Villa Coco is a quiet house, located in the village of Lajares, 5 minutes away from the beach.
The building is the typical one in the Canary Islands, with a landscaped inner yard and the rooms surrounding it.
One of the bedrooms is double, and the other one is sitting room and bedroom at the same time, with a comfortable sofa-bed where another two people can stay. The rooms are not connected to each other, to go from one to the other must pass through the yard.
The inner yard is a spectacular place to spend the evenings watching the privileged sky in Fuerteventura, Starlight Reserve.
1km away you find downtown Lajares, with several restaurants, supermarket, chemist's, children's playground, surf shops...
You can also practise trekking following the trekking paths in Fuerteventura, starting very near our house, walking among volcanoes, through the sand, the “malpaís”, or crossing the quiet gullies in this magic Island.
The nearest beaches are a five minute drive away, what is known as The North Shore, or “playas de Majanicho”. It it the surf coast par excellence. They are rocky bottoms with sandy beaches, recommended for sports and fishing... and El Cotillo is only a ten-minute drive, with its more familiar heavenly beaches.
Corralejo, the northern tourist centre is just 15 minutes away, with endless shops and restaurants, and offering a wide range of activities.
The airport is just 35 minutes away.
Had a wonderful and windy time in Lajares, arrived in the dark to meet Santi between the windmill and church already felt a little bit magical. He showed us to the Villa which was wonderful if your on a budget but want a space to cook , relax and rest then you may not find better than this , location is excellent just 2 min drive to centre of the village, peaceful setting and great for the sunsets , though if your feeling energetic go watch one from a local volcanoe ! the place was clean and everything was there for our use. The building is split so Marisa and Santi are literally next door but they are super friendly and we never saw them unless we visited to theirs, the place felt very private and we felt comfortable to act as though we were at home. Thank you we will be back one day not to far from now .
We stayed here for a week at the beginning of March and really appreciated Marisa's warm welcome, mine of information and friendliness. This traditionaly built house was perfect for us and we ate in the beautiful, peaceful courtyard every morning.We loved that the rooms all led off the courtyard and most of our time there was spent outside.The kitchen and bathroom were simply but cheerfully decorated, spotless and well equipped. Big, comfortable bed and there is a lounge too if the evenings were a bit chilly. The house is in a great location behind the church and near the windmill at the edge of the town.
Lajares is perfect for people like us who appreciate being away from the crowds, doing some walking and cycling, eating good food and chilling on the lovely beaches south of El Cotillo.We were lucky to catch some live music at the Canels Bar/restaurant on tuesday night. We met Coco the cat - very friendly too!
Larajres is laid-back but has a vibrancy being a small town which attracts lots of surfers. There is a range of good restaurants and cafes, bakeries and craft/clothes shops. A well-stocked super market too all within walking distance of the house. It is easy to explore the island from here. All in all, lovely house, location and hosts! Pity we didn't get to say goodbye to Marisa as my mobile had moved us on an hour and we left an hour earlier than we needed to without seeing her.
We stayed for only two nights, but wished we had longer. The house is beautiful, close to town (walking) and close driving to both Corralejo & El Contillo. It's very peaceful, the courtyard is wonderful to relax in and the bed very comfy. Marisa is lovely, as is their cat Coco, and if you like cooking the kitchen is set up for it. A pleasure to stay, we'll be back!
Villa Coco was a very nice, clean and cosy place to stay! Very good situated: everything is nearby like supermarket, restaurants, bar, shops, the beach,... Also Marisa was very nice and helpful. Even she lives next door, she gives you your privacy! She gave us a lot of ideas for things to do and she recommanded some good restaurants. I would defenitely stay again with Coco the cat as he is a real gentleman! ;) Hope to see you both again! Grtz Stef
Lovely base for our first visit to the island. Situated away from the hustle and bustle of Corralejo, Lajares is a chilled out town. We especially enjoyed the beaches and restaurants of El Cortillo, the countryside and coastline is spectacular.
Marisa was a great host and always quick to respond to our questions - we didn't see Coco the cat once!
Spacious, comfortable and with a good kitchen, one could easily live here. The courtyard is delightful and decorated with nice plants, a perfect to enjoy a glass of wine and a meal.
Marisa also was a delight, very friendly and offering to provide information.
The central location worked well for us as we wanted to visit various places, but even if just hitting the beach, one has choice within fifteen minutes.
I would stay here again and will recommend the place to friends without hesitation.
It was amazing, like a dream, short but sweet stay, we will miss you guys and Coco of course!

Marisa was a wonderful host. She is a very kind person and very helpful. She gave us a lot of tips about the island and local bars and restaurants.
The house is lovely. A typical Canary house located in a nice and quiet village. It is equipped with everything and it is perfect for either a short or long holiday.
I strongly recommend this place!
A beautiful and quite country house! Marisa and Santi were so nice for everything!
Wonderful position and all kind of fornitures!
