You can see the sea in the distance from both of these terraces and also the mountains from the raised terrace.

Great Villa, Quiet Location, Everything you Need!
Me and my wife have had several villa holiday's over the years - this is one of our favourites in terms of furnishings, cleanliness and facilities. The villa had absolutely everything we needed and has very been refurbished to a high standard. The walk in shower is great, beds comfortable and the layout in general was great for us e.g. all on one level (which helped with us having an 8 month old). The TV in the villa is set up with full sky package and lots of on demand movies which was great for me and our son (mainly me) to relax to during afternoon naps whilst my wife enjoyed the sun.
The outdoor space is lovely, with a nice BBQ area and the pool a good size with walk in steps - we had the pool heated which I would definitely recommend. The pool was lovely and clean - the pool cleaner turned up twice during our 8 day stay to keep on top of things.
The location is great, it is set in a very quiet part of puerto del carmen, fairly easy walking distance to the old town and harbour where there are plenty of bars and places to eat - the area is a little hilly but we found it okay and my wife has a bad hip and coped well. Local shops (Spar) and bars are very close by - we tended to get small bits, water and bread etc. from the spar each day but did our main shop at Lidl which is a short drive away. We had a hire car but could have coped without one as we did not really explore the island much during our stay, it was our first holiday with our newborn and we just wanted a relaxing quiet place with everything we needed close by and Carrida certainly delivered. If we are returning to the island in the future we would definitely look into booking this villa again.
Villa de Carrida is in an upmarket, residential part of Puerto del Carmen's Old Town known as Risco Prieto. It is in a very quiet street but still close to amenities.
Local restaurants/ bars: 3 minute walk (300m).
Supermarket: 4 minute walk (350m) to a Spar and an English butcher, Lanzameat. Also a 23-24 minute walk (1.8km) east to Lidl at No. 1, Calle Juan Carlos I. A large well-stocked supermarket with a great meat counter for your BBQ. When paying just ask a staff member to call a taxi for you and they will happily do so.
Harbour: 7 minute walk (500m) down the steps or an 8 minute walk (550m) down the walk-way, which is ideal for prams/buggies or wheelchairs. There are a wide choice of restaurants and bars in the harbour area. Great for lunch, dinner or a drink while an adventure playground keeps the children amused. Lots of choice of boat trips from the harbour, including a dive 50m deep in a submarine, scuba diving and the water taxi to the marina at Puerto Calero.
Biosfera Shopping Plaza: 16-17 minute walk (1.2km) to No. 15, Calle Juan Carlos I. Four floors of shops, restaurants and amusements including Starlight Open Air cinema playing 2 English movies each evening, a billiard and pool hall, crazy golf, and Cine6D virtual reality motion rides.
Beaches: Playa Chica, a 17-18 minute walk (1.4km) is a pretty little cove surrounding by volcanic rocks, which is perfect for snorkelling and diving (a dive school is located here). Other sports enjoyed at Playa Chica are parascending, banana boat rides, single and double jet-skiing, Crazy UFO and Fly-boarding. The main beach, Playa Grande, a 24-26 minute walk (1.9km), is a long stretch of fine-grain sand with calm waters, a very gentle shelf and little current so paddling and swimming are very safe.
Main Beach Road: 20-22 minute walk (1.6km) to the western end of Avenida de las Playas, the long 'strip' of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops of the greatest variety that runs parallel to Playa Grande. Beach-side, the palm-tree lined promenade is perfect for strolling, jogging, cycling on the red brick cycling lane (many bicycle renting places available), or just people watching.
Don’t forget taxi fares are inexpensive in Lanzarote if you don’t want to walk home.
Lanzarote Golf: a public course 8 minutes drive (5km).
Puerto Calero: 30-50 minute walk (4km) go west along the coastal walkway and you will reach the marina at Puerto Calero, where there are lovely restaurants and gorgeous shopping. This walk is very popular with our clients. The restaurants in Puerto Calero are perfect for a long lazy lunch. The water taxi back costs 6 Euros and the last one leaves about 5pm.
