I am very lucky to live on Lanzarote and my mother Helen Dodson lives in the UK. Together we manage the bookings for the apartment. This 2 bedroom apartment belongs to my mother and I have a 1 bedroom apartment on the same complex. The property reference for it is 1987761. My mother works in a school and comes to stay with me in Lanzarote during the school holidays. Even after visiting the island for 20 years, we still love exploring and it only takes a view or an incredible sunset and we fall in love with Lanzarote all over again.
Why Louise chose Puerto del Carmen
I fell in love with Lanzarote for the marvellous restaurants and local wines, the dramatic landscape and of course the weather! But most importantly, the island is safe and despite the tourist trade, it has retained much of its old-world charm. The islanders are well-known for their friendliness and hospitality and we are always made to feel welcome.
What makes this Apartment unique
The complex is peaceful and relaxing. The gardens are beautifully tended and importantly the swimming pool is immaculate and maintained to the highest standard. The apartment is ideally located. It is just a short stroll to the charming Old Town Harbour bars, restaurants and the local beach, Playa Chica. While the busier seafront promenade, its fantastic range of restaurants, bars and seemingly never-ending beach, Playa Grande, are just a 10 minute walk. After we refurbished the apartment, we loved to stay at home and luxuriate in the style and comfort of our surroundings. We had everything we needed! We however, still managed to go out for a long and leisurely lunch occasionally! Now, because I have moved to Lanzarote and I have my own bungalow, guests can stay at the apartment all year round.

A fantastic apartment Louise was a fantastic host
Louise is a beautiful lady with an amazing apartment we had everything we could wish for. Louise showed us everything we needed to know if we had any problem we could call her at anytime. The only problem we had was that out travel agents didn’t print out our boarding passes for us but Louise done this for us and dropped them off to us . I will stay in one of her apartments again and would recommend her to all my friends who holiday in Lanzarote . So thank you so much for everything Louise you are an amazing host Lynn ,Davy,Janet and Mal
Everything about this property is 5 star. There is nothing that I can add that would improve this accommodation. It is a home from home holiday. Special thanks to Louise for meeting us at the airport and also taking us back to the airport after a fantastic 10 days holiday.
Wonderful apartment, fantastic host, beautiful location
From the first correspondence to last message to say thank you and good bye Louise could not have been more helpful.
The apartment is a home from home with stunning views of the hills around and also Fuerteventura. The apartment is close to the port, and beautiful cove for swimming/snorkelling. It is in a great location for tour trips out too.
It is a spacious home for a family of 4. The kitchen is well equipped, the fridge is a great added bonus with the ice maker for the hot days. The terrace gets the sun from morning till night. Beds are comfy and the satellite tv means if you just want a chilled evening watching up to date movies it’s not a problem.
We will be returning soon as have fallen in love with the country as well as the fantastic apartment and friendliness of Louise and Helen.
Perfection in Lanzarote
We are literally leaving this fabulous appartement today and I must say with some sadness. It's been absolutely easily the loveliest and most glamorous place weve ever stayed in, wonderful ensuites,amazing terrace,super comfy beds and full range of sky tv. Louise was a delight to deal with very professional always just a call or message away should any issue pop up. I have no problem recommending this property and genuinely hope to come back. Thank you Louise ,oh and welcome pack was much appreciated too
Our stay was tremendous. Louise and Helen were at the apartment to greet us. We arrived at 7.30pm so the the welcome pack came in handy.
louise and her mum went through everything with us including the wonderful tv package with all the sports channels and superb movie channels.
The apartment was very spacious and spotless, a real home from home.
The patio area was very impressive with four very comfortable loungers.
Louise was a fantastic host and went above and beyond for us.
Our flight was not leaving till 7.30 pm and she let us stay in the apartment till 2.00pm.
Then came and picked up all our cases and brought them back for us at 5.00 pm and transferred them into a taxi.
This has never happened to us before and we would highly recommend this apartment and the owner.
I booked the apartment for one week in July 2019. The holiday was a 'getaway from it all' with my daughter. It was a perfect place to enjoy our mum/daughter time. Stunning apartment with perfect attention to detail, everything had been thought about and nothing was missing. A real home from home. Very large, private balcony, perfect for sunbathing, and very quiet. Great beds and bathrooms, massive fridge freezer and beautiful accessories and furniture. The apartment is in a central location so close to everything. Only a short walk to the harbour in the old town or to the beach in the new town. Louise and Helen were the perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful. When we arrived there was a welcome pack, which was much appreciated. Also, Louise and Helen picked us up from the airport and took us back at the end of the week. Lovely personal touches which make all the difference. I would definitely recommend this apartment, it is top quality. Thank you Louise and Helen for a perfect stay. Hope to see you again in the future. Linda & Linzi.
