries) is five minutes walking another five and you are in Flag Beach one of the 'hot' spots for windsurfing and kite surfing in Europe. Carry on into Oliva Beach with its gorgeous dunes and you have your day. Some people come to Fuerteventura just to see this breathtaking Natural Park. Organized trips to do scuba diving, sailing, Jet ski, etc. is just 400 m away from Casa Velero. If you stay longer than a week, renting a car will allow you to see other beautiful places in this exotic Island. In the south, Cofete is a unique sight and the inside of the Island with its old capital city Antigua or the postcard beauty of Betancuria make worth a day in car, driving through gentle hills of volcanic origin.

Exotic days out, mountain bike, horse riding: Help with car rental, and transfers from and to the airport, with a large van (for groups with more than 4 people or with large luggage e. g. surf boards, etc). Occasionally I take guests for short excursions, volcano climbing, and mountain biking or surf tuition. I can organize excursions for you with local companies. Horse riding, mountain biking, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, jet-ski, fishing, motocross, quads, etc. are also available. Film crews are welcome, I can offer help with location scouting, etc.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a brilliant stay at Casa Velero. The details of the villa are just as described and so much more. We stayed as a group of four ladies and found there was more than enough room . The villa is accessed through a locked gate and has a lovely , peaceful atmosphere. Edwardo is on hand if you have any problems but not intrusive. Short walk on an evening takes you into town where there are lots of different restaurants to suit every taste. During the day we relaxed around the pool but did have a lovely day out to Isla de Lobos . Would recommend Casa Velero for a lovely relaxing holiday and we would certainly book this villa again in the future.

100%

  • 5 of 5

Casa Velero is 100% everything the website describes it to be. But so much more too. Eduardo couldn't be a more amiable, helpful and delightful "landlord." He is on hand to advise and answer any questions but in no way intrusive.

The villa is very comfortable, great location and well equipped. As previous guests have described it to be, the villa is well located so you can get away from it all or be in the thick of it very easily. Whiling away the days reading by the pool surrounded by stunning cactii laid garden borders or mooching about in the locals shops, bars and restaurants the options are plentiful. The beaches are endless and the roads are a dream to drive on. We played golf near Calete de Fuste just under an hour away on pleasant golf courses though Salinas was our preferred one as it was quieter and in better condition.

We would thoroughly recommend Casa Velero as a great place to stay.

Thanks Eduardo for a lovely time. By the way we are still missing Maggie. 😒

A great mix of relaxation and good fun

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, if Eduardo see's this, I apologise that it's taken about 3 months to remember to leave a review!

Myself and 4 friends stayed with Eduardo for a week and cannot fault our stay in any way. The villa itself is in a secure, quiet area with easy access to the pool and only a few minutes walk from the main town and Eduardo was always on hand to help with anything we needed.

The place itself was pretty much exactly what we were looking for - it offers the option of quiet nights or nights that quickly become morning depending on where you go in town. Don't go expecting it to be a party resort, it isn't, but that's not to say you can't enjoy a night out. Oh and if you don't already get sent there by everyone you speak to, make sure you check out the bar on the beach Waikiki; fantastic food through the day and a great atmosphere in to the evening.

Activity wise we tried both Scuba and windsurfing, both well worth it. Eduardo has really good knowledge of which schools are the best to go to so just ask him which provide the best value for money.

IDEAL LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 10 days in August and had a lovely relaxing holiday. Eduardo is a lovely man with a good command of English, he is always on hand to help with any problems or queries you may have. ( lives at the back of the property but completely separate from the house. ) The property is nicely situated on a small private complex of 5 houses and completely secure with locked gateway. Lovely swimming pool which nice and clean and not too cold. Also a outside shower after your swim. My wife and I seemed to have the pool entirely to ourselves throughout our stay. The local supermarket is on 3 Mins Walk away and we found it to be very cheap, especially fruit and veg. Spanish tomatoes are sooooooo much better than back here in England. The town of Corralejo is only a 10 Min stroll away where you will find many bars and restaurants, however depending on your age ( ie. over 60 ) the best area is the OLD TOWN at the end of the high street where you will find some lovely restaurant right on the beach, LA-PLAYITA right on the sea front is lovely. Just around the corner from there is the Music square where, as we did most night just sat with a glass or 2 of wine and listened to the live music. Many people young and old were up Dancing in the square. The main Beach where the 2 RIU Hotels are is a 5 min bus ride away, very high waves the days we went and no swimming, however a very long beach leading to the Dunes. Overall a relaxing holiday where a car is not needed at all if all you want is to relax and walk to town etc. Eduardo will assist you if you wish to take a trip or arrange for a PROPER Taxi to go somewhere. Would definitely return if we go back to Fuerteventura in the future. At the moment found most of the restaurants to be good value for money. Wish were back there now as is pouring with rain as I right this, Oh well, maybe next year.

Owner's Response: Irina and Fred , were happy and excited about Casa Velero from the moment they arrived from Uk , this was a good start, as I put a lot of attention to my Villa and the first impression is generally telling about weather they like the place (or not) . Their questions about the house ,Corralejo, the beaches etc showed the natural interest and appreciation for the things that this beautiful Island has to offer .. During their stay they treated the house very well , living the villa in a very good state and at the time they told me originally. I will recommend this gentle and polite couple to any house owner..although I will like to see them coming to ''Casa Velero'' again and again..;0). Thanks for your nice and constructive review . Wishing you all the best for the short future ..till the time I hopefully see you around in Corralejo .

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review Deborah . The enjoyment of the Villa and Corralejo is the best feedback that I can have for the Villa and my work of keeping this nice house a comfortable and relaxing retreat . You left the Villa in fantastic conditions after your departure , thanks for that. Also my girlfriend and I ,decided to research all the good restaurant and bars in the area and realised that the list suggested by TripAdvisor in their review of North Fuerteventura, is very accurate to our own taste ..both Pincha Cabra and Caracoles figuring in the list .. Hope to see you around again , and thanks for taking the time to express your views of the Villa etc. Kind regards.

Corralejo, in the north of the ''Quiet Island’’ is the gem of Fuerteventura. With five natural parks, the region of ''La Oliva'' is the perfect place for a relaxation break. The breath-taking beauty of the desert, its golden-white sandy beaches, its volcanoes contrasting against a deep blue sea and the view over the islands of Lanzarote and Lobos, leave an unforgettable memory. Corralejo also offers a truly international cuisine and great night-life. Very well connected to historic villages and coastal little towns in the vicinity (were you can appreciate the crafts, the architecture, its local cheese and organic grown vegetables etc), and for the sport lover it offers a wide range of both water sport possibilities and trekking, mountain biking, volcano climbing etc. (the owner of Casa Velero can give advise in interesting excursions in the vicinity, sports etc).

Other Activities: Kite surfing, deep sea fishing, motocross, yoga, pilates and other relaxing sports

Golf: The beautiful Golf Club at Caleta de Fuste (host of the 2004 Spanish Open on the PGA European Tour) is 35 min away by car. For a taste of Golf, in the new Attraction centre ''Baku'' (five min walking distance) a golf driving range (good for your swing) and a big mini golf area.
