About Paul Drake

We live in Southampton where we run our Luxury Boat Charter Company & 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

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 cheap 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

Stayed February 2018

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this villa in February with our family..

It was a good stay and we had all the amenities that we required. The heated pool was cold and the Sky TV was limited. The villa itself could do with an in depth clean and the wall in the master bedroom needs to be addressed before damp really sets in. You also need a car.

Having said all this, it was a good place to stay and I guess it was value for money with great views.

Excellent - Stunning Villa - Can't Wait To Return

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly recommend Bay View Villa. Great location to relax and unwind. Views were amazing. High quality villa.

In terms of price and what you get in return, it has to be one of the best. 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. The heated pool & private 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 photographs don't do the villa justice.

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 (less than €5) and can be caught all over the place. Great walks up the dormant volcano.

Can't wait to return!

Spacious villa, lovely pool and views

  • 4 of 5

Great sized property, slightly further out than I imagined it to be but we'd hired a car and were very glad we had, there are taxi ranks nearby though if you don't want the 45 min walk to town.

The villa is a great size for families, plenty of room and enough loungers and chairs outside for everyone, no umbrella for shade though. The pool is great (although we all fell off the very deep step, funny for anyone who can swim or is over 5 foot!)

Wifi was good, kitchen equipment could have been better and we seemed to run out of towels quickly ( 3 teenage girls though)

Good communication with the owner and very helpful management team

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Well what a wonderful villa, we stayed for a week and it exceeded our expeditions it was very roomy and all rooms having a bathroom was ideal . On arrival we had a welcome pack that was very much appreciated as we arrived late evening. The pool was fantastic and the kids lived in it for the week. A 40 min walk to the shops and restaurants or 5 euros in a taxi. We spent a couple of nights eating at the marina and the rest back at the villa making good use of the BBQ and views from the terrace. Pauls communication excellent all. We will definitely be returning again a big thank you.

Wonderful Villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 11 night stay at Bay View Villa. It was very clean and we had everything we needed.

A family of 5 (3 teenage kids) and all happy.

The views are amazing and it is in a great location.

I would recommend a car if you plan to explore and also do some of the tours, they are worth it.

I highly recommend this villa and will probably be back in the next year or so.

Playa Flamingo
Car: recommended

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 32km 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.
