About the Owner
About Lesley Dickson
My wife and I bought in Playa Blanca after visiting the area for many years. We enjoy the lovely restaurants that are at The Marina and on the seafront in the town centre. I also enjoy mountain biking locally and running along the coastal path that goes from 300m from our front door to the other end of playa Blanca at the lighthouse.
Our children enjoyed many holidays there when they were young and still enjoying coming out to their "2nd home" now they are grown up. Playa Blanca is a family orientated resort and is now described as the "jewel in the crown" of the Canary Islands. We continually maintain the villa to a standard that we can enjoy and allows our guests to feel they have all the home comforts to ensure an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
We have recently purchased the villa next door to Villa Elise, which is also available for rental at https://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/accommodation/p6835311 by searching property ID 6835311.

Fantastic well equipped villa
We really enjoyed our nine night stay at Villa Elise and will definitely recommend it to friends and family. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We really appreciated the large robust barbecue and the reliable Wi-Fi. The only criticisms are as there were four of us a four slice toaster would have made breakfast time easier ,there was only one sharp knife for food preparation, and a tray would have been useful for carrying drinks etc outside
We have just returned from an 11 day stay at this beautiful villa. The villa is equipped to a really high standard we wanted for nothing. Its lovely pool and immaculate garden terrace made our holiday one of the best we've had. Its location is really good bus and taxi links 2 minutes away if you need them but the coastal walk which starts at the top of the road is a must. Villa is just a 15 minute walk to the breathtaking marina rubicon and 25mins away from playa blanca. Right from the outset owners lesley and glenn gave us a first class service nothing was too much trouble and we were given lots of really good information prior to arrival. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend this villa and cant wait to return. Thanks Glenn and Lesley for a perfect holiday.
Great Holiday Villa
Have stayed at this lovely villa on a couple of occasions and can highly recommend. From the initial enquiry Lesley - the owner, has been wonderful to deal with, always replies promptly and goes out of her way to help. The villa is ideally located in a quiet area with easy access to the seafront promenade and very handy supermarkets nearby. It is approx 15 minutes walk to Marina Rubicon with its market, restaurants and shops.
The villa has everything you are likely to need for self catering along with good quality sun loungers and outside furniture to relax on. The property is well maintained and clean and provides a perfect base for your holiday.
Spent a very enjoyable week at this lovely villa in October with my son and daughter. The villa is well laid out with a surprisingly large sun bathing area as it goes around the side of the villa as well as the pool area. There is also a nice seating area on the balcony and you could sunbathe up there. It seems to have more space outside than the neighbouring two properties and is not overlooked from the road.
This villa is very clean and well kept with a lot of attention to detail even down to floats for the pool. You can tell the owners take good care of the property, the outside furniture was pristine and the beds and couches were very comfy. Couldn't fault anything in the villa at all.
The coastal path is 5 minutes away so you can walk to the lovely chilled out Marina Rubicon. It takes about 15/20 minutes but if you want to take in the view along the way and go at a slower pace there are plenty of view points with seating to enjoy. Bus stops at the top of the road to Playa Blanca, just make a right turn and cross the road. 2 supermarkets very close by as well.
All in all we had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay and just wanted to say thanks to the owners for helping us with transport and making our stay as enjoyable as it was .
Excellent Semi-Detached Villa
This was our 4th visit to Playa Blanca, but first stay at Villa Elise. We had another great time and holiday and our boys aged 8 & 4 loved the pool and garden area.
The villa is well presented and provides everything you require and the bedroom and beds are excellent.
You are only about a 15 min walk from the Rubicon Marina and probably 35 mins into the centre. However taxi's are cheap from town and only cost around 2.5 Euros.
We had a hire car from the airport via PlusCar who I use on each occasion, free booster seats and additional driver and no fuel policy. We often went off on trips such as Submarine, Rancho Texas, Timanfya etc, but a car is not really essential.
We tried 2 new restaurants this time, a new Inidian in the commercial centre which was very good and also Asia in town which was excellent.
All in all if you are seeking a well equipped, clean, spacious villa then I would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Elise.
As previous reviews have stated Lesley was fantastic from our initial enquiry, right through to the day of leaving.

Cycling for enthusiasts is a must, as Lanzarote hosts fantastic roads for cyclists to enjoy, whether you are a keen cyclist or would rather enjoy a peaceful cycle along the coastal path, the choice is yours. Bikes can be rented from Playa Blanca at reasonable rates, which are discounted the longer the rental. Marina Rubicon is ideal for people who like to scuba, sail and enjoy life on the water. There are kayaks for the kids. Marina Rubicon hosts the most magnificent yachts, bars and restaurants overlooking the marina, which entertains the children watching and feeding the fish swim below you whilst you dine.
