Playa Blanca Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

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

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

Well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent a week here and are already talking about a return visit.

The villa is perfectly located near the centre of Playa Blanca, and over the road from a supermarket.

The estate is small and secure with a lovely pool which we had all to ourselves for the whole week.

Loved that there was a Bluetooth device for me to play my music from my phone.

The beds and pillows were very good, and I say that as someone who is very fussy about these things.

We were both so relaxed and happy during the holiday, and would like to thank Therese for allowing us to use her beautiful villa. Will be back soon.....

Just the job Stay: 24 Sept - 4 Oct

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the villa and all the arrangements made by the owner to make sure we had easy access - the directions and instructions were spot on. The small development is very secure, attractive, well maintained, and well placed for the local facilities. We particularly liked Flamingo beach area. The main centre of the village is a short walk along a promenade and we enjoyed having a drink watching all that went on in the harbour from "Popeye's".

The villa is well appointed and comfortable. We thought the quality of the bed linen and towels were excellent. These were changed half way through our visit. It was a treat to have swimming towels provided. The patio area has easy chairs, sunbeds and table and chairs for outside eating. For those who cook at the villa there is also a clean barbecue. The swimming pool is a good size and was quiet when we were there but the water was cooled by the breeze. We did use it.

We had hired a car so that we could explore the island. However, if you did not want to do that it is easy to book excursions. We would thoroughly recommend a visit to the National Park - Timanfaya, the village of El Golfo and Haria, where you can visit Cesar Manriques' house.

There are many places to have a meal. Our favaourite was 'Bahia' behind Flamingo Beach, also good were 'Casa Joachin' in the same area and 'Volcan' on the Promenade behind the Spar shop.

We would recommend this property to all and it is obviously popular as many revisit ( the Visitors Book says so).

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

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 for airport transfers and they are suberb , on time and very cheap.

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