Overview

About the property

Beautiful spacious apartment two large bedrooms and a superb lounge/dining room

The apartment forms the whole of the ground floor of the house.

It is completely separate.

The lounge and the main bedroom overlook the garden of the house where there are many tropical fruit trees and cacti.

The lounge is spacious and has a dining and a kitchen area.

It is well furnished with a pleasant settee, a dining table with four chairs for chairs.

There is a television with local English programmes example BBC ITV CBeebies etc, there is basic sky and a new system which we are still trialling offering 100 English programmes via computer.The system also supplies a good Wi-Fi system which of course is believe slower than the system in the UK.

The two spacious bedrooms are equal in size. The front one overlooks the garden as to the lounge.

There is a large bed in the front bedroom and two single ones in the second.

The second bedroom is partly built out of the rock face.

The large shower room, almost a wet room is perhaps a star feature of the apartment. The rock face in this room fills almost the whole of the back wall and the side wall. Many would rate this room is the best room in the whole house.

The kitchen area as a full oven, a microwave oven and two gas rings.

There is also a large fridge freezer.

There is the usual kettle, coffee maker, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, and a clothes horse. (Drying can take as long as an hour!!)

The burglar is partly covered for shade. The front wall of the burglar is a glass panel which stops any breeze.

Here there are four chairs and a table.

There is a dedicated washing machine for the apartment.

The swimming pool area is magnificent.. It has its own garden. A stonewall provides shelter and seclusion.

The pool is heated throughout the year with solar heating and for the cooler months and electric heater.

There is also a table and umbrella and four chairs together with two sunbeds on the pool surround.

There is a den which is totally enclosed and has two sunbeds, a fridge and television. (A useful area to avoid the sun)

The whole house runs on solar power. There are 32 panels on the roof which at this time of year (October) supplies 3 kW of power to charge our batteries.

We are also on the mains electricity and even have a generator and the third backup!!

The garden is irrigated using freshwater for vegetables and the pool area. The wastewater is purified and filtered and supplies the many trees and bushes that we are lucky enough to have.

Two of these are remarkable in that a fir tree which is now 10 foot high came as a pot plant for Christmas five years ago and a poinsettia a which is now 5 foot tall certainly came as a pot plant three years ago. (At the end of the village as a poinsettia tree)

About Cheri & John Mullin

Cheri and I have lived here for the past 12 years and have no intention whatsoever of leaving the island to live elsewhere!!!!

We both originated from Yorkshire & have been married for 37 years.

We have connections both to social services and the health service.

We are very lucky to live in our house above the apartment.

It is extremely quiet but we do have the benefits of living near El Cotillo where there are excellent restaurants and fabulous beaches.

We now have 12 grandchildren most of them who visit regularly either with their families or on their own.

We have a medium size dog, three cats and two parrots.

All of them are friendly. They usually stay upstairs in the house but occasionaly visit Apartamento Celestial.

We live a very quiet life but enjoy the friendship of many people on the island of multiple nationalities.

Cheri & John Mullin purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Cheri & John Mullin chose El Roque

We initially came to Fuerteventura to buy a second holiday home because one of our daughters felt it was too far to travel to the house we used to have in Orlando with her four children were then all below the age of six.

We therefore bought a house in Villaverde and when we sold our house in Orlando we bought another house in Corallejo (Fuerteventura).

Villaverde became more populated hence we moved to the quiet village of El Roque we have lived for the last eight years.

We very much enjoy the tranquillity the space and the views together with course the superb weather.

What makes this apartment unique

The beautiful views, the wonderful swimming pool, and the quietness we enjoy in El Roque together with the quirkiness of the apartment which in part of course is built into the rock on which our house stands.

Apartamento Celestial and the garden overlook the seaside of the whole of El Cotillo and all its beaches.

It is in the gardens of a private house enjoying a view of the garden & our fruit trees.

The swimming pool area is beautiful. It is secluded, sheltered & is surrounded by a stone wall covered with honeysuckle.

The pointcetier is beautiful throughout the winter months with beautiful stunning red leaves.

The pool is large and is heated throughout the year by solar panels aided in winter by an electric heater.

The apartment itself is built into the rock. The rocks form part of the large shower room giving the apartment a WOW factor.

The two spacious bedrooms are equal in size the front one has a large double bed the second has two single beds.

The Lounge is well equipped with seating for four people, a dining table and chairs plus a kitchen area with a cooker, fridge freezer, coffee machine. microwave and gas rings.

Outside there is a comfortable shaded pergola, a table & chairs.

The Monsteria here are incredible!!!

There is a covered carport.

There is a separate washing machine for the use of guests.

The TV has English programmes (BBC ITV Cbeebies etc) basic Sky, & a new system which eventually will have a hundred British programmes. I am watching BT Sport on this system now!!!

Wifi is excellent for FV!!! We also have back up systems.
