Ben Ten, Surrey.

Review submitted: March 12, 2009 date of stay: July 2008.

In August 2008 we were looking for a relaxing villa holiday with our two young children. Casa Serena was the perfect family holiday home for our 10 day stay. The villa itself is decorated and equipped to a really high standard; but its the outside area that made it for us. During the day we were in and out of the pool the whole time and in the evenings we barbecued and chilled out whilst watching the sun go down over the fabulous views from the villa. The owners couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome in their villa. Everything about Casa Serena meant that we enjoyed a laid back and relaxed holiday and there is absolutely nothing I could find fault with. I can't wait for our next visit!

Perfect Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fabulous and had absolutely everything you could have asked for. It was cool, comfortable and fabulously equipped. There was plenty of space for the family and plenty to keep our 3 children occupied.

The pool was ideal, big enough to swim and play in and while not overlooked, had stunning views over Playa Blanca and to Fuerteventura.

For us the location was ideal away from the hustle and bustle of the centre but close enough to get to the shops and restaurants. Being slightly up the hillside you always had a cool breeze even on the hottest of days.

We had a brilliant holiday and would definitely book again.

Angela was really helpful with our booking and ahead of our stay with plenty of information to make our holiday easier.

Finally I would like to add one last point. When you book a holiday you always worry about what happens if something goes wrong. Well with this villa you have nothing to worry about as this will testify. After a day out we can back to a pool of water on the drive and by bedtime no water in the villa. We called the extremely helpful Stuart who jumped into action. The water problem was caused by a root that had cut the main water pipe (a really unfortunate bit of bad luck and not anything you could foresee) but this was totally fixed (source traced under drive, hole dug, offending root cut, split pipe replaced) with water back by lunchtime.

So to summarise a lovely villa, great location, really helpful owner, and should you have a problem the safe knowledge that it will be sorted out as soon as is possible. Once again thanks for a lovely holiday.

Home from Home

Great base, home from home. Had a very relaxing 10 days stay here. Great response from Angela when we had a problem with power on our 1st day. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with plans to sit, eat, drink & chillax this is the place to do it! Views are breath taking & within easy access to Playa Blanca. We didn't hire a car ( hubby drives stupid miles with work) 30/40 min walk to Playa Blanca & only €4 euros by taxi. Looking forward to visiting again.

A truly home from home

  • 5 of 5

Having read all the reviews before we left , we were expecting a high standard of accomadation and to say we were not disappointed was an understatement .The first thing we noticed was the welcome pack ( brilliant ) .There was everything you could think of in the villa , excellent wifi , satellite tv , three large bedrooms with ample closet space with 2x ensuites .an extremely well equipped kitchen .the villa was absolutely spotless inside and outside . The pool was just heaven on your doorstep .My children lived in it and I have to admit , so did my self and my wife . The views from the pool were stunning especially in the evening when the sun was setting .I would truly recommend this villa and its owner Angela who was really helpful. We hope to return some day .

Thanks Angela for a really memorable holiday

Regards bobby

Fantastic "home from home"

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this villa, the owners have put in a lot of time and effort into making sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay, to the lovely welcome pack when you arrive to the understanding of a late check out, 5star from start to finish.

The villa has all you need comftably will accomatdate 6 adults, the pool is amazing but for us the views.......wow.....like looking out to a picture postcard of Playa Blanca, superb .

Casa Serena

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful relaxing and peaceful stay at the beautiful and comfortable Casa Serena. The pool was heavenly and lovely and warm and the villa had every "home comfort" including heaters for a couple of cool evenings! Everything we needed was provided and the welcome pack was indeed very welcome. The kitchen is very well equipped although we ate out most of the time at several of the lovely restaurants in Cala Blanca. We enjoyed several trips out and would recommend the Cactus Gardens and Cesar Enrique's house. Beautiful sea and mountain views from the patio and sheltered gardens. We hired a car for our stay but did walk into town one evening and this took about 30 minutes. Would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Casa Serena

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Lanzarote many times now, and over the past five years have been staying in Villas, most lately in Playa Blanca. Of all the villas we have stayed in, this is simply the best. A very accurate description of the location. very easy to find, easy to park, with room for two vehicles off road. No step access to the villa. All the facilities were, if anything, under stated. Having a bathroom in each of the three bedrooms, as well as in the living area is also a helpful feature. All the appliances are fairly new, in good condition and fully working, with INSTRUCTIONS! The location provides stunning views of Playa Blanca, Marina Rubicon, Femes and the mountains, and of course Fuerteventura. It's very quiet at night, and lovely to sit on the terrace, eating al-fresco, watching the ferries arriving. The property is used by the owners when they visit the island, and as such can be said to be a true privately owned villa. Very well-maintained, and exceptionally clean. Very comfy beds, chairs, and an excellent dining table, with pleasant décor. Lovely pool, with excellent outdoor BBQ. Contact with the owner was quick and easy. (We were 'forced' to stay longer owing to the French Air Traffic Dispute.) Viva La France! Angela was very understanding. I would recommend this property to families, couples or small groups of friends. 3 self-contained bedrooms as stated, and a great heated pool. The owner provides pool towels, and the washing machine saves on the packing. We will certainly return. Locally, many restaurant's to try. Go to Faro Park - try Das Travissio for an evening meal, or La Moka for breakfast and cakes. Many, many others

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Arrecife at 30 Kilometres

Coast/Beach:

There are many beautiful beaches in Playa Blanca, the nearest is Playa Flamingo and is approx. 25 minutes walk away. Papagayo beach on the other side of the bay, is an ecological reserve, there is a fee to use it, but, well worth it. You can reach it by car, along a dirt track or by water taxi down at the port.

Travel:

Arrecife airport is 30 minutes away by car. Car hire is useful although not essential. There is a local bus service, every 20 minutes, 10 minutes walk from the villa.

Distances:

Playa Blanca town centre is 35 minutes walk from the villa, alternatively - the bus goes every 20 minutes and takes you on a loop around the town, this lets you get your bearings. The nearest shop is 10 minutes walk away in the hotel, it is good for last minute things or emergency items. Hiper dino is recommended for your shopping and is located opposite the bus station, down a side road. It has fresh fish, meat and deli counters.

Further Details:

The Museo Atlantico.

Underwater sculptures will be at a depth of 14 m and 150 m from the coast of Las Coloradas and within an area of 2,500 m. The statues will be built to last for 300 years, with a combination of architecture; and underwater atmosphere turning the lifeless statues into living and breathing coral reefs.

National park of Timanfaya.

the national park of Timanfaya is a volcanic field where visitors can discover a great variety of geological phenomena as well as a vast array of some 180 different plant species.

Cesar Manrique foundation.

The cesar manrique foundation is the island's cultural centre par excellence that has won international recognition, not only because it houses some of the works of the world famous artist himself.

Jardin de Cactus.

the cactus garden is one of cesar manrique's last works. The artist turned an old quarry into an impressive cactus plantation.

Museum of contemporary art.

The museum of contemporary art is located in Arrecife, in the San Jose castle, a fortress built between 1776 and 1779 by king Carlos iii.

Papagayo beach.

Protected from any development and a sight of natural beauty and local wild life. Papagayo beach is accessed via a bumpy dirt road, which has a toll charge, or you can take a water taxi from the town. A beautiful place to spend the day.

There is also an aqua park near teguise for the younger or just more energetic visitors.

In the town there are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants for you to choose from.

Plus much, much more, you’ll just have to visit to discover more of the secrets lanzarote has to offer.
