We're a young family of four (3.5 yr old and 18 month yr old) and we're looking to get away from the UK rain and cold, for a little bit of warm for the week. We didn't want a long-haul flight and wanted to be close to the airport. We came across Mone and Hernan's villa and we're instantly attracted by the amazing photos, especially the outside (pool and children's play area). A four-hour flight and 15 mins drive to the villa sounded ideal.
I can promise you, the photos don't lie, the villa is actually better first-hand. The villa is very tidy, clean and feels very new and well looked after. The rooms are all really big and spacious, the linen provided is lovely quality, the house has everything you need, especially for a young family. The bit that was really nice, is that it had the perfect balance between someones home and a rented villa. It had a very homely feeling without too much clutter. The WiFi was great as well as the huge plasma screen with Chromecast.
The kids play area is spot on and is a real sun patch and the pool area is really lovely. Enough room for the kids to run around the pool and play, as well as the sofa area outside for when you wanted to chill-out. The pool was warm enough with the heating once you were in and is the perfect size to play around. There was also a load of inflatables for us to use. My son fell in love with the inflatable doughnut! The views are perfect too as you can see the sea as well as overlooking the golf course. If you're a golfer it is a perfect location if you fancy a round.
The house is located about a 12-15 mins very easy walk to the main area, where we had a coffee each day, whilst the children played on the swings and went on the bouncy castle, before we then went down to the beach for a play around. The main area has a supermarket which has everything you need - it has a lot of English products if you need.
On the last day, due to our flight time we ended-up going to the Oasis zoo, which is about a 40 mins drive. For anyone worried about driving, don't be. It is very easy. The zoo was a great finish to the week, as it caters for all ages.
Would I recommend this villa. Yes. Was booking easy. Yes. Was Mone super helpful and responsive. Yes. Did we have a brilliant time. Yes. Are we booking again. Yes.
We stayed in this villa for 10 days and it is quite simply one of the best properties we have stayed at. The villa is spotless and really light and spacious! The area at the back of the villa is fabulous with a great pool and sun or shade whichever suits !! Mone and Hernan were brilliant whenever we asked them anything and obviously care about the guests that stay there. My one wish would be for air conditioning in the bedrooms especially as the weather was so warm! However that wouldn't put us off booking this again. Amazing !
This fabulous villa impresses from the moment you walk through the front door. You go straight into a long corridor off which are the bedrooms and bathrooms. At the end lies the sitting/dining room with sliding glass doors looking out onto a large patio area, garden and swimming pool, then on across a golf course to the sea. The pool is a very good size with Roman steps. There's plenty of comfortable seating both inside and out, a well equipped kitchen and an excellent brick barbecue. At the front of the house is a large area equipped with play equipment for children.
You could spend your whole holiday at the villa, soaking up the sun, but when you do venture out, the town of Calete de Fuste is only a few minutes by car, and a shopping centre with supermarket even closer. Most places of interest on the island are reachable in an hour.
The villa owners, although away while we were there, were very hands-on and quick to sort out any problems with the minimum of fuss.
This is a very comfortable, attractive and well-placed holiday property, and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Fuerteventura, particularly families with young children - although you'll need to keep your eye on them round the pool.
From the initial enquiry to rent the villa through to returning home after a wonderful stay Mone maintained contact and offered support if and when required.
Walking into the secure garden viewing the immaculate children's play area provided a taste of what was to come. Entering the villa the immediate view down the hallway through the huge double glass door onto the pool, golf course and sea in the distance was stunning.
The rooms were immaculate and contained everything we needed.
The patio had just been upgraded prior to our arrival and it was a pleasure to enjoy, relaxing on the settee, lying in the hammock and eating at the dining table. The pool was also faultless as was the external shower, toilet and sink (perfect for the kids).
A ten minute walk gets you to the Atlantic Shopping Centre where a Spar offers everything we needed for our stay. A 2 or 3 minute taxi ride back to the villa was about 3 Euros.
The beach at this part of the resort is nicer than the larger beach nearer the town centre.
For a family of 2 adults and four kids this villa ticket all our boxes and more and I'd recommend it fully. We may even return in the future.
We stayed at this villa for 3 weeks and had an amazing time there. Villa was gorgeous and in a great location which meant hiring a car was not necessary. A large supermarket and the beach were a 10 minute walk away.The marina was a pleasant 30 minute walk away where we regularly went for coffee or lunch and taxis back were always readily available and less than 4 euros.
A cleaning team came in to clean the villa every week to a very high standard and the pool was also cleaned weekly. The owner was very helpful and checked a few times that everything was ok with villa.
The pool was brilliant and the lights meant it was possible to go for a night swim. The view while dining al fresco or sunbathing was lovely and it was a pleasant enough temperature in evenings to sit outside on the sofas and have a drink when the kids went to bed. My had lots of fantastic barbecues and my husband is now determined to build a similar barbecue in our garden.
My 4 year old daughter loved the children's play area with the swings and slide and lovely the holiday so much she cried when it was time to come home. We would highly recommend this villa .
We have just returned from a two week stay at Villa Lucuma and we have not been disappointed. The view from the villa is lovely. Looking out across the golf course to the sea beyond.
The facilities in the villa were second to none. The beds really comfortable including the pillows. The kitchen contained all you need including tea, coffee, and water. There was also a basket of fruit in the lounge, which was a nice touch.
The pool area and gardens were also very well kept.
We would certainly return to Villa Lucuma if we were to holiday in Feurtoventura again.
