pura relajación con encanto

23. February 2017

Seguimos volviendo siempre. No hay otro paraíso para nosotros para unas vacaciones de relax. Todo es realmente perfecto: escuchando las olas rompiendo, las pequeñas bahías de la zona, la absoluta tranquilidad de este pequeño pueblo de pescadores y todo lejos del turismo. Y a la casa no le falta nada, esta perfecta: dos terrazas, dos habitaciones con una cocina abierta, diseño bonito con un estilo muy típico español. La cocina esta equipada con una grande estufa de gas, la nevera y el congelador también muy grandes…perfecto para cocinar mucho y feliz. Aquí siempre nos sentimos como en casa. Marie B.

Completed paradise

24. Januar 2017

Since we rented "Casa Cari" in Puertito for the first time a few years ago we always come back to this place, this holiday home, which for us is completed paradise. The first time we only booked for a week. Now we book four weeks a year. Hence, we don't need another paradise to spend beautiful holidays. Frankly, everything is perfect: the sea, that claps at flood to the house; the waves, rushing so soothingly; the absolute silence of this small fishing village which is infinitely far away from the touristic fortresses on Fuerteventura. And let alone the house: two cuddly yet spacious terraces, enough room inside (two rooms and living room with an open kitchen), absolutely stylish, spanish-like interior decor - paired with German comforts in the open kitchen (large gas stove, large refrigerator with a large freezer section, dishes, pots and pans in large variety). For bookworms there are many German and English-language books, including quite a few Bestsellers. Conclusion: No wonder that you have to book in advance.

Would recommend staying here

15. November 2016

You can not help but fall in love with Casa Cari. Property sits looking out to sea, virtually had the beach to ourselves all week, swam every day (recommend beach shoes - rocky underneath). Just behind accommodation is a restaurant which serves great seafood dishes, we ate there most days whilst gazing out to sea (nothing to find two or three hours had passed), you would not know restaurant is there from property as you cannot hear it, none of the obligatory euro pop most places seem to blast out. Puertito had a charm of it's own which we loved, you felt you were experiencing a taste of the real Canaries. Casa Cari was excellent, (pictures of the inside of the property on the website didn't do Casa Cari justice, much brighter than the pictures showed. Karin the owner was great with her communication, anything you needed to know was emailed straight back. If your looking for a relaxing holiday away from the usual tourist crowd, I definitely recommend staying here. Would not hesitate to return.

A Paradise in the Sunshine!!

2. November 2016

After an interesting drive on a gravel road all the way to the southern most tip of Fuerteventura we get to "Puertito", a small village in the middle of nowhere (a Natural Park). The stunningly beautiful "Casa Cari" is a most welcome surprise. Once inside you really think you are on a ship! Bedrooms,terraces all have ocean vistas, and a set of steps leads directly to the shore and beach! Everything functions and after a day or two you are left in no doubt you are in a very special house in a very special place. This is so difficult to find in this day and age and for such a good price. A real gem! I could go on and on about the fascinations of this place and what magnificent weather! "Casa Cari" is a rare find in our bustling, busy world. An experience for the soul. It deserves more than 5 stars!! Martin W.

Un Paraíso

16. August 2016

Te escribimos para transmitirte la maravillosa sensación que nos hemos llevado de la estancia en tu casa de Puertito. Es un paraiso terrenal! El MAR, en mayúsculas, te acompaña, te mece como si estuvieras en una cuna, su sonido es omnipresente, te acompaña, es relajante oirlo y verlo todo el dia. El mar y la casa fundidos como por arte de magia, convertidos en una sola entidad... maravilloso! Y del resto? La casa es muy comoda y, sobretodo, hecha de manera que te aisla de todo lo que hay alrededor, no se oye nada, no se ve a nadie... és perfecta para unas vaciones perfectas! La desconexión con el resto del mundo, de los problemas, del trabajo ha sido total. Un paseo al atardecer hasta el faro o a la playa de los Ojos ha sido un paseo por otro mundo, un mundo sin gente, sin chiringuitos, sin ruido, solo el silencio que impone el mar con su arrolladora fuerza. Y de la Isla que te vamos a decir que tu no sepas? Dejando de lado las zonas mas turísticas todo es mas de lo mismo: mar, silencio, tranquilidad, paz. Hacia tiempo que no me sentia tan y tan bien en un sitio.

A wonderful wonderful place to be

24. November 2015

What an amazing place. There is no where like it. You could be in heaven - or maybe Tahiti. Sun, sea, peace, walks, everything you could need. A perfect place to relax and play Scrabble and recharge your batteries. You don't even need to get dressed unless you leave the place - it is so private. Eddie and Karen, Dorset, UK

Holidays in Casa Cari - March 2015

31. March 2015

We have had a really wonderful time. Casa Cari is truely magnificent both location and quality-wise. The weather wasn't the best although one might have expected it planning holidays in March so no disapointment there. Anyway the view from house, seclusion or remoteness of Puertito and the constant undisturbed sound of waves crushing against the front is "good enough" to fall in love with the place. Additional praise for Dolores and Pepe restaurant which is located 20 meters away. Their cooking (especially pescado frito and calamares a la plancha) enjoyed regulary on a daily basis was surely one of the highlights of our visit. Certainly our stay and in our opinion atractiveness of Casa Cari would not be the same without them.


Jewel of Fuerteventura.

What a find!! Lovely little house right on the ocean front with splendid views. The house itself is very functional with a calm and private atmosphere. Such a difficult thing to find in modern and evermore tourist developed areas in the sun. For fishermen (and women) the location is brilliant and there are lots of other things to do. In today's world great value for money but the views, together with the sounds of the ocean as you go to sleep.......PRICELESS!!! I'd give it six stars if I could.

It's so quiet you hear the loudness of the sea…

25. March 2015

Barely tourists, no supermarkets, no bazaars, no disco, no shops and no boulevard but just sea, raw nature and peace makes this place one of a kind. The house is very complete and has everything you need. No need to take many clothes (or high heels) as there's a laundry machine and the villagers don't care what you're wearing. The terraces protects you mostly from the wind and has sea view till the horizon. Very relaxing and almost private (depending on tide). The owner is very kind and friendly! We have met her last year and had a wonderful time. Food shopping in Morro Jable (25km). It's recommended to buy some groceries and bottled water on the way from the airport to Puertito. Bread and ice is available in the village. This place is perfect for relaxing, fishing, walking, running and biking. Visit Cofete with the dark mountains, the long beach and awesome azure sea waves. This was our 5th visit, we love this place!

A place with a real soul!

31. August 2010

Dear Karin, I am back at the office just today and Puertito begins to miss me ! My friends Hélène et Arnaud, my husband Jacques , my little Alexandre and me were totally charmed by the house, the people of the village and Fuerteventura of course. After our first week in Lanzarote (in a very nice place at Famara), we were at first little disappointed by the urbanization along the road from Corralejo to Moro Jablo. The coastline was more affected by buidings than in Lanzarote. Arriving at the village I was a little tired and a little afraid by the « look » of the place, the dust, the wind and all these camping cars and caravans near the village... The houses seem to me less clean than in Lanzarote, As I was the « tour operator » for our friends I felt responsable of this choice! But after visiting the house, hearing the song of the waves, and aftera good lunch at Canarian time (3:00 pm), I realized this place was one of most charming, impressive we have been for holidays. We had the chance to travel in many countries and we often searched and chosen isolated places. And Puertito is in the TOP 5. I don't know if it will be possible, but we will be very pleased to come back to celebrate a brand new year and discover Fuerteventura in December. Perhaps next year:o)) Many thanks for your house and the quality of your reception : it's a place with a real soul. Best regards, Sylvie

great it was!

30. April 2010

Hi Karin, Great it was! Really...One of our finest short holidays, ever.....I am the husband of Catrien (we are together since 1974) and i can speak, because i am a journalist and i did 'tourism' fot my local paper (Rotterdam) in the past. The combination of a perfect small house in a 'wild, 'primitive' surrounding always fits good! What makes it so good for me? That special 'private'swimmingpool just before the house...Was it God who invented that small private deep hole betrween the rocks? Really...obe hour before flood it was great swimming between the ronks in thta deep hole...Idid swimm evrey day! And i was lucky: it was high tide in the afternoon those 5 swimming days! The house was perfect! We only had some problems with the satelite-connection of the t.v. Often we could'nt watch.............BUT point....Your house without t.v. is sprobably even better...Hahahahahahahahaha,,,Catrien an me read together 15 books! Ohhhhhhhhh....en always that wind and sun/.....Great! All the best, Joris B.(1945)
