About Paul

My profession for over 25 years in working within the film industry,which has involved constant travel around the world,to different locations,with my family.I was born in England,but moved to Australia for many years,but work bought me back to Europe for most of the time! My wife is from New Zealand,so now,when not on location working,we either live at the villa Kalymnos,or spend time with family in New Zealand,it's a bit hectic at times,but we are lucky and love to travel!

Paul purchased this house in 2006

Why Paul chose Greece

With so much travel involved with work,and being in a position,that we can live really anywhere,we decided to find a unique haven in the world ,which gave peace and quietness ,and a relaxing lifestyle away from the rigors of work and travel.

On visiting Kalymnos over ten years ago,I stumbled across the land for sale on Kalymnos,on standing on the land and seeing the magnificent view across the Agean,the incredible landscape,the unique quietness of the surrounding area,and the wonderful people who live on Kalymnos,I was hooked,and knew this is where we want to live,hence buying the land ,and building the villa.The whole process has been amazing,and has become a gathering of friends and family,from all over the world,which has provided us with many great memories .When away working,we offer the villa for other like minded travelers ,who search for somewhere special to spend time with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

The villa offers for visitors to enjoy a true 'Greek' holiday,in our home.the setting is truly amazing,it is not touristy ,no big hotels,but everything is close by to enjoy ,great beaches and family run restaurants.It is a fast disappearing experience ,as the world becomes a faster place,this is like going back in time,as most travelers explain,just sitting out side ,with the scent of the wild herbs in the air,and the changing light during the day,and gentle ringing of bells,as the goats run freely around the surrounding landscape,is paradise ,not many places left in the world where daily,the man in his red truck comes by which is full of fruit vegetables,just give him a wave,and he will stop for you,or listen for the bus to come,wave from the porch,and it will stop and wait for you to come down the driveway to get on board! Travel into town with the locals! It's fantastic!

Location

Car: necessary

Surrounded by breathtaking mountains, against the vibrant blue of the Aegean Sea the island of Kalymnos and the area of the west coast, with its villages of Skalia and Emborios with beautiful sandy safe beaches. is breathtakingly beautiful.Once famous for its sponge divers,Kalymnos has be come a Mecca for those wanting the real Greek experiences now well known as one of the best rock-climbing destinations in the world, from rock-climbing,diving,bike riding,walking and exploring the many caves on the island,or sitting back on one of the many beaches,some thing for all to enjoy. Kalymians are very friendly proud people and will welcome you to this island one of the largest in the Dodeconese with a population close to 16,000. Every shop you could ask for are all at the busy Port Pothia, and tavernas all round the island in the most lovely quiet settings with the most wonderful views.An island great for couples and for families, as Kalymnos is very children safe and friendly. Truly unique.

Spring in Kalymnos

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on the island the last week of March for a spring trip to the island. We were very happy with the house. Upon arriving we were greeted by house manager and given directions to the house. When we arrived we were shown around the property and had the amenities explained to us. The house is situated on the road to Emporios . It was the perfect location to explore the island yet have a peaceful location to return to. You should have a car to stay at the house which was not an issue for us. There was a nice beach across the road and down a hill. It was a nice walk to the beach. The house was just renovated to a 3 bedroom home and a sunroom was added. The new sunroom/living room was perfect for having our morning coffee in the sun. The sunroom also had huge windows that could slide open to let the morning air in. Overall we loved the house and are already planning our next trip back to the island

Excellent address for relaxing days

  • 5 of 5

Pauls home is a perfect place for relaxing at the beach, discovering a relatively quiet island and people that love nature, diving, climbing and beautiful and small beaches. The house offers a real family home with outside and inside the complete picture for sunbathing, eating, talking and hanging out in quietness. The family that hosts the arrival and is of service during your stay is the perfect picture for Greek hospitality and family care. We had a very good week with our family of six. Thank you for this.

Living in a postcard.

  • 5 of 5

No words could truly capture the experience of staying in this beautiful home in this spectacular part of the world. It is so easy just to sit on the balcony for hours on end (sipping a wine of course!) and leisurely watching the world pass you by. The house is so clean and comfortable with everything you need to make your stay relaxing and memorable. We hired a car and enjoyed travelling around the island,shopping and dining out at great tavernas but for us nothing could beat buying the local food and cooking on the outside BBQ while enjoying the view of the Aegean sea. We definitely recommend this holiday destination to everyone, it has been 6 months since our visit and we can't stop talking about the great time we had. Special thanks to Harry for sharing his wealth of local knowledge and settling us into the house. This made our stay hassle free. We are already planning our return trip!

Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

my wife and I stayed for two weeks in late july into early august. I’m not sure there’s anything I can say about the house that hasn’t already been said. we’d seen all the photos and we knew what was awaiting us, and yet nothing could prepare us for how good it was.

we had stayed in Istanbul in the week leading up to our time on kalymnos, so in many ways it was like going from 100km/h to 10km/h. to be honest, our initial thoughts were concern that we might have been a little too isolated. but we jumped on our scooter and found emborios just a few minutes away and we were instantly placated. even closer still is kalamies, where you will find friendly pirates and chilled-out beats.

kalymnos was a complete unknown to us. and emborios is the quiet end of the island. on the few occasions we ventured further afield and were asked where we were staying, it never failed to raise an eyebrow when we said “emborios” – and I mean that in a good way. and having been there now for two weeks, I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else.

the food at the local tavernas is all very good. but there’s nothing quite like cooking up a storm on that fabulous bbq overlooking the Aegean. harry can point out a great butcher in pothia and you’re on your way. look out for George as he drives his fruit and vege truck towards emborios. you can wave him down at the foot of the driveway and buy your fruits and veges fresh fresh fresh.

as others have also said, harry was a tremendous help to us. he dropped by once or twice just to make sure everything was okay, which was very much appreciated – even bringing his family to say hi. that family connection helped to made the whole stay feel even more homely than it already was. having a few supplies in the fridge and the pantry on arrival was invaluable.

the worst part of the two weeks was the taxi coming up the driveway at the end of it. hopefully one day we will return.

Beautiful House on a Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful house in a beautiful location on a beautiful island. As we rolled round the corner in our hire car on the windy island road and saw the house up on the side, we were 'wowed', we knew that we would love it and love our holiday.

We have stayed on Kalymnos many times in the last 15 years but this was the first time we rented a holiday house. It was perfect and quickly went from a holiday house to our home for our 10 day stay.

The property has everything you need for eating, drinking and living - inside or outside and Harry's fabulous introduction and instruction ensured we knew what were doing. There was more than enough room for 4 adults without being under each other's feet and we loved the huge covered verandah with dining table and kitchen area.

There are small supermarkets and fruit/veg vendors in Emborios or back along the road to Massouri and Myrties so it is not too far to get basic provisions and to be tempted by the great cafes and tavernas for a snack or meal. We did eat a few times on the verandah and so we used the large supermarkets on the road into Pothia where you can find everything you needed.

The are many fabulous beaches and pools that visitors can use on the island, each with their own specialities but I think that the Pirate Beach would be very hard to beat and being only two minutes by car from the house it was perfect. Sun beds that you can dangle your feet in the sea from, sun shades over tables, great food and the best 'frappe medrio' on the island, if not the world.

I have left the best to last - the view - it is breathtaking. The colours change throughout the day from the bright freshness in the morning when the sea seems at it's bluest to the evening when the colours deepen with the shadows and you can watch the small yachts heading into Pirate Beach and Emborios to moor up for the night. The view all the way along the island to Myrties and Massouri and across to Telendos is mesmerising, night and day.

We loved the house and couldn't have been happier with both the booking and arrival arrangements. Paul was helpful and always prompt in his email replies and then when we arrived, Harry was friendly and helpful too. As regular visitors to Kalymnos we didn't need much in way of logistics but Paul offered to arrange food for the house on our arrival and anything else that we needed which would have been a great help if we were new to the island.

We can't wait to return!!! Thank you

Owner's Response: We are so happy that all that we love and want to share with our "home" on Kalymnos is shown in such wonderful response.It is difficult to relay the stunning beauty of the location,and all that is has to offer at times on a website.The uniqueness and serenity of the villa is what we wish all to experience . Harry our house manager,is unique himself,and offers up help,information,and makes all welcome,and gives security that help is close by if ever it is needed.We look forward to all that wish to visit Kalymnos,and share this idyllic location for themselves Again,we thank all for injoying our home and look forward for their return .
