Stayed at this villa for a week for my wifes and daughters joint birthday celebrations and had the most amazing time. The villa is huge with a great location with a short walk to beaches and restaurants or 2 minute ride in a taxi. The villa has a lovely heated pool and the kitchen and living areas are lovely and spacious. Definitely recommend for large parties in a nice and quiet area of playa blanca.
Our party consisted of 8 adults and one two year old. The villa was more than large enough for our party. The different levels of the inside layout and the three levels outside ensured some privacy. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms well furnished. The pool, barbecue and jacuzzi were very popular with the party. There were enough sun beds for everyone and a pool and table tennis table. The villa was immaculately clean.
Stayed at same villa 3 years ago and had a great time. This time couldn’t get into villa when we arrived (no prior communication) and were put up in another villa overnight. Were told this was because of problems with previous tenants causing damage to Casa Kathie which was being rectified. Moved to Casa Kathie next day but it really wasn’t up to expected standards. No cooking facilities (not great when we had an infant in the party) and the villa bore no relation to the pictures on the web site. By mid-afternoon we were experiencing power cuts every few minutes and eventually had no pool heating or hot tub. The management team were not much help and when we eventually heard from owner he was rude and aggressive (not a picture painted by other reviewers). However, he eventually agreed to find us another villa (which he paid for) and which we moved to on day 4. This villa, owned and run by a separate company, was great and the second half of our holiday was excellent. However, first half was ruined by a villa the didn’t come close to what it should have been and by packing up the family and moving villas 3 times in 4 days – not great on a week long holiday. Never got the full story on what had happened at Casa Kathie but, regardless of what the issue were, it wasn’t dealt with effectively at the time and ruined our holiday.
First off I want to say a huge thank you to Kathy for making the whole booking process an easy and enjoyable experience. The villa was amazing, we couldn't ask for anything more, we were amazed at how modern, spacious, airy and clean the villa was. It had all appliances, kitchen utensils, towels etc, we didn't want for anything. All the facilities were fab, the games room was used regularly and the pool we used everyday and this was also cleaned and checked regularly along with the jacuzzi. There is so much space that as a large group we were able to spread out, we didn't feel cramped at all. The villa is situated in a quiet area with a very nice view of the mountains. Local supermarket is about a 20 minute slow walk, and is well stocked. Restaurants and beach are about 25-30 minute slow walk. You can get a taxi for under 3 euros, but to be fare we always enjoyed the walk in the evening. So many good eateries around and food is so cheap. Days out, rancho Texas is a must and the tour of the mountains, winery and villages also camel ride is a must too, we had so much fun. This holiday has been by far the best, from the ease of booking to getting around, the beautiful scenery and lovely friendly people. I would definitely recommend and I would definitely return with my family. Thanks again Kathy, it was a pleasure to stay at your villa, and hope to return again in the future. 10 out of 10 and then some.
Myself and 4 friends had a great time here in March. Pool was perfect temperature, hot tub with a view to die for and thus spent many evenings in and out of it. The kitchen/dining area was huge and made communal cooking/eating really easy and whilst we didn't really use it, the lounge also a great size. The downstairs bedroom that led out to the sunken garden area was as large as my house. . Overall, would recommend and stay again. A great value base for a group/family holiday. Still miss it!
Firstly I would like to mention how understanding and professional Katherine was with regards to our booking. Unfortunately due to personal reasons we had to cancel. We really appreciate her returning our money which she didn't have to do. We will be booking in 2018 to go away and thought we would like to say thank you for being so understanding.
This was our 3rd time visiting Lanzarote and the 2nd stay at Casa Kathy, a perfect location, perfect villa for just 2 of you or for up to 10! We love the space and the flexibility that the villa offers - having 2 lounges means that when you have your teenagers or your friends with you, you can still have your own space.
Beautiful views and a fab pool and jacuzzi makes it ideal!
We love it so much we are going back again!
