About the property

Villa on Casas del Sol, Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Communal Heated Pool, Complex Near To Restaurants And Shops, But Villa Set Back From Traffic Noise

Casas del Sol is in a prime location in Playa Blanca. It is opposite a small harbour and close to beaches, shops and restaurants. Our 2 villas are situated on this beautiful complex with landscaped gardens, two tennis courts (local charge) and a large heated salt water pool. Each has its own large, private terrace and garden.

CASA AZUL - We bought 28D Casas del Sol in 2003 and it is a much loved home away from home. The income we get is constantly spent keeping it up to the great standard we enjoy and want to spend time in. The villa has been completely refurbished and has a beautiful Spanish style, but a very modern feeling. This villa accommodates 3 people

CASA del BARCO (Property 6545259) - We bought 27A Casas del Sol in November 2015 to enable us to have holidays with our growing family. This is a more traditional villa, but with a new kitchen and bathroom. This villa accommodates 4 people in 2 large bedrooms, one double and one twin. It has one of the biggest and most private terraces on Casas del Sol.

It is such a joy to sit on either terrace and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this wonderful complex whilst looking at our beautiful surroundings.

There are bespoke furnishings and custom made Egyptian cotton towels and dressing gowns to complete the makeover in both villas. The position of Casas del Sol makes it not necessary to hire a car, because there are many restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. There is free private wi-fi access for your own laptop in both villas and an internet room in the reception, so if you need to keep in touch and don't want to carry your laptop, you can do so for just 1 euro! English TV Channels, including BBC 1 & 2 and ITV 1, 2 &3 and Channel 4 & 5. The telephone network means that you can phone between the villas, if you should decide to rent both for a big family gathering.

Ryanair flights now available from Bristol and other UK airports.

About Dianne Livingstone (Sydney Villas)


We both love the sun and try to be in it as much as possible - which usually means going abroad! We always had self-catering holidays with our sons, so that we could be relaxed and have breakfast in dressing gowns, etc, but always found the accommodation lacking. We have tried to include all the little individual touches we felt were missing in our villas to make them a home from home.

We bought Casa Azul in 2003, but bought Casa del Barco in November 2015, so that we can accommodate our extended family when we are in Lanzarote, by having the 2 villas. We use both villas, depending on how may of us are there and want guests to enjoy a feeling of "home from home" as we do.

Dianne Livingstone (Sydney Villas) purchased this villa in 2003

Why Dianne Livingstone (Sydney Villas) chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We love the peace and tranquillity of our villas in particular we bought them because they are in the quietest part of the complex- well away from the road. We also love Casas del Sol because of its excellent location. We enjoy a nice meal and a bottle of wine and there are so many good restaurants in walking distance, we can eat at a different place every night of our stay if we want to. However, we always hire a car and re-acquaint ourselves with the wonderful, unique landscapes and practice our very basic Spanish on the friendly locals. Brian hates driving in the UK, but enjoys the good roads, lack of traffic (and traffic lights, etc.) of Lanzarote. Each time we come we discover a new delight - even though it is quite a small island.

What makes this villa unique

With our villas we feel we have created a light, individual and beautiful space, with Mediterranean feel to relax in. We have custom-made furnishings, bedding, towels and dressing gowns in order to give us a luxury experience when we come away. We enjoy sharing it with people who also love luxury and those little extra comforts, whilst still being in a relaxed non-starchy atmosphere. We very much feel that the rent we make is a tool to help us continually maintain and improve our second home, so that we, and our clients, constantly have regularly added touches to complete the overall experience.

Our glowing customer feedback confirms all this.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time in your villa. It was quite the best furnished and equipped villa that we have stayed in. Many thanks and we should certainly look to stay again if we return to the island. MANSELL & GILL JAGGER -Dec 12

We arrived home yesterday after a happy 3 weeks at 28D. It was such a comfortable villa, clean & fresh, tastefully decorated & helpfully equipped & just ideal for a restful break. Thank you so much for making it the way we found it. EDDIE & BETTY SIMPSON- Apr 12 &13

Thank you for a lovely holiday -accommodation well appointed & well equipped -couldn't have been better. JO BIRD- Apr 11

Thanks for the really enjoyable time we had in your villa. It is a real home-from-home, so comfortable & exactly as described. It's so well appointed and everything you could want is there, from well equipped kitchen, book & DVD/CD collection to very comfortable sofas and outside furniture. The lovely sheltered patio ensured a sunny perch out of the wind. KATHY & STUART ROSSER - Mar 1

Beautiful bungalow, peaceful setting,very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing four weeks in Di and Brian's bungalow in January, our second stay and certainly not our last. Di and Brian care a great detail that there property is kept like a home from home. This includes comfy sofas, scatter cushions, better than your average hotel towels including beach towels, bath robes, hairdryer, iron and so on.

They were staying at their other property whilst we were there and always on hand to offer advise as they really want their guests to be happy.

The bungalow is at the quiet top end of Casa del Sol which has beautiful gardens and pool which are very well maintained.

The patio at the bungalow is very private and a real suntrap and there is quality dining furniture, steamer chairs and other seating. Even in January it catches the sun from about 10am until 4.30.

Thank you Di and Bri for another lovely escape from some of our British winter.

Villa 27a: Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

A lovely well maintained bungalow, situated in a well maintained complex, ideal location less than 10 minutes to the centre of the resort. Air Con in the living room a plus, and the ceiling fans quiet too in the bedrooms. Plenty of bath towels provided. As the property is at the end of a row 4 bungalows no one passes by so very quiet. One of the most relaxing holidays I have had in a long time. Thank you Donna

Highly recomended

  • 5 of 5

Casa Azul 28D is a very pretty villa in a nice quiet location in Casas del Sol. It was clean and well equipped and had very nice modern furnishings. Cooking facilities were excellent. Good selection of English speaking TV channels. The centre of Playa Blanca which has a great range of restaurants is only a short stroll from the villa. There are also some wonderful beaches nearby. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and the reception staff were friendly and efficient.

We will definitely be back.

Beautiful Bungalows, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at apartments 27A and 28D for two weeks during August.

Both bungalows are excellent with every amenity you can think of,

top class furniture and very good appliances. The outside of both is

very nice with plenty of outside furniture and BBQ's, the outside of

27A is bigger, so plenty of room for children to play. The owner was

extremely helpful, both before going and during our holiday and was

a pleasure to deal with.

The site is very good, very quiet with lovely grounds.The pool area

is very good and my grandchildren had a whale of a time with the other

children, I would advise goggles as the water is saltwater. The staff

are excellent and will help you all they can.

Have already booked to return again next year.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was absolutely ideal for me and my wife, it could also easily accommodate up to 2 children as there was a second bedroom we didn't even use. it is perfect size, spotlessly clean all facilities and utensils you could ever want. Decor was modern and new. Location is perfect a short less than 5 minute stroll to shops, bars and restaurants. Swimming pool was clean and spacious and never an issue with sunbeds etc. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed Casa Azul. The new leather sofas seem to coordinate really well with the classic John Lewis furniture we had sent out from the UK originally. Hope to see you back there soon.
