About Terri Shaw

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!

Terri Shaw purchased this villa in 2004

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.

Total Rlaxation

  • 5 of 5

After having a long winter, we decided that we wanted a holiday with constant sunshine and accommodation with some luxury - this was ideal. Well decorated and very well equipped with a fabulous swimming pool that was used every single day.. it is very peaceful and with it being in a gated community, the privacy is a bonus. We loved it that much we have booked again for next year. Great communication. With the owners throughout.

We have had a fantastic stay. The villa was perfect. Clean spacious and very private. Well equipped exactly as described. Local shops walking distance and Playa Blanca five minute drive. Teguise Market a must. Would recommend and we will be back I'm sure.

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!
