Our apartment is situated on a beautiful complex just outside the village of Playa Blanca. It's a one bedroom apartment in a great location overlooking a sandy beach. The apartment is on the ground floor and is accessed by steps leading to a private terrace with sea views. The complex has recently been refurbished to a high standard with well maintained gardens, pool bars and well stocked supermarkets. There are restaurants both on the complex or in the village which is just a ten minute stroll away.
The accommodation comprises a terrace with sunbeds and a table, chairs and parasol. Through patio doors there is an open plan living area with a sofa and chairs, TV and book cases. The kitchen and bar areas are equipped with everything you should need for your stay. The bedroom has twin singles that can be arranged to your liking and there is a wardrobe and a safety deposit box. The bathroom has been recently refurbished and is fully equipped with a walk in shower and a washing machine.
The apartment is comfortably furnished throughout and is in a fantastic location on this really well appointed and hugely popular complex. It's a great place to base yourself for exploring the island or just relaxing in the sunshine.

About the Owner
About Sue Anderson (or Robert Anderson)
I grew up in the village of Burnham in the south east of England. I'm a keen traveller and sun lover and have been enjoying the Canary Islands with my family since the 1980's. The apartment was a joint purchase with my sister way back in 1985 and is now shared by our two families.

Why Sue Anderson (or Robert Anderson) chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza
The apartment is jointly owned between my family and my late sister's family. We've had the apartment from new. The site was just being developed when we saw it first. We looked all over Lanzarote and then came back to this place as it was a really special location. Playa Blanca is a lovely village that's changed a lot since 1985 but hasn't lost any of it's warmth or charm.
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment benefits from a great location for the beach or the pool. It's on a really nice complex with beautiful gardens and lots of facilities. One of the best beaches in the village is only 100 meters away and the closest pool is less than 50 meters from the terrace. The complex is quiet and relaxing offering an ideal base for either exploring the island or just soaking up the sun.

No. 28 in March 2017. What a gem!
We stayed here for eleven nights in March 2017. The owners were very helpful before our stay and we found the apartment very well equipped and in an ideal location close to the beach and local amenities but nice and quiet. There is ample room for a couple, the kitchen is small but we managed to cook some nice meals with fresh fish bought from the harbour and veg and salad from a green grocers in town. Local supermarkets less than five minutes walk away sell freshly baked bread and croissants together with a wide range of ham and cheese so we enjoyed some lovely breakfasts sitting on the terrace which was sunny all day. There are also a wide range of restaurants within easy walking distance, most of which were very good. Clothes washing facilities in the apartment were very good, so we know next time not to bring so many clothes! All in all a lovely homely place!
Brian and Robins holiday at Flamingo Beach Apartmn
We really had a relaxing and enjoyable 2 weeks holiday. The property was so conveniently situated. A communal Pool on you doorstep and the lovely beach only a hundred yards away. Although the main bars / restaurants are in Playa Blanca ( only fifteen minutes stroll along the promenade) there are adequate places to eat and drink, all over looking the beach. When you walk along the promenade, pop in to the Irish Bar the 'Anvil' , just before the harbour. Good food and drink and reasonably priced. Also live music each night at 9.30pm. This apartment has a lovely small patio at the front and gets the sun all the day. Laying on the sun beds with a glass or two of wine and looking at the lovely colourful bourgonvillia! what else could you ask for. And Sue, we did water the plants!! The apartment was clean and well maintained and we would highly recommend this property , you will not be disappointed. We would love to return. Thank you Sue for all your help with our holiday.
Excellent value for money
We had a fantastic week at nos 28. It is clean, comfortable, very secure and is right by the beach. Being an end property also means that it has an extra window on the side which makes it brighter and well ventilated. Lovely to wake up in the morning and have a view of the sea from the patio. The owners are very easy to deal with and provide you with all of the information that you need well in advance. Would definitely recommend this for a relaxing week.
We found the apartment absolutely perfect, was very clean and in an amazing location close to the beach and also convenient for all the supermarkets and shops. The apartment itself had everything we needed and all helped to have an extremely relaxing holiday in a quiet location. Would not hesitate to book again
Quiet, comfortable, and the perfect holiday base.
The property is clean, comfortable and well-equipped. You can see the sea from the patio, and even though the bungalow is quite close to a pool and deck area, it's very quiet during the day. I was working for part of the stay, and was able to sit out on the patio throughout the day without any problem. The bungalow is just a couple of minutes' walk from the beach and a row of shops and restaurants, and it's about 1.5km along the promenade to the centre of Playa Blanca. If you walk the other way, away from Playa Blanca, the coastal path goes all the way to a point - it's about 3km to the lighthouse, and a wonderful, blustery stroll. The local shops are quite limited in terms of fresh fruit and veg etc, so if you're planning to cook, I suggest getting a car and going to a bigger supermarket (I stopped off at the one in Macher on the way from the airport and stocked up there). But if you like to eat out, there are plenty of great options.
I heartily recommend this property - the owners are incredibly easy to deal with, with great communications, and it's in a great location. The listing is a very accurate reflection of the property itself.

Many activites are available on the island such as surfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, tennis and golf. There are miles of golden sandy beaches and many places of interest to visit. There are excellent restaurants in Playa Blanca offering a wide selection of cuisine. It is approximately 15 mins walk to the village along the sea front on a recently built promenade.
Buses are available from Playa Blanca to Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen, and many tours can be booked if required from the main reception. Ferries run from Playa Blanca harbour to Fuerteventura and there are also several boat trips available from this harbour.
