About Jacky and John Kennedy

John and Jacky Kennedy own and manage "Holidays Lanzarote". They have two villas,one in Macher and another in Soo. Owners Direct supply a service which generates enquires concerning the villas - John and Jacky then contact the enquirer directly and answer their questions / take their booking. They also have their own website where additional information can be sought. John and Jacky now manage over 40 holiday bookings each year in their two popular rural villas.

Jacky and John Kennedy purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Jacky and John Kennedy chose Mácher

We saw that Casa Camella was for sale on the internet when we were both working on an international development project in Mongolia. Its position was unrivaled with open countryside around it, yet close to all amenities, particularly the marina and waterside restaurants of Puerto Calero. Its potential for development as a fantastic, privately located, rural self catering holiday home struck us immediately. Three years later, completely renovated, became a really popular holiday home for new and our many returning guests.Now, after eleven very successful years of letting we are sure that we made the correct decision. Guests love the house and return again and again. That, we believe is the best testimonial / review we could have hoped for..

What makes this farmhouse unique

Casa Camella offers guests privacy and a quiet holiday location while at the same time being close to all parts of the island. The huge 180 degree sea views are lovely, making the villa, its terrace, heated pool and the open countryside around the house a very special holiday home for couples, families and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have two houses on different parts of the island, - guests testimonials are reflections of their unsolicited opinions.

A perfect villa both inside and outside, beautifully presented and with marvellous views of sea and mountains. John and Jacky have been excellent hosts - very unobtrusive but really helpful. Thank you both and look forward to seeing you again later in the year.

Eileen and Ian Stevenson, Rhayader, Mid Wales.

We have spent a fabulous fortnight here and are very sad to leave! Our boys thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the beach, among everything else. John and Jacky are perfect hosts! We couldn't have asked for a nicer couple. We hope to come back very soon and relive this amazing holiday. Hope that all future holidaymakers have as good a time as we did.

Beverley, Nigel, Maxwell & David. Hampshire, U.K.

Yet another fantastic week. Its just like coming home, especially with the Christmas decorations! Many, many thanks for everything.

Jeanne, Jim and Jenny,

Amazing Villa & a Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at John & Jacky's villa. The location is great and the villa is even better than in the pictures. We have stayed in several villa's in Lanzarote and this one is the best. Everything you could ever need for a relaxing holiday is provided. Theres's great space for the kids to play in and a locked gate for the pool. Then when the kids are asleep there a great seating area for the adults to enjoy the evening. John and Jacky were on hand to deal with any issues and give advice. I would definitely recommend this villa to families with young kids. Our 2 boys are 3 and 4 and they loved it. James, Bernice, Cillian & Sam.

Great private villa in fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

The villa is in a great location 2 mins drive from our favourite Puerto calero and really accessible for the supermarket, airport and loads of other places! The villa itself was spotless and really well maintained, the pool was lovely although it was a bit too windy to go in every day. I'm sure we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review! Being on the island and managing everything ourselves ensures that a five star standard is maintained. As we said when you departed, you know that you will be very welcome here in future. True, it was a windy week, a breeze is nice but during that week was more than people expected - more than we expected too. At least you were not holidaying in Turkey during that dreadful coup. Lanzarote is, as they say, "tranqillo" Best wishes to you both, John and Jacky

Favourite villa

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed in several great places in the Canary Islands but Casa Camella has to be our favourite It’s secluded and private, in an open setting at the foot of hills, with views out to sea and Fuerteventura but close to the airport, shops, restaurants and beaches. With a wonderful swimming pool and different areas in which to make the most of sunshine or shade, it’s hard to do anything other than relax – though it is in a great location for exploring the island; there’s lots to see only a short drive away. An added bonus is a good internet connection/UK TV! John and Jacky were lovely – thoughtful and attentive, but discreet. We do hope we’ll be able to return next year. Clive and Anne Innes

Casa Camella

  • 5 of 5

I can only endorse last year's review - Camella is a lovely holiday location. We had another marvellous holiday here (our 5th) - our very favourite villa. Weather was excellent, the villa is set in a beautiful location, offering an ideal combination of peace and privacy but with all the facilities of Puerto Calero just a few minutes drive away, including boat and submarine trips and a good variety of cuisines in the many restaurants. John and Jacky are perfect hosts - there if you need them, but not if you don't. Looking forward to our next visit.

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? well, to kick off, IF you´re wondering whether to book - just do it, cos you´ll not be disappointed here. To be honest we´re a bit picky (a tad difficult, i´ve been told) and this is one of the very few places we´ve ever returned to. Again and again. 2014 was our 5th (or 6th??) visit and we´ll be back again soon for sure. Frankly we never want to leave! Casa Camella is the perfect destination for friends (works well for 2 couples), families and twosomes (superb honeymoon or romantic destination) and delivers far more than promised. The helpful and courteous hosts make booking a cinch and are there if you need them while always respecting your privacy. We specifically book holiday homes to get away from "the herd" and here we are totally undisturbed. This lovely house is impeccably maintained and spotlessly clean and combines old Canarian charm with a great deal of contemporary flair. Comfortably furnished with quality fittings. Lovely colour scheme. Great details. The location is quiet and peaceful with gorgeous views over the lava fields down to the sea, away from the crowd but within easy striking distance of both the exclusive yachting enclave Puerto Calero (bars, cafes, restaurants, boutiques, marina) and the beaches, shopping and nightlife of vibrant Playa del Carmen. You can of course (and we often do) prepare your meals in the well equipped kitchen or outdoor bbq/cooking station, but there are many great places for dining out or picking up a takeaway (Local, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Indian and much more) just down the hill or in nearby villages. Plenty of info on this and further activities are provided. There are books, games, DVD´s and a generous welcome pack. You´ll be torn between the fabulous high ceilinged master bedroom and the slightly smaller double with lovely views over the pool, the sea and all the way across to Fuertaventura. Comfy beds, plenty of hanging space (and lots of decent coathangers!). Both bedrooms have good sized shower rooms and loo. and so to the pool....what a treat to have your own private heated pool. Sun or shade, pick your spot, from sunrise to sunset. Those fab views again which can also be enjoyed from the upper and lower terraces. In reality much better than the pics! . Stargazing? Oh yes, that too. Glorious nightskies here. Would i recommend to my best friend? I most certainly would, along with family, colleagues and now here too. Go on, get it booked. But don´t you dare take "our" weeks!

Villa Casa Camella

  • 3 of 5

Spent 3 weeks at Villa Casa Camella. The accommodation was really nice, sea views excellent and beds extremely comfortable. John and Jacky were very helpful as they were always on hand because their house backs onto the end of the pool with their bedroom under the raised patio. We shared the laundry facilities with them and often saw John gardening around the villa. Their two dogs were not particularly noisy, nor the main road between Macher and Puerto Calero which the villa fronts sideways onto. The standard of cleaning was disappointing.

Many activity sports can be enjoyed on Lanzarote from road cycling to mountain biking, surfing, kite boarding, sailing, fishing, diving, hangliding, walking, painting and photography. We can make enquiries for you or simply put you in touch with a selection of appropriate organisations - which ever you wish. For walkers there are well marked trails - also look at "Walk Lanzarote" by David and Ros Brawn - a great guide, GPS ready, well used by walkers that stay with us.

Lanzarote is famous for its annual 'Ironman,' also 'Ironman 70.3' and 'Tres Islas' triathlon races - simply watch these gruelling events or for seasoned triathlon competitors, why not join in!


The coast at Puerto Calero marina is 2 mins away by car - literally just down the hill in front of Casa Camella.. A number of good restaurants overlook the marina. The submarine safari which departs from there is amazing. Deep sea game fishing, sailing and scuba is all available there. Puerto del Carmen with its white sandy beaches is 5 / 6 mins away by car. There are plenty of designer shopping opportunities too!


The island's airport is at Arrecife, where frequent charter flights arrive every day from all over Europe bringing holidaymakers to this different and beautiful island. Holidaymakers from UK can get to Lanzarote six days weekly, via Easy Jet, Ryanair, Monarch, Thomas Cook, Thomson and others with Wednesdays usually taken up with German and other European flights.

Further Details:

There is a local Eurospar supermarket located at the Macher island on the LZ2 main road - of a good size and very well stocked - opens Mon - Sat, from 8am until 10pm and also on Fiestas. Also very convenient is the supermarket at Macher garage. It is well stocked but has no meat, fish or delicatessen counters. I opens until late, including on Sunday mornings. There are large supermarkets in Playa Honda and Arrecife) HiperDino, Eurospar, Aldi. Mercadona have opened several supermarkets on th island, the nearest of which is at Playa Honda, near the airport.

Puerto Calero marina has lots of restaurants and bars to choose from, with Puerto del Carmen only a few minutes further with everything from banks, chemists and estate agents to bars, restaurants and night clubs. We can suggest lots of special places to go and eat / visit etc.
