“Another wonderful holiday at Casa Kernow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

We have just returned from another wonderful relaxing holiday at Caser Kernow. John & Ailsa are such great hosts nothing is to much trouble, thanks again to John for the lifts to Peurto Del Carmen. The pool and garden area are kept immaculate and the apartments are clean and spacious. I would have no hesitation in recommending Caser Kernow to any of my friends or family it really is the perfect holiday getaway.

Room Tip: All the apartments are lovely

What a lovely place & so spotlessly clean!! The apartment was great, we have stayed in many on Lanzarote over the years & this is now our firm favourite - we will return.
The pool is a very good size & again spotlessly clean, John & Ailsa take great pride in the pool & gardens & it shows!! Our nephew & niece pretty much lived in the pool while we were there & as the water was lovely & warm as was the weather, they rarely needed to get out except to eat!
The owners are a lovely couple who keep the place looking wonderful, we even saw Ailsa in the pool with her scuba tank on & a brush in her hand - that's dedication!! As divers ourselves we picked well, with Ailsa recommending the best dive sites on the island & which dive centres offered what we were looking for.
We arrived as customers & left feeling we had made new friends, thank you to you both for your advice of places to visit or eat & for generally making us feel so very welcome!! roll on the next visit!!

We are just about to book our 8th trip to Casa Kernow and cant wait to experience the hospitality, comfort and great times we always enjoy with such great hosts!
Lanzarote is a great place to take a holiday and Casa Kernow allows you a relaxed location but also an opportunity to take in the hussle and bustleif you want to.
John and Ailsa are always happy to help out with any questions and deal with any problems...not that we have had ever had any!

Where do we start... NIGHTMARE OWNERS!!!!
From the first day of our holiday the owners were abusive swearing at us and our children which is absolutely disgusting.
They don't tell you they live ABOVE the apartments which results in constant complaints about noise.
The apartments themselves were clean but very basic and dated.
There was a bad problem with ants. We found them crawling from sockets in the kitchen, In the wardrobes and drawers.
They put a time restriction on the pool, 9.00am - 7.00pm. We were not able to use sun cream whilst using the pool.
The apartments are directly under the flight path, with the airport only minutes away. None of this was stated when booking.
We booked all of the apartments, we had 8 teenagers who come from very good homes and are NOT disrespectful. The owners constantly told the children off for rolling the ball, then when we went out miraculously the ball was punctured.
Some of the adults went out one night leaving an adult in charge. The owners spent the whole evening watching our children through their upstairs window, shouting down and ordering our children to bed! They thought the children were home alone.
They then locked all of the gates so we were unable to use the grounds.
They told us we could make as much noise as we wanted away from the building so we were up chatting until 3am where they told us we could make noise.Out of courtesy we kept the noise to a minimum (there were five of us). The following morning the owners did nothing but moan and stated that they were like zombies!!!
We were accused of stealing some diving weights, why we would want these god only knows.
We were told that the LIKES OF US would never stay there again, even though the apartments were left exactly how we found them, not a single item was broken nor were we rude or aggressive towards them.
John likes to look through windows in the mornings and saw my wife with no clothes on!!!!
The thing i worry about is that we had a 10 year old girl who was swimming, sun bathing etc and all John could do was stare from his window upstairs at the children. I THINK THIS IS WRONG BUT HE DOESN'T!
We went to Lanzarote with our friends who have been going to the island for the past 10 years. They said it was the worst place they have ever stayed.
So if you have group bookings, teenagers or young children PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
Your holiday will be wrecked. The owners are used to holiday makers who are in bed for 7.00pm.

Well what can I say. I have been coming to casa kernow since 2005 and every time John and Ailsa are the perfect hosts. We were met at the airport by John and what a warm welcome we had as always. I bought my mum with me this time and she loved it. She said what a truely lovely couple you guys are and she felt very relaxed and welcome. The appartments were spotless as always and Alisa had even got in some shopping for us as we arrived late in the evening.

My mum was so impressed she said she would have not hesitation in returning either with a friend or was more than happy to return by herself as she felt so comfortable in the appartments not bad for a woman who was widow 2 years ago and herself is 68.

So thank you thank you thank you for yet another truely remorable holiday on the beautiful paradise island of Lanzarote.

We hope to be back very soon as steve needs to wet his gullis

I couldn't recommend Casa Kernow highly enough. If you are looking of a little relaxation out side of the madness of the big resorts then this is most definitely the place for.

The Owners are the perfect hosts and very obliging to help you get your holiday started. My wife and I had a wonderful time, venturing out without the requirement for a car, making the most of the glorious sunshine. Perfect pool & BBQ area, fresh fish & meat from the market, just what we wanted. Thank you Ailsa & John.

My wife, two daughters and myself stayed at Casa Kernow for a week recently and had a fantastic time.

It is a big Canarian house with four self-contained apartments in the heart of Playa Honda only minutes away from Puerto del Carmen.

We booked one of the two bedroom apartments which was very nice, very clean and tidy and was equipped with everything one could need for a perfect self-catering holiday.

The outside of the apartment and the grounds around the whole villa are spotless and the gardens are beautiful, with Palm trees, cactus, and loads of other exotic plants, flowers and fruits - great for just chilling out in - reading a book or having a snooze.
The pool was lovely and big and very clean and our kids had a fantastic time in there!

The owners made us feel very welcome and made sure our stay was very enjoyable, they knew all the best places to go, sights to see - how to get there, best places for shopping, food etc and even offered to pick us up from the airport, although we didn't take them up on the offer as we were hiring a car which they sorted out for us at the lowest price I have found since holidaying in Lanzarote.

The only problem was that we were only there for one week, we could have easily stayed there a lot longer.

We will definitely be returning to Casa Kernow and are thinking of coming again in 2012 only this time we are thinking of booking all four apartments in the villa and bringing more family and in-laws.

The villa is walking distance from the main shopping areas and beaches of Playa Honda.

A car is recommended should one wish to travel into the busier town of Puerto del Carmen or visit the many attractions that are available across the island.

Room Tip: All rooms are good - all south facing!
