Superb, well equipped villa with secluded garden and heated private pool



Updated: 18-Oct-2016
3 Bedrooms sleeps 6, only short walk to Playa Flamingo, free wifi included

Before you open your complimentary bottle of cava step outside onto the vast upper terrace and take in the magnificent 180 degree vista of coast, sea and mountain. Three steps down to the lower terraces and gardens and you discover total privacy, spacious and secluded, with the sun here from dawn to sundown. So what to do next...Languish in the heated pool (kept at a constant 28 to 30 degrees), cool down under the palm tree, light the BBQ and start a long lunch, play boules or maybe relax on the Moroccan day bed!

Inside and out this house has been designed for your holiday comfort and enjoyment. The airy en-suite master bedroom opens onto the veranda and pool. At the other side of the house there are two further, well appointed bedrooms, one twin room and one with a king size bed and also a further bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave etc., and the large lounge/dining room has Apple TV. DVD, CD, IPod dock, CD´s, books, games galore and Wifi included for no additional cost. This stylish house is 5 mins walk from Flamingo Beach.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ACCEPT PAYMENT BY PAYPAL subject to a 3.4% service charge.

Lovely villa on outskirts of Cala Blanca.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautiful, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. We were there with our daughters, son in law and 8 month baby granddaughter. We had a wonderful time and would definitely return to that property. It was approximately a 40 minute walk to the Rubicon Centre/ marina but there were a few restaurants only 10 minutes from the villa. These included an excellent Chinese called "Asia" and "Casa Joquain" where the food and service were fantastic.

A great, really well equipped villa. Your very private oasis on the edge of Playa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and a 12 year old) spent a fantastic two weeks in Casa Telescopio. This was our first holiday to Lanzarote although have stayed in lots of villas previously. This has to rate right up there as one of the best villas we have ever stayed in. Everything was exactly as described on the website, and we wanted for nothing - outside and inside. The outside areas and garden were well thought out; kitchen and living areas were all really well catered for. The heated pool was a nice touch, even in July. The villa is close enough to the centre of town to be walkable (about 15 mins) but also far enough away to be quieter and avoiding the hussle-bussle of town at night time. We would recommend a car to get out and about. Noise and traffic from the nearby water-park was a slight concern before we arrived but its such a small park to have never been an issue. Would definitely recommend the villa to others.

Beautiful property, extremely well equipped; feels like home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this villa. The location is good and the villa contains everything you could possibly need for a family holiday. The kitchen is particularly well equipped with modern equipment and every possible cooking utensil ever needed. We cooked more than expected as a result.

We were al so pleased with the modern Apple TV, the amount of books, games and DVDs and the guidebooks of the Island.

Outside the villa is beautiful with plenty of areas to relax, read and sunbathe and its own little bar area (my husband's particular favourite being the beer fridge). There are gorgeous little artistic touches everywhere and the owner clearly had a great eye for detail, and we enjoyed finding the hidden pieces of art and craft all over the garden. A great villa with beautiful sunsets and we would return without hesitation.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this wonderful villa. The villa had everything you needed, for 6 people. And more things we never thought we would need! The kitchen was very well equipped. And not to small at all as someone had put in earlier review. It was spotless clean, pool was great, outside area was well thought out. The bar area was a real bonus as well as the "outside" toilet and shower.

Location was good, think perhaps in summer holidays the music from the water park may be a tad annoying.

Only observation, not complaint was it needed mosquito nets up at bedroom windows.

We would definately use this villa again.

Perfect place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a very relaxing five night stay at Casa Telescopio with my partner last month. We found the villa immaculate, clean and well-equipped, and it served as the perfect place for the two of us to unwind. Most days we lazed by the heated pool (always warm) or on the summer bed and we also took advantage of the DVD collection, and played many of the games kept there, in particular the darts and boules.

We did have a car to explore the island and did visit Cesar Manrique's house, the vineyards and Timanfaya National Park, but a car is not essential with so much on offer within Playa Blanca. You are a short walking distance from a beach and the seafront, where there are a great selection of restaurants and bars. The port is also central to Playa Blanca so it is easy to arrange a day trip to Corralejo on Fuerteventura.

I certainly recommend this villa, and I would definitely come back here. You feel relaxed as soon as you step through the front door.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic clean, modern and well equipped place to stay ideal for exploring Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. There is a lovely outside space that our children enjoyed playing in, it is worth noting that supervision will obviously be required due to the lay out of the swimming pool. The property is as advertised and is cleaned regularly (including the pool) to a high standard. The only negative experience we had was the water park which can be seen from the villa. Not only is this very expensive the water was incredibly cold, leading to our 2 young children having to leave after 20 minutes, the customer service was terrible. This shouldn't be a deterrent against the villa however, since this was excellent. Flamingo beach is a short walk away which is ideal for small children and has pleasant restaurants. Enjoy your stay.

Playa Blanca is the most southerly town on Lanzarote. There is a good and varied selection of restaurants along the sea front. Some have a Flamenco night which is held on Saturdays. Just 5 mins drive away is the uber trendy Marina Rubicon which also has a market on Wednesdays & Saturdays. There are many beaches here; Flamingo, the town beach, Dorada where all water sports can be found, and also the natural beaches of Papagayo. The promenade which goes the complete length of Playa Blanca is ideal for walking and to view the sea across to the next island of Fuertaventura, which you can take the fast ferry to for a great day out. For the more adventurous and keen walkers, there are many good routes all over the island, with some fantastic walks starting in the neighbouring town of Femes. Road cycling is well catered for with many cycle paths around Playa Blanca and for that off road adventure look no further than Montaña Roja, which is the mountain you view from the terrace.
