“Not suitable for young children”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The property is 40 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes to the beach. Pool is too deep, even for adults, definately no good for young children or weak swimmers. There was no water in the pool for the first day. On the second, it was filled but took 2 days to heat up. Then the heater broke and the pool was too cold. The weather was cloudy every day but sunny down the South of the island, so we drove South every day - Maybe it isin't always like that. Good value though, if you don't mind driving. The house was very clean. The owner was very nice but it would have been nice to have more privacy (He or the pool cleaner was around nearly every day) No pillows on the beds. The local restaurant (About 5 minute walk) is cheap and has good food. Restaurant owner has no English though, so be prepared.

Lamentably the painting of the swimming pool was late. This one is an unforseeable situation that we could not solve. In Villa RocaMar there are pillows in all the beds and there was supplied the client a special pillow that he requested. I believe sincerely that his opinion comes induced because of the bad weather in Lanzarote during his stay. The privacy in the Villa is absolute. If in this case the owner and the specialist were several times in the house to solve as rapidly as possible the matter of the swimming pool. We are sorry sincerely that the client has not enjoyed so much of his stay in our villa.

“Beautiful and relaxing”

Beautiful villa with bonus of a heated swimming pool! Didn't actually go anywhere for five days just soaked up the sun and caught up on all those books you never seem to have time to read. Lovely added touches such as lots of little extras in the cupboards (spices, teabags, matches, candles -even fairy laundry liquid!) and the most fanatstic artwork on the walls - all painted by the lovely Pepe who along with his equally lovely wife Cati make this such a perfect holiday villa.

“If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing break try this villa.”

We spent a week here with no car and never got further than the next village, Arrieta, which is about a 40 minute walk away. The villa has a good feel to it, is well equipped and the private pool is a bonus. The owners are very helpful and approachable and reply to emails promptly. In Punta Mujeres there are two restaurants and two shops. We only used one of each but would recommend them both, the Restaurante El Palenke where the food is good and the service excellent and the shop furthest from the villa which is well stocked and the staff are friendly. Arrieta provides more choice for eating out and has a good beach. We swam in the sea near the villa where there are a few safe areas. If we were to stay for more than one week then we would probably have needed a car to see further afield. The wi-fi connection is a bit hit and miss so if you can't live without it you may be frustrated. In summary we had a great holiday in this villa and would recommend it to anyone looking for an out of the way place.

“Fantastic house, pool, paintings, area and people :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have stayed in Punta Mujeres before and saw this property right on the seafront and wanted to stay there. The house itself is exactly as the photographs on here, and the very numerous paintings around the house gave it a very cosy homely feel - all painted by the
owner :) The pool was clean and caught the sun all day until late afternoon. The kitchen was very well equipped (although no kettle) - with a most appreciated dishwasher and washing machine!

The house had TV that we could get programmes on in English which was great in the evenings - with some very new films being shown that we haven't seen :)

We travelled with 3 teenagers and had a car for the duration of our stay, but the car was mainly used to get to 'La Garita' - the lovely sandy beach in Arrieta, and the more locals beach up near Orzola. There are two shops nearby selling fresh bread and other essentials, and two very close restaurants - we highly recommend Bar Palenke and ate there a number of times, as well as calling in for drinks and enjoyed the friendly family atmosphere.

If you want the nightlife then don't come to Punta Mujeres! If you want a 'beach/sunbathing' holiday or for a great base in the north of Lanzarote to explore the whole island (Playa Blanca only an hour away in the car) then you wouldn't do much better than Villa RocaMar.

The owners are very friendly, and always reply to emails promptly - very accommodating with any requests we had, met at the villa on arrival and even arrived on our final day to make sure all was OK and that we knew what to do with the keys :)

Would we recommend this holiday rental? Absolutely.
Would we return here? We have already booked again for 2013 - can't get a better recommendation than that!

“Näher an's Wasser geht's nicht...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
Google Translation

Wer abseits des Touristenrummels den Aufenthalt in einem kleinen Ort ohne großartiges Nachtleben bevorzugt, ist hier richtig. Mehr Meer geht nicht! Der Blick von der Terrasse auf die See ist unbeschreiblich schön, Gezeiten, Wellen und Meeresrauschen sind allgegenwärtig und bieten eine schöne Basis zum Entspannen. Der Pool hat eine brauchbare Größe und ist beheizt. Die Villa ist von den symphatischen Eignern Cati und Pepe liebevoll eingerichtet und ausgestattet worden, deutsches TV gibt's auch. In der Küche sind alle üblichen Gerätschaften vorhanden, wir haben nichts vermisst. Die hübsch gestalteten Schlafzimmer liegen in der ersten Etage über Eck nebeneinander und haben einen gemeinsamen Balkon mit Meeresblick. Das gesamte Haus ist hell und freundlich. Im Ort gibt es kleinere Läden für die Dinge des täglichen Bedarfs, einige Restaurants, fußläufig erreichbar, runden das Angebot ab. Tip: Google Earth - Street View!

Fazit: Wer Ruhe und Entspannung sucht, ist hier gut aufgehoben. Wir kommen wieder!
