Started our months holiday in Lanzarote with a week on La Graciosa. Wonderful house, immaculately clean and comfortable with lovely views from the huge terrace. Adrian picked us up at the airport. A great service which made the traveling from the airport seem easy even crossing the sea by Zodiac! On return Adrian even dropped us at our next accommodation and helped us carry the cases. Adrian was very helpful and informative and available as and when we needed him. After a wonderful week on La Graciosa it took us at least a week to settle on the next part of our holiday, we just wanted to go back to the lovely laid back island with hardly any tourism. Can't wait to revisit. Thanks Adrian you are a wonderful host.

Visited La Graciosa from the 7th until the 14th Nov 2010. Adran met us the airport. The pick up was well planned. We stayed in the studio. The studio is cosy, but it had everything that we needed for basic living. The studio and house are well located and are close to all of the amenities. The island itself is stunning. It is what we would describe as, "Real." There are a couple of ways of getting around the island. The best beaches are located between half-hour to 45-mins away. Mountain bikes are for hire at a reasonable cost and also the Land Rover service. The scenery is absolutely amazing. There were a few small places to eat, all serving traditional food.The locals are lovely and always managed a, "Hola!" If you like locals who speak fluent English, British pubs, man-made resorts and lots to do, then this is not the place for you. If you like real places with real people and want to relax, then this is the place for you! Cant wait to return!

Just back from a fantastic break....delivered to the door, ferry arranged, all information we required provided, and the house/location was everything we expected. Not your usual package, but all the better for it! If you fancy a real taste of the Canaries look no further, and thanks Adrian for getting the balance right...there when needed!

Enjoyed our stay, 11 days. House nice and comfortable with great roof terrace for star gazing. Pretty harbour with a few good restaurants and a great bakery, especially the cakes. Supermarkets good. Only one complaint that we were unlucky with weather, but no control over that anywhere in world. Adrian was very organised and helpful and it was a good idea to book the airport transfers with him. One tip - learn a few basic Spanish words as little English understood. Thanks Adrian, hope your new house roof OK!!! may be we will be able to return again in a couple of years time.

En nuestra primera visita a la isla, nos hemos quedado enganchados, tanto que ya hemos reservado para el verano. Adrian ha hecho que pasemos unos días magníficos. Su casa tiene un encanto especial, además de todas las comodidades. La terraza en el piso de arriba permite unas tardes/noches agradables para disfrutar con la familia tras un día de playa. ¿El Caribe? está a dos pasos de su casa. Muchas gracias por todo Adrian.

Part 3 from Dee and Julia

Over the fortnight we saw most of the Island, which though small has many delightful surprises. There are numerous golden sand dunes, overlooked by impressive hills tempting the adventurous to scale and reward with astounding views of Lanzarote and the other smaller islands. The coastline is varied and delights the visitor with enchanting coves, long sandy beaches with very busy waves hurling their might at foreboding cliffs.

It goes without saying that our last day on this gem was greeted with sadness. All our senses had been served with generous helpings and we hope these servings will last to our next visit. Yes, small as the island is there are some areas we did not discover and no doubt we will return.

Adrian was waiting for us at Orzola and drove us to the airport, enviously pointing out the many surfers along the west coast of Lanzarote.

Thanks Adrian, Ann and La Graciosa for a wonderful holiday.

Part 2 from Dee and Julia

As for our hosts Adrian and Anne, what can I say? If only all landlords were as helpful, friendly accommodating and so laid back. Adrian who makes the Tower of Pisa look vertical greeted us at the airport as arranged and drove us to the white knuckle ride that was The Zodiac water taxi. The crossing was at night so all we could see was the myriad stars above us with the occasional glimpse of the treacherous rocks just outside the port Orzola. On our arrival at Caleta del Sebo we were met by Ann and her wheelbarrow. We had rucksack, but were glad of the transportation to our home for the next fortnight along the sandy tracks. My advice is do not bring wheeled suitcases.

Part 1 from Dee and Julia

We have recently returned to the gloomy October UK after a brilliant holiday in the Fisk Studio on the tiny, enchanting Canary Isle La Graciosa. The studio was clean and perfectly adequate for our needs. Most of our meals were taken in Meson de la Tierra looking out over the marina towards the stunning backdrop of the North Lanzorote cliffs that were forever changing colour and texture during the hot sunny days and warm evenings. Here the menu was an experience as we have very little Spanish (to be rectified) and the staff have hardly any English. However, Maria tries her best at speaking English is wonderfully patient and ChuChi has a smile to make any meal a delight. The young lad Wander who waited on us was very friendly with a grin wider than the harbour entrance. We met many wonderful people on the Island - both natives and holidaymakers of many nationalities, and consequently have a lot of fond memories.
More to follow if allowed.

We have just spent two wonderful weeks on Graciosa in Adrian and Anns fabulous house. Probably the best holiday we have had.

Adrian and Ann very friendly, knowledgable and welcoming.

House perfect - simple, full of charm and character.

Roof terrace perfect - private with great views

Town and restaraunts / bars good - fresh fish, cold beer

Locals have very little English and we have even less Spanish but it all seemed to work out!

Beaches brilliant - with a range of calm swells or busy surf.

Views astonishing - and the range of light, colour and mood in sea, sky and cliffs quite captivating.

I have a feeling we will be back next time our batteries need recharging.

Just back from the wonderful island of La Graciosa.The studio flat which was cosy, perfect for our relaxing getaway. Caleta del Sebo is lovely town with well stocked supermarkets & bakery. The restaurants are very good & reasonably priced & the fresh fish was delicious, the internet cafe set back from the harbour does lovely hamburgers if you want a change from fish. Thanks Adrian for everything & giving us advice & tips about the local services. The beaches are so beautiful with amazing turquoise water, fantastic for snorkelling & swimming. We enjoyed the coastal walk towards Pedro Barba and found a wonderful little cove. The water taxi service to Playa de la Cocina was brill. Playa de las Conchas was also breathtakingly beautiful, so unspoiled but the waves are very big which makes it unsafe for swimming.
Would recommend Adrian's holiday house or studio flat in La Graciosa to anyone wanting to unwind! Hopefully we will return one day.
