Lovely compact villa but a good mile to walk into playa Blanca . Owners photos were great but some pictures were taken further away from villa than thought. Playa Blanca lovely part of lanzarote!!!! Will be back but will treat ourselves to stay at Princess Yaiza fabulous hotel ! Used local taxis to travel to and fro- pretty reasonable. Will be back!
The villa was clean and the pool was warm. Having our own pool was a bonus and there were bats and balls in the utility room for pool games.The washing machine and drying room were a bonus since we were travelling with hand luggage only to keep the flight costs down. The area is quiet but it is only 2 minutes walk to a good supermarket and a nice snack bar/ice cream parlour and sports bar.In 5 minutes you can walk to the prom and stroll beside the sea to the Marina (20 mins) which is very nice for wandering or eating out). A further 20 minutes brings you to the main resort and the port and it is possible to continue beyond to the light house if you have the energy and the inclination. The utensils in the kitchen are not posh (some plates are plastic) but they are functional and there are plenty of them if you plan to run the dish washer every few days. From the villa it is possible to walk over the headland to the Papagayo Beaches. The route is dusty and there is no shade if its hot but there is often a nice breeze blowing to make the trek easier. Although the villa does not have a sea view the mountains look pretty, especially in the evenings. If you are an independent sort of traveller looking for a place away from the maddening crowd but close enough to get to busier places when you want to this villa would be a good choice. The local English couple who look after the maintenance seem to do a good job and were there to advise on the washing machine when we had user difficulties (our fault not the machine). For those with children there is a playground 2 minutes away.
