Lovely villa my family and I had a great time. Villa had all the things you needed to make it a home from home. Pool was great was nice and warm. Only issue was the wifi was very hit and miss which meant we had to buy data on phones. But would recommended this villa.
This was our second stay in Casa Verano and again we had a fabulous time.The villa is perfectly placed,its nice and peaceful and only 10 minutes walk from the town and sea front.
I can't recommend this villa enough and will definitely be back.
What a beautiful villa. We actually visited at a time when owners Alan and Hazel were in the UK, but that didn't make any difference to the 'home away from home' feel that they have provided with their Lanzarote villa.
Yes, the residential area initially feels like a maze on first arrival, and it didn't help getting lost in the dark on the shortcut back from town (despite using Alan's excellent maps on both occasions). Yet oddly, by day two, we felt at home and wondered how on earth we got lost on either occasion as the road layout is perfectly simple, with or without a map.
We had hired a car and travelled across the entire island. There is adequate parking just next to the owners other villa, Villa Primera. The evening walk to town took about 10 minutes, and a further 10 beautifully scenic minutes to the marina, should you wish to go. For those lazy nights where you just can't be bothered to walk back home, it costs €4 in a cab.
The pool is so beautifully warm all day long, and the entire pool area and waterfall are stunning and relaxing. Yes ok, the pool cover is a small nuisance to move due to its size (and an ornate volcanic rock in the way) but so totally worth the tiny effort just to keep the beautiful temperature. The neighbours appeared quiet and nothing disturbed our peace; not even a very excitable little boy holidaying in a close by villa.
Alan and Hazel have been a delight right through from booking, to our return home. This was the first time I had booked a private villa abroad, and Alan most definitely eased the anxiety I had handing money over to a complete stranger. Anyone else with these fears must definitely not worry in the slightest. A truly professional yet personal service.
Would definitely recommend a holiday in this villa. Hopefully one day, we shall return.....
We highly recommend Casa Verano. My husband and I and our 5 year old son stayed for a week in March 2016. The location of the villa is very peaceful. The garden and pool area are large, secluded and well maintained. Views of the mountains and sea in the distance. The villa is well equipped. The beds and sofa were new and very comfortable. Internet access was excellent during our stay. The PlayStation did not work for us. Playa Blanca, with its many shops, restaurants and sandy beach, is a 5 minute drive. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing villa holiday with a beautiful private pool, set in a well maintained cactus garden, we highly recommend villa Casa Verano.

We stayed at PRIMERA as work was being done on Verano but they are next door to each other.
From the moment we arrived Hazel and Alan were great. They made us so welcome, making us sandwiches and pouring us a glass of wine before leaving us to settle in and feed our 6 month old baby. They came back later to show us the shops and the way around town. They could not do enough for us. They were always thinking about how to make the holiday excellent. Little things like bringing round a paddling pool and giant bean bag for our baby were so useful!
The villa itself was lovely. It's the first time we've stayed in a villa which already had some basic supplies in for us to use (tea towels, washing up liquid,tea,coffee etc.) which makes it so much easier so you don't have to buy too many basics whilst there.
The pool was great and we thoroughly enjoyed playing in it everyday. Having sun loungers around the pool was brilliant and there was plenty of shade for the little one. The waterfall feature is lovely, so much nicer than a plain rectangular pool with no feature!
The bbq was good and we used it quite a lot.
The location of the villa is just out of town. The walk in to town doesn't take long, however it is quite gravely so with a pushchair, was not easy in areas. But it was fine and we still walked in to town a lot. It's also easy to drive in, although parking in town is not that easy. We drove to Playa Dorada beach and there was plenty of parking there, or it's about a 30 minute walk.
The villa was great and I would definitely recommend. We will definitely return to it ourselves!
This was our third stay in this or the next door property belonging to the same owners. The villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and is very comfortably furnished. We enjoyed the heated pool and all the outdoor space around it and having access to British TV was a bonus for the evenings. The property had some refurbishment last year and now has one bedroom, plus a sofa bed in the lounge and a smart, new kitchen.
Just stayed for a fab week at this recently refurbished villa. Alan and Hazel were there to meet us took us shopping to save the carrying. Cannot recommend this enough we'll definitely be back xx
