About the property

Villa in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote - Quiet Resort 5 Mins Drive To Restaurants And Beach

Spacious contemporary villa. Suitable for families or couples wanting a relaxing holiday. Heated pool. Large private patio, with 2 outside eating areas. Built in large BBQ. 32' flat screen TV with SKY box and freeview channels. Fans in bedrooms. Facilities for babies. Luxury mattresses on the beds. Black out blinds in all rooms, keeping them cool, and nice and dark for getting the kids to sleep. Endeavoured to create a contemporary and luxurious feel to the property. You may notice other villas in the area that look similar to ours. Our point of difference is that we are on the edge of the development and have open views to the seas horizon, others are penned in. We have heightened the adjoining walls to our neighbours so you have a very private sun terrace. We doubled the size of the standard patio, and landscaped the gardens with palms and plants. We have had a large BBQ built. All beds have very comfy mattresses and good quality bedlinen.

About George Rashbrook

Hi, my name is George, I am 47, married to Louise, 2 kids, and we live in Abergorlech. I spent some of my growing up years in the area, and packed up my job in London, working in the Fashion Industry, to live 'the good life' and give my kids a better environment to grow up in. So we moved to Abergorlech and bought the Pub, and later, the cottage, to share the village with visitors and hopefully create a business that allows us to live in such a beautiful place.

George Rashbrook purchased this villa in 2006

Why George Rashbrook chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

There are alot of villas in this area that look the same. We chose ours because it was on the edge of the development. This gives it open views to the seas horizon. It is also the biggest plot, so has land around it giving it space to add privacy. The wall next to our neighbour we have raised so you have complete privacy and peace. We have fitted the villa as we would want it, so super comfy beds, modern twist, with built in BBQ, extended patio, and extensively landscaped garden.

You can walk along the rocky coastal path with is 5 minutes walk away. It is very quiet, but not far from the restaurants, bars and shops.

What makes this villa unique

Peace, privacy, open views. Space. Comfort. Everything has been done properly. No cheap nasty furniture or crockery. Tried to make everything nice.

Notes on accommodation: Large windows or doors in all rooms, letting in plenty of air in the day or night. Black out blinds between window and curtain providing a shield from the suns heat, and also making it dark for the kids. Lit outside area, creates a lovely atmosphere. Lit pool for night time swims. We supply a good hair drier for the ladies ( my wifes idea, it creates more room in the luggage !!). Microwave bottle steriliser or the babies. We have a cot. High chair. We have aimed to use the best of everything and not done anything on the cheap to give you a really great luxury holiday. It is well maintained, the pool is cleaned and chemical checked weekly. Outside: 4 cushioned sun loungers. Outside wooden table, 2 benches, 2 armchairs. Outside fixed seating area, large marble table, seating for 8. Large purpose built BBQ. Very big patio. Raised adjoining walls to give additional privacy. Private pool, heated. It is hard to convey the peace and privacy of our villa pictorially, but if you email me I can send you more pics. As it is on the edge of the development it has lovely open views to the seas horizon, and cliff top walks. Other villas similar to ours are overlooked on all four sides. Our adjoining walls have been extended to above eye height maximising your privacy. We have had the garden landscaped with palms and plants. The standard villa patio is small so we have made ours much bigger. it is very private and very quiet. Utility Room: Washing machine, drying rack and pegs. Mops, buckets, (if you get the urge!). Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen provided. Also beach towels. 2 week visits get towel and bed linen change. We use an English run company for cleaning and maintenance, and they can be called for advice or if you have any probs. Other: Two outside eating areas. 1 covered patio to the front of the lounge. Wooden table and seating for 6. The second is a fixed area to the side of the house, covered, nicely lit, with a fixed marble table and seating for 8. Large built in brick BBQ.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

We choose this villa partly because of previous good reviews, and we weren't disappointed! After a delayed flight we followed the very clear directions given by George. We were impressed and pleased with how clean the villa was, the folders of information on how everything worked, the taxi number to get into town, which is well worth using as parking is at a premium now as the resort is so busy. We had a good week of weather in the end, as it was extremely windy to start and we had to wait for the sun, when you found a sheltered spot it was boiling! We were glad of the internet tv to watch on a couple of days while waiting for the clouds to blow over.

We have tried a few villas over the years, and can honestly say that Villa Olimi had been the best one, its clean, spacious, with very comfortable beds. The attention to detail from the owner, the very nice pool man and the villa manager is a welcome change.

We would not hesitate to choose this villa again for another holiday.

Everything you need, cant wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

It's has been more than two month since we got back from Lanzarote and the entire family agrees that were ready for another holiday in your lovely villa. It was everything we wanted it to be and more and we will definitely be back!

We all had a fabulous time in Lanzarote and the villa was just perfect for our family holiday and catered for us in every way we needed, we haven't stopped talking about the place with our friends and highly recommended Villa Olimi to them so business may be coming your way soon.

Thank you for everything George as you are very accommodating.

Brilliant family chill out holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 10 days with my wife, son, daughterin law and 4.5 month grand daughter. Cot, high chair and microwave steriliser were great to assist the baby. Kitchen had all items required including a dishwasher. Lounge comfy and and massive satellite tv with very basic and no UK channels. We utilised the WiFi which allowed us to use the tv and film downloads. Bedrooms and bathrooms were ideal for parents and grand parents to use separately. There is a utility room next to the outdoor seating area which houses the washing machine. The machine was old and about pack it in after years of use. We spoke to George and he arranged a brand new machine which was installed within a day. As you can imagine, we used the washing machine every day a number of times as you would back home. George acted promptly to our emails and Karen and Mike who oversee the villa locally made a visit. There is a nice built in BBQ which we used every second day to eat alfresco. The pool is very clean and heated. It is maintained weekly and we loved the fact that the baby could enjoy her first swimmimg lessons. There is a pool cover which helps with keeping the heat in and clean. Location wise, there is a need to use a car and travel into town which is a couple of minutes away. We shopped at the Hyper Dino in town and also at the Marina. There is a underground car park for the town shop and if can do your shop within a hour, there is no charge to leave the carpark. There is also shops across the road and down a lane where there is a couple of pubs, supermarket and restaurant. We ate at the La Flamenca on the Friday night after booking it on the Tuesday. Food was tremendous, especially the seafood and big portions. Recommend it highly. We also used to walk from the villa with the pram right along the coastal path past all the hotels and accomodations leading to the port. It is fairly undulating but you get an apetite for cake, coffee or iced drinks. We stopped at the Playa Blanca restaurant for rest and refreshments. Staff are excellent. We also ate there on the Sat night. Again food great and big portions.

The villa is definetely home from home in the sun. It is very quiet and private and allows you to totally chill. We will definetely consider a return as it meets all our needs especially with an expanding family. Big thanks to George for all his assistance, booking process and advice. Had brilliant family chill out time, plus the weather was fabulous. Recommend you will enjoy !

1st Class Villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the villa for 10 days. The accommodation is first class, everything you could need is catered for, fans are in both the bedrooms, the kitchen is well equipped right down to the kitchen having a dish washer and the master bed is more than comfortable. We found the villa clean and well maintained. We have stayed in many villas on the Canary Islands over the last few years and this is certainly one of the best we have stayed in. You won't go far wrong if your looking for a quiet, comfortable and enjoyable holiday villa.

Excellent Villa

  • 4 of 5

Just returned after a 14 night stay with my husband. Spotless property in a very quiet, safe area. Car is useful, but we did walk to Faro Park on a regular basis which is less than a 5 min walk if you use the coded gate at the bottom of the road and walk across the rough ground where we used the local bakery, mini supermarket and most importantly the 2 restaurants and The Lounge (quiet bar with reasonable priced drinks).

Heated swimming pool is just heaven and the villa is well placed to capture maximum sun with wonderful Lanzarotes breezes blowing across the outside space. Many a times we sat in the pool watching the sun go down.

In side all the furniture is very comfortable, kitchen well laid out with excellent working appliances and showers easy to control which deliver piping hot water.

We found the Cool boxes and ice packs very useful when going out for the day.

Playa Blanca is no more than 10 mins away by car and driving is so easy that even I felt confident driving around Lanzarote.

If we ever return to Lanzorete will definitely be booking the villa again. Would recommend to anyone who wants a holiday just to chill.

George may the whole booking, payment and arrival process so easy answering any concerns I had promptly.

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Just had 2 wonderful weeks at Villa Olimi. The villa was beautiful and very spacious both in and out - and we had absolutely everything we needed! Only a few minutes walk to the bus stop so we could get everywhere we needed to. The pool was fantastic - my 5 year old practically spent the entire 2 weeks in it and loved the inflatables! It was lovely to sit outside in the evenings to eat and we made use of the BBQ every night! The area is lovely and quiet and the villa is very private with no-one overlooking.

All in all, a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this villa!

5 mins to Playa Flamingo by car. Easy parking. Easy drive. Straight road. Excellent family beach. (10 mins from Papagayo beach). Never too crowded. Bars and restaurants here too. Sea not too deep or choppy, really good, white sand, kids love it. Sun loungers to rent, 7 euros for 2 with an umbrella.


Arrecife Airport is 35 mins drive away. Car hire recommended. Airport fairly small, so car hire is easy. We know a good guy who is reasonable and delivers to the airport if you would like his number. Route to the villa is easy, fairly straight roads, only roundabouts to negotiate.

There is a Bus Service that is every half hour into Playa Blanca. The Bus stop is 5 minutes walk away. Its a really good modern service.


5 mins by car to beach and main shopping area. 15 mins to the Marina Rubicon, more restaurants, up market shops, and yachts to admire.

Further Details:

Spanish, Indian and Chinese restaurants, bar, close to the villa. By car you have Playa Flamingo (beach) and Playa Blanca (small town) where you can find plenty of shops for gifts, provisions and restaurants. Nothing is too far away. Quiet roads, not too busy.

If you are travelling with a large party, we have friends who let their villa out which is next to ours, and identical. Pls let us know if you would like to try and book this at the same time.

Great Diving with the Rubicon Marina Diving School.
