About the Owner
About The Owner
We've been visiting the Canary Islands for years and especially Lanzarote. Having realised how often we've visited and how much we loved the island and climate we decided to purchase our own property. So in November 2010 we took the plunge and after the last two weeks in the sun we've decided to offer our apartment for rent on owners direct.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010
Why The Owner chose Puerto del Carmen - Tias
As soon as we viewed the property we knew it was for us. It's not the usual holiday let with the heavy wooden furniture and bland soft furnishings. It has a home from home atmosphere.
The complex is small with only ten apartments and it has an enclosed garden so it is very private. The pool is shared however with other residents chosing to visit the tourist attractions we had the pool to ourselves most days.
It's location is quiet but on the contrary is a short eight minute walk to the main strip giving us the benefit of choice.
The apartment terrace is large and the dividing wall is covered with flowers from a beautiful purple shrub.
Puerto Del Carmen has an abundance of facilities for all ages and its close proximity to Arrecife Airport makes it easily accessible.
What makes this apartment unique
The property is just in the right place in Puerto Del Carmen. Its in a quiet and peaceful area but withing easy walking distance of the main beach and strip while close enough to the Old Town and Harbour for leisurely evening walks.
The fully equipped kitchen means that if you chose to you can prepare all meals during your stay. Fridge/freezer is convenient for cold drinks and with the pool on you doorstep there is no need to wander from the apartment.

Everything we could have wished for and more
A very well-equipped apartment with a shared lovely swimming pool. The weather was great and the food and alcohol were very cheap. Altogether we had a brilliant time and would definitely consider going back. To the people leaving negative reviews I would say "if you want the Ritz then pay for it".
Had a fantastic time in this lovely apartment.everything we needed.ideal position near enough to new and old town and far enough away for the peace and quiet.apartment was lovely and clean and we needed for nothing.
Mostly good, but some noise issues
Nice little apartment, well placed near to the centre and also easy to walk to old town. Very comfy bed and a great outside terrace( with sun loungers) that does get sun all day. The apartment is also very well equipped and we appreciated having a proper hob and oven. A great little supermarket is on the next block and stocks most things you may need. There is also an overseas supermarket a bit further down the road if you do miss any of your UK products which is next door to a really good takeaway(try the spinach patties). Thought the exterior key safe was a great idea so you always have a spare key available just in case.
Brenda was a star, keeping the apartment serviced every week and was also on hand to sort out any problems ( we had sky TV issue ).
What regrettably made us unable to score 5/5 was noise from the neighbours which in fairness is something I am not sure what Charles and Agnes can do to resolve. The complex is mainly residential with only a couple of the 10 apartments being for holiday purposes. This means people live here , go to work and have pets. We are very tolerable people but we did have occasions when we were affected by next door and upstairs who seem to be permanent residents. This said, we were blessed with wonderfully warm weather so that was a real bonus as we did not expect it to be so hot.
A Little Gem
We had a lovely comfortable holiday in this homely apartment. The apartment had everything we needed. It was well located in a quiet area but within easy reach of supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The apartment was cleaned weekly and fresh sheets and towels were provided - thank you Brenda. The owners were very helpful and answered our questions promptly. Having Brenda as a contact point locally in the case of problems was another plus.
We would have no hesitation in booking this apartment again or in recommending it to family and friends.

Perfect holiday apartment
We stayed for 8 nights in this lovely apartment. The owners, Charles and Agnes are lovely to deal with and were most helpful and replied promptly to all my emails and queries. Their apartment is located in a quiet area and close enough for a short walk to supermarkets, shops, and the many cafes and restaurants in Puerto del Carmen. The apartment is very well equipped with everything we would have needed although we didn't do any cooking, we were on holiday! Plenty of coat hangers in the wardrobe, which isn't always the case. It was very comfortable and homely, not like a lot of holiday lets which are very impersonal, and clearly this apartment is well cared for and clean. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio area which does get the sunshine all day however there is also a shady bit for most of the time too. It is not overlooked and we hardly saw anyone else at all. We also watched some of the DVD's provided in the evening whilst relaxing on the comfortable settee with a gin and tonic and read a couple of the books from the bookshelf.
All in all we had a very relaxing holiday which is exactly what we wanted and would certainly recommend this lovely apartment to anyone. Hope to be back again in the not too distant future. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Activity and Interests
The main beach at Puerto Del Carmen is a leisurely 8 min walk from the apartment. Sun loungers and parasols can be hired by the day. There are plenty water sport activities on the beach including pedalos, jet ski, banana boat, para gliding etc. Water sports areas are cordoned off for safety. There is also a dive school at Playa Chica Beach which is a further ten minutes towards the harbour. The beach is well patrolled by life guard/first aider and is a long stretch of child friendly sand.
Arrecife Airport is a short 10 minute taxi transfer to and from the apartment. The cost will be between 12-15 euros. The nearest bus stop is a short 2 minute walk, leaving the property turn right, at the end of the street go left and at the main road turn right. Fifty meters along this road is the bus stop to Arrecife Town and Costa Teguise. The service is regular and very inexpensive. The bus to Playa Blanca can be caught right outside the Biosphera and costs about three euros.
Puerto Del Carmen. Main beach 8 mins. Main strip 8 mins.Biosphera Shopping Mall 10 mins. Old Town 10 mins. Harbour 15 mins. Casino 10 mins. Costa Teguise is a 20 minute drive from PDC. Playa Blanca is 35-40 mins drive from PDC.
There are a number of operators along the strip who organise tours of the island. They pick up and set down at predetermined points around Puerto Del Carmen. Car hire however is cheap and entrance to the attractions is inexpensive so why not choose to do it yourself.
Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote
Situated on the East Coast, Puerto del Carmen is the principle and busiest resort on the Island. The new town of Puerto Del Carmen offers a fantastic variety of both Daytime and Night-time activities to suit people of all ages and nationalities.
For those who love early mornings and daytime activities or just basking in the sun this is the most perfect resort. Its main beach Playa Grande is the largest on the island and faces a long strip which hosts a huge variety of restaurants, shops and bars.
For those of us that prefer the nightlife Puerto del Carmen is definitely the resort for you. With its multitude of restaurants, pubs and disco bars there is something for everybody. For the younger and more energetic there is the main centre of nightlife called Centro Atlantico where one will find many bars, discos and live music venues playing the latest sounds.
The old town of Puerto Del Carmen is a picturesque fishing port containing a wide variety of fabulous restaurants. Here you can eat anything from a traditional Canarian dish, Italian pasta or pizza to Irish or English breakfast. This is definitely a must for those who love fine foods.
