We both work as doctors in the NHS in the UK and to relax, wind down, we wanted our Place In The Sun. UK is a great place to live and work but we do miss the sunshine which is not guaranteed even in the summer. After a bit of research we chose our Place In The Sun in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. Lanzarote is a Canarian island with all the year round sunshine. Even in November, December the average Temp. 20 degree. It has a beautiful, unique volcanic landscape excellent beaches and activities for all groups. After being to property exhibition and speaking to Amanda and Jasmine our choice was clear. Year purchased: June 2012.
Owner/Manager purchased this villa in 2012
We wanted a villa in a quiet relaxing area that is close to the town centre, local beaches and shops. The vast outdoor area ensures we enjoy maximum sunshine by relaxing at the swimming pool and extended sun bathing or shaded area. We all love to have a barbecue at Alfresco or outside dining area. There are restaurants, cafés, bars and supermarkets all within walking distance. The coastal path and bus stop to take us all around the island it is at a walking distance. Playa Blanca is a family friendly resort with excellent beaches, marina, restaurants and a ferry service to neighbouring island of Fuerteventura. This villa has been built by a reputable local builder with marble flooring through out. The upstairs bedroom and balcony have excellent views.
Quiet but not far off from the beaches and town centre. Excellent sea views, heated pool with large terrace, barbecue, alfresco dining. High quality of finish with marble flooring. Leisure facilities include Wifi, Sky HD TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player, games and books. Secure alarm, electric common gates. Only few minutes Walk is Faro Park centre with some nice Italian restaurants, Spanish Tapas ,Cafe Pub, Bakery and 2 minimarkets. The centre has a bus stop with half hourly bus to Playa Blanca town centre and beaches. Not to forget consistent sunshine in this Beautiful island 365 days a year.
The villa is a great size and has everything you need but it could do with some tlc.
The location was a bit to far out for us and a car I would say is essential.
The 10 minute walk (short cut) to the restaurants/shop is ok during day light but at night it wasn't very nice down a dark ally unless you wanted to walk the long way round.
To get to the beach or the shopping it was a bus journey which was cheap enough.
The owner communication was good and always responded to any questions.
But I'm afraid to say we wouldn't go back.
Casa Anandan is a charming well presented villa in a quiet corner of playa Blanca.
The villa upon arrival was immaculate, the welcome pack was much appreciated.
If you are looking for a quiet, family orientated holiday home look no further.
The booking through the owner Raju was simple and straightforward.
We are fairly regular visitors to Lanzarote and we always stay in a rented villa in the Faro Park area and I’ve got to say that Casa Anandam is the best villa that we’ve ever stayed in.
Making the booking was simple and we received lots of helpful advice from Raju prior to our departure from the UK. On arrival we were delighted with the ‘welcome pack’ and the cleanliness and order of the villa was superb.
This is a very spacious villa with absolutely everything that you could ever require to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable break. The swimming pool was excellent and the area of the upstairs balcony was amazing. All rooms were very spacious and the sea view from the upper bedroom was superb.
Management of the villa and cleaning of the pool was efficiently discreet.
The place is well situated close to all of the local amenities and a leisurely stroll to the local restaurants and bars in the April sunshine was a delight. On the other hand, you can be in Playa Blanca either by bus, taxi or your hire car within 10 minutes.
We had a tremendously relaxing two weeks at this villa and of course, we’ll be back to Lanzarote soon, with Casa Anandam as our first choice.
The villa is very spacious and has everything you need for a family holiday. It has a very private pool and garden area and the upstairs balcony benefits from early morning sunshine which continues throughout the day. A great selection of restaurants bars and shops are a short walk away if you don't want to drive into Playa Blanca itself. The property is looked after by a local management company should you need them and the booking process was seamless thanks to owner Raju. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my friends and would return here again if we holiday in Lanzarote.
Excellent villa with everything you could possibly require and very nice outdoor areas. In a quiet, safe location but a car is necessary in my view.
The heated (to 29 C) swimming pool is lovely. We swam every day. It is worth mentioning that the bottom of the pool slopes down steeply at the sides and so is difficult to stand on at the bottom of the steps so weak or non-swimmers need to be aware of this.
There are many activities to be experienced on this beautiful Island and we honestly believe there is something for everybody visiting Lanzarote. The beautiful volcanic landscape contrasts with white sandy beaches and blue sea. The Timanfaya National Park is a must visit as are Cesar Manrique Foundation, Jameos Del Agua and beautiful village of El-Golfo. Whether it is energetic activities such as the Scuba diving school nearby. Golf,
Jet Skis, Banana or Ringo Rides, Paragliding at The Various Water sports Centres( 2 water paks in Playa Blanca) Surf Schools. Go Kart Tracks, Off Road Buggies, Horse or Camel Riding excursions or shopping excursions to both the local shops and markets. Rancho Texas is very popular with kids and families. There are many relaxing sightseeing places including numerous secluded coved beaches with the Papagayo being one of the best only 10 minutes drive from the villa, as well as rocky shorelines for the children to explore with their fishing nets. Ferry from Playa Blanca to Corralejo, Fuerteventura to explore this beautiful island.
