About Roy Lewis

We are a mature couple and have lived permanently in Lanzarote for 15 years.

We spend a lot of time working around our property but make sure that we are never in the face of our guests.

In this way we make sure that our clients get the best of attention and comfort with an assurance that if any problems should occur we are on hand to put things right or help. We are non smokers and ask that our clients are the same.

Roy Lewis purchased this apartment in 1980

Roy and Sheila, as before were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Beautiful location, clean and inviting apartment. We love the warm pool and all the flower borders.

Friendly, safe, sunny and incredible relaxing.

Wow ! What a fabulous find.

I booked this as a 50th birthday treat to myself and what a treat it was.

Roy was at the airport to greet me and take me to the apartment ( for a small charge), since I had no transport and didn't fancy organising a coach ticket; although they are fairly easy to book.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by Sheila and shown around the cute but well equipped, cool and clean apartment.

For the duration of my stay, I had free and totally private access to the pool and was left to do my own thing, although both Roy and Sheila were around should I need them. They did check to ask if I would like a lift into town when they were going, on several occasions and I gratefully accepted on one.

The town of Playa Blanca is within an easy 20 minute stroll or a longer lovely walk along the seafront ( recommend hiring a car if you ar less active). Alternately, there is a small supermarket which stocks basics and 4 types of restaurant, within a 10 minute walk if you are feeling lazy.

I would very highly recommend this place and plan to book again....I only wish I didn't have to share this info as I would love to keep it a secret! 😊😊

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a lovely quiet residential area which was perfect for us. 10 mins walk to seafront and a small selection of bars and restaurants and about 30 mins further to the main town/harbour.

The views from the apartment are stunning. Sea views from the terrace and mountain views from the bedroom windows. Roy keeps the garden immaculate and it was a pleasure to sit in. The apartment is perfect for a couple. Good size bedroom with very comfortable bed and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Lovely bathroom and shower and perfectly adequate kitchen/living area with everything you could possibly need during your stay. Most importantly, the apartment was spotlessly clean.

Please don't be put off that the apartment doesn't have air con. We were a bit worried about it as we are always warm so worried we would be uncomfortable but the apartment is on the shady side of the house so doesn't get too warm inside and the fan provided in the bedroom was perfectly sufficient and kept us both comfortable.

We only made use of the pool once during our stay as we were busy exploring the island but oh my lord, it was beautiful like stepping into a warm bath. We wished we'd used it more!

Roy and Sheila were very welcoming hosts. On arrival we found they had left some essentials in the fridge for us as well as a bottle of wine. This was a lovely touch and very gratefully received.

We are looking forward to staying again in the future!

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Loved our holiday. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners Roy and Sheila who are a lovely couple. Our holiday got off to a perfect start thanks to the thoughtful welcome pack consisting of bread, milk etc. The apartment is spotlessly clean and spacious and is equipped with everything you need.

The pool and gardens were so peaceful and perfect for relaxing in the sun.

Lovely, well-equipped apartment close to amenities

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this apartment, which is ideal for a couple, with well-equipped kitchen. On arrival the fridge was stocked with essentials, which helped us to settle in quickly. The seating area at the front of the apartment is a lovely spot to have breakfast and morning coffee, with a lovely view to sea. The use of the owner's pool is a great bonus, with sunbeds and cushions also for a spot of sunbathing. The owners, Roy and Sheila are warm and welcoming and make every effort to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Within 10 minutes walk from the apartment are a number of restaurants and bars which we found to serve good quality food and drinks at a reasonable price. It is a good 35 minute walk into the centre of Playa Blanca, with lots of bars and restaurants along the way too. We got a taxi back at night from the centre which costs less than 5 euros. We would recommend this apartment, we ourselves would happily return. Having stayed in Playa Blanca many times, the area in which this accommodation is situated is in our opinion, the nicest part of the resort.
