About Tricia

Villa Estrellada was purchased back in November 2011 and is now owned by Barry & Eibhlin Thorpe-Smith. Since taking over the villa Barry & Eibhlin have made many updated improvements to the property adding new outside furniture plus updating some fixture & fittings inside the villa. The projects are ongoing although this will have NO impact on the guests.

Tricia purchased this villa in 2011

Why Tricia chose Tías

We have been lucky enough to travel to many places in the world but have always had a soft spot for the Canary Islands and Lanzarote in particular. It is a beautiful spot and we were enchanted when we saw Villa Estrellada in Macher. The views are just amazing.

What makes this villa unique

We enjoy the stunning views, the privacy, alfresco dining and the swimming pool. The Jacuzzi adds that little touch of luxury.

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

This our second visit to Villa Estrellada and we love it !

It's secluded, very spacious and leaves you wanting nothing. The facilities are great and it goes without saying that the pool and Jacuzzi are the icing on the cake.

With the local Teleclub and restaurant Asadero de Macher on the doorstop there is something for everyone. Lovely area, great walks to the Port and the local bus system is easy to use and very reliable.

We've already booked for later this year... What does that say ?

What a fantastic holiday !

  • 5 of 5

We hadn't been to Lanzarote before so wanted somewhere reasonably central but outside any of the really busy tourist areas - Villa Estrellada turned out to be the perfect choice. The pool was lovely, the hot tub was excellent and the pool table was a huge hit with the kids. The villa is clean and airy and quickly became our 'home from home'. The bedding and towel change halfway through was a really nice touch and Tricia (the host) was absolutely superb - she really couldn't have been more helpful. Cannot fault the villa in any way - great value for money.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Estrellada is a lovely villa with all of the amenities required for a stress free holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean and all equipment was of a very good standard.

Tricia and Brian have achieved the perfect balance - they are there to support when required but leave you to enjoy your holiday unless you ask for assistance. On the couple of occasions we asked for assistance they responded instantly.

We would recommend this villa and we hope to return one day.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Estrellada is comfortable, very well equipt and well maintained. Description of the villa is accurate and the property managers Tricia and Brian couldn't have been more helpful. We are frequent visitors to Lanzarote and very discerning regarding quality and condition of where we stay. Our party consisted of Grandparents, Daughter and Son in Law plus 2 grandsons we spent 4 enjoyable weeks at villa Estrellada and have rebooked for 3 weeks next August 2016 need I say more.

Poor management

  • 2 of 5

First the good points - the villa itself is beautiful, its an old villa that has been fitted and furnished lovely. Hot tub was old and you are not able to use all the functions otherwise its shuts off and is not able to be used and you get charged for it to be reset. Wifi was very good.

Unfortunately our stay was ruined by the fact that the water board were digging up the road right outside of the villa so there was no privacy, lots of muck and dust and we we not able to enjoy outside dining, the Pool etc for the majority of our stay and spent most of the holiday going out sightseeing which was not what we had intended after paying for a villa with all its own facilities... Unfortunately the villa management did not assist with additional cleaning when the workmen stopped for the weekend, they did not offer to help us find alternative accommodation and even though they did notify us of the works a couple of days before we arrived they did not accurately describe how bad it was - although they apologised for the works their response was stock standard 'there is nothing we can do, its out of our control' and if we wanted to stay elsewhere 'that was our prerogative' - not very helpful. I personally believe if you book a villa and pay villa prices you expect a certain level of service and unfortunately the service we received fell very short and the responses we have received following a written complaint have been terrible and basically saying that I was lying about what we had experienced even though I had discussed this with the managers twice whilst on holiday. I was however, offered a discount on a future booking but no refund on our stay that I had paid for, clearly I wouldn't return to this villa again.

Owner's Response: Response from Villa owners/Property Managers The villa owners/property managers were pleased that the villa itself met expectations. The Jacuzzi is set up by the property managers prior to arrival & ALL functions are available to the guests. The owner, by the way, meets the cost of any call out, not the guest unless of course any equipment is damaged, reset or tampered with. The water company, Canal Gestion, gave no notice of the installation of new water supply and just got stuck into the job. Inevitably this did lead to some disruption and dusty conditions but the tank was full and water supply in the villa was never an issue. The owners were informed by the property mangers beforehand that extra cleaning might be necessary and the owners agreed to pay if taken up. Extra pool/Jacuzzi cleaning was undertaken during this period. The villa owners & property managers were not responsible for the works being carried out and a week before or after there would have been no problem. This may be a "standard" response but the goodwill offer of two weeks against the one week in question was a genuine offer which will not be compensated by the water company but would allow the guests to properly enjoy the villa which they clearly said was beautiful.
