About the property

GR596

The Beachcombers are situated in one of the best locations on the island, with amazing sea views. Halfway between the old village of Lindos, with its narrow streets and ancient acropolis, and the newer resort of Pefkos, with it’s long sandy beach. The south-east coast offers many lovely beaches, the nearest one down in the bay, less than 10 minutes walk away. St Paul's Bay, just along the coast, is a popular venue for weddings, and The Beachcombers offer ideal accommodation for Honeymooners and Guests. They offer traditional country style with tiled roofs and pine ceilings, combined with luxury furnishings and well equipped kitchens. The view is something extra special, with the dramatic cliffs to the right, and the sea spread like turquoise satin in front. If you adore the scent and colour of a well kept garden, if you like cooking with fresh herbs, if you can see yourself relaxing in the jacuzzi as the sun climbs across a clear blue sky, this is for you.

The Beachcombers are licensed by the Greek Tourism Organisation.

About Lorna Papaphilippou

We are Lorna and Tsam, a husband and wife team. I am British, originally from Cheshire, Tsam (Tsambikos) is Greek, originally from Lindos. We have been together for more than 35 years - here's one holiday romance that did last!

We have two grown up children and one grandchild.

We are very fortunate to be able to spend summer on this lovely island, where we have our own business. We return to the UK in winter, to spend time with our family and friends there, and they come out to visit whenever they can. We share our home with a very handsome German Shepherd called Timber.

We enjoy exploring the island when we have time - even after so many years we are still discovering new places. We especially enjoy walking in the pine forests in the interior of the island, visiting village tavernas for traditionally cooked food, and tasting the locally made wines.

Lorna Papaphilippou purchased this villa in 1980

Why Lorna Papaphilippou chose Greece

We bought the plot of land several years ago, but it was not until years later that we were able to develop it. We found ourselves in the position of either building, or seeing our planning permission expire, so we built....4 lovely villas! The trend at the time was for 'sugar cube' houses, but we wanted something a bit different, so we used wood and traditional terracotta roof tiles to give them character. The views from The Beachcombers are superb - looking out over Navarone Bay, with the cliffs to the right. The photos just don't do it justice. We never tire of the view of the sea - it varies in shades of blue according to time of day and weather conditions. At night, especially with the moon shining across it, it is beautiful.

What makes this villa unique

Being just between the villages, The Beachcombers are away from the crowds, but easily accessible.

We are lucky to have a good bus service, with a bus stop just a short walk away. Plenty of taxis pass by as well, so you can be in Lindos or Pefkos within a few minutes, even without a car.

What is special about these villas is the pools - we know from listening to our guests how important the pools are, especially in hot weather. These are larger than average pools, fully tiled, and with modern cleaning systems. Children will play happily for hours in the water, and if they are happy, Mum and Dad usually are, too! We included hydro-massage spas with the pools, because we think Mums & Dads deserve a bit of pampering as well.

Pebbles

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation at Pebbles was excellent, very clean with a super swimming pool, and there was a friendly welcome by the owners.

The location was quiet yet very near Lindos & Pefkos, and we couldn't fault the weather, it was very hot

We would recommend the bakers/supermarket at Pefkos and a trip up into the mountains to Profitas Ilias

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

The description and photos of the villa do not do it justice with a warm welcome from the owners Lorna & Sam. Well maintained and lovely and clean, "Pebbles" exceeded our expectations.

We spent a lot of our time in the pool which was lovely and the jacuzzi was an added bonus. Wonderful quiet location, with the mountains behind you and a beautiful view towards the sea from the garden.

Agathi beach (approx 15 minutes drive away) is a must if you like sandy beaches and water that is beautiful and clear.

Visit Valantinas in Lardos for fabulous food and a wonderful welcome and Mythos in Lindos for an equally good welcome and food with a fantastic view as the sun goes down.

Would highly recommend and we all hope to return in the future.

Many thanks

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beachcombers exceeded all expectations for us as a family. A gorgeous pool to ourselves, spa pool, outside shower and pretty gardens was perfect for a hot August holiday. Inside the property is finished to exceptional standards with plenty of clean linen and everything you need for a relaxed and comfortable stay. The views are just lovely across the sea and the mountains and the surrounding area is full of restaurants of a very high quality. You definitely need a car as its a bit of a walk to the road for the local buses but its worth doing anyway as there is so much to see and do across Rhodes. We are definitely going back.

Another Lovely Stay in Lindos

  • 5 of 5

We had another great stay in Lindos at Beachcombers. We chose to stay in Sandpiper this time as we wanted more privacy from our neighbours than was afforded in the other villas. Everything was as good as usual and Lorna and Tsam couldn't have been more helpful. We felt like we were home from the moment we arrived hot and tired on a Saturday night. Our 3 weeks there flew by and our girls (both teenagers) had to be dragged from the pool kicking and screaming. It's a big world out there with lots of places to visit during a summer break, but Lindos has such a pull for us! We hope to go back in the very near future!

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Each villa is equipped with remote controlled air conditioning, plus an energy saving solar panel which will provide up to 200 litres of hot water per hour. The Lindos area is normally one of the hottest on the island in summer, with temperatures often in the high 30s. The air conditioning units also have a heating function, should you require it, but usually the climate is perfect for enjoying the outdoors - the pool, the BBQ and the beautiful sea views. Outside: The villas stand on a generous private plot, fenced and accessed via an electric r/c gate for vehicles and a lockable pedestrian gate, offering an extra degree of security. A paved driveway behind each house provides ample parking space close to main doors, and there is extra parking space inside the gate for up to 4 vehicles. Each villa has a large garden, but the extra large grounds of Pebble and Sandpiper provide more space for children to play. The pools are 1.40 metres deep at their deepest point. They are in a figure 8 shape, 10 metres long, 6 metres wide (not including spa). The Spas are big enough for 6 to sit comfortably. There is an outdoor shower close to each pool. All pools benefit from modern filtration/chlorination sytems to ensure high standards of hygiene. The pools and spas are illuminated to make an enchanting picture after dark. Each villa has a BBQ, so guests can also enjoy cooking and eating outdoors on warm summer evenings.
