Renting a car for the duration of your stay is highly recommended.

A travel cot and high chair are available upon request.

The water on Fuerteventura is desalinated and it is always recommended to drink bottled water unless boiled first.

The town of Caleta de Fuste is located around a 10minute drive from the airport. It is therefore possible to see planes over the town.

We respectfully ask that smoking is limited to the external areas of the property ( this also includes electronic cigarettes). All cigarettes/ cigars/ pipes etc are to be extinguished in the provided ash trays and disposed of in the correct manner.

We hope you enjoy your holiday on Fuerteventura and in particular your stay in Casa Olivia. We politely ask that you vacate the property by 11:00am on the day of departure and we would appreciate the property being left in the same condition as it was found to ensure a quick turn around.

About Antonia

We moved to Fuerteventura 11 years ago. The island offered the peace and tranquility that we searched for.

Since moving to the island we have become involved with the local animal protectoras and I now help to rehabilitate and rehome unwanted and abandoned cats and dogs.

A time consuming but very rewarding job.

In our spare time we like to explore the island and search out the hidden treasures of Fuerteventura.

Antonia purchased this house in 2015

Why Antonia chose Antigua

Casa Olivia is lovingly cared for by myself and my family. Therefore attention to detail is paramount and of great importance to us. We deal directly with initial bookings, meet and greets, cleaning and general maintenance. There are no middle men and there is no room for error.

Our priority to make your holiday as worry and care free as possible.

What makes this house unique

Casa Olivia is a private house. Unlike many other properties on La Colina, the house is not overlooked from the front or the back. Once in the garden, the house becomes your very own home from home. A lovely view both from the front and the back sets Casa Olivia apart from others in the same area.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday and loved this villa. It was spacious and very homely. The kitchen was well

Equipped and the welcome hamper when we arrived was a lovely touch. The outside space was great too and we made good use of the barbecue and eating area. Antonia was very helpful and easily contactable for any queries if needed.

The communal pool area is a short walk away and having two young boys we used this a lot. There were plenty of sunbeds and space around the pool and you could go down at any time and get a space. It was a good size main pool with baby pool too. The walk to the beach was about 20minutes and we walked along the main road into Caletta and had some lovely meals. We tended to get a taxi home as they were not expensive.

We would love to return to casa Olivia again and would highly recommend! Thank you Antonia and family for having us!

Lovely comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first visit to Calle de Fuste but was the first time we had stayed at Villa Olivia and we were not disappointed. Beautifully decorated and furnished to a very high standard it has to be one of the nicest villas we have stayed in . Antonia was very welcoming on our arrival and kept in touch throughout the week . There was everything you could possibly need from the kitchen equipment to beach towels and all the extra little goodies that Antonia had left like water and milk oh and not forgetting the chocolates! All in all a great place to stay , we would definitely recommend Villa Olivia.

Superb Accommodation - spacious and well presented

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely stay at Casa Olivia. Antonia met us at the Villa and showed us everything that the Villa had to offer. There was absolutely everything that is needed for a holiday, be it a short stay or indeed any length. Really spacious home. We had 3 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for all 5 of us.

Situated in a quiet area, with views of the sea and golf course to the front, and hills at the rear. Front and back balconies gave a good all-round view of the area. The pool is a very short walk away (1-2 minutes) and has plenty of good quality sunbeds. Large pool about 4 to 4.5 feet deep, and a separate baby pool.

The walk to Atlantico Shopping Centre is approx 15-20 minutes downhill. Not sure how long it is walking to Calete De Fuste as we took a taxi there and back each time (about 4-5 euros). Atlantico is around 4 Euros a journey

Atlantico beach is simply superb and far better than Calete de Fuste's offering. Very safe lagoon area that shelters the beach from any larger waves, with plenty of small fish to keep the kids amused. Sunbeds are 3.5 euros each and the same for a brolly/shade. Lovely golden sand. Atlantico Centre has a large Spar with everything that you need at reasonable prices.

The restaurants at Atlantico are okay but probably above-average - we tended to go to Calete de Fuste for our meals. First night we tried Wild West as it was busy and looked popular...it was okay but nothing special (burgers were basic!). Lins Bar/restaurant has decent priced meals and a good variety - excellent quality and service too, so we ate there twice! We tried to eat at Frado's but it was fully booked with a big queue each time we went there, however the "sister" restaurant across the road on the corner served excellent fayre. Try the fillet steak on Lava stone - lovely and juicy! We have friends that have a villa there and travel there regularly. They recommend "15" restaurant and also "555" and Frados but they also said that there are a lot of other good eateries as well

Finally, Antonia and her son, Aston, did everything they could to ensure our stay was fantastic. It is a great base to explore the island. If I come back to Calete de Fuste I will certainly try and book this lovely villa again

A relaxing time in a beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing two weeks at Casa Olivia this August! Antonia and Graham were lovely hosts. Very welcoming and left us a much appreciated hamper of goodies on our first night and brought us eggs from their farm mid stay, which our little girls were very excited about. The house is a 'home from home', perfect for a relaxing holiday with everything you could need (including sky sports which my husband was very happy about!) Our 5 and 2 year old girls had lots of fun in the spacious and secure garden. We made good use of the BBQ and sun loungers too.

We spent most of time at the nearby pool, which also had a kids' pool which was perfect for our 2 year old. The beach, supermarket, bars and restaurants are about a 15 minute walk away, with the lovely marina a further short stroll along the promenade. You can booked excursions in the shopping centre and at the marina and you can arrange pick up

from the Elba golf hotel which is about a 5 minute walk from the house. Thanks again for a great holiday, we may well be back one day! The Nicholls

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Antonias property in La Colina. It's well placed for Caleta (there is a bit of a hill down to the main shopping center but taxis are very cheap). House had everything we needed and Antonia was very easy to deal with, replying to questions very promptly. Fresh eggs on our arrival and a welcome pack was very well received x

Offered everything we required.

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Fuerteventura before but are so pleased that we did. The island was lovely and the property and the location was ideal for us. Very well cared for and maintained. The owner was very kind and accomodating and we even had a small hamper of goodies when we arrived. Mid stay and the owner passed by with fresh free range eggs from their private farm. What more can I say!

The house had everything we required and we will definately return.

Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail.

The bay of Caleta de Fuste offers a lovely sandy beach. Great for sunbathing and swimming. The shallow waters are good for the little ones. A walk way runs the entire length from the beautiful and recently updated harbour to the next village of Nuevo Horizonte or the other way heading towards Las Salinas.

A trip on the local catamaran is a must. This takes you on a journey to the small fishing village of Pozo Negro. Food and drinks are included.

Trike tours, buggy tours and quad tours are also available. Each tour will show you the Interior of the island and take you to places you would not normally see. Horse excursions are also available inland. Regular fishing trips run from the harbour and further information can be found in the town.
