Barbara Wells purchased this Villa in 1984
Why Barbara Wells chose Playa Blanca
We bought the villa over 34 years ago when Playa Blanca was a small village and over the years have watched it grow into the beautiful resort it is today. We fell in love with this property because of the sheer size of it and knew it would be ideal for our two young boys at the time to spend the school holidays there, enjoying the spacious surroundings, together with the added security knowing they could play outside the villa because not much through traffic on the roads and is still like that today. We also love the prime location the villa is situated in, close to all amenities and the local beach, approximately 5-8 minutes walk away.
What makes this Villa unique
The unique features of my villa are the specious surroundings, sitting on approximately three quarters of an acre of land with beautiful well established gardens together with 3 large terraces, fantastic areas to chill out and enjoy the lovely Lanzarote weather. The villa has its own 10 x 6 meters secluded heated swimming pool with diving board, together with a lockable door for young children’s safety which is peace of mind for all parents. The property has been completely refurbished since 2016/2017 with a new kitchen, 3 new bathrooms, a stunning re-tiled BBQ area with terracotta tiles keeping in tradition with the Spanish look. There are 3 beaches in Playa Blanca, the main local one at the front, the dorado beach to the left of the main local beach with sun loungers and the flamingo beach to the right with sun loungers at a small cost. The bus/coach station is situated at the bottom of Los Calamares for easy access in getting around to all the local attractions; water parks, marina, volcano, ports and ferries.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Positives the villa was clean plenty of room and private with modern bath rooms and kitchen and ideal for a relaxing break close to town centre and beach only 10min walk
Barbara was great with the booking all went like a dream
Would have liked air con due to mozzies and larger beds

The villa was absolutely amazing. Everything was so clean, modern and homely. The layout was brilliant and really allowed multiple guests enough privacy and space of their own. The different outside areas were perfect! There’s a spacious BBQ area, front seating area as well as a very generous pool space. The pool! It was amazing - huge and very warm. We loved lazing around and enjoying the villa and all of its amenities. Also Barbra was a brilliant host - really quick and efficient with all correspondence. All in all, a fabulous summer holiday with my family and the villa made it truly brilliant. Thank you so much! Yas and family.

A great place to stay
We have just had a lovely stay at this villa and without doubt it was excellent. The location is brilliant, a short walk into town. The pool was lovely and warm which was great for our 14 month old granddaughter who found her water wings over the last 10 days. The villa was spotless and well laid out with lots of outdoor dining places. The only thing I missed was outdoor relaxing seating other than the sunbeds, such as a sofa and chairs but that is only a tiny blip in a lovely place. Thank you Barbara for a lovely break. We will certainly look to visit again.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments about my villa and so glad you thought the location was brilliant. So happy your granddaughter found the pool lovely and warm too. I have taken on board your comments about maybe a sofa bed in the outside areas and when I next go to the villa I will look into this. Guests do move some of the chairs from the pool area around the outdoor patios to relax but thank you for your feedback.
I'm so glad you had a lovely break and as you say you will certainly look to visit my villa again, thank you for saying that, it means a lot and I look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Very warm regards, Barbara.
Great villa with lovely pool and good location, short walk to beachfront bars/ restaurants. Kitchen amenities excellent too. Will stay here again.
Thank you so much for your Review and for saying my villa was great, the pool was lovely and the villa was in a good location and the kitchen amenities were excellent too, really do appreciate your kind comments, thank you so much, it means a lot.
Very happy and glad you would like to stay at my villa again one day, this is much appreciated, thank you. It says it all when guests would like to go back to the villa and I too would love to see you again in the future, thank you.
This villa is perfect!
From the moment of booking this villa it was a positive experience but when we arrived we were blown away by the size of it! There was 5 adults and we couldn't believe how much room there was, we certainly didn't get under each others feet! The villa is very quiet, no traffic or people noise and we barely saw any of the neighbors. It's a 5 minute walk from the bars, restaurants and shops and feels like a very safe area. The villa was equipped with everything you need..I found my self getting caught out every time I thought ' I bet there isn't a...' and there it was! A real home from home, spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. There was almost immediate response to the queries I had and the instructions for the stay were easy to follow. I can't recommend it enough. Thank you.. we'll definitely be back!!
Thank you so much for your lovely review and to hear you were blown away by the villa means so much to me, so thank you so much for that. Los Calamares is a very safe area and as you say only a 5 minute walk from the restaurants, shops, bars and local beach. So happy you found everything you needed in the villa and I have worked so hard to completely refurbish the villa, so guests can enjoy their stay and like you and other guests say, its like home from home and I pride myself in keeping the villa looking nice and clean which is all down to my villa management,Tracy who looks after it for me. Thank you for your lovely comments, yes the villa is very spacious, and as you say and you don't get under each others feet.
Thank you for saying you will definitely be back, that says it all and I look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Very Best Wishes
