About Dr Deborah Corker
My name is Dr Deborah Corker and I purchased Villa Miraflores a couple of years ago as I loved it so much, and had stayed there on numerous occasions. During school term time, I live in Oxford with my daughter. Out of term I spend as much time in Miraflores as possible. Both myself and my daughter horse ride in Lanzarote at Lanzarote a Caballo and use the local Manta dive centre. I have recently refurnished much of the villa with new leather suites and local art. My daughter's input has been in the installation of Wii U games console. Such that the property is maintained at a high standard, and also so any repairs can be dealt with immediately, I use Lanzarote Property Management services. Hence, any problem, and they are on site immediately. I hope you enjoy the villa.
Dr Deborah Corker purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Dr Deborah Corker chose Tías
I bought the property, not just for the property itself, which is unusual, but also due to its perfect location. Just a 10 min walk from the sea and watersports, a short drive from the horses, but at the same time the area of Los Mojones is quiet, safe and tranquil. A perfect combination. We love the activities the island offers.
Pool / Spa
Please smoke cigarettes on outside patio.
I am afraid the house is unsuitable for hen parties or stag parties and these are strictly forbidden.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Absolutely beautiful Villa
Our family of seven stayed in this beautiful Villa earlier this month. The Villa has so much space inside and out and if you want a few minutes to yourself then this is the perfect place. Deborah the owner has obviously worked very hard and listened to all feedback over the years as there is everything you could wish for to make the stay enjoyable. The whole family loved the pool, hot tub, and the table tennis, by the time we left it was getting very competitive ! We also made use of the BBQ a couple of evenings.
Anne the Villa Manager popped in to check we were all okay and is very friendly and helpful , we had no problems at all but it was reassuring to know if we did she was on hand.
Thank you Debbie for sharing your beautiful Villa with us and we will definitely be returning.
Linda & Family
Thanks for the lovely review. So glad you enjoyed Miraflores, hope to see you back soon. All the best, Debbie.
Lovely large villa in a quiet, scenic location
Quiet, private location. We were a party of 8 including 2 children under 6. Very spacious accommodation, good facilities including the lovely heated pool and hot tub which were used daily! BBQ used most evenings. Each bedroom has en suite.
6 Nations rugby live and plenty of cartoons for the kids.
Fresh towels provided mid-week.
A car is essential and there is secure parking.
Lovely spacious villa with everything you need to enjoy your holiday
We were 4 adults (parents and grandparents) and a 7 year old, on holiday for a week in late October. First impressions “wow!”. The villa is really spacious. Big enough to have your own space and places to sit together if you want to. The kitchen is well equipped and has all the mod cons. The pool is lovely and warm and the hot tub is great (try the massage setting). As other have said, Lidl is the closest and best supermarket (decent wine 1euro!). Didn’t venture out that much as we enjoyed staying at the villa! But there are dozens of places to eat around 10 mins walk away. Would love to visit Miraflores again but it’s booked up the weeks we want!
A couple of things- the booking process is very easy and the villa owner very helpful
- watch out for the one way system round Puerto del Carmen!
- the road to the harbour is steep so not best for those unsteady on their feet, but 2 euros each way in a taxi
So glad you loved Miraflores and sorry, there are currently no available dates that match your needs. The dates for children's school holidays can book up a year in advance, particularly half terms. I'll be opening up 2019 dates the first week of December, i.e. in a couple of weeks so let me know if you have any thoughts for the year after next. Always lovely to see returning customers.
Have no complaints about this lovely Villa. What you see and read in the broucher is what it is.
Went with my family of son and daughter and their spouses and two teenager granddaughters. We all enjoyed our 10 days in this nice Villa. Plenty of space in doors and out doors with eating area,pool, hot tub, sun loungers and garden settee. Kitchen/diner was well equipped with everything that was needed. Was good that all bedrooms had ensuite. Went out to a few Restaurants that we recommended : Buda Bar, McSorley, Scotch Corner and best meal was at Puerto Bahia Restaurant. Also wasn't far from Supermarket Lidl ,but coming back was up hill so taxi was required. Taxis service was good. Overall very enjoyable holiday. Hope to return at some other time.
A cut above
Overall impressions were very positive. There were 6 adults (my wife and I with our two children and their partners with their two under ones). It immediately felt a home from home even though the property and interior design/finishing were on the luxurious side. Everything you could possibly need was there, from bottle openers to pool inflatables, even BBQ utensils.There was even space for all of us to sit together, (sunbeds, lounge, outside dining) but there was also enough space to have your own area and time to yourself. We could go on praising the villa and fill this review with how much we all loved and enjoyed our stay so we'll add a few points that might help. The villa is close to the town, bars and supermarkets but it is a steep ascent back so we would consider a small hire car next time especially as the villa has ample gated parking. There was 6 adults and two infants so we soon accumulated recycling and rubbish which needed to be carted to communal collection bins which could be an issue for some groups. Wi-fi was spotty but unless you're constantly requiring a signal it was good enough. Sky sports is only available in local bars by local government decree but a few English channels (BBC 1,2,& 4, ITV etc) are available at the villa. There are supermarkets nearby but none within 10 minutes walk so worth barring in mind when carrying 8 litre water containers/milk etc unless you use taxis' every trip. The manager, Anne, introduced herself early during our stay so it was nice to know if we had any issues who we were dealing with and that she was only a phone call away. Before we went on the holiday any queries we had were promptly answered helpfully through good communications with the owner. In summary we had a wonderful time, we would recommend the villa and also the Tapas at Puerto Bahia! We'll just add that taxis are readily available at the airport and cheaper than pre-booking. We chose the latter (Suntransfer) and would recommend these too, especially for big parties if you all want to arrive together. Thank you for letting us share your home.
Best villa we have stayed in on Lanzarote. Loads of space, well maintained wth large heated pool. Easy reach of sea front and restaurants. Would definitely return again.
Special interest holidays:
Island excursions are numerous. For those interested, Last Minute Travel excursions are popular. For those into in watersports, the local dive centre, Manta Diving, is about 10mins walk away from the villa and is the one I use and recommend. An english establishment this offers a broad range of scuba and snorkelling adventures.
For those with children, the nearest theme park and water park is the highly recommended Rancho Texas Park. This park offers pony rides, canoeing, 3 large pools with slides, pre-booked interactions with Sea Lions. This park is approximately 10 mins drive from the villa
Horse-riding lessons and treks are available from Lanzarote a caballo for all levels of experience. The stables also offer camel rides and off-road buggies.
The first beach is around 1km from the villa, a 10 min stroll. The main Puerto del Carmen promenade and beach is a further 5 mins walk from there.
Lanzarote airport is around 10km from the villa. The drive is primarily main roads such that it takes around 10-15mins in the car.
Taxis are available from the airport, and there are numerous taxi ranks in the main Puerto del Carmen town if you are carrying heavy shopping. Hence, car hire is not essential.
The main Puerto del Carmen town is around 0.8km away. Hence an abundance of shops and restaurants are within walking distance.
Banks, supermarkets, duty free shops, large shopping centres, softball arenas, crazy golf etc., are all available within 10 - 15 mins walk. There are submarine rides in both the old port, and in the popular marina of Puerto Calero. To get to this marina, you can either take a short taxi ride, or travel by water boat from the old Puerto del Carmen port.
