Casa Palazuelos is a bungalow style villa located just a ten minute stroll away from the stylish Marina Rubicon and all of its facilities. The villa is set on a small, private resedencia. The villa has a master suite with king size bed, patio doors to the terrace and a spacious en-suite bathroom. Two further twin bedrooms benefit from built in wardrobes and a shared family bathroom. The lounge area is luxurious with leather sofa's, pine furniture, flat screen TV, DVD player and English television channels.

To the front of the villa is the wonderfully sunny terrace area for alfresco dining, sunbathing and cooling off in the private pool. The terrace enjoys a sheltered, private and sunny position from 10.30 in the morning right through to sunset. A shaded pergola area has been built to escape those hot days.

About pippa hibbs

Hi, I am Pippa, busy mum of two children aged 5 and 9. I run my own business on our family farm which is a cat hotel and horse livery yard. I've been coming on holiday to beautiful Lanzarote for many years and in 2008 took the plunge and invested in a holiday home for my family. We visit three to four times a year and when we are not using the villa we rent it out to guests.

pippa hibbs purchased this villa in 2008

Why pippa hibbs chose Yaiza

Lanzarote is one of my favorite places and I've been holidaying on the island for many years. I love the landscape contrasts, from the beautiful sandy beaches to the wonderful volcanic lava fields. The island has been designated a world biosphere reserve due to the importance of the ecology and Geology. The climate is so good all year round, it rarely rains and its not as windy as other Canary islands.

Playa Blanca is a safe, relaxed resort. There are plenty of beaches, restaurants and shops but the nightlife is relaxed and there are no big nightclubs or drinking culture that plague many holiday resorts.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Palazuelos is located near the Marina Rubicon which is the newer and upmarket end of the resort.

The villa is private and quiet yet only a ten minute stroll or one minute drive to all the facilities around the Marina.

The Dorada beach is within walking distance also and if you want to stretch your legs the old town and port are a twenty minute walk away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely holiday home. It really was quite lovely and the welcome from your representatives was an added bonus as they were most helpful offering us tips and advice.

The kids loved the pool and the toys in their bedroom were a thoughtful addition.

We took advantage of your book swap and as a family appreciated the sky package on those evenings that we stayed in for a movie night.

I will be recommending your villa and beautiful Lanzarote to my friends.

Thank you from the Watts family.

Comfortable villa, great location.

  • 4 of 5

The villa was a 15 minute walk from the Marina which was lovely, and a bit further on from Playa Blanca which was also very nice.

The villa has everything you need and it felt safe. TV channels were good on the whole but sometimes slowed down.

Cleanliness was ok.

Pool was just a splash pool, not really for swimming, but nice anyway. I would recommend having it heated as this helps to take off the chill.

Great villa in good location

  • 5 of 5

We got easy to follow directions and instructions before arriving, so was able to settle well and easily on the first day. The place was well cleaned and furnished, with our extra requirements like child cot all set up prior to our arrival. Great location close to the Marina, as well as close to the heart of Playa Blanca, so we were able to have great days out shopping and eating when we didn't feel like venturing too far around the island. Would recommend getting the WiFi, as connection and speed was great. We stayed in the winter, but as we had the pool heated, the kids were still able to have much fun in the pool in the winter sun. Any issues we had were dealt really quickly by Pippa as well, so we were able to have a great time and holiday!

Ideally situated and comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

Firstly thanks to owner Pippa for easy to follow directions from the airport. We arrived after 10pm, so it was dark! Numerous late night supermarkets near by, so had time to stop off and stock up; they close between 10-11pm. Best one is in the indoor shopping centre by the marina. Clean and tidy when we arrived. We paid to have the pool heated, a nice plunge pool to dip into during the hot days. Unless you have a mobile phone package for roaming abroad, paying extra for wifi is advised. A suggestion-more information in the welcome brochure about the villa. We eventually found where to dispose of the rubbish. We only worked out how to work the oven/grill after 6 days. We could have called the villa service team, but it wasn't an issue, so didn't trouble them. I would suggest you take a small torch; walk to and from the marina is not well lit during darkness. 15 minute stroll down to the marina, what a lovely place. Spoilt for choice where to eat and drink. A further 20 minute walk along the sea path takes you into Playa Blanca. One nigh we couldn't venture out due to very heavy rain. We ordered online a curry take away. We waited 60 minutes for delivery and watched some DVDs which are available.

Can recommend the villa and Marina Rubicon. Will certainly visit again.

Great trip depsite the weather!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay in our Villa. Great location only 10 minutes walk into the marina and a further 5 onto the beach at Playa Blanca. Villa had everything we needed and the pool was great to play around in at the end of the day. The complex the villa is on is safe and quiet and only wish that the pavements up from the Marina were all completed. Highly recommend for young families

Well for myself and my wife it was right up our street we loved it.

  • 5 of 5

As it was our 1st ever stay in a villa we loved it the experience just so relaxing we thought the property was wonderful but as we have never stayed in any other villas we have nothing to compare with so maybe we are not a good enough judge for this review.We found the area very pleasant and we managed down to the rubicon marina in 15 mins gentle stroll and we are both in our 60yrs old. The only downside for us was some of the street lighting is not yet on line as the area is still being developed but we were warned about that from Pippa prior to our stay and came prepared with a small torch

Excellent villa. We would like t go again.

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location. The villa is situated in a quiet area and the pool is not too deep and deliciously warm. The villa is well equipped and nothing is too much trouble for the owners. I would recommend this villa for both couples who want a quiet retreat and families who want more activity.

Playa Blanca benefits from wonderful beaches. The closest beach to Casa Palazuelos is Dorada beach which is less than two minutes by car or ten to fifteen minutes walking. Dorada beach is sheltered by volcanic rock in the sea which has created a very safe bay to enjoy swimming, snorkeling and all the usual water sports and facilities that you would expect to find.

A ten minute drive away or a boat ride from the Marina are the beautiful, unspoilt Papagayo beaches.


Arrecife is the airport on the island. It is 20km to Playa Blanca.

Cars are available to hire from the airport or taxi's are readily available.

Casa Palazuelos is close to restaurants, bars, shops and the Marina (10 minute stroll) so a car is not essential.

Driving is very easy on the island and relaxed. Car hire often works out to be comparable to hiring taxi's to and from the airport.


Marina Rubicon 0.5 miles.

Dorada beach 0.8 miles.

Playa Blanca old town 1 mile

Papagayo beaches 5 miles.

Timanfaya National Park. 15 miles

Further Details:

The Marina Rubicon is the closest shopping area to the villa and offers a supermarket, designer shops, perfume and cosmetic shops, bowling, mini golf,Scuba diving, sailing school, restaurants, cafe's and bars. It is a lovely place to sit and admire the quite spectacular boats moored in the Marina and to people watch.

Lani's is a great spot to enjoy a drink and to eat reasonably priced food. Fish, tapas and Paella feature prominently on menu's.

A traditional craft market operates at the Marina on a Saturday and a Wednesday and tourists from all over the island come to enjoy the atmosphere and to pick up souvenirs.

Playa Blanca benefits from a promenade which runs from Las Colorados to the lighthouse, a distance of about 4 miles. You can hire bikes or simply stroll along the coast path enjoying the views.

Playa Blanca old town is a fifteen minute walk from the villa. Here you will find many bars, restaurants and shops selling typical tourist souvenirs. The restaurant choice is impressive from traditional Canarian food to steaks, fish, Tex Mex, curry, Chinese and tapas bars.
