The photos and reviews of the villa led to high expectations of our stay, and all were met or surpassed!
It was pricier than others, but it's position and provision for kids were superb - a real home from home feel and completely relaxing. Factor in having the use of a car for the week and boards to take to the nearby surf, and it was great value.
A daily wander to the local bakery and well-stocked supermarket with reasonable prices became a ritual and we even found vegan produce in the town's health food and ethical shop.
Really all we needed was more time!

“Relaxing week in Lajares”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely week at Villa Sonrisa. The house is quite large and easily accommodated all six of us. With the playroom,the sports pitch, and the pool, our children were all kept busy. It made life much easier that so much of the house was child friendly- the plastic dishes, the baby gate, the baby bed, etc.
The town of Lajares is an easy walk and there are some very good restaurants.

“Splendid holiday rent.”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was an ideal base for our visit to Fuerteventura with my daughter's family - three young grandchildren. The accommodation, the pool, and the play area were all ideal, as was the location - wonderful views, and great sunsets. Well thought-put safety provisions for children. An issue with a worn door-handle was dealt with quickly and efficiently by the villa team in Fuerteventura. Everywhere was clean, and we would certainly recommend the accommodation for extended families like our own, ranging in age from 4 to 70!!! Yes - it cost more than some surrounding villas - but it was certainly worth it.

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

This villa has everything! Located on a gentle rise close to the village of Lajares, which has several friendly bars, restaurants..a large supermarket...and of course surf shops! First impression is cool, spacious and very tasteful. The huge well equipped dining kitchen opens onto a terrace with a stunning view over the pool towards the distant surf. This gets sun virtually all day and the big table and bbq make this a great lunch and evening dining place. A second terrace gets the morning sun and has swinging seats and bean bags for the kids. The incredibly warm pool is surrounded by a very well maintained cactus garden and there are not one but two soft astroturf lawns, one being a mini sports field. The main bedrooms are spacious with super kingsize comfy beds and ensuite bathrooms. The kids bunk room looks fun! Water pressure is great too! The barn like living room has large sofas and a huge TV and satellite connection with some UK channels. Although we did not come with kids, the villa is well equipped with toys, games, play station etc. and has been planned with child safety in mind, especially the pool area. Bikes and boards are available to use by prior request. So all in all there is everything here for a great holiday and you can't beat Fuertaventura for its sunshine record!

“Fantastic week and fantastic villa”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

We booked this villa for a late get away with our three year old daughter as we were all in need of some sun, waves and some much needed family time together. Before we even got to Fuertevenura the team were fantastic providing us with all the information we needed to arrange our holiday - all the things we needed to know about car hire, directions, arrival details and everything required to enjoy a hassle free week with kids was provided by the helpful and efficient team.

Having first been to Fuerte in 1987 there's been a lot of development on the island but the villa is set in a very local non touristy location, very sleepy and relaxed with a really village feel (great bakery, coffee shops and a couple of good local bars where everyone was friendly and welcoming).

The villa is fantastic, very safe and secure for kids and very well fitted to a high standard and finish. It's been beautifully furnished for adults and kids alike and even on the odd rainy afternoon the AV system was greatly appreciated.

If you like cooking the kitchen is a fantastic central focus and the adjoining west facing terrace is great for alfresco dining with a handy gas BBQ to grill local fish and watch the sunsets.

All the rooms are safe and secure and have been furnished and decorated with a cool and very comfortable vibe.

Our daughter had a great time indoors as the owners have a young family and the kids room was fun, with plenty of quality toys and books to share.

We spent most of the time outdoors playing in the safe and secure garden and pool area, the AstroTurf grass is a brilliant idea and there are lots of outdoor games provided - it's also ideal for rigging up sails etc and kind on the feet for the little ones.

The team on hand to help with any queries during our stay we brilliant and we great for local recommendations to eat, food shop and get directions to beaches and bike trails...

A great holiday and a great villa - especially if you have kids.

We re-booked as soon as we got back - excellent.

“Amazing family hangout in Lajares”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

What a fabulous holiday at a truly superb villa!
We love Fuerteventura with it's beautiful beaches at El Cotillo, great food and the laid back lifestyle but staying at Villa Sonrisa just made it all the more perfect!
Everything about this place has been so well thought out particularly for families with children. Our boys loved the pool, playing mini golf, tennis and the cupboard full of Lego....we loved having BBQ's and watching the sunset from the terrace with a glass of wine!
Couldn't ask for a better holiday villa, we didn't want to leave and will definitely be going back!!
