    Property was nice, clean & well equipped. Friendly & flexible host. Great value for money! Good to have car rented for full week to reach popular sandy beaches (e.g Tsampika), restaurants & supermarkets easily in the area. It also solve airport transfer query if you choose pick up & drop off at Airport.

    Lack of cooking bowls.

    The garden is marvellous, Stefanos responded quickly, he was very helpful, friendly, informative and flexible :-) There is a nearby supermarket and many wonderful beaches. These are accessible by car within 10-15 minutes.

    We loved everything..nice, cosy and clean- cleaned 2 a week, very friendly host. Great value for money

    Quite a lot of walking to the beach and town, especially as it was so hot. It would be good to hire a moped to get around.

    The location of the property is in a very calm and pleasant, where you can totally relax. Stefanos was helpful and there if you needed anything.

    Ok. But don't rent a scooter from the rental suggested from the owner.

    Owner in the beginning offered transfer service to us from the Airport but couple of days before our arrival told us he cannot anymore, because in that time he had to be in the propriety for other guests. So make double check if he offer a transfer or book directly online (and save some money). Seen the location of the apartments is quite isolated (to use an euphemism) is mandatory to rent a car or a scooter. We decided to rent a scooter from the company suggested to us from the owner of the apartment. The scooter was old and constantly losing oil (and every 3 days needed to come back to their office to make a service). About the price of rental of course was overpriced to cover commissions paid from the rental to our landlord. But those were minor problems, the biggest problem was that the man inside the scooter rental don't understand english (or pretend to do not understand) and we risked to lose our flight because of this. To fix the problems caused to the ignorance of the manager of the rental we had to pay a taxi 50 euro, 20 euro more then the price that the man in the rental told us. So dear Stefanos, choose better the companies with whom you cooperate, because this review could have been much more positive if we haven't been scammed from your rental service.

    The owner is formally kind. The apartment is clean, and every two times for week they clean it again. The owner let us doing the late checkout.

    Location is really nice - there is 2 beaches within 3 km, one (Afantou beach) is about 200-300m. You can rent a bicycle or a scooter from the owner for a reduced price. Also Afantou village is just 200 m away, there is a good selection of good and relatively cheap restaurants, and 2 different supermarkets. Mr. Stefanos is a great host really, was able to help me with a derections, bus stops, etc

    • Family with older children

    We booked the 2 bedroom self catered apartment thinking ( as is usually the case) we would have 2 separate bedrooms and a different living /eating space. This wasn't the case. In one bedroom was a tiny kitchen area where the only practical thing to make was a sandwich. Then squashed in the corner if the other room was a very small table and chairs and TV . Only clothes storage/ mirror , air conditioning etc in one room too . Very odd set up and only suitable for a very close family ! More specific photos and description are needed on the website .

    The owner is lovely and the apartment block is very clean and quiet.

    Located too far from beaches (1.2 km), taverns (1,5 - 2 km), supermarket (1,5 - 2 km by the highway road), shops (2 km, in Afantu town). No public or commercial transportation to Afandu. You need a car to stay here, or you will simply stay hungry.

    The villa itself is very nice and quiet with a big olive grove around it. A helpful and attentive hotel owner.

    A bit off the beaten track, no where close at hand to get something to eat the following morning after a late arrival. You need to be happy to walk for at least 15 to 20 mins or hire a vehicle.

    Very clean,comfortable property. Stefanos the owner is very helpful,friendly and kind. Excellent value for money. Great base for seeing the island.

    The photos don't do this hotel justice. We thought it was a private Villa when we arrived - such a nice surprise!! The owner was genuinely welcoming and helpful regarding any help we required planning our stay in Rhodes. Room was fantasic - absolutley everything newly refurbished. Fabulous beach nearby - only 5 minutes away. Good location - only took us 25 minutes by car to Lindos or Rhodes Old Town. We are returning in September with our family to stay here - can't wait!!!
