We waited only because we wondered if we really wanted to encourage people to go to this wonderful, unspoilt haven. Adrain the accommodation was first class - from the time you picked us up at the airport with your chilled manner we knew we were in for a good time. The house is decorated beautifully and it really did feel like home. The villagers are friendly and welcoming, food fantastic and recommend Ziggy are you tour guide during your stay. We will be back - thank you x

What a lovely week on such a beautiful and unspoilt Island. As we came to stay with our friends Julian and Sarah we really had no idea what to expect, but were not disappointed. Beautiful rugged scenery, wonderful beaches and great food. Thank you Adrian for looking after us so well, from picking us up at the airport and making sure that out return transfers went smoothly. We will definitely be back.
Excellent accommodation and I like the maritime theme running through the house.

We spent our honeymoon in the house in November 2012 and had a lovely time. Adrian was a great host and picked us up from the airport and sorted out our transfer to the island as well as the return trip to the airport. The house is great; it has a brilliant terrace and is really well-equipped, clean and homely. I would recommend this as a holiday destination and would love to go back. The island is really interesting and there are some great, reasonably priced restaurants in the town.

Thank you Adrian for your great welcome and no fuss easy trip to and from the Island. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay in the house, especially enjoying our breakfasts and relaxing evening drinks on the roof terrace.
Having discovered the Island last year on a day trip from Lanzarote we loved finding there is so much more to see when you can stay longer and don't have to rush back to the ferry at the end of the day. We enjoyed all the beaches, not sure which is our favourite. The South beaches were great for swimming but how can you beat the spectacular scenery and dramatic waves crashing against the shore in the North.
Great value restaurants and locals were all very welcoming, just embarrassed our Spanish is rubbish.
We felt sad but smug when we got back to the airport. We had definitely had the best holiday!

We have recently returned from La Graciosa, where we stayed for the last 2 weeks of September. And what an unforgettable 2 weeks they were! The island has a unique atmosphere created probably by the mixture of wonderful, out-of-this-Earth views, gorgeous weather and laid back attitude. It took us a while to get used to this totally relaxed and unscheduled style of life, but when we did, we did not want to leave!
Adrian is a really great man – the pick up from and to the airport was flawless. When we arrived and got to the studio, a bottle of water and wine were waiting for us in the fridge. There was also a map with some useful landmarks and phone numbers. The studio is small, but has all the basic things you need if you want to self-cater. Also, with such lovely weather and various beaches to explore, you don’t spend much time indoors!
Our holiday in La Graciosa was exactly what we wanted – peace and quiet to forget about the noise and crowds of London, where we normally live.

Best Holiday in a long time...

We missed the last ferry when we arrived, but Adrian had lots of alternatives..the water taxi was the option we went for. It was fantastic, and I would recomend it for anyone who loves star gazing!
The house was great, perfect location and very comfortable. The terrace had great views, and we spent a lot of time using the barbecue cooking fresh local fish.
This was the best holiday we have had for peace and quiet, incredible snorkelling and great hiking.

Adrian did everything possible to make our stay easy going and hassle free, and it made a real difference. From his recommendations of where to walk, to which restaurants to try, he was extremely helpful and enthusiastic, without being overbearing.

We will definitely come back, and for longer next time.
Thank you Adrian and Ann for introducing us to this fabulous place.

Dear Adrian,

Thank you for making our holiday in your house on La Graciosa the best holiday we have had for many years.

We could only get away certain dates to fly out and return and the only flight out got us into Arrecife after dark and we would have got to Orzola long after the last ferry sailing.
A couple of years ago we had a very bad experience arriving in Arrecife long after dark

With this memory haunting us we would have stayed at home if you had not assured us of your personal help to make our holiday happen.

The drive to Orzola was a pleasure, you introduced us to Dani who was waiting with his water taxi. The trip across the Rio was fabulous. Once away from the lights of the port gently motoring across the water in the shadow of the cliffs the Milky Way came into view. To a city dweller it was the most amazing explosion of stars in the darkest night you can imagine reflected in a calm black sea.continued.

Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche im Casa del Rio. Das Haus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und hat alles, was man braucht. Sensationell ist die windgeschützte, sonnige Terasse, die einen herrlichen Frühstücksplatz bietet.
Der Service und die Tipps von Adrian waren klasse.
Wer eine Woche voller Ruhe und Entspannung sucht, ist auf La Graciosa und im Casa del Rio hervorragend aufgehoben.

Thank you so much for a perfect holiday! Your warm welcome at the airport and infectious enthusiasm for the place made us feel very at home.The island itself was enchanting and we loved spending the days snorkelling, cycling, attempting to fish and lying lazily in the sun.
Due to your ludicrous generosity we were priviledged to sample both the house and the studio. The studio is a compact space and had everything we needed in it. With its neutral colours and artistic touches it is an ideal retreat after a day spent outdoors.The house is luxuriously spacious and cleverly designed with some really fun features. We loved the boat coming out of the wall and the shell mosaics that decorated the floor. The upstairs is particularly stunning and the terrace is a perfect place to gaze at the sea and watch the gulls circle against the reflection of the setting sun on the cliffs of Lanzarote.We will certainly be recommending Graciosa Getaways to all of our friends!
