This beautiful, refurbished (completed February 2016), individual five bed-roomed self catering villa with heated swimming pool and hot tub is in a quiet part of Lajares. Whilst private it is not isolated, nor on an estate, nor overlooked — perfect for the quiet life or for those who prefer not to wear clothes. It has its own parking within the grounds (close to the front door, flood lit at night), all surrounded by small mature pine trees. If you look at the reviews you will see that this self catering villa is perfect for multi-generation families or up to five couples looking for very high standard accommodation.
The house is a gentle ten minute walk from the bars, restaurants and shops of Lajares. It is just a few minutes’ drive from superb beaches to the west, north and east and also the resort of Corralejo.
The price quoted includes a weekly clean; the pool heated to 27.5c; the hot tub heated to 37c; pool towels and 'up to' 20 Mbps internet connection (although this cannot be guaranteed).
We do NOT charge extra for school holidays, the rate remains the same all year around. However occasionally we do offer a special couples only rate.
BEDROOMS and BATHROOMS
All the bedrooms have been refurbished and decorated in February 2016 — including new high quality beds, bedding and bedside lights. The bathrooms have all been completely refurbished with new tiles, furniture, mirrors and lighting; the windows are fitted with fly screens..
The main house has a twin and double bedroom on the ground floor with a shared bathroom and over-bath shower. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with en suite, walk-in shower and wonderful views.
The two separate pool bedrooms on the ground floor (a double and a twin) are both en-suite with walk-in showers — both have double doors (with fly screens) overlooking the pool. PLEASE NOTE: These two bedrooms are not part of the main house, and accessed directly from the pool deck, so may not be suitable for children on their own.
All double beds are European King-sized (160cms x 200cms). The single beds are 90cms x 200cms). All beds have high quality mattresses. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and opening windows with fly screens.
KITCHEN and UTILITY ROOM The kitchen and utility room are both brand new at February 2016 — and well-equipped with plenty of new crockery, cutlery and glasses. Includes everything you should need including the (twin) kitchen sink — there is an electric induction hob (with extractor fan), fan oven with grill, microwave, fridge-freezer, toaster, coffee machine, electric kettle, juicer, blender and two (yes two!) full size dishwashers. We have provided plenty of utensils and pans so you can cook for ten people. Off the kitchen is a small utility room with 8Kgs washing machine and a wine / drinks refrigerator.
LIVING AREAS The central open plan communal area has a dining table for up to 10 people — with views through bi-fold doors over the pool deck and surrounding hills. The separate lounge has four leather sofas, a wood burner (which you won’t need very often), ceiling fan, a large flat screen television (with the main English channels some in HD), DVD/BluRay player (and selection of DVDs) and IPTV (channels subject to variable internet connection).
OUTSIDE The heated pool (27.5C) is 8m x 4m with built in steps and handrail. Depth varies from 0.8m to 1.6m. The pool heater has just been upgraded. The pool uses the new salt-type cleansing system, this is not chlorine-free, but the reduction of irritating chloramines versus traditional chlorinating methods and the 'softening' effect of electrolysis reducing dissolved alkali minerals in the water are perceived as major benefits. For some people that have sensitivities to chlorine, these systems certainly can reduce eye stinging and other unwanted effects.
The separate hot tub is kept at about 37C, perfect for relaxing after a hard days relaxing. It seats five people, or six if you really know each other!
There are eight sunbeds, two outside tables and ten chairs. The main table easily seats eight and ten at a push for al fresco dining.
There is a full size charcoal barbecue with all the tools (but please supply your own charcoal. PLEASE NOTE: Cleaning the barbecue and disposing of ash is your responsibility).
Garden lighting creates a wonderful effect at night time. There are two levels of outside lighting depending upon what you want to do. The outside lights are additionally controlled by remote key fobs — which means if you return after dark you can switch on the lights.
All lights are LED, saving energy. Roof mounted solar panels heat the hot water — with electrical back-up for when not up to temperature.
Beautiful Secluded Villa
By Helen D. on 14-Mar-2019
This is my fifth visit to this stunning villa. No expense has been spared to make this a truly luxurious stay, with many little touches to enhance your comfort and add to your holiday. It’s spotlessly clean, spacious and very private yet within walking distance of the lovely little village of Lajares. I will definitely be back!
Look forward to welcoming you back
A Fabulous Luxurious Holiday Villa
By Scottish Highlands on 21-Feb-2019
Another immensely satisfying stay at Rosa de Laguna – our third holiday there in three years – a total of eleven weeks in all. The Villa Rental is very generously appointed and has a range of facilities one would expect to find in a quality residential property, rather than holiday accommodation - two dishwashers, a 20 bottle wine cooler, quality china and cutlery, a sophisticated satellite TV, video and surround-sound system, DVD library, a sideboard full of family and children’s games, USB charging points in all rooms including the five bedrooms –the list is endless!
The bedrooms are well-appointed with fly-screens on all windows, large wardrobes with numerous coat hangers, bedside tables, hairdryers, illuminated full length mirrors and quiet ceiling fans. The spacious ensuite bathrooms are a delight with copious amounts of hot water for baths and showers.
We have occupied the five bedroom Villa Rental for just the two of us for most of our stays, but more recently our family joined us and the seven of us, especially the children enjoyed, the all-year-round heated swimming pool and hot tub – a major attraction for young children!
The property and pool/hot tub is expertly maintained by Barney and staff who are all charming, helpful and very knowledgeable about the island and the local attractions.
Lajares is an ideal centre for exploring the north of Fuerteventura and the undeveloped hinterland and fascinating volcanic landscapes. The numerous local beaches comprise beautiful lagoons of white sand and crystal clear water and are ideal for scuba diving and all types of surfing including kite-surfing.
We can thoroughly recommend Rosa de Laguna and will definitely be visiting again before long. Thank you, Richard and Sue.
Fabulous Property; Extremely Well Equipped
By David H. on 16-Dec-2018
We enjoyed a family reunion vacation here, with ten of us. The house has an exceptionally well stocked kitchen, with ample crockery, glasses and cutlery. Two dishwashers makes clearing up very easy! Beds are very comfortable and each bedroom is equipped with fly screens at the windows and ceiling fans. The pool is lovely - heated and without harsh chemicals. The hot tub also is fab. There’s a TV and DVD library. We didn’t really use it, but it looked comprehensive. Games and puzzles also available. Plenty of seating for all the family, both inside and out. Parking space for 4 cars easily. It’s really ideal for larger family groups. Lajares is a nice little town and it’s easy to get to El Cotillo for beaches, or Coralejo. There’s a nice walk up to the volcano nearby, which is well worth doing. Remember to take some food for the friendly chipmunks at the top! A car is necessary, but easy to organise. Cicar are very good value and probably the easiest car hire I’ve ever done. We had a small electrical issue whilst we were there, and the local manager Paul sorted it out very quickly. Nothing was too much trouble. These things happen so it’s good to know that the property is well managed. We really enjoyed our week. No property is ever perfect, but this one gets closer than most. 5 stars all the way, and thoroughly recommended.
Thank you so much. Delighted you enjoyed.
Perfect November Retreat
By Alan K. on 15-Dec-2018
This property is one of the best equipped, designed and situated I've stayed at. From the modern kitchen to the cinema surround tv room, the outdoor pool to the hot tub it simply swallowed up the 6 of us staying there and gave great communal living aswell as our own space. I loved opening the big old doors every morning and bringing indoors outdoors. The town is only a couple of minutes walk away with many different shops and restaurants, alternatively corralejo is a 15 to 20 minute drive. I'd recommend bar return in lajares, best pizza ever!
How kind, thank you!
Secluded Villa Not Close To The Coast
By John Pearson on 13-Dec-2018
Our main gripes about villas we have hired previously have been, pools that are cold and virtually luke warm water for showers. This Villa Rental had a lovely warm pool as advertised and ample hot water, for baths or showers. Something you expect but rarely get. We really enjoyed our time at this home from home, lovingly cared for villa. We were set a task from the owners to see if there was anything else they could add to make their guests more comfortable. We tried really hard, but could not find anything at all. The kitchen is the best equipped one we have stayed at and the house has everything including heaters for cold nights and blankets for the settees. We will definitely be returning, but it is quite difficult to book as the Villa Rental is so popular. They do have another Villa Rental called Allegre which is of the same standard but slightly smaller. The Villa Rental owners are very accommodating and do everything possible to make your stay a happy one. i don not think you will be disappointed if you stay here.
Fab Holiday In An Amazing Villa!
By Jennie M. on 23-Nov-2018
We stayed in Lajares last year in the beautiful Villa Rental Alegre (www.VillaAlegre.villas also here on SImply Owners) but having raved so much about our holiday upon our return, we had more family members that wanted to join us this year! Fortunately we found that the owners of Alegre had an even bigger Villa Rental Rosa just down the road. It was stunning!
The furnishings were of the same high standard and it was better equipped than my house at home, there were even 2 dishwashers! The outdoor pool was just lovely and we enjoyed the hot tub every evening. We had lovely weather and spent most of our day time at the dunes and in the sea at Corellejo, the kite festival was on while we were there and that was fab.
We split our evening meals between BBQs next to the pool and eating out in Lajares, Corellejo and El Cottilo. We had a wonderful time and may have even more people for next year, I think we’ll have to book out both villas!
How very kind, thank you!
An Amazing Luxury Villa In A Fabulous Location
By Catherine P. on 14-Aug-2018
Wonderful holiday in Lajares in a fabulous location and setting. This Villa Rental is really amazing! It is fully kitted out with all mod cons and is beautifully decorated. There is a lovely large pool and luxurious hot tub, which you think you may not use in the heat but it's shaded and really nice to use in the evening. There is a big kitchen and open dining area, perfect for chatting while you barbeque. To add to that there are two dishwashers, which makes clearing away super easy. There were 8 of us but the Villa Rental is definately big enough to accomodate 10 people comfortably. The supermarket about a 10 min walk away in the town, which has some restaurants and bars, all reasonably priced. There are loads of great beaches, El Cotillo (great for body boarding) and Corelejo ( lovely sandy beach with restaurants and safe area for swimming for kids) are only short taxi ride approx 20 euro from villa. Alternatively, you can catch a bus to Corelejo for about 2 euro per person. I would recommend hiring a car (cicar the cheapest) and seeing the sand dunes and sites. There is a water park in Corelejo, which was very good. Life in Fuetaventura is very chilled... this was one of the best holidays ever, we would totally recommend.
By Teresa E on 07-Aug-2018
Everything was as described. A wonderful stay with all the family, in a lovely well positioned location on the island. We had lots of great days out driving to different parts of the island. The holiday home was well stocked with essentials for comfort and cooking. The pool was a big hit with all the family and a welcome relief from the daytime sun. The pool was well maintained along with the jacuzzi and the built in barbecue was a bonus. The driveway can be difficult to manuvre at first but you soon get use to it, we reversed in. Shops and restaurants are not far away, some of the restaurants are nice and have live music. The reason for the four star is due to no air conditioning, however there are fans in the bedrooms but we still found the bedrooms warm especially by the pool.
Thank you for your review. To dock a star is a little harsh as everything was as described (if not better)! Please consider... All the rooms have (quiet) ceiling fans and fully opening doors / windows equipped with mosquito / fly screens, so you can sleep with the windows open in fresh air. We do not offer air-conditioning. Indeed, air-conditioning is very rare in Fuerteventura due to general lack of power and the cost needed to run it (this ignores the ecological issues). The nights are not nearly as hot as the mainland and are generally a great sleeping temperature. Vis-a-vis reversing down the drive way, this is a fine example of ignoring the joining instructions sent a few weeks before arrival (despite being heavily recommended) and also not consulting the house book located on the side table! There is a massive turning circle at the rear of the house through the back gate (where you can also kick a ball around and park dozens of cars!). The parking area within the boundary of the house easily holds six cars too. There is no need to reverse down the drive!

Great Villa And Location

We would recommend Richard's well equipped and comfortable villa. The pool and hot tub provided great relaxation. Several good restaurants within 15 minute walk.
How kind, thank you!
Beautiful Villa In A Fabulous Location
By Vicky S. on 22-Mar-2018
We arrived at Rosa De Laguna Villa Rental on Saturday 17th March to beautiful sunshine and leaving the snow behind in the UK. We rented a car from the airport and the drive from the airport to the Villa Rental was very pleasant and easy. The location of the Villa Rental is excellent with great views of the volcanos and is very private. It's very peaceful and quiet as you are away from road and there is not many cars on the road. Parking at the Villa Rental is very good as it has a large area at the back where you can park numerous cars. A short walking distance of 10 minutes to the local town which has a number of very nice cafe's, a bakery, restaurants, surf and craft shops and a supermarket which is very handy for essentials. The Villa Rental is very spacious and clean and has everything you need. Well equipped and beautiful decor. There are two dishwashers which is very good. Comfy sun loungers to relax when the sun is shining and nice to cool off in the pool when it gets hot. Big rooms with super comfy beds, a big open kitchen with a utility room and a large open dining area with an outdoor eating area. The walk in showers in the bedrooms were fabulous with a rain shower head and beautiful soft clean water unlike we have in the UK. The pool is beautiful and heated and the hot tub was always a must in the evening. USB sockets in all the bedrooms which is a bonus. We drove to Corralejo to see the sand dunes and the beaches, a car is essential to get there as it's about a 15 minute drive but very easy to get there. There are also buses that run through the town that run about every 30 minutes. I was recommended by a family friend about a beauty salon nearby called Estetina and the lady offers lots of different treatments for a great price. www.estetina.es Beautiful holiday at a one of a kind villa. We would love to return and will recommend to friends and family for sure! Thank you Sue and Richard.
Delighted you enjoyed. Thank you. See you here again soon. R

The Best Appointed Property We Have Ever Stayed In
By Anonymous on 02-Mar-2018
This is, without doubt, the best appointed property we have stayed in during the last ten years of visiting Fuerteventura! Rosa de Laguna has been equipped with the best of fittings - kitchen, bath/shower rooms, bedrooms and living accommodation. The quality of the whole accommodation is exemplified by the 18 pages of very useful information about the property. Without doubt, the heated swimming pool and hot tub is an invaluable attraction, especially in the cooler months of winter! The property is maintained to a very high standard, in keeping with the quality of the accommodation, and Paul, the Manager, is very knowledgeable and helpful. Lajares in an excellent centre for visiting the whole island and there is a wealth of local activities to enjoy and explore the island. The local beaches are a delight for families and the many local restaurants offer a wide range of menus to satisfy all tastes. We stayed at Rosa de Laguna for four weeks in 2017, three weeks this years and we have already booked for four weeks in 2018. What better recommendation can there be?
How very kind, thank you. Delighted you enjoyed the house and the village. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Kind ones Richard
A Hidden Gem
By John M on 08-Feb-2018
I returned for a second time to Rosa de Laguna at the end of 2017 and echo other reviews by saying that it is without doubt one of the best villas it has been my good fortune to discover after taking holidays in a number of countries over the last 40 years or more. The owners have gone to extraordinary lengths to anticipate their guests’ every need; they have remodelled it from top to bottom so that now it must surely be one of the finest villas of this size on the island. From its ultra-modern kitchen complete with two dishwashers to super comfy beds, brand new furniture throughout, a big screen TV that carries the major UK channels, fast Wi-Fi (by local standards!), USB sockets everywhere, a pool heated to perfection not to mention the hot tub, it seems that nothing has been overlooked. The owners provide excellent advance information for visitors and the kitchen has a bulletin board full of restaurant recommendations and local information. Lajares is only a 30 minute drive from the airport and the village has everything that the holidaymaker needs such as a small supermarket, a bakery, a number of craft shops and a good choice of restaurants all of which are within walking distance, although a car is really essential for getting around the island and into Corralejo which is the nearest town (about a 15 minute drive). Much the same time in the car will get you to some great golden sandy beaches as well. I am reluctant to sing the praises too much as I fear that this hidden gem will become far too popular. I notice from the very well-constructed website that bookings extend well into 2019 so my advice would be to book early to avoid disappointment! John M.
Thank you. We now have several guests who return time and again! You are always welcome.
Don't Miss The Opportunity To Stay Here!
By Paul W. on 22-Jan-2018
We stayed at Villa Rental Rosa de Laguna in December 2017 and found it to be a wonderful location; indeed the best thus far after a few stays in Lajares. The Villa Rental is within a 10 min walk from the village of Lajares which has some great cafes, bakeries & bars along with some interesting shops and a supermarket which pretty much has everything you need. Once behind the entrance gates to the Villa Rental you feel like you are in a little world of your own where every bit of the experience adds to it being a peaceful haven with some fantastic views. The Villa Rental is very well equipped, in fact you are unlikely to want for anything as the owners have already thought about it. Barely an evening passed without a session in the hot tub, which was so relaxing whilst looking up at the stars, and the heated pool is fantastic - you will not feel cold in this one in the winter months! The bathrooms are very well finished and the mattresses are unlike most you find in rental villas in that they are very comfortable and not hard. If you want to relax and watch a movie or two then the TV along with surround sound system will not disappoint. All in all I would say if you have a chance to stay here then don't miss out on the opportunity.
Holidays are special! Delighted you had a special time here. Thank you for your kind words.

This Villa Rental exceeded all our expectations! It is a fabulous villa, very spacious with a beautifully decorated interior. There is a wonderful hot tub and indoor swimming pool which is great for swimming out of the wind at this time of year. The Villa Rental was really clean and was the best equipped Villa Rental we've ever stayed in. A huge bonus was the super comfortable beds! If you're considering staying in this villa, it's by far the best one we've stayed in and definitely worth booking up. We would love to return!
We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have always enjoyed Villa Rental holidays too, but have never found one with comfortable beds, so when equipping both our villas we have supplied high quality beds. Villa Rental Alegre has 3 large double bedrooms, Villa Rental rosa DeLaguna has 5 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. They are 5 mins walk apart. If you ever want to return with friend. Both are equipped to the same high standard.
By Anne B on 27-Nov-2017
We stayed here for two weeks to celebrate my 60th Birthday, it easily accommodated 8 people. (We had 4 couples, so each had their own bathroom). Very warm pool and wonderful hot tub. Very good external lighting. Bedrooms had very comfortable beds and bathrooms were modern and clean. Lounge, dining room, and kitchen were of excellent size and in open plan layout which worked well for the large group. Bi-folding doors out to terrace area are a great feature. Kitchen had everything that you would need. Very fast and helpful email communication from Richard and Sue at all times We all had a wonderful time here and did not want to leave.
Many thanks Anne. The house was designed for ten people so eight fits well. Look forward to welcoming you back.
Everything You Could Want For A Holiday In The Sun
By Alan K. on 24-Nov-2017
This was our first holiday to Fuerteventura, we loved it so much we've already booked for next year! It was so nice to leave the rain and cold of the UK and wake up to sun and warmth every day of our stay. The Villa Rental was an easy drive from the airport following the instructions provided by the owners in their info pack. The Villa Rental itself is very well presented and equipped with everything you could ever need or want. The bedrooms are large and the living room is very comfortable, the use of a washing machine and dishwasher was very welcome and the fridge and freezer are huge! As I like to get up and have an early swim in the mornings, I really appreciated the indoor pool as it can be a little chilly early in the morning at this time of year, however, by midday we opened up the whole front of the building and were able to swim and play for hours without getting burnt! The local town of Lajares was a short walk away and we walked into it every day, I even got a tattoo done by one of the traditional tribal tattoo artists on the last but one day, the best souvenir I've ever had! Lajares has a great supermarket, lots of nice places to eat, craft fairs, interesting small shops and everyone is very friendly. I would recommend this Villa Rental and location to anyone looking for a home from home, good food, lovely beaches and warm sunny weather.
Yes, it's great to be able to spent as much time as you like in the pool without getting burnt. Fuerteventura is a great place to totally relax. Prior to purchasing the villa's we stayed in various Villa Rental across the Island, but Lajares was our top favourite. I'm glad you liked the island and have decided to return next year. We have many regular customer- welcome to the club! Sue Cobourne.
By Jennie M. on 21-Nov-2017
We hired a car with Cicar from the airport and I would highly recommend this company, great service at a good price. It was an easy, straight forward drive to Villa Rental Alegre in Lajares which we found really easily using the directions provided in the information pack by the owners about 4 weeks before we travelled. The pack contained loads of information including directions, instructions on how to get into the villa, where to eat out, basically everything I needed to know before I even left the UK, which is fab for a panicer like me. This Villa Rental is just lovely, large bedrooms, beds and bathrooms. I'm a bath person but the rain shower was so lovely that I used that every day, you just need to wait a little for the water to get to temperature and then you get a super hot shower with plenty of power. It was also lovely to sit in the hot tub of an evening with my pinacolada. I took one of the Sun beds down to the small garden area off the pool area and read my book every day, it's just lovely down there surrounded by plants. Having the use of a washing machine meant that we got away with just carry on luggage and it was great to have essentials such as tea and coffee, etc already there. The people before us had left quite a lot of stuff for us to use including food and drink items and toiletries, so we saved quite a bit of money. We were able to walk into the village daily where there was a supermarket and plenty of shops. We ate out quite a few nights and had the best pizza ever at the Bar Return and lovely crepes at one of the cafes. My biggest piece of advice is to take plenty of cash or have the ability to take cash out, there are card machines in Lajares village. Many places on the island do not have the facility to accept cards and will only take cash which meant we missed out on buying a few gifts but do hire a car and explore the island and the lovely beaches. You can't wear flip flops to drive, there must be a support strap around the back of your ankles and you carry your driving licence and passport at all times when driving. We are already booked to go back to this Villa Rental next year, we love it!
I am really glad you used the lower garden, it's beautiful and not many guests use it. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Sue Cobourne.
Three Generation Vacation
By Keith L on 21-Aug-2017
Arrival was uncomplicated with everything ready for us. The Villa Rental was as expected, having stayed there before but on that occasion it was only adults. This time it was grandparents, parents and 4 yr old and 2 yr old grandchildren. The facilities proved more than adequate to cater for the needs of the three age groups and the pool and hot tub worked overtime. The open nature of the Villa Rental meant that care had to be exercised in the pool area, in respect of the two small children but that same open nature made it easy to keep tabs on them. The accommodation is exactly as described so no further detail is needed. The location of the property means that the local restaurants, coffee shops and hostelries in the village of Lajares are within easy walking distance, as are the local bakeries. The supermarket (medium size but adequate for all everyday purposes) is also within walking distance but a vehicle would be needed to carry back anything more than a two-carrier bag shop. Similarly, a hire car would give easy access to Corralejo and El Cotillo, the nearest 'soft' beaches about 10 minutes drive west or east. The local bus service also covers these destinations. The island cycle path can also be accessed only a short distance from the villa. Dining was a mix of local restaurants, occasional meals in and BBQ's. Kitchen facilities were comprehensive, as was the entertainment system/TV. Bottom line...... would we stay there again? Yes, please. .
Wonderful Week In The Sun.
By Anonymous on 09-Jul-2017
Having been to a number of properties in Fuerteventura, over the past few years, this has been the best so far. The house is so perfectly set up, with everything our family group, ranging from 7 to 63 years of age would desire, from the USB points all over for all our devices,well appointed and tastefully decorated rooms and the excellent pool, which was cleaned by Paul every couple of days. Car hire is definately recommended, but restaurants cafe's, bars and shops are within easy walking distance. Well done Richard and Sue.
By Barbara H on 24-Apr-2017
We were a group of 9 (incl. 9 child) and stayed for a week. The Villa Rental is just perfect, providing every comfort you need for a family holiday and much more!! Richard our host and his team in Lajares, are just great, very kind and very helpful in every regard. We would love to come back to this amazing place.
Wonderful Villa And Facilities
By Heidi Hutchins on 01-Mar-2017
We had an amazing week in February at the villa. 2 families and 3 children. The pool was a lovely warm temperature so the kids could play in there all day without getting cold. The pool and patio area was sheltered so the infamous winds were not an issue so this is really a super Villa Rental for all seasons. The hot tub was a lovely touch and also well used. We are all foodies and enjoy cooking and this Villa Rental had all the amenities to enable us to BBQ or use the kitchen for all our meals. A second dishwasher meant that we were able to load up both after an evening meal without having to wait. If I'm being super picky another frying pan and a paella pan would have been nice but we managed! Plenty of sunbeds, towels and pool toys so that kept the kids entertained. Location is perfect for peace and quiet and is only a ten minute walk to town for bread or the restaurants. So nice in fact we have come home and immediately requested the Villa Rental for the same time next year!
By Maxine H on 27-Jan-2017
A lovely family Villa Rental in a peaceful location. Our children loved the pool and hot tub! Well equipped kitchen for eating in, BBQ was great and local restaurants were also lovely. (722 was a 2 minute walk away!). Richard was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. Would love to return!
Absolutely 1st Class Villa
By Michael G on 27-Nov-2016
Party of 8 lots of room for everyone not on top of each other. pool and hot tub were fabulous ,the whole Villa Rental was immaculate.staying in for a meal was made easy as kitchen had everything to make your experience a pleasure; local village had everything you need wonderful restaurant on doorstep (7 22) used the local bus and taxis to get around very cheap and reliable; would definitely recommend we all had a great time thank you Richard and sue
By Kevin S on 31-Jul-2016
It is hard to fault this Villa Rental (and we have stayed at many on the island) from any perspective. The Villa Rental has clearly had no expense spared and is equipped to an extremely high standard, located well off the beaten track but with local shops a few mins drive away. The kitchen is large and has everything you could need, with plenty of cutlery and crockery and together with the two dishwashers meant that washing up was not a frequent event! The bi-folding doors opening out onto the patio/outside dining area was perfect for the outdoor living whilst not being 'detached' from the villa. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well appointed and finished to a very high standard as well as being a good size. The entire layout of the Villa Rental allows peace and quiet whilst others do not have to be quiet and the dining area indoors is perfect for socialising with the rest of the party or guests. The swimming pool was a delight, the temperature was maintained to an ideal level throughout our entire stay (which we had to extend by an additional 4 days as we found that two weeks in this Villa Rental was just not enough!!!!). The pool was also non- chlorinated and was irresistible on an on-going basis, plenty of buoyancy, soft water and no stinging eyes even after constant underwater swimming - beautiful! The hot tub was a night time delight "champagne and stars" In short "nirvana". We have already booked for the same time next year!
A Truly Excellent Villa Supremely Comfortable And Perfectly Located
By Peter W on 28-Jul-2016
This Villa Rental provided the perfect place for our family a friend to relax this June. After a tense period of exams for our two sons (21 and 19 years) we all really appreciated everything the property had to offer. This is one of those places one is loathe to write a review for as you want to keep it as a secret, but it would certainly be unfair not to recommend something so special to others! The Villa Rental itself was beautifully clean and comfortable without being fussy. The beds and pillows were perfect, the showers all worked just as you would wish. There were ceiling fans in the rooms, which is much the best cooling system for the climate of the island. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped with everything you could possibly need including the luxury of two dishwashers. In other words we could not find anything that had not been provided for our comfort. There was a well located comfortable TV room and wifi connection laid which the boys really appreciated. Outside the terrace was perfect for those who like either the sun or shade. Excellent reading lights were provided in and out which was an important detail for the book worms on the holiday. We all enjoyed the pool and hot tub both of which were well looked after by the visiting agent. The Villa Rental was perfectly located in Lajares for peace and yet close enough to walk to restaurants. The local supermarket (Dino) was more than adequate for all our needs. Some of us wanted more exercise than others and found the walk up or around the old volcano behind a good local excursion. We would recommend parking at the foot of the trail to avoid the rather boring walk along the road. All in all we had a wonderful time and would love to go back.

We love Lajares and decided to spend May half term at this villa. There were three adults and two children so we used the main house and no need for the extra pool rooms. The Villa Rental has everything you need, even down to a blender to make your daily smoothie. It is well planned, we loved the light switches, and very comfortable. The pool was great, good temperature, which even tempted my non-swimmer mother-in-law. The hot tub was a very special treat for relaxing into the evening and watching the sun go down. The Villa Rental is well maintained and was exceptionally clean - we met the cleaners on the last day and enjoyed chatting to them too! Our favourite pizzeria (Cancela) was closed while we were there but we did enjoy pizza at rojo tomate and the goat stew at los pinchitos was delicious. It you speak Spanish, try the menu del dia at los pinchitos or order off menu - the place was full of locals/Spanish people, which is always a good sign. We travelled to el cotillo and corralejo, but because the Villa Rental was amazing we didn't venture to other places this time. We enjoyed tapas in el cotillo and corralejo. Our advice is to try the tapas places in the old part of corralejo. Well we've been back for less than 24 hours and are already planning our next trip.... Fantastic Villa Rental and highly recommended. Great for a special birthday celebration or a couple of families.
Five-star Private House
By Ian D on 08-Apr-2016
As a group of adults we had a wonderful week at this Villa Rental in early March. Think of it as a five-star hotel but with all the trimmings and comfort of a private house. The Villa Rental is situated in its own grounds on the outskirts of the village of Lajares, in the countryside, but not isolated. There are a number of shops, restaurants and bars within 15 minutes stroll and also a medium-sized supermarket which has everything you need. The local bakery sells the most amazing croissants and pastries, which we bought fresh every morning for breakfast. The Villa Rental has recently been completely renovated from top to toe by the owner, with the highest level of fixtures and fittings and attention to detail. Opening the front door you go into a large dining room, with a huge table which can easily seat 10 people. This room opens onto the patio and garden by way of a full width folding glass door; there are further tables and chairs outside with room for everyone to sit and eat and of course a full size brick built barbecue. There is also a good sized heated swimming pool, with sun loungers for everyone, and also a hot tub. On the other side of the dining room, the room opens onto a large kitchen with marble surfaces and all the gadgets that you would ever need. One of the interesting details that has gone into the house is the twin (yes two!) dishwashers! There is also a small utility room with a washing machine and, good from my point of view, a large drinks chiller cabinet. Off the dining room is a comfortable lounge which has a huge flat screen TV with cinema surround and satellite system, giving you local channels as well as several English stations including BBC, ITV and Channel 4. Three of the bedrooms have their own ensuite shower room, with wonderful power showers. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom between them, with a bath with shower over. Although the Villa Rental is in the countryside, it is close, by car, to El Cotillo, which was voted one of the 10 most beautiful coastlines in the world, according to the Daily Telegraph, and the fish restaurants are pretty good too! On the other side of the island there are huge sandy beaches, a magnet for surfers: sadly I'm too old for doing that! Also not far away is the port of Corralejo and if you want a day further afield you can catch a boat from here to Lanzarote. Alternatively, just sit at one of the bars by the port and watch the world go by. For a holiday the Villa Rental is fantastic.
