The owners have created a great outdoor dining area using an old tree trunk as a table base. And they are real garden lovers - continually improving the courtyard and adding new plants on a regular basis.
The garden provides great colour and interest all year round and hosts a wonderful range of plants including a giant Drago palm - typical of the Canary Islands - Mascarena palms, Traveller palms, African aloes, bananas, strelitzas, hibiscus, passion flower and much more besides.
Finca Botanico is located in Guatiza, one of the greenest villages in Lanzarote - in the heart of an active farming community and in close proximity to the world famous Cactus Garden created by Cesar Manrique, which is just a short stroll away from the property.
An excellent Italian restaurant, Tasca de Lita, is located less than three minutes walk away. Guatiza is also home to three other bars serving snacks and tapas as well as a late night music bar with live acts.
There are lots of other restaurants located within a ten to fifteen minute radius.
The Finca is surrounded by countryside so there are loads of scenic walks right on the doorstep. Organised treks with local guides can also be arranged on request.
One of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches on the island - Arrieta - is located just a five minute drive away from the Finca.
Colonial buildings and quiet cobbled streets are just a ten minute drive away. Teguise is also home to Lanzarote's largest weekly market every Sunday morning.
The famous artist and architect created all of Lanzarote's leading tourist attractions, such as the Jameos del Agua and the Cactus Garden. And all of them are within a fifteen minute drive of the Finca, making this an ideal base for sightseeing.
Amazing stay in this fabulous place, everything was perfect, I recommend it!

Everything was lovingly designed and everything needed was available in the household. The garden is well maintained and invites you to linger.
Emmanuelle R, July 2023
Exceptional. It is in a nice hamlet in the north, the flowery garden is really relaxing, the host is very supportive and the location quiet, and not at all in the tourist areas. All amenities are catered for. The shower hot. internet is excellent.

We've just returned from a delightful stay in the Garden Apartment. Gaby is a thoughtful host and has thought of everything for a comfortable stay. The place is a good size, well-equipped and, of course, has a lovely garden area. We liked the rural location and it's only a few km from the sea-side. Five Stars all round!

Gautiza is a nice village only about 20 mins from the airport, decent supermarket with deli and fresh bread each morning, and only 10 mins walk to the cactus garden. I didn't have a car as I just wanted to relax, and I most definitely did!
The garden apartment was perfect, a great size and lovely secluded garden with many tropical plants. Great for sitting outside day or night, very relaxing. Inside is furnished in a quality way and it seems everything you might need has been thought of. Kitchen has everything, lounge very comfortable and has tv with many channels, good bathroom and the bedroom has loads of cupboard space and a good bed with comfortable mattress. Gaby was an excellent host, responded to all my questions quickly and went the extra to help me out. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want something quiet, secluded and away from the many hotels on the coast.

A stunning place to stay for our honeymoon! The local restaurants were closed on our arrival. However, Gaby purchased food for us to get us through the evening, checking any dietary issues too. The facilities in the Garden Apartment are excellent. The garden itself is gorgeous. We tried some of the recommended restaurants. In all instances, the food was excellent, plentiful and great value for money. The last comment applies to Finca Botanico just as much. I would highly recommend hiring a car. Gaby recommended CICAR and they were excellent value for money and great service too. Thank you Gaby, thank you Nick. A holiday we will never forget.
Richard T, September 2022
I recommend this little oasis of greenery, quiet and close to everything.
Florence G, August 2022
The house is very pretty and the garden is very pleasant. The location of the apartment is perfect. When I arrived there was, as a welcome, water, fruit, bread, eggs and a bottle of local wine. Gaby is very friendly, helpful and always reachable. At the slightest problem, she responds immediately. Thank you for everything.

We had a wonderful stay at the finca. Very clean and equipped with pretty much everything you need for a week or 2. The garden is a dream and perfect to relax in for lazy days. Very private and quiet location, ideal if you have a car to get around. Most of Lanzarote is within a 15-30 minutes drive and there’s a small supermarket in walking distance. Gaby was a pleasure to communicate with, very welcoming and quick to respond.
Erwin H, May 2022
Great Airbnb! Very well equipped. Easy check-in and very good communication with Gaby. I recommend !
Emmanuel G, May 2022
Äusserst geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung in ruhigem Quartier.Der private, gepflegte Garten mit div.Sitzplätzen ist äusserst idyllisch. Der Service der Gastgeberin ist sehr zuvorkommend. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
Gabriela, April 2022
I recommend. Clean and very welcoming accommodation, very well located where calm and pleasure are the key words. Nick and Gaby are very responsive, easy to communicate with. In short everything was perfect we will definitely come back.

Great location in a small village with easy access to everywhere. The landlady Gaby is very helpful and gave us insider tips. The apartment with garden is a dream! We can warmly recommend the stay!!

We stayed for a week earlier this month and couldn't have been happier with the Finca Botanico. The front door looks very anonymous, but once inside you encounter first the glorious tropical garden with seating in the sun and shade, and then the little house itself. Very simply, there is first a living and dining area with a well equipped kitchen to the left, with a nice shower room behind and a bedroom beyond. The bed is five feet and there is plenty of storage space, although there is annoyingly no chair or stool on which to put day clothes removed at night. Gaby is charming, very helpful and responsive. Gautiza is wonderfully situated in the center of the island, so all points of interest (and there are many) are not far away. We thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and all the sites of Cesar Manrique and would recommend this accommodation and the island as a wonderful getaway from the sun with more than a touch of culture.
Olivia M, March 2019
We are extremely happy here in this glorious finca with its beautiful garden. We came for the sun, peace and relaxation and this place ticks all the boxes and more. Gaby is lovely and we plan to return next year. Beautiful scenery and great walks, and good road and bus links.
Kate and Jay, March 2019
Gaby and Nick were excellent hosts, very helpful with good local insight. The apartment and the garden were just like the photos, really beautiful.
Kate, March 2018
Set in a beautiful garden in a lovely quiet location but also very convenient for exploring the rest of the island. It was only a 5 minute drive to a great beach at Arrieta. The apartment was spacious, well equipped and comfortable (great shower and big comfortable bed) and the owner was friendly and helpful. We liked everything about it.
Adam P, March 2018
The apartment and the garden are as beautiful as the photos show. The apartment is modern, clean and well equipped. The bed is comfortable and everything works well, including wifi. Finca Botanico is ideally located for exploring the island by bike or car, especially if you want to spend more time in the northern half. You can walk to the Manrique Cactus Garden or drive to Arrieta beach in 5 minutes, and there is a good Italian restaurant within a 2-minute walk. The only improvement we can suggest would be a microwave. We would recommend it without hesitation.
William B, December 2017
Delighted with Finca Botanico, very comfortable, very quiet, had everything we needed and was very well located for everything we wanted to do. It was the perfect base for our vacation and a pleasure to return to each day. Our host was very helpful, she even went out to buy a plug adapter so we could use our phone chargers in English! Happy to recommend this beautiful apartment.
Paquita, September 2017
We spent our honeymoon in Guatiza at Nick and Gaby's casita, and we loved the place! The garden is incredible, the apartment is very well decorated and its owners are very attentive. We were surprised by the privacy that we were able to enjoy there, the calm and beautiful surroundings and the small details that made the place a little paradise. This was a wonderful stay!
Simon, July 2017
Nick and Gaby have a nice little apartment for two people with a beautiful tropical garden for you to enjoy. Its location is at the end of the town, which means peace and tranquility. It was clean, well equipped and we particularly liked the wood burning stove as the nights can get a bit chilly in the winter.
