About the home
Villa Riptide is by far one of the best available villas for your holiday, located in the elite province of Finisterre approximately 4 miles from the hustle and bustle of the town, although it is a pleasant walk along the coastal route into town (especially when you find some nice bars and restaurants along the way). For those of us who prefer a faster pace, there are also 2 bikes in the garage for the use of guests and additional bikes can be hired, including electric bikes.
The breeze from the Atlantic Ocean is extremely soothing and given that the villa has mosquito screens, you can enjoy the breeze at night in the knowledge that there will be no unwelcome visitors.
Make no mistake, if luxury and tranquillity is your criteria you would be hard pushed to better this outstanding villa.

The villa has a hot tub and the pool is electrically heated. No need to pack beach towels, these are provided for use by the pool or on your visits to the beach.
Given that there is no rail around the swimming pool, we would not recommend the villa for children under 5 years old, but should parents wish to bring children, a cot and high chair can be hired through the villa managers.
The Lanzarote region
Lanzarote lying about 95 Km off the west coast of Africa and 1100 Km south west of the Spanish peninsula, is the most unusual of the Canarian Islands. This position ensures more days of sunshine and fewer days of rain than the other Canarian islands, and year round high temperatures.
In the summer, temperatures can be in the 90's, although cooling breezes make it much more pleasant and comfortable in comparison to the Mediterranean , whilst temperature rarely fall below 70 in the winter- ideal for sunbathing and sport during the day and pleasant in the evenings for relaxing over a leisurely meal or drink at one of the many bars and restaurants.
Visiting Lanzarote is an unforgettable experience. Apart from the natural beauty that the island offers, the artist Cesar Manrique has managed to combine art with conservation.There is much to see and do on the island but close to Playa Blanca is the 'Parc National de Timafaya' and 'El Golfo.'
The Playa Blanca area
Playa Blanca has a traffic free, paved promenade lined with good quality al fresco restaurants, boutiques and gift shops and at its centre a small, sandy family beach. This paved promenade stretches some 10 km from El Pechiguera lighthouse at the southern tip of Lanzarote, where the villa is situated, all the way to the fabulous new Rubicon Marina with its quality restaurants and designer shops surrounding floating jetties lined with yachts and motor cruisers of all shapes and sizes
From Playa Blanca you are also around 15 minutes ride from Fuerteventura which is the closest Islands to Lanzarote. This allows you to travel over and explore some of the best beaches in the world.
One of the newest areas in Playa Blanca is Marina Rubicon. This marina is now complete and is becoming the most popular harbour in Lanzarote. There are already many shops and restaurants around the harbour and is now home to many different excursions.

My husband and I have just had the most glorious week at this villa. From the moment you walk into the place it has such a lovely outlook. It is really spotless and spacious and the view of the ocean on your doorstep is just breath taking. It has absolutely everything you require, the pool and hot hub were just brilliant. The villa is in such a beautiful location, blissfully peaceful and the veranda has so many different tables and chairs it is great to see different views at a different angle. Walking or riding the bikes provided was so easy to the shop or along the promenade. Had the best sleep with the sound of the crashing waves. Brilliant property !!!

Upon arrival you instantly get the "wow" factor. Fantastic views, spacious and well decorated with welcome food package. The weather was balmy and you could feel the humidity all around.... more
I am both saddened and upset by the review submitted on 7th November. I'm sad because this lady didn't enjoy her holiday and upset because she hasn't stated all the facts.
