Stayed at Casa Olas for 10 days with my husband and 2 young boys. We all loved it. This was our first villa holiday (usually stay in big hotels) and wow this place has completely converted us.
The villa itself is beautiful. There are 3 large bedrooms and the master bedroom has a lovely sun terrace. The place was spotless clean and so comfortable with everything you could need. The outdoors area is stunning. We loved the pool, which was deep enough for my boys (8 & 5) to jump in. Hours of fun out there :-)
The placement is perfect too, lovely and peacefully quiet but only a short walk to el campanario. We did walk to the main strip a couple of times, it's about 20 mins (more with slow kids lol) so we would just jump a taxi for 3 eur. Taxi rank outside el campanario.
We are generally quite fussy when it comes to holidays (and maybe not always the easiest to please ) but this villa was perfect in every way. I would 100% reccomend it. The place is so well thought out.... things like lovely pool towels, inflatables and pool toys, games, books, dvds. The kitchen literally had everything you needed.
Thank you to Ian and Claire for a wonderful service and a perfect holiday xx
Location is great. Beaches were lovely and easy to get to. Flag beach is a great one to go to. Supermarket only about 5 min walk which is also surrounded by shops and small bars/coffee shops which we frequently used.
There is also a taxi rank there and taxis are cheap so if you don't fancy the walk to town, grab a taxi. Walk into town is about 15-20 mins but we found a slight short cut and nicer view by walking along the beach front.
Town is fairly busy with so many bars and restaurants to choose from.
A trip to Lobos island I think is also worth doing and doesn't cost too much.
There were 6 of us in this villa, 2 adults 4 kids between 12-17. Plenty of room for everyone to move around and the outside is very spacious. We loved it. Also the master bedroom has its own private balcony if you wish to have a little bit of private time and lovely to sit out in first thing in the morning before the kids get up. Would definitely stay again if I came back.
I loved this place from the very start and the one thing that struck me when we arrived was just how clean and tidy the Villa was, lovely touches like towels and beach towels in a basket just add to the welcoming feeling you get from this place. There's a dishwasher, a washing machine and a kitchen well equipped should you want to use it but why would you want to when there are such amazing restaurants on your doorstep! The Villa is in a quiet area about 10 minutes walk away from an amazing and charming little shopping mall where there's a supermarket as well as loads of random shops, a little market full of trinkets and some good eateries, there is a small shop a bit closer if you need to top up supplies quickly though.
The beach takes 15 mins to get to and it's a lovely place to be with everything you'll need to make sandcastles with the kids or have a jug of sangria or cerveza listening to the chill out DJ at Terra Bar or swimming with the fishes in the crystal clear warm waters all leading to the most amazing break.
However, it's easy to get distracted to the relaxed vibe of Corralejo so back to the Villa which is what I'm reviewing, it's pretty big and the 5 of us that stayed in it had plenty of room and the decor was amazing - I've not stayed in a place that has locally painted original oil paintings - they're beautiful and classy as is the whole villa, contemporary furniture with a beautiful outside space as well, the astro turf create a brilliant non-slip environment for kids around the pool too. The Bathrooms are all well appointed and the showers never run out of hot water!
I'd like to add that during the booking process we had several questions and Ian and Claire were amazingly helpful, answering very quickly indeed with honest and accurate information.
In summary, brilliant place in a great location with genuine owners who love their villa and want you to have the holiday they'd like to have and do their utmost to make that happen.
Awesome experience that we all enjoyed and a bargain at the price compared to other villas in the area, we've already booked and will be back next year.
Go on, treat yourself....you won't regret it......
