About John

We are John and Rochelle (Hence the name of the villa) and we used to live in Solihull in the West Midlands (UK) but have recently moved to a 2nd villa in Lanzarote. We used to visit Lanzarote 3 or 4 times a year and always tried to improve the villa on each and every visit based on the feedback of our customers - We hope you like the way we have presented the villa. Recent changes :

2015 - Internet TV replaced the two packages for ease of use (still the same, great choice). Replaced Pool and Hot tub covers.

2013 - We added Internet TV to get ITV ; BBC and much more ; Upgraded Sky to Sky HD (Full Package) ; Increased height of White wall to improve privacy

2012 - Replaced outside furniture with Modern Rattan ; 2011 - Replaced all Blinds ;

2010 - Added 32" flatscreen to lounge, 26" flatscreen to master bedroom.

2009 Nintendo Wii + New hot tub fitted (sunk behind BBQ).

2008 - Pergola added to garden area.

2007 - king-sized BBQ built on terrace.

John purchased this bungalow in 2004

FANTASTIC VILLA !!! :)

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Faro Park many times ( 17 times in the last 7 years in fact) we love the place!... We have always rented a villa, but can honestly say out of all that we have rented 'Villa Rochelle' is the best by far! ... the listing was accurate ie: facilites, layout etc . however the photos don't do it justice, the gardens etc are absolutley beautiful!! everything about the Villa is just so lovely, the welcome pack - perfect, beds - very comfortable, Pool - constant warm temp, Hot Tub - to die for!! ( In fact i've talked Hubby into getting one! ) Our whole holiday stay at "Villa Rochelle" was fantastic. Thank you John and Rochelle for sharing your villa with us, ;) we highly recommend your family friendly villa... and anyone reading this review, believe me you wont be disappointed in staying here ;)

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay. The only thing I want to add is for 2 previous guests who stayed recently as you both reported mattresses were not comfortable and may read this - based on your feedback we have invested in new mattresses and new Egyptian cotton bedding to try to maintain the villa at ithe high standard we want it.

no sun stay at home

  • 3 of 5

fantastic villa however weather was against us also there is no mourning sun as Montoya Roja is in the way

if via the weather forecast you know to be bad stay at home other than excellent tv package there is nothing else to do

Owner's Response: Very disappointed to receive a review of our villa where the low score seems to reflect the weather experienced by the holiday maker rather than the quality of the villa. A "fantastic villa" surely warrants a higher score than 3, our lowest ever score from any review.

Excellent villa in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Villa Rochelle and I can honestly say it was the best holiday I have ever had. and we have had quite a few!

We arrived in the middle of the night after an horrendous journey, but once we opened the door it felt like we had come home.

The villa was spotless, tidy and had everything we needed. There was a welcome pack of food & drink and a lovely card and bottle of bubbly waiting for us (it was our honeymoon).

We booked the villa based on the pictures of the outside space and we were definitely not disappointed. It was completely private, well laid out and very spacious. The outdoor furnishings were extremely comfortable and of very high quality.

We booked the wi-fi and it was very fast, as was the internet TV.

The huge barbecue was fantastic and the hot tub was a great place to relax in the evenings.

We found it very easy to get into town or the marina on the bus. The stop was a 5 minute walk away over some wasteland (we didn't need to go to the shops to catch it, as mentioned in the villa guide).

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough and we have been talking about when we might revisit already!

Thank you so much to John, Rochelle and the management team for making our honeymoon so perfect.

Owner's Response: Pleased to hear you enjoyed your honeymoon at our villa and more pleased to hear it lived up to your expectations. We always try to add a little extra for those special occasions. To balance things for readers... not all feedback is as positive as this and we sincerley try to react to all feedback and are planning a new suite shortly for the lounge and we feel we need to replace some of the smaller detailed things like mattress protectors as feedback suggests this. We welcome and act on all feedback from our guests whether this is done publicly like this one or privately on feedback forms to our management team.

Very Impressed

  • 5 of 5

Having just spent two lovely weeks at Villa Rochelle, we were very impressed with the standard of the accommodation and particularly with the fabulous outside space. We found the villa to be well equipped and maintained and the on site management team were extremely helpful and responsive.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to others and we would definitely consider renting again next time we visit Playa Blanca.

A car is useful, which we knew beforehand, but there are a number of local bars and restaurants within a ten minute walk of the villa.

The property is on a gated residential estate which is very quiet and peaceful and the villa can be alarmed when unattended and overnight, so there are no security worries.

Good but could be better!

  • 4 of 5

A well furnished villa and in a fairly quiet place until the villa 2 along and 1 behind decide to have a party, lasting into the early morning. (this happened twice)

A few faults: on arrival very low on glasses. Some were brought but not really enough. Wi Fi is available but at an extra cost. The SKY package did not include the basic BBC and ITV channels.

My main grouse was the wording about the cleaning of the barbecue.I felt that this almost amounted to a threat. If the barbecue is not left clean then the damage deposit can be taken. The actual wording was quite intimidating. We always leave our villa very clean, and have never had any complaints.

  • Review Submitted: 19-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: January 2013
  • Source: Owners Direct, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: We always welcome and act upon constructive feedback as our many, many repeat guests will testify. We acted upon this feedback in February, when it was given privately ! Glasses : Several glasses appear to have been broken just prior to this booking - We added more and have since added a stock for our villa managers to top up as needed. Wifi : Where other Owners offer "Free" Wifi, the base cost of the holiday is higher. We choose to allow guests to pay for it if they want it in order to keep base costs low. We did the same with our Hot Tub at the time (few do this) and this guest chose not to have it and therefore hired our villa for four weeks at a very reasonable rate, compared to others of this standard. We have since included the hot tub as we have been advised not to leave it empty for long periods. Sky TV : NO Sky Package in Lanzarote (or elsewhere abroad) includes basic BBC and/or ITV as they are not part of the Sky offering. As a regular to Lanzarote David should have known this. In our area 2 of the 11 phases get ITV/BBC through communal dishes so the vast majority including us do not get it. In April this year, we added Internet TV to the villa via a 2nd paid subscription and now get the full range of UK Terrestial Channels (ITV1 to 5 ; BBB1 to 3) in addition to our upgraded Sky HD (Full Package with Movies and Sports). BBQ : If you are the type of person who Cleans a BBQ after using it, a message asking you to please clean it should not offend. We have had several guests who have used it and left it in a terrible state hence the polite notice to say that if it left in a mess PART of the bond will be deducted to cover the additional cleaning as this can take over an hour to clean properly given its size (King-sized). I am staggered that someone would take offence if they are the type to clean it, rather than try to understand why we had to do something to try to address the problem. We have also addressed another comment made by David Privately at the time (Ironing Board was immediately replaced) We do not provide waste bags (apparently these were expected by this guest) - We have spoken to many owners and no-one provides such consumables. I am a little perpelexed as to why someone chooses to feedback in this way eight months after having stayed at the villa, especially having also said in earlier feedback that "The villa’s kitchen was the best equipped we have used on Lanzarote".
