Bungalow in Playa Flamingo, Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Quiet Position Ideally Situated Next To Beach And Pool
Our clean, comfortable air-conditioned bungalow overlooking the beach, features 3 outdoor heated pools, three children’s pools, play areas, an indoor pool and entertainment in the evenings. The complex is gated and safe and the beach a minute away, is also family friendly with a gentle sloping white sand incline into the sea. Internet access is available on the complex or local bars and there are supermarkets, shops and restaurants within 3 minutes walk, so hiring a car is not a necessity. The centre of Playa Blanca with shops, several Internet cafes, restaurants, bars and further beaches is a gentle 10 minute walk along the wide, quiet promenade.

Carol & Terry as welcoming as ever it’s like home from home. You could not wish for a more clean, comfortable & well equipped place. We lack for nothing. Still deserving a plus 5 star rating. Even after a month we are not ready to go home.

We have had a perfect week, thank you Carol & Terry for the fantastic apartment. Casa Nostra is by far the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in & we will definitely be back. All the little personal touches are much appreciated & show a level of care not usually seen in holiday apartments, Thank you.
"Sam & Timm" 2014
Our 5th visit to Casa Nostra yet again we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
(As we have said before, it is like “Home from Home”. Thanks for providing us with such a warm, comfortable & above all spotlessly clean base.) To keep Casa Nostra to the high impeccable standard is I am sure not an easy job, but Carol and Terry do it year in year out. Well done to you both.
"Roger & Gwenda" 2014
We stayed here in Oct 2014 and can highly recommend this bungalow, as we found it to be the perfect location & the most comfortable, cleanest & best equipped self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. We enjoyed the peaceful rest & appreciated the close proximity to beach, shops and all amenities. We’ve booked again for February & October.
" Sheila and Peter " Oct. 2014
We enjoyed a peaceful rest and loved the privacy of the patio and the bungalow. We just "crashed out" and walked along the prom to eat out most evenings, finding many excellent inexpensive restaurants and pubs within a short walk away." Nancy and Steve" 2013
Carol and Terry are the nicest people you will meet in Lanzarote. They are totally sincere and fully committed to keeping the villa in it's excellent condition. The accommodation is very comfortable, spotlessly clean and they provide everything you will need at this ideal holiday location. We've already booked for next year, which says it all. "Sandra & Dave" ( Eastbourne) 2012
Had a wonderful 3 weeks in the villa! I've used self-catering places for many years - this has been the best equipped one ever! This is the first place I felt I did not need to wash everything before I used it - everything was sparkling clean - and having so many extras provided as well just made the holiday! Thanks for the welcome package and all the information.Will definitely be back again.

A fantastic holiday home in a great location
A lovely bungalow in a quiet location, next to the quieter pool and only 1 minute walk from the beach. Terry communicates everything you need to know in a series of emails and is always on hand to answer any queries. The bungalow is very homely with some personal touches which make you feel very welcome. A much appreciated welcome pack is available at no extra cost - things like wine, water, tea, coffee, toilet rolls and biscuits included.
Superb Casa Nostra
I would recommend this property to anyone. From the first contact with the owners to arriving home everything was of the highest standard.
The bungalow is extremely clean and has all the facilities necessary to lead to an excellent holiday. From the patio there are fantastic views of the sea, the lounge area is very comfortable, the kitchen extremely well stocked and other rooms of the highest quality.
The instructions and information from the owners is extremely useful. The local facilities are close at hand with many excellent restaurants.
We cannot recommend "Casa Nostra" highly enough.
Terry and Kendra
A lovely property with everything that you could ask for in a wonderful location. This was ideal for our family, very well equipped and the air condition was very welcome. Cherrill says this sets the bar for our future stays in self catering accommodation with hob being better than ours! The apartment was very close to the quieter pool which was ideal for us and close to the sea. Although we didn't use the sunbeds too much they provided a helpful fallback from having to put a towel down and the table and chairs were great to sit and have an evening snack in the sun. The shower was excellent and the beds were great and Cherrill and Charlotte slept much better than at home, with blackout curtains keeping sun out. All in all a wonderful stay and an excellent apartment. Many thanks to Carol and Terry. Regards Joe, Cherrill and Charlotte McGuigan
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Nostra. The bungalow is a real 'Home from Home' in a great location.
Carol and Terry have put a lot of thought into furnishings, with three comfortable sofas, good quality towels and bedding, comfortable bed, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space in the bedroom, well-equipped kitchen/dining area, lovely bathroom with walk-in shower and plenty of storage space and washing machine.
There are also hair dryers, iron, ironing board, beach towels, beach mats, beach umbrellas, books, tourist guides, games, DVDs, television, plus many more items to make sure you have a pleasant stay.
The patio area has a table with umbrella and four reclining chairs, plus two sun-loungers with comfortable mattresses with removable towelling coverings. It is so relaxing sitting outside surrounded by the lovely bougainvillea, with a view of the sea, and then strolling approximately 50m to the beach for a swim or, if you prefer, the heated quiet pool is a few steps from the bungalow.
The surrounding area is lovely, with restaurants on your doorstep at Playa Flamingo beach, with the restaurants of Playa Blanca approximately 10 minutes walk away, or the Marina Rubicon, which is a further walk along the promenade. There are also restaurants as you walk along the promenade in the opposite direction towards the lighthouse.
Carol and Terry were very informative through their e-mails and literature within the bungalow. The bungalow was very clean and well-presented, with a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us, along with some water, milk, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits.
We had such a relaxing holiday and would thoroughly recommend Casa Nostra.
We will definitely return.
From the moment we first made contact with the owners we were impressed with the prompt and comprehensive replies. The location of the bungalow was excellent. Only a few paces from the quiet pool and 50 paces to the sea-front walk which accesses Flamingo Beach and some supermarkets and restaurants. A 10 minute stroll and you are at the Ferry Port. A little further and you are at the main sea front and main street. What really sets this apart from many other villas is the way it is equipped and stocked. You will want for nothing. It is spotlessly clean, all towels and bedding are top quality and the beds are comfortable. Being on a complex means that the surrounding paths and pools are well maintained. The photos are an accurate representation of the bungalow, but what you don't see are the collections of books, DVDs, tourist guides and games which are made available. Casa Nostra is the pride and joy of the owners and we felt privileged to have been able to stay there. Would we return? Definitely and as soon as possible!
