Overview

About the property

Villa in Montana Roja, Playa Blanca, Lanzarote - Peaceful Location, 10 Mins Walk to the Beach

‘Casa Amatris’ has a private 8m x 4m (26' x 13') solar and electrically heated swimming pool. Possibly unique to this house is the safety cover which has been custom made for the pool. If you have children in your party (or any non swimmers) the cover is very easily and quickly wound into place and runs on tracks along the top edge of the pool. The cover will support the weight of an adult falling onto it, conventional pool covers aren't supported in any way. With total peace of mind that your children are safe to play around the pool and garden you can enjoy relaxing in the sun. There is plenty of patio space for the loungers provided and a shaded veranda with table and chairs for dining whilst viewing the large garden with a wide variety of very beautiful and exotic plants. Inside, all the bedrooms and kitchen lead from the lounge and dining areas, with patio doors in the lounge and master bedroom overlooking the pool and terrace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Casa Amatris in May with 5 adults and two children and we had a lovely time. The villa is really well set up for families and my son was well entertained due to the brilliant toys and games cupboard- a very welcome surprise. The pool cover is excellent offering safety and peace of mind for parents- it also keeps the pool warm and clean. The outside furniture is stylish and very comfortable and the pool is large and well serviced. Overall the villa is well equipped and has a homely feel. The owner is very friendly and reliable and went out of his way to help us with a problem. Many thanks!

Location

Coast/Beach:

Our favourite beach, Playa Flamingo, is a 10 minute stroll away. The beach is ideal for the kids as there are breakwaters on two sides and has gently sloping golden sand.

Travel:

The only airport, Arrecife is a 33 kilometer or 25 minute car journey away. The ferry port with regular short trips to the neighbor island of Fuerteventura is a 10 minute walk from the villa. Puerto Rubicon, Playa Blancas prestigious marina is a 5 minute drive away and has lovely restaurants with terraces overlooking the ocean. The villa has 2 great shopping areas, one in the marina and also on the main walking street only 1 km away. The nearest supermarket is 600 m and the beach is 800 m away!

Distances:

There is a wide and varied range of attractions on the island, essentially something for everyone.

Local to Playa Blanca and only a 10 minute drive away are the infamous golden Papagayo beaches and a few miles inland the Timanfaya National Park which are locally known as the fire mountains.

Playa Dorada beach is also perfect for the children with shallow water, a beach bar, water sports and toilets. Next to that, is Kikoland with ampitheatre, play park, regular activities and animation team.

Further Details:

Adjacent to Playa Flamingo beach are a range of restaurants, supermarkets and a cash point machine. A further walk towards the village centre is the old harbour which is overlooked by more bars, restaurants, shops and a larger supermarket.

The lovely, quaint and unspoilt villages of El Golfo and Playa Quemada are a short distance from Playa Blanca and well worth visiting for dinner or lunch. Terraces overlook the ocean at both areas boast some of best local Canarian cooking and fresh fish and seafood.

Our year round warm temperatures make it a joy to explore the island. An information booklet can be found in the villa with all of our favorite things to do that we are happy to recommend. We hope for you to add to the guest book when you have discovered something worth sharing with the next guests. Local management is on call 24 hours per day, to help advise you and to assist with any questions. We are happy to help and share our experiences with you.

Beautiful, clean, welcoming! Awesome garden and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time! The villa was beautiful and so close to everything! It was perfect and exactly the relaxing type of place we needed after a day exploring. We rented a car so was able to get out to the lava fields and had an afternoon in arrecife. We also went to the underwater museum which was fab!

Thanks again for making the booking process so simple! I have all ready recommend you and the villa to a few friends!

Great quality and beautifully relaxing in equal proportions

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to this ruggedly unique island.

From the moment we booked the villa, Richard was available to answer any enquiries and assist us with our preparations in any way he could.

When we arrived we were pleased to see that the property was every bit as beautiful as the website suggested it would be. We felt at home immediately. We made great use of the pool, which was the perfect size for our family of 5: big enough to get decent exercise for those of us who swim, yet not so big that it felt daunting to my 9 year old non-swimmer (who, by the way, was able to swim by the end if our week's stay).

The villa is right across the road from Aqualava, a reasonably large water park which is popular with the pre-teen youngsters. In fact, every thing you could want was within walking distance of the villa. My only gripe was that I loved being in this wonderful property so much that I didn't get to see as much of the island as I would have liked.

No regrets in our choice of area or villa.

Stunning villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful, relaxing 10 days in this fabulous villa. The villa itself is very spacious and well appointed. The three large bedrooms were airy and we all slept incredibly well due to the super comfy beds. The outside area is amazing with a good size pool and 6 sunbeds. For those who prefer to get out of the sun (me being one of them) this villa had the advantage of a large covered terrace with comfortable seating, perfect for reading and relaxing. Casa Amatris is in a superb location within easy walking distance to the beach and Playa Blanca centre. I cannot find anything negative to say about this villa and hope to return soon.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at the villa with our grown up family of 6. We swam every day in the pool, and snorkelled at the local beaches. Lanzarote is a fascinating place to visit, with a real variety of landscapes, great food and friendly people. I've come home feeling like I've had a relaxing holiday while packing alot in.

Lovely home, easy access to beach and near great restaurants & bars

  • 3 of 5

Lovely home, beds are comfy and nice ensuite just a shame the main shower head was leaking so couldn't use it. Pool is a great size and lovely to jump in when hot but couldn't take advantage of heating as the pool cover was broken and only got fixed the afternoon before leaving. The outside area is very nice to sit in for when dining and keeps the shade all day. Went with a baby and was lovely for him and safe. Only issue we had was that there was building works right next door from 9-5 so we couldn't relax outside at the villa and kept waking the baby up! They didn't speak English so couldn't even ask how long these works were going on for. That being said we did a lot of walking in the area and it's great beach front walk down to the old marina is nice for lunch/dinner or just a drink and the new marina only takes 5mins in a car or probably a 40min walk all along the front.

Would consider going back to this villa due to it being so homely and safe, just please no builders next time!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry that you had the builders to deal with at a neighbouring property, I'm sure you will appreciate that we don't get any notice of these works taking place, and can only apologise for the inconvenience this caused during your stay. The en-suite bathroom was completely refurbished in recent weeks including a new Grohe shower system which I understand needed the main shower head tightening and was dealt with quite quickly. The pool cover is unique to the villa and parts aren't obtainable on the island. One of the gearboxes that runs the cover in and out needed to be replaced and although we have a supplier based in Belgium and the part was delivered on a 3 day service to Arrecife, it took another 4 days to clear customs and receive delivery; it was then fitted same day. We appreciate that there were some frustrations but were also pleased that your overall enjoyment of the villa and Playa Blanca were positive and we would very much welcome the opportunity to welcome you back again. Thank you again for your review. Richard & Karen
