About Helen Longworth

We are a family of four and bought Villa Ruby as a holiday home for ourselves. We own a mechanical garage in Yorkshire and I also work for Boots. My son is now working with Dave and my daughter wants to be a make up artist. Been busy we made the decision to rent but left the villa as if it was still ours alone. This means it is very well equipped in regards other rental's.

Helen Longworth purchased this villa in 2005

Why Helen Longworth chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We picked this property because of its location. While been very safe as its in a residential area it is within walking distance to everything you will need either being supermarket ,Marina, beach or town but also by a large hotel and bus route.

What makes this villa unique

unique benefits are the privacy of your own Villa while experiencing a community feeling alongside the holiday atmosphere

Great for a family stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay in Villa Ruby, what a lovely villa ideal for families or a couple who like space.

Upon arrival the villa was clean tidy with some provisions in the fridge to start our holiday, the shop at the top of the road is a 5 min walk and is reasonably priced so no need to trek miles for provisions.

The Villa is very spacious with a good size kitchen and dinning room or a good size table to eat on the patio everything is at hand for you to enjoy your holiday. The pool was nice and warm and well maintained.

The villa is about a 15 min walk to the marina and then a further 30 mins to town which is a nice stroll along the seafront.

I would recommend Villa Ruby to anyone and we will return next year given the chance, should you decide to book this Villa you wont be disappointed.

We have just returned from a two week stay at villa ruby and already want to go back! The villa was amazing, it was very welcoming and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us.

The location of the villa was great with it only being a short walk from the marina or for lazy days there was a bus at the end of the road. There is plenty of things to do and we didn't feel like hiring a car was a necessity to be able to explore, even with two young children.

The marina has lots of places to eat and the market of a Wednesday and Saturday is definitely a must.

Couldnt recommend villa ruby enough.

Lovely villa and surrounding

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 6 day stay. The villa had everything we needed and the pool was perfect for the children - lovely and warm with the heating.

The villa is really close to the prom and it's only 10/15 mins to the marina. The view from the master bedroom is amazing- all the way over the sea and marina.

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

Myself and husband spent a lovely 10 days here relaxing and having a nice time. The villa is everything it says in the description and is clean and comfortable. We had really good service from the owners who were only a call away if needed ( which we didn't).

There is a shop at end of the road which you can get everything you need. It takes about 10 - 15 mins to walk to marina or about 30 mins to walk to playa blanca. The restaurants are nice in marina but tend to be a bit cheaper in playa blanca for similar food. We really enjoyed ASIA on front of playa blanca. Taxi is about 4 euros back to villa.

Enjoyed it so much we wanted to come back in september but unfortunately its booked up. Helen was so good she even looked at places we could stay to help us.

Much larger than the photos imply

  • 4 of 5

My family (2 adults, 3 teenagers) stayed here for Christmas 2015. We'd not been away for Christmas before so were a little apprehensive about being outside the UK, but really enjoyed our stay at Villa Ruby.

We had hired a car for the week, and the villa is really easy to find, and the roads in Lanzarote are much better than here in the UK, and there are so few of then you can’t really get lost.

At the end of the short street is a HiperDino, which is open 365 days of the year, and has freshly baked bread too. The marina is a short walk away where you can find numerous restaurants and shops. There is a weekly market too which was a great and inexpensive place to buy gifts and souvenirs.

In the other direction are the beaches of Papagayo, you can walk along the coast, or drive (semi off road) into the nature reserve (3 Euros per vehicle). It was quite windy on Christmas Day, but didn’t stop us of other tourists heading into the sea for a swim!

The villa is much larger than the photos imply. There was more than ample space for the five of us to dine both inside and out, watch TV, of splash around in the heated pool.

The complimentary bread, milk and juice was a nice touch too, especially as we arrived quite late and after the shops were closed.

There is Air Conditioning in the main bedroom and the lounge but these were seldom used, as being winter the sun set was around 6pm. Though I can imagine that in the summer then lounge would get very warm as it’s in the sun most of the day.

The only negatives, were the water pressure for the showers - they did take a long time to get warm. And we would have benefited for an extra set of towels. That said – we had a great time a hope to return for more than a week next time around.

Villa Ruby is a beautiful family owned villa located two minutes walk from the beautiful prom that leads you to the marina and onto Playa Blanca town itself.Playa Blanca town is a upmarket resort. The sea front is an array of busy bars cafes, restaurants and shops whilst the town is slightly quieter. Dorada beach is the fun spot where you can enjoy the faster pace of life with jet skis, banana boats and ringos ect.The newly opened Marina which is a fifteen minute stroll from the villa is the perfect place for a romantic lunch or dinner with its waterfront restaurants and bars. Children love feeding the fish here and are always made to feel welcome. A market is also held here every wed and sat morning. Treat yourself to a boat trip or just sit and watch the world go by. The harbour in Playa Blanca also runs ferry across to Fuerteventura throughout the day. If this is not enough then you can hire a car and explore the rest of the island with all the wonders it has to offer
