About the property

Sea View Villa Private Pool

Casa Molina is located in a uniquely private, peaceful and tranquil situation. The villa is based on the outskirts of the quaint old town of Tias & is only a ten minute walk to all the excellent amenities Tias has to offer.


Mariposa is a very comfortable one bedroom apartment & is located on the same plot, but it is not next door or near to the villa, therefore assuring privacy and tranquility at all times for both properties. The apartment does not have a pool, but there are many clean and safe beaches nearby. Popular with both sun worshippers & water sport enthusiasts!

Both properties are south facing, and have sun terraces to indulge in sunbathing or to enjoy alfresco dining. Ample and comfortable outside furniture are provided to add to guests comfort & enjoyment.

Good WIFI is available in both properties.

Many guests enjoy a 'working holiday' as the internet is so good!

About Vicki / Juan Pedro

I relocated to Lanzarote after falling in love with this very special island which I immediately felt was “home”. Extensive work was carried out to Casa Molina, & it has been successfully rented out to discerning guests ever since, with many revisiting.

I live close by, so I am always on hand to give advice, make recommendations or assist guests if they have any problems at all!

My other family member is Georgie, a very sociable (castrated) stray cat who adopted us in 2007! However, Georgie will not visit guests unless they want him to. However, if Georgie ever becomes a problem guests only need to inform me.

Casita Mariposa became the second addition to the portfolio, and has proved to be a very popular apartment, with many repeat guests.

El Nido is a large one bedroom apartment with a large sun terrace, & its own private entrance & parking area. This apartment is ideal for a longer let and offers the same peace and quiet & fabulous sea & garden views.

Casa Blanca & Pen's Ancla Studio Apartments

Both offer a comfortable base for both short or long term stays, with a south facing sun terrace & same spectacular sea & mountain views.

Please contact me for further information about these apartments or details of my website.

Most of my guests are repeat guests, and many guests are now also friends.

I take a personal interest in all of my bookings, and I always try to accommodate guests who have special requirements. I have had four honeymoon couples over the years as well as guests celebrating a special wedding anniversary.

I am always available for my guests, and I will respond promptly to any problems that may occur.

I have an excellent housekeeping & maintenance team, and we all work extremely well together.

Our mission is to deliver a high standard of service & care to our guests.

You are very important to us, and we are here for you 24 hours a day ensuring your holiday is stress free and the best it can be!

We look forward to hearing from you!

Vicki / Juan Pedro purchased this villa in 2002

Why Vicki / Juan Pedro chose Tías

The main reason for buying Casa Molina was without a doubt the location! The property also has lots of character with a beautiful lush garden to match.

The varied flora and fauna which inhabit the garden make it all the more special, & all this can be enjoyed away from the busier & noisier areas of Tias.

The villa is located on the very edge of Tias with fantastic access to the the main "ring road" and with its central location, makes access to the rest of the island very convenient and quick.

A short pleasant walk takes you to the centre of Tias with its varied & excellent restaurants.

Plus bakeries, great food shops (fresh & frozen foods),

Medical Centre which is open 24 hours a day.

Florists, hairdresser, pharmacy.

Despite the vast amenities on offer, Tias remains a very friendly & unspoiled small town. The locals are extremely helpful & very welcoming!

A short car drive or bus journey will take you to the small beach resort of Playa Honda, which hosts our new Overseas food shop, which sells Iceland & most English food products. Here at Christmas and fancy a mincepie, you'll find these here!

If you want to stay in a quiet, peaceful and non commercialised location, and still want good public transport and amenities then ...... our properties are for you!

Come and find out for yourself!

What makes this villa unique

The one thing that Casa Molina & Casita Mariposa both have to offer,

that some other Tias villas & apartments do not, is undoubtedly the privacy and peace & quiet away from the crowds plus the amazing uninterrupted sea views!

The photos do not do the views justice, you have to come and see these for yourselves. Read the testimonials of previous guests.


The villa's pool area has high walls & offers complete privacy for those who like to sunbathe in the nude.


The apartment has its own separate driveway & parking area, plus a peaceful south facing sun terrace.


Both properties offer fantastic uninterrupted sea views, which are breathtaking by day, and magical by night!

The owner, Vicki is sometimes at home in a property close by, and is readily available if required. In her absence, her manager is available.

Vicki's property, when she is at home is totally separate from the villa and apartment, & Vicki will only visit guests if requested. Some guests like the fact that the owner (an ex-nurse) is on hand if required.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Not as described, cockroach infestation, damp

  • 1 of 5

Very tired property had a bad cockroach problem due to damp in corridor between kitchen and living room, also large windows onto pool area were padlocked shut as this window was coming away from wall, bad water damage to kitchen cupboards, second bedroom was locked so cannot comment on that the family bathroom was damp, washing machine in property is shared with another property but you only find this out when you arrive. Owner was not helpful we were booked for 3 weeks but left after a week due to all problems owner would not refund money so will be taking this up when we get home. Really spoilt our holiday

Owner's Response: 1. Not one cockroach was seen by myself or my housekeeping staff, when they carried out a clean after the first week. 2. Definitely NOT infested with cockroaches. Matthew did say to me and another person that his wife was paranoid, and cockroaches were indigenous to the island. Again, when I asked if a cockroach had been kept for me to see, not one was produced. No other guests in the nearby apartments complained of cockroaches. 3. The large 'picture window' in the sitting room is locked for safety reasons. 4. The utitlity room which is referred to as a 'corridor' houses the washing machine. This washing machine is for the sole use of the villa guests & is not shared by other properties. 5. I organized for a pest control person to call, but Diane said she could not wait for him. I subsequently cancelled the appointment, as no cockroaches were observed and I have never ever had a problem with them.

Casita Mariposa, a Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in Casita Mariposa in June 2015 and liked it so much we returned for 2 weeks in April 2016.

What a pleasant surprise we had to find that Mariposa had been completely renovated and indeed, I believe we were the first guests since the renovation was finished.

The toilet/walk in shower has been renewed from top to bottom, the living/dining area has been tastefully remodelled giving much more room and the apartment has been totally repainted leaving it very fresh and clean (and that's only the work that can be seen by guests!).

Vicki and JP really have to be congratulated on the amount of work that has been carried out to make Casita Mariposa such a first class, beautiful, tranquil and relaxing place to spend your holidays. The views from the front door and garden are breathtaking and the sunsets are gorgeous, the terrace is South facing with lots of room for sunbathing if you so desire.

We certainly wished we had booked for longer but have already booked for 3 weeks in April 2017!

We love this apartment, we love the peace and quiet, we love the location, we love the informal atmosphere, and Vicki the owner is so friendly and helpfull but not intrusive, it is also comforting to know that Vicki is not too far away should the need arise.

As the title suggests, it is a " Home from Home" for us rather than a holiday home and we intend to return for many years to come.

David and Marjory

Peace & Comfort.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for a perfect holiday. Stunning views, comfortable and peaceful, yet everything you may need a short walk away in Tias.

Great hosts in Vicki & J.P!

Our third time at the Villa and hope to return soon.

Perfect for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Vicki and Juan Pedro's apartment in July and had a wonderful holiday! The apartment is excellent, in a beautiful setting with fantastic views. Its location it's perfect, within a 2 minutes walk to reach the supermarket, shops, bars and restaurants of Tias. A ten minute drive brings you to Puerto Carmen with its vast array of shops and beach front restaurants and large open beach. We would recommend hiring a car to see this wonderful island and all it has to offer. Vicki and Juan Pedro were both extremely helpful providing us with all the information we needed for our 3 week stay. The apartment was really well equipped and comfortable. Would highly recommend for people who enjoy peace and tranquillity.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Casita Mariposa is a lovely apartment for two people. It's just as described with a small lounge and kitchen in one room. A very spacious bedroom with a comfortable bed and plenty of storage space. The bathroom is also spacious and the shower worked very well. The apartment was very clean on arrival.

It's in a quiet spot with plenty of parking available. The views from the front of the apartment are beautiful. Just a few minutes walk away is the centre of Tias with lots of restaurants, cafes, a lovely bakery and a very well stocked supermarket.

If you're driving then it's very easy to reach the main roads from where you can explore all of Lanzarote. Driving here is a pleasure and the roads are very well maintained.

We enjoy walking and there are lots of places to walk in Lanzarote.

The Timanfaya national park is well worth a visit as is the cactus garden.

Vicki is a lovely person and very easy to deal with. She gave us lots of tips on where to go, what to see and where to eat.

I would definitely recommend staying in this apartment. In fact we enjoyed it so much, we have already booked to return next year.
