This is a Beautiful villa in a lovely setting next to Montana Roja. It is in relaxing and quite location away from the hustle and bustle but yet only a 35 minute walk to playa blanca. The Villa itself is spacious and modern. There was 2 familys of us a total of 10 guests using this villa for nearly 3 weeks and we had loads of space. On arrival we got a welcome back which will keep you going until you can get to the shops and i have to say this was a very nice touch to the start of our stay in Patricks Villa.The beds where very comfortable and clean. We had 3 big bathrooms, 2 of of which where ensuites. The kitchen is a good size with everything you need for daily cooking if you wish to eat in. The dining room / sitting room was also big enough to seat us all. Going to the outside area there is a lovely seating area with a large rattan glass top table and seating for 8 where you can relax in the shade. There was plenty of space around the pool area for all 10 of us. On the far side of the pool there was a large built in bbq which was great. We hired out 2 cars for our stay but this is not a must have as There is a bus stop around the corner which can bring you to the town area or bus station and there is a taxi rank about 7 minutes walk around the corner from the villa. But i would recommend a car if you are doing alot of bbqs as there isnt a great selection of places to get fresh meat in Playa Blanca so we drove to lidl in Puerto Del Carmen and the European warehouse in Playa Honda for all our shopping.The reason i only gave 4 out of 5 is because we had a few issues during our stay which i will explain below but by no means is this any reason to avoid this lovely villa. We had issues with one of our toilets been blocked for about 3 days so we could not use it. We reported this to Tony and Tina in the maintenance company and informed Patrick via email and they sent out a plumber straight away who informed us on inspection that the septic tank was full and it had to be drained by the waste company( this is fairly normal for Lanzarote) so as a result we had to wait for this company to come out which took 2 or 3 days but it was sorted and everything went back to normal. We had a few issues with the pool but again as soon as we got onto Tony and Tina they sent out Phil the pool maintenance man and he sorted it. We would no sooner be after coming off the phone to them and he would be there. What a great service. The other issue we had was with the wifi. If you have been to Lanzarote before you will understand that the wifi is not great here. But we where without it for about 9 days but again it was sorted and a new better system was put in. The lighting outside is not the best at night with no lighting by the bbq area but when we mentioned this they offered to put in more lighting for us but we did not want them to go to the trouble while we where there. Now been the owner of an apartment in Lanzarote myself i can fully understand how frustrating it can be to organise repairs etc when you are not in the country yourself but i have to say Patrick the owner done evrything he could and more to please us and he has an outstanding maintenance company (Tony & Tina of Total Cleaning) in place who are always there to help and answer any questions. All in all it was a great holiday in Patricks villa. Thanks again Patrick.
We have just returned from a week in Patricks Villa after bringing in the New Year in sunny Playa Blanca. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend the Villa to anyone.
We travelled with our Daughter, her partner and our two grandchildren age 6 and 3. The kids had never travelled abroad before and they had a ball.
The villa is huge and the pictures online do not do it justice, it is lovely both inside and out. The heated pool was used every day and we ate breakfast and lunch at the large outdoor dining area. We had 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and the villa could have easily accommodated 8 adults. It had everything we needed and more and we were very grateful for the welcome pack.
We were around 20 mins walk away from the centre but found the local taxi service great. We called the taxi and by the time we had walked round the corner to the security gate they were waiting for us and it only cost 3 to 4 euros to go to the Centre which we did everyday. Playa Blanca has lots of lovely restaurants and bars and everywhere was family friendly.
The weather was really warm and sunny and we took for advantage of the outside area of the villa which was very private and in our opinion the nicest villa in the development (we had a walk around and most were over looked from the road) .
The booking process and the communication with Patrick was excellent and we spoke to Tony on our last day to make arrangements to leave. We will definitely will be returning.

I stayed with friends end of May for two weeks and just loved the villa. It was huge 3 bathrooms so never a queue for the shower. The villa had everything that you needed, kitchen had all utensils, kitchen was so spacious plenty of cupboard space. Most of the time was spent outside and the Pool was heated which was a bonus as most people we spoke to had cold pools. The welcome pack was a nice touch and came in handy as we arrived late and could make a little snack before bed. The location was not bad, there is a mini supermarket attached to the nearby Hotel. We used the hyperdino supermarket (so cheap ) in the centre €3.50 in taxi. I would recommend the Tipico Canario restaurant on beach front, next to the Chinese lovely meal. I would stay here again, nice, peaceful, lots of space good location.
We found this villa absolutely perfect for us. It is a little out of the centre but if you get fed up walking the taxis are cheap. would definitely stay again.
We have stayed in the villa 3 times now, the latest in September 2013. It's well placed in a private completed estate, close to the beach and a 15 minute walk to Playa Blanca centre with lovely restaurants and pubs. The villa is well equiped, modern and clean, with 4 bedrooms (2 en suite) and 3 of them opening on to the pool area. There's a putting green to use if it's too hot and a heated pool for spring or autumn visits. We're looking forward to getting back there this autumn.
