About the property

Villa in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Quiet And Private Setting, 5 Minute Drive/ 20 Min Walk To Town And Beaches, 5 min to 2 waterparks

Please note: Our villa has undergone a makeover and as from December 2017 has a fresh, more modern look. We are in the process of changing our photos, descriptions and rates (higher in peak periods, lower at quieter times). Enquiries and bookings will be handled by www.villasplayablanca.co.uk and the villa has a new name: Villa Renaissance. All existing bookings remain in place on the agreed terms. The following description is still unchanged: A stay in this villa is more like booking into a bijou hotel than self-catering accommodation. The large villa, (close to Playa Blanca's shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, banks, post office and all other facilities this attractive resort can offer) in a superb position within a quiet, mature and exclusive development, between town and Montana Roja away from all main roads, enjoys fantastic views over the sea and Fuerteventura. The extra large pool is surrounded by sunbathing areas and overlooked by the covered BBQ and dining terrace. Two of the bedrooms have French windows directly onto the poolside. All accommodation is spacious and offers comfortable seating and areas of interest for the sociable and the introspective alike. Playa Blanca's famous seafront promenade is a 15-minute walk (5-minute drive) away, and a daytime visit will reward you with excellent retail therapy followed by leisurely lunches spent watching yachts, ferries and fishing boats sail by. No need to drive; a taxi will charge 3-4 euros or a little more at night. Playa Blanca at night offers live music to all tastes and dancing for the energetic. A taxi will take you to the ultra-smart Marina Rubicon in 10 minutes and you will find yourself dining or sipping a cocktail to the liquid tunes of a jazz band or a singer with a mellow voice, overlooking a row of million-euro yachts. Playa Blanca and Lanzarote are also especially attractive for outdoor pursuits. The villa is within a 15-minute walk from AguaLava Water Park and 10 minutes from Dino Park Water features. The town itself, unlike most other towns, has three beautiful family beaches, whilst the stunning, many-coved Papagayo Beaches can be reached by car in 20 minutes. Here locals, tourists and camping enthusiasts populate the coves reminiscent of the stone age, with various stages of undress permissible in the glorious Lanzarote sun. Playa Blanca has diving schools and a surf school all of which will transport the interested to the best locations, or you can travel in your hire car in search of the perfect spot (they all are less than an hour's drive away). You can start a fabulous inland, mountain or coastal walk from the front door of the villa. There are cycle hire shops stocking mountain and road bikes, or you can join a 4x4 or quad bike excursion - the list is endless.

Fantastic spacious property, with great facilities and pool on the edge of Playa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the start of October for one week and from the moment we arrived we were given a warm welcome and were hugely impressed by this fantastic property. We were met by Jean, the housekeeper who showed us around and had even picked up some groceries for us as our flight was arriving in late. The place has far more of a homely design and feel to the place than many of the other (more flat pack style) villas on the island. It is only a 20-25 minute walk in to the centre of Playa Blanca which is ideal, or a 3 minute taxi journey which costs 3-4 EUR.

There were only six of us visiting and there was ample room for us all, with the place easily being able to accommodate more without being crowded. Each bedroom is spacious and has their own ensuite facilities. There are plenty of seating areas with the large kitchen, lounge, indoor garden room(!) and out by the pool. The swimming pool was great, certainly the largest I've seen with a villa and the heating meant that it was always a really nice temperature for a plunge.

Any minor issues during the week were speedily dealt with by the housekeeper and they really went above and beyond what is expected to make sure our stay was as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Even recommending a very friendly restaurant in town serving good (and not over priced) food.

Would definitely stay here again if we came back to Playa Blanca. So a massive thanks to Phil, Jean and Kenny for allowing us to use such a fantastic property and making our week thoroughly enjoyable.

What a wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a villa with wonderful owners and housekeepers as well. There is nothing that we could think of that wasn't supplied. It can be a bit of a lottery booking direct as some descriptions are not always100% truthful , but not this villa. There was a group of 10 of us ranging from 75 down to 3 years old and all of us had such an amazing time. The gas bbq is great for evenings when you want to stay in and we found all the restaurants that we tried to be excellent. Right next to the volvano if you want a walk with amazing views .Hope to return as to date it's the best one we've ever had as it felt like a home rather than the normal clinical ones with no character.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your encouraging words Anne; we have just received an enquiry from another friend of yours! Our villa is a home-from-home in the sense that we want to provide everything that a large group of different ages needs. We ourselves have had a fantastic time in this out-of-the-ordinary house, and are so pleased to be able to share the experience, now that it is too big for our needs. We love our super-sized pool! - We are also happy to take on board any suggestions for further improvements; and we'd love to develop the restaurant reviews in our info folder, please supply any comments on food, service, prices and ambience that you have experienced around Playa Blanca or elsewhere on the island. Any posthumous ones after your visit, we can copy into our book. We very much look forward to having your family and friends back another time. With thanks and best wishes Phil and the team.

Fantastic holiday......🍷🍷😂😂🍷🍷👍👍

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa in August , weather was amazing and so was the Villa.It truly is home from home , anything and everything you need is to hand, Phil was there to meet us with a few lovely treats in the fridge to keep you going until you can get to the nearby supermarkets.

Pool area was great, plenty of beds and cushions, bit of a problem with Sand settling in bottom of pool but Jean and Keith were there to hoover the pool and fantastic to chat to..., loads of great restaurants, we had an Indian delivered one night which was great although not cheap!!!, we will definitely love to return, lovely home which we all felt very comfortable in, when you have a group of teenagers you don't want to be constantly watching what there doing or feel under each other's feet and Casa Caos is the place to go, well done Phil, not forgetting the amazing Jean ...👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted that you all found Casa Caos just what you needed for a base to unwind and enjoy your stay in Lanzarote. We are very proud of the way the house lends itself for the enjoyment of any size and type of party, as you say. The pool will be re-lined this autumn to put in a super cleanable surface, to Jean and Ken's delight! We're also proud of the generous eating and entertainment areas - plenty of room to spread out a take-away or home-cooked dinner for 12! The Indian restaurants are facing more and more excellent competition and we believe the prices will come down a bit - ten years ago there were hardly any curry restaurants in Lanzarote but the locals and other visitors are catching on to the British taste for spices. - We'll be delighted to receive more bookings from you, your family and friends. Best wishes Phil

fantastic huge villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely fantastic. It is even bigger than what the pictures tell you - perfect for a large family or a couple of families holidaying together. The 5 en suite rooms are ideal - no queuing for a shower! Nice quiet location with lovely views. There are many little added extras that just make this place so comfortable. Will definately be rebooking!

Owner's Response: Dear guest, Thank you for your review - it is great to hear that you all enjoyed your holiday in our villa. Your comments regarding the size and facilities of the property are very welcome and satisfying. We like to think that we offer the best of both worlds: privacy and separate areas for individuals, couples or groups who want it, and the full equipment of a home with its comforts for meals, barbeques and parties together. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. With thanks Phil

Ideal villa for a relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

9 of us stayed at Casa Caos over the Easter holidays and had a lovely time. We were made so welcome by Phil and Shirpa, arriving to find a great welcome pack of food and drink to see us through the first evening and morning, and they gave us a personal tour and explained everything we might need to know. The villa is so spacious and well equipped with all home comforts. The bedrooms are large, comfortable and quiet and there is plenty of living space for a large group / 2 separate families to spread out. The pool is large and heated (unlike many others in Lanzarote!) and both the sea and mountain views from the outdoor area are idyllic. The centre of Playa Blanca is a good 25-30 minute walk but we enjoyed the exercise, and for the Marina Rubicon with all its gorgeous bars and restaurants there is a taxi rank a 2 minute walk from the villa and these are readily available for around 4-5 Euros if you don't have a car. We can highly recommend this accommodation and will certainly return in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for such encouraging words, Kathryn. We were so pleased to hear that everything worked out really well for you and your family - it is very satisfying.

Having said that, we are always open to hear our guests' suggestions for making their experience even more perfect, and we look forward to another opportunity to host your holiday. With best wishes to you all Phil and Sirpa
