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 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

Early winter hols 09

  • 5 of 5

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

Perfect location, very well appointed bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, no doubt helped by the brilliant weather. The bungalow is very comfortable with every amenity we could think of. It is situated in a quiet corner of a private (gated) complex so is very peaceful yet the shops and sea-front are just a two minute walk away. I hope we can return soon.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location. Our stay in March 2017 meant that we had no neighbours in the semi-attached property next door so was peaceful. However, shame about the other neighbour's dog, Ted (detached bungalow) who likes to bark a lot! Pool was very close by although not used as no beds or stools to put towels on. The property was a good size; only 2 of us stayed so if booking for 4 adults think that 1 bathroom may be insufficient. Very uneconomical in that we had to have the washing machine on daily as only 1 set of bath and hand towels each and 1 pool towel was left. Kitchen has all implements you could think of however is in need of serious attention re upgrade/modernisation and cupboard and tiles needed a good clean, as did outdoor loungers which with a cover would have been fine. Excellent location to local Spar that is open daily and reasonably priced. Gave up on signal on tv, although not that bothered about watching television when on holiday. We would stay again but would prefer more towels and a deeper clean in kitchen area prior to staying.

Lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and our three year old son had a wonderful week at this property. It offered everything we wanted, in a great, secure location. I was particularly impressed with the bathroom, which seemed newly decorated. The beds were all comfortable and the storage space was great. The internet tv was good for adults, but no kids channels, but we'd come prepared and taken plenty of dvds, which were well used as we picked a terrible week weather wise! This was our second visit to Playa Blanca, and we love the area - we would definitely go back for a third time, and a second stay here.

Great holiday had by us all

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this accommodation for one week at the end of December 2016, along with my husband and two young sons. The location is great - very central. We hired a car but you really don't need one unless you want to travel around the island a bit. The property had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The washing machine saved us from taking a load of dirty washing home! Beds were comfortable and we all slept very well. Plenty of towels too, including pool towels. Safe, secure complex. Communication with the owner was excellent from the start to the end of our booking. Would definitely return. Thank you!

Amazing home from home feeling

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was amazing and so homely we settled in straight away. The decor is lovely and the place is so clean and welcoming with the front patio set out lovely and an amazing sun trap. It is really quiet and peaceful which was key with a small baby. Therese even had a Christmas tree and treats waiting for us so it felt like Christmas. Would stay there again for sure, I really can't say enough about the place. Shops a minute walk and port are a five minute walk away and everything is so close and convenient.

Thank you so much for making our Christmas so special!
