What a perfect cottage for a break away by the sea. Everything you need is here.
The location could not have been better. The locals are super friendly and the sunset in the mornings is well worth getting up for.
All covid regulations were adhered to at all times.
We will certainly be back. We are feeling relaxed and refreshed. Thank you Amanda . Xxx

We have just returned from our fourth fabulous holiday with LVD , Casa Albarino was as expected totally fabulous , what a villa ! Everything that you could possibly need was provided and really good sanitising practices in place , all thanks to Mand and Kate , very very generous welcome pack provided and the pool was first class , thank you so much girls .
I decided to have a few medical issues whilst there, first one was tooth ache , I managed to get a dentist appointment the same day at the London Dental clinic , unheard of in the UK , my problem was sorted that day , unbelievable , all with the help and guidance from Kate .
We felt totally safe in Lanzarote , far safer than the UK , every shop. Restaurant or attractions that we visited followed strict safety procedures , everyone wore masks , perhaps this is why their covid numbers are so low , people do observe the rules over there and rightly so it was good to see how responsible they are , and all happy as well.
If you can self isolate after a trip there please do think about supporting LVD and all the workers on the rest of the island , fantastic little businesses like this that have gone above and beyond to make our holidays fabulous deserve and need our support ,who wants to sit another dreary winter here when you could be in Lanzarote.
WE ARE SAFER IN LANZAROTE.
When we landed at Liverpool airport ,all 15 of us no one asked us for our forms that we had to fill in to travel , they did in Lanzarote and took our temperature as well , they couldn’t care less in the UK but then the only things your bringing home is a tan and wonderful memories .
Just like to say again a massive thank you to Mand and Kate ,you are a pair of angels and please support them through this pandemic .

Great vacation in a great place.
Very warm thanks to the owners of this beautiful villa who did everything to ensure that our stay went smoothly, but also for their little attentions concerning the reason for our stay (both our 50th birthday). I am used to renting my vacations on this site and this is the first time I have come across such caring people. The villa is clean, functional, well organized, quiet, and the heated swimming pool very appreciable. The small lunch basket for the first day is also a big plus, because you don’t necessarily have time to shop when you leave the airport. A big big thank you so and see you next time I hope.
Vacances formidables dans un lieu formidable.
Remerciements très chaleureux aux propriétaires de cette belle villa qui ont tout fait pour que notre séjour se déroule sans accroc, mais aussi pour leurs petites attentions concernant la raison de notre séjour (nos 50 ans à tous les deux). J’ai l’habitude de louer mes vacances sur ce site et c’est la première fois que je tombe sur des personnes aussi attentionnées. La villa est propre, fonctionnelle, bien organisée, au calme, et la piscine chauffée très appréciable. Le petit panier repas du premier jour est aussi un gros plus, car l’on n’a pas forcément le temps de faire les courses à la sortie de l’aéroport. Un grand grand merci donc et à une prochaine fois je l’espère.

First time staying at Galles, due to extending our holiday. First-class villa allowing perfect relaxation; immaculately presented with all the necessary facilities. Terrific position giving extensive views over the island, aided by three sun terraces. This was our 9th visit, and I suspect that this Villa will be first choice if and when we return for visit number 10!
From Malcolm Menard, who stayed in Casa Galles on July 20, 2020
Amanda is a great host and we loved the casita! It’s worth noting that Amanda was very flexible and understanding when we had to change the dates of our arrival and departure due to covid travel restrictions. During our stay, Amanda was always available to accommodate our all our needs, going above and beyond. If you are a couple, friends or a family, the casita is a great place to stay in. It has everything one needs for a comfortable stay (eg. washing machine, oven, microwave, toaster, hairdryer, smart TV, stereo, BBQ, sun umbrella) and an unbeatable view! Having breakfasts on a terrace with an ocean view that is literally a few steps away has been the most unforgettable experience for us. On a separate note, we had to work remotely a little bit and the internet connection was fast and stable. The casita is extremely well located with a private parking space, a friendly and quiet neighbourhood with natural pools just 5 min walk away (they are another fantastic cultural and relaxation spots in Lanzarote (it’s difficult not to fall in love with them, especially if you are a morning swim lover), and Arrieta with its wonderful beach and plenty of great restaurants is only a 15-20 min stroll away or 3 min by car. When we come back again we will definitely stay at Amanda’s. Highly recommend the place to everyone who is looking for a quiet and relaxing stay in Lanzarote!
From Noelia, who stayed in Tres Palmeras on August 9, 2020
We would like to thank you very much for the fantastic stay we had in Tres Palmeras. It really felt like home. Everything needed is there – comfortable beds, soft towels and spotlessly clean!!
We were happily suprised by the welcome groceries. We felt so welcome and we enjoyed the view! The main reason for us to book this casita was that it is so close to the ocean, the possibility to see the sun rise from the ocean in the morning and have sun around all day. it met all our criteria.
We spent hours on the terrace. Whenever we come to Lanzarote in the future we will consider the casita again.
From Fiona Copinger, who stayed in Tres Palmeras on January 3, 2020
wow wow wow!
We have stayed in nearly all of the LVD villas (they are all such fabulous properties that we want to try each one!!) and our latest holiday was in Casa Luca.
As I say all the villas are amazing but this one has to be our favourite so far. The views are stunning, the layout, design and decor of the villa, the attention to detail in every aspect and just the “feel” you get when you walk in…….
Hence us rebooking later this year!
Thanks again to Amanda and Kate and the LVD team for yet another perfect holiday.
From Tracy Mackenzie, who stayed in Casa Luca on December 2, 2019
We went to Villa Shibui in August this year – the villa has everything that anyone could possibly want and more. The outside area was secluded and private and yet had the most lovely views across the island. The inside was lovely and clean on arrival and had everything that we needed. The welcome pack was much appreciated and included something for everyone. The air-conditioning in the bedrooms gave a lovely relief from the heat outside. WIFI and television was so much better than we had expected, with every channel that anyone could possibly want. We hired a car and explored the island – there is a small shop at the bottom of the hill but it is a bit of a hike back up! But it is do-able. The communication from Richard and Jacqui was brilliant, even making sure everything was ok when we arrived. The correspondence on the run up to the holiday made sure everything went smoothly. All in all we cannot praise this villa enough and look forward to returning
From Jill B, who stayed in Villa Shibui on August 16, 2019
We stayed in this villa for a week and was not disappointed. It is in a quiet area, well equipped and the owners have a very informative guest book which we used on several occasions. The welcome pack was lovely, thank you, ideal until you get to the shops. The choice of books, DVDs and games was good and the TV and WiFi were excellent compared to other villas we have used. The pool area is not overlooked and has plenty of space with all day sun. Although umbrellas are provided for shade one was broken which we never reported or I’m sure would have been replaced as the owners are very helpful. We would recommend this villa and would use it again. Thank you Richard and Jacqui.
From Christine, who stayed in Villa Shibui on November 25, 2019
What a lovely place!
We wanted a relaxing pre-Christmas break. I don’t think we could have chosen a better villa. We arrived late at night or early in the morning thanks to Ryanair! The welcome pack was perfect for two tired, hungry and thirsty travellers. The villa had been decorated for Christmas. Inside- very comfortable and definitely perfect for two, probably excellent for four. Later that morning after some sleep – fabulous views over the island, to Arrecife, San Bartolome, Mozaga and La Geria. All this within a garden that is not overlooked. The owners, Richard and Jacqui, are a pleasure to deal with as are Kate and Mark who look after things locally. We are going back there in March!
From Geoff J, who stayed in Villa Shibui on December 6, 2019
We are so pleased to let you know that our holiday in your villa was the BEST we have ever had in our 40 years together. The peaceful location with those fantastic views was AMAZING. The only time we spent away from the villa during our stay was one evening meal out and two visits to the big supermarket, plus a few visits to the small supermarket at the bottom of the road. It was so tranquil that we did not want to go anywhere else. We owned an apartment in Tenerife from year 2000 to 2012, we spent many weeks there and as we grew older we found it was too noisy. We wish we had discovered Villa Shibui before now as we know we would have returned many times. However we did not so we can only plan for the future. We are thinking of booking some weeks November/December next. Finally may we thank you for your help and also the help we received from Kate & Mark. Best wishes and take care, Jim & Tricia.
From Jim and Trisha, who stayed in Villa Shibui on December 22, 2019
December 2019 our Christmas escape to the sunshine and warmth of Lanzarote and the wonderful Casita Amancer. We had been wanting to experience the Casita for some time, this being our 20th visit to Lanzarote but our first time in December. A perfect package of peacefulness, scenery, and solitude in the hills of Tabayesco. The Casita had everything we needed including a plentiful supply of bath and tea towels and fluffy bath robes! It was roomier than we anticipated which was a bonus. Took a while to work the TV but help was at hand from Jan. A car is essential here but car hire is so reasonable and there is so much to see on Lanzarote that a car is a must have anyway. Arrieta and Punta Mujeres a couple of minutes drive down the hill for Supermarkets and wonderful intimate Restaurants.
We loved our stay at Casita Amancer and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone wishing a relaxing, quiet time away from the main Lanzarote resorts. Gill & Paul “
From Gilla and Paul, who stayed in Casita Amanecer on December 28, 2019
Fabulous villa, perfect to relax and recharge batteries
From Fiona and Richard Nash, who stayed in Casa Galles on August 22, 2019
Lovely villa and what an amazing view! we´ve had a wonderful holiday and look forward to returning in the future.
From Mark, Julia, Jake and Max, who stayed in Casa Galles on August 3, 2019
We have enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing week here. Galles is such a comfortable villa and beautifully presented. Great pool, wonderful views. Thanks to all the LVD team for their help and kindness. we will return”
From Liz and Trevor Lockley, who stayed in Casa Galles on April 28, 2019
As usual great holiday courtesy of Lanzarote Villas Direct.
Villa Shibui was really good, great accommodation, complete privacy.
Thanks again to Amanda & Kate.
Looking forward to next year.
From Jenny & Tony Iles, who stayed in Villa Shibui on September 19, 2019
We absolutely loved our stay in this villa.
The garden area is lovely and secluded with a nice pool and beautiful views.
From Joanne C, who stayed in Villa Shibui on June 6, 2019
We stayed at this villa June/July for a week and had a fantastic break. We got in touch prior to booking and they answered any questions we had and provided lots of useful information for guests who would look to stay in the property about the property itself, the surrounding area and the Island, nothing seemed too much trouble. The villa is very well equipped and has everything you need for a self catering stay. The gas barbecue is fantastic meaning alfresco meals are just minutes away day or night. The bedrooms are air conditioned and were very comfortable. Outside the pool area is private and the heated pool an added bonus so no excuses for not taking a dip. The villa is located in a quiet area and our days spent outside around the pool were very peaceful and relaxing. The local mini market is a 10 minute walk and we found most items there with the exception of meats for the barbecue. There is a slightly larger shop around 30-35 minutes walk, which has a small meat counter. We did not hire a car and made several trips into Teguise, which is a 30 minute walk from the villa. There are a few bars and restaurants there. The walk itself has some relatively steep sections on road and may be a struggle for some however we enjoyed it, particularly on the way in with a pizza and beer waiting at the other end at one of the local restaurants. If you want to explore further or go to one of the larger supermarkets or are just not able to walk that far then a car rental would be recommended and again the owners will provide info on this if requested.
Overall a lovely location, a great property and fantastic owners.
From Dave M, who stayed in Villa Shibui on June 4, 2019
We had a lovely relaxing stay in villa shibui, the ownersi have gone to Great lengths to consider your needs to make this a home from home holiday.
Private gardens with stunning views very quiet area great for people who just want a relaxing holiday.
I would recommend hiring a car to get out and about Costa Teguise only being a 10-minute drive away and Teguise market only 3 minutes drive with ample parking areas at a cost of €1.80,
I would highly recommend this Villa.
Big thanks to Richard and Jacqui
From Brandon W, who stayed in Villa Shibui on July 6, 2019
This is my second time at Shibui and from the moment we arrived we were welcomed. Equally, we were informed and left undisturbed to enjoy the villa for two weeks.
Shibui has a great pool for the villa size, incredible views and a very private space. Considering It’s location in Oasis de Nazareth which is perfect for amenities and restaurants. You step out the villa door and everything is a walk, or a short drive but when you are in the villa you get a great sense of serenity and seclusion.
It has everything that you would want for four people. It’s WiFi is excellent, film selection and the cds aren’t half bad either. Not that you would need too much of this as you are in Lanzarote. Enjoyed it and recommend it highly. Sad to leave.
Thanks to Amanda and Kate and we will see you again for sure…
From Glenn, who stayed in Villa Shibui on May 6, 2019
The photos really do not do this bungalow justice. Jan and Jayne warmly welcomed us and were always on hand if we needed anything, but were not intrusive. The bungalow is very well appointed, clean and comfortable. The shower was excellent. It was a real home from home. The welcome pack was very comprehensive. The location is really peaceful, away from mass tourism and has stunning views over the valley to the sea, but it is only a 15 to 30-minute walk (depending on direction) or 5 minute drive to the town. The town has a couple of supermarkets and selection of restaurants. We loved it so much we are already planning our return trip.
From Eric & Sue, who stayed in Casita Amanecer on March 4, 2019
Casa Galles was welcoming and very nicely presented. The kitchen is well kitted out and everywhere clean and sparkling. The welcome pack carried us through till we did a shop the day after our arrival. Satisfyingly there are enough coat-hangers in the wardrobes, which is a blessing. The swimming pool is very clean and its nice to be able to step down into it and for the time of year very pleasant to use, with lovely big pool towels and comfortable sun beds to relax on. Amanda came to check all was well the day after we arrived and was very helpful. It’s a lovely situation if you want quietness, which we did, and it’s close enough to visit the little towns and villages nearby. Very much recommend the submarine trip and we did the northern tour mentioned in Amanda’s guide. All in all we had a very nice holiday on Lanzarote. Of course having the lovely sunshine helped.
From Anne and Peter, who stayed in Casa Galles on February 7, 2019
Casita Amanacer is a little gem, a home from home wonderfully situated in a quiet hillside location in sleepy Tabayesco, a short distance from Arrieta. It is a perfect place for relaxation and unwinding, not the place to go if you are looking for resort-style nightlife! We had a lovely holiday here, it is a great base for seeing the north of the island. There are local countryside walks in the valley and surrounding hills direct from your door. Cyclists will find great roads with challenging climbs aplenty.
There is a selection of restaurants in Arrieta for when you decide to eat out and we also made use of the barbeque provided at the casita.
Many thanks to Jan and her family, who are really friendly and welcoming. We had a memorable time, we will be back!
From Teresa & Jim, who stayed in Casita Amanecer on February 1, 2019
We would like to express our sincere thanks for the wonderful presentation of the villa. Attention to detail is outstanding and we have enjoyed a very relaxing week. Would like to return again at some point.
From Hayden and Janet Evans, who stayed in Casa Albariño on May 5, 2018
An absolutely stunning villa!!! Thank you for everything including our extended stay and all the help with it.
From Katie and Jay Taylor, who stayed in Casa Galles on August 21, 2018
we had a wonderful time in this fantastic villa. Special thanks to Amanda, Sarah and Lee for their helpful hospitality.

From Greg, Mel and Lucy Swallow, who stayed in Casa Galles on July 17, 2018
We have had a lovely relaxing weekand enjoyed spending time by the pool. sunsets have been amazing. First time to Casa Luca and hopefully not the last. An unexpected bonus was sky sports so we could watch the rugby with a wonderful view too!
From Peter and Jane Brown, who stayed in Casa Luca on October 27, 2018
Beautifully appointed villa – perfect home from home. We will definitely return, thank you to all at LVD

We left in good time for Manchester airport. All was well until M56. Absolute car park all the way to Manchester ! Sat nav took us to the wrong car park ! We were now panicking. Got into security which must have been at least 150 metres long. We were now desperate. Got to the gate as it was closing ! Very stressed ! Got out at Arrecife airport. Car was waiting for us . [Sorted by Amanda]. Got to Albarino . Clear roads and sunshine. Found bowl of fruit , fridge full of beer , wine , champers, cheese ham etc. Jumped into the enormous heated pool . What a villa to turn up to after a day like that. Albarino is 5 stars all the way. We can`t fault the place or the company. Aim to take the family next year.
From Ken and Carol King, who stayed in Casa Albariño on November 5, 2018
Sol Y Mar was recommended to us some years ago but we’d never stayed there until this year. We had stayed in about 8 other villas over the years and expected Sol Y Mar to be similar. How wrong we were. From opening the door it was very homely. |When we saw the view we were sold! We had a very restful holiday and yet had everything there we could want. We booked our next holiday before we left…. I can’t see us ever going to another villa now.
From Mal Beckly, who stayed in Villa Sol y Mar on September 17, 2018
Hemos estado estupendamente en la villa. Recomendable si te quieres alejar del turismo de masas del sur. Nazareth es un lugar muy tranquilo, con buen tiempo y noches más frescas que en el sur. Las vistas desde la casa son absolutamente espectaculares.
