About the Owner

We have been renting our apartment for the last few years. We also live in Famara right next door, so are always on hand, should you have any queries or, need local advice or restaurant recommendations! My children also live in Famara, Tom & Maxi, the eldest are keen surfers & kite surfers, so are on hand to guide you to the nearest & best wave breaks. Max is also a qualified surf instructor and International lifeguard, so can offer lessons if required. Paloma (19) currently at University can offer babysitting when she is here or Sienna (15) all year round.

Famara is a really special place, surrounded by stunning scenery & uninterrupted views so Its lovely to see guests enjoying the area & having a great holiday. Its really rewarding to see the same people come back year after year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'll start off by saying this was without doubt the best holiday our family has ever had, fantastic location,fabulous accommodation with beautiful views and Lynne and family were very friendly and helpful.

We arrived at the villa late at night starving and thirsty to find that Lynne had stocked the fridge with essentials (bread,milk, eggs etc)for our arrival plus a six pack of ice cold beer and a bottle of wine!!!!!! The apartment itself is fab with all the mod cons and a well stocked video, DVD library and loads of books that others have left behind plus a stereo, it's like a home from home and really comfortable and well furnished. If you surf this place is paradise, if you dislike the normal tourist haunts, high rise hotels, time share touts etc this place is paradise and if your a sun worshipper the beach is amazing....Not one moan from my two teenage boys for the fortnight we were there says it all......Fantastic.

The best spot on the island

  • 5 of 5

After 20+ years of visits to Lanzarote, why would a couple visit the very same apartment in Famara every year, sometimes twice a year? The 10 minute walk to the loveliest beach in Lanzarote. The spectacular views of the plains, the volcanoes and the islands of Graciosa. The proximity of Teguise, ancient, historic, capital of Lanzarote with its enchanting buildings, romantic restaurants and exotic shops. The towering, brooding cliffs. The quaint, unspoiled fishing village of Caleta de Famara, a short walk along the beach. Picturesque sunsets seen viewed from the terrace over a glass of Lanzarotean wine. The comfortable, spacious, well equipped and attractively furnished apartment. Why wouldn't you go back?

We’ve stayed in lots of other places on the Island including the Arracife Gran and LagOmar but this is the best. I’m getting all excited now about our return visit in the Autumn.

The perfect Lanzarote apartment

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location and lovely hosts are just two of the reasons we keep returning to this apartment.

We've been going to Lanzarote for about 8 years now and after ok experiences for the first couple of years in other properties we finally found this apartment and have been staying there ever since.

The place is huge, with a massive garden, living area and kitchen. There is a large selection of DVDs and books, a hi-fi you can plug your iPod into.

Just a 3 min walk away there is a small shop where you can get fresh bread and breakfast stuff, and for dinner the village of Famara has a few really good restaurants to choose from.

The setting is perfect also, with stunning views over Famara beach and the Macizo of Famara cliffs rising up just behind the apartment and you could not ask for a better spot to watch the sunset from every night with a cold drink in your hand!

If you are into surfing it is possible to check the surf without leaving the garden, and walking to the beach with your board only take 5 mins.

The owner Lynne is the perfect host, always on hand just upstairs if you have any questions but otherwise happy to let you get on with your holiday in peace.

Much Better Than a Hotel

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment with wonderful views and facilities. Lynne is friendly, helpful yet discreet and all our requests were no trouble to her.

A great base to have a super holiday whether you're a lazy tourist, surfer, walker, cyclist or sun worshiper. You need a car! (best deal was with Goldcar); for food shopping (Eurospar supermarket on road out of Arrecife....prices lot lower than UK...). Enjoyed our BBQs in landscaped garden overlooking beach and later would relax with a dvd from the vast collection. Want to visit again and I wouldn't consider a hotel after being here.

We will definitely return.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent three fantastic weeks at Lynne 's lovely house. Lynne could not have been more helpful before, during or after our stay. She was able to help with all enquiries, requests or questions.

The house gives you a home from home feeling, the rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The house has a bathroom and a shower wet room that was brilliant. The accommodation has been thought about carefully and made to fit your needs.

The garden has the trampoline which our kids bounced on every day. The garden with great views to the beach was lovely to use at the end of a hot day reading under the pergola on the sun beds and the area itself it quiet and away from the touristy buzz of the more commercial resorts.

The boys both had several surf lessons with Maxi, (Lynnes son) who was very good with them and we recommend him highly - You can hire body boards or surf boards in the village and also wet suits if you need them. The beach is less than a 10 min walk away or you can drive down in the car. The local supermercado (supermarket) is a 5 min walk away and open 8am till 9pm in summer months.

The harbour behind the towns high street is great fun to swim in quite safely, children jumping in and playing in the water. The little cafes in the town really are a delight and it is so beautiful in its own way.

We loved it and if you don't want the hussle of the bigger resorts then stay in Famara - it was just wonderful. Once again lastly, our thanks to Lynne.

Great apartment with fab views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment earlier this year and had a great time. We were made very welcome by the owner who had lots of advice about things to do and places to visit on the island and also advice about kite surfing and surfing spots which was one of the reasons for our visit. They supplied a 'welcome pack' of food and drink . Their daughter also very kindly helped me with my Spanish! Although the owners live 'on site' they weren't at all intrusive but were happy to chat if we sought them out.

The apartment is very well equipped and has tv,dvd and video so great if you have children with you or if you want to watch kite surf/surf dvds. There are lots of videos,dvds and books available in the apartment. The kitchen is better equipped than most rental properties we've stayed in - you can actually cook a meal and not just warm up a pizza!

Outside there are views of the ocean and a walk down a footpath to a swimming pool. The beach is a short walk away.

There are a few restaurants in the town. Blue painted place by water (don't remember name) was excellent with friendly staff who were very good Spanish teachers who didn't mind me practicing the language on them.

We would definately stay in the apartment again.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic - I couldn't stop smiling the moment we turned the corner onto the terrace!! Its beautifully furnished with literally everything you could possibly need, even down to candles and fairy lights! The location is amazing, with lovely views of the sea, cliffs and landscape. We spent hours star spotting on the terrace in the evenings, after a stroll down to the local fish restaurants in town. I can't describe how beautiful Famara is and Lynne's apartment provides a lovely peaceful setting to enjoy it! 100% recommended! .... Emma & Chris, Manchester

From the Owner

Driving down the road the Famara beach I always look forward to coming home. Breathtaking views of the sea with the volcanos in the background, its just very hard to beat. Being a National Park that view will never change which is a rare find in this climate. If you want the nightlife its only a 20 minute drive away, & only 35 mins away are some fabulous waterfront restaurants, so you never feel cut off.
