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 World

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.

Amazing holiday, superb Villa.

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back from a fabulous weeks stay at Villa Stephanie.

Beautiful Villa in a fantastic location. Swimming pool was perfect. Very close to all local restaurants, bars and shops, and the beach was a little bit further, which took me 8 mins to walk even with a broken ankle ( I did this before I went).

The villa had everything you could want, plus more.

There were 6 adults and 1 child in our party, which gave us ample space.

Paul and Susan were very friendly and very helpful.

I would highly recommend this Villa to everyone.

We can’t wait for next year.

Perfect Villa for family holidays

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in March with family 6 adults and 2 children and we all loved our stay. Villa was very comfortable, clean, well equipped and catered for all our needs. Plenty of towels, bedding etc. We were advised to keep Villa aired when we could as condensation built up especially when getting up on a morning or after using shower and it was fine when we did this.

Pool was fab and we paid for it to be heated, which was great for the kids and it was cleaned twice a week. It has a lovely outdoor eating area and a big BBQ. Local Hyper Dino supermarket is fab for BBQ meat. It’s in a lovely location and 10/15 minute walk to shops, beach etc.

Basically it was home from home and much less stressful for us than staying in a hotel as eldest child (6) is autistic. It gave us the freedom to do what we wanted and also the privacy and space if it was a difficult day. Which to be honest we didn’t have many of as we were all so relaxed.

Paul and Susan were perfect hosts and we booked transfers through them too, again no stress at all and were there waiting for us even though we landed 45 mins early.

Our week went over far too quickly and had a fab time. We would definitely book it again.

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.
