About Camilla

I am Camilla, the daughter of the owners of this beautiful bungalow. I help my parents with the administration of their property. I live on Lanzarote since 19 years. So if anything should happen while you stay in the bungalow, I´m here for any advice. We have a contract with a local property management company for cleaning and maintenance.

Camilla purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Camilla chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

My parents had a dream about having their own place in the sun. Near their daughter and grandchildren. Away from the cold and dark winter of Norway. They used to come every year for a week, but when they got the chance to buy their own bungalow, the perfect one, they only needed to think once. Now they come for a stay 2 or 3 months every year. And they enjoy every moment here. The nice weather, the walks on the beautiful promenade, having breakfast on their terrace, the friendly people and the chilled out atmosphere. When they bought it they refurbished it completely, and when they are not here, they have decided to let other people rent it. So please help us to keep is nice, enjoy and feel like home.

What makes this bungalow unique

The bungalow is perfect located on the second line in front of flamingo beach. It is tastefully furnished, well equipped, well maintained, light and clean. The terrace is facing south so there are great chances to enjoy the sun all day, and the location of this bungalow is perfect, everything within walking distance.

A lovely bungalow in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

First time in Lanzarote for me and my Partner, it won’t be the last! We loved the Island and bungalow. The bungalow is spacious, in a great location and close to everything you will need. Views from the terrace of the sea and Fuerteventura are wonderful.

The Flamingo complex is family orientated with daily pool activities. We preferred to use the sun terraces located behind the bungalow, designated ‘quiet solarium’.

There are a few restaurants on the promenade between the bungalow and beach. Casa Joaquin is very good.

Playa Blanco town centre, a short walk along the promenade, has a vast choice of Restaurants, Bars and Shops. We enjoyed proper hand-made Pizzas at La Rustica, Tapas at El Katedral, plus many other bars/restaurants. Lots of great fish!

The bungalow is well equipped for self-catering so we spent a few nights in enjoying local produce, beer and wine. We also used our laptop to watch films etc. on the large flat-screen TV.

Having a car was great for exploring all parts of the diverse, picturesque island. Our favourites were:-

• Timanfaya National Park (Mountains of Fire) and the Visitor Centre at Montana Blanca.

• Cueva de los Verdes – miles of underground tunnels / caves. Wear sensible shoes!

• The Green Lagoon at El Golfo.

• The surfing town Playa Famara.

• Playa del Jabillo beach at Costa Teguise.

Must not forget Camilla, a great host. She provided lots of useful information about the Island and was very accommodating with our arrival/departure times.

We highly recommend the bungalow!

Perfect position and a lovely bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described and clean. Camilla came to welcome us on our arrival day and was very helpful. The bungalow was perfect for my wife and I, with ample space and all the equipment you need. Lovely patio area (with sea view) with seating and sunbeds. It was just a 50 yard walk to the sandy Flamingo Beach. The enclosed and protected sea that fronted the beach was perfect for swimming. A very pleasant 20 minute walk to Playa Blanca centre, along the promenade was fantastic for us as we really like walking to the restaurants in the evening. We stayed for 11 nights and had a fabulous holiday. Taking everything into consideration, I have given this property a 5 star rating but I would still like to suggest that the installation of Air Conditioning would enhance the experience. Of course, this is not to everyone's liking but would be my preference. Many thanks Camilla!

Owner's Response: Thak you very much for your review, and for being honest. Any suggestions to improve the bungalow is greatfully received. I do agree, for someone an A/C could enhance a stay here, specially during the warmest weeks of the year. I will consider installing one. Glad you enjoyed the stay, and hope to see you here again.
