About Barbara Wells

My name is Barbara and I was born in London. My profession is caring for special needs and I find this very satisfying and rewarding work. I love reading romantic books and enjoy talking and listening to people. My favourite sport is playing badminton twice a week. I also enjoy swimming and cycling.

Barbara Wells purchased this villa in 1984

Why Barbara Wells chose Playa Blanca

We bought the villa over 34 years ago when Playa Blanca was a small village and over the years have watched it grow into the beautiful resort it is today. We fell in love with this property because of the sheer size of it and knew it would be ideal for our two young boys at the time to spend the school holidays there, enjoying the spacious surroundings, together with the added security knowing they could play outside the villa because not much through traffic on the roads and is still like that today. We also love the prime location the villa is situated in, close to all amenities and the local beach, approximately 5-8 minutes walk away.

What makes this villa unique

The unique features of my villa are the specious surroundings, sitting on approximately three quarters of an acre of land with beautiful well established gardens together with 3 large terraces, fantastic areas to chill out and enjoy the lovely Lanzarote weather. The villa has its own 10 x 6 meters secluded heated swimming pool with diving board, together with a lockable door for young children’s safety which is peace of mind for all parents.

The property has been completely refurbished since 2016/2017 with a new kitchen, 3 new bathrooms, a stunning re-tiled BBQ area with terracotta tiles keeping in tradition with the Spanish look.

There are 3 beaches in Playa Blanca, the main local one at the front, the dorado beach to the left of the main local beach with sun loungers and the flamingo beach to the right with sun loungers at a small cost.

The bus/coach station is situated at the bottom of Los Calamares for easy access in getting around to all the local attractions; water parks, marina, volcano, ports and ferries.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa, very spacious with numerous patios, neat gardens and warm pool. The villa was beautifully clean and we could tell how much it was cared for and had been invested in which is not always the case. We can thoroughly recommend the villa and hope to return some time.

Very spacious well located villa

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the villa when we arrived for our first ever visit to Lanzarote and we all enjoyed the location. Flatter than some of the other resorts and the villa was a short walk from the town and promenade.

Barbara was very helpful in the booking process and we could not fault the villa. The pool is a good size and choices of outdoor eating areas.

Unfortunately we did not have very warm weather for our last few days and a heater being available was just what was needed.

Would recommend for couples or families.

So glad the booking process run smoothly for you and you could not fault the villa. Very happy you thought the swimming pool was a good size for you and your family to enjoy, as well as the spacious out door eating areas. I'm so sorry you did not have very warm weather for your last few days but happy the radiators that were available came in handy for you. Thank you so much for recommending my villa to couples or families, this comment is very much appreciated, thank you. Very Best wishes, Barbara

Beautiful villa set in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Amazing villa in a beautiful and perfect location. There were 8 of us staying in the property (4 adults and 4 children) and we could not of chosen a more perfect villa for our holiday. The villa was a great size and very private with an incredible pool. The owner was very helpful and always available to answer any questions that arose prior to our arrival. Within minutes of leaving the house you could see the sea! Just a short walk to shops, restaurants, bars and beaches. We didn't want to leave. If there was one criticism it was that the house was very warm. No air con just fans that just blew around hot air. Being there during one of their hottest months was a little uncomfortable when inside on an evening.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for doing a review and for your lovely comments about my villa, that was very kind of you, thank you. Glad the villa was perfect for your family holiday and you found the villa very spacious for all the family to enjoy. Thank you for saying the pool was incredible and very private. The villa is in a great location and as you said within minutes of leaving the house you could see the sea, just a short walk to the shops and beach which is perfect if you don’t want to hire a car. I’m sorry the villa was warm in the evening for you, which was a shame, as normally the fans are sufficient enough to keep the rooms cool but I think the weather was exceptionally hot this August. Once again many thanks for your lovely comments about my villa, this means a lot to me and I really appreciate you taking the time to write about how amazing you thought my villa was, thank you so much. Very Best Regards, Barbara

Fabulous! Spacious and the best villa we have stayed in .

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa . The owners have put a lot of thought into making sure their guests are comfortable and looked after .

We arrived and we got the wow factor at the sure space the villa has ! So clean and well presented. Three large double bedrooms and has recently had a new kitchen and shower room refit . It has a large pool area and a large BBQ area . A gem was the courtyard which had a room with the washing machine , a must !

When we arrived there was water and wine in the fridge , how lovely of Barbara and Pete to think of that ! Made us think "what a lovely touch! " The villa was a home from home with wifi and fantastic satellite tv . Lots of English channels and box sets and movies . Great to keep the kids entertained whilst getting ready to go out .

The villa is a short walk to Playa Blanca central and the beach . We loved walking down after our morning swim . There are supermarkets which you can get what you need . We preferred Dino , much more choice than the Spar .

Lots of eateries and shops on the beach front . Lots to keep you occupied in Playa Blanca and I'm really missing it and only home a day.

We travelled to Puerto Calero and took the underwater submarine . What a once of a life time experience which I won't forget .

All in all a fantastic holiday and made perfect due to the villa exceeding expectations. Thank you Barbara and Pete !

Once again, many thanks for your lovely review and hope to see you again sometime soon. Very Warm Regards, Barbara
