“Fantastic Family Villa”
Reviewed January 18, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This was our first visit to Fuerteventura and what a fantastic holiday - we will be back!!

The location is great, Lejares - a good size village/small town with everything you need from surf bars to chillax in, to a well equipped supermarket and the all essential bakery with decent coffee all within walking distance..

In terms of the villa itself - its set in a great location with some beautiful views of the volcanic landscapes - we couldn't have asked for better facilities with lots of things to entertain our 3 kids (5,7 and 8) like golf, swimming (warm clean pool) to bikes... to a decent barbeque, good sized/well kitted kitchen and lots of places to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine for the adults!!

We loved the way the house is furnished - funky and comfortable (especially the beds!) and we our kids also benefitted from the newly revamped dorm room with astro turf for carpet and cool lights which they loved.

All in all and great stay and we will go back.

“Great location, great villa and not just for families”
Reviewed December 9, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

First ever villa booking experience and not disappointed. Wanted a quiet traditional Spanish location in a modern well equipped villa and got the lot with this villa. Don't be put off by the photos and descriptions which show every possible amenity available for children, this can very quickly become an adult tranquil getaway. The villa is short of very little both inside and out and the location is simply amazing. great views from every window and the village is a 5 min stroll away and has a great friendly feel. Good supermarket, Café Caneles has great entertainment and cheap drinks and La Cancela is a superb, friendly atmospheric pizzeria.
So why not give it 5 stars?
The villa does need a few maintenance jobs completing as a few of the doors did stick, they are ready for some new bedsheets and when it rained the electrics tripped out and it rained in the lounge. would also benefit from a covered outside space as the temperature is always there but if it rains there is nowhere to sit and enjoy the fresh air and superb views.
Don't let these last few comments put you off this is still an excellent villa in a great location and I am sure as we speak the minor maintenance jobs are being undertaken.
Great support as well from agent and caretaker.

“We expected great things ... and found them all here.”

The photos and reviews of the villa led to high expectations of our stay, and all were met or surpassed!
It was pricier than others, but it's position and provision for kids were superb - a real home from home feel and completely relaxing. Factor in having the use of a car for the week and boards to take to the nearby surf, and it was great value.
A daily wander to the local bakery and well-stocked supermarket with reasonable prices became a ritual and we even found vegan produce in the town's health food and ethical shop.
Really all we needed was more time!

“Relaxing week in Lajares”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We had a lovely week at Villa Sonrisa. The house is quite large and easily accommodated all six of us. With the playroom,the sports pitch, and the pool, our children were all kept busy. It made life much easier that so much of the house was child friendly- the plastic dishes, the baby gate, the baby bed, etc.
The town of Lajares is an easy walk and there are some very good restaurants.

“Splendid holiday rent.”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was an ideal base for our visit to Fuerteventura with my daughter's family - three young grandchildren. The accommodation, the pool, and the play area were all ideal, as was the location - wonderful views, and great sunsets. Well thought-put safety provisions for children. An issue with a worn door-handle was dealt with quickly and efficiently by the villa team in Fuerteventura. Everywhere was clean, and we would certainly recommend the accommodation for extended families like our own, ranging in age from 4 to 70!!! Yes - it cost more than some surrounding villas - but it was certainly worth it.

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed December 3, 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!
