The nearest beach, Playa Flamingo, is about 3.5 kms away. Playa Blanca has three beaches, a small one right on the centre sea front with the other two (Playa Flamingo and Playa Dorado) a short distance away. A little way out of Playa Blanca there are the six beautiful Papagayo beaches which are 15 minutes drive from the villa. There is plenty of opportunity for safe swimming and snorkelling. Diving and water sports are also possible.
TRAVEL - Arrecife airport is 35 minutes drive from Casa Luisa, we will send you instructions telling you how to get to the villa. The use of a hire car is recommended as there is so much to see on Lanzarote and the roads are excellent to drive on. We would recommend hiring a car from the airport and can suggest a car hire company if you wish. For travel into Playa Blanca, which is 5km away, you can catch the local bus or use a taxi which will cost €5-7.
A Villa that delivery's thing and More!
By Stuart on 03-Jul-2019
This has to be one of the best villas we have ever stayed in, it delivers on quality, luxury and facilities, whether it's the wonderful pool and gardens, the luxurious sunbeds or even down to the TV and soundbar, it has it all, with the added bonus of high walls, not just for privacy but to combat against the wind Lanzarote can experience, just a shame it had to end.
By Alison Street on 31-Jul-2018
We have just returned from an 11 night stay at this fabulous villa. We really didn't want to leave. There is everything here that you could possibly need on a self catering holiday and much more besides. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The quality of the furnishings and attention to detail made this holiday for us. The heated pool was fab and cleaned twice during our stay. Bedding and towels were also changed too. We loved the outside terrace and BBQ area. My only complaint would be that I never booked for longer! It is honestly the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The villa is in a secured gated complex and in a great location with shops, lovely bars and restaurants a few minutes walk. You can also catch the number 30 bus there for 1.50 euro into anywhere in Playa Blanca, although the coastal walk is beautiful and we will miss the view so much. The drive from the airport is easy and around 35 minutes. All the communication from booking to arrival, local information and directions given by the owners was very helpful and appreciated too. We will definitely return to this Villa and we cannot thank Russell & Sue enough.
Best Villa in Playa Blanca
By Steve And Lorraine Partington on 16-Apr-2018
We’ve just returned home from a very relaxing fortnight in Casa Luisa. Over the years we’ve stayed in numerous villas in the Playa Blanca area and this one gets our vote as the best yet! Indoors there’s everything you could need and all maintained to a very high standard. It’s the outside space though that makes Casa Luisa special, as the terrace and pool area are so well protected from the Lanzarote wind that you can sit out or sunbathe no matter what the wind strength.
Location is great too as there are local shops and restaurants a five minute walk away, more places to eat a twenty minute walk away and a ten minute drive will get you into the centre of Playa Blanca. We’d definitely recommend this place and we’ll be back at some point in the future.
By Matt And Lucy Abrahams on 13-Oct-2017
We stayed at this fantastic villa in mid October 2017 and had a great time. We have stayed in many holiday homes over the years including many in Playa Blanca. We both agreed that this is probably the best we have stayed in anywhere. The villa is well equipped with everything we needed and more. The layout with the enclosed outdoor space housing the BBQ is great. It is no surprise to anyone who has visited Lanzarote that it can be windy, in this villa it doesn’t matter you can still spend your evenings outside. The best part about this villa was the cleanliness. It was spotless on arrival and clearly very well looked after. Overall this is a great place to stay and we will be back for sure.

I beautiful villa maintained to a High Standard
By Louise B on 24-Mar-2017
An immaculately maintained villa, heated pool and garden with every amenity provided. My family and I had a wonderful holiday in this home from home beautiful villa and we will be returning again soon.
Owner's Response: Another great review. My wife and I work hard at making this villa one of the best and reviews like this are very rewarding for us. This year (2017) we are planning to create a pergola extension and glassed in area around the terrace along with a new barbecue.
Everything you need for an wonderful holiday
By Heather S on 05-Dec-2016
We visited Casa Luisa for a week at the end of November 2016 to celebrate my 50th birthday. As it was a special occasion we were looking for something with a good specification and we weren't disappointed. The Villa looked very impressive in the photographs and so it proved to be. All areas of the villa were spotlessly clean on arrival and the property radiates a warmth that makes you feel at home straight away.
Internally the villa is very well equipped for a self catering holiday. As mentioned in many reviews, the Sky service and wifi are fast and reliable. While TV and internet arent the most important issues for us, its nice to be able to keep in touch if you need to. We could not fault the furnishings or decor in any way.
Outside the gardens are really attractive and well maintained. The heated pool was very pleasant and as mentioned elsewhere, the high walls mean the garden is very private.
We holiday in Playa Blanca at least once a year, usually in Autumn or Winter. We always choose properties with a fully enclosed dining area as the evenings can be cool. I think the dining / sun room at Casa Luisa was our favourite area in the villa. Its a lovely place to eat or relax on a evening.
La Carabela is only a short walk from the shops and restaurants on Faro Park. A gate gives easy access so there's no need to drive on a evening.
Overall we enjoyed our holiday immensely and I wouldn't be afraid to recommend the villa to anyone. We would certainly like to return in future.
Owner's Response: WOW what a great review, it makes all of our hard work very worth while. The comment about the local shops and the easy access to them should be helpful to others reading the review.
Great villa, super location
By Mitch & Tracy T on 06-Sep-2015
We had a superb fortnight staying at the villa. It is ideally located within a five minute walk to a number of local restaurants, bars and supermarkets. We are locally a few times but mostly drove into Playa Blanca to eat but did head back for a drink or two at a local bar.
Directions to the villa were concise and easy to follow. The villa itself was really comfortable, nicely furnished. We used the wi fi a lot, which I add was fast and very reliable. The boys enjoyed watching tv early evening too. The heated pool was great, we would spend the mornings at the beautiful beach of Playa Dorada, parking is located near to the Hotel Playa Dorada; and enjoy lazy afternoons in the pool.
We visited the local water park, Aqua Lava, which was ideal for our boys aged 12 and 8. A trip around the Island was interesting, we visited a surfers bay and a number of fishing coves. Also a visit to the national park is very worthwhile, a tip here, go around 2pm when the morning coach trips have gone. We had no wait and the views here are spectacular.
We ate at a number of restaurants, both in Playa Blanca and locally and all were very good.
The island is lovely and has a "laid back" feel, we loved it and will most definitely return, booking this villa again. The owners, Russell and Sue, are so helpful and have a really lovely villa.
We would, and already have done so, recommend the villa to friends and family.
Tracy and Mitch
