About Christine

We live in Scotland with our 4 children and grandchildren.

We have enjoyed holidaying in different countries but decided to make Playa Blanca the place for our "Place in the Sun".

Christine purchased this villa in 2014

Why Christine chose Playa Blanca

We have always found Playa Blanca to be suitable as a holiday destination with fantastic facilities in the area for families and couples alike. It is a comfortable resort with a friendly atmosphere where you can either chill out or be a bit more adventurous.

There are some beautiful beaches and in addition to the town centre the marina boasts a great range of shops and restaurants. There really is something to suit everyone here. Activities to choose from include the beaches, Timanfaya, day trip to Fuerteventura, waterparks, camel rides, water sports, cycling and many more.

Away from the hustle and bustle but near enough if you want it, this is an ideal location to enjoy and explore from.

The area is easily accessible with Arreciffe airport less than an hours drive away.

What makes this villa unique

The property is an easy 20 minutes walk from the town centre with its shops, bars and wide variety restaurants which suit all tastes and budgets.

Casa Carra - lovely villa in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Carra for two weeks in early July. We were a party of 5 adults and found the villa well kept and the accommodation spacious. The facilities were exactly as described.

Christine kept us informed every step of the way and Mandy, who looks after the villa, was really helpful.

There is a small shop within 5 mins walk which stocked everything you needed and not overpriced. There is another larger supermarket in the harbour which gives a better selection of goods.

It is about 20 minute walk into the harbour where there is a decent selection of restaurants serving everything from paellas to curries. Have a meal in Pedro's and look at the old pictures of Playa Blanca on the wall and a young Pedro. The harbour is not loud and garish but a lovely place to while away a few hours over good food and wine. The harbour front is car free and nice to stroll up and down with a few shops to pop in. There are more restaurants behind on the road which would probably offer better value for money but we didn't try them so cannot comment.

We got a taxi back to the villa in the evening which costs about 4.5 Euros (5 Euros for a people carrier) They are in plentiful supply. You could walk if you wanted.

Another 20mins along the front and you come to the Rubicon Marina which has a market on Wednesday and Saturdays. There are more restaurants here and well worth a visit although we felt the quality and price of food was better in the Harbour area. Keep an eye out for the fish and crabs!

A must to see is the Volcano (and the visitor's centre) , the Caves, Jameos del Agua and the Cactus Gardens.

Casa Carra is the quietest place I have stayed ; no dogs barking, no scooters and no people shouting! It is a great villa to stay in and would certainly recommend it to my friends and family.

Owner's Response: We love hearing that our guests have had a great holiday in Casa Carra and Playa Blanca. It is also very helpful to find out the different ways that guests use the villa and appreciate peoples recommendations for restaurants as there are so many to chose from. It is obvious that you have made the most of your holiday and took time to explore some of the experiences of both Playa Blanca and the island. I hope you found time in your busy schedule to relax too.

Great location & all facilities

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at Cassa Carra for a week in February 2018. Location is ideal as it's not too near front which makes it quiet but within easy walking distance (we hired a car as it was cheap and I have some mobility problems). Pool area is to the south so gets sun all day from 1st light to dusk and is also well sheltered from famous Lanzarote breeze. Pool was ideal temperature at 28 degrees. Wifi was very handy as was access to movies and all TV channels. Rooms were clean with good layout which would be ideal for 2 couples (1 with children). Kitchen had all utilities and plenty of dishes, cutlery and glasses including plastic items for around pool. Would love to go back later this year but fully booked in October. Maybe next year?

Perfect Stay (despite the weather)

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week at Casa Carra (27 Jan to 3 Feb), family of 4 with 3 year old and 1 year old. Couldn’t have asked for more from our accommodation. Villa was a lot larger than we expected. We ended up staying in the master bedroom and twin room on one side of house and using 3rd double bedroom on other side for our bags. We found the garden area larger than expected also. Weather was patchy but we still managed a few afternoons in the pool. The small patio area outside the master bedroom we found to be a real sun trap with very little wind. The film selection was a god send for keeping our 3 year old occupied. Christine was very attentive and easy to deal with before during and after. Villa was well equipped. Large selection of towels which made us question we had brought so many things like towels with us. Villa was outside of main town centre so while walkable some of the area is undeveloped so not most picturesque of walks but it’s easily do-able. We had hired a car so usually drove and after beach and early meal in one of the restaurants on the promenade, drove home early, bathed and bedded kids then shipped them off to bed before relaxing with a drink. It’s why we found space of villa so handy. When arrived home found cheap flights and booked up again for Casa Carra at end of year :-)

wonderful and splendid villa !

  • 5 of 5

As shown on the internet, Casa Carra is indeed splendid and well equipped.

As on the other Canarian Islands, a lot of nice restaurants ans shops.

Pool water temperature was nice ( but it has not been cleaned during our stay !)

Small recommendation: coffeemaker (for non-English tourists who love also coffee)

Contatc with owner, Christine, was perfect (and we dit not have to make use of assistance of Mandy, luckily :-) )

We'll spread the word in Belgium !

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We are delighted that you had a good holiday at Casa Carra and can only apologise that the pool was not cleaned during your stay as it is meant to be cleaned twice per week for guests arriving and also once during a 1 week stay. Thank you for your useful suggestion of a coffee maker which I will buy one when we are over in March. Many thanks again Christine

Lovely villa on quiet development.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our second stay at Casa Carra. The villa is located in a quiet development, which suits us, and is a 20 minute stroll to the seafront. It offers home from home accommodation; is very well presented, clean and incredibly well equipped.

Christine and Mandy, who manages the villa, are extremely helpful and do all they can to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend Casa Carra to family and friends who were looking to holiday in Playa Blanca.

Villa with a homely feel, very well maintained, good location and highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Christine is particularly engaging and dealt with all our enquiries with prompt efficiency. The villa is in a delightful spot close to all amenities and was very clean. All facilities were well maintained and there was a very good selection of utensils and good quality furnishings. We enjoyed time at the beach and pool and it was a quiet location at night so sleep was not a problem. I can highly recommend this property.
