Casa Hibiscus is a modern, spacious, semi-detached holiday villa, situated in a well-maintained, private and gated complex of six holiday homes, which share a 3.5 x 5 meter solar-heated swimming pool.
Set just back from the sea in the traditional Canarian fishing village of Punta Mujeres, the holiday villa has been individually furnished to a high standard with families in mind, sleeping up to six guests, plus cots. Casa Hibiscus can be rented alongside the smaller Casa Lila, which is next door but one, making it perfect for families or friends travelling together.
Casa Hibiscus is entered from the private, fenced and gated terrace, leading straight into a light and airy open-plan living/dining room, which has been furnished in a simple, contemporary style and has WIFI, TV, DVD, basic satellite and CD/stereo. Laid out over three floors, the villa has stair gates fitted throughout to ensure peace of mind for guests with young children. The dining area has seating for six guests and a fully equipped, bespoke wood kitchen with granite worktop, large fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave, electric kettle, toaster, hand-blender and child-friendly plastic cutlery and tableware. Also on this floor there is a double bedroom with a modern, full bathroom next door with a hairdryer.
A skylight maintains the light and airy feel above the wooden-balustrade staircase, which leads to the first floor. Here, the south-facing master bedroom has a kingsize double bed, fitted wardrobes in the dressing area and a balcony, with table and chairs, overlooking the pool area and beyond to the sea and village. The third bedroom has a set of bunk beds and room for a travel cot. Between these two bedrooms is a second bathroom with walk-in shower.
In the basement there is a laundry area, patio drying area and a storage room that’s ideal for any water sports equipment.
Outside, the fenced and gated terrace, ideal for families with younger children, has two sun-loungers, dining furniture for six and a barbecue, making it perfect for al-fresco eating, whilst watching the children play in the pool.

It is also just 15 minutes’ drive from the popular Costa Teguise resort, with all its amenities, golden sand beach and water-sports.
This property is currently rented as a holiday home and can also be purchased as an income property.
ABOUT PUNTA MUJERES
A sleepy little fishing village where you can totally immerse yourselves in a Canarian cultural experience far away from the main tourist areas and mostly undiscovered by tourist operators. This is a hidden gem where you encounter only the local fishermen and a few more adventurous travellers. However due to this island being so small it is still only a 40 minutes drive from the main airport and in easy reach of all Lanzarote’s other great experiences.
Here you are off the beaten track as many tourists unknowingly bypass this hidden secret as they make their way to bigger name attractions, that are still nearby, such as Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes.
The Punta Mujeres coast line is lined with natural rock pools that fill at high tide and make the most wonderful locations for a relaxed dip with the family. The main natural pool is overlooked by ‘La Pescina’ the locals favourite tapas bar that serves local wines and freshly prepared traditional tapas dishes. There are also stunning small sandy coves to be explored.
There are a surprising number of little supermarkets dotted around the village, Las Rosas – the bakery and a good selection of restaurants such as Palenke which often offers live Spanish entertainment and has a wood fired grill that produces some good food,
Many locals have built their houses as close to the sea as possible, creating small alleyways and cul-de-sacs where homes look out over the sea. One or two houses almost blend in and disappear altogether, as they are constructed of volcanic stone. There are numerous pretty terraces and balconies, painted the traditional blue that once denoted the dwelling of local fishermen.
Further along the coastline the village reveals the remnants of an old gofio mill as well as a small muelle or harbour. A further echo of Punta Mujeres sea-faring past.
Punta Mujeres benefits from a good deal more protection than other parts of the coastline, thanks to the rocky hills behind it, these were formed by old lava flows from Monte Corona, the biggest and oldest volcano on the island. With your back to the sea, Monte Corona is very visible. As is all of the badland or ‘malpais’, the lava covered land surrounding the volcano. The tunnels which form the Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes were all created by the eruptions which emanated from here.
