About the property

House in Haraki, Lindos, Rhodes, Greece - Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Walk To The Stunning Haraki Bay

A detached house set within an olive grove with balconies to both bedrooms. The large sun terrace and private garden provides the ideal setting for outdoor living and relaxation. Fully air-conditioned. Perfect choice for families, couples or just friends! We are in a brilliant location for ramblers, artists and anyone looking to 'get away from it all', but can be in the centre of a fantastic friendly village within a few minutes where you will find tavernas, restaurants and supermarkets. A 15 minute drive will take you to Lindos Village.

About Garry &; Maxine Stanley

Garry and Maxine from Newcastle upon Tyne.

Garry &; Maxine Stanley purchased this house in 2010

Why Garry &; Maxine Stanley chose Rhodes

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.

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.
