Private & Relaxing.
We booked this villa at very short notice. Tracey was great with the correspondence & info. 4 days later we were in the pool – brilliant, if a bit manic on our part.
We found the villa to be clean, spacious & well presented on arrival.
A welcome pack was provided plus a bottle of fizz, complete with 2 cold wine glasses in the fridge. Much appreciated thank you.
The villa is situated about 25 minutes walk to the town in a largely quiet & peaceful area. As this is a residential area for locals as well, we did hear a few dogs barking, but it never went on for long & didn’t bother us at all.
The master bedroom has a king size bed which is very comfortable, as is the bedding. There is also a bolted down safe in the villa.
We only used the shower in the main bathroom which always had hot water & a good pressure.
The BBQ, dishwasher, oven & washing machine weren’t used, so can't comment on these.
The kitchen is a little dark at night, but there are 2 lights in the extractor hood & we didn’t have any problems preparing meals.
There is a built in seating area at the front of the villa which is perfect for an early morning brew & for catching the first rays of the day & enough off road parking for a couple of vehicles.
The management staff we saw were friendly & informative. Steve, the pool guy was meticulous in cleaning the pool & making sure that the chemical balance was just right.
The internet was fine for emails & browsing,
The internet tv has over 2500 channels in many different languages. All BT sports, Sky sports & Movies are provided as well as Netflix & plenty of UK channels. We had a few problems with the connection at times & this is being looked into. There was a dvd player with a selection of films as well as a Wii with good games. A selection of books are also available.
At the rear of the villa is the spacious tiled patio/pool area that has sun and shade all day long. There are 2 outdoor dining areas, one covered, BBQ, shower & scenic views to the mountains at the side. The sun loungers are due for replacement in the next few weeks. This area is also very private.
The pool is fantastic & is very clean & warm. The metal steps have gone & new Roman steps with non slip treads have been installed. The pool is about 5 foot deep from one end to the other which suited us fine. The patio tiles were non slippery underfoot with wet feet.
We really enjoyed our stay at this villa & would book again.

On arrival the property looked really lovely
The property was lovely however we were unable to use the pool due to the temperature and it being covered in flies. We would have expected a mid stay towel change in a 10 night stay however this wasn’t the case.
Lovely villa in a quiet location. Conscientious and very friendly housekeeping and maintenance staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.
Nice villa, but needs a bit of tlc
Outside space was great, very spacious and the pool was excellent, lovely and warm. We didn't have an adequate fan for the lounge when we arrived, Jo was contacted about the fan and came to the villa within the hour, and her quick response was much appreciated. Entertainment DVB we couldn't get it to work...cable...connected to tv via a scart lead, the volume had to be at 75 and there was a loud buzzing which made it inaudible. Dvd...perfect and a good choice of films. Wi-Fi ohh! dear, when it worked it supported Netflix but most of the time it didn't work. Most problems can be solved by unplugging the router, unfortunately the router is not in the house, it's in the villa next door, and we thought went the occupants went out they must have switched it off. The villa needs it's own router, and not just a repeater. A proper glass turntable for the microwave is essential, as the one that is provided moves about and could potentially become a hazard. These problems can be solved, and doesn't take away the fact that it's a lovely villa, and in a quiet area which suited us perfectly. It's about a 25 minute walk to the centre, if walking at a gentle pace. The taxi service is great, and only costs about 4 euros.
Had a fantastic stay at the villa, everything you need to make you feel at home - very roomy, all bedrooms a great size. The outside space is large with plenty of room around the pool and very private. Good quiet location. Local contact Jo was great and easy to contact with any queries. Would definitely return - thanks very much!
Excellent villa & pool, well equipped. WiFi erratic at times.
Fantastic holiday villa. Brilliant pool, much deeper than expected, fine for our family with children 12-20+. The pool area is very private, not overlooked at all, which is fantastic.
The beds are all very comfortable. Ceiling fans in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. A simple plug in fan would really make sleeping in the smallest bedroom much more comfortable. There was a tower fan/heater in the lounge but it was so noisy and ineffective it was useless as a fan.
The WiFi, was erratic and simply stopped working at times. Jo, the local contact, was very helpful regarding this and advised us to unplug and plug the WiFi booster back in. With 5 people, including 3 teens, it was annoying at times but manageable mostly.
Jo was great. She was very friendly and helpful and easy to contact.
Lots of books, DVD’s, even a Wii! The tv is very limited in English Channels but that’s usual.
We had a fantastic holiday here. We had a hire car which we felt was invaluable as it was quite a long walk into Playa Blanca, 25 minute walk at least. Playa Blanca has loads of excellent restaurants. Our favourite was La Rustica. Excellent food for good prices! Eating by the seafront was more expensive, but a nice experience. Loads of choice in cuisines.
We loved Playa Mujeres, which is close to the popular Papagayo beach. Papagayo was heaving with people when we went. Mujeres was much quieter, with brilliant snorkelling. The best beach for us in the area. Definitely worth the 3 euros to enter the protected area.
Our villa is perfectly located for those looking for a relaxing holiday away from the noise, hustle and bustle of a resort centre but close enough to benefit from the shops, bars, restaurants and beautiful Dorada beach just a 15-20 minute walk away. A five minute drive will also take you to the fabulous new Marina and also the infamous Papagayo beaches.
The airport in Lanzarote is Arrecife. It takes approx 30 mins by car to Playa Blanca and is 35km away. Car hire is recommended, but taxi's are readily available for those who do not wish to drive. The port in Playa Blanca is 1.5km from the villa and provides a ferry crossing to the nearby island of Fuerteventura.
By car you can drive around Lanzarote in a day. As Playa Blanca is at the southern most part of the island everywhere is north. Costa Teguise has a great fun filled water park, an 18 hole golf course and is great for wind-surfing. Puerto del Carmen is the nightlife capital of the island, has many shops and loads of restaurants, clubs and bars, 20 mins by car.
Playa Blanca has a pedestrianized town with plenty of shops, a supermarket, banks etc. Bars and restaurants are on the seafront. There is a promenade which leads along the front to The International Marina Rubicon. This is a brand new marina with very stylish shops and fantastic restaurants/bars. Some good art shops too. Leisure activities include jet/water skiing, diving, snorkeling, cycling, fishing, tennis, bowling, horse riding, wind-surfing, swimming, quad biking or just plain sun bathing. Also take the ferry to Fuerteventura, it only takes 15 minutes by sea cat and you do not need the car.
