Beautiful villa set in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Amazing villa in a beautiful and perfect location. There were 8 of us staying in the property (4 adults and 4 children) and we could not of chosen a more perfect villa for our holiday. The villa was a great size and very private with an incredible pool. The owner was very helpful and always available to answer any questions that arose prior to our arrival. Within minutes of leaving the house you could see the sea! Just a short walk to shops, restaurants, bars and beaches. We didn't want to leave. If there was one criticism it was that the house was very warm. No air con just fans that just blew around hot air. Being there during one of their hottest months was a little uncomfortable when inside on an evening.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for doing a review and for your lovely comments about my villa, that was very kind of you, thank you. Glad the villa was perfect for your family holiday and you found the villa very spacious for all the family to enjoy. Thank you for saying the pool was incredible and very private. The villa is in a great location and as you said within minutes of leaving the house you could see the sea, just a short walk to the shops and beach which is perfect if you don’t want to hire a car. I’m sorry the villa was warm in the evening for you, which was a shame, as normally the fans are sufficient enough to keep the rooms cool but I think the weather was exceptionally hot this August. Once again many thanks for your lovely comments about my villa, this means a lot to me and I really appreciate you taking the time to write about how amazing you thought my villa was, thank you so much. Very Best Regards, Barbara

Fabulous! Spacious and the best villa we have stayed in .

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa . The owners have put a lot of thought into making sure their guests are comfortable and looked after .

We arrived and we got the wow factor at the sure space the villa has ! So clean and well presented. Three large double bedrooms and has recently had a new kitchen and shower room refit . It has a large pool area and a large BBQ area . A gem was the courtyard which had a room with the washing machine , a must !

When we arrived there was water and wine in the fridge , how lovely of Barbara and Pete to think of that ! Made us think "what a lovely touch! " The villa was a home from home with wifi and fantastic satellite tv . Lots of English channels and box sets and movies . Great to keep the kids entertained whilst getting ready to go out .

The villa is a short walk to Playa Blanca central and the beach . We loved walking down after our morning swim . There are supermarkets which you can get what you need . We preferred Dino , much more choice than the Spar .

Lots of eateries and shops on the beach front . Lots to keep you occupied in Playa Blanca and I'm really missing it and only home a day.

We travelled to Puerto Calero and took the underwater submarine . What a once of a life time experience which I won't forget .

All in all a fantastic holiday and made perfect due to the villa exceeding expectations. Thank you Barbara and Pete !

Fantastic Villa for families

  • 5 of 5

This really is a great villa and is as the others described a home from home. Everything we needed and more were provided, beach towels, beach mats, Sat TV, film database etc. The pool is the biggest we have encountered in villa rentals and was warm all the time.

The kitchen was brand new( we may have been the 1st to use it) and had everything for indoor and outdoor catering. The main ensuite also looked new but I'm not sure as the villa was very clean in general.

Whilst I don't know the area that well I would assume the villa's location is amongst the best in Playa Blanca. Its 7 minutes walk to the main strip and the surrounding area is very quiet and secure. All in all we had a great time and we will definitely be back to use the villa again.

Unusually there are no negatives and I wouldn't change anything about the villa.

Thank you Barbara for your hospitality and your help during the booking process.

Owner's Response: Dear Keith, Thank you so much for your review and your lovely comments about my villa, its very much appreciated, thank you. I'm so glad you enjoyed all the facilities the villa provided for you and your family's stay. Glad you enjoyed the warm pool and I pride myself on keeping the pool area secure with a lockable door, knowing it's safe for small children. The brand new kitchen was finished while I was there in June and very pleased how stunning it now looks and ready for guests to enjoy. Also, while I was there, I updated the en-suite with a new sink unit, toilet and now have lots more cupboard space for all your toiletries. Thank you for saying the villa was very clean, this is down to new Villa Management, Tracy who is doing a fantastic job looking after my villa, thank you Tracy. Yes, the villa location is amongst the best in Playa Blanca, a very quiet and secure area and as you say, only 7 minutes walk to the main strip. Really glad you had a great time and thank you for saying you will definitely be back to use the villa again, that says it all when guests are happy with the villa and want to go back, thank you for that. Really look forward to seeing you again and thank you once more for your lovely comments about my villa, it means a lot, thank you. Very Best Wishes to you and your family, Barbara

Great villa in a good location

  • 5 of 5

Great location within an easy walk to Playa Blanca centre shops and restaurants, in a residential area but the surrounding roads were cul-de- sacs and very quite. Arrangements for arrival and leaving were all fine.

Pool was great, we just caught the end of the heated season. Really liked the walled pool and garden areas, completely private, there was even another small courtyard so larger groups could use separate areas at times if the wished.

The accommodation is good. The kitchen is becoming a little dated but we understand the owners have a programme of refurbishment planned. One of the bathrooms has already been upgraded to an excellent standard.

If we were to make suggestions:-

- provide pool towels

- a small lightweight outside table that could be used in the courtyard to have breakfast in the early morning sun

- change the pull handle on the outside kitchen door to a normal lever handle so you can't lock yourself out by mistake if the door closes on the latch with you on the outside, as if I would do such a thing!

This is the third OD villa we have stayed at in Lanzarote and the best. We toured other prospective villas for our next visit and none were as good as this one. So we are likely to be back, maybe with some more of our family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review, this is much appreciated thank you. So glad you enjoyed the privacy of the pool and the surrounding garden areas. I take on board your comments about the kitchen and continue to update the villa all the time and you are correct in saying I will be having a complete refurbishment of the kitchen and this will be starting the 24th May 2017 which will be beautiful when completed and for guests to enjoy. I do provide pool/beach towels for guests to use and I take on board your suggestions which I do try and aim to put these things in place once it has been bought to my attention, so thank you for that. That was very kind of you to say my villa was the best you have stayed in, it means a lot and says it all, so thank you. I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Kind Regards Barbara

Fantastic Villa in a Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious villa with a large very private swimming pool.

The close proximity to Playa Blanca centre meant that we could use my wifes electric wheel chair and walk into the town without worrying about the car.

This was a real home from home and we spent many happy hours around the pool, reading books and taking cooling dips in the pool when the sun got too hot.

Matt and Alison offered great support while we were there and Barbara the owner was very approachable during the booking process.

We spent a month in the villa and have already booked 5 weeks for next year. I would highly recommend this villa.

Thank you for a lovely villa and a great holiday.
