There is a utility room with freezer and washing machine. Your casita is private secluded and not overlooked, you are surrounded by nature.
On arrival we were welcomed by Jan and Jayne who proved friendly and informative throughout. We stayed for almost two weeks and never tired of it's quiet, private location providing shelter from any wind. Internally we found the casita to exceed our expectations and lack for nothing and it was a joy to wake up to the view through the arch window to Arrieta and the coast. We walked to Arrieta during the daytime and evening - a torch was provided in the casita - 15 to 30 minutes depending on direction and amount of food/drink consumed. Approach from the road is via a maintained hard core track which is suitable for motor vehicles however due to heavy rain in the weeks before we arrived I found it prudent to carry my road bike to the casita - by the way it's a great location for cycling with some moderately challenging climbs nearby which didn't prevent me covering Orzola and Yaiza in one return ride.
A vast selection of books, DVDs, CDs, WiFi and TV, including BBC/ITV and Sky provided home entertainment after an evening meal at home or at the Arepera bar in Mala (be prepared to share the plates are LARGE). We have scores of experiences in rental properties and found no faults with this providing a most relaxing and homely stay.
We want to tell people about this idyllic place to stay in the beautiful North of Lanzarote but only after we have secured our dates for next year. This immaculate villa on a hillside overlooking the peaceful seaside town of Arietta exceeded our expectations from the description on the website. The lovely friendly owners met us when we arrived and made us feel welcome with the help of a bottle of cold fizz they had left for us in the fridge. They told us the best places to see and eat out locally but after a stocking up with food and drink from the nearby supermarket we were more than happy to eat in and watch the sun go down. The villa is equipped with everything you need including an excellent entertainment system if you can drag yourself in from the terrace. Highly recommended.
As soon as we stepped over the threshold we wanted to buy the property! Unfortunately Jan and Jane were not forthcoming!!!
If you were going to design the ideal holiday retreat for two in Lanzarote this would be it. It is positioned in the village of Tabayesco which is well placed for all that the north of Lanzarote has to offer as well as easy access to the south. It's position up a small track with views down to the sea and up to the hills makes it very peaceful and we spent many a happy hour sitting on the sheltered terraces just reading and taking in the views aided by the odd glass of wine!! As very keen walkers there are many walks either direct from the property or a short drive away. There are excellent maps and walk books provided.
The property itself is very well equipped, a home from home. Jan, realizing that Judith was a keen cook even provided us with a new set of saucepans! There is a library of books which we made good use of during our month's stay. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable with glorious views out of the window. There was also an electric blanket and a small electric heater for chillier nights. Even though we did not need to use them it was nice to know they were there, something which had been lacking in other properties we have stayed in. Jan and Jane were excellent hosts. Available if we had any questions but very aware of our privacy. We had regular visits from Clifford the cat who came to make sure we were OK and to be fed his daily olive! He is very well behaved and if you are not an animal lover he does know that he is not supposed to enter the property!!
There is a local supermarket just down the road at the garage in Arietta. We did a large shop in the Euro Spar in Costa Teguise which has a larger selection of goods. There is a small freezer provided at the property as well as a washing machine in a small outside room which were very useful as we were staying for a month. There is also wi-fi. We also visited the market on a Saturday morning in Haria where we bought fresh fruit and veg from the community co-op which also has a butcher, fresh fish counter and a deli where you can buy excellent take away home made dishes. We cannot recommend this property highly enough. We frequently stay in self catering properties both at home and abroad and this must rate as the best. We have already decided to return next February. A big thank you to Jan and Jane.
Casita Amanacer is as far removed from the "resort" image of Lanzarote as it's possible to get. In the undeveloped north of the island up a quiet track amid a magnificent cactus garden and with wonderful views to the coast, it is perfectly situated for hiking, exploring and dining in little fish restaurants - a car is essential.
The property is extremely comfortable with absolutely everything you could need from basics in the kitchen to beach towels. Jan and Jayne could not be better hosts, there when needed but careful to respect guests' privacy.
Lanzarote itself is full of delightful surprises, pristine white sand beaches, stunning villages and good restaurants not to mention the astonishing, beautifully protected volcanic landscape.
Tabayesco is well situated for sightseeing and lovely restuarants.Casita Amanacer

We will definitely be back! Tricia & Richard.
Very much enjoyed our stay at this spotless, well maintained Manrique inspired casita set in beautiful Manrique inspired gardens. A warm friendly welcome on arrival set the tone for the holiday. The furniture and fittings are of excellent, comfortable quality, the kitchen is well fitted with a proper cooker and all utensils that are needed. The views are captivating. Well locating near the LZ1 highway and a decent garage shop close by. Would highly recomend to anyone wanting a relaxing break in real Lanzarote. Thank you Jan and hope to see you again.Denise and Dave. South Shields.
