Villa 42, is a modern styled bungalow villa, with 4 large bedrooms and a fully heated swimming pool. It is located on the outskirts of the popular town of Caleta de Fuste and built within the las Salinas golf course. This property has been equipped with everything you should require for your holiday abroad. A short 10 minute walk will bring you to the Atlantico shopping complex and cinema centre and is ideal for families and couples who want that quiet break away in the sunshine. The beach is only a 5-10 minute walk across the road and is completely on the level. The island has much to offer and the road systems are easier to negotiate than some of the other larger Canarian islands. Many people travel to this island specifically to enjoy the famous sahara white sandy beaches and watch the fantastic colours of the sunsets. Too good to miss!

A bit tatty
We stayed at villa las salinas, and Karen was very friendly and we had a peaceful and pleasant stay. It was about 15 min walk to the Atlantico shopping centre, a Spar for croceries, and a few bars and restaurants and a further 20 mins along the coast path to the town or €4 taxi ride.The villa and the outside area were clean and spacious , but I have to say the villa is starting to look a bit tatty , the locks on some the loovered shutters didn't work right , rusty bath fitting and stairs to the roof terrace, loose and cracked tiles around the pool, and on roof terrace and just generally needing a bit of TLC, the worst was the damp on the bottoms of some of the walls which we had read about in a previous review but was supposed to have been resolved, but Karen said it had returned, due to another broken pipe, I'm a builder and the floor didn't look like it had been dug up to do repairs to me. I would stay again if these issues need sorted.
Property in need of general maintenance
On a positive, easy to get to from the airport, bedrooms are a good size, beds comfy & villa was clean.
However, villa is in need of maintenance/ replacement of furniture. The surface around the pool is unsafe to walk on as the surface has worn away. I would expect to be able to walk around a pool in bare feet, this could not be done due to the worn out surface. The settees are faded & worn & covered with a tatty throw. Many of the electrical fittings (plus sockets, lights) are not fully fitted (wires on show/ loose). All the outside lights are broken/ damaged. There are signs of damp throughout the villa as paint peeling off the walls throughout. The manager explained this was due to a recent water blockage but I fail to see how this would have affected the whole villa. The manager explained that she felt the villa was of a standard suitable for the price being charged as others in the area were more expensive. Without seeing other villas, I cannot comment on whether this was the case but I don't think it was particularly cheap.
Since this review the whole villa has been painted inside now the broken water pipe under the villa has been located and all has dried out. Round the pool the concrete has been filled and all painted with a resin paint. There are no loose electrical wires and never have been. Light fittings on the outside of the villa have been repaired where covers had fallen off.
Not like the pictures, unfortunately the villa is suffering from poor workmanship i.e falling apart in places, lots of damp issues, damage all around, faulty door locks, pool filtration faulty as well as other smaller issues and overall wasn't suitable with our kids. On a positive, we made it through the week and we returned home safely. Ive stayed in worse places but only pay a fraction for those places compared to what I paid here. The lady who dealt with us was friendly enough and apologised for the issues in her own way. We would stay again if certain things were resolved as the villa has potential. It's in a quiet residential area very close to the centre of caleta de fuste and right on the golf course next to the sea.
Thank you for submitting a review. The safety issue we were advised about was the coping stones round the pool, you felt were slippy. All the villas on the golf course were built with the same non slip coping stones. This is the first time anyone has ever mentioned this.
There is no problem with the pool filtration system, the electric was tripped by using too many appliances at once in the villa and the management company were not advised the electric was off.
The damp issue was due to the previous clients blocking the drains by putting toilet wipes down the toilets and a pipe under the villa broke, after being asked not to. The property flooded and walls got damp, it has all dried out now and has all been repainted. The patio area has also been repainted.
Also all door locks have been checked and adjusted where necessary.
We spent 10 days at the villa. Karen and Steve were there for our arrival and showed us around the villa, they gave us useful information about the local area, including where to eat etc. The villa was lovely, spacious and well equipped. The pool was fantastic, warm and clean. Good value for the price. We would definitely recommend staying at this villa.
Thank you Michele and Robert for taking the time to post a review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay so much and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Fantastic Villa, great winter escape
Our family had a great holiday at this villa.
It was a real home from home in a quiet yet easy access to shops and restaurants location.
The swimming pool in late October was the perfect temperature without any extra heating, and we were made very welcome by Karen & Steve.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and location, and will visit again soon.
Excellent Villa in good location
Our family (2 adults, 2 children) used this villa for 2 weeks in July /August 2013 and thought the villa and location were excellent. The location of the villa is very quiet and although there are a number of empty villas adjacent this should not put you off as the area feels very safe. The villa itself has everything you need for a holiday with the large outside space and pool being ideal for families. The children loved it for the pool and the adults for the seclusion and sunbathing. The villa itself is a 15 minute walk from the Atlantico Shopping Centre which has a nice Spar supermarket and the wonderful Ocean View restaurant and games arcade / play area for children. Caleta de Fuste, with its fine restaurants is a further 15 minutes walk via the beach or main road and is an easy walk. The walk back at night despite having to cross the main road in the dark is no problem and feels safe. Alternatively we used taxis from Caleta and the Atlantico on many occasions which are very cheap hence no car required. Steve and Karen were really good villa managers and are around to help whenever needed and help everything run smoothly.
As a family who usually hires Villas in Florida we found Fuerteventura, Caleta de Fuste and Villa 42 excellent and had a fantastic holiday. We are sure to return
Thank you Chris for taking the time to write a review and we are pleased you all enjoyed the villa and Caleta de Fuste. We agree with you Caleta is a great family resort and seems to have something for everyone from the little ones to the grandparents. Don't know if you spotted it, but there is an underpass so you do not have to go across the main road.
We all look forward to seeing you again.
