About the property

39 Los Calamares, Playa Blanca

If luxury in a sought after area close to the beach and town centre is what you want from a holiday home, then Villa Stephanie and our 2nd villa Susanna (semi-detached) is just what you are looking for. They are in the prime location of Los Calamares which is literally a 5 minute walk to the beach, town centre and the Hiper Dino supermarket - so that fresh crusty rolls and cold beers are always available! The villas are spacious and comfortable - easily accommodating up to 8 guests in each as both have 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. WIFI and English TV has been installed along with a flat screen TV/DVD/CD. The lounge and terrace overlook the pool deck which is pretty and practical too if you are on holiday with children. Playa Blanca as a holiday destination has much to offer all ages and because of the villas location car hire is not necessary. The pool has a safety fence and gate for extra child safety, however, they are removable for all adult parties.

About Susan and Paul James

We are Paul and Susan James, originally from Kent, UK. We moved to Lanzarote in 2002 and have been settled here with our children ever since. We had been holidaying on the island for several years before making it our home and have always enjoyed the culture and laid back lifestyle, not to mention the hot, sunny all year round climate. We had the 2 villas built 14 years ago after buying a piece of land and have always managed them ourselves, we pride ourselves that they are home from home and our previous guests seem to agree.

Susan and Paul James purchased this villa in 2003

Why Susan and Paul James chose Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca has just about everything that you could wish for in a beach holiday. Great weather, warm waters, good shopping and excellent restaurants and just a 30 minute transfer from the airport.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Susanna and our other villa next door, Villa Stephanie, both have quality intruder alarms and safety pool fencing for added security and safety. The villas are in such an ideal location that car hire isn't necessary as you can walk to all main attractions in just a few short minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

2nd April 2013 by julie

“We stayed here for a week in March, the villa was in an excellent location just 10 minutes stroll to sea front. The pool area was really spacious with plenty of sunbeds and seating. The pool was heated on request and serviced twice a week. There was also a shady veranda with table and chairs for outside dining and escaping the sun if needed.

The villa was very also very spacious and clean with a well equipped kitchen. A good TV system was installed along with Wi Fi which was good if you had teenagers as ours were old enough to stay in whilst we enjoyed a meal out on our own for one night. Would definitely stay again.”

by Kim, Berkshire

“Just returned from a great week in 'Stephanie '. The villa is clean,spacious and well equipped. You can catch the sun all day long or sit on the balcony in the shade. The pool is a good size with the added bonus of being heated.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

i booked this villa for my fiance 40th birthday we had both villas for all the family. from the moment i booked the contact between paul and susan with me was brilliant answering any question quickly. the villas are perfect with everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday. the shops, bars and beach are a 5 min walk away with the waterpark a 15 min walk or 4 euro taxi ride. i would recommend booking your transfers with paul and susan which are a really good price but the information about the island they give you is really useful. this is the first holiday i did not want to come home, if you are looking for a perfect villa holiday i would defiantly recommend these villas i could not find a fault with anything from villa to the lovely couple we booked with. we are already looking to return.

Fantastic week at Villa Stephanie

  • 5 of 5

Four of us recently stayed at Villa Stephanie for a surprise 40th. Booking the villa was super simple and all communication with the owners Paul and Susan prior to arriving was spot on. We opted for return transfers by Paul who met us at the airport and drove us to the villa in Playa Blanca, whist recommending local attractions for us to visit. Paul made us feel welcome and showed us round the villa and explained all the amenities available to us.

The villa is situated within its own secluded grounds on a quiet residential estate and only a few minutes walk to the centre of Playa Blanca and the beach. The supermarket is also very close. Location wise, Villa Stephanie is perfect.

The villa itself is stunning, an authentic Spanish home from home with private veranda, BBQ and pool area equipped with plenty of sunbeds. We opted for the pool to be heated for a small fee. Inside the villa is absolutely spotless - the cleanest holiday rental ever! A comfortable living area with TV (with every channel known to man!), a kitchen with everything we needed including a washing machine, a main large bathroom and a choice of 4 bedrooms with comfortable beds, one with ensuite bathroom facilities. The villa is alarmed so you can be sure your belongings are safe when out and about.

Breakfast on the veranda, bathing on the sunbeds, chilling in the pool... we did it all and so glad we chose Villa Stephanie on our first trip to Lanzarote. Thank you Paul and Susan, you helped make our holiday special and wouldn’t hesitate to book with you again! Adios amigos :)

Great location, ideal for young families

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Villa Stephanie. It’s a perfect location, quiet but walking distance to the centre of Playa Blanca. It has everything you need to make life easy with small children- bed guard, high chair, travel costs, fence round the pool and plastic plates etc. The pool gets sun all day and is private. I would recommend paying the extra small cost to get it heated- it was a lovely temperature.

The Lake District

Absolutely first-class choice! Book it now!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a last-minute decision to escape the January weather in good old Blighty. It was not a mistake at all! From the very start the emails and messages from Susan were first class and very informative and helpful. Payment was easy with plenty of payment-protected choices. It set the tone for the rest of the week. Last minute decisions sometimes can be a little tricky and sometimes a leap-of-faith. Not this one - it's a great Villa!

On arrival I was met by Paul who quickly transferred me to the Villa in Play Blanca (by arrangement and for a decent cost). Both he and Susan quickly and efficiently showed me the various benefits and facilities of the Villa - the private, heated pool, the key and alarm system, the satellite tv, the washing machine and many other features. At the Villa nothing has been forgotten about - towels, plenty of crockery, great beds and mattresses, good WiFi and choice of TV channels and a really efficient fridge freezer and cooker. There's a built in charcoal BBQ outside for the warmer nights.

Just a short stroll to Playa Blanca (10 to 15 mins), there are ample supermarkets for food and drink, and there is a great selection of bars and restaurants in the town for everyone. The shops too in Playa Blanca are plentiful and interesting.

A hire car is only necessary if you want to explore the Island further. On the walk into town, you pass the bus station where regular services can take you to and from Playa Blanca to Puerto del Carmen and beyond. Taxis are also available in town for quite reasonable rates, and another point, there are loads of fast food delivery services available to deliver to the Villa.

I have rented many villas in my time and this one really does pass the 'exceptional' test not because it's flash and glitzy, but because it offers great levels of comfort and facilities for a very good rental cost. Get your booking in now, it's very popular. It can sleep up to 8 people, there are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and there are ample seating arrangements inside and outside for eating. Poolside there are great quality sunbeds and outside table and chairs. Nothing is too much trouble to Paul and Susan - great hosts!

The area - Los Calamares - is a residential area of other villas, lived in by residents, locals and visitors. There's always something going on so don't expect total seclusion, but you do get great privacy from the big well-groomed hedge around the pool - and the sun shines right on it (most days lol).

Fantastic Villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa Susanna with my wife and two kids at the start of July and I have to say it was fantastic. This was my second visit to Playa Blanca and also my second time renting a Villa in Los Calamares. The location is perfect only a 5 min walk to the seafront & its array of shops/restaurants. We always walked down in the evening then took a taxi back (€3).

The Villa itself is perfect and very well maintained. It would comfortably sleep 6 adults & 2 kids with enough indoor & outdoor seating for everyone. The pool area was great with clean loungers and a safety fence for the kids. There is also a large BBQ on the terrace for those who fancy some burger flipping.

A very important factor for 2 kids with iPads is the WIFI :) The speed here is good with about 8mb down & 1mb up. Much better than a lot of the hotels we have stayed in. It also serves the Streaming TV well.

Susan & Paul were great throughout the entire process of booking & responded to all queries promptly. I would highly recommend this property and will certainly be planning a return visit myself.

Fantastic holiday at lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! What a beautiful villa in a lovely area. We have just returned from a weeks stay in Susan and Paul's villa, we didn't want to come home!

From the moment of contacting Susan about the booking, Paul and herself have been most helpful and always replied to any queries promptly. Even when we were away and had an issue with the hot water this was soon sorted.

The villa is large and airy and had everything needed for a relaxing family holiday. There were five in our party, ranging from 18 to 70 years, we all enjoyed the pool, especially the inflatables 😊 and relaxing outside under the covered area on comfy sofas.

It felt very homely and comfortable and Susan and Paul were fantastic hosts putting you at ease to enjoy your stay. We would not hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone and hope to return in the near future.

Playa Blanca is a lovely resort and the villa is situated close enough to the town but far enough away to enjoy the quiet and privacy of your own place.

Thank you Susan and Paul for allowing us to use your fantastic villa, we hope to see you again soon.

Playa Blanca is a peaceful resort situated on the southern tip of Lanzarote. It enjoys the best weather on the island & stunning views across to the neighbouring islands of Fuerteventura & Los Lobos. Playa Blanca was originally a small fishing village and from the attractive harbour you can see the local fishermen landing their catch. From here you can also take a 20 minute ferry crossing to Fuerteventura.


The nearest airport is Arrecife, just 30 mins by car. The main taxi rank is near the village beach roundabout. There are further ranks in the harbour, Timanfaya Palace Hotel and near Los Claveles at Montaña Roja. There are several car hire companies within Playa Blanca and they often have great money saving deals on offer!


You can walk practically everywhere in Playa Blanca as the location of the villas are so very central. It only takes 5 - 8 mins to walk to the town beach & center and a further 6 minute stroll will take you to the lovely Playa Dorada beach. Along the way you will pass several restaurants and shops. Going in the opposite direction will take you to Playa Flamingo - this will take approximately 15 - 18 minutes to walk but is well worth a visit.
