|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This apartment overlooks the sensational Jandia beach which has fine golden sand and extends for 14 kilometers. Most of the beach is clothes optional. Jandia is in the relatively unspoiled south of Fuerteventura. The private balcony which is south facing gets and has great views of the spectacular evening sunsets. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants close to the apartment with 2 small supermarkets within 150 meters. Fuerteventura is a duty free island. There are 24 hr medical facilities and a dentist close by. Being close to the Sahara desert the summers are hot and the winters warm with little rain, thus there is an all year round holiday season.
We are a fun loving Cornish couple who fell in love with this part of Fuerteventura. Jandia reminds us of Cornwall as it was 30 years ago
Colin Bazley purchased this apartment in 2009
In the best location to enjoy the beach and active, yet quiet nightlife of Jandia which is by far the best resort in the whole of the Canaries
the weather and the wonderful food
Lovely self contained one bedroom apartment, that is not in a holiday complex.
The apartment balcony over looks the beautiful beach
When we arrived ,we were met by the excellent hoste and owner Colin.
Colin showed us around the flat and explained how certain things worked.Very clean and well maintained
Well stocked bathroom with shower gel, soap, shampoo and conditioner.
Excellent power shower, there is also a washing Machine with washing powder and conditioner.
The Kitchen has all the appliances you can think of, the fridge was stocked with milk , ham and cheese.
There was also bread tea/coffee, oils sugar ,salt etc.
The flat is a home from home with everything you could possibly need.
The area has a good selection of shops ,restaurant’s and bars.Our favoutite restaurant was the the Bogeda tapas bar in morra jable which is about 20mins walk from the apartment(We ate there 3 times during our stay)
The beech’s offer all different types of water sports ,windsurfing/kitesurfing at club ion(15min car ride), diving etc.
I would definately recommend this apartment for couples or a family with one child or 2 toddlers.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we are going to rebook for next year.
Thank you Colin and keep up the good work

Very pleasant staying in Morro Jable.
The apartment is in very good conditions, and good position related to the sea and to other relevant turistic activities in the nearby.
Thank to Colin, which has been a very good guest.
If you're looking to look after your health, walking in the sunshine, exfoliating in the African sands, enjoying the clear blue sea and feeling the saltwater on your skin while basking on the sun drenched beaches then this is for you.
Lots of walking, lovely people and this apartment makes you feel part of the community. Every morning the locals smile with a greeting of Hola...
If you want discos,mindless organised activities then this might not be for you. I personally like to holiday with the locals and not in some hotel that feels like a grazing field for tourists.
Colin and Sam are hospitable and we could not wish for anything else on our stay. Everything was ready for the beach (tents, wind breaker, towels etc).
Thanks for a wonderful time Colin and Sam you're a wonderful host and thanks for your welcoming hospitality. :-)
Colin was in touch as soon as we booked with mobile number, and again just before we travelled to arrange a place/time for meeting up.
Initial impressions as we approached the building weren't brilliant as it is an ex hotel with no real welcoming frontage, however the apartment was just as we expected from the photos. It is in the building behind the front part of the old hotel and accessed using the lifts to the 7th floor and then a walk up a gently ramp to the ground floor of the 2nd building. What needs to be remembered is that virtually all hotels/apartments in Morro Jable are perched on cliffs so there are always steps to negotiate, but not here. The apartment was bright and well equipped, the bed comfortable (for us anyway). Colin provides not just a "welcome pack" of necessities but enough for the first 2 days - tea,coffee,milk,soap,shampoo we travel with small amounts of all that but we needed in this case, there was even a couple of beers and white & red wine. The bathroom has a fantastic shower and includes a washing machine (washing liquid provided), so again no need to lug great amounts of clothing. The kitchen area has a good sized fridge, hob and oven and plenty of storage. We only ate in three nights out of twelve but if staying longer the kitchen is perfectly suitable for preparing any meal.
The balcony gets the sun in the morning through to about one o'clock so perfect for alfresco breakfast. There isn't an uninterrupted view of the beach as although you can see over the roof of the building in front, part of that building obstructs the view of the base of the light house, but more than enough of the beach is in sight to see what is going on. Being in the second building behind means there isn't a great deal of noise from the road but it must be appreciated that the apartments are a mix of holiday lets and homes and so there is the usual noise from people leaving for work in the morning.
There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance but it should be appreciated that 80% of the visitors are German and the restaurants go dead after about 9:30 pm, all have English language menus - just ask.
The very friendly and helpful Colin and his wife own two holiday apartments and live in a third, all are of a similar size and as he is only a couple of doors away easy to contact in event of a problem.
We haven't decided yet whether to have a repeat holiday in Fuerteventura but if we do we would certainly book here again.
The apartment is nice with view to the beautiful beach and the lighthouse. One of the very positive things of the apartment is that it has all the necessary to live (towels, champoo, gel, olive oil, vinegar, wine ...). The owner is very nice and took care of our requests very quickly. Perhaps one important aspect that should be improved or change is the bed (which is small for two people and the mattress of very poor quality) to make the stay more comfortable.

Das Apartment ist liebevoll eingerichtet und voll ausgestattet, sogar Badetücher und Strandequipement sind vorhanden. Der Vermieter hatte den Kühlschrank bereits mit Getränken ausgestattet (Wasser, Milch, Saft, Bier und Sekt) und auch Zucker, Gewürze und Essig und Öl bereit gestellt. Das Apartment befindet sich in Top Lage mitten im Tourismusgebiet von Morro Jable, in Strandnähe. Allerdings ist es in einem alten großen Gebäudekomplex gelegen. Man blickt daher nicht nur auf das Meer und den Leuchtturm sodern auch auf die Balkone der anderen Haubewohner. Die Strandpromenade mit Restaurants und Bars ist in ca. 20 Min gut zu Fuß erreichbar.
