“Peace and comfort, right on the beach”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The house is large and comfortable, with everything one could need. It is in a quiet location, conveniently close to the road into Plomari but not so close that you can hear traffic. The beach is right at the end of the garden, and although it's theoretically a public beach, it might as well have been private, though this was in October, when things are quieter. It's a pebble beach, so you'll want sandals that you can wear in the water, but it's idea for children, as it stays shallow for a long way out.

The terrace with sea view was perhaps the very best feature!

As others have mentioned, there are three tavernas in walking distance. This being October, they were closed for the winter, but the kind people at Diamanti opened up just for us on our first evening -- typical Greek hospitality, with a cherry on top!

Note that I've clicked "recommended for people with disabilities" because the house is all on one level, but a wheelchair would have to be carried on to the beach -- you'd only get as far as the end of the garden.

“Relax in the private paradise”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were four renting Melinda for a week. Once we got over the toilet paper not being flushed we settled into a most wonderful holiday. We had an arrangement with a local taxi driver who would pick us up and bring us back so it was so easy to get around. The short walk to the taverns for authentic Greek food was enjoyable, just a hundred meters down the beach to the right of the house . Maria would also deliver our order to us when we asked.
Using reef shoes to go into the water is a good idea as the rocks are very smooth and slippery. The walk down the drive way to the house is steep if you walk down.
We loved the location of this quiet retreat.
Thanks

“Idyllic comfort and peace”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our group of 6 friends found this lovely house perfect for relaxing. It was comfortable and spacious, well equipped with lovely spots around the house and garden to loll, read, chat, eat lazy breakfasts. Having the beach so close with gentle water safe for swimming and canoeing was wonderful. We were glad we had beach shoes for the pebbly beach. We ambled up the beach to sample the tavernas (3) and enjoyed wholesome fresh food. It was good we had hire cars, and when we go back we might explore more but for this holiday we just let the days drift by in tranquility and peace. Highly recommended.

“Greek Sunshine, Hospitality and Tranquility”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Melinda Holiday House is the perfect getaway if you're looking for some chill out time.
There were 6 of us staying in this lovely spacious house which is very well appointed and equipped. The owners, Evi and Stratos were wonderful caring and attentive hosts looking after our every need.

We also virtually had the beach to ourselves which is totally amazing in August! N.B.You need beach shoes for the pebble beach but otherwise a delight for swimming.

Just a 10 minute walk along the beach you will find a lovely Taverna - for an unpretentious and authentic Greek experience and the food is excellent.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday house and hope to return again before too long.

“Beautiful place and great hosts”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Melinda House is a charming holiday villa and is ideal for families or couples. The villa (located about 1 hour 20 minutes drive from Mytiline Airport) is very well appointed and beautifully situated with direct access to a beach at the bottom of the garden. Although the beach is not sandy the water is crystal clear and safe for children. Efi and Stratios are perfect hosts, welcoming and informative (Stratios set up a visit by boat for us to the Panagia Kryfti Chapel with its hot spring) and Efi's home-made jam was delicious. There are three local tavernas with two being reached by a short stroll up the beach. The inhabitants of Melinta village are open, friendly and hospitable. I honestly cannot fault our stay at this lovely place and would recommend it without reservation. NOTE: we were in Lesvos at the height of the refugee crisis. I know this is a source of worry for many people, but those we encountered were never intimidating in any way. There are refugee camps at Mytiline and Moria and, whilst we were there, a constant stream of people making their way across the island. They do not inspire fear when you see them - only sympathy.
