A very unique property that we were lucky enough to stumble across on the Internet. Any future trip to Lanzarote will certainly see us back here. We have been spoiled now for accommodation as we will always expect this standard (and that’s coming from seasoned travellers). We thought we’d found Paradise.
A clean, attractive, solar heated pool, lovely views either side, all set in a nice quiet, Canarian village (but with excellent eateries). Plenty to see in the region (including great markets) but travelling further afield is no problem either as the island isn’t that big. It was perfect for us as we really do not like the tourist towns.
We had the use of two bikes that took us to local villages and beaches which was enjoyable and good exercise (the roads mostly have cycle lanes).
The quality of the accommodation is second to none, so clean, with comfy beds, great cooking facilities and range of pots and utensils plus a full size fridge! Nice sitting area with an endless supply of DVDs/books for evenings in (we were here in winter). Lots of outdoor facilities with chairs, sunloungers, tables, plus a BBQ and a sheltered area with further seating around the side of the poolhouse.
I would mention though that outside of winter you may be wakened rather early by the light streaming in so bring an eye mask! It wasn’t a problem for us in winter as it didn’t become light until 7:30am.
Even though the owners, Julie and Rich, are in their house 30 metres away you are not overlooked and feel as though you are here on your own. However, if you need them they are there and always more than helpful with advice or any practical matters. They have struck the balance perfectly between being attentive and allowing you your privacy.
Julie and Rich have rescue dogs that are adorable, friendly and well-behaved. If you like dogs then you’re in for a treat and if you don’t like dogs you will find they won’t trouble you.
The Poolhouse has a guest book which is crammed full of positive comments. I can’t understand why there are so few reviews on the Owners Direct website as everyone who comes here enthuses about it (apart from one couple out of dozens).
We highly recommend the Poolhouse, it has to be seen to be believed.
