Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a great time on Rhodes! The house is marvelous and also the location. There were hardly any tourists…. just flowers, empty beaches, beautiful nature, nice restaurants and nice people. We had a warm welcome of Frank and Michael who gave us also great information about the island. We like to come every year if possible J.

Perfect destination for a taste of Rhodes

  • 5 of 5
we've just returned from a wonderful week at this charming villa in the quiet and beautiful village of Lachania in the south of Rhodes. The villa is constructed in the traditional style but with all the mod cons we wanted to make our stay a truly memorable experience. I loved the fact that we were in amongst the village with its traditional (and colourful) tavernas - would thoroughly recommend Platanos situated in a leafy square next to the church serving great local fresh food. We were met on our first day by Frank and Michael who were very attentive to make sure we were ok in the house but I have to say that everything was as expected and just what we needed to escape the awful weather back home.
I can thoroughly recommend this villa for a next Greek holiday, some friends of ours have already booked it.

Owner's Response: We're very pleased that Tessa and Malcolm enjoyed the villa so much as they have touched on all of the features that attracted us to the area when we bought and subsequently improved the property. The villa also benefits from a balcony outside the master bedroom to enjoy the sea view, the sunsets and the breathtaking stars you can only sea in an area unpolluted by light. We are sure that all of our other guests will find aspects of the villa that will enchant them.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at the villa and did not want to leave when our week was over.

The villa is trully beautiful; combines all the conveniences of a modern building with a traditional Greek feel, set in a genuine Greek village which has not been blighted by over-tourism.

Highlights of the villa include waking up with sea views from the master bed, the gorgeous pool and the choice of spots to admire the sun setting each evening.

We don't quite agree with the previous review; we didn't find the oven too tricky to master and didn't use the table inside simply because the weather/evenings were too good to miss and didn't use the umbrella that had been provided because there is a lovely pergola that provided shade. There were a couple of old farm vehicles left in the village but apart from that there were only amazing tavernas and a (presumably) family-run shop, selling superb vegetables and other essentials, no scrapyards! And the sockets are European...

Couldn't be more complimentary about our stay and wouldn't hesitate in visiting again nor recommending the villa to all. Thanks to owners/managers/whoever for such a fuss free and relaxing holiday.

Problematic...

  • 1 of 5
A week before arrival we're told the property manager had changed out (fired?) to three names offered: the sister of the owner and the two men (first names only) all local to the area. This should have sent up a red flare.

We arrived and the property was not ready for guests:

*No umbrella,
*the BBQ had rotted to complete uselessness,
*the oven wouldn't work without belabored study of the users manual to do a reset which required the equivalent of a non-intuitive CTRL-ALT-DEL (the property managers had no clue as to its operation),
*the appliances were configured for a UK plug,
*the espresso machine cap was broken or loose and therefore couldn't produce a head of steam. The plastic bodum press had a broken handle.
*no wine glasses,
*not enough blankets and no heating (the fireplace was utterly useless for heating and there was no firewood until we asked for it), and
*no table indoors, we moved the broken marble table from the upper balcony downstairs for that purpose but the owner's sister claimed we had broken it and refused to return our damage deposit

The gentlemen who were engaged to oversee the property were unprepared for these issues and indeed noted they were told that all they had to do was turn over the keys. They resolved the umbrella, wine glass and BBQ issues by purchasing replacements but the umbrella was designed for a weighted base which they did/could not get; consequently it kept blowing over in the high winds that the area is known for. They loaned us a portable electric heater from their place but the upper bedroom was cold still since we used the heater for our children at night. We saw the property managers far too often as they endeavored to correct issues they were unprepared for. They in fact suggested we should have asked for a discount from the owner given these problems.

The property itself overlooks a rusty car dump. The village itself is run down.

The most bemusing part of the experience was being told several weeks after our stay that the damage deposit was not being returned. The owner's sister even suggested we should have reported the table broken on arrival (!?!).
