A property with Rustic charm well off the beaten track

  • 4 of 5

Total Peace,quiet & privacy but with a few compromises

4kms from El Cortillo via a dirt track so not realistically within walking distance of restaurants & facilities so ended up in the car more than planned

the walk to the nearest beach was also further than expected and on a windy or hot day was challenging

Some of the property details were 'lost in translation' I.e

American style kitchen (well equipt but not large enough to swing a cat)

1/2 bath in reality 2 showers

Having said all that we would still choose to stay there again

Owner's Response: We are happy that you have enjoy peace, quiet and privacity and we hope you enjoyed the views and the out space too. Effectively, this week was particulary windy and hot, named « Calima » (some few times during the year). As confirmed per many others hosts, the Homelidays page with google earth, descritpion and photos exactly match with reality: - To have peace and nature in an ornithological protected area mean be far enough from town and civilisation that is to say 4kms (5 minuts per car) as specificate in the web with description, google earth and photos (both also sent per mail to you before your second payment). The distance to the beach also is seen. A house with direct access to the beach would be ideal but legally impossible and, the rental price would also be different. - The kitchen is open to the lounge, not separated per a wall. I think that match with american kitchen definition (wikipedia). The space to swing is more than one meter, so normally suficient. You also have two photos in the Homelidays web. - On the photos and in the text of the principal page of our Homelidays advert, bathrooms are showers with lavabo and not bathtubs. We always try our best to satisfy our hosts and improve the rental : hosts have for example access to a play area with trampoline and wooden children´s hut and, recently access to one more terrace from sea side. I hope you will understand that this rating of 4 stars seems a bit hard and not correspond to the general appreciations (1 per 50 persons). We hope to see you again in our beautiful island to enjoy sun and beaches. Best Regards Johan

Everything we could have wished for

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideally situated as while it is located on its own it is within walkable distance from El Cotillo and the sea. We were able to have a number of meals out and then walk back taking in the views including the stars in the clear night sky. We also found a number of tracks across the open space giving direct access to the beaches along the coast.

A lot of thought has been given to the layout of the property. It had two main patios and a roof terrace together with a further internal open space, allowing us aways to be able to sit outside with a view regardless of the wind direction or if we wished to sit in the shade. Also while compact the kitchen area was well laid out and enabled us to easily cook all our meals. The best bit about the layout was that it was very different from anything we had stayed in before and made our holiday more special. Thought has also been given to the outside space and how this is shared with the owner's, Aline and Johan. We had our own seperate entrance and views from the patios, although they were close by and very helpful when we needed them.

Our holiday was very relaxing and enjoyable and this property and its location was the reason. We are looking forward to a return visit.

We would strongly recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet, comfortable holiday with picturesque views.

Peaceful, romantic, great views

  • 5 of 5

A perfect retreat for some peace and relaxation.

The accommodation is spacious and very comfortable, and has everything you will need for a fabulous holiday.

We enjoyed our breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the mountains and had a spectacular view of the stars at night.

The village is a short journey away as are the beaches and lagoons of El Cotillo.

Aline and Johan are wonderful hosts who are available for any help that you may need, but who very much take a back seat, so it is easy to forget you are not the only people there.

This was my second visit and I hope to stay again one day.

Ideal für ruhige und entspannte Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt etwa 4 Kilometer außerhalb von El Cotillo, vielleicht 500 Meter vom Atlantik entfernt. In dieser Lage ist man absolut ungestört. Das Haus selbst ist sehr schön mit Anklängen an marokkanische Architektur. Je nach Sonnenstand und Wind fand man auf einer der Terrassen immer ein schönes geschütztes Plätzchen. Innen ist das Haus sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr gut ausgestattet. Besonders die Ausstattung der Küche ließ keine Wünsche offen.

Gelegentlich haben sich die Hühner bei uns zum Frühstück eingefunden, manchmal auch die Eselin, die gerne an den Hibiskusblüten knabberte.

Der Vermieter ist ausgesprochen nett, wenn seine Hilfe mal nötig war, war er immer zur Stelle.

Wir fanden, dass dieses Haus ein wirklicher Glücksgriff war, ideal für uns als vierköpfige Familie.

we would come back

  • 5 of 5

This place in the middle of nowhere in the Northwest of Fuerteventura is most appropriate for a recreative holiday. The house, built in some kind of Northafrican style is spacious, tastefully and afectionately furnished and decorated. You don't know which of the many terraces and patios to use first. You can see the sea which is the only you can hear there beside the chicken and the donkey which live at that place. The owners also live there - they take a back seat but are here immediately when you need some help. We would come back!

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a wonderful place to retreat immediately from daily life, from stress and from hectic rush you can stop your search - you found it here! Aline's and Johan's house was the perfect location for our holidays: out in the mere nature, authentic, quiet, clean, comfortable, spacious and cozy. We loved the views from the patio towards the mountains and from the terrace towards the sea. And we appreciated the fact, that we could start hiking and biking just from our holiday home and that the beaches and surf spots were really close. Thank you Johan and Aline to provide such a great holiday location for your guests and thank you for your warm welcome and attention. Whenever we come back to Fuerteventura we'll be happy to stay at your house again.
