Overview

About the property

Bungalow in Corralejo, Fuerteventura - Quiet And Private Location With Only 3 Mins To Golden Beach, Restaurants, Bars And Shopping

Located in a quiet residential area of Corralejo, Palm Springs has 16 adjoining bungalows surrounding a large single depth swimming pool. We have tried to think of all the small items which makes a holiday home more comfortable. The bedroom is quiet and with the air conditioning very cool. The kitchen is divided from the lounge with a breakfast bar and stools. However dining on the terrace or just enjoying drinks 'al fresco' is more enjoyable with a private location, and a lovely flowering garden. We also offer wifi and English TV channels. Self catering is made easy with a mini-market/supermarket & the El Caompinario shopping centre 3 mins walk with bars & restaurants. The old town with the harbor & bars/restaurants is accessed by walking along a beach path or the avenida with wonderful views of beautiful gardens and the sea. We usually take a taxi back at only 3 euro. The bungalow is perfectly situated with the nearest beach 5 mins walk and flag beach 15 minutes walk. The bus stop is on the next block.

About Mrs Susan Davy-Day

We are a middle age couple who love the quiet solitude of Fuerteventura we like to walk and always include a pilgrim walk in our holiday. We are also lovers of the wonderful quiet beaches with miles of golden fine sand. Our home life is very different with an organic dairy farm in Yorkshire :). Our children are all grown up now with their own homes and careers. We are thrilled that 2016 brought us our first granddaughters (twins) !!!! :)) Then in 2017 a grandson - how blessed are we. We can not wait to introduce them to a bucket and spade on flag beach............... might need to wait a few years.....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jacquie August 2012



Dear Sue,

Thank you so much for the use of your lovely home. We were so impressed with it. It was so clean and very comfortable - and you have really put a lot of thought into it. Will recommend it.



July 2011 Yorkshire



The apartment is excellent, clean, comfortable and well furnished. The complex itself is well situated. It is quiet and secluded, but only a short stroll away from all Corralejo has to offer. It is the pool that really makes it a 1st class complex. We had a really enjoyable and relaxing holiday. The air-con was great for a comfortable nights sleep. We have already recommended it to family and friends and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when we are next in Fuerte.

We loved your bungalow, the peace and quiet and the privacy of the position it was in. If we go back next year we will defiantly be in touch. We really enjoyed ourselves so much and this was the best accommodation we have ever stay

The kitchen has all the utensils you will need if you prefer the occasional evening of self-catering and the pagoda coverd terrace is perfect for alfresco dining. Our terrace has a lovely flowering garden with jasmine and other flowering plants making the space a delight.

Clean and well equipped bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was as the owner described..clean and comfortable with a large comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. A very sunny private terrace where we had breakfast and lunch. Very good Wi-Fi and the main UK TV channels. Good sized pool which was a bit chilly at the end of Oct but still OK for a brisk swim.

Fantastic communication with Sue (the owner) She answers all queries promptly. When Monarch collapsed 4 weeks before we were due to fly Sue very kindly let us amend our dates slightly so we could find a suitable new flight.

Large Hiper Dino in Campanario centre a few minutes away also some restaurants and bars there. Lots of restaurants in Corralejo some along the busy Main Street others around the harbour with lovely views. Nice for a coffee or beer in the mornings. Lots do good breakfast offers too.

Its easy to walk to the smaller beaches also walkable to the Natural Park and the start of those great beaches...wow stunning.

All in all a great holiday with fantastic weather.

Thank you Sue.

Absolutely perfect with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Sue for allowing us to stay here. We think it was a fantastic place, very clean, spacious, air-con works really well, and the pool was lovely.

We loved it especially because it had so many little extras like a beach umbrella, bodyboard, tuppaware, that just make your stay so much more pleasant.

We loved our stay here, Susan was extremely helpful and we can't recommend this place highly enough!

Christmas in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful holiday in this lovely apartment with only a couple of dull days in four weeks - fabulous. We even had our photograph taken on the beach on Christmas morning. The property was spotless,as ever, and has everything you could need for a great holiday.

Recommended restaurants would have to include La Mamma, Asia Garden, and Pizzeria da Luca. For a great lunch with the locals try Las Compadres (next door to Rogues Gallery). The Rock Cafe was great fun for drinks on Christmas night.

Grateful thanks to Sue for letting us use her lovely home.

Special interest holidays:

There is plenty to do in Fuerteventra if you choose. Although many people visit for the relaxation and the wonderful golden beaches.

For the active guests choose from a huge selection of water sports, from snorkeling to kite surfing or set sail on a lazy boat trip or take the ferry to neighboring Lanzarote. On dry land you could play golf or even try your hand at quad-biking even jeep safaris.

Baku water park in Corralejo is home to the waterpark also mini golf, some fascinating marine life shows and regular craft markets.

Coast/Beach:

The beaches around Corralejo are the best you will find anywhere in Europe. 'Waikiki beach: popular golden sandy beach with bars and resturants nearby. Also 'town' beach: small sheltered beach by the old harbour town and 'Las Dunas' the sand dunes, 8km of protected national park stretching as far as the eye can see, a favourite for surfing/boogyboarding, kite surfing and wind surfing. Tuition available in town. El Cotillo takes aprx 15 minutes by car but is well worth it. Miles of lagoons.

Travel:

A car is not essential as everywhere is within easy walking distance. I can arrange a transfer from the airport or help with car hire details. Fuerteventura is a beautiful Island and well worth seeing, so you may consider hiring a car for the independence. Driving on the Island is very easy. The bus stops one block from Palm Springs to take you to town. Public transport is excellent on the island. You an also take a bus to El Cottillo for the beautiful beaches and lagoons.

Distances:

It takes 15 minutes to stroll (not speed walk) into Corralejo town, either along a beach path or the avenida. The nearest mini-market is 2 minutes walk, 3 mins walk to a large supermarket. Both have daily fresh bread and fruit/veg. The nearest restaurant is again 2 minutes walk. The port of Corralejo is about 30 minutes walk, from here you can take the ferry over to Lanarote for the day or to Lobos island.

Further Details:

There are many places of interest on the island you may wish to visit.

Betancuria is a breathtaking little village with a beautiful 15th centre 'cathedral' which is full of ancient charm. We visit a wonderful restaurant there, which I can give you details of. Isla de Lobos lies 3km off shore from Corralejo harbour. The island is an unspoilt haven of calm and simplicity. You could even take a glass bottom boat over, the island has wonderful snorkelling. La Oliva once the capital, houses an artisan workshop which produces beautfull embroidery.

Gran Tarajal is the second most populated picturesque town and its promenade along the dark volcanic sand is full of terraces, restaurants and bars.
