The villa has its own private swimming pool set in a south facing secluded sun terrace. Located near to the new yacht harbor Marina Rubicon, this is a private, safe and luxury residential resort in the south of the Canary island of Lanzarote. Ideal for families or couples wishing to enjoy their holiday in a peaceful place, with the same degree of comfort that they would enjoy at home, but within walking distance of the golden beaches of Papagao and numerous restaurants of Playa Blanca. We bought our 3 bedroom villa in October 2004, after discovering and falling in love with the new marina. Having thoughtfully and lovingly fully furnished it to our own, very high standards, we are now able to offer our guests the opportunity to relax and enjoy their vacation in luxurious and stylish surroundings. The holiday villa comfortably sleeps 6 (has 3 shower/toilet rooms) and is ideally situated in Playa Blanca overlooking the new Marina Rubicon. Arrival and departure dates are fully flexible.

Me & my Wife Stayed last week in May 2018.
Villa is great. Everything you want its got. It also very big and would be great for a family. We never even went in two of the Bedrooms or Bathrooms! Pool is nice and the pool area gets the sun from mid morning all the way through until evening. Villa is spotless and is cleaned mid week as is the Pool
Whilst we were there the Water heater broke. We rang the owners, who rang the management, who came out within an hour of the call and arranged for an electrician to come out within the next hour. And this was on a Sunday!! Couldn't fix it there and then as Element had gone but was back at the Villa 9.00am the next morning with a replacement. What more can you ask for!!
The Villa is located a ten minute walk from Marina Rubicon where there is a great variety of Restaurants & Bars. Main Playa Blanca centre is a 30 -40 min walk right along the sea front. There is Supermarket at the end of the Street and a Small Bar next to it.
Would definitely recommend this Villa.
Clean, spacious and safe for our 18 month old. Garden is a total sun trap and location was great.
Had a fantastic time staying at this villa in April. Our 18 month old could potter about happily indoors and with patio doors along the whole side of the living room we didn’t feel like we were “trapped inside”. The doors also lock upon closing, so no worries about the little one opening one and getting out to the pool either. Great location for the marina, and a nice stroll to the lovely child friendly beaches along the coastal path which is literallly a couple of minutes stroll from the villa. The garden was a sun trap all day. The villa itself was spacious, clean and well equipped. We cooked a few times as our baby has food allergies so it can be tricky to eat out, and found the local supermarket just up the road to have a good selection of delicious fresh food. Sue was extremely friendly and helpful when communicating with us prior to our holiday, even arranging a travel cot and high chair for us for a small fee. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby at the marina, we were nervous about finding allergy information but lots of restaurants had info readily available, and if not were more than happy to make us something safe to eat for our little one.
We booked flights with Ryanair and found transfers from the airport that were very reasonably priced with Suntransfers (just put in that you are going to the hotel which is just down the road and it’s a two minute walk to the villa), which actually made this holiday cheaper than a stay in a hotel where we would’ve been confined to one room without all the luxuries like a private pool and cooking facilities!
A fantastic holiday all round, would highly recommend this villa.
Thank you Hayley, so pleased you and your family had a great time.
Perfect location, spacious, clean & well equipped
I must first of all compliment Sue for her efficiency and excellent communication at all stages of the process which made life very easy indeed. Customer service of the highest order👏.
The villa was exactly what we were looking for and when we arrived there were no surprises, everything was as described and pictured in the photographs on the website.
There were plenty of utensils for cooking and preparing food, sufficient glasses and cutlery, good seating for dining both inside and out. The weather was so good whilst we were there that we only ate outside.
The lounge area was extremely comfortable with TV, DVD Player and a CD player. We loved the New Romantics CD Sue!
Three bathrooms, one en suite, one main bathroom upstairs and a third shower room downstairs meant plenty of space for getting ready to go out.
Excellent well stocked Supermarket at the end of the road with a great bakery and deli section👍.
For us, the location could not have been better. Ten minutes walk to the Marina where we had a beer every day and ate at El Mirador and Casa Rioja, both of which we can recommend. About 35 Minutes walk to the centre of Playa Blanca and the wide range of restaurants. We can recommend La Chalanita and La Romantica. The latter is our second favourite restaurant in Playa Blanca. Our favourite, which is but a 10 minute walk away, is La Cocina de Colacho and in our opinion is the finest dining currently available in Playa Blanca!
If you fancy a long walk across some stunning beaches, then Papagayo is the place to go. The two “Chiringuitos” atop the cliff make for a stunning view, even better with a cold beer in hand. On the day we walked here, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it felt like we were on top of the world.
As we have visited Playa Blanca and other resorts on Lanzarote many times before, we did not hire a car but organised private transfer to and from the villa. If you like walking it is possible to access all the key areas of Playa Blanca on foot.
We can recommend this villa and it’s owner Sue, without reservation. We will definitely return to this villa at some point in the future.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It means a great deal to know our customers enjoy their stay at our villa.
Great location and owners a pleasure to deal with
First of all a big thank you goes to Sue & Marc the owners. From initial enquiry, through the booking process and beyond they were a pleasure to deal with. Location of villa was perfect and close enough to take a daily stroll down to the marina. Villa was more spacious than the website photo's make out and the master bedroom on suite was great. The villa is situated at a quiet location (apart from a yappy dog next door at times :-) with a shop for groceries and bar for a beer near by.
Cant fault our experience booking and staying at the villa. We all really enjoyed our stay there.
Thanks again Sue & Marc :-)
Thank you so much for your lovely review, it means a lot to us both that all of our customers have a great time.
Thanks for taking the trouble to let us have your feedback.
Marc and Sue
Fantastic villa in great location
We would like to take this opportunity to thank sue for the use of this fantastic villa in a great location we loved the walk along the coastal path to the many facilities on offer in playa blanca and the beautiful marina our stay was very relaxing in what was a very clean and well equipped villa already planning a return visit thanks again
perfect family villa
the villa is positioned in a beautiful spot away from the bigger tourist area of playa blanca. we found it easily with the directions sent by the owner. the gorgeous marina is an easy 10 minute stroll along a picturesque coastal path with fuerteventura in the background. the marina has plenty of lovely bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes.
in the other direction you can walk to unspoilt beaches which are perfect for snorkelling and safe swimming. there was a supermarket at the end of the road so we could stock up on everyday ingredients. (they had an in-store bakery!)
we hired a car at the airport as we wanted to explore the whole island. i would recommend doing this as there is so much to see. we were pleasantly surprised at how inexpensive fuel was-we only put £30 in for the entire 10 days!!
the villa itself was lovely. everything you needed was there. fans provided us with relief on the hottest evenings and the fridge was really cold-great for our cartons of canary islands wine!! the master bedroom had a balcony looking out to sea and a huge window that we had open every night.
the pool was small but great for a splash with the children although it wasn't heated so a little chilly for midnight swims!! the area around the pool was a little slippy at times(both children took tumbles!!) but we utilized the vast amount of towels provided as mats on the patio!
the only thing we couldn't get to grips with was the water heater! pressure in the 3 bathrooms was very limited. not quite sure if that was us not being patient though!! but certainly didn't worry us too much.
we loved this villa, it provided us with a perfect base to explore beautiful lanzarote and the owners were really friendly and helpful. i would definitely give sue a call if we were going to go there again!
