Modern kitchen with Stainless steel front appliances. A separate laundry room with a 40 liter hot water heater, 7 kilo Whirlpool washing machine and clothes lines. A newly refurbished apartment with 2 bedrooms. 1 facing the ocean with a UK king size bed with memory foam mattress and a built in closet. Bedroom 2 facing the courtyard and outside access walk way. 2 x single beds with memory foam mattresses and built in closet. Metal shutters for privacy. 1 bathroom with WC, sink, bathtub/ shower
Our place is good for 1- 2 couples, business travelers, and families (with kids). We provide beach towels so you don't have to overload you bags with these heavy items.
High chair, baby crib/ cot / child's car seat may be provided upon request. If you rent bikes, they can be safely parked and locked inside the courtyard. The tap water is not recommended for drinking or cooking (except for boiling unpeeled vegetables like potatoes and carrots), so we always leave a sealed 8 liter container of drinking water to help you out on arrival, but we request that you replenish this with a fresh. sealed 8 liter container for the next tenant's use, before you leave .
There is an intercom/video/ buzzer at the main entrance door, press "18" and it will connect to the apartment. (Lately there has been some electrical fault on this unit) The entrance has a small step up, but is constructed with a wheelchair ramp up to the ground floor elevator. The apartment may also be accessed by wheelchair,( no thresholds) but the bathroom is just a regular bath/ toilet with a bathtub & shower. The kitchen is not handicapped equipped either.
I can be contacted by teleph(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) or +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if you have any requirements or questions. Also, please call me 1 hour before you arrive to arrange to meet, welcome you, give a short tour of the apartment, point out places of interest and hand over the keys. I can be reached on short notice should you, in the unlikely event, experience any imminent problems during your stay.
This is considered a very safe neighborhood. Walk to Church, Mosque, playground, supermarkets, bars, bake shop, coffee shops, restaurants, Corralejo beaches, and downtown shopping. Very centrally located, yet some distance away from the noisy downtown actions.
Bus stop at the ferry dock for bus 06 going to Puerto del Rosario with stops at Acua water park and Grandes Playas. You can also connect to bus 3 to the airport (Caleta de Fueste) Taxi rank on the ferry dock (taxi cabs are usually lined up only for the ferry arrivals) as well on the main street Avenida Nuestra Senora del Carmen. Close to Super Dino and Shell gasoline station, (5 minute walk to either one) , hourly ferry departures/arrivals to/ from Playa Blanca, Lanzarote and several daily trips to Lobos Island. Car rental in the ferry terminal building (CICAR) and (Cicar and Hertz) on the main street a 10 minute walk. Inpescasa supermarket 50 meters walk. Large Hiper Dino supermarket up the street, less than a 10 min walk. Otherwise, everything else is also within walking distance! If you intend to rent a car at the airport, (Cicar and Hertz) remember you may ask to drop the car off in Corralejo at no additional charge, should you not need the car for your entire stay. Check the car rental's min. hire periods in case you need a car to go back to the airport at the end of your stay, so you don't end up paying higher rates for the short term rental. The fuel policies are also important to note, some car rentals like the ones we have mentioned, have normal refueling policies. "Full out, and full in". But some like AVIS, Orlando, Gold car and the smaller ones use the sneaky "full out empty in" rule and charge you in advance at a higher than normal liter price, as well as they benefit from whatever amount of gasoline you have left in the tank upon return. I also experienced that Orlando smacked on a €270 additional deposit charge for not accepting their "in house" insurance. If you need airport pick up let us know in advance. We offer pick up and return at the end of your stay for €50,- If you drive yourself, also inquire with the host if underground dedicated parking with direct elevator access to the 1st floor, is available at only €5 per 24 hours. Nice in the summer when the heat inside the vehicle may be uncomfortable, and that the island practice of banging their doors into your car in public parking areas is a common occurence

Make sure to take note of the fiesta dates Fiestas Nuestra Senora del Carmen (first half of July).
