About Donna Connolly

We live in England and have 5 children under 21. We love holidaying especially in Playa Blanca Lanzarote and have been coming to Lanzarote for over 30 years. we want people to come to our villas and have all the comforts they would have at home.

Donna Connolly purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Donna Connolly chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We love Playa Blanca its peaceful and safe we saw it when there were only about 12 houses there we bought our villa for the location and size particulaly the outside space having 5 kids you need it its very peaceful yet only 15mins walk from town.

What makes this bungalow unique

Lots of space, peaceful a real home from home.

Great location clean and homely

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my sister and her family last year which we all enjoyed ,so much that I am looking to book again this year I noticed a really bad review (I as the lady that wrote that am now compelled to right this )how can she right so much rubbish about this lovely Villa how can there be rubish all around when this villa is totally enclosed ( one of it's many good features ) We could not find anything to complain about from the Start Donna was helpful and the management team (which although we did not have to call on where on hand day and night ) looking forward to my return

Great Villa, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Had a fantastic fortnight. The villa was very comfortable. It is clearly more than a rental villa. It has been lovingly decorated and furnished. Everything is of a high standard, it really felt like a home.

The location is great, a few minutes to get into town by car or bus. Nice and quiet, complete privacy. The outside area was great, we loved playing pool and even table tennis gave us a great laugh! The pool was perfect. We couldnt of asked for more.

There were a few issues with the cleaning company/pool management, but they were dealt with quickly and easily.

Easily one of the best Villas we have ever stayed in, we are already trying to book again for this year! Thanks Donna and Tony

Awful

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in this property in March 2016. I never write reviews but feel compelled to do so because I felt I was ripped off. It was dirty. The pool table was unusable. The pool turned green. Also garbage littered all around the place and a cat which kept coming around to be fed. I have been coming to Playa Blanca for years and thought this place would be something special. Don't be fooled.

Owner's Response: i believe i now know who this review is from but i cannot understand why you would wait 10 months to submit this review anonymously , i have had no complaints from yourself nor anyone in your party , (you actually arrived at my villa on the 18th march) at all and if there were any problems why did you not inform me or my management company at the time of your stay in march 2016 the last communication i had from yourself was the 16th march you were certainly not "ripped off" infact i initially gave you a discount of 225 euros (approx £300) , not once did i hear from you during your stay , i find this review very odd indeed , so much so that i have asked previous clients to put some reviews on here

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this fabulous villa holiday. Absolutely superb a real home from home, everything in the villa you could ask for - took so many bits we did not need as already in the villa. My children, 9 yrs and 6yrs, had an absolute ball in the lovely warm pool and hubby was happy with the Sky! Cannot recommend it highly enough. Short walk into lovely town and beautiful beaches. Weather hot hot hot with lovely breeze. We will definately be booking again - thank you Donna.
