Good location on the outskirts of town which means it’s nice and quiet, but only a 15 minute walk to the seafront, shops and restaurants. The neighbourhood feels relaxed, friendly and safe. The villa is very well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was nice to have air con in the bedrooms and the pool is a good temperature. The outside area is very spacious, nicely designed and gets the sun until late in the evening.
An advantage of the villa is the owners live close by so when we had a problem with the kettle they were there within a couple of hours to replace it. The owners are lovely and very accommodating and all communication has been fast. We’ll definitely visit again!
The location is only 20 minute walk from Playa Blanca town, although walking in 31 degree heat it seemed longer. But we did get taxi back which was only €4/5
A good idea to taxi for supermaket too, so you could get enough shopping for a week.
Villa very clean (cleaners also came in once during our 11 night stay) lovely to have own pool, plenty of space for 4 people. Children loved pool - shame internet not great for tv in evenings, although we did find some films to watch
There is a lot to like about this villa. From first contact, through the booking process and response times (very quick however minor the query) to the helpfulness of Joanne and Kevin.
The villa is spacious and very clean. There were one or two things that weren't - some of the pans and the knives in the block, but this was all in the whole villa. It is well equipped and there is a basic welcome pack and if you stay for two weeks there is an efficient mid stay clean. As we arrived late we asked for an additional small shop and this was readily agreed.
The white goods were very clean and worked well.
The outdoor area is particularly good, large and well-maintained, with a covered seating area, heated pool with cover and a small sundeck which we didn't use as the ground floor space was all we needed. The patio furniture is past its best and needs replacing.
We think replacing the shower screen in the ensuite bathroom is necessary. It has been replaced by a shower curtain and they just don't work for us.
The villa is situated in a quiet suburb but is on a large residential estate and neighbours are close. We were fortunate that during our fortnight stay we had only one set of neighbours - a couple who stayed just over a week. For the last few days of our stay we could hear a noisy family obviously enjoying their garden and pool. Thankfully they were far enough away for the noise to be faint but had they been nearer it would have impacted on our enjoyment. Many of the villas appeared to be holiday homes so I think it is probably luck as to whether you have peace and tranquility as we did or noise from neighbours. I would say this isn't just the case for Villa Rohan. We noticed this closeness on large estates was the norm.
We hired a car and found it very useful. the walk into town is for those who are fitter and younger than us. Parking everywhere was free, though the town does get busy and parking at night to go to restaurants in town can be difficult. The car allowed us the freedom to sample restaurants further afield with the benefit of easier parking. I understand taxis are cheap and easy, though we were advised to call one when we were ready and to be outside waiting as they take no time to arrive and will not wait.
The villa gate way to the drive is particularly narrow and even our small rental car barely fitted. We found parking on the road a much better option.
Playa Blanca is a pleasant tourist town with plenty of restaurants and a lovely long promenade. It is close to all the main attractions as the island is small and easy to get around.
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Rohan and would recommend it. We looked at others, of course, but were glad we chose this one.
We stayed at Villa Rohan for a few nights in January. It was very clean and spacious. It has the space of a 3 bedroom villa, with a lovely pool and large outside area. The kitchen is well equipped and even has kids crockery. I would highly recommend the villa and Joanne & Kevin were extremely helpful during our stay.
It is in a very quiet area about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Playa Blanca.
There's a huge amount of choice for accommodation in Lanzarote but we chose Villa Rohan from a shortlist because of the previous Tripadvisor reviews. From the very first contact with Joanne and Kevin, we knew we were in safe hands. Joanne responded promptly to our enquiry and immediately upon booking confirmation we received an email with useful information about the villa and the area. This included clear, concise directions from the airport to the front door. It's located in a quiet suburb of Playa Blanca. It's a 20 minute walk to the beach and promenade, which meant we usually drove rather than walked. I personally wouldn't stay here without a car, although airport transfers are available on request. Car hire on Lanzarote is so cheap that I can't imagine not hiring one. In fact it's probably cheaper than paying for transfers. We used PlusCar and couldn't fault them, but Auto Riesen and Cabrera Medina were also strongly recommended for service, price and quality. There was a welcome pack at the villa to help us settle in and it shows that a bit of extra thought has been given. We stayed as a couple, which was very luxurious, but there's room for the whole family. Joanne and Kevin are local if you need them, but they won't bother you otherwise. Previous reviews mirror our thoughts, so we won't repeat. But touches like the inclusive heated pool (some others charge for heating), a handful of dishwasher and washing machine tablets, a safe, bluetooth speaker, streaming movies on a big TV, free wifi, board games and DVDs, a big fridge and a freezer with ice trays, a bookcase with a great selection of English books, and a proper double mattress all make for a wonderful experience! It's a short drive to the shops. Parking is plentiful and free. Drive a few minutes further to the lighthouse, or maybe the spectacular road to El Golfo, and prepare to witness the most beautiful sunsets!
