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.

Smashing apartment in a very covenient location
We had another good holiday, our 5th, in Playa Blanca in this lovely apartment. Its location is the best we've had for access to the beach, the promenade , excellent eating places, and no parking problems.
Two minor comments; we couldn't get the hair drier to work but that is easily sorted and we would like to have had 2 front door keys.
Delighted that you had a great holiday, and that you loved the apartment and its location! Thanks for the heads up about the hairdryer - we have bought a new one today. We recommend that guests leave the keys in the key box whenever they go out, to avoid the chances of losing them, plus this means that if guests return to the apartment separately, there is always a key waiting for them. Have a wonderful Golden Anniversary year - and we'll be delighted to welcome you back in the future. All the best, Sophie
Great Apartment, Great Location, Great Weather!
Already booked for next year, same weather again please!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay so much - and are delighted to have booked you in again - this time for longer! Thanks for your amazing feedback by email, it's lovely to hear that our place was better appointed and more homely than the other "more generic" places you have stayed in - and we look forward to welcoming you back. Meanwhile have a great year! All the best, Sophie and Dee
Great location and resort, but.....
The apartment is quite close to all the amenities, and was probably a much nicer place to spend a week a few years ago, but is showing its age. The springs of the mattress were very prominent, which makes the bed not the most comfortable, and there were various other 'little' things not quite working. Despite reporting the WiFi not working, the chap who rang us back while we were out, didn't ring back at 7:45 as promised, so we had no WiFi while we were there. Couldn't be bothered to chase it - we were on holiday and have enough of chasing people up in the UK! Despite that we had a great week and loved Playa Blanca. We'll probably be back - but not here.
We pride ourselves on looking after our guests, and providing a lovely 'home from home' in a wonderful location (hence all our great reviews) and it is with a heavy heart that we say - for the very first time ever - we would refuse to book this person again. He did report an issue with the wifi three days into his holiday - something that has not happened before or since - we contacted him within 30 minutes of his message to sort it out, and were on the receiving end of a barrage of abuse and insults. We got our internet person to call him within 15 minutes, but the guest didn't answer his phone, despite repeated attempts to contact him, and we heard nothing more from him. Upon investigation after his stay, we found the cause of the wifi issue - he had unplugged everything including our internet TV! The guest made no reference to any other little things 'not quite working' - what these were still remains a mystery, and had he flagged up any issues we would have attended to them immediately, as always. With regards to 'showing its age', the apartment was fully decorated this summer. We feel this guest would be better suited to a 5-star hotel rather than a self-catering apartment, and are delighted that all our other guests love our place, many of them rebooking over and over again.
Ideal holiday apartment,sophie a pleasure to deal with,,all in all a great wee spot for a relaxing break
Ah thanks Robert! Pleasure to have you there, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We'd be delighted to welcome you back again, so give me a shout if you'd like to book again. Meanwhile, have a great Christmas. All the best, Sophie :)
Apartment nice and plenty of room, was well kept and very clean, the sky package on tv was great. Apartment short walk from beach and close to all the bars and restaurants, could not want for anything. Will book again.
We're so glad you had a lovely holiday, and will be delighted to welcome you back again soon, meanwhile thanks for booking with us. Best wishes, Sophie and Darren
Great holiday, lovely apartment.
We had a great stay in this apartment, very helpful owners and brilliant location. The only downside was the fair at the carpark, very noisy. We soon got used to the noise and obviously not down to the owners. All in all we had a lovely stay, suited us down to the ground. We would happily book again if we come back to Lanzarote.
So glad you had a lovely holiday in our apartment. Shame about the night of the festival - they do that about once a year, and the whole of Playa Blanca get treated to the music, as they do love to celebrate!! Glad you had a great time, and we'll be delighted to welcome you back again, just let me know when you have dates in mind and we'll get you booked in again, with the repeat bookers' discount of course! All the best, Sophie and Dee :)
