About Sophie and Darren Cox

Hello, we are Sophie and Dee. We live in London, but get out to our gorgeous apartment in Playa Blanca as often as we can! We have an eight-year-old son, who loves playing on the beach and swimming in the sea. We love going there for winter sun, as well as enjoying the wonderful long evenings in the summer. We are confident you will fall in love with our place as much as we have.

Sophie and Darren Cox purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Sophie and Darren Cox chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

When we spotted the apartment for sale, it was love at first sight. There are hundreds of 'generic' apartments/villas in Playa Blanca, but our place really stood out as it has an authentic Spanish feel to it and is the perfect 'home from home'. Plus of course the location is fantastic - everything we need for a great holiday is in walking distance!

What makes this apartment unique

The location is unbeatable - it's on a quiet side street in the heart of the Old Town, so no booming bar noise at night; but at the end of our road, literally 1-2 minutes' walk (depending on how fast you walk!) you reach the sea, restaurants, bars and shops. Dorada Beach, where we spend much of our time, is 3-4 minutes along the promenade, and the beautiful Marina, with its twice weekly markets, is 5 minutes walk along from there.

The apartment itself is a joy to relax in, with table and chairs on the all-day-sun front patio, Wifi and everything you need for self-catering.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“What a breath of fresh air to actually be as close to the beach as you said you were! Two weeks was not enough!” - David and Sue Rowen

Great self-catering holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say thank you to the owners, we loved staying in your apartment! We have visited Playa Blanca many times but it was our first time self-catering. What a great place to be based at, we were planning to eat out a lot but actually found ourselves cooking and enjoying eating out on the patio most days. What's great about this place is how close it is to everything we needed - the beaches, shops and restaurants - personal recommendation is Cervantes, a few minutes walk from the apt, great steaks, and special offer 3 courses incl glass of wine for under 10 euros!!! You can really see a lot of love has been put into this apartment, many thanks again, Paul and Clare

The apartment is very quiet and private. Car parking is free and you can park easily.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, well decorated and has all you need for a great stay. The balcony is fantastic with a fabulous view of the volcano and across to Fueutraventura. The whole apartment is clean, well maintained and very spacious. We enjoyed our stay and would happily return. The apartment is very close to the centre of the town but far enough away to be very peaceful. The WiFi was reliable. Arrival and departure is well organised.

Perfect for a hastle free holiday. We hired a car at bottom of street . Much cheaper way to visit the sights of the island.

Great flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the flat, and the location was perfect. It was brilliant being so close to the hub, much nicer than staying in a holiday complex as we did the first time we visited Lanzarote. We felt we really knew the town by the time we left, and discovered some amazing coastal scenery after being nosy and climbing the steps at what appears to be a dead end at the eastern side of the marina. The main Playa Blanca bus station (Estacion de Guaguas) is just a five minute walk away, and it's cheap and easy to get around by bus. We went to Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife for the day, although I confess Playa Blanca is my favourite part of the island - a delightful little town. The volcano tour buses also pick up and drop off at the bus station. The harbour is also about five minutes' walk away and we made a trip across to Fuerteventura.

Being in a residential dwelling as opposed to a holiday pad was also much nicer - the layout and amount of space were great, designed for family living, not just for holidays. Beds were very comfy too, and thanks for all the kitchen equipment. Thanks also for the very detailed information pack.

Next time we go to Lanzarote, we'll definitely request another stay. The flat was perfect in every way. Thank you so much for letting us use it.

All the best,

You couldn't get a better positioned apartment for the beach and restaurants. The apartment is lovely and furnished as you would your own home - with so much thought having gone in to providing everything you need for a wonderful holiday. We loved it!
