Beautiful villa beautiful island
So upon arrival we found the keys as instructed, the villa is just like the photos, plenty of space and amazing vistas. Pool was cleaned whilst we were there and we were asked if we wanted a linen change too. The road didn't bother us, and the wind is just what you need in the heat. Super holiday, thank you very much for the hospitality
Thank you very much Gemma.
Very nice to hear that you enjoy your holiday!!
Super stay in Lahania
As good as the pictures! Super house, beautifully presented and to arrive at 1am and find essential groceries was a much appreciated touch. Generous bedrooms, lovely terraces. It is set back off the main road leading from the North to the South of the island. It didn't bother us but may do for others. Whilst it is at the quieter end of the island this very much suited us. Car hire essential and lots to see and do. Lindos with it's pretty harbour, roof top restaurants and colourful shops was our "go to" place for evenings out (around 30 min drive?).
Thank you very much David.
Relaxed, comfortable and away from the crowds
We had a great time here in June. The villa has lots of room and could easily sleep a few families with a massive top floor room for kids. The photos of the interior definitely do not do it justice. The pool is brilliant and the beach is a 5 minutes walk. It's 1-1.5 hours from Rhodes airport but if you want away from the tourist crowds, which we did then its ideal. There are a few things to note; The front of the villa and so the pool is on the main road that circles Rhodes. It is not continuous traffic but it can get noisy. The host was quick to get back to us and did everything he could to make our holiday special including providing food for us as we were arriving late. There is a lovely local village (Gennadi) with a great bakery and a supermarket a five minute drive away. There are also a few bars and places to eat. Venture a bit further for a water park!
Thank you Andrew for your good words.
Idyllic and relaxing, with only a few hitches along the way
It was so easy to book this villa and make the payments as Dimitris was really helpful, and also sent over all the information for our arrival well in advance, which was a load off our mind.
Unfortunately, the property manager Kate hadn't checked the bookings and as we booked fairly late she hadn't noticed that we were coming to stay. On arrival at the villa we had to call her as it hadn't been cleaned since the last guests vacated. She sent two cleaners and arrived herself within and within three or four hours the house was ready for us - so the mistake was sorted out, but after a long flight and a very early start it wasn't the most ideal start to our holiday.
The house is as pictured if not even nicer, the bedrooms are in much calmer tones than they appear in the photos and they're very comfortable. The plumbing needs a look at as we had a few loos that were a bit dodgy - either the flush was constantly running or sometimes the flush didn't work at all.
The best thing about the house is all the different seating areas - you can avoid the strong winds, or hide from the sun, or bathe in it - whatever you wish, I'm not even sure we managed to use all of them!
It's a pity there were no tools for the bbq, we used it and made do with kitchen tongs but it would have been much easier if there were just some simple tongs etc.
Also there was no net to clean the pool, and no one came to clean it so it was a bit of a chore trying to pick out big dead insects while swimming around. Also with such a beautiful big pool, it just makes sense to have a pool cleaning net.
The welcome basket was so appreciated with coffee and tea and bread etc. but when we arrived and asked how to walk down to the beach, no one told us so it took a lot of figuring out.
Also, we only discover on our very last morning that there are lots of inflatables in the cupboard under the stairs! Shame! A little note/booklet explaining the house would be ideal.
The beach itself is fairly rugged, but the sea is very clean. Mojito and Ammos are both lovely beaches, but head up to Glystra for the best beach in the area.
Platanos was our favourite restaurant (in Lahania) and then the Light house in Kiotari and Philosophia in Peskos. It's fun to drive to little towns like Kattavia or Appolakkia as people are so friendly. Definitely need a car as there's nothing in walking distance, easy car parking space and the gate makes everything feel secure.
Thank you very much for this sincere and objective criticism. I will take your words into consideration so as to improve the stay in the Villa as much as possible.
It was very kind of you to make this beautiful and flattering comments about the house. I hope you enojyed your stay despite the difficulties and the obstacles.
We're waiting for you again any other time.
Das Ferienhaus ist wunderschön und toll eingerichtet. Das einziges kleine Manko ist die direkt vor dem Grundstück verlaufende Strasse, die manchmal sehr laut sein kann - aber bei leckerem Wein von der Insel und dem Blick auf Sonnenuntergang und Meer überhört man das bald. Der Strand (Kieselstrand - Badeschuhe sind sinnvoll!) ist fußläufig in 3 Minuten erreichbar und Lachania, ein wunderbar typisches Örtchen im Landesinneren mit Tavernen und einem regionalen Supermarkt per Auto in 5 Minuten erreichbar. Rundum also alles sehr schön...
The house is literally next to the sea and it takes only 5 min to walk down to the nearest beach. This beach is unspoilt and half sand half pebble. The water is crystal clear and it is one of the cleanest beaches on Rhodes. Here you are undisturbed to enjoy your holiday in privacy.
Rhodes airport (Diagoras) is 65km from Lahania. You can take a taxi, bus or rent a car at the airport. A car hire is recommended especially if you want to explore the island.
The villa is 2km from the picturesque Lahania village, 6km from Gennadi, 15km from Prassonisi and about 25km from Lindos.
