About Paul Drake

We live in Southampton with our dog, Bosun, where we run our sea school, Duck-2-Water. For a long time we dreamed of owning a home abroad and spent years searching for just the right place. Lanzarote represents everything we were looking for, lots of interesting things to do and see, the people are friendly, the climate is fab and we love the fresh seafood and Spanish specialities!

Bay View became ours in May 2011 and as well as being a villa for rent, it is our much loved family holiday home.

We have furnished it to make it welcoming and comfortable, as we'd like our guests to feel completely at home and relaxed during their holidays.

Paul Drake purchased this villa in 2011

Why Paul Drake chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We chose Playa Blanca because we love the area. The town has a great selection of restaurants and shops, and the local beaches are clean and safe.

It is only 10 minutes drive from the small fishing village of El Golfo, where you can sit for hours and enjoy the ocean view whilst having a great lunch in one of the tiny restaurants along the beach front.

What makes this villa unique

Of all the villas we looked at while we were searching for our property, this one stood out because it has the most amazing views from the pool terrace - you can see right across the valley to the mountains, the town and the ocean. Day or night, the view is gorgeous.

We like that it is set a little way out of the town, in the quiet and relaxed area of Los Altos. The walk down into the village takes about 25 minutes, but we always get a taxi back up the hill!

We've redesigned parts of the villa and the terrace to provide really comfortable accommodation and hope guests will enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved this villa. In terms of price and what you get in return it has to be one of the best. Decorated really nicely and has a comfortable feel. We stayed at Vista Lobos villas last year and whilst they were bigger and perhaps had other facilities without a doubt Bay View Villa would top our list. We felt at home and relaxed. If we could have gained squatters rights we would! Before we went we were a bit concerned as it seemed quite a way out of the resort but to be honest it was not a problem at all. The added benefit was that it was so peaceful on a night and the views were great. It doesn't take that long to walk in to the main resort and if you really need it the taxis are cheap and can be caught all over the place. One of the biggest things was the size of the master bedroom. It is truly huge with a sofa and TV. The only problem was getting our son off the Wii which was in there! Newton Family, 8-5 Apr 2012

Feels like a beautiful second home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Bay view a number of times over the past few years and it never fails to provide a beautiful base for of our holiday. Well equipped , beautifully presented and we never get bored of the views from the terrace. This particular holiday was over my 30th birthday and it was so lovely of the owners and villa managers to arrange gifts to make it extra special. 5star!

Returning guest. Beautiful villa 5 star

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year holidaying at Bay View and it is as beautiful, clean, bright and well maintained as every previous year. New sun loungers this year made sunbathing all the more enjoyable. Great space, beautiful views, and a lovely warm pool to relax in! Just perfect cannot wait to return. Would recommend this villa and the town of Playa Blanca to anyone . Couples and families alike

The process of booking couldn't be easier or more friendly.

Amazing villa, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We returned for our third stay at Bay View in November 2013 and it was as spectacular as we'd remembered it.

The views are stunning and the location itself so quiet and peaceful - perfect for a chill out by the beautiful (and warm) pool. The pool area is lovely with plenty of comfy seating and sun loungers as well as a great outdoor eating area with a huge Canarian BBQ which got plenty of use.

The villa itself is amazing. It really is a home from home and everything has been thought of but it's really the luxurious decor and furnishings which make it stand out. All 3 en-suite bedrooms are beautifully appointed and comfortable but the main suite is spectacular - massive, with a seating area and a huge flat screen TV.

All in all Bay View couldn't be bettered for style and facilities ... and it's spotless.

We can't recommend it highly enough if you're looking for a perfect stay in Lanzarote.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Bay View Villa was absolutely superb! It has fantastic views of the town Playa Blanca and great sea views! as well as the surrounding mountains. It is well equipped and finished to a high standard. There is so much great things about this villa I don't know where to start!! the Villa is private and very spacious! I could of easily moved in and stayed there for good. There was free WiFi and Sky TV. Even a Wii incase you should ever get bored of the great scenery?! To be honest we spent most our time outside around the private pool and walking along the sea front down in Playa Blanca. There is so many other activities on this amazing Island but to have a Villa that was soo quiet, secluded well equipped with WiFi, pool and beautiful weather we just relaxed and recharged our batteries on the sun terrace around the pool. I will DEFINATELY be going back to Bay View Villa again :D I would recommedn this Villa to anyone it is perfect for a great holiday! It has been set up with all types of families in mind wether its just two on holiday or a family of 6 there is everything for the whole family.

Location

From the Owner

We chose Playa Blanca because we love the area. The town has a great selection of restaurants and shops, and the local beaches are clean and safe. It is only 10 minutes drive from the small fishing village of El Golfo, where you can sit for hours and enjoy the ocean view whilst having a great lunch in one of the tiny restaurants along the beach front.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach, Flamingo Beach, is a 5 min car drive or 20 min walk away. This pretty golden beach is a safe place for families, with parasols and sun beds to hire. Close by, there is a selection of cafes and supermarkets.

Dorada Beach is the 'waterports' beach, with pedalos and jet skis for hire as well as a cafe overlooking the beach providing snacks and drinks.

The popular Papagayo beaches are a 20 minute drive away through a nature reserve, stunning and unspoilt.

Travel:

The Villa is approximately 35km from Arrecife Airport. Car hire is highly recommended, not just to reach the villa but to give you the freedom to explore the island.

Further Details:

Playa Blanca centre is around 25 minutes walk down the mountain, there is a bus stop and a taxi rank approx 10 minutes walk from the villa. The bus goes every 20 mins and the route is a continuous loop from one end of Playa Blanca to the other. There is a small supermercado at Paradise Island Hotel 10 minutes walk away which is fine for basics and essentials. Spar and Hiperdino supermarkets are at Punta Limones and in the town centre. Supermercardo Ropers at Las Coloradas is recommended for great BBQ meat and fresh seafood.

In Playa Blanca itself you will find a good variety of shops and great local restaurants.
