Overview

Playa Blanca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

APARTMENTS MARCASTEL is a private complex with several of the apartments rented out for holidays. Situated in a quiet area of Playa Blanca, yet only a few minutes walk from the beautiful Dorada beach, the Rubicon Marina and the Central Avinada, with their many fine restaurants, bars and shopping.

Marcastel is therefore ideally situated to relax away from it all yet still enjoy all the amenities of the resort without the need to drive.

It is about 35 minutes by taxi or car from the airport. Alternatively transport can be arranged both ways.

ACCOMODATION:

This comfy, bright, spacious well equipped first floor apartment, comprises of: Large lounge, with dinning area off.

Fully equipped kitchen with full oven, fridge-freezer & microwave.

1 double bedroom.

1 twin bedroom.

Bathroom with shower and washing machine.

Large balconies to front & rear with views to the Ajaches Mountains offer ample space to relax, dine or take advantage of private sun bathing from dawn till dusk.

Playa Blanca is the most southerly resort on Lanzarote with views across to Fuerteventura, only a mere 11 Km by ferry, which leaves from the harbor several times a day.

Beautiful and relaxed, with a delightful promenade, interesting shops and superb restaurants within ten minute walk from the apartment.

Take a walk by the sea. A paved promenade now runs for approximately 4 miles along the length of the resort,

From the new marina to east, taking in the harbour and continuing out to the light house on the western point.

A drive up to Femes early evening not only rewards you with good food, the view is awesome.

If its fish takes your fancy then it is well worth the drive to the village of El-Golfo, again best early evening to appreciate the colours & spectacle of the landscape, ocean & sun sets.

It has many advantages for those looking for sun, sea and sand with a variety of beaches close to the apartment, said to be some of the best on the island.

For the more energetic, the resort offers a range of activities including diving, sailing, water sports, tennis, par 3 golf course, walking etc and it is an excellent base for sight seeing.

OUT & ABOUT, EXCURSIONS / PLACES TO VISIT

About Beryl Harrison

Our first visit to Lazoarote was twenty one years ago, when traveling from the Airport to our accommodation in the Old town of Puerto Del Carmen "Stunning scenery, no high rise buildings, everything clean and bright, all topped off with a a view over the bay and a magnificent Sunset" I instantly fell in love with Lanzarote.

It was on that very first visit that we put down a deposit on an apartment in Puerto Del Carmen which we took over six months later and where we spent many memorable holidays.

Playa Blanca had began to develop at a pace and we found ourselves spending more time there and when they began building the new Marina we decided to look for a property close by and the rest is history.

Beryl Harrison purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Beryl Harrison chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

Apartments Marcastel is situated in a quiet central area of Playa Blanca, only a few minutes walk from the beautiful Dorada beach, the Rubicon Marina and the Central Avinada, with their many fine restaurants, bars and shopping.

It is therefore ideally situated to relax away from it all yet still enjoy all the amenities of the resort without the need to drive and is an ideal base from which to explore the Island and all it has to offer.

absolutely home from home

  • 5 of 5

been in lots of apartments in fact different apartments 4 times per year abroad but believe me this the most spacious smartest and best equipped of the lot. lovely mountain views and so very quiet and sedate.

15 mins walk to lovely town of playa blanca and only 20 minutes walk the opposite way to the absolutely gorgeous marina rubin so spot in the middle to walk both ways.

around the town no.30 bus service runs opposite the apartment also taking you to the bus station. only 1 euro.

the no.30 bus also takes you to colarado town which is the gateway to the famous papygayo beaches.

sorry for long winded review but absolutely delighted with our stay at 9b marcastell

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 4 of 5

We can only reiterate the comments expressed by previous visitors to Beryl and Phil's delightful apartment. The two balconies are a definite plus especially the one at the front for a bit of late afternoon sunbathing. Situated in a pleasant small development mixed with full-time residents, it felt like being part of the community. Great location a few minutes walk to the fabulous Dorada Beach and all the town's amenities and restaurants, yet without any significant noise disturbance, apart from the occasional coach stopping at the hotels nearby. The apartment was clean and well equipped and whilst it sleeps 4 people, it is ideal for 2. We shall definitely be back!

Great Location. Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Playa Blanca is a beautiful quiet location. Plenty of good walks both on path and treks. The apartment is in a great location, close to town and beaches. Apartment was spotless and perfectly formed with good cooking facilities. The two balconies are a real bonus. The pool at Sun Royal is beautiful but we only used it once as we preferred the beach at Playa Dorada.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. It was spotlessly clean and the kitchen is very well equipped. The fact that there are two balconies means that you can have sunshine all day - breakfast at the back with views of the mountains and then afternoon and evening sun at the front.

There is a very good supermarket at the end of the road and the beach and restaurants are all within walking distance. Ideally situated for walks to either the marina or the town - both along the lovely seafront walkway.

Information from Beryl and Phil was spot on with very good directions to the apartment and also lots of info on the area. They rang us before we went and again on our return just to make sure everything was ok.

Would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a quiet area to stay in but with all amenities close by - we will be back!!

Last November we went to the Marcastel appartment at Playa Blanca for a couple of days. The weather was allright, but the appartment was fantastic! Terraces both on front and back, so always the choice to sit in the sun or shade.

Quiet surroundings, but not far from the beach and centre.

The appartment itself had everything you'd need, with a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, tv/dvd etc. Really recommanded if you're looking for a place to stay in Playa Blanca that's both relaxing but also close to centre.

LANZARTOTE

A’ Jewel in the crown of the Atlantic. Palm trees, mountains, white sand, black sand, moonscapes, stunning sun sets and quality development with no high rise. Set 68 miles off the western coast of Africa, Lanzarote is the most exclusive of the Canary Islands.

Views of the Fire Mountains and the sunsets are among many of the outstanding features of a stay on the island. Where else can you enjoy enjoy sun shine with an average temperature of 24ºC all year round and experience hardly any rain.

PLAYA BLANCA

Once a tiny fishing village on the southern most tip of the island it is now a major resort with full amenities, luxury development and boasting a fabulous new marina.

It is adjacent to the Timafay national park (fifty square kilometres of volcanoes and lava fields, where the visitor’s centre restaurant cooks meals by volcanic power) and the beautiful Papago beaches with their strikingly contrasting white sands.

Golf, diving, sailing, surfing, fishing are all close by and Ferries depart regularly every day from the harbour to the island of Fuerteventura.
