About Teresa Larkin

Myself and my husband fell in love with Playa Blanca when we first arrived for a holiday in 2006, we just loved the restaurants and bars along the promenade and the marina the experience was so relaxing.

We are active and really enjoy the walks and cycling around playa Blanca.

Having enjoyed our holiday we returned to Playa Blanca at any opportunity we got.

In 2009 we took a year out from work and spent 12 months living in Playa Blanca so when we returned to Ireland we made a decision to buy a house in Playa Blanca for our future retirement.

Teresa Larkin purchased this villa in 2011

Why Teresa Larkin chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We searched every square inch of the resort to find the ideal property; we wanted something private with views of the sea and wanted the convenience of modern day living.

So in 2011 we bought our new villa in Playa Blanca, we undertook major construction changes and adapted the property to our specification.

What makes this villa unique

We just love the house and are really looking forward to having more time their in the future,

To help pay for it we decided to rent the house out.

We have appointed an excellent property manager.

Also if you would like some recommendations on restaurants and entertainment we would be delighted to help.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would be delighted to offer you our thoughts on our stay at Villa Tessa. 

Firstly,we were pleased that you responded to our emails so promptly throughout the booking process.

We found the villa in perfect condition; spotlessly clean and with plenty of equipment available to maintain these standards through the week. 

We were very pleased to have your phone call asking if we needed anything, and also with your prompt response to a minor complaint. 

The villa was very well equipped for self catering purposes and for entertainment. 

The outside of the villa is perfect for days in the sun and for dining in the evenings. We especially liked the three tiers of terrace so that we could move around for different perspectives of the view through the day. 

It would be difficult to find fault with any aspect of the holiday. 

We have stayed in a variety of apartments, hotels and villas and Villa Tessa stands out as being the most relaxing and comfortable venues of all.

Lovely Villa, Lovely Pool, Lovely View....

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 10 day break, booked after reading the reviews, glad we did!!!

Brendon and Teresa are super helpful and really friendly, Villa is just outside of town so recommend a car. If your idea of whaling away the sunny days by a pool taking in the lovely views, then this is a winner...10/10

Owner's Response: Hi Jean Thank for your kind review. We normally replace all new linen towels and pillows once a year in September. It is a pity you did not tell us this during your stay and we would have replaced the pillows for you. Some client’s preference is for soft pillows perhaps we will offer an option for hard or soft pillows on a booking request. Delighted you have pre booked again for next year. Kind Regards Teresa

Lovely property, well laid out and great outside space

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Villa Tessa. Brendan was extremely helpful and the property was perfect for us, in a quiet location, but easy to get to the main centre of Playa Blanca.

The pool was a huge hit with the kids and a good temperature.

I would thoroughly recommend this property for a family holiday.

The villa was well managed, clean and well equipped.

A private villa with a southern aspect and views over Playa Blanca.

  • 5 of 5

Located at the rear of Playa Blanca on an elevated position in an area of mixed holiday and residential properties. Private and well appointed.

We sought a relaxing week with some early sunshine which ticked all the boxes. Explored the island, enjoyed the lava fields and volcano park. We believed Playa Blanca was the best location even if at the southern tip of the island. The Marina was one of our favourite locations to eat and visit. Enjoyed the market on Wednesday, good quality merchandise. The main town also had a high quality feel and ate at restaurants on the sea front.

Will definitely return for another off season break in the future.

Thank you Brendan for your attentive service.

Fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (hubby and 3 small kids) had a fabulous week in this villa in Feb 2017. We couldn't have asked for more and Brendan was really pro active about keeping in touch and making sure that everything was in order - which it was! We will definitely be back and had a fantastic holiday.

The beautiful Pappagayo beaches are totally unspoiled and are set in a national park area, you can drive on a dirt road to the Pappagayo beaches but it is a pleasant walk along the coast, approximately 45 minute walk from the town .As you walk along the wonderful promenade at the sea front you can eat and drink in many of the top quality bars and restaurants.

Travel:

Arrecife airport is the only airport in Lanzarote their are regular flights from most international airports .

A taxi from the airport to the house in Playa Blanca will cost around €45 (good taxi service).

Further Details:

There are a host of things to do in Playa Blanca While you can eat and drink in many of the top quality bars and restaurants (which Playa Blanca is renowned for) the night life would not be as riotous as it is in other resorts on the Island, however there are a number of excellent entertainment bars.
