About dave or karen

Hi, Dave and I fell in love with the Island of Lanzarote after several visits and we were lucky enough to be able to buy a holiday home there. We have owned our villa since 2006 and have furnished it to a high end modern taste. We regularly visit the villa to carry out maintenance and replace worn items. We are very lucky to have had regular guests who have respected the villa very well. We live in the UK and in 2008 got married in Lanzarote in Marina Rubicon. We know the island extremely well and can advise our guests on most aspects. We are very proud of all the lovely feedback we have had from guests, many of whom have returned to the the villa. We feel we can provide the personal touch having good contacts on the Island who help us out with the little extras that make a difference.

dave or karen purchased this villa in 2006

Why dave or karen chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We chose Playa Blanca because of its ideal location with regard to beaches and tourist attractions. It is the more family orientated resort and has a very safe and relaxing feel to it. We loved the new Marina Rubicon with its cafes and bars sitting on the waterfront. The beaches are fantastic in this area, the best on the island. It is not an overcrowded resort and unlike Puerto del Carmen when you go out at night you don't get hassled by anyone. It is very close to the national park and the backdrop of these volcanoes is breathtaking. It is ideally placed to catch the ferry across to Feurteventura for island hoping. It is a very relaxed and safe resort and alot of investment has gone into this resort to bring it to the beautiful standard it is today.

What makes this villa unique

Mainly the independence of being able to do what you want when you want. There are no restrictions of when you eat or what time you can go in the pool. There is no fighting for a sunlounger and no sharing the pool with everyone else! Its walking distance from the town so you don't need to drive to restaurants and worry about who's going to drive! You can cater for yourselves in terms of food and drink so you can save money this way. We love having a BBQ in the evening and the quality of meat out there is fantastic. It's nice to be able to play your music and relax around the pool without an interruptions or noise. You don't have to get dressed to have a coffee in the morning, just flick the kettle on and watch the sunrise in your pajamas! The sun is over the pool all day, brill!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Villa Ripley during the Feb 08 half term. Instructions from the owners to the villa was very precise and getting there from the airport in our car was no problem. When we walked through the door we were honestly amazed! The Villa was so beautiful and well equipped that I would describe it as better than home from home! The rooms were beautifully decorated and spotless.

My family consisted of two adults and three children and we were very comfortable. The owners provided play station with games, cable TV, stereo/CD player, DVD with a superb DVD library with the latest films, books, info on the Islands. There was nothing missing. Playa Blanca in my opinion has more class than anywhere else on the Island. We were out everyday but the children would pester us to go 'home' to enjoy the villa's pool and bath like temperature. Honestly I’m not one for giving praise or doing reviews, but credit where credits due Villa Ripley is luxury at an amazing price, couldn’t fault it.

Wonderful holiday spent at villa riply, we paid extra for pool heating which was well worth it. The villa has everything you could want. There were many DVDs and PlayStation games to choose if wanted but we didn't use them as the weather was so nice we were out most of the time on our hired bikes which was great fun. There are fans in the bedrooms and an air conditioner unit in the sitting room that operates on a coin meter. The taxi service is second to none and very reasonable. I would recommend villa Riply.

Great villa, all that we needed

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the communication with David was great, he always responded to my messages promptly.

The villa had everything we needed, plenty of towels, sun beds, kids pool toys. A large selection of DVDs, CDs and books. The TV in the lounge had all the channels and a Kodi style film device which we really appreciated seeing as we were away with 3 small children.

We hired a car and it was a short drive to the local beaches and marina. I think you could walk it but maybe get a taxi home if you have children.

The bed in the main bedroom is so comfortable which makes a lovely change, I'm normally desperate to get back to my own bed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and would definitely recommend both the villa and Playa Blanca and hopefully can return again ourselves sometime.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We visited Villa Ripley for 10 days in July and were not at all disappointed. The villa was certainly spacious enough for the three of us with room to spare. We found it to be well equipped, clean, tidy and in a lovely position that gets the sun around the pool all day long whilst not being overlooked at all. We made use of the BBQ a couple of evenings which was nice to relax around the pool instead of going out all of the time. The owners were very pleasant and helpful, they sent a map showing details of the local area and were happy to email recommendations of the best restaurants and places to visit when I asked. The pool man lives a few doors up, a great guy and he visited twice a week to keep the pool clean and maintained. We hired a car for the full time we were there which was a big help and made it a lot easier to get around the island and visit the sites. The beaches, resorts, shops and restaurants nearby are really nice and not at all rowdy although there are fun bars etc. if you want them so something for everyone. Marina Rubicon is a 5 minute drive away and really recommended for the restaurants. Prices varied a little bit but we didn't find any of them to be particularly expensive and all were good value with great food. We loved Lanzarote and will probably return again in the future - if we do we will definitely look up Villa Ripley again.

Dorada Beach


From our villa a 15 - 20 min walk will take you to Playa Dorada beach. It runs for about half a mile with soft sand and clear blue waters. Playa Flamingo beach is to the right of the harbour, this too has a sandy beach. The best beaches in our opinion are the Papagayo beaches. These can be reached by a 15 min car journey. They have clear blue waters ideal for snorkeling.


The airport in Lanzarote is Arrecefi. It takes approx 30 mins by car to Playa Blanca and is 35km away. Car hire is recommended, but taxi's are readily available for those who do not wish to drive. We may also be able to arrange pick up's from the airport if required. The nearest ferry port is in Playa Blanca approx 1.5km from our villa.


By car you can drive round Lanzarote in a day, as Playa Blanca is at the southern most part of the island everywhere is north. Costa Teguise has a great fun filled water park, an 18 hole golf coarse and is great for wind-surfing. Puerto del Carmen is the nightlife capital of the island, has many shops and loads of restaurants, clubs and bars, 20 mins by car. Tias is famous for its wine, producing some very good quality stuff. First Minute Travel is a good company for day trips.

Further Details:

Playa Blanca has a pedestrianized town with plenty of shops, a supermarket, ladies clothes shops, banks etc. Bars and restaurants are on the seafront. There is a promenade which leads along the front to The International Marina Rubicon. This is a brand new marina with very stylish shops and fantastic restaurants/bars. Some good art shops too. Leisure activities include jet/water skiing, diving, snorkeling, cycling, fishing, tennis, bowling, horse riding, wind-surfing, swimming, quad biking or just plain sun bathing. Also take the ferry to Futerventura, it only takes 15 minutes by sea cat and you do not need the car.
