Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
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 Canary Islands 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.'
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 !!!

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.
The week of this rental saw Lanzarote with unusually humid weather and a strong westerly wind which caused the sea spray at high tide to hit the villa. Locals referred to the weather as 'Freak weather.' When my manager arrived at the villa, the guests complained about the damp in the bedroom. He went into the master bedroom and immediately felt the sea spray on his face: the guests had left the patio doors open, so of course the bedding was going to get wet and the room become damp as a result. I believe we must always respect the elements and you don't get more frontline than Villa Riptide: it's 62 metres from the sea.
The pool heater was repaired on 26th October and heater was on from that point. I have spent a lot of money on renewing the electrical wiring at the villa and have certificates to prove this. Our wonderful Electrician, who, as the review states, did arrive immediately, had had a problem with water getting into a unit which caused the problem. It was resolved and more work is scheduled for January. I honestly don't understand the complaint about the hot tub. My managers, who I trust implicitly, said the tub was hot. Our only suspicion is that with the electrical problem, it had cooled down considerably before power was restored.
Finally, please don't accuse me of penny pinching: Guests who have returned to the villa not once, but four times with a fifth booking in place, will tell you how much we spend to maintain the villa at the standard our guests deserve. We address problems immediately with the help of our Managers, who incidentally have never been accused of bad management, and we are constantly improving the villa. We cannot however control the weather.
I know this lady was so looking forward to her holiday and apologise if she feels we have let her down in any way.

"The setting and standard of accommodation is outstanding and is the best relaxation holiday ever!"
I have stayed at the villa on two occasions with friends - the location is stunning and the sound of the sea and the sunsets are amazing - especially from the hot tub! The 10 minute walk along the front to the local amenities is breathtaking. Marina Rubicon is only a ten minute taxi journey away and has excellent restaurants. Its also worth a walk along the coastal pathway. All in all a fabulous place to go to relax. The standard of accommodation is exceptional.
