About Gabriele Hock

Both my husband and myself are professional therapists in private practice in Oxford, England. We are non-smokers and try to live according to ethical/green considerations, to the extent this is at all possible. We have two grown up daughters and we all love visiting this dramatic island of Lanzarote. Rob is also an artist and the apartment has some of his colourful watercolours and oils on the walls.

Gabriele Hock purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Gabriele Hock chose Puerto del Carmen - Tias

I had no intention of ever buying an apartment in a holiday resort. Being one for 'off the beaten track', the whole idea felt alien to me. But then I joined a friend at her Atalaya holiday apartment in March and my previous attitude was transformed.

In brief I fell in love with the entire holiday complex, and particularly with Casa Maria, an apartment with its unique spaciousness, facilitated by a huge outdoor patio which belongs to the community but is mainly empty. The patio leads to a couple of gorgeous swimming pools.

So, what made me make an offer on the second day of my stay was the sea view, the space, the light, the sky and the sense of tranquility and freedom that all of this provided: my escape from long British Winter months was guaranteed.

What makes this apartment unique

Atalaya is super convenient: 10 min. taxi ride from the airport, its own supermarket at the entrance, yellow sand beaches round the corner, British and German doctor's surgeries, a health spa with reasonably priced saunas and massages and golf course. While you are only minutes away from shops, bars and restaurants you are far enough not to loose that sense of peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle. Atalaya gives you thus the best of both worlds. And the beach of Puerto del Carmen 7 mins walk away is simply the best. Casa Maria is unique as it enjoys a huge outdoor patio, which other apartments don't have. The apartment is newly refurbished and in excellent condition, with carefully chosen fabrics and as it says above with our 4 foot statue of Quan Yin, goddess of compassion.

Just back from a fantastic stay at Casa Sara. Stayed as a family of four. Apartment very comfortable. Everything you could possibly need. Location perfect, pool refreshing and the views are spectacular. Plenty of sun beds at pool. Everything catered for. Thanks to Vinka for transfers and Tom for local information as well as all the information provided in the apartment. Thank you for having us, we will hopefully be back soon

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

Writing this during a dull grey Glasgow day, daydreaming of being back here. Meant to do it upon our return but where does the time go?

Love the complex have stayed at different apartments but this one def had it all, everything you could need and a fantastic sea view too. Just the 2 of us so had the most relaxing time, made even better with straightforward transfers thanks to Vinka, allowing us to make the most of every minute of sunshine with a late check out.

Hope to return in the not to distant future :)

All comforts of home on holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was far better than I had been expecting and had everything that I needed for a wonderful holiday. Very peaceful complex with nice, polite guests - supermarket a minute's walk (handy!!), restaurants 5 mins walk (every choice you could imagine!!). Transfer to/from airport was very quick (10 mins!!). Sea view is stunning. I will definitely be returning next year!!

Lovely peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at casa Maria with my husband and two daughters aged 16 & 13, apartment is all you could need away from home, complex although busy was peaceful and relaxing. Robs paintings in the apartment were a big hit with us all. Didn't get chased out at 10am like most places and Vinka allowed us time to get our selfs sorted ready for our journey home. Smooth pick up from and to the airport from Vinka. A big thank you to you all

Perfect holiday for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Maria in June 2015 - 2 adults and 2 children age 4 and 6 and we had an excellent holiday. Casa Maria is a lovely and well equipped apartement of high standard in the Attalaya complex. The apartment is in a quiet area of Puerto del Carmen just a few minutes away from the front. The whole complex is quiet and peaceful and very well kept.

Casa Maria consist of a good sized bedroom, a lovely living room, a full sized bathroom and a modern and fully equipped kitchen. You can enjoy the private sun facing terrace or have a swim in the pool which is only 15 meters away. Casa Maria, as well as the entire complex is very clean and aesthetic and provides everything one needs for an enjoyable holiday. Even with children there is nothing you need to look for – the Attalaya complex has it all: children pool, supermarket next door, Internet, safety deposit, DVD player, washing machine and a spectacular sea view. The owners were friendly and helpful in replying our questions. All emails were answered promptly and booking was easy. We had a wonderful holiday and a much needed rest in Casa Maria and hope to be back next year.
