About Garry &; Maxine Stanley

Garry and Maxine from Newcastle upon Tyne.

Garry &; Maxine Stanley purchased this house in 2010

Why Garry &; Maxine Stanley chose Charaki

After holidaying in Lindos for over 17 years we decided to look for our "own place" in wonderful Rhodes. We bought Olive Grove House in 2010 potentially so that we could "retire" in a few years. Therefore we have decorated it, not as a "holiday let" but as somewhere we would feel "at home" in. 2010 was our first year of letting and we asked for comments from those who stayed so that we could get things right for renting and from the feedback we think we have achieved this!

What makes this house unique

The people are the major benefit - fabulously friendly and helpful.

We are located in the most peaceful of areas but within easy walking distance of Haraki Bay.

Watch for the mouflons meandering around the house - brilliant!

Watch for the shooting stars at night - amazing!

Most of all - enjoy your time there - we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our holidays were really perfect: a really quiet house, with lot of commodities (our children liked a lot the swimming pool !), a good situation for visits, a sandy beach few minutes away, and friendly people." Fabien, Cecile and family - France.

"If you're looking for privacy then here it is! Perfect. Well impressed with house and location. You are right the locals are friendly. We had fab food, fab drink and fab weather." J Watson and family - Edinburgh.

"Just what we needed - excellent time had by all. We loved the visits of the sheep and goats! Sat out until early hours with ouzo and wine and made full use of pool - thank you. Will definitely be back again" Peter and pals - Brighton.

Lovely holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love coming to stay at Olive Grove House. I have been here with my family on 3 occasions now and would definitely go back again. Lovely location and the house is perfect. It is very well equipped with everything you could need. The children love the inflatable pool and the safe, secure garden for them to play. We hire a car when we stay which makes exploring Rhodes even better. Garry and Maxine were brilliant at communicating with us and very helpful. Best places we visited were Agathi Beach and Epta Springs, although the kids did enjoy the shopping trip to Jumbo! My children loved sipping their non alcoholic cocktails at Bottoms up and Jacobs. Would recommend this place to stay to anyone. Cant wait for our next holiday there.

Fabulous - a true home from home

  • 5 of 5

Superb holiday base with everything you could need. Adored the outside space and really appreciated the amazing pool(!). We NEVER go on holiday and STAY IN - but we did here - it is so easy to relax. BBQ aflame, iced drinks as and when needed and the occasional slightly cool breeze was a god send.

Haraki is a fantastic place to meet and make friends, the locals are extremely friendly and genuine people. Beaches are SO clean. Every taverna serves exquisite food - what more could one ask for?!

Go - enjoy - we did x

A lovely house with perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We chose Haraki because I knew the area from working there 30 years ago. Haraki is a perfect base for lovely beaches and for exploring around Rhodes especially with the main highway just up the road.

I was delighted to see that although there was more development in Haraki, it retained its sleepy ex-fishing village feel, keeping a lot of the charm but with more choice of tavernas and a few bars. Sunsets over the bay with the lights slowly illuminating under Feraklos Castle were wonderful.

Olive Grove House was perfect - light and airy, with shade or sun at any time of the day. There was plenty of space in the house, and wonderful outside seating including a newly-built barbecue which we used on alternate evenings. Olive Grove House is decorated to an excellent standard with all you need for a holiday, including a washing machine, iron, hairdryer etc.

With a private garden and driveway, there was never the worry of finding a parking space, or needing to walk a long way to the house with heavy shopping.

I would recommend Haraki for an area in which to stay, and particularly recommend Olive Grove House.

Car: recommended


The house is in a peaceful position just over a kilometre from the centre of the village set back from the road. A 2 minutes drive or 10 minute easy flat walk. There are two beautiful beaches, one providing sun-beds - pebbles at one end and sand at the other. Agathi Beach is a 3 minute drive and has a fantastic safe sandy beach and shallow waters with three tavernas.


Nearest airport is Rhodes Diagoras and is a 40 minute drive. Car hire is recommended but not essential as there is a bus service which runs into Rhodes Town/Falariki and Lindos/Pefkos. We highly recommend M&S car hire for your stay and will give you all details and prices on request.


We are a 15 minute drive from Lindos and a 3 minute drive to Agathi Beach. Haraki Bay is within walking distance.

Further Details:

Our house is located a very short distance from Haraki village, a flat walk, no hills to climb! Please note there are no cash machines in Haraki.
