Gorgeous Villa in Puerto del Carmen. Sleeps up to 6, two bedroom two bathroom villa centrally located on the flat less than 200m from the strip/sea/shops/restaurants. The villa has free Wifi throughout and a 43" flat screen smart TV with a satellite TV box which has all the popular UK and Irish channels...BBC1 & 2, UTV, Channel 4, RTE 1 & 2, TV3 etc. and hundreds more including all The Sky Sports channels....for Premier League matches, Sky Movies and hundreds of the latest box sets and films.
Villa Mar commands an enviable position within a highly sought after and prestigious complex as the property is not overlooked by any other, yet has gorgeous direct views of the heated swimming pools and tropical gardens from both of the villa's large sunny terraces. Due to their east and west orientation our spacious terraces are sun traps as they share the sun throughout the day from early morning to late evening. Both terraces have very comfortable sun loungers and shaded dining areas to take full advantage of the sun whether sunbathing in private, dining or having a relaxing drink outdoors.
All the properties are privately owned there is never an issue with availability of sun loungers, noise or poor standards often associated with tourist accommodation as the complex is a haven of tranquillity both day and night.
As the villa is bungalow style with no steps or stairs and has very spacious terraces it is suitable for all.........including guests with restricted mobility or wheelchair users......its user friendliness further enhanced with the addition of grab rails and extra large showers in the both en suites.
The villa has recently been upgraded to a very high standard but still retains a comfortable and cosy 'home from home' feel.

The Lanzarote Region
Puerto del Carmen is the main tourist town on the island of Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain. Most of Lanzarote's over 1 million visitors per year choose this town as their destination. It attracts tourists from all over Europe, particularly Ireland, the UK and Germany as well as from Scandinavia and Spain. The Avenida de las Playas, the main street/avenue in the town, extends some 7 km along the island's southern coast, with beaches on one side and many restaurants, bars, shops and other tourist attractions on the other. The quaint and peaceful old town includes the harbour and docks, the Puerto Tinosa. Here there are a smaller variety of restaurants and bars with views across the harbour and the sea to the volcanic mountains of Papagayo beyond to views of the next island of Fuerteventura. The majority of the locals are friendly and are ready to help.
The beautiful sandy beaches and clear blue water are ideal for sunbathing and swimming all year round. Puerto del Carmen is highly recommended as safe and suitable for young and old alike. The protected southerly situation shelters it from the prevailing winds on the North and East side of the island. When the sun goes down, the beachfront livens up and there is a great selection of good quality restaurants, bars and discos later on.

A quiet, very clean, homely villa in a quiet complex ideal for anyone
5/5 Stayed July 2018
Graeme W.West Horsley
Fantastic communications with the owner. Easy instructions to follow and great access. Villa looks brand new inside and once the tv had been worked out my daughter was happy for her early mornings. The complex is quiet and ideally located to everything PDC has to offer and just a 2 minute walk to a fairly quiet beach and local Spar supermarket. Also has a heated swimming pool on site.
Highly recommended and 100% will be back. Absolutely loved our stay.

Property was spotless and a real home from home
5/5 Stayed June 2018
Excellent value for money, excellent location, tranquil and chilled out holiday, the Villa has everything you need and everything was tastefully decorated and laid out, I would love to stay here again, but because it’s so good it’s pretty much booked up for the next 12 months 😀. It is so nice to stay at a property that exceeds your expectations. Interaction with the owner Marissa was very warm and welcoming. Will keep checking the booking site for future stays and definitely will look to book again
