Hi my name is Lynn I live with my husband in the Uk but enjoy our holidays still in Lanzarote.
LYNN purchased this Villa in 2004
Why LYNN chose Puerto Calero
I purchased the land back in 2004 when a friend of ours told us that there was going to be a new marina and hotel with restaurants and bars being developed. We didnt build till much later and completed in 2013 that's when i decided to rent it out as a holiday rent so others could enjoy Lanzarote and what the island has to offer.
What makes this Villa unique
This is a fabulous property in a sort after location. Puerto Calero is the jewel of Lanzarote just a stones throw from the busy resort of Puerto del Carmen. You can enjoy a relaxing holiday or take part in the many exciting activities thats available here on the island. the choice is yours!
Pool / Spa
Lovely villa, just as photos shown, clean, well kept and in good location to amenities. Pool cleaned a few times while we were there, we all loved the pool. Good welcome pack was left for us, milk, butter bread etc. Just a 10 - 15 minute walk to marina and restaurants, owner easy to contact and very helpful, we would certainly recommend this property and hope to return again very soon.
Thank you so much Margaret for your review it means a lot to me knowing you all had a super holiday, I try very hard to make my villa as relaxing as possible so all feed back is important so I can get things right.
I look forward to see you all there again next year.
Lovely villa, lovely location
Lovely spacious villa with all the facilities needed. Separate kitchen was a pleasant surprise and the drying area for swimming clothes and towels was very handy. It was a 15 minute walk down to the marina with a little supermarket and a good selection of restaurants, we had many a pleasant hour looking at the boats and enjoying an ice cream / cocktail. We also caught the ferry boat to Puerto de Carmen for a day on the beach and lunch. We hired a car so were able to visit the main attractions on the island, Volcano to the west and Caves to the east, the villa is fairly centrally located so easy to reach all parts of the island. The rating would have been 5 stars, but for a few things. It would have been nice to a welcome pack, even just tea, milk and bread but nothing was provided. The information pack was a little sparse and the kids would have liked some games to play with. Other than that it was a superb villa in a very nice location.
Thank you Jake for your review I always welcome feed back as without it I can't put things right .
I will look into a welcome back my old cleaners used to put tea coffee and water out but it looks like this new company doesn't so will have a chat about that also will look into more games for the children as we do have a lot of families staying.
All the information was in the draw in the hall but maybe have been moved will also sort that out.
I'm so glad you enjoyed and hopefully you will return.
Casa Puffin is in a wonderfully relaxing location, great amenities within walking distance. Lovely upmarket marina with wonderful restaurants and cafes. The villa itself is very good value for money, no needs for aircon as the positioning of the windows enables the breeze to flow through the house. We rented a car as there were five of us, great and cheap way to get around the island. This was our first owners direct booking as we usually book through a management company, I have to say that Lynn was great and dealt with all our queries. We had such a good experience that we have booked to holiday again at casa puffin in July this year. The villa is exactly as the description/pictures.
Thank you for your lovely review I'm so glad you all enjoyed the island and the villa. Also thank you for your feedback it's very important for us to know if there's anything we can do to improve the villa and your stay so have taken on board your points and we will be going over to replace and check on what needs doing. I hope you all enjoy your return in July and please let me know if there is anything we can do to make your stay even more enjoyable. Thank you once again
building site next door
We booked this holiday villa in puerto calero it was described as quiet and in a very quiet location.
When we turned up they are building a villa next door to it!
All we heard was banging, grinding, wagons turning up, dust everywhere.
Totally shocked and appalled by the owner not telling us about it.
We contacted Lynn the owner but she was no help at all.
Apparently they have been working on it off and on for over 18 months now, and i would say there is at least another 2 years of work left at that rate.
For the first few days we just tried to blank the noise out, then after around a week they started up on the roof and with full view into our pool area.
We wanted a nice quiet holiday a bit out of the way and this villa was described as just that.
Also the pool leaked and had to be filled up by me daily which took hours.
Overall Lynn should of made renters aware of the building site next door.
Even Chris the pool guy who is actually a builder was able to describe to us exactly what was going on next door and totally agreed with us that it was not acceptable.
I am very disappointed with the way Lynn has dealt with our complaint.
This review is honest and just stating the facts.
We have videos and photos of exactly what went on.
I wish i was here writing a different review on how amazing the stay was but unfortunately this is not the case.
If the building work was not going on next door the review would of been excellent.
my reply to marks review. yes there was some noise on the built villa next door this I was unaware of until I received marks email. I contacted the neighbours who told me that there was a few alterations going on and it was only a couple of afternoons. I emailed mark to offer him a free week later in the year to which he sent a very rude and threatening email of which I had many he was wanting a very large amount of compensation, he even got friends to try and book the villa and get my personal details of which I do not give out for security reasons. the pool has a small leak it is very safe. we will be getting repaired as soon as I have a block free. I have a pool man that goes round every other day to check so mark did not have to fill the pool he offered to do so to the pool man who by the way is not a builder and did not agree with mark he just did not want to get involved as he felt very intimidated by the group. I see that mark did not write about all the damage he left so I will they broke every toilet, broke the shower, they broke the lamp in the living room pictures on the wall they stained all the bed lining the list goes on of which I have to pay for not mark if you look at the review 4/5 that was the party who arrived the day after Marks left and I have had emails from the groups that have been since saying what a lovely time they have had. im sure im not the first mark has done this to and im sure I will not be the last thank you for reading my reply im a far person and only want you all to have a super time on your holiday.
The villa description was extremely accurate in all aspects. Our party was made up of of two families of four with older children. We found it to be very spacious and comfortable with a well equip kitchen. The pool, although quite small was a hit with the children as was quite deep. It was cleaned several times in the two weeks we were there. The villa is in a very quiet area which allowed for a very relaxed holiday, yet within easy access of all amenities. A short 5 -10 minute walk finds you at a marina which has a small supermarket and many restaurants and bars. There is a water taxi into the larger resort of Puerto del Carmen or you can take a regular taxi for only 10 euros.
While away we had to contact the owner who responded very quickly. I would like to return and would recommend this property to others.
Thank you Tina for your review I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay I'm also sorry that a few things had to be sorted why you was there this was due to the damage guest before had done and the fast turn around between them leaving and you arriving but it was all sorted in a short time and I thank you all for your pataince on that matter. I'm very happy that you may return again and thank you all for choosing Casa Puffin

Lynn's villa is charming. Clean, modern, and with all mod cons. Lovely to have UK and Irish TV - and fast unlimited internet! The master suite is super with lovely views to the ocean. Very comfortable and spacious. Lynn's customer service was speedy and very friendly. A 10 minute walk to the bars and marinas - quiet location. What can I say? Perfect! We'll be back!
