2 Bedroom House, With Another Sleeps 3 In Traditional Hand Carved Beds
Gremos house EOT LICENSE NR.: DOD 0028. ISSUED BY THE GREEK TOURIST OFFICE.
Gremos house (gremos means cliff and is the name of the area that the house is located on) is the cutest ‘little house’ and is very colourful and playful. It stands on an excellent spot at the edge of the village on a location where no cars pass by so your children can play safely outside. Directly opposite the house is a garden with a swimming pool and bbq area. this is a great place for a family to have a safe and relaxed holiday as the house is in a quiet location with no passing traffic. The house is, just like most of our houses, an old stone built house, made middle nineteenth century. When we found it, it was abandoned and In a bad shape, but with all the love that we have for houses we renovated this lovely house and made it into the gorgeous place that it has become now. The house has a central courtyard from where you can access then bathroom, Kitchen, bedroom and living room. The living room is big, and has the typical kamara (the big arch), the chochlakia (the small pebbled mosaic pattern on the floor) and the pataras (the high raised wooden carved platforms with beds/mattress that are on either sides of the arch, and that each has a separate stairs leading to it). The colours are soft and bring an atmosphere of peace over the ones using it. The chochlakia on the floor provide an excellent way of pressure point acupuncture, and are highly recommended by all kinds of medical advisors. We have built a roof light in this house for optimum happiness, and there is a sitting corner as well as a dining area.
The bedrooms are above one another and the top bedroom is reached through a narrow stairs. The top bedroom has a double bed, and is really very cosy and romantic. This bedroom should not be used by elderly, infirm or disabled people. The bedroom down has a bunkbed (one single bed on top of the other with a stairs attached to it), so this room sleeps 2, but only on top of each other.
The kitchen has all that one needs, and the washing machine is placed in this room. The bathroom has a shower, toilet and sink, and is sufficiently equipped.
The courtyard is small but very sweet looking. There is a stairs in this courtyard that leads to the first veranda with a dining table for outside breakfast, lunch and dining. Then from this veranda, there is a stairs leading to the roof terrace with sunbeds and its spectacular views. This roof terrace has a big lounging area as well, with a pergola over it, so one could sleep here and hang out all day on this spot while enjoying a glass of wine while looking over the valley and the sea.
The area of the gremos is in the old village, a bit on the edge, but again this house is in a Greek neighbourhood as well, but a rather quiet one. The Gremos house is a little gem in the village and the colours make it stand out in comparison to the rest and have made the neighbours loving it and cherishing it, so be sure they will give you a smile and tell you hello when they see you.

About Gudrun Wilsterman
I am Gudrun Wilsterman, living in Greece now for 13 years. I was born and raised in Holland. Travelled the world myself and I love holiday destinations. Now i have a chance to give back what was given to me so many times: hospitality, and service, privacy and atmosphere in my houses. With my ex husband we built and rebuilt all the houses that are on my site, and we decorated all with love and a feeling of great joy to deliver nice feelings and a home away from home.
What makes this House unique
Gremos house: this house is the original house as it was built around 1850. Everything has been kept authentic and original, only we added 2 roof terraces, roof light in the living room, and we will now add green and flowers. There are no direct neighbours, so the house is really relaxed and private. If you look at the floor and the arch in the living room as well as the hand carved beds that are in the living room, you will realise that many hours of craftsman have been put in this house. The floor is made of pebbles, that are hand collected at certain beaches, and then by hand laid in the marvellous mozaic pattern that is typical for the island or at least for the village of Koskinou. a remarkably lovely house that is affordable for lower budgets as well.

ReviewsThis property doesn't have any reviews yet.
the house is located in the old picturesque typical village of Koskinou, which is a village next to Rhodes town, and so 8 km away from the city center. it's a cultural heritage, and typically greek looking, with narrow alleys, and so there's lots of typicalities to see, and stroll on the streets watching the old houses, and museum in the village. just a step outside of the house is a valley with great walks in nature. Just outside of the village, in the next village is a water park, bowling, and water sports centres. Lindos is a 30 minutes drive. Rhodes town and the Old Town of Rhodes, is a 10-15 minutes drive away. The acropolis of Rhodes a 10 minutes drive.
