The Canary Islands region

The island’s enormous beaches attract surfers from all over the globe with Dunas de Corralejo National Park, in the northern resort of Corralejo, great for soaking up the sun or walking along the miles of white sand & amazing dunes.

Costa Caleta on the east coast, and Jandia, in the south, are great for watersports, mini-golf and trampolining for the kids. Then come evening, the smell of fresh fish cooking fills the island’s harbourside restaurants ensuring plenty of choice for dining.

Caleta de Fuste boasts a pretty marina with plenty of bars & restaurants to sample local food .The nearest airport is Puerto del Rosario which is 8km from the house (10 euros) in a taxi. Collection from the airport can be arranged (cost payable locally). Car hire not essential but would recommend if you wish to see more of this beautiful island & visit some of the amazing beaches on offer.

Caleta De Fuste

There are beautiful and safe bathing beaches located in front of the Atlantico Shopping Centre which is just over 1 km and easily walkable from the house. Here you will also find restaurants/bars & an extensive Spar supermarket with a great bakery & fresh fish counter . As well as clothes shops, perfume shops & Jewelers, there is a Multiscreen cinema ( which occasionally shows movies in English) an amusement arcade & 10 Pin bowling.

The main beach of Caleta is another 1km away. From the main beach you can Jet Ski, Windsurf (Tuition available) and take a trip out on the sea for the day with many different options available.

The villa is located on the first golf course in Fuerteventura. The course hosted the 2004 Spanish Open and is 6069m long from the men's championship tees. It is an 18 hole course with 2 loops of nine holes both starting and finishing at the clubhouse. There are 3 large lakes with a stream that meanders between them. There is a practise area which has a 50 bay driving range and professional tuition is available in various languages. Buggies, trolleys and two classes of clubs can be hired.

There is another 18 hole golf course ‘Las Salinas’ located next door to the Golf Resort which has practise area and Clubhouse which enjoys good ambience.

Due to the wonderful climate in Fuerteventura you really can play golf 365 days a year.

The Elba Palace Golf 5* Hotel is a 5 minute walk away & is a great location for an evening drink in the pretty courtyard or dining in the restaurant. Also good for a cocktail in their lovely Piano Bar.

"Great place great location great accommodation"

Had a fabulous week here. Karen provides great communication prior to departure. The accommodation is situated around a 10 minute walk from the shops and 20 minutes from the centre of Caleta re Fuste. The villa has everything you could want and is extremely clean and modern. Has everything for a night in firing up the BBQ or milling into the town for a fab meal. Would thoroughly recommend Casa Mariposa and is great value for money.

"Perfect holiday home."

We visited Fuerteventura last month with our 2 year-old and 5 month-old children. The aspect of the holiday we were most concerned about with two such tiny travellers was the accommodation. We need no… More

"An Excellent villa"

We stayed at this villa for a fortnight over the christmas holidays.
The villa has all you need to make it very comfortable.
The home furnishings are modern, and the villa is very clean.
There is a communal pool literally 5 minutes from the villa, although not heated. When we came to the villa in December the pool was freezing, but am sure that in the hottest months this would be a lot warmer.
Golf enthusiasts will love the location as you are a stones throw from the 18 hole Golf Course.
You can walk into the local town which takes approx 15-20 minutes and an easy walk, if not taxi service is very cheap.

Can totally recommend this villa.

Thank you for a great review & just to let you know following your comments we have upgraded kitchen utensils & appliances & also switched to a new internet provider giving us ADSL fast connection... much improved ! Hope to welcome you back in the future.

"fantastic villa and holiday"

We have just returned from this beautiful, immaculate villa.
It was ideal for our family and had everything you could possibly imagine you could need. It was very spacious,comfortable just like home.
The pool is just around the corner and is not too crowded, our kids loved it,there is a friendly atmosphere and we didnt have to get up at the crack of dawn to get a sun lounger.
There is a large shopping centre about 15min walk downhill, with a large spar supermarket which is reasonably priced.The walk back is not recommended for young children or the elderly as it is quite steep, but a taxi, which are always available costs only 4 euros.
Their where five of us, and always managed to get a minibus with no wait at all.
A taxi into caleta is also only 4 euros, and here there are some excellent restauraunts. Nestors, was our favourite and ate here most nights, and we also enjoyed Fado Rock too.
There are also cheaper restaurants which do good food too, The Sports Tavern, was good value and food quite good.
The beach down at the Atlantico Centre, was lovely, with shallow water for little ones, on fridays there are free bouncy castles and things for kids.

Karen has thought of everything you could imagine you would need in this villa and answered any questions we had with as much information as she could, she was very helpful indeed.
We would definately recommend this villa and will be returning.
We have had a lovely holiday.

"Wonderful relaxing holiday"

Just returned from Casa Mariposa, all we want to do is go back. Beautiful villa immaculate condition with everything you need for the perfect get away. The villa is spacious very tastefully decorated and enjoys a communial pool ( most days we had it to ourselves) within a two minute walk.
The town is a walk away with a shopping centre close by.
Prefect holiday.

"Relaxing and comfortable with amenities and the sea close"

We have stayed here before and its still a lovely well kept property. Clean tidy with comforts that all the family would appreciate.Within 15-20 minutes you can walk down to the town and beach area or with a car 5 minutes. Taxi's are reasonable. 15 minutes from airport.
Its a delight to visit the area and we find the island very relaxing from top to bottom.
The weather is usually good very good or excellent depending on time of year but we always go home with a colour.We will book again.
