“Spacious apartments (for 2-7) with sea views in Arrecife and Costa Teguise, ideal for easy beach escapes”
There’s an apartment overlooking Reducto beach in capital city Arrecife, plus two penthouse apartments in buzzy Costa Teguise, both a stone’s throw from Las Cucharas beach. Each has two/three bedrooms, a big lounge, a full kitchen and a private terrace – one also has a shared swimming pool - and there are heaps of restaurants, bars and shops nearby. Families couldn’t be better catered for.
Owners Tila and Michelle Braddock live on Lanzarote and own lots of properties in the area. They provide a welcome basket of essentials, can arrange for the shopping to be done or a farmers' grocery box to be delivered, and are full of knowledge about the island should you need some local tips (their head office is just down the road in Costa Teguise). Service is never intrusive though; this is much more a do-it-yourself retreat with added comforts when you want them: a winning combination in our books.

All three beach apartments feature traditional Canarian décor with modern comforts. Expect white walls, plenty of space, tiled or wooden floors and a private terrace – most with sea views.
The Arrecife Apartment (sleeps 6), located in Lanzarote's capital city, is right on the seafront, directly behind Playa Reducto. Inside, it has three spacious bedrooms (one double, two twins), two bathrooms, a full kitchen and an open-plan living/dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing wonderful sea views.
We particularly like the look of the Costa Teguise Ocean View Apartment (sleeps 7), which has a knockout roof terrace with loungers, seating, BBQ and breathtaking views over Costa Teguise and Las Cucharas bay. Modelled on New York loft-style living, it’s open-plan and spacious inside, with a living/dining room so large you could host a party in it (but don’t)! Our favourite feature is the aqua-blue distressed-wood boat that’s been fashioned into a writing desk – very quirky. There are two bedrooms (one double, one triple), plus plenty of space to sleep extra guests in the enormous living room.
The other Costa Teguise Apartment (sleeps 4 + 2 kids) is located some 200 metres further along Las Cucharas beach. Unlike the others, it’s part of a residential complex and has access to a big communal swimming pool – great for kids to splash about in. It’s got two bedrooms (one double, one twin), an open-plan dining area and lounge, and a south-facing terrace overlooking the pool.

All villas have fully equipped kitchens and both indoor and outdoor dining areas. A welcome basket with tea, coffee, UHT milk and bottled water (tap water is not drinkable on the island) will be waiting for you when you arrive. A shopping service is also available if you want to pre-order groceries – just ask Michelle – or there are supermarkets close to all three apartments for stocking up on supplies.
When it comes to eating out, you’re spoilt for choice. Arrecife and Costa Teguise have heaps of restaurants to choose from – consult your information pack for recommendations. If you’re in Arrecife and fancy a treat, head to Arrecife Gran Hotel & Spa for drinks or dinner at Altamar Restaurant on the 17th floor – the views are phenomenal.

- Travel west to explore the volcanic landscape of Timanfaya National Park (walking tours can be arranged), or sample local wines at one of the bodegas in La Geria, Lanzarote's main wine-growing region.
