About Steve

Steve worked on the island for many years and knows the island and the Islanders very well. Julia got to know the island through Steve and fell in love with the friendliness of the people and beauty of the island. Steve and Julia decided to buy the villa when the opportunity arose and have never looked back!

Steve purchased this villa in 2010

Why Steve chose Kallithea

The location is close enough to the friendly village of Kalythies, but far enough away to enjoy your own privacy and the spectacular beauty of the surrounding area. The chance of starting with a blank canvas - a new build - and the excitement of seeing what we could make of it and how the villa might develop.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is close to everything: the sea, beaches the countryside, the hills, the towns and villages are all in close proximity to the house. In spring and autumn you can take amazing walks directly from the house through the olive groves into the hills and take in some of the wonderful scenery overlooking some of the towns, the sea and also try to locate some of the 27 varieties of flowers only to be found on the island. Four varieties of orchids have already been seen by one of our guests! Or at any time of year you can just stay at the villa and swim in our private pool or read and relax and enjoy the tranquility of the villa and the surrounding area and the amazing views of the surrounding countryside - the olive trees and the hills - whilst swimming in the pool. With a car you can enjoy this most beautiful Island, sun bathing on the beaches, swimming in the sea, visit Rhodes town, Lindos which are all no more than 30 minutes drive away or visit some of the more remote villages on the island which are uniquely Greek.

Reviews don't lie !

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a superb, relaxing stay at Steve and Julia's villa. The reviews made excellent reading, so we booked our stay.

Our hosts could not have been more helpful..... from the information given prior to traveling , to the reference pack at the villa on where to go, where to eat and information on the villa itself. I can't add to anything that has not already been said in previous reviews!

Thanks Steve andJulia !

Great villa !

a stunning and secluded villa nr Kalithies, Rhodes

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa that lacked for nothing making us feel at home straight away. The pool was fabulous and plenty of area for subathing making it ideal for everyone. Air con' is a must in the hot summer months. Plenty of room inside for the children to spread out. The kitchen was well equipped and set out. This is in a private area, being the end villa and easy parking for the car. It was a great base from which to access all the local beaches, bars, shops and tavernas, whether they be in Kalithies or further afield.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an "away from it all", relaxing holiday, this Villa is the perfect choice. The Villa itself is of a very high standard; The pool is just what you need to cool off after an hour or so in the sun and the BBQ cooks the meat very well ( Meat supplied by the friendly butchers in the village, included Lamb & pork chops; All cuts of steak, including excellent T-bone ; Lots of Chicken, Burgers and sausages - Sausages were always free!). Excellent views of the surrounding countryside and watched the sunset every night - Never managed to make it for the sunrise though! . We would recommend this Villa very highly indeed.

stunning villa with views to die for.

  • 5 of 5

My family and i stayed at Psalidi view villa for a week's holiday in June where we had a fantastic time.

The villa is very well equipped and it's home from home, spotlessly clean with a beautiful contemporary interior while the outside is very private, with an impressive swimming pool, has a lovely seating area with a BBQ, peaceful and a stunning location with views and a sunset to die for.

Nearby is Kalaithea, a quaint local village where we spent many a night at the local tavernas.

We shall definitely be back to this beautiful villa. Can honestly say it is the nicest villa we have stayed at. What a stunning place.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was better than what we expected: clean, bright, well equipped, nicely decorated, comfortable, beautiful bed linen and towels. The quiet location (beautiful surrounding) is so relaxing, we could hardly leave the garden and the pool. Because we arrived very late, the owners arranged a welcome package for us with everything we needed the first day. We felt like 'coming home'.

A wonderful home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our departure we got very good advice about the villa, facilities and amenities.

We absolutely loved the property. It has been designed and decorated as if it were someone's own, proud home. We felt utterly at ease there. The house was very clean - spotless even - and the local support, very good. The house was so impressively equipped - well beyond our expectations. Very easy to find and accessible to many different parts of Rhodes island.

We went to Lazarus's taverna, just a short and interesting walk away. We loved his personality and food. Kalithea's Fish of Greece and the take away pizza place were all first class. Further afield we had a really splendid meal in Afantou's Katholiki. We visited old Kamiros and the archaeological ruins and of course Lindos and Rhodes town. All very charming and interesting places. Overall, we could not fault our stay and would happily return and would recommend it to anyone.

A peaceful and idyllic location overlooking hills and olive groves close to the traditional village of Kalythies with its sprinkling of local bars, tavernas and shops. The fabulous east coast beaches of Tsambika and Kolymbia bay are within easy reach by car and provide a choice of wonderful sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, the beaches all have several snack bars/restaruants to enjoy a leisurely lunch. A 10 minute drive away from the villa is the coast of Afandou where you will find an 18 hole golf course overlooking the sea. A car is highly recommended and will enable you to explore and enjoy this beautiful and friendly island. Taxis and buses are also available from the square in nearby Kalythies. Rhodes town has a mixture of old and new and is 20 minutes drive away. Here you will find the stunning old town which is set within the walls of the 12th Century Castle built by the knights of St John. Within the walls you will find an array of shops, traditional markes and not forgetting restaurants for you to enjoy. Also in Rhodes town is the Mandraki Harbour with its bustling cafes and variety of boats. Lindos is situated on the south of the Island and is overlooked by its famous Acropolis. Lindos is only 30 minutes drive away and is the 'jewel in the crown' of this most beautiful island.
