Villa Sophie is a great place to spend a whole season on Rhodes Island. We had everything we needed and as the Villa is at such a superb place we were mostly spoiled with deep quiet, gorgeous views, a safe and comfy house to feel good with washing machine and dishwasher, a great pool exactly the right size to be able to swimm and have fun and a very helpfull and friendly caretaker couple (thank you Judith and Allan) We had the greatest and most peacefull 6 moth of our live in Villa Sophie and we are very gratefull that Joy and Costas rent it to us for a whole season. Thank you.
We loved the flowers around the pool aerea with the butterflies, the good smells of the Rosmarine bushes that spoiled our noses, the wildness of the unspoiled countryside around, the nights full of stars, the possibility to leave the seating aerea and jump or carefully go into the refreshing pool. When it got too hot we could withdraw into the house with airconditioning. Just great. Also the waterquality in Villa Sophie is excellent for Rhodes.
An ideal compact holiday home in a lovely quiet location. We had villa Phoebe (the end property) so had unrestricted views of the bay. Great to meet Costas who was on the island at the time (hi Sweetie). Both Joy and Costas were superb in helping us have a great holiday in a beautiful location. Thank you both.
Villa Nicole was situated off the main road. It had an elevated outlook and offered views and privacy. The 3 villas are sited next to each other but not overlooked. We had all day sunshine and the private pool was fab even for me a non-swimmer who sat on the pool steps and only braved the 1mtr end. There had been a freak storm the previous week that caused damage to the server and WiFi was not available. Joy arranged for a 4G mobile stick to be delivered so WiFi was available.
Gennadi Village was a short distance away with a great bakery and well stocked supermarket. However,we were glad we took the advise to rent a car. Sadly, we bad to vacate earlier than planned due to family illness buy we intend to go back to enjoy a lenghtier stay.
We want to say a big thank you to Joy and Kostas for allowing us to return for a second time to their wonderful Villa Phoebe. We had a wonderful two weeks waking up to blue skies every morning! The Villa is in an amazing position overlooking the coastline up in a secluded spot away from busy tourist areas (though hardly busy at this time of year). Joy's recommendations for restaurants are exactly what my husband and I enjoy especially Platanos at Vati a small traditional Greek taverna. Joy also recommended swimming in the sea which we did and at this time of year the sea was warmer than the pool!! The sea is beautifully clear.
We walked into the village and down to the sea on a few occasions a pleasant walk to purchase provisions and stop for a coffee or breakfast.
We would thoroughly recommend Villa Phoebe for peace and quiet, relaxation, and amazing views.
We spent the majority of our time in the well equipped outside space, sunbathing and reading!
We saw the goats passing the Villa on a couple of occasions and one evening whilst out saw a Rhoadian stag, an amazing beast!
Thank you again for a wonderful break and we hope to visit again next year!
Villa Sophie is one of three adjacent villas; we stayed in Villa Phoebe. The apartment was well equipped (including dishwasher and washing machine) and comfortable. However, it was the outside space that totally sold us on this apartment. With an incredibly private terrace, out-door dining area, private pool and bbq it was absolutely perfect. Bathing in the sun by the pool, your view of the sea and the horizon extends for miles. It is blissful. The village go Gennadi itself had a great range of amenities, and there are nearby supermarkets, butchers, bakers etc. Easy access to the beach. You will need a car; it is an easy 60-minute drive from the airport (and then just a few hundred yards up a track from the main road). Communication with the owner was straightforward - Joy was incredibly helpful.
