“A really well equiped and thoughtfully apponted villa in a great location for a relaxing holiday.”
Reviewed January 11, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

From the minute we walked in we knew this villa was what we had aspired to in our previous attempts to find the right mix of location, quality and ambience for a once in a year break to capture the kind of climate we cherish. When the sun was bright the pool area was perfect, including a BBQ with all the equipment at hand. When it was duller and the wind (warm) did blow two or three day the walks to Papagayo beaches were invigorating and easy distance. Also in the other direction (west) to great food, drink and the people watching mecca around the marina.
We will be booking again when we consider Lanzarote for a holiday without question.

“superb stay”
Reviewed December 23, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

If you love uninterrupted peace and tranquility but still want the comforts of a modern villa with all the extras then Casa Strutt is the place to go. We couldn't recommend it highly enough after spending over a week here in early December.
From the moment we walked in we knew we'd love it here. Everything was spotlessly clean. The whole house is bright and airy and tastefully furnished. What we loved most (apart from the peace and quiet) is the very open feel about the place both inside and out. I think what really contributes to this is that the villa doesn't back onto other properties. The view from the living area out onto the pool and little garden with the big blue sky as a backdrop is a delight. And the views from the master bedroom are even better as you glimpse the sea and cliffs at various points along the horizon. The pool was very refreshing to use during the day when the sun got a bit too hot. (Yes, even in December)!
If you like lazy days on the beach like us then it's only a brisk 10-15 minute walk, albeit over the cliff, to the first of the Papagayo beaches, Playa Mujeres. Beyond this beach there are another 5 beaches, all amazing and all worth exploring.
The owners, Dave & Carol, were very helpful from our initial enquiries right through to returning home, responding quickly to texts and emails.
All in all, we had a very relaxing holiday and we would love to return here again.

“Fantastic location, great facilities, cant wait to return!”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just returned from a great family holiday with my wife, mother and nan at Casa Strutt.

The Villa when we arrived was clean and had all the necessary utilities required. Despite us arriving early we were allowed to drop our cases and the room was ready 1.5hr early. The cleaners helped with directions on using the alarm and were generally very pleasant on arrival. Having a washing machine was a godsend, and the kitchen was fully equipped for all our needs (with little things like coolbags available for beach trips).

Plenty of games, dvds and satellite tv to keep us occupied when the heat got too much!. There is a downstairs bedroom and bathroom which means that the villa can be used by people who have issues with access by stairs.

The Villa is well placed, and is very peaceful. The supermarket is less than 100 yards away for pretty much everything you would need, and we never waited more than 15 mins for a taxi (the rank is opposite the supermarket). Airport shuttles drop off and pick up at the nearby Iberostar Papagayo, again less than 100 yds away. Taxi to the Marina was 3 euros, Playa Dorada is 3.50 Euros, to Playa Blanca town 4 Euros.

Lanzarote (and Playa Blanca) is a very clean resort, and we had no issues with animals or insects of any kind!

Finally, dealing with Dave was very easy, communication prompt and courteous. I will most definately be returning when i get the opportunity. I will never stay at a hotel in Playa Blanca again!

“Another fabulous stay at this wonderful villa”

This was our fourth visit to Casa Strutt in as many years and as ever it did not disappoint.
We had a very relaxing stay, enjoying the pool, lazing around and going to the beach.
We used the local taxis to get to and from Playa Blanca/Playa Dorada - very reasonable at €4 each way for 5 of us.
As always, it was extremely handy having the supermarket so close.
We timed it right with the tide a few days and went down to the black beach at Las Coloradas (I recommend bringing beach shoes for swimming as it is partly rocky)
The children enjoyed the various inflatables and masks for the pool, as well as the selection of games. Monopoly, Scrabble and card games were a big hit.
The owners, Dave and Carol, were available for any questions we might have.
We're already looking forward to our next visit!

“Comfortable villa - great heated pool”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My friend and I had one week at Casa Strutt situated near Papagayo beaches in Lanzarote. I have been to Playa Blanca many years ago, and the villa was a bit further out of the centre than I had anticipated. However there was a bus stop nearby, and also taxis available at the local supermarket at the top of the orad - only two minutes walk away. We enjoyed the walk along the sea front to Rubicon Marina where there are many good eating places and interesting shops. (Take plenty of money for shopping at fantastic shoe shop). Great area for chilling and watching boats come and go.

We took the Ryanair transfer bus from the airport, that stopped at the Iberostar Papagayo hotel - only 3-4 minute walk away from the villa. They also picked us up from the hotel for transfer back to the airport. Though we did hire a car (mini cabriolet about 110 euros for 2 days at Plus cars) to see other parts of this fascinating island, you could easily manage without a car here. Best beach was just down from the hotel Princess Yaiza. About 20-25 minute walk, or bus takes you there in 5 minutes for 1.45 euros, Taxi 3.50 euros.

At the villa, we thoroughly enjoyed the heated and lit pool - great for late evening swims. The villa is very well equipped with cool bags, barbecue equipment, sun loungers, and inflatables for the pool. There is private parking for a car. Casa Strutt has a nice open outlook at front and back of the villa, so you are not overlooked. Some of the other nearby villas looked directly on to neighbouring properties - so no privacy . Very quiet area - no bars etc close by, so no noise to keep you awake at night, which suited us.

I'm sure I will be back again. I would have given an excellent 5 stars if the villa had been a bit closer to the centre. Overall, I would accept being further out of town for the luxury of the heated pool - in May it was needed as the weather was a bit chilly in the evenings some of the time.

“Winter Sun”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Just back from a week in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote staying at Casa Strutt with the family (2 adults and children of 13 and 12). Good accommodation and convenient quiet location. Would use it again, clean and well equipped. We could not get the Sky TV to work but were content with the Wi-Fi and DVD films when we needed a screen fix. 5 mins from a supermarket. 30 mins walk along a beautiful seaside walkway to Playa Blanca with Fuerteventura views, less to the Marina and its restaurants of which we tried the Blue Note. The Papagayo beaches are easily walkable or you can use the 3e toll road - these beaches are fantastic. We visited places across the whole island which has lots of tourist attractions - including Timanfaya, the Mirador, the caves, cactus garden etc. Loved Los Hervideros for the crashing waves and the seaside restaurants at El Golfo.

The island has amazingly clear night skies and very clean air.
