Further details indoors:
The Villa has 3 spacious bedrooms with 2 sets of twin beds and a master bedroom with a Queen size bed. There are 2 en suites and a family bathroom. Off the master bedroom is a spacious balcony where the views over the sea and down to Playa Blanca and over to the"Red Mountain" have to be seen to be believed. They are outstanding. You also have a view of the large pool from here.
The view from the Juliette balcony in the second bedroom of Playa Blanca port is also spectaculor.
The fully fitted kitchen is equipped with a large fridge freezer, built in oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave & washing machine.
The large lounge has a TV, DVD player & CD player. There is a sofa bed which sleeps 2 & chair as well as a stylish dining table and chairs. French doors lead out to the south Ffcing spacious terrace with sun loungers and table & chairs.
Further details outdoors:
The Villa is set in its own grounds in a plot size of 450m2. There is a patio area to the front and side with tables and chairs as well as sun loungers and then the garden has typical Canary plants and trees. There is also a barbecue so al fresco dining can also be enjoyed on the Patio outside the French doors leading off the lounge.The garden area is very large and so we have had a private walled garden built within the original garden. You access this from the lounge via a glass door, which is made from toughened and laminated security glass. The view from the lounge door is now spectacular over to Playa Blanca Bay and the "Red Mountain" The "Red Mountain" is so named because the sun sets behind it turning the entire mountain in lovely shades of red! The inner garden is delightful with many plants and sun beds as well as a dining table and chairs. It also has a built in BBQ. The inner garden is very safe and secure for toddlers because it is entirely enclosed. We think that this is a very special and unique feature of the Villa and worth a special mention.
Smoking is permitted on the balconies and terrace areas.
Local activities include diving, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, wind-surfing, water skiing, mountain biking, mountaineering, paragliding.
A new waterpark opened in May 2012 is a further attraction in Playa Blanca. it is located on the Ligfhthouse side of the Harbour.
The Lanzarote region
Lanzarote has more sunshine than any of the other Canary Islands and the least rainfall which falls on no more than 16 days in a year. Playa Blanca lies on the Southerly tip of Lanzarote facing Fuerteventura and is reputed to be the sunniest and most sheltered resort on the Island.
The Timanfay national Park s a 20 minute drive from the Villa and was declared a national park in 1974. The park looks like the surface of the moon only more colourful with a superb volcanic landscape. If you only make time for one trip then it must be the trip to the Timanfaya National Park where you can take a camel ride across the parkland, visit the Museo de Rocas museum which has many geological specimens from the park.
Crowning the volcanic hill is the Diablo Restaurant, designed by Cesar Manrique and where much of the food is grilled over a barbecue using the natural heat from the volcano which is 6m (20ft) below the ground.
The Playa Blanca / Marina Rubicon area
The Villa is situated in a complex of 48 Villas which share a very large and attractive pool with sun terraces in well maintained gardens. In the next street to the Villa is the exclusive 5* Gran Melia Volcan hotel which is considered to be the most luxurious hotel on the Island.
A very short stroll along the Coastal path brings you to the extremely tasteful and attractive Marina Rubicon with its designer shops and upmarket restaurants where meals are remarkably reasonably priced. You will find a fine selection of restaurants including specialist in local fresh fish, Chinese, Italian and Spanish.
10 minutes further along the coastal path is the resort of Playa Blanca which was once a small fishing port and although it has grown over the last 10 years it has still retained its charm.From Playa Blanca's harbour there are ferries to Corraljejo on Fuerteventura and this takes 30 minutes.

We chose Lanzarote due to Easter being early this year and knew we could pretty much guarantee the weather. We weren't disappointed as we had beautiful weather for 2 whole weeks which resulted in temperatures of high 20 's and early 30's.
The villa when we arrived was better than my expectations as sometimes photos aren't true to the properties current state. The villa is clean, well laid out with all the amenities you need to make your stay comfortable. The beds were really comfortable too and the bedding of a really good quality. The bathrooms are lovely and the shower in the ensuite to the master room is great. The villas boast fantastic views of the Marina, Fuerteventura, the pool and the mountains.
The patio areas front and back are sun traps with sunshine all day long. Lots of seating outside for alfresco dining.
The Marina itself is 700m away with some of the best food I have eaten. Lani's Grillhouse was our favourite place day and night. You can sit on comfortable sofas outside on the Marina during the day drinking champagne cava whilst the children feed the fish with the free bread provided by the staff.
Playa Dorado is a pleasant mile walk along the promenade. The beach is spotless with plenty of places to get refreshments close by. The golf bar was a great place to grab a drink and a quick bite at really good prices.
Playa Blanca is a further half mile walk down the promenade with yet again more great food and bars.
There wasn't one thing I could find fault with on this holiday. We have been back a week and I have already boked to go back for 2 weeks Easter 2015!!
Well, what can I add!? Thank you for describing my Villa and the Marina, Playa Dorada and Playa Blanca so clearly. Just to explain distances in time, the Marina is a 5 minute walk from the Villa, Playa Dorada is a further 15 minute walk and Playa Blanca a further 10 minute walk. You reach all these places by turning right out of the Villa. However, if you were to turn left you reach the beautiful and un-commercial Papagayo beaches within 10 minutes' walk. These really are spectacular and only the first beach has any facilities, after this you could be on any deserted Caribbean Island (of which I have visited a few) but in my opinion the Papagayo beaches have whiter more powdery sand and a brilliant and sparkly deep blue/bright green sea. Thanks for your repeat booking and I look forward to welcoming you back.
