Known as Studio Helen, on the first floor, this studio is open plan, sleeps 2 (or 4 including sofa), has a magnificent view of the sea, with access to a pool and is only 3 minutes from the beach.
On the south side of the island between Gran Tarajal and Tarajalejo, the small quiet fishing village of Giniginamar is a jewel of white houses set on a black sandy beach under an azure blue sky!!
Get away from it all here where there is no mass tourism, no high rises, or noisy beach bars to disturb the peace and quiet of this tranquil setting. What you DO get is the best of the island - unspoilt stretches of beach and countryside, magnificent views, friendly locals and clear water.
You can see it from the window or terrace and it´s only 7 minutes walk away. Black volcanic sand/pebble, it is generally uncrowded. Fishing from the beach or cliffs is also recommended by my previous guests!
Compact and well designed, the open plan layout of the studio makes it light and airy. The sleeping area with two single beds is screened from the living area by a half height wall for privacy and there is a separate bathroom (with bath, bidet, WC). The "American" kitchen has fridge, kettle, toaster and a two ring electric hob.
We provide fresh towels and sheets every week
There is TV with digital Spanish TV which also offers films in English.
Satellite TV with many German channels and lots of international music channels (TV and radio)
INTERNET: Free wifi
Within a few minutes walk is a wonderful restaurant run by a friendly German couple who also speak Spanish and English. They offer a variety of cuisines, German cooking as well as traditional canarian dishes.
In the village itself (about 4 minutes walk) is the local bar with plenty of authentic local atmosphere where you can sample typical canarian dishes including fresh fish and a drink or two. The setting is superb and you will literally be sitting right on the beach where you can watch the fishermen bringing in their catch and be close enough to toss a pebble in the sea!!
There is also another friendly cafe bar for a lesser snack or ice cream overlooking the village games court.
There are no facilities in the village for shopping - which is the price you pay for a quiet environment but in Gran Tarajal, the next village along, you can find all the supermarkets and shops for anything you might need.
For this reason we recommend guests to hire a car, so that they are independent and can take advantage of what the island has to offer.
Easy parking on quiet street outside.
The Canary islands are known for their fantastic year round climate and Fuerteventura has an interesting culture to explore, incredible volcanic scenery, is great for hiking and known for its watersports (especially windsurfing), golf and naturist beaches for the so-inclined.

We are flexible on timings when possible by prior arrangement but on changeover days when guests are arriving and leaving on the same day then these times must be adhered to in order to ensure time for cleaning and preparation.
Any delay of check out will be charged at a rate of 7.50 Euros per hour or part thereof. BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT ANY DELAY OF CHECK OUT IS ACCEPTABLE WITHOUT PRIOR AGREEMENT.
No pets allowed sorry (community association rule)
I do not exclude smokers but ask that if you do smoke in the apartment you act reponsibly and use the ashtrays provided and take care respect the furnishings and fittings with ash and lit cigarettes.
Please do not leave rubbish in communal areas. Use the large containers in the road outside which are emptied every day.
This is a very quiet building and area in general therefore we would hope that guests would respect this and not cause undue noise or nuisance to other residents or guests when in the apartment or in the communal areas.
I´m a Welsh girl living in Spain.
I love languages, photography, sun, swimming and snowboarding!
Always prefer smaller, interesting and different accommodation on holiday rather than uniform hotels which are the same the world over. Hence I´ve joined Airbnb. I hope other people will appreciate the accommodation I provide.
