About Julie Brassill

I currently work part time on a busy surgical ward as a Staff Nurse. My husband is a practising GP. We all love the outdoor life and play tennis and golf for our local clubs. The boys play rugby and our daughter plays hockey, representing School, University and local teams. Our eldest son Sean is working in business, Alex our second son is studying Biomedical Science at Newcastle University and Sophie our daughter is at Sixth Form. We also have Jessie our adored Golden Retriever. We have been visiting Lanzarote for the last 20 years and love the all year round climate. We particularly love Playa Blanca for its wonderful beaches and upmarket feel. The standard of cuisine is excellent, we really enjoy visiting the various restaurants and eating outside on balmy evenings.

Julie Brassill purchased this villa in 2005

Why Julie Brassill chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

We fell in love with our villa because it is so large and spacious, and set in its own extensive grounds. The majority of the rooms look onto the pool and garden area and the large windows throw light into the villa bringing the garden indoors. The patio area is south facing and extensive allowing optimal sunbathing and our three children have great fun with ball games and with a good run up, landing in our very own pool. We really enjoy the villa because it affords us our own space, even when our friends stay with us and we have home from home facilities. We love the fact that it is so private and not overlooked offering peace and tranquility with wonderful mountain views and yet has everything on its doorstep.

What makes this villa unique

We bought the villa originally for ourselves but being tied to school holidays we have successfully rented out for the last 8 years. We eventually plan to semi-retire here avoiding the cold winters at home and look forward to being able to accommodate our large English and Irish family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had a wonderful holiday and very much enjoyed the villa - perfect for two families. The villa had everything and more. Great to have the Wi Fi and extensive TV package. I can't think of anything that could have made our holiday more enjoyable.



Thank you Julie, the villa was more than expected, so large it comfortably accommodated our three generations of family. It was clean and well equipped with a very large garden and pool area, lovely and private.



We had a great time in Playa Blanca. It's the first time we have come home discussing when we could return. The villa was so lovely and quiet and we really enjoyed the privacy.



Absolutely loved the pool and garden area, the warm crystal clear water kept my water babes happy even on the odd cloudy day!



What a great time we had in Playa Blanca, we enjoyed the villa very much if you are ever thinking of selling it please let us know.



Your English management team were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

First class accommodation in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Villa Blackrock, which provides an excellent base in Playa Blanca to enjoy Lanzarote. Comfortable beds & a well equipped kitchen made it feel like a home from home.

Only a tricky to open kettle and a shower curtain rail that likes to fall from its position above the bath proved to be minor inconveniences.

We would definitely recommend the property to other families.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 people travelling together and we all had a very nice stay at this villa. Our holiday was great and we also had such a good weather during our stay there. Everything about the villa was as we expected and nothing came as a surprise. It is very clean and also well equipped. We definitely recommend this place and also to families travelling with young children.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We could not fault this villa one bit. We had a fantastic stay, the villa had everything we needed and more. We had 2 babies with us and Julie and the management team were fab in making sure we had the cots we needed. Could not have asked for anymore. Very clean and well kitted out! We would definitely stay again.

The worse thing we can say and it is so minor is that we only had one outside light working and no pool light working but this did not ruin our stay one bit. Fab villa and very highly recommended. Perfect for travelling with babies and children :-)

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from a lovely relaxing holiday at Villa Blackrock. Our party was 7 adults and an 11 month old baby. The villa was very spacious and we all felt it was a great space without being cramped. The villa was well looked after and very clean throughout. The welcome pack in the fridge was a lovely touch. We had a small issue accessing the internet early into the holiday but this was quickly resolved by the management team who were great so no problems there. The villa itself is situated in a very secure residential area with gated access just outside of Playa Blanca, it had lovely outdoor space and we enjoyed lovely balmy evenings on the spacious terrace. The taxi service was excellent, very reliable and cheap for when we wanted meals out in Playa Blanca or Marina Rubicon which was lovely. Watching the sun set from the marina was lovely. They also had local markets twice a week which are worth a visit. Totally enjoyed the stay and will most certainly return again.

Lovely villa!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely 2 weeks at villa Blackrock! A lovely spacious villa with everything you need plus great outdoor space and lovely pool!! Was quite a long walk to playa Blanca with children in tow! But cabs are easy to get, we also hired a car to visit further afield!!! A Walk up Montana Rioja behind the villa is well worth the climb!!! We loved our stay here and will definitely return one day!!!! Only issue I would say is that the windows in one of the bathrooms don't open with any of the keys! And also the windows and patio doors in one of the twin rooms won't open which makes it pretty hot and uncomfortable at night!! We also had no wi fi whilst we were there! The management team are really good and helpful but not sure what the issue with it was! Just meant lots of moaning from the kids!!!! But would definitely recommend a stay here!!! Marina rubicon is lovely! Aqua lava is a good water park but not so great for 13+ would say more suited to younger children! Papagayo beach is a must see!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and rating us 5 star* and we are very happy that you are planning to return to our villa. It was unfortunate that Movistar the internet provider could not deal with the high tourist demand during the peak season and failed to honour the customer service expected of them. In response we have now changed provider and wi-fi is reinstated. We have also contacted a locksmith to address the missing key issues. Customer service is a priority for us and we have an excellent English management team who provide 24 hour assistance making sure all situations are dealt with promptly and efficiently, it is of utmost importance to us to ensure our guests have the best possible holiday experience. Warmest regards. Julie.
