One of those few places we are reluctant to review because? it might get full up and we may not get a space again..
Very good all round with peace and quiet with use of decent pool, overall much much better than we hoped for.
Whilst it is possible to stay using the local site centre, You really need a car we hired from Cicar there are many many rental companies but we were happy with this one.
The Villa suited us really well, the owner keeps a decent standard and we trust we left it as good if not better than it was. Lovely to see the sun rise from bedroom from one side and set on the other.
Bike rental is available from the main Park site short walk from the villa
El Cotillo beaches are really good [about 20 min drive] for sea swimming and lounging, the small town of Lajares [10 min drive] has number of restaurants. Of course if you want clubland,zoo and jazz then go to Corralajo [25 min drive] Times are approx.
We could say a lot more but having traveled around the world a bit this villa for us was and is truly just what we wanted.
Note little English radio or TV apart from two american tv channels and one FM radio station from Lanzote but there is a DVD player if you were bored, but you do have wifi available however we had little time to spend on TV radio or wifi.
had a truly marvelous time
Thank you for letting us stay.

Excellent time at Villa Gecko.
Everything about the stay was wonderful. The owner, Don, was helpful and friendly throughout the whole process. The villa itself is spacious, very well equipped and a great base for a family holiday. I had been to the Origo Mare resort before and knew that it was a fair way from the nearest village, Lajares (10 mins by car), and set in a spectacular volcanic plain... The Origo Mare resort was exceptionally clean and the kids had a great time making friends and swimming in the numerous pools. The swimming pools were fairly quiet and the nearest pool was a great haven at which to unwind and relax.
We ate at the villa most nights, enjoying the breeze whilst dining al fresco.
With many wonderful beaches nearby and countless opportunities to surf, snorkel and laze around I cannot think of a better place to stay on the island.

“Would rebook”
Reviewed 13 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

After a couple of small issues to overcome when we arrived, which we understand the Landlord has since rectified, the stay proved to be very relaxing, exactly what we needed after a hectic year in the UK. The villa is very clean, well appointed and with great views of the local volcanic landscape, a perfect breakfast view for the dawn rising over the hills from either the master bedroom terrace or back garden - a perfect view at any time of day, come to that.

A couple of things to bear in mind if you are a couple with no kids (as we are !!) - we went in November, outside the high season, and as such it was very quiet with practically no villas occupied. This is exactly what we wanted however we would imagine in high season, with all / most of the 200 or so villas occupied and water park / pools in full use, it would be a rather more noisy affair with many children doing what they do best - being noisy ! And if you are tall we also found that the kitchen, whilst very well appointed and very well planned into the open-plan lounge is quite low in places and at anything approaching 6ft the stairs and hob extract often cause you to bump your head.

Neither of these are big issues, they just need to be borne in mind when booking the villa.

Overall - a great experience that we would repeat if we were looking to go back to Fuerteventura.

“Comfortable family home, off the beaten track”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We enjoyed our stay at this villa. A clean, comfortable, very well equipped home with a family feel, on a large, though mostly unoccupied, development between Lajares and the north coast. There are lovely views of the mountains from the back of the house. The swimming pool which is nearby would be very nice in summer (we were there in December). Restaurants and shops at Lajares are within easy reach by car. We tended to use the beaches of El Cotillo which are reachable by car. There is a nice garden with sun loungers, which is very private when the house next door is not occupied. The location is a bit unusual, since it is not in a village, but you can get most things in Lajares.

“Peaceful well equipped Villa”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed at Villa Gecko for Three Weeks in January / February. The Villa is well equipped and was clean and tidy for our arrival . Very peaceful location although part of large complex, and very quiet during our stay. Very close to Majanicho fishing village and surfing beach. If you're after some peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful scenery then I would highly recommend this place. On-site swimming pools and tennis courts. Easy 20 minute drive into Corralejo to sample the " bright lights" . Everything on the island is a short car trip away and petrol is very cheap.
