Luxurious Villa with Private Heated Pool, Marina Views and free Wifi.



Updated: 11-Oct-2016
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 the Owner

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.

Hi Amanda, we just wanted to thank you for our wonderful holiday and all that you did to enable our happy memories. The house was perfect, fabulous location, welcome package, spotlessly clean and everything we could have wanted there at our fingertips. We will definately recommend your property to anyone coming to Lanzarote and would love to come back again ourselves. Barry, Sue, Gayle and Leyton Jeffries 4th June 2012

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.

WOW - better than expected

  • 5 of 5

we have stayed in Playa Blanca several times but always in a hotel and wanted to try self catering which would give us the opportunity to eat out more and have more flexibility with our time.

The pictures certainly do not do this villa justice, from arriving at the front door we thought wow this is great. The outside is well presented with comfortable sunbeds and a rattan table and chairs and the heated pool was lovely. There is also shade for those wanting to stay out of the sun. Breakfast outside was one of the highlights of our week.

The inside of the villa was as described and felt so calm and quiet and was spotlessly clean. The addition of a small welcome pack after a long journey was a very nice touch. For those that like to stay in of an evening the TV has plenty of channels in English with the odd subtitle or two, CDS, DVDs and games as well as a large supply of books on landing. The sofa is also really comfortable and there is a table that seats four for dining should you wish to cook in the fully equipped kitchen but then why would you when everything is literally on the doorstep. There is a supermarket and plenty of restaurants to suit all tastes and we would recommend Lani's in the Marina but there are so many in the area it is hard to choose a favourite.

My husband had the best nights sleep for a long time as the area is so quiet and the beds really comfortable. The ceiling fans in the night came in very handy on a couple of occasions to cool the room.

Amanda was lovely to deal with whether it be by telephone or email as were the staff that came to give us clean towels and to remove them and the bedding at the end of our stay.

We would certainly recommend this villa to friends an family and we ourselves have booked to stay this time in 2017 as we were so impressed.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Arrecife at 35 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Marina at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Playa Blanca harbour at 2 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Puerto del Carmen at 25 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Marina at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Playa Dorada at 0.5 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

walking. There is a coastal promenade from one end of Playa Blanca to the other, not to mention plenty of dead volcanos to walk up!


The closest beach is that of Playa Dorada. Just 5 minutes walk from the Marina. The secluded beaches of Papagayo are just a 5 minute drive away. There is a long coastal path which is ideal for keen walkers. There are wonderful views.


Arrecife airport is approx 30 minute drive to Playa Blanca. It is a fairly straight road. A hire car is not essential as all amenities are within a very short walk.

Ryanair fly to Lanzarote nearly every day. Other airlines: Jet 2, Thomas Cook, Aer Lingus, Easy Jet, Monarch, First Choice, Thomson, and British airways from Gatwick

For car hire, I recommend Cicar and Autos Reisen for their competetive prices. Offices in the airport. To pre-book a taxi look on: www.lanzarotetaxi.com.


If you are planning to hire a car, I would recommend visiting the fishing village of El Golfo which is a 10 minute drive away. The volcano tour of Timanfaya is well worth a visit. That is just 15 min drive. The resort of Puerto del Carmen is approx 25 min drive.

Further Details:

The marina has a variety of designer shops as well as a new shopping centre that also offers Ten-pin bowling, mini golf and trampolines. There are 2 supermarkets, a bank, hairdressers, bakery, gallery and souvenir shops. Superb restaurants, tapas bars and cafes, car hire and a small petrol station.
