About the property

Villa in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Quiet Residential Area With Communal Pool, 10 Mins To New Golf Course, Only 5 Mins Walk To Beach

This is a private villa situated in a popular area in Puerto Del Carmen. It stands in its own grounds with gardens and terrace areas. There is a communal pool. The property is just five minutes walk from the main coast road where you will find restaurants, shops and bars. The first shop you come to is the supermarket for all of your day to day needs. Opposite you will find a small beach, but turn left and you will find Los Pocillos where you can try the water sports, or alternatively, turn right and head for the main beach with its sunbathing and more family orientated entertainment. A short drive inland brings you to, first, Rancho Texas, an American themed park with wild animals, bird displays, red Indian village and much more. Try the line Dancing in the evening for fun. Then the golf course; newly opened it is receiving exceptional reviews. Full English TV package inc sky sports and movies and WIFI available.

Complete home from home

  • 5 of 5

I have recently returned from a 15 night stay at Casa Jim with my daughter and her partner. From the moment we booked we had no problems, easy payment method and fantastic communication from Dean.

Upon arrival we were delighted with the property. This delight only grew as the stay progressed. Absolutely everything you can think of was within the property, fantastic cooking facilities, wine stoppers and a jug for sangria!

The beds were incredibly comfortable, proper mattresses and duvets, which were required in February. Plenty cupboard & drawer space.

2 bathrooms, 2 showers and plenty hot water for all of us to shower one after the other daily.

There is wifi in the property, which for the most part done the job. The TV works via Internet which was a great asset during our stay, although this won't be a requirement for everyone, it was nice to watch the odd movie at night.

The outside space, although facing onto the street, felt lovely and secluded, with well kept garden area. Flooded with sunshine and a wide range of either lounger, deck chair or outdoor table to enjoy Al fresco living. The villa doesn't look out onto the pool, but this meant that our front garden area really did feel private. Those villas facing onto the pool can be overlooked by anyone passing by. The pool is literally a few yards down and accessed by a secure gate.

The villa itself is set back 3-4 streets from the main drag. There is a spar approximately a 5min walk which is very well stocked, a butcher counter within, and is reasonably priced. From there turning left will see you very quickly in Matagorda. Turn right and there are an abundance of bars, cafes & restaurants all offering fairly priced food and drinks. If you hire a car there is plenty on street parking outside the villa and parking in Lanzarote is mostly free.

Casa Jim was a fabulous find. We all greatly enjoyed our holiday, and felt completely relaxed throughout. So much so I have already booked to return for the month of March next year.

Fab place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay at Casa Jim during July and the weather was fab too, hitting 28c on many days. As has been said before, the bungalow was beautiful clean & the equipment list is brimming with everything you need. It’s in a quiet location but in a 5 minute brisk walk or an 8 minute very leisurely stroll you are down at the sea front amongst it all, with all the shops, restaurants and small supermarkets. You don’t really need a car unless you want to explore the island, if you do, use Autoreisen, our VW Polo was just 110 Euros for our stay. Difficult to find any negatives with Casa Jim, if we wanted to be really picky we could say the kitchen is a little dated but all the white goods are bang up-to-date and above all, they all worked! There is even a Nespreso coffee machine but you’ll need to bring your own capsules. It was good to have the optional use of the air con/heating, it wasn’t expensive to run. Beds & pillows were very comfy too. Sky TV, including all the sports channels, Wi-Fi & Hi-Fi all worked well. We had a slight problem with the shower room door handle but Dean, who manages the property, was round in a jiffy & fixed it. Don’t usually do reviews but thought this place deserved one. And, we’ve booked again to go back there in October!

Very Nice and Clean Villa.

  • 5 of 5

Everything that has been said about this villa in previous reviews can only be said again, but I won't. Just come and experience for yourselves what this villa is all about. You have everything you need here Sky television, Internet, and much much more. It is only a short walk down to the Avd De Las Playas and you are among all the shops, bars and restaurants. So I do not have any hesitation in Recommending this villa to anyone who wants a stress free holiday in Puerto Del Carmen.

Casa Jim Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Jim was everything we hoped for and more. Extremely comfortable, peaceful, well maintained, secure and spotlessly clean. We immediately felt at home here with everything you could wish for, good WiFi connection, Sky TV and over 600 films to choose from which was essential as the weather was not so good over our four week stay. The lovely promenade with numerous bars and restaurants and a large Spa supermarket were a short walk away. It was very nice to meet Dean who manages the property for the owners, he answered all our email enquiries promptly and efficiently. The villa is situated in a lovely residential area on the outskirts of Puerto del Carmen, the airport is only 10 mins away and the taxi was 12 euros. The Old Town is a good 45 minute walk but well worth the effort although it is only 5euros by taxi. The big question is would we come back and the answer is YES definitely.

Great value

  • 4 of 5

Excellent value for money. Handy for beach, restaurants, shops and main prom all in easy walking distance. The holiday home was clean and well equipped. No need for a car to enjoy a quiet holiday in Puerto Del Carmen. Communal pool is fairly small and lacks sun shades.

This holiday home is obviously loved by the owners. We will definitely return.

Villa in Lanzarote

  • 4 of 5

The villa is very tastefully furnished and has everything that you would need. The beds were very comfortable including the pillows! The patio area is lovely and a great place to sunbathe on the sun loungers provided.

It is just a short walk to the main promenade where there are plenty of shops and a variety of restaurant's but the area around the villa is so quiet & peaceful.

Dean was very helpful with any queries that we had. I would definitely recommend this villa for a lovely relaxing holiday.
