"Generous space, but a little mean otherwise"
This was our fourth time in Playa Blanca, and our usual villa was unavailable, so we hopped across the road to Villa Ventura. This is a large villa, with 4 ensuite bedrooms, which would make a lot of … More
We live and run our business in Lanzarote so are personally on hand 24 hrs to manage the 5 properties we own and rent out. Mediocre reviews can have a detrimental effect on our business and we would rather any issues be brought to our attention on arrival or during your stay. It is only fair that we have the opportunity to rectify any matters during your stay and in doing so we are able to do what we strive to and ensure you to get the most from your holiday with us.
We met these guests shortly after arrival and asked everything was fine with the villa or if they needed anything else. We were told that the villa was great and nothing else was required. Following this review we have emailed these guests for specific information regarding what they considered to be in need of refurbishment that was tired or worn as the review is rather vague in this respect. We have waited over a week for a reply and as yet have not received a response.
Numerous guests prior to and following have commented on the high standard and quality of furnishings and decoration of the property. Due to the popularity of this property we have a proactive maintenance program which involves frequent painting and decoration as well as ensuring than any items that are worn or tired are repaired or replaced immediately.
We would like to clarify that the villa is furnished with good quality ikea sofas and kitchen base units however everything else is bespoke made, from the fitted hardwood wardrobes and marble/wrought iron bedside tables to the solid wood dining furniture, coffee table and side board etc. Therefore whilst we feel that the quality of the top end Ikea products is of a high standard to say the villa is furnished largely from Ikea is both misleading and incorrect.
Sincere apologies are in order as there should have been bars of soap/hand soap in all of the 5 bathrooms/toilets. Had the guests informed us we would have arranged this immediately. Likewise for any additional kitchen equipment required, dishwasher tablets, washing liquid and condiments.
The view from the lounge and bedrooms is of the large private swimming pool and the various terraced garden and outdoor seating areas. Due to the high level of privacy the perimeter wall blocks the external views from all but the upper terrace seating area where there is a small view of the mountains/sea depending on whether it's villa A or B. This property is not advertised as having a view however we do own 3 other 4 bedroomed properties with panoramic sea or mountain views which could have been opted for if this is a priority.
Whilst the direction of the prevailing wind has been taken into account in the design of the property it should be noted that Playa Blanca is more sheltered than the rest of Lanzarote and during the majority of the year you will feel only a light refreshing breeze. It may be misleading on reading the review to think that Playa Blanca is always very windy.
In summary we are sure that had the guests given us feedback on their concerns during their stay then any issues would have been rectified immediately and we are certain that this would have reflected in much more positive review of the villa.

"The best Christmas ever!"
We stayed at villa Ventura the week before Christmas. The villa was fantastic & had everything we needed to make our stay home from home. The facilities were fantastic, everything was provided that you could possibly need.
Very spacious, with excellent pool & sunbathing area, lovely seating area, ideal for BBQ's and evenings in the sun.
Location, 10 mins walk to local bars & restaurants, and another 5 mins into the main town, lovely walk along the promenade.
The weather was fantastic too, which we didnt expect the week before Christmas, having a week there made our Christmas extra special this year.

"A Home from Home Ideal for Families with young Children"
We have stayed at Villa Ventura 3 times in the last 2 years and found it to be ideal for young children ( we have a 2 and a 3 ½ year old ).
From a safety point of view the large spotless swimming pool area is gated and on a different level from the kitchen and the outside eating area which allowed the kids to play while we made breakfast and lunch.
Inside the Villa the safety gate at both ends of the stairs ensured that we could relax in the knowledge that the vast open plan Kitchen and Sitting area was sufficient for the kids to ramble about.
On one of her rambles about my 3 ½ daughter found an Aladdin's cave of toys in the outside storage room that had been left from previous guests so it was Christmas all over again.
Overall the place is Spotless, Airy and full of all the normal Utensils,etc you would require at home and as such the whole Villa Ventura Experience has each time been a home from home for us.
From a location point of view it is ideal,
The Water Park is 2 minutes across the road,
And it's just a 5 minute stroll to the Flamingo beach and its café's and supermarkets with a further 15 minute stroll along the beautiful promenade to the main town.
Marie and Steve who look after the Villa are only a phone call away should you have any problems and I have to say they have been more than accommodating to us from the first time we contacted them re hiring the villa right through to our most recent visit.
Finally I would recommend Villa Ventura to Families or Large Groups of people who are looking for a good time away but enjoy the comforts of home.

"Fabulous Villa, Location & the owners were very helpful."
Villa Ventura is in an ideal location just a few minutes from Playa Flamingo beach, lots of lovely restaurants and bars nearby. The water park at the end of the road was a fantastic day out for young and old!! All in all a fabulous time was had by all. No complaints at all .
Thank you very much for your review! We do hope we see you again at some point in the near future! Kindest Wishes!

"Fantastic holiday, can't wait to go back!"
We had a wonderful holiday in Playa Blanca. The resort is lovely with beautiful beaches. What made our holiday was the villa we stayed in. We couldn't have asked for more from the owners who gave us plenty of advise on the best places to go to get the most out of our stay. The pool was lovely and private and there was plenty space for us all. It really was home from home just bigger and better with warmer weather!! We will definitely be going back!!
Thank you for your review! It's great to hear you had such a lovely time here and are a fan of Playa Blanca too! We shall look forward to hearing from you again in the future! Very best wishes!

"Good and bad."
We have just returned from a very nice week in Lanzarote at the Villa Ventura (A). I have looked to the web page but there doesn't appear to be any place to leave feedback. The following we belie… More
Thanks for your review and pleased to hear you had a nice week here in Lanzarote and in our property - we would just like to clarify the points you have raised.
- Steep pool steps and slippery tiles.
We have been renting this property for 6 years and no one has mentioned having any difficulty with the steps into the pool. They are concrete Roman steps (not ladders). The pool tiles are slippery when wet. The other option is a sand coated tiles which improve grip when wet however if you do fall the consequences are far worse as you get bad injuries from the rough flooring. We prefer to tell our children to be careful and to dry their feet when leaving the pool.
- BBQ Light.
There is a bright BBQ light and the switch is located on the side of the BBQ beside the switch for the pool light.
- Sky not being full Package.
We do pay for the full Sky package however we don't advertise as having the “full sky package”. We do have a 1.2 meter dish however as we are 2000 miles away from the intended broadcast area (UK) we are currently unable to receive the UK terrestrial channels as they are broadcast on a narrow beam over the UK. We do receive 100's of other Sky programmes including premium channels (movies, sports etc). In order to receive all of the UK terrestrial channels you need a 4 meter dish which some of the bars do have but very few private properties.
- Outside Plastic Table.
We own Ventura B but manage and rent A for friends of ours. B does have wooden outside furniture and we will speak with the owners of A of which I'm sure will replace the outside table.
- Price reductions.
We do occasionally offer discounts for last minute bookings however we permanently offer competitive rental prices. If you have specific dates we recommend booking early.
Internet is an option on our booking form that very few guests request. The price for this is 50€ per week which is also made clear on booking and we hire the necessary dongle from an external company. The internet providers in Lanzarote do charge more than those in the UK. Most of the bars and restaurants do offer WIFI.
