Villa near Playa Blanca, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Private Pool, Solar Heated All Year
About Lesley Dickson
My wife and I bought in Playa Blanca after visiting the area for many years. We enjoy the lovely restaurants that are at The Marina and on the seafront in the town centre. I also enjoy mountain biking locally and running along the coastal path that goes from 300m from our front door to the other end of playa Blanca at the lighthouse. Our children enjoyed many holidays there when they were young and still enjoying coming out to their "2nd home" now they are grown up. Playa Blanca is a family orientated resort and is now described as the "jewel in the crown" of the Canary Islands. We continually maintain the villa to a standard that we can enjoy and allows our guests to feel they have all the home comforts to ensure an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. We have recently purchased the villa next door to Villa Elise, which is also available for rental at https://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/accommodation/p6835311 by searching property ID 6835311.

We felt at home immediately. The house is fully stocked with everything you would need. With staying for a month it is well looked after: linen changes, pool cleaning, gardener etc each have access so you don’t need to stay in. Pool was an obvious bonus especially with the hot weather we had. On a personal note I would have preferred the double bed to have been on the other room with the en suite as this is the only bathroom with windows too. I appreciate the other has the terrace and a bathroom close and certainly did not stop us enjoying our stay. Loved the local commercial centre (10 mins. Walk) Paulos Bar - hugely entertaining and Alfie’s Bar and restaurants. Rubicon was a 20 min walk (top road ) loved Flagship Bar and Cafe del Puerto. A further walk to Playa Blanca and an amazing range of bars and restaurants too many to mention. Highly recommend this Villa.
Shona, thank you for taking the time to submit your review. Sounds like you enjoyed our villa as much as we do and frequented the same places. Hope to welcome you back in the future.

Lovely Villa, well equipped with everything needed. Great communication with the owner throughout the booking, and the local agent popped in to make sure we had settled in ok. The location was perfect for us, because we didn't hire a car. Supermarket really close, easy walk to the Marina for dinner. We had a lovely relaxing family holiday.

Special interest holidays:
Cycling for enthusiasts is a must, as Lanzarote hosts fantastic roads for cyclists to enjoy, whether you are a keen cyclist or would rather enjoy a peaceful cycle along the coastal path, the choice is yours. Bikes can be rented from Playa Blanca at reasonable rates, which are discounted the longer the rental. Marina Rubicon is ideal for people who like to scuba, sail and enjoy life on the water. There are kayaks for the kids. Marina Rubicon hosts the most magnificent yachts, bars and restaurants overlooking the marina, which entertains the children watching and feeding the fish swim below you whilst you dine. There is also a bowling alley in the shopping centre at the marina.
The villa is a short walk to the world famous Papagayo beaches. Dorada Beach is a 20 min walk towards Playa Blanca and has lots of bars, restaurants and fun activities for all the family. There is also a small rocky beach just a few minutes from the villa.
Arrecife airport is an easy 20 min drive away. Car hire is recommended but is definitely not essential. If you do not want to hire a car, a taxi will take you to Playa Blanca for approx 40/50 euros. Local taxi service to centre of Playa Blanca approx 4.00 euros. If you wish to visit places of interest on the island we would recommend car hire.
Playa Blanca town is a 2km/25 minute walk or a 5 minute drive from Villa Elise. Timanfaya Nature Reserve (volcano trip) is a 20-minute drive. The famous caves of Lanzarote are a 45 minute drive up the coast.
Marina Rubicon offers a wide range of water-based sports activities, including glass-bottomed boat trips around the coastline, yacht hire, scuba-diving and snorkeling. The marina holds a market every Wednesday and Saturday. Many art galleries are based within the Marina. Restaurants offer Spanish, Italian, Tapas, Tex-Mex and other cuisine. There is an on-site supermarket, bank and cash points.
