Why HELEN DAVIES chose Yaiza
We are pleased that so many of our guests decide to return to our villa for their holiday and as you can see from checking guest comments on 'TripAdvisor' you can understand why the continue to return to our villa. We as a family have owned this villa since 2002 and substantially increased its size, bringing the furnishes finishes up to modern day standards, whilst retaining a place where our guests feel at home.
What makes this Villa unique
We make sure with our team that our guests are very important and go out of our way to try provide any special needs the may require, be it to celebrate a special birthday; anniversary, or just a surprise for a family member our guest. We have a chef service we can offer to cook your meal; BBQ on our fabulous patio area and include if required, providing the food and specialities of varied cuisines and including clearing away after wards. For us, we just want our guests to relax immediately they arrive in our villa and have a memorable holiday with friends and family.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Its not easy to find accommodation for a family spanning 3 generations and with some children with specific needs, but Villa Coco managed to tick all the boxes. The villa was well laid out, spacious and had all the basics that today's holidaymakers (in our experience) require, specifically: plenty of space, a great pool, a good selection of satellite TV channels and broadband (you might be surprised to discover how many places say they have broadband but, in fact, have next to none which can ruin a holiday when some members of the group absolutely have to have it)
The property was checked up on regularly to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction - garden, pool, cleaning - and to see if there was anything we needed.
We would like to highly recommend the villa except we can't - we want to keep it a secret so that we can book it again next year.

Playa Blanca, once a small fishing village, has in recent years been sensitively developed into a small town whilst retaining a lot of its old charm including a couple of the old restaurants. It is a place that benefits from the all year round warm Canarian climate. Many of it's shops and restaurants are open 52 weeks a year with many staying open until late in the evening. The relaxed atmosphere of Playa Blanca sets it apart from many holiday resorts and offers so much for those families who enjoy a warm climate, in that the local people are very friendly with most speaking more than one language which makes ordering a meal or shopping so much easier.
For those who like shopping, there is plenty of variety from designer labels to tourist shops. There is a variety of restaurants to suit all tastes, many of them located on the shore line so you can both enjoy the views over the sea or just people watch. It is truely a family location; not load; not brash, with people from around the world, just calm where you feel safe.
The new marina in Playa Blanca is stunning and boasts many good restaurants, classy shops, with markets held weekly on Wednesday and Saturdays. The hotels Princess Yiaza and Volcan near this area are five star and provided places to go for that special evening for a drink or to dine. There are also a number of restaurants that offer that bit extra when it comes to dining all are located within a relatively short distance from the centre of the village.
There are four large supermarkets, two selling fresh meat; one selling fresh fish. There is also fish market near the harbour which sells fish that is brought in that day by the local fishermen; if you like fresh fish this is the place to go.
