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 !

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.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well appointed villa - on the outskirts of Pilonas - a small village between Lindos and Lardos. It is one of several similar villas but is well screened and private. The fittings and fixtures are of the highest standards - it feels like a well loved home rather than a holiday let. There are a huge amount of restaurants within a 5 minute drive and a host of beaches to choose from as well so as long as you are happy to drive its position is very good. We had a great holiday - the sea and pool were plenty warm enough to swim in and we were blessed with warm October sunshine. I could not recommend this villa highly enough.

High quality villa very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay at Villa Maya.The Villa was very comfortable, tastefully furnished,and well equipped for the six of us.There was a large lounge, good sized kitchen and three double Bedrooms, with a bathroom and shower room.We had a great time. Outside there were plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas , large clean pool and table and chairs for dining.

The location is quiet and although Pefcos is slightly inland Lindos and sandy beaches were only few minutes away.

St Pauls bay and Lindos beach were sandy and very shallow and safe for bathing.

Good patisserie on roundabout next to Supermarket for huge croissants! I would recommend Villa Maya to anyone.

Private paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the curated art & gorgeous gardens to the gentle wind chimes and rooftop stargazing, this Villa is a dream. It offers privacy and a chance to pull back from beach crowds to enjoy quieter times poolside. We could hop over to Lindos quickly and easily. But we're just as happy enjoying the villa itself! The AC and movie selection made for comfy nights in.
