  • 5 of 5
The Penthouse is in the perfect position in the lovely village of Playa Blanca. It is immaculate and spotlessly clean with absolutely everything you need for a perfect holiday. Truly a home from home. Brian and Lesley are fabulous hosts and will do everything they can to enhance your stay. For those on a more restricted budget, Brian and Lesley have a great apartment called Casa Sun, which is on a quiet development on the edge of the village.

Truly a luxury apartment with absolutely everythin

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Lanzarote. My boyfriend and I stayed at this Penthouse apartment. We have travelled a fair bit, but have never found anywhere as good as this before. It is perfectly located in the charming “Old Town” of Playa Blanca, inhabited by friendly local people. We were pleasantly surprised that it was so quiet and relaxed, yet only a few minutes from the beach and restaurants on the lovely seafront promenade. This could possibly rank as the top holiday apartment in Playa Blanca – which we think is the best resort on this Island by far! The equipment in this apartment is hard to believe. It really has everything, real coffee and maker, quality juicer, very comfortable memory mattress bed, top quality everything… Brand new 42 inch TV with UK channels and a hard drive with about 600 free films to watch! The huge sun terrace has a wonderful heated Jacuzzi and even a bar too! Everything was absolutely spotless. We had to provide nothing. Included was tea, coffee, toiletries, water, milk, sugar, wine, fruit and even a couple of welcoming beers! Even large quality beach towels were provided. These owners have really thought of everything. As they live locally, we met them. They couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. We read their visitors books and, like everyone else it would seem, we rate this apartment five stars all the way. We will definitely return as soon as we can and would recommend this holiday apartment to all others with complete confidence.

Wonderful Apartment, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
The Penthouse is truly a luxury apartment. Everything exactly as described on the website. It is refreshingly clean and fitted and equipped to a very high standard indeed. The owners Brian & Lesley were welcoming and very helpful both with the booking arrangements and whilst on our holiday in Playa Blanca. Everything you could possibly need is within a few hundred yards away, including a lovely sandy beach. After 20 years of renting self catering properties, this has to be the best we have ever stayed in ! We are already planning to book again for next year and would certainly recommend this excellent apartment to others.
Many Thanks,
Ian & Glenda (tel 01634 374701)

Owner's Response: After seven years of giving holidays to guests at our luxury Penthouse, it is so very rewarding to receive appreciation of our efforts like this. We now have a total of 27 different "repeat guests". We will keep trying to improve even further to provide the very best holiday accomodation possible. Thank you both for this kind review.

Gorgeous Apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd visit to Playa Blanca but the first time that we have been able to find good self catering accommodation within "old" Playa Blanca village itself. What a find - The Penthouse is a large, clean and airy apartment that is literally 2 minutes from the sea front, restaurants and shopping area. It is extremely well equipped and well cared for by Brian and Lesley, who were very friendly and helpful hosts. The big sun terrace is great, particularly with the additional luxury of the hot tub - great after a long tiring day (or night!). Breakfast on the terrace was a real pleasure. We enjoy cooking and found that the kitchen was very well equipped for our purposes.

Within Playa Blanca we would recommend La Chalanita restaurant for a meal thats a cut above many others in the area (although we can't fault any of the restaurants we've eaten in). On the sea front we found Spices Indian restaurant to be just as good as those at home. Since our previous visit a large HyperDino supermarket has opened and this is a big plus point - stocks everything you could need while self catering and is very central. It has excellent fish and meat counters.

Playa Blanca is our favourite resort in Lanzarote - we wouldn't go anywhere else now. It has everything there you could want without being too large and too crowded. We wouldn't hesitate to return to the Penthouse ourselves and would strongly recommend it to others. Thank you Brian and Lesley!

Brilliant apartment in best resort in Lanzarote

  • 5 of 5
This is our 5th stay at the Penthouse so there cannot be anything wrong, it is convenient for restaurants,shops and beach,all within 300 metres.
It is kept clean and maintained by the owners, and is stocked with everything you might need for your holiday. Brian and Lesley live locally and provide as little or as much help or information as you may require.
Playa Blanca has so many restaurants and bars of different types (spanish,chinese,indian english etc) it is difficult to recommend any particular one but we have never been disappointed.
In the listing the owners say all you need bring is your toothbrush and beach towels, this is very true.(It does exactly what it says on the tin !!!)
We are now about to make our booking for 2011.

Playa Blanca is the most southerly resort on Lanzarote and has many advantages for those who are looking for Sun, Sea and Sand as well as good fish restaurants that generally host the catch of the day. From Playa Blanca's seafront you can see across to Fuerteventura, which is a mere 11 Km by ferry. Ferries cross to the island several times a day from the main harbour. The Penthouse is set back a couple of streets from the front which is populated with a variety of beaches, notably Playa Dorada, Papagayo and Playa Flamingo. Restaurants are in abundance, most of them are very good. One of the best restaurants is just around the corner from the apartment (literary steps away) 'Los Hervideros'. We have a welcoming (informational) file and video. On arrival guests will receive a bottle of wine, a basket of fresh fruit, fresh coffee, tea, sugar, salt & pepper, milk and water. You will find the area has a relaxed atmosphere. You must stay at this wonderful apartment, you will love it.

Other Activities: Paint balling, Camel riding, Go-Karting, Crazy Golf, Children's Playgrounds, live coverage of football matches and a Quiz night at the Local Pub.

We provide the little things that make all the difference... for example: - plug adaptors for your appliances, tools for the Barbeque etc. You will LOVE staying in this wonderful Penthouse... the atmosphere on the Terrace is fantastic!
