“Fantastic villa fantastic owners!”

person found this review helpful

From our initial enquiry to Rachel and John about villa caldera we have received fantastic service, even an email a day before we went to wish us a lovely time!
The villa is absoloutly beautiful literally home from home, decorated tastefully and had everything we needed.
Pool area is fantastic we had the sun from very early morning through to late evening unlike other neighbouring property's villa caldera is south facing and enjoys the sun all day long :)
All in all we all had a wonderful time and have already booked for next year!
DO NOT hesitating in booking you will not be disappointed.

“Just What We Needed”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

From contacting Rachel from the start of our interest in the villa she was so helpful. The information she provided via emails and in the villa gave us all we needed to find our way around the area .Rachel also helped with transfers to villa. We did not require the service of the villa managers but our towels were changed as stated and the pool was cleaned twice all people were friendly did there jobs and left us to enjoy our stay. The neighbours gave us a wave as they passed by. The villa was private, well decorated and comfortable. The pool was lovely to cool down in during the hot weather . Location although a little bit away from Playa Blanca it was easy to reach by taxi or bus. Walk along the promenade to the Marina area which is lovely just to sit sipping a wee drink and people watch. Further along is Playa Blanca , busier with more shops and places to eat , lots to choose from. We chose to eat in most of time as the supermarkets nearby provided all you needed. Our group was my husband, brother in law and sister in law and we all loved our break away from work it was just what we needed. It was our first visit to Lanzarote but would not hesitate to return to Villa Caldera .

“A little winter sun with a new baby”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed at Villa Caldera in January 2013. Oh no what have we done? Going on holiday with an 8 month baby? He’s just started crawling – what will it be like?
So, we were a little anxious of our first trip abroad with our precious new born cargo. Thankfully there was no need to be anxious about anything else to do with this adventure. I knew we had to just get through the humungous day of travelling and just get there. The rest of the holiday would be fine. The experience as a whole was just that – all fine, even the weather.
When you wake up at Villa Caldera for the first time you can’t quite believe it. Shall we have breakfast in the lounge, by the pool, on the patio or in the courtyard? Hmm, I think I’ll have mine on a lilo in the heated pool please. Bliss. The heated pool I mean, I never was allowed to eat my breakfast in the pool. Probably ruin my cornflakes anyhow. Our days were spent in all corners of the vast outside space chasing the rays like sunflowers. Lighting the Barbie late afternoon and putting Harvey down at sunset. His travel cot was supplied in kit form, which was a doddle to put up and even matched up to Harvey’s occasional thrashing of arms and legs.
From the initial inquiry, all our questions were quickly answered via email regarding location, amenities and other baby related stuff. Rachel was extremely helpful with our requirements. To read about all the details about the Villa beforehand is one thing, to find out when you get there that they exceed your expectation is another.
The location is sublime. It’s tucked away perfectly from the Atlantic wind, busy roads and people. The local supermarket is completely ideal with pretty much everything you would need for a 2 week holiday. It even sold HP sauce! Not that I bought any.
If you like to go for a stroll – may be to get the baby asleep or simply to stretch the legs, there is a lovely coastal path that takes you into Playa Blanca past the Marina and beyond. Just the ticket – all flat for prams / older legs.
If you’re feeling more adventurous you could go for a morning run along the rugged coastal path in the opposite direction. The 2km hike comes with a great reward – a beautiful unspoilt beach of Mujares Beach. Catch it early and you could set the first footprints of the day.
The Villa itself is very comfortable and has everything you’d find at home. Watching Sky News about all the bad weather at home does make you feel a little smug. Throwing the doors open in the main bedroom and eying up the pool for a swim is cool. Having a decent oven in a holiday home on those rainy days – well, rainy day, makes a big difference.
So, don’t hesitate. Book it. Book it now.

“Pre Christmas Heaven”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We have been to Playa Blanca before and we all love it but this Villa was perfect. The pool was safe and fabulous and there was a spacious area around it. The villa itself had plenty room for us ( 2 adults and 2 lively boys aged 10 & 8) and could have housed more. It was easy to maintain and very well equipped. In fact, almost uniquely for us on holiday, we mostly ate in because the food in the local supermarket was fresh and varied and the ambience of the villa was so perfect. The DVD player and satellite tv were appreciated by the boys.
The location was fantastic. It was a bit further out of Playa Blanca than we've been before but the resort is developing in a very distinguished way and there was much to do in the immediate area as well as going into Marina Rubicon or Playa Blanca.
The seafront is simply amazing and a real asset for runners. I saw some quite amazing sunrises on my morning runs - no wonder there are so many viewing spots. Papagayo beaches are extremely close and fabulous too - very secluded. There are plenty of places to stop if you want a leisurely walk along the prom, including a Burger King outlet with a view of Fuerteventura that is postcard perfect!
For those with young children, turn left at the prom (rather than right towards Playa Blanca) and in about 1000m you come to a very well equipped children's playground (next to a cafe, so perfect for Mum and Dad too).
We only had one day out of the area and it's the truly essential one: Timanfaya + camel riding. Both highly recommended. You pass the latter on the way to the former and the whole lot was 48 Euro for a family of 4.
We hired a car having worked out previously that the airport transfers + one or two excursions worked out cheaper this way. Driving is fine and this villa has excellent offroad parking.
We will certainly be back in Playa Blanca in 2013 (in fact, we've already booked flights) and would hope to be able to stay in such a fabulous villa once again. Just lie back and enjoy the sunshine!

“Home from home with added luxury.”
Reviewed 18 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

This was the first time we had taken our break using a rental villa and I must say package holidays never again. As a private couple the Villa Caldera was no less than perfect for us. Set in a tranquil surroundings the facilities at the Villa were fantastic with many condiments and extras as well as a much appreciated welcome pack of the necessities on our arrival. Rachel's representatives Mike and Linda were very accommodating but left us to our own devises meaning we got the privacy we craved. The villa is not overlooked even in the outdoor areas meaning the Villa Caldera pool was truly private and very well maintained. A short and beautiful coastline walk boasting amazing vistas takes you to the stunning Marina Rubican with several bars and Restaurants then a little further on to the heart of Playa Blanca and all it has to offer. A well stocked and fresh food store is very near by. There is also an excellent bus service 2 mins walk from the Villa to Playa Blanca runs every 30 mins for a mere €1.30. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable break at Villa Caldera that we will definitely be repeating in the very near future.
