About Sue Donovan

I used to live in the UK but have moved to Lanzarote, having fallen in love with the island in 1979! I personally look after the villas and ensure that each guest receives 'the personal touch' so that their holiday is a great experience and one that they will want to repeat for years to come, everything is done to make the whole booking process 'stress free' and very easy. The family touch continues all through your holiday until you arrive back in your own home, I live close by as do the cleaning staff so we are on hand to answer questions and solve problems, I love the island and the villas and know that you will feel the same, many guests come again and again and recommend to friends and family as they know they can rely on being cared for from the first enquiry until they leave to go home

Sue Donovan purchased this villa in 2004

Why Sue Donovan chose Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca is, we believe, the best resort on the island - Spanish is the main language spoken allowing you to feel that you really are on holiday and away from home, it caters for families with children and couples. There is so much to enjoy whether it is walking along the promenade by the sea, enjoying the wonderful white sand beaches for which Playa Banca is famous, lounging by the swimming pool, enjoying a bit of fishing or water sports, or even indulging in a bit of 'retail therapy'. It is 30 minutes from the airport, so no plane noise to spoil the peace and quiet but close enough to ensure you are not wasting your holiday with a long journey.

The villas are situated on a residential complex outside the main town so it is so quiet and peaceful but you are close enough to pop out to a restaurant or bar, with a bus stop and taxi rank close by if you prefer not to drive.

The pool is absolutely perfect for children as it does not have a deep end, it is all the same depth, the only problem you will have is trying to get them to leave the pool!!

What makes this villa unique

The villa offers the complete 'home from home' experience with the bonus of a private heated pool and sunshine! If you love to go away with friends or other members of your family but would like to have your 'own front door' having five villas on the same complex gives you this option. The residential complex is wonderfully quiet and has the bonus of three community pools as well as the private heated pool for each of the villas. Just a 5 minute drive into the centre of Playa Blanca, the villas also have a bus stop and taxi rank just 5 minutes walk away + a mini-market.

If you have rented a car there is a private drive so no worries about lack of parking,

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say thanks for a nice holiday, the villa was excellent and the location couldn't be better

Phil UK

We just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you very much for

your help during our recent visit to Lanzarote. My mother in law

enjoyed the week in spite of the broken rib and we all felt relaxed at

the end of the week, having had a quiet time away from it all. The

villa was very comfortable and was well suited to our needs. As I

said when we met you I thought your information pack was particularly

well put together and very useful. Keep up the good work.


Just having our last breakfast at the Irish Anvil.

Had a great time. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your villa this week, it has been perfect for us. And the weather has improved!!

Great Villa ideal base with a heated pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa Blue Marlin was very well equipped in a pleasant and quite residential area.

We arrived early dropped off our bags and met Sally. The pool was great to relax in especially after a walk up the volcano Rosa behind the property - the views are stunning well worth the climb.

Great tapas in Femmes overlooking Playa Blanca again stunning views.

An early morning trip to Timanfaya was worth it along with El Golfo.

Beaches at Papagayo were stunning great snorkelling.

Overall a great stay Sue thanks a lot I am sure we will be back

Blue Marlin is absolutely fantastic.

Very clean and tidy.

Great location (30mins drive from airport, taxi rank 5 minutes walk away €4 to get to town, 10/15 min walk to get to beachs/centre).

Dishwasher/washing machine helpful.

Kitchen had everything you need to cok a good meal for 4.

TV with Amazon Prime and Netflix's plus strong wifi all over the villa was an added bonus.

Private pool and back garden was a great spot (pool cleaned throughout stay).

Would 100% recommend and come back again. Stayed mid July 2017.

P.s rented a car with autoresign (only a little more than transfers from airport), handy for villa with shopping and beach etc but could get by without one.

Lovely clean villa, perfect for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my boyfriend just stayed in Blue Marlin for two weeks and had an amazing time. The villa was spotless with plenty of linens and towels provided. The pool was amazing, perfect size for a couple or small family. Overall we had a fantastic holiday. There is a bus stop very close by that goes straight into Playa Blanca, which only takes about 20-25 minutes or a taxi only costs €3-€5 depending on the time of day. I would recommend renting a car if you want to see more of the island or get to secluded beaches, if you're just happy to stay in Playa Blanca though you should be able to get around without one. Sue was a lovely host and was happy to answer any questions we had and provided a very thorough information pack. Would love to go back one day as we had a very relaxing holiday in Blue Marlin! Thank you Sue!

Perfect location for a bit of autumn sunshine

  • 5 of 5

Our main reason for visiting Lanzarote was to dive the recently installed underwater sculptures by Jason Decaires Taylor just off the coast of Playa Blanca. Before we arrived Sue was more than helpful sending us advice regarding the local Dive school. After each day visiting other attractions that Lanzarote had to offer, it was always great to come back to the Villa and chill out by the pool.

We went out to eat most evenings but also took advantage of the Barbecue.

The Villa itself is clean and comfortable, with free wifi, which we were grateful for to keep in touch people at home. We loved our stay here and would happily recommend the property to anyone.

Nearest Airport
28 Kilometres
Arrecife Airport
Car: recommended


Playa Blanca is famous for its white sandy beaches, Playa Dorada, Playa Mujeres and Playa Flamingo are a five minute drive [20 minute walk] and the famous Papagayo beaches are a fifteen minute drive away. There are frequent ferries to the neighbouring islands of Fuerteventura and Los Lobos from the nearby harbour area.


Arrecife is the only airport on the island and is a 30 minute drive. We do recommend car hire, but many of our guests have used taxis/hired bicycles or walked into the centre! There is a good bus service to the centre of Playa Blanca and also a taxi rank close by.


The villa is a 5 minute drive from the centre of Playa Blanca. 30 minutes from the airport. The roads on Lanzarote are maintained to a very high standard and all places of interest are easily accessible from the villa.

Further Details:

The villa has a small supermarket/taxi rank five minutes walk away, a taxi into town is approx 4 euros. The town and harbour area offer a splendid selection of shops and restaurants and the resort is perfect for couples and families.

A full information pack is provided in the villa and also when you have a confirmed booking, this ensures that you find everything you need when you arrive rather than the day before you leave, it also lists ideas of things to see and do while you are in Lanzarote as it is the most beautiful and fascinating of all the Canary Islands
