Overview

About the property

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. A 50 metre stroll takes you to the harbour where colourful fishing boats land their daily catch and the ferry can whisk you across to Fuerteventura in just 12 minutes. With a supermarket, banks and restaurants also just 50 metres from your door, you can nip out and be enjoying a delicious bottle of wine on your terrace within 5 minutes and probably all for less than a fiver. Being in such an excellent location also means you are within five minutes walk of both Playa Blanca beach and Flamingo beach - the choice is yours.

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 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

Early winter hols 09

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

Fantastic Quite Holiday Location, everything you need at your fingertips.

  • 5 of 5

A great Apartment, everything you need is at hand, with all the little niceties you would want on holiday already at the apartment such as hairdryer, Iron and ironing board, several beach size towels this all saves you weight on your travel bags. Comfortable furniture to site around on after a hard day in the sun soaking up ray’s and having fun. A short walk to all the amenities, bars, restaurants, and shops. Quite area with easy access to the pool which is very close and hardly used by the residents. The owner was great sending us all the information we would need before arriving, very helpful indeed. The directions by road from the airport were simple to use. Overall, a very lovely friendly place to have a very relaxing enjoyable holiday, “a home from home”. We would go there again.

Great location in fabulous Playa Blanca

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in Las Terracitas with my daughter, sister and her 2 children. We had the most wonderful 10 nights, the best thing being the location of the complex which is gated and secure and very central to all the bars, restaurants, shops and beach. The bungalow was clean, beds were changed half way through our stay, and it was well equipped, having everything we needed including a bluetooth speaker, washing machine and Tassimo coffee machine. Contact details and instructions on the location and keys to the property were all sent well in advance of our departure from the UK. If anything was disappointing it was that the pool was not heated and colder than we expected even though it was late May, and the double bed in the triple room was slightly uncomfortable (according to my sister), but other than that we will be booking our return trip again for next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Tanya, thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. I have taken your feedback on board and added a new memory foam topper to the double. Sorry but I cannot change the pool despite trying to persuade the community to add solar heating! I will be posting new photos soon of lots of other changes all which really do enhance the house. I hope we see you again soon. Therese
