Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Playa Blanca

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 5

View more photos - please ask for link. Ideally placed in a quiet residential area within comfortable walking distance to Playa Blanca's beaches, marina and nightlife, 56 Iris is a 2 storey luxury duplex town house completed early 2006. With a bedroom and bathroom on each level, the property is furnished and equipped to make you feel at home. Wi Fi throughout. Bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes & ceiling fans, whilst the kitchen has everything you need including dishwasher, microwave, oven, grill, toaster, kettle etc. To the front, there is a part shaded terrace & balcony overlooking the large communal pool with views to the sea. There is an add'l balcony & an enclosed drying area with washing machine. Sunbeds and terrace furniture are provided as is a portable heater, large fan and safe for peace of mind. An excellent supermarket/cafe/car hire/taxi rank and the impressive Iberostar Hotel are close by, the latter with excellent restaurant/bars/entertainment available to visitors of Iris.

Eating Out: There are plenty of excellent restaurants in Playa Blanca offering something for all tastes. Several have recently opened at the close by Marina, which is a great place to dine out after sampling a relaxing cocktail at the trendy Cafe Del Mar. Alternatively, stroll into town where restaurants and bars line the pedestrianised sea front promenade. We have compiled a restaurant review for all our guests to help you decide where to eat.

On your doorstep you also have the 4 star Iberostar Papagayo Hotel which has a buffet style restaurant available to outside clients, where you can eat and drink as much as you like for 19 euros, with children under 12 at half price.

Following your evening meal why not try a quiet drink or even sample the entertainment at one of the other nearby 4 and 5 star hotels.

House Keeping: Sufficient towels are provided and bed linen is changed weekly. There is a washing machine and enclosed outdoor drying area available for guest use. For bookings of 2 weeks or longer a mini clean is available on request at a small extra charge. Guests should bring their own beach towels. A safe is provided at no extra cost.

What To Do: Lanzarote has so much to offer as further detailed in our guest manual.

Within Playa Blanca why not try diving via one of the schools in the resort, water sports as found at the Dorada Beech or for those really energetic the squash or tennis available at the Iberostar Hotel. Bike hire, crazy golf and pitch and putt etc are also available locally, along with boat trips and sailing opportunities via the marina and main harbour.

Sight seeing trips are run from outlets within Playa Blanca but driving is so easy and the island relatively small at 60 x 21km, so why not hire a car and see the capital Arrecife and the other resorts including Puerto Calero, where you can have a trip in a submarine. There's also the volcanoes, markets and caves or get off the beaten track and explore the wonderful fishing villages and small mountain towns.

Fuerteventura is only a very short ferry ride away, although if taking a car please check the insurance first as not always covered.

Best kept a secret as its so good

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing and peaceful 2 week stay in this lovely house. The apartment was a delight! Very clean & well maintained as was the complex too. Looked even better than in the photos! This apartment has a corner plot allowing it more space surrounding it when compared to the other apartments. There's a spacious outside eating area, sunbathing area with loungers & a lovely little balcony on the first floor with a sea view where you can enjoy an evening drink watching the sun set.
Lots of effort has been put into this apartment and there was everything we could possibly need for our comfort including a dishwasher & washing machine (essential when you've got kids).

Gary was a pleasure to deal with. Genuinely enthusiastic about the apartment and island of Lanzarote which was what impressed me the most from the outset. Very reliable, quick to reply to my emails and gave me lots of info before we flew out. Lots of info in the apartment was also provided to help us with ideas on places to eat & local tourist attractions. He was also flexible when our flight times were changed twice which is so helpful when booking things separately rather than a package.

We really enjoyed exploring the Playa Blanca area and walked along the well paved footpath alongside the sea to the Marina, Playa Dorada & Playa Blanca town. Absolutely must recommend La Taberna for tapas at Marina Rubicon (ate there 3x) and also Mollie's Irish Bar at Playa Dorada (for friendliness, good value food, and a top view of the sea). We cooked in a few times and found Gary's kitchen well stocked with utensils, pots, pans & best of all a dishwasher. The nearby supermarkets had everything we needed.

There's lots to see and do in Lanzarote and we found it a fascinating and pretty island. We hired a car & drove north to the Timanfaya National Park to see the volcanoes. We rode camels, went to the Cuevas Verdes volcanic underground caves and the Jardin de Cactus.

I have no hesitation in recommending Gary's holiday home and this island as a holiday destination.

Fantastic house and holiday

  • 5 out of 5
This is a real find, a little jewel in Playa Blanca. This was our 4th holiday in Playa Blanca but our first at 56 Iris, we had our two teenagers with us - daughter 19yrs and 14yr old son. It was so straight forward to book, Gary made everything easy and sent lots of local information. We booked our transfers with Eddie and Angie who live locally they were great, really looked after us and gave us lots of tips where to shop and eat. The house was amazing better than the photos, so clean and well equipped absolutely everything you need including lots of plug adapters, spare linen and the dishwasher and washing machine was great as we only travelled with hand luggage for the 12 days!! The pool and grounds were clean and well equipped, lots of sunbeds didn't have to set an alarm at 6am to put towels out like the quests at the nearby 5* hotel did. The house is situated in a quiet area but very easy to walk to marina and restaurants. We enjoyed Lani's snack bar, Little Italy and Tipical Canaria restaurants and had a great trip on The Goleta Raquel C wooden sailing boat which included snorkelling and a BBQ. Please don't worry about booking direct with Gary all very safe, we loved it so much have already booked for next July. Sue, Richard, Laura & John

Owner's Response: I appreciate your wonderful review Sue. Glad to know you are happy with my service and that you thought the house was better than the photos, I'll sack the photographer!

You're not the first to mention the sunbed issues at the local hotels, much better to have the piece and quiet at Iris as you say, with plenty of sunbeds and shade as you require.

I look forward to your return next year.

Thanks again.

Fantastic apartment, great location

  • 5 out of 5
Enjoyed our stay at this wonderful, spacious and well maintained property. The overall space over two floors makes it an ideal home from home apartment. It would suit families, extended families and two couples holidaying together Well equipped and the extra touches added by Gary make for a relaxing holiday. The lovely terrace for outdoor eating and two balconies provide plenty of outdoor space together with the convenience of the laundry area. The complex is relaxing, peaceful and exceptionally well maintained. My daughters loved the pool. Excellent location, just a pleasant stroll to the Marina and unlike some residential areas of PB the walk is well lit at night.

Perfect holiday location and all year round destination. We have visited the Island for over 20 years at various times of the year and are never disappointed - will keep coming back with Gary's apartment top of the list Thank you also Gary for your information and assistance.

Owner's Response: Hi Alison

Thanks ever so much for the wonderful review. As you say the island is a fantastic location at any time of the year. Whilst we have not yet reached your level of 20 years in trips to Lanzarote, we are around 11 now and I can honestly say that we never get bored of returning.

I'm glad you love the house, as you say it is a perfect size and in an ideal location. I hope you liked my garden improvements, which will be concluded with a lovely new fence in September. I'm pleased that you found the complex so nice, our community committee do everything they can to keep it in excellent condition.

As we are now top of your list we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

Adios for now.

Great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent property just as described and very clean. It is in a lovely and quiet position with a very pleasant walk to the marina and town.
The property is well equipped with all you need for self catering with the added bonus of the washing machine which meant that we didn't need to take too much luggage.
The people in the neighbouring properties were very friendly and helpful.
All of the restaurants and bars were good value with very friendly waiters, and the food was very good indeed.
I would very much recommend a stay here if you like a relaxing holiday. We will definitely book here again should we go back to Lanzarote.
Very many thanks to Gary for letting us rent the property, hope to do so again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to review our lovely house. I'm glad you discovered that you can't go wrong with the restaurants and bars, which as you say provide outstanding standards at a reasonable cost.

I look forward to having you back sometime in the future. I'd recommend you try a winter break if you get the chance, when you will get cheaper flights, an extra hour of daylight and temperatures in to the mid twenties. It's quite surreal, believe me, we go out every December and enjoy it as much, if not more, than our summer breaks!

Great Location, Great Value.

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here with my son (7) and hubby this Easter break for 7 days, and we had a fabulous holiday. The accommodation is just as described, and was spotless.The location is great, and our 7 year old happily walked along the promenade to the marina, or further to Playa Dorada at least twice each day, and back. It's easy for almost everyone. It is a vey quiet complex, and not the place for marauding crowds. It's very clean and well looked after, and there are rules that one is expected to follow regarding noise etc, which help to keep the place as it is. Dealing with the owner was an absolute doddle, so please don't worry about booking direct. Overall, Great!!

Location

Nearest Airport
30 Kilometres
Arrecife (Via mountain village of Femes)
Nearest Beach
500 Metres
Car: not necessary

Relaxed Playa Blanca lies to the south of the island and is reputed to be the sunniest resort and best sheltered from the wind. The Iris complex is a stones throw from the cliff top promenade, which has outstanding views to Fuerteventura. In one direction the promenade takes you to the recently built Colorado area with the island's protected Papagayo beaches a short walk beyond. In the other direction a 10 minute stroll will bring you to the Marina Rubicon with it’s designer shops and restaurants. The golden sands of Dorada beach is a further 10 minutes walk with Playa Blanca centre and sea view restaurants a short stroll on. Car hire whilst not essential is very cheap at around £80/week via the internet (picked up from the airport). Alternatively a taxi from the nearby taxi rank to Playa Blanca centre will cost only 3 euros with airport runs approximately 30 euros. Sight seeing coach trips are available locally.

Golf: The nearby Hisperia Dorada Hotel has a very good pitch and put facility.

Full 18 hole courses can be found at nearby Puerto Del Carmen and Costa Teguise.

A course is to be built in Playa Banca in the near future.

The 40 minute ferry that can be taken from Playa Blanca to Fuerteventura gives access to the many courses on Fuerteventura.
