This is a beautiful, quiet and relaxing, authentically restored Finca, or farmhouse, which shares the site of an old farmstead on the south side of the island. At the heart of the house is the pool, where the terrace area and pergola provide total privacy and great shelter from the Lanzarote sun and wind. This house is perfect for either a romantic break or for a family holiday. The bedrooms are cosy, buffered by the 2-3 feet thick old walls. The living area is more contemporary, with an open plan, light feel to it. The kitchen is large, modern and well equipped. There is a large gas BBQ outside, with the teak hexagonal table under the main pergola making for perfect al fresco dining. The marina at Puerto Calero is only five minutes drive away. The sunbathing beaches on the south side of the island ten minutes drive. The surfing beaches on the north side half an hour. The stunning Timanfaya national park starts on the hill, at the base of which the house sits.

Lovely villa, great pool and outside area. It had everything we needed and was a perfect home from home. The location is lovely,
Beautiful, private property
As soon as we arrived and walked into the villa it more than lived up to our expectations. It was beautiful, very clean and our host had left a lovely welcome pack for us. Booking was easy, I was a little nervous about the direct bank transfer but it all went smoothly, our host was very quick to let us know it had all gone through. The instructions to get to the villa were spot on. We used the villa as a base for cycling from which was perfect, they was a supermarket a 5 min drive away and we explored by car as we;;. The villa was so quiet and tranquil and the beautiful pool and outdoor BBQ just added to the atmosphere. Would highly recommend and we will be back.
Truly impressive in every respect
My wife and I rented this property for a fortnight to escape the UK winter.
The accommodation is a tastefully designed and furnished. On arrival we found the property and its appliances to be spotlessly clean. The living area has two comfortable leather settees and an arm chair, a bookcase crammed with novels and CDs, a couple of coffee tables and a TV with an extended package of programmes (including Sky sports and movies). The dining area seats 6 at the spacious table.The kitchen area has a four ring halogen hob and oven. There is a large fridge / freezer. There was a huge quantity of crockery, glassware and cutlery. The kitchen was spacious with plenty of storage and work space. The wi-fi was very effective. We found the bed to be comfortable and there were lots of additional blankets and pillows if needed. There is an en-suite bathroom which has a generously large shower enclosure. It worked efficiently and there was always ample hot water at good pressure. There is a further large family bathroom. There were sufficient towels for us to use. There was a washing machine outside which we did not use although it would have been an asset had we stayed longer. The most striking feature of the property is the heated free-form pool which was extremely clean, being professionally maintained twice weekly.
The villa is a very short distance to the main road running the length of the island – it was very easy to get anywhere on the island in a timely manner. There are large supermarkets about a 15 minute drive away in Playa Honda. The airport is also in the same vicinity.
We would like to thank Rachel, the property manager, for all her speedy replies during the booking process and her assistance whilst staying at the property.
This is a quality property and it comes with the highest recommendation for a carefree holiday.
Wonderful place to stay!
We have stayed at Casa Playa Negra three times and it's our favourite place to stay on the island. It's a real home from home with the added bonus of a private swimming pool. Rachel the manager is always friendly and helpful. I will be booking again soon! Nat and Andy
