“Simply the best!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

This villa has everything! Located on a gentle rise close to the village of Lajares, which has several friendly bars, restaurants..a large supermarket...and of course surf shops! First impression is cool, spacious and very tasteful. The huge well equipped dining kitchen opens onto a terrace with a stunning view over the pool towards the distant surf. This gets sun virtually all day and the big table and bbq make this a great lunch and evening dining place. A second terrace gets the morning sun and has swinging seats and bean bags for the kids. The incredibly warm pool is surrounded by a very well maintained cactus garden and there are not one but two soft astroturf lawns, one being a mini sports field. The main bedrooms are spacious with super kingsize comfy beds and ensuite bathrooms. The kids bunk room looks fun! Water pressure is great too! The barn like living room has large sofas and a huge TV and satellite connection with some UK channels. Although we did not come with kids, the villa is well equipped with toys, games, play station etc. and has been planned with child safety in mind, especially the pool area. Bikes and boards are available to use by prior request. So all in all there is everything here for a great holiday and you can't beat Fuertaventura for its sunshine record!

Have just returned from a week in lajares staying in the wonderful Villa Sonrisa. What a fantastic villa - so well appointed. Every need is taken care of. Spacious, luxurious and just fabulous.

“Fantastic week and fantastic villa”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in October 2012

We booked this villa for a late get away with our three year old daughter as we were all in need of some sun, waves and some much needed family time together. Before we even got to Fuertevenura the team were fantastic providing us with all the information we needed to arrange our holiday - all the things we needed to know about car hire, directions, arrival details and everything required to enjoy a hassle free week with kids was provided by the helpful and efficient team.

Having first been to Fuerte in 1987 there's been a lot of development on the island but the villa is set in a very local non touristy location, very sleepy and relaxed with a really village feel (great bakery, coffee shops and a couple of good local bars where everyone was friendly and welcoming).

The villa is fantastic, very safe and secure for kids and very well fitted to a high standard and finish. It's been beautifully furnished for adults and kids alike and even on the odd rainy afternoon the AV system was greatly appreciated.

If you like cooking the kitchen is a fantastic central focus and the adjoining west facing terrace is great for alfresco dining with a handy gas BBQ to grill local fish and watch the sunsets.

All the rooms are safe and secure and have been furnished and decorated with a cool and very comfortable vibe.

Our daughter had a great time indoors as the owners have a young family and the kids room was fun, with plenty of quality toys and books to share.

We spent most of the time outdoors playing in the safe and secure garden and pool area, the AstroTurf grass is a brilliant idea and there are lots of outdoor games provided - it's also ideal for rigging up sails etc and kind on the feet for the little ones.

The team on hand to help with any queries during our stay we brilliant and we great for local recommendations to eat, food shop and get directions to beaches and bike trails...

A great holiday and a great villa - especially if you have kids.

We re-booked as soon as we got back - excellent.

“Amazing family hangout in Lajares”
Reviewed 17 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

What a fabulous holiday at a truly superb villa!
We love Fuerteventura with it's beautiful beaches at El Cotillo, great food and the laid back lifestyle but staying at Villa Sonrisa just made it all the more perfect!
Everything about this place has been so well thought out particularly for families with children. Our boys loved the pool, playing mini golf, tennis and the cupboard full of Lego....we loved having BBQ's and watching the sunset from the terrace with a glass of wine!
Couldn't ask for a better holiday villa, we didn't want to leave and will definitely be going back!!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 17 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We found Villa Sonrisa by chance as we searched online for a destination suitable for our family with four small children. We are so glad we found it. We had been searching for something that suited our families needs for nearly 6 weeks. Elle was brilliant and booking was so easy and she came back quickly with answers to all our questions. When we landed we hoped that Villa Sonrisa would meet our expectations. It exceeded them. The house was exactly like it was in the pictures, There was no trick photography.
We had a really relaxed stay, we got up late, had breakfast, swam in the pool. The kids would play the computer games, watch tv and play lego. In the Afternoon we would do an activity, go to a beach. The beaches are amazing. I had never been to the Canary Islands before and was not sure what to expect, they have some amazing beaches.
The town is small but it is easy to get around and get to the bigger places.
We had a really really fantastic time in Villa Sonrisa, and the children are already asking to go back in July!! Fingers crossed .

“Fantastic villa and beautiful peaceful location! Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

person found this review helpful

We have recently returned from a fantastic holiday at Villa Sonrisa. The villa is first class super comfy beds, hot powerful showers, peaceful location away from hustle and bustle of resorts but all you need in the village and a short drive from the bars and nightlife of bigger resorts, extremely child friendly. We had extra heating in the pool and it was pure luxury like swimming in a big bath! I could go on and on.........
All in all a beautiful place somewhere we will return too for sure in fact it's the only holiday we have been on that we would return tomorrow no question!
I have already recommended it to friends as its a perfect family villa in a great location.
Amazing, amazing, amazing the perfect villa and holiday for us anyway ( family of 4 with two under 5)
A big thank you to the owners for letting us use their beautiful villa:-)

The villa is perfect for a group of people looking for a private place, not in a huge holiday center. You really have the feeling that you are having your own experience, in a laid-back town without the flashy, big hotels, and with a tremendous view. The BBQ and the sports field make it perfect not only for little children, but also for people that feel young enough to enjoy the sports field :)

Don't hesitate, just book the house and you'll have a perfect holiday!
