Great villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the villa was spotlessly clean and had that "just cleaned" smell. All the instructions from Joanne were clear and easy to follow and communication was second to none. The location is very quiet and a car is not essential as there is a small shop nearby and the Superdino in town deliver for free. The main town is about an hour walk along the promenade which is a very nice way to get there, buses are cheap and run every 30 mins to near the villa if you don't want to walk.

The villa itself had everything you would need and was very comfortable and we would not hesitate in booking this or any other villas from Joanne in the future.

Top marks.

Lovely villa in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 2 weeks at Villa Mencey and had a lovely time.

We hired a car from the airport and the directions given were easy to follow. The villa is in a residential area which means that although it is lovely and quiet, it is still only a 5 minute drive from the main resort in Playa Blanca.

The villa is very spacious and clean and very well maintained. It has air conditioning in the main bedroom and living area - although the lovely breeze meant that we didn't need to use it much. There are two outside eating areas - both in the much needed shade. There were 4 very comfortable sunbeds and the pool is fantastic, perfect size for splashing around in.

The nearby supermarket had everything we needed for our stay - we did go to a larger supermarket but only once.

The main resort of Playa Blanca is lovely - we particularly liked the Marina Rubicon area especially Lani's Grill Restaurant, Snack bar and Ice cream bar! We also ventured to Fermes in the hills and had a lovely rustic meal, overlooking Playa Blanca - well worth a visit.

Joanne was very easy to deal with and responded to emails promptly and I would not hesitate to use her again or indeed recommend her villas to people looking for a peaceful holiday in Lanzarote.

Excellent villa, Joanne is a pleasure to deal with. Nothing is too much trouble. Wi-Fi, TV etc. first class. Already booked to return to this little gem!! Very clean and beds very comfortable. Very peaceful location, car recommended, but a regular bus service runs at the end of the road. Perfect villa for a relax and a chill.

Very relaxing, peaceful holiday

  • 4 of 5

This was only our second time in Lanzarote but our first time in Villa Mencey and in dealing with the home owner Joanne. The help and advice that Joanne gave was a first for us and proved invaluable. Joanne sent us e-mails regarding where to go, how to get there, what to do, traffic info...the lot! We cant thank her enough. We hired a car on Joanne's recommendation due to the location of the Villa and feel it was essential as it gave us the added freedom.

There is a smallish convenience store close by with some good eating out places and a sports Bar, all within easy walking distance of the Villa but a car definitely is a must to get around.

The Villa is set in a nice quiet location and the pool area gets the sun all day long until late at night. The interior is exactly as it looks on the photos, its clean, tidy and blemish free.

There are only 2 issues I could raise. One is that, as we are not late night party animals, we felt that the interior was a little dark at night with only a single dim light in the lounge, and possible could benefit from an up-lighter or two. The other (although not Joanne's fault as we never informed her) was that no matter how often we tried we could not receive any of the English tv channels. The upside to that though, was that i didn't have to suffer the X factor!

To sum up, we loved it and will most definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review we are glad you had a lovely holiday. Thank you for your comment about the light in the lounge at night, I will be putting a new floor lamp in the villa straight away. With regards to the TV, the system is checked before and after each guests stay to make sure it is working, there are instructions on how to use the facilities left in a information file & I was unaware that you had a issue with the TV. if you had contacted me we reactive in less than 1 hour to any issues. You are the only person in 13 months of having the this TV system in the villa to say you could not use the system and it sounds to me you did not read the instructions as all my other guests say how easy the system is to use, even easier than a sky system,

The Perfect Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was the best we have ever stayed in. It had everything you could possibly want in a hot climate like Lanzarote. It was peaceful, very clean, the Wifi was faultless for both Apple or Microsoft users, the television was great as we could even watch MotoGP which we are addicted to. The furniture was very comfortable and looked very new. The bed was so comfortable we actually enquired about buying one. The instruction manual they leave for you is invaluable. We could go on and on but best of all Joanne and her husband were fantastic. They were really friendly and the couple of slight problems we had they dealt with fasted than the speed of light! We will definitely come back as soon as we can.

Lovely peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa in a quiet and peaceful location and perfect for those who want to relax and leave the rat race behind. The villa has views of the sea and Montana Roja. The villa contained everything you needed and was kept in an immaculate condition by the owners. The pool was well kept and just the right temperature and having the beach towels supplied was an added bonus, although a handrail next to the steps into the pool would make for easier entry/exit for those of us that are not so young and agile but this is a minor issue and personal preference. The wi-fi and internet TV were brilliant and never failed in the entire time we were there so for those of you that still need to maintain links to business etc this would be perfect. There is a lovely beach path to the main resort of Playa Blanca (takes abut 30-45 mins depending on pace) but I would also recommend a hire car as then it is only 5 minutes drive to the main resort. Having said that, there are selection of shops and restaurant near to the villa (5-10 min walking). The local supermarket was good value and had a good selection. This is where you can also get the bus if you do not have a car. All in all a very well kept and maintained villa in a very relaxing area of Playa Blanca and would loved to have stayed longer.
