Villa in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Short Stroll To Bars, Restaurants And Shops; Wonderfully Peaceful Location; Car Not Essential

Located in an exclusive development in the Playa Flamingo area, at the base of Montaña Roja in Playa Blanca is Villa Vida. The Villa is just a 5 minute walk to Playa Flamingo beach. It has four bedrooms, one super king size master with en-suite and dressing room, one double and two twins. It can comfortably sleep eight people plus infants, has three bathrooms, a fully fitted and well equipped kitchen, private electrically heated pool and is furnished to a high standard. Villa Vida has full UK satellite TV and welcomes young children and babies with a retractable stairgate across the poolside patio doors from the lounge for extra peace of mind for those with little ones. One of only a few centrally located villas (of this size) in Playa Blanca. A short leisurely stroll from the villa takes you to the old town's bars, restaurants and shops.

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

Excellent setting

  • 5 of 5

Ideal for the children and grandkids. The safety barrier to the pool area worked well. Pool man Russ came three times and very helpful.

Very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

We chose Villa Vida because of the location - it was only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and believe me if you want to avoid using taxis it wouldn't be realistic to stay much further away from the front. Conveniently located for Aqualava waterpark and walks up Montana Roja. We really enjoyed using the pool (it was big enough to swim lengths) and reading/relaxing on the sun loungers. We had a minor issue with the electrics but were able to get in touch with the owner via whatsapp and she gave instructions on how to fix the problem - she did offer to call in and do it herself so couldn't have been more helpful really.

The only negative aspect of our stay was that the bedding smelt very well used but we were only there a week so put up with it.

Tried several local restaurants, the pick of which were Cervantes (for fillet steak) and the Tipico Espanol next door which does very good pizzas for 3-4 euro. La Katedral is also worth a mention for tapas a little more imaginative than what is on offer in most establishments. Wouldn't bother being too fussy if you are looking for fresh local fish or paella as these are available to a good standard pretty much everywhere.

Great villa, great location and great management

  • 5 of 5

Just returned and the villa was perfect, plenty of room and only a stones throw away from the beach and restaurants. The management team were brilliant with nothing too much trouble. They went above and beyond to make our stay perfect with any issues sorted asap. This is the sort of service that makes a big difference when thinking about booking a villa and something that you don't always get with most companies. I would definitely book again. Thanks

Lovely villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a lovely relaxed week in this villa. Spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for 5 adults. Lovely warm pool and great outside table and chairs.

As regular visitors to Playa Blanca the villa was ideally placed for some of our favourite bars and restaurants which was a big bonus.

Communication was great and any queries quickly answered.

Already planning a return visit next year!
