The perfect solution to the stress of modern day life.
My wife and I are in the fortune position of being retired but still active. For me the winters in the UK were becoming more and more depressing and so we were searching for winter sun plus peace and tranquility in comfortable surroundings. We found all of this at David's property in Haria. The accommodation is exactly as described and even though we were there for four weeks we never felt that we were trapped in a small space. The garden is an absolute delight and it was quite easy to get lost just wandering around. We found that the kitchen facilities made self catering very easy as all the basics were available from the three or four small supermarkets in Haria. We enjoyed many simple home cooked meals. it was the perfect place to relax but if you wanted to be more active then there were numerous walks in the surrounding area and further afield for the more adventurous. On David's website I have described what we were able to achieve without the use of a car--it was amazingly simple and hassle free.
David was the ideal host and his enthusiasm and knowledge were very evident in everything he did. He was very willing to help in whatever way he could. I would certainly recommend staying at David's and we will certainly go there again hopefully in 2018
Stunning Gardens and Amazing Walks
Our host was friendly and eager to please, the apartment was clean and we'll supplied with a beautiful, private patio which was festooned in pink blossoms. The extensive gardens of the property were lovingly landscaped in mainly native plants, with many seating areas, both shaded and sun-drenched. There were a variety of local walks accessible from the back garden with some stunning views only a short distance away.
Enchanting garden, comfort and bliss
The form requires me to put an arrival date with the earliest possible choice being 05/10/2014 although, in fact, we first stayed with Dave and Birget in 2001 and have returned 3 times since - thus far. Lanzarote is volcanic, dry and can go as long as a year without rain, creating a landscape that is somewhat lunar with bands of colored minerals seemingly painted onto the mountains. Yet, their courtyard is cool and shaded by lush green flowering bushes and trees. Further back is an extensive garden adorned with sculpture, isolated patios and a hot tub plus a grotto and a pond populated with mini frogs and birds. Amazingly, Dave and Birget created this magical garden on once barren land. Virtually, if not all, the plants are native to Lanzarote. I was so taken with the garden that I created a photo album.
The apartment is spacious, clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and with its own private patio. The kitchen is fully equipped for easy (and cheap) dining. The bottom line is : I don't think you could do better.
Spacious Apartment in a Uniquely Beautiful Setting
We’ve just returned from a relaxing 10-day stay in Haria and feel fortunate to have discovered this gem!
The apartment is spacious, clean, comfortable and really well equipped. However, the highlight for us was the huge garden. Dave and Birgit have created a wonderfully relaxing space that is full of surprises. There are so many areas to explore and enjoy – you need a long stay just to make the most of it all. The photos really don’t do it justice. Lanzarote can often seem barren, but their garden is full of life – plants, trees, birds, frogs… wonderful for nature lovers like us.
The location is perfect for exploring the North of the island, which in our opinion is the most beautiful part. However, with a car, nothing is far away. You can walk to the Famara cliff-tops in 20 minutes. The view is breath-taking and it’s the perfect place to enjoy the sunset. Haria village itself is charming, with some very good restaurants and a great Saturday market. If you’re looking to relax somewhere away from the crowds, then we really can’t recommend it enough.
We will definitely be returning here again!
Wonderful appartment and garden!
We spent our holidays in Lanzarote and were really happy that we found this place.
The appartment is decorated with love for details and is quite comfortably and well- equipped!
Mr. Riebold was so nice to give us a private tour through the garden which is really amazing and could easily fit three families!
The garden had a sauna and jacuzzi to spend some relaxing time next to native plants and teneriffean frogs!
We definitely recommend this appartment and want to thank Mrs. Ellington and Mr. Riebold for their effort and time!
We hope to come back one day,
Christina and Alan
