“Beautiful villa”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I would recommend this place to anyone. There were only two of us, so ample space with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, lovely large lounge with plenty of space, tv, dvd player, cd player and well equipped kitchen and dining area. We ate outside a few nights on the large private patio area which also has a barbacue and faces south so the sun shines constantly from dawn until dusk. Also there is a nice little private walled garden around the back if it is a bit breezy. We are pleased we chose to have the swimming pool heated, as it was sunny but a bit chilly at this time of year, so it was good to have a dip in a warm pool. The villa is in a nice quiet area but easy to walk to supermarket, bus or into the marina along the promenade where there are lots of restaurants and bars, so a car isn' t essential, although it is nice to have one to see some of the other sights around the island. We also walked into Playa Blanca New Year's Eve, where there are more cheaper bars and restaurants. This had a good party atmosphere over New Year, whereas the marina was quiet and some places were closed. On the way to Playa Blanca is the Papagao Centre with more restaurants and bars and we dropped into Mollies Bar for some light refreshments on the way to Playa Blanca.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Our first time in Lanzarote and we were not disappointed. The villa was well equipped and
had everything you needed. It was so peaceful and relaxing and the patio was a real sun trap. We hired a car although you don't really need one but we like to explore and found some lovely little spots to stop and admire the views. We took a trip to Puerto Calero which is very chic and also went to La Geria which hosts a vineyard and wine shop. A very pleasant holiday and villa which Rachel and John should be proud of. We would recommend this villa to everyone.

“Lovely Relaxing Week”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We arrived to a clean well maintained villa with a lovely swimming pool. Linda who manages the villa came and introduced herself and answered any questions we had, she then left us to enjoy our holiday.

The villa was very spacious with one en-suite bathroom and another bathroom between the two twin rooms. The beds are low but very comfortable.

The villa is situated a five minute walk to the coastal path, then a further lovely 15-20 minute stroll along this path with beautiful sea views will bring you to Marina Rubicon and if you time it right in the evening you will see the most beautiful sunsets. We loved the Marina with all its Restaurants and shops. We particularly liked Lani's, the food was excellent and service good. A further 10 minute walk on from the Marina brought you into Playa Blanca with some good restaurants (cheaper than the Marina) and typical resort shops.

We had a lovely week at Villa Caldera and would like to thank Rachel and John for the excellent communication throughout the booking. The e-mail wishing us a nice holiday was very thoughtful. I received my deposit back the next day.

All in all a very relaxing week and we would not hesitate to recommend Villa Caldera for a relaxing holiday in the sun.

“Lovely villa for a much needed relaxing sunny holiday”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Have just returned from a very lovely relaxing week in Villa Caldera. We were more than happy sunbathing and relaxing in and around the pool all week!! We only ventured out twice during the day time to go to the market at the marina on Saturday and one trip to the supermarket just down the road.

The villa was a great size for the 3 of us and was lovely, bright and very clean. Our transfers by Andy went perfectly and he gave us lots of advice about the island and where to eat and drink. Linda the villa representative checked we were ok the day we arrived and that we knew where to find her if we needed anything and then we had privacy for the rest of our holiday.

The villa was ideally located, being only a few minutes walk to the local supermarket which had everything you needed. Its only a further five minutes walk to the promenade/coast path which had amazing views. The Marina Rubicon was a further fifteen to twenty minutes walk away along the coast path, but we were going at a relaxed pace enjoying the sea views and hearing the waves against the rocks. The marina in the evening is very pretty with all the boats and lots of restaurants, we went there for 4 evenings out of the seven and visited Playa Blanca for the other evenings.

The bus to Playa Blanca was two minutes walk away for the villa and always arrived on time. It was only 1.35 euros and took under 10 minutes to get to the town. We preferred the Marina Rubicon as it was very relaxed, Playa Blanca was busier and had a lot of the "tacky" holiday shops but there was still lots of places to eat and drink. There is a main taxi rank and it was only 4 euros to get back to the villa.

All in all we had a great time with amazing weather all week and would recommend Villa Caldera to anyone. From my first initial enquiry, Rachel and John Lord were amazing and replied to emails very quickly and you could clearly tell that they wanted us to have a wonderful time at their villa. We had an email the day before we left to wish us a lovely holiday and there was an email waiting the day we returned. First class customer service, couldn't have been better.

Liked best: The villa was close to everything you needed but you also had piece and quiet and were left alone.
Liked least: The pool/sundeck was near to the road where the villa's entrance is. No one could see you went you were laying on the sunbed or in the pool. But they can see you if you stood up, but to be fair not many people went pass.

“Another Great Break at Caldera”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We've just returned from our second three-week stay at the villa and it was every bit as good as our first. We also benefitted from a discount for the further booking! All went smoothly from booking to the airport transfer for the return journey that was arranged on our behalf. We couldn’t fault the villa at all. It is spacious, well-equipped and tastefully decorated. The weather was brilliant for most of our stay and we enjoyed many an evening meal beside the pool as the sun was setting. We were very sad to leave and look forward to returning in the future.

From our initial enquiry to Rachel and John about villa caldera we have received fantastic service, even an email a day before we went to wish us a lovely time!
The villa is absoloutly beautiful literally home from home, decorated tastefully and had everything we needed.
Pool area is fantastic we had the sun from very early morning through to late evening unlike other neighbouring property's villa caldera is south facing and enjoys the sun all day long :)
All in all we all had a wonderful time and have already booked for next year!
DO NOT hesitating in booking you will not be disappointed.
