About George Rashbrook
Hello. My name is George. I am 55, and married with 2 kids, who are both in University now. We live in West Wales, and own a Pub in a beautiful village. We bought the Villa as a new build, and use it once a year for our family holiday, and rent it out for the rest of the time.
George Rashbrook purchased this Villa in 2006
Why George Rashbrook chose 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 it has land around it giving it space to add privacy. The wall next to our neighbours 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 which is 5 minute walk away. It is very quiet, but not far from the restaurants, bars and shop at Faro Park, which is also only 5 minutes on foot. If you want to get in to Playa Blanca the taxi service is fantastic and only about 5 euros to get in to town if you don't want to drive.
What makes this Villa unique
Peace, privacy, open views. Space. Coast. Comfort. Everything has been done properly. No cheap nasty furniture or crockery. Tried to make everything perfect
Pool / Spa

Great Villa with many facilities
A great villa with many amenities not found in many places e.g. dishwasher, range of tv channels and film library, "heated" swimming pool which was excellent.
Thanks for your review, and I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our Villa.
Lovely villa in great location with good amenities
Very impressed with the villa, especially the outside space which gives great options for sun / shade etc. Pool heated and at really comfortable temperature. Great selection of TV channels especially for the sports fan. Good spacious fridge and freezer. Location gives good privacy at rear and views out to coast and sunsets. Will definitely consider visiting again.
Relaxing place to stay
Originally came here to look at buying property on the island, but this villa was so quiet and relaxing that it turned into a holiday too! Heated Pool was a great addition and perfect to cool off in the midday sun. Normally stay in resort hotels on my many previous visits to Lanzarote but thought that to experience what it would be like to Live here I needed to rent a villa. George, do you want to sell it? :-)
Great location, you can be in the pool and watch the sun dip into the ocean at sunset, you can see to the ocean from the pool! The sea is about 300-400mtrs from the villa with a path along the seafront for those who like to walk.
I like the fact that the villa is filled with quality furnishings too, the only thing that I need to add is that the table and chairs out on the patio could do with a coat of varnish, I suppose that is the sea air eating away at it. That said, they were still good to use.
Overall, totally recommend a stay here for a relaxing holiday away from the tourist hustle and bustle.
Just back from a 10 day stay at Georges villa, It was just as described, very private, immaculately presented, lovely garden, patio and pool, highly recommended
I’m so glad you had a good time and really appreciate your review.
Very relaxing holiday
Loved our time at Villa Olimi, great location and had everything we needed. Pool great as is the outside private space. Near to shops and restaurants, very safe and secure location for two females.
Thanks for your kind review and for coming to stay at Olimi.
I hope you come back one day.
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.
Taxis are about 35 euros.
There is a Bus Service that is every half hour into Playa Blanca from Faro Park nearby.
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.
Spanish, Indian and Chinese restaurants, bar, close to the villa. 5 minute walk.
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.
Great Diving with the Rubicon Marina Diving School.
