“Disappointing”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We booked this apartment in the North of the island as it looked to meet our needs exactly. We were drawn by the hot tub, the garden and roof terrance, the wi-fi and the washing machine (sad I know- but true!)
The village is very interesting and certainly worth visiting, there are a number of bars, and restaurants, a supermarket and a couple of other shops. There is a craft market on Saturdays and Cesar Manrique's house is in the village and something worth seeing.
The apartment was somewhat 'quirky'. There was a main room with sofa bed, TV (free sat channels only), small kitchenette with fridge, two burner gas hob (take a lighter - the matches go damp), multi function microwave that worked well and some under surface storage covered by a small curtain. A set of drawers, some curtaining and the TV separated the lounge from the bedroom. The bed was a full sized double but the mattress was ready for replacement. There were two bedside tables & lights. There was a ceiling fan in the lounge. There was no heating in the property. (It can get cool at this altitude in winter). The bathroom was more than adequate; toilet, sink and shower with plenty of hot water (the boiler tripped out twice while we were there but was reset by the owner within 24hrs) The owner is next door and has an additional entrance from the apartments garden which she didn't use while we were there.
The shower was rather uncontrollable as the water pressure was high and the shower head often flew off its holder. The shower rail was adrift from the wall but still usable.
There was no washing machine - but we 'think' the owner would have done washing for us if asked.
There was no wi-fi in the property (or on the terrace) fortunately there is free wi-fi at the library in the village which is about 15 mins walk. The wi-fi at the library is on all the while which is very useful - and there is a seat outside the library!
The 'inflatable' hot tub on the roof terrace was not on when we arrived and despite being switched on as soon as we arrived it unfortunately never made it to a comfortable temperature. (We were staying in November when the outside temp does fall and this probably affected it)
The outside furniture is best describe as 'random'. The loungers were rusty but worked and there were some old cushions stored in a downstairs 'glory hole' There was also a rusty table, some plastic chairs and a very very used sun umbrella (see picture) (There was a newer one in the outside store) The roof terrace was totally overlooked by the next door neighbours - luckily they didn't seem to spend much time on their veranda. There was some old bamboo fencing that afforded a bit of protection from the wind. The view from the roof terrace, if you ignored the derelict hovel and dog just below, was excellent as you could see all the way to the coast. (take your binoculars)
The small garden/path was also overlooked and overgrown and didn't get much sun at this time of the year but might be fine in summer. There was a concrete bench, a large parasol, a table and some more chairs.
We realised that this was rural Lanzarote and so barking/howling dogs, flies, lots of pigeons and bleating sheep are perhaps to be expected.

“A real disaster”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Very small housing, poor living room, bad mattress, no tv other than arabic senders.
Bad smell when entering, non-cleaned jacuzzi on roof terrace with rusty chairs.Almost every night several dogs, including the ones of the owner, were barking. So bad that we decided to leave and we rented an apartment in Puerto de la Cruz. On top of that, in winter it is in hilly Haria approx. 4 degrees Celsius colder than on coast level.

A charming, rustic cottage on the edge of the lovely village of Haria - was just perfect for us. Great views of the countryside and sea from the roof terrace ( private and good for sunbathing) and lovely private outdoor space. The interior is small but homely, well laid out and has a lot of charm - it is much better than in the pictures. It is about a 5 minute + walk into the village, where there is a supermarket, a couple of bars in the square and a couple of places to eat - virtually no tourists and very friendly. Nice walks and views. I would say you need a car as there are lots of really nice beaches etc to explore. Having never been to Lanzarote before, I was dubious, but Haria and the North of the Island were beautiful. The owner Lesley was helpful but respected our privacy. I would recommend for a simple, relaxing break... I wanted to stay longer!

“Perfect for a quiet couple break”
Reviewed August 14, 2012 for a stay in August 2011

Beautiful little 1 bed apartment. Perfect base for sight seeing around the island as most things are in the north. Stunning views. No pool, but the beach is a very short drive. You need a car if staying here. The couple who own this are the nicest hosts we've ever met. Not intrusive, just very friendly, helpful, great recommendations and generally happy people. Wish we could have stayed longer.
