On the 1st floor is a spacious living room leading out to a shady covered veranda which is perfect for breakfast time or evening meals. The 2nd floor has two further bedrooms and the second bathroom and on the 3rd floor is the roof terrace with superb views of the mountains, Eristos Bay and Megalo Horio, a traditional Greek whitewashed village built into the side of the mountain. Here you will find an excellent restaurant, ouzeri and kafenion; it also has a supermarket which sells everything you could need for your stay. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, e.g. travel arrangements or special rates.
FREE Wireless internet is available in the villa for unlimited internet/email access and is perfect for contacting friends or family by SKYPE or to stream live sporting events. We provide beach towels for your convenience for use around the swimming-pool or to take to the beach which will save you valuable space and weight in your suitcase.
How about spending Christmas on an unspoiled Greek Island with a roaring log fire and a locally reared turkey dinner? Eden Villa is the place at a very reasonable rental rate in a fantastic location. Email us for further details of what we can offer.
Our responsibility to the environment: we are aware of our responsibility to the environment, so here at Eden Villas we ask you conserve the water of the island wherever possible, we also have low energy light bulbs fitted throughout the property with solar lights in the garden and solar panels to heat the villa water tank. The swimming-pool lights and pump are on a timer for maximum efficiency not compromising the cleanliness of the pool which is checked daily by us to ensure the best possible quality swimming water.
We offer current guests 'first option' on the same dates for the following year for a 25% initial deposit. The balance then becomes due 10 weeks before their holiday.

Peace, Comfort and a Great Village
A pool to enjoy, a cool house in hot weather, a view to the sea down the valley and very good restaurant and cafe in the village 5 minutes walk away ( and another gem Filoxenia 20 minutes walk). And in that village enough tourism so that you feel at ease but it has not has not swamped the character or layers of history. The hosts Rob and Annie are very friendly, helpful and at hand. We intend to return.
A Little Piece of Paradise Found
Both my Husband and I have visited many Greek Islands during our "younger" years. Our 16 year old daughter wanted to holiday on a Greek Island and when looking we liked everything written about Tilos for her first Greek experience - no McDonalds, Nightlife, Irish bars with satellite TV and Sky Sports permanently blaring out - you get the idea! Oh, the other criteria from her was "it MUST have a pool".
This immediately narrowed it down to one - Eden Villas, owned, maintained and looked after beautifully by Rob and Annie.
We immediately booked . . . . . . 2 years in advance. It was so worth the wait though. Prior to our arrival Rob and Annie could not have been more helpful providing links to ferry companies and hotels in Rhodes and general information when asked.
We arrived on a very hot sunny day and, as promised, Rob was waiting for us as we came off the ferry from Rhodes. He took us up to Eden Villas, having first driven round showing us useful places such as the ATM (they don't take credit cards, only cash on the Island), local supermarket (which was just superb) and good restaurants.
We were made so welcome on arrival at the villa. It was meticulously presented and had absolutely everything we needed and more. Being so hot, the ceiling fans were very welcome and aided keeping the villa cool. Not a single bug came into the villa either.
My Husband loves a BBQ and Rob very kindly set this up for us to use. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa was kept very clean and both Rob and Annie were attentive but without interrupting our privacy. They were also extremely accommodating and understanding in keeping their dog, Fergie, away during our two week stay, as both my daughter and I are fearful of dogs - this was so appreciated.
The views from the rooftop veranda were simply stunning and the perfect end to each day was drinking a Metaxa and looking up at the stars listening to the Little Owls calling to each other across the valley.
The swimming pool was very well maintained by Rob and loved by us all.
All in all it was one of the best family holidays. Now we are two weeks away from Christmas, we still talk fondly of our holiday at Eden Villas.
We would thoroughly recommend and will definitely return. Rob told us that when you arrive at Tilos you just don't want to leave, and he was so right.
Dear Sharen and family. Thank you so much for your lovely, thoughtful review. We would love to see you again in the future. Have a fantastic summer. Rob & Annie. xxx
Fantastic place to stay
Had a great fortnight in June at this comfortable and clean accommodation. Nicely isolated but with a local shop providing all your needs. A small number of local tavernas provide good food, although have to particularly recommend The Casto. Rob and Annie were great hosts and with them living in their own house close by, were always at hand if needed. Having our own pool was a big bonus, with sun beds and sunshades a plenty. A special mention for Fergie, Rob and Annie's lovable hound. Unless you have a real dislike of dogs you won't fail but fall in love with her. The island's bus provides travel across the island and Rob and Annie also provided us with bicycles so provided another way of seeing the island. Some great local walks, especially up to the ruined castle behind the villa (a steep climb but worth it for the views). Can't recommend the villa enough. A big thanks to Ron and Annie.
Hi Steve, hi Charlie,
Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful review and thanks for being such lovely guests. We sincerely hope to welcome you again in the future. All the best for 2017.
Rob & Annie.
Wonderful villa in a beautiful location !
This is the ultimate Greek get away from it all holiday destination. A detached villa perched on a hillside with a gorgeous clean pool that gazes down the valley to a long virtually deserted sandy beach. The villa is really spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The owners Annie and Rob have a twin villa on site and can't do enough for you to make your stay completely relaxed and trouble free. They speak good Greek and can advise you on every aspect of your holiday including travel arrangements. They will of course pick you up from the port ! Just a few minutes walk from the villa are two lovely authentic family run tavernas and a superb Kafenion serving drinks and small plates of delicious Greek food. On the way to the beach you'll find two more excellent tavernas. There is also a supermarket in the village and a regular bus service. If you enjoy walking, this island is unbeatable. It is the real Greece ! Away from the crowds, great food, amazing weather (and sunsets) and the best people. Book early to avoid being disappointed, we are back in April 17 !!!
Hi there. Thank you for the lovely review. Have a good winter in Blighty. See you next year! :-)
Eden Villas in a beautiful valley location
We have been visiting Tilos since 2002 and knew of Eden Villas before our visit in 2016. Having normally stayed in Livadia we decided to book with Rob & Annie for a change and it is a decision we certainly did not regret.
The villa is well equipped and very comfortable. It was quite cold at night during the first week, with a keen north wind, but the heaters kept the villa warm when we were in at night. We cooked and ate in more often than usual because the kitchen is equipped well enough to do that and we were able to contribute to the BBQ lunch party Rob & Annie organised for a friend's birthday, to which we were invited.
The villa is kept clean and Rob and Annie are both very attentive and sociable hosts. Annie's home made marmalade and olives in herb oil were delicious and we were delighted when the empty jars were immediately replaced with a fresh supply!
Jim really enjoyed the two mountain walks with Rob and Fergie - an opportunity to return to a couple of routes on the Profitis Ilias range after 4 years absence following a serious climbing accident in 2013.
The villa and grounds are a perfect place to chill out after a morning out walking, with a variety of spots to sit out in the sun or under shade. The view from the veranda to the mountain peaks overlooking the Skafi valley is stunning. The villa is also a perfect spot for bird watching, with the bee-eaters providing hours of entertainment.
The swimming pool is an added luxury and is well maintained by Rob.
Overall the villa is a perfect location whether you prefer an active holiday exploring the magnificent Tilos mountains, visiting nearby beaches or just chilling out around the pool and lovely garden.
Hi Jim, hi Catherine. Thanks for the great review. Your walking book "Exploring Tilos" (Jim Osborne) is a wonderful book for the island and has been an inspiration for so many visitors of many nationalities. Keep in touch. firstname.lastname@example.org
Tilos is one of the most southerly Greek Islands situated close to the Turkish coast near Rhodes and Kos in the Dodecanese. Smaller than its more famous neighbours it is still largely unknown and having avoided mass tourism it remains one of the few genuinely unspoiled Greek Islands. Tilos has two villages, Megalo Horio the capital and Livadia the port. Our village is a 2 minute walk from the villa with restaurants and a cafenion but is far enough away for total peace and quiet. There is also a museum which has bones from a dwarf elephant which were found in a nearby cave some years ago. Eden Villa has one of only five swimming-pools on the island and is the only property for rent with a private swimming-pool. It is not overlooked and offers spectacular views of Skafi valley, the surrounding mountains and Eristos Bay to the south which boasts the best beach of many on the island. The mountain behind the villa features a ruined 15th century castle which can be reached on foot in about 45 mins.
Other Activities: Island boat tours with BBQ. Excellent birdwatching. Snorkeling. Fishing. Deep sea fishing. Ancient monastery and many restored chapels. Abundant wild flowers in spring.
