About the Owner
Hello everybody and thank you for taking the time to look at our Villa Casa Amanda.
My wife and I now live in Playa Blanca after living in Hertfordshire in the UK running pubs for thirty years. We have made some good friends in the time we have lived here and love the all year climate of sunny weather. We made the move to live hear in September 2006 after buying the land where the villas sit in 1996. We enjoy the more relaxed lifestyle here, and will always be on hand if anything goes wrong or you need help or advice while you are staying at our villa.
Playa blanca is a lovely place to live or holiday as it is not to big and still has that small town feel about it and is very suitable to family living.
Casa Amanda is only a twenty minute walk away from all the restaurants/bars.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Perfect property for families with small children as stair gate and pool area gates along with cot and high chair all supplied free of charge. We have been coming to Lanzarote for many years and we both agree that Casa Amanda is one of the best houses we have rented and we will be booking again for next year. Beautiful villa very good location and really nice people who own it. Will definitely book again.
Dave and Anne Burke Dublin.
Had a great holiday in Casa Amanda and have already booked for two holidays there next year. Kath and John Currie.
Greg Pugh from Wales
Had a great holiday in Casa Amanda easy walking in to town and the villa was just like home from home Steve and Marianne have thought of everything.
Will be back next year for sure.
Casa Amanda is very child friendly and the owners are very obliging if you do need any local information or help they did not charge us for the use of the cot and high chair which we have always had to pay for before.

Home fom home
We had a lovely stay at Steve's villa in Lanzarote. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and the villa was well equipped with all the cooking utensils you could need and even down to a well stocked sewing kit when we needed it! The outdoor eating area was comfortable and well shaded and if there was a wind it was well protected. The pool area had enough beds for everyone and shade if you need it.
Overall we had a lovely stay and Steve was extremely helpful and lives next door so any help was on hand.
Nice well kept property
First visit to Lanzarote and was really impressed with this villa we chose, Steve the owner who lives next door was very helpful and if you needed to ask for anything nothing was to much trouble, I would highly recommend staying at this villa, there was everything you needed and was very well presented. We would like to thank Steve for such a memorable holiday and will be returning again in the future
We booked the villa for 10 days to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, and what a lovely stay we had. All little home from home bits and pieces were waiting for us upon arrival such as towels, food and drink in the fridge etc. The pool and facilities were all very good. The owners Steve and Marianne made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to show us many points of interest, good eating places etc. The villa is ideal for couples and a family and is kept very clean. The location was ideal for us being just outside the main town but only about a 15 minute walk away from all of the shops, bars and restaurants and main bus terminal, for anyone not keen on walking taxis are very cheap and easy to obtain.
We would definitely return and recommend it to other people.
LOVELY RELAXING HOLIDAY
Lovely spacious villa with everything you need, like home from home. Steve and Marianne the owners live next door and are lovely people who are very discreet but on hand if you require any assistance. The villa is very private and is in a very quiet area but within walking distance of the beautiful resort of Playa Blanca.
Wouldn't hesitate going back.
A great size villa with a family feel.
We arrived at the villa for a 2 week stay and Steve brought us from the airport. There were some essentials in the fridge for us which was fantastic and there is everything you could need provided in the villa. Steve and Marianne provide lots of helpful advice about where to go and how to get around etc. The english tv and free wifi was fantastic for my daughter as this helped keep her entertained when it was too hot for her to sit out. It was so quiet around the villa yet not too far from the town and the harbour. We got taxi's which were very cheap. The villa was very clean and tidy and the pool cleaned during our stay. Overall, it was a very relaxing time and I would definietly reccommend a visit.
We are very impressed with the resort of Playa Blanca, the villa and the perfectly discreet and wonderfully helpful owners - thank you Steve. The villa was clean and well equipped - we were a mixed generation family traveling light and there was everything we needed to make our holiday comfortable and relaxing. The pool and garden are private, spacious and well tended, and the villa was homely and perfectly suitable for us all. The welcome pack meant we were able to relax as soon as we arrived too. Shops about 15 minutes walk, but we found it easier, (and cheap), to use taxis to and from the main part of town. The villa is in a peacful location but with easy access to the town and Aqua Lava - great fun. Plenty to do - try a couple of hours in your own chartered yacht - Alex sailing down in the marina - 60 euros for all 6 of us. Steve and his wife were very helpful - cleaned the pool twice during our short stay and available for anything else we required. I fully recommend Villa Amanda for families or small groups of friends - Playa Blanca is a great resort, (something for everyone). Beach is great - clean and plenty of sunbeds, excursions easy to find and book, but if you just want to relax in the privacy of your own, salt water pool, this is exactly it. Steve helped with our transfers to and from the airport for a very reasonable price, and in comfort. This was just an effortless holiday - thank you so much. Highly recommended!!!!! Thanks again x
From the Owner
“Also while you are on Holiday you may wish to visit Timanfaya National Park Fire Mountain (Timanfaya) A visit to the volcanoes of 'Fire Mountain' are an absolute must to anyone visiting Lanzarote. The area was declared a national park (Parque Nacional de Timanfaya) in 1968 and today remains a truly spectacular excursion for all visitors. Camels (or a bus!) are at the ready to take you up the 512' high trek where you can view the amazing volcanic landscape. The El Diablo restaurant is situated at the very top and most of the grilled specialities of meat and fish are cooked in the 140°C heat that comes from the volcano itself. I often take guests here I charge 25 euros an hour and you pay 12 euros entrance to the park which entitles you to a coach trip over the restricted areas”

“Our Villa is about a fifteen to twenty minute walk in the the centre of Playa Blanca where you will find all the restaurants and bars cafes and beaches along with about five supermarkets.Which means you are far enough away to get all the peace and quiet you want and not far for a night out or shopping etc. A lot of guests walk into town and return by taxi which is only around 4.00 euros. The Villa has walls around the whole garden patio and pool area which makes it very private. We try to give our guests a personal service and as we only live next door we are always on hand if required whether you need a restaurant recommendation or any local information and if we don,t know we will try to find out The villa also benefits from all of the UK terrestrial TV channels and free wifi”
