Apartment in Playa Bastian, Costa Teguise, Lanzarote - Family Location, 3 mins to Beach, 2 mins to Shops, Bars etc
Beautiful 2 bedroom apartment, with 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies, a new kitchen area, Sky TV and Wi-Fi. Master bedroom with king-size bed is en-suite; the second bedroom has twin single beds and separate bathroom. The apartment is very safe and secure would suit families. It is situated on the first floor, approx 10 steps. The complex is private and mainly British families own the properties, some as holiday homes others living there. The apartment is set in beautiful well-maintained gardens, terraces and pedestrian walks straight on to the beach. It is very safe for children as there are no roads to cross to the beach.
Take a leisurely 10-minute stroll along the seafront promenade (with no traffic) to the left and you find yourself in the livelier ‘centre’ of the resort.
Take a leisurely 5-minute stroll along the seafront promenade (with no traffic) to the right and you will pass the King of Spain’s villa in the west to eastern end of Costa Teguise.
There are three swimming pools + baby pool, a restaurant, plus two pool bars offering drinks and lunch time snacks on the complex. The main pool is solar heated the other two smaller pools are heated during the winter months.
There are several lovely beaches and shops within a few minutes of the complex, including a supermarket with excellent bakery right across the road.
The Airport is approx 15 mins away and costs approx. 20 euros in a cab. There are banks and car hire very nearby as well.
The decor in the apartment is typical Spanish Villa style, as is the furniture. All bed linen, bath towels (not beach/pool towels) and kitchen utensils are supplied, and a cleaner visits regularly.
This apartment and location is superb, and very relaxing in an excellent climate. The complex has its own wifi which is adequate for some people; however we found having 2 teenage daughters that wifi is an absolute priority. So with this in mind we have installed Wifi for your use.

About the Owner
About The Owner
We are Mark and Helen and we have two daughters, Ellie who is 17 and Georgia who is 15. We are quite an active family and love sport. Helen and I both belong to a local running club and regularly run local races and approx two to three full marathons a year, both our children are good swimmers and belong to a local swimming club, we love being outdoors and are lucky that we live in Cornwall with beautiful beaches and lots to do outside. I moved to Cornwall from London in 1997 this is where Helen and I met as she had moved here some five years earlier from Leicester. It's a lovely place and when the weather is really bad then we just wish away the hours until we are back in lovely Lanzarote with the non stop sunshine, having said we are sporty, and that is " true" we also like a drop of wine!
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006
Why The Owner chose Costa Teguise - Teguise
We had been to Lanzarote several times and had fallen in love with the island, so we decided to buy a property in Costa Teguise, our favourite place. We are so pleased we did, other than the investment potential its a great place for us to spend holidays with the kids and our friends. The climate is great its very child friendly and safe, there are many good restaurants lovely beaches and really nice place just to sit in the sun and relax, it's the best buy we ever made. Our dream is that when the kids are grown up Helen and I will spend a few months of the year in Lanzarote and a few in Cornwall, so when its bad weather here we will hop on a plane to the sun, and when we get home sick hop on a plane back, 'well that's the plan!' you have to have dreams don't you ?
What makes this apartment unique
The great thing about our property is the location. Playa Bastian is a really lovely complex very safe and very clean, there are lots of British people who own places there and quite a few live there all year, so its a real home from home. Very very friendly we have made loads of friends on the complex and when we go out there its a bit like coming home after a long trip. We have often been out there and hardly left the complex all week, just being a bit lazy sitting around the pool or having a drink at Brendon and Sheelagh's pool bar, then stroll the 50 yards back to our apartment for a spot of lunch on the balcony looking out at the view of the Atlantic and thinking 'what a hard life this is!' Playa Bastian is thought to be one of the very best complexs in Costa Teguise - for me the best!

great location,sunny terrace. Mandy very helpful when boiler died. The only suggestion is an update of the china,glasses and cutlery. beds very comfortable as well
Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Apartment complex was in great location for beach, pools, restaurants, shops and buses. Great balconies to top up your tan.
The apartment was lovely. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Lovely, private balcony to enjoy lunch & a glass of wine!
Excellent location, can't wait to return.
Thanks to Helen & Mark for the use of your apartment.
Excellent, our holiday home in the sun!
Just back from our second stay in this apartment on Wednesday & we have already booked again for next year!
We love this complex, we have a 12 year old autistic son & the layout suits him, he knows where everything is here, he loves the large pool which is just a few yards away from the apartment, & it's never too crowded or noisy for him.
There is a great pool bar at this one run by Brendan & Shelagh, opens early & closes when the last one standing leaves, they do lovely snacks & have a fully stocked bar.
There is a small children's pool just next to the bar with loads of sunbeds & loads of space.
There are a couple of other pools on the complex, both a bit smaller however one has a restaurant next to it which does great tapas & meals.
The apartment has everything needed for a lovely relaxing holiday, two large bedrooms with lots of storage space, comfy beds, two bathrooms, one with a walk in shower, the other with a newly fitted bath/shower, both very clean.
The kitchen area is well fitted, electric hob, oven, microwave, large fridge freezer etc however to be honest, apart from making tea & toast we didn't really use it as the area is well covered with numerous places to eat, all tastes catered for.
The main room is nicely decorated, comfy settee, large flat screen tv, DVD & a godsend for anyone with kids is the recently fitted wifi which worked perfectly! (Thanks Helen & mark )
There are also two large balconys in the apartment so lots of space for relaxing in the sun.
Regulars to this area will know where to go, for first timers the beach is just a short walk to the bottom of the complex, there is a lovely prom which takes you to the main area of Costa Teguise, which is about 15-20 mins walk.
There is a taxi rank outside the entrance to the complex, costs about €3 to the main area, inc the square, Pueblo Marinero, which gets better each year.
It's a lovely square with a bandstand in the middle of it, has entertainment on every night, all around the square are bars & restaurants to suit every choice.
A short walk away is the large Cucharas beach, again with loads of bars & restaurants either end of it.
To end, we thoroughly recommend this apartment, great facilities, great location, the only downside is that we don't own it !!!
We arrived at this lovely home from home large two bed apartment to find it clean and well equipped.The main bedroom is spacious with a lovely bathroom and private balcony.The other bedroom was perfect for the children and another lovely bathroom next to this.The pool is about 50 metres away and sun beds were always available any time of the day.The pool bar was cheap and owned by a friendly British couple.The complex in my mind is in an excellent location with very good restauarants on your doorstep and a superb cafe/bakery and well stocked supermarket across the road.Playa bastian beach is at the bottom of the complex and from here is a lovely 10 min walk into the main square.I would not hesitate staying here again and is very good value for money.
mum and daughter holiday
We have stayed on Playa Bastian complex three times, first time at this apartment. Complex is well maintained and quiet with nice pool areas. There are plenty of restaurants locally and it is about a 10/15 minute walk into the town square, where again there is a choice of many restaurants.
The apartment itself was spacious, clean and comfortable. Both balconies were good suntraps and of reasonable size. There was the added bonus of a heater which for those chilly nights in March was very much appreciated.
However, while the main bedroom was very nice, the smaller in my opinion lacked drawer space.The wardrobe in same room also had a strong smell of "damp" so much so that my daughter had to remove her clothes from it.
Bathrooms in need of some new grouting.
However that being said we enjoyed our stay. All arrangements with Mark and Helen were dealt with promptly and professionally.Thank you for the use of your holiday home in the sun.

Activity and Interests
Playa Bastian beach is a 3 minute walk, and Las cucharas beach is a 10 minute walk, and many other beaches near by, Las cucharas is excellent for wind surfing/surfing all the beaches have shops and bars nearby.
Arrecife airport is 15 minutes in a cab and costs approx 17/18 euros.
Costa Teguise town is 10 minute walk from the complex, however there are all the amenities shops banks bars restaurants car hire and so on within a 2 minute walk. Timanfaya the only active volcano on the island is worth a visit, where your food will be cooked over craters in the ground, but don't worry the last eruption was 1736, there are many cacti gardens, also Camel rides and art galleries for those interested in the work of Caesar Manrique (Lanzarote artist / engineer / politician).
The temperature in Lanzarote never drops below 22 celsius and that's in Jan/Feb - in August it reaches 35C. There are only approx 14 days rain a year. Most of the supermarkets stock English tea and coffee, and changing pounds to euros is much the same all over the island. Most of the bars, shops and restaurants take major credit and debit cards. For more information once you are there, we leave an information folder in the apartment for your convenience, we ask you to leave this there for the next guests.
