Villa in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands

About the area

Coast/Beach
There are 3 beautiful yellow sandy beaches in Playa Blanca - the busy Dorada beach with water sports, the central Playa Blanca beach and the lovely Playa Flamingo beach which is only a 7 minute walk away fom us. This has sea walls which restrict the strength of the tides and make it perfect for children. A 15 minute car journey takes you to the world renowned, unspoiled Papagayo beaches. These special beaches can also be accessed by a boat trip from the harbour,including a glass bottomed boat.

Golf
There is an 18 hole golf course at Tias, near Puerto del Carmen built in 2009 and located roughly between the airport and Playa Blanca and with views of the ocean. It is a 20 minute drive away. Facilities include buggies, trollies, a driving range, pitching green, putting green, golf lessons, club hire, bar and restaurant. Take the LZ2 from Playa Blanca to Tias and then exit onto the LZ-505. Then look for the signs to Lanzarote Golf Resort. There is a second golf course in Costa Teguise, which is a 35 minute drive.

How to get there
Arrecife airport is a 30 mins drive. The villa can also be accessed by taxis or mini bus. Car hire is available for collection at the airport or can be delivered to the villa at any time during your stay. CAR HIRE IS NOT NECESSARY as all is within walking distance, but it CAN BE RECOMMENDED in order to explore this unique island with it's special marriage of nature and art. Everywhere is within an hour's travel on roads that are generally excellent.

Distances
It is only a 7 min. walk to the beautiful, child friendly Flamingo Beach. Here you will find a variety of restaurants, shops and supermarkets. It is a further 12 mins. walk along the coastal promenade to the harbour, the town centre... then the Rubicon marina. A 2 mins. car journey (3/4 mile) takes you to the Spar supermarket next to the harbour, bike hire and other shops and restaurants. It is a 10 min. walk to the right to La Mulata with it's smart bars and varied fabulous restaurants.

Further Details
It is good to explore Timanfaya National park with its coach tour around the volcanoes and lava fields, camel rides and restaurant which cooks using geo-thermal heat.

You could also visit the beautiful village of Yaiza – the only lasting village to survive the last volcanic eruptions of 280 years ago or the quaint fishing village of El Golfo with its volcanic crater filled with green sea water, black sands and wierd rock formations.

From the villa take 30 minutes to climb the neighbouring extinct Red Volcano for fabulous views and walk inside the rim.

There is a new water park just a 2 min walk away.

There is go-karting 20 minutes drive away near the airport.

There are frequent ferry trips from the harbour to the nearby island of Fuerteventura which take 20 minutes or try the glass bottomed boat to the renowned Papagayo beaches.Or, maybe the yellow submarine.

Amenities, shops, restaurants, supermarkets and banks are within walking distance.

There are local markets, diving, cycling, tennis, sailing, deep sea fishing, wind surfing and segway tours in Playa Blanca.

"a wonderful week!"

We were a party of Mum, Dad, Daughter, Son in Law, Son, Daughter in Law and 7 month old Grandson looking for some fun in the sun and found it here at Casa Rachel. We found this villa perfect for our needs, extremely well equipped for a family holiday and very welcoming. I would recommend it highly and hope to return someday. 6 adults and a baby put some pressure on the hot water supply at times, but it was something we learned to handle! The owners and local management team were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for a great experience

Response to review:
Thank you so much...Casa Rachel loves to accommodate extending families, and to facilitate those oh so precious memories...you will always be very welcome.

"Hard to Beat This One!"

Di & I are regular visitors to Lanzarote and have stayed in many of the villas in Los Mojones (Puerta Del Carmen) & Playa Blanca. Have to say this is one of the best. Why? Because of the combination of lovely homely touches in decor, art work & furnishings, the fabulous garden (very hard to achieve in the Canaries) with its choice of shady and sunbathing areas and of course that lovely spot with the view out to Fuertaventura. All this and air conditioning too! Like I say, hard to beat. Thoroughly recommended.

Response to review:
Many thanks for your appreciation: you are obviously kindred spirits, and will always be very welcome at Casa Rachel. We do endeavour to appeal to all our guests, be they large groups or just a couple in search of a bit of tranquillity in the sunshine: we are delighted that you have enjoyed your holiday in our villa.

"Our Holiday 2013"

The villa Casa Rachael is beautiful. It is in a great location within walking distance to the shops, resturants and the sea. The villa itself had everything a family could possibly need for a week stay. The villa is spacious and my family all felt comfortable during the stay. The villa had some amazing views and was shielded from the wind. The pool was a nice size, although a little cold....we did travel end of September. The children didnt mind the temperature of the pool but it was too cold for me. Overall all we had a great holiday and the villa was one i would deffinately like to stay in again. The owners are lovely and the management team are good. Great holiday.

Response to review:
We are both delighted that you have had a great holiday relaxing and having fun at our very special home in the sun: you will all be welcome to come again. The Casa Rachel magic seems to appeal to all ages. Kids don't feel cold when they're having fun, do they ! Never the less, it IS worth noting that we keep the temperature of the pool at 28 to 29 degrees ALL YEAR ROUND, which is good for most guests; however, if it isn't warm enough for you, then a word with our excellent management team will sort it out for you. It also helps to roll on the pool cover when not in use, especially during the night, otherwise the temperature can drop by 5 degrees. You are our guests and if we can improve your stay, we prefer you to know right away so we can sort it out...there's no need for any stoicism at Rachel. Most importantly, we want you to enjoy your holiday, and you seem to have managed to do that. Hold on to those memories until the next time !

"a piece of heaven"

A wonderful villa with everything you would need for a family of 4. Comfy beds, beautiful outlook, spacious dining and cooking area. The location was perfect - near to the beach, near to shops, restaurants and use of the local disco at a nearby hotel for the children. The pool was a delight to swim in and the owners obviously love their garden as it is a little oasis.

Response to review:
Thank you for your kind words: it's nice to know that our villa is appreciated. It might be worth noting that with 4 double bedrooms and 2 traditional cots, we can easily accommodate 8 people; so it works well for an extended family or even 2 families sharing.

It's our haven in the sunshine which has ideal space for our extended family to get together in a perfect climate at any time of the year.

Why this location?

We chose this villa because of its peaceful residential location with lovely sea views but also its closeness to beaches, shops and restaurants. As garden lovers we cherish our private and secluded garden with mature planting around its heated swimming pool and hot tub. It provides the perfect place to unwind under the shade of the palm trees and pergola.
