Great villa in a fabulous location

  • 4 of 5

This is a really spacious and well equipped villa, in a wonderful location near to the best beach we have been to in years. Julie was very helpful, giving us recommendations for car hire and lots of very useful information about places to visit and eat. The car hire firm was Rodos cars and everything was extremely efficient and easy to arrange/find at the airport. The villa was easy to find, too, with very clear directions and spotlessly clean when we arrived. Possibly the best aspect for us was the huge outdoor area and large pool, where we set up camp during the day and evening, as it is well lit and has comfy sun beds during the day and comfy sofas on a night. It is an easy drive/taxi to Lindos, Pefkos and Lardos and we loved all three, eating out virtually every night. In particular we had very nice meals in Valentina's place in Lardos and Stefano's fish restaurant right opposite the beach in Kiotari. Also the beach at Glystra was very much our favourite - it is a small crescent, very safe as it shelves slowly and there are a little cafe and loos. We had a really lovely stay in Glystra Villa and would definitely recommend it and hope to return.

Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We've booked a few villas through Owners Direct but this one was by far the best! We hadn't visited Rhodes before and so didn't know the area. When I phoned Julie the owner she was incredibly helpful and gave me lots of information about places to visit and told me about Glystra beach (a beautiful, uncrowded beach) which was a few minutes walk from the villa. When the eight of us arrived we were very happy - the villa was spacious, light and airy and very well maintained. The pool was cleaned every day and the friendly management company were on hand to answer any questions. Lardos and Lindos are very close by and there is a very handy bus stop within metres of the villa to take you there. The taxi drivers were also incredibly helpful and even went to pick up some charcoal for us one afternoon when we'd run out! A great place for a quieter family holiday, but close enough to all the amenities, even if you don't hire a car.

Lovely Villa, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in this fantastic villa. It was in a great location, with one of the best beaches we found on the Island only a five minute walk away. The villa was exceptionally well kitted out and we found everything we needed. There were four adults and four kids and the kids had lots of fun all sleeping in the same room in the basement. The outdoor area and the swimming pool were lovely. There is a handy bus stop 5 mins walk away which will take you into Lindos and Lardos. There are some great restaurants in Lardos -Valentinas and Savvas being our favourites and really reasonably priced as well. We hired a car for a couple of days which we hadn't pre-booked and we got this from the Hotel down the road. If you have children over 6yrs old, a visit to the waterpark is well worth it. The couple who looked after the Villa were really friendly and helpful.

Beautiful Spacious Villa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Glystra villa which has to be one of the best villas that we have stayed in. The villa is very spacious, well equipped and furnished to a high standard and will sleep 12 comfortably. The pool is big and has a lovely seating area, in addition most of the bedrooms have their own balconies so even if 12 were staying in the villa there are plenty of places to find some peace and quiet if needed. The lower ground floor has a TV/ games room complete with table football which was a big hit with our young son especially during the hottest part of the day as it was always cool down there.

The location of the villa is ideal with Lindos and Pefkos an easy drive away. The village of Lardos is also close by and is more of a traditional Greek village with a number of good inexpensive tavernas. You do need a car but the roads are good and everywhere is well signposted in English as well as Greek.

The nearest beach is a ten minute stroll away and is ideal for children as it is sandy and you can walk out into the sea for some distance before it gets deep. The beach does not get crowded and it has a lovely café that provides cheap lunches and a good selection of cold beers when required.

We had a wonderful holiday on Rhodes and have no hesitation in recommending Glystra Villa to anyone looking for superior accommodation in an excellent location.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location for touring the island, set back from the main road with good access to villages Lindos, Lardos and to the south Presonisi.

Handy for Carrefour Express just a few mins drive away or local shop a few mins walk (tip: tell shopkeeper if there is something you want and he will stock it for you).

One of the nicest villas we have stayed at, clean, nicely furnished & decorated, my wife thought the gold paint highlighting on the black gates was very tastefully done and I found it useful for identifying the villa when giving directions :)

Although we there was only 8 of us (3 couples plus 2 teenagers), the villa is plenty big enough for a large group of 10 with ease and maybe few more if you include the lower ground lounge.

Never felt crowded as plenty of options for sitting together at pool or under the pergola and in own space around grounds.

The management company greeter, who we understand have recently taken over responsibility, was very welcoming and informative.

We found the nearby Glystra beach a delighful unspoilt family-safe bay with a no frills beach cafe catering for all tastes and very reasonable pricewise unlike some other beaches we visited.

Feeling adventurous we booked a full day tour by quad bike (take lots of sunscreen and extra water) which was a wonderful family day out sight seeing and swimming at a secluded cove.

A memorable holiday - definitely recommended !

Sláinte :)

Very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

Very enjoyable stay had by all. It is ideal for relaxing, swimming, reading books and enjoying some good local Greek wine on the terrace while taking in the beautiful views.

It is in a quiet area of island, 10 mins walk from a lovely sheltered cove with a beach cafe and free wifi also handy for restaurants in Lardos and pubs & clubs in Lindos.

Nicely thought out practical, clean and spacious accomodation of good standard however some of us felt the mattresses on the single beds were a little firmer than we were used to but still quite comfortable.

Weather was beautiful but very hot so appreciated the aircon which is included at no extra charge :) Will be back next year !
