Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay here, the area was quiet, peaceful and scenic, just what we wanted. The villa is well equiped, spacious and clean. The pool area is beautiful with great views. Sue, the owner was very obliging, nothing was to much trouble. Ideal for a romantic getaway. Jo Haskins From Evesham, Worcestershire, England

Stunning location, clean and well equipped villa

  • 3 of 5

Spent 10 days in August 2016

5 of us in total.

Lovely finca, well equipped and clean

The owners were really helpful and helped us arrange a hire car (which is essential as there's nothing with walking distance)

The only negative I would say and was really disappointing is directly above the pool area is the owners living room with huge patio doors and balcony.(not in any of the photos) We had asked before booking if the pool was privaye and not overlooked and were told it wasn't.. they have dark netting over their patio windows but we could sometimes hear their TV and see the shadows of them moving about..

They are lovely people however we found this off-putting..

Stunning views across the island

Lovely! Everything we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing stay at this gorgeous Finca with 3 friends for a long weekend last February, so much so we are going back this February too.

The property was lovely, home from home. We had everything we needed and more with great amenities.

The rooms were clean tidy and very relaxing. The views were stunning and the pool area clean and well maintained which was just as well because we spent a lot of time relaxing and sunning ourselves on the comfortable loungers provided. Towels were also provided which was a plus.

Sue and Ernie were great hosts, living in the villa attached meant that although the finca is very private they were on hand to answer any queries or tips regarding the island.

We hired a car, the finca has plenty of parking space, and explored lots that the island had to offer including stunning beaches, markets, the gorgeous marina and some lovely restaurants which are all only minutes away by car.

Conil is a peaceful and idyllic area of Lanzarote and I cannot wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the lovely review. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and that you are returning again in a few weeks. Sue and Ernie work hard to ensure that the finca is comfortable and that they are available to help out guests if needed. As you say, Conil is a lovely, relaxing part of the island, and a pretty central base to get out and explore all that Lanzarote has to offer. We hope you enjoy your next visit just as much. Thanks again, Natalie, Sue and Ernie La Cantera.

Idyllic location, fabulous host, the perfect relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Lanzarote thanks to Natalie and Sue. The location was ideal, quiet with beautiful views, and yet close to amenities so it was never difficult to get anything we needed. It's easy to get to from the airport and yet still manages to feel like you've escaped to your own island.

The apartment is exactly as described, clean and with a well equipped kitchen and even pool towels provided. We really appreciated the lovely kitchen and comfortable bed, as well as having plenty of space to lounge around both outside and in. Having breakfast outside every day was a real treat. The heated pool was a revelation and we spent plenty of time relaxing by it enjoying the views across to the coast.

Natalie was incredibly helpful during the booking process, being able to answer all our questions and give guidance about whether to hire a car (essential to get the most out of what the island has to offer) Then when we arrived Sue was a fantastic host, seeming to know exactly when to pop by with a restaurant or trip recommendation, and yet left us alone to enjoy our time. We particularly appreciated her recommendation of the tapas bar La Cantine in Teguise and we ended up having two good meals there.

I couldn't recommend this property more highly and we're already considering a follow up visit next year.

Totally recommend......

  • 5 of 5

Although, sadly, we didn't experience the best weather that Lanzarote has to offer when we visited this November, we were extremely comfortable at La Cantera. As has been written in another review, the photographs don't lie. There is very comfortable seating in the lounge which overlooks, and leads out on to, a small terrace with table and chairs. From there, wander down the path to the heated swimming pool with 180* vista. Dressing gowns and fluffy towels (changed every three days) in the bathroom and a super king size bed with soft pillows complete the picture. The DVD player (and films) were a boon on wet days and the wifi was reliable and fast.

Sue and Ernie are delightful friendly hosts - on hand for any help or advice but never interfering.

There is an excellent supermarket, Eurospar, about five minutes away which will fulfil most needs and a First Class restaurant, La Cabana, just nearby. We were also recommended La Ermita Tapas Bar in Tias but never made it there.

All in all, fantastic reasonably priced accommodation away from the hurly burly, but within easy reach, of Puerto del Carmen.

As I said in the title......totally recommend! 😊

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to leave such a lovely review. Always a shame when the weather is bad, but it's such a beautiful island to explore, even in less than perfect weather. I have forwarded your review to Sue and Ernie and they would like to thank you for being such lovely guests and hope they will see you again, but with more sunshine this time! Many thanks, Natalie
