About Julian or Judy Wise

We first went to Lanzarote in 1979, and fell in love with the island. We bought the land and built CASA COLINA in 1987. The villa has a wonderful feeling of tranquility and as our family grew up we enjoyed many happy holidays in the Casa Colina and Playa Blanca . We were lucky to own some land close by and we built another villa in 2002 where we still holiday and we are now in a position to spend most of the winter in Lanzarote.

We live in the summer in Rutland and Judy, my wife, enjoys her golf and we both love sailing.

Julian or Judy Wise purchased this villa in 1987

Why Julian or Judy Wise chose Playa Blanca

In our opinion we were so lucky to find this location many many years ago, being on high ground, on possibly the best estate, close to all amenities but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Locations like ours do not exist anymore

We spent a lot of time deciding on a design that gave really good accommodation and a feeling of space. This we achieved.

The quality of build is excellent and the villa today looks as good if not better than when it was built. We are very proud that eighty percent of our bookings are now guests returning for another holiday in Casa Colina.

What makes this villa unique

We have never considered CASA COLINA a letting house. We have always thought of it as our house where we have friends and guests to stay many coming back year after year. We have couples who enjoy all the space and tranquility, and families who return regularly. Our mission statement is ' Colina should give you an experience you will remember',and hopefully you will come and visit us again.

Perfect location and lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 and stayed here for one week. We have rented lots of villas over the years and this was one of the best. It's very spacious, plenty of wardrobe space, good sized rooms and a very large outside area. It's like a home from home. The grounds are well maintained in the villa and the estate. It is a 10-15 minute walk one way to Flamingo beach and the same again the other way in to the town so no need for a car if you're happy with a short walk. We all agreed we would definitely stay here again if we stayed in Playa Blanca.

Perfecte Villa

  • 5 of 5

Helga + Rüdiger


September/Oktober 2016

Wir verbrachten 4 herrliche Wochen in der wunderschönen, perfekt eingerichteten Villa.

Das Team um Chris sorgte für unbeschwerte Ferien, einen gepflegten Garten sowie einen

sauberen Pool. Die windgeschützte Terrasse war unser bevorzugter Aufenthaltsort – vor allem abends. Der liebevoll gestaltete Aussenbereich mit Pool inklusive bequemen Liegen lud zu einem erfrischenden Bad ein. Sportlich konnte man sich auch auf dem nahen Tennisplatz betätigen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gab es quasi direkt vor der Tür. Die Strandpromenade von Playa Blanca lädt zum Bummeln und Verweilen ein. Auf der ganzen

Insel gibt es viele gute Restaurants, die einen Besuch lohnen.

Fazit: Wir sind begeistert von Lanzarote und kommen garantiert wieder in die Casa Colina!

Lovely property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Casa Colina and Playa Blanca, on holiday with our son, wife and three grandchildren. The villa was perfect - a short walk to the town and all restaurants, shops etc, lovely gardens, sea view and very peaceful.

The children especially loved the pool. It was small but great for our brood aged from 7 to 10. We could relax on a sun bed in the shade and keep an eye on them easily. We did not use the large pool at all.

The villa itself was well equipped and everything was in working order. We appreciated the welcome pack of essentials but a quick orientation look round and a walk into town soon topped up essentials of liquids - water, wine , beer and tonic (and food of course). A short 4 euro taxi ride back and we were set for a lovely holiday.

We did not meet Julian and Judy during our stay but did meet the friendly pool man and Chris who changed the linen half way through our 12 day stay.

A great stay at a lovely villa. I would thouroughly recommend it for a perfect family holiday and my daughter in law is already talking about booking it for next year.

Super quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We are just back from visiting this villa must say it was a very relaxing holiday because this Villa is in one of the quietest areas we have stayed but still close enough that we didn't need to hire a car.

The property was as described on the site, very spacious, it was just two of us so we chose the rom with the French doors leading to the terrace and the pool. There is ample seating for the maximum number if you were to occupy the whole villa.

We used the washing machine which was great for beach towels. There was a welcome pack on arrival which was a nice touch as we arrived late afternoon and didn't feel like shopping. The beds are very comfortable and we both slept very well. The Bedding was fresh as were the towel. The bathrooms were clean however some things were a bit dusty with kitchen tops and door handles being a bit tacky to the touch however this is a very minor point but one a felt I had to mention in case anyone reading this has allergies but I'm sure the owners will resolve this as they may not be aware. I would definitely return to this villa.

I did not meet the owner but we spoke on he phone, I met with the caretaker/cleaners and the pool man and all well friendly, the pool an particularly was very knowledgable about the island.

Owner's Response: Dear Jane, Thank you for your kind words. This summer has been particularly dusty on the island, we are addressing the problem you kindly raised. We have just replaced 75% of beds with Hypnos mattresses and we now have an Emperor size bed (2m by 2m) in the master bedroom. J&J.

Casa Colina was a wonderful villa in a wonderful location, so wonderful that we booked for next year as soon as we got back home!

The villa is beautiful and spacious and has a lovely character. It was perfect for our family group of 5 adults - with its 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and large lounge and dining area, everyone was able to have their own space comfortably without getting under each other's feet.

The garden was absolutely beautiful too with a very generous supply of outdoor furniture where there was a spot for everyone outside whether we wanted sunshine, shelter or shade or wanted to sit/sunbathe round the pool or on the patio at one of the tables under cover and out of the glare of the sun when appropiate.

Casa Colina is very well equipped and has great kitchen and utilty area facilities too, so eating and cooking was also very easy and a pleasure to do on the evenings that we dined at home and enjoyed the villa. There were even candles on the dining table!

The location was just perfect within walking reach to the well stocked local Spar, into town and to the Flamingo beach and to the promenade. I loved being able to see the sea from the villa and watch the ferries come in!

The villa is very well maintained and beautifully clean and also feels very homely. It was lovely to meet owners Julian and Judy and the maintenance team too. What delightful people who seem genuinely keen for you to enjoy the property.

All in all, we had a fabulous week with the only complaint being that we had to move out after a week and let someone else into what had become 'our' home!! We have to return as we still have so much still to explore

PLAYA BLANCA has long been considered the most PRESTIGIOUS resort on the island, and now boasts a stunning new yacht marina with waterside restaurants. The adjoining coastline, which includes the GOLDEN SANDY beaches of the Papagayo, has been declared an area of outstanding natural beauty. Casa Colina offers a rare opportunity to rent on the most DESIRABLE development of DETACHED PRIVATELY OWNED villas in Playa Blanca. It has a delightful mature garden, SECLUDED terraces with shaded areas for eating al fresco, and sunny areas around its own solar heated fresh water plunge POOL, for sunbathing. From the terrace there are extensive VIEWS of the sea and the islands of Lobos and Fuertaventura. One great advantage of Casa Colina is that it is within 5 minutes walk of the nearest shop, and 10 minutes from the heart of the village with its BEACH and further shops and many restaurants.
