Notes:
Firstly a very warm welcome from Brian & Lesley, who own the apartment and maintain that your stay with us will be wonderful; (we go the extra mile). We provide the little things that make all the difference... for example: - wine of your choice, Canarias fruit, beers in the fridge, 5 litres of water, milk, coffee, tea, sugar, sweetener's, salt & pepper and so on. You will LOVE staying in this wonderful Penthouse... the atmosphere on the Terrace is fantastic! The accommodation is scrupulously clean! All the linen, bedding and towels are of excellent quality. As well as having a safe for any valuables, we also have a Key safe and a locked gate to the entrance. A trouser press is also provided. Car hire is not necessary or essential, but if you do require a car we can perhaps get it cheaper for you. If you arrive late in the evening and need anything from the shops, we can help you with that as well. We look forward to seeing you.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my three children at this Penthouse Apartment for 10 days in July. It was just fantastic in every way. As this was the first time I have been away without my partner, I was a little apprehensive. I need not have been. Not only was this property in a well lit friendly residential area, but the owners Brian and Lesley lived locally and I knew they were the other end of the phone if needed. The apartment is exactly as described on the website. A two minute stroll from the beach, the restaurants and cafes on the seafront and the shops. The apartment is equipped to a very high standard and was the cleanest rental property I have ever stayed in. We had UK TV, airconditioning, Wifi and a good film selection too. The beds were comfortable and we all slept like logs every night. The outdoor, heated Jacuzzi was a great bonus, the children were in it every day! I will recommend to others with confidence and will certainly return as soon as I can, hopefully with my partner next time!

An absolute pleasure...

  • 5 of 5

From first contact right through to the end of the holiday, Brian and Lesley were helpful, friendly and clearly want their clients to enjoy their holiday. They take great pride in the apartment and ensure that it is spotlessly clean for your arrival. They even take the time to show you how everything works when you arrive.

The apartment itself is well positioned. It really is two minutes' walk from the beautiful seafront of Playa Blanca!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, on our first (but not last!) visit to this lovely part of Lanzarote.

Thank you Brian and Lesley.

It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both. X

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this review! Yes, we do really want everyone to have that perfect stay. It is our job! We believe that living here, owning this property and doing everything for it ourselves makes the difference. No low quality cleaners, no agents that can never be found "out of office hours".. We are always here to look after our appreciated guests. In our retirement here, it is our living.... we have to do it properly! See you next year we suspect... .

Brilliant apartment

  • 5 of 5

After a very early start on the morning of our flight it was great to get to this lovely apartment and welcomed by Brian and Lesley.(Especially the beer). We had a great time and it was so convenient for all the restaurants and local shops. We will definitely return, thank you.

Really central - a great find!!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to the Canary Islands before, so we were a little apprehensive, but we needn't have been. After a seamless transfer from the airport-which Brian and Lesley paid for, we arrived at the penthouse. Brian was on hand to greet us and show us around the apartment and explain how everything worked. The resort of playa blanca is lovely. Really family orientated. We found some great restaurants and had 3 favourites by the time we left. We even had a local bar-where we would meet up every evening and watch the world go by. The marina area is lovely too, but we were pleased that we had booked somewhere so central. It is all literally on your doorstep. Dorado beach was a 5-10 min walk with loads of amenities. We would really recommend the penthouse and the icing on the cake was the British tv channels, great selection of films, for when you just wanted to chill out. The other bonus was not having to bring beach towels, and toiletries are provided. You could defenitely come out with just walk on luggage. We would defenitely return.

Lovely little find!

  • 5 of 5

We've just arrived back from a very pleasant stay at the Penthouse apartment, which is a stone's throw away from the front at PLaya Blanca. The apartment has everything you could possibly need, and more. Our favourite restaurant was Romantica, which we found far superior to most others and visited twice during our short stay. We also took the boat trip over to Fuerteventura for the day - a great day trip, highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for giving us yet another 5 star review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You left everything perfect and were a pleasure to meet. We believe that living here all year round and looking after this property exclusively ourselves keeps up standards and sets us apart from most others who "manage" remotely through agents..Lesley and I hope you, like so many others, return another year. you would again be so welcome.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Playa Blanca but certainly not our last. The warm welcome we received from Brian and Lesley on arrival set the tone of our holiday. We were shown around the spotlessly clean, well equipped apartment by Brian who explained everything very clearly to us. The location is great very central and handy for shops, bars, restaurants and beaches. Perfect. We had a fabulous holiday here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely apartment at a very reasonable price. We'll definitely stay here again. Thanks Brian and Lesley.

Sandra, Ray and Jennifer.

Location

Car: not necessary

Free transfer to & from the airport. No other property comes close to this. See through the search engines!

You want and need a good holiday to relax, have fun, eat well and get some sun on your back. Look no further as playa Blanca is THE best holiday town on Lanzarote, for its weather, beaches, restaurants and friendliness. We have the ideal location waiting for you.

The area is very friendly. We have two Chemists and the cost of tablets is low. We have various Doctors, we recommend Dr. Mager's on the roundabout near the bus station, he has a small hospital there too.

One Post office serves the area, it is open Monday to Friday.

There are various supermarkets, HiperDino is the largest. The best is called Roper's which is in Rubicon (not the marina) for meat and anything special. There are a few smaller ones too, they are all good.

A bus travels around Playa Blanca (Number 30) it will take you to Rubicon (Roper's) and at the other extreme to Faro Park, down the Lighthouse end. It runs from early in the morning and runs every 30 minutes until just after 10pm. It costs €1.30pp no matter where you get on or off..

There are lots of banks with cash points.

Hey, you're going on holiday and if you are reading this you are probably going to book with us or you have already, good choice! We will look after you as we live here. Some guests in various other places are given an address and have to find their own way, let themselves in and hope that the key fits. That isn't going to happen with us, we meet you, let you in, give you a tour round and give you the keys AND are on call if you need us.

A warm welcome is guaranteed.

Playa Blanca is in the County of Yaiza, which has won the award for the best kept town in the whole of Spain for many years. Playa Blanca (PB for short) has the longest walk along the sea front, it is over 10 Km, with beaches, restaurants, hotels and bars along the way. As you are central, walk to the left to Rubicon Marina where the market is held on Saturday, it also has good clothes shops, orchestral music and other night time entertainment, whilst taking in the atmosphere. Walk on further to the Papagayo award winning beach. A walk to the right will take you to the Port where you can take a boat, either around the Island or across to Lobos and Fuerteventura. Here you will also see a fish shop with the morning catch of the day. Walk on further towards the Lighthouse and you will find little beaches, watering holes and much more.

If you are a sun worshipper and like the beach you have many to choose from. If you like being by a pool there are lots of Hotels close by, where you can use their facilities, pools, restaurants etc.,

For the wine lovers, we have lots of wineries to visit in La Geria valley, you can book a tour, or if you have a car, you can go at your leisure. Another place to visit, if you like Tapas, is Playa Quemada. The restaurant is called "7 Islas". Just follow the road as far as it goes and you will find it. It is run by a lovely family. It is the biggest kept secret, known only by the locals..

PB is the most southerly point and has the best weather. We get a lovely breeze, that combined with the sunshine, is perfect. You always need to wear sun cream though. It is easy to get about as there are no hills, it is completely flat.
