This is a superb, detached, luxury modern villa. It is located in an unbeatable position one row from the sea and only two minutes' walk to the start of the fabulous dune beaches. The roof terrace enjoys panoramic sea views of the neighbouring islands of Lobos and Lanzarote and to Corralejo. The many attractions of the popular resort of Corralejo are also within easy walking distance.
Our spacious, family villa has been thoughtfully and stylishly furnished throughout. The villa has a large, beautifully decorated living room with an attractive sloping, wooden ceiling and leather sofas, a 40 inch flat screen television with BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Ch 4 and Ch 5, plus satellite channels and a DVD player. Extra large patio doors give access to the pool terrace and means light pours into the villa all through the day. There is a separate dining area with a high ceiling and seating for eight people. The separate Italian kitchen is very well equipped with everything needed for a luxurious, self catering stay. Leading from the kitchen is an attractive breakfast room with informal seating. The villa has four bedrooms, all furnished in a contemporary style giving them a light, sun filled feeling. The master bedroom has a double bed and an en-suite bathroom with basin, bath and shower. There are three other bedrooms, one with a superking bed and two with twin beds which share a family bathroom where there is a bath with a shower. One of the twin bedrooms has patio doors leading directly to the pool terrace. The living room and bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans for added comfort. There are views to the sea from several of the rooms in the villa.
The outdoor area of this villa is maximised by being on two levels. To the front of the villa is a large 8m x 3.5 metre swimming pool which is accessed by Roman steps. A feature of this pool is that it can be heated and you can enjoy all year round swimming, as it has an insulated pool cover, keeping the water temperature at more than 26 degrees. Surrounding the pool is a spacious sunbathing terrace with ample sunbeds and parasols. There is a large, brick, Canarian barbecue and colourful, Andalusian style patio dining seating. The pool area is covered in astro turf for comfort. The villa is surrounded by a perimeter wall which gives a very good level of privacy when sunbathing. A stairway at the side of the villa leads to the spectacular, secluded roof terrace. From this terrace you can enjoy private sunbathing whilst soaking up the dramatic and spectacular sea views over to the neighbouring island of Lanzarote and the uninhabited island of Lobos and views across the dunes in the other direction. The pool area is separated from the remainder of the outside by gates.
The villa is serenely located in a quiet residential cul-de-sac set back just a few metres from the sea. The seafront is just thirty metres from the villa where you can go swimming from the beach. Close to the villa is Playa Las Agujas, an unspoilt beach with white sand dramatically set amongst the black volcanic lava. The world famous dunes beaches are also within walking distance of the villa and are extremely popular with surfers, windsurfers and kitesurfers. There are several water sports schools located on this beach for the energetic who wish to try their hand at these sports. The villa is situated in the popular, harbour resort of Corralejo. There are restaurants and bars within a few minutes' walk of the villa and the centre of the resort can be reached within twenty minutes by walking along the seafront pathway. A bus service runs regularly between Corralejo town centre and the dunes beaches which can be caught close to the villa. Corralejo is a bustling resort which is based around a working harbour. It has expanded sympathetically over recent years and now offers the unusual combination of all the amenities requested by tourists whilst still retaining a great deal of charm and character. Within the resort there is a wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants and there is also a market twice a week. Baku water park opened in November 2004 which is proving extremely popular with younger guests and is easily accessible from the villa. Also only a five minute walk from the villa is the five star Bahia Real Hotel where guests can enjoy a drink, a meal or use the fantastic Thalasso spa and beauty treatment centre. Corralejo is approximately a 40 minute drive from the airport and the Golf Course at Caleta de Fuste is a 45 minute drive away.

Nearby building works can sometimes occur, and we cannot accept responsibility should such an activity commence. If however, such activities commence prior to arrival we will endeavour to make you aware.
The swimming pool is maintained three times a week, usually in the early morning. It is a regrettable fact of life that systems do fail, and should there be a problem with the pool, the Property Managers will do all that is possible to have the situation rectified as quickly as possible. Replacing the cover keeps the pool warm.
