Village house, open plan living with all mod cons
Original village stone houses, restored with ECO principles, set in a quiet, traditional corner of the village.
Just 5 minutes drive from the fabulous sandy beach of Agathi, and the pretty harbour of Haraki.
It is an active traditional agricultural village, surrounded by orange, and olive groves which keep the locals busy all year around.
A small village with little narrow streets, with an authentic traditional pace of life. A place where the men of the village sit out in the evenings in the local cafes, and the women sit together in the streets with the children.
Many here speak some English after time spent working in America, and you will find them curious and friendly.
A 15 minute drive finds you in the beautiful village of Lindos, or 10 minutes in the other direction, in the heart of Rhodes 2nd town Archangelos.

About Clare Lee
Hi, I am Clare , British, and the owner and renovator of these two houses. I lived permanently in Rhodes from 2003-2013 so that I could follow my dream to renovate traditional houses with due care to the environment, using traditional methods of building. As an Interior designer, you will find the houses are practical, well detailed, and contain everything you need. Apart from being a Mum, and looking after the running of the houses, I am also a Yoga teacher. We have been renting these houses since 2008, and people have been most enthusiastic about their experience. We trust you will be too.
Clare Lee purchased this House in 2005
Why Clare Lee chose South Aegean
I bought the houses in Malona as a stepping stone for us to the South of the island as we live near town generally. We love to drive to all the corners of the island, so the house is perfectly situated for this. An easy drive to join friends in Lindos, or to Kiotari for the fresh summer breezes, over to Monolithos for wild views and beaches, or for windsurfing madness down on Prassonisi beach at the far point of the island. Equally we love to sit in Haraki where we never fail to feel like we have arrived on a tiny Greek island somewhere. We enjoy the slow pace of the village, and find we are able to relax when we arrive there, riding the bikes and letting the children be free without a crowd in sight.
What makes this House unique
Visitors are most thrilled here about the style of the houses the kitchen facilities, and the fact that they are not part of the touristic trail.

This was a surprise visit to catch the end of summer in Rhodes. We found the island peaceful, empty of tourists and very relaxed. The locals were very friendly and Regina who looked out for us in the house was helpful and available when we needed her.
We found the house as it was described by Clare and the atmosphere of the house even better than we could have imagined It was a really lovely experience to be in a house like this and one we will not forget. All the details to get us to the house were easy to follow and even though this house is amongst the small village streets it was completely peaceful and wonderfully calming.
We had a great end of season visit, cold at night warm by day and swimming too, we would definitely recommend this house for people who want a real Greek experience.
Thank you 🙏 so pleased you had a good stay, we love this time of year too for the bright blue skies and fresh feel to the island.
What a wonderful surprise! Clare, the owner /designer extraordinaire ... Made such a beautiful place to stay...open light airy, complete with private roof deck. although one needs a car to stay in Malona as it is approximately 10 mins from your choice of many beaches, 15 from Lindos, a good 35 mins from Rhoades..with a car it is a wonderful way to see the whole island and have a fairly centrally located home base in a lost in time weenie old Greek
Village, at least 4 small markets and the incredible fresh produce truck swings through the village pretty much every other day(do not miss him!! Even if you are choosing to eat out all meals...his fruit bar none is some of the most delicious I have ever eaten...July/August stone fruits...incomparable peaches, nectarines, plums...outstanding. Clare is a lovely host, full of great ideas for things to do...all of which can em
Be found in the extensive homemade welcome book. Crisp cotton sheets, towels, fully equipt kitchen, games, tv, music, wifi, books...Clare though of most everything...even a washer and plenty of clothes lines on the roof to quickly dry...make sure to stop by Stephanos in town for a lovely home cooked meal by his wife or share a leisurely glass of Ozso with him to learn all about the locals and local goings on...the best spanakopita comes from the bakery just a few doors down and closer to the entrance of Malona...safe, tidy, charming...a truly wonderful slice of Greek life and staying at with of Clare's fantastic rentals with not disappoint ! PS Clare is open to selling eo
It her special place should you want to own your own piece of Greek Paradise(130K for the little one and 160K for the big one ) oh PS if you go to Haraki...don't miss the Malona Salad or the roasted eggplant with Greek yogurt ...outrageous
The place to be
Quiet location and great atmosphere. Very warmly decorated house. It lacks nothing.
Strategic good location if you want to explore the island by car.
Yes exactly, a great location for easily exploring the commercial north, the wild south, the long sandy beaches of the East, and the castles in the west with glorious views and sunsets, all within a 5 to 45 minute drive.
We aim to make the house welcoming and with everything you could possibly want, it's always good to hear that's how it feels.
Spent 5 days here and it was great,the kids loved it, a really unusual property in a traditional village. The owner is lovely and couldn't have made us more welcome.
Will definitely be going back . Thanks Clare.
So pleased you enjoyed yourself so much, we and the kids thoroughly enjoyed our time with you too. The whole pottering about between the 2 houses was great fun, I often imagine it is a perfect 2 -3 family holiday with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind Greetings Clare & Ioannis
Die Einrichtung ist ausgesprochen geschmackvoll und berücksichtigt die Traditionalität von Rhodos auf sensible und bezaubernde Art und Weise. Gleichzeit sind alle modernen Ansprüche an Komfort befriedet: Kühlschrank (der keinen Lärm verursacht), schicker Gasherd, Klimaanlage. Welch herrliches Leben: komfortable Moderne im 16.Jahrhundert!! Die Dachterasse ist eine Oase und viel schöner als auf dem Bild! Die versorgende gute Fee, die das Haus vor Ort betreut, war unser lebendiger Schutzengel. Wir waren mit zwei Kindern hier, die sich mit dem Haus schnell anfreundeten und sich sehr glücklich hier fühlten, nicht zuletzt durch die liebevolle Einrichtung!! Vielen Dank für diese herrliche Zeit - ein wunderbarer Glücksgriff !!

The decoration is very tasteful and takes into account the traditionality of Rhodes in a sensitive and charming way. At the same time, all modern comforts are satisfied: refrigerator (which does not cause any noise), stylish gas stove, air conditioning. What a wonderful life: comfortable modernity in the 16th century !! The roof terrace is an oasis and much nicer than on the picture! The caring good fairy who takes care of the house on site was our living guard gel. We were with two children here, who quickly became friendly with the house and felt very happy here, not least by the loving decor !!
Thank you for this wonderful time - a wonderful luck!
My response: Thank you so much for all your kind messages, it has been a delight to have you stay, and I am always thrilled when visitors enjoy our space as much as we do 🌻
We hope to be of help again in the future.....Clare
Maison typique bien équipée ,décorée avec beaucoup goût
Peut-être penser à inclure le coût de la climatisation dans le montant de la location
Golf: The islands golf course is approx 15 mins in down the road in the direction of town, in Afandou. I am to understand it is not a great quality course, but fabulously located on the edge of the beach.
