About the property

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.

Fantastic Villa with great outside pool area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in February 2017 myself, wife and 18 year old daughter. The villa is excellently located near the Flamingo beach, just a 10 minute walk away. To walk into Playa Blanca centre took about 20 minutes. We usually took a taxi for the return journey from Playa Blanca which costs less than 4 euros. The villa was equipped with everything you could wish for but also had many nice touches ie vast cd collection, dvd collection, indoor and outside games. All three bedrooms were lovely and the two ensuites were a good size and very good quality. The pool was heated which was absolutely perfect for when we were there. The outside area has plenty of space for sun bathing and also areas to keep out of the sun. The raised patio area was perfect for breakfast, lunches and early evening drinks and has a very comfortable seating area. The "outside" bar and barbeque area, with sink! was completely unexpected and a delight. The personal touches by the owner are to be seen all around the villa both inside and outside.

We loved our stay and will be returning asap! We have already highly recommended to our friends

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.

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.
