About Glyn Emmett
My wife and I have been regular visitors to Playa Blanca for many years. We love the all-year-round climate and the relaxed atmosphere of both Playa Blanca and Faro Park. We purchased our holiday-home to provide a comfortable base for our holidays on the island. We hope you enjoy the villa as much as we do!
What makes this Villa unique

100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
This villa is absolutely perfect, I don’t think the pictures do it justice! The actual area feels incredibly safe, the property is spacious and clean and has absolutely everything you could need! The pool area is huge and private and also sunny all day. There was plenty of plates and cutlery etc for a whole family! Beds were very comfortable, lounge area and tv great, not too far from Playa Blanca! We had a car which was handy but the buses seem to run regularly too!
We will 100% be booking again!
Many thanks for leaving a superb review.
It's fantastic to hear that you enjoyed all the great features the villa offers and that you had a great holiday.
We'd love to have you back anytime in the future.
Great villa for a perfect holiday in Lanzerote
I had a great stay at the villa. Everything I needed to make my stay comfortable was provided. I particularly enjoyed the good sized pool and outside sitting area. The villa was ideal due to its private setting ensuring peace and quiet. I would stay again for sure.
Many thanks for taking the time to provide a review. We appreciate the feedback. It's pleasing to hear you had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the villa, pool and privacy it provides. Hope to see you again in the future.
Lovely villa in superb location
I was very impressed with this very well equipped and well maintained villa. It is in an excellent location near shops and buses. The heated pool is a delight.
I very much enjoyed my stay and will be returning very soon.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review - it's very much appreciated. We are glad you found the location and standard of the villa impressive. The heated pool is great - means you can take a dip any time of year!
It's so satisfying for us to hear you had a great holiday!
Casa Maria villa
Four of us spent a week in casa Maria villa , gated community .
Overall the villa was clean , tidy . Well supplied with crockery etc . Tea towels , hand towels , washing up liquid
Plenty of towels plus a beach towel each most useful to save carrying B towels from home . A bonus to have free WFI
The beds were very comfy , nice linen etc. Lounge area clean & tidy large settees again V, comfy
Outside area there is plenty of seating , loungers , cane sofa etc
Pool was cleaned twice a week large community pool adjacent to villa . In built BBQ. Casa Mariia has Everything you need for a week in the sun . I would recommend this villa and hopefully will return . Glyn the owner was in constant touch via EMail on booking this villa up . Excellent communication
One small negative a gate at the bottom end of the road would have been useful to access outside of the community . If your fit and mobile ( which we are the walk out of the top controlled gate is a fair distance to the local shops and restuarants .
Great to hear you all enjoyed your break at Casa Maria and we'd love to have you back anytime in the future.
The community are voting on an additional gate - so watch this space!
Excellent,clean comfortable lovely outdoor area
The villa was great ,owners very helpful lovely pool area and also a community pool which was very clean .The villa was very clean and comfortable as the weather was a bit off on a few days there was no problem staying in .We didn’t use the bbq it was large enough for a family.Not far from a few bars and restaurants bus into town is on the doorstep a taxi that picked us up outside the gate was €7 to rubicons harbour
We would definitely stay again
Thanks for taking the time to submit a review, it's much appreciated.
We are really pleased to hear that you had a good stay and would consider us for a future holiday.
The weather during your visit was very unusual so it's good to know you were comfortable at the villa and were able to relax during your break.
Excellent bed Lovely Pool Not Private
The Kitchen ,living room and one of the outsde eating areas are overlooked by another two villas in close proximity front and behind . The villa at the pool side also overlooks the patio/pool....noisey dog there also ! All interferes with privacy/ peace and quiet !
Owners are nice but seem to find it hard to accept when there is a problem(broken toaster broken bin not enough hot water TV Wifi) Tv was sorted on last evening
Lots of rules threatening loss of deposit.
Still received standard email on departure threatening us with cleaning costs even though we,d experienced broken glass on arrival ! (as reported)
We regularly stay in Playa Blanca . V disappointed with this villa
Addressing your comments:
1.Overlooked by two villas in close proximity front and behind:
By Googling the villa & area, you would have seen the villa’s location & its relation to others in the community - it's clearly shown. Gardens are walled to the highest level allowable by community rules. Villas are 1 storey & low level - I cannot see how you were overlooked.
2.Villa at the pool side overlooks patio/pool.noisey dog there also!
It is separated from our villa by a 5ft double thickness volcanic wall. The neighbour has an elderly dog, it barks on occasion, however it isn’t non-stop & the overall ambience of the area is very quiet. There are strict community rules in place to prevent nuisance from noise.
The toaster was broken (it didn’t eject bread). I offered a replacement, you replied not to bother. Since your stay, new toaster installed.
An Ikea bin, it wasn’t broken, the pedal mechanism had separated from the lid! You had the job of lifting the lid to use it or could have simply re-clipped the lid on. Since your stay, new bin has been installed.
It's an 80l tank, for the water to run cold, you consumed close to 80l in a short space of time. If you had requested it, we could have adjusted the temp.
During your stay, the sub for the TV expired. After informing us, it was re-enabled in a few hours. It later became clear, you had ignored warnings of this for 2 days. When you reported WiFi was dropping out, It was also resolved within a few hours.
7. I can only assume this is the ‘threatening’ line you refer to: “Unfortunately, should any of the above not be completed, then an additional cleaning fee will be charged.” Threatening!? I note, within 24hrs of your return to the UK, you had full damage deposit repaid without even requesting it.
It’s clear the majority of issues arose after we were unable to accommodate your request to stay beyond the agreed 10am departure time as we had new guests arriving at 2pm.
A few things you didn’t include in your review:
1.We arranged cleaners to prepare the villa the day before your stay, so you could have the keys early (at your request).
2.Each time I offered to visit & rectify issues, you declined my offer.
3.When I arranged for the pool technician to visit, you said "I sent your man away"!
4.The glass you found was barely visible to the eye.
If you are reading this, please take the time to look at the other reviews to see how accurate this one is!
Playa Blanca is the most southerly resort on Lanzarote and has been called the St Tropez of the Canary Islands with the best beaches, restaurants and bars on the island. From Playa Blanca's seafront you can see Fuerteventura, which is a mere 11km by ferry. Ferries cross to the island several times a day from the harbour. Most of the bars and restaurants are situated on the sea front and offer outstanding views. Playa Blanca has a very relaxed atmosphere but also offers something for everyone.
