The farmhouse is built in the traditional (sugar cube style) thick stone method. Most of the ceilings are about 20 foot high so air conditioning is not necessary. In addition all outside windows have inward openings with Louvre shutters to allow free airflow. The interior layout and design is in keeping with the character of this old property, yet fully suited to a party of eight or just a couple staying (like ourselves).

About Timothy Kelleher
Dianne and myself with our 3 children and 5 grandchildren. We live near Newbury on the Hampshire / Berkshire border. Our adult (sometimes!) children regularly holiday at the farmhouse with their sprogs, and we feel others may wish to have the opportunity to share the same experience. We have 20 odd years of guest's comments in the visitors books, and, on request, we can let you have email addresses or phone numbers of those guests who stayed and survived and also gave their okay to pass on their contact details.
Timothy Kelleher purchased this Villa in 1992
Why Timothy Kelleher chose Teguise
We purchased our property in February 1992. We were looking for winter sun seclusion and of course tranquillity. The farmhouse is situated on the edge of the farming village of Tao and is located in a strict conservation area with only 4 or 5 other properties in our vicinity. Ours was the first to be renovated! The property was pretty much a ruin with no running water or electricity. Most of the roof was gone and a donkey inhabited one of the bedrooms. It was twelve months before we were able to enjoy electricity! Over the twenty five years we have had many beautiful holidays as we steadily renovated every aspect of the house. Our children have always enjoyed the lovely ambiance and character of no 4. Now our grand children are doing the same. we have two neighbours
What makes this Villa unique
We call the property no 4 as originally it didn't have a name, so we just called it number four and it stuck! The farmhouse is spacious airy and has its own special character. we have had three seriously major refurbishments over the last few years, we now have a club room with bar (I call it club Iguana) snooker /pool table, A brilliant centrally enclosed patio! There are 2 double bedrooms, (both with a fully equipped ensuite shower room). A third double bedroom and separate twin bedroom sharing a family sized fully equipped wet room All showers are powerful. A front lounge with TV and DVD player. all BBC and ITV channels can be accessed as well as most German channels. Wifi is available but only for emails. So if you are a rock star or famous actor and need some privacy, this could be your Shangri-la. However, if you've been on Big Brother, no 4 will not give you the attention you deserve!

Fantastic little piece of Heaven
Beautiful ,very tasteful accomodation with everything you require for a super relaxing holiday away from it all .Our second visit and probably not our last. It lures you back ! Well appointed, but a car is essential. Local restaurants and villages short car ride.The pool is a fab extra .....heated too! This accomodation is superb and highly recommended....Jan and Mark McGreevy
Hello Jan and Mark.
Thankyou for your kind comments about your stay in September.
It is a real motivator for the team to know that their work and support is appreciated.
See you again we hope!!!
If you stay at this villa, you will want for nothing! Super accommodation with more than enough space for a large family to relax on holiday, whether in the central or TV lounge(with excellent satellite TV by the way!!) or by the lovely pool with ample sun loungers and seating at the two tables - there is even a special stone seat for the man with the cold beer whilst he watches lovingly over the BBQ. Talking of food, the kitchen is very modern and fabulously equipped with all mod cons and storage space. There is a lovely dining room, although we did eat outside all the time, and the Iguana or party room. The villa is in a rural location but only a short drive from the local shops, bars, restaurants or supermarkets.
Four adults had a great time and will undoubtedly return!
Hi Lorraine and Kevin,
Many thanks for your detailed comments.
We are delighted that you and your friends have enjoyed the major renovations to the farmhouse.
We also appreciate the 'tip' for future guests and they are now in place!! You could be a consultant for Holiday properties 😎
Should you decide to visit again you will be most welcome!
Best wishes to you both
Tim and Dianne
Beautiful, relaxing, secluded, luxurious villa
what a wonderful 10 days just spent here - first time abroad for our young family and the kids loved it so much that mum and dad were able to relax too. The villa is superbly furnished and the facilities are top quality. So many thoughtful details in every room that made it a home from home. Beautiful and secluded location but not more than a few minutes in a car to restaurants and supermarkets. The bar and games room was a real hit with the whole family as was the pool of course. Would definitely return
Dear Andy and Family
Thank you for your kind comments on no 4!
We are delighted that your stay met both your expectations and the children too.
Our neighbours have a 'wandering Iguana', which is where the name of the club room comes from!
We look forwards to your return again in the future.
Tim and Dianne
We have visited this farmhouse a number of times and it never disappoints
Everything you could wish for and more
Home from home
Set away from the main road of Tao you will find a Beautiful converted farmhouse with great views and all the mod cons, a very comfatable property which feels like "home from home", The owners Tim and Diane have left nothing to chance filling it with all the luxuries you would expect from a five star retreate. We stayed with our extended family, seven people in total, and still had room to spare, perfectly positioned to explore the whole island and only 15 minutes from the airport, Tim and Diane were extremely accommodating and left an extensive list of things to do and recommended some fantastic Resturant's which we were pleased to visit and enjoy, If your going to lanzarotie on holiday this relaxing home is a "must stay" and reasonably priced too, we will defiantly return. Dave and Ellie
Hi David Ellie and extended family!
Thank you for your comments and delighted you all enjoyed the island and the farmhouse.
The weather although bright, was a little cool with the wind coming from the east !
From what we know the Club Iguana was headquarters for the duration of your stay.
Look forward to seeing again one day soon.
Hope the wedding goes well🌴😎☀️
Luxurious peaceful farmhouse
We found this accomodation extremely well presented and furnished . The location was secluded and is peaceful for those looking for a relaxing holiday. Car hire is essential but all resorts and sights are easily reachable by car . Locally there are a good selection of bar and restaurants within ten to fifteen minutes drive from the farmhouse. We would be more than happy to recommend this property and will return there in the future . Thanks to Tim and Diane for the use of their little piece of heaven. Jan & Mark
