What stands out is the light, huge sky and panoramic sea view. 10 min. from airport, with car hire and a supermarket right at the entrance of the complex.

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

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.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a great location, ideally situated for the beach and bars/restaurants. The pool area is very nice and was quiet during our visit. The view from the apartment is amazing, looking out to sea. The apartment itself contained everything we needed. We would definitely recommend and would return here.

A lovely apartment with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent four weeks in this apartment and had an absolutely fantastic holiday. Everything you need is in the apartment. The location and views were superb. It is close to all amenities, shops, bars and restaurants. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked to go again next year.

fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment, everything you could possibly need was in the apartment. there were plenty of supermarkets nearby.the pool was brilliant as it was only a few steps away from the apartment. a short 10 minute stroll from the apartment there were plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. would definitely recommend this apartment and Vinka who collected us from the airport was very nice and explained all about the area and showed us to the apartment and made sure we were settled before leaving and told us any problems to just phone. We will definitely be returning to this wonderful island.

Just returned home after staying in Gabys apartment for 12 days. Had a great time and the apartment was excellent. Everything we wanted was available in apartment and a lovely terrace outside. Lovely complex and pool area. Plenty of sunbeds. No getting up at silly o"clock to put towels out lol. Hoping to return in 2018.

5-7 min walk to the best beaches in Lanzarote. Sand is golden. Promenade very well kept with palm trees, flowers and shrubs, miles of promenade with many beach cafe's and restaurants. Pleasant, not too hyped up.


Arrecife airport 10 min. taxi ride away (12 -15 euros). If you want to see the rest of the island which we highly recommend you need a car. Car hire is in a garage situated in the basement of Atalaya in Calle San Pedro Barba, 20 euros per day. If you hire for at least 7 days and mention my apartment and name you can hire for 15 euros per day.


Tequise market in Tequise town on a Sunday is approximately 20 - 30 min. away. Haria towards the North 35-40 min, El Golfo 25 min., fire mountain about the same. Arrecife 10 -15 min. Lanzarote is a relatively small island and all destinations are easily accessible.

Further Details:

Restaurants, shops, banks, doctor's surgery, wellness spa, supermarkets, tourist info. are all in walking distance between 1 and 10 mins away. The old port is a 20 min. walk away with some very good restaurants. These are penciled onto the map which hangs on the kitchen wall. There is also an anthroposophical centre which offers various types of therapies, workshops, lectures and cultural evenings, with a wholefood restaurant. See Centro Anthroposophica near the Biosphere. The biosphere near the Old Town is a modern shopping complex, good for clothes shopping.
