About Angela Leith
Hello, and welcome! We are a couple in our sixties, Paul and Angela, and having travelled extensively over the years we are now looking forward to retirement and sharing our villa with you.
Angela Leith purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Angela Leith chose Playa Blanca
Previously rented out, but now under new ownership, we purchased Casa Belle for the picturesque views, and close amenities. Just a 5 min walk to the coast-walk road. The fabulous Rubicon Marina is only a 10 min walk away, and a further 10 min walk will lead you to the centre of Playa Blanca. The views on the leisurely coast-walk road are exquisite, and you can stop for an ice cream, coffee, or a cheeky beer along the way and watch the happy holidaymakers stroll along. The centre of Play Blanca is only 2-3 mins by car from our villa.
What makes this Villa unique
We are close to everything, supermarkets, walkways, restaurants, taxis, buses (right outside villa at a cost of approx. €2.80 per couple to the centre of town). Only a bus ride of 40mins and a cost of €10 pp to visit other resorts, Peuro Del Carmen, Playa Honda, and the Beautiful Arrecife. Villa is detached in a residential area with nice privacy, but access to the mainstream within 5 or 10 minutes. Ideal !

Lovely villa close to all amenities
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Belle. The villa was 10 minutes walk away from Marina Rubicon and its vast selection of bars and restaurants. The villa was just as described and we loved the outside space around the pool. Wifi was good and the TV had a vast selection of English-speaking channels including both Sky Sports and BT Sport. Angela left us a lovely welcome pack of food & drinks. We met Joan the housekeeper who changed bed linen half way through the week ( and also offered us a late checkout as they had nobody coming in on our departure day - thanks Joan).
All in all, we had a fantastic family holiday!
We are indebted to you for writing such a positive review, thank you so much.
We are so glad you had a lovely time.

Excellent Villa - clean and tidy and brilliant position.
Great Villa and Location
Villa was great inside with plenty of room and lovely condition and outside area great to relax with sun all day and pool warm and big enough for a swim and safe and clean
Needs a good clean
Run down property, quite dirty with corroded bathroom fittings, peeling paint, not what we expected for the price. My husband has asthma and is allergic to dust, we could not understand why his chest was so bad until we saw the dust and dirt lodged in the track for the bedroom patio door, which was quite disgusting. We had read that it would be cleaned once a week, we were there 8 days and it was never cleaned. The sheets on the bed were poor quality and there were no clean ones for us to change the bed. The pool was black around the inside edge and had a tide mark even after it had been cleaned. The pool ladders were loose and unsafe.
It was unseasonably cold when we were there and we asked for a heater, which we got, but it was totally useless for the size of the room. Joan tried to say heaters were not needed in Lanzarote but minutes later said she had recently bought one for her own use as it was so cold, yet there was none for us until we asked. I have photos if required.
For what we paid we expected much better than this.
It is most unfortunately that your week of winds, rain, storms and cold have resulted in you levelling extreme criticism at our villa.
Our track record after 3.5 years is evident by the 27 excellent reviews, which contradict your findings totally.
We advised you in advance of strong winds on occasion which can cause sand and volcanic dust to land everywhere. This should have been a consideration for you with Graham's asthma.
The villa was prepared to perfection before your arrival, with special goodies provided as a treat for your birthday.
We did our best to accommodate your complaint of feeling cold. Two different types of heater were supplied, but not the central heating you wanted!
our caretaker, Joan, who has been praised in other reviews for her assistance and friendliness, could not take any more of Graham's aggression after numerous phone calls at night time, when any complaint could have been sorted rationally during day time hours. She eventually had to refuse his calls. Our TV network provider had the same issue also after phone calls from Graham. During all these calls the only complaint mentioned was no central heating, and not being able to work the TV, not a mention of disgusting dirt.
You were advised of winds and dust, and unfortunately you had it in spades with rains as well,
but "self catering" means exactly that, and all it entails, all cleaning equipment is supplied at villa.
Finally, there is no issue with pool ladder. it is not a fixed unit, otherwise it would penetrate the pool lining, but completely safe.
All marks in pool are also from volcanic dust which is eventually filtered away. All Ph levels are correct and meet with health and safety standards.
Angela, Paul and Darren
Thanks for making this a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Joan was very helpful for check in.
Villa was very well equipped for every need and English TV and books were a plus. Nice and close to great iceland/waitrose supermarket and for walking along promenade to Marina Rubicon or Los Colorados. Thanks for a great stay, would definitely recommend!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your lovely review.
Great villa lots of things to do nearby beds ok perhaps need to be looked at a bit squashy for me but did not detract from a super holiday
Thanks for the nice review, and pleased you had a lovely holiday. I Will address the beds situation when doing yearly maintenance next week. Thanks for bringing it to our notice.
