About sharon stevens
We are a retired couple who always dreamt of having a place in the sun. Now we have our winter hideaway and are delighted with it. We can share our good fortune with our four children and Twelve grandchildren and it is a pleasure to be able to do that.

Why sharon stevens chose Puerto del Carmen - Tias
We had been looking for somewhere for a few years,mainly in southern Spain. Then fate, in the form of a family wedding, brought us to Lanzarote. One trip and we were hooked. We like this area of Puerto del Carmen because of the quiet location and lovely beach. All that we need is close at hand . The promenade is a pleasure,and one day we may get around to using that outdoor gym equipment. If we feel like a late night,the buzz of "The Strip" is only a short walk ride away.
What makes this apartment unique
Playa Park is a lovely complex in a good location.
The apartment now has everything that we want. Lanzarote does not have the high rise blocks of other holiday spots,and this is definitely part of its appeal. Tourist development is very carefully managed thanks to the ground rules laid down by the artist Ceasar Manrique. All houses should be painted white, with blue, green, or brown paintwork. This certainly adds to the charm of this island that makes people return time and time again. Go on - try it.

Lovely Comfortable Apartment
We stayed at this wonderful apartment for a month over Christmas and New Year. This apartment is very convenient for all the amenities of Los Poscillos and Puerto Del Carmen and is within easy walking distance of the sea front, shops, restaurants and bars. The apartment has the sun from early morning and is facing the pool and the seafront. Everything you could wish for is provided - and a few extras besides. This apartment is one of the few on this complex with two bedrooms and the rooms are all of a good size. Sharon was extremely helpful and booking the apartment was simple: the information provided was complete and easy to follow. There are a few supermarkets near here: the best for price a nd choice is the SPAR on Avenida Italia. The bus stop is nearby and you can get to Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise and Puerto Calero for very little money. This part of Puerto Del Carmen is flat and easy to negotiate - in the old town there are more hills! The beach is a few minutes walk away and is a lovely sandy expanse.. you can walk across the sand to Matagorda from here. We loved it here: we have been to many apartments in this area and this is the best one that we have been to yet. Thank you Sharon.
Excellent! Fabulous! Wonderful!
This apartment was fabulous, had absolutely every thing you need. Was immaculately clean on our arrival. Plenty of storage, toys on the balcony in a box. Was like a home from home. Location was fab too, not to near the busy strip but not too far away either.

Activity and Interests
Los Pocillios beach is only two walk minutes away,directly in front of the apartment. There are many other lovely beaches in easy walking distance,you could go to a different one each day of the week. For those who want to venture further afield the beautifull Papagayo is 30 minutes by car,as is the surfers paradise of Farmara. Most of the more seclude beaches have good fish restaurants supplied by the local fishing fleet. Great for a day out.
Arrecife is the airport for Lanzarote and is 10 minutes away by car. A taxi will cost 10-15 euro.There is a wide variety of car hire available, at a reasonable cost. For those who want a break from driving ,the local bus service is good. Buses run from the old town to Arrecife and beyond.On Sundays there is a special service to the excellent market at Teguise, the ideal spot to buy you holiday souvenirs. Many coach and boat tours are on offer to the sites that Lanzarote has to offer. Enjoy.
Lanzarote is a small island so all sites are easily accessible.Car hire companies have maps with recommended routes, or you could just explore on your own. Arrecife is the city and has the main shopping areas. It is about 15 mins on the bus. The Biosphere is a retail complex near the old town and has lots of shops and cafes, together with a childrens play area and mini golf.
The nearest shop to the apartment is a few minutes away,it sells most goods together with English newspapers.Local Spar stores are good value and stock a large variety of products.There are several banks and cash points along the Strip, together with many other shops.
This is a great area for cycling,running and walking. The Iron Man contest is held here every year.
Other activities available are scuba diving,go-karting,and sailing.
A variety of bicycles,from single to family cycles,can be hired locally and there are plenty of cycle tracks.
For the more leisurely holiday maker, boat and coach trips are plentiful.
Children will love Rancho Texas,an open zoo with lots of activities,and it is within walking distance of the apartment.
