Our beautiful villa sleeps 12 in 5 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a balcony overlooking the sea and an en suite bathroom. There are two further bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen with a spectacular view of the pool and the sea. The villa has views over Los Lobos island and Lanzarote and is about 15 minutes walk from Corralejo centre. It has its own pool (heating optional) and decking with outdoor dining area. It is perfect for families as is secure within its own garden. Please note the pool can be heated for €50 per week. It does not turn it into a jacuzzi, but does take the chill off. Recommended only from around September to end April.

About Catie Friend
We are British and live in Switzerland with our 2 kids and our dog. We bought a place in Fuerteventura because we miss the sea and love to spend as much of our holiday time there as we can.
Catie Friend purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Catie Friend chose Corralejo
We love the island because we love surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and being near to the sea. We are a very active family and there is so much to do on the island - cycling, swimming, triathlon training, running, sailing etc. We are also very close to the great restaurants and nightlife of Corralejo, which we very much enjoy.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is so close to the sea, we can be out on the beach in minutes, surfing or building sandcastles, but we can also stay put and play in the pool and kick a ball around in the garden.

Lovely family holiday over Christmas
We had a lovely time at the villa. Some problems with the electrics tripping out and the alarm system. Apart from that it was a lovely place to stay and we had a wonderful Christmas break. We would recommend this villa to large groups/families. Weather was perfect for December and we speant time on the beach and in the sea. Pool was still cold even though heated. First private rental we have stayed that did not provide welcome pack. As we arrived late and there were 12 of us some bread and milk would have been appreciated for the next morning. Overall a nice place.
A Very Enjoyable Holiday with Family and Friends
We have just returned from a 2-week stay at Villa Rafiki.
We had 2 families with a mix of adults, 18-21's and younger children - and it was well suited to all of our age brackets.
Catie was very helpful providing information prior to our holiday and also (with Audra's help) whilst we were there.
The villa definitely lived up to the pre-conceptions we had formed from the photos on the website - it is spacious and comfortable and we found it very easy to relax and enjoy there.
The location is also very good - it is in a quiet cul-de-sac but is only around a 10 minute walk to both the main beach and to the town centre.
We have been to Corralejo a few times and love the place - Villa Rafiki helped make this visit just as enjoyable as all the others.
Spacious and Excellent Location - Walking Distance from Town
Pleasant spacious house which worked well as a base for our weeks stay.
Initial challenge with the pool due to the hot weather, was resolved after much technical input from the pool experts, then it was perfect.
House was furnished appropriately for the number of bedrooms, which is not always the case, and the provision of beach towels was a bonus.
The house being located at the quieter end of Corralejo ensured we could avoid the hustle and bustle if we wished or take a 15-20 minute walk along the beach and soon be in the midst of the town.
Hire a cheap car and see all of the island or just stay at the pool....
Thank you to you and your lovely family for being so understanding about the pool issue. It is of the utmost importance to us that our guests are happy and being looked after and I am delighted everything was fixed and perfect for the remainder of your holiday.
What a lovely review. Please come back any time.

Lovely villa in a fantastic location.
Really great place to stay with family. Plenty of room to enjoy the warm sunshine and a great pool for everyone to play in! Would definitely recommend.
We thought the property was in an almost perfect location we loved the space especially outside.
We loved the fact that there was sunny and shady space outside the villa. The pool, however, never got warm enough for us, the pool maintenance guy came out and said that the things hadn't been set right and he had work to do on it after we left. However, it was a nice size and temperature is a subjective thing. The dining area is lovely and a good size space and we put the nice brick barbecue to good use. The rooms are all a decent size and were well prepared. It was great to have the use of free towels for the pool and sunbathing. The safe is in an awkward position and we couldn't get it to work but one call to Audra, who was very helpful on both occasions we had to call her, sorted it out. The kitchen was well equipped and satisfied all our needs especially the extra 'drinks' fridge.
The location is almost perfect just across from a nice beach with 15 minutes walk, along the beach, into town and 5/15 minute walks to supermarkets.
2 minutes walk to the nearest beach, which is small, but sheltered. There is a beach cafe there. 15 minutes walk to Corralejo beach with watersports. Surfers can be out of bed and surfing on Rocky Point in under 5 minutes. Kitesurfing and windsurfing readily available within a 10 minute drive. Diving is also available.
Fuerteventura airport is about 40 minutes drive away. There is parking on the street outside the house, car hire is recommended although you could get a taxi there and walk into town. If you can't fly directly to Fuerteventura, then fly to Lanzarote and take the regular ferry to Corralejo (about a 20 minute crossing).
Corralejo town is about a 15 minute walk away. The 5* Bahia Real hotel is 5 minutes walk along the beach if you fancy a bit of uber luxury one evening! Our nearest supermarket is a small one about 400m from the house with a big one about a 5 minute drive away.
