About Shane Coull

My wife and I live in England, I am English, my wife is Russian. We met in 1992 when I worked in Moscow. We married in 1994 and we returned to England in 1997. We have 2 children Thomas born in 1999 and Matthew born in 2001.

Why we chose Rhodes.

My wife and I first visited Rhodes in 1993 and we fell in love with the island straight away. It was always a dream to buy a villa in Rhodes and this dream came true in 2008 when we bought the property off plan. The property was finally completed in October 2009. Location on the island was very important to us and Vlicha Bay was exactly where we wanted to be.

Location - Vlicha Bay is so beautiful, the villa nestled on the moutainside overlooking the sea and just a 2 minute walk down to the fantastic beach.

Shane Coull purchased this villa in 2010

Why Shane Coull chose South Aegean

Vlicha Bay.

The view from the road is enough to entice you. Just before you turn the corner to Lindos you can see the bay with the bluest, clearest water imaginable. A beautiful beach excellent for swimming. Vlicha bay is a peaceful location ideal for relaxing, and it's close proximity to Lindos makes it the ideal. Shops, tavernas and bars are all available on the beach.


Just 5 minutes away, Lindos has everything to offer, supermarkets, banks, tavernas and restuarants and a beautiful beach. At night Lindos boasts some of the finest bars on the island.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Hemera unlike the other villa's of the same design in the bay is built higher up the moutainside and as a result has the most spectacular views you will find in Vlicha Bay.

Good location and spacious villa.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the very comfortable, clean and spacious villa with fantastic outdoor area and stunning pool. The welcome pack was most appreciated, having driven from the airport late at night. Waking up the next morning we were greeted by the spectacular view which overlooks the bay and out to sea. Throughout the week we took the opportunity to eat alfresco each day and take in the warmth of the sunshine whilst relaxing around the pool reading. At the bottom of the hill (about 2-3 min walk) is the beach front and a couple of restaurants catering for a snack, lunch, dinner or just a cocktail. There are a number of other great places to eat not far from the villa for those wishing to venture out and we enjoyed the delights of Lindos and Lardos on a couple of evenings.

In summary, a great and comfortable villa with good facilities situated in a stunning location.

Stunning views across the bay

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including three children aged from 6 to 13, had a wonderful time. The villa is impressive and very well maintained.

The views by day and night are beautiful and the fact that Vlicha bay is much quieter than Lindos really suited us. We had a car and visited Lindos, which was less than 10 minutes away on several occasions (less hectic after 5 or 6pm when the tourist buses have gone) and were able to find some lovely beaches - our favourite was the secluded and sandy Glystra beach about 15-20mins away.

There are two restaurants with nice quiet, relaxed bars at the bottom of the hill, which are less than a two-minute walk (although you need to add another minute getting back up the hill). We absolutely loved the food at the Lindian Jewel Azzuro and the staff were very warm and friendly. The Azzuro also does takeaways which was handy when we arrived late on our first night.

There was also a very useful welcome pack awaiting us in the villa which was perfect for the morning before we had a chance to go to the supermarket for our first shop. There is a mini-market on the doorstep by the restaurants at the bottom of the hill, but we tended to go to a bigger one in our car which is less than five minutes away.

The beach was mostly shingle, but in a lovely setting and there is a sandy area to the right-hand side of the bay.

We are definitely considering returning, and we found the owner, Shane, to be very responsive and helpful from the time of booking, through to, and even during our stay.

Would highly recommend...

Beautiful Villa in a Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in Shane's villa. From arrival when we were greeted by the incredible views and a very generous welcome pack, we enjoyed every minute.

The villa is clean and well equipped and the pool is the best we've had to date.

The location of the villa means that you can walk to the beach, shops and local bar/restaurants. The bar at the bottom of the hill is particularly good with very friendly staff. Buses and taxis are readily available to take you on the short journey into Lindos.

I would highly recommend Shane's villa to anyone.

Villa Hemera is situated approx 200 metres from the sandy beach of Vlicha Bay, one of Rhodes most beautiful beaches, ideal for young children. Water sports, beach bars, tavernas and supermarkets are all available on the beach.


Flights to Rhodes Diagoras Airport, 50 minutes drive from your villa, are easily available from all major cities. Car hire is available to explore the beautiful island and can be pre-booked and arranged to be at the airport or villa upon your arrival. Taxis are easily available and the local bus service is a cheap and cheerful way to get around the towns and villages.


You are 40 minutes drive from Rhodes Town. You are 30 minutes drive from Faliraki. Afandou is 20 minutes drive away, and Lindos is just 5 minutes drive away. Car hire, taxi's and the local bus service are available if you want to explore this beautiful island.

Further Details:

Villa Hemera. Ideally situated just 2 minutes from the beach in a beautiful location with uninterrupted panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and surrounding mountainside. Vlicha Bay. The view from the road will be enough to entice you. Just before you turn the corner for Lindos you will see the large bay with the bluest, clearest water imaginable. The beach is excellent for swimming. Bars, tavernas, shops, car hire and taxi rank are all available in and around the beach.

Just 5 minutes drive away is the beautiful town of Lindos, built around the impressive Acropolis. Lindos has approximately 1000 inhabitants and is probably the most famous village in Greece. The architecture and decoration of the Lindian houses is unique and many of the houses date back to the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The town has everything to offer its guests, shops to please the most fervent bargain hunter, supermarkets, banks, tavernas and restaurants, and a beautiful beach. At night Lindos boasts some of the finest bars on the island.

Afandou boasts the only golf course on the island, although 18 holes in the middle of August is for the enthusiast only!

Renowned for it's bustling nightlife with many bars, restaurants, snack bars, shops and clubs, Faliraki offers plenty to do on and off the beach.

Rhodes Town - the capital of the island has two parts, the old town and the new town. Any time taken to explore here is time well spent by both day and night.
