About John

I live in Scotland with my wife and daughter. We both work but like to spend our holidays in Lanzarote.

John purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why John chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

After visiting the other Canary Islands many times we eventually discovered Lanzarote and immediately fell in love with it. It is so clean and it has a beauty of it's own. We found the people to be very friendly too.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our first villa rental holiday persuaded us to buy one for ourselves. To not have to reserve a bed at the pool, relax watching Sky TV and the peace and quiet are just a few of the benefits. Although the shops, bars and restaurants are only a stones throw away if desired.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These comments are taken from our own website guestbook , they are unedited and true.



Just returned from a week's holiday in Oct/Nov- everything just perfect: Villa, pool, area, weather, restaurants, even neighbours!! This holiday has to go down as one of the best holidays we've ever had, if not the best. A hassle free holiday - we've returned completely de-stressed and relaxed. Thank You Alwyn & Ruth North Wales.



Beautiful villa, so relaxing very easy to drive around lanzarote. You can order a taxi and it would be there in 5 mins but we enjoyed the villa so much we hardly left it. The pool made our holiday, it was so warm and private & watching the sunset over the sea was beautiful. Next visit to Lanzarote we would definately use this villa again. Regular fresh towels and bedding changed, don't usually get that in private villas. Fantastic hol many thanks. Very friendly owner too.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for two weeks with our 3 children over the Easter break and had a great time. The villa was well equipped and comfortable for all members of our family including our 6 month old baby. The pool was warm, clean and a good size for us all to enjoy every day. The villa is in a quiet area with superb views of the mountain and sea. It has a real home-from-home feel and we would recommend this property.

Curate's egg

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I regularly rent properties for long stays. We stayed here for five weeks from the 7th January. First the positives:

- The villa is in a very convenient situation, with Playa Blanca easily accessible.

- Garden area is good, lots of seating and variety of seating areas, shady, sunny and

sheltered.

- Kitchen well equipped, but no scissors and no cleaning materials. The torch did not work, despite battery replacement.

- Impressive number of heaters, and replacements provided when faults occurred.

We chose this villa above all others because the description suggested it was of above average quality. Whilst that is true of some areas, we felt that some aspects did not live up to that description. In no particular order, our disappointments included:

Some areas of the villa clearly had not been cleaned for some considerable time and were thick with dust. We found all kinds of items between the cushions on the sofa, as well as dust and dirt.

Two of the lights in the lounge did not work. Apparently the owners, who had stayed there in the run up to Christmas, were fully aware, but had not only failed to have them mended, but didn't bother to warn either Sally, the property manager/cleaner or ourselves! Sally was also not told that friends were joining us for a week.

The bathrooms were tired and in need of refurbishment. The bathplug had come off its chain and the toilet single flush stuck down regularly.

The electricity capacity is limited and trips easily whilst cooking, despite the pool heater and pump being turned off. The hot water tank is small and takes time to reheat.

The beds in the second bedroom are very low, and the duvets on all beds are too short. Most of the wardrobes in both bedrooms are padlocked and presumably contain the owners possessions. We were not warned about this and found it a little off-putting.

Lack of space here prevents further detail, but suffice it to say this does not live up to our definition of luxury.

Out of courtesy, we emailed the owners before posting this review to draw their attention to the problems and suggest solutions, but, three weeks on we have received no reply. We have found that communication is not their strong point.

Lovely villa but lots not working

  • 3 of 5

Very nice villa in a quiet location but to start we had been given wrong code to get through security gates, then found villa not very clean, and nothing had been left to clean it with, no dishcloth, no cleaning products, no extra bin bags, not even one dishwasher tablet.

Extremely windy week and roadworks nearby meant very dusty but nothing left to clean it with, had to go and buy everything. Expect to buy some things, don't get me wrong, but no basics at all was a surprise.

All very well equipped but most of it broken. Out of 3 televisions, only one worked. The remote controls had no batteries or they were dead. Quite a few lights were not working or bulbs not been replaced. The surround sound didn't work at all and they clearly knew this as it was unplugged. Only bits and pieces of crockery but nothing matched and only one champagne glass (I guess I'm celebrating alone then) and no scissors in the kitchen at all.

Lack of bedding - no spare bedding at all, not even the spare room was made up so couldn't swap pillows, not even a spare sheet to use instead of the huge tog duvet. Our bed had big black hairs in it, that was a huge turn off.

So overall this let it down quite badly, could have been brilliant with a bit more care and attention, but please don't advertise you have luxury perks if they don't work. I'd rather have a spare sheet than a surround sound that doesn't work.

Owner's Response: Firstly the name of the guest and date of arrival is wrong and should be 7/1/17. They stayed for four weeks and were given a generous discount although this doesn't mean they got reduced standards. Secondly I am very disappointed with this review and although a few of the points raised are justified a lot of them aren't. All of the points are of a minor category which could have been resolved at the time if they were reported. The correct code was given at the time so I don't know what the issue was with that. No complaints were received about villa cleanliness and if they had, we have a very helpful villa manager available who would have attended to it right away. This is a self catering holiday and as such cleaning products are not supplied, usually there is some left from a previous guest but on this occasion there wasn't. Although we don't supply cleaning products we do supply a "Welcome Pack" of food/drink free of charge. We have always taken pride in providing guests with as much home comforts we can including scissors, sufficient quantities of glasses, etc and for over eleven years this has been the case. We provide so much in the villa it is unfortunate that we cannot always do a full inventory check when guests leave and on this occasion it looks like the scissors have gone amiss and a few glasses have been broken. We were at the villa in Dec 16 and re-stocked with matching crockery photos of which will be updated to our website. Random crockery is not something that we have and these comments differ from the guests comment made in private about it being "One of the best equipped they had come across". Fitted sheets are supplied with a 4 Tog duvet in the summer and 10.5 Tog in the winter. They are standard size duvets for the beds supplied. We could have swapped for a lower tog duvet if requested but it wasn't. The villa is cleaned once a week and bedding is replaced at the same time. If guests want extra they only have to request it however we only make up beds for the correct amount of guests. This guest provided a very detailed report to the owner several months after the stay which went to the level of the sink plug chain being broken and the lack of directions to the nearest shop, even although these are provided. We really do appreciate any constructive comments as we want all of our guests to have an enjoyable holiday. We have had a five star review after this guest and will endeavour to maintain this standard in the future.

Very comfortable, well kept and equiped

  • 5 of 5

Villa lived up to high expectations offering us everything we needed. Children especially loved the heated pool, which was cleaned during the week, and Sky TV. The BBQ was fantastic and highly practical to cook on. Beds and sofa areas very comfortable. Kitchen well equiped. Nice bathrooms. Having a car was important to easily enjoy the island with a family. Pre-arrange rental pick up at Lanzarote Airport with CICAR RENT A CAR (through www.DoYouSpain.com); no hassle and 120 Euros for the week for Seat Ibiza (no excess and booster seats included for children). Enjoyed Papagoya beach a few days and visiting all around the island another few days.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa decorated to a high standard and comes complete with everything stated on the description plus some! For us it was an ideal place to stay offering peace, a private pool and everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Being positioned in a gated development (which was kept spotlessly clean) we also felt very secure. This beautiful Canarian home is well cared for with lovely linens and a clean sparkling pool.
