About Dave van Bakel
Hi, I'm Dave. I have been living on this magical island for 13 years and I still love this place. When I'm not working as a freelance captain I enjoy surfing, windsurfing and fishing. I like to hear from my guests in the villa and on the island! I hope to see you sometime in this particular part of the world.
Dave van Bakel purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Dave van Bakel chose La Oliva
I got this property because of the vicinity of all the great beaches. The village of Lajares itself is a small lively place with a couple of excellent coffeebars, shops and restaurants. I also like the lack of artificial lighting and thus the starry nights around here.

Best location in Lajares!
We had an amazing 2 week holiday at Tommy’s villa. The house is exactly as described, the pool is warm and the hot tub well looked after. The views from the villa, especially the sunset over the mountains were amazing. The villa is 10 min walk from the centre of Lajares and only 5 min away from the double volcano track with restaurants and bars. Dave is a fantastic host who responds straight away. We would give this holiday a million star rating if there was the option!!!
Such a tranquil place, so relaxing. The pool and hot tub are a great combination. Really good base for exploring the island
great villa. pool was great . our 10 year old triplets loved it. great base to explore. the villa had everything you need and dave was very helpful. would definitely recommend and hope to come back.
Lovely property in a good location.
We stayed at the house during early January 2018 and had a wonderful stay. We stayed with our 3 year old boy and 11 month old Baby who slept in the provided cot in our room - he slept really well. The owner was really nice and hospitable and was always available if we needed him. Dave lives in the house next door, but we hardly saw him whilst we were there - the house is lovely and private and has fantastic mountain views. It’s only a ten minute walk to the nearest village which has an excellent supermarket with similar to UK prices. There’s also a few nice restaurants there too and a park. It’s only a short 15 minute drive to Corralejo plus the amazing Sand Dunes and was about 35 minutes drive to the airport, so you will need a hire car. The house has everything you need, including loads of towels, pots and pans, bedding, gas cooker, hob, satellite TV and even a wireless Bluetooth speaker for chilling by the pool. We only went in the pool twice as it was only around 20 degrees most days we were there. We did however pay the extra to use the hot tub for the two weeks which was a must, we used it often and it stayed lovely and warm whenever we went in it. My wife’s parents also stayed in the room above the main house for a week whilst we were there, they also really enjoyed their stay. The house is in a quiet road and is in a gated area. Overall a wonderful stay in a good location.
Beautiful peaceful villa, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday
Great villa, well presented and looked after. In easy reach of the whole northern island and walking distance to bars and restaurants. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to everyone
Great location, spacious and well set out
We really enjoyed our stay.
Lajares is a lively bohemian type village with several shops, restaurants and bars. People mostly like to hike, bike or surf and i rent out all kinds of sports equipment as well. I do boat trips to Lanzarote and Lobos with my guests myself when I'm on the island so feel free to inquire about that.
The north shore beaches are at 5 miles or a 10 minute drive. Cotillo beach is 15 minutes away as are the Corralejo beaches.
The airport is 40 minutes away.
Corralejo and Cotillo are both about 10 minutes away by car.
The village of Lajares is a lively little place with a number of small restaurants, a great French and English bakery and a good supermarket. There are several bars and surfboard hire is available.
