Villa Shibui. A lovely 2 bed/2 bath modern villa situated in Nazaret, a quiet village 10 mins by car from the resort of Costa Teguise. Ideally situated for exploring Lanzarote and all it has to offer, including Famara's famous beaches, La Geria wine valley and the nearby historic town of Teguise. A perfect holiday home for those seeking peace and quiet. Great restaurants are close by. The nearest is the famous LagoMar a short walk away. Villa Shibui is equipped with everything you could possibly need and might expect from a luxury holiday villa. The internet connection has been improved and is excellent. Satellite TV is installed and a comprehensive DVD and music selection is there for your use. For when it may too hot, we've had air-conditioning installed in both bedrooms. Kate and Mark look after the villa and make sure it's spotlessly clean and in excellent condition. They are also there to help in any way they can should you need them. A welcome pack is provided, of course.
This is our 'home from home' which we try to keep up to a standard that anyone would expect. We purchased Shibui in 2003 after returning to the island to see how it was almost 20 years after our first visit in the 1980's.
We love the quiet, the privacy, the beautiful views and sunsets with nothing very far away. The island still offers that unique mix of modern, old, secret hideaways, traditional, mystical, historic and peaceful with a fantastically warm welcome across the island, every single time.
Beautiful villa, very well equipped and when we needed help from the manager, it was provided promptly. The pool was a lovely temperature even in early February. The views, from the lounge and patio, looking across the valley were stunning both at dawn, and at sunset.
The only drawback is that you have to drive in the evening if you want to go out to eat, which is a tad unfair on the driver. So we made the most of the very well equipped kitchen (and the BBQ) and ate in most evenings.
From the minute we booked, Robin was very quick at sending our information, in fact any info required was immediately available. Including detailed directions from when we came into the airport until we opened the door of the villa. As we landed just after dark, this was very appreciated.
Everything was very straight forward and we were absolutely delighted with the villa and the pool.
A lovely welcome pack meant that we didn't have to shop until the next day, very thoughtful.
The villa was so clean and well equipped , we settled in right away.
It was lovely to wake up every morning to sunshine and have our breakfast outside. The views were beautiful by day or night.
The pool was a lovely temperature and we used it every day.
Nothing was missing, it was one of our best holidays ever.
Nazaret is a superb location for exploring the rest of the island, In fact it was because of the location that we explored so much.
A truely great spot, couldn't recommend it enough
Thankyou Robin and Debbie for everything. Your villa Shibui is such a beautiful stunner. From the moment we got our car the detailed driving instructions and information was superb. We arrived at the villa and we were both extremely impressed.Extremely grateful for the lovely welcome pack.
Immaculate inside and out. Really nice and relaxing. Fantastic views.
Took advantage of the book collection available.My husband enjoyed Sky Sports, Great location forexploring all the island. Will be definitely returning.
A glass of vino taking in all the stunning views.
Cheers Robin and Debbie.
We have just returned from our 3rd visit to Shibui and have just booked again for next year.
Can not praise it enough it has everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday after the busy lives we lead. We love to sit there in the evening on the patio with a glass of wine and relax, looking out towards the mountains. Its very quiet and not overlooked. Counting the Months till we return.
As soon as we drove from the main road into Nazaret and up to Villa Shibui we knew this was the perfect place for us. The Villa is beautifully furnished, clean, spacious, airy and equipped with everything you could possibly need and we immediately felt at home. The quiet location was relaxing. The outside terrace and heated pool are very private and not overlooked from any side. The garden is kept neatly with strikingly pretty, fascinating plants and looks a picture with the mountain backdrop especially at sunset.
Although we arrived mid-afternoon the welcome pack provided was really welcome and thoughtful, as the last thing you want to do is to go shopping. So to sit on the terrace taking in the scenery and views with a glass of wine in your hand and food on the table was perfect.
We cannot praise Robin and Debbie enough; they have thought of everything you could possibly want or need for a truly tranquil holiday. The information they provided was extremely comprehensive with everything you needed to know to make your stay complete.
We look forward to returning to Shibui - hopefully there will be a couple of weeks available, which, after this review and other excellent online reviews, may be difficult.
This was the most relaxing holiday that we have had to date ,from booking to departure everything was so easy .
The villa was amazing , immaculately presented, spotless, everything was provided and I mean everything, even the dreaded ironing board and iron !!!
A nice welcome pack is provided in the villa and the lovely Kate is on hand for anything needed plus all the phone numbers that might be useful ,everything is well thought out and everything provided for a totally relaxing holiday.
Superb comfy beds with memory mattresses for the best nights sleep ever.
The garden is amazing and well maintained with lots of space and the pool was clean and heated, just fantastic to swim in which we all did everyday.
Robin and Debbie have been a delight to deal with, extremely helpful in regards to any enquiry we had and even booked our car for us. The car hire was superb, from collection to drop off, so easy.
Nazaret is a lovely village very clean and quiet which is what we wanted and all places are within easy reach with a car. It is easy to find your way around the island as the roads are good and well signposted . Teguise just up the road was our favourite place, try and find the San Miguel cafe which is a charming little tapas bar where all the locals go and the food was lovely and reasonably priced and very good if you have kids.....we could of sat there all day it was so relaxing!!
Also, just as you come out from the villa to main road ( LZ10) turn left and after 500 yards on the right is the Centro Socio ( or Sociad ), used by locals, the food is great, very cheap and traditional.
Also the biggest market on the island is in Teguise every sunday so don't miss it!!
The great thing about Lanzarote is free parking, just look for the parking signs.
A trip to Timanfaya national park is a must but get there before 10am as the queue time is about 20 mins, anything after that could be up to 2 or more hours.
Also head to Orzola on the LZ1 road, and just before you get there on the right hand side you will find a little lagoon called Caleton Blanco......it is lovely, it is mainly used by locals and great for kids to explore and it is so chilled there.
Plenty of good restaurants everywhere, only problem is choosing which one to eat at!! All cheaper than rip off britain even the fine dining ones.
All in all a fantastic holiday and many many thanks to Robin and Debbie and Kate for making it so enjoyable, It's a shame we had to come home!!
