About Marie Glendenning

We first came to the island in 2000 and after always promising we would never holiday in the same place twice, we have not been able to help ourselves come back to Lanzarote - and in March 2009 we eventually upped sticks and brought our then 2 and a half year old daughter and 18 month old son out to live here permanently. Having four villas which we let to holidaymakers and a sail boat which my husband takes people out for day trips on, we're pretty busy looking after them but when we're not doing this we enjoy having as much fun as possible with our two children. We have all settled well here and are loving the Spanish way of life, the relaxed and loving nature of the locals and not to mention the "slightly" better than UK weather!

Marie Glendenning purchased this villa in 2007

Why Marie Glendenning chose Yaiza

As we already knew and loved Playa Blanca we came on holiday in January 2007 with our then 5 month old daughter. We stayed a few streets away from Villa Vida and although it was not our intention at the time, we came home having bought this property! We loved the area, the peacefulness and the fact it was only a short walk to supermarkets, the centre of the Village, the beach and the promenade.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Vida is a beautiful property and has the most wonderful uninterrupted view of Montaña Roja from the poolside dining area, which changes as the sun moves all day long, with it eventually setting behind it. It is fantastically beautiful! The villa is spacious and benefits from a large master bedroom, the super king size bed always being a favourite! It's close to the beach, promenade and town yet far enough away so you can also enjoy peaceful quiet nights in or barbecuing on the traditional Canarian barbecue.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We got back today from our fabulous week in Lanzarote at Villa Vida. I can't tell you how lovely it was to stay somewhere so clean and spacious with absolutely eveything you need for the perfect holiday. We loved the villa, the town, flamingo beach everything was just lovely. My daughter had such a fantastic time she's got red marks on her face from the snorkel mask (it was so hard to get her out of the swimming pool at the end of everyday). We all had such a good time and would definatly go back to villa VIDA

Good unwinding Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa is in an ideal location and is genuinely only a 5/10 minute walk to the sea front.

The villa was spacious enough for our party of 5 and had all modern conveniences you come to expect, however it could do with a little makeover as some of the internal fixtures looked a little on the tired side, but it did represent good value for the money.

We enjoyed our stay in Playa Blanca. It is 90% geared to eating out with most places resembling restaurants/seaside eateries and not many establishments being where you could stop for a few hours to unwind over a beer or 2.

The waterpark is worth a visit especially if you have younger children. We used the waterpark on the last day as we had a night flight and it was a good place to be able to use as a base for our last day .

Adults are 20 euro admission so its a little pricey.

All in all a good holiday

Generously sized Villa and great for families

  • 5 of 5

A generously proportioned villa which we would recommend for all ages. Villa situated in a nice quiet residential area but is in easy reach of the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. Kids also took advantage of the water park situated at the end of the road. Villa itself is well set out and benefits from three bathrooms/shower room. The pool is a good size and was cleaned twice during our 10 day stay. The owners were very helpful and friendly throughout the booking process. Thank you.

A real gem in Playa Blanca.

  • 5 of 5

An amazing week with 5 adults and 2 children under 1 at Villa Vida.

Excellent customer service from our initial enquiry and It was lovely to meet Marie on our first day as she dropped of our towels etc.

Great location, a ten minute walk to the Playa Blanca or a short 4 euro taxi ride to Playa Blanca or Marina Rubicon.

The villa was really well equipped and plenty of space.The heated pool was a great bonus with plenty of sun loungers. The child safety gate connecting the lounge to the outside was a fantastic bonus. The addition of a large TV with sky ( including sky movies ) was a plus on nights we just wanted to chill out. Comfortable beds and loads of storage. The outdoor area with BBQ was great and we all felt at home. We would love to visit again. A big thank you once again.

excellent, already rebooked and highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this villa was perfect. There were 5 adults and my 2 toddlers in total and not once did we feel crowded. The villa was very clean and tidy on arrival and Marie and Steve were fantastic. One of the fans broke whilst we were there and within a few hours a new one was delivered without and questioning. Marie and Steve have thought about everything to make the stay so comfortable from providing towels and bedding at no extra cost to a safety gate across the lounge door to stop the little ones being able to get to the pool on their own. They have even put together a pack of information to keep you safe and and the make the most of your stay. This property is also very suitable for wheelchair users and we can't wait to go again in November with my mother who's in a wheelchair and 2 other family members. Thank you both for a lovely holiday destination :)
