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.

first impressions where very disappointing, the villa is in need of some TLC. we spent an hour on the first day hosing & cleaning all of the outside area. it went downhill from there.
pool table is unusable.
using kitchen app's and electric trips
we had ants in the kitchen & the front bedroom, we had to completely strip & treat the bed, told that this was because previous customers had not emptied the bins.
The description, states that there is a safe, there wasn't one, due to an incident with previous customers, we weren't informed of this beforehand, so took more cash than we would have, if we had known.
On day 6 we went out for the evening only to return to the villa being broken into, whilst we appreciate that this wasn't the fault of the owners, her delay in action afterwards was. We had 3 children with us & had to sleep overnight with no backdoor on the villa, & completely unsecured, to make the children feel better we had to barricade ourselves in the bedroom. a temp door was fitted the next day, this was in the form of an old door with planks of wood screwed to the wall to stop it moving. Even though the owner was informed she made no effort to contact us. I had to call her, to be told that she has the cost of the door to cover & it wasn't her problem if we had items taken,as stated in the T&C's, We also found out that this wasn't the first break in.
We managed to calm the frightened children down to stay in the villa, only to then have mice running around all evening (3 in total, caught few days after) again informed the owner at 9pm, but no reply. My husband & friends husband spent all night trying to catch them, finally give up at 1am, again we had to barricade the bedrooms to prevent the mice from getting into the bedroom. didn't hear from the owner the following morning, so again called her at 11am, to be told its normal to have mice in lanzarote, if this was so, why wasn't there any form of pest control in & around the villa, this was the final straw. HomeAway were amazing & paid for us to be moved for 3 nights to a hotel. the owner finally agreed to cover the cost of apartments for the last 3 nights, but has offered no other form of compensation. it is absolutely disgusting. I would not recommend that anyone stays in this villa, but if you do & something goes wrong, good luck, as the owner is not forthcoming & has no customer relation skills what so ever. Thank you to HomeAway for their prompt action.
Well equipped villa very quite location car hire essential
The villa is well located for a quite relaxing holiday The pool and outdoor area is ideal.
We travelled with our quadrapkgic son who is wheel chair bound the villa is all on one level which was ideal.
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 ?
Hi Sally my apologise for my late response to thank you for your review of your stay with us. We have had many email conversations in the past and I know you love our villa and it has been a pleasure accomodating you each time. It is so lovely to hear that our villa suits you & your family so well that you have booked with us again twice for next year (2019). What a recommendation we could not ask for more:thanks.
Good location for visiting all of the island. Best features, lovely warm swimming pool and relaxing hot tub.
What a fantastic holiday !
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.
Thank you for finding time to write this review: much appreciated. It is so nice to hear that you all enjoyed your stay with us and that it met your expectations. We are delighted you felt our villa was like 'home from home'. We strive to give you a warm welcome and to make your holiday experience the best possible. We also would like to take this opportunity to thank you for respecting our villa during your stay and for leaving it in a clean & tidy order hopefully as you found it! All the best it was our pleasure to meet you all. Hope to see you soon. Cheers! Tricia
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.
It is particularly warming when we receive such lovely reviews like this one and thank you for your thoughtful and kind comments. We were delighted you had such a memorable time, as our guests' satisfaction is paramount to us at Villa Estrellada. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review it would be great to meet you again on your next visit to Lanzarote.
