About Joanne

There is just so much freedom. No crowded pool, no fight for the sun loungers, no rubbish hotel food and the queues to get it. You decide when and where you want to eat, go out or stay in. No endless sets of stairs just to fetch 1 thing, just nip back in the villa. Giving you lots more quality family time together and we feel a better relaxed holiday all together.

We hope to welcome you soon.

Joanne purchased this villa in 2006

Why Joanne chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We decided to buy Casa Maranda as Playa Blanca was our favorite place to visit and when the plots were avalable we just knew. We went out to Playa Blanca for my husbands 40th birthday and the villa ended up been his rather large birthday present and it is now our pride and joy. We have guests that return every year and are now our friends. Playa Blanca is located to the south of Lanzarote. Life in Playa Blanca started out as a very simple fishing village but as Lanzarote has became more popular with tourists Playa Blanca has grown into a thriving and popular resort. Playa Blanca has a new marina which has been build, this new marina (Marina Rubicon) is host to many top class restaurants and boats, marina rubicon is an ideal places to wonder around shopping and have a bite to eat.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Maranda is in the perfect location, front line in a small residential cul-d-sac. If you wish to go into playa blanca it's a 5 minute drive or you can jump in a taxi or on the local bus loop (very cheaply). If not you can walk into Faro park (10 mins) where you will find 2 shops (great selection). There are restaurants / take away, the light house cafe (fab food at fab prices).There is also a local bakery for freshly baked bread and cakes to die for.there is 3 bars 2 serving food.

We aim to really please.

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Once again excellent

  • 5 of 5

There is not a lot I can say that hasn't been already said.

Joanne and Nigel are a joy to deal with, and will do everything they can to ensure you have an excellent stay.

Villa is extremely clean and all that you need for your stay. TV is excellent, as I had broken my foot just prior to arriving and couldn't do the amount of walking we normally do, so in the evenings the TV was a must.

Really wish we were still there!

We will be back and thoroughly recommend you book with Joanne & Nigel.

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic villa! We have not had this much value for money in a villa before and have stayed in quite a lot. Good private location, sea views, quiet area, good local amenities....whats not to like?

The villa itself is modern, spotlessly clean and has so many features you couldnt possibly be bored - heated pool, hot tub, pool table, beach / garden toys, board games, stereo, inside and outside dining tables, alarm, safe etc but the tv system....wow! 3 systems that mean you can get the usual Freeview channels like BBC, ITV, CH4, CH4 plus Sky Sports and hundreds of other English speaking channels. 3 bedrooms (the small one can get hot) mean it can hold 6 people comfortably.

We spent a week here and would loved to have had longer but it was booked up ;( We spent alot of the time around the pool on the sunloungers and were lucky that we had 7 whole days of sun. The villa gets full sun all day long and the pool area is quite private, you get odd passers by but the front wall obsures prying eyes.

For young kids as well as the amenities above there is also a small play area with swings and slides.

Walking distance (5 mins) to Faro Park;

A decent mini market for essentials

Good local restaurants - La Trevisama, Port of Call, La Flamenca

A longer (20 mins) walk to La Mulata complex with;

Marea Terrazza - fantastic cocktail / chillout bar (what views!!)

El Argentino - excellent steak house

Sebastyans - upmarket(ish) but excellent Greek food

Fazz's - great indian restaurant...try the lunch / early bird menu

Timanfaya National Park - 10 mins drive

The sea front promenade is 5 mins from the villa and walking distance to the closest decent beach Flamingo is 30 mins - for families with young kids this is an excellent beach we loved it on here. If you have a car, the beaches, harbour and town centre are 5 mins casual drive away and Marina Rubicon is 10 mins.

Thank you Joanne for a great holiday and being easy to deal with and hope to see you again next year!

Fantastic Villa.

  • 5 of 5

Once again a lovely break in Lanzarote,in our favourite resort of Playa Blanca.this is the third time we have stayed here,and like the other times we have found this villa to be spotlessly clean,and very well appointed with everything you will need for a great holiday.the children especially like the heated pool,the playstation and other board games.from our point of view nothing is to much trouble for the owners they could not be more helpfull.There is a very good choice of local bars,restaurants and shops locally,and and a lovely picturesque walk down the coastal path,you will find even more,including lots of holiday activities on offer to suit everyone.

Excellent "home from home" experience in an extremely well appointed villa. Quality fixtures and fittings and an excellent outside space. The villa itself is tastefully decorated and everything is of a very high standard. The gardens are landscaped and the area is large and peaceful. The villa is within walking distance of local bars and restaurants and within a short drive of Rubicon Marina where there is no shortage of bars and restaurants appealing to all ages and budgets. All in all, a fantastic holiday location and one I would strongly recommend to anyone considering letting this villa

peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The villa is set in a lovely quiet developement,was spotlessly clean and very well equiped with everything and more than expected to enjoy our holiday.Having access to free wifi was great for keeping in touch with friends and family,and on the odd night in watching the internet TV to watch some of our favourite Tv programmes.The local amenities were very good,including a supermarket,Bakery,Restaurants and a very good bar(Lounge).The Island has lots to offer,and i would not hesitate to book this villa or any of the others owned/managed by this family when we return in the future.

5* review for 5* villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Casa Maranda because we had enjoyed our holiday there in 2013 and were extremely happy with the villa and the facilities provided.

There were many reasons we came back, not all exclusive to Casa Maranda (ie the superb restaurants, bakery etc within walking distance) but the villa itself provided everything we required and were looking for.

Top of the list was the hot tub, which we spent many an hour enjoying, watching the clouds float past, or the stars in the sky. Although close to the main road, there is very, very little traffic passing and the tub is entirely private.

Even I ventured into the swimming pool this year (an act of immense bravery on my part!), and to have that as an option with the villa is lovely. There is a stone barbeque available to use, which we made use of too.

The kitchen has everything that is required on holiday, and a washing machine is available if needed to freshen up the clothes that you consistently wear all holiday, even though you may have brought an entire wardrobe with you (like me) ...

Casa Maranda is located on a main road but this should in no way deter you. There is so little traffic passing it's not even worth worrying about. It's easy to get to from the airport in a car and as mentioned above, is within walking distance of great restaurants (try Dal Trevisano, Italian restaurant), a bakery (we brought 2 almond crossiants home in our suitcase for breakfast when we got home as you just can not get anything of that quality here) and a supermarket.

To get into central Playa Blanca from Casa Maranda is about 10 minutes by car or a lengthy (best part of an hour) walk along the coastline (not one to do with young children). We did this walk as it is so beautiful, if a little tricky underfoot in some parts!

Although located in the south western part of Lanzarote, travelling to the north of the island and back within a day by car is entirely possible. Therefore all the sites you might want to see are within easy access of Casa Maranda.

We have every intention of going back to Casa Maranda in the future because we have just has the most perfect holiday there. It's a very comfortable, well provisioned villa and probably the best place we have ever stayed at.
