About Karen Humphreys
Our names are Karen and Nigel Humphreys were live in the UK in North Staffordshire. We have owned our villa since 2004 and I visit it regularly thereby ensuring that the quality of its presentation is maintained. We are fortunate that the villa is serviced by people who live locally to it and they are always available if any issues arise.
Karen Humphreys purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Karen Humphreys chose Montaña Roja
We had been looking to buy a property in the Canary Islands for a number of years as it is a destination where we have taken many holidays. We looked at property on a number of the islands but were finally drawn to Lanazarote as we like the low key style of the island and appreciate the respect with which development has been controlled - particularly with regard to no roadside advertising which appears to now blight a number of other destinations. We especially like the area where the villa is located as it is on the quiet outskirts of Playa Blanca, but the centre is within a easy reach. We like to walk along the coastal promenade into town and enjoy the views across to Fuertaventura and inland with its backdrop of volcanoes.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa - Casa de Luz - benefits from its proximity to the coast and we enjoy a panoramic view from the upstairs terrace, where many hours are spent enjoying a long drink and watching the sunset. We appreciate its quiet setting and well planted garden. The garden has been a particular passion and has taken effort to establish from a blank canvas -it is now beginning to mature and provides an oasis style surrounding to the villa & pool. The villa provides comfortable outdoor and enclosed dining areas which can be separately enjoyed at different times of day. Overall the villa is a very comfortable base from which to enjoy your holiday and we have many visitors who now return annually. The villa enjoys a private setting but allows easy access to the central resort area.

Lovely villa. Quiet location. Beautiful outside area with lots of space and different places to sit and enjoy the sun. Lovely sea views from the terrace upstairs.
Casa de Luz
We had been recommended Casa de Luz by some friends who had stayed in a property close by, they thought it looked like the nicest villa around.
We wholeheartedly agreed. We especially loved the garden: such a perfect place to relax. The garden furniture was exactly our ideal, we loved all the wooden tables, chairs and loungers. The first few days were spent just winding down and enjoying the peace and quiet.
All of all the facilities in the villa worked perfectly and everything we could possibly want was there. All in all it had a real homely feel to it.
We thoroughly enjoyed the resort, quiet but easy access to the town and with nice restaurants closer by.
We very much hope to go back sometime in the future.
Beautiful villa with lovely sea & sunset views
Just returned from our 12 night stay in Karen's beautiful villa
It is an excellent location, it was so peaceful & quiet and not overlooked by anyone.
Could not have asked for a better location/place to spend our 30th anniversary
You are just metres from the sea and going to sleep/ waking up to the lovely sound of waves was lovely and you are only a 5 minute walk from row of some nice restaurants and couple bars and 2 small supermarkets
And it's only a 5 minute drive into Playa Blanca for the extra things if needed
The villa had everything that you could need for your break, from all the essentials to mats for beach and nets for fishing in the rock pools on sea front
Gardens and outside area just make it a perfect place to just relax and then there's a lovely heated pool to cool off in when needed ( which did often)
We already booked up to return next year as can not fault this lovely villa, counting the days 😎
Many thanks for some lovely memories

Thanks for such a lovely review - great to learn you enjoyed your stay so much. Karen.
Excellent villa and location
Villa superb - very well appointed, lovely comfy beds, spotlessly clean. Pool great and garden beautiful. Good shops, cafes and restaurants nearby, easy to get everywhere on the island. We had a fantastic time. Had no idea Lanzarote landscape was so dramatic and all the Manrique locations blew us away. Would happily return.
So pleased you had a great time in Lanzarote and that the villa lived up to your expectations - would be happy for you to return anytime.
Perfect Location. Perfect views. Perfect Privacy
We regularly stay in Playa Blanca. This home is superb. All details of the house are incredibly accurate . There are no silly rules Just common sense required re noise etc. We absolutely loved it
Thanks for your great review - really pleased you enjoyed the villa. We endeavour to make the villa a very comfortable base from which to enjoy a great stay in Playa Blanca and its lovely when people enjoy it. Thanks again.
