About Glenn Hanson

I have a philosphy in life which is "it is far easier to get it right than to get it wrong".

I believe that to provide someone with an excellent standard of accommodation that leaves them immediately feeling that "wow factor" means they will come back to the property again and again, as well as recommend it to others. So getting it right is very important in all that I do.

Mi Casa is our private holiday home. It is purposely intended to be very much a home where you can relax and unwind. You will not find stacks of brochures or unlimited amounts of touring guides. Prior to your holiday your will be sent some useful notes and information and there is some in the villa too, but looking at the visitors book is the best guide - comments from people who have spent time there.

Glenn Hanson purchased this villa in 2002

Why Glenn Hanson chose Yaiza

I had a goal of having a home in the sun with my own private swimming pool. The emphasis was on a "home" and somewhere that I really felt I wanted to be.

Faro Park provided that opportunity -individual detached villas where I was able to put my own personal stamp on the property. Plus the added value of all year round sunshine.

The villa is in an excellent position, very private next to a "green area" and sheltered by palms.

I always say it is a great "chill" place where you can relax and unwind. It is extremely peaceful.

Despite its quiet location there is easy walking access to nearby shops and bars and the rugged coastline is only a five minute stroll.

What makes this villa unique

The property is in a well maintained residential area, close enough to walk to local shops and bars, yet far enough away to give a quiet and peaceful retreat.

It has a private garden with its own kidney-shaped swimming pool where you can relax, soak up the sun and feel totally at home.

There is a local bus service which takes you right along the coastal area of Playa Blanca - from Faro Park, into the main town and right through to the new marina (Rubicon).

Brilliant, fully equipped villa in a peaceful location with a great sized, heated pool!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I really can not recommend this villa highly enough to anyone looking to stay in the Playa Blanca area. Everything was made so easy and stress free, exactly what you want from a holiday!

On booking, we were sent a confirmation email within a day and told to expect details about the villa closer to the time of our stay. Communications from Mr Hanson were great and as promised, 30 days before, we were sent all the information re the villa and instructions on the location of the property and how to access the villa on arrival etc.

On arrival in Lanzarote, we made our way to the villa. We decided to rent a car and the villa was around a 40 min drive from the airport through beautiful, undulating Lanzarote countryside.

Arriving at the villa, we followed the instructions given and accessed the property no problem. The villa has an alarm system but it’s extremely easy to use.

The villa itself was brilliant inside and out. It really is a home away from home. It has a living room with beautiful high ceilings and a separate dining area with plenty of seating and space to dine in comfort. The pool was amazing and is fully heated so even on cooler days, is lovely and warm. Our kids absolutely loved it! The BBQ was great addition and we managed to use it a few times during our stay.

There are a wide selection of books, a TV with a variety of channels including films and sports, a DVD player, CD player and WiFi, much appreciated!

In terms of location it’s so peaceful and quiet, yet accessible and has a selection of shops, bars and restaurants within a 5 min walk. We had a walk down the coastal path to the lighthouse and beaches, a hike up Montaña Roja and a visit to the Aqualava water park. All are within minutes of the villa.

Any queries/problems you may have while staying, there is a management team on hand who are extremely helpful and easy to contact, even on a Sunday evening. Many thanks!

Again, if you’re thinking of staying in the Playa Blanca area, I can not recommend Mr Hanson’s villa highly enough. We loved our stay and would definitely like to return in the not too distant future. Thanks again!

Comfortable, well equipped villa in good area with lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we made enquiry Glenn was brilliant, he was polite, efficient, informative and very helpful giving us extensive details about villa and area before we arrived and also a personal message before we left England. Villa was just what we wanted. Clean, very comfy, in a good area with shops and bars/restaurants nearby. We had every facility in villa and lovely pool. My disabled husband especially appreciated TV with so many good channels. We have been visiting Lanzarote for over 30 years and had a great holiday and will come back again and would like to Thank Glenn one of the best properties we have been to.

Great for chillaxing

  • 4 of 5

Situated in Faro Park this is a lovely villa to just chill and relax at to recharge your batteries. 2 minutes walk from an excellent row of restaurants to suit all tastes, a couple of supermarkets and an off licence. Takes approx 10 mins. by taxi to get to the town centre of Playa Blanca. I would have no hesitation recommending this villa to anyone.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

WOW, First impression as you walk through the door, Spotlessly clean and VERY well equipped (even down to shoe polish/brushes should you require them) this villa has everything. The swimming pool was amazing and we were in there most of the time, Weather was fantastic in the high 20s all week , came home with a great tan :) The local bus service (no 30) into playa blanca was excellent and runs every half hour. We went on the chill out cruise to papagayo beach another WOW , fishing/snorkling/bbq/drinks all on board. WE will most certainly be returning and have no hesitation in reccomending Glenns Villa to friends/family. The defo plus for my son was the sky sports/internet all included , Thankyou very much Glenn for sharing your beautiful villa with us . Clare,Justin & Emily

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Having had friends stay at this villa the year before, we all returned this year for our summer break.

It lived up to the compliments my friends gave it, with fantastic TV, internet, seating, loungers, and all the usual home comforts you would expect.

It was perfectly clean and the living area being very spacious. The small wall out to the pool area would be very good should you take small children, avoiding them running ‘straight’ out and in to pool.

The loungers were lovely with thick cushions, and recliner chairs for evening were very relaxing.

The gardens and pool were kept lovely.

We are now looking to book next year for a return stay.

Only minor downside is that there is no beach towels supplied, so please either bring or buy, on your way from the airport :)

Thank you Glenn :)

Special interest holidays:

There are a number of local diving schools plus the area is ggod for walking (a walk up Montana Roja is recommended for its views). Plus there are many areas of interest to visit - the volcano at Timafaya just to name one.


The rugged coastline is only a 5 minute stroll. Beaches can be found in nearby Playa Flamingo, in the centre of Playa Blanca and Papagayo which is a short drive away, but provides lots of white sandy beaches - reputed to be the best on the island.


Arrecife airport is only 35 minutes drive. Car hire is readily available and the journey from airport to villa largely a straight run. Taxis are available at the airport.

There is a very good local bus service running the length of the coast line around Playa Blanca.


Playa Blanca is only a few minutes drive away where you will find many bars and restaurants from which to choose. Local taxis can be obtained and the bus only takes a few minutes to whisk you into town.

There are some local shops and bars which are only a five minute walk from the villa.
