About Christine Murray

Having spent many years holidaying in Lanzarote in the resorts of Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen - one particular holiday we decided to follow the sunshine down to Playa Blanca (the sunniest part of the island). Just 30 minutes from the airport we enjoyed the resort so much (it has everything you could need for a relaxing but entertaining holiday) we decided to purchase a villa for our family. As an Irish owner we decided to furnish our villa to a very high standard and hope that we have achieved something different to the standard villas currently on offer. Having a small child ourselves we have kept the decoration in mind for this, great relaxing areas, ample outside play areas and of course, the all important heated pool.

Christine Murray purchased this villa in 2005

What makes this villa unique

Tranquility and relaxation. The garden and pool area is a suntrap during the day but has an ample shaded alfresco dining area - perfect for lazy lunches by the pool. Casa Rachel is ideal for families and small groups - as it's in a peaceful location yet within 5 minutes you are in the heart of the resort which boasts a wide array of restaurants, beaches and bars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic Home from Home.

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I, along with my Recently married Son, His Wife and two children stayed at Casa Rachel for eight nights.

It was a complete joy from start to finish.

The Villa is situated a fair distance from the centre of Playa Blanca, but I had hired a car, and with a six seater Taxi costing 4 euro's, it wasn't a problem.

The Villa itself is Beautiful, and the Gated community it is on, is very quiet and clean.

The Pool was the main focal point throughout our stay, and the fact that the Weather was superb for the whole duration of our stay, meant that we all spent a lot of our Daytime hours in it.

I was glad that I paid the extra to have it heated, as we went to one of the Water Parks while we were there, and the water was absolutely freezing.

The facilities in the Villa are top notch, I've stayed in a few Properties on the Island and the rest of the Canaries, and I can honesty say that Casa Rachel is the nicest and best value for money of any of them.

The IPTV package came in handy for the Football while we were there, and the kids like the children's channels in the morning while having their breakfast.

The beds have been mentioned numerous times in other reviews, and are as comfy as stated.

The Pool is a good size, and nice and shallow at one end, which is the main reason I booked the property, as my six year old Granddaughter is not a good swimmer.

The pool was cleaned on the Thursday during our stay, but as I made sure to put the cover on of an evening, and made sure that we all showered before entering it, it didn't get particularly dirty.

The Three legged Cat was adopted on day one by my Wife and Grandchildren, and slept on the Patio every evening we were there.

It must have put on half a stone in weight, the amount of food that was bought for it.

I was amazed to read some of the comments in the visitors book, about the towels not getting changed during the week, some people must not be able to work the Washing machine provided to them.

We washed everything the day before we left and packed them once they had dried to take home with us.

All in all, the Villa is a Fantastic property, Superb value for money, and Myself and my Family will definitely book it again in the future ( probably Easter if I get my way ), or recommend it Family and Friends.

The Communication with Christine beforehand and Rhian, while we were there, was first class as well.

Superb Villa - everything you could wish for

  • 5 of 5

My experience of Casa Rachel was by far my best and nicest experience of holiday Villa accommodation and location in Lanzarote. I had been to Lanzarote before but not been to Playa Blanca or stayed in such beautiful accommodation. I absolutely loved it. The property on arrival makes you feel so good with the garden, flowering shrubs and the heated pool and outside space just so clea and inviting when you arrive. The property is so spacious, beautifully furnished, very secure and you can tell it is so wonderfully and lovingly maintained by the owners to allow it's guests to make this a very personal and special family holiday. The heated pool is so clean and well maintained and all the sun chairs and furniture outside to enjoy the pool and the garden the whole day through. Breakfast in the morning outside in the sunshine looking at the pool and garden was heaven on earth. I loved that you could walk out in the morning from each bedroom straight onto the pool area. The bathrooms are excellent and plenty of them for a family. All the Sky and Wifi facilities you could ask. Kitchen is just lovely and so well laid out with everything from large fridge freezer, dishwasher, lovely tableware, cooking facilities and every utility you could want if you did choose to cook in and use the dining area inside and out. The barbeque facility is also of a very high standard with all the room around the pool and garden to enjoy it on a wonderful sunny evening. The beds are the most comfortable I have experienced on holiday and the rooms are a great size. The washing machine and laundry area is a huge plus and the care that the owners have put into ensuring the cleaners and pool care is of the highest standard. I cannot recommend this property enough to anyone and as I said earlier, the owners have put so much into ensuring that this property has everything to make it a home away from home for a very personal holiday experience.

Perfect villa for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Casa Rachel in April 2017, and found it perfect for what we needed from a holiday villa. The weather was lovely throughout so the main attraction was the fabulous pool that was used every day. It was beautifully warm and the steps into the shallow end were just right for our 4-year old daughter to ease her into the water, and allow her to play safely. The deep end meanwhile suited all the adults just fine.

Another real plus were the beds. You are never quite sure what you're going to get on holiday, but these were by far the most comfortable we've experienced in a number of years of coming to Lanzarote.

We did not do a lot of cooking at the villa, preferring to eat out in and around the port and marina, but we had no complaints about the kitchen utilities. There was always plenty of hot water too and we made use of the washing machine without any problems.

We have booked to come back to Casa Rachel in October 2017 and are very much looking forward to it. Recommended.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 10 days at Casa Rachel.

The Villa is situated in a quiet part of Playa Blanca but with easy access to shops, restaurants and the Marina. It was clean and well maintained and the Management were very helpful as was the Owner when requesting information on Car Hire when booking. The pool area of the Villa was lovely and had a good supply of sun beds, chairs, tables etc, together with water floats and toys to use in the pool. The interior was spacious and the kitchen very well equipped, the lounge having the benefit of Sky Movie Channel and a selection and of Board Games. Would recommend visiting the Marina for evening meals in particular La Casa Roja which is a beautiful restaurant and was very welcoming. We also visited Puerto Calero and spent an afternoon on the Submarine Safari which was great fun. We had a very relaxing holiday and hope to go again next year.
