Puerto del Carmen - Old Town - Peaceful location, yet 5 minutes' walk to the supermarket,shops and the harbour bars and restaurants
More than just a holiday home, our apartment offers a degree of luxury you won’t want to leave. As you enter you will be delighted by the light, the spaciousness and the décor.
You will probably want to pour yourself a drink, so help yourself to cool bottled water dispensed by the American fridge/freezer, and of course you have a constant supply of ice cubes and crushed ice.
As part of your welcome, we provide tea, coffee, sugar and milk; bottled water, fruit juice, beer and wine.
Now your holiday should be off to the perfect start!
After you have made yourself at home, you can take a moment to read through the Welcome Information Pack. We have provided all the information you will need to access the WiFi, use the internet TV, the air conditioning and generally orient yourself with the apartment. We have also given directions and maps so that you can quickly find your way to the supermarket etc. and around Puerto del Carmen and the Old Town Harbour.
We have provided a safe, so that you have peace of mind knowing that your valuables are secure while you are away from the apartment.
Not only do you have the full package of British TV channels, but also film on demand, catch up TV and radio. The WiFi is free, unlimited and accessible throughout the apartment and on the terrace.
The terrace is a great area for relaxing, eating, reading and of course sunbathing, but the Lanzarote sun is very strong, and even on the occasional hazy day, it is easy to burn in a short time. We have installed a retractable sun awning which will provide a shaded area over part of the terrace, ideal for enjoying a siesta!
We have invested in the most comfortable mattresses, so that each morning you will wake up after a good night’s sleep feeling refreshed. We believe that holidays are about rest and relaxation as well as having fun!
The apartment is situated in a very private part of the complex and yet it is just a few steps to the pool, communal sunbathing area and café.
All of the apartments on the complex are privately owned and as a community, we take great pride in keeping it to the highest standards.

About the Owner
About Louise Phillips
I am very lucky to live on Lanzarote and my mother Helen Dodson lives in the UK. Together we manage the bookings for the apartment. This 2 bedroom apartment belongs to my mother and I have a 1 bedroom apartment on the same complex. The property reference for it is 1987761.
My mother works in a school and comes to stay with me in Lanzarote during the school holidays.
Even after visiting the island for 20 years, we still love exploring and it only takes a view or an incredible sunset and we fall in love with Lanzarote all over again.
Why Louise Phillips chose Puerto del Carmen - Tias
I fell in love with Lanzarote for the marvellous restaurants and local wines, the dramatic landscape and of course the weather!
But most importantly, the island is safe and despite
the tourist trade, it has retained much of its old-world charm. The islanders are well-known for their friendliness and hospitality and we are always made to feel welcome.
What makes this apartment unique
The complex is peaceful and relaxing. The gardens are beautifully tended and importantly the swimming pool is immaculate and maintained to the highest standard.
The apartment is ideally located. It is just a short stroll to the charming Old Town Harbour bars, restaurants and the local beach, Playa Chica. While the busier seafront promenade, its fantastic range of restaurants, bars and seemingly never-ending beach, Playa Grande, are just a 10 minute walk.
After we refurbished the apartment, we loved to stay at home and luxuriate in the style and comfort of our surroundings. We had everything we needed! We however, still managed to go out for a long and leisurely lunch occasionally!
Now, because I have moved to Lanzarote and I have my own bungalow, guests can stay at the apartment all year round.

Amazing place to stay
What a lovely apartment very well maintained and clean and tidy. Everything you need is there including the very generous welcome pack. Louise is one of the most helpfully and nicest person you could meet (thanks for being our taxi to and from airport).
I would recommend to friends and family also hopefully be back too.
Thanks Debbie Dave and Emma
This apartment is one of the best I have ever stayed in, it's a real home from home and one of the cleanest.
The apartment has all mod cons, these include a super fridge giving ice and cold water, TV with all English channels including catch up, great WIFI connectivity, powerful showers and comfy beds. It also has a superb south facing terrace with sunbeds tables and chairs.
It's in a great location near the harbour,but also not far away from the modern strip both these locations have an array of good bars and restaurants. As the apartment is on a hill we often got a taxi back from the strip this was about €3.50 so didn't break the bank.
Louise the owner is a lovely lady, who even collected us from the airport and gave us a lift back. She personally showed us around the apartment and left contact details should we of had any problems. (We didn't )
Finally I would defiantly come back to this apartment or Louise's 1 bedroomed apartment which we didn't see but I believe it is decorated just like the 2 bed roomed we stayed in. Can't wait to return.
Just returned from 10 days in this beautiful apartment, it really is a home from home. It has absolutely everything you could ask for in an apartment from the fantastic welcome pack to a great WiFi connection. It is close to the harbour with plenty bars and great restaurants.
Louise is an absolute gem of a host from collecting us from the airport to arranging transport back for us, nothing was any bother for her and we look forward to returning at some point in the future.
Would highly recommend this apartment to friends and family.

John and LInda
This is a truly wonderful apartment on a small and quiet complex, close to the harbour area bars and restaurants. It is very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. We have stayed in villas and apartments all over Spain and the Canaries and this was by far the best. It was also a pleasure to meet the owner, Louise, who did everything possible to make our stay an enjoyable experience. We will definitely be looking to return.
