Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

I love this villa. It has a unique character and is the perfect place to stay for peaceful rest and to unwind in a very quiet area while still being convenient for the centre of Playa Blanca - about 10 minutes easy walk. The villa is spacious, clean and well-kept and has everything you would need including a well-equipped kitchen. The pool is a good size and gets sunshine all day. I have stayed more than once, and always found the owners helpful when needed, and this year it was a new local management team who were responsive and helpful without being intrusive. I recommend this villa and will definitely go back again myself.

Perfect for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just left this villa and have had a totally relaxing two weeks there with our three children. (11,9 and 7) The site is extremely quiet and private and we all really enjoyed spending time in and around the pool. (The pool was a very pleasant temperature as long as the cover was used every evening and removed in the mornings.) The pool area is gorgeous with beautiful flowerbeds and plants to enjoy. We ate our breakfast and lunch outside every day and headed out most evenings to the many restaurants that are in walking distance of this villa. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was a pleasure to cook in. Ants were an issue but having stayed in five different Lanzarote properties in recent years we are well used to dealing with them! We desperately needed our batteries recharged this summer and feel that time spent in this restful holiday home was just what our family needed. The villa felt like a home rather than a holiday rental. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a superb location. We definitely will be back. The front garden and patio area- with mountain view- was an unexpected bonus too! Gail was always in contact by email or text to answer questions and this was very much appreciated. J Denvir

Won't be going back 🙁 !

  • 1 of 5

When we first arrived we thought what a lovely place ! Day 2 and we realised that the pool was not heated in fact the pool was freezing and unusable also had a leak and over 3 days dropped approx 12" , 2 of the filters were not even working, over night the neighbors had cut down shrubbery that had grown over the wall and thrown it all back over the wall creating a lot of mess some of which went in the pool, messaged the local contact who just sent the pool guy to clear pool, which we had already done , he swept all the mess into a heap behind the water fountain and that's where it stayed ! The dishwasher was out of action and looked like it had been for sometime. The toilet flush button was broken, we had to throw away food that was in kitchen cupboard as all covered in little ant like bugs everything had to be put in fridge of microwave as sides were covered with them even though I sprayed around with bug killer. We emailed the owner but as yet have not had any response. We will not be returning or recommending to friends or relatives we have had a few villas in playa blanca and this is the only one we felt we had to write a bad review about .

Owner's Response: I must firstly say that we did not get a chance to respond to the guests email before they had posted the review,So feel we must defend some of the comments made: It clearly states in our listing that the pool is Solar heated ( maybe some do not understand the meaning of this) and has been for 8 years with no guest complaints, we do have a new pool guy who has wrongly filled the pool to the very top over the skimmers ,we have also had a pool company out to test our pipework and skimmers in April and a small leak has been found ,there report has noted that this is not major and will not affect the use of the pool unless over filled as it will lose the amount of water to below the tiles about 10 inches as has happened in this case, we have booked the work to be done later in the season so we don't affect the bookings already made as the villa will be out of action for ten days. We employ a gardener who tends our gardens and sadly people in Spain do cut anything that slightly overhangs and leave it your side, we get on very well with all our neighbours it's just there way! However we have been charged for the pool man to clear the cuttings and we do feel he should have removed them as part of his payment, we actioned the leaves to be cleaned up as soon as our manager informed us of the guest reporting it. The dishwasher was broken by the previous guest who left broken glass and dishes in side it and never reported that it had been broken.... unless they broke it ! as it was fully functioning before they arrived we are guessing the broken glass did it ,please remember we are on a Island and getting a integral dishwasher replacement at 500 euros takes time as has to be ordered in. Only the toilet FULL flush button has been removed leaving the short flush working to save water as all water on the island is desalinated and costly... helping the environment!!. Again our listing pre warns guests that we are in a warm climate , Note :off the coast of Africa and little bugs are very normal and are very attracted to any food left out or bins not emptied . These guests did not have the best weather and maybe that contributes to all the negativity, We do hope we have clarified all the points raised , and welcome any questions from prospective new guests as we would hate for you to miss out on this unique villa because of this one review.
