About John Mansfield

John & Indi were born in the UK and the Fiji Islands respectively. They are ex-teachers who enjoy a sense of adventure. In 2005 they sailed their 43 foot yacht from Croatia to Turkey, eventually settling to yachting life in the Dodecanese and the beautiful, unspoilt island of Kalymnos. They would love to hear from you with any queries or further information that you require. If we are in the islands when you are in residence we would be delighted to give you an experience of yachting around the island as our guests.

John Mansfield purchased this villa in 2014

Why John Mansfield chose Greece

We love the island and particularly the views and way of life on this part of the island. Kalymnos is full of very friendly people who go out of their way to make everyone comfortable. There is nothing better than Greek hospitality and we have taken the islanders to our hearts with many new adopted family members. We bought the villa in order to spend as much time as possible in this beautiful island without being dependent upon the yacht.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Pharos has some of the best views on the whole island and with ample balconies and terraces to make best use of them. The villa has access to some of the best beaches on the island and we adore the sight of the yachts and island ferries making passage below the villa. Nearby there are swimming pools, beaches and the secluded island of Telendos just a short ferry ride across the bay.

Best view on the island, quiet stay, incredible experience

  • 4 of 5

If you like to be just outside of the hustle and bustle of Masouri this place is a good spot. It is walkable to Masouri and very easy with scooter access. The villa is amazing, clean, has everything you need and with the most amazing view overlooking Telendos island. To add, the property manager was very helpful and even picked us up at the ferry port upon arrival, answering questions and giving us great local information. At the time of visit there were some holes in the mosquito nets that required repair and there was no wifi. With repair of the screens and wifi I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Dear Luigi, thank you for your very positive review and for letting us know how much you enjoyed Villa Pharos. We have taken your advice and from next week WiFi will be installed. Sorry it was not available during your week but you obviously found the same solution as us - just find a bar or taverna. Best wishes and hope to see you again very soon. John, Julia, Paul and Judie - the Team Pharos!!!

Fantastic villa in Kalymnos!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Pharos- what a great place! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful villa. We were impressed by it's well kept and beautifully clean condition. Everything functioned well in the villa and even in big wind storms it was a solid haven up on the hillside. The views are tremendous from each of the different terraces and especially from the large window in the master bedroom. It was also convenient, although a bit of a good workout to walk into Myrties and Massouri for coffee or dinner. As climbers, we enjoyed the location close to the action but still far enough away to be quiet and a nice getaway. Paul was a super help with getting familiar with the villa, suggesting restaurants, and on one incidence when we locked ourselves out, he was there within 5 minutes! I would love to keep this gem of a villa a secret for our own vacations but that wouldn't really be fair to all the people who may get a chance to enjoy it!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to John and team for a fantastic stay in Kalymnos. John's villa manager picked us up from airport after our flight was delayed and took us to the property. The villa was beautiful and very well maintained, and was a lovely base for our climbing trip (six of us stayed here - there was a sofa bed and two spare mattresses). I have never woken up to a better view and the property was a lovely place to have evening meals and only a 10 minute walk from the restaurants of Myrties/Massouri. Would stay here again if I returned.

Owner's Response: What a delightful response. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay even though we were worried that 6 of you would stretch the villa to the limits. Hopefully see you again soon.

As good as it gets.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, well maintained and everything works perfectly. The location is great, views amazing and just close enough to masouri. If you are there for climbing the location can't be beat. The beds are comfortable and the a/c works well. Also, Paul was extremely helpful in every way. It would be hard to find a property better than this one.
