Overview

Property

Updated: 09-Dec-2016
Villa in Faro Park, Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Peaceful Location but with bars, shops and restaurants 2 Mins walk away-ideal for a family Holiday

This is a quiet residential area which is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday soaking up the sun! This detached villa is on the Faro Park development and features marble floors throughout. As it was one of the original villas built it has unusually large and secluded garden and terrace areas. The rear terrace looks out over open ground and towards Montana Roca -the red mountain. Although the villa has it's own solar heated pool there is also a communal pool on the complex as well. The gardens and all of the outside area has been totally refurbished to a very high standard. There is free internet access. There is plenty of car parking space outside the villa and more parking on the road if you have guests. The internet package has 92 channels including all BBC + ITV, Sky + BT Sports as well as full SKY film package. There is also a DVD player with DVD's

About the Owner

We have been visiting Lanzarote for some years now and have fallen in love with the island. It's not just the stunning volcanic scenery but also the lifestyle and the people.

Absolutely fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't help but submit a review about our stay at Villa Kathleen it was perfect for what we required. The villa is spacious, clean and very private, all the things that my husband and I required. Also with it's own pool which was wonderful, the surrounding area is very peaceful and quiet. Kath and Brian are very easy to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. We enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks and I cannot wait to book again for next year, if I had my way I would be going back tomorrow but sadly it has already been taken! The villa would comfortably sleeps six but it was pure bliss and an indulgence to have the place for just the two of us. I was very impressed with the privacy and the feel of seclusion yet also the feel of security. There is also a large pool on the complex that you are entitled to use and are given access with a key ensuring that it is only used by the guests on the complex, we went and used it twice and were the only one's using it - result! I cannot recommend this Villa highly enough as it is versatile enough to accommodate a family as well as an indulgent couple such as ourselves who want to get away from it all. The villa also came fully equipped with all of the amenities that you could require - cooker, microwave, dishwasher, and even a washing machine. The kingsize bed was also divine to sleep in! I would highly recommend the villa and quite frankly I am just sulking something rotten that we are not still there!

Perfect villa in the perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! Our stay at this villa couldn't have been more pleasant.

It had everything we could ask for. Including clean, cosy & spacious living, kitchen & bedroom areas, two bathrooms, parking spaces, terrace and our own pool!

Having significantly more Tv channels than I have at home was a nice perk and the all essential WiFi was very handy too.

It's also very easy access to all amenities. There are shops and restaurants a 2 minute walk away as is the rugged coastline which can be very special to sit by and watch, particularly at sunset. Also from here you can actually hug the coast and walk to the centre of Playa Blanca in about 45 mins or so. It's a beautiful walk if walking's your thing.

With the coast on one side of Faro Park, you also have Montana Roja (Red Mountain) on the other side. This is a fascinating extinct volcano and is not too difficult to walk up on its sloped side and was well worth it for the views and to see the huge crater at its peak.

Playa Blanca itself seems to be the perfect resort for whatever your holiday needs are. Dozens of lovely restaurants and bars as well as some great shops. It also has several glorious, crystal clear water, golden sand beaches. I swam in most of them and if you put goggles on you'll see that you're literally swimming with the fishes which was a new & fascinating experience for me.

All this and not to mention of course the beauty that is Lanzarote as a whole with its perfect weather.

All in all, I cannot recommend this place and this villa highly enough.

Brian & Kathy, thank you for being such pleasant and easy people to deal with, we very much hope to come again soon!

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Villa Kathleen in September and had a wonderful stay. The villa was very clean and spacious and even though there were only two of us the two bathrooms were an added bonus. It was just like home from home with washing machine, dishwasher sky TV with sports and free wi-fi. The villa is only a few minutes from local restaurants and bars and small supermarket, and a bus stop for the bus into the main town which is very reliable every half hour. The heated swimming pool was lovely and secluded with comfortable sun loungers and outdoor furniture. We booked very easily with Kathy and Brian.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Villa Kathleen. We were four girls looking for a relaxing stay in the sun and we had a great time. The villa was very spacious for four people- especially having the 2 bathrooms and big bedrooms. There was lots of space outside either on the terrace or by the pool on the sun lounges. Having the BBQ was good fun. The Villa had everything we needed and felt very homely. The local shops and restaurants were 2 minutes away- we had a very nice meal in Flamencos. And the main town was 10 minutes drive away with lots of choice for dinner and drinks. We would all thoroughly recommend staying at the villa!

Villa heaven

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 weeks. Booking was so easy and simple. Kathy and Brian are delightful to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa is beautiful, large, spacious, clean, well equipped, with plenty of outside space and the swimming pool is fantastic, so lovely and warm.

We normally stay in the Faro Park area, so are familiar with the local shops and restaurants. All within a few minutes walk and all excellent value. The internet TV is great as you can keep up to date with all your favourite tv programmes and football (well, for the hubby)!! The free WiFi is a lovely extra.

One thing that I think would benefit other guests is possibly a little more local information. I was taken ill during our holiday which put me in the local hospital for 19 days!!! Fortunately, having use of the free WiFi meant I could research the state medical system which with the European Health card gives you free care, as there are alot of private health facilities. It would be very easy to get confused with where to go which in turn may cause you problems with your travel insurance company.

However, this does not detract from a wonderful holiday villa. We will certainly recommend to our friends and will definitely return. Thanks for all your help Kathy and Brian, your kindness was very much appreciated.

Great value for money

  • 3 of 5

Just returned from a great week staying in Villa Kathleen. Villa was spacious inside and out and in a quiet location, which was perfect for lazy days around the pool. Pool was excellent and was well used!

Easy booking process with Kathy would use again in the future.

Great value for money.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

There is a coastal path about 5 mins walk from the villa which takes you into Playa Blanca. It is well surfaced and mainly flat. The walk takes about 50 minutes and is well worth it for the scenery. There is also a man made sandy beach about 3/4 of the way along which is perfect for young children. There is also a beach in Playa Blanca itself and the famous Papagayo beaches are a short drive away

Travel:

The airport on the Lanzarote is at Arrecife and there are always plenty of taxis on hand. You can prebook a car from the airport but look out for hidden extras! We tend to use Autoreissen. The trip from the airport to the villa takes about 45 minutes. There is plenty to see on the island so we do recommend hiring a car.

Distances:

There is a bus stop at the end of the parade of shops -the bus goes every 30 mins and does a round trip to Playa Blanca and Marina Rubicon and only costs 1.35Euros! It stops at the main bus depot in Playa Blanca where you can change for other destinations such as Puerto Del Carmen and Arrecife.

There are also 2 water parks a few minutes drive away.

Further Details:

A 2minute walk away is a parade of restaurants including a patisserie, an English restaurant which does a great Sunday carvery, the Port Of Call which has a mixed menu, an Italian (La Flamenca). There is also a take away which serves rotisserie chicken and a selection of other items. There are also a few bars and we highly recommend The Lounge bar (open at 5 till late) run by Denis and Michelle. There are also 2 supermarkets.
