About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
A real home from home! We relaxed the moment we arrived at Casa Kiruba. The location was perfect, just 10 mins from the airport in a taxi. The accommodation was divine, lots of room and storage and everything within the property was immaculate but inviting to use - it felt like our own holiday home!
The facilities were superb, excellant privacy and security on the complex. The pool was beautiful and very private.
The town centre was as near or as far as you wished it to be - you could walk for a meal or to the beach within 10 minutes or you could go to the local spar and BBQ as we did! (there is also a local fishmonger). We had a wonderfully relaxing week (and we took 2 small children).
We are recommending Casa Kiruba to friends and family and will be booking again ourselves - thank you, we loved it!

We had a very relaxing week in a comfortable, well equipped apartment, in ideal location. Loved Lanzarote - a beautiful, well looked after island - friendly, helpful locals, an interesting variety of restaurants. Would happily recommend this apartment. Hope to visit again.
Couldn't ask for anything more
Choosing to not book through an agent comes with many positives but always leaves me with jitters until I'm actually in where paid for. On this occasion Matthew answered any questions I had without delay up until we left for Lanzarote, I needed not to worry!
It was almost midnight when we arrived but our privately booked taxi dropped us exactly where we needed to be and we found the apartment (after a little misunderstanding of the directions!).
We were welcomed with a spacious, clean and very well equipped holiday home. The little touches made a big difference between this and other accommodation: milk,water,plugs,fans,washing machine,tea towels. Literally everything you need!
A past comment has been made regarding the curtains. These are linen as explained by Matthew and serve their purpose not having a negative impact on your holiday at all. In comparison to the rest of the apartment they perhaps don't meet the standard set but certainly wouldn't put me off another visit!!
I was worried that the pool area would be heaving being August, and on what seems a large complex for the pool size, but not once did we struggle for a lounger at any time of day.
Location was for us (2 young boys,myself and my mum) perfect. Bars, restaurants, shopping centre, bus stops, beach.
I wouldn't hesitate to go back, in fact my mum is thinking of taking my dad back next year!
Matthew and Karen, thank you for a lovely holiday!
Couldn't ask for more.
Just back from a week away at this apartment. Couldn't ask for more for the money. Plenty space for the four of us, massive fridge freezer, washing machine and proper washing line! Very quiet lane, front garden was a nice place to chill out once kids were in bed. Couldn't think of anything else we would need on a holiday, kids loved all the movies available on the TV. Pool area was clean and having toilets (and showers) there were handy. Some of the sunbeds were getting dated but by time you had a mat and towel down there was no issue. Very secure area, ideally located for strip/beach / old town/biosphera and spar/lidl! Matt was a pleasure to deal with (and I ask millions of questions!). Wouldn't hesitate to rebook this apartment.
A home away from home
Immaculate home away from home. Situated close to the new and old towns. A short distance from beach and Biosfera shopping centre. Arrived at property late evening. From directions given, found it no problem. Place was perfectly clean. Immaculately decorated with homely touches. Welcome folder detailing everything you needed to know. Keys for property well marked. Perks included a full size fridge, in which there was a fresh bottle of water and a carton of milk when we arrived, a washing machine in the outside shed which was very easy to use, and an outside washing line. Beds were modernly dressed and were extremely comfortable, ( double, 2 singles and a large sofa bed). Bath towels, hand towels and toilet rolls supplied. Plenty of kitchen dishes and utensils. Baby chair available although we didn't need. Plenty of wardrobes and storage space. Veranda spacious with 2 sunbeds, cushions available also. Outdoor dining area which was shaded throughout the day made eating out pleasurable. Complex extremely secure with a gate to enter the avenue to the property and the swimming pool. Swimming pool clean and sunbathing area equipped with sunbeds and shades. Overall, couldn't fault this property. And Matthew was always quick to respond and answer any questions I had. Would highly recommend this property.
Could do with a face lift!
We arrived at 6pm to a dirty bungalow,cleaner not been. So first job was stripping dirty beds and doing the washing. We slept the first night without sheets. Cleaned the bathroom,no clean towels! Lounge curtains needed replacing,very thin and falling down. Sunbeds were broken and the covers were filthy. Will not be staying here again.
Activity and Interests
The popular Playa Grande beach is found just a 5 minute walk away. On this beach there are cafe's for refreshments, freshwater showers and toilets. Sunbeds and parasols are available for hire as well as pedlo's. The beach itself is well maintained and cleaned regularly. For people with children it's worth mentioning that there is a shallow drop off into the sea giving plenty of room to play before the water gets too deep. Also the beach is patroled with life guards.
The resort of Puerto del Carmen is situated a short taxi journey from the airport in Arrecife costing about 12 Euro's, (approx £8). Due to the central location of the accommodation car hire is not required but if you intend to explore the island there are many car hire companies to choose from.
If you choose to hire a car then the beautiful beach of Papagayo and the quaint harbour of Puerto Calero are found 20-30 mins south of Puerto del Carmen, whilst the market town of Costa Teguise is found 20 mins to the north.
The 'old town' is a 10 minute stroll away offering a fantastic selection of water front bars and restaurants. There are live music bars and traditional Spanish taverns. There are a number of convenience stores nearby for your papers, fresh bread and a delicious selection of meats if you intend to barbecue.
