Having visited Lanzarote on many occasions we couldn't think of a better place to buy. We were attracted to the warm all year round sunshine and laid back lifestyle which appeals to people of all ages and is a complete contrast to our everyday busy lives in the South of England. We visit as often as possible to recharge our batteries at this beautiful, tranquil villa.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Owner chose Yaiza
There were many reasons why we decided to purchase in Lanzarote–flight time is just under 4 hours, the time zone is the same, the Island is so beautiful and unspoilt and of course the guaranteed sunshine all year round.We chose Playa Blanca well because in our opinion none of the other resorts can compete. Playa Blanca has it all - low rise, well planned resort with the most breath-taking views and beaches and just 25 minutes drive from the airport.A few minutes walk from the coastline which hosts 2 beaches–Playa Montana and Flamingo and the local shops are just around the corner.The town of Playa Blanca is a 5 minute drive away.When we viewed the property with its location just a few minutes from the coast we just knew this was what we had been looking for.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Dolores, detached and built to a very high specification, large garden, private pool (electrically heated), private parking, marble flooring throughout and high ceilings in the lounge and master bedroom to give a light and airy feeling. Newly fitted air conditioning/heating in the main bedroom. We visit regularly to inspect the property and ensure it is maintained to the luxury standard that we want and would expect if we were renting.We have engaged the services of a local English speaking villa management company and our housekeepers Karen & Mike take as much pride in the Villa as we do.Should you choose to rent with us we can assure you that we will look after you very well as we appreciate that your holiday is important to you.Villa Dolores offers peace and tranquility and is a ‘Home Away From Home'

We enjoyed excellent communication and help from start to finish, both from the owners and the villa management team. The villa is in a quiet residential area approx. 30 mins easy travel on excellent roads (better than the UK's).
Although it's a two bedroomed villa, it is actually on a very large plot with high ceilings that kept us cool even without using the air-con! Very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated to a high spec. with everything catered for. The design means that we had views of both the sea (10 mins stroll away with fantastic rock pools) and the impressive volcanic landscape, whilst sitting by the lovely warm pool. The clever garden design means no one is over-looked and the strong daily breeze can always be escaped if desired (but for us it made the heat enjoyable, but I'd recommend a light cardy for the evening). The double bed was really comfortable and the rooms had masses of storage. The bikes were a huge bonus to have, rather than hiring them and predicting how many days would be needed (that's me being lazy of course!). One bike had a flat on arrival but Mike soon sorted that for us.
Unless you've seen everything before, I would recommend a car as the rental cost is very low and only a little more that a taxi transfer, so it's a 'no brainer'! (we used AutoReisen as suggested by the owners). Their office is right by 'luggage collection' at the airport and then the car pick-up is opposite. A bit of a slow process but simple with NO sell for extras; a quick return. There appears to be no parking fees anywhere on Lanzarote, which pleased my husband as a "refreshing change".
Top Tips: On arrival - buy some bottled water en-route to the villa from one of many petrol stations that you pass. We had a late flight and would have liked a drink and rest before having to venture back out to find the local shops.
Top Tips: Groceries - there is a big price range, so look for the larger stores. We found the largest near 'Rubicon Marina', which is also an excellent evening eating area. Easy parking with early dining for youngsters.
Top Tips: parking - For evening visits to Playa Blanca, park at the ferry terminal. It's free and safe walking straight onto the harbor walkway containing most of the shops and restaurants. Very good if you are less confident at driving/parking.
Top Tips: local sea access - head for the light house for the easiest and safe access down to the sea and rock-pools.
Overall a great villa; we'll be back

Had a wonderful stay, great communication from owners, will definitely be booking again.
Easy,relaxing. Everything we needed was there. The pool was delightful. Management team helpful and owners communication was great. Recommended 😊
We stayed for a week in Villa Dolores and we're very impressed from the moment we arrived. It was spotlessly clean, very well equipped with quality furnishings throughout. The outside was spacious and a sun trap. The pool was lovely and warm and used daily. Would highly recommend to family and friends and would have no hesitation to return. Communication with Cheryl and Howard was excellent. Overall the Villa was fault less. Thank you.
Lovely property in quiet location. Had everything we needed.
Had a very enjoyable week in this lovely villa. Had everything we needed including heated pool, sky TV and internet! Villa well equipped and beautifully clean. Would definitely like to return!
A home from home.
Lovely villa with everything you need for a comfortable stay. A quiet location but with supermarket and restaurants a 5 minute walk away, and a sea view through the gardens. The pool is lovely and with the heating a perfect temperature for a swim at any time of the day. The garden has plenty of places to sit both in the sun and the shade. The dining table under cover is perfect for meals out of the breeze and warm as it catches the evening sun through the glass bricks.
Would definitely use it again.
