This holiday home has been furnished to a very high standard offering the most up to date equipment and comfort. There is a large patio and mature garden and the swimming pool is heated. All facing south, thus ensuring sun all day long. The sunbeds have luxurious cushions for your comfort. There is a barbeque and outside dinning area for those alfresco meals. Free Wifi. Just 5 minutes walk from the marina will bring you to the golden sands of Playa Dorada beach which is very clean and sheltered. It has two beach bars and a few cafes nearby. A further 5 minutes walk will bring you into the Old Town of Playa Blanca. This is where the ferry leaves for Fuertaventura. The coastal promenade starts here, goes through the marina and finishes near Papagayo. Fabulous for walkers. This has to be one of the very best areas in the whole of the Canary Islands, coupled with year long sunshine, makes it an ideal holiday destination for families and couples.

My name is Amanda Taylor and I live in Lanzarote with my husband, Richard and our son Charlie. We moved here nearly seven years ago and decided to build a house in the middle of the Island. While our house was being built, we bought La Casita as a new build, in the marina Rubicon. We could see the potential of having a small house in this new development. We also enjoy sailing which is another reason for having a house near a marina.
Amanda purchased this House in 2005
Why Amanda chose Yaiza
We bought La Casita in 2005 when the new marina Rubicon had just been built. We could see then the potential of the area for a rental house. The layout is superb and there is an excellent variety of shops and restaurants on the doorstep, although still very quiet.
What makes this House unique
The property is just 2 minutes walk into the center of the marina. There is no need to hire a car as all the amenities are close by. However, there are 3 car hire shops in the area if you choose to explore the Island. There is a long coastal promenade which you can walk from one end of Playa Blanca to other. This is lit in the evening.

lovely villa in a great area
Villa had everything for a great stay. Close to supermarket and the Marina was in walking distance. Would stay again.
Fantastic property in an fabulous location.
Just returned from an 18 day stay in La Casita. Lovely villa in a fantastic location right next to the Marina and easy walking distance to Playa Blanca old town.
Everything you need is on your doorstep including a supermarket less than 2 minutes away.
Amanda was a fabulous host responding quickly to every email sent and took the time to come and introduce herself to us, the personal touch really makes a difference.
Villa was clean comfortable and well equipped with its own heated pool and BBQ, outside seating area and comfortable sun loungers. Pool towels are provided which again we found to be a helpful extra.
Had a another fantastic holiday in Playa Blanca and would not hesitate to book through Amanda again.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
Perfect location and villa for 4 people
We stayed at villa casita for 2 weeks. 2 adults and 1 child. The villa on first impression was that it was very clean and contained everything you need for a self catering holiday. Amanda who owned the villa was lovely and she came after the first week to change the linen towels and give the villa a clean. Josh the pool/maintenance man was absolutely great and we enjoyed our chats with him. He came to tend the pool and plants twice a week which is something we have never encountered on our previous villa holidays with other owners. It was lovely to see that the owners cared about our holiday experience and their villa. The villa was ample big enough for us with plenty of wardrobe space and seating area. The pool itself was on the small size but to be honest unless you are going to be swimming lengths it was big enough for the three of us. I would describe it as a plunge pool. But I have to say again it was kept very clean. The location of the villa is great a minute walk to the Hiperdino supermarket and to the many restaurants on the marina. Our favourites being Il commendatore and Lanis snack bar and also their steak house. There is a lovely market on the marina on weds and Saturdays between 9-2 and it does get busy on those mornings. We hired a car but hardly used it as we thoroughly enjoyed the 25 minute walk along the promenade/coastline into playa Blanca where we enjoyed shopping and eating in the many various restaurants, our favourites being the camel restaurant for steak, new orientalist asiatico for Chinese, Isla Bonita for fajitas and paella.
The villa is situated in an area of similar villa buildings and it was quiet. I would totally recommend this villa for a perfect getaway to sunny playa Blanca our favourite place in the world.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I will pass on your thanks to Josh. We look forward to welcoming you back to La Casita.
Lovely villa, warm pool
Really enjoyed the week at La Casita, there is free WiFi and plenty of room in the villa. The pool was checked twice there and chlorine tablets put into the system, only downside to this was that it turned my daughter’s hair slightly green. It’s lovely and quiet there and about 5 minutes walk there is a supermarket, coffee shop, a designer complex and a bar that did lovely food. Had our breakfast there the first morning. It’s only 4 euros in a taxi to the centre where there’s loads of shops and bars. Amanda arranged for our cases to be collected and one of our neighbours offered to take our flight bags for us as we had a late flight home. Would definitely recommend this villa.
Perfect villa in quiet location
What a lovely villa, in a quiet cul de sac but only 5 minutes from the main Marina area. We loved our own pool and the sun on the patio all day with shade under the balcony. The supermarket can be seen from the bedroom balcony and the lovely upmarket Marina is just a five minute walk away. Lots of really good attractive restaurants are trying hard to provide high quality food. A good range of bars overlook the Marina. Couldn't fault this villa it had everything we needed ( apart from a sea view, but you can't have everything!) for a perfect holiday in the sun. Booking and contacts were easy. Amanda the owner obviously cares for her villa. We highly recommend.
Thank you very much for your lovely review. I look forward to seeing you again next year!
The villa that has it all!
We've just returned from a wonderful week in Lanzarote. We've stayed on the Island a few times and our preferred resort is Playa Blanca and in particular the up market Marina Rubicon.
This villa was excellent and although we’d read the impressive reviews, it still exceeded all our expectations. The location was fantastic, as the villa is neatly tucked away in a small quiet cluster of villas. The advance communication from the owner, along with the directions were spot on and we found the property easily. Car parking at the property was a bonus and due to the location, in relation to the Marina, we hardly used it throughout our stay. It was just a couple of minutes walk to both the nearest supermarket and the Marina, which was perfect for us. The main resort, Playa Blanca was a 20 minute walk along the beautifully paved promenade.
On arrival the villa was exceptionally presented, spotlessly clean inside and out. The front garden is well tendered and the pool was cleaned twice during our stay. As the pool was heated this was well used by all of us, but especially our 5 year old son and pool towels were even provided. Although we ate out every day, the kitchen was well equipped and the owner, Amanda even left a welcome parcel, which included, water, milk, wine, biscuits etc. We met Amanda part way through the week, when she called in to drop off clean towel and she was lovely and welcoming.
I highly recommend this villa, if you’re looking to stay close to the Marina.
Thank you for your wonderful review, Joanne.
I hope that I can welcome you back again sometime very soon.
Special interest holidays:
walking. There is a coastal promenade from one end of Playa Blanca to the other, not to mention plenty of dead volcanos to walk up!
The closest beach is that of Playa Dorada. Just 5 minutes walk from the Marina. The secluded beaches of Papagayo are just a 5 minute drive away. There is a long coastal path which is ideal for keen walkers. There are wonderful views.
Arrecife airport is approx 30 minute drive to Playa Blanca. It is a fairly straight road. A hire car is not essential as all amenities are within a very short walk.
Ryanair fly to Lanzarote nearly every day. Other airlines: Jet 2, Thomas Cook, Aer Lingus, Easy Jet, Monarch, First Choice, Thomson, and British airways from Gatwick
For car hire, I recommend Cicar and Autos Reisen for their competetive prices. Offices in the airport. To pre-book a taxi look on: www.lanzarotetaxi.com.
If you are planning to hire a car, I would recommend visiting the fishing village of El Golfo which is a 10 minute drive away. The volcano tour of Timanfaya is well worth a visit. That is just 15 min drive. The resort of Puerto del Carmen is approx 25 min drive.
The marina has a variety of designer shops as well as a new shopping centre that also offers Ten-pin bowling, mini golf and trampolines. There are 2 supermarkets, a bank, hairdressers, bakery, gallery and souvenir shops. Superb restaurants, tapas bars and cafes, car hire and a small petrol station.
