About Marie Glendenning
We first came to the island in 2000 and after always promising we would never holiday in the same place twice, we have not been able to help ourselves come back to Lanzarote - and in March 2009 we eventually upped sticks and brought our then 2 and a half year old daughter and 18 month old son out to live here permanently. Having four villas which we let to holidaymakers and a sail boat which my husband takes people out for day trips on, we're pretty busy looking after them but when we're not doing this we enjoy having as much fun as possible with our two children. We have all settled well here and are loving the Spanish way of life, the relaxed and loving nature of the locals and not to mention the "slightly" better than UK weather!
Marie Glendenning purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Marie Glendenning chose Yaiza
As we already knew and loved Playa Blanca we came on holiday in January 2007 with our then 5 month old daughter. We stayed a few streets away from Villa Vida and although it was not our intention at the time, we came home having bought this property! We loved the area, the peacefulness and the fact it was only a short walk to supermarkets, the centre of the Village, the beach and the promenade.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Vida is a beautiful property and has the most wonderful uninterrupted view of Montaña Roja from the poolside dining area, which changes as the sun moves all day long, with it eventually setting behind it. It is fantastically beautiful! The villa is spacious and benefits from a large master bedroom, the super king size bed always being a favourite! It's close to the beach, promenade and town yet far enough away so you can also enjoy peaceful quiet nights in or barbecuing on the traditional Canarian barbecue.

Ideal for the children and grandkids. The safety barrier to the pool area worked well. Pool man Russ came three times and very helpful.
Very nice stay
We chose Villa Vida because of the location - it was only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and believe me if you want to avoid using taxis it wouldn't be realistic to stay much further away from the front. Conveniently located for Aqualava waterpark and walks up Montana Roja. We really enjoyed using the pool (it was big enough to swim lengths) and reading/relaxing on the sun loungers. We had a minor issue with the electrics but were able to get in touch with the owner via whatsapp and she gave instructions on how to fix the problem - she did offer to call in and do it herself so couldn't have been more helpful really.
The only negative aspect of our stay was that the bedding smelt very well used but we were only there a week so put up with it.
Tried several local restaurants, the pick of which were Cervantes (for fillet steak) and the Tipico Espanol next door which does very good pizzas for 3-4 euro. La Katedral is also worth a mention for tapas a little more imaginative than what is on offer in most establishments. Wouldn't bother being too fussy if you are looking for fresh local fish or paella as these are available to a good standard pretty much everywhere.
Villa with pool in Playa Blanca
Thank you so much for a lovely holiday . The villa was lovely and spacious. Pol was heated I swam every day .Location was also good. I would recommend this villa to other people. I would also stay there again.
Great villa, great location and great management
Just returned and the villa was perfect, plenty of room and only a stones throw away from the beach and restaurants. The management team were brilliant with nothing too much trouble. They went above and beyond to make our stay perfect with any issues sorted asap. This is the sort of service that makes a big difference when thinking about booking a villa and something that you don't always get with most companies. I would definitely book again. Thanks
Lovely villa in great location
Just spent a lovely relaxed week in this villa. Spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for 5 adults. Lovely warm pool and great outside table and chairs.
As regular visitors to Playa Blanca the villa was ideally placed for some of our favourite bars and restaurants which was a big bonus.
Communication was great and any queries quickly answered.
Already planning a return visit next year!
