|Further details outdoors|
Shops and car hire nearby, a larger supermarket a stone throw away with the best prices in Puerto Del Carmen. There are mountains to the rear that are great for walking and hold fantastic views of the island. This apartment is set back away from noisy bars / clubs making it an ideal location, yet still within short walking distance of everything as it is set up above the the main strip (believe me you do not want to be in a noisy area of Puerto Del Carmen). There is an eighteen hole all grass golf course that is within short walking distance and many other more attractions to suit anyone's taste details at the apartment for your perusal (I could go on and on). The apartment also has its own private parking space off road within owned grounds. The location is just about the best I know of and our comment book within the apartment will show many positive reviews.
Price includes all service charges including cleaning costs upon arrival and departure.
Limited English Satellite TV available - Sky News / CNN / 2 film channels / Pick TV / Music TV, etc.
Linen / towels provided.
An English Gentleman named Paul who lives on the island manages the apartment for us, he will be at hand if you need to know anything during your stay. Paul will pick you up and drop you from the airport passing over the key to you. The cost of the transfers is no more than that of a taxi (at present 12 euro payable in to him) and you will not have to queue - I will need to know your flight details to arrange this for you. You can of course opt out of this service but it is highly recommended.
We ask that if you are a smoker that you smoke outside on terrace as there will be a cleaning fee payable if smoking has been found to be done indoors. All breakages MUST be told of and paid for on a like for like basis or you can in-turn replace them yourself we do not take security deposits so please respect this rule as it is part of the terms and conditions of booking.
The Canary Islands region
Holidays in Lanzarote aren't all about beaches. Granted, holidaymakers flock here to laze on the soft golden sands but there's more to this sun-drenched slice than just sunbathing.
Puerto Del Carmen is a beautiful island with many hidden pleasures. The weather is good all year around peaking in our summer but temperatures of 70 F plus in our British winter months.
Puerto del Carmen
Nestled on the coast in the southern central part of the island, it is only a 10 minute drive from Arrecife Airport and is a convenient place from which to explore Lanzarote’s tourist and cultural attractions.
History and Development
Like many places in Lanzarote, Puerto del Carmen was originally a small fishing village, and the old harbour is still a delightful place to visit, boasting some excellent seafood restaurants.
If sun and sea are your thing, then the 6 kilometre stretch of golden beaches — washed by the waters of the Atlantic — should be enough to tempt you. All of the beaches fly the Blue Flag — awarded by the EEC — for cleanliness and lack of contamination.

"Great Place - the view is an escape"
Me and my Wife stayed at the Lookout for two weeks in May 2014. We had a time time in Lanzarote visiting much of the island. We found the the apartment to be clean and comfortable with everything that… More
Thanks very much for the feedback. Always welcome.

"Lovely retreat with beautiful sea view .."
Really enjoyed our stay .. Great location central to everything you could possibly need.
Very quiet with lovely views.
Studio was clean and well maintained ..will definetly be going back soon. Noticed on reviews a very unfair opinion.
I have stayed at the Lookout on many occasions and found that it is always clean and well maintained. The owners are very approachable and on the one occasion I needed to ask for a replacement fan they were very accommodating .
They are a lovely family who really don't deserve to have inaccurate venom spat at them.
The accommodation is very good value for money with lovely views and always clean.
Thank you very much for your kind review. The previous review was unfounded, we have had a few people contact us saying how upset they were to see what these people wrote. It turns out that the guests in question were very noisy, rowing with each other on balcony after drinking, when asked to be quiet they were rude to other guests and this was their revenge. The apartment was perfectly clean as you have experienced. I myself was at the apartment directly before these people went in doing work for over a week and I know everything was perfect. Thank you again, Trip Advisor has been contacted but they are not able to do anything. Reviews are great in one way but people like this ruin it for others.

My wife and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at the ''Lookout'. We had read all the reviews prior to booking which were generally positive,so we were fully aware of what to expec… More
Thank you Thomas. I will be replacing the bed in question in March 2014 and the issue with the timer switch will be looked into. I wish I would have been told as the bed would have been replaced during your stay. Please can I add to potential guests that the stairs to the apartment although "flights" only have approximately twenty steps in total on average the same as one flight in the UK this is because the building is a traditional Spanish property, the steps are also wide so plenty of access. I just wanted to point this out and there is no view of sea from apartments below on Ground floor, we are on the First floor, only one level up. I very much appreciated your comments, look forward to seeing you back again.

"Excellent winter break"
Stayed for 1 week at the end of Jan. The studio is as described and vey comfortable for two people. The Lookout is well placed just back from the main strip at Puerto Del Carmen, you are within easy walking distance of good bars and restaurants. The view from the balcony is wonderful both in the evening and early morning, with sunshine for most of the day. It is possible to do easy walks in both directions. We would readily recommend staying at the Lookout for anyone wanting a relaxing break.

"Well worth staying at!"
Ideally located within walking distance of shops, cafes, beach and restaurants. Felt a safe area for walking in alone. Apartment was small but perfect for a couple who are looking for a central base with everything provided that is needed to either be self catering( or indeed if eating out as we were).
We stayed a week and would definately consider going back - was ideal as a base for going walks or cycles. Paul who looked after the property (and us) was so helpful.
Although no pool attached to the property there were pools in neighbouring hotels that we were able to use freely.
Balcony was fab for relaxing and catching sun in/eating meals on. Lovely view as well!
Thank you Mervyn hope to see you back soon

"A peaceful, cheerful and cosy place to stay"
When seeking a place to stay the Lookout is ideal for the wife and I. The was our 3rd holiday here and it's very well kept so returning made us relax more quickly.
We both enjoyed sitting out on the balcony in the sun and night time. The view is absolute bliss and at night when stars are out can bring a twinkle in the wife's eye.
The kitchen and bathroom is well adapted considering its a type of studio apartment. The beds give nice comfort and there's plenty of room for clothes.
Really close to the beach, town and lovely restaurants. If you like cakes then there's a great bakers near by.
In general I would recommend this to those that want a comfy place to call home whilst in puerto del Carmen.
Have just booked up another stay here.
Thank you Matt, always welcome.

"Apartment not as described"
This apartment is a studio not a 1 bedroom, there is no swimming pool, there is a small TV screen but no TV channels only DVD's. The cooking utensils are very dirty and the whole apartment needs … More
The apartment is advertised as a STUDIO - this "Lady" had a problem with everything even the frying pan was too small. She also left taking the key for the safe and the apartment and never got in contact with me even after I asked her to send me the keys back. If she were unhappy and I knew I would have refunded her but she never got in touch. The TV is not small it is as advertised 22"! The pool is at the Hotel opposite and we advise our guests to use it again in the advert! The apartment is not "dirty" it was only painted two years ago! "Dirty kitchen items, rubbish"! For future guests please take a look at our other reviews they reflect much better. The people that went in the week before this person were returning guests and they love the place. This Lady has got it all wrong and should have read the advert better plus we always want our guests to be happy - I will be pursuing this person for my keys back but no doubt she took these to cause more problems. Owners beware!

"What a way to start (and end) the day."
My wife and myself stayed The Lookout for 9 days recently and we enjoyed it very much.The apartment is spacious for 2 people and has all you would need for your holiday.The location is good it is in the centre of the resort and there are great walks to the old town one way (20 mins) and to the part of Puerto Del Carmen near the airport (50 mins).There are bars shops and eating places all within easy walking distance and the beach is less than 5 mins away.I would highly recommend the taxi pick- up by Paul who also has lots of info on Puerto Del Carmen if you need it.I will end this review by telling of the view from the balcony-it is brilliant.We would get up and have a cup of tea and sit out and look out to sea it was perfect.At night after a nice meal we would sit out and read enjoy a cool beer.We loved it.
Thank you I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay hope to see you again.

"An ideally situated, comfortable base for exploring Lanzarote"
This is a gem! Within sight of the sea, a few blocks back, it's quiet and feels secluded.
A nice neat studio apartment with a balcony, for two of us it was ideal. The owner even arranged a pick-up from the airport for us!
With none of the high-rise buildings that have spoilt other Canary Islands, Lanzarote is a unique experience. Go on a coach tour into the volcanic Timanfaya area, take a camel ride (maybe!) see Cesar Manriques architecture built into extinct volcanic bubbles and caves, or just stroll along the strip by the beach. Take a walk to the old town and get a boat trip along the coast. Buses are regular so a car isn't necessary.Shops and supermarkets are a few minutes away from the apartment.
Thanks very much for your kind comments
