About Marie Glendenning

We first came to the island in 2000 and after always promising we would never holiday in the same place twice, we have not been able to help ourselves come back to Lanzarote - and in March 2009 we eventually upped sticks and brought our then 2 and a half year old daughter and 18 month old son out to live here permanently. Having four villas which we let to holidaymakers, we're pretty busy looking after them but when we're not doing this we enjoy having as much fun as possible with our two children. We have all settled well here and are loving the Spanish way of life, the relaxed and loving nature of the locals and not to mention the "slightly" better than UK weather!

Marie Glendenning purchased this villa in 2008

Why Marie Glendenning chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

After first buying a property in Playa Blanca in 2007 we found that our love of the Village was reciprocated by guests who wanted to return to us but we were running out of availability! We found this property on the same street as our first villa and as we already knew the area well we didn't need to think twice about it as the house spoke for itself. The area is quiet and peaceful yet not too far a walk if you want to be part of the wonderful Playa Blanca atmosphere. Playa Blanca is a beautiful resort, and has many places to visit whether it be for dining or simply enjoying a glass of wine or two!

What makes this villa unique

Villa Ventura is a unique property in that each of the 4 bedrooms are en-suite and the living area is so vast, making it great for socialising, cooking, dining and relaxing. The external terraces are private and again spacious and with the pool area being gated it's great for little ones to run around safely. It's close to the beach, promenade and town yet far enough away so you can also enjoy peaceful quiet nights in or barbecuing on the traditional Canarian barbecue.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Marie, Just to say we all had a wonderful week staying at your villa. What a lovely place, everthing we needed and the space was ideal for the seven of us. Mike & Family

The villa was perfect and wonderfully located especially for the water park which the boys loved so much we went twice, thank you for the advice and information prior to us booking it was a great help. We would love to holiday in Playa Blanca in the future and you will be the first person we contact for availability. Debra & family

The villa is fantastic, really really comfortable, well equipped and spacious, we never felt like we were on top of each other at any point and the baby loved it. The pool is great and the gardens look lovely. With regards to the location it was nice and peaceful but really easy to both walk or drive to local amenities, which was great! Louisa & family

Great villa, wonderful holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We are four couples and for us the villa was just perfect. Four large bedrooms, all en suite, spacious internal living area and fantastic heated pool, barbecue and sunny outside terraces made us more than comfortable. Unusually the photos don't lie. The villa is a leisurely fifteen minutes stroll along the beachfront esplanade into Playa Blanca which is delightful. Myriad bars and restaurants cater for all tastes along with an abundance of shops and supermarkets. We are already planning our return! The owner, Marie, is friendly and welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful.

Perfectly secluded

  • 5 of 5

This villa was everything we wanted and more. The layout is very well thought out and although surrounded by other villas it still remains secluded.

The outdoor space is made up of various terraces which we loved and made good use of.

I would highly recommend it.

Superb Ventura Villa's over Xmas & New Year '15/16

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic 2 weeks stay with family/friends of upto 8adults+8children over the Xmas/New Year holidays. On arrival, we were amazed with the large modern living space and the wow factor of the overall villa inside and out. The pools are lovely/clean/heated to a warm temperate. The owners Steve & Marie were on hand to meet us on arrival which was a lovely touch and only live 10 minutes away for any issues/problem we may encounter during our stay. Super professional!

The Ventura villa’s are 2 x separate 4 bedroom (all on suite) villa’s each having their own pool. The villa’s are mirror image, so you get the benefit of having your own privacy but with the added bonus of being next door so great for the kids to call round and our group to meet up in the day and of an evening. The villas are equipped with absolute everything you need for a perfect holiday, The villas are on 3 levels from the outside, therefore I would say these are not for the less able as lots of stairs, but having said that the villas’ are extremely child friendly, having child gates on all the stair cases, inside the villa and outside. The villas are a suntrap, with the pools regularly cleaned (with little extra’s like inflatable lilo’s and childrens toys/buckets and spades). We dined alfresco on all of the nights we stayed in, even hiring our very own private chef through the recommendation of Marie. There is a full and detailed welcome pack on arrival with all their local knowledge. The villas are just up the road from a small waterpark, 10 mins from a super little family beach lined with restaurants and shops and just a further 10 min walk to the old harbour and start of the main promenade of the town centre which goes on for a few miles to the other end of the gorgeous Rubicon Marina, with stunning yachts beautiful restaurants over bridges/waterways (and also hosts the weekly market). The other direction is La Mulata Centre again with a handful of restaurants (We sampled the excellent Sebastyans - Greek). We found eating out in Playa Blnca is very cheap,(typically from €60-€70 for a 2/3 course meal, including wine/drinks) for 4 people with a free tipple at the end of the night. No hassle of time share/badgering touts, just friendly owners inviting you to sample their menu’s, what a refreshing change! To summarize, we had an absolute fantastic holiday in superb Villa’s in the beautiful & sunny Playa Blanca. Thank you Steve & Marie, Love Tim, Lindsey, Megan&Spencer XXXX

We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with out 2 children, their partners and our 3 grandsons aged 4,2 and 8 months. Gorgeous. Spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. A great location. We didn't bother with car hire. Everything we needed was in walking distance. Beach, shops, bars and restaurants. Lovely!

Superb spacious and private Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful break in this superb Villa - everything was great for us and our kids almost lived in the lovely (and very clean) pool. Whilst the Villa is around 15 minute walk from the lovely Flamingo beach, it offers great privacy and peace and quiet. The waterpark is a stones throw away. Steve can sort out anything you may need and is available at anytime. We expect to return at some point. Fully recommended. Thanks!

Super villa - fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa three times now and are booked to go again this year. It is a really lovely spacious villa, very well maintained with lots of outside space. It has always been spotlessly clean when we have got there. With three small kids, the fact that the pool is gated (in fact you have to get through two gates to get to it) is a huge plus for us. It also means that the kids can play outside without us having to worry about them falling into the pool. Steve and Marie are fantastic hosts - if you ever have a problem they are very easy to get hold of and have lots of local knowledge. The location is superb, 7-8 mins walk from Playa Flamingo which is a lovely safe beach for kids. The water park over the road is a big hit with our kids as well. The fact that we are going back again speaks volumes!
