About hilary and max
We have spent a few years coming to Lanzarote on holidays and we loved it from the very first time. This island can offer not only amazing landscapes but also all sort of activities for all kind of holidaymakers from kids, young families, over 60s and whoever is looking for a relaxing time under a wonderful sun all year long. Never too hot, no mosquitos or humidity, great food and local wine, Lanzarote is a good option for a short holiday or a longer stay during the winter to avoid the British cold. Our family enjoys our villa regularly and Faro park is one of the best resort on the island for peace and a nice view but just a few minutes away from the spanish movida.
hilary and max purchased this Villa in 2013
Why hilary and max chose Yaiza
Playa Blanca is a lovely village in the south of Lanzarote, with easy access to Fuerteventura (25 mins boat). Here you can enjoy all types of sports, good shopping, all kind of restaurants, you can spend time in crowded places or you can isolate yourself if required. From here you can easily reach different beaches, one of them the sandy beach Papagayo Beach, famous for its landscape and amazing views. Within short driving distance you can also reach lovely villages where to enjoy a nice lunch, or visiting famous sites or climb mountains. And let's not forget the amazing number of restaurants around Playa Blanca and the whole island. For families, Playa Blanca and Lanzarote offer lots of water parks, wildlife parks, etc. Never boring!
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa was prepared thinking of all kind of guests, including families with children but also people coming to lanzarote but requiring to be online 24/7 (like us!). That's why we offer free wifi (Fiber), Cable and Satellite TV with hundres of channels from around the world (UK, USA, Germany, France, Italy etc....) & Blue ray with internet access such as YouTube, all sort of DVDs collection. For children we have all facilities available, toys (bricks, cars, board games, books for different ages), pool toys, etc. If you enjoy cooking you will find everything you need in the kitchen including kettle, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, oven, everything brand new from 2013. We like keeping our villa in excellent order and care as we also spend some time here during the year.

This property was everything it said it was. Clean, spacious, comfortable and well maintained. It is a lovely peaceful area and not too far from bars and restaurants. The welcome pack was very much appreciated as our flight was delayed and we were late getting there. The garden and pool were lovely, the pool especially welcome on hot days. We are looking forward to returning in the near future.
Can’t recommend this enough. Spotless Villa with everything you need. Kids (and us) loved the heated pool too. Hilary was a great, very responsive and always happy to help with anything we asked. Great location with plenty of beaches and restaurants etc close by. Recommend getting a car though (although taxis were really good) and a visit to papyago beach is a must.
We will definitely return.
The villa is very spacious and has everything you could wish for. Quiet location
We have stayed in a similar property just around the corner, so we knew what to expect!
The villa is spacious, nicely decorated and furnished, with all the equipment you could wish for. Good sized pool & garden, with a good area for al-fresco breakfasts/dining. A few essential were left for us on arrival, which also helps after a long journey (beer & wine!).
The location: it is very quiet and peaceful, with great walks along the rocky coast. Yes, it is a long walk to Playa Blanca, however there are numerous stopping points along the way to get refueled, from snack bars to restaurants. And of course you can just either turn around and walk back before Playa Blanca, or get a taxi back (5.5€ from central Playa Blanca). We love the walk - although not all the paths are finished, it's fine/easy and flat walking. Note however that whilst the path from the lighthouse to Villa Kamezi and on to Playa Blanca has been completed, there are a few off road sections between the villa and the lighthouse, which would be difficult in a wheelchair.
There is also a reasonably well-stocked (if expensive) supermarket 2 minutes drive away, plus a few restaurants - we used the supermarket but not the restaurants.
A great holiday! We would visit this villa again.
Hilary/Ilaria very responsive by email and phone, which really builds confidence.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Niki. The booking process was very efficient. Everything was as described. The villa was spotless and had everything we required. As we arrived very late in the night we appreciated the welcome pack.
The restaurant shops were a little walk away but that was good too. I would highly recommend this property.
It was our pleasure having you as our guests. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
We have stayed in this same architect designed villa previously,it is very good.L
lovely villa and extremely good weather,we had to enjoy our stay!!!!
Large, clean and bright two bedroom villa
I stayed at the villa for 5 nights with my wife and 2 year old daughter. The villa was lovely and clean and a welcome package of bread, water, wine and beer had been left for us which was greatly appreciated! We loved swimming in the large pool which is a great temperature and sat out on the big table in the evenings which is sheltered really well from the Lanzarote wind. There are shops and restaurants in walking distance (the walk is across an area with no path so was a bit bumpy with a buggy but no real issue). I would definitely recommend hiring a car if you are staying here as it would be a long walk to any of the beaches if you didn’t. However with a car it was a 10 minute drive to Playa Flamingo which is a brilliant family beach. Overall we had an amazing time and would definitely recommend the villa to others.
