About Deborah

Castillo del Mar was a neglected taberna when we took it over, and after working with great local craftsmen & builders for almost five months, we refurbished and transformed it, added a pool, and it was complete to enjoy for holidays. My family and I have shared many wonderful times here and have many treasured memories of Castillo Del Mar and I hope you do too?

Deborah purchased this villa in 2006

Why Deborah chose Haría

Castillo Del Mar is located in one of the few unspoiled fishing villages left on the Island of Lanzarote. If you want to experience the real Lanzarote and the true Canarian way of life, then choosing to stay here offers you just that. A simplistic lifestyle, where young and old come together in the evenings and in the daytime fishing and swimming in the cool Atlantic sea pools are an everyday way of life. The village is virtually unspoiled by tourism and is an ideal escape and somewhere to totally relax. From the local fishing boats to the local farmers who manage to cultivate the dry land and produce traditional Canarian potatoes. The unique sea swimming pools are an ideal way to cool off in the mid day sun as they stretch all along the shore line in the village. You can eat great tapas and drink local wines at (La Piscina) tapas bar by the sea pool and enjoy excellent food at the sea front restaurant 'Sol y Lunas'', especially the fresh fish! Palenki's Restaurant is another unique find, where locals gather and make their own music and evening entertainment, singing traditional Canarian songs. Enjoy staying in a traditional rustic fishing village and explore the rest of the Island at your leisure! If you decide not to hire a car, there is a bus service that runs through the village.

What makes this villa unique

Punta Mujeres is away from mass tourism, which means the prices are a fraction of other resorts on the Island. You can get a fresh coffee at the mini market for only one euro and a glass of wine at Paenki's Restaurant / tapas bar is only 1.50 euro. All the restaurants in the village offer fresh fish at reasonable prices compared to other resorts, which makes it great value and your holiday money goes a little further! Plenty tourist attractions are close to the village including the beautiful town of Haria 'Valley of Thousand Palms' only a short 5 minute car drive away in the mountains. Offering a great Saturday morning market selling local produce and crafts. Punta Mujeres offers you the unique experience of staying in a traditional Canarian village with all the necessary amenities within walking distance. There are three mini supermarkets all within walking distance. Not to mention all the beautiful walks that you can enjoy while staying in the village. One in particular takes you along the shore line and head land to the 'Jameous Del Agua' a very famous attraction on the Island. Watching the sun glistening on the sea as you sit by the ocean takes your breath away and makes Punta Mujeres a very special unspoiled jewel on the Island of Lanzarote.

Serene and idyllic setting and superb villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived out of season, the weather was perfect for us and the villa met all of our expectations. The location was quiet and peaceful but at the same time accessible to a wide range of facilities and other resorts if you want to visit them. The villa was really well appointed, lovely furnishings and comfortable in every way. A lovely pool complemented the villa, hours were spent by the pool with a good book. Definitely as the brochure describes it and definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very clean well presented Villa. We had a fantastic week staying here. Friendly locals. We recommend hiring a car as there are many places worth a visit. Visiting the live volcano a must, it was less magical day out. We went with twin one year olds & Deborah accommodated us with two cots & high chairs. Thank you Deborah for letting us have an amazing holiday.

Home from home - what more can you ask for?

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in a quiet village with easy access from the airport and room for parking. It was clean, spacious and extremely comfortable allowing me to relax fully during my stay. The pool with the spacious terrace was an added bonus. Will definitely be returning next year. Thank you

Off The Beaten Track

  • 5 of 5

Set in a sleepy traditional village of Punta Mujeres our quaint two bedroomed apartment had everything we could wish for a real "home from home." Worth a visit for the roof terrace alone with views of the azure blue sea to the nearby mountain ranges. The welcome pack when we arrived was most welcome.

Punta Mujeres in the north - east of Lanzarote stands in stark contrast to the well know tourist sports of Punta Del Carmen, the good news is that you can still find uncrowded spots off the beaten track.

The north east of the island is entirely removed from the rest of overcrowded holiday spots of Europe in more than just geography. It's a barren rock with isolated beaches and absolutely nothing going on: all there is to do is relax with the elements and eat super-fresh fish.

The neighbouring village of Arrieta about 15 minutes walk, or short drive, there are plenty of restaurants and a larger supermarket with a lovely long stretch of beach with a tapas bar right on the beach, serving the best Mojito's and fish on the Island!

My husband rented a bike there, very reasonable priced for the week. Cyclists and hikers will love the challenge of taking on the near by mountain ranges.

We had a wonderful holiday, can't wait to go back and explore the island further. We came home refreshed and recharged.

Not Great

  • 2 of 5

The first thing to point out is that this property is not a 3 bed villa as advertised but is in fact a 3 bed apartment.

There were some positives with the via which were the pool which our children enjoyed, a well stocked kitchen and large fridge freezer enabling self catering and 3 en-suite bathrooms.

However this was outweighed by the problems which included a serious problem with cockroaches (I killed 15 small ones and captured a further 6 in the villa during our stay - I can provide photos if needed), a lack of air conditioning (owner said not needed we should just ventilate using windows) which led to us spending 40 euros of our own money on fans due to ourselves and our 2 young children being too hot and outside noise (I hope the new guests enjoy the fans) and noise from the building and the surrounding area from neighbours sometimes through till 5:30 am in the morning ! A couple staying in one of the studios 2 floors above denied making any noise during their stay yet when they left and we had a family staying immediately above us only one floor above things were significantly quieter overall.

The neighbours were not friendly in our experience at all either with a frosty reception encountered in the local eateries, the immediate neighbours in the street also making noise to the early hours and leaving their dogs barking in the gardens all day and all night. I had to put up with my 2 young children being in tears throughout the day and night due to their lack of sleep. Once we are able to close the windows due to the fans things improved. The staring from a woman opposite the villa from her garage directly through one of the villa windows for 15 minutes solid is possibly one of the strangest experiences I have encountered on holiday anywhere I have visited. Parking is also awful. It is a narrow street and the locals are not considerate parkers. On several occassions I had to park a street away due to no spaces. On the day of the departure we were leaving at 7am and decided to park very briefly on the yellow box outside the villa so we could load our cases back in to hire car this led to 2 of the neighbours coming and shouting at us in the street. Very welcoming !

Thankfully the days away from the villa and the village were very enjoyable and the attitude from the locals even in close villages like Arrietta and elsewhere was fine and the holiday was great. However I would never book this villa again and would not recommend.

Owner's Response: All I can say is that I disagree with this review and the many excellent reviews I have received over the years about the beautiful 3 bedroom villa (apartment) reflect this. I am sorry that this guest and family did'nt have a good holiday, but I sincerely believe it was nothing to do with what we provided. From the moment this guest arrived, there was complaints several times a day constantly. We attended to every one of the guest's issues and complaints, including bringing fans. Due to the high level of complaints, I offered the guest a refund for their second week so the family could find alternative accommodation that would suit them better, (as we didn't know what else we could do to assist them any further?) Strangely enough, they never got back to me about this offer and the complaints stopped? If it was that bad staying there, I would have assumed they would have accepted the offer? I am only sorry that I didn't take a damage and extra cleaning deposit from theses guests, considering the disgusting state the place was left in. (I have the photographs as proof). They even managed to pull the leg off the dining table, which is a solid glass table. All other guests have always been respectful, so I've never had to take a damage deposit. Sadly, that may now have to change. I am, however, delighted that they will never return to my beautiful villa. After many extra hours of cleaning by my excellent cleaner Tina, the villa is back to normal and the dining table has been repaired so future guests can enjoy and appreciate their surroundings. Sadly you cannot please everyone all the time!

Punta Mujeres is one of the few unspoilt traditional fishing villages left on the Island of Lanzarote. The village offers you a change to be away from mass tourism and the madding crowds and situated next to the lovely village of Arrieta, in the district of Haria. Although a quiet village, restaurants, a tapas bar by the sea and three mini supermarkets are all within walking distance. The tranquil setting and pace of life will allow you to totally unwind and get away from it all.

There are several good restaurants in the village, 'Lunas y Sol' fresh fish restaurant right by the sea (daytime only), Palinki's traditional restaurant / tapas bar, (great for steaks), El Lago, fish restaurant, en route to Arrieta and a tapas bar in the centre of the village by the sea. (A must visit to experience the ambience of the locals and sample their homemade tapas and wines) As well as mini supermarkets, cafes and a delightful pizza parlour. The famous Jameous Del Agua is close to the village and it's possible to walk to it along the head land. Saturday morning markets are very popular in the delightful town of Haria which is a short drive away in the hills. Sample local organic produce and crafts as well as traditional music.

Natural sea swimming pools, unique to Punta Mujeres, run along the shore line throughout the village (safe for children) and very therapeutic. The nearest long sandy beach is around 2klm in the village of Arrieta with a tapas bar right on the beach and play areas for the children. The beautiful white sands blown over from the Sahara, have formed beautiful beaches situated near to the village of Orzola, (around a 10 minute drive north from the property). The hidden lagoon is among them, and if you want to experience total tranquillity, well worth a visit. A lava fall out formed a safe lagoon with warm still waters, ideal for snorkelling.

Visit the local Aloe Vera houses in Punta Mujeres, where you can sample and purchase the unique properties of the plant that grow on the Island.

Walkers & Cycle Paradise: This part of the Island is very popular for walkers and cyclists.

For the more adventurous, take a walk up in the hills to Haria then drop down to the west side of the Island to Famara with it's long stretches of beautiful sandy beaches with breath taking views.

One of the most popular tourist attractions, 'The Mirador Del Rio', is in the district of Haria, offering stunning views of the Island of La Graciosa. Or try a visit to the amazing Cactus Gardens in the village of Mala, again a short drive away from Punta Mujeres. Offering thousands of species of the most amazing flowering cactus.

Golf details: The nearest golf course is situated in Costa Teguise, around 15 minute drive away. A beautiful 18 hole course with immaculate greens, buggies available and a friendly restaurant.

There is plenty to see or just simply chill & enjoy the Canarian Sunshine.
