Thank you both for a lovely stay

We had a wonderful time staying at Villa Via Lactea. Weather wasn't brilliant, but it didn't stop us from enjoying the Island and all it has to offer. Lawrence & Cherrill who live next door were most helpful and not intrusive. Lawrence provided us with information on where to go and where to eat. He was most helpful and is a real character! Villa is really comfortable with an amazingly comfortable bed which provided us with a fantastic good night sleeps. The villa has been tastefully refurbished. Outdoor area is stunning. Spar food store is down the road, their butchery counter is excellent. A local restaurant, Asadero & Macher, about a mile away is very good and well worth a visit. Thank you both for a lovely stay. Hopefully, we will back!! Roger & Menna
Owner comment
Thank you both for your wonderful AND informative review. Being letting owners yourselves in UK your comments are particularly uplifting ...coming as they do from OTHER (??) professionals. As for 'himself being 'a real character' The only word you might have used to bolster me even further ? .... Eccentric ?? who knows I may just qualify one day LOL xxx Hurry back asap Lawrence for Cherrill

Absolutely fantastic !!

Tranquil, relaxing and heavenly are just three words we would like to use to describe the beautiful Villa Lactea. From the moment we arrived we knew we had picked the right place. Well located on the island we found that no destination was hard to get to. Nearby Puerto Colero was fantastic for restaurants and the SPAR S/mkt just down the road had everything (fresh) we could possibly need. Our children have loved the pool.- Even on the one rainy day ? - and loved the responsibility of being 'pool managers' all week. As for ALL the advice given by Lawrence and Cherrill.... Absolutely fantastic !! Thank you both for your wonderful hospitality including homemade sausage rolls.!!
Owner comment
As if this final review before shutting down for 6 weeks ......wrecking ball renovations after 12 years !! ........ was not enough.? We cannot wait to complete the works next week in time for Xmas. AND WELCOME YOU BACK A.S.A.P. Thanks again for everything from ' The Man - age - ment '

Another fantastic holiday

After yet another 'probably our last visit'(??) we are truly relaxed after another fantastic holiday. No surprise our next stay is already being planned, we are hopelessly hooked on Lawrence and Cherrills lovely villa...... With a pending upgrade elevating it new uncharted levels of excellence how could we not return? Book it for usual Sept/Oct 2017
Owner comment
As always .....you never fail to surprise us with 'charitable' comments. Thank you for your confidence in the complete refurbishment of our villa. As you say we NEVER do things by halves and after 12 years 'a new look' is now due. New video, photos and info: ....hopefully before Xmas ready to top up our bookings for 2017 Best wishes always Saludos Lawrence & Cherrill x

We would thoroughly recommend this location and villa

Had a lovely 2 week stay in this wonderful villa. The children (ages 15, 14 and 9) absolutely loved the pool and were in it from morning to night. The mountain location offers a very welcome breeze. We would thoroughly recommend this location and villa
Owner comment
Thank you all for your kind comments. We noticed that the 'children' ??.......had non stop fun. Your recommendation much appreciated.....as always. . Cherrill & Lawrence

We will be returning again

Thank you Lawrence and Cheryl for our brilliant holiday at your Villa, July 17th to July 31st. The location is perfect, very peaceful and remote but not to far from the shops, restraunt's and the beach etc. The Villa was excellent and very well equipped with everything we needed to be self sufficient during our stay. The kids really enjoyed the pool which was clean and warm, they spent hours playing in there. Lawrence has a wealth of knowledge of where to eat and visit, if your stuck for ideas then ask! Nothing was to much hassle for Lawrence and Cheryl, they where always on hand if needed. Thank you so much for having us to stay for the 2 weeks, I'm sure we will be returning again soon in the near future. Kind regards, Roberts family.
Owner comment
You are making us blush..... but don't let that stop you. !! For our part we have a mental 'top tier' of visitors compiled over many years with an ever increasing higher standard. The most OBVIOUS pleasure the whole Roberts family gained when enjoying every aspect of your holiday at our villa ......not only puts YOU ON THE LIST but leaves us content we played our part. We felt the v. high regard expressed during your stay was definitely 'A two way street' Your return ANYTIME would be a bonus L&C

We cannot wait to return

First time in Lanzarote and what a fabulous island it has proved to be, simply we cannot wait to return. The weather was a real bonus, glorious. The villa itself can only be described as having the ultimate Wow factor. Sunrise to sunset very memorable. Thank you Cherrill and Lawrence for helping us in so many ways, you really do know your way around the island.

If return thoughts need confirming ??? Thanks for your new reservation in October ...THE best month on Lanzarote ......see you then L&C

The villa is excellent - really well thought out

Even though the weather was poor for most of our week, we have had a lovely holiday. The villa is excellent - really well thought out and very well equipped. Lawrence and Cherrill are both delightful and very helpful. The advice from Lawrence and his knowledge of where and how to visit places ....particularly venues to eat ....were both welcome and worked on. All were as good as he promised Thank you for having us to stay for the week.

WE'LL BE BACK

We've had a really good week - despite the weather. Many time visitor to Lanzarote . First to La Asomada. Lovely property for outdoor living, nice and cosy inside too. You really couldn't ask for better hosts than Cherrill and Lawrence. They even supplied the Rennies !! lol Thank you both ......WE'LL BE BACK
Owner comment
After an AbFab January. Feb was a bit cooler. Still acceptable for multi visitors such as yourselves. Prayer mats out for NEXT visit. Thanks for the personal comments. The Rennie joke is our little secret.

Lawrence and Cherrill are excellent hosts

Our first return to Lanzarote in 18 years, the weather remains great,the infrastructure of the island much improved as have many of the fine dining restaurants recommended by our hosts. Lawrence and Cherrill are excellent hosts and the commodious accommodation exceeded are expectations by a mile as did the views of the ocean and mountains. If you like walking you will love that too.
Owner comment
You certainly appreciated the 'Lanzarote living' improvements. Not least our roads VASTLY improved in line with ALL services from your last visit. Thanks for the return booking on departure ....confirmation of a great time. Thanks for your excellent company and looking forward to return. L & C

We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly

7 days of fabulous sunshine. A last minute booking and what comfort to have Lawrence hovering at the 'other end'. Facilitating everything from car hire - directions and welcoming items of information for first time visitors to Lanzarote . We have explored the island with so many natural 'delights and sights' together with some superb informal yet 'proper' lunches and evening meals. The ever popular BARMEJO SECO wine reigns supreme. For us, a 'keep to ourselves' retired couple, we enjoyed the many homely facilities of the villa with it's 'light touch' from our charming patrons. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly
Owner comment
Thank you both for your kind words and comments. As first time visitors to our AbFab Island was gratifying to see you absorb so much in so little time.

What a stunning property

A PERFECT getaway for 9 days of winter sun ......FABULOUS. Back again in Lanzarote ( cannot keep away !! )and a first time visit for Mark to Via Lactea in La Asomada..... 'What a stunning property - and the views ? Wow' !We found enough sun, good food and great company (our next door hosts) to keep us going ......until NEXT time ? Not sure about the dress code on this island !! VERY informal at all times it seems!! - Prior advice from The Man - age - ment would be useful for first time visitors ? Thanks again Lawrence & Cherrill from us BOTH
Owner comment
Your holiday was underscored by the best January weather since records began. !! Good intro for first time Mark. Informal dress code but ALWAYS decent ....just ? Just let me know those return dates .....with plenty of notice advised !!

We hope to see you all in the not too distant future!

We booked a very last minute getaway in January 2016, the organisation was slick from start to finish and Harrie met us at the airport with a car. (Omnicars- brilliant service). We have stayed here before, to numerous to keep count now. The house looks great, the garden blooming and the pool was sparkling. We came to rest and recharge our batteries after a very busy time and are leaving having done just that. For prospective guests this house is well located - easy access to Puerto Calero with its various restaurants and bars, (Puro Gusto does amazing salads and beautiful coffee) Puerto Del Carmen and its harbour, as well as the weird lava fields and volcanoes that are so much part of LZ. There is an excellent library of books (yep the paper kind) for those who want to read, the wifi is good for internet or kindle updating and a selection of DVDs, jigsaws and games for those in need of entertainment. Henry the cat made regular visits and we met Little Henry ocassionally- I think he knows his place! The weather for the last 10 days has been amazing. Wall to wall sunshine, very little wind and surprisingly temperatures have held up at night - it really has been wonderful and has added to the success of our stay. Thanks to both for letting us stay....and we hope to see you all in the not too distant future!
Owner comment
Still recovering from our own travels we know the value of 'shutting out the world' Also over time we have learned just what importance you put on 'keep out world'!!! .(except CATS ??) Currently making a skull and crossbones enscripted 'Achtung MINEN' (International language ?) ready for your next visit. !!! Your email informing us EVERYTHING at the villa was 'perfect' is all we seek and thank you as always.

So many highlights we could recommend with

Our third visit but first stay in December taking in Xmas and New Year. The weather was simply glorious with the landscape so green ....a first. We revisited the Cactus Garden ....always a treat. Being Xmas we've eaten well and highlights included a fresh caught Halibut at El Golfo !! Also (would you believe) a Superb Chinese in Arrecife ...well worth the drive. An early start to catch the ferry to Graciosa one morning, gave an opportunity to swim in crystal clear waters and watch the fish. Not much to see but the deserted beaches which found us pretty much to ourselves. So many highlights we could recommend with other items saved and planned for our NEXT visit. Our La Asomada villa was ....as always ...perfect with the location making an ideal base for anyone .....Whatever their chosen pursuits. See you soon Lawrence/Cherrill - or even sooner if possible ??
Owner comment
Thank you T M & A. As always you seek out the little pleasures that make holidays here so worth while. Stunning weather , good food and gentle living. We are now back from our break in UK and soooooo appreciative of sun in our face warmth and fresh air. glad the villa was kept 'up to the standard' during our absence. We did our best and know it was appreciated. Hurry on back ...Too much of a good thing is wonderful Happy days 2016 L&C xx

We would like to add several more pluses to the 5 star rating

It's our second visit so expectations were high due to the standard obtained in our previous visit. Confirm ALL were met and some were exceeded - Check our longer February 2015 review for general details- again 5 stars plus. The weather was amazing 28 degrees all week. The pool was well used on a daily bases. The villa was peaceful, spotlessly clean and retains all of the necessities for a high level of comfort. It's the attention to detail that swing it for us. Comfortable beds, comfortable sun loungers, well stocked kitchen, good TV channels, great wifi, pleasant decor. etc. We've visited the island SEVEN times now and we would not intend to stay anywhere other than this lovely villa. Lawrence and Cherrill are always available if needed or do not intrude if you just want privacy. Loved the new kitten who came to say Hello every morning. We would like to add several more pluses to the 5 star rating. See you next year. Xx
Owner comment
The review from your first visit was so comprehensive ! and now this is simply 'icing on our cake' So glad the sun smiled on your break. You deserved it.....enjoyed it.......relaxed in it. Only one thing to say............ 'return for more of it' ......ANYTIME !! and a welcome mat prepared for it xx

A truly memorable time We won't soon forget

Back again for a 'too short' week 2015. As always Cherrill and Lawrence ( our wonderful hosts) ...most welcoming and helpful. We shared a wonderful evening ( courtesy of their so knowledgeable recommendation) at the Uga Bodega. A truly memorable time We won't soon forget. The villa continues to inspire and we are so much looking forward to 'next time' next year !!
Owner comment
Sorry Kev/Nat ...posting your review missed it's 'slot' but needless to say the remarks 'most kind'. The Uga Bodega nights are always 'special' with 'special people'. Good luck with your new venture and 'carnt weight' to hear success story next visit. BW to all 'The Man - age - ment' ??

If you're looking for peace and quiet this is it!

Thank you both for a wonderful relaxing stay. The boys have loved the pool..... And the adults have loved the peace and quiet. The villa is very well equipped and has everything that you need for a family holiday. The rooms are well decorated and it definitely has the feel of a home rather than a holiday let. The location is fabulous, quiet, rural, lovely views of the volcano and the sea. If you're looking for peace and quiet this is it! But being so central it is lovely to take a short drive to many of the little towns. To make the most of the holiday I recommend car hire. There is a well equipped supermarket just five minutes away and the roads are very easy to navigate if you wish to visit any of the nearby towns. You have been both very kind and very accommodating hosts. Always available to answer any questions. We really enjoyed our stay on the island. Kindest wishes from us all
Owner comment
Thank you for the 'extra' comments to our guest book and the useful info for 'newbies' visiting our site. Can only repeat we truly fell in love with your family and delighted for your obvious enjoyment of your holiday. PLEASE hurry back ......ALWAYS a welcome for such as you. PS The last entry in current 'guest book' allowed us to close it with ALL 5 star reviews since 2007. Now we start all over again.......sigh! xx

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL PLACE!!

After reading so many excellent reviews we were full of expectation when we arrived....and we were not disappointed! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL PLACE!! Everything was clean and is exactly as described and shown in the photos. What stands this villa apart from all the rest is its character and design. The only word I have is Beautiful. Add to that a superb central location to explore the island and every day was paradise. This place isn't just 5 Stars - its even better. Lawrence was the perfect host in every sense and a true gent. What he has created in the villa is simply spectacular! Our only regret was not getting to meet Cherrill - we hope to correct that next time. Thank you Lawrence - staying at your villa was the best holiday we've ever had and just what the doctor ordered!! We very much hope to return again soon. Much love to you both, Jess & Family
Owner comment
I am blushing head to toe !! .....BUT at pains to immediately acknowledge Cherrill's contribution is at least 50%. There was no excuse for not meeting her except you were so busy enjoying yourselves the paths never crossed .....!!!!! We will certainly correct next time and await only your confirmation of 2016 dates ......We 'Carnt weight' Love to all of your delightful family x

Until we meet again

Usually after 10 days or so we are ready for home. NOT on this occasion !! Could have stayed much longer. Our first visit to Lanzarote AND a first in a holiday villa, which proved to be so great we will never stay in an hotel again. To look around at the villa at one point of the holiday and see all 4 of us engrossed in reading our chosen books, summed up how relaxed and de stressed we all were and it was heart warming for me x The décor was so original, the paintings by cherril and the stories of how the villa was built showed an absolute pride by you both and that gave so much character throughout all of the villa. The panoramic view from the main bedroom is magnificent. Flights home were brilliant, all washing done and even fitted in watching William captain his team to a win tonight. 'May the roads rise up to greet you. May the wind be always at your back - and until we meet again --- May God keep you both in the palms of his hands' Janet xxxx
Owner comment
With your prior knowledge of our last visitors from WIGAN (NOT nice) ?? We can only say you put your town 'Front and Centre' back on the map for friendliness and sincerity. From first to last it was a total joy to welcome the family AND witness your enjoyment /appreciation of our villa. As for a return ? It becomes OUR challenge to 'keep up with the Joneses' xx L&C

Can't wait to return

Other family members have visited this villa for their holidays several times in recent years but this was a first to Lanzarote for Danny and myself. We loved it ! Quickly settled in to the villa. (Wow ! And then some ?) What a dream location. Those views in every direction. Privacy, quiet but moments only from everything we could need. We had been 'warned' about the owners, Cherrill and Lawrence, by our family but for us first time visitors their help, when needed, was invaluable. ---- Quick email or text request for a visit brought a swift response.. As for the island? We can understand not for everybody. Many would prefer Benidorm, Malaga or Ibiza. For us it was a time of wonder and a perfect mix of raw nature and (very) modern living. Although not our intention 'we shopped till we dropped' The Pound/Euro rate made everything so SO cheap. Can't wait to return and envy my sister booked for November return.
Owner comment
Your comments in our guest book were more than sufficient Lizzy, but this review is nevertheless much appreciated. We think Danny is still suffering 'credit card blues' and the reckoning that will come this month. Never mind the bargains in the shops were irresistible and made long term savings. Hope you will come again and give 'sis' our regards meanwhile. Best wishes from 'The team' (??)

As ALWAYS peaceful

ONLY a long w/e but time enough for another break at our favourite villa /destination, following Andrew's recent accident. It was a right time/ right place event and had you had space would have made it longer . Good for you - unfortunate for us . Fabulous time for us both. As ALWAYS peaceful, clean and the King size Bed was a dream. Have reported same to other family members, descending on you in a couple of weeks only. ! Good Luck !
Owner comment
Sorry I missed you due to absence in UK. Best wishes for accident recovery and look forward to yet another branch of your family due any moment.!! That'll be 3 this year ....so far ??? See YOU in November (fully recovered hopefully ?) L & C xx

We cannot wait to return

A lot has been said about this lovely villa and all true. So we would just like to add that it is a calm oasis in this mad world. Where nothing is to much trouble and time can even stand still !! We cannot wait to return on the 30th August. Thank you Lawrence and Cherrill xx
Owner comment
Cherrill has INSISTED you go immediately to one of our 'best of the best' visitor list....Will spare your blushes as to why but DELIGHTED it will be a few short weeks only to your return. A total of 5 weeks this year !!!. Very satisfying to learn also just how much you enjoyed your holiday .......and our part in it. Thank you from us both........ aka The Man - age - ment

5+++++++ stars from me

I can not praise the villa or its owners highly enough.....I spent a month here this year and was totally pampered beyond belief!......the building is stunning and yet very homely..... Lovely pool and great location...... If there's anything you want that's not there consider it provided by those who pamper.......truly lovely people and if it wasn't fully booked I'd have stayed another month!.....5+++++++ stars from me ..... I've stayed in some of the most beautiful villas in Puerto Calero but this one beats them all simply because it's a real home from home..... Relaxed beyond belief and I hardly wanted to go out......book now to avoid being disappointed like I was by having to leave
Owner comment
We were both very saddened to learn of your frightening accident immediately following your return home ....and hence the delay in posting your review. Thank you for the kind words , you KNOW we await your return for further R&R asap. For YOU.... more than anyone !! 'Because you're worth it' Speedy recovery wishes xxxx

Many thanks Lawrence & Cherrill

A beautiful villa and fantastic location for our SEVENTH trip to the island. Many thanks Lawrence & Cherrill for the attention to detail in such a peaceful location. As a CYCLIST it was an ideal spot to start off from - not too much of a climb at the start of the day !! ( warning ! Watch out for 'chasing dogs' and some local roads need serious TLC ) !! Sad to leave after such a relaxing time but hope to return soon.
Owner comment
Your kind words MUCH appreciated. VERY glad you mentioned road conditions.!! I have forwarded your comments by hand delivered protest to Tias Council. Hopefully will add weight to the PROMISED repairs 6 months ago. Would add your minor cuts and bruises NOW logged as MAJOR surgery and possible resultant GANGRENE !! Await results. Hasta la vista L& C

5 star is probably not enough!

West of Ireland couple stayed at this Villa for 10 days in an attempt to restore our 10 year Love affair with the Island following a Burglary in Matagorda last year....we were not disappointed....this Villa is the place where tranquility,stunning views,comfort,security, peacefulness and stress free holidaying comes together....it really is stress free and the views..My God...our Love for Lanzarote for the Island is well and truly restored....we have booked two weeks already for next year and 100% recommend this Villa and it's Man Age Ment will give you some of the best Life advice to take home...take it on board...he's a wise old devil! 5 star is probably not enough!
Owner comment
In response we can only thank you for the LOVE you felt for the villa during your stay .....as shown by the respect on leaving (spotless!) Immediate upgrade beyond Gold Star status. Reserved for a few only ...Platinum !!!. Dates for next year set in 'lava'. PS. We have before advised our web master to increase star ratings up to 7 !!! His response ...... ' Don't push your luck' ????? xx from The Man - age - ment

Would recommend this villa without any hesitation

We had an amazing time in this lovely villa. Our two 7 year old daughters loved it as much as we did. Accommodation excellent, location and views perfect and the friendliness/helpfulness of the owners made us wish we'd found this villa last year when we visited this wonderful island for the first time. No need to say any more other than we've booked for same time next year and would recommend this villa without any hesitation.
Owner comment
If your delightful twins enjoyed themselves THAT much ! ..... then makes our time for ALL of you so much more worth while. First time visitors but neatly slotted in for a return. Bunk beds at the ready....pool toys neatly stored. Champers on ice !!.....on US The Owner/ Man - age - ment team thank you xx

Hope to see you again soon

This was our first visit to Cherrill and Lawrence's beautiful villa. We have visited Lanzarote MANY times and experienced some of it's very finest accommodation. This has to be amongst the very best. Our host's hospitality enhanced the comfort and 'homeliness' of the villa and we could not have asked for more. Help and good advice was always on hand and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you ! We have had a wonderful holiday with no hesitation in recommending this villa. 5 stars !! Hope to see you again soon
Owner comment
Thank you both AND we took note of your 'improvement tips' ....extracted from you under torture !!....... These have now ALL been faithfully executed. ( Shades of S&M reading this lol). See you again ...God willing !!........don't be shy ?

We'll definitely be back

This was our second stay at the Villa and it was all perfect ....again. The warm and very welcoming hospitality of 'The Man - age - ment' was the same as four years ago but also there have been a lot of improvements at the villa ( Owner's comment .....a LOT of hard work !). We definitely think it to be one of the best accommodations on the whole island. Perfectly suited for all kinds of weathers. We'll definitely be back..... Yet again.
Owner comment
Following the worst spell of weather in our 33 years living here, we were on bended knee(s) for some sun for your stay. Your most kind comments and some sunshine ensured efforts all worth while......... Another visit? Anytime !. 'WELCOME' Apart from anything else you bring sunshine every time. Thank you all xx

What a creative Villa it is full of Lovelyness!!

We've been to Lanzarote a few times however this visit was the best by far thanks to Villa Madera! Being tucked away in La Asomada was ideal for us to be able to relax and also take advantage of Lawrence and Cherrill's local knowledge to find places to eat definitely off the beaten track. Aswell as being advised to venture to Arrecife's new Harbour area for a change of pace. A hire car was very useful, thanks for the hook up Lawrence, however we enjoyed staying local to the Villa so we could make the most of the sun traps we had found. What a creative Villa it is full of Lovelyness!! We can't wait to stay again in October with baby in tow!!!
Owner comment
Thank you both for this . You were great visitors and the pleasure of your stay was very much ours !! Congrats re the 'expected one' and NO Worries for your 'family' return in October. Keys will be under the mat with a forwarding address in case of emergency. Note however we will be 12 hours ahead or 12 hours behind depending on whether we flee (!) East or West....... as far as we can go in either direction.?? Good luck to you all. Can't wait to see you again ......so we won't LOL xxxx

This is the perfect destination for a holiday

Our first visit to Lanzarote and we were total 'greenhorns' We would like to thank you both for your help and attention to every detail ....not least the hire car.. It helped make our stay at your villa exactly what we needed. The accommodation was/is really lovely, very tasteful and the beds (Wow!) ensured we had our best sleep since forever. We managed to socialise locally,eating well with the best of everything courtesy of your personal recommendations. The pool area is simply perfect for day or night 'chilling out' (no pun intended lol). A return is not just a wish? It's a promise. We can only advise any readers of this review this is the perfect destination for a holiday on this wonderful island. Thank you for helping us have a great time
Owner comment
We had this verified from the lovely comments in our visitor book . 'A great time ' ALL the time is what we seek for all guests.... See you soon OR sooner xx

We would definitely return

Right from the start we felt very at home at this villa. We brought only hand luggage (good old Ryanair allow two bags each) knowing that the villa had a washing machine . The villa is extremely well equipped and comfortable. Amazing kingsize bed, comfortable sofas both inside and out, plentiful sun loungers. Excellent wifi signal, sky tv (free channels), flat screen TV with HDMI socket (we brought our HDMi cable and plugged our Kindle in for films). Dvd players, loads of DVD's. Villa is nicely decorated with owners artwork which creates a pleasant ambiance. It is located 15 mins drive from airport but definitely not on the flight path! The area is quiet with good views to the sea, mountains and neighbouring islands. There is a Eurospar supermarket 5 mins drive which sells everything. The marina in Puerto Calero is 10 mins drive and has appropriately 20 restaurants and bars. Back to the villa, on arrival we found the fridge stocked with water, milk, beer and Lawrence and Cherrill had left us a lovely bottle of Cava to drink. the pool is heated by solar panels so is dependent on the weather but I did manage to have several dips throughout the week. There is an outside BBQ and dining area and a lovely covered seating area with sofa, armchairs, patio heater a great place to seat out a night for a drink and a bit of star gazing. although we had mixed weather we had a lovely week and there is plenty to see on the island. There are three bathrooms, the master bedroom has a bath and there was always plenty of hot water. A car is essential and we use a company called Cicar, they are well priced , include all insurances, no excess and you usually get a free driver, also the car is waiting for at the airport. This is our sixth visit to the island and will be returning again. we would definitely return to this villa and are happy to recommend it to other travellers. Lawrence and Cherrill are on hand if you need them but do not invade your privacy, it is an ideal setup.
Owner comment
Wow Elayne !! nothing I could possibly add except our sincerest THANKS for your obvious exuberance....... which on this evidence is no small thing. Trust you will return to your 'home from home' anytime you wish. Don't worry about 'availability' ? Our loveliest guests all learned to 'bunch up' long since lol. XX from Lawrence and Cherrill.

We will definitely be returning

Recently returned from our first visit to Lanzarote (which in itself is a truly beautiful island) and with the directions sent to us by Lawrence made the journey from the airport to their lovely quirky villa sooooo easy. The outdoor space and views are breathtaking as is the fully equipped villa and must admit the super king size bed was absolutely heavenly!!! We would like to thank Lawrence for all his advice and his knowledge of this beautiful island and the knowledge that we knew he was on hand if we needed any help, Cherril for her attention to detail in the villa and her fantastic artwork, and last but not least Lottie (Lawrence and Cherril's West Highland Terrier) for her impromptu visits a big hug. We will definitely be returning.
Owner comment
I am particularly grateful for your kind comments regards Cherrill. Very often her dedication to (near as dammit) perfection goes unheralded although not unnoticed I'm sure. As for Lottie her affinity for the Scots was well in evidence. Thank you and hurry back. This island will always welcome such as you. Best wishes ongoing Lawrence

Highly recommend a visit

Made the most of a last minute opportunity and managed to squeeze in Xmas week which was fantastic. Just to say thanks to you both for the lovely efforts you made to keep your villa stunning AND festive. As expected it proved to be the perfect base to launch ourselves into Xmas and a shame New Year was previously booked or we would definitely have stayed! Highly recommend a visit and we will definitely be returning in 2015!
Owner comment
What can we say except 'thank you and hurry back' ? (Your preferred 2015 dates on hold). Delighted we ALL participated in Xmas lunch IN THE SUNSHINE xx Cherrill and Lawrence

Such a peaceful place that we would wish to repeat very soon

Thanks so much for these quiet and wonderful days. Your beautiful house and breathtaking views made us forget the Cities ( Madrid and London) with all their stress. Such a peaceful place that we would wish to repeat very soon. Thanks too for your festive hospitality and wishing you both - HAPPY 2015

We can only repeat how enjoyable ( read 'easy') with your fluent English. Full marks to each and everyone of you. Our joint toast to the New Year now followed by ongoing best wishes in Madrid and London ......your hosts L&C x

We were not disappointed

In life we are all dealt cards from the pack. Not always good ones but on this occasion, a handful of ACES...... Despite the weather misbehaving itself BIG TIME, we were both determined to branch out and enjoy everything we could ....not least braving the challenge of driving on the 'other' side. Well worth the effort, if a little nervous at first but then no problem. We had read lots of the 5 star reviews (100+ to choose from, and counting), about our villa choice and ventured forth with utmost confidence. Our personal conversations with the owner, prior to booking, assured us that we were in for something special and on arrival ?? Not just a warm welcome from our hosts but their obvious enthusiasm to set us on the right track was most comforting. The prime reason for our visit was one of relaxation, following Linzi's major shoulder operation ......we were not disappointed. The villa is aptly described as 'stunning' (definitely a minor understatement) and Linzi had her best nights sleep in ages on a dream superking mattress. Add the laughter, chit chat and total chill out with our hosts (always on hand but totally respecting our privacy) turned our stay into sheer delight. Despite the weather, we were able to enjoy the remarkable views to the coast and beyond ..breath taking. We have stayed in other parts of Lanzarote previously (Costa Teguise / Playa Blanca ) but our next return will be back to stay in our 'dream villa' and enjoy time with our now ....'friends'
Owner comment
Think a couple of 'Jokers' were in the pack too Peter. If we can get such a fab review from (Aces or no !!) a pack stacked so heavily against you weatherwise....we must be doing something right. Truth was of course your resilience and determination to enjoy yourselves made your stay 'memorable' Upside ? ...Your intended visit in 2015 WILL be full of sunshine. PROMISE !! Lanzarote is already 'back on track' with sunshine dawn to dusk

We shall return!

Our second visit to Villa Madera, as good if not better than the first.Wonderfully well presented Villa ( we can only reinforce what other reviews have already said) with some worthwhile improvements since our last stay on the inside plus some rather eccentric ones on the outside (Probably the only Japanese garden in the Canaries?). The extra large beds deserve a mention. Lawrence as friendly and helpful as ever without being intrusive.Many thanks to him for organising Lunch in the spectacular surroundings of the Yaiza Princess Hotel. Great to see Henry the Cat on his feet again after his accident. We shall return!
Owner comment
Eccentric' ? .....recognition wahaay overdue. This is a first and a truly welcome comment. Thank you kind people. Glad you enjoyed the surprise lunch sponsored by your friends and our similarly honoured guests Graham&Bev. Mascot Henry btw continues to recover. Space allotted for next year ....see you ALL then .....L&C

We will be back!!!

Once again an excellent stay in wonderful Lanzarote with the perfect hosts. This was our sixth visit to Villa Madera and once again we were treated like royalty. L&C introduced us to the new Arrecife Marina and Plaza 24 Restaurant on a memorable evening. We would recommend the island and Villa Madera wholeheartedly. We will be back!!!
Owner comment
SIXTH visit ? ...well we don't keep score but with a very high 'encores' record (80% plus) we do have a very short list of 'favourites' guests and you are at the very top end.!! We felt most honoured to be included in your 'special day' celebration and Plaza 24 although very new gave us a truly memorable evening. Thank you and hurry back.....again ? Your 'friends' optional but always welcome whatever the occasion !!!!!

The villa itself is stunning!

What can we say...... The villa itself is stunning! Peaceful, secluded and surrounded by breathtaking views of the bleak but beautiful landscape. The pool area is sublime, with three purpose made seating areas, each of which have their individual comforts and quirks (and a great BBQ). We loved the pools water aeration system, The HUGE BATH TAP (which provides the heating, aerates the water and greatly reduces the need for lots of chemical, great for sensitive eyes and skin like mine) is a real focal point, along with the impeccably kept surrounding gardens. Inside the villa is wonderful, with quirky architecture, great sized rooms and great facilities, everything you could need is there and if you can't find it all you have to do is ask 'The Management!' Speaking of the management........ Lawrence and Cherrill...... We could not have asked for warmer hosts, they were welcoming, thoughtful and were there to help us as much (or as little) as we needed, their knowledge of the island was invaluable and assisted us to make the best of the time we had. My only gripe is that we didn't have enough time to do everything we wanted. We will definitely try to remedy this next year......... The island of Lanzarote has so much to offer, Lawrence & Cherrill provide the perfect base from which to discover it.
Owner comment

It IS simply fabulous and waaaaay beyond words

Hello! This review includes a personal 'thank you both so much' for the truly amazing hospitality, help and advice that ensured we all had a faaaaaab 8/9 days. As everybody who has stayed at your villa knows it IS simply fabulous and waaaaay beyond words. Bringing gasps from each of us on arrival and a tear on departure. All in all, as we Irish say, 'Totes amaze balls' from the fab five
Owner comment
It was no secret ?.....5 Irish visitors aged between 19 and 23 gave us concerns from the moment of your enquiry. Totally unfounded !! Fun seekers? sure BUT respectful of the villa and courteous always. As the joke goes 'Not all Irish are drunks and not all blondes are dumb' Add to that.. No (visible) tattoos and no 'metal' but you still had fun and totally won us over. Your families should be proud......... Come back soon

THE PERFECT PLACE

We have had another fantastic, relaxing two weeks in Lanzarote. 'Your villa is just THE PERFECT PLACE to get away from it all' It was our second time around staying here and made a point of experiencing more of the local life, thanks mainly to the endless supply of information from our hosts. Of course the daily visits from the villa's 'mascot' Henry cat , always a bonus. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done .....again? Looking forward to next August already . Love and best wishes from the Kempster clan x
Owner comment
Considering,..... due to malicious 'bad press' from the 'ill informed and ignorant' ? ( thankfully a fading fast memory).....you nearly didn't make it LAST year ? Your second visit and planning your third ?? Makes it all worth while. Thanks again from The Man - age - ment

We had no second thoughts

With no knowing of Lanzarote My husband and I found this villa on the Internet. As vistors from Poland we could only hope we found the right place for our holiday. We travelled to England first then from Gatwick. From first moment of arriving and meeting owners we had no second thoughts. If there could be nicer villas we don't know but not possibly for us. We have been in contact all holiday with our friends and family at home saying how wonderful this island and this villa and the owners Lawrence and Cherrill. We know our children will want a return, so see you again next time. Thank you Aleksandra and family

Simply amazing

Our business (and pleasure) travels take us all over world visiting many different places to stay. Experiencing the very best to tolerating the worst. 'Simply amazing' was the bottom line for the hospitality shown to us. Very personal yet not overbearing. We were both desperate for some peace and tranquillity and found it the moment we opened the door ! Beautiful ! and then some !! A week is never enough when you find a holiday place to stay such as this. So sorry you were booked for September BUT.... there will be a return so 'be afraid' C & R
Owner comment
Having some idea of your background Catherine we WERE indeed rather nervous.?? having been checked out once recently by 'heavies' from Downing St !! We now know we need be 'afraid' of nothing from you and can't wait to see you both in Lanzarote ( or perhaps Galway ?) ANYTIME xx

Loved every minute

Had a great stay at the villa which came highly recommended and it certainly was what was promised. A perfect place to relax and unwind and take in the stunning views - loved every minute. The only regret is that we didn't stay longer We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you
Owner comment
Thank you for these kind comments T & M. We know you were nervous on arrival and it was our pleasure to help you unwind. Please do not hesitate to re visit for more of the same Lawrence & Cherrill

We loved it and will definitely be coming back

After landing at the airport just after midnight, following a flight delayed by over three hours and driving the short journey to the villa, we opened the door to what can only be described as a stunning sight. There were lights all around the outside area which lit up the lovely pool and different sunbathing and under cover/in the sun seating area. The owner left us a lovely welcome meal complete with beer and wine - such a thoughtful thing to do given our stressful journey. There is something for everyone at Villa Madera and everything is done thoughtfully and is real quality - there are no white plastic table and chairs here! The owners are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble, although you only see them if you need them. We loved it and will definitely be coming back
Owner comment
Being told 'You are very trying' is always a welcome comment Ma'am ! Although, hopefully, 'slightly lost in translation' ? You were most kind. Thank you too for sending your friends who followed you......hopefully and in the fullness of time(?) they will have something ( 'anything')to say ? Best wishes from 'The Man - age - ment' aka owners Lawrence & Cherrill

The perfect place to unwind

Beautiful, tranquil, amazing views and the perfect place to unwind. Cannot recommend this property highly enough. Our first visit and after only a couple of days we were so delighted and impressed we have re booked for later this year. My daughter spent lots more time in the pool and so was in heaven. Also would recommend a trip to Rancho Texas Fun Park for children which is only 10 minutes away. Looking forward to our return visit!
Owner comment
Thank you for this Catherine..... we lap up kind words. Makes it all worth while. As you know our heavy bookings schedule means we will need to shuffle with your requested return dates. Promise !! ...In the event of a cancellation ? ...YOU will have first refusal. BTW we guessed your daughter enjoyed the pool? wonderful non stop laughter for your entire stay. GetBak2U

TOTALLY relaxing, beautiful villa

After a 24 hour delay ,courtesy of EM airport, we were more than ready for a wonderful break. True we are regulars going back to 2009 and indeed our second visit this year ( with a third scheduled for July !). As always any time spent at the villa allows us to TOTALLY relax and re charge our batteries. Incredible that despite 3 visits most years the villa always seems to have undergone a complete makeover. The owners never stop upgrading it and currently a complete exterior paint job.....looks great. Our favourite spot remains the delightful pool lounge. Shade,comfort ...and we've said it before....'bliss' . See you both soon x
Owner comment
Was nice see John looking soooo much better after his 'set back' Thanks for this and see you in July .. ...back to paint pot now !

I can't recommend it highly enough

This was our second stay at Villa Madera and I can't recommend it highly enough to those of you who may be reading this and considering a holiday there. You won't be disappointed, they're the ultimate hosts - dare I suggest GS? They are very helpful & knowledgeable about the island but are never instrusive. The location of the villa is fantastic, very private & peaceful but close enough to everything you need. The villa itself is fully equipped and the owners are always adding little extra touches to make your stay even more enjoyable. We absolutely loved having breakfast under the new pagoda. Nearby Puerto Calero is lovely for an evening meal/drink.. We stayed whilst it was the owner's birthday and he really pushed the boat out, arranging a gorgeous tapas lunch at Arrieta but the icing on the cake (excuse the pun..!) was of course having coffee with the Camerons! Lanzarote must be the 2014 holiday destination! We can't understand upon our return to blighty why we are so much in demand socially...! Seriously, thank you for a great time, perfect weather, perfect location and lovely genuine people.
Owner comment
This is our 22nd consecutive 5 star review in 9 months Michelle and (according to some) 'unbelievable' that I continue to fool ALL of the people ALL of the time. Truth is of course when dealing with such lovely people as yourselves, the one time only 'degenerates' fade into obscurity ( where they belong of course) Thank you for your comments, cannot wait for your return (with Adam naturally). As to 'the' lunch you could not refrain from mentioning........ Although rather cramped on one table the introduction over coffee to holidaying celebrities (!!!!!!!) was simplicity itself. What you were not aware of was the black looks from those we knew in the Guardia bodyguard silently begging us not to divulge their presence. Wasn't it nice THE lady in question !!! .... knew of our website ? Am forwarding your review ...care of HM Gov .....post haste. Thank you to all Stokes family members xx

What an amazing space to unwind

Thank you for our stay in your wonderful villa. There is little we can add since it has all been said before ....the bottom line is peace and comfort. Our favourite place without doubt the outside pool lounge. What an amazing space to unwind , totally. Sad to leave but both feeling extremely rested Love to you both ,see you again. Colin & Annette. PS Trust your incredible knowledge of the island (people and places) introduced us to our 'best favourite place' to eat and drink, first floor terrace La Portena in Pto Calero Marina

Had a wonderful relaxing stay

Had a wonderful relaxing stay in your lovely villa. As hosts you were very hospitable but also left us alone for much needed peace and quiet. The bed was simply amazing!! We both slept better than for years !!!! The way you have set the villa to help guests relax meant we had absolutely nothing to worry about. With your help we found lots of things to do - places to eat. Our host has a knack (and knowledge)of advising good value local places that are truly high quality and good value.. Great holiday and thank you once again

A holiday retreat that is wonderfully peaceful and quite secluded

We had a wonderful holiday in your stunning villa ,: It is great when you find yourself a holiday retreat that is wonderfully peaceful and quite secluded from the hustle and bustle of a busy resort . The weather was not great so we did not get to use the lovely outside area much but we were busy exploring anyway and did not stop us from seeing all the amazing sights of this beautiful island . Thank you for the great information about where to dine,shop & general what to do . The villa was superbly comfortable ,everything you need at hand. Thanks again for making our holiday so special xx.
Owner comment
Knowing you to be business people, reliant on the good word of others, we can only express our thanks for taking time and trouble to send this. Full marks for filling every moment with fun fun fun. You both deserve to leap from success to more success. Here for you anytime.

A beautiful villa hosted by a caring owner

A very personal message to our hosts: Following our first visit to your villa we wish to ensure this message is read by all visitors currently booked and for the attention of all future holiday makers. Simply we are both furious that a report on the Internet would try to ruin what turned out to be an outstanding visit to a beautiful villa hosted by a caring owner (helped by his lovely wife of course). Less than a week before arrival, excited at the prospect of some quality time together, by chance we read a report on this villa which had it not been for the many 5 star reviews could have caused us great concern. Totally spoiling a time my wife and I have worked for since booking it last Summer. This message is therefore to any prospective visitors. Believe us, this clearly amateurish web site is a sham !! And the perpetrators are best described as vindictive, very sad 'mischief makers' ( 10 months after is unbelievable ). We took the precaution of reading the guest book on arrival before actually meeting the owners and it seemed improbable from the content we had anything to worry about. Not a single negative from start (2005) to current. Indeed we were proud to have added our own words of praise before leaving. Superlatives were exhausted by former guests long ago. The weather on arrival was far from perfect , thankfully improving throughout our stay. It didn't really matter. Our holiday home lived up to our original expectations ( and everybody else's from the reviews ) and with the owner's invaluable knowledge we enjoyed every moment. The only downside was our attempt to rebook for later this Summer/ Autumn, only to learn that the villa was fully booked at time of asking. Not surprised at all. Please accept this sincere 'thank you' and await dates confirmation for next Spring. With luck joined by the friends who (hesitantly) brought the above mischief web site to our attention
Owner comment
Was unable to read this prior to posting Dan/Liz and much as we appreciate your sentiments we can only apologise again that somehow as 'first timers' ..you slipped through the net of being advised of the 'unfortunates' before arrival. As you now know since October last year ALL NEW CLIENTS have been directed by me TO the 'mischievous' (like that term !! ) web site BEFORE we will accept the booking or payment. Our unprecedented FULL order book has proven the wisdom of this 'open, nothing to hide ' policy. Not a word of dissent from any guest. (Gratitude would be a better expression) Sorry about non availability for this year. Look forward to seeing all four of you next Easter (ish) BW LCW

What a wonderful introduction to Lanzarote

What a wonderful introduction to Lanzarote. World travellers we are but a first in the Canary Islands. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting the owners whilst staying at this lovely villa. Thank you both so much for your advice and direction. The villa is wonderful and feels as though it came about organically, making best use of the views and levels and has a charming eccentricity. We have had a good chance to explore the island top to bottom, noting the influence of Manrique is everywhere. Particular favourites....Fundacion de Manrique (built into the lava 'bubbles') Our hosts recommendations for two restaurants in Arrieta with wild beaches along the coast road between Orzola and the Jameous caves. The sunset in El Golfo was phenomenal and of course the trip around Timanfaya volcanoes. Thank you.... you were perfect and knowing hosts and between you have created this very special place.on the island
Owner comment
Whilst any of your kind words are always a boon , I am appreciative of the use of the word 'eccentricity' in print .....replacing the equally acceptable 'whacky' which from 'Archtects of distinction' is a real compliment. Cherrill and I noted your rescilliance in the face of some pretty awful weather. Nice change from the whimps who complain about a stiff 'breeze' .You just got on and enjoyed yourselves,,,,,giving us a great time also. GSG rating automatic See you then .

A haven of tranquility

When you arrive for the first time and come through the side door leading straight to the pool area, you just know you made the perfect decision as to where to stay. The evident peace and relaxation, the views of the volcanoes and beyond to Fuerteventura make this villa in La Asomada a haven of tranquility . We loved the setting, the quirky 'nooks and crannies' and the sound of running water. Lawrence and Cherrill provided exactly what was needed following a fraught '27hour journey' when we were diverted from Bournemouth to Luton (due to some awful weather) before flying out a day late!! Your hospitality and common sense advice meant we made the most of our time. We particularly enjoyed El Golfo,Puerto Calero, Playa Quemada and Teguise. Henry the cat ...referred to time and time again in your guest book, has been ever present. Shame we can't take him with us but could never afford his taste for prawns and squid !! Never mind we are looking forward to seeing him and his owners in the near future.
Owner comment
Some visitors know how to make the best of .....let's be honest ......some less than perfect weather. Delays and disappointments simply getting here? Yet you still ensured a great 2 weeks for yourselves. Any part we played to help ? ...Always our pleasure. We look forward to seeing you both again and now added to our 'special' list (GSG's) !!

Your villa lived up to it's (well deserved) 'stunning' reputation

Sorry to have left without adding our comments to the 'scores' of other high praise testimonials in your visitor book. However trust this will put the record straight. Obviously the weather was hardly perfect but having visited Lanzarote many times previously we realise this was simply unfortunate. The patio heater supplied ensured we had total comfort in the pool lounge and we acknowledge you both did all you could to ensure your villa lived up to it's (well deserved) 'stunning' reputation. As you know we intend to return 'sooner than later' Just hope your heavily booked visitor calendar will squeeze us in.......We can't possibly wait until next year, much too long
Owner comment
Not the best weather is an understatement. think you are too kind. We really appreciated your comments that ....as always......we did our best to make you comfortable. Looking forward to your return ......Anytime !

What a treat to stay here

Wonderful!! What a treat to stay here. Arrived just before Christmas, Cherrill and Lawrence had decorated the outside space with fairy lights, giving it a very tasteful and festive glow. The villa is beautiful, all we could possibly need. Outdoor pool, sun beds, seating areas with plenty of shade. Barbeque area, which we used, great fun. Amazing vista overlooking Puerto Del Carmen and the surrounding area, sunsets over Fuerteventura. Inside the villa, very tasteful and comfortable, everything we needed. Wifi, dvds, books, games ( ideal to keep our 10 year old occupied). Hot water always available, plenty of towels, beds that you want to sink into. Our hosts were always available for help and advice without being obtrusive, we even had home made sausage rolls, ( delicious ) and a very lovely bottle of Champagne to toast the New Year. We always say that the little things mean a lot, they can make you want to revisit a place, because our hosts made us feel so welcome, and truly have made a little paradise. It would be advised to have a hire car, a very good Spa 2 mins down the road has everything, 5 minute drive into Puerto Del Carmen. My family and I would really recommend this place. Do give it a try....AMAZING
Owner comment
4 adults, 2 children ? Did not know WHAT we might have been letting ourselves in for !! No worries ....proved to be an absolute delight. As you admitted ......'Our VERY good fortune we were lucky to take advantage of a late cancelation right through Xmas/New Year'. A 'plus' could be invitations coming for a couple of weddings meanwhile? Just in time for intended next Xmas booking .........PERHAPS !!!!

I recommend the villa without hesitation

We really enjoyed the character and individuality of the villa. We came here to have peace and quiet...and this was achieved....terrific sleeps in a huge super king bed. The very best part of our stay was that every morning I could look out on the Juliet balcony and just admire the view. The owners were very helpful and gave us useful information about where to eat and what to do...this helped us get the best out of our stay. I recommend the villa without hesitation...to have strong Wi-Fi helped us keep in touch with home and business. We will book again next year.
Owner comment
Thank you both so much for endorsing the kind comments you left in our guest book. The views,as you mention are just one of the reasons visitors love staying at our villa. Any help we were able to give? Our pleasure. Look forward to confirmation of your return dates ! Meanwhile best wishes for 2014

A MASSIVE thank you to the owners

The only negative comment about this villa is having to leave so soon. As Mary Poppins might say 'practically purrfect in every way'. The owners (our hosts) ensured our holiday was stress free and in every way as 'relaxing' as it could possibly be. Even though we have been coming to Lanzarote for ten years we were able to learn so much from them. My personal favourite place during our stay was the sofa in the pool lounge. Siesta and Sun as it disappeared behind the volcanoes .....Bliss !! Realising there simply is NOWHERE ELSE to stay now, we are already making plans to return and take up yet more of the owner's recommendations. The Tegala and Asadero restaurants close by lived up to their reputation ( another tick for the owners). Forgive mentioning 'Henry' (A very special cat) made a personal welcome for every return 'home'. A MASSIVE thank you to the owners, simply for letting us experience your amazing villa. See you soon or maybe sooner. Xxxx

Nothing more to add except from your new dates 'sooner' it will be. Thanks a million xx

It's absolutely beautiful

I'm not sure who these people are who are leaving poor reviews of Villa Madera in Asomada, Lanzarote. We go a few times a year and have always found it to be spotless with quality furnishings. It's absolutely beautiful and you should book it without any worries. Trust me I have very high standards!! Elaine Healey
Owner comment
Thank you for your concerns Elaine and only one of scores received personally from our clients 'old and new' However Please do not concern yourself too much.....our (nearly) full bookings page is testament enough .....not to mention the NOW 92 x 5 star reviews !! See you soon xx

Stunning villa AND superb hosting

Our first visit to Lanzarote and surely not the last. Enhanced by the surroundings of your oft repeated 'stunning villa in Macher' AND the superb hosting by the owners aka 'The Management'!. A special thank you to 'Lorenzo' ( one of many aliases)for a fascinating day out. Lunch in Arrieta was most memorable. One day you WILL finish building and a new position of 'Lanzarote tourist guide' is assured. See you next year .......a promise
Owner comment
As with all our visitors.....at your disposal if asked. I suppose 30 years living here I should know something of where and what on Lanzarote. thanks for lunch BTW

Can only describe it as 'memorable'

A first visit to your lovely villa, will not be our last.!! ' Escapism, peaceful,relaxing,' are just a few of the thoughts that immediately come to mind. We both feel totally 're-charged' after only a week ......will make it longer next time ? Our dear friends Jane and Janet are to be included in our thanks for directing us to this blissful oasis. Also the owners deserve a sincere 'thank you' for their kind hospitality throughout our stay. Can only describe it as 'memorable'
Owner comment
Delightful company .....return reserved.......more of the same ? ...Not a problem.!! Thank YOU for an interesting week C&M

Can't wait to go back

Just a quick note to thank you for another fab stay in your beautiful villa. As always it's very reassuring to have 'The Man - age - ment' at close quarters and to be able to share your Lanzarote haven. As you have both lived there for years your knowledge of the island is invaluable to anyone, can't wait to be back next year for more peace and quiet.
Owner comment
Thank you both ...We have your holiday bags in our vault (along with many others) ready for your return October next year or anytime sooner of course ??. Good luck with your new business, on current form , NO WURRIES, in the bag

It was very peaceful

We left a rainy UK and landed early evening to 24 degrees on our first visit to the villa. We hired a car as recommended and on arriving at the villa, which was only 10 minutes from the airport, the first thing that struck us when we opened the entrance door was 'wow'. We stood and took in the beautiful outside area which was all lit up around the large outside space, garden and pool. This area is brilliant and has a large covered seating area with a sofa and two chairs next to the pool, a lovely dining area next to the kitchen with a hot plate to cook all our food and sunbeds to relax in the sun. The owners had left a great welcome pack containing everything we would need to see us through the evening and also breakfast next day, including wine and beer which was a lovely touch. The couple welcomed us on arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and they recommended some great places to go and see/eat as they've lived on the island for a long time. Other than that they gave us complete privacy. The villa has two very large bedrooms and both are en suite and a small bedroom with twin bunks. We chose to sleep in the front bedroom which had an enormous comfy bed and breath taking views across the mountains, villages and the sea from the balcony. It was very peaceful whilst we were there and the weather was gorgeous too, so we hardly left the place other than to go to the large Spar at the bottom of the hill, which sells everything you need to eat and drink, with great fresh fish and meat counters. We found a lovely marina close to the villa which had a great selection of bars and restaurants. We will certainly miss having our evening G&T sat on comfy sofas staring at the boats bobbing in the marina. We can't wait to go back and are checking dates its available next year.
Owner comment
Wow' ....is our response also. We understand your wishes 'to be permitted to return'??? but this is a 'review to woo' ensuring a return for YOU. Thank you and delighted to confirm both bookings for May and September 2014. Look forward to meeting your family next time. BW from 'The Man-age-ment' aka .........the owners

We had a fantastic week at villa Madera, huge thank you to the hosts they made us feel very welcome, Villa and pool area was very relaxing just what we needed for our week in the sun, can't wait to book again. Regards, Stephen and Cathy
Owner comment
..thanks for the FIVE stars. Busy BUSY couple, no time to write more!! First Turkey in July..... then (by recommendation no less) our ' villa in Macher', in August .....Cyprus in October. AND THEN ???? Getting (belatedly) married in December? (Brr).. ..Hawaii in the Spring (where else?) if dates overlap.....see you there. Your sincere and 'warm' wedding invitation on departure has been taken VERY seriously. Morning suit hired. Your generous arrangement of a 'limo from our LGW hotel ' ....tick ! Feel the reception will be as a 'Mad Hatter's tea party' ..putting Buck House in the shade. However ! An open top carriage ?? in December. Hot water bottles our suggestion.. Salutations UnoHoo x 2

The villa is just the perfect retreat

Wow! The past 10 days have flown by. The villa is just the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of life in the UK. It has all modern amenities yet remains 'quirky' The owners have obviously poured love into their home for years and made this villa 'so special'. They are close by but never intrusive, respecting always your privacy. Together they represent a bottomless source of information and support, willing and able to share their 30+ years of experience. As for the villa it is simply stunning and sooooooo much better than that, it makes a perfect playground for any who set out to ENJOY their holiday. (Sadly some would seek only to destroy the fun of others!!) We are leaving now and it's a bitter pill. We will miss terribly breakfast outside by the pool. The kindness and attention by the owners is somewhat unique nowadays. We have booked for two weeks next year and cheerfully await our return to this little paradise. Footnote . We booked this holiday way back the beginning of this year and constantly checked the Internet for updated information by way of reviews (good AND bad). Could not find a single negative .....obviously there were none.
Owner comment
Was delighted to be able to ear mark your preffered dates for 2014 .....as you now 'No easy task' given our full calendar ......Same as this year then (give or take a day) 30th July - 9th August. Request from the owners .......get those flights confirmed a.s.a.poss

We have all had a fantastic holiday

Many thanks for a lovely stay here in your simply wonderful villa. We have all had a fantastic holiday, made all the better by your fantastic villa and truly EXCEPTIONAL hospitality.

Stunning it says Stunning it is

Safely home and rushing to get into print. First time visitors and not nearly long enough We have just spent what was planned to be a simple 'break' at the villa. It turned out to be nothing less than perfect for Mark and I with our 2 children (10&12) constantly entertained. 'Stunning it says Stunning it is' private, peaceful and views to die for. The weather was superb ,dawn to dusk, with a constant 'breeze' to ensure we didn't boil. Just burn a little. The pool was in all day use as was the wonderful pool lounge and BarBQ. 'Henry' ,cat, ensured continuous companionship for the girls. We visited so many local spots ( courtesy of the owner's recommendations). Picking out the Asadero restaurant and for a real fun day 'Rancho Texas' amusement park was a must do. The villa facilities were spotless with everything for the modern housewife i.e washing machine and (my favourite) dishwasher. If we ever needed help or advice , The owner was, unobtrusively, moments away with nothing too much trouble and his knowledge of people and places incredible. We were even introduced over drinks and nibbles round the pool to the the island consul and Spanish chief of police. Nice. One sad note which we feel obliged to mention. Our attention was drawn by the owner, included in his visitor book, to a lengthy (and very tedious) printed off review of this villa from the Internet. If you find it ? quite amusing from some sad people. Believe us - the owners all sparkle. If you are thinking of visiting we found making a booking for our return not easy. Very few spaces in 2014. Recommendation enough.
Owner comment
Thank you Karen ...extend our best wishes to 'Mark' (Victor) and the girls. Noted your stay 10th - 17 July ........similar dates set aside for next year ......just confirm flights (NO HURRY ??????)

This holiday exceeded every expectation

We have all had an absolutely fabulous time staying in your lovely villa. Weather lovely. Owners perfect hosts. It seems nothing was too much trouble and on hand for any assistance wanted. We are really hoping to come back SOON. This holiday exceeded every expectation. Daughter Phoepe adds 'Henry puss was my favourite and can't wait to cuddle him again.'
Owner comment

We intend to return

We are staying at Villa to rest and relax for a week. We picked up a hire care (Omnicars) at the airport. There was no waiting, no queues just a simple exchange and within 15minutes of landing we were on our way.The instructions to get here were straightforward and the supermarket is enroute, so we were able to stock up on essentials with no bother. We have stayed on Lanzarote before- using hotels and other villas. But this is one we intend to return to as it ticked all our needs. I am sitting by the pool now, having been for a swim most days. Its not huge but we don't need a workout in the heat!. The outside spaces are plentiful with loungers for sun worshippers and squashy sofas and armchairs for quiet relaxation. Inside the bedrooms are comfortable and the ceiling fan in the main bedroom is ideal for enabling a restful sleep. The kitchen has everything we need, cooker is clean, dishwasher, fridge and plenty of cutlery and crockery including things suitable for use by the pool. There is a book and DVD library. The free wifi is a bonus but don't expect the same speeds as you might get in say a UK city. It works well enough for emails and to check out the local restaurants. We have found an excellent place for lunch in Puerto Calero (Per Gusto). Many thanks to the owners who are available for advice if required. We will be reluctant to leave but we are already looking at booking our return visit.
Owner comment
Thank you from The Man - age -ment. The new ceiling fan came just in time for a return to our more usual glorious weather. Note you docked a star ?. No doubt because the scones Anne made for you went stale quickly in the HEAT. Thanks for the re- book !! therefore simply 'adieu' tomorrow......Until November . Adding you now to our ever lengthening 'encores' list

This villa and its owners lived up to its brilliant reviews

We were a first time visitor to this villa and chose to stay here after carefully reading the reviews of various villas on the island. We weren't disappointed and this villa and its owners lived up to its brilliant reviews and then some. It was a peaceful oasis away from the noise surrounding other villas we have previously stayed in, which have been situated on 'complexes' and which come with the inevitable unwanted noise from close neighbours. This is a detached villa situated halfway up a mountain, providing a number of suitable options for those wishing to sit in the sun and also for those wishing to sit out of the sun in comfort. The bedrooms are large and offer extensive views of the island and the beds are also extremely comfy. The downstairs offers every convenience needed in this undoubted 'home from home', and the 'piece de résistance' is without doubt the good quality, large size, comfort and sheer flexibility of the outside, eating, seating, cooking area - there are no white plastic sunbeds or chairs in this villa I'm happy to report. We have booked again for October and cant wait!
Owner comment
Thanks BUT think a little bit of sunstroke lingering ?? .....senior moment ? you stayed in MAY 2013 but and confirm your re book is September ....SO DON'T BE LATE !!

We were recommended this villa by friends and wow we were not disappointed. It is a tranquil oasis with panoramic views. The owners are lovely people who clearly take a lot of pride in the maintenance of the property. We had a fantastic holiday and can't wait to return.

Yet another lovely visit

Well we're back on here again, thanks to yet another lovely visit. The Man-age-ment continue to provide a warm and welcoming environment, whilst lurking politely in the background to ensure privacy is maintained when required. The villa is as beautiful and every bit as much of a 'second home' as we remember, with space aplenty and views to die happily for. Peace and quiet are the order of the day, with plenty of fridge(s) space available for food, wine and beer; with the attractive exterior offering a relaxing environment to lazily spend your time. We're counting down the days until our return later this year, very much looking forward to the good times we encounter at VM. Until we return, Si and Shez. P.S. Thanks to a visit from my family whilst in Lanzarote we moved out into the Costa Calero. I can say we complete sincerity that Lawrence would be considered very much the teenage rebel in comparison with the hotel patrons; he is the epitomy of the adage 'Young at heart'.

You won't be disappointed

We've stayed here a couple or three times a year for several years now. Unlike other villas we've stayed at, the owners lovingly upgrade both the interior and exterior of this already beautiful property, year on year. The villa has good quality and comfortable seating areas outside, to accommodate those who wish to be either in or out of the sunshine. It is spotless, has big comfortable beds and comes with every mod con you could possibly wish for. What makes it unique, is that it also comes complete with the charming owners who are on hand to help and advise, or, who disappear into the background when you need privacy. Don't take my word for it - read the other reviews and then try it for yourself - you won't be disappointed.

We will definitely be returning

On arrival we were provided with essentials such as water, tea, coffee, Cava! Which was a lovely touch. The outdoor facilities are superb, ample terrace space for enjoying the sun, great outdoor barbeque / eating area, fantastic heated pool which is a good size. The outdoor lounge is perfect for relaxing in the evenings, shaded from any breeze and with a patio heater , we hardly spent a moment indoors. When we did however there was a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, lovely big airy comfortable ensuite bedrooms. The amazing artwork of the host adds the perfect finishing touches. The management find the perfect balance of attentive owners offering advice and hospitality to help you enjoy the Island but leaving you in privacy to enjoy your holiday. We will definitely be returning.

Everything we had hoped for and a bit more

We have spent a splendid family week here. Everything we had hoped for and a bit more. The villa provided us with a homely (with a touch of luxury) base for trips around the island. The advice from the owner of the villa about what to see was great and ajusted exactly to our taste ('get out and see the vistas and life of Lanzarote'). Five people (4 adults and a teenager) fitted in nicely, and the pool was a hit! We also took the advice of where to rent a car - and it worked out well. Absolutely recommended!
Owner comment
learning of your other adventures (scary stuff !!) This invasion by Danes was a real education. The Scottish flavour blended nicely too. I'll drink to that with a wee dram. SKAL

Charming villa with privacy, peace and great views

An unusual quirky but charming villa with privacy, peace and great views, stayed here with friends 24/1/13 for 9 days. The owners gave us great recommendations for various restaurants, sightseeing and omnicar car rental where you can email driving details so that on arrival forms are ready to sign and off you go.(from baggage collection to car to villa 25 minutes tops fantastic) Great weather last 7 days pushing 80f. The owner is a true gentleman,great advice and any problems quickly resolved best wishes to him and his wife for the coming year. Kind regards Alan and friends

This villa is simply unbelievable for it's comfort, views and privacy

From Keith and Dorothy Sutton North Island NZ Stayed 1st - 10th December 2012: On a grand tour of Europe we left New Zealand in November and whilst in Spain were recommended to take an excursion to the Canary Islands ( of which we knew nothing). We were told Lanzarote was 'the most incredible' of the islands and friends in UK told us about this villa and being 'the only place to stay' !! Following a magical 10days we are now with our friends in England for Xmas and have not stopped talking about (and thanking them for recommending) the use of your villa and Lanzarote. We were 'warned' about 'The Man - age - ment' with their meticulous eye to detail but we were totally unprepared for the help and kindness to EVERY question. As possible visitors will see in other reviews, this villa is simply unbelievable for it's comfort, views and privacy. At our age we cannot say if we will pass this way again but pass on our comment to one and all 'A thing to do before'..... Etc etc Thank you again for the highlight of our 2 month holiday to Europe

This proved to be the dream holiday

From Oliver and Danielle Turner and family Essex Stayed 13th Dec - 3rd Jan 2013: By reading most of the reviews we had every confidence we were going to have a lovely Xmas New Year holiday. On arrival the ' Man - age - ment' were exhausted from yet another round of upgrades and everything was pristine. Visitors should also note the convenience of EVERYTHING when staying here. Airport, shops, excursions, medical facilities, fuel are just a few of the essentials of life ON THE DOORSTEP it felt. With fabulous weather, holiday home and hosts this proved to be the dream holiday prayed for after the seemingly forever grey skies of Essex. Our third trip to Lanzarote and third time lucky finding this place. We added our comments to the reams and reams of comments in the visitor book. Sadly we were at a loss to say something not already expressed. This opportunity to say 'thank you again' and SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER !!

The Villa was just perfect

Being back here our Holiday seems such a long time ago but feel assured we had a very relaxing and enjoyable 10 Days, The Villa was just perfect even though the pool didn’t seem to get up to Temperature (Only Anthony complained!!) we found the weather (Warm enough for us!!) more than kind. The Island and its Beaches were some of the best we have ever visited, the Volcano’s and the Sunsets were amazing not to mention Shopping!! (Went abit wild!!) Restaurants - well what can I say (a strict diet was a must on our return) It was lovely to meet you both on our arrival and your hospitality was second to none. Anthony was so sad to leave Henry behind who made the villa seem like a home from home. Sorry we never left a message in your book this was not intentional but we had business problems back here which Andy was trying to sort by phone on our day of departure which kind of took over and cut the Holiday feel good mood short. Been showing photo’s and recommending your Island and Villa and indeed yourselves to all our friends (and some strangers!!!!) so feel assured your 5* are well and truly deserved and you are now in our book of places to revisit.

The holiday we wished would never end!

The holiday we wished would never end! This is a place I would be proud to call home, with a clean and beautiful interior only surpassed by the fantastic exterior set up that offers an outdoor lifestyle us Mancunians can only dream of. The villa looks gorgeous at night, with a stylish covered area encapsulating comfortable seating that enables you to extend the day and maximise your holiday. Furthermore the location offers peace and quiet yet you never seem to be too far away from a number of excellent restaurants and areas of outstanding beauty; with the weather enhancing the experience. The warmth of the environment is matched by the hosts, who welcomed us like old friends during our October break and were on hand to offer giggles and tourist advice whenever required. We’re counting down the days until our next visit in 2013 and can’t wait to see you both. Si and Shez. P.S. Shez is currently wondering what she can sell in an effort to permanently reside here, so I’d be prepared for some begging and pleading for whatever it takes to allow her to stay!

A rare response on the web from 'The Man - age - ment' and in addition to the personal 'thank you' (and then some!) by email. Regarding your PS ! ..........Her smile would certainly be a strong contender for our capitulation

It's been FABULOUS and GREAT FUN

Villa Madera - well what can we say that hasn't already been said, it's been FABULOUS and GREAT FUN. Having searched the internet extensively and read countless reviews of dozens of villas and stayed in many others we booked Villa Madera for our honeymoon. Our blissful 2 and a half weeks soaking up the sun was incredible. The attention to detail of the owners is second to none, nothing is too much trouble, it was perfect. The outside lounge is the perfect place for just chilling both during the day and in the evening, the pool is just the right size and depth for cooling off and the 'unique' water feature has to be seen to be believed. The whole outside space is designed to offer different areas to relax, to the point that we only really slept in the sumptuous bedroom. The kitchen is more than adequate for budding chefs and well supplied with enough pots, pans and utensils to prepare anything from a sandwich to a 3 course meal. The villa is situated in its own plot with fantastic views of both the Lanzarote landscape and across to Fuerteventura. The regular visits of Henry the cat made it a real home from home for us. We loved this villa so much that we tried to book for our anniversay next year but were unable to do so as it is already fully booked so we have booked or 2014. We would sincerely like to thank the man-age-ment for a fantastic and memorable stay and can't wait to return. A comment in the guest book says it all 'We Came - We Saw - We Surrendered'

The property exudes fun

We stayed from 3-13 August 2012. The friendly owners run a highly efficient operation and booking was easy with excellent communication and flexibility offered by the Man-age-ment as they like to be called. The property exudes fun and the bedrooms are perfect. Great if you want to enjoy the best of Lanzarotte but want to avoid the hoards. Thank you from us all. Lydia Terry Carys and Ruby

A pleasure to have stayed there

If you are looking for a well tended garden and a welcoming comfortable villa then you need look no further. The outside space at Villa Madera is particularly impressive! The views are great and the pool is heaven! A very quiet location with excellent views of the surrounding area. A good base to explore all the island offers. The Man - age - ment are very generous hosts in every sense of the word. With lots of attention to detail in the Villa ie reading material; tv; beach towels. Lovely people with a lovely villa - a pleasure to have stayed there. We will be back!

Excellent accommodation

Excellent accommodation - perhaps a little smaller that the pictures make it look, especially downstairs in the living area. However as most living is done outdoors this in no way affected our stay. Slightly mental, but very nice host, could not do too much for us.

Our number ONE holiday spot

Having visited Lanzarote several times and made 'mistakes' in our choice of 'accomodation' ( villas, all inclusives...ugh!) My better half took careful aim before settling on your villa. Even then the reviews were 'just too good to be true' and we randomly selected two to contact by email (supplied by TheManagement). NOW totally confident, we made our booking. To all who might be considering staying there, we can only endorse the magic, the charm, the comfort and as the headline says 'the most stunning.......' As for the 'Man-age-ment' they really are the most genuine lovely people with a knowledge and help standard, second to none. We could not believe how much we could learn about this truly wonderful island. We will return often to Lanzarote ...our number ONE holiday spot...... and needless to say our ultimate destination will always now be your villa. A million 'thanks you's' from us both....until next time. PS You will need to get in early ...we nearly missed a rare slot in the availability

Beautiful retreat

Another relaxing holiday at the villa. Beautiful retreat in the hills above PDC and a stones throw from Puerto Calero, the best restaurants just a short distance away, what else could you want. Thanks L and C for making the trip special for us.

Lawrence and Cherrill have exceeded our expectations

We didn't think it was possible to improve the outside living area of the villa, but Lawrence and Cherrill have exceeded our expectations. The addition of the fabulous 'sail' covering the outside eating area is simply gorgeous and allows for eating in the shade, or with a litlle movement of the chairs, sitting in much needed sunshine. Also, the several new and large comfy cushions in the outdoor covered seating area made it all seem fresh and new. Thanks also to the lovely hosts for inviting us for a delicious meal at their home. Yet again we left the villa in a much better state than we arrived (!) and I certainly appreciated the brilliant weather and peace and quiet to recuperate from my operation. Looking forward to seeing you both in October x

What a fabulous property with stunning views!

We have recently stayed with you and wow what a fabulous property with stunning views! We would highly recommend a relaxing stay here with everything maintained to the highest standard. It is a real credit to the owners. We would recommend car hire to enable you to visit everything Lanzarote has to offer. Lanzarote is a great island to visit and everywhere on the island is kept very clean.

Simply stunning

My partner and I were looking for somewhere quiet to escape to at the beginning of March and settled upon a trip to Lanzarote. Far enough away from the UK to be warm but not needing to fly for 8 hours plus. I am a big fan of doing my homework and checking out reviews before I go and spend money on anything- villas included. I found countless villas with positive reviews but they all seemed a little soulless and were tightly packed along side each other in the popular resorts. We really wanted to get away and unwind and didn't want our peaceful holiday to be at the mercy of whoever our neighbours might be. Quite by chance I came across your villa and my interest was immediately piqued. Situated away from the throngs of holidaymakers on the coast, but little more than a 10 min drive from the airport and 5 mins from the harbour, the property is quite simply stunning. We arrived at Arrecife at 3pm, walked straight out of the airport to pick up our hire car (a car is must if staying here). Following Lawrence's clear directions( which had come amongst a flurry of lovely, funny and welcoming emails and pictures beforehand) we were at the villa within 15 mins. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely welcome pack of bread, tea, milk, eggs, wine in the fridge and a bottle of fizz on the table. What a welcome! It felt like we were visiting friends rather than some sterile holiday villa. A quick wander around the house reveals a huge and very comfortable master bed with pile of deep feather pillows, no hard crappy ikea mattresses here! The villa actually sleeps 5, but as there was only the 2 of us I can't comment on the comfort of the other beds but I'm pretty sure that they would meet my exacting standards too. There is a small but perfectly formed kitchen with all the utensils that you could need and a dishwasher...so no washing up! The villa gardens are beautiful, with plenty of different spots to sit out in the sun or there is the gorgeous outdoor living room which offers shade and has the addition of a patio heater for those cooler evenings when you still want to sit outdoors. Then of course there is the pool with it's special heating system! A lovely size but not too deep for kids. It has to be said that Lanzarote is a windy island and if the pool is left uncovered when not in use, the wind does whip the heat away, so it is important to heed Lawrence's advice and cover it up if you aren't using it!! Special mention has to go to Henry the cat, who quite frankly made my holiday (not to take away from your wonderful hosting Lawrence). Every evening Henry came and found me and settled down on my lap for a couple of hours...just like home from home. Lawrence was a very sensitive host. Aware that we had come away to relax and that we didn't need bombarding with information, he told us to pop up to their villa if we wanted advice. He was more than happy to offer suggestions of restaurants to go to or more importantly avoid and had all the inside information on the best places to visit and when was the best time of day to go in order to avoid all the crowds. He left us to it and gave us the privacy we required to just kick back and relax. He did invite us to visit his food stall in the market on the Sunday, and I must say we were treated like royalty, I actually had my nicest meal of the entire holiday courtesy of Lawrence! What else can I say, your villa is a wonderful testament to the love, creativity and hardwork of Lawrence and Cherrill, who have quite literally built the villa. If the pictures of the villa don't sell it to you then the scores of wonderful, personal reviews that previous occupants have left should. There are countless reviews from people that vist time and again and essentially are part of the family, this really says it all. Many thanks for a lovely break H&W

Feels like home

My first time on Lanzarote! And I enjoyed it very much! The villa is very nice en feels like home. The bedrooms are all very wel decorated, the beds sleep well. The livingroom and kitchen are just as nice. There is a very nice place where you can sit outside at the swimmingpool and another place where you can eat your breakfast, luch or dinner!The owners are very nice and charming and can give you excellent tips about lanzarote. I miss it already! From The Netherlands i send you my greetings and i hope to be back soon

Had a wonderful time

Had a wonderful time here in February, excellent location, very relaxing accommodation and genuinely friendly and helpful owners. Make sure you pick Lawrence's brain for ideas as he has unparalleled knowledge of island and things to see and things to avoid. Highly recommended.
