Situated on a 1,000m2 plot in probably the most central and sought after area of delightful Playa Blanca and only 5 minutes walk from the village and beach, this beautiful, traditional villa is furnished to the highest standard and offers all the comforts of home. The villa is detached, has a large drive with parking and private garden all around. There is a private, heated pool with spacious terrace and sunbeds. In addition, residents and guests of Los Calamares have the advantage of the free use of the community tennis court.
The flat screen TV with TV streaming for BBC and ITV channels, plus NetFlix , DVD with a selection of movies plus the Nintendo Wii games console are just the beginning! The hifi system with bluetooth has speakers both in the house and the terrace and the free WiFI even works by the pool!
The terrace is so delightful that you may well find that you do not want to leave and many guests find themselves settling into the 'manana, manana' way of life and hence, have to come again
Playa Blanca: Nestled at the most Southern point of the Island, Playa Blanca (White Beach), once a small fishing village has grown sympathetically into a relaxing and tranquil resort. Family friendly, you can enjoy dinner whilst your children play on the beach in front knowing they are safe and in sight.
There is a vast choice of restaurants including some excellent fish ones and a good selection of shops selling everything from flip-flops to diamond jewellery.
Out and About: Although a car is not necessary for this villa, we generally recommend one. Benefits include avoiding taxi queues at the airport and not having to carry the shopping! A small car may be hired for as little as GBP18.00 per day and when you realise a taxi from the airport costs about €45 it all makes sense! There is of course the added benefit of being able to use a car for day trips perhaps to Fire Mountain or El Golfo.

About Therese Oliver
I fell in love with Lanzarote and in particular Playa Blanca back in 1980 and was an annual visitor until I bought the Squid House in 1998. At the time there were very few houses in Playa Blanca and I had a choice of about 7 !. Over the years the house has evolved and been practically rebuilt . Originally a small two bedroom cottage it is now a spacious 4 bedroom , 3 bathroom house with pool. I still adore Playa Blanca and travel there at every opportunity which means at least 4 times a year. I hope you will love Playa Blanca and the Squid House as much as I do.

Villa in great central location, walking distance from village centre, bars and restaurants. Villa was very clean, well equipped and maintained. It has been extended with good sized en-suite to master garden bedroom. Loved the outdoor space which has been improved since our last stay. Would stay here again!
'Wonderful holiday experience'
Our family party consisting of three generations have just returned from an excellent holiday experience having stayed at Squid House, Playa Blanca. A lovely villa, having a very spacious, well planned layout which is generously equipped. Having a heated swimming pool and excellent outside covered terrace for relaxing or alfresco dining was particularly enjoyable for all concerned. Our grandchildren also got plenty of use playing in the spacious garden area with children's play house and slide.
Comfortable modern ensuite bedrooms with extra's such as slippers, robes and toiletries, even 'mini squid' robes for the little ones further enhance the relaxed vibe one experiences staying in Squid House.
The villa is also very well located being within close proximity of supermarkets, shops, restaurants and two beautiful child friendly beaches.Very good communication with the owner Therese who provided us with reliable recommendations including our airport transfer needs-First Minute Transfers. Wonderful holiday experience had by all, so not surprisingly have already provisionally booked for next year.
The squid house
Fantastic stay at the squid house superb villa
Beautiful house well equipped quiet location lovely week!
3 couples staying for a week in February for a special birthday. Squid House perfect for us. Spacious accommodation, 3 bathrooms and private sleeping areas meant we all had plenty of space. The living areas and outside spaces were very stylishly furnished and comfortable. Everything was there including lots of extras. Despite the not perfect weather, we were outside most of the time using the large covered sitting and eating areas. The lovely warm blankets were a welcome addition inside and out! Beautiful views of sunrise and sunset and the sound of the breeze in Las Brisas palm trees. 5 minutes walk to village and shops. Thanks Therese.
A GEM of a home. All the comforts you need.
This home is huge. Very spacious and well laid out. Lots of extras from mini toiletries in the bathrooms to suncream in the outside bar. So many places to sit outside. Huge table next to the bar under cover and another in the pool area. Ten minute walk down to the shops , restaurants and beach. We can’t wait to go back. It’s perfect.
Playa Blanca centres around the village and harbour. Los Calamares is the closest private villa community to the village and beach. Local area map available by email or fax.
