Villa With Private Pool And Sea Views, Comfortable Apartment With Sea Views Both - Casita Mariposa (Sleeps 2, 1 Bedroom)



Updated: 01-Jul-2016
Villa and Apartment in Tias, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Extremely Peaceful Location, 15 Minute Drive To The Beach

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.

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 the Owner

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!

Cannot be faulted for the price. Everything you need and in a quiet area.

We have stayed several times and will be back again soon I hope.

Thank you Vicki & J.P for everything!

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for nine days at Casita Mariposa. Vicki is a friendly and helpful owner and emailed advice and instructions promptly. The apartment, although in a quiet, scenic location, is within walking distance of the centre of Tias and the main bus routes. Tias has a well stocked supermarket and numerous restaurants and bars - Vicki's hand drawn map covers all of this! If you hire a car, the apartment is just minutes off the island's main north - south road.

Inside, it's light and airy and the sheltered patio outside the living area is great for al fresco eating, sunbathing and just viewing most of the eastern side of the island and Fuerteventura in the distance.

In short, just right for us, not too formal - so homely and relaxing. Heartily recommended!

Fantastic relaxing short stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend to see our family, and had the most relaxing stay in Vicki's casita. It's a place where we will be coming again and again, as everything is easily accessible but still enough out the way to unwind.

I loved having George (the cat) around aswell, he's a proper little character. We'll be back soon for sure.

Our stay at Casita Mariposa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely 2 weeks at Casita Mariposa. Everything we needed for self catering plus internet access which was a bonus. The apartment has a very comfortable bed and we came home feeling very relaxed and well. Some of the most impressive sunsets and sea views across to Fuerteventura that you could wish for can be seen from the garden. The owners Vicki and JP live nearby, are very helpful but not intrusive, and they offer transfers from the airport. We loved it so much we are returning next year. If you want a nice relaxing away from it all holiday this is the place to go, or you could hire a car and tour the island.

From the Owner

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!

From the Owner

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. CASA MOLINA VILLA: The villa's pool area has high walls & offers complete privacy for those who like to sunbathe in the nude. APARTMENT MARIPOSA: The apartment has its own separate driveway & parking area, plus a peaceful south facing sun terrace. BOTH PROPERTIES: 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.
