About Graham & Anne Cook

We purchased our home after traveling to Lanzarote with our daughter before her first birthday! She has grown up there and been every year since!

Graham & Anne Cook purchased this villa in 1999

Why Graham & Anne Cook chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We loved the unusual nature of the Moroccan style villas and the quiet location, nearby the rugged coastline.

What makes this villa unique

These Moroccan style villas with domed roofs and formal chimneys (barbecues) are the only ones of their type on the island. The complex also has its own on-site shop.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Back safe and sound. Just a quick note just to say thanks for the villa.

Did 'everything it said on the tin' as it were, and we'll have no problem

recommending it. Might be back next year !



Just a quick message to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely Lanzarote villa , we all really enjoyed the holiday and didn't want to come home ! We now know why your neighbours have emigrated there !

Everything was fine , your instructions were spot on ,

Thanks again ,

Brilliant, comfortable, clean home from home!

  • 5 of 5

To start the communication with Graham was brilliant, he was always willing to answer my questions, the information provided a couple of weeks before check in was spot on, directions to the villa, access information, everything you could need was right there.

We arrived on the Sunday and after following the directions we arrived at the villa, the first impressions from my family was WOW, we had good fun exploring the villa, and the children enjoyed the roof terrace! The view from there was brilliant, and in the evening, although not warm enough to stay outside (it was February!) we enjoyed star gazing and lighthouse watching!

The bedrooms were good sized and the beds comfortable, everything was clean when we arrived. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and work space. The living space was also well proportioned and comfortable, the telly was great but we didn't watch much so can't say what channels were there, but the cartoons were good for keeping the children entertained, maybe if your with children take some dvd's with you!

We didn't find the villa information book until the day we left! Might of been handy if it was out on the table or something, but seriously nothing much extra in it than the information via the booking agent. The drive to playa Blanca was about 10min, great for shops and restaurants, beach wise we choose playa del carmen (mainly as it was excellent for snorkelling!)

but above all, this was a great, relaxing, clean and very comfortable villa for Our family and we will defiantly stay again if we come back to Lanzerote.

So the bad bit...you won't want to leave!

attractive house in quite postion large shared pool not busy 10min walk to rocky sea 30min to beach

  • 4 of 5

This house is set well out of Playa Blanca which makes it quiet but also a long way from restaurants shops and town beaches. We hired a car to let us shop easily and to explore the island. The house had a few faults, a lu paper holder that fell off the wall straight away, a loose bed head which was annoying. Both bathrooms looked a bit dated , the bath had a chip in it the grouting was dirty and needed renewing around the bath and the shower. The microwave was very rusty under the plate and there were dirty oven trays in the oven. None of these things spoilt our holiday but I feel they should be pointed out.

The beds were comfortable and plenty of room for storing clothes. The fans were very welcome. In October we had no problem with mosquitos.

We spent a lot of time out of doors, breakfast and barbecued some evenings. The barbecue grill was left dirty and took a long time to clean. We loved sitting up on the roof and enjoyed seeing the sunsets and the moon rise above the volcano.

There was no information about whether we could drink the tap water or not. it would have been helpful to have been told. One neighbour said yes and one said no! We ended up buying all our drinking water.The on site shop was useful for some things.Overall we really enjoyed our stay and discovering a very interesting Island.

Owner's Response: Hi Gill - thanks for posting this. We've already addressed a number of the issues you mention - as you can appreciate some of these may have been from previous visitors and wouldn't show up in our normal exit checks. What can look like 'dirty' grouting is actually the result of the fairly continual red dust blowing across Lanzarote - I can assure visitors it is cleaned for every guest, and regularly refreshed. We'll be there in a couple of weeks so it will get another refresh then ;) It sounds like the microwave needs replacing which we will do - again we hope guests leave the oven in as clean a condition as possible, and we will dispose of any oven trays that cannot be properly cleaned. The barbecue grill is permanently outside so will never look clean or new in this climate ;) The tap water is certainly clean enough to drink - bottled water is more of a taste preference! I am glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you come back again : thanks Graham

We had a fantastic holiday at the villa

  • 4 of 5

Would recommend this villa to anyone was all we needed. A few suggestions from myself & friends. Beach towels provided, new microwave, shower tray in ensuite needs attention as water spills onto floor could easily slip & a gate from Carpark to enter villa as when been out for day or shopping carrying heavy bags. We will definitely return. The outside was great be BBQ few evening. There was plenty cooking utensils & crockery

Owner's Response: Thanks Anne - I appreciate your comments & hope to welcome you back! We don't supply beach towels and state this in the booking contract as it is too difficult to keep these clean & fresh for visitors. We'll look at the en-suite shower tray. The main car park is at the other end of the complex but it is possible to walk around a couple of houses for a short cut to the side road if parked there ;) Graham

A great villa for a relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

What a great house which is very private, therefore very quiet and providing a very relaxing break. We hired a car, which to get the most out of the area is best. The villa is very spacious and had everything we needed. The kitchen is well stocked and there were plenty of towels. The area is very quiet, which was perfect for us, not overlooked at all. It was a 15 minute walk to pick up supplies, although the small shop on site had bread etc if needed. As we had a car we did our shopping further a field. The bus down to the town was a 10 min walk, this went twice an hour.

The accommodation is great, we were a party of 2 adults and 2 teenagers, we made use of the pool, the bikes and the tennis court.

Overall a great place to chill out, relax and enjoy the sun.

Very clean well presented property in a quiet location, it had everything we required.

  • 5 of 5

Overall we were delighted with the location and the property in Montana Rojas Playa Blanca

We used the bikes and walked a lot on the promenade which ran for a couple of kilometres into Playa Blanca and past the lighthouse, there were plenty of good restaurants .

We loved having the little well stocked shop on site we got hot bread and croissants in the morning.

Transport was good with the bus & taxis were good value& easy to access.

We climbed the volcano behind there is a track all the way up.

Overall the holiday was v relaxing with good communication with Graham and his contact Robert who lives on the site.

I would certainly return & would reccommend the property.

Playa Blanca is in the South of the island and boasts a wonderful area of beaches, shops, dramatic scenery, restaurants, and bars. The town also boasts a new marina as well as the original port where you can reach Fuerteventura for a short day trip. Shangrila Park is on the edge of Playa Blanca next to Montana Roja and the town centre can be reached in 5 minutes by car, 10 minutes by local bus service, or 15 to 20 minutes by bicycle on the wonderful new promenade by the coast. Shangrila Park is a vehicle free community (free parking is provided on-site) with the only collection of Moroccan style detached single-storey villas and apartments on the island. Coffee shops, bars, supermarkets, buses and taxis can be accessed within 10 minutes walk but a car is the best way to explore the whole of this wonderful island during your stay. Residents and visitors of Shangrila Park can enjoy free access to tennis courts, open communal play areas, and large pool and an on-site mini market shop.

Other Activities: a new water park is open, easily accessible by the bus service or a round a 20 minute walk from the house.

Golf: There are two golf courses already on Lanzarote with a third under construction nearby in Playa Blanca. A day trip to Fuerteventura by ferry from Playa Blanca provides another option for a day's golf.
