October 2019

We have stayed in the area many times, but the first time in this property, Area very hilly, and property up stairs, so not so good for people with mobility issues, but the apartment is spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and felt like home from home within hours of being there, Very comfortable lounge with English TV channels, sunny balcony with a canopy, Large fridge where we found Water, Milk and Biscuits on our arrival, very much appreciated, Very comfortable bed and lots of storage, Resteraunt /bar down stairs run by a luvvly couple. Bus stop outside the property so getting around the Isand was simple. Will definitely be rebooking next year, thankyou

2 bedroom holiday apartment in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote, with shared pool
July 2019

Everything was just perfect. The only negative is that it has no air conditioning. There are fans but it could definitely do with air con. That really is the only negative. Holiday was great. You have to be fit to walk up the 76 steps up to the apartment. It's well worth it when you get there. Definitely would recommend and hope to return.

2 bedroom holiday apartment in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote, with shared pool
February 2019

I am so pleased to say we had yet another wonderful stay. This was our 3rd stay and it just feels like we are coming home! We just mainly stay at the apartment and just completely relax as I have a disability. But there is so much else to do, plenty of bars & restaurants, the restaurant right at the bottom underneath apartment does great food and there is bluebells above that for snacks and drinks, and a small place just to the left before you go through gates, has a good take away menu and of course, beach activities etc. We just chill and watch the world go by.
