Playa Blanca Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self-Catering rental Villa, Off Street Parking,Close to Marina Rubicon & Beaches

This privately owned villa is situated in an exclusive residential development close to Marina Rubicon. The house is newly built and tastefully furnished to a very high standard. It is equipped with all the comforts of home including SKY digital & INTERNET TV with UK channels, DVD & Internet connection. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with large fridge/freezer, microwave, full oven and ceramic hob, dishwasher etc. A washing machine is located in a separate laundry room to the back of the villa. The enclosed terrace provides a totally private area for sunbathing or just relaxing by your own pool. There is also a brick barbecue & patio furniture for Al-fresco dining. An enclosed solarium is the perfect place for some peaceful relaxation. A selection of beautiful beaches are just minutes away. A large modern supermarket & Taxi Rank are a 2 minute stroll & Marina Rubicon with its vast selection of shops, restaurants and supermarkets is only a short walk away. The village of Playa Blanca is only minutes by car or a leisurely 20 min walk.

Lanzarote: This entirely unique and exotic island was created by the volcanic activity of years past. During a visit to Fire Mountain, in the Timanfaya national park, you can see food being cooked over craters using lava stones, and also camels leading visitors to the seat of the 'fire devil'. Other attractions are the fantasy grotto 'Jameos del Agua' and 'Cueva de los Verdes' which are among the longest lava tunnels in the world. In the south is the emerald lagoon 'El Golfo' and the golden beaches of Papagayo. Lanzarote boasts the best weather in the Canary Islands. It has the driest climate and most sunshine making for an unbeatable holiday location. Playa Blanca is often described as a sleepy little fishing village in the south of the island, but in truth it has long outgrown this tag and is now emerging as the islands fastest growing hot spot. Development has been especially rapid here with the coastline now commandeered by luxury hotels and beautiful Spanish style villas.

Playa Blanca.: Situated at the southernmost tip of the island is the picturesque resort of Playa Blanca, from where you can enjoy marvellous views of Fuerteventura and Los Lobos. Playa Blanca (White Beach) enjoys the most hours of sunlight on the island, and arguably the best and safest beaches on the Island, from Playa Flamingo with its white sandy beach and gently sloping calm water, the larger beach of Playa Dorada with jet skis, banana boats etc available for hire, to the unforgettable wilder beaches of Papagoya. The ferry port provides a gateway to Fuerteventura, making Playa Blanca an excellent base for those who enjoy island hopping. Despite the last decade of development the town itself retains much of its charm, especially along the sea front where there are plenty of good restaurants, many of which offer views across to the simmering lights of Fuerteventura. Playa Blanca is now emerging as an attractive and more upmarket alternative to the other resorts on the Island.

Night Life.: While the relatively new Marina Rubicon offers an attractive alternative to the main seafront promenade for atmospheric bars and restaurants, there is a good selection of bars and restaurants along the promenade, with many of them providing live music most nights of the week. Family entertainment / shows are predominantly based in the many excellent hotels and cater to a wide variety of tastes. For those who prefer night clubs or disco bars, there are a small number available. Also, the much lively resort of Puerto Del Carmen is a mere 20 minute drive away. Car hire is recommended in Lanzarote, however there is a bus stop and taxi rank located just a 2 minute walk from the villa & fares are reasonable. The bus runs half hourly from early till late.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Really enjoyed our time at this villa - we had rented a car and used it to sightsee, but you can easily walk to the marina. Nearby shop very handy too. Some empty properties nearby, but found this lovely and quiet, as if we lived there ourselves! 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms more than adequate, inc super master bedroom. Best beds ever slept on holiday - foam memory, all new and clean. Great TV and lounge, kitchen has all a family can need, inc wash machine, oven and more.

Found pool bit chilly even with heating, but this was Feb and the sea is prob warm, but such a major treat having the space was delightful. BBQ outside if you fancy, lots of loungers and tons of spare towels.

People who let us in very helpful and friendly. Hired vodafone dongle and laptop from local Irish guy, cheap for a week if you work for yourself etc, ask at the local mobile phone shop for his details.

Mairead was really helpfull explaining booking and deposits etc, plus villa was all we hoped and more, would def go again. Good choice of local restaurants and seaside walks from marina too.

Local cabs nearby easy to get from Playa Blanca and cheap too.

As my first experience hiring separate villa and flights, this was 10 out of 10 and it was all made so easy and straightforward by Mairead.

I hope lots of people enjoy this and look after this gorgeous villa - fixtures and fittings all good quality, everything is thought of for you!!

Thanks Mairead and family - we had a brilliant time!

Playa Blanca 2014

  • 5 of 5
We found the Villa ideal for us , nice and quiet, and private.
The Villa we found was well equipped, and clean
The pool area is a real suntrap, the pool was very warm, but we made sure each night the cover was in place.
Well situated for us, as we were able to walk to the Marina Rubicon, with all the restaurants and bars, ( a taxi back was very cheap at 3.00 Euro's ). Playa Blanca we found well serviced by half hourly buses again cheap at 2.60 Euro's for the two of us.
Terry met us at the Villa on arrival, Terry was more than helpful, and a real asset.
We would recommend to friends, and are certainly thinking to go back in 2015.

Homely, clean, comfortable, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Lovely place, has all you need for a comfortable stay. Terry and his son Rory were really helpful, regarding recommending restaurants and places to go. Villa is just away from the centre of Playa Blanca which meant it was quiet but within (a healthy!) walking distance of the Marina and centre, also the beautiful Papagayo beaches, which are a must. The supermarket down the road has everything you need, and Ropers a bit further down has more meat and fish. Terry also told us about the fishmongers by the ferry terminal (open mon-sat 8.00-15.00), where we got freshl fish and seafood for BBQ - a must of you like cooking as we do. Pool was lovely and must be worth its weight in gold in the summer (we went in Feb). Never been to Lanzarote before, we found it very clean, friendly and civilised. Marina Rubicon is very nice for shopping and drinks, and of course good food everywhere! We went to Brisa Marina on the seafront in Playa Blanca on Terry's recommendation - excellent, esp the local fish stew. Would also recommend El Golfo for seafood lunch and Lago Verde, Femes for the vista and food, Timanfaya volcanic park with bus tour, food cooked on volcano heat, and other worldly landscape. Submarine trip at Puerto Calero was an experience but quite pricey at 55 euros each. Thanks to Mairead, and Terry and Rory for all their help. We would definitely stay there again.

Nice property but facilities disappointing

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for 5 weeks. The property was very spacious and comfortable for the 2 of us. Kitchen was within the living area which meant that cooking smells tended to permeate the whole place but with doors open this didn't matter too much. We were surprised to find that the villa had water delivered by tanker each week as the mains water was not connected. This didn't matter too much as Terry, the local property manager, took care of this even if we were out. Unfortunately the water pump kept on seizing up which meant we had to go outside and re-set it on a regular basis - fine in the daytime but not so much fun at night! Although we had paid extra for WiFi, we only had it for 1.5 weeks and the whole internet and TV went down for the last 12 days of our holiday. We had to rent a mobile WiFi unit to be able to use the internet - we had told the owners that Internet and WiFi were essential for us. Despite several emails to the owners, this was not resolved and we are still waiting for a refund on the additional WiFi fee paid. Disappointing that Mairead and Chris are not responding as we would have considered returning again if we could resolve these issues.

By far the best holiday we have had in Lanzarote

  • 5 of 5
I have holidayed in Lanzarote on numerous occasions in hotels and other villas with my husband and five children but this one really was a home from home. Upon arrival we were greeted by Terry who was extremely helpful throughout the stay. The villa was spotless, spacious and open with plenty space for seven of us! We used the pool daily as it was lovely and warm because we requested it be heated. There were plenty of towels for us to use unlike other villas I stayed previously. We availed the WiFi for the teenagers who brought their iPads, phones etc. with them and also myself to keep in touch with the business at home. We used the BBQ a few nights and found it superb as a break going out to restaurants. We didn't bother with a car and found the local buss service cheap and reliable and the bus stop was only a minute walk away. The large hyperdino across the road provided just about everything we needed for the two weeks. The nearby ropers market was excellent for fresh fruit, veg and meat. The marina and shopping center were only a short walk down the picturesque esplanade. I would recommend this villa for families, couples or older people. Thank you Mairead we will definitely be returning in 2013! Bríd.

casa rubicon , villas del sur

  • 5 of 5
This was our first holiday in a private villa having always gone for hotels previously . We were very impressed with Casa Rubicon , it is as described and very nicely furnished and decorated . Terry , who met us at the villa was friendly and efficient and sorted a few minor issues in no time.The enclosed pool area at the rear was fantastic , completely private and secluded . My partner found the pool chilly at times but it was ok for me . The nearest shop and bar are only a few minutes walk away , the marina about 10 minutes and the main part of town about 30 minutes gentle stroll , we usually walked to town and got a taxi back , about 3euros . Restaurants and bars at the marina are a bit pricey but if you like a good G&T , try the blue note jazz bar , well worth the money!!
The prices in restaurants in the main part of town are quite a bit lower than the marina , especially away from the seafront so it is worth shopping around a bit .
We hired a car at the airport and would thoroughly recommend it . A lot cheaper than a taxi and gives you freedom to explore . Try the nearby papagayo beaches , beautiful and quiet .

Casa Rubicon Villas del Sur

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Playa Blanca for the last 3 years and have stayed in this area of town each time as it is perfectly located. This was our first time at Casa Rubicon and we stayed in this lovely villa for 10 weeks. We needed it therefore to be a "home from home". It was everything we wished for. The villa was exactly as the listing, with lovely furniture and beds, and everything was very clean. Terry (the local representative) was very helpful, always available, and nothing was too much trouble. eg the DVD player packed up and within a few hours a new one had been provided. When you first arrive at the villa you might think the area is a bit remote, yet there were plenty of locals living here. The villa is only 3 minutes from an excellent supermarket and local cafe, and also for the local bus into the town. To walk into town along the seafront is about a 40 minute stroll. The bus takes 8 minutes. The seafront is 5 minutes away with a 15 minute walk to the lovely Dorado beach. The marina was a 10 minute walk and there are some lovely shops and restaurants although they were a bit pricey. It is better to go into town where there is a great selection of restaurants. The pool was lovely and warm (heated) and the patio area was completely secluded and private, with plenty of sun beds and table and chairs. We would recommend this villa for all ages, although with very small children you would need to be aware of the pool, which is not fenced off. We will definitely be returning to this lovely villa. Thanks Mairead - we will be back. Ray and Linda Morris

Our beautiful villa is located in the picturesque town of Playa Blanca which is situated at the most southerly point of Lanzarote.It is a mere 20 minute drive from Puerto Del Carmen and 40 minutes from Arrecife airport. Alternatively a 20 minute drive can take you to Timanfaya National Park through some of Lanzarotes most interesting landscape, where the restaurant kitchens are heated by Volcanic power.Playa Blanca is also a port for cruise ships and for ferries to / from Fuerteventura. There are many beautiful beaches in the area, including the famous white beaches of Papagayo and the black sands of El Golfo. Nightlife can be as exciting or relaxed as you wish, with a vast selection of restaurants, music bars and nightclubs. Playa Blanca has much to offer young and old alike. Once you have savoured Playa Blanca with its beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere you will return again. If you enjoy shopping, you will find the chic & stylish designer stores at the marina a delight.

Other Activities: Camel Riding, Go-Carting, Bowling, Deep Sea Fishing, Submarine and Boat Excursions, Water Parks, Jet Ski's, Banana Boats.

Golf: Golf is available at Costa Teguise, approx 40 minute drive. A new golf course & sports complex are planned for Playa Blanca, with the former being in close proximity to our villa.

For the keen golfer why not play the championship course at Fuerteventura by taking the ferry across from the harbour which is only 200 metres away. Equipment is available for hire at both courses.

There is a Pitch and Put course next to Playa Dorada beach.

LOCAL CONDITIONS;

Playa Blanca, like all other tourist resorts, is continuing to develop all the time. Unfortunately, such developments are completely outside our control and it is not always possible to foresee the nature and extent of such work, therefore we ask that you please bear with us over these problems, as they will ultimately benefit you, the holidaymaker. As these matters are completely outside our control we are unable to accept any responsibility for disturbances caused as a result.

WHEELCHAIR ACCESS.

The villa is all on one level providing ease of access to all areas.
