2 bedroom, 1 bathroom Sleeps 5

Spacious bungalow set in beautiful gardens on a small secure, gated community offering all modern conveniences including streamed TV with all BBC and ITV channels. Unlimited Wifi . Bluetooth stereo. The swimming pool is 25 metres from your private garden gate. Dine or sunbathe on your own garden terrace whilst enjoying the tranquility of the area.

About Therese Oliver

I love Playa Blanca! I first visited the island of Lanzarote in 1978 and have been back every year since. When I first stayed in Playa Blanca it was a tiny fishing village with one shop and three restaurants. Street lighting and pathways did not exist. Over the years I have seen PB grow with both the pros and cons but still love the area and visit at least 3 times a year.

Therese Oliver purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Therese Oliver chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

This was actually our second property purchase in Playa Blanca as so often friends wanted to come and stay and there was never enough room hence we bought Tres Hermanas (three sisters). We were looking for something centrally located and within walking distance to everything and this just fitted the bill! Yes it is a traditional old style Canarian house but that is why we like it. If you are looking for the ultra modern new build then sorry but you will have to go out of town and get a car!

What makes this bungalow unique

Location, location, location. Everything is within easy walking distance yet with complete peace and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Therese



I hope you are well, I’ll post the key back tomorrow – I’m so sorry for the delay, its just been a bit mad since we got home!



Also, I just wanted to thank you very much for letting us stay in your lovely bungalow, it was lovely Therese, absolutely lovely!

You have a gem of a place and I just wish we’d stayed longer! We’ve stayed in Playa Blanca before, as you know, so it is familiar to us which was what I wanted for a ‘sneaky week’ to celebrate Sean’s birthday and your lovely bungalow just added to the relaxation...

We did struggle with getting the air conditioning to heat but Janet sorted this very quickly by dropping a heater off for us, bless her! And the fluffy throws were ideal for the evenings.



So – all in all, a lovely, relaxing and enjoyable holiday – thank you. I do hope you are still renting throughout the year and Christmas and we would love to return so no doubt I will be in touch!



Thanks again

Great property, all as advertised. Top location, quiet & secure in a small residential area, but yet only a very short walk (on flat surfaces) to the harbour & village centre. Ideal for the less mobile or those with small children & buggies etc.

Great owners, we had originally booked for 2008 but owing to airline failure we couldn't travel, but they very kindly held over our booking to the following year. How many property owners would do that?

They can also help with airport transport arrangements.

Playa Blanca is clean, with a good choice of beaches, restaurants, bars & shops. Ideal for a quiet holiday for couples & young families. A car is not necessary, there's a good local bus service plus a service to Arrecife as well.

Also, theres's a nice walk along the front to the Marina where there are more restaurants etc, or for the more energetic a longer walk to the lighthouse.

The all important weather was excellent as well!

We will return.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to be able to work things out for you! These days you need a holiday after you book a holiday as the booking process seems to become more and more traumatic! Thank you for describing Playa Blanca so beautifully and confirming everything we believe ourselves. Therese

Wonderful 2nd Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful 2nd stay in Playa Blanca and 2nd time in Las Terracitas. We travelled with 2 adults, two16 years olds and one 4 year old and there was plenty of room for us. Once again we had the pool to ourselves most days, and the weather was fantastic. The beaches are a short walk away and the ferry to Fuertaventura is just down the road. We used the local bus service to travel to Puerto Del Carmen one day (30 mins & €8 for the 5 of us) and walked to the nearby waterpark, Aqualava on another day. The property itself has been under going a makeover and looks great. All was very comfortable, especially the beds. Therese is wonderful to deal with and provided all the info we needed. Our fridge was also stocked up with a few essentials as our flight was very late getting in on the night we arrived. We had a little trouble with the toilet and Janet, who looks after the property, got it sorted straight away for us. Fantastic service. Restaurants in the local area area great and we enjoyed a couple of drinks in the Irish Anvil, across the main road. Overall we had a great stay here and will definitely be back to Playa Blanca next year.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This Bungalow is in the perfect Location for all the amenities in Playa Blanca. beach, shops , port, restaurants all just a few minutes walk away. A further 10 minutes walk gets you to The new water park , Aqualava. And Rubicon Marina is a 30 min walk or about 10 mins on The Local Bus that runs every 30 mins morning till night, the bus stop outside Casas del Sol. This bus will take you from one end of PB to the other, or taxi's are very cheap.

The Bungalow its self has every amenity that you are likely to need, plentiful hot water, good hob and oven, lots of utencils etc, air con, fans, iron/board, washing machine, wifi, dvd player , radio, Sky tv channels. Comfy beds and bedding. The complex of Las Terracitas is very well maintained and extremly quiet for a very restful holiday.

Dealing with Therese is a pleasure, all information is supplied , all questions quckly answered and maps and keys and access is very easy. We used Lastminute.com for airport transfers and they are suberb , on time and very cheap.

We will be back, as the weather in January was fantastic... ....

Great Stay in Playa Blanca

  • 4 of 5

Just back from a wonderful stay in Playa Blanca. Las Terracitas is in an ideal location, just 5 mins from the main prom with all its restaurants and 2 mins from the local Spar and Irish Anvil bar. We had the pool to ourselves most days, and the weather was fantastic. The pool is great if you're a swimmer but we had a 3 year old with us and there isn't a kiddies pool to cater for him, so one of us had to be in the water with him at all times. A few of the neighbours we did meet were very friendly and pointed us in the right direction for nice restaurants. The beach is a short walk away and the ferry to Fuertaventura is just down the road. The property itself is a fine size, large bedrooms and a large living / dining area. All were very comfortable, expecially the beds. There is plenty of space outside also, however the sunbeds needed a wash down before we could use them as they were quite grubby. Overall we had a great stay here and will definitely be back to Playa Blanca.

Great Christmas break.

  • 5 of 5

We found the accommodation to be very comfortable, airy and spacious throughout. The living area is a pretty good size and the leather sofas were so very comfortable-which is not something you can always guarantee when renting holiday accommodation I find. The bedrooms really are a good size too, just as stated. The only drawback was that we could have done with some extra blankets as the winter nights can get a bit chilly. Our neighbours from Tres Hermanas felt the chill too as they came round to ask us if we had any extra blankets so it wasn't just us. However, we did text the cleaner to ask if she could provide us with some which resolved the problem eventually. Another great advantage was the TV package which although does not have ITV, BBC etc, it does have numerous English language channels so there really is nothing to complain about there, you're spoiled for choice! We were out most of the time but it was nice to be able to come back and unwind with a little tv just before bedtime. The terrace area was very pleasant with a very nice seating area perfect for reading a book as it's a very tranquil complex and very little noise or disturbances. We went to a number of restaurants but if I was going to recommend one in particular for a special night, it would be, "Romantica" which was excellent. Definitely on the more expensive side but well worth it. We had a very pleasant stay in this property and it is very good value for money,

Everything you need

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at La Terricitas and Numero Uno in particular for a week in April. The contact with the owner Therese right from the word go was very efficient. Everything was very straight forward and the directions to find the property with excellent maps etc. made it very stress free when we arrived. The property has everything that you need for a self catering holiday. We particularly liked the large outside space and terrace. With mixed weather while we were there it was also useful to be able to use the air conditioning as a heater for one night too when it became particularly chilly. The property is located in an ideal location in Playa Blanca, within walking distance of beaches, bars, restaurants and supermarkets. We would recommend this property for good value budget accomodation ideal for couples or small families. We had no problem with the neighbour not talking to us either!! Sometimes you need to respect that residents don't particularly want to be chatty at the first sight of new holidaymakers moving in and just let them speak when they are ready to.

Playa Blanca is situated at the southern end of Lanzarote and enjoys its own micro climate being less windy and 2-3 degrees warmer than the north.

Tres Hermanas has an excellent location just across from the port where many boat excursions are available including ferry and day trips to the island of Fuerteventura.

A large well stocked supermarket is within 3 minutes walk of the house as are bars and restaurants.

The beautiful safe beach of Playa Flamingo is approximately 5 minutes walk with its promenade lined with restaurants. A few minutes further away you will find the recently built waterpark ideal for youngsters.
