Playa Blanca Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 2 shower room. Sleeps 8

Situated on a 1,000m2 plot in probably the most central and sought after area of delightful Playa Blanca and only 5 minutes walk from the village and beach, this beautiful, traditional villa is furnished to the highest standard and offers all the comforts of home. The villa is detached, has a large drive with parking and private garden all around. There is a private, heated pool with spacious terrace and sunbeds. In addition, residents and guests of Los Calamares have the advantage of the free use of the community tennis court.

The flat screen TV with full Sky package , DVD with a selection of movies plus the Nintendo Wii games console are just the beginning! The hifi system for MP3 and Ipods has speakers both in the house and the terrace and the free WiFI even works by the pool!

The terrace is so delightful that you may well find that you do not want to leave and many guests find themselves settling into the 'manana, manana' way of life and hence, have to come again

Playa Blanca: Nestled at the most Southern point of the Island, Playa Blanca (White Beach), once a small fishing village has grown sympathetically into a relaxing and tranquil resort. Family friendly, you can enjoy dinner whilst your children play on the beach in front knowing they are safe and in sight.

There is a vast choice of restaurants including some excellent fish ones and a good selection of shops selling everything from flip-flops to diamond jewellery.

Out and About: Although a car is not necessary for this villa, we generally recommend one. Benefits include avoiding taxi queues at the airport and not having to carry the shopping! A small car may be hired for as little as GBP18.00 per day and when you realise a taxi from the airport costs about €45 it all makes sense! There is of course the added benefit of being able to use a car for day trips perhaps to Fire Mountain or El Golfo.

About Therese or Sam

I fell in love with Lanzarote and in particular Playa Blanca back in 1980 and was an annual visitor until I bought the Squid House in 1998. At the time there were very few houses in Playa Blanca and I had a choice of about 7 !. Over the years the house has evolved and been practically rebuilt . Originally a small two bedroom cottage it is now a spacious 4 bedroom , 3 bathroom house with pool. I still adore Playa Blanca and travel there at every opportunity which means at least 4 times a year. I hope you will love Playa Blanca and the Squid House as much as I do.

Therese or Sam purchased this bungalow in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Therese,

Where do I begin, in relation to saying how much we all enjoyed our holiday in your lovely home. It was a fantastic holiday all round, great location, great house, lovely helpful people (Janet and Brian) and of course yourself, the most helpful, efficient, lady I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with in relation to booking holidays. I cannot praise you enough, its no wonder your home is so sought after and a lot of that is down to you and your management skills, your fantastic. The house was just as described and more, an oasis of tranquility in the hustle and bustle of busy life, I miss it even now, we as a family have found our ideal holiday home (and we have been to places in Spain and Portugal) but Squid House is it, we have found the perfect place in the sun and we will be back, I can promise you that. I have the gate key for the house that you allowed us to use on the last day while waiting to go to the airport, again a fantastic gesture from you and it was very well received, allowing us to have somewhere other than the airport to wait in all day. I am posting this key to you tomorrow, I have it ready to go. So Therese until we save our money up again (ha, ha,) I am very sure we will be back to visit you next year, please god. So once again THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH we all had a fantastic time, and long lasting memories.

My very best regards

Awsome way to spend half term

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say what a delight it was to spend a week away from the UK, and what a location!! The squid house is perfect in every way for our family getaway. Very child (and grandaprent) friendly. All mods and cons with fantastic al fresco dining. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the carnival was a great bonus! Very short walk to the town and beaches (Flemengo beach was the best). Weather could have been a little better but that did nto stop us from enjoying BBQ's both at the villa and on top of the volcano.

Thank you very much.

Owner's Response: That's Lanzarote for you! Even the worst of winter in Lanzarote is still far far better than the UK. The annual carnival in Feb normally sees more sunshine than any summer carnival in the UK.

Best equipped villa on Los Calamares

  • 5 of 5

This is our 7th stay on Los Calamares estate and the Squid house is the best equipped villa. Facilities are as described - plus Plenty of outside seating for shade or sun throughout the day. Good pool temperature and no slippery tiles in pool area. Well equipped kitchen with lots of wine coolers. Roomy shower with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Large bath towels. Magnifying shaving mirror and sewing kit. Comfortable bed. Fast and reliable internet and chargers for your phone and tablet. Sky tv went off during our visit but this was rectified within 24 hours of reporting. We will definitely use the Squid House in future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your delightful feedback. We try our best to ensure that the house has everything that you could possibly need! We continually look to update and will be add internet TV in the next week or so bringing back BBC and ITV along with the existing SKY package.

The property was better than described. A fabulous location and a large spacious property with all the home comforts. Everything was clean and tidy and all the facilities worked as they were described. We had a small problem with the internet supply but that was quickly resolved and worked fine from there on in. Service and communication were excellent. The property really is a gem and when returning to Lanzarote it would have to be my first choice.

Summed up, excellent.

' The one that has it all'.. You're not wrong!!!

  • 2 of 5

Well what can I say other than amazing amazing amazing!!! From start to finish the whole experience of dealing with Therese, to arriving at the villa was superb. I am a 40+ professional lady getting married in later life and was planning my hen weekend with my 5 closest girlie friends. As well as laughs and giggles we wanted luxury and to relax and chill over a long weekend break. From all of the villas I looked at and enquired to Therese was the only one who responded positively. Once I made the booking she supplied me with a whole lot of information that turned out to be so correct and accurate it made things very easy once we arrived.

Upon arrival the wow factor was astounding to all of us! We looked in and out of every room getting more and more excited about the fact that we had fallen upon such an amazing place and this was to be our home for the next four days.

The place was spotless,the bathrooms were sparkling, there was tea, coffee, milk & sugar waiting for us. Even ice in the freezer for the first drink! Every bedroom had 2 pairs of slippers and towels nicely folded waiting for us. It was home from home!!!

The pictures do not do the outside area justice. The gardens were beautiful, the pool lovely and our favourite area by far was the outside verrandar. With its inviting relaxing chairs and loungers, candles to burn and twinkly lights that came on at night we sat until the very early hours laughing and chatting and to add to the ambience we could even play our favourite music through the outdoor system.

For 6 very professional, hard working Mums 'Squid House' was pure luxury and the best tonic for anyone needing a break without any worries. My business runs on mouth to mouth advertising and I firmly believe in spreading the word about something when I find it. I run a small local Beauty Salon and have already told my clients about this little gem of a find.

If you are thinking of booking ' Squid House' whether its for family or friends then think no it!! I am already considering taking the family later in the year. Thank you to Therese for making 'Squid House' 'The one that has it all' and I think you should add 'and more' to that.xx

Wonderful holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

We are back to the wind and rain of England after a fantastic break at Squid House. The accommodation is superb and although there were only two of us, can easily cater for eight. The highlights were the veranda and pool but home comforts such as having sky tv and wifi were major plusses. Also air conditioning and a very comfy bed meant for a great sleep each night. It’s the perfect place for R&R.

The villa is easily located by car and we recommend hiring one if you want to see more than just Playa Blanca on your holiday (also cost for a week’s car hire was about the same as taxis to and from the airport so pretty much a no-brainer!). The volcanoes and dromedary ride are just 20-odd minutes away and highly recommended. No need for a car at the resort, however, it is only a 10 minute walk down to the beach, bars and restaurants from the villa. We found the best restaurants at Marina Rubicon but also great tapas nearer to where the ferry operates from.

All in all, a fantastic villa in a great location and we’ll definitely go back.
