Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, well equiped, close to beach & all other amienaties

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 from the airport by taxi or car. Alternatively there is a half hourly bus service direct from the airport to Playa Blanca Bus Station. (Less than 3 Euros per person.) with a Taxi from the bus station to the apartment 4 Euros.

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, both 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) It is 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.

Walk or drive a little further east and enjoy the white sandy beaches of Papagayo

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 is an excellent base for sight seeing and 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.

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

Lovely, very clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

From the very start the owners were extremely helpful answering any questions I had.

The apartment was very clean and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay.

Being only a short walk from the beach, restaurants and shops made it even more perfect and we shall definitely being going back in the near future.

The owners really couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

Very good value for money.

Thanks again Beryl and Phil

Spacious, clean & well equipped. Helpful owners.

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal for a small family, a couple or a group of friends. It is exceptionally well equipped, clean and well presented. It is only a short walk from the beach and shops. A quiet location with amazing views from one of the verandas towards the Marina Rubicon. The owners are very friendly, helpful & informative. Would highly recommend it and intend to go back - if it's available when we want to return as it's very popular and has unfortunately not been available for 2 subsequent planned trips to Playa Blanca. Will definitely try again!

Very Highly Recommended

Just back from an 11 night stay in October 2016 -superb holiday. The apartment was excellent, very clean, spacious and very well equipped with the bonus of having two balconies to catch the sun all day. The location is ideal in a quiet residential complex and yet within easy walking distance of a good supermarket, the Dorada beach and restaurants. Playa Blanca has a lovely seafront promenade and you can walk for miles in either direction. There is a good local bus service stopping outside the apartment that takes you around the resort. Beryl and Phil were easy to communicate with, very helpful with the booking and provided us with detailed information on the apartment and the local area. We will definitely be back and are already planning our next visit in 2017.

Couldn't have wished for anything better

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we entered we knew we were going to have a great holiday. The apartment is spotlessly clean, bright and airy, has everything you could possibly need and just feels so comfortable. The location is perfect, within easy walking distance to beach, shops, bars, restaurants and the beautiful marina but also has the advantage of being quiet and peaceful. It is obvious that this apartment is loved and cherished by its very friendly owners Phil and Beryl and well looked after in their absence by Lyn. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to any of our friends and will return again ourselves.

After many years of self catering holidays, this apartment surpassed anything previously. We hope to return next year. Excellent location too.

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.
