About the property

4 Bedroom Villa, Sleeps 9, 3 Bathrooms, Private Pool, Popular Central Location

Villa Diamantina

EOT License 1476K92000392201. (Please go to dedicated villa website www.luxuryvillarhodes.com for better pictures, video and much more information).

Fully booked for 2017. Now taking bookings for 2018.

One of a group of 3 exclusive detached villas in a peaceful location easily reached from the main Rhodes-Lindos road. The villa sits on a hillside with spectacular panoramic views including the famous Tsambika beach and monastery and a broad expanse of blue Aegean Sea.

It is a newly built, well appointed and impressive property, tastefully furnished and styled in modern design and with a heated swimming pool. The ground floor comprises a spacious open plan living and dining area and a double bedroom with bathroom. The spiral marble staircase leads to the second floor where there is the large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and two twin bedrooms served by a family bathroom. All rooms open onto balconies, decking or patios with sea views. (Note - the villa is designed to sleep 8 but has a maximum occupancy of 9 - with an additional fold out bed. Please enquire if you wish to accommodate 9 adults for details). The villa is fully air conditioned. The kitchen is equipped with a full range of modern appliances. There is large screen satellite TV system with hundreds of channels including all major UK channels and movies on demand, Bluray/DVD, AppleTV and games console. A mobile phone and unlimited wireless internet are available for guest use.

The villa is set on a three quarter acre plot with spacious private gardens featuring olive, citrus fruit and conifer trees and a variety of shrubs and a small established pine wood. There is a large, private heated infinity swimming pool (heated pools are rare on the island of Rhodes) with spacious tiled sun decks equipped with plenty of sunbeds, chairs and sun umbrellas. There is a BBQ and pagoda. Two large granite tables provide the option of fine dining either in the shade of the pagoda or the decking. There is parking space for up to 3 cars.

The location of the villa, midway along the popular east coast, could not be better to fully enjoy the island. The famous Tsambika beach is a short drive down the hill (or walk for the more adventurous); this is widely regarded as the best on the island with a kilometre of golden sand fully equipped with beach facilities and water sports. This is overlooked by the spectacular and historic hilltop Tsambika monastery. There are numerous local tavernas. The Panorama Restaurant, with its spectacular views of Tsambika beach and monastery, is only 10 minutes walk away. Rhodes Town is 25 minutes drive with its famous medieval walled old town and picturesque harbour. The beautiful village of Lindos is 20 minutes drive in the opposite direction. The local town of Archangelos is 5 minutes drive and offers a full range of shops and facilities. The airport is 30 minutes drive. Other picturesque beach resorts within easy reach include Haraki, Stegna and Kolymbia. There is easy access to the beautiful central mountain region with its tiny villages clinging to the hillsides. An 18 hole golf course is 10 minutes away.

A car is considered essential to fully enjoy a holiday at the villa.

Recently completed, we are now proud to offer the villa on a self catering basis for others to enjoy for parts of the year when we are not enjoying it ourselves.. It is ideal for couples, families or groups of friends.

What makes this villa unique

The heated infinity pool is 9m x 5m (much bigger than most private villa pools) and plenty large enough to swim properly in.

Unlike most villas, which are very close to their neighbours (almost semi-detached in many cases) ours is set in genuinely expansive gardens. There are fabulous views of Tsampika beach and monastery.

The location is, in our opinion, the best in the island, within easy reach of both Rhodes Town and Lindos. The villa overlooks the fabulous Tsampika beach (a kilometre of golden sand) and is in the immediate vicinity of the lovely coastal villages of Archangelos-Stegna and Haraki. There is an excellent taverna within comfortable walking distance and many others close by.

The villa is superbly well furnished and equipped throughout. This is unusual for rental villas which are often equipped with very basic “packages” (cheap towels and fragmented sets of crockery). Not least because the owners spend a very significant amount of time at the villa, ours is equipped to a luxurious standard from the kitchen (right down to the champagne flutes) to the bedding (Egyptian cotton) to the towels (Christie or PRL). The entertainment system (40 inch flat screen, Internet, BluRay and X-Box360) has recently been upgraded with a TV package that features all major UK and European TV channels (including Sky Sports and Sky Movies).

The owners go to huge trouble, helped by our friends on the island, who look after the villa on a week by week basis, to look after all our guests. Every person who has visited the villa has come back genuinely delighted by their stay. A very high proportion of our guests make return visits.

Rhodes is a fabulous island to visit. Tourism on the island was entirely unaffected throughout the recent economic crisis. Rhodes has been untouched by the migrant situation which has sadly afflicted some other Greek islands.

Such a Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I would like to stress how helpful and friendly Patricia was with giving details about the villa or nearby places to go/see. She was a massive help and always kept check of her emails as she would always reply back very quick. The description and details of the villa were very accurate regarding the layout, location and facilities. Upon our arrival the villa was in an immaculate condition, lovely and clean and well presented. I would 100% recommend this villa to family or friends, its very spacious and the views are absolutely amazing! We have wrote a review in the book at the villa stating places we enjoyed, these are a must:

Rhodes Old Town - we wish we went here more than once!

Tsambika Beach - beautiful beach, we did watersports and enjoyed a gyros in one of the food places there.

Lindos - lovely market and we enjoyed a meal on one of the many rooftop terraces.

St Pauls Bay - My brother got married here and it is such a beautiful spot.

We did hire a car which is needed but I thoroughly enjoyed driving and exploring the island, there are supermarkets not far from the villa, which came in handy as there were 8 of us so we just filled the fridge/freezer. Overall, there is nothing negative to say, we enjoyed our holiday and the villa, I have never had holiday blues so bad! Would highly recommend it, Patricia and her family were always so helpful :-) Thank you!

Immaculate private pool and stunning sea views

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa and immaculate pool. We chose this villa because of the pool and we weren't disappointed - it was the most immaculate pool we've ever had. The only thing that could have improved it would have been if the pool had been heated, as believe it or not, it's a bit chilly in September! But, it was perfect for cooling off in during the heat of the day. The privacy afforded by the mature gardens and spectacular views of the sea were also perfect for us. David and Elaine who look after the property for the owners were lovely and couldn't be more responsive or helpful. It was also nice to speak to the owners before we went and the information they provided about local amenities was really useful.

My brother joined us for a few days and was really impressed at how easy it would be to bring his children out here for a holiday - he thought that it would be much easier to keep an eye on them whilst they played in the pool here, rather than at a resort, and they could use the villa as a safe base from which to enjoy the many activities available for days out. He's already planning to bring his family out here together with friends next year!

Overall, it was a lovely place to relax in and is in the best area in Rhodes in our opinion (not too far from the airport, on the Mediterranean side of the island, near great beaches and really good tavernas). The other thing that could have improved our experience would have been a welcome pack, such as bottled water, tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, cheese, like you get at other villas of similar quality, especially after travelling for twelve hours to get there only to find out we've got to get back in the car and drive ten minutes to the nearest supermarket to get refreshments. So, our advice is to call at a supermarket on your way to the villa - that's what we'll be doing next time!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to our guests for their positive review. We are pleased that they enjoyed their stay and are keen to come again. From May 2017 we will have a pool heater installed which should make the pool somewhat warmer! The specification suggests a temperature of 27 degrees. When guests arrive late in the day we offer to buy groceries on their behalf. For guests arriving during shopping hours (this guest had an agreed early arrival at midday) we recommend a particularly good supermarket on the way from the airport. However we will be providing welcome packs for next season. We were a little disappointed to receive a first review that has not been five star, although are pleased that this did not seem to overall reflect the holidaymakers experience.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in late August to September 2016. The villa is located on a hill and has beautiful views of the surrounding hills, the beach and sea. The journey up the twisting private road up to the villa was an experience especially on the first night, in the dark with a fully loaded 9 seater mini-van! The villa is in a good location and within easy driving distance to Rhodes Town, Lindos and the airport. We made trips to Haraki and Maria's taverna for dinner and Tsampika and Agathi beaches, both beautiful.

Thank you to the owner Patricia who very kindly arranged a very late dinner on our arrival night at the local Panorama restaurant.

The villa's outdoor space is lovely, although some bushes could do with a trim to enable you to enjoy the landscape more. The living space and kitchen could be slightly larger given that we were 7 adults and 3 kids, but it was sufficient. Patricia's red folder - 'The Bible' was very helpful, providing directions and suggestions. I would say its worth driving to Lidl, which is about 25-30 mins drive towards Rhodes town, as this is far cheaper than other supermarkets. The other supermarket near Afandou is also well stocked.

Lovely weather and lovely private villa with breathtaking views. I would definately recommend.

The property was exactly as shown in the information. Idyllic.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect peace and quite for a family of 7 adults keen to relax and frequently cool off in the pool. With 2 hire cars access to other activities and restaurants was easy and all the recommendations that we tried out were ideal.

Traumhafte Lage der Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wir machten zu acht einen Urlaub in Rhodos und mieteten dazu diese Villa. Sie war genauso wie hier beschrieben. Die Ausstattung ist hochwertig und die Villa war sehr sauber. Die Anlage ist groß und liebevoll gestaltet.

Auch der Kontakt zu den Vermietern der Villa war sehr gut und stets höflich und freundlich. Wir wurden mit einem kleinen Briefchen, in dem Tipps für Sehenswürdigkeiten standen, willkommen geheißen.

Wir werden diese Villa im kommenden Jahr wieder mieten und daher empfehlen wir sie zu 100 %!

Die Lage der Villa ist nicht nur wegen der atemberaubenden Aussicht ideal. Auch erreicht man in wenigen Autominuten viele schöne Plätze, die Rhodos zu bieten hat. Der Tsambika Beach oder auch der kleine Ort Archanchelos ist in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Auch die Bucht in Archanchelos in der es eine sehr schöne Fischtaverne gibt, ist leicht erreichbar und wunderschön.

Wir bedanken uns hier nochmals für den tollen und sehr netten Kontakt und freuen uns heute schon auf einen erneuten Urlaub in Rhodos
