About the Owner

We are a married couple from Chester. We have 2 daughters who live in Dubai and Marseille in France.

After many years of traveling the world.

to visit everywhere that appealed to us,and of course for that all important sun, sand and beautiful beaches, we fell in love with lanzarote and it's captivating scenery.It is clean, quiet, with a lovely mixture of spanish and ex pats who welcome all visitors

with warmth,so we decided that here we would buy our home in the sun,and have never looked back what with all year round sunshine and reasonable flights from the uk, it works for us and all the guests and repeat guests that have visited Villa therese over the last 10 years. We have bought bikes for our guests to use to help them enjoy their stay that little bit more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a stay at Villa Theresa and cannot praise this excellent villa enough. It is a real home from home with the added benefit of a heated swimming pool as you walk from your bedroom. It has everything you can think of for a quiet relaxing break in the sun. Caroline Pettit.

Just spent a fabulous week at Villa Theresa, everything was superb. The perfect place to relax and chill out. Impressed with the service your company provided and the friendliness of all your staff. We will definitely be coming again and hubby has started looking at next years calendar already. Maria Hoyle

Dear Terri and Ray,

Well we are home and I wanted to e mail to say what a great time we had but also how beautiful your villa is! The picture's don't do it justice and it was so peaceful. Bliss. If we decide to go back to Lanzarote we would without doubt rent your villa and I have recommended it to all of our friends.

Thank you again,

Sharon Richard Tom and William Hagues.

Lovely Villa in a quite position well equipped handy to walk to an arcade of shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The property has been kept very neat , clean and has everything that you would want for a get away from it all holiday. The pool is great for all to enjoy and has nice privacy when laying on sun loungers for sun bathing. The surrounding gated patio is adequate and the area outside with your own parking slot is well kept. The villa is set in a gated area which gives a feel of security although on our 8 days we saw nothing that would make us feel unsafe as the island feels very homely. The restaurants and local shop is 10 mins walk and are very good and the coffee / patisserie in the arcade doubles up as a good non greasy cooked breakfast stop! We tried a few of the restaurants which were good but our favourite was an Italian.

The villa was very homely with everything that you might need (our fault took phone , iPad chargers but not a plug adapter but easily purchased for a couple of euros from the local supermarket.) Cannot think of anything it lacked even the large upright fans came in handy on a couple of hot , stuffy evenings. I have to say the Villa is very clean and well maintained a credit to the owners / team looking after it. The welcome pack on arrival is a real plus so thank you when you don't know where anything is in the area.

Furniture is of a good quality , two bathrooms is nice to have and wifi , sat tv with Sky Sports all worked well.

We didn't use the bikes but again a nice touch.

All in all a very good villa and if we came back to Lanzarote , would try and book it again. Thank you for allowing us to use your Villa.

All round excellent holiday base

  • 5 of 5

There will always be a few small snags to this sort of holiday and this was no exception but they were very minor and probably for the most part personal preference in nature - but as an overall summary a 5 star rating is really no exaggeration (and I'm a fussy traveller!).

The villa itself is well appointed and equipped with everything working. It was spotlessly clean on arrival. Certainly more along the lines of someone's holiday home being let out than a standard commercial rent. Having a comfortable feel is very important to quickly relaxing in new surroundings. Villa Therese is spacious too both inside and out.

Excellent friendly communication with the owners from booking to arrival and I did contact the local (English) managers who were equally responsive.

The La Goleta development is very quiet and peaceful but is a short drive away from the main town - one of my main reasons for choosing it - so if bars, beach and nightlife are your thing they are not just around the corner. I always hire a car from AutoReisen which is cheaper than transfers and local taxis and so much more flexible. There is plenty to see in Lanzarote and a car is really useful, driving is no different to being in Cornwall. There are a couple of local shops and restaurants in walking distance and it's not far to the coastal path but it is all rocks no sand until the town.

I would certainly return to this villa and would recommend it to family and friends.

Other quick selected positives: the communal pool is very nice and I never shared my swim with anyone else, the onsite bikes were a bonus and so much easier than the fuss off hiring, very private terrace/swimming pool area, Sky TV setup very good for us sports fans when you need a break from the sun.

Tranquil & relaxing, it felt like a proper holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we stayed at Villa Therese and we were not disappointed! Spacious, clean, quiet and extremely comfortable. The welcome pack left was fantastic, giving us much needed sustenance before getting to the shops to stock up. Our 4 daughters never left the pool the entire week, while my husband enjoyed relaxing in the shade of the terrace. Plenty of music CDs and movies too to entertain us in the evenings - it just felt like being at home, but a lot warmer and drier. It's the first villa holiday we have had and it certainly won't be the last. Thank you so much Terri & Ray for letting us enjoy your beautiful home in Lanzarote, it was fantastic!

We had a fabulous time here

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa in a peaceful location which has everything you could want. On our arrival we found the villa very clean and tidy with a great welcome pack which was very much appreciated. Great wi-fi connection and my football loving hubby was more than happy with the sky sports channels and i really didn't mind as i spent a lot of time in and around the heated pool which was a big bonus. Another added bonus for us ,as we did not hire a car, was the free use of the bikes , we really enjoyed cycling in and around Playa Blanca , parts of which we would not have seen had we not had them and also handy for going to the local shops. Going out on a night time was made very easy as the Taxi firm was very reliable and prompt. This is our first trip to Lanzarote but will definitely not be our last.

Does it get any better in La Goleta ?

  • 4 of 5

Just arrived home from a 9 day stay at Ray and Terri's villa and have to say that overall it was a good experience.

The negatives included some very tired bed linen which didnt fit as well as it used to, a tempermental kettle which took some undoing and most important of all a lack of information about the place and surrounds. Terri asked the management team to leave a Taxi number for us but the one left on a post it note went straight to an Spanish language answerphone. So having contacted the neighbours I noticed they had a ring binder with lots of information in it including Taxi, Bus service details etc.

IMO Villa Therese could do with an instruction folder to hold the Wi Fi information (does the pword really have to be that long ?) TV instructions (unplug/plug back in box at wall if you get no signal) as well as local numbers for emergency services, chemists, taxis, etc.

However on the plus side Terri was amazingly helpful prior to our visit, answering a string of emails with prompt responses. We managed the Supermarket shop and delivery to the house pretty well. Superdino will deliver if you spend more than €60 which was great as we didnt hire a car. The bike was very useful for those last minute items from the local shops in Faro Park (about a 4 minute cycle ride). Taxis got to know where we were and were prompt in response to our calls so I left a card in the villa with their number.

Therese is clean, well equipped, has a nice pool which was always pleasant to cool off as most most of our stay was 26C and sunny !. We watered the shrubs in the pots as much as we could and let the indoor one see the light of day as well. A few larger palms in pots would be nice idea ?

As I mentioned earlier it was a good experience overall, Therese is safe, secure (my Mother slept with her window open every night) and very quiet so If you're looking for a relaxing, peaceful, value for money villa within the Playa Blanca area it doesnt get much better than La Goleta !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment's on villa Therese. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and your mum slept well. The instructions for the wifi are beside the router? and we have a purple binder on the coffee table with all the information you need for buses, taxi's etc.? Other wise previous guests over the last 11years would not have survived. The linen is replaced on a regular basis as well (but I will mention your comments to our management team). Thank you for looking after the plant's as well. Regards Terri

Something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lanzerote and also our first villa holiday. We booked the last week in August and the first in September. On our arrival late evening, we were pleased to find a welcome pack with a few essential supplies to tide us over until the trip to the shops.

This villa is roomy, nicely furnished and very clean. The large pool area had a good selection of loungers, tables and chairs, meaning we had no need to use the dining room and it isnt overlooked. The kitchen was very well equipped and featured a dishwasher and a very large fridge-freezer. A divider separated the kitchen and living room, which had comfy settees, TV, radio etc.

The end bedroom has its own bathroom, so is quite self contained and private.

The development itself is very quiet. It is well away from busy roads, meaning we both slept well. The surrounding area is still largely undeveloped, helping with the peaceful feel to the place. In terms of local amenities, this does mean its a bit of a trek to the local shops, however the thoughtfully provided bikes made the job a little easier.

There is a very efficient bus service but we chose to use taxisi the short 5 euro trip to Playa Blanca, takes under 10 mins, where you will find a very large selection of restaurants, bars, shops and a really nice promenade walk, we particularly like the area around the marina We both really enjoyed our two weeks and we felt that the villa overall was very good value and left no area for complaint. We would recommend the villa and Playa Blanca to anyone

We would like to thank Teri for her help and advice on the area which only added to our enjoyment of our holiday as did the wonderful weather
