About Sophie and Darren Cox

Hello, we are Sophie and Dee. We live in London, but get out to our gorgeous apartment in Playa Blanca as often as we can! We have a nine-year-old son, who loves playing on the beach and swimming in the sea, and the marina pool. We love going there for winter sun, as well as enjoying the wonderful long evenings in the summer. We are confident you will fall in love with our place as much as we have.

Sophie and Darren Cox purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Sophie and Darren Cox chose Playa Blanca

When we spotted the apartment for sale, it was love at first sight. There are hundreds of 'generic' apartments/villas in Playa Blanca, but our place really stood out as it has an authentic Spanish feel to it and is the perfect 'home from home'. Plus of course the location is fantastic - everything we need for a great holiday is in walking distance!

What makes this apartment unique

The location is unbeatable - it's on a quiet side street in the heart of the Old Town, so no booming bar noise at night; but at the end of our road, literally 1-2 minutes' walk (depending on how fast you walk!) you reach the sea, restaurants, bars and shops. Dorada Beach, where we spend much of our time, is 3-4 minutes along the promenade, and the beautiful Marina, with its twice weekly markets, is 5 minutes walk along from there.

The apartment itself is a joy to relax in, with table and chairs on the all-day-sun front patio, Wifi and everything you need for self-catering.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“What a fantastic apartment, so close to the promenade and thanks so much for the recommendations. We will be back!” - Rose and Bill Gladstone

“What a breath of fresh air to actually be as close to the beach as you said you were! Two weeks was not enough!” - David and Sue Rowen

5* apartment in Playa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at this apartment. It is really outstanding. Tastefully decorated, fully equipped kitchen, free wifi and Sky. Its in a prime location in Playa Blanca, close enough to the beach and restaurants but without the noise. We were really impressed, would recommend and will definitely book again when we next visit Lanzarote.

Lovely apartment in a lovely place. Perfect location, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. We’ve stayed in many villas and apartments and I usually spend the first day washing sheets, even in James Villas who are (allegedly) the best around, but this apartment was spotless and everything was clean and fresh-smelling. Just great! Thank you.

A wonderful holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've had the most wonderful holiday. It really has been perfect, the apartment, location and Playa Blanca itself. It's been great and the weather has been amazing. Thanks so much for renting to us. We're already thinking about next year! Can't recommend it enough. Really, really lovely. Had a great time.

Love it, Love it, Love it!

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews, but this place deserves one. From the moment we opened the door, we realised this was not a standard holiday apartment. We have stayed in lots and they normally only provide the cheap basics to fill a few tick boxes.

This place has everything you need, and you can see a lot of thought has been put in to creating a lovely, inviting home. The balcony catches the sun all day and we watched the beautiful sunsets every night. I didn't plan to do too much cooking, but we relaxed and dined on the patio almost every day.

Playa Blanca is such a fabulous place and to be able to walk to the bottom of the road and have such a lovely beach, so close, with waterside bars and restaurants was such a joy.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We loved it so much, we have already booked for next year.

Great location. Apartment had all that we needed.

  • 4 of 5

The power went 5 times. 4 of these were because of the RCD tripping, so there is an earth fault somewhere in the circuit. The apartment was spotlessly clean and in a great location.The WiFi was a great addition. Perhaps time for a bit of an update on the decor. We would stay again if in Lanzarote.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great trip, and that you found the apartment spotless and in a great location! Thanks for the feedback about the power trips, we have fed this back to the manager who will sort it out immediately. With regards to the decor, the place is painted throughout every year, and the style is normally what our guests rave about, but we all have different tastes! So pleased that you would like to stay there again - we'd be delighted to welcome you back, and always offer a repeat bookers' discount. Let us know dates when you have them. Meanwhile have a great year, warmest regards, Sophie and Dee
