A very comfortable and private villa we would like to return to
The villa is beautifully laid out, open plan with a feeling of space. It has a homey and welcome atmosphere and the surrounding garden was a delight and afforded maximum privacy.
The kitchen was very well equipped and the whole property is maintained to a high standard with great attention to detail.
The double bedroom had a large balcony where you could watch the sunrise, and at night see the whole of the bay lit up. The sitting room was comfortable with a good sized television but not many English speaking channels which didn't matter as we listened to music and watched videos.
The lounge led out to a terrace with a large table where we had all our meals, so we were able to use the dining room table for our 1000 piece jigsaw which we enjoyed when it was too hot to sit outside, or in the evenings.
The pool was lovely and warm and well maintained and plenty of sun loungers. We used the bbq on several occasions and cooked meat from the well stocked supermarket in the village.
The old village was about 5 minutes walk from the villa and every morning before breakfast we went to the family run bakers and bought all sorts of local delicacies before going on to the friendly green grocer where we discussed all manner of topics. Also in the village was Mammas,a well established family restaurant where you ate outside and enjoyed traditional greek food.
There were more restaurants on the beach, a 20 minute walk from the villa where our favourite was Antonios. We found we could do circular walks from the villa taking us through the village and up into the hills behind us, through olive groves and with wonderful views of the sea. We walked for an hour or so which was fine for us as our health isn't 100%, but you could make them longer.
We had a car which is great for exploring off the beaten track and found charming monasteries at every turn and some delightful villages where you could always find a nice and inexpensive place to eat. We went to Rhodes on a Sunday which worked out well as we found parking by the docks was free and a stones throw from the old city.
We would have done more car trips but it was hard to tear ourselves away from the villa.
To summarise, the villa offered everything we wanted, we had a great 2 weeks with wall to wall sunshine and plenty of relaxation time to read books and generally chill out. We came home refreshed and ready to face the world again. We hope to visit again next year.
Thank you Frank and Yvonne

Peaceful and relaxing
Frank and Yvonne,
We really loved the villa, it had everything we needed. The most important things, for us anyway, was the pool and the lovely garden. Being in walking distance of the village, everyone very friendly, and the beach. It's a holiday morning ritual to walk down to a local bakery and buy fresh bread and croissants for breakfast and the bakery was wonderful. We didn't even need to hire a car as the bus service was so good. Thank you to you both for all the help and advice prior to and during our holiday. Also thanks to Georgio and Carla as we got to meet them on the day of our departure We would highly recommend the villa.
Fabulous modern relaxing spacious
Lovely villa in a lovely little village , we had a fabulous relaxing time we will definitely be booking again can't express how impressed we were
Thank you very much for your review!
It certainly was a pleasure to have you as our guest and we look forward to welcome you again in the future.
Yvonne and Frank
Going back next year
The Villa Dolphin is situated on the edge of the small town of Gennadi towards the south of the island. It is part of a development of four adjacent villas but sits on the south side, enjoying a good open view with the sea in the distance without being significantly overlooked.
It is only a short walk into Gennadi which has a small supermarket, a bakery and a few restaurants and bars. Everyone is friendly and many people speak English. The beach is only a short distance away. When we were there in April the season hadn’t really started but it didn’t look heavily touristed - if you want more tourism it is only a short drive to the north where you can also find supermarkets with a wider choice. Although Gennadi is in the south, Rhodes is small enough to be able to visit anywhere easily on a day trip.
The facilities of the villa are accurately described. The interior is very well equipped, spotlessly clean and an ideal place to stay, even out of season when the heating is useful, should you need it. Outside you can sit in the shade or soak up the sun in the lovely garden, then cool off with a dip in the pool.
The owners Frank and Yvonne are a pleasure to deal with: they are very helpful if you require advice about anything.
Possibly the strongest recommendation we can make is to say that we have just booked to return next year. Even though we rarely go back to places we have stayed in, this is an exception.
We are happy that you have enjoyed your stay in our villa so much, thank you very much for your kind words.
It will be a pleasure to welcome you back in 2017!
A great property in a very quite location for total relaxation.
We had a week's stay at Villa Dolphin. The villa is situated in very quite location but this suited us. The villa was beautifully presented both in its cleanliness and its decoration. Both inside the Villa and outside are of a very high standard. The gardens are perfectly kept which added to the stay. The pool was spotlessly clean and very welcome in the high temperatures. Our favourite part of the Villa was the great BBQ area. From start to finish this has been a great holiday and the owners Frank & Yvonne were great to deal with which also helped make the holiday go without any problems. In Gennadi village there are a couple of restaurants serving very good and reasonably priced food especially Mama's Kitchen. And if you want to let your hair down and party until the early hours of the morning then, The Lab2 in the village is a great cocktail bar owned by brothers Nikos & Andrianos who certainly know how to make a night go with a bang. We hope to visit Villa Dolphin again one day and will certainly be recommending it to our friends.
Thank you very much for your review and your kind words!
We are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay in Villa Dolphin so much.
We do try to make everyone feel comfortable and at home, and we are so glad that we have succeeded in these aspects with you. Also the people who take care of the house, garden and pool will be happy to know that their efforts don't go unnoticed.
We are looking forward to welcome you again, and the same goes for your friends!
Very quiet very clean lovely garden. Inside well equipped.
This property is in a lovely spot with views of the sea. When you arrive at the gates and open them you are greeted with a very lovely garden. This makes you not overlooked. Inside the villa is equipped very well and to have an ice machine was lovely. The pool was very nice if you have small children there is a glass screen and gate to stop them getting in the pool.
There are shutters around the windows and balcony doors with mosquito nets.There are a number of restaurants close by so no need to drive to get something to eat. They all sell lovely food and are very friendly. There is a supermarket within walking distance and a bakers for fresh bread etc. There is a short walk to the beach about 10-15 mins down there you will find some more restaurants. There is also a local bus service we went to Lindos had a few drinks in the town and caught a cab home. Cost of the bus for 4 was 10eu and cab was 28eu quite a way so not bad.
We would stay in this villa again in the future. We was not disappointed by anything out of the 4 villas that are all the same by far the best for position and the garden is lovely and lit up at night.
Thank you very much for your kind words.
We are happy that you enjoyed our villa so much and we hope to welcome you again in the future!
