Ben and Sue are great hosts! We were really well and quick informed at every e-mail contact. Got all the information we needed. Together with beautiful tips, practical 'good to knows' and local tips. At arrival we were welcomed in the apartment with a nice bottle of wine and even the first breakfast supplies in the fridge! The apartment is great, the view beatiful and peacefull, the swimming pool big and warm (especially of you keep it covered when not in use). Perfect for the last hours of the sun! The patio of the appartment is cosy. We had some great breakfasts here. The island hides a lot of surprising beauty. We were really impressed by it. The famous artist Cesar Manrique made it his goal to make the beauty of the landscape and it's stunning feautures visible in his famous projects, which are spread all over the island. Even if you are not interested in art you should at least visit the 'El Diablo' restaurant in the Timanfaya National Park where your food is roasted on the heat of the vulcano. And also Jameos del agua in the north west is really worth a visit. It is a pool, restaurant and concert hall built and hidden in a lava Bubble, really amazing, a built boy's dream! Or his Mirador in the north. Besides that we had some great swims at beautiful remote beaches, had great tapas in Teguise (Cantina, Tapas y Tablas) and fish in El Golfo. We had a really great time in Lanzarote and the El Patio Apartment. Thanks Sue and Ben. The appartment (and the island) is worth a visit!

I stay on the Island (lanzarote) several weeks of the year. I looked forward to the peace and quiet of Casita de Femes in the beautiful mountains. The villa was tranquil, characteristically Canarian. Ben and Sue were very communicative, and I enjoyed my stay here.

We hadden een vroege vlucht en kwamen eerder aan. Dat was geen enkel probleem! Er stonden wat basisbehoeften in de koelkast, dat was erg attent. Op een gegeven moment was er een probleem met de internetverbinding, dit werd snel opgelost! Rachel gaf ook een aantal tips voor bezienswaardigheden.

Très bel appartement dans une villa typique de Lanzarote avec une grande piscine. Le patio est agréable pour y déjeuner ou reposer dans le hamac. Très bien localisé, un peu isolé et à la fois près de tout. Parfait pour de bonnes vacances. Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement. Sue et Ben sont parfaits !
