About Rob

Hello, thanks for looking at our villa. I am Rob and I have two growing children. The villa is ideal for families and we have enjoyed many holidays here with friends and with our family. I bought the villa when it was just starting to be built and it was at the time when my daughter was being born and I named the villa after her. My children are now 9 and 7 and they love the pool here (especially as it is heated!). It's difficult to get them out of it. If you book the villa I'm sure you will have a fantastic holiday and enjoy it as much as we do.

Rob purchased this villa in 2006

Why Rob chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

I bought this villa as it was just in the right location for us as we were just starting a family. However, it was just a plot of land when we first arrived and is now a fantastic property in a great location. Playa Blanca is an ideal resort for families as the beaches are good quality and gently sloping. There is a lot to do in the resort for all of us. It's away from the nightlife resorts further north and it's a nice safe area. I have also taken up competing in triathlons and Lanzarote is a world renowned location for training. You will often see professional triathletes cycling on the long smooth roads and swimming in the sea.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is just a few minutes walk from the beach and the walk is nice and safe too passing tennis courts and some beach shops on the way. It does mean that once at the villa you don't necessarily need a car although we always hire a car so we can explore the island more. Although it is at the south of the island it is easy to find and quick to get to as the roads in Lanzarote are very good.

Beautiful large and well equipt villa walking distance to beach

  • 5 of 5

This is our first villa stay and we are now hooked. This villa is a great size, is nicely decorated, and has a very well equipt kitchen. We enjoyed using the built in BBQ. The pool was perfectly sized, at times we were all using the pool (5 children 6 adults). Villa is a short walk to Playa Flamingo which is a lovely quiet and safe beach. We snorcled here many times and there are plenty of fish to see especially some stunning black and purple fish close to the rocks. The villa is situated in a quiet street which we particularly liked. The villa is clean and obviously well looked after.

We decided against car hire but probably would next time as fresh meat doesn't tend to be available in the close by supermarkets. That said, public transport is extremely reasonable and you can get a taxi to the other end of Playa Blanca for €3.50. Aqua Lava is a 30 second walk and my children (2/6/11) all loved it and it was well worth buying a weeks pass.

As a side note for anyone who also needs gluten free, the large spar in Playa Blanca has a great range (mainly schlar) including baguettes, cakes, biscuits, pizza bases, cereal and frozen food. I would personally recommend Isla Bonita for eating out which has a large gluten free menu (pizzas, pasta and even gluten free bread).

All in all, we had a fantastic stay and cannot fault the service at all. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this to my friends. Thank you Robin, Brett and Jodie!

Neal family

I booked the villa for my children and grandchildren. The accommodation was ideal. The situation was good. 15 mins from the family friendly Playa Flamingo and 30 mins from Playa Blanca (walking at a steady pace). Would recommend it and go back.

A nice villa but tired and grubby in places.

  • 3 of 5

A family of 11 stayed for 2 weeks over the Easter holiday. The villa was ok but needs a tidy up and a clean in places. There was a problem with the drainage whilst we were there which we weren't told about until the water was turned off without any kind of warning. Both the washing machine and dishwasher were on and we were nearing bath time for the young children. During this time there was a smell of raw sewage which didn't go away throughout the remainder (10 more days) of the holiday. When I queried the smell I was told there was nothing more that could be done and it should go away in a couple of days. In all a good holiday, location good, villa average.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately the waste water pump failed during your visit which was due to nappies having been flushed down the toilet. The villa, like all villas and Hotels in Lanzarote has a eco friendly waste management system which can't cope with nappies and this damaged the pump which meant a replacement had to be fitted. The system was checked and cleaned and functioning correctly. We have a professional management team that look after the villa and are based in Playa Blanca so when this problem occurred we were able to attend within minutes and liaise with the local contractors to do the repair work even though it was late in the day. The villa is cleaned throughout before each booking and our management team come and check to ensure all is ok and to address any concerns and would have addressed your concern with cleanliness if you had raised this with them when you were at the villa. I know that when a problem arrises it can be annoying and I'm sorry this affected your holiday.

Spacious, gorgeous and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a family trip to villa Natalia. Our party consisted of 8 adults, 4 children and 2 babies. Robin the owner and the people who manage the villa could not have been more helpful both in the lead up to, and during our stay. The villa is super spacious, with three bedrooms on the entry level and the other three downstairs. Both levels have a good family area although downstairs gets very warm if everyone congregates there. The kitchen is very well equipped and the BBQ area is fantastic. Plenty of seating on the balcony and also on the roof terrace meant plenty of outdoor fun was had. The pool area is gorgeous and many an hour was spent there from dawn till dusk. The pool wasn't too warm, but a perfectly respectable temperature for use at all times. The management team (I believe they are new) Jodie and Brett were both extremely pleasant and very helpful although we didn't need to call on them too much. We had a little sewage issue on our last evening that was dealt with immediately with no harm done. This was caused by something we believe to be septic tank pump related. It was dealt with extremely quickly and professionally. These things happen and caused us no issue whatsoever. The villas location is a little further out than we have previously stayed in playa Blanca but only a few minutes walk from the water park and a few minutes more to the first of the restaurants, shops and bars. To get to the busier part of the resort is a very pleasant walk along the gorgeous sea front, passing the harbour area en route. If I could ask for one thing to be changed about this villa it would be the addition of air conditioning, but the provision of a fan in each room certainly reduced and issue caused by this.

All in all a highly recommended accommodation in an excellent resort.

Villa close to the sea - great for large groups

  • 4 of 5

Spacious villa which was great for our large family group of 11 aged between 8 and 75. Plenty of space inside ( and bathrooms!). Lovely outside covered veranda which we used a lot for both relaxing and eating. The pool area below the veranda is spacious with plenty of sun loungers and the pool was heated which meant the kids were happy to play in it for long stretches. There is a stretch of waste ground in front of the villa which is a shame for the villas in the neighbourhood in general however there is still a sea view from the veranda and roof terrace and when you are at the pool area you are surrounded by palm trees . The coastal path and playa flamingo are less than 15 minutes walk away. The path runs for 6 miles from the lighthouse at one end, beyond the marina at the far side and has bars/ restaurants, shops and beaches along the route so is great for walking , running, shopping and eating. There is a small water park at the end of the street which the kids spent a few hours in and enjoyed. They also tried scuba diving at the dive centre. A great holiday and would recommend the villa. The booking process was quick and straightforward and the management company were quick to sort out a few minor issues we had on arrival around how some of the appliances worked.
