Villa in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote - Peacefull Location, 3 Minute Drive To Playa Blanca (30 Min Walk), Car Hire Is Recommended

Luxury private Villa, Villa Tessa is situated overlooking Playa Blanca and beautiful mountain and sea views. The property is not overlooked, Villa Tessa is just a few minutes’ drive (30 minute walk) from the picturesque town centre, where you have a variety of restaurants, bars and shops to choose from. There are a host of things to do in Playa Blanca from enjoying the beautiful Papagayo beaches, to the wonderful walks along the promenade at the sea front. 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. There are currently two 18 hole golf courses in Lanzarote, the nearest one is located 30 minute drive. Playa Blanca has a Pitch and Putt course located at the promenade. There is a wide variety of water activities available in Playa Blanca.

About the Owner

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.

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.

Our best find yet

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is spacious and well equipped perfect for our party of four adults and one 15 year old. We loved the pool, the views, the full on sunshine and the great evenings sitting outside enjoying the BBQ food. Playa Blanca is a great town with much to do; great shops, bars & restaurants and beach front walks. Our favourite was the harbour area with loads happening. Do try the Upper Deck restaurant for great local food and friendly staff. If I could wish for one extra little thing that would be air conditioning in the villa but in no way did this spoil our two week stay. The owners Brendan & Teresa are fantastic and very supportive before & during the holidays. We thoroughly recommend this villa our best find yet.

Fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well presented and spacious villa. The pool was superb - perfect temperature - the children enjoyed it enormously! On booking, Brendan gave us a ring and also the day after we arrived to ensure everything was ok. Please can we have 6 sun beds as the children kept taking 2!! Would recommend and re-book - definitely need a car! Many thanks! The Stanley Martins!

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

Dear Teresa and Brendan,

This has been the best holiday for us have had in years. The villa was beautiful, tidy and fully equipped. The view is beautiful to the mountain and to the sea. It was very relaxing to spend time in Villa Tessa and we wanted to stay the end of time. :) Our 4 year's old little girl was really enjoyed the private heated swimming pool as well. We are definitely recommend to friends, family and everybody. The owners were extremely helpful during booking and throughout the holiday.

Would definitely like to come again next year!

Thank you again,

Eva and Andras

We went to lanzarote for our honeymoon and wanted a private villa with a pool. When we saw villa tessa on the internet we thought if it was half as good in reality we would be happy. However, it surpassed anything you see on the website. There is nothing we would complain about, everything is in good order and everything you could possibly need , and more. Lovely beautiful villa that we have no hesitation in recommending. Brendan's attention to customer service is unrivalled and he is a pleasure to deal with.

Very good standerd

  • 5 of 5

We were asked by the owners to write an honest review on their buitiful villa that is advertised on your website. Unfortuinitly we only got to stay in Villa Tessa for 4 nights as it was not available for the full week, the owners did not charge us full rate as it filled voids in their booking calendar. To be honest It was a fabulous villa and we will definitely book Villa Tessa again. The villa was well fitted out and well equipped. We did pay an extra €60 for the pool heating and that was well worth while as we spent a lot of time relaxing around the pool and tarrece area. The only regret we had was leaving the villa. Also thank you for your recommendations on the fabulous restaurants. See you next November, this time we will book on time to ensure a full week stay at villa Tessa . Regards from all the family. John

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and we are glad that you and Linda enjoyed it and would be delighted to accommodate  you on your return . The €60 extra for the pool heating is optional as electricity in Lanzarote is expensive, we could add it in the whole price but we like to give people the option as pool heating is not necessary all the year around. Best Regards Teresa P.s We are glad the restaurants we suggested worked out for you John but as we said before we can only suggest as we don't like recommending restaurants as people's taste in food can differ and you can also get them on a bad night.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


The Villa is a just a short drive (and 25 -30 minute walk) from the town beach and also the Dorada beach. 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.


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).

There is a bus service from the airport to Playa Blanca, available every hour on the half hour €3.50 pp.

Taxi from the house to Playa Blanca is between €3-€5.

Car hire is very reasonable and is recommended, for a standard car it is between 100 to 140 Euros (depending on the time of year).


A short drive from Playa Blanca, you can find some of the most renowned sites on the island. Timanfaya National Park, La Geria, Janubio salt flats, El Golfo (the green lagoon), Los Hervideros or the charming village of Yaiza. You can also visit the village of Las Breñas, where you can enjoy the spectacular panorama of Playa Blanca with Fuerteventura Island in the distance.

From Playa Blanca you can ferry across to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura which takes 25 to 35 minutes,

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.

The Marina has its own market which is very popular on a Wednesday & Saturday between 9am-2pm.The marina is also home to famous restaurants such as Cafe del Mar, Cassa Roja and the Commander to name just a few. Chilled out Jazz music every night in the Blue Note Jazz Bar.
