Description from owner
A charming Canarian Casita in the peaceful, rural village of Maguez in northern Lanzarote. Ideal as a relaxing base from which to explore this fabulous island. Includes a large bedroom, private sun terrace, bathroom and kitchen/living area.
We are proud to announce that in November 2013 the Casita was awarded the status of "Casa Rural" - a recognition by The Canarian Government and Tourist Board of the character quality and traditional values of the accommodation.
If you love walking, cycling, painting, photography, writing or you are naturalists or naturists!!! - this location is for you! It is a restored Canarian Finca with loads of character . The cottage is attached to the main house but completely self contained. The ideal romantic couples retreat or if you are a single traveller - completely safe and tranquil.
The Casita offers accommodation within a traditionally built house in beautiful surroundings.
Life in the village of Maguez has hardly changed for many years and there is a typical Canarian shop approximately 200 metres from the Casita where you can try out your Spanish. A second mini market is also in the village selling a good range of all essentials. Just a stroll away is a choice of 3 local village bars which also serve a variety of great local food for truly amazing good value prices. While driving into and around the village it is not unusual to see the local farmers still working the land with a donkey or the local herdsman with his goats.
Haria - the neighbouring small town has a charming Saturday artisan market - with live music and local produce. A daily market here has the most delicious take away food choices too. In all the surrounding towns and villages there is a really fabulous choice of places to eat including fish and ,of course, tapas restaurants. The nearest beach is at Arrieta only 5km away a with super beach bar/restaurant.
Whilst this is the ultimate Lanzarote rural retreat ,we are fortunate to be well placed to visit some of the most famous attractions on the island and only 20 minutes drive from the nearest resort where you will be spoilt for choice of bars, restaurants and clubs.
To secure a booking a 50% deposit can be transfered to our UK bank and the balance can be paid the same way a month prior to the holiday or paid to us locally in euros on your visit.

“Our first trip to Lanzarote – we hope to return”
My wife and I spent a month in early 2013 staying in this charming property. We had a fantastic time in this comfortable and easily maintained casita. The property is situated in a quiet village, away from the trappings of mass tourism. The sound of a donkey braying in the morning may be your morning call. Although it is attached to the owners’ property, we enjoyed our privacy and independence. The owners were always available to offer tips about places to go and help with any practical matters. The property is set up so that we could spend many a happy hour outside, whether it was to enjoy an al fresco breakfast or just chilling under the warm afternoon sun on the upper terrace. The casita is accurately described and it met our needs perfectly. The living / dining room opens on to a south facing patio. The kitchen area provides every facility needed for a self-catering holiday, with full sized hob and oven, as well as a fridge large enough so that we did not need to shop every day. The large bedroom has plenty of storage space. The bathroom is equipped with a shower over the bath - there was always ample hot water at a very reasonable pressure. The wi-fi worked perfectly which meant we could keep up with family back in the UK. Our preferred holiday making involves plenty of sightseeing and walking. There are so many places to visit to spend an enjoyable time in Lanzarote. There are numerous sandy beaches within easy driving distances and we were spoilt for choice with the wonderful restaurants we encountered! We have never eaten so many quality fish meals at such keen prices. I would recommend hiring a car if you intend to explore this surprising island. We rented our five door hatchback from Payless – it was less than 12 euros a day. They operate a fair fuel policy and there are no excesses. They also have a reception desk in the airport, unlike some of their competitors. I would like to thank the owners for helping to make our Lanzarote experience such a memorable one. I always had prompt replies to my emails in the lead up to our holiday. We received the warmest of welcomes on our arrival and this set the tone for our trip. The acts of kindness shown during our stay were much appreciated, making our holiday all the more memorable. The fact that Peter is a fellow Southampton football fan of long standing was just the icing on the cake!! I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to future holiday makers. You will be assured of a carefree holiday in Lanzarote.
Owner's reply: Amazing review and thank you for taking the time and trouble to write it - so glad you enjoyed your first experience of Lanzarote and all it has to offer. People don't always realise there is a truly wonderful rural option to stay in here.
“Highly recommended - perfect Lanzarote, wonderful location, booked to return a fifth time to the same cottage.”
Casa de Cabra is located in a small village (inhabited by local people) in the north of Lanzarote, about five miles off the main road from Arricife to Orzola. It is a couple of minutes from Haria. The cottage itself is perfect, with all the facilities needed and the huge plus point of a totally private large roof terrace off the bedroom (which is spacious and comfy). The owners, Linda and Pete, who live next door are charming, welcoming and have a talent for giving complete privacy; but are also very friendly and great company over a barbecue or a few drinks. One of the absolute joys of the cottage is that you are away from all the pre-conceived notions of touristy Lanzarote. The view from the roof terrace is of cacti, palm trees, hills and the sea in the distance. You do need a car; but everything is so accessible, from the golden beach (and great beach bar / restaurant) in Arrieta (about 7 mins away) to the Cesar Manrique attractions (eg the Rio del Mirador - brilliant, the caves and the cactus garden). The fishing port at Orzola (20 ish mins away) has great restaurants and provides hours of entertainment watching the fishing boats and ferries in the harbour. Another good day out is taking the ferry from Orzola across to La Graciosa. In Maguez itself there is a local bar (very cheap as it is a Sociadad) and two smallish shops selling food, beer, wine and basics. Haria, a few minutes by car and easy walking distance, has a great locals Saturday Market and some nice restaurants (La Frontera has good food and great views). For a couple who want to get away from the hustle and bustle, feel part of local Lanzarote, and relax in wonderful surroundings - with places to go when you want a bit more action this is the perfect spot. Highly recommended.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review - we hope to welcome you back here again.
“Our mountain retreat”
Casa De Cabra Review. We have visited Casa De Cabra three times over a three year period usually towards the end of October. The property is very spacious for two people. It has a quaint old charm. The layout is a unusual one due to it being part of a old Finica. Downstairs is a spacious open plan living area with KITCHEN, good gas cooker, plenty of work surfaces fridge with only a small freezing compartment, a bigger freezer would be handy.. Plenty of pots & pans & crockery, toaster, but no microwave. LIVING AREA, two seater dining table, comfy large settee TV etc. A couple of table lamps give a pleasant ambience to the room at night. The living area opens up through the patio doors to the covered PATIO. This has a large solid table with 2 chairs, portable BBQ & overlooks the garden. UPPER FLOOR The large bedroom is accessed via a flight of stairs on the outside of the building. Another door in the bedroom, (which actually has a comfortable bed), leads to the totally private rooftop terrace, toilet & bathroom. There is a wooden canopy covering you as you walk to the WC so you don’t get wet if it’s raining in the night! The upper terrace overlooks the lush garden, village & valley beyond towards the cave houses on the next mountain. Take your binoculars. To the left you can see the sea in the distance and to the right the extinct volcanoes. It is the ideal place to sunbathe & has two sun beds with comfortable covers & a couple of wicker chairs & table, which are very handy. In Oct sun is on the terrace from about 10.30am to turned 6pm. WHAT TO DO? Well we spend most of the day sunbathing upstairs really only venturing down for food & drink unless we are going out. When the sun goes down we eat outside downstairs watching the little Gecko that always takes up position above the outside light. With wifi access downstairs taking your laptop Ipad or android phone is a good idea as there is only basic news channels available on the TV and no DVD or radio but there are quite a few paperback books & a good and informative read is to be had in the info book. If night life is your thing there is nothing apart from the local Sociadad (which is a experience!) but Costa Teguise is only 20 min by car. OUT & ABOUT. If you are a keen walker you have come to the right place but most people will really need a car. You are high up in the mountains & the 7 min drive down the big hill to Arrieta makes your ears pop so walking down is not a option. However we have walked to the fantastic viewpoint overlooking Faramra and the Isle of La Graciosa exploring the volcano caledra on the way. About 4 miles round trip through total silence. Or go 2 miles in the car or by bike to the viewpoint past Guinate tropical park for a sunning view of the sun setting in the sea from aeroplane heights. Bikes are available which really make getting around & exploring a lot easier than walking. There is a bus service but I can not comment as always have a car. The Naturist village of Charco Del Palo is less than 20 minuets drive away and perfectly compliments Casa De Cabera if you like getting a all over tan. There is a small local shop, a larger one at Arrieta & one in Harria the next village but you are best taking the 25 miniute drive to the Eurospar at Costa Teguise for your ‘big shop’ as it is cheaper & has more choice. The owners Linda & Peter are very nice couple, friendly & helpful. Casa De Cabera is far removed from your typical holiday apartment both in location & style. People who enjoy nightlife & lots going on would probably feel isolated & totally bored but if you like to chill out in peace & quiet in a unique setting it’s ideal. I hope my review helps you decide if it’s for you or not. We love it there! AJ & L Reid. Manchester UK
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review - we look forward to welcoming you back again.
“a very nice place to stay, with a beautiful garden in a small countryside village.”
The house, kitchen, upstairs bedroom, bathroom, garden and verandah all looked good, were well maintained and was big enough for two adults. We specially loved the quietness of the place, the garden, the village and loved the fact that the owners had two mountain bikes so that we could make trips through the countryside and to the sea.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write a review - glad you like it. Kind regards Linda and Peter
“Lovely way to experience Lanzarote in pleasant "cottage"”
The cottage is attached to the house that the friendly owners live in. It has its own entrance through a lovely garden with a volcanic landscape and flowering cacti and palms. There is off-road car-parking. The village is very quiet (maybe except for some barking dogs) and very typically Spanish - nothing like the costas! A local store provides essentials for self-catering but really the bigger supermarket in Arecife is necessary for a big shop. Getting around was easy. The owners had local car-hire contacts at 13 Euros a day for a Fiat Panda. You need a hire car though, as the village is off the beaten track. We were met at the airport and returned the car there without fuss - great! Driving is easy and you can visit all the attractions without having to use rip-off tour companies. Trip highlights were a walk inside a volcano (cost zilch), the beautiful deserted beaches on the north-east of the island, and a boat trip to the road-free island of La Graciosa, as well as experiencing good pure-Spanish eateries in nearby Arrieta. The cottage itself is fine for two people, with a lovely bedroom upstairs attached to a sunny balcony and off that a bathroom. Downstairs is a lounge/kitchen with a patio area. The facilities are adequately good, but not new or flashy - a good basic standard with all the things you would need. There is a computer with free internet access, which was useful for the odd email and listening to Radio4! It will be great when you can get the iPlayer from Spain! There was a TV and DVD player, but we did not use them. Eat on the patio area overlooking the garden - though beware of the lizards that forage around for scraps as they can be a bit stupid - one nibbled my big toe! The English owners are very pleasant and helpful people indeed, and though they leave you to enjoy your holiday, they are on hand should you need help and advice. We enjoyed them having a drink with us one evening. The cottage is secluded enough for going "au naturelle", and the balcony is a sun-trap for those who want to get an all-over tan. Accomodation is not suitable for people with mobility difficulties or young children due to steep external stairs to bedroom. Overall a wonderful and inexpensive experience of the "real" Lanzarote. We will definitely be back again - it was marvellous.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time and trouble to write a review - appeciated - glad you like it. Kind regards Linda and Peter
“House for 2 In a traditional village”
We had a very relaxing stay at the Casa de Cabra in Jan 2011. The village location was perfect as we were able to walk to a local bar for tapas and shops if we needed supplies. The owners, who lived next door, were very helpful and friendly when we needed them to be . We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful, rural retreat in Lanzarote.
