The space

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.

SETTING
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.

THE BEACH
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!

THE STUDIO
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)
DVD player
INTERNET: Free wifi

RESTAURANTS
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.

SHOPS
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.

PARKING
Easy parking on quiet street outside.

THE ISLAND
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.

FURTHER INFO:
There is a cleaning fee of 40 Euros per booking. Pets are not allowed, sorry (rules of the owners´ association).

More than 4 of you? Please see my other listings for another studio (up to 4) in the same building and separate bungalow (up to 4) just a stone´s throw away.

We spend some really nice days at Helen‘s apartment. It is perfect if you want to relax apart the tourism and to discover the east-/south-coast of Fuerteventura. It was also super clean and the view was fantastic! We loved it and would really recommend it.

Perfect location for those wanting to escape the touristic reservations...But you must have a car, there is no shop in this village so you have to go to the next town for water even. We are glad that we selected this place to stay, it was excellent to wake up with the sunrise in …
