Internet TV with all terrestrial channels available (BBC1, BBC2, ITV, C4 and C5 and much more) Casa Maja is an established destination for the discerning holiday maker, the reviews are worth reading! The villa was designed as a dream home and has many features that make it more than the run of the mill rental property. From the three tastefully decorated en-suite bedrooms - all with goose feather and down quilts and pillows, spacious and comfortable living room, the large and well-appointed kitchen and dining room to the not overlooked pool area and terraces you will see that Casa Maja is intended for the relaxed enjoyment of the superb climate of Lanzarote. The upstairs king bedroom has a large sea view terrace while the downstairs double bedroom opens directly onto the poolside. The lounge, which also opens onto the pool area, has a calm and “chilled out” atmosphere with all amenities, including three full size sofas, needed for a night - or day - in and the designer kitchen is fully equipped. All outside furniture is supplied with padded cushions where appropriate, there is a large barbeque and outside stone table and seating for al fresco entertaining. Enjoy!

Brillant 2 week holiday at Casa Maja
My brother and I spent a lovely two weeks in Mike’s Villa. We arrived early evening on 4 July 2018, Mike had arranged for a lovely welcome evening meal for us on arrival. It was also true about the welcome pack of essential food and drink being available. Mike showed us around his lovely villa and made us feel really welcome. When you walk in, it just feels like home. It shows true pride of ownership in every detail. The kitchen has every item you could ever want, and all are high quality. The pots and pans are top-notch. Stove, dishwashers and laundry machine all worked perfectly.
Mike also is a wealth of information about the Island as he has lived there for 25+ years. Mike is very accessible and very accommodating, living nearby. The next day he kindly showed us the best way to get into Tias, where the local supermarkets were and where to get the local buses.
Mike’s property is in a quite lovely part of Tias and the property is a perfect base from which to set off and explore the whole island at your leisure or as part of a tour group as there are plenty of tourist centres where you can book trips around the island. There is a good bus route in the centre of Tias and also local taxis available for about 10 euros if you do not want to drive everywhere.
The beds are comfortable, the location is excellent and close to everything you might want or need. Yet, it is a quiet oasis of calm.TV worked great with lots of various shows/moves you are able to access. You were provided with clean towels frequently.
We had use of a private pool which was good for me as I am not a great swimmer and appreciated the fact that I could practice my swimming most days. In fact I got quite a sun tan. The pool was cleaned and checked quite frequently.
Lanzarote is beautiful and if you have never been, you should go. I am not sure there is another place on earth quite like it. The entire Island is neat and clean, the people are amazing and friendly. The scenery is other-worldly and the walks along the promenades by the beach in Puerto Del Carman are very user friendly, having a separate lane for bike users.
Many thanks to Mike and Wendy for allowing the use of their property. It was, indeed, a privilege and we hope to be able to come back again soon.
This is the cleanest, neatest place I have ever stayed. I manage a large commercial cleaning company with nearly 1,000 clients: cleanliness is important to me!
The owner, Mike, designed and built this property from the ground up. When you walk in, it just feels like home. It shows true pride of ownership in every detail. The kitchen has every item you could ever want, and all are high quality. The pots and pans are top-notch. Lots of spices as well. Stove, dishwashers and laundry machine all worked perfectly.
I have rented numerous times with VRBO/Homeaway and this property is the best, by far. To top it off, Mike provided a "starter package" that included home-made spaghetti Bolognese (it was delicious!), with garlic bread. Also included was 2 bottles of wine, a bottle of champagne, crackers, chips, jams, milk, tea, juice and numerous other items to get us through a day or 2. Incredibly thoughtful. Mike also is a wealth of information about the Island as he has lived there for 25+ years.
The owner is very accessible and very accommodating. The beds are comfortable, the location is excellent and close to everything you might want or need. Yet, it is a quiet oasis of calm.TV worked great with lots of various language shows/moves to access.
The pool and loungers were all in excellent working order. Nothing is amiss in this property.
And Lanzarote: well, if you have never been, you should go. I am not sure there is another place on earth quite like it. The entire Island is neat and clean, the people are amazing and friendly. The scenery is other-worldly.
And this property is a perfect base from which to explore.
Many thanks to Mike and Wendy for allowing the use of their property. It was, indeed, a privilege.

Absolutely wonderful holiday. Everything you could think of is provided in this gorgeous Villa. The kitchen has everything you would need to prepare your own meals which we took advantage of as we love trying local food when in Lanzarote. We loved the Nespresso machine and bought one on our return home. The welcome basket was really appreciated and we love that as returning visitors Mike includes certain things he knows we like. The pool as ever was spotless and just the right temperature which felt lovely and warm even when the odd cloud appeared which was very rare. This was our 4th time at Casa Maja and we have already booked for next year. It's the perfect Villa holiday you will definitely want to return to. Thank you Mike & Wendy
Excellent holiday, villa, location & host - simple as that!
We had an excellent holiday staying at Casa Maja. The accommodation exceeded our expectation and was a perfect location for exploring the island as well as being very convenient for supermarkets and restaurants. Getting to the beach or doing some of the lovely coastal walks is a breeze - everything is so accessible.
The owner, Mike, couldn’t have done anymore to help and assist - his communications from the minute we booked to us arriving were nothing short of perfect including booking airport pick up car hire for us at really good rates. Mike is there when/if you need his assistance otherwise you are free to get on with your holiday.
You can book this villa in the full knowledge that you will have a great time in a great place and be looked after by a host that cares about you, you’re family and your holiday.
Thank you Mike for all you help and assistance and yes, we will be back again 😎
March Visit to Casa Maja 2018
We had a lovely 8 days in this well appointed and stylish villa. The pool is heated a welcome treat for visitors during the chillier months. The garden is secluded and spacious, there is a lovely view of the surrounding hills and the sea from the upstairs very large balcony. The whole villa is very well equipped and Mike the owner who lives close by is very helpful and provides a really good welcome pack. Wendy his partner is the most amazing cleaner and the place is spotless. It is hard to find anything that is not good about the place, our only possible grouch could be that the streaming television connection is a bit hit and miss.
Couldn't want for anything Mike is a fantastic host nothing is too much trouble and with him living next door he's very handy The welcome basket was superb with everything you need for your first day the villa was spotless it's the best villa we have stayed in and we have stayed in a lot I would like to wish Mike all the very best he deserves the best for all the fantastic work he does thankyou from the bottom of our hearts Mike God Bless xxx
