Property type house

About the property

Villa in Marina Rubicon, Playa Blanca. A minutes walk into the centre of the marina. Very quiet location.

This holiday home has been furnished to a very high standard offering the most up to date equipment and comfort. There is a large patio and mature garden and the swimming pool is heated. All facing south, thus ensuring sun all day long. The sunbeds have luxurious cushions for your comfort. There is a barbeque and outside dinning area for those alfresco meals. Free Wifi. Just 5 minutes walk from the marina will bring you to the golden sands of Playa Dorada beach which is very clean and sheltered. It has two beach bars and a few cafes nearby. A further 5 minutes walk will bring you into the Old Town of Playa Blanca. This is where the ferry leaves for Fuertaventura. The coastal promenade starts here, goes through the marina and finishes near Papagayo. Fabulous for walkers. This has to be one of the very best areas in the whole of the Canary Islands, coupled with year long sunshine, makes it an ideal holiday destination for families and couples.

About Amanda

My name is Amanda Taylor and I live in Lanzarote with my husband, Richard and our son Charlie. We moved here nearly seven years ago and decided to build a house in the middle of the Island. While our house was being built, we bought La Casita as a new build, in the marina Rubicon. We could see the potential of having a small house in this new development. We also enjoy sailing which is another reason for having a house near a marina.

Amanda purchased this house in 2005

Why Amanda chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We bought La Casita in 2005 when the new marina Rubicon had just been built. We could see then the potential of the area for a rental house. The layout is superb and there is an excellent variety of shops and restaurants on the doorstep, although still very quiet.

What makes this house unique

The property is just 2 minutes walk into the center of the marina. There is no need to hire a car as all the amenities are close by. However, there are 3 car hire shops in the area if you choose to explore the Island. There is a long coastal promenade which you can walk from one end of Playa Blanca to other. This is lit in the evening.

Fab villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We found the villa very well equipped, we were really delighted with it. It has all the things you need for a perfect holiday. We found it spacious enough for 2 adults and 3 children (the third child was on a fold up bed) The pool was maintained well, clean and warm enough to swim in every day (December)

For us the biggest plus point was the location. La Casita is situated in the heart of the Marina, it has a supermarket, bowling alley and a variety of shops right on the doorstep. You don't need a car at all.

Walking into Playa Blanca along the promenade takes 20mins or so but is a lovely walk. Lots of delightful restaurants and bars.

If you book this villa you will not be disappointed! We will definitely be back again soon.

Fabulous home from home

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay. The villa was immaculately clean as was the pool and outside area. In a quiet cul de sac yet close to the Marina and only a couple of minutes from the local supermarket. This has to be the nicest villa we have stayed in with lots of little extras. From the diffuser for the hairdryer to dad's and games for kids. The welcome items were also a lovely suprise. We would definately return

Wonderful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the villa with another couple for 10 days. The villa was well furnished and equipped with everything you need. The location was perfect with the beach supermarket, bars and restaurants only a VERY short walk away. It was lovely to enjoy breakfast by the pool and to use the BBQ in the evenings.

We loved it so much that our friends were already looking at dates for next year when we were there!

Thank you Amanda.

Spotlessly clean

  • 5 of 5

We have been to several Villas over the years but this one stands out a mile. Spotlessly clean EVERYWHERE. The owner Amanda insists on doing it her self. She is a very pleasant lady and easy to communicate with, from the moment we chose to book. I concur with Michael C (below), the attention to detail is amazing for a holiday Villa, curtains cushions, colors all match. We loved this Villa and so convenient for the Supermarket that sells everything and the fab restaurants at the picturesque Marina. Thank you Amanda

Playa Blanca seems to be getting busier! We couldn't book the villa we had on our last visit but searching around we found La Casista. And I'm glad we did! There are a multitude of very similar villas in the area. What makes this different is that it feels homely. Lots of attention to detail, making it very comfortable. And spotlessly clean. The pool being heated makes it very pleasant to use. It takes away that initial chill factor when you first get in! Another thing that is very good about the villa is the location. Literally three minutes to the supermarket! Yet it's really peaceful. I love it when arrangements go well and there was no trouble with booking or picking up the keys. I can only concur with other reviewers that it is a great property and I recommend it completely!

A lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in February at this villa.

Whilst the weather we had was fairly changeable with rain a times, La Casita provides a nice private and sheltered area to sit outside and relax.

The villa is situated in a cul de sac and so is in a very quiet location.

The balcony shown in the pictures gets sunshine from early morning until late afternoon and it is very pleasant to wake up and have coffee sat watching the world go by.

We had a very minor plumbing problem which was sorted straight away when I contacted the owner.

The whole booking experience was very friendly and efficient and we will definitely will book again at the same time of year.

There is a supermarket within 3 minutes walk which provides essentials and plenty of bigger supermarkets within a 5 minute drive.

You can walk into the marina within 5 minutes where we had some lovely reasonably priced meals.

The beach is within a 10 minute pleasant walk along the promenade.
