About Chris Harrison

The photo is of our daughter Rachel. We holidayed in Playa Blanca when she was 9 months old and emigrated here 11 months later.

Chris Harrison purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Chris Harrison chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

After searching pretty well the whole of Playa Blanca we came back to the very first property we viewed. The complex has a wonderfully peaceful and friendly feel to it and is perfectly located. We purchased Casa Julia in 2007 and then the adjacent property, Casa Rachel, the following year.

What makes this bungalow unique

We actually lived in Casa Rachel until we simply ran out of room for all of Rachel's toys and equipped it as our own home. Few people use the dishwasher but appreciate that we have tried to provide every home comfort. Living in Playa Blanca enables us to offer a personal touch to our guests and to be on hand if needed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely bungalow with absolutely everything you need on hand. TV great meant we could curl up on the sofa - just like home. Chris & Julia - thanks for sorting everything and so nice to meet you both. Can recommend La Gondola on the seafront and Cevantes on the main strip - mixed paella divine. Thanks again.

As usual a very enjoyable stay.

A very enjoyable stay. The bungalow is fully equipped and comfortable. Chris is always on hand should there be any problems. Only a short walk to town and a good Spa supermarket at the end of the road. Have already booked for next March.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped apartment in a convenient location in Playa Blanca. We loved sitting on the shaded terrace for breakfast and just for relaxing. Enjoyed the pool too and not far to walk to Flamingo Beach. Our only slight issue was that we had expected two bedrooms whereas the second bedroom was only really suitable for a child, but we were able to separate the king size bed into two twin beds, with the kind help of Chris, and share the bedroom. We're good friends so it didn't really bother us too much though.

Great location and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation was as described and owners have thought of and provided all necessities. Clean, well maintained compact apartment in central location - 2 min walk to promenade. Would def recommend this property for couples or those with a young child. We would return to this property when we next holiday in playa blanca.

Excellent value for money

  • 5 of 5

The three best things about this bungalow:

It offers great value for money. Everything is provided for a comfortable stay: All mod cons, such as a washer, a dishwasher and a UK channels on the TV.

It's in a brilliant location; 5 minutes walk away from a large Spar supermarket and a couple of bars (had a couple of great meals in the Irish Anvil). Another 5 minutes walk and you are virtually in the centre of Playa Blanca, yet the bungalow is in a quiet, peaceful complex.

And the last thing, is the wonderful terraced veranda which means you are sheltered at all times from the incoming sea breeze.

Would I visit this bungalow again? Yes definately!
