About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 5

View most recent photos and videos - please ask for links. Ideally placed in a quiet residential area within comfortable walking distance to Playa Blanca's beaches, marina and nightlife, a 2 storey luxury duplex town house completed early 2006. With a bedroom and bathroom on each level, the property is furnished and equipped to make you feel at home. Wi Fi throughout. Bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes & ceiling fans, whilst the kitchen has everything you need including dishwasher, microwave, oven, grill, toaster, kettle etc. To the front, there is a part shaded terrace & balcony overlooking the large communal pool with views to the sea. There is an add'l balcony & an enclosed drying area with washing machine. Sunbeds and terrace furniture are provided as is a portable heater, large fan and safe for peace of mind. An excellent supermarket/cafe/car hire/taxi rank and impressive hotels are close by, with excellent restaurant/bars/entertainment available to visitors.

Eating Out: There are plenty of excellent restaurants in Playa Blanca offering something for all tastes. The marina at only 10 minutes promeanade walk is a great place to dine out after sampling a relaxing cocktail or cool beer at one of the many bars there. Alternatively, stroll into town where restaurants and bars line the pedestrianised sea front promenade. We have compiled a restaurant review for all our guests to help you decide where to eat.

On your doorstep you also have various hotels which have buffet style restaurants available to outside clients, as well as nightly entertainment.

House Keeping: Sufficient towels are provided and bed linen is changed weekly. There is a washing machine and enclosed outdoor drying area available for guest use. For bookings of 9 days or more a mini clean is provided at no extra cost. Guests should bring their own beach towels. A safe is provided at no extra cost.

What To Do: Lanzarote has so much to offer as further detailed in our guest manual.

Within Playa Blanca why not try diving via one of the schools in the resort, water sports as found at the Dorada Beech or for those really energetic the squash or tennis available at the adjacent Hotel. Bike hire, crazy golf and pitch and putt etc are also available locally, along with boat trips and sailing opportunities via the marina and main harbour.

Sight seeing trips are run from outlets within Playa Blanca but driving is so easy and the island relatively small at 60 x 21km, so why not hire a car and see the capital Arrecife and the other resorts including Puerto Calero, where you can have a trip in a submarine. There's also the volcanoes, markets and caves or get off the beaten track and explore the wonderful fishing villages and small mountain towns.

Fuerteventura is only a very short ferry ride away, although if taking a car please check the insurance first as not always covered.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Visit number three to Casa Gary was highly anticipated by all, as having been before, we thought we knew what to expect. However, we were still surprised as we had forgotten just how fantastic it is! From the moment we arrived we felt at home and were straight into holiday mode. We were very fortunate with the weather which was great and we used the pool every day. Cost for food/drink is still very reasonable compared to mainland Spain or the Balearic Islands, and with full kitchen facilities in the house it was nice to have the choice of cooking for ourselves or going out.

When you visit somewhere more than twice, there is always a risk that it won’t live up to past experience, but I know that Gary’s home and Playa Blanca will always be somewhere that we will enjoy visiting. This really is a gem and you can be sure that as soon as we are able, we will definitely be back. Many thanks again Gary - this is getting to be a habit!

Owner's Response: Thanks ever so much Katie, we are driven to ensure clients have a great time and we are always happy to hear from such reviews confirming that we have got everything right. It's great to hear that the weather was good for you in April. Many people do not realise just what a great climate the island has. We often visit in the winter and are amazed to be on the beech until times when it has long since gone dark at home. I'm glad to say that well over half of our clients are now regulars. Whilst we do our bit, I'm sure that you will agree that the position of the property, the wonderful cliff top walk to the marina/town and the beautiful safe family resort contribute also. I've been besotted by Playa Blanca for over 15 years now, having previously been someone who wouldn't go anywhere twice. The way the resort has developed giving the wide choice of quality restaurants, along with the many options in terms of beeches from commercial to protected, means we will never get bored of returning. I look forward to hearing from you soon, thanks again, Gary

Excellent villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Villa very well equipped and fitted out with everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Pool was great too. Walk into the nearby marina along the Passeo Maritimo made for a pleasant stroll and it was easy to walk into Playa Blanca although there is a bus stop nearby should you need it. Can highly recommend.

Fantastic property and location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Gary's property before and can only say it was better than I remembered it. The house is beautifully presented inside and out, although we ate out in an evening the kitchen was well equipped for those who wished to use it.

Gary, as previously, gave us all the information required to make our holiday go smoothly.

The pool is now enclosed but it has been done sympathetically and doesn't detract from the lush surrounding of the complex.

We loved the walk along the cliff tops on an evening, the areas of Rubicon and Playa Blanca offering a wide range of bars and restaurants.

We will certainly be returning.

Thanks, Gary.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you found the house better than you remembered from your last visit and that you like the pool fencing, which we had to go ahead with to comply with changes in legislation out there. It's great to hear that you will be returning and I look forward to welcoming you back. Adios for now. Gary

Lovely Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Lanzarote, Villa was just great in all ways, position was perfect if you like walking to Marina, Beach and Playa Blanca etc.

Good information provided by the owner beforehand on the 'do's and dont's' and also on where to go, visit etc.

We didn't want to come home!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Booked this after walking past many times admiring the complex. So glad we did. Right from the very start Gary got in touch with lots of information and kept in touch before we travelled. The house is ideally located and has everything you could possibly need, it was like a home away from home only with the sun! House was very clean and the welcome pack was a very nice touch. The complex is very well maintained as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gary's house to anyone who is wanting to visit Playa Blanca. Also would recommend a visit to a new little cafe bar in Marina Rubicon called Café Terraza lush cocktails with lovely views & lovely owners.

FIRST CLASS HOLIDAY HOME

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading this review trying to decide whether or not to choose this property for your holiday then LOOK NO FURTHER! From the minute you book you can rest assured you are on to a winner. Gary is the host with the most providing fantastic service for his guests, giving advice about all you might need to know and nothing is too much trouble. The house is first class, stocked with everything you will need (and more!). The complex is beautifully maintained and the local facilities are excellent. This was our second visit to Gary’s superb house and we stayed for 2 weeks. Weather was great, just a couple of cloudy days, but very warm (think Gary arranged that too!). Walking is a breeze to all the local amenities, good restaurants within a 10 minute walk at the Marina and a maximum 30-35 minutes into the centre of Playa Blanca with even more places to try the local tapas; spoilt for choice. I could go on listing all the various things you can do on the island with or without a car, but Gary’s information is far better than my ramblings. Don’t just take my word for it, go and see for yourself – because if you don’t……somebody else definitely will. He who hesitates……

Thank you Gary for allowing us to use your lovely home again, we had a fabulous break and came home with our batteries recharged and some wonderful memories. Adios for now, until next time….!

Car: not necessary

Relaxed Playa Blanca lies to the south of the island and is reputed to be the sunniest resort and best sheltered from the wind. The complex is a stones throw from the cliff top promenade, which has outstanding views to Fuerteventura. In one direction the promenade takes you to the recently built Colorado area with the island's protected Papagayo beaches a short walk beyond. In the other direction a 10 minute stroll will bring you to the Marina Rubicon with it’s designer shops and restaurants. The golden sands of Dorada beach is a further 10 minutes walk with Playa Blanca centre and sea view restaurants a short stroll on. Car hire whilst not essential is very cheap at around £90/week via the internet (picked up from the airport). Alternatively a taxi from the nearby taxi rank to Playa Blanca centre will cost only 4 euros with airport runs approximately 55 euros. Sight seeing coach trips are available locally.

Golf: Full 18 hole courses can be found at nearby Puerto Del Carmen and Costa Teguise.

A course is to be built in Playa Banca in the near future.

The 40 minute ferry that can be taken from Playa Blanca to Fuerteventura gives access to the many courses on Fuerteventura.
