About Steve Major
We purchased this property in Feb 2012 after spending a few holidays in this type of villa on the Faro Park area of Playa Blanca. We like to think of it as a home from home with the creature comforts we expect at home (apart from a private pool and sunshine). We are a young at heart family with a 5yr old daughter, we love to be outside whenever we can. Hopefully you can enjoy the villa as much as we do.

Why Steve Major chose Lanzarote
We are not really beach people hence the pool was a must and even though Lanzarote can get very hot it never feels too hot due to the breeze, we don't like it too hot.
What makes this villa unique
We like to think of it as a home from home with the creature comforts we expect at home (apart from a private pool and sunshine). We are constantly upgrading things as we go along. It is a very quiet area perfect for relaxing, enjoying the pool and sunshine. The local area has some really friendly bars and Restaurants on our doorstep. Playa Blanca and Marina Rubicorn are 5-10mins drive and have everything you might need. For those cooler evenings there is SKY HD with movies, sports etc.....

We have stayed at villas in Faro Park before and this was certainly one of the nicer ones, although all have been nice! We arrived to a welcome pack of essentials which was a lovely thought. The location is excellent - 5 minutes (if that) walk to the local shops, bars & restaurants. The villa is decked out really nicely, and had extra sunbeds which came in handy when friends staying at a nearby villa dropped in! The Wifi and Sky tv are good extras which keep the whole family happy. The pool was always warm enough and kept very clean. We had very good service with linen and towel changes. The patio/garden area is nice & big, with ample space to sun yourselves. Overall this villa is lovely, and the location is spot on.
The only niggles worth mentioning were that the door for the twin room couldn't be shut - the catch was actually missing - and the fridge handle has a crack down it and feels like it might snap at some point.
Ron and I had a super 1 month holiday in Shelly Banks, it was our 4th time in Faro Park but this was the nicest villa. We love the location and used the local restaurants quite a lot and they were all very good and very friendly. Its worth staying at Faro Park for the lovely view at the end of the road, we loved sitting and watching the tremendous surf. Have booked again already!
We had such a lovely time at Villa Shelly Banks last year. The villa was spotless and had everything we needed. The kids never wanted to leave Villa which is a good sign. Beautiful views. Convenience shop just round the corner also Lighthouse café which was great, we ate here 2 or 3 times but did most of our cooking at the Villa. The nearby bakery sold lovely croissants and pain au chocolat which were lovely and fresh. Everything was reasonably priced and I would definitely recommend this villa & resort to friends. The owners were so helpful before and during our visit, if you book you will not be disappointed!!!
We have stayed here for the last 2 years and highly recommend this villa. It's spacious and well equipped and has a lovely heated swimming pool and outside dining area. Great communication with the owner at all times and now Internet.
If you want a nice villa in a very peaceful location with great weather stay here, it's like a home from home.
We have been visiting the Villa 4 years and it is always immaculately presented. It is in a lovely quiet position in a large plot.
This spacious Villa has everything we need and now WiFi.
There are shops and restaurants within walking distance.
The owners are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
We found a real gem when we first visited and can't recommend this Villa enough.
Villa Shelly Banks Excellent!!...
We had our holiday here in September 2013 and have just booked to go back this year. It was excellent and the villa was well equipped with everything that you could need/want and the children are well catered for with dvd's and pool toys. It was clean and tidy with fresh bed linen and towels. Steve and Alex are very friendly and helpful and are always there to help with any queries. The only thing is we are going to hire an aircon unit this time as it was quite sticky at times especially at night having to have the doors and windows locked with children. There is a café "The Lighthouse Café" on site and we visit there everyday without fail as the food is brilliant! the supermarket on site also has everything you will need. Looking forward to coming back!! Thank you.
