Whether you are looking for an active holiday or for some relaxation both can be enjoyed on this beautiful island of Rhodes. The peace and quiet can begin at Villa Maya (which is Greek for magic!). Situated in the quietest area of the development, at the edge of a traditional small village and just a 5 min drive from the spectacular and world famous village of Lindos. Villa Maya enjoys panoramic views of the surrounding hills, olive groves and the distant Mt Ataviros which can be viewed either while relaxing around the pool or sunbathing on the secluded 1st floor sun terrace. The house sits on one of the largest plots on the development affording our guests plenty of breathing space, the gardens are mature and inspiring! The villa is south facing and sun worshippers will relish the all day sunshine. When you want a change you are within a 5 minute drive of several wonderful beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had some wonderful guests...some of their comments are below.

08/2014-Martin &fam:'Utterly Brilliant'.

This is without doubt the best Villa we have ever stayed in; a true home-from-home with impeccable facilities, furnishings and décor; with the added advantage of your very own swimming pool. We couldn't have wished for anything more.

07/2014-Tony &fam:'Excellent holiday'.

My personal preference is for a high standard villa with own pool and in quiet but scenic location.Villa maya is all of these things.


'Exquisitely Sublime!'. The Villa was absolutely perfect for our needs! And had so much more than we expected!

08/13-Audrey & Sam:

We were heartbroken to leave !..if you're looking for the ideal place to relax, want to enjoy luxurious accommodation & your own private pool then look no further.

07/13- Tony&fam:

Perfect holiday home in an ideal location. We would absolutely recommend this villa ! We had such a great time !

Really you will not be disappointed with this. Well equipped, excellent air con, great pool, quiet but convenient area. It is clear that the owner Dea (who was very helpful) has wanted to get things right here, and frankly - she has.

The most perfect villa in a beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this villa enough.I haven't stayed in such a well equipped villa.The pool is just gorgeous and huge for the size of the villa. To sum it all up I couldn't find any faults at all in location or the villa or the hosts responses to all our needs. And thanks to the lovely Scotsman Will who showed us around and helped with recomendations .

Dea and George well done and thanks for letting us enjoy your special home .

A Beautiful Authentic Villa with Peaceful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Villa Maya.  Loved it!!  It was really lovely to stay in a such a peaceful and beautiful place with everything we needed.  

The villa is stunning and set in lovely gardens. It was spotlessly clean and had a real homely feel. The welcome pack was great and better than we've had previously in other villas.  We arrived late at night and it was all exactly as we needed.

The villa was spotlessly clean and full of character, the pool was very spacious, the rooms were lovely, the towels were good quality and there was even a box with bats and balls, snorkels and masks and badminton etc. which were really handy and appreciated.

The owners were lovely and provided all the information we needed. Overall a fabulous experience!

A fabulous villa with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous villa with all the comforts of home (and more) if you are looking for a quiet holiday villa this is it.

It is a short drive to Lindos or Lardos I recommend Lardos for dinner but you can bbq we found the fishmonger and butchers in lardos very well priced and valintinos restaurant excellent value for money as were all the tavernas in Lardos

If you are thinking of booking villa Maya just do it you won't be disapointed

Beautiful tranquil villa, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Me, my boyfriend & another couple stayed at the end of September for one week. The Location of the villa is absolutely perfect. It's about a 5 mins drive from Lindos, so is out of the way enough to be private and quiet, but close enough to be able taxi back late after a boozy dinner!

We rented a car, which really is a necessity for the island as a whole - there is so much to see, you want to have the freedom to be able to explore without catching the local buses.

Lindos town is a real idyllic Greek old town, full of roof top restaurants and bars serving authentic Greek cuisine. I have been quite a few times to Lindos, but my fiends whose first time it was, just wanted to go back night after night! A couple of times we went down to the beach at midnight for a night swim, which I would definitely recommend...and the water in the bay is so warm at that time of year, that it was basically like a massive bath! Sooo nice!

The best day we had though was when we rented a boat from Faliraki and took it down the coast of the island. A-MAZ-ING!!

The villa itself is really perfect. Nice big pool with loungers that gets the sun all day, and when it gets to the evening you can still get the sun for a few hours on the roof terrace upstairs. Great patio seating area by the pool out the front, and a good sized kitchen table for meals inside if you feel like it. We also made use of the BBQ on around 3 of the nights, we went and got fish & prawns from the nearby town of Lardos which was delicious.

Nice big living area with ipod dock, tv, dvd player, dvd's and books, basically everything you would have at your own home, so there always something to do in the evenings when we felt like staying in. And a backgammon board for playing in the shade in the day time :)

Bedrooms were lovely, with aircon in all of them, (and balconies!) loads of cupboard space, and hairdryers (such a hassle to have to carry those around!)

I would definitely recommend this Villa when staying in Rhodes. Perfect for a few couples or for a family. The house itself is so nice and well finished that I wouldn't really recommend it for groups of friends who are looking to have a messy time on the island! You're better off looking for a place in the town or in one of the nearby party towns if you're looking for that. But this place is perfect if you want a bit of time to yourself, with a homely base to come back to after a day of explore all of the beautiful beaches that the island has to offer.

Car: recommended


Whether it's the fun of messing about on the water - pedaloes, canoes, banana boats, waterskiing (if that's your thing !) - or just lounging around on sandy shores, you'll be spoilt for choice. Within a 5 minute drive of several wonderful beaches.


Rhodes Diagoras International Airport is a 40 min drive from the Villa. Hiring a car is strongly recommended. Direct flights from most major airports in the UK to Rhodes (Diagoras International Airport), main carriers are Easyjet, Ryanair, Monarch, Thomson, Thomas Cook & Aegean Airways. Flights and ferries from Athens to Rhodes Town. Car hire firms are aplenty-at the airport are the usual giants- Hertz, Avis etc, some local companies and AutoHolidays and Holidayautos which can be booked online and are often the cheapest.


5 mins walk to village, 5 mins drive to Lindos & Lardos beaches, 7 mins to Glystra. Full information guide with places of interest to visit, restaurants, activities, doctors, chemists, etc is available in the house.

Further Details:

It is just a 5 min walk to the village centre with its tavernas, mini-markets and the unusual and lovely bell tower and church of St. Gerasimos. 3 mins drive to large supermarket and ice-cream parlour/bakery. 5 mins drive to Lindos beach, cafes, ATM's, shops and supermarkets. Very vibrant night life with cafes, bars and nightclubs. Lindos is the most spectacular village on the island and just a 5 min drive away. A fabulous confection of sugar cube houses clinging to a hillside crowned by an Acropolis - a 4th century temple to the Goddess Athena - on each side an extraordinary vista of turquoise sea. Beaches of Pefkos, Lardos ( water sports) and Glystra within 7 mins drive, all golden sand.

Go karting and Crazy golf in Lardos. Prassonisi (wind and kite surfing beach) 40 kms south world famous and great for a whole day out - make sure you take a sunhat and loads of suncream! Infamous party village of Faliraki 30 mins drive away - fun for the young and young at heart! Afandou Golf course a 20 mins drive away, award winning par 72 course, enjoy! Valley of the Butterflies, (Petaloudes) Seven Springs (Efta Piges) and the beautiful pine trees on Mt Ataviros at the centre of the island. The list is endless. Rhodes Old Town itself is the best preserved medieval town in Europe - a vast walled citadel which is an UNESCO world heritage site. Take a walk along the top of the gigantic walls and get a birds eye view of the old town, Mandraki harbour and the azure sea beyond. Browse in the many tourist shops that crowd the busy cobbled streets, eat and drink to your hearts content (go on, you're on holiday!) in any one of the dozens of cafes and tavernas, visit the museums, mosques & the Street of the Knights where you will feel that you've stepped back in time.

When you've had your fill exit through one of the many impressive gates and visit the New Town with its trendy shops and cafes, not forgetting to visit the 4 umbrella shops in Lambraki St! Enjoy!
