About the Owner

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 a seven-year-old son, who loves playing on the beach and paddling 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.

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

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,

Wonderful apartment, we fell in love with the place

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!

More than a home.

  • 5 of 5

The photo's within the website do not do the apartment justice, the place is simply idyllic.

There is everything and more that you need, apart from the teenage daughters constant whinging, no WiFi. Did them the world of good though.

Ideally situated for the beaches and shopping.

All restaurants are of the highest quality, with extremely competitive prices, and WiFi in the majority of them.

Market day well worth a visit at the Marina, walk (20 mins), along the prom, don't do taxi, as you will miss the views. Excellent pool at Marina, €5 per person per day.

Sophie/ Darren, it's everything and more than you advertise, and we thank you for the use of your apartment from the bottom of our hearts, and will definitely return.

We would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

From Russ, Bev, Beth and Alicia.

Exceptional apartment in heart of the Old Town

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed in Playa Blanca on previous occasions this apartment proved to be the best accommodation by far.

Situated in the quiet of the Old Town, the tasteful décor & layout ensured a very comfortable & relaxing holiday.

We felt part of the local Spanish community whilst still being within easy walking distance of everything we needed - local shops/supermarkets, lovely beach, restaurants/bars & the Harbour - definitely no need to hire a car.

In fact we were so impressed by the apartment that I had to txt the owner before we left to ensure its availability for our next visit to Lanzarote !!

From the Owner

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!

From the Owner

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 and everything you need for self-catering.
